Schwanensee explores human dance-movements and digitally captured expressions as the primary force to create and propel dynamic and interactive identity-systems. It distills the very essence of its subject to create individual and unique branded design-variations for the famous ballet as an exemplary case.
Schwanensee is a comment on and exploration of how modern design-systems can express their subjects in a way that detaches the designer from the actual process by using generative design-approaches, allowing for unforeseen and autonomous design-decisions.
The Prelude No.1 in C Major is arguably the most famous of Johann Sebastian Bach’s movements for the Well-Tempered Clavier. Its harmonic, monophonic progression is almost mathematical in construction and of a timelessness only few composers have achieved.
This ongoing visual exploration uses the „data-set“ that is the Prelude No.1 in C Major -a sequence of 545 consecutive notes to be exact- as the basis to illuminate its content, patterns, form and inherent beauty using generative design systems and algorithmically driven, interactive experiences.
I develop creative algorithms. To explore and push the boundaries of art and design. I apply the creative potential of generative design-strategies to build novel forms of visual communication and interaction.
Drawing from a rich background of 10+ years as a Creative Director for leading national and international brands, I constantly cross the boundaries of art and design. I devote my time to artistic and cultural projects. And I collaborate with companies to explore meaningful, fresh forms of branding and web-experiences.
Form. Space. Music. Interaction. „Piano“ invites the observer to be a playful part of the liaison of generative design, audio-reactive interaction and three-dimensional animation – exploring the unpredictable performances generated during those unique moments in the process. This interactive browser-based system by designer Patrik Hübner unites three-dimensional typography-elements with algorithmically propelled animations and the freedom to explore and influence every movement and every reaction of the system in real-time.
Piano was on exhibition for one week from August 15th through 18th 2016 as part of the Platine Festival in Cologne. A MIDI-controller was placed in front of a well frequented shopping window onto which the interactive animation was projected. Visitors and passers-by of all ages were invited to play and explore the interactive world of Piano and its myriad of possible visual states. The installation ended up being a colorful meeting ground for people starting to explore the festival and finding their way around the exhibitions.
Interactice visual experiment for the Digital Design Days, Milan 2017. Initiated by the fine folks over at Monogrid on the topic of “Pixel”, this webGL-based animation was featured and exhibited during the Digital Design Days (DDD) DevX-experiment.
