ARTR for Salford Uni at MediaCityUK

At LOVE I spent the last few weeks developing an art installation for Salford University at MediaCityUK, where people can add their brush strokes to a huge digital canvas using their smartphone and tablet. This involved three massive screens, three rack-mounted Mac’s, a laptop, Socket.IO, node.js, a mobile web app and four AIR apps (using Stage3D & the Starling Framework).

The big screens were all running on separate machines, so I was tossing shapes about over the network which made it even more exciting to build. I used Stage3D and the Starling Framework to leverage GPU accelerated graphics, giving me a clean 60fps on a 1920×1080 viewport.
