Toshio Iwai <ul><li>Japanese interactive media and installation artist who has also created a number of commercial video games. In addition he has worked in television, music performance, museum design and digital musical instrument design. </li></ul>
Ryoji Ikeda <ul><li>Japanese sound artist who lives and works in New York City. </li></ul><ul><li>Ikeda's music is concerned primarily with sound in a variety of "raw" states, such as sine tones and noise, often using frequencies at the edges of the range of human hearing. </li></ul><ul><li>Rhythmically, Ikeda's music is highly imaginative, exploiting beat patterns and, at times, using a variety of discrete tones and noise to create the semblance of a drum machine. </li></ul>http://www.ryojiikeda.com /

Pure Data <ul><li>a graphical programming language developed by Miller Puckette in the 1990s for the creation of interactive computer music and multimedia works. </li></ul><ul><li>Pd is an open source project and has a large developer base working on new extensions to the program </li></ul><ul><li>Pd is very similar in scope and design to Puckette's original Max program (developed while he was at IRCAM), and is to some degree interoperable with Max/MSP </li></ul><ul><li>Dataflow programming languages. In such languages, functions or "objects" are linked or "patched" together in a graphical environment which models the flow of the control and audio. </li></ul>http://puredata.info
Processing <ul><li>is "a programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) built for the electronic arts and visual design communities", which aims to teach the basics of computer programming in a visual context, and to serve as the foundation for electronic sketchbooks. </li></ul><ul><li>The language builds on the graphical capabilities of the Java programming language </li></ul>http://processing.org http://ejohn.org/blog/overview-of-processing/ http://www.vimeo.com/658158 http://andybest.net / http://vimeo.com/2712195
Arduino http://www.vimeo.com/7443677 http://www.vimeo.com/9928343 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA3AUjyZgps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2840MIlfRPc Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring ) and the Arduino deve lopmen t environment (based on Processing ). Arduino projects can be stand-a lone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP). http://www.pachube.com /
Data Visualisation <ul><li>Data visualization is the study of the visual representation of data , meaning "information which has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information" </li></ul><ul><li>Creating images that communicate clearly out of often impenetrable data </li></ul>http://www.visualcomplexity.com http://www.informationisbeautiful.net /
