Ars investigates the nascent domain of turning source code and errors into art.

 

Glitch art resonates with the increasingly complex love-hate relationship humans have with technology. Errors, and by extension the changes, that can occur within software source code and data can provide a fertile foundation for the imagination.

 

In an attempt to explain this nascent artform, Martino Prendini wrote: “The error becomes image and movement, system errors are exploited, and it has a certain punk nature. At the same time, this kind of art exploits the glitch and uses it, so its nature is also entropic, dadaist... Glitch art is therefore the contradictory relationship between man and machine losing his functionality."

Slowscreen par Pauline Gourlet /// #mediaart #textileart - on Beautiful Seams (Louis Eveillard)

Slowscreen par Pauline Gourlet /// #mediaart #textileart - on Beautiful Seams (Louis Eveillard) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Louis Eveillard : I’ve been working with Pauline Gourlet on this project for a few months now, and it’s finally nearing the end. This post is a short account of how this idea came to be, from the first rough circuits to silkscreen-printing the fabric and finally connecting and programming with arduino. Another post, one that is focused on actually using this display and exploring it’s potential in real-world situations with users is coming later.

 

Slowscreen is a black capacitive fabric screen, reactive to the skin temperature. Embedded in the home — furnitures, walls, pillows or curtains — these sensitive areas become expression spaces between housemates. Temperature becomes a language for interaction, as a witness of each other past presence. The ephemeral imprint evokes Rorschach inkblots, open to interpretations. This calm technology aims to integrate the usual complexity of information in the texture of everyday life...

FUTUROTEXTILES #3 - untill 02 NOV 2014 @ TECNOPOLIS, Buenos Aires / Lille3000

FUTUROTEXTILES #3 - untill 02 NOV 2014 @ TECNOPOLIS, Buenos Aires / Lille3000 | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Created in 2006 by lille3000, Futurotextiles is an exhibition which mix science, technology and art to textile. Objects, applications and works of art are inspired by the wildest dreams to invent tomorrow's hopes.

 

The exhibition is a discovery journey through the world of textile: science and technology are one side of the exhibition, which is also an artistic, playful and poetic journey with pieces by some of the greatest creators of these past few years.

 

The exhibition thus conceived was a great success at Tripostal in Lille (France) in 2006, in Istanbul (Turkey) in September 2007, and Futurotextiel 08 during Autumn 2008 in Kortrijk (Belgium). A touring module was then created after the 2nd edition, and it started a world tour to show a wide selection of these concrete visions of tomorrow's textile which change the way we see the world, our surroundings and ourselves.

 

The exhibition and the touring module have been supported by Designregio Kortrijk, Lille Métropole Communauté urbaine, the Nord-Pas de Calais region, CulturesFrance, Interreg IV and CLUBTEX.

A Straightforward Method for Making Wearable Tech

A Straightforward Method for Making Wearable Tech | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Considering the pace of technological growth in recent decades, the convergence of humans and machines seems a foregone conclusion. Yet, unlike most machines, the body is far too flexible and squishy for modern advanced materials. So it falls on researchers to develop new stretchable technologies that are easily manufactured and relatively inexpensive. ...

trikoton - How does it feel when your sweater becomes a medium of your own voice

trikoton - How does it feel when your sweater becomes a medium of your own voice | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

How does it feel when your sweater becomes a medium of your own voice? Trikoton transfers voices into clothes, giving them a poetic attitude. On the trikoton.com platform, you can record a message, a song or a melody. Their loudness, frequency and modulations are converted into binary codes for knitting patterns, as unique as the human voice. Trikoton also produces limited editions, occurred from collaborations with artists, available in shops as well as on the website. Located in Berlin trikoton is working together with local manufacturers, bringing together traditional and new technologies, to ensure high quality products for concerned consumer.

 

While they were studying Design at the University of Arts in Berlin (Universität der Künste Berlin) in 2007, Magdalena Kohler and Hanna Wiesener created their first knitting collection. At that time, they were still using a punch card knitting machine, which they hacked and transformed into an interactive voice knitting machine : GELSOMINA. During the following years, joined by other knitters and interaction designer Hannes Nützmann, they found a manufacturing plant for their voice knitting collection which was reliable and open to artistic experiments : strick|chic GmbH in Apolda/Thüringen. They presented their collections in Boston, London and Berlin, as well was on the Festival Ars Electronica. Rewarded with many prizes and with the company founding sponsorship of the Ministry of Economy and Technology, their project gave birth to trikoton GmbH in 2010.

Fragmented Memory Process (Edited for Wired 2013) by Phillip Stearns

Fragmented Memory is a triptych of large woven tapestries completed in May 2013 in Tilburg, NL at the Audax Textielmuseum’s Textiellab. The project uses digital practices and processes to blur the lines between photography, data visualization, textile design, and computer science. The result are works of visual art that serve not only to render visible the invisible processes mediating everyday experience, but also to operate as distinctly tactile and lo-fi digital storage media—the process becomes a means to capture, record, and transmit data.

