    Nacido en 1987, Mathias Isouard obtuvo su diploma en la Escuela Superior de Arte de Aix-en- Provence en 2011. Es de esos artistas interdisciplinarios que experimentan un enfoque sensorial del material a través de prácticas empíricas relacionadas con sus sensaciones. Las instalaciones de Mathias Isouard, que combinan escultura, imagen y sonido en sus vínculos al espacio, utilizan las cualidades acústicas partículas de un lugar o de un material. Matias Isouard explora y desarrolla sus propios herramientas de creaciones, instrumentos de producción, que se vuelven a veces autónomos o interactivos. A través del tratamiento “tiempo real” y de producciones realizadas a menudo “in-situ”, las transformaciones del espacio y las situaciones que el artista implementa permiten a los visitantes de ser a la vez espectadores, actores, y/o objetos de la experiencia. Durante estos últimos años, su trabajo fue presentado en eventos de arte contemporáneo tales como Le domaine des mumures #2, Futur en Seine, LAB30 Media Art Festival, City Sonic, Reevox, Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs d’Europe et de la Méditerranée, World Event Young Artists, Disorder, Festival Gamerz…

    Documentales web, ficción interactiva, sonido binaural, realidad virtual… La evolución de las tecnologías y de los usos alteran las industrias culturales. Frente a aquellos que califican de “nueva Nueva Ola”, las estructuras establecidas tienen de vez en cuando dificultades a mutar y a adaptarse. Por eso, desde 2011, la asociación Transmedia Immersive University obra a la promoción de escrituras transmedia y contribuye a la emergencia de este tipo de proyectos. Esas escrituras son la ocasión de implicar una pluralidad de actores de origen disciplinar variado, audiovisual, juego video, web, espectáculo en vivo, la asociación TIU se posiciona como un lugar de encuentro de esos diferentes campos profesionales. Nuestras misiones: reagrupar profesionales de medias principalmente del audiovisual, de juego video, y más generalmente del sector del entretenimiento, y favorecer su transición numérica; Popularizar la innovación cultural ante el público en general, y en particular a los jóvenes, y favorecer la producción, la difusión, la edición y la explotación comercial de proyectos transmedia en Francia y a través del mundo; Revelar los nuevos talentos de la creación web mediante el TIU Lab, un laboratorio pedagógico y profesional que acompaña a lo largo del año la realización de proyectos de estudiantes y favorece su inserción en el mercado; Colabora con el descubrimiento de la creación numérica a todos por medio de un encuentro anual, el festival I LOVE TRANSMEDIA, y suscitar reflexiones y debates sobre las evoluciones a la obra dentro de las industrias culturales a la era digital.

Después de diez años haciendo parte de la Unesco como responsable de proyectos culturales y de producciones implicando artistas de notoriedad internacional, Pascal Haudressy decide de dedicarse completamente a su trabajo artístico personal. Sus primeras obras datan de 2005. Desde el principio, sus esculturas, instalaciones y videos se caracterizan por su excepcional tecnicidad y la utilización de materiales y de tecnologías avanzadas. El carácter estético del trabajo claramente asumido por el artista nunca se asigna sin una fuerte dimensión simbólica y de una problemática existencial sobre el futuro del hombre. Virus, clonación, nanotecnologías, robótica, realidad virtual: las mutaciones del real y la pluralidad de experiencias resultando de eso constituyan el punto nodal de la reflexión y de la práctica artística innovadora de Pascal Haudressy.

    A single image serves as the onset for potentially continuous chain of phantasmagoric imagery. Using Google’s image recognition in the search-by-image feature, the video moves through over 50,000 images from throughout the internet, crossing boundaries of professional and sociocultural utility. In reconciling these different modes of use, the search engine must swim across disciplines of visualization, evincing a semiotic coherence to parlay with that with the user. This transformation of content is depicted twofold. Firstly, in one view, a hyperactive slew images progresses over 31 minutes, exposing unexpected topological shifts in rapidly near-anonymous content. Secondly, at an alternatively precise scale, the first 2.6 seconds of the video is scrutinized with a high speed-camera while being played on a LCD screen. The brief moment is magnified over 14 minutes and 36 seconds. At this speed the transition between images becomes apparently processual, and the association of content all the more conspicuous.

