Ah! Pain!
Always the fear of losing
Feel the fear of not being you
But now, I know and it hurts
And I will wander until you know too
I’ve always been a bad hero
Always being saved by you
But now that it’s gone
I know my best is gone too
Ah! Pain! Ah! Pain!
Don’t leave me, I beg you, stay
Surrounds me, comforts me, fixes me
Ah! Pain! Ah! Pain!
You were all that was left in me
It’s what makes me alive without you here
I always feel like it will be
Always time erasing you
And now it’s so late
And the longing comes, invades, burns
I always think about you
I always think to myself “What about you?”
And I don’t want to forget you
And the wound doesn’t close, doesn’t close
Ah! Pain! Ah! Pain!
Don’t leave me, I beg you, stay
Surrounds me, comforts me, fixes me
Ah! Pain! Ah! Pain!
You were all that was left in me
It’s what makes me alive without you here, here
Ah! Pain! Ah! Pain!
Ah! Pain! Ah! Pain!
Don’t leave me, I beg you, stay
Surrounds me, comforts me, fixes me
Ah! Pain! Ah! Pain!
You were all that was left in me
It’s what makes me alive without you here

STEPHANIE DINKINS

Gespräche mit Bina
Die Künstlerin Stephanie Dinkins und Bina48, einer der fortschrittlichsten sozialen Roboter der Welt, testen diese Frage anhand einer Reihe laufender Gespräche auf Video. Dieses Kunstprojekt untersucht die Möglichkeit einer langfristigen Beziehung zwischen einer Person und einem autonomen Roboter, die auf emotionaler Interaktion basiert und möglicherweise wichtige Aspekte der Mensch-Roboter-Interaktion und des menschlichen Zustands aufdeckt. Die Beziehung wird mit Bina48 (Breakthrough Intelligence via Neural Architecture, 48 Exaflops pro Sekunde) aufgebaut, einem intelligenten Computer der Terasem Movement Foundation, der zu unabhängigem Denken und Emotionen fähig sein soll.

Conversations with Bina 48
Artist Stephanie Dinkins and Bina48, one of the worlds most advanced social robots, test this question through a series of ongoing videotaped conversations. This art project explores the possibility of a longterm relationship between a person and an autonomous robot that is based on emotional interaction and potentially reveals important aspects of human-robot interaction and the human condition. The relationship is being built with Bina48 (Breakthrough Intelligence via Neural Architecture, 48 exaflops per second) an intelligent computer built by Terasem Movement Foundation that is said to be capable of independent thought and emotion.

Dinh Q. Lê

Crossing the Farther Shore
In Crossing the Farther Shore, Lê incorporates photographs taken in Vietnam during the 1940s-1980s, with the majority dating to the pre-Vietnam War era before 1975. The images are those that might fill a family’s photo album: portraits, scenic vistas, birthdays, and holidays. Lê has collected pre-1975 Vietnam photographs for years, finding them in antique stores and second-hand shops and wondering, why are there so many abandoned photographs? Lê considers them to be an important record documenting the everyday lives of Southern Vietnamese people – how they dressed, looked, and felt. Such photos are one of the few records of South Vietnam that have escaped from the Northern Vietnamese communist government’s systematic effort to erase the pre-1975 existence of the South.

Eraserhead
The Man in the Planet (Jack Fisk) pulls levers in his home in space, while the head of Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) floats in the sky. A giant spermatozoon-like creature emerges from Spencer’s mouth, floating into the void. The Man in the Planet appears to control the creature with his levers, eventually making it fall into a pool of water.

His work, humorous and surreal, helps to erase boundaries between photography, graphic design and space shaping. With many distortions (real or digital), not to mention strange and imposing installations, Heyman creates a world both unstructured and fascinating. Part of a new generation of photographers, his aim seems to give birth to a new kind of collaboration between all the arts, definitely modern and complex.

Bas Louter

Car 2

In Los Angeles he made a series of drawings based on a mix of old glamor images from the film industry and geometric, machine patterns. Los Angeles inspires Bas through the great social contrasts, the visual culture and, in particular, the dominant influence of the film industry. He experiences moving through the city as a journey through time. In this place, history seems distorted and memories erased.

The Blur Building (an architecture of atmosphere)
The Blur Building is a media pavilion for Swiss EXPO 2002 at the base of Lake Neuchatel in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland.From piles in the water, a tensegrity system of rectilinear struts and diagonal rods cantilevers out over the lake. Ramps and walkways weave through the tensegrity system, some of them providing a counterweight for the structure. The form is based on the work of Buckminster Fuller.The pavilion is made of filtered lake water shot as a fine mist through 13,000 fog nozzles creating an artificial cloud that measures 300 feet wide by 200 feet deep by 65 feet high. A built-in weather station controls fog output in response to shifting climatic conditions such as temperature, humidity, wind direction, and wind speed.The public can approach Blur via a ramped bridge. The 400 foot long ramp deposits visitors at the center of the fog mass onto a large open-air platform where movement is unregulated. Visual and acoustical references are erased along the journey toward the fog leaving only an optical “white-out” and the “white-noise” of pulsing water nozzles. Prior to entering the cloud, each visitor responds to a questionnaire/character profile and receives a “braincoat” (smart raincoat). The coat is used as protection from the wet environment and storage of the personality data for communication with the cloud’s computer network. Using tracking and location technologies, each visitor’s position can be identified and their character profiles compared to any other visitor.In the Glass Box, a space surrounded by glass on six sides, visitors experience a “sense of physical suspension only heightened by an occasional opening in the fog.” As visitors pass one another, their coats compare profiles and change color indicating the degree of attraction or repulsion, much like an involuntary blush – red for affinity, green for antipathy. The system allows interaction among 400 visitors at any time.Visitors can climb another level to the Angel Bar at the summit. The final ascent resembles the sensation of flight as one pierces through the cloud layer to the open sky. Here, visitors relax, take in the view, and choose from a large selection of commercial waters, municipal waters from world capitals, and glacial waters. At night, the fog will function as a dynamic and thick video screen.

Your Rainbow Panorama

Olafur Eliasson’s dazzling “Your Rainbow Panorama” is a permanent installation on the rooftop of the ARoS Museum in Aarhus, Denmark. The spectacular work of art has a diameter of 52 metres and is mounted on slender columns 3.5 metres above the roof of the museum. Visitors can literally walk through the entire color spectrum viewing the world for the first time in all pink, green, blue and yellow tones.
“Your rainbow panorama enters into a dialogue with the existing architecture and reinforces what is assured beforehand, that is to say the view of the city. I have created a space which virtually erases the boundaries between inside and outside – where people become a little uncertain as to whether they have stepped into a work or into part of the museum. This uncertainty is important to me, as it encourages people to think and sense beyond the limits within which they are accustomed to moving”. -Olafur Eliasson

MIHAI GRECU

CENTIPEDE SUN

Symbol of isolation, doubled by the sublime landscape and the complex spiritual background, the Altiplano region in Chile is the main character in the film. It represents a self-sufficient being, and the film is this being’s portrait. The illustrious landscape keeps traces of a dark past – hidden dangers and gloomy places add a layer of anxiety: the environment is injured. The human element appears briefly in the video: we see traces of human presence being erased by a devouring nature. By means of creating mental landscapes halfway between photographic research and experimental animation, this work depicts a dreamlike world, a vision hidden in a secret dimension of our reality.
