Creative Tech Week EXPO at Industry City in Brooklyn
Hyphen Hub showcased artists from our community that are working developing products that have “I.P” intellectual property value. The artists featured were:
Gina Czarnecki – “My pods”
Designed by ground-breakingnew media artist Gina Czarnecki, MyPods are the most elegant, modern and distinguished product on the market.
Higly influenced by the arena of bio-medical science, Czarnecki has created the only "coffin" that is fullybiodegradable sustainable and strong whilst also being accepted by all crematororiums and burial grounds.
It's a brand new sape, a brand new material - a brand new way of celebrating life.
Juan Cortes - “ Arduino glove”
Cortés has been experimenting for several years in constructing artistic instruments with old technologies, in order to use them in the creation of sounds and images. The glove has a sensor and a copper coil. When used, it transforms electromagnetic wave signals into vibration producing sounds or images. This refers to the detection system of the gray Pacific sharks in the Chocó region. Cortes' project is about to expand the possibilities of the glove and also to be able to turn it into a detection tool that supports the processes of mine destruction in populations affected by war
Marco Donnarumma and Heidi Boisvert - "XTH Sense"
These two artists teamed up to create the Xth Sense, XTH Sense™ - The world’s first biocreative instrument. XTH Sense is a biowearable that lets you create music, play games and experience VR using the amplified sounds and motion of your body.
Alon Ilsar - "AirSticks"
Using state of the art motion capture devices in the form of the Razer Hydra Gaming
Controllers, the AirSticks track the user’s movement to allow them to trigger and
manipulate sounds and visuals by slashing and striking through the air.
Like electronic pads and other percussive gestural instruments, the AirSticks
allow the control of the timing and velocity of sound. But they also allow the control of
the attack, sustain, release and morphing of sound through the one gesture. In this
way the AirSticks are more like a keyboard synthesiser, or a percussive 3D
But it’s the AirSticks’ relationship with Ableton Live that really separates it
from its competition. Ableton’s Push has already revolutionized the way we interact
with music software. The AirSticks bring this a step further, embodying our
interaction with the computer for the composition, performance and improvisation of
electronic music, allowing us excess to all the possibilities of Ableton Live through
intuitive body movements.