    What Do We Know Of Time When All We Can Know For Real Is Now?

    Andrea Williams / USA
    What is time from inside, what is time from outside? The Moments project investigates the length of ’a moment’ of attention and of the tension between the internal and the external experience of time. Using real-time algorithms this dynamic dual-screen installation situates the viewer in the centre of the emotional, philosophical and phenomenological debate on the substance of time and lived experience. The project collated video for a year, recording close to a thousand separate clips of noticing, interstitial glances that show a moment occurred. Contrasting this is a series of extended walking self-portrait video ’derives’ through the streets of Hong Kong. In the material a central character moves through the neon cityscape and crowded back alleys in continuous framed shots. The video is treated, graded and re-processed and frames re-played by algorithmic editing in real-time in any order, at any speed, in any direction. On one screen the works shows discrete moments of sense and attention, on the other screen a central figure surrounded at every moment by a maelstrom of temporal shift in one of the most complex cities in the world. Positioning the viewer in the center of the argument for time.

    Deeper than Digits: Tepid Night Erased is a poetry generation algorithm with humans in the loop. It composes and displays a new short poem every few minutes to enrich the thoughts of passersby. Additionally, anyone may edit the poems generated by the algorithm or suggest new words or phrases. Not only will these edits be displayed until the next poem is composed, but the algorithm will re-use them when composing future poems. In this regard, the human is influenced by the poems written by the computer, and the computer is in turn influenced by the human, resulting in a collaborative relationship. Likewise, subsequent people that edit the poetry then also interact with the previous people who did so through the algorithm, and the resulting poetry is a sort of crowd-sourced collective intelligence as mediated by a machine.

    COME/IN/DOC / Collaborative Meta Interactive Documentary / is a transmedia meta-documentary that reflects on the interactive documentary. It consists of 3 interconnected parts: a documentary series, a multimedia platform and exhibitions. This is the result of four years of intensive research (2012-2016) conducting interviews with experts in the field of interactive documentary with the aim of answering a basic question: what is an interactive documentary? The idea is to reflect about this emerging field using different platforms. The project could be described as a “meta-interactive-doc”, an experimental interactive documentary that reflects himself on the new genre. COME/IN/DOC is a collaborative project because many people selflessly worked on it in one way or another. But especially thanks to the experts in interactive documentary who made the project a collaborative work in the broadest sense. COME/IN/DOC is a meta-documentary that attempts to explain a kind of documentary based on that actual genre. COME/IN/DOC is interactive because its platforms and interfaces, social networks and training make it possible for people who are interested to participate, contribute and even generate content. COME/IN/DOC is a documentary created through theoretical and applied research and has become a unique and valuable tool for training and teaching.

    Mirror IV : Stranger is a two-screen installation developed to explore the nature in which trust and suspicion is confronted when empathy is being established within a context of polarisation. Mirror is conceptualised as a series of two-screen works considering polarised perspectives, drawing alternatively on assumption and objectivity; this project is designed to explore the common human characteristics that could provide a stronger empathetic bridge between strangers than their contexts, roles and attire might suggest. Portraits of individuals are constructed in a manner that they transcend or challenge place, prejudice, projection, assumption and fear of the other – while at the same time providing insight into nuanced internal negotiations and narratives. At a time when the extraordinary polarisation of half a century of war, appears to be coming to a close, we propose the development of a new research-based artwork modestly considering the enormous challenges of reconciliation and forgiveness. The project Mirror IV : Stranger is a collaboration between the UK- based visual artist, David Cotterrell and Sri-Lankan screen-writer, Ruwanthie de Chickera. It is a contemplative study of the process and obstacles to the normalisation of individual interaction within a context of deep historical division.

