Twitter writes Hamlet - #netart installation by Emmanuel Pire // #mediaart #artnumerique

Twitter writes Hamlet - #netart installation by Emmanuel Pire // #mediaart #artnumerique | Socialart | Scoop.it
“If you put 100 monkeys with typewriters in a room long enough, eventually you'll get Hamlet.”

 

A monkey on a typewriter would produce random letters. 6 random letters could be dhsllr or hamlet or klefim. Sometimes randomness produces sequences that seem not random. But the fact that snake has meaning but uvzmp has not is pretty much arbitrary. Some sequence of letters have meaning, some don’t.

 

Out of a random sequence of letters, it all boils down to probabilities. Out of a set of 26 letters, a sequence of 5 of them have about 1 / 12 billion (26^5) chance of being exactly the word snake. The probability of getting a certain word or sentence goes down as you add more letters.

 

So how about a full book ? The version of Hamlet I’m using has about 170k characters. Out of a reduced alphabet of 26 letters + 1 space (leaving out all the ponctuation), the amount of possible combinations for a set of 170000 characters is ridiculous (it’s a 240k+ digits figure).

 

Very unlikely, but theoretically possible. ....

myconnect, interactive installation - questions division of nature-human-technology // #mediaart

myconnect, interactive installation - questions division of nature-human-technology // #mediaart | Socialart | Scoop.it

Artwork by Saša Spačal, Mirjan Švagelj, Anil Podgornik

Myconnect is a symbiotic interspecies connector that questions anthropocentric division of nature-human-technology. With its circuit of signals and impulses, that are generated and translated by biological and technological organisms, Myconnect performs an immersive experience of symbiotic interdependence. Through this experience distinction between nature-man-technology can be seen as an arbitrary definition that serves particular biopolitical interests in human society, which can than be shamelessly wrapped in an ideology of utilitarianism and may conceal excessive exploitation.


Myconnect creates an experience of connectedness, of unqualified immersion through the sensory system of the body. The experience of symbiosis in Myconnect capsule is somewhat isolated, like microbiological cultures are isolated in a laboratory. In Myconnect symbiosis is purposefully separated from the environment in order to make it visible, audible and haptic for the visitor.

 

Myconnect is a neural connection, a sort of ‘tsaheylu’ from the sci-fi film Avatar. Tsaheylu means in Na’vi language a bond, a neural connection of two beings on Pandora planet formed via their neural queues. Na’vi connect to animals or plants that possess a neural whip or antenna. Neural connection can be formed also between two Na’vis during mating supposedly forming a strong, emotional, lifelong bond. Tsaheylu enables Na’vi deeper understanding of their environment since any emotion or pain is felt on both sides of the neural queues. Na’vi extend and transgress their body. They are becoming the environment thus blurring the body-environment division.

wonderWALL, interactive light installation by by LIKEarchitects - #lightart

wonderWALL, interactive light installation by by LIKEarchitects - #lightart | Socialart | Scoop.it

wonderWALL is an exhibition space designed to receive the masterpiece The Pool by Jen Lewin in Colombo Shopping Mall, in Lisbon, Portugal, built with approximately 20,000 strips of white and black fabric.
The temporary museum is totally suspended from the skylight on the central square and presents an abstract skin which oscillates with airflows created by the movement of people. The cylindrical space seeks to emphasise the centrality of the exposed artwork, enhanced by the abdication of a main entrance in favour of a fully permeable facade that dissolves the entrance along the entire periphery of the space. ...

The Heart Bot, an interactive installation by Sid Lee (Intel SMS Audio Launch Event) #mediaart

 

To celebrate this breakthrough technology Intel and SMS brought in Sid Lee to create an interactive digital and physical art instillation for guests to experience at the event. We collaborated with interactive director and New Museum fellow, Aramique from Tool. Together we created “The Heart Bot”. The Heart Bot is an experimental drawing machine controlled by the heart rate of a viewer. Heart Bot collects heart rate data from a large group of people during a fixed time, at a fixed location and translates it into generative art, demonstrating that each individual experiences a moment in a very personal way. The final work of art created by Heart Bot will be donated to Feeding America®, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity.

▶ The Transition Between Human And Cyborg : meet media artist Aaajiao (interview 2013)

▶ The Transition Between Human And Cyborg : meet media artist Aaajiao (interview 2013) | Socialart | Scoop.it

Chinese media artist Aaajiao combines visual and musical aspects to create works of art that imitate nature in thought-provoking new ways. 

