April 2023: Skull mesh reconstruction (medical field)
Undisclosed client
Consultant / Software Engineer

This project focused on developing a specialized software solution for reconstructing skull meshes in the medical field. Besides the physical limitations of the scanner (only a limited area of the skull can be captured in each scan), the software aligned and merged the multiple partial scans. This proved challenging at times, particularly because of the patient's head movements during the scans.

'Path of Noise (r, theta, phi)' received the Festival Platform Award Geo-Cosmos category at the Japan Media Arts Festival.
In this artwork, particles are moving along the surface of a sphere and are tracing curves along their passage. The movement of the particles is a symbolization of the randomness of one's life and its chaotic path.
The content is generative, in other words, different patterns and colors appear for each iteration.

A quite challenging aspect of this project was using a sphere-shaped screen (6-meter-diameter). Because there is no border, there is neither a beginning nor an end. The particles can move in all directions and loop around the sphere.

Although it is generative content, I also wanted to tell a story. The artwork is composed of several parts in which I tried to put different moods. Recent years have been difficult for many people around the world. I wanted to express some hope and bring some comfort into the heart of the viewers. That's the reason for using cherry blossoms.
March 2021: Installation of a 22 multi-screen solution at 19M Chanel in Paris
Dalbin Studio / Parallel Architecture

Though the system was initially conceived in order to play multiple video contents synchronized over multiple computers, a very special requirement for this installation was on the contrary the videos to be played randomly and avoid any impression of looping.

September 2020: Multiple camera stitching in real-time
Undisclosed client
System developper/Calibrated system expert

Development of an application capable of synthesizing a 12K wide camera equivalent by combining three 4K cameras. A precision-focused calibration system, tailored for sports scenarios, ensures impeccable visual outcomes as it deftly stitches images side-by-side, presenting a seamless and visually correct result. The system operates at a swift 60 frames per second, delivering high-resolution panoramic views perfectly suited for competitive sports coverage and other live events.

Expanding its horizons beyond sports, this technology finds adaptable utility in the realms of live stage performances and outdoor landscapes, where it confers remarkable visual clarity and detail.
October 2020: Generative art - Vector field virtual sculpture

At the occasion of the moving of their headquarters to Toyosu, the company NGC commissioned me for a variation of one of my content.

Displayed on 4 curved screens, the content evolves and changes perpetually. Colors and shapes, as well as camera work are generated randomly in real-time.
