A class in the art of trash talk | UCLA

A class in the art of trash talk | UCLA | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it
Studying the depictions of garbage in art, documenatry and pop culture forces us to talk about a topic many consider taboo and trivial.
Monika Fleischmann's insight:

Starting a movie with nearly 40 dialogue-free minutes of a machine compacting trash on a humanless, garbage-covered Earth doesn’t sound like the recipe for an Oscar-winning hit.

So how did "WALL-E," the 2008 Pixar film about a small robot with big, expressive eyes who methodically converts mountains of garbage into small cubes of trash, gross more than $500 million worldwide?

UCLA professor Maite Zubiaurre is challenging the students in her graduate seminar that examines how trash is portrayed in art and pop culture to figure that out. And, more importantly, she’s asking what it says about us and our culture that we have turned a movie set primarily in a world of trash into a blockbuster.

"In ‘WALL-E,’ you have an opportunity to enjoy a landscape that you would in reality never enjoy," said Zubiaurre, a professor of Spanish & Portuguese and Germanic Languages in the College of Letters and Science. "It’s the hygienic experience of terror and dirt. It’s like the fun of playing with dirt without the danger."

Zubiaurre uses artistic, documentary and pop-culture portrayals of and references to garbage to get the academic world talking about a topic many consider taboo and trivial.

"People don’t want to talk about trash," Zubiaurre said. "As one of the documentaries I’ve watched said: ‘The only thing we care about with trash is that we leave trash on our curbside, and the next morning it is gone … "

A Wearable Concept Camera That ‘Flies’ Off Your Wrist, Takes Your Photo

A Wearable Concept Camera That ‘Flies’ Off Your Wrist, Takes Your Photo | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it


Instead of fumbling with stick mounts the next time you try to take a solo photo of yourself, perhaps you need a flying camera “drone” to get it done. Meet Nixie, a concept of “the first wearable camera that can fly”, offering users a hands-free photo-taking experience. 

With a flick of your wrist, Nixie, which looks like a tiny drone, detaches itself from your wristband and flies away “past your arms’ reach” to snap your photo before returning to your wrist.

Found object - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

However, as an art form, found objects tend to include the artist's output-at the very least an idea about it, i.e. the artist's designation of the object as art-which is nearly always reinforced with a title. There is usually some degree of modification of the found object, although not always to the extent that it cannot be recognized, as is the case with ready-mades.

EMCVoice: How Tech And Science Are Influencing The Ways We Cook

EMCVoice: How Tech And Science Are Influencing The Ways We Cook | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it
By Chau Tu

When you think about the word “data,” it’s likely charts, graphs and statistics come to mind. But have you ever considered what data might taste like? 

Monika Fleischmann's insight:

It’s the question chefs and cooks are increasingly asking as new technologies enter their kitchens and as data becomes ever present in our lives. The growing trend of the Internet of Things, for example, where household appliances are networked to personalize a consumer’s experience, is providing a unique opportunity for cooks to think smarter and more creatively about how to use ingredients, says Bill Schmarzo, chief technology officer at EMC Global Services.

“I think smart products are basically going to create smart kitchens that are really going to learn more about you, what you like, what your family likes,” he says. “For people who really enjoy cooking, it will make the cooking experience even more fun and more exploratory.”

Helsinki population data inspired a lasagna dish at the Data Cuisine workshop.

Schmarzo cites the app Foodily as a great example of how recipes and ideas about food are being collected and shared in social media. The Pinterest-like community is ideal for regular home cooks but could also be a useful database for technological integration in the kitchen.

“When you combine the smarter products with pulling data off these social media sites, you could have a scenario where in the kitchen, [General Electric] could have on their refrigerators an app — like a Foodily — that is constantly making recommendations,” Schmarzo imagines. “It knows what food is in your refrigerator because as you load food into the refrigerator, it scans UPC codes. It sees the expiration date and it should say, ‘Hey, given the food you have in your refrigerator and the kind of stuff you like, you might want to try this recipe.’”

Scientific techniques

Innovative chefs are also finding ways to incorporate new gadgets and scientific techniques into all aspects of dining, from creating new ingredients to planning creative presentations.

