Akousmaflore: Sensitive and interactive musical plants

Akousmaflore is a garden made with real musical and interactive plants or flowers. Each plant reacts to the human touch of a spectator by a specific sound language.Our aura is hot, electric and invisible. It can act here on the vegetable foliages by offering the experiment of a reactive environment. When the spectators caress the plants, they start to sing. Become sensitive musical instruments, they make it possible to compose a floral orchestration. Alliance between nature and digital In ou...

Degradarte

English below E' stata proposta una legge sul diritto d'autore che mostra tutto l'imbarazzo che le istituzioni italiane mostrano nei confronti dei nuovi media. Imbarazzo derivato da un misto di motivi: dalla non-conoscenza/competenza, al peso subito da lobby di industriali e di editori, al semplice desiderio di attrarre consenso grazie a nuove parole d'ordine quali 'software libero', 'licenze creative commons', 'libera conoscenza'. Senza, però, realmente preoccuparsi di capire le nuove pos...

Tulsita

Turbulence Spotlight: "Tulsita" by the Wa-KOW! Collective http://turbulence.org/spotlight/tulsita Needs Flash plugin The Wa-KOW! Collective was founded on the idea that the distinctions between artistic media are problematic and productive rather than essential. Their primary goal is to find ways to blur those boundaries. The group--made up of poets, musicians, and photographers--works in and around the borders between text, sound, and image, exploring the relations between the three media ...

Critical Code Studies Blog

I wanted to announce the launch of a new collaborative blog titled Critical Code Studies (http://criticalcodestudies.com). The blog is dedicated to exploring interpretations of computer code within cultural contexts. Rather than focusing primarily on making code function or even the pursuit of "beautiful" code, critical code studies brings in critical theory to examine the ways in which the lines of code reflect, shape, and reproduce our culture including aspects of class, gender, race, sexuali...

Vida, Art and Artificial Life Award Winners

The hybrid forms of the artistic proposals submitted to VIDA and the transformation of the discipline of A-Life itself have prompted the jury to consider new issues, such as the rising importance of simulation in both social life (for example, in the concept of virtual personality) and organic life (evident in the concept of "neo-organisms"). These phenomena are increasingly present and have therfore received special attention in our current approach to art and artificial life.

SVEN CV computer vision software

SVEN CV - the computer vision software used for SVEN (Surveillance Video Entertainment Network http://deprogramming.us/sven) - is now available to the public. The features and interface were designed specifically for the SVEN project, so the interface isn't what you might expect from user-friendly, general purpose software. However, we hope it can be useful for other public space projects, as it is specifically designed to track people in uncontrolled settings, as opposed to a gallery or stage w...