    Muted Arms, Touched Nature is a video art piece that builds on the media memories of the Colombian armed conflict that are produced in the battlefield and are archived on the YouTube platform. Remixing short segments from non- professional digital videos recorded by soldiers at the frontlines, this piece offers a reflection on how the natural landscape has been witnessed from the fighters’ point of view. By exalting the visual imagery of Colombian biodiversity that has been captured in these audiovisual records of war, I intend to reflect on the persistence of nature. Despite being disrupted, outraged, and touched by the armed conflict, the natural landscape of Colombia persists. A lyrical soundtrack (a public domain record of Bach's Air Suite in No.3 in D major) accompanies the slow motion of the visuals and provides a sentimental tone to the piece.

    August 2016. While attempting to photograph the timeless sight of Milky Way on a calm seashore, planes zips across the sky, lights of the cars travels between bays in distance, and ships cross the horizon. The life of a touristic town is in its height. Further deep, invisible to eye and the camera, echoes a war that ricochets all the way to these shores of Aegean and Mediterranean seas where every day refugees take the next steps of their journeys, risking their lives for a hope of a safer home. “What Lies Beneath the Stars” is, more than anything, about the irony of an artist’s search for beauty and wonder, in a geography of uneasy contrasts.

    When we wave at machines, do they also wave back? "All Hands" is a software assemblage that explores this question, arranging a human hand so that it co- emerges on screen with a machinic conspirator it must trace to activate a shifting topology of ambient sound and light. The participant sits in front of a screen showing a minimal real time environment: a fractionally shimmering curtain of light. As they raise their hands above the Leap Motion controller, a multitude of virtual hands appear on the screen, and the participant needs to use a meshwork of sensory skills ( embodied reflexes, micromovements, vision, and proprioception) to track and disentangle.

    The Chthulu and The Final Girl is an animation about gender and power in horror films. The piece troubles the genres’ normalization of hierarchies of physical and psychological dominance. Rebellion against normative morality, particularly by women, is violently punished in horror, yet it is the final girl who emerges alive and strong at the end. Alongside the cinematic, Donna Haraway's writing also influenced the animation, particularly Haraway’s détournement of the cyborg and the cthulhu. Concerned that the name Anthropocene is ineffective, Haraway prefers the term Capitalocene, which commences with early global markets and trade routed. And as a more expansive and livable term, she posits the Chthulucene. With the later she is overturning, or defiantly misusing, Lovecraft's racists and misogynistic cthulhu to theorize a giant and powerful feminist science and science fiction to re-think, re-tell, re-world our possible future.

    “I Love You, Keep Going” was born while I was bicycling in a heavy traffic jam in California. I wondered if it might be possible to invoke a story about nature, and my country’s addiction to oil, in such a way that an audience could feel these opposing forces in their bodies rather than simply their minds. Working with Iranian film editor Arya Ghavamian, whose nation’s history is entwined with oil, I will create three looping films which invite the visitors to mount bicycles and “change the story.” In Chapter One, where nobody bikes, we see the oil business winning the heart of the world. In Chapter Two, where one person enters the future alone, the fear of death and destruction become activated. In Chapter Three, where multiple cyclists join forces, transcendence and harmony with nature become possible. Viewers may passively watch the world’s destruction, or become part of the story and change the future in a positive way.

    “Primordial” is a single-channel video which consists of 750 unique microscopic canvases. Each canvas was hand-painted with multitudes of acrylic dyes and then photographed under the microscope. The work is specifically designed to be experienced in an endless loop. In accordance with its title, “Primordial,” takes on the concepts of “existing” and “persisting” of the universe in general and all matter and life in particular prior to temporality. The sequential viewing facilitates the viewer to experience a sensation akin to an affective altered state of consciousness by using rapidly evolving and perpetually forming visual and auditory stimuli. “Primordial” uses the digitally-altered sound of the Vela Pulsar; a highly-magnetized neutron star that emits regular pulses of radio waves and other electromagnetic radiation with a period of 89 milliseconds. The sound design in the video corresponds to the radio-waves emitted by this particular Pulsar.

