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.
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.
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.
Twitter is a remarkable tool to analyze information diffusion, and investigate social patterns and trends. In June 2011, Abdur Chowdhury and his team at Twitter posted a few visualization experiments covering the volume and worldwide scale of Twitter messages during the devastating earthquake in Japan on March 11.
While some artists are releasing albums on cassette tape again, you can also deconstruct your cassette player and build a beautiful sound installation from it. Like Anis Haron did with Audio Palimpsest, an interactive sound installation made with a “reconfigured cassette recorder”.
Hydrogeny...Animals and plants are formed in earth and in water because there is water in earth, and there is pneuma in water, and there is soul heat in all pneuma; so that in a way all things are full of soul. Hence plants and animals quickly form once this gets enclosed; and when this enclosing happens, when the corporeal liquids get heated, a sort of frothy bubble is formed. Now the difference between the various creatures which are produced in this way are due to the stuff which makes up the envelope around the soul-source.
Augmented Structures: Acoustic Formations” is an augmented structure, an installation created through the use of innovative parametric architecture and audiovisual techniques. The projects deals with a new mediated space: how to translate the logic of media into architecture? In this first experiment field recordings of Istiklal Street were transformed in to parametric architectural structure. The recordings were also used to create an electro-acoustical composition. The project seeks interactions between space, sound, the visual and light (with a reference to the Philips Pavilion of Le Courbusier).
Smart cities por todos lados. Ahora toca hablar de esto. Borrón y cuenta nueva. Sueños imaginarios de ciudades perfectas en un mar de ubicuidad digital donde la información fluye perfecta, la ciudadanía se conecta a los flujos de información urbana para operar en tiempo real y la web nos da otro paraíso más. La conquista por fin de las cero emisiones, los edificios eficientes y una ciudad limpia. ¿Es para tanto?
“Transformer” is a layered, light-responsive shading lattice, designed and fabricated by an interdisciplinary team of students and faculty. The system acts as an active shading device, potentially for use within a building envelope.
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.
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.
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?
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
It is sometimes said that we should never believe a scientific theory until it is verified by experiment. But a famous astronomer has also stated that we should never believe an observation until it is confirmed by a theory.
The architects specifically propose "a structure that raises the solar energy infrastructure off the ground [and] creates the opportunity to host other activities on the site, as well as to remediate the polluted ground and waterways. The concrete structure, pre-fabricated using waste rock material from the site, is assembled in a modular fashion from a kit of parts that accommodates a variety of programs."
