Turbulence Commission: “Panemoticon” by Ali Miharbi and John Priestley

Turbulence Commission: Panemoticon by Ali Miharbi and John Priestley [Needs Firefox (16 or later recommended), headphones/speakers, mouse/trackpad]:

We know how you feel. Panemoticon observes your behavior, makes a few inferences about your emotional state, and plays music to match your mood. Your mouse/trackpad use says a lot about your energy level, confidence, and perceived control over your environment. Panemoticon tracks and analyzes these data to create an image of your mood, and then generates music, adjusting properties such as tonality (major/minor), harmonic & rhythmic complexity, tempo, timbre, and proximity. Collective mood is calculated for all Panemoticon users on a given site. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “WoodEar” by Peter Traub

Turbulence Commission: WoodEar by Peter Traub [Needs download, and Speakers/Headphones]:

Bringing the body of the tree to the network is a natural fit — a tree is a network too: roots sensing and absorbing nutrients, leaves sensing and photosynthesizing sunlight, and phloem and xylem running throughout to carry nutrients across the structure. WoodEar attempts to merge the dynamic qualities of this biological network with the digital network. A series of sensors attached to the tree stream data on the state of its environment — light, temperature, air pressure, and wind. This live data is merged with photos and recordings of the tree’s immediate surroundings into a generative application/installation. By downloading and running the application, anyone can access the live environmental experiences of the tree — one that may be very distant from them, but that still shares the same air, sun, earth, and sky.

Life in Code and Software: Mediated Life in a Complex Computational Ecology

Life in Code and Software: Mediated Life in a Complex Computational Ecology, David M. Berry (ed), Living Books About Life:

The essays in this collection explore the relationship between living, code and software. For Berry, technologies of code and software increasingly make up an important part of our urban environment - indeed, their reach stretches to even quite remote areas of the world. Life in Code and Software introduces and explores the way in which code and software are becoming the conditions of possibility for human living, crucially forming a computational ecology, made up of disparate software ecologies we inhabit. As such we need to take account of this new computational environment, Berry argues, and think about how today we live in a highly mediated, code-based world - a world where computational concepts and ideas are foundational, and within which, code and software become the paradigmatic forms of knowing and doing.

Radius 22: “Radio Tune” by Public Domain [online]

Radius 22: Radio Tune by Public Domain:: April 1, 6, 8, and 13 at 6:00 pm CST.

Public Domain takes after its name sake, the public domain, and views, manipulates, edits, and comments on material found within it. Public Domain uses material from radio, records and the internet. The work often mirrors the collective unconscious through the use of voyeurism and dark humor. The resulting work is a collage of reality, time, and experiences.

Public Domain is Jane Burton and Doris Lake, a duo based in central London, UK. They often listen to the bells of Big Ben. Public Domain uses collage and montage to reflect upon the things they love, and simultaneously place them in ridicule. Continue reading

Good Listeners

(Read a review here) Good Listeners is a browser plugin that exposes the secret ways in which our browsing habits are shared with and mined by 3rd party web trackers (like Google Analytics and Facebook “Like”) without our consent or knowledge. Whenever a site exposes the visitor’s data to a third party service a confessional booth window is opened and the priest in the window offers words of invisible wisdom, divine providence and spiritual guidance pertaining to matters of web browsing, social networking, e-commerce and digital identity.

Good Listeners in a critical/ amusing/ awkward visualization and sonification of the vast data dimension passively generated by us and aggressively collected and mined by these mysterious omnipresent all-seeing tracking forces of the web. Continue reading

Programmed Visions: Software and Memory

Programmed Visions: Software and Memory by Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, MIT Press:

New media thrives on cycles of obsolescence and renewal: from celebrations of cyber-everything to Y2K, from the dot-com bust to the next big things - mobile mobs, Web 3.0, cloud computing. In Programmed Visions, Wendy Hui Kyong Chun argues that these cycles result in part from the ways in which new media encapsulates a logic of programmability. New media proliferates “programmed visions,” which seek to shape and predict - even embody - a future based on past data. These programmed visions have also made computers, based on metaphor, metaphors for metaphor itself, for a general logic of substitutability.

Chun approaches the concept of programmability through the surprising materialization of software as a “thing” in its own right, tracing the hardening of programming into software and of memory into storage. Continue reading

Decode Me

Decode Me by Mushon Zer-Aviv and Guy Saggee (with code by Zohar Arad). Mushon says “It is a code based online campaign for DECODE, an exhibition of code based works. Participants are invited to “decode” their FB profile image into a triangle pixels combination and stamp their share on the timeline. Every day at midnight the participant with the largest share on the timeline (longest time before next decode) gets a free ticket to the show.

The show opened this last Friday and would go on until mid-March, by that time we expect the Decoder of the Day to lead with just a few minutes share…”

Live Stage: Computational Culture [uk London]

Computational Culture: Double Book Launch with presentations by Olga Goriunova and Adrian Mackenzie :: December 8, 2011; 5:30 - 7:30 pm :: New Academic Building, LG01, Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths College, University of London, New Cross, London.

Computational Culture is an online open-access peer-reviewed journal of inter-disciplinary enquiry into the nature of the culture of computational objects, practices, processes and structures. The journal’s primary aim is to examine the ways in which software undergirds and formulates contemporary life. Computational processes and systems not only enable contemporary forms of work and play and the management of emotional life but also drive the unfolding of new events that constitute political, social and ontological domains.

RiTa† by Daniel Howe

RiTa† is an easy-to-use natural language library that provides simple tools for experimenting with generative literature. The philosophy behind the API is to be as simple and intuitive as possible, while still providing adequate flexibility for more advanced users. The download comes in two flavors: 1) the ‘core’ package, containing the jar files and documentation, and 2) the ‘TTS’ package that adds text-to-speech support. Additionally, statistical models for tagging, chunking, and parsing are available for more advanced users (see ‘Stat-Models’). RiTa optionally integrates with Processing and is both free and open-source. Continue reading
