Turbulence Commission: “Empire State” by Steve Klise

Turbulence Commission: Empire State by Steve Klise [To observe, visit after sunset EST. To create, visit anytime]

Empire State transmits camera flashes from the Empire State Building’s observation deck in New York City to the virtual observation deck of your computer screen. It also provides step-by-step instructions on how to create a LEGO replica of the iconic building, which lights up every time a visitor takes a photograph of Manhattan at night. Empire State is a continuous feedback loop of physical and virtual architectures (building/model/code) and of the perceptions of sightseers both on-site and on-line. The actual is recorded, translated, transmitted, and received. The observers are the observed. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “Shadow Play - Tales of Urbanization of China” by Lily & Honglei

Turbulence Commission: Shadow Play: Tales of Urbanization of China by Lily & Honglei [Download Second Life for desktop and Layar for mobile devices]

Over the past few decades China has been urbanizing at an astounding pace. In 2013, the People’s Republic unveiled its plan to relocate 260 million people from China’s countryside to one of 21 “mega regions” by 2020 (cbsnews.com). Such a significant shift will undoubtedly transform China’s national character, which has been predominantly agrarian for millennia. Shadow Play weaves three interfaces, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Physical Reality (PR), and combines the past and present — through time-honored imagery, paint, “shadow play,” and new media technologies — to immerse participants in the realities of contemporary China.

Turbulence Commission: “Grow Old” by Jason Freeman

Turbulence Commission: Grow Old by Jason Freeman:

Why can’t music grow old with us?

Grow Old is a streaming EP that reflects upon the malleability of digital audio in a cloud-based musical world. The music, regenerated daily by a simple computer program, changes subtly from one day to the next and more dramatically over the course of weeks, months, and years. So just as we constantly bring new perspectives and experiences to the music we hear, the music itself also changes over time. The web site includes the current version of each of the EP’s four tracks, extensive notes on each track, the computer source code used to generate each track, and subscription links to automatically receive new versions as a podcast. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project)”

Turbulence Commission: iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) by Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Tim Perkis:

iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) is a social media mashup that uses the dynamic input of users to continuously rewrite a sonnet of William Shakespeare. The user phonetically rhymes a word or short phrase, which is added to the database of variations available to other users. For instance unhappily forsworn can be rhymed as so snappily untorn. Each time the page is loaded, a different selection of user-defined substitutions is used. A transposed midi version of “Lachrimae” or “Seven Tears,” by John Dowland (1563-1626), can be heard as well, with “perturbations” that increase as the sonnet text is modified. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “A More Subtle Perplex” by Ben Dean

Turbulence Commission: A More Subtle Perplex by Ben Dean [This is an open source project: you can contribute to the Perplex here]:

A More Subtle Perplex is an experiment in quasi-linguistic formalism, in gibberish. Borrowing and inverting techniques from computer science and analytic linguistics, it blindly strives to produce the outer appearance of language — to be all form and no content. The Perplex produces synthetic languages, or at least their syntactic forms, by writing letters to you. The production of the text and the production of a given language are interdependent.

Walking Walden with Wen Stephenson and Jane D. Marsching :: June 20, 2013; 1:00pm :: Walden Pond, Concord, Massachusetts (Meet at Thoreau’s House Replica near the Walden Pond parking kiosk).

Live Stage: HTML Instrument [se online]

HTML Instrument by Ursula Endlicher @ instrument :: July 6 - August 10, 2013 :: Kulturmöllan, Lövestad, Sweden.

HTML Instrument is an Internet art piece that uses the HTML code of the Triennial’s Website as score, implementing the exhibition’s representation on the Web into the physical context of the mill itself.

Contemplative, playful, and slightly absurd, HTML Instrument invites the audience to pluck a virtual wooden string instrument, which changes shape for different HTML tags that appear in the source code of the exhibit’s Website. Continue reading
