Moving around the stage while performing is a whole lot easier with instruments such as the Vortex or Kitara than with something like the mighty JUPITER-80. Innovations like Onyx Ashanti's Beatjazz hands or the Air Piano from Omer Yosha go even further, by making movement a vital part of the music creation process. Such is the case with the Dodecaudion from Polish art and design group panGenerator. When a performer places a hand, foot, head or other part of the body in front of any of its 12 IR-sensor-packing faces, wirelessly-linked processing hardware generates pre-programmed audio or visuals.

 

The Dodecaudion is described as a simple gestural, spatial musical interface which is suspended from the ceiling and produces sounds as a performer approaches any of the IR distance sensors pointing out from each of its 12 faces. The sensors are connected to a custom-made Arduino shield, which collects the incoming data and sends it as float variables via the unit's built-in Bluetooth modem to an external device for processing. The electronics are housed in a 3D-printed skeleton featuring laser-cut aluminum elements.

Italy: Zaha Hadid's museum in the mountain opens for business | Adam Williams | GizMag.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

Jutting out of the peak of Kronplatz mountain in Italy's South Tyrol region like a futuristic Bond baddie's lair, the Messner Mountain Museum Corones is classic Zaha Hadid with its curved concrete and striking glazing. Three sections exit the mountain at 2,275 m (7,463 ft) above sea level, but the greater part of the building is actually hidden from view. Here, embedded into the rock, an exhibition that promotes the traditions, history and discipline of mountaineering can be found.

Messner Mountain Museum Corones opened to the public this week after a three year build. It is the sixth and final of a series of museum buildings based around the mountainous South Tyrol region in an ambitious project by famous mountaineer and local, Reinhold Messner. Messner is rated as the first person to tackle all of the so-called "eight thousanders," or the 14 mountains with peaks over 8,000 m (26,000 ft) above sea level around the globe.

New Video 'Harvard' Is a Scene From the Miseducation of Gyasi Ross | Indian Country Today Media Network

New Video 'Harvard' Is a Scene From the Miseducation of Gyasi Ross | Indian Country Today Media Network | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

Attorney and ICTMN editor-at-large Gyasi Ross continues to make waves in his latest persona -- a rapper and spoken word artist. His newest video, released today, find him much more in the latter category -- "Harvard" is a strongly-worded anecdote about a young person whose dreams are bigger than those of his educational steward.


Manny, the student, wants to apply to Harvard University; the school administrator who's supposed to guide him discourages him from trying. "Are you sure you want to go through with this?" she asks him, one eye on her watch.

What the administrator fails to consider is that a rejection letter from an Ivy League school itself has value -- that even aspiring to go to Harvard is itself "a sign of progress."

One In Eight Americans Burdened By Student Loan Debt, Including 700,000 Seniors | Mary Swig, Roger Hickey & Steven Swig | AlterNet.org | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

It will not be news to 41 million Americans that this nation is in the middle of a student debt crisis. That's the number of people burdened by student loan payments. But many people, including many student debt holders, may be surprised to learn that people can be pursued for student debt even into their elder years.

In fact, the government is withholding Social Security payments for some retirees, because their student loans have not been fully repaid. This is a growing problem which Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Claire McCaskill have asked the government to study in greater depth.

Obama rolls out initiative to boost US supercomputer capability | John Ribeiro | NetworkWorld.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

US President Barack Obama has signed an executive order setting up the National Strategic Computing Initiative that will adopt a coordinated strategy involving multiple government agencies, academia and the private sector for the development of high-performance computing systems.

Adopting a “whole-of-government” approach, involving all departments and agencies with expertise and interests in HPC, one of the objectives of the NSCI will be to speed up the delivery of “a capable exascale computing system that integrates hardware and software capability to deliver approximately 100 times the performance of current 10 petaflop systems across a range of applications representing government needs.”

