Created by Fabio Carbone, Neural Evolution is a an experiment created in Processing that trains a Neural Network through a natural selection process (genetic algorithm) in a scenario where the only survival is food.
Created by Regina Flores, Holobiont Urbanism is a research project that sets out to study, map, and visualize the microbiome of New York City, inviting participants to reimagine the city they live in as more than a vast metropolis, but rather as a complex and adaptive biological superstructure.
This research project by Gramazio Kohler Research at ETH Zurich titled ‘Mesh Mould’ investigates the unification of reinforcement and formwork into a single robotically fabricated material system. Developed with the use of industrial robots, the process allows ‘spatial robotic extrusion’, creating interdependencies of mesh typology and concrete.
Created by Luiz Zanotello, The Aerographer is an installation that explores the state of uncertainty in times of ubiquitous technological mediation, borders among territories and boundaries among bodies.
Performed at the Camberwell College of Arts with 6 graduating graphic design students, Analogue Systems is a project that draws inspiration from the overworked arguements of superiority between analogue and digital process.
Designed by the Mediated Matter Group in collaboration with Stratasys and inspired by her most recent album—Vulnicura, The Rottlace is a series of masks for Björk, exploring the themes associated with self-healing and expressing ‘the face without a skin’.
Created by Design I/O, World’s Tiniest Violin is a ‘speed project’ that uses Google’s Project Soli – Alpha Dev Kit combined with the Wekinator machine learning tool and openFrameworks to detect small movements that look like someone playing a tiny violin and translate that to the volume and playback of a violin solo.
Created as a collaboration between Prokop Bartoníček and Benjamin Maus, Jller is part of an their ongoing research in the field of industrial automation and historical geology. Installation includes an apparatus, that sorts pebbles from a specific river by their geologic age.
Created by United Visual Artists, Blueprint is an installation designed to explore the relationship and parallels between natural and artificial systems – creating a visual composition that uses mathematical principles of logic that underpin life.
Created by Ralf Baecker and opening this week at the NOME gallery in Berlin, Order+Noise (Interface I) investigates the boundary and space created by two interacting systems that are set in motion by the random signals of Geiger-Müller tubes.
Created by Danilo Sampaio and William Victor Camilleri at the The Interactive Architecture Lab at UCL/London, Hortum Machina, B is a half garden, half machine, cybernetic lifeform that explores new forms of bio-cooperative interaction between people and nature, within the built environment.
In late February 2016, a group of openFrameworks users and educators gathered in Denver Colorado to work on improving the ways people learn and use openFrameworks (OF). They worked intensely for 3.5 days, 12 hours per day, collectively committing more than 800 people-hours to creating and improving openFrameworks learning resources to help students around the world learn how to create with this powerful digital arts and design tool.