    TEMAS (tr. contact, touch) is a stochastic audiovisual performance. The software underlying the performance integrates the artist into a generative system as a module of analysis. The software interface affords control over probability distributions instead of immediate parameters. Sound acts as a seed; the artist listens, and in return, performs probabilities. All sounds and images are generated in real time. The graphics, which react to sounds, guide the viewers through the diegetic layers of the performance; the unfolding visual narrative highlights the contrasts between the alternating tools of the performance (i.e. a laptop and a modular synthesizer). The software design of Temas draws inspiration from Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Kontakte, Morton Subotnick’s Touch, and Curtis Roads’ Touche pas. Temas, which generates purely abstract sounds and imagery, stochastically traverses the fine line between the organic and the synthesized, forming contacts with representationality.

    SYNTHCITY

    SYNTHCITY is a generative audiovisual installation which constantly creates unrealistic versions of a city by algorithmically blending its real landscapes, objects, sounds and people. In doing so, this work aims to highlight our acculturation to modern means of industrialization, and its often-ignored impact on social and civic systems. In Soundscape theory, lo-fi acoustic environments are those that exhibit an overpopulation of sonic elements. A lo-fi soundscape is often the mark of an industrialized urban environment; the acoustic affordances of such an environment are deemed disproportionate to human physiology, and can be amplified to hazardous levels. SYNTHCITY explores the relationship between hi-fi and and lo-fi acoustic environments from a multimodal perspective: as it computationally blends organic and inorganic sound-producing objects, and resonant spaces of a city, it does so in both the auditory and the visual domains. The result is an uncanny mixture of mundane objects that are out of proportion and out of place. By contrasting the thresholds of audiovisual stimulation in various parts of a city, it realigns the viewer’s perspective on what tends to be regarded as natural or comfortable in everyday environments.

    A continuous video of moving satellite imagery captured along the 49th parallel, the Canada/US border, "parallel" mobilizes imagery from Google Earth's historical database to expose discrepancies in the archived image of the planet. As one follows the pan, anomalies in the image become apparent: digital artifacts having to do with when a given area came under the eye of a satellite, and at what resolution. As the virtual camera moves, the physical border appears, disappears, is replaced and displaced by both geographical features and media artifacts. Blurrings, double exposures, seams between satellite tiles, images from different seasons or times, all create a parallel landscape with its own boundaries, topography, areas of density and intensity. Digital and material realms mingle, charged with the politics of two nations and the legacy of colonial epistemology. Soundtrack comprises found audio, and ambient sound from ISS and an MQ-9 Reaper drone.  "parallel" is an evolving, frequently updated project.

    We have arguably entered the Anthropocene epoch, a new geologic era defined by unprecedented manmade disturbances over earth’s ecologies and cultural heritages. In this era, the ecological integrity as well as traditional cultures and heritage of bucolic landscapes in the emerging economies like India are endangered due to governmental pressure for rapid growth in technological infrastructure and industrial development. In this context, multi-channel sound composition Decomposing Landscape as part of a sound and video installation is developed through extensive field recordings made at specific sites now considered Special Economic Zones, situated in the eastern part of India. The work creates a discursive auditory situation to facilitate a contemplative observation of such transitive landscapes. The work intends to delineate transition of India from a pastoral past gearing fast toward the contemporary urban, rendered within a mode of questioning. The large-scale media art project aims to practice digital technology to mediate engendered sites in contemporary art and helps disseminate cultural values to trigger public awareness. The project not only intends to foster the capacity to preserve heritage, but also records cultural transformation of conflict- ridden sites and landscapes for public intervention and artistic transformation to address the possibility of achieving reconciliation and peace.