Textiles That Communicate: Smart Fibers, Sensors & Afrofuturism 3.0 | Nettrice Gaskins | Musings of a Renegade Futurist

Textiles That Communicate: Smart Fibers, Sensors & Afrofuturism 3.0 | Nettrice Gaskins | Musings of a Renegade Futurist | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

The essay I wrote for the upcoming book Afrofuturism 2.0 The Rise of Astro-Blackness Vol. 1 considers whether cultural symbols in augmented, techno-vernacular spaces lose their meaning, or if artists create new experiences in which the cultural, spatial and information layers are equally important. It explores the general dynamic between cultural data and creative expression and how this might function differently in today’s world.

Coded quilts are somewhere between myth and fact. The symbols are similar to what is displayed on a Global Positioning System (GPS) or on Google Earth, a virtual map and geographical information program. Imagine that, in an alternate reality, Underground Railroad passengers used mobile phones with cameras that when pointed at quilts obtained information as images layered on top of the physical environment.


Conductive thread, fabric, fiber and paint, in addition to wiring/circuitry that can be woven into fabric expand the possibilities of tangible media. “Smart” textiles are electronically programmed, constructed with internal sensors that react to colors, light, touch or movement. When integrated with GPS and mobile technologies, smart textiles can be used to monitor location. The Burton Mix Master Glove/Mitt is a wireless controller for iDevices such as iPods.

How Big Corporations Are Starving Public Schools of Billions of Dollars | Paul Bucheit | AlterNet.org | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

Corporations have reaped trillion-dollar benefits from 60 years of public education in the U.S., but they're skipping out on the taxes meant to sustain the educational system.


Children suffer from repeated school cutbacks.


And parents subsidize the deadbeat corporations through increases in property taxes and sales taxes.

Filling the Demand for Data Scientists | USTelecom.org

Computer and mathematics jobs are among the fastest-growing fields, with an 18 percent expansion expected from 2012 to 2022, according to occupational employment projections provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). (link is external) The data, derived from previous BLS surveys, also shows that positions in this field on average paid two to three times more than the median annual wage.

With such a clear economic upside and a substantial number of jobs to fill, schools offering in-demand computer science training courses are currently turning out qualified workers. In several cases, detailed in this New York Times (link is external) article, former college graduates are taking advantage of programs offered by coding schools such as Galvanize (link is external), Flatiron School (link is external) and Hack Reactor (link is external) to reinvent their careers. Those who complete these intensive computer programming classes are successfully securing promising jobs in the booming tech industry while netting six-figure salaries.

Rethinking Media Literacy | Bill Simmon | Medium.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

In the lead-up to the 2010 midterm elections, my friend Steve approached me with an idea for a get-out-the-vote (GOTV) video he had in mind. We met and discussed his idea, spent a few hours in front of some editing software, and when we finished, we had a one-minute, eleven-second piece, which we posted online about a month prior to the election.

In the 30 days leading up to Election Day, the video was viewed more than a quarter of a million times, Roger Ebert blogged about it, it was posted on The Huffington Post and Daily Kos, it made the front page of Reddit — it was a success by pretty much every metric (except, perhaps, the actual 2010 midterm election results).

But here’s the thing: My friend Steve is currently the lead blogger at The Rachel Maddow Show. He has a daily readership in the tens of thousands. He is technically a producer on that show, and yet when he wanted to make this GOTV video, he came to me because he didn’t have the first clue about how to make a video.*

It’s actually not all that weird that Steve would not know how to make a video. The fact is, few people do.

New Jamestown Discovery Reveals the Identities of Four Prominent Settlers | Marilyn Johnson | Smithsonian Magazine

New Jamestown Discovery Reveals the Identities of Four Prominent Settlers | Marilyn Johnson | Smithsonian Magazine | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

One body was just 5 feet 5 inches long, and missing its hands, most likely from four centuries of deterioration. It had been jostled during burial, so the head and shoulders were scrunched long before the wooden coffin lid and the weight of the dirt above had collapsed on it.


Flesh no longer held the jaw shut; when this skeleton was brushed free late in 2013, it looked unhinged, as if it were howling. The bones, now labeled 3046C, belonged to a man who had come to the New World on the first trio of ships from England to the spot called Fort James, James Cittie or, as we know it, Jamestown. He survived the first wave of deaths that followed the Englishmen’s arrival in May of 1607.


