This is a description of the conversion process for importing molecular structures into [http://www.layar.com/ Layar]: converting the PDB files into the format Layar uses, importing these files into [http://www.hoppala-agency.com/ Hoppala] and placing them within a layer.
A common analysis tool for spatial data is "patch statistics". The idea behind this is to divide a map up into connected clusters of the same type - called patches - and then compute statistics for these. This is quite similar to the blob detection used in [http://www.mo-seph.com/projects/interactable vision based multitouch] projects.
As part of the work I'm doing, we wanted to look at how likely certain areas are to be developed. We wanted to separate out areas which would definitely be developed, definitely not be developed and those which were "up for grabs".
There are several different scenarios about future development, which each provide a coherent set of parameters for the model. The model is also stochastic, so there are 30 runs for each scenario to give probabilistic futures. The task is to take the results from many runs under each condition, and produce a map showing probabilities of development.
There's a video up of a performance I did with Cavan Fyans, Adam Parkinson, Shiori Usui at the Bongo Club in Edinburgh.
We had 2 days to put together an improvised, electronic performance with new people. Our practise focussed around trying to have "musical" interactions while using the laptops. So, we worked on listening exercises, and structures which helped us to keep a sense of space and identity while playing.
I've finally gotten around to uploading my [[projects/interactable|Truth Table]] video to [http://vimeo.com/8004462 Vimeo]:
