Live Stage: Lozano-Hemmer @ Guggenheim [us NYC]

Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents Levels of Nothingness — a performance-installation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, featuring Isabella Rossellini :: September 17, 19, 20, 21, 2009; 7:30 pm :: Peter B. Lewis Theater, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue, New York City.

Levels of Nothingness, co-written by philosopher Brian Massumi, is inspired by Vasily Kandinsky’s explorations of synaesthesia, most notably in his Yellow Sound (1912), a composition in which he proposes linking the senses using levels of abstraction. Lozano-Hemmer employs a computerized microphone to analyze live voice in real time and extract physical and linguistic data that, in turn, controls a full rig of rock-and-roll concert lights, creating a color show that surrounds the theater.

Live Stage: DataGolem Lab [uk Portsmouth]

DataGolem Lab :: July 30, 2009; 4:00 – 7:00 pm :: Space Gallery, Eldon Building, University of Portsmouth, Winston Churchill Avenue, Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

You are invited to see the work in progress of 14 participants who are working together over 5 days to develop a piece of responsive and adaptive software for artists.

Drawing on the metaphors of artificial life, in computer science, literature and the arts, the title DataGolem compounds Data – “the qualities, characters, or symbols on which operations are performed by computers” with Golem – “a shapeless mass, a human figure of clay supernaturally brought to life, an automaton, a robot” to suggest a radical, generative live art performance system.

[Yasmin] synaesthesia

Guto Nóbrega wrote: … I would like to introduce myself to this list and put some questions on this topic of synaesthesia, mainly motivated by the article of Sergio Basbaum (commented on this discussion).

… I am Brazilian artist, researcher and teacher doing Ph.D. at the Planetary Collegium program/ University of Plymouth – UK. My studies are pretty much focused on the interrelation of the observer, artist and the artwork (in a form of a technical object), which I consider as being a interconnection of organic nature.

In the course of my research I have developed the artwork Breathing, which involves a simple robotic system connected to a plant via electrodes. Continue reading