Over the next two years, he conspired to take down one leader and kill another. This man had a murderous streak. He died, along with hundreds of settlers—most of the colony—during the seven-month disaster known as the Starving Time.

Jamestown’s original fort is perhaps the most archaeologically fertile acre in the United States. In 1994, Bill Kelso, a former head archaeologist at Monticello, put his shovel in the clay soil here and began unearthing the first of two million artifacts from the early days of the settlement.

Watch Amiga and Warhol Invent Digital Art | Andrew Burmon | Inverse.com

Watch Amiga and Warhol Invent Digital Art | Andrew Burmon | Inverse.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

On July 23, 1985, Commodore Business Machines welcomed a shoulder-padded crowd into Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater for the unveiling of the Amiga 1000, a personal computer designed to put graphics front and center. At the time, 16 bits was a lot of bits, enough to make video games feasible and facilitate poor quality photo editing.

To drive the point home in the least subtle way possible, Commodore trotted out Andy Warhol, who used the computer and ProPaint V27 to create a portrait of a kind of bored looking Debbie Harry. Aside from being one of the more eighties events to occur in the eighties (right behind Reagan waving from that window), the event essentially created a new form of modern art.

Most powerful rocket ever edges closer to lift-off | Anthony Wood | GizMag.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) has completed its critical design review – a major stepping stone on the way to becoming certified for manned spaceflight. Once complete, the SLS will be the most powerful launch vehicle ever constructed, capable of taking humans to hitherto unreachable destinations including a manned mission Mars.

The review took 11 weeks, and saw 13 teams of NASA engineers and scientists review over 1,000 documents in order to determine whether the gargantuan rocket concept was ready to transition into full-scale production. The design review has now been submitted to a Standing Review Board composed of experts independent of the program.

The next step will be to present the results of the board to the Marshall's Center Management Council, and then the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters.

Georgia Is Moving Children With Disabilities Into Schools Used During Jim Crow | Marian Wang | Truthout.org

Georgia Is Moving Children With Disabilities Into Schools Used During Jim Crow | Marian Wang | Truthout.org | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

Georgia has been illegally and unnecessarily segregating thousands of students with behavioral issues and disabilities, isolating them in run-down facilities and providing them with subpar education, according to an investigation by the US Department of Justice.

Some of the students in the program were schooled in the same inferior buildings that served black children in the days of Jim Crow. The investigation found that many of the buildings lack gyms, cafeterias, libraries, labs, playgrounds and other amenities.

"It's a warehouse for kids the school system doesn't want or know how to deal with," a parent told the Justice Department of the program. The Justice Department detailed its findings in a letter earlier this month to Georgia's governor and attorney general.

Boy Who Couldn’t Afford Books Asks Mailman For Junk Mail To Read; Mailman Responds Spectacularly | Ryan Grenoble | HuffPost.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

Twelve-year-old Mathew Flores is a bit different from the rest of us. He loves junk mail.

Until recently, advertisements were the only reading materials available to the boy. Flores loves reading so much that he approached his mailman in a Salt Lake City suburb on Friday to ask if he could have any junk mail.

The strange question prompted the mailman, Ron Lynch, to ask why. Lynch detailed Flores' response in a heartbreaking Facebook post afterward.

"Today while delivering mail to his apartment complex, I saw him reading ads, and then he asked me if I had any extra mail he could read," Lynch wrote. "He told me his wish is to have books to read. I told him the library had many, but he said they don't have a car, and couldn't afford the bus."

Lynch then asked his Facebook friends if they could spare some books for Flores:

"Most kids his age want electronics! It's great to see his desire, and you should have seen him beam when I said I could help!"

"He's counting on me," he concluded, "so I'm counting on you!"

Lynch thought the Facebook post might bring in 50 to 60 books, he told local news outlet KSL. But his request went viral.

Report: 40 Per Cent of NYC High Schools Do Not Offer Advanced Math and Science Courses | Geoff Decker | AlterNet.org

You need chemistry to become a registered nurse or an emergency medical technician. You need physics to become an architect.