    PIXELDUST

    Jesse Drew, Glenda Drew and Spencer Mathews / USA
    University of California at Davis
    www.jessedrew.com

    In a world increasingly threatened by erosion of civil rights, environmental destruction and economic disparity, PIXELDUST presents a visual/aural display of hope, faith and resoluteness through short autobiographical texts and visual portraits from inspirational figures in world history. Participants approach a shrine/altar that triggers a visual dust storm of pixels that rise from the bottom of the screen. While the ‘pixeldust’ swirls, an autobiographical statement is heard/displayed from an unknown person, taken from a position of hopelessness, despair or fear expressed in that person’s life. As the voice/text ends, the pixels assemble and reveal the person’s identity, easily recognizable figures who clearly overcame their weaknesses and made substantial contributions to our world. PIXELDUST is designed to be an “engine” built to accept public contributions of inspirational figures from all points of the world. It is designed to be a public display resource to console and give hope to people around the world who fight for peace and social justice.

    Wake Vortex

    dejangrba.dyndns.org

    Wake Vortex is an ongoing series of generative videos and images built around the idea that digital raster image can be treated as a three-dimensional object and viewed not just frontally but also from any other side. This process can be understood as line-scanning of digital imagery. Viewed orthogonally from the side, the image is perceived as a one-pixel wide line, while orthogonal scanning of a stacked set of video frames creates a new set of images which can be animated, and certain combinations of source materials and scanning sides/directions produce interesting results. Wake Vortex employs (re)creativity with orthogonal scanning of the artworks and cultural artefacts which were themselves developed through various modes of innovative combinatorics. Dimensional collapse in orthogonal scanning reveals new formal values and facilitates layered observation. While visually estranged, the generated imagery retains the suggestiveness of the original so the viewer intuitively regards it analytically. In aviation and seamanship, wake vortex is often a dangerous, unpredictable turbulent trail generated by the craft’s motion. In this project, it points to the complexity of the imperceptible or unregistered default values of an artwork or cultural artefact, to their unforeseen expressive, cognitive, ethical and political consequences.

    Scars&Borders is an ongoing archive of images shot by the artist investigating crises locations at geographical borders from the imaginary yet real perspective metaphorically located at the buffering areas between two confining countries - where technically and symbolically there’s no proper jurisdiction of a country’s law over another. The political danger of this zone is underlined by their prison-state status and by the strategies of distraction enabled on site via presence of duty frees and/ or touristic attractions, both responsible for anesthetizing the subversive strength of those spaces. Those borders are selected on the basis of their sociopolitical and aesthetics potential in regards of disclosing narratives in the frame of challenging political situations, and studied from the point of view of an aesthetic of crises. Thus, the praxis of the artistic research looks at borders not anymore as frozen scars but rather as virtual lines of flights, optimal for the beginning of a process of deterritorialization from a certain type of bio-political control, for example the one on the notion of human movement. Scars&Borders generates a series of site-specific works with the means of photography, filmmaking and performances at borders’ areas around the globe.

    Scnery:Valugan is based on a video installation which attempts to bring the user into various places. My first visit to the Valugan beach is 30 years after my father’s first visit to the island and he narrated the changes the island is going through. Rocks were being picked off and sold as the popularity of both the beach and island is growing. I believe there is beauty in the rocks and the sound preserves its presence in time. Instead of a parallel projection of the scenery. I have decided to project the images on the floor to give emphasis on the rocks on the shore as the images are of such. By silencing out the noise of the urban and focusing on the slow crash of the waves and distant chatter of the residents of the island. I want to bring you to the beach.

It invites to the immersion of the viewer in environtments which mutate digitally, but where evolutive processes and transformations are modeled from reality fragments. Contruction of objects are not just developed with 3D tools as visual contruction, it is also generated thereafter parameters of programation which reconstruct fiction and imagination in an aleatory way.

    The mystery of the Nazca lines and the lines called "Ceques" at the Bolivian Plateua, lead us to explore different conceptual and aesthetical speculations of this technology lost in time. The Quechua concept of "Pacha," (Time and Space) was one of the worldviews that shaped this majestic artwork and it was created by lost civilizations before the indigenous communities that inhabit currently these areas. We had the opportunity to walk throughout several of these lines at the Sajama national park in Bolivia; collecting audiovisual material meanwhile commuting with the indigenous inhabitants of the area, who told us several fantastic stories hidden in these pilgrimage routes which connect several worlds. According to the inhabitants the civilization who built the lines, disappeared the day when the sun raised. These perfectly straight pathways can only be seen from satellites. Later on the lines were readapted by the Inca Empire to connect the entire South America. They were also related to their calendar; the movement of the stars; geomagnetisum and spiritual paths. They connected the mountains, springs and other sacred places where the gods lived and controlled the destiny of the inhabitants.

