HOW ICODA WORKS:
THINKING DIGITAL 2017
“We used iCoda at our wrap party for our
tenth annual conference.
We always try to make the event personal
to each attendee and thought, iCoda would
help with that by displaying photography
we had gathered throughout the 2-day event.
We received much positive feedback about
iCoda and would recommend it to other
Head of Marketing,
Thinking Digital Conference.
iCodex: a digital palimpsest
Threshold Festival Liverpool
St Michael in the City, Upper Pitt St, Liverpool L1 5BD.
Using the iCodagraph Web App to illustrate the Festival’s theme INFINITY.
iCodex a digital palimpsest: a generative layered collage built on the iCodagraph cloud platform. A set of images feed the collaging engine in real-time, triggered by ambient sounds from the exhibition. Excerpts from the Liverpool Poet Brian Patten’s work – So Many Different Lengths Of Time – is referenced in the piece. Peter has responded to this year’s Threshold theme of INFINITY by using photos of his ancestors and those from other associates. Alongside the photos are extracts from Brian Patten’s poem reflecting on human existence.
I have worked with Sunderland Museum and Derby Museum & Art Gallery using iCoda to reinterpret their collections.
With iCoda you can Visually Mix the imagery as they are activated onscreen in real-time and take Screencaptures and Save, creating brand new hybrid images.
The aim of the project was to gather visual content from young Patients in Hospital through 1:1 workshop around the wards and also a pop-up activity stall situated on a busy thoroughfare within the Hospital. This visual content can be placed into the iCodagraph application which mixes images onscreen activated by sound, whereby the viewer is viewing a real-time dynamic, layered slideshow. The unique component of the app is the Camera tool, capturing the chance juxtapositions of the imagery.
We decided to produce collage-like work, documenting the imagery on the hoof. The day was fluid and dynamic meeting all sorts of children in different stages of their stay. Most of the children didn’t have any digital devices and to our surprise took to more traditional methods of expression such as drawing and collage-making.
We had specific themes and were careful not to “vacuum” up content so we decided to make collages and then laminate them, rolling them into a tube for a lamp for the bedside table. This went down really well with staff and families as the children were creating something tangible. The digital side was also used, showing the children what iCodagraph can do with images and sound – they sang, clapped and made noises activating the imagery onscreen. They were also interested in a ‘final piece’ knowing their drawings and collages would be mixed and mashed into a ‘digital tumbler’ using the application.
