Everything I Know: 42 Hours of Buckminster Fuller’s Visionary Lectures Free Online (1975) | Hybrids | Scoop.it
Think of the name Buckminster Fuller, and you may think of a few oddities of mid-twentieth-century design for living: the Dymaxion House, the Dymaxion Car, the geodesic dome.

O seminário organizado por Ivana Bentes, professora e pesquisadora da Escola de Comunicação da UFRJ, para o Oi Futuro

O primeiro convidado a debater sobre o assunto foi Cicero Silva, pesquisador e professor de mídia, arte e comunicação digital e coordenador do Grupo de Software Studies no Brasil. Seu tema foi a estética da informação e achei muito interessante como os dados e metadados podem se transformar em incríveis obras visuais.

Ele deu vários exemplos como o trabalho de Aaron Koblin, artista especializado em visualizações de dados. Suas peças do Flight Patterns mostram as principais rotas de aviões conseguidas através dos bancos de dados de passagens aéreas. (...)

BHOREAL | Hybrids | Scoop.it

BHOREAL Interfaz de control de código abierto para aplicaciones multimedia, orientada a DJs, VJs, músicos, hackers y creadores DIY

Luciana Santos.'s insight:

BHOREAL es una interfaz de código abierto basada en la plataforma Arduino que permite controlar todo tipo de software y hardware mediante una superficie con pulsadores retroiluminados por LEDs RGB.

Puedes utilizarla como dispositivo OSC/MIDI para disparar samples en directo, como secuenciador, sintetizador, caja de ritmos, generador de mapas tonales o control remoto. También puede funcionar en modo autónomo como controlador algorítmico y generativo, simulador matemático, interfaz de juego, pantalla de LEDs de baja resolución o cualquier otra aplicación que se te ocurra.

Gracias a su versatilidad, BHOREAL en una herramienta fundamental para DJs, VJs, músicos, artistas, hackers y todo tipo de creadores con espíritu DIY que quieran experimentar con una pieza de hardware infinitamente reconfigurable y reprogramable.

El controlador BHOREAL permite salvar las limitaciones impuestas por los fabricantes de dispositivos convencionales. Su esencia Open Source posibilita modificar y adaptar la herramienta con total libertad.

El equipo de MID lleva años trabajando en esta interfaz para maximizar su flexibilidad y ofrecer configuraciones adaptables a las necesidades de cada usuario. En base a estas premisas, BHOREAL está disponible en 4 versiones diferentes: dos kits DIY para montar tú mismo y dos unidades listas para usar.

Tanto el diseño del hardware como el firmware son completamente código abierto y están publicados bajo licencias Creative Commons. El hardware BHOREAL es compatible con sistemas operativos de Windows, Mac OS y Linux.

Can beauty help us to become better people? – John Armstrong – Aeon

Can beauty help us to become better people? – John Armstrong – Aeon | Hybrids | Scoop.it
True beauty pleases the eye and the mind – but can it help us to become better people?

-

Schiller thinks of human nature as an arena in which two powerful psychological drives are at work. On the one hand, there is the ‘sense’ drive which lives in the moment and seeks immediate gratification. It craves contact and possession. It can be coarse, as when one yearns to swig great draughts of beer; but it can also be elevated. Schiller associated the sense drive with his friend Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who longed to see things with his own eyes. Goethe was a direct observer, a natural empiricist who immersed himself in practical detail.

The second drive identified by Schiller was the ‘form’ drive: the inner demand for coherence over time, for abstract understanding and rational order. This drive, thought Schiller, seeks to leave behind the peculiarities of one’s own experience and discover universal principles. It is at the heart of justice – which is not about getting what you want for yourself – and is animated by principle. When we think that a person is entitled to a fair trial, we are motivated, Schiller says, by the rational ‘form’ drive. We are loyal to the abstract, general ideal of due process.

What he’s calling the sense drive and the form drive are powerful impulses in us. But they are often in conflict. The demands of the short term are at odds with the hopes of the longer view. Comfort and ease struggle against a sense of duty and responsibility. The allure of freedom clashes with the longing to be steadfast and rooted in existing commitments.

The work of artist Olga Ziemska has a special relationship with the natural world.  Natural materials such as wood, sand, and stone comprise much of her work.  However, it is in synthesizing aspects of humanity with the natural world that Ziemska’s work is especially effective.

Scientists develop new app to turn mobile phones into 3D scanners

Scientists develop new app to turn mobile phones into 3D scanners | Hybrids | Scoop.it
Dec.5, 2013

3D scanning aims to capture the geometry of the 3D world, however most existing solutions require a complicated setup. But here is an amazing stuff: The Computer vision and geometry Lab of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) developed an app that turns your normal smartphone into a mobile 3D scanner.

 

Instead of taking a normal photograph, a user simply moves the phone around the object of interest and after a few motions, a 3D model appears on the screen. As the user keeps moving, additional images are recorded automatically and used to extend the 3D model. The nice thing is, as all calculations are performed directly on the phone, the user gets immediate feedback and can select additional viewpoints to cover missing parts of the 3D model. "This is an important advantage compared to solutions that batch process all the images in the cloud at a later time", explains Marc Pollefeys, professor at the Institute for Visual Computing.

Articule.net | Art et culture numérique - par Frédérique Entrialgo

Articule.net | Art et culture numérique - par Frédérique Entrialgo | Hybrids | Scoop.it

articule.net est un site consacré aux cultures urbaines numériques et aux pratiques artistiques impliquant les technologies de géolocalisation (“locative media art”).


Les supports numériques mobiles reliés aux réseaux numériques sans fil influencent notre manière d’habiter la ville, sa socialisation et notre relation au bâti.


Le corps en mouvement, celui du flâneur ou de l’usager, est dorénavant totalement impliqué dans l’accès et la consultation des réseaux de façon contextualisée.

 

Les nouvelles écritures cartographiques modifient notre vision et nos pratiques du monde.


Les interfaces se diversifient, deviennent de plus en plus volatiles, se fondent dans l’existant et se confondent avec lui.


Les réseaux numériques fusionnent avec l’environnement matériel pour former des espaces hybrides et stratifiés (“réalité mixte”). Ces espaces sont le lieu d’expérimentations plastiques, de propositions fonctionnelles et de réflexions théoriques que ce site se propose de référencer.

Frédérique Entrialgo est Professeur d’enseignement artistique à l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Marseille, Doctorante en Sciences de l’Information et de la Communication à l’Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis (laboratoire I3M) et membre de l’équipe de recherche InsARTis.
