How do you turn your audience from observers to active participants in the creative process? For many years, we’ve been looking for ways to help creators of all kinds to build truly interactive, multisensory experiences.
OSCHII believes everyone is an artist
We’re excited to introduce OSCHII, our homegrown technology that allows audiences to interact with artworks and their environments – which in turn are able to respond to the audience. OSCHII makes it possible for artists, designers, performers and games makers – pretty much anyone – to use technology to make their ideas truly interactive.
OSCHII makes the process of integrating interactive technology into artistic projects easier, faster and more affordable
Let’s be honest, not all creators are also passionate about learning to code or the intricacies of computer programming. OSCHII makes the process of integrating interactive technology into artistic projects easier, faster and more affordable. Rather than spending time and energy learning complicated systems, creators can focus on doing what they love – be it designing a soundscape in real time, telling a story that inspires and responds to a person’s movement through a space, or bringing vintage technologies back to life for new purposes.
OSCHII has a wide variety of applications including escape rooms, immersive theatre, and interactive art and museum exhibitions. With a wave of the hand, a participant might set off a sudden blaze of light, play the first few notes of a symphony, decode secret war time communications or unlock the door to another realm. OSCHII can also collect signals and data from the physical and virtual world, such as the location of an artefact; the concentration of air pollutants by a school, the most appreciated tree on a marsh, or the number of times a hashtag has been used.
OSCHII believes that technology should help rather than hinder creativity
OSCHII is designed to make device to device and person to person communication easier. It helps simplify connectivity by eliminating the steep learning curves associated with other processors like Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Instead, it allows users to learn the basics, and then use graphics-driven computer programs to manipulate the data they are collecting or sharing. The hardware itself provides the building blocks that can be expanded on as your project evolves.
So, what is OSCHII? OSCHII believes that technology should help rather than hinder creativity. It allows a wide range of creators to make works that respond to participants in real time and helps artists and audiences to connect and create. At its core OSCHII believes everyone is an artist.
