I’m the author of this artwork, one part made with C74/Max environment
I’ve decided to rebuild the project next year (2020) since Max evolves and I can’t find appropriate ARTNET objects for this environment.
After studying what choice I have, OF seems a possible good option, however I should not go further without opinions from the OF community.
Circularium uses near than 6000 leds and 32 artnet universes. The sound is 8 audio-tracks spatialized. And it uses a hand proximity detection built over Arduino ton control the light.
My question is : it is consistent to rebuilt such an artwork in OF, keeping the idea that it would run on RPI ? I think about cpu calculation and optimization, light & sound realtime control. Sevral RPI? Other?
Also I’m not a pro computer scientist etc. but more a maker/hacker/artist using different creative coding tech such as Max, Processing, Arduino and else to achieve my projects. I already had some look at OF a few years ago and it seems approchable to me, probably with some help, of course.
2nd question : If I go in OF I’ll have to investigate in sound processing, artnet data and so on. Is it consistent or does it require years of low level coding practice?
Any advice is REALLY welcome to avoid going into a dead end.
Thanks for reading.
