04.07.17 - Hack It! - Art Fest New Media Art #Hack

04.07.17 - Hack It! - Art Fest New Media Art #Hack | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Organized by Victoria Bradbury and the New Media 420 Advanced Interactive Design students

 

Hackathons first emerged in the commercial tech sector where people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. Art Hacks branch off of this phenomenon while also stemming from art historical precedents of collaborative making practices in the New Media field. At this event, groups will combine computer code with traditional art materials to co-create projects. Hack It! DIY Dystopia will engage participants to combine code, microcontrollers and cardboard to envision, prototype and develop survival-oriented materials.

 

This event will involve two UNC Asheville classes. It is led by NM 420: Advanced Interactive Design with students from ARTS 178: Powerful Stories Freshman Colloquium as participants. Collaborative teams will work together for five hours to create a final techno-sculptural project considering the themes of survival and technology. (Anyone is welcome to come and observe the process while also participating in short-term hands-on activities on-site).

ESLOV IoT Invention Kit - Arduino unleashes a serious Internet of Things system for hardware hackers

ESLOV IoT Invention Kit - Arduino unleashes a serious Internet of Things system for hardware hackers | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Back in the old days hardware manufacturers felt safe in the knowledge that no mere hardware hacker could attempt to recreate their inventions. From Sony to Philips to LG to Samsung, the consumer electronics industry was locked up and no one could crack the case. Until those meddling Arduino kids came along…

 

Now anyone can make cool hardware and, thanks to Arduino, it is easier than ever to connect your devices to the Internet and take in data from the outside world. The ESLOV IoT Invention Kit is an official Arduino product that adds Internet of Things capabilities to your hardware products...

De l’usage politique des technologies à la #Transmediale 2016 par Ewen Chardronnet

De l’usage politique des technologies à la #Transmediale 2016 par Ewen Chardronnet | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
A la 29ème Transmediale, à Berlin du 2 au 7 février, des tribunes et des discussions plutôt que des expositions, autour de la défense des libertés civiles et de l’autonomie numérique dans une Europe sous tension. Après-coup.


Si l’an dernier le rendez-vous des médias tactiques s’était intéressé à la marchandisation des big data dans nos sociétés du contrôle social, le directeur artistique, Kristoffer Gansing, a choisi pour l’édition 2016 de focaliser sur notre société « anxiogène ». Une anxiété traduite par la continuelle et nécessaire tension qui mène les hackers, makers et activistes médias, dans leur volonté de rester indépendants et agents des transformations démocratiques de la société...

F[HACK]TORIES – Tous les samedis au ZINC, créativité et de prise en main des outils en tout genre

F[HACK]TORIES – Tous les samedis au ZINC, créativité et de prise en main des outils en tout genre | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

En ce début d’année, ce n’est pas vraiment un nouveau rendez-vous mais une invitation nouvelle à nos ateliers du samedi.

Une créativité mise à l’honneur au travers de nouvelles thématiques, mises en œuvre et en circulation dans nos deux lieux : le Transistor et le LFO.

Donc tous les samedis, nous vous réservons  4 heures de créativité et de prise en main des outils en tout genre. Numériques bien sûr et étendus à la fabrication d’objets.

Pour marquer cette proposition, nous vous invitons à notre tout premier atelier de l’année :

 

L’ ATELIER DU PARFAIT INCONNU

Pour déjouer la vigilance accrue

Partie 1 – 9 JAN

Partie 2 – 16 JAN

#Samsung Announces Their Entry into the #Arduino Family

#Samsung Announces Their Entry into the #Arduino Family | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

When you think about Samsung, the first products that come to mind are probably phones or televisions, not Maker-focused electronics. Today, with their announcement at Internet of Things World, Samsung has entered the Maker world with their ARTIK platform, an Arduino compatible family of devices targeted towards Internet of Things applications.


Currently there are three ARTIK devices: The ARTIK 1, ARTIK 5, and ARTIK 10. All are multi-core ARM processors with built in Bluetooth Low Energy. The ARTIK 5 and 10 also include Wi-Fi, BT, Zigbee, and Thread wireless connections.


Combining this powerful hardware with the ease of use and existing knowledge base of the Arduino platform, Samsung hopes to make development of IoT platforms easy to get off the ground.

Les Arts Codés - Un lieu de convergence entre savoir-faire traditionnels et numériques

Les Arts Codés - Un lieu de convergence entre savoir-faire traditionnels et numériques | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Depuis les années 80, l’activité humaine poursuit sa métamorphose « digital » passant d’îlots automatisés à une numérisation globale de la société, toujours plus hybridée à notre travail, notre créativité et notre intimité. LES ARTS CODÉS est un lieu de recherche, de création et de production partagé par plusieurs partenaires qui investissent la conjugaison des savoir-faire traditionnels et de la programmation, vers un possible entre artisanat et micro-industrie numériques. Notre collaboration est riche à la fois d’exigences nouvelles par rapport au travail mais aussi d’expériences concrètes qui permettent de toucher du doigt des façons originales de produire, d’innover, de collaborer, de concevoir...

Fructus animalis - 2 weeks interactive art residency in the #fablab of La fruitere numerique

Fructus animalis - 2 weeks interactive art residency in the #fablab of La fruitere numerique | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

This work is the fruit of a shared tech-art residency in the biggest rural fablab of Europe, "La fruitere numerique". The tech-artists specialties are a priori opposed in their disciplines but dialogue gave a new dimension to their work. After digging in the personalities, the obvious appears, the roots of this team's work join in a fundamental principle, a strong desire to give back life to apparently dead or unwanted material. Evolving in hackerspaces is also a great training for the tech side of the team, fighting against planned obsolescence being a tradition, the good reflexes were immediately ready.

 

Moreover, "La Fruitiere Numerique" participates in this fight by collecting a great number of aging electronic devices so parts salvage was even simpler than finding food : infrared sensors & emitters from broken VCRs & remote, old mouse sensor, lasers from DVD burner, etc.

 

The collaborations of these makers gave birth to an exhibition in which the visitor is in immersion. For him, it's a total artwork experimentation, in which every elements are connected.

A New Advocacy Group Is Lobbying for the Right to Repair Everything /// #makers

A New Advocacy Group Is Lobbying for the Right to Repair Everything /// #makers | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
As all our things become ‘smart,’ companies are increasingly saying that fixing them is illegal.


Last summer, when the Copyright Office asked if anyone wanted to defend the right for video game console jailbreakers to mod or repair their systems, no one had a formal legal argument prepared. A new association representing repairmen and women across all industries was just formed to make sure nothing like that ever happens again.


Repair groups from across the industry announced that they have formed The Repair Coalition, a lobbying and advocacy group that will focus on reforming the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to preserve the “right to repair” anything from cell phones and computers to tractors, watches, refrigerators, and cars...
