Gysin&Vanetti – O is not a letter, it’s a circle

Gysin-Vanetti (Andreas Gysin & Sidi Vanetti) are an artist duo exploring images and patterns using the type geometries of multipurpose displays. What characterises the projects shown here is that their intention is to not modify the layout (or visual organisation) of the chosen hardware – they work with what the existing has to offer. Within these hard constraints they search for infinite visual permutation. Using only type and digit, Gysin-Vanetti build images, animations and generate patterns.

Facets of ‘New Making’ – Tektonics at ACT Festival

Huge stroboscopic datastreams, hypnotic human-machine choreographies, a cacophony of Korean, Japanese, English, German, and French – ten weeks ago, from November 25th to 28th 2015, an unlikely cross-cultural exchange took over the all new ACT Center in Gwangju, South Korea. More than a hundred artists, designers, curators, and educators answered our invitation to add their work and voice to the inaugural edition of ACT Festival, an opening celebration for the center’s monumental facilities.

Bookmarks and Milestones: An Annual Report (of Sorts)

By publishing (and many other) standards, HOLO just took its first steps. Yet nine months after the magazine’s launch, we look back and can’t believe how far we’ve come. What happened?

Floating Codes – The (spatial) topology of an artificial neural network

‘Floating Codes’ is a site-specific light and sound installation that explores the inner workings and hidden aesthetics of artificial neural networks – the fundamental building blocks of machine learning systems or artificial intelligence. The exhibition space itself becomes a neural network that processes information, its constantly alternating environment (light conditions/day-night cycle) including the presence of the visitors.

Music of the Spheres – A Conversation with Dan Tapper

Dan Tapper is a British artist based in Toronto that combines his interest in code and celestial form and his recent research project “Turbulent Forms” visualizes and sonifies various cosmic phenomena. To mark the recent exhibition of this work (and related collaborations with several composers) we present this extended conversation with the artist about cosmology and data aesthetics.

Codex Anima Mundi – Interview with FUSE*

In the countryside surrounding the town of Modena, immersed in peace and silence, a big luminous country farmhouse is home to one of the most up and coming protagonist on the Italian digital art scene: fuse*. We were lucky enough to have the chance to meet up with Mattia, to ask him about his, and his team’s, passion for using innovative techniques and aesthetics used in their work, continually seeking new ways and means: the secret of their relentless and overwhelming success.

Later this week CreativeApplications.Net is joining the Moscow-based sound, art and technology community MIGZ for yet another edition of the Moscow International Festival “Circle of Lights” festival taking place between 10th and 14th October.

Competition submission by Moscow based collective Stain, renders the building as a wireframe, revealing colour which eventually deflects of its structure, slowly turning into a recursion of its structural elements.

Curated in collaboration with the Moscow-based sound, art and technology community MIGZ, we are pleased to announce the Educational Programme for the Moscow International Festival “Circle of Lights” taking place 5th and 6th October at the Red October district.

Created by Seoul based duo Kimchi and Chips, “The Light Barrier Third Edition” is the latest and largest in the series of works by the studio to create volumetric drawings in the air using hundreds of calibrated video projections.

Created by Copenhagen-based artist and researcher Tobias Ebsen, Poème Mécanique is an electromechanical sound sculpture produced for Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme, a public walkway connecting the Place-des-Arts metro and Complexe Desjardins in Montréal.

From November to January 2014, Muriel Guépin Gallery in NY was the home to ‘Bright Matter’, an exhibition of enigmatic works by five international artists widely recognized for their spatial-aesthetic research, creative engineering, and stunning perceptual hacks. We check in with the event’s instigator, curator, and participating artist Joanie Lemercier for a report, the back story, and a 2015 teaser.

Light Barrier by Kimchi and Chips creates phantoms of light in the air by crossing millions of calibrated beams, creating floating graphic objects which animate through space.

Created by Andreas Gysin in collaboration with Sidi Vanetti, Fari is a kinetic installation created with an array of moving light heads in a geometric configuration and programmed as a choreography.

Building on the experience of our past educational programming at ACT Festival, Resonate, and Circle of Light, CAN has partnered to launch a new initiative in Toronto this August. Our first North American event, A-B-Z-TXT is a school for 21st century typography.

This weekend, February 3rd to 4th, we will join 230 TouchDesigner users at Derivative’s second ever TouchDesigner Summit in Berlin for an 48-hour marathon of workshops, masterclasses, and presentations.

Huge stroboscopic datastreams, hypnotic human-machine choreographies, a cacophony of Korean, Japanese, English, German, and French – ten weeks ago, from November 25th to 28th 2015, an unlikely cross-cultural exchange took over the all new ACT Center in Gwangju, South Korea. More than a hundred artists, designers, curators, and educators answered our invitation to add their work and voice to the inaugural edition of ACT Festival, an opening celebration for the center’s monumental facilities.
