Designing the Computational Image, Imagining Computational Design – An Excavation of Digital Form

“Designing the Computational Image, Imagining Computational Design” is an exhibition that excavates the foundation of computer-aided design and manufacturing and weaves together several ‘origin stories’ for contemporary consideration. The show recently closed after a seven-week run at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and CAN was fortunate enough to get a guided tour with curator Daniel Cardoso Llach as it was winding down.

L I T T L E B R O W S E R – Detaching the web from the semiotics of print

Created by N O R M A L S and published on FRAMED platform, L I T T L E B R O W S E R is an experimental web browser and game engine hybrid created using Processing. Fed with a single ‘home’ url, an autonomous crawler navigates web pages of which main elements have been translated into game objects—links become gates, divs are clouds, images turns to trees, etc.

Conversations On Chaos by Fito Segrera

Created by Fito Segrera, Conversations On Chaos is a project that explores the idea of order as an emergence from chaos. It uses chaos theory and elements from dynamic system studies and experimentation in order to create a system where two machines hold a chaotic conversation about chaos.

10 Most Memorable Projects of 2015

As 2015 winds down we look back at almost 200 extraordinary projects we’ve covered this year on CAN. And as is the case every year, picking the ten ‘best’ is hard if not impossible, as each of them has driven the conversation around the state of art and design in their own unique way. And yet, the following ten works stuck with us and, if anything, make great starting points for reflection and inspiration as we head into the new year. Until we continue our coverage in early January: happy holidays and thank you all for a great 2015!

GLASS / G3DP – 3D printing of optically transparent glass

Created as a collaboration between Mediated Matter Group (MIT Media Lab) and the Glass Lab (MIT), GLASS G3DP is a additive manufacturing process that enables 3d printing of optically transparent glass that also allows tunability by geometrical and optical variation that drives form, transparency, color variation, reflection and refraction in all things glass.

Conditional_Lover – A physical bot that automates your Tinder

Conditional_Lover is a bot that unlike its counterparts that live hidden in servers, has a physical appearance with a task to automate your Tinder using its “eyes” and “fingers”. It does this by analysing photos on your phone (webcam) and then selects or rejects it (prongs) based on an algorithm that combines your preferred age, golden ratio, smile, glasses, ethnicity etc.

Thymio meets ECAL – A workshop with 50 Thymio Robots

Earlier this year at ECAL (Lausanne/Switzerland), students were asked to develop projects using the Thymio robot during a one week workshop. Students worked then in group with the task to make Thymio(s) write a word, all those words was then put together to form a sentences that you can discover in the video below.

Resonate – Platform for Art and Technology

Last day in Belgrade in January 2011 and I receive a call from Maria and Jelena to quickly meet and have a quick chat before I head back to London. One coffee, two coffees and plenty of cigarettes we agree to do a festival – as simple as that. I don’t think I have ever made an important decision…

This online exhibition lets you discover the intricate strata of code and network that operate to deliver the content of an online search. Drift reveals how these strata continuously evolve, even behind what seems a very well known, stable, familiar web site.

Latest in the series of video essays by an artist and researcher Alan Warburton, is ‘RGBFAQ’, tracing the trajectory of computer graphics from WW2 to Bell Labs in the 1960s, from the visual effects studios of the 1990s to the GPU-assisted algorithms of the latest machine learning models.

Yuri Suzuki and Pentagram in collaboration with Counterpoint have re-imagined the Electronium – Raymond Scott’s instantaneous performance-composition machine.

“Designing the Computational Image, Imagining Computational Design” is an exhibition that excavates the foundation of computer-aided design and manufacturing and weaves together several ‘origin stories’ for contemporary consideration. The show recently closed after a seven-week run at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and CAN was fortunate enough to get a guided tour with curator Daniel Cardoso Llach as it was winding down.

Created by Yuri Suzuki Design Studio and presented at the recent Milan Design Week, Sonic Pendulum is a sound installation in which articial intelligence imagines and materialises an endless soundscape.

From the Digital Citizens Lab to making Processing more accessible – Lauren McCarthy, Los Angeles-based artist and Processing Foundation board member, surveys the work of the 2016 Processing fellows and sheds light on the Foundation’s 5-month fellowship program.

Created by Berlin based Ralf Baecker, Random Access Memory is a fully functional digital memory. Instead of operating on semi-conducting components to represent either the binary states of 0 (zero) or 1 (one), the memory uses grains of sand as storage material.

Ugly Dynamics is a personal exploration/documentation by Nikita Diakur exploring the effects and control of simulated dynamics in computer software, specifically in the work produced by his studio Ugly Films.

After the experiments in physical programming in the “Traces” project we reported on last year, Dana Zelig decided to examine the possibility of adjusting the plastic to fabrics, by means of pressing them together, allowing the heat to manipulate the plastic, and the manipulated plastic to effect the adjusted fabric.

Created by Martin Reiche and exhibited at his solo exhibition titled “NN – Compuatability, Survival, Cybergenesis” at Transmediale 2015, Drone Garden is an installation addressing the issue of naturality in a networked and virtualised environment.

At CAN we don’t really care for lists. But as we look back as the year winds down, we’re known to make an exception. To keep up with our tradition, we present our most memorable projects of the year.

Earlier this year, Resonate festival was the host to Transcranial, a CAN initiated project bringing Klaus Obermaier, Daito Manabe and Kyle McDonald to Belgrade for two weeks to work on a new performance piece, creating a bridge between three festivals in Europe.

Developed at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Spaxels (a portmanteau word from space pixels) are LED-equipped quadcopters. They make up a drone swarm that can “draw” three-dimensional figures in midair.

Developed as a prototyping technique for 3d printing, WirePrint is a piece of software that allows printing of 3D objects as wireframe previews.