    A single image serves as the onset for a potentially continuous chain of phantasmagoric imagery. Using Google's image recognition in the search-by- image feature, the video moves through over 50,000 images from throughout the internet, crossing boundaries of professional and sociocultural utility. In reconciling these different modes of use, the search engine must swim across disciplines of visualization, evincing a semiotic coherence to parlay with that of the user. This transformation of content is depicted twofold. Firstly, in one view, a hyperactive slew images progresses over 31 minutes, exposing unexpected topological shifts in rapidly near-anonymous content. Secondly, at an alternatively precise scale, the first 2.6 seconds of the video is scrutinized with a high-speed camera while being played on an LCD screen. The brief moment is magnified over 14 minutes and 36 seconds. At this speed the transition between images becomes apparently processual, and the association of content all the more conspicuous.

    That’s how the mass behavior analysis manifest: the days, the evenings and the nights connected amongst themselves showing a whole idea of the cultural coffee landscape with common sounds full of social chaos caused by these networks where time goes fast and showing how everyday passes by, full of lights and the independent beings inside their “own world”, but dependent on a network created with an identity of masses and informal fraternity. The ceremonial and ritual behaviors are, without a doubt, important elements that contribute to producing the “us”, which is the self-representation without which the group can’t exist. We must understand how the connections between the countryside and the city caused a complete transformation of these two, affecting their environment and changing the identities that made them different from each other…they unify and begin to understand the same language, their behaviors and the chaos itself. It’s the kind of self individuality of the metropolis that has sociological bases that defend around intensifications of the common stimulus of beings which comes from subtle and continuous changes on the reception of different types of impulses to maintain, internally or externally, mechanized for the appropriation of our environment.

    Art Value

    Vygandas Simbelis / Sweden
    KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
    simbelis.com

    The project “Art Value” examines the notion of political economy and neoliberal values in the art processes, i.e. production, circulation and consumption. The economy standards and its influences to the art world and to creation in general is a key theme of the project. Critically appropriating principles of such dichotomy discourse, the artist seeks for a synthesis between those two different and opposite paradigms. The viewer of the exhibition is invited to rethink the existing connotations of those philosophical assumptions, elevating the moral and aesthetic values.  It is a speculative project questioning artwork’s reception and perception through economical principles, i.e. through rethinking the notion of the artwork as commodity. It is also a critique of one of the main characteristics of the contemporary art world – the segregation of the art world and its public escalation of the monetary values. “Art Value” is taking place through the exposition of numbers. This aesthetic turn is examining the contemporary notion of contemporary human (post-human), who radically and decisively believes in numbers. Questioning the exponentially growing trust in numbers and data, its inclusion in everyday life, abstraction and unification of everything what is around us, also through what is digitalized, coded and quantified.

    STRATA

    Vygandas Simbelis / Sweden
    KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
    simbelis.com

    The STRATA project is concerned with the limits of human senses at those edges where the boundaries dissolve. In an audiovisual film both the audio and the visuals work together – to create evocative and extreme experiences. The project explores the aesthetic properties of analog and digital transformations formed by the limitations and qualities of various forms of sensing apparatus. The result takes the form of noisy and hypnotic soundscapes. An abstract animation is directly and in real-time generated from the sound itself; audio frequencies affect the pulsation of the RGB diode. The artist plays with several parameters affecting the light (e.g., amplitude, frequency, phase, frequency modulation, and wave shape). The camera captures the pulsation of the light and generates moving colorful lines through that. In such a generative process, there is no need for any post-production technique. The STRATA film project is closely related to S T R A T I C audiovisual performance project.

