⌝ FutureResearch is an expressive research-driven creative practice & think tank within FutureDeluxe ⌞

With a focus on experimentation it serves as a framework to drive exploration at the edges of emergent visual and technical cultures.

We use these explorations and studies as a way explore new aesthetics, conceptual frameworks and creative technologies for commercial and artistic application ↓

Expressive Computer Vision

⌝ A series of exploratory procedural systems aimed at expressive translation ⌞

What happens to the creative dynamic when the algorithm is the Artist and we are the Curators? View study

A/V Dialogues

⌝ Generative Sound and Design Systems ⌞

A/V Dialogues is an exploration in generative sound and design systems, focused around a discourse between TouchDesigner and Eurorack Modular synths. View study

Courts

⌝ Real-Time Spaces ⌞

Sports are often best watched in real-time. Why not create sporting environments in real-time CG to see what post-physical spaces might have to offer? View study

Gestures XYZ

⌝ A expressive real-time prototype to paint in 3D space ⌞

Can we paint in 3D space, in real-time? View study

ID0LS

⌝ Digital Folklore through proceduralism & primitive machine learning. ⌞

How do symbols and stories change as they are passed on from one generation to the next and how do these retellings inform future aesthetic traditions in a digital first environment? View study

⌝ What we do here at FutureDeluxe is always in flux. The purpose of our research function is to ensure we’re always pushing forward, experimenting with fresh ways of working in unfamiliar fields and with new technologies ⌞

Hybrid

⌝ A series of aesthetic experiments in merging and cross pollinating datasets ⌞

How does the future look if we art direct a computer’s dreams? View study

Gestures

⌝ Exploration for a series of playful, gestural expressions using touch for interactive wallpapers. ⌞

How can we express touch-screen gestures in a way that promotes artistic play for Everybody, not just the artistically minded? View study

Post-Human

⌝ 2D + 3D + AI fashion research collaboration with ÃO ⌞

How can we use technology as a way to explore new aesthetic engagements with fashion? View study

‘Research’ within FutureDeluxe functions within three key overlapping playgrounds. ⌝ 01: Conceptual ⌝ 02: Aesthetic ⌝ 03: Technical. This foundation gives us a platform to venture out into undefined territories, parse complex challenges and define new creative spaces.

⌝ A Live Performance System to Cinematically Play Instruments ⌞

How can we make the individual qualities of a sound truly felt whilst cinematically visualising the instruments being played? View study

Samsung - Multi Mirror

⌝ Speculative design collaboration ⌞

How might the art within our homes exist as a playful reflection of our presence through multimodal inputs & cross screen multitasking? View study

FutureFashion

⌝ A wide ranging body of speculative fashion research ⌞
