01.05.2017 - Meetup VISQuébec et exposition «Graphiques dégénérés» #Dataviz | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE est heureuse d’accueillir l’exposition «Graphiques dégénérés» se déroulant dans le cadre de VISQuébec. Le Meetup et le vernissage de l’exposition auront lieu le 1er mai à partir de 17h. L’exposition se déroulera du 1er mai au 7 mai 2017.

Pour le Meetup, nous aurons le plaisir d’accueillir un spécialiste de Silicon Valley en visualisation de données : Micah Stubbs. Ce dernier s’implique activement à la communauté open source en partageant ses recherches.

Pour l’exposition et la présentation VISQuébec, les accidents dans la visualisation de données seront le sujet d’étude. Bien qu’esthétiques, ces erreurs dans les graphiques mènent à des aberrations inattendues pouvant se transformer en données non lisibles et peut-être même imaginaires. Pour la communauté de la visualisation de données D3.js, les échecs visuels sont partagés sur le Web via #d3brokeandmadeart. La mise en commun de ses échecs permet de comprendre le processus qui se produit lors de ces aberrations visuelles se rapprochant du «glitch art».

Cet événement est une invitation ouverte à la communauté artistique, aux curieux, aux professionnels et aux amateurs de la visualisation de données.

LOOPY: a interactive tool for thinking in systems by Nicky Case | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
In a world filled with ever-more-complex technological, sociological, ecological, political & economic systems... a tool to make interactive simulations may not be that much help. But it can certainly try.

 

LOOPY is also open source and public domain, meaning it's free for coders, educators, and just about anybody to re-use and re-mix LOOPY as they see fit.

Confessions of a Data Broker and other tales of a quantified society

Confessions of a Data Broker and other tales of a quantified society | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

While in Berlin for the Anthropocene Campus, i visited the one show you shouldn’t miss if you happen to be in town this week and next: Nervous Systems. Quantified Life and the Social Question.

 

The exhibition smartly enrolled artists, media historians and writers to chart the history and current rise of data-technologies and the world they bring about, exploring and exposing our quantified society and the processes of self-quantification. The food for thought that this show provide is overwhelming. Almost as much as this (partial) review of it!

 

Nervous Systems was co-curated by Anselm Franke and by Stephanie Hankey and Marek Tuszynski from the Tactical Technology Collective but because pretty much every single artwork and historical artifact in that deserves to be mentioned, i thought it would be better for everyone’s patience and sanity if i focused on one segment of the exhibition only.

We live in a computational world - Design by Data 19.01.16 @ 19:19 / Gaîté Lyrique | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Francesco Cingolani est directeur du Mastère Spécialisé DESIGN by DATA, co-fondateur de l’espace de coworking et fablab VOLUMES et co-organisateur de la Fab Academy Paris.


Dans cette première rencontre il expliquera son parcours atypique d’enseignant, architecte, designer et entrepreneur et sa mission de faire évoluer le métier d’architecte vers celui de computational designer. En effet, les nouvelles technologies paramétriques transforment les concepteurs d’objets et d’architectures en concepteurs de processus algorithmiques qui questionnent profondément la relation entre l’homme et la technologie dans la création et la conception. Dans cette perspective, des nouvelles compétences sont ainsi indispensables et une nouvelle posture conceptuelle s’impose.

Magnetic Movie (2009) - The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields

The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers' produced by fleeting electrons . Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?

Bureau d'études - Cartography of political, industrial, research, social, power networks - #dataviz | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The Paris-based artists Léonore Bonaccini and Xavier Fourt form the artist-duo Bureau d´études. For the last several years, the French Group has been producing cartographies of contemporary political, social and economic systems. The visual analysis of transnational capitalism is based on extensive research and usually is presented in the form of large-sized murals.


‘Governing by Networks’, a chart produced in 2003, visualizes the mutual involvements and dependencies within the global media conglomerates. Revealing what normally remains invisible and contextualising apparently separate elements within a bigger whole, these visualizations of interests and cooperations re-symbolize the unseen and hidden.”

Clint Fulkerson's tesselation drawings - interview by China Blue / The Engine Institute

Clint Fulkerson's tesselation drawings - interview by China Blue / The Engine Institute | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Clint Fulkerson is an artist from Maine who began his career with a degree in metal smithing. As a metalsmith he said he learned to become slow and precise which was the opposite to the painting he was doing at the time with broad gestural strokes. This became his new method of working and he now forces himself to “slow down and consider each moment in the present” which allows him to think about the influences of his work that range from science and math to information technology.With information technology, math, science and precision on his mind Fulkerson draws works that are remissent of tesselation (tiling) patterns that fit perfectly together. The drawings evolve based on rules that he has developed which define the placement of each mark. While his personal algorithms are the overriding design each work begins at a random place and then evolve as he works.

The evolution of the web - Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web

The evolution of the web - Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web. This infographic features major web browsers since 1993 such as Mosaic, Netscape, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome as well as key developments in web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


The web today is a growing universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, teeming with videos, photos and interactive content. What the average user doesn't see is the interplay of web technologies and browsers that makes all this possible.


Over time, web technologies have evolved to give web developers the ability to create new generations of useful and immersive web experiences. Today's web is a result of the ongoing efforts of an open web community that helps define these web technologies, like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL, and ensure that they're supported in all web browsers.

The colour bands in this visualisation represent the interaction between web technologies and browsers, which brings to life the many powerful web apps that we use daily.

Data Science and Digital Art History - by Lev Manovich / #mediaart

Data Science and Digital Art History - by Lev Manovich / #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

I present a number of core concepts from data science that are relevant to digital art history and the use of quantitative methods to study any cultural artifacts or processes in gen-eral. These concepts are objects, features, data, feature space, and dimension reduction.  These concepts enable computational exploration of both large and small visual cultural data. We can analyze relations between works on a single artist, many artists, all digitized production from a whole historical period, holdings in museum collections, collection metadata, or writings about art. The same concepts allow us to study contemporary vernacular visual media using massive social media content. (In our lab, we analyzed works by van Gogh, Mondrian, and Rothko, 6000 paintings by French Impressionists, 20,000 photographs from MoMA photo-graphy collection, one million manga pages from manga books, one million artworks of con-temporary non-professional artists, and over 13 million Instagram images from 16 global cities.) While data science techniques do not replace other art historical methods, they allow us to see familiar art historical material in new ways, and also to study contemporary digital visual culture...

The development of digital technologies has brought fundamental changes into our lives, cultures and societies. Social networking media user generated sites and peer-to peer networks have contributed to the development of a new participative culture where users have access to tools to create and share contents with peers.

As web users, we spend significant time online, searching for contents and visiting numerous web pages. These actions leave traces that can be collected, typically within web server logs. These data represent potential sources of valuable information for various private and public purposes.


Commercial companies have well understood how useful the above mentioned data can be if properly analyzed and transformed into exploitable information for their targeted audiences. Meaningful analysis, representation and comparison of actions, habits and navigation history of web users can help them to better understand and exploit the knowledge that these data contain.


However, in most cases, users cannot access the generated information that is kept private although the original data have been created by the users themselves...
