Imagining Science - Scientific investigation and the art of imagination

Imagining Science - Scientific investigation and the art of imagination | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

A blog about science, art and sciart; everything from neuroscience to botany to surrealism, stopping at public engagement and humour along the way.

 

Imagination is the ability to synthesise a new idea, something previously intangible…
  An artwork exists only when it is imagined and translated onto a medium. An experiment doesn’t exist until you design it.  Experimental data are meaningless until analysed and placed in context.
          Science and art each hold the joy of creating ideas and finding things out. Artists engage in methodical practice. The spirit of scientific discovery is an imaginative one.

[We are share the same skills... We are are not so different at all.] The two fields are often fascinated with each other, leading some scientists to become artists and vice versa.[Science and art are holding hands, even when you aren't looking...] We imagine molecules interacting, construct mental images of how data relates to cellular behaviour; we also draw, paint, observe the aesthetic as well as the informative.  

Collaboration in science brings scientists, resources, and ideas together, expanding possibilities for research and analysis. Similarly, collaboration in art brings expanded perspectives and ideas to each concept interpreted in art. Both science and art are enriched by collaboration and material exchange.

Imagining Science started as a collaborative art exhibition but the idea grew, and appears to have its own imagination...

Announcing the 5 Internet Art Microgrants Awardees by Kimmo Modig

Announcing the 5 Internet Art Microgrants Awardees by Kimmo Modig | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Dear Rhizome,

Firstly, thank you for the ride everyone.


Then, a thought: There's something about the whole proposal/open call culture that doesn't feel right for art. When an idea gains too much coherence—and that's what a proposal scheme guides us to create—it's hard to see how it still can be exciting as an artistic gesture.

Bonus tip for future jurors: The decision process gets way more complicated if you end up spying on contestants' social media profiles.

Radio Arts - independent artists’ group who promote radio as a site for creative experimentation

Radio Arts - independent artists’ group who promote radio as a site for creative experimentation | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

The collective started in 2001 in South London by radio and sound artists Magz Hall and Jim Backhouse later joined by digital artists Tim Pickup and Nicola Schauerman (Genetic Moo). Radio Arts have held public workshops, produced sound  installations, led public interventions, commissioned, published and broadcast new sound works by international artists.

Their early activity was instrumental in helping develop London’s community arts station Resonance FM into a sustainable concern. Now located in South East Kent where they are running an ongoing series of free public radio art workshops and projects.

The group commissioned six new radio art works for broadcast on UK and International stations and as part of a dedicated Showcase installation at the Beaney House of Arts and Knowledge in Canterbury in 2014. ...

Experimental Study on Web Asynchronicity by Emmanuel Pire

Experimental Study on Web Asynchronicity by Emmanuel Pire | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Experiments using the "web time noise" as a way of composition.
The noise seen has not been coded with a random function of some sort, it is the network response time and the browser's imprecisions that create the asynchronicity.


The same image is loaded several times in each part of the 16x16 grid, so 256x the same image.


Browsers are smart enough to recognize that it is the same image and will load it only once, and display it everywhere it's needed (that's the [1/1]). In case of animated gifs, they will also keep synchronized.
If it's not recognized as the same image, the browser will then load each image separately and of course, not at the same time.
This experiment fools the browser and make it load the same image several times. Loading 2 images (that's the [2/1]) or 16 images ([16/1]) instead of 1 will take more time, depending on the network and your machine/browser speeds. Loading 256 images (that's the [256/1] will take much more time, resulting in different noises.


Also, after all images have loaded, the browser will have to deal with a lot of precision (animating lots of very fast animated gifs) and sometimes fails at it. This is another layer of "web noise".

[*2] will use a 2 frames animated gif. [*3] 3 frames, [*4] 4 frames.

Mobility - interactive installation by ART+COM - #mediaart | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Foreboded by the previous World Expositions, the visitors to the EXPO 2010 in Shanghai found themselves in the crossfire between massive LED screens and countless high definition projections surrounding them. To counteract this trend, Mobility deliberately avoided the typical media surfaces and opted instead for the poetic allure of a kinetic installation. Mobility opened the “Physical Mobility” section in a pavilion dedicated to the concerns of handicapped people. Visible from afar, Mobility provided a visually strong metaphor and put visitors in a positive mood for the subject mobility despite handicap....

The thin line between professional and amateur art on the Web. An interview with Valentina Tanni By Filppo Lorenzin #netart

The thin line between professional and amateur art on the Web. An interview with Valentina Tanni By Filppo Lorenzin #netart | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it
Eternal September. The rise of the amateur culture is an exhibition curated by Valentina Tanni and produced by Aksioma – Institute for Contemporary Art


The role of the artist within a historical context traditionally derives from cultural and social factors subject to change over time; so it is common that definitions of “work of art” and “artist” are changed in parallel with historic contexts.


