Si l'arrivée des CC sur le site de partage de vidéos est un pas à saluer dans le combat pour la Culture Libre, il reste encore de la marge pour arriver à un véritable droit à la réutilisation créative.
For decades, Amon Tobin has constantly pioneered new sounds in the world of electronic music. So it makes sense that he'd want a visual stage show as advanced and experimental as his sounds. I think he nailed it this time.
The result? An geometric and downright beautiful video wall projecting visuals that float, spasm, surge and glitch all over the place. At times, the effect is immersive, feeling like the effects are projecting into space. And like Dvice writer (and Giz alum) Adam Frucci says, you should probably consider getting a ticket for this now.

Visiting museums has always been about self-improvement. Partly we seem to go to them to find something we already recognize, something that gives us our bearings: think of the scrum of tourists invariably gathered around the Mona Lisa...

Samsung Smart TV becomes a docent for the exhibition of 2011 Musée d’Orsay ㅡ Rêve et Réalité, opening from 4th of June through September at Hangaram Art Museum, Seoul Art Center. With the subtitle of “Les Chefs-d’oeuvre du musée d’Orsay á Séoul”, this exhibition presents a rare opportunity to meet painters like Vincent Van Gogh, Jean F. Millet, Claude Monet through their masterpieces. In particular, Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh is exhibited for the first time in Korea.
At the entrance of the exhibition, with the help of a ‘digital smart’ docent, viewers can learn the knowledge and information about the exhibited pictures through video clips, presented by Samsung Smart TV, and actually view those pictures through a four 46 inch LED integrated video wall. This Musée d’Orsay Exhibition is already creating serene attentions among picture lovers, for its ‘harmonic experience’ of art and technology.
Over the years, Sol LeWitt developed relationships with a cadre of assistants that he trusted to create his wall drawings — or more precisely, to carry out his legendary instructions for making them. “The draftsman and the wall enter a dialogue. The draftsman becomes bored but later through this meaningless activity finds peace or misery. The lines on the wall are the residue of this process. Each line is as important as each other line. All of the lines become one thing. The viewer of the lines can see only lines on a wall. They are meaningless. That is art.”
It will be interesting to see if the Milwaukee Art Museum responds to the growing consensus about becoming a center for dialogue about the Chinese crackdown of artists, particularly the recent imprisonment of China's most famous living artist Ai Weiwei, during its "Summer of China."
In conjunction with the highly publicized "Art in the Streets" exhibition currently on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, a new film from director Alex Stapleton explores the creative...
Instrument for Blank Architecture is a mobile listening device, adaptable to the space which it occupies. A tripod that is equipped with a balancing device and is generally used by a land surveyor to document landscapes and topographies, here, becomes an instrument dedicated to the exploration of mental landscapes.
