Park View Hotel


Hotels ‘Bleed’ into the Neighborhood

Park View Hotel— by Ashok Sukumaran–stretches between the Cesar Chavez plaza in downtown San Jose and the neighbouring Fairmont Hotel. Using specially-built pointing devices, audiences in the park can access interior hotel spaces, by “pinging” them optically. Once found and hit (two different modes on the scope) the interiors release their properties into a wireless network… the color of the interior propagates stochastically, leaking out of the building skin, jumping across the street, and entering some street-lights in the park below. In this way, the park enjoys a certain neighbourly access to the hotel, inverting the usual character of the relationship.

This project was the result of a residency at Sun Microsystems Labs, where the artist was (according the residency brief) working with SunSPOTs, small “programmable object technologies” which are a simple-to-use prototyping platform for embedded technologies, or the so-called “Internet of Things”.

Responsive Art

FEEDBACK focuses on art responsive to instructions, input, or its environment and creates one possible narrative of the multi-faceted histories of art that uses digital technologies as a medium. FEEDBACK interweaves two themes relating to responsive art. One theme traces the concept of feedback from art based on instructions—be they natural language or code—to art that sets up open systems reacting to input from its immediate environment or the Internet. A second theme explores the concept of light and the moving object and image from Kinetic Art and Op Art to responsive notions of television and cinema. FEEDBACK links these themes in order to illuminate how different artistic practices developed over the past 50 years are interconnected and have informed each other. The exhibition is not a historical survey but features a selection of pieces that underscore how related ideas have been expressed at different points in time. Artworks are not presented in chronological order but in thematic groups or pairs that branch and connect. Continue reading

Upgrade! Skopje


Iliadahomero: Language as Code

Upgrade! Skopje: Iliadahomero [ performance ] :: The Iliad of Homer, book 1 :: Translated by Odorico Mendes (Brasil, 1799-1864) :: directed by: Octavio Camargo :: performed by: Claudete Pereira Jorge :: Monday, 04 June 2007 :: start: 21:00 sharp :: Length of the performance: 50 min :: Cultural Center Tocka, Skopje :: free entrance.

Line I+M proudly presents the Iliadahomero performance, which is part of the European tour of the Iliadahomero Theatre Company in May – June 2007 with Claudete Pereira Jorge, directed by Octavio Camargo. The performance will be in portugese. Here, Homer is used as a media, a vehicle for interaction in different platforms of languages projecting different translations to different idioms and also sharing the code, (seeing language as code) of the literary matrixes of occidental thinking bringing this ancient formulation to a more comtemporary transposition. This brazilian group begins their tour from Thessalonikа (for the first Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art ), and then travels to Skopje, Istanbul, Sofia, München, Lisbon, Porto… This event is established as a collaboration between Upgrade! International nodes, emerging network of new media artists and curators. Continue reading

Reconfigurable Costume


A Platform for Interactive Performance

Leah Buechley’s reconfigurable costume consists of a torso piece and an assortment of sensing appendages that can be snapped to the torso. Sensors in the appendages include muscle flex sensors, accelerometers, bend sensors and touch sensors. Sensor data is relayed to a computer, via a bluetooth module embedded in the torso, where it can be used to control or generate music, video and other multimedia content.

The costume, built using her version 2.0 e-textile construction kit, is form-fitting and stretchy. The electronic modules are kept as small as possible so they do not interfere with the dancer. The costume was used in an improvisational performance in May, 2007 to control a player piano. This performance was a collaboration with Michael Theodore, a professor in the music department, and Nicole Predki, a graduate student in the dance department. Click here for a movie (150MB).

Valerie Bugmann


Secret Under My Skin

Secret Under My Skin, by Valerie Bugmann, is a performance that allows us to reflect on our natural necessity/desire to express our emotions, to share our innermost thoughts and to see them extended in the world.

The performance takes place in the room of secrets where a skin-to-skin communication network* is employed. Here, the performer and the space await the opportunity to become alive through the interaction with the participant who comes to intimately confess/convey a secret by touch. A lighted keyboard floating in the darkness invites the participant to type a secret into its glowing keys. Once typed out, by simply touching the keyboard the secret is reintroduced into the participant’s body in the form of its new physicality – an electric wave. The secret, now flowing from the keyboard into the participant’s body is ready to be further transmitted/confessed to the performer by touch.
