“Biomodd” by Angelo Vermeulen, et al

Biomodd is a collaborative art project conceived to challenge presumed notions of opposition between nature and technology in different cultures throughout the world. The title Biomodd came up spontaneously as a working title, but very rapidly came to embody the nature of the project and naturally became the final title.

Biomodd is predicated on a set of themes:

Symbiosis between biological and electronic systems. In Biomodd, nature and technology are not juxtaposed but rather fused into imaginative hybrid installations. The core idea is the creation of experimental systems in which modified computer networks coexist with living ecosystems. The challenge is to bring biological life as physically close to the electronics as possible, and allow them to communicate with each other through meaningful symbiotic relationships.

Live Stage: Unleashed Devices [uk Brentford]

Unleashed Devices :: September 1 – October 22, 2010 :: Watermans, 40 High Street, Brentford TW8 0DS, UK.

Unleashed Devices is an exhibition of DIY, hacking and open source projects by artists who explore technologies critically and creatively. By reconstructing, remixing and reinventing everyday electronic devices, these take on a new life as they shift our vision of the use of data and purpose of technology. Playing with frontiers, such projects not only challenge our conception of technology but also music, art and design. Here, they reveal the power of DIY modes as tools to stimulate social reflection and participation. Continue reading

Julian Oliver – TEDxRotterdam 2010

The Artvertiser: Improved Reality Platform

The Artvertiser source code is now available, licensed under the GPLv3. It is an Improved Reality platform, designed for the live substitution of advertisements in a video stream with alternative 2D content. The code was initially developed by Julian Oliver before being significantly improved by Damian Stewart.

A typical application of The Artvertiser at work might be the Product Replacement of street billboards with 2D art using a laptop with webcam or camera-enabled mobile device. You might also want to have your own personal exhibition in the Louvre, substituting well known paintings with your own creations and inviting others to enjoy the show. Counter-propaganda operations are also well suited to the platform, like changing the imagery of a disliked political campaigner before uploading the recorded result for all to see. Alternatively, it can be used to product replace planar images in archival video, like a Hollywood movie or TV advert, using popular films as an ‘exhibition surface’. Continue reading

Live Stage: Decoding Military Landscapes [us San Francisco]

Decoding Military Landscapes: A Participatory Workshop to Develop a Public Archival Practice with Javier Arbona (UC Berkeley), Bryan Finoki (Subtopia), Nick Sowers (Soundscrapers) :: June 18, 2010; 10:45 am – 12:15 pm (schedule) :: Part of Toward a Just Metropolis: From Crises to Possibilities :: June 16–20, 2010 :: San Francisco Bay Area

Join a working group that will brainstorm an open-source archival tool to catalog and examine the legacy of military urbanization.

We want to begin with the premise that: the crisis of the contemporary spatial condition is produced in part by the hyper-expansion of militarization, operating in realms removed from public scrutiny and agency. Continue reading

JardínSolar – SolarGarden

JardínSolar – SolarGarden — by Dream Addictive — is a series of sculptures that explore the field of sound interaction, using renewable energy as supply source. The intention is to integrate open source hardware and software, and solar cells as energy source, proposing a series of prototypes that generate audio and relational interfaces.

The creatures in the “solar garden” are entities of light. They feed themselves from electrons, process their energy and translate it into electronic songs. They are sociable and sensible machines, they like public space, where they can call people and invite them to play actively with established chance and ethereal frequencies of electronic sound. The sculptures are made of wood, acrylic and plastic, their aesthetics are some times mimetic and some other times are imposed on landscape, decomposing space at a visual and sound level.

(O)pen S(ource) LOOM by Margarita Benitez

OSLOOM by Margarita Benitez (lead instigator), et al:

The OSLOOM (pronounced O S Loom) project is about creating an open source hand loom that is computer controlled by basic software where anyone can simply weave a photo via a web browser (twill/satin). It would also be able to import weave ready files from other software (such as Bhakti/Alice photoshop method). The loom can either be built by you or will be available as a kit. Both the software and the hardware are open source and plans will be ultimately obtained through the website.

Margarita Benitez is an art + technology and fiber artist based in Chicago + Miami. She is interested in the explorations of art within the making and DIY culture. Her work is rooted in exploring underlying social issues in technology – exploring how today’s society copes with the overwhelming presence of technology, surveillance, data mining and media bombardment.
