My name is Stephen Schieberl. I am a Creative Technology Lead at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, Oregon. I build everything from large format installations to experimental interactive art to database-driven web sites and more.
Pictured: Perlin ribbons I've been working on a "thought visualizer" for the Emotiv EPOC using my ciEmotiv block. While the visualizer is going to give you an object on which to focus, there is going to be some background eye candy. As an exercise in both creating this noise and in doing some screen-to-world conversions, I came up with a little side project. I've put together a 3D brush to both control the camera and draw 3D ribbons which follow a path dictated by the user's input velocity and Perlin noise . Videos below. Made in Cinder. Inspired by Robert Hodgin's "Particles Redux" application. Music by East of Oceans (out soon on Slant Records). First experiment in drawing 3D ribbons with Perlin force Added color and camera movement Early experiment using the Emotiv Epoc to move a ribbon-emitting sphere -- the video is choppy because it was captured in less than real time
