The NCSU Libraries is pleased to announce the finalist teams for its inaugural Code+Art Student Visualization Contest, sponsored by Christie® Digital Systems. Through a competitive proposal process, students are creating large-scale, data-driven “generative art” for the twenty-foot wide Art Wall and iPearl Immersion Theater at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library. The selected finalists are Anthony Smith and a team from WKNC 88.1 FM, who are working closely with Libraries staff to realize their project visions. The finalists are competing for the grand prize of $600 which will be awarded at the Code+Art reception at the Hunt Library on April 15, 2015.
Anthony Smith, a Senior in Computer Science with a concentration in Game Development, is creating Fractal Forest, a fully interactive planet that grows different plant types as guests enter the Hunt Library. The visualization will also include a sun and moon, and will depict elements including the current time and weather. As people view and participate in the work, the visualization will develop and change.
The team from WKNC 88.1 FM, NC State’s student run radio station, is creating a music visualizer of their Internet radio stream. This visualization will have an outline of the Raleigh and NC State skyline along the bottom, and various objects flying through the sky above. Each flying object will represent a current online listener. This team consists of Cameren Dolecheck, Harrison Wideman, Neal Grantham, Dylan Stein, and Colin Keesee.
This contest marks the first open call for students to create and showcase data-driven art for the video walls at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library. Mike Nutt, digital media librarian and creator of the Code+Art program says, “The video walls were installed to create a dialog with library patrons about the world around them. Code+Art re-envisions the role that data plays in a university setting, turning data into part of our library’s aesthetic fabric.”
