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

“Talking in string” by Chiara Passa

Talking in string, by Chiara Passa, is a generative video installation inspired by the ‘Rotor’, famous Luna Park rotating carousel. Talking in string develops into a cylindrical space around the audience that create the installation itself in real time by sending text messages via Twitter. Also the not present public on site can participate as well by sending messages by their remote Internet locations. The sentences run a recording system are displayed immediately. The texts speedily rotate around the space, changing direction, color, font, and some of them ramble in absence of gravity. The generated phrases, dissolving and wrapping themselves around disoriented people who are watching as texts become ’strings’, no longer readable. These ‘strings’ slowly disappear as light’s bundles surrounding the body of the spectators like colored trails left by comets or as if we were inside of Newton’s disk. Video preview. Images.”

Wanted: Tweets for Deep Thought V.2

Deep Thought V.2 is an artificial intelligence machine, a futuristic fortune teller who uses Twitter as its memory center, from which extracted phrases to communicate in random and poetic way with its environment. Deep Thought analyzes brain signals with galvanic sensors, understanding moods from the variation of current in the skin. It then uses this information to generate searches inside its Twitter memory to find and select phrases to communicate.

Wanted tweets #dtv2: We seek people who share their deep thoughts, micro-poems, micro-philosophy and derivatives. This will help us to extend the memory of our fortune teller, poet, thinker, futurist, machine. Just add hashtag #dtv2 in your tweets.

“Locating Story” by Dora García [online]

Blow-Up is pleased to announce Locating Story by Dora García, a Twitter performance beginning February 20.

Locating Story combines twitter, geo-location software and performance. A performer will monitor a person as they move through the city, from home to work, from his work to elsewhere. The performer does not know the person; like a detective, he is only given a very brief description and an image - therefore, the performer’s first task is to determine who the person is and what his daily routine appears to be. All these observations are transmitted via twitter to a twitter account @locatingstory and to the platform. Continue reading

#TrainingYRHuman by ecoarttech

#TrainingYRHuman by ecoarttech: A participatory Twitter-based artwork about the agency of animals who live with human-animals. While new scientific research has illuminated animals’ behaviors, their ethical attitudes, modes of cognition, and psychological awareness, our everyday experiences can also tell us a lot about our companion species if we listen carefully — about their diverse personalities and creative problem-solving and the ways they invent to express themselves and meet their needs in desires in a human-dominated world.

The #TrainingYRHuman participatory physical installation will début in beta form at the Animal Influence media art exhibition at Emily Carr University of Art + Design’s Intersections Digital Studios, November 2011. Thank you to University of Rochester for support of this project. More info >>

The Printing Dress: You Are What You Tweet

The Printing Dress by Asta Roseway and Sheridan Martin Small: You are probably familiar with the old saying, “You are what you eat” but how about, “You are what you tweet?” What if this concept were incorporated into garments of the future? Would you censor yourself, knowing you would reveal your statements to the world around you?

The Printing Dress is an artistic piece that explores the notion of wearable text and its potential impact on the future of fashion, as well as our social identity. Built almost entirely of paper, the dress enables the wearer to enter “thoughts” on to its fabric and wear them as public art. By selecting materials and technologies that draw on the past, present, and future of communication media, we encourage viewers to reflect on the path that has brought us to ubiquitous digital communication and to contemplate its forward evolution.
