This is a timelapse animation of the “Generating VGA signals” workshop given by Arjan Scherpenisse on November 22nd, 2009 at the Piksel09 festival. It was created using Toonloop, the live stop motion animation software by Alexandre Quessy also presented at the festival.

Computer Vision is currently acquiring a growing relevance in the field of interactive arts. From Myron Krueger’s pioneering artwork in the 1970s to the present day, many artists have used Computer Vision techniques in their works, extending its field of traditional applications (medical, military, industrial, etc.) to interactive artistic practices. It might be visible in an interactive installation or hidden/embedded when used, for example, in gesture-driven musical instruments. (continue reading…)


GOSH! – Grounding Open Source Hardware

gosh

The Grounding Open Source Hardware (GOSH!) Workshop and Summit at The Banff Centre serves to bring together the many and disparate makers, producers, theorizers and promoters of physical objects that come to life under open and distributed models, and to facilitate the emerging dialogue on both artist-driven and socially conscious open source hardware.

The Workshop and Summit offer a unique opportunity to bring “down to earth” the normally virtual and on-line networks of open source hardware collaboration. Bringing together these cultural producers in one place for an extended period of collaboration, exchange and dialogue, GOSH! will place a critical focus on the possibilities for social transformation and the expansive cultural and artistic possibilities of open source hardware practice.

You can read more about the GOSH! events here, or else visit the Workshop and Summit schedules.

[1] SOMMERCAMPWORKSTATION 2009 – laboratory for art and media Berlin

sommercamp+workstation=2009 is meant as a practical example of the feasibility of a “laboratory for art and media in Berlin” carrying on the idea of TESLA – medialab. The starting point of the four-month project is the sommercamp from 10 to 16 August – a module to work and generate ideas, with ten open workshops and two days of final presentations on 15/16 August 2009 at the House of World Culture and a kick-off on 14 August 2009 at the radialsystem. The second part of the project is the workstation – intended as project production support – with four three-month project residencies and a curatorial grant that are produced in close collaboration with local and international partners. A discursive weekend will take place from 13 to 15 November 2009 with the invited artists/projects and experts from science and technology at Berlin based general public, in collaboration with DISK/ctm. Please have a look at our website: http://www.sommercampworkstation.de/ (continue reading…)


Breakthrough. Saturday 27th June 2009. Call for projects [Berlin]

** Description

Breakthrough proposes an experimental, interdisciplinary event constructing a new field of research and play. Breakthrough signals the skewed extension and plain rupture with a series of earlier actions [London, Bergen, Berlin] exploring the material basis of technology and expanding on the practice of life coding.

The term breakthrough describes a sudden shift in understanding or technologies, and, finally, a clearing (Lichtung), an entry into
unknown and unmapped territories. An enclosure is breached allowing access to another, totally unforeseen state or space. Communication is thus implied, a new form of exchange, perhaps between two otherwise unconnected domains, between the living and the dead, between many worlds. What does the sheer possibility of a breakthrough imply for communication between the past and the future?

Call: Hacker Space Fest 2009

=============================================
/tmp/lab announces the second Hacker Space Festival
(Paris, 26-30 June 2009)
=============================================

Hacker Space Festival 2009 | Call For Proposals | HSF2009

In 2008, we organized HSF[1] on the spot, as an ad-hoc meeting for
hackerspaces-related networks, technical and artistic research emerging
from them and social questionning arising from them. This sudden
experiment proved to be a huge success, as much as on the
self-organizing level as on the participants and meetings quality, as
well as the emotionally-charged ambient, the kind of which you make
fond memories.