 

A snapshot of my computer’s physical memory was extracted in a core dump (using OSXPmem). Three selections of the binary data were converted to images using custom software written with the help of Jeroen Holthuis in Processing which grouped 6 bits into RGB pixel color values (2 bits per channel). The resulting 64 hues in the images were then mapped to a custom woven color palette created by mixing 8 colors of yarn using variations on a satin weave. The resulting patterns were then woven on a computerized industrial Jacquard loom. Because of the direct mappings from binary data, to image, and from image to woven pattern, it’s actually possible to decode the original binary data sourced from my computer’s physical memory. In fact, a key to the binding patterns is provided on the back of each piece.

Textiles have long been used as a medium for imagery but are also closely connected to the development of automation and computer technology. Fragmented Memory collapses these two histories, functioning as a visual and physical medium for the storage and transmission of digital information.

24>25.09.2016 - Electro-Textile - un workshop avec Claire Williams - artiste textile et sonore au CACLB | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Le textile et l’électronique s’associent afin d’expérimenter de manière ludique et pratique ces nouvelles technologies. L’idée est de déconstruire des systèmes électroniques pour les rendre souples. On peut par exemple tricoter son circuit, faire au crochet une résistance qui module un son ou utiliser la vannerie pour créer une enceinte ou un micro. Ces matières tex- tiles peuvent être manipulées pour déclen- cher, capter et générer des sons. L’ atelier cherche à permettre à différents publics de manière intergénérationnelle de mieux s’approprier ces technologies à travers des techniques familières. Aucun prérequis n’est nécessaire.

Glitchaus Textiles from Jeff Donaldson, by Dawn Haleta — on Artists & Algorists

Glitchaus Textiles from Jeff Donaldson, by Dawn Haleta — on Artists & Algorists | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Collaborating with Machines through Glitch Textiles.


“This natural way that someone who’s grown up with 8 bit video games sees the world. This is the grain and restoration of it”.  – James Bridle

In a 2011 closing Keynote at Web Directions South, James Bridle described the world of someone who has grown up with 8 bit video games as one that integrates the developing language of digital technology with the physically tactile materials that surround us. Bridle sites examples of the integration of pixelated prints, architecture and sculptures as collaborations between human and machine, or human and computer, and titles them the ‘New Aesthetic’. Although the term ‘New Aesthetic’ references the look and design of an image, his main focus is on the varied levels of communication we are activating between machines and technology. Jeff Donaldson is an artist who has developed a form of communication with 8 bit technology, computer glitches and code through an experimental collaboration with circuitry, technology and textile design. He executes generative processes utilizing a combination of his own constructed systems with machine glitches under the studio name Glitchaus. ...

Contours - "Breathing life into a textile skin" by Bare Conductive, Fabio Antinori and Alicja Pytlewska | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Commissioned by MAK Museum of Applied Arts and Contemporary Art in Vienna, this project is a collaboration between Bare Conductive, Fabio Antinori and Alicja Pytlewska to create an installation that combines screenprinting, capacitive sensing, interactive tapestries and generative soundscape, as a large-scale metaphor for the idea of breathing life into a textile skin.

 

The team designed ‘Contours’ as an immersive experience where a series of tapestries respond to the presence of interacting audience when they are in contact with the skin of visitors. The constantly modulated data-driven soundscape is composed in real time and serves as an acoustic feedback loop that alludes to the relationship between science and the body ...

Fragmented Memory – Extracts from computer’s physical memory to produce textiles by Phillip Stearns

Fragmented Memory – Extracts from computer’s physical memory to produce textiles by Phillip Stearns | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
The project uses digital practices and processes to blur the lines between photography, data visualization, textile design, and computer science.

 

Back in february 2012 we wrote about Phillip Stearns and his methodology of using short circuited cameras to create glitch like blanket patterns. Since then, Phillip’s work has not only been covered extensively in media but also exhibited around the world. Phillip now also runs an online store where these blankets can now be purchased.

 

One of the later pieces, titled Fragmented Memory, is a triptych of large woven tapestries completed in May 2013 in Tilburg, NL at the Audax Textielmuseum’s Textiellab. The project uses digital practices and processes to blur the lines between photography, data visualization, textile design, and computer science. The result are works that serve not only to render visible the invisible processes mediating everyday experience, but also to operate as distinctly tactile and lo-fi digital storage media—the process becomes a means to capture, record, and transmit data.

ANREALAGE 2011-12 A/W COLLECTION - 8 bit nostalgia fashion collection

Each season Anrealage can be relied upon for taking an idea to its absolute logical conclusion and through it producing art and beautiful fashion in equal measures.  This time their illegibly low-res invitation to the show (with pixelated seal) alluded to an onslaught of 8 bit nostalgia that was mixed with the usual patchwork precision and showmanship that Anrealage has built their reputation on.  This season both structure and patterns were put through a low-res digital lens that explored how digital imagery is created and found a beauty that is increasingly becoming a distant memory in this modern age.
