Simplexity Applied: Motions Perception Interactions presents a unique collection of works produced by the vibrant Postgraduate Community at University of Wales Newport.

Simplexity implies that simple processes, through a dynamic resolution of technologies, can trigger new phenomena in the human mind. Following this agenda, these emerging works explore the aesthetic boundaries of human perception and propose new ways of engagement through artistic or ideological concepts of motions, perceptions and interactions. These cross-media works subject their participant to such an experience that stimulates novel sensory-motor experiences, self-reflection and creative pleasure.

Polestar @ Dialogue .5

Blog on November 24th, 2009 No Comments

Polestar will be performing at Dialogue .5 using a JazzMutant Lemur interface.

Check him out on Myspace


Check out the JazzMutant website for more information.

The true innovation of the Lemur lies in its unlimited touch points. Live performers are no longer limited by a single mouse click that does one task; they can now use all of their fingers for true multi-tasking. Lemur’s multi-touch technology makes it possible to use all ten fingertips to accurately control multiple user-interface objects simultaneously. The agile responsiveness and radical differentiation of the Lemur has set the standard of what a controller should be.
