Item description for Digital Interactive Installations: Programming interactive installations using the software package Max/MSP/Jitter by Frank Blum...

The present book is based on the author's diploma thesis written at the Institute of Media and Phototechnology University of Applied Sciences Cologne and describes the recent development of digital interactive art and the usage of the graphical programming environment Max/MSP/Jitter. In the beginning, a brief overview of the present scientific discourse on the key issues interactivity and interface design are given. Furthermore, it portrays exceptional examples of digital art within the past five years, focusing on the main themes of digital installations and software art. This is followed by a description of Max's main features and programming methods, its extensibility with control devices and micro controllers, as well as differences to important alternative graphical programming environments such as Pure data and vvvv. The second part documents the whole process of creating an interactive installation using Max/MSP and its graphics extension Jitter. This includes a description of the creative concept, the different parts of the soft- and hardware as well as some of their important key techniques. Finally, a summary of user feedback and a personal reflection on the project is given. The book is dedicated to both technicians and artists seeking an introduction to the present digital interactive art and practical information about the new emerging graphical programming techniques like Max or Pure Data for creating meaningful interactive systems.

Reviews - What do customers think about Digital Interactive Installations: Programming interactive installations using the software package Max/MSP/Jitter?

very actuallyan recommandable for eberybody  Mar 12, 2008
an the topic of tthis book is absolute up-to-date.That's why it's very interesting for everybody; not only technicans, because it's dedictated to both: technicans and artists. It gives a good basis of knowledge of the programming techniques. That's one reason, why it's interesting and recommandable for everybody!
Buyer Beware  Feb 1, 2008
This is a students thesis where all of the content can be found on the internet. The 'book' is just over fifty pages long and is actually of little use to anybody when 'programming interactive installations using the software package Max/MSP Jitter'.
On pg 26 the author states 'this thesis is not the place where we want to gain in depth knowledge of the max packages programming techniques, however the tutorials on the developers(Max's) site are an excellent starting point to realize ones ideas'
The $52 cover price is not appropriate for this type of pamphlet. Furthermore the actual reproduced screen shots in the 'book' require a magnifying glass to read them.
