Morfologias do Ar
Os humanos, como seres sociais, usam a linguagem para se comunicar. A voz humana, como um mecanismo de autenticação biométrica, é constantemente usada em aplicações da vida diária, como reconhecimento de voz, verificação de alto-falante e assim por diante. Atualmente, as comunicações baseadas em idioma se enquadram principalmente em duas categorias: voz sobre o ar e voz sobre o protocolo da Internet. Podemos adicionar uma nova dimensão para a comunicação de voz, como um material vestível? Se sim, como poderíamos moldar a matéria a fim de fisicalizar as informações vocais? Morfologias do Ar é uma instalação interativa que usa materiais suaves, como silício, tecido e ar, para realizar essas fisicalizações. A voz humana controla a atuação de uma estrutura macia vestível, mudando a aparência do corpo humano.

Tout à chaque fois
La pièce présente un commentaire continu sur l’activité de la ville dans laquelle elle se situe. La «poésie», qui est créée par un algorithme qui sélectionne et réorganise au hasard les données collectées à partir d’un certain nombre de points spécifiques au site, et est publiée sur un site Web. Les Pis tirent la poésie du site Web sur 4G, puis transmettent les adresses de lettres via Ethernet aux arduinos, puis aux moteurs en utilisant le protocole réseau I2C. L’acte de ceci déclenche alors l’algorithme pour générer un nouveau poème.

DMX Linear Actuator Slim
The motion study with the DMX Linear Actuator Slim demonstrates a synchronized kinetic sculpture with 25 components (vertical and horizontal mount) and a sphere fixture (black and white). Controlled by the DMX LA Designer software, multiple motion sequences, pattern generators and text and image contents are transferred onto the array. Furthermore, interaction with the kinetic sculpture is made possible via the Leap Motion Sensor, the Kinect Sensor and other mobile devices via the OSC protocol.

Loop 60 Hz: Transmissions from the Drone Orchestra
A flock of autonomous DJI copters are programmed as aerial dancers and are mounted with specially engineered wireless speakers to broadcast the instruments of the band. Other copters are dressed in elaborate costumes to disguise their form and reflect light across the audience below. Against a score of original compositions and selected tracks from Cale’s seminal career this collaboration with Young imagines the possibilities of the drones as emerging cultural objects. If these technologies are no longer unseen objects overhead, or propelled along classified flight paths but brought into close and intimate relations with us then how might we see them differently. When their transmission fades, when the drones lose their signal and without their protocols for terror and surveillance, do they drop from the sky, do they fall in love or do the drones drift endlessly, forever on loop.

Imagery Resonance
“This work-in-progress piece is about reverse oscilloscope synthesizer. When I used the ilda laser protocol to manipulate the laser graphic, I found it turned the vector graphic to stereo audio first , then the laser point started drawing by X and Y axis coordinates. So I reverse the system and made a live-control set to make 3d model data into sound.” Yeh Ting Hao

Ed Atkins

Safe Conduct
Take off your shoes, place your belongings in the tray and empty your pockets. What happens when we unquestioningly subject to airport security regulations – or other, less overt protocols in society? This is one of the questions addressed by artist Ed Atkins in a new work produced especially for the x-rummet venue at the SMK. The video work Safe Conduct by British artist Ed Atkins is a burlesque of airport security instruction videos. Atkins mixes appropriated and CGI footage of the artist’s own devising, set to Ravel’s ‘Bolero’. A carousel of protocol, rendered bodies – both literally and metaphorically – abattoirs and metal detectors.

Présage
Nurtured by a dual artistic and scientific background, Hicham Berrada’s work combines intuition and knowledge, science and poetry. In his works, he explores scientific protocols that mimic different natural processes and/or climatic conditions as closely as possible. “I try to control the phenomena I mobilize as a painter controls his pigments and brushes. My brushes and pigments would be temperature, magnetism, light.”

Humans, as social beings, use language to communicate. The human voice, as a biometric authentication mechanism, is constantly used throughout daily life applications, such as speech recognition, speaker verification, and so on. Currently, language-based communications mainly fall into two categories: voice over air, and voice over internet protocol. Can we add a new dimension for voice communication such as a wearable material? If so, how could we shape matter in order to physicalize vocal information?

airMorphologiesis an interactive installation that uses soft materials, such as silicon, fabric, and air, to realize these physicalizations. The human voice controls the actuation of a soft wearable structure, changing the appearance of the human body.

