Practice Makes Perfect, So What Are You Practicing? FITC Toronto 2011

Can’t get enough FITC? We can’t either! That’s why we sponsored this series of FITC Toronto videos from the 2011 show—so we can share these juicy bits of knowledge for you to enjoy all year long.

In the latest installment of the video series, we follow Robert Hodgin, co-founder of The Barbarian Group, creative director of Bloom Studio, and creator of the Planetary iPad App.

If you’ve ever been curious about invisible forces like electrostatic fields and gravitational forces, you’ll be intrigued by Robert’s presentation. Here, he explores how to use these invisible phenomena to create audio visualizations, natural simulations, and artistic interpretations, and even demonstrates a few unexpected uses for them.

More about the presenter:
Robert Hodgin creates everything from 2D data visualizations to immersive 3D terrain simulations. His work has been shown at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Wing Luke Asian Museum, McLeod Residence Gallery, Wired NextFest, San Francisco Exploratorium, GAFFTA, and the San Francisco Independent Film Festival.

His areas of interest encompass theoretical physics, astronomy, particle engines, and audio visualizations. He works in Java, Processing, C++, Cinder, OpenGL, and GLSL, and has spoken at conferences around the world, including FlashForward, FITC, Flash on the Beach, OFFF, and FlashBelt.
