DAZZLE Animation Update

DAZZLE Programming Underway

A quick glance over the shoulder of our Dazzle programming wizard Ivan Cruz as he prepares various animations to be mapped onto the building.  Ivan has used Processing to create a complex model of the airport facade, onto which he can map video loops created in After Effects. This model produces JSON files that are sent to a Pixel Coordinator PC with remote access, which in turn sends a signal to an array of wireless transmitters that control each of the 2100 tiles. Easy, right?

As new animations are being created, Ivan stores them into an open-ended data base. The animations are categorized by visual intensity and tile switch rates to fit various moods and ambient conditions on location, like weather, traffic, and airport activity.
