3615 SELFIE
86689096 Year: 2014

3615 SELFIE is a Processing app to send images to a Minitel via an Arduino.
Pictures can originate from the webcam (you can also take snapshots) or from image files (file selector or drag&drop).
You can adjust brightness, zoom in/out, position the image then send it directly (manualy, or on a regular basis) to the Minitel via Arduino.
Optionally, you can export your picture as an Arduino sketch to make it work in a standalone mode (low-tech photoframe).

The Traffic Booster's purpose is to detect when the traffic lights switch to green and sound the horn like drivers in a hurry would do behind you.
Built with Arduino, a car horn and a few electronic components (LDR, switches, relay).
tag EULE SMS
69416571 Year: 2013
Interactive installation, videoprojection

Initially created for the Videoformes festival, Tag E.U.L.E. (Electronic Universal Language Expression) SMS allows the public to send text messages which are then turned into graffitis in motion, displayed on buildings via a videoprojector.
An interface allows to map the architecture (doors, windows, …) of the projection surface so the graffitis move accordingly.

Minitels, Arduino, Minitel library for Arduino

Since the end of the Minitel (French videotext terminals and services) on June 30th 2012, those devices were supposedly unusable.
Thanks to Arduino and the Minitel library for Arduino, they can now be used as low-tech digital photoframes, embedding well known home screens of Minitel adult services or more recent internet memes.
Code Poems
./projects/codepoems/codepoems.png Year: 2012
Contribution to the Code Poems book

Poetry is considered a form of literary art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities. It contains multiple interpretations and therefore resonates differently in each reader.

Code is the language used to communicate with computers. It has its own rules (syntax) and meaning (semantics). Like literature writers or poets, coders also have their own style that include - strategies for optimizing the code being read by a computer, and facilitating its understanding through visual organization and comments for other coders.

Code can speak literature, logic, maths. It contains different layers of abstraction and it links them to the physical world of processors and memory chips. All these resources can contribute in expanding the boundaries of contemporary poetry by using code as a new language. Code to speak about life or death, love or hate. Code meant to be read, not run.

The Walking DeadDrops
38786165 Year: 2012
Concept

How to survive the post Internet censorship apocalypse - (Exhumed DeadDrops travel through publics transports)

In a world where the Internet is being more and more monitored and filtered, there is a urge to find new ways to send and share data over uncensored networks.

Apart from the traditional computer networks, there are other kind of networks that could be used to transfer data from point A to point B in a Point-to-Point way without worrying too much about technical solutions to counterfeit Internet censorship and stupid copyright laws.

The public transport network is one of them and it can be used to anonymously transfer data via physical devices like USB keys or memory card at a quite reasonable speed compared to usual networks, especially when transferring large volumes of data.

The WalkingDeadDrops project proposes a solution to send data (using a USB key duct taped under a seat) to someone else in a city (video was shot in Paris).

In a way, that's the Wifi version of you carrying laptops, phones, portable hard drives, DVDs, USB keys.

Protocol definition
- Recipient asks for data
- Sender packages data in a storage device (USB key, memory card)
- Sender sends data and informs recipient
- Recipient gets the data
- If missed, data will bump from once side of the line to another

Advantages
- anonymity
- rather fast
- not monitored
- not censored
- not filtered

Warning:
- packet loss happen here too
- encrypt your data when needed
- avoid compression (= mind your steps)
- non routing protocol unless you pay homeless people to do that for you (let's do that during SXSW next year)
- some lines are forked at their extremities
- strikes happen
- shit happens here too

Also works on buses, tramways.
Works very randomly with taxis, pedestrians.

Dear art collector/investor.

I know why you feel super frustrated when browsing net artist's websites:
You cannot put those little red dots next to art pieces while saying:
"Darling, let's buy this for the Miami's house. It will fit perfectly next to the Rothko, don't you think?"

But I have a solution for you: the "Invest in Art online" bookmarklet
Drag'n'Drop Invest into your toolbar and start experiencing investing in art online when visiting websites.
See a wonderful artwork online? Click the bookmarklet and a red dot will show up next to it.
"Darling, can you come here a minute???!!!"
