Que se passe-t-il quand les artistes pensent la technologie comme les ingénieurs ? Par Hubert Guillaud

Que se passe-t-il quand les artistes pensent la technologie comme les ingénieurs ? Par Hubert Guillaud | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

“Les artistes qui utilisent les nouvelles technologies sont une source essentielle pour comprendre la manière dont notre monde se confronte aux technologies”, estime Honor Harger. Prenons l’exemple de l’imprimante 3D, une des technologies actuelles les plus intéressantes, permettant de construire n’importe quel objet depuis ses spécifications. Si l’impression 3D a le potentiel de modifier la manière dont on fabrique les objets, l’illustration de ce potentiel par les artistes ne date pas d’aujourd’hui.

Irrational Computing / installation by RALF BAECKER

"Irrational Computing" is an artistic test of material, esthetics and potentials of the digital. The installation is based on semiconductor crystals – the basic commodity of information technology.

The Conversation - pataphysical processing environment by Ralf Baecker

http://www.no-surprises.de/the_conversation

 

The Conversation is an autonomous apparatus that incorporates an analogous and a digital part. These almost inseparable elements try to adapt to each other. As the process does not have a linear program it is not obvious which part controls whom.


The machine consists of 99 solenoids mounted in a circle. Together they carry three rubber bands (attractors) in the center of the circle. Each magnet works autonomously and tries to adapt to the forces in the network. The aim of the system is to keep a balance of forces. By turning the machine on, a process is activated that tries to conserve its initial state by contraction and relaxation. The rubber band acts as mediator between the single solenoids. Different initial rubber-band configurations (tensions) generate different patterns in time. Constellations appear and stay until disturbances make them decay. The whole installation is immersed in a polyphonic buzz generated by the constant shifting forces of the solenoid array. The Conversation is part of a series of installations and sculptures that deconstruct the fundamentals of symbolic processes.

Rechnender Raum (Computing Space) - ralf baecker

Rechnender Raum (Computing Space) - ralf baecker | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Ralf Baecker’s work Rechnender Raum (Computing Space) received its name from Konrad Zuse’s book of the same title from 1967, the first book on digital physics. Zuse proposed that the universe is being computed in real time on some sort of discrete computing machinery, thus challenging the view that some physical laws are continuous by nature. The physicist focused on cellular automata as a possible substrate of the computation.
