FITC Amsterdam 2012 Presentations Golan Levin: "I am interested in the medium of response, and in the conditions that enable people to experience..."
Golan Levin is a creator, performer, innovator, engineer and MIT graduate FITC.ca is giving you the opportunity to ask him anything http://www.fitc.ca/news/?p=1675&nbsp;. Golan will be answering the top ten questions submitted by January 16, 2012 via a video which will be posted on FITC’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/fitcevents).

A minimal audiovisual sculpture of sound and imagined ink exploring Supercollider generative sound algorithms. Major noise sounds were recorded in a custom made software, developed in Processing, using an EEG interface, doing brain signal analytics, projects.jmartinho.net/225970/Brain-in-digital-Art, expect the piano, witch was recorded live. The processing program was connected to Super Collider via OSC protocol.
Electric Speed (curated by Kate Armstrong and Malcolm Levy for Revised Projects and the New Forms Media Society) presents new works from a group of Canadian artists whose tactics and practices exist within and respond to the state of global media culture. Electric Speed will be exhibited at the Electric Speed Art Gallery from December 2, 2011 through March 31, 2012, before travelling to other urban screen venues internationally.
Move over Lego! Cubelets, inch-sized modular cubes that can be snap assembled into autonomous robots, are here -- and once you (or your kid) sees them in action, the hand-me-down, attic-dwelling box of Lego might never be seen again.
Now accepting submissions of A/V works under 5 mins. Deadline: April 1st 2012
VIDEODROME is Toronto's foremost event for Visual Music and A/V culture since 2004. Visual Music is video and audio composition made from video edits, simultaneously video AND music where picture matches sound, cut for cut, beat for beat, rhythmic media work where sound and image are equally dominant.
Architecture critic, Sarah Williams Goldhagen wrote a brief piece exploring the use of embodied metaphors in contemporary architecture. Looking at recent works by Junya Ishigami, Jürgen Mayer H., Zaha Hadid...
Endemic Interstices proposes a new architecture as a system with the capacity to self structure, adapt and co-evolve within the environment considering natural resources as part of a tectonic system. The development of this research evolves as a bottom up system through iterative prototypes as adaptable type of inhabitation in rich arid unbalanced territory where the shape of the landscape is a consequence of water scarcity and constant weathering.
Swarm behaviour, or swarming, is a collective behaviour exhibited by animals of similar size which aggregate together, perhaps milling about the same spot or perhaps moving en masse or migrating in some direction.
art:screen is interested in receiving new entries for art:screen fest 2012 and future curatorial projects.

Christopher Baker's eye-busting, multi-channel installation Hello World! (2008) is making waves in the pop-up space set up by collector Charles Saatchi near his gallery off London's King's Road. Surprisingly, this is Saatchi's first ever screening for film and video and what better way to make a splash than with an ocean of video diaries gathered from the internet? Baker downloaded around 30,000 videos of individuals speaking to imagined audiences from their own private spaces...
Inspired by the Bi-directional Evolutionary Structural Optimization (BESO) algorithm developed by the Innovative Structures Group at RMIT University, this project explores a novel or not-quite-right approach to optimization. A series of forces are distributed through a virtual domain and the negotiation of these forces has been relentlessly interrogated for architectural opportunity. This has resulted in a rich palette of spatial conditions, formal languages and surface articulations.
Greene Naftali is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Paul Sharits (1943-1993), the artist's second at the gallery. Widely recognized as a structural filmmaker and contributor to the invention of the "flicker" genre, this presentation situates Sharits’s experimental films within the context of his film scores and their intermediary realizations, which range from large-scale drawings to his Frozen Film Frames.
Certains musées s'emparent du numérique pour renouveler l'expérience de la médiation culturelle. La preuve en quinze exemples de dispositifs, conçus aussi bien pour de grosses structures que pour de plus modestes.
Ongoing diminution of natural resources and the urgent need to adopt more sustainabile practices are undoubtedly among the most crucial matters for the world today. As awareness increases, more and more young creators are engaging with this topic, taking a critical and active stance by building prototypes and actual alternatives. Markus Kayser is such an example; a young industrial designer from Germany who recently received the Sustain Award from the Royal College of Art.