EVERY THING EVERY TIME
The piece presents a running commentary on the activity of the city in which it’s located. The ‘poetry,’ which is created by an algorithm which randomly selects and rearranges the data collected from a number of site-specific points, and is posted on a website. The Pis pull the poetry from the website over 4G and then transmits the letter addresses via ethernet to the arduinos and then to the motors using I2C network protocol. The act of this then triggers the algorithm to generate a new poem.

REMAINS

gloWArp
Tecnologie oggi offrono infinite possibilità di azione in ambito museale e spesso queste sono volte solamente alla spettacolarizzazione. Per questo motivo lo Studio Glowarp ha sviluppato un proprio protocollo di attuazione di una metodologia in ambito museale chiamato A.R.I.M. (Augmented Reality In the Museum) e si avvale della collaborazione di storici, archoelogi ed esperti di comunicazione per la creazione di narrazioni e storytelling digitali che puntino al senso dell’intervento lasciando alla spettacolarizzazione un ruolo importante ma non centrale nella progettazione multimediale.

Latent Figure Protocol

Latent Figure Protocol takes the form of a media installation that uses DNA samples to create emergent representational images. The installation includes a live science experiment, the result of which is videotaped and repeated for the duration of the gallery exhibit. Employing a reactive gel and electrical current, Latent Figure Protocol produces images that relate directly to the DNA samples used. The above images were re-produced live. Each performance lasts approximately one hour, during which time audience members see the image slowly emerge. In the first experiment, a copyright symbol is derived from the DNA of an industrially-produced organism (a plasmid called “pET-11a”), illuminating ethical questions around the changing status of organic life and the ownership of living organisms. Future instances of the LFP will use the DNA of other subjects and create other images.

Powered by humor and computer vision, his work wryly critiques the uneasy relationship between technology and the body while playfully engaging the protocols of digital media.

POTLATCH

Gretchen at the Potlatch Feast

“Potlatch is a festive event within a regional exchange system among tribes of the North pacific Coast of North America, including the Salish and Kwakiutl of Washington and British Columbia.”
The potlatch takes the form of governance, economy, social status and continuing spiritual practices. A potlatch, usually involving ceremony, includes celebration of births, rites of passages, weddings, funerals, puberty,and honoring of the deceased. Through political, economic and social exchange, it is a vital part of these Indigenous people’s culture. Although protocol differs among the Indigenous nations, the potlatch could involve a feast, with music, dance, theatricality and spiritual ceremonies. The most sacred ceremonies are usually observed in the winter.
Within it, hierarchical relations within and between clans, villages, and nations, are observed and reinforced through the distribution of wealth, dance performances, and other ceremonies. Status of families are raised by those who do not have the most resources, but distribute the resources. The host demonstrates their wealth and prominence through giving away the resources gathered for the event, which in turn prominent participants reciprocate when they hold their own potlatches.
Before the arrival of the Europeans, gifts included storable food (oolichan [candle fish] oil or dried food), canoes, and slaves among the very wealthy, but otherwise not income-generating assets such as resource rights. The influx of manufactured trade goods such as blankets and sheet copper into the Pacific Northwest caused inflation in the potlatch in the late eighteenth and earlier nineteenth centuries. Some groups, such as the Kwakwaka’wakw, used the potlatch as an arena in which highly competitive contests of status took place. In rare cases, goods were actually destroyed after being received. The catastrophic mortalities due to introduced diseases laid many inherited ranks vacant or open to remote or dubious claim—providing they could be validated—with a suitable potlatch.
Sponsors of a potlatch give away many useful items such as food, blankets, worked ornamental mediums of exchange called “coppers”, and many other various items. In return, they earned prestige. To give a potlatch enhanced one’s reputation and validated social rank, the rank and requisite potlatch being proportional, both for the host and for the recipients by the gifts exchanged. Prestige increased with the lavishness of the potlatch, the value of the goods given away in it.
