“stylus” by Ann Hamilton [us St. Louis]

stylus by Ann Hamilton :: until January 22, 2011 :: The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, 3716 Washington Boulevard, St. Louis, MO.

stylus was created in response to the Pulitzer building, which was designed by architect Tadao Ando. As a visual artist whose contributions to contemporary art span three decades, Ann Hamilton’s installations are notable in part for their capacity to weave a broad palette of media into engaging sensory environments. Conceived in response to the Pulitzer’s mission to be both sanctuary and laboratory, stylus is structured around live acoustic elements. The sound design was developed in collaboration with composer and sound designer Shahrokh Yadegari. Continue reading

“Artificial Analog Neural Network” by Phillip Stearns

Artificial Analog Neural Network (AANN) — by Phillip Stearns (AKA Pixel Form) — is an interactive, handmade electronic sculpture that responds to environmental stimuli in a display of light and sound. The sculpture is a 45 neuron network whose topology was influenced by multi-layered connectionist network models used in neural network computing, and by the Fibonacci based branching of natural systems. AANN’s structure is a skeletal network of analog electronic components, drawing inspiration for its design from forms observed in early plant and marine life, and technological objects of modern telecommunications (satellites, antennas, transmitter towers, etc.). Though designed to approximate neural network behavior, AANN is not a tool for running calculations; the project is meant to give a physical and interactive form to otherwise abstract computational theories used by computer scientists in pattern recognition applications.

“Chapter 1 – The Discovery” by Félix Luque [be Brussels]

Chapter 1 – The Discovery by Félix Luque :: November 13-29, 2009 :: Opening: November 12; 6:00 pm :: iMAL, Center for Digital Cultures and Technology, 30 quai des Charbonnages, 1080 Brussels.

Chapter I – The Discovery invites us to to discover an unidentified artificial entity emitting a code of light and sound. Its shape is a pure platonic solid, a dodecahedron, a geometry often associated with philosophical theories, esoterism and sci-fi culture. After visioning a series of videos staging the discovery of this alien object in several places, we end up in an encounter with a physical interactive object which co-opts information flows, sound and light transmission.

Live Stage: DataGolem Lab [uk Portsmouth]

DataGolem Lab :: July 30, 2009; 4:00 – 7:00 pm :: Space Gallery, Eldon Building, University of Portsmouth, Winston Churchill Avenue, Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

You are invited to see the work in progress of 14 participants who are working together over 5 days to develop a piece of responsive and adaptive software for artists. The participants are: Jacqui Banks, Fab The Detonators (Tiago Gambogi), Jeannie Driver, Simone Gumtau, Alain Renaud, Olu Taiwo, Jo Tyler, Adam Vanner, Wanda Zyborska with facilitation, participation and documentation from Tessa Eliott and Jonathan Jones Morris (SurgeryDar), Helen Sloan (SCAN) and Steve Lewis (OrangeAlert).

Drawing on the metaphors of artificial life, in computer science, literature and the arts, the title DataGolem compounds Data – “the qualities, characters, or symbols on which operations are performed by computers” with Golem – “a shapeless mass, a human figure of clay supernaturally brought to life, an automaton, a robot” to suggest a radical, generative live art performance system.
