Interaction techniques for live video remixing and manipulation

Amalienstr.17 room 208


Diploma Thesis (6 Month)

Project Description:

The Fluidum Instrumented Environment in the basement of Amalienstr. 17 simulates future environments, where displays and computational power is abundant everywhere in our surroundings. With the new possibilities of media storage, access and manipulation with and on the walls, floors and furniture in our environments, we slowly develop new means of understanding and interacting with digital media.

In this project a student is asked to develop an application that investigates how these technologies influence our relationships with videos in a playful and creative way. The main focus is on investigating how the possibilities to display, and interact with, video material on every surface, as well as the possibility to literally touch the displayed information, can be used to enable artists to alter, manipulate and remix video streams in real time.

Therefore different interaction techniques for video editing, mixing and even alienation shall be implemented both on the Fluidum Interactive Table and the Display Wall in the Basement of Amalienstr. 17.

The implemented application clearly is not meant for office or professional use but should be playful, creative and enable artists to alter videos in new ways.

Required Skills:

Java, Creativity, Interest in pop-/video-culture and arts
