Talk: La fabbrica della conoscenza e della sostenibilità urbana Mario Panizza / Italy The “knowledge factory” is a dear metaphor in Rome Tre. Since its founding, the University has been proposed as a constituent part of the social fabric in which it is part and its commitment has focused, through the recovery and reconversion of existing buildings, on the planning of the territory and the upgrading of Areas destined for degradation. Through a constantly evolving project, always attentive to the needs of the context, our property has been enriched with buildings once destined for other purposes: little “university” silhouettes that, despite functional adaptation, have transformed them into new plants Still keeping their “personality”. Here is the idea of the “knowledge factory”: a project that, in the full recovery of historical memory, is capable of transforming the territory through modern structures; A metaphor useful, therefore, to represent the transition to the […]
Talk: Narratón: ¿Contamos historias alrededor de la reconciliación? MediaLabs / Colombia MediaLabs net, created in November, 2016, from EAFIT (Medellin), Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Bogota) Universidad de Caldas (Manizales) and Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano (Bogota), launches the Narratón, a proposal of collective creation, which look for to generate multi-format contents that speak of the reconciliation from the most varied optics and perceptions. The Colombian postconflict calls for new ways of being told both from the narrative and from the technical and the Narratón will be the meeting point to relate it from sound, written, audiovisual, photographic and interactive contents among other formats. .
Design and collaborative construction of a modular structure on a large scale, based on an analogous system of form generation and transformation, based on biological and geometric principles. A collective work is proposed with 30 people who will be divided into five groups of six members each. The exercise consists in the design of a volumetric system that occupies a space of 6m x 6m x 6m generated from the union of six (6) three-dimensional modules which in turn are composed of sixty (60) cubic constructions.
To Samarcade, the vision is clouded and deepened by the contact of architecture and its innumerable ornaments. Everything is of a vibrant fixity: the ties compose and decompose fleeting motifs. Everywhere, on the ground, on the walls, on the surface of the domes, a mute art unfolds, whispering of words, an abstract art generating penetrating visions. Mosaics prefigure our pixelated images. The fabrics and their reflection of “moiré” effect, the carpets and their imbricated motifs aspire the look, capture it and animate it of a kaleidoscope movement. We are at the heart of an abstract universe, mathematical and spiritual based on rhythm and repetition; Where the eye is no longer the starting point from which the “images” are ordered, but the crucible where they are formed and dissolve.
Hasard pendulaire # (pendulum random) is a series of sound and sculptural installations, made in harmony with the exhibition space. They are composed of a pendulum that oscillates above a spatial partition. Performative, these installations/ instruments are activated by a launcher, the interpreter who define the course of things with a simple unconscious gesture. Indeed, when thrown, the pendulum strikes, throughout its race, the sculpture thus producing specific rhythmics of acoustic sound corresponding to used materials.
The work of Berrada, who starts from his studies in art and science, unites both intuition and knowledge, science and poetry. In his work he explores scientific protocols that imitate, very closely, different natural processes and / or climatic conditions.
“I try to master the phenomena that I use in my works, just as a painter dominates their colors and brushes. As brushes and colors I use heat, cold, magnetism and light.”
Invited in 2014 in the Meetings Arts-sciences of St Priest, Guillaume Marmin and Philippe Gordiani collaborated with the Research center in Astrophysics of Lyon in the production of Timée, review of Platon’s eponym work. Between mathematical and metaphysical, the philosopher describes “Timée” as the solar system where the distances between planets amount to harmonious musical intervals. The universe would be ordered such a completed baptized partition Music of Spheres. Based on exchanges and reflections around this theme, the installation delivers a subjective and poetic interpretation of the origins of the astrophysics.