But those occupations could be closed off to students attending a large number of New York City high schools, according to a report released Wednesday by the Center for New York City Affairs at the New School. The report found that nearly four in 10 city high schools do not offer algebra II and both physics and chemistry.

The numbers paint a grim picture of the instruction many students are receiving in the so-called STEM subjects: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The numbers look especially bleak for black and Hispanic students, who are underrepresented at the schools where most advanced diplomas are earned.

Hedge funds tell Puerto Rico: lay off teachers and close schools to pay us back | Rupert Neate | The Guardian

Hedge funds tell Puerto Rico: lay off teachers and close schools to pay us back | Rupert Neate | The Guardian | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

Billionaire hedge fund managers have called on Puerto Rico to lay off teachers and close schools so that the island can pay them back the billions it owes.

The hedge funds called for Puerto Rico to avoid financial default – and repay its debts – by collecting more taxes, selling $4bn worth of public buildings and drastically cutting public spending, particularly on education.

The group of 34 hedge funds hired former International Monetary Fund (IMF) economists to come up with a solution to Puerto Rico’s debt crisis after the island’s governor declared its $72bn debt “unpayable” – paving the way for bankruptcy.

The funds are “distressed debt” specialists, also known as vulture funds, and several have also sought to make money out of crises in Greece and Argentina, the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the near collapse of Co-op Bank in the UK.

The report, entitled For Puerto Rico, There is a Better Way, said Puerto Rico could save itself from default if it improves tax collection and drastically cuts back on public spending.

It accused the island, where 56% of children live in poverty, of spending too much on education even though the government has already closed down almost 100 schools so far this year.

How the Legacy of Slavery Affects the Mental Health of Black Americans Today | Alma Carten | AlterNet.org | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

On July 22, in announcing the federal indictment of Charleston killer Dylann Roof, Attorney General Loretta Lynch commented that the expression of forgiveness offered by the victims' families is “an incredible lesson and message for us all.”

Forgiveness and grace are, indeed, hallmarks of the Black Church.

Since slavery, the church has been a formidable force for the survival of blacks in an America still grappling with the residual effects of white supremacy.

This was eloquently illustrated in the aftermath of the Charleston church massacre. Americans rightly stood in awe of the bereaved families' laudable demonstration of God’s grace in action.

But what about the psychic toll that these acts of forgiveness exact?

They want to connect with students whose stress response states are chronically activated. They want to help learners know that they are more than just their genetics or their history. They want to share with their most fragile students that the traumas of their past can strengthen rather than harden their minds and hearts.

Open letter petitions UN to ban the development on weaponized AI | Anthony Wood | GizMag.com

Open letter petitions UN to ban the development on weaponized AI | Anthony Wood | GizMag.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

The Future of Life Institute has presented an open letter signed by over 1,000 robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) researchers urging the United Nations to impose a ban on the development of weaponized AI with the capability to target and kill without meaningful human intervention. The letter was presented at the 2015 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), and is backed with the endorsements of a number of prominent scientists and industry leaders, including Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, and Noam Chomsky.

To some, armed and autonomous AI could seem a fanciful concept confined to the realm of video games and sci-fi. However, the chilling warning contained within the newly released open letter insists that the technology will be readily available within years, not decades, and that action must be taken now if we are to prevent the birth of a new paradigm of modern warfare.

ESO's ALMA provides detailed look at galaxy formation in the early Universe | Chris Wood | GizMag.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

Astronomers have used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to observe distant clouds of star-forming gas from just 800 million years after the Big Bang. The findings represent the first time that the objects have been seen as anything more than just faint blotches, and the new data from the observations is set to significantly impact our understanding of the early Universe.

Due to the sheer distance between the telescope and its subject, the galaxies ALMA is watching form were actually born less than a billion years after the Big Bang, during a period known as the epoch of reionisation. During this time, the Universe was flooded with a fog of hydrogen gas, from which the very first galaxies ignited. Until now, not much was known about these earliest of galaxies.
