CAN 2018 – Highlights and Favourites

As 2018 comes to a close, we take a moment to look back at the outstanding work done this year. From spectacular machines, intricate tools and mesmerising performances and installations to the new mediums for artistic enquiry – so many great new projects have been added to the CAN archive! With your help we selected some favourites.

Spirotrope – Stirling Engine powered Spirograph animation

Created by Witaya Junma. ‘Spirotrope’ is a device developed from the hypothesis that an interactive artwork can be created from unrelated objects in a way such that each object is still visible in its essence, whether in its form or its function. The criteria is that the viewer must experience this by interacting with the artwork directly.

Norman – WebVR tool to create frame-by-frame animations in 3D

Created by James Paterson, Norman is an open-source WebVR tool to create frame-by-frame animations in 3D. Drawing inspiration and building on the work from Rhonda (2004/05), James turned to WebVR to build the tool in Javascript that runs in a web browser and lets him animate naturally in 3D using VR controllers.

Land Lines – Drawing satellite imagery through gesture

Created by Zach Lieberman in collaboration with Google’s Data Arts team, ‘Land Lines’ is a web experiment that lets you explore Google Earth satellite imagery through gesture. “Draw” to find satellite images that match your every line; “Drag” to create an infinite line of connected rivers, highways and coastlines.

Scribb by Mylène Dreyer – Pen-Paper-Mouse Interface

Created by Mylène Dreyer at ECAL, Scribb is a computer game in which the physical area scanned by the mouse is an integral part of the interaction. The player must draw black areas, detected by the mouse, to be able to evolve in the game, simultaneously managing the position of the mouse and the surface on which it is placed.

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.

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.

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.

Uncanny Rd. is a drawing tool that allows users to interactively synthesise street images with the help of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). The project was created as a collaboration between Anastasis Germanidis and Cristobal Valenzuela to explore the new kinds of human-machine collaboration that deep learning can enable.

Created by Luiz Zanotello, Habitat of Recognition explores the material dimensions of digital technologies by examining the intra-active tensions between the distinction and convergence of matter.

Created by California-based artist Sterling Crispin, Cyber Paint is a freshly-released VR painting app for Google’s Daydream platform. Not so much a painting simulator, its creator describes it as a “laboratory for algorithmic mark-making.”

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 Zach Lieberman in collaboration with Google’s Data Arts team, ‘Land Lines’ is a web experiment that lets you explore Google Earth satellite imagery through gesture. “Draw” to find satellite images that match your every line; “Drag” to create an infinite line of connected rivers, highways and coastlines.

Created by Hansje van Halem, an independent graphic designer based in Amsterdam (NL). the following video and images are the latest in the series of experiments that explore tension between a systematic approach, legibility, and (ir)regularity in typography.

Directed and developed by Moniker and Studio Puckey, Out of Line involves hundreds of animated lines being drawn by visitors on top of the music video. All drawn lines are saved on their servers and are then rendered into the video to be seen by future visitors.

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.

Created by Quadrature, Kartograph is a drawing machine that updates old maps by drawing new geographic data over the infrastructure of old times using the internet.

Created by Miguel Nóbrega, Possible, Plausible, Potential is a set of three series of isometric drawings generated by code and printed with colored markers on a plotter machine. In these drawings, Miguel explores a bridge between the iterative aspect of algorithms and the utopian aspect of modern architecture.

Created by Zach Liebermann and part of the Android Experiments initiative, Ink Space is a experimental drawing tool which uses the accelerometer on your Android device to move the drawings you make in 3D.

Created by Dana Zelig, Traces project explores the concept of programming everyday materials, a form of “physical programming” where objects are “made to act” on some form following specific instructions.

Created by Berlin based studio Quadrature, Satelliten is a custom build machine that brings the invisible movement of passing satellites in lower orbit to a tangible medium and scale.

Created by Oslo based computational design studio Void, Irregular Polyhedron Study #1 is a physical representation of the basic components of computer graphics; the vertex and the edge and explores the perceptual gap between the flat and the spacious, the analogue and the digital.

Created by Michael Frei, Mario von Rickenbachthe and the Zurich based Etter Studio, Plug & Play for iOS invites you to explore the feelings of anthropoid creatures that go beyond sexuality and reproduction: love.

Created by Kenichi Yoneda (Kynd) in collaboration with Tokyo ‘visual label’ BRDG, [BRDG020] Lilium is an audio-visual experiment that combines Kynd’s research into water colour simulation with the music by Yopparigami/Yu Miyashita.

Created by Princemio in collaboration with onformative, the Pathfinder project was created with aim to contribute to the creative processes of choreographic development.

Created by Rosalie Yu & Alon Chitayat, the project aim was to create a series of self portraits that treat the body as a canvas for 3d drawing.

Rising Colorspace is a new installation by the Sonice Development duo comprised of a third ‘systemic robot’ drawing it’s rising movements as bow-like lines onto a shiny metallic wall.
