- Hans Breder Foundation
HANS BREDER FOUNDATION
The mission of the Hans Breder Foundation is to establish
and international center for the study and dissemination of intermedia art. The archive will be housed in the Ostwall-Museum in the Dortmund Center for Art and Creativity and sponsored by the TU Dortmund University in Germany. The core of the project is the archive of Hans Breder who created the first academic graduate program in Intermedia at the University of Iowa in 1968 and directed it until 2000. It is the intention of the Hans Breder Foundation to create both a physical and intellectual environment where students, researchers, artists, critics and the public can come together around a range of experimental perspective, practice and programming.

IDIA's Flickr Gettr connects the social image repository of Flickr to Virtual Worlds and mobile devices.
through an interactive 3D and sonic experience - immersing the viewer in a dimensional cloud of user searched imagery. Artist: John Fillwalk and Jesse Allison.
- Final Wisdom I at SIGGRAPH 2010FINAL WISDOM I
Final Wisdom I is an interactive installation engaging viewers in a sensory exploration of temporal and spatialized poetry. Participants manipulate imagery, sound and language through their gesture, touch and proximity. The work is engaged through a framework of cameras and sensors that react to heat, position, and capacitance – presenting a shifting environment of reactive media and haptics. Final Wisdom I is the work of artists Hans Breder and John Fillwalk, poetry by critic Donald Kuspit, music by composers Carlos Cuellar Brown and Jesse Allison.

TRAVERSAL FOR EINDHOVEN
during Dutch Design Week
Collaboration with IDIA Lab and MAD Emergent Art Center
IDIA Lab: John Fillwalk and Jesse Allison
MAD Emergent Art Center: Rien Daamen and Réné Paré
Physical location: Philips HighTech Campus and NatLab in Eindhoven, Nederlands
'Traversal for Eindhoven' is a live performance/hybrid reality installation that bridges the physical and virtual worlds. It connects Philips NatLab in Eindhoven to a virtual environment as part of the 2009 Dutch Design Week. Avatars will be able to perform a physical synthesizer in the Philips NatLab via an interactive online virtual instrument built by IDIA - located near a 3D model of the Eindoven High Tech Campus. The sound of the live synthesizer will be streamed back into the virtual world, so the virtual and physical participants can hear their interactions with the instrument.
- Traversal for Eindhoven Excerpt
[un]wired is an interactive media installation that visually and sonically interprets wireless network traffic, and can be shaped by any personal electronic device including wifi, bluetooth, car key fobs and cell phones. Artists: John Fillwalk, Jesse Allison and Keith Kothman.
- Displaced Resonance v2DISPLACE RESONANCE V2
Displaced Resonance v2 is an interactive installation consisting of sixteen sculpture forms that are networked in a reactive grid of light and sound. Interaction within the sculptural field is based on a participant’s presence and proximity to any of the forms. Displaced Resonance samples the sounds and video imagery of an urban environment and utilizes custom live processing software to transform these sources through the participants’ interaction – displacing the sounds and imagery from their original physical and cultural contexts within the framework of new physical and cultural resonances. Displaced Resonance v2 is a candidate in The 3rd Art and Science International Exhibition and Symposium at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Artists: Michael Pounds and John Fillwalk.
trans|form is an interactive sound sculpture consisting of five metal plates with attached mechanical transducers that vibrate the metal according to audio signals sent from the computer. Artists: Michael Pounds, John Fillwalk, and Jesse Allison.
- VBAMVIRTUAL BROAD ART MUSEUM
Virtual Broad Art Museum (VBAM) allows visitors to experience the simulation of the Museum designed by Zaha Hadid within a landscape of site-specific virtual installations. The current installations activate VBAM through these commissioned artworks that engage the viewer through several modes of interaction – from data driven processes, social media and human interaction.
