INTERP is a series of digital sculptures generated by blending 100 unrelated photographs, placing them into simulated three-dimensional space, and importing them into photogrammetry software, tricking it into thinking the photographs are of a single object.
Every photograph in my library (approximately 12,000 images when the project began in 2012) were used as the input data set. In much of my work, I am interested in "useless" and culturally-derived data sets, so rather than use an arbitrary archive of photographs (a Google image search for a particular term, for example), it seemed more natural to use a finite set that I had generated.
This repository includes a lot of process files and misc scripts.
- Documentation And Screenshots
Various images of the project along the way (including some interesting glitches)
- Early Versions
An early beta version of the site, kept mostly for my archival purposes
- Full Res Renders - Uncropped
High-resolution renders of each model from Blender (not cropped)
- Interp Website
The main repo with the production version of the site
- Notes And Ideas
An ongoing file with process, notes, and to do lists
- Process Files
Lots of random scripts and related files for file processing, cleanup, etc
The full-res model files are not included in this repo because they total about 7GB. If you're interested in getting some of these files, please let me know.
INTERP is a 2013 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc for its Turbulence.org website, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. This project would not have been possible without their generous support.
