Hyperlocator
Interactive immersive installation using Streetview images

You control the control room. Using Google Streetview as a representation of reality and an algorithmic visual and auditive filter triggered by three-dimensional movements, the installation becomes a visualisation presented as an interactive space.

Documentation of the Hyperlocator installation at Gemak closing exhibition

The soundscape is created using sound recordings made by a group of city dwellers. A few times per day they were asked to use an app that first asked them to answer a personal question and then asked them to directly after record a sound. These sounds are also used within the scientific project Cartographies of Rest at Hubbub, an international collective of social scientists, artists, humanities researchers, scientists, broadcasters, public engagement professionals and mental health experts.

Through exploring the work the visitor is not only stimulated to use and experience their own sensory perception in a more curious and reflective way, but also asked to critically examine the reliability of both digital and physical sensory impressions and experiences.

Studio

RNDR is a design studio for interactive media that develops ‘tools’ that are only finished by how they are used.

To achieve this, we develop processes, create structures, design visualisations, code programs, and create interactions. The end result can manifest itself across different media, ranging from interactive installations, data visualisations, generative identities, prints and everything in between – often real-time. We are triggered by how information and technology transforms networks, cultures, societies, relationships, behaviours, and interactions between people.

RNDR was founded in 2017 in The Hague, (NL). Its main members have years of experience as partners, computer scientists, designers, and developers at LUST and LUSTlab.

One of our core projects, and basis for most of our projects, is OPENRNDR, an open source framework for creative coding –written in Kotlin for the JVM– with over seven years of development, that simplifies writing real-time audio-visual interactive software. OPENRNDR is fundamental for the work and software capacity of RNDR as a studio, as it allows us to realize complex interactive works.
