Created by Hélène Portier at ECAL, 20°C is a collection of devices designed to question our relationship to data through a series of physical challenges that enable/disable access.
Created by Berlin based onformative, true/false is a kinetic sculpture comprised of arrays of circular black metal segments set in mechanical columns. Interlocking and rotating around fluorescent light tubes, the cylinders cover or expose the light to display an endless number of patterns.
Created by Jayson Haebich, The Crystallisation Event explores a speculative future in which the endless digitisation and quantification of data has caused information to become supersaturated and begin a process of crystallisation. The project is presented as a speculative museum exhibit showing future artefacts from this post crystallised data world.
Created by Manuel Jiménez Garcia and Gilles Retsin, ‘Voxel Chair’ is a first prototype designed using a new design software specifically developed for robotic 3D-Printing which rather than using pre-defined forms and then “slicing” these it into toolpaths or triangular patterns, allows to design and control thousands of line-fragments.
Created by Philipp Schmitt (with Margot Fabre), ‘Computed Curation’ is a photobook created by a computer. Taking the human editor out of the loop, it uses machine learning and computer vision tools to curate a series of photos from an archive of pictures.
Created by the R&D team at the creative technology agency DT, Anti AI AI is a wearable neural network prototype designed to notify the wearer when a synthetic voice is detected in the environment.
Created by Refik Anadol in collaboration with Google’s Artists and Machine Intelligence program, ‘Archive Dreaming’ is a 6 meters wide circular installation that employs machine learning algorithms to search and sort relations among 1,700,000 documents.
Created by Seoul based artistic duo Shinseungback Kimyonghun, ‘Animal Classifier’ is an AI trained to divide animals into arbitrary classifications to foreground the imperfections and edge cases in classification systems.
Created by Yuri Suzuki Design Studio and presented at the recent Milan Design Week, Sonic Pendulum is a sound installation in which articial intelligence imagines and materialises an endless soundscape.
Created by the Mediated Matter Group and the MIT Media Lab, GLASS II is the group’s most recent work in the area of 3D printing optically transparent glass now at architectural scale.
At the Digital Media study program in University of/the Arts Bremen, computer science meets design, while engineering and natural sciences interconnect with the arts. We present you four recent “semester” projects exploring topics ranging from VR, popular media to digital nature.
Created by Matteo Crivella, Markov Decisions is a generative audio system that combines random processes and sonic behaviours of matter. Data is created in Pure Data that drives the instrument through voice coil actuators putting the sheet of brass under stress and generating a tensional field in which the metal changes from one vibrating state to another, in relations to the input and its physical properties (mass, elasticity, morphology).
