Created by Michael Candy, ‘Cryptid’ is an animatronic light sculpture that uses 18 linear actuators and open source Phoenix hexapod code to walk through a space. As human and robotic, natural and synthetic are increasingly amalgamated, the projects questions whether machines could be considered a subspecies.
Created by the students at the Zurich University of the Arts, ‘Remote Materialities’ module and to be presented at the upcoming Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, ‘Remote Materialities’ explores the future scenographies of our coexistence with robotic devices.
Found in Translation is an interactive, immersive installation where using their own spoken sentences, visitors viscerally experience the process of machine translation. Visualizations show how the machine learning model clusters words from different languages by semantic similarity, and translations are presented typographically and auditorily across 24 languages.
“Augmented Shadow”, devised by Joon Moon, refers to a device and experience that implements a form of augmented reality using shadows. This device creates an alternate reality by superimposing virtual shadows on the actual shadows of objects according to the angle of the lighting device that the audience controls.
Created by Quiet Ensemble, ‘SOLE’ is a 360 degree video-mapping that, thanks to the use of 49 video projectors, simulates the movement of the sun around the inside the hall of the Salone degli Incanti in Trieste.
Created by Jonathan Chomko, and inspired by a conversation with Yo-Yo Ma around a performance of a previous work, ‘A Heart from Space’ is a tool for collective GPS drawing. To draw together, gather a group of of people and visit this website on a mobile phone and the website draws a line between the GPS…
Created by Artem Stepanchuk, ‘The Transcriptions of Space’ is an experimental application (PWA) developed using deep learning algorithms that demonstrates the ability of artificial intelligence to realize the inherent human creativity.
Four projects by students at ECAL (Media Interaction Design) explore the possibilities of VR. From alternative interfaces and public space to architectural interface and what its like to experience the environment of yellow ants.
Created by Aurélien Pellegrini at ECAL , ‘Pump and Surf’ encourages internet users to find out how much energy is spent when they are surfing the internet. The user is asked to make a physical effort equal to the energy required to convey the data that will enable the site to be displayed.
‘Invisible Network’ is a portable device that makes communication between machines perceptible and tangible. This device acts as a mediator between the user and the machines that surround him. Through its screen, it indicates the relations that it maintains with its personal environment.
Created by Vienna based Depart, ‘The Entropy Gardens’ is an explorative VR experience that challenges one of humanity’s most archetypical art forms – garden making. It explores its myths, aesthetics and modes of perception.
Created by Random Studio in collaboration with Arnout Meijer and RWA Electronics, the project is comprised of a lighting system in Random’s studio that emulates the movement of the sun and the ever-evolving states of natural light.
Latest in the series of groundbreaking projects by Mediated Matter Group (MIT Media Lab) is the new successor to the Silk Pavilion (2013) project, results currently on show (subject to COVID-19 restrictions) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The project utilizes an integrated kinetic mandrel designed to guide the natural spinning motion…
Designed and constructed by ART+COM Studios in collaboration with Futurium and Schiel Projekt, ‘Neo-Natur’ is a permanent installation for Berlin’s Futurium exhibition that explores our potential futures from different areas of life––from self-sufficient cities, to the future of work and ideas for more sustainable consumption.
Created by Philipp Schmitt, “Why Would You Want to Picture It” is a sculpture and sound installation engaging with opacity of ‘black box’ machine learning algorithms.
OpenDataCam is a open source tool to quantify the world. It consists of a camera attached to a mini computer that is running an object detection algorithm that counts and tracks moving objects.
Created by Richard Vijgen, ‘WiFi Impressionist’ is a field installation inspired by the cityscapes of William Turner that imagines the city as an electromagnetic landscape.
‘Algorithmic Drive’ is an interactive installation and performance inspired by inspired by autonomous cars and dash cam compilations. The work plays with the tension generated by confronting the technologies used by mobile robotics with the unpredictable nature of the world.
Created by Filipe Vilas-Boas, ‘Tracking Skynet’ comprises the recording of a surveillance satellite whilst being under surveillance of the same.
