Canopy

Inspired by the experience of walking through the dappled light of a forest, Canopy is a 90-metre long light sculpture spanning the front facade of the building, using mass production and precise fabrication to evoke and reflect nature.

bourbakisme: Organized Sound.

bourbakisme: Organized Sound. | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

The future of music: credo

I BELIEVE THAT THE USE OF NOISE

Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we find it fascinating. The sound of a truck at fifty miles per hour. Static between the stations. Rain. We want to capture and control these sounds, to use them not as sound effects but as musical instruments. Every film studio has a library of "sound effects" recorded on film. With a film phonograph it is now possible to control the amplitude and frequency of any one of these sounds and to give to it rhythms within or beyond the reach of the imagination. Given four film phonographs, we can compose and perform a quartet for explosive motor, wind, heartbeat, and landslide.

laboflight: the BuildingWhichNeverDies | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

A nocturnal observatory pivoting on itself, this research laboratory is intended to analyze human beings’ physiological and ocular adaptation to the dark, in order to be able to reduce urban light pollution. This lab is aimed at the moon when it’s above the horizon, to take advantage of the one-lux minimum moonlight and even amplify it. At night this lab restores the light intensity of daytime by discharging UV sensor units located on all the exterior surfaces. Their phosphorescent components (uranium oxide pigment) thus report on solar activity and its degree of dangerousness, and variations of intensity according to the areas affected by direct sunlight.

Networked Music Review — Turbulence Commission: “PuréeData” by Ted Hayes

Networked Music Review — Turbulence Commission: “PuréeData” by Ted Hayes | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

PuréeData is a web-browser interface for a single shared sound environment that allows live, collaborative patching for anyone, anywhere. Visitors interact with a shared PureData audio synthesis patch and listen to the results as an MP3 stream, with no software to install or set up. The project is open-source, and all are encouraged to modify, improve and set up their own PuréeData servers.

Space and Politics: Occupy Wall Street and the State of Exception

Space and Politics: Occupy Wall Street and the State of Exception | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

On Friday, September 30, 2011 the United States announced it had legally murdered two US citizens without due legal process in Yemen. The following day, the police kettled and arrested 700 anti-corporate protesters who were marching peacefully on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. Seemingly unrelated and spatially distant from each other, these events nonetheless reveal that the US citizens taking to the streets to challenge the capitalist looting of the commons are also confronting a state that has just declared that it can assassinate, without recourse to courts, citizens deemed hostile to the state.

Kerf-Based Complex Wood Systems

Kerf-Based Complex Wood Systems | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it
This research projected investigated complex wood systems constructed from steamed, free formed wooded slats and formed through strategic accumulative local weakening and disruption of fiber continuity by kerfing. Thus the project aimed to develop an integrated computational design tool and robotic manufacturing process that allows programming the bending and twisting behavior of tensioned wood elements through specific kerf patterns.

BLDGBLOG: Foamed Infrastructure

BLDGBLOG: Foamed Infrastructure | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it
On the way over to the west coast last week, I read Universal Foam: Exploring the Science of Nature's Most Mysterious Substance by Sidney Perkowitz. Amongst references to "applied foam science," "computational foam" studies, and even a "power-producing sonoluminescent foam" that might someday be used to generate electricity for the national grid, there were two ideas for future infrastructure that seem worth repeating here.

Complexité, Simplexité, Minimalisme : une recherche méthodologique :: complexitys | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

Une des raisons principales pour lesquelles ce blog s’appelle complexitys est que nous croyons dans la complexité comme une valeur ajoutée qui caractérise l’epoque contemporaine. L’experience développée dans notre profession de designers nous fait voir dans la complexité une voie possible pour la solution des problèmes liés à l’architecture et, plus en generale, à tout ce qui est relatif au dessin de nos espaces de vie et des objets qui nous entourent.

This morphogentic design experiment aims to evolve a differentiated surface structure consisting of a dense network of interlocking members from a basic array of simple, straight elements. To achieve complexity in the resultant material system the exploration focuses on advanced digital generation techniques in concert with relatively common computer numerically controlled production processes.

./mediateletipos))) / SXP2011: Vibración en ILIOS y Mark Bain | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it
Pensar el sonido como vibración es relativamente sencillo. Pensar la realidad como un flujo vibratorio en el que existimos es algo más complejo y requiere cierta perspicacia holística, pero también es asequible. Experimentar como concepto esa vibración, eso no es tan fácil.
Esto, entre otras cosas, tiene como intención Sonic Warfare de Steve Goodman aka Kode9, codificar o conceptualizar la fuerza vibratoria, ya sea una manifestación cultural o un arma, para analizarla luego como instrumento de dominación.

Audiovisual Archive: "The State of Things": The politics of the Street and New Forms of Alliance | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

Although some have argued that the politics of the street has been replaced by new media politics, it seems that the public sphere within which politics takes place is now defined by a specific mode of bodies interacting with media. Hannah Arendt once argued that there could be no exercise of freedom without the creation of a 'space of appearance' and even 'a right to appear'. How do we understand those new forms of democratic insurgency that form alliances that are not in coalitional forms? Who is the embodied 'we' on the street transported through media, and yet in place and at risk?

Geographies of the Outlaw | Territorial Masquerades | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it
The word “outlaw”—outside of the law—implicitly articulates the intimate relationship between geography and the law. From the perspective of state-makers and capitalists, the groups of outlaws I’m collectively labeling “Motley Crews” (as a shorthand) pose a grave ideological and spatial threat to the normative relations between bourgeois philosophies of law, sovereignty, and the state
