Nonlinear Fabrication

nso.jpgAnnual NSO Conference’ Nonlinear Fabrication: Strange Loops in the Product’s Lifecycle :: April 3-4, 2008 :: University of Pennsylvania. Program.

Though matter itself has always found its expressions through nonlinear organizations, architecture’s modes of intervention in the life of matter have been linear and willful. As architecture continues its age-old struggles against material realities, the future holds astonishing possibilities as we slowly discern the nuances of complex material organizations and cultivate new regimes of expression.

Yukihiko Yoshida on Gekitora Gackt

gekitora.jpgFrom Yukihiko Yoshida: Avant-garde-like “Super-flat”, Web 2.0 media dance performance tool in Archidemo by Gekitora Gackt from “inetdance Japan”. Gekitora intends “Dance-performance that can be appreciated from any angle 360 degrees”, and does various experiments in Archidemo.

Gekitora choreographs both dancers and avatars. It is fantastic experience for him to choreograph avatars, because artist can share only pure movement of motion with many users in Internet. Now, A series of four dances can be tested with the dance-pad. A free body expression act is done in the weightless space. Those expressions reminds users of the space suit of “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Continue reading

Google Maps of Sci-Fi

2368138510_7442a66806_o.jpgIt’s another installment of Entropist, a sci-fi culture column by futurist design maven Geoff Manaugh, author of BLDG BLOG. The British branch of Penguin Books recently premiered a new website called - a bit lamely - We Tell Stories. The basic idea is that six authors will tell six stories over a period of six weeks. More interesting, however, is the fact that story #1, “The 21 Steps” by Charles Cumming, was told using Google Maps. So combine this same strategy with today’s urban sci-fi, add a few more cities - and you’ve got a way to map science fiction across the planet. Could there someday be a Google Maps of Sci-Fi?

The Chronovisor

lupus.jpg This is a call to collect videos, sounds, texts and images that witness the attempt to contact the abandoned areas of the brain. The reason for this call is a series of videos found on the Internet using the keyword cronovisore.

The Chronovisor is a machine for viewing past and future events. It was invented in the ’40s by Father Pellegrino Ernetti together with a group of twelve world famous scientists. The Chronovisor was portrayed as a large cabinet with a normal cathode ray tube for viewing the received events and a series of buttons, levers, and other controls for selecting the time and the location to be viewed.