Jozef Youssef, chef and founder of Kitchen Theory, a project dedicated to sharing ideas on culinary science and gastronomy, didn’t come from a science background but enjoys incorporating modernist techniques in his cooking because he feels it’s an “opportunity to use scientific principles to improve what we do in the kitchen and even dispel certain myths and traditions, which have been handed down over the centuries.”

Youssef says he can spend weeks perfecting the dishes he prepares for Kitchen Theory’s experimental dinner events in London. One example of a meal he toiled over: an oyster-infused Japanese Dashi broth that was encapsulated inside a thin gel membrane, using a technique known as “spherification.”

“The main reason I liked this dish is because it took around six weeks to get the basics right,” he says. “There were lots of tests and lots of failure, but eventually through balancing the pH levels, we were able to achieve a sphere with great texture, mouth feel, flavor release and, of course, flavor.”

He says what’s interested him most about culinary science is “discovering the unknown, perhaps unlocking new possibilities.”

Data-based meals

Data is also finding its way into recipes. Data visualization expert Moritz Stefaner sees food as a way to express data and information. A few years ago, he teamed with artist Susanne Jaschko for a collaboration called Data Cuisine, which holds workshops where people express data in a culinary form.

“What we were interested in is how we could use food to express information, because normally you just eat for pleasure or for not being hungry anymore. We felt there was a really interesting opportunity to work with food as a medium,” Stefaner says.

In its inaugural outing in 2012, Data Cuisine gathered designers, statisticians, open data enthusiasts and others over a weekend to create a series of dishes inspired by data about the city of Helsinki. “The idea is we combine local data with local food,” Stefaner says. Data Cuisine recruited a local data scientist to provide data sets that included information about Helsinki’s population, produce, history, and so forth, though participants were encouraged to conduct online research as well. A local chef helped put together the cuisine.

One of Stefaner’s favorite dishes from the workshop was a lasagna that revealed how Helsinki’s population has grown more diverse in just a few decades. “So from the left side of the lasagna, you’re in 1980 and there’s no spices; it’s very bland,” Stefaner explains. But as participants ate the lasagna, they began to taste a change. Constructed like a timeline, the lasagna presented different spices from one side to the other, until the last bites ‘tasted’ like the ethnic composition of Helsinki in the present. “Each nation of immigrants, each ethnic group, had a characteristic spice,” he says.

Creating a dish with such specific data in mind can lead to a personal and lasting relationship with the food, says Stefaner. “You get sort of in touch with the underlying data in a very deep way. While you eat that dish, you meditate and reflect on the topic. I think you will not forget the simple statistic, because you have actually eaten the dish and it’s sort of anchored in the memory.”

Stefaner added that the lasagna-data dish did, in fact, taste pretty good.

Monika Fleischmann's insight:

Digital games are important not only because of their cultural ubiquity or their sales figures but for what they can offer as a space for creative practice. Games are significant for what they embody; human computer interface, notions of agency, sociality, visualisation, cybernetics, representation, embodiment, activism, narrative and play. These and a whole host of other issues are significant not only to the game designer but also present in the work of the artist that thinks and rethinks games. Re-appropriated for activism, activation, commentary and critique within games and culture, artists have responded vigorously.

Medienkünstler stecken oft in einem Dilemma. Einerseits sind sie fasziniert von den neuen Technologien und ihren Möglichkeiten. Andererseits haben sie den Blick für die Abgründe, die sich dahinter verbergen. In diesem Dilemma steckt auch die Südafrikanerin Gretta Louw.
Monika Fleischmann's insight:
"Me vs. Internet" heißt die aktuelle Ausstellung der Medienkünstlerin Gretta Louw, die noch bis zum 15. September 2014 in Mannheim zu sehen ist. (AFP / Robyn Beck) 

Die 34-jährige Medienkünstlerin ist in Australien aufgewachsen, pendelt mittlerweile aber zwischen Mannheim und Berlin. Der Fokus ihrer Arbeit liegt vor allem auf der Internetkommunikation und sozialen Netzwerken.

Wie die unseren Umgang miteinander verändern und oft auch unbewusst prägen, hat sie in zahlreichen Installationen und Performances thematisiert. Grade ist sie mit dem Kunstpreis der Heinrich-Vetter-Stiftung ausgezeichnet worden und eine Ausstellung ihrer Arbeiten ist noch bis zum 15.9. in der Mannheimer Stadtgaleriezu sehen. Der Titel: "Me vs. Internet".
