Dune: The Alternative Edition Redux (Alternate Ending)
En l’année 10191, l’empereur qui règne sur l’univers, connu sous le nom de Shaddam IV, établit une alliance avec les Harkonnen de la planète Geidi Prime pour éliminer de la galaxie la dynastie des Atréides, et plus particulièrement leur chef, le duc Leto, de la planète Caladan. Pour réussir ce projet funeste, l’empereur envoie les Atréides sur la planète Arrakis, appelée également “Dune”, où ils sont attendus par les terribles Harkonnens. Deux survivants échapperont au massacre : Paul Muad’Dib, l’héritier du trône Atréides et sa mère Lady Jessica. Après avoir été attaqués par les vers géants et sauvés des griffes du baron volant Vladimir, ils sont secourus par les mystérieux Fremen. Ces habitants de Dune consomment l’Epice qui assure pouvoir et longévité. Ils vivent dans l’attente de la venue du messie qui doit leur rendre leur liberté, et ils voient en Paul l’homme attendu de la prophétie…

Wearable Structures for Interplanetary Voyages
Muchos del proyectos de Oxman usan impresión 3D y técnicas de fabricación. Incluyen el Silk Pavilion, hilado por gusanos de seda en un marco de nylon,3​ Ocean Pavilion, una plataforma de fabricación a base de agua que construyó estructuras de quitosano,4​ G3DP, la primera impresora 3D para vidrio ópticamente transparente y un conjunto de vidrio producido por ella,5​ y colecciones de ropa impresa en 3D y utilizables en espectáculos de alta costura.
Viajar a destinos más allá del planeta Tierra implica viajes a paisajes hostiles y entornos mortales. La gravedad aplastante, el aire amonioso, la oscuridad prolongada y las temperaturas que hervirían el vidrio o congelarían el dióxido de carbono, casi eliminan la probabilidad de visitas humanas.

Erratic Weather
Despite some world leaders skepticism, climate change is a reality and the world isn’t just warming, in some parts of the planet the weather is becoming more erratic. During the last years, our generation has started to observe the effects and consequences of this shift, witnessing violent and unexpected climate phenomenons. Erratic Weather is a digital art project aiming to represent changing atmospheric conditions into an immersive multimedia experience. During the performance, the system uses various source of weather information retrieved from an online database and processed on real time to generate a visual and a surround sound composition. During 30 minutes the audience will experience the life cycle of swirling phenomenons such typhoon, hurricane and tropical cyclone , demonstrating the devastating power of the nature and the emergency to preserve it.

The Great Animal Orchestra

Bernie Krause

Bernie Krause is one of the world’s experts in natural sound, and here we listen through Krause’s ears as he collects the sounds of purring jaguars, snapping shrimp, cracking glaciers–and the roar of the wild. It is an intensely personal narrative of life as it hits the ears, and of the planet‘s deeply connected natural sounds and music.

Decimal Clock
dans Decimal Clock (White and Pink), les instincts rationalistes de Höller se tournent vers la division du temps. L’horloge fonctionnelle, qui représente 10 heures, 100 minutes et 100 secondes, nous rappelle que l’homogénéisation globale du temps n’a eu lieu que récemment en réponse au degré sans précédent d’interconnexion planétaire. Decimal Clock (White and Pink) fait signe aux expériences avec le temps décimal pendant la Révolution française et rend hommage aux efforts visant à la comparabilité et à la régularité temporelles. Pourtant, il reconnaît également diverses manières non occidentales de mesurer le temps et, plutôt que de les voir comme une menace pour l’empire de la raison, les célèbre comme une expression enrichissante de la diversité de notre existence dans le temps.

SONNTAG aus LICHT

Sonntag aus Licht takes as its subject our solar system and the relationships of all the planets that orbit the sun. In this opera, the earth and life on it is represented as the result of the union of light and water. These two elements are presented in the first scene, and the rest of the opera celebrates the evolution of life, of plants, animals, humans, and above all this the planets, moons, and heavenly constellations. The opera has a pronounced ritualistic and meditative character, with very little that can be described as dramatic action.

Everything
FILE GAMES 2017
Everything is an interactive experience where everything you see is a thing you can be, from animals to planets to galaxies and beyond. Travel between outer and inner space, and explore a vast, interconnected universe of things without enforced goals, scores, or tasks to complete. Everything is a procedural, AI-driven simulation of the systems of nature, seen from the points of view of everything in the Universe.

CHIU CHIH

Voyage on the Planet
Designer Chiu Chih imagines a possible future where our cities have fallen into disrepair and the air is poisoned. In this wasteland, a woman wanders through the rubble, breathing with the help of a companion plant. The project, titled “Voyage on the planet,” consists of a clear box worn like a backpack. Two breathing tubes connect a face mask to the box. Inside, the box holds a potted plant, acting like a portable filter.

Elements
Elements is an experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov about nature, physics, art and love. More than 2 billion elements / particles governed by tensions and forces of nature were used to tell stories and show emotions through the motion of collective behavior.
The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements / blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures. We could project this idea into emotions, behaviours, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.

Gerard O’Neill

O’Neill cylinder

O’Neill was inspired by the papers written by his students. He began to work out the details of a program to build self-supporting space habitats in free space.Among the details was how to provide the inhabitants of a space colony with an Earth-like environment. His students had designed giant pressurized structures, spun up to approximate Earth gravity by centrifugal force . With the population of the colony living on the inner surface of a sphere or cylinder, these structures resembled “inside-out planets”. He found that pairing counter-rotating cylinders would eliminate the need to spin them using rockets.This configuration has since been known as the O’Neill cylinder.

ANTIKHTHON

In 1971, Iannis Xenakis composed a work called Antikhthon. Commissioned by Balanchine for the New York City Ballet, this overwhelming composition refers to a hypothetical planet, proposed in the 5th century BC. by the Pythagorean philosopher Philolaus. “Antichthon” is the name that the Greeks gave to a hypothetical celestial object, the Counter-Earth, located between the Earth and the center of the Universe to prevent man from looking directly at Zeus, who had his throne there.
