Laboratory’s mission is to provide practicing interactive artists with the time, space, and freedom to make thoughtful and innovative work. We offer space to live and work, tools, mentorship, and connections to make that happen. Plus, a $200 a month stipend if you have the right to work in the USA. Dates For our Fall […]
Created by the team at the Mediated Matter Group at MIT Media Lab, Aguahoja I is project/installation that is digitally designed and robotically manufactured out of the most abundant materials on our planet—the very materials found in trees, insect exoskeletons, apples and bones. Cellulose, chitosan, pectin and calcium carbonate are combined and compounded with high […]
Don’t miss the 9th installment of this inspiring Creative Technology Conference.
What is art? Is it the unsaid? The unsettling? The last few years have been very happening in the field of Generative/Procedural art. We have seen some of the exciting applications of this field hitting mainstream media — may it be generative architecture like the Digital Grotesque, or the AI generated paintings which sold for a bang […]
How do structures emerge in our model of a quantified, computational universe? From galaxies down to cells, atoms and strings. How does anything complicated get produced in nature? The artwork “Cellular Computation In Blue And Yellow” uses the cellular automata mechanism discovered by Stephen Wolfram in the 1980s found across physics, chemistry and biology to […]
90×200 is an installation that dramatizes the emotions of frustration, anxiety, and delirium through mechanical movements. The work is inspired by the artist’s own experience of being bedridden because of a serious infection. It stages the internal state of push-and-pull with a ghost body accompanied by stale and repetitive machine noises, signaling a symbolic sickness […]
Push buttons, sliders, switches and dials—we use such controls everyday and everywhere, but we barely notice them. Expressive Tactile Controls is a research experiment with a series of controls that are augmented by giving human personalities. What if each control had a unique personality and they could express its emotion only through haptic feedback? How […]
CAN has joined forces with UAL Creative Computing Institute to present the first in a series of events that examine new forms of cross-disciplinary art and design practice. Entitled “Document 1.”, it’s comprised of a workshop, seminar, and symposium, and takes place March 11th–13th at UAL’s Camberwell College of Art in London.
Created by RNDR, Open Highway is a real-time light installation visualising highway vehicles at a scale of 1:1 from the Leidsche Rijn tunnel over the A2 highway in Utrecht.
Created by Soonho Kwon, Harsh Kedia and Akshat Prakash, Anti-Drawing Machine project explores possible alternatives of how we engage with robots today—instead of purely utilitarian and precise, Anti-Drawing Machine is a robot that can be whimsical and imperfectly characteristic.
Created by SHI Weili, For this project, Terra Mars is a speculative visualisation by an ANN (artificial neural network) to generate images that resemble satellite imagery of Earth modelled on topographical data of Mars. Terra Mars suggests a new approach to creative applications of artificial intelligence—using its capability of remapping to broaden the domain of […]
Created by Radical Norms, 100% Chair is an exploratory project speculating on on the near future where humans and smart machines live, learn and work together. The project explores a design processes that consider Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) as a collaborator and a stakeholder. In the first of series of explorations, the team are looking at […]
