use keys

Hello. I'm Sven.

This is my portfolio. I hate to scroll all these modern one page sites. So I disabled it for this one. Sorry. But instead of burning your finger on the mouse wheel you can use your key arrows
or the navigation in the corners.


The page navigation currently has some issues in SAFARI. So please use FIREFOX or CHROME instead, it should work properly there. Sorry for that, I'm trying to fix the problem as soon as possible.

Mesh Experience

Live Guitar Visualization

Mesh Experience is a live visualization for guitarists. There are 48 circles surrounding the musician, each representing one tone on the guitar. Depending on the power the according tone gets bigger and moves out of the circle. When the guitarist moves, the projection follows his steps.
We did this project as a free work in the communication design course of the 3rd semester.

The musician is wearing an infrared LED which is tracked in vvvv. When he plays a tone the corresponding circle leaves a stain on the position it moved to. Nearby tones get connected by threads, creating a mesh which represents the guitarists performance.

For the installation we used two short distance beamers in about five meters height and a standard PSeye cam for tracking.
The video was recorded in the former building of our university which gets currently restored. There was no electricity in the building so we had to rent about 120 meters of cable to get everything work.

BookBox

eBook Reader Concept

With BookBox you can organize your eBooks in a quick and intuitive way. Instead of typing in the name of a specific book you can find it by using dynamic filters with only a few clicks.
The filter lists provide various categories which make it absolutely easy and quick to find exactly the book(s) you want. We also thought about including a community for finding and sharing book buddies and book critics.

When doing our research we realized that especially young people nowadays tend to read in short sessions or to cross-read. So we rethought the page metaphor which is used in almost every actual eBook reader and replaced it by a long scrollable text in order to improve the linear reading behavior. Instead of bookmarking the whole page you can set the bookmark at a specific text line now.
Additionally the user is able to set tags while reading. On the one hand he can set his personal tags, on the other hand he can see and activate tags by his book buddies.

hello SUN

Arduino Based Sun Lamp

Hello SUN is your very personal sun. It displays the solar position during day and night, performs little sunrises and sunsets and turns blue when the sun goes down. The idea was to highlight the most basic perception of time, which is a new day beginning with the rising sun and ending with the sunset. It's probably also the most intuitive way to understand time if we wouldn't learn how to read the clock as young children.

Rice Wipe

Arduino Synthesizer

Have you ever created sounds by moving rice around? Rice Wipe is a synthesizer to do so. There's a matrix out of nine areas, each one controlling a different sound or effect. Depending on the amount of rice the sound/effect changes.

We created the Rice Wipe in a one week workshop, thats why we used a simple kappa plate for the body and didn't spend two days in the workshop for model building action. The shape of the plexiglas was created by baking it in the oven.

  • 3rd semester / seminar week

The inner life of the Rice Wipe consists of nine light sensors which are connected to an Arduino Uno. The light values are sent to Ableton Live and regulate assigned controls or instruments in the software.

Tape 63

Application Concept

Right, as interaction design students we are really into new technology. But we also love the old stuff, as for example the tape, which was the first possibility for us as children to put music into our pockets.
Tape 63 is some kind of a homage to this great medium. We wanted to combine the style and feeling of the cassette tape with the interaction possibilities of nowadays touch interfaces.

Derailed

Photographic Documentation

This little photo book gives you an insight to the life of the so called Parkschützer (park protectors) of Stuttgart 21. They demonstrated against the demolition of the park where the new Stuttgart train station is to be built. So they built up a tent village for living and pursuing their political objectives for several months in order to protect the trees from being cut.

When we created this documentation the construction of the new station was already confirmed, so we knew that the tent villages existence would be an unique event.
In February 2012 the village and its inhabitants where 'removed' by the police due to the beginning of the construction work.

PRESSURE

3D Animation

[PRESSURE] is the outcome of my first steps into Maya 2013 after about 4 weeks. It explores the ways materials and objects can behave if the environment has a specific impact on them. The short animation shows how pressure in an atmosphere can change the behavior and materiality of certain objects.

Sparks

Interactive Swarm Behavior

In 1986 Craig Reynolds published his bodies simulation where he animated computer controlled swarms. Each boid (individual) follows one principle which is based on three basic rules: cohesion, separation and alignment. We used this principle to build a table installation which enables the user to learn interactively about swarm behavior. Therefore we created a swarm out of so called Sparks which behave depending on users interactions. The installations provides three different objects which can be put on the table to manipulate the swarm.

The project was realized in a five weeks workshop at the beginning of the semester.

Separation

By rotating the object the user increases or decreases the separation of the Sparks towards one another. Low separation makes them come very close to each other while high separation makes them fevered.

Friend/Foe

The friend attracts nearby Sparks while the foe frightens them. By rotation the friend becomes the foe and vice versa. The user can fire off smaller versions of the friend/foe with a finger tip.

Color

The color object creates a color circle where the Sparks color can be picked.

Who's SVAY?

Svay is me, Sven Stumm. Actually it's a com-
bination of my first name Sven and my frisian second name Aycke. No, I don't come from Friesland but from a small village in sunny Palatinate in the south west of Germany. I think that's the reason why I use wine in almost every meal I cook.
Currently I'm studying Interaction Design at
the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd in the sixth semester. I love to create media installations, interfaces, intuitive interactions and great-looking and expedient designs.

At the moment I'm spending my exchange semester at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
So if you fancy my work please contact me.
