The Morning Line [es Seville]

The Morning Line by Matthew Ritchie with Aranda\Lasch and Arup AGU :: October 3, 2008 – January 11, 2009 :: Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo at the 3rd Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Sevilla (Biacs) curated by Peter Weibel with co-curators Marie-Ange Brayer and Wonil Rhee.

The Morning Line is a groundbreaking architectural project, designated by Ritchie as a porous “anti-pavilion”, both ruin and monument, a drawing in and of space, an open cellular structure. To devise an architectural language where geometry and artistic expression are intrinsically united, the New York based architectural duo Aranda\Lasch and specialists from Arup AGU designed a construction element called “the bit” whose shape is derived from a truncated tetrahydron. The bit can be reconfigured in to multiple architectural forms, scaled up and down within fractal cycles to any imaginable size, potentially even to the size of the universe. Continue reading

Reblogged Keep in touch: a tactile-vision intimate interface

TouchKeep in Touch designed by Nima Motamedi at Simon Fraser University, Canada, is a networked fabric touchscreen designed to support and maintain intimacy for couples in long distance relationships. To achieve this she created a novel sensorial interface by combining the visual and tactile senses together. Each partner is presented with a blurred digital projection of their lover. When they touch their partner’s body, the image comes into focus revealing their features. Continue reading

Material Computing: Call for Papers

Journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing – A Special Issue on Material Computing :: CALL FOR PAPERS :: Deadline: October 1, 2008.

A fantastic class of new materials is blurring the boundaries between computation and physical form, and as a result bringing computer science into the realms of a host of other disciplines, among them architecture, biology, chemistry, fashion design, and mechanical engineering. Responsive and computationally controllable materials — shape-changing polymers, e-textiles, and nano-scale electronics, just to name a few — are positioned to provide the underpinnings of truly ubiquitous interactivity that extends invisibly across body, architectural and urban scales.

Closer: Performance, Technologies, Phenomenology

Closer: Performance, Technologies, Phenomenology by Susan Kozel — In Closer, Susan Kozel draws on live performance practice, digital technologies, and the philosophical approach of phenomenology. Trained in dance and philosophy, Kozel places the human body at the center of explorations of interactive interfaces, responsive systems, and affective computing, asking what can be discovered as we become closer to our computers–as they become extensions of our ways of thinking, moving, and touching.

Performance, Kozel argues, can act as a catalyst for understanding wider social and cultural uses of digital technology. Taking this one step further, performative acts of sharing the body through our digital devices foster a collaborative construction of new physical states, levels of conscious awareness, and even ethics.

Live Stage: Lumens [us N.Adams + Adams, MA + online]

Greylock Arts, MCLA Gallery 51, and Turbulence.org are pleased to announce Lumens, an interactive light installation by artists Ven Voisey, Sean Riley, and Matthew Belanger :: Opening July 10, 2008; 6 – 9 pm.

A project of Networked Realities: (Re)Connecting the Adamses, Lumens is an installation of lamps networked across three spaces: Greylock Arts, MCLA Gallery 51, and Turbulence.org. Scores of personal lamps that usually inhabit and illuminate the interiors of homes and shops have been borrowed from the residents of Adams and North Adams, Massachusetts, filling two gallery spaces: Greylock Arts in Adams and MCLA Gallery 51 Annex in North Adams. In addition, their images and stories are represented on turbulence.org, which also serves to connect the two locations telematically. Continue reading

Slow Furl

vivisection2.jpgINTERArChTIVE has commissioned Mette Ramsgard Thomsen (School of Architecture and Design, University of Brighton) and Karin Bech to develop the interactive installation Slow Furl for the Architecture 08 festival in June at Lighthouse in Brighton. The proposal is to make a room size textile installation that acts and reacts on its inhabitation. The installation exists as a soft and pliable skin that lines the Lighthouse space. The skin shifts. As guests enter and move within the foyer, the skin moves imperceptibly at deep timeframes, creating new cavities and spaces, revealing slits and apertures. Continue reading

The Reconfigurable House in Belgium Now

Mixed Realities: Remote

remote1.jpgRemote — by Neill Donaldson, Usman Haque, Ai Hasegawa and Georg Tremmel — connects together two spaces, one in Boston the other in Second Life, and treats them as a single contiguous environment, bound together by the internet so that things that occur in one space affect things that happen in the other and vice versa – remotely controlling each other.

From Feb 7 to April 15, 2008 you can see: The Remote chair in Boston, Huret & Spector Gallery, Emerson College :: The Remote chair in Second Life, Ars Virtua :: PDF menu of interactions between the two spaces :: Real time data from the two spaces @ turbulence.org. Continue reading