It follows that the meaning of what is art isn’t universal and ahistorical. Because of the internet, in our time the works of art are facing a situation which isn’t new but certainly unprecedented in terms of size and scope: they become part of a stream of images and visual materials that doesn’t distinguish between products made by professionals and amateurs...

Artistes et hackers titillent l’innovation au premier Art #Hack Day français - Retour en images

Artistes et hackers titillent l’innovation au premier Art #Hack Day français - Retour en images | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

48 heures pour plancher sur l’innovation à travers des prototypes artistiques. C’est le défi posé à la trentaine de participants du premier Art Hack Day français, qui s'est tenu à Paris du 28 au 30 août.


C’était le premier Art Hack Day français, qui a réuni à Parsons Paris (une école de design) quelque trente artistes et hackers du 28 au 30 août derniers, en préfiguration du festival Accès(s) à Pau (du 13 au 16 novembre prochains). Les deux artistes organisateurs, Nicolas Maigret et Benjamin Gaulon, ont choisi de nommer l’événement Disnovate, non pas pour lutter contre l’innovation, mais plutôt pour s’interroger sur la place de celle-ci dans notre société. « La courbe qu’on a affiché sur la vitrine de la galerie représente, vue de l’extérieur, le nombre d’occurrences du mot innovation depuis les années 1950 dans les livres référencés par Google....

The Story of an Artist and a Thinking Machine, by Michael Baylor

When was the last time you walked into a data center and were stopped dead in your tracks by the beauty of a computer?  Right, probably never. That is why you will most likely never see a computer in any art history books…but there is one that may well change that.

Even though there is amazing beauty in the intricate mesh of microelectronic circuits inside, most people never really get to see that. Instead, we have come to view a computer as nothing more than a box that we plug things into. That is most likely because there is more thought given to the exterior design of a toaster than most computers.

Avec la crise financière et le mouvement Occupy, les mécanismes des centres offshore ont commencé à émerger, et l’on a vu combien l’activité offshore s’était banalisée pour les multinationales comme pour les banques.

PROJECTORS : AV live performance by Martin Messier

Martin Messier's Projectors is a surgical work of art in which he orchestrates the engineering, manipulation and distortion of 8mm projectors under the lights of a digital projector. Through a tight stage lighting and the resynthesis of the 8mm projectors’ quasi-mythical roar, the machines come alive outside of the projection room and turn into bizarre and explosive noise mechanisms. All at once offbeat, unfamiliar and marvelously incongruous, this performance leads the public to a timeless universe, somewhere between dialogue, confrontation and technological contrast. Here, the projectors do not project: Everything but discrete, they take action and become the performance itself – loud and luminous.

VESA is announcing DisplayPort 1.3 today with support for up to 8K monitors in the future and dual 4K displays right now.


4K monitors are only barely beginning to see adoption but VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) is forging ahead with DisplayPort version 1.3, which will offer up to 32.4Gbps of single-link bandwidth. Even after allowing for bandwidth overhead, the new standard will deliver about 25.92Gbps, or nearly double HDMI 2.0′s best available bandwidth. This will be more than enough for 4K @ 60 fps, and it will also support 5K displays as well. ...

Emerging Colorspace is a robotic drawing installation. A machine with the ability to move on vertical surfaces autonomously applies paint to the wall using a marker. Thousands of lines painted with different colors form an increasingly dense colorspace that emerges during the more than 200 exhibiton hours.


The wandering behaviour of the machine follows simple algorithmic rules with random elements.


Emerging Colorspace is constantly changing and will never look the same on two different days.

The Science Of Sound Gets Visualized In This A/V Experiment | Nicolas Bernier interview

The Science Of Sound Gets Visualized In This A/V Experiment | Nicolas Bernier interview | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Yesterday, Montreal-based sound artist, performer and composer Nicolas Bernier presented the third and last of frequencies, a series of artistic experimentations that focus on groundbreaking acoustic research at the crossroads between science, light, and sound-generating processes. Entitled frequencies (light quanta), the final piece in Bernier's project is a dynamic data visualization that blurs the boundaries among infinity, photon physical laws, electromagnetic forces, and cutting-edge audio-visual creative processes. 


Consisting of a unique combination of a sonic micro-particle soundtrack playing alongside an auto-generative animation illuminated by hundreds of quantum physics-inspired visuals laser printed on acrylic panels, frequencies (light quanta) is a 3D audiovisual installation that allows viewers to explore the infinitesimal through a granular-synthesized physical space.
