Fantastic Smartphones, alternative accessories, interactive installations and machine performances highlight the excesses relating to our use of these devices. By imagining innovative ways of interacting with our smartphones or by delegating our repetitive actions to machines, this exhibition takes a critical look at a society that has become addicted to an object that seems to have become indispensable : the “smart” phone.
Created by panGenerator, “Icons” is an exhibition exploring our shared cultural “imaginarium” of digital gestures, symbols, and artefacts, dragging them out onto a physical space, enabling audiences a direct, tactile confrontation and – also literally – a different visual perspective.
Created by Nathalie Gebert, ‘On Framing Textile Ambiguities’ is artistic research on situated objectivities at the intersection of textile processing and computer history. The installation is the output of a critical investigation on social and technical developments that led to the current local technological situation. Beyond being a metaphor for the theoretical framework of Donna…
SFPC tutor Celine Wong Katzman reflects on yet another successful session at the artist run school in New York.
Created by Piet Schmidt during the summer semester at UdK Berlin (New Media / Digital Class), Encounter is a a robotic arm with a mirror that curiously observes its surroundings.
Created by Saurabh Datta, “ChineseWhispers” is an installation comprised of four head figures performing “Chinese Whispers” – a sequence of repetitions of a story, each one differing slightly from the original, so that the final telling bears only a scant resemblance to the original.
Created by Michael Candy, “Synthetic Pollenizer” is a conceptual intervention in real-world ecological systems using artificial flowers. Inspired by natural pollenizers, these robotic replicas artificially pollinate bees, integrating into the reproductive cycle of local flora; an initiative into a cybernetic ecology.
Created by Juliane Götz and Sebastian Neitsch of Quadrature and currently on view within the Ars Electronica exhibition at the DRIVE Volkswagen Group Forum in Berlin, “Positions of the Unknown” is an installation of 52 custom-made mini machines that, ever so slowly, track unidentified objects (possibly classified satellites) in Earth’s orbit.
Created by Yuichiro Katsumoto, Mojigen and Sujigen is a collection of servo motors, connected together to write a letter by the means of manipulating the axis of the motor.
Created by Random International, Study for Fifteen Points explores the minimal amount of information that is necessary for the animated form to be recognised as human; and the fundamental impact created by subtle changes within that information.
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.
Currently on show at Berlin’s NOME Gallery is the latest work by Nils Völker titled Bits And Pieces. The installation consists out of 108 mass-produced toy spheres hanging in the middle of the exhibition space, individually addressable and controlled, to create organic waves that appear to move throughout the space.
Created by Felix Ros, Stewart is a hypothetical tactile interface designed for a fully autonomous car with objective to accommodate a healthy relation between man and machine.
Created by Shohei Fujimoto, Trace Ribbon is a device that automatically and continuously records and plays back movement. From reading the movements of the user via Leap Motion, it mirrors an organism that does not actually exist while simultaneously gaining an understanding of the rules of the movements that are physically taking place.
Created by Yingjie Bei and Yifan Hu at ITP, Moon Phases allows the audience to input any date and it will show the moon phase for that night (from the northern hemisphere’s perspective).
Created by Paolo Salvagione, String Fountain is a kinetic sculpture that uses propulsion to elevate a continuous piece of string into the air.
Eunyoung Park explores the awkwardness of gaze in this installation comprised of Arduino, ultrasonic ping sensors and cardboard.
Created by Seoul based artists Teo Park, “May the Force be With You” is a kinetic installation that invites visitors to interact with an interactive water tank. The tank uses gravitational force driven by the position of the viewer’s hand movement.
BNJMN is a “mobile sensory image production mechanism” with sole purpose to create original artworks by roaming in search of paper, painting whatever he wants, and signing it before he moves on to start the cycle again.