 

Aaajiao (XU Wenkai) was born in 1984 in Xi'an, and later moved to Shanghai, where he continues to live and work. Aaajiao is one of China's foremost media artists, bloggers and free culture developers. In 2003 he established the sound art website: cornersound.com, and in 2006 he founded the Chinese take on the blog We Make Money Not Art: We Need Money Not Art. He is devoted to Processing, an open source visual programming software, Dorkbot, a non-profit initiative for creative minds, and eventstructure, an interdisciplinary center for art, media technology and academic research based in Shanghai. In his works in general, Aaajiao focuses on the use of data and its various forms of display, and how meaning is understood through the process of transforming the movement from reality, to data, and back again. His most significant aesthetic contribution to new media in China is a social one, acting as a vector for the interpretation and communication of international and local trends in the usages of software in artistic practice.

Yegor Tsvetkov uses neural networks to show the dangers of digital access...

 

With the use of neural networks, a photographer from St. Petersburg has matched people he met on the subway with their social network profiles and compared their real look with how they present themselves on the internet.
 
For six weeks Yegor Tsvetkov, a young St. Petersburg photographer, has been snapping random people and then identifying them on Russia’s biggest social network VKontakte with the help of the FindFace app (based on algorithms of self-learning neural networks). ...

La vie devient matériau. Le #bioart à travers l'oeuvre de Lu Yang par Catherine Barnabé

La vie devient matériau. Le #bioart à travers l'oeuvre de Lu Yang par Catherine Barnabé | Socialart | Scoop.it

Lu Yang est une jeune artiste dont les travaux s’inscrivent dans le courant du bio-art, une pratique qui consiste en l’utilisation des biotechnologies comme méthode de travail pour la réalisation de projets artistiques. De manière générale, les artistes du bio-art utilisent le vivant comme matière première.

 

Ils s’en approprient les ressources plastiques et scientifiques afin de développer une pratique tout à fait singulière dans laquelle s’amalgament les arts et les sciences, notamment la biologie moléculaire, la génétique et l’informatique. Les artistes qui touchent à ce type de pratique ne possèdent pas toujours les connaissances scientifiques suffisantes pour concevoir leurs projets, ils collaborent ainsi avec des experts qui les encadrent dans leurs réalisations.

 

De nombreuses questions éthiques émergent en observant les travaux de certains artistes qui utilisent, par exemple, des tissus humains ou encore, des êtres vivants, souvent vulnérables, pour mener à bien leurs projets. Les œuvres audacieuses de Lu Yang, que l’on peut qualifier d’expériences, mettent en doute notre morale et interrogent certains fondements des comportements éthiques socialement acceptables.

The Evolution of 8-Bit Art | #8bitart

Beginning with early Atari and Nintendo video games, the 8-bit aesthetic has been a part of our culture for over 30 years. As it moved through the generations, 8-bit earned its independence from its video game roots. The idea of 8-bit now stands for a refreshing level of simplicity and minimalism, is capable of sonic and visual beauty, and points to the layer of technology that suffuses our modern lives. No longer just nostalgia art, contemporary 8-bit artists and chiptunes musicians have elevated the form to new levels of creativity and cultural reflection.

The modular music box by monomatic

Nick Rothwell and Lewis Sykes will present their joint art project – Monomatic – introducing their collaborative body of work and drawing out some of the interpretative, creative and technical challenges they’ve faced along the way.

 

Monomatic is a collaboration, experimental playground and halfway house between the work of Nick Rothwell – composer, performer, software architect, programmer and sound designer – and Lewis Sykes – musician, interaction designer, experimental visualist, digital media producer and curator. They explore sound and interaction through physical works that investigate rich and sonorous musical traditions, such as PEAL: A Virtual Campanile – an installation which models the layout and operation of a traditional church bell tower – and the Modular Music Box – a reinterpretation of the familiar 19th century clockwork musical instrument.

Social Collider - an artistic datavisualization of twitter - by Karsten Schmidt & Sascha Pohflepp | Socialart | Scoop.it
The Social Collider reveals cross-connections between conversations on Twitter. It acts as a metaphorical instrument which can be used to make visible how memes get created and how they propagate. Ideally, it might catch the Zeitgeist at work.

12 artistes vivent pendant six mois avec la même identité - 12 artists lives with the same identity

12 artistes vivent pendant six mois avec la même identité - 12 artists lives with the same identity | Socialart | Scoop.it

english : http://www.ztohoven.com/?page_id=50&lang=en

Pendant six mois, douze artistes du collectif tchèque Ztohoven ont vécu avec la même identité. Ils ont voyagé, voté, acheté des armes et se sont même mariés sans que personne ne s'en aperçoive.

 

Cette histoire incroyable est racontée actuellement par le collectif dans l'exposition londonienne "Cultural Hijack" (détournement culturel). Elle a commencé en 2010, quand ces douze artistes ont adopté la même coupe de cheveux et fusionné leurs photos d'identité à l'aide d'un logiciel de morphing. Ils ont ensuite demandé de nouvelles cartes d'identité sous de faux noms.
