Science and Art Are Not Separate Disciplines, Says Brian Greene | Big Think | The Aesthetic Ground | Scoop.it

Turkish Musician Shows How to Play the Yaybahar, His Mesmerizing, Newly-Invented Instrument

Turkish Musician Shows How to Play the Yaybahar, His Mesmerizing, Newly-Invented Instrument | The Aesthetic Ground | Scoop.it
Once upon a time, a handsome man was trapped in a tower overlooking the sea. To amuse himself, he built a magical instrument. It was constructed of wood and metal, but sounded like something one might hear over loudspeakers at the Tate, or perhaps an avant-garde sound installation in Bushwick.

Berliner Festspiele - Martin-Gropius-Bau: ZERO

Berliner Festspiele - Martin-Gropius-Bau: ZERO | The Aesthetic Ground | Scoop.it
“Sometimes the real revolutions in art remain invisible until they are long past, yet the subterranean shock waves can persist for generations.” Daniel Birnbaum, ZERO aus heutiger Sicht, 2014 Over 50 years after the founding of the ZERO movement the exhibition is devoted not only to the first founding artists Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Günther Uecker, nor even just to these international artists who were close to ZERO such as Yves Klein and Lucio Fontana, but also to such forgotten artists as Hermann Goepfert, Oskar Holweck or Hans Salentin.

This Is What Happens When Machines Dream - Singularity HUB

This Is What Happens When Machines Dream - Singularity HUB | The Aesthetic Ground | Scoop.it
When we let our minds wander, sleeping or waking, they begin mixing and remixing our experiences to create weird images, hallucinations, even epiphanies.

These might be the result of idle daydreaming on the side of a hill, when we see a whale in the clouds. Or they might be more significant, like the famous tale that the chemist Friedrich Kekulé discovered the circular shape of benzene after daydreaming about a snake eating its own tail.

There is little doubt we are a species consumed by our dreams—that our ability to find unexpected new patterns in the noise is what makes us human and what makes us creative.

Maybe that’s why a set of incredibly dream-like images recently released by Google are causing such a stir. These particular images were dreamed up by computers.

Google calls the process by which the images were created inceptionism, recalling the movie, and likewise, the images themselves range from beautiful to bizarre.

So, what exactly is going on here? We recently wrote about the torrid advances in image recognition using deep learning algorithms. By feeding these algorithms millions of labeled images ("cat", "cow," "chair," etc.), they learn to recognize and identify objects in unlabeled images. Earlier this year, machines at Google, Microsoft, and Baidu beat a human benchmark at image recognition.

New Jorge Luis Borges-Inspired Project Will Test Whether Robots Can Appreciate Poetry | The Aesthetic Ground | Scoop.it
Jorge Luis Borges, as any reader of his stories knows, had a lot of ideas. Some of his ideas must have seemed pretty fantastical when he wrote stories around them from the 1920s to the 1950s.
