LEONARDO DA VINCI'S DREAM MACHINE...

LEONARDO DA VINCI'S DREAM MACHINE

by Nicolas Clauss and Jean-Jacques Birg

THE DREAM MACHINE is a visual, musical, interactive, dreamlike and fun work. This contemporary vision of Leonardo da Vinci's world and sensitivity offers an enchanting voyage of discovery which is like no other.

A totally innovative work by three leading contemporary artists:

Nicolas Clauss for the visual art world and Jean-Jacques Birg for the musical world as well as the participation of the cellist Vincent Segal.

The profusion of graphic/sound media and their endless combinations continually spark interest by stimulating the user's senses. Designed for the iPad2 or iPad3, the work calls on the gyroscope, multitouch technology and touch-sensitivity for an amazing hands-on yet contemplative experience.

TAKE YOUR TIME

An application published and produced by the Cit des Sciences et de lIndustrie as part of the exhibition Lonard de Vinci, projets, dessins, machines.

For 7 years and upwards.

HELP

THE DREAM MACHINE is organised around three tableaux which are discovered in succession.

First slide back the introductory covers to enter the three universes one after the other: 1) A box of secrets,2) A dream projector, and 3) The rebirth of the painter.

THE BOX OF SECRETS

Touch the scraps of paper torn out of the Codex.

Hold them down.

Tilt to make them advance into the slot,

the last one to disappear opens a new dream each time.

The burn marks indicate those already glimpsed

THE DREAM PROJECTOR

Gently stroke the screen!

Mix with a finger: the level of each instrument in the string quarter is proportional to the surface area of each of the four images displayed.

Double-tap to disrupt the dream, the atmosphere changes in terms of the image and sound.

By pressing on one of the corners which appear when an image is fully displayed, you can move onto the next stage.

THE REBIRTH OF THE PAINTER

The painter's tools are the zoom in and out, rotation, horizontal and vertical movements, the double-tap.

Moving your fingers together or apart allows you to blur (the sound, animal noises) while rotation with two fingers twists the image (music box sounds). With the horizontal pan, the image pivots on an axis, and with the vertical one, the image is curved (electronic sounds). With a double-tap inside the porthole, one of the two fixed images changes; on the outside, around the porthole, it is the video which changes (strings loops), etc.

take the chance to capture these dreams and share them.

To create a screen shot simultaneously press on the iPad's sleep/wake button (on top) and the on/off button (opposite and on the side). Select your screen shot in the Photos app then press the share button to send it by Email, Facebook, Twitter or to use it as a screensaver (for iOS 6).

You are strongly advised to disable Multitasking gestures (Settings/General/), or even disable the sleep/wake mode (Settings/Auto-lock)
