Continuing his exploration of personal objects in the age of information overload, Manual Reader and Memory Device are two new devices by Ishac Bertran that address perception, personal data collection and memory.
Created by automato, Politics of Power are speculative objects/devices/fictional artefacts that question political and social implications of network ownership/control using ideology driven distribution of electrical power as an analogy.
A P P A R E L is an augmented reality experimental fashion prototype by the Paris-based anticipatory design studio N O R M A L S. Turning data and network activity into identity and style, the project replaces the details of contemporary couture with jiggly mesh geometry digital overlays.
226 pages, 42 contributors, 22 features, HOLO 2 is ready to go to press: the magazine about emerging trajectories in art, science, and technology is back with another issue. Take a tour and order your copy at today.
Created by Eun Young Park, LINKKI is a kinetic construction toy based on planar linkage mechanism which allows users to design and prototype kinetic movements.
CAN and Swiss artist and designer Jürg Lehni will join an eclectic cast of international creators at this year’s OFFF MX (24 – 26 September) to “feed the future”.
Created by Tim Clark at the Royal College of Art, Design Interactions, High Speed Horizons is a design-driven, critical exploration into technology, innovation, big thinking, and our constantly changing attitudes towards the three, told through projected visions of alternative energies and flight.
Created by Adam W. Brown in collaboration with Robert Root-Bernstein, ReBioGeneSys – Origins of Life is an extreme minimal ecosystems theoretically capable of forming the self-organizing chemistries necessary to produce semi-living molecules and perhaps even protocells.
Created by William Fairbrother, Alberto Ruiz Soler and Oliver Smith, ERIS—2000 is a fictional scientific instrument invented by cybernetician Erica Symms in 1971. The device was used to show and study, through a simplified simulation, the consequences of human decisions on complex systems.
RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Created by Simon de Diesbach at ECAL with the support from Alain Bellet, Gael Hugo, and Christophe Guignard, OccultUs is an installation that exploits the potential of the Oculus technology by immersing the user in a sensory experience that mixes two distinct realities and simulated.
Retune is an annual conference in Berlin bringing together artists, designers, technologists as well as researchers and scientists to inspire interdisciplinary thinking and making.