    The Green Project 

    Yun Hong / USA

    In recent decades, China has had a severe environmental crisis with millions of people suffering from bad air, polluted water and vegetation degradation. Instead of finding sustainable solutions, some local governments make a “big show” of decorating landscape surfaces by using “artificial colors”, such as paint, fabric, or printed imagery to physically cover the no-longer naturally colored environments. At Laoshou Hill, thousands of square meters of mountain were painted green to hide red coal mine pits. In Beijing, the sky surprisingly became blue and clear during special “showing” days like the Olympic Games to let “guests”forget the extremely high concentration of PM2.5. In this work, I use the standardized/ industrial meadow green to highlight this “artificial color”. I call it “The Green Project”, a camouflage by the government that uses fantasy to maintain power structures. In this situation, the environment becomes an artificial landscape where citizens are forced to exist within it. The green is a portal to travel between the decayed reality and the fictionalization nature, it blurs the boundary between fantasy and reality, covers the truth with layers of deceit, which makes people’s trust in the government evaporate. The more layers of color, the “greyer” the truth becomes.

    This large scale work can be presented as a video projection or a multimedia installation composed of a photograph on a plexiglass superimposed onto a digital monitor displaying video with sound. The work incorporates unusual depth and monumental dimensions achieving a particularly emotional effect. “The word emotion comes from the latin emovere, which is historically connected with the idea of movement. An eternal movement that moves the viewer emotionally and conceptually, and that the artist observes and try to preserve with his creation. In the presence of the work, the viewer can connect with a larger emotional landscape that embraces all of us and lives without and within; because we are all part of a larger spectacle.”

I invited them to hum a few famous American melodies like “New York New York” and a few others. They recorded them in their apartments in NYC, and then sent them to me, to become part of a larger portrait of my city.”

    In A Prayer for the Dead, subjecting the body to the purifying power of water evokes ideas and feelings of renewal and cleansing. This project started as an impulse to communicate through water. It slowly took form in its attempt to portray the universal experience of release. Unexpectedly, the work mirrored rituals of which I wasn’t aware, like the Buddhist funerals, where “water is poured into a bowl placed before the monks and the dead body. As it fills and pours over the edge, the monks recite: ‘As the rains fill the rivers and overflow into the ocean, so likewise may what is given here reach the departed’.”

    Grasshopper es un video de alta definición que muestra a una pareja disfrutando tranquilamente de una tarde en la playa. Las interpretaciones del tiempo y el significado del espacio se exploran de la forma en que una realidad puede rebotar a la siguiente, al caos de las dimensiones alternativas. Los fragmentos de existencia fueron reensamblados, mostrando cronogramas incoherentes existentes dentro de un solo video digital. Se supone que el tiempo es intangible e invisible, pero sus signos son claramente visibles a nuestro alrededor. Podemos sentir el paso del tiempo cuando sentimos el viento soplando; podemos ver el tiempo fluyendo a través de las olas del océano, y el paso del tiempo está encarnado por nuestras huellas en la arena - trazando las múltiples trayectorias de nuestras actividades frenéticas. En este nuevo mundo digital, la idea clásica de continuidad se abandona a favor de saltos y desviaciones de la linealidad: capas múltiples están ocultas dentro de las vistas más mundanas y diferentes líneas de tiempo se entrecruzan de maneras impredecibles.

    Can media art, now deeply influenced by the diffusion and power of emerging technologies, help us feel again in a deep, spiritual way? Can emerging media arts help us rediscover a long lost sense of connection with nature? Could that be a key factor in the effort of re-balancing our sociopolitical global situation? In the face of planetary-scale computation and digital realities spinning out of control I look for a renewed sense of peace and harmony. People today are losing the ability to focus and contemplate, submerged by a constant flux of signals, images and sounds. Will media art necessarily contribute to this trend or can it help us rediscover ourselves? I’ve always been looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary. I started my career as a fine art photographer, however, in the last five years, my work has been deeply influenced by both emerging technologies and by the new technical and conceptual possibilities offered by them. My latest works are suspended between Henri Cartier-Bresson’s idea that to photograph is to hold one’s breath with all faculties converged in an effort to capture fleeting reality, and the belief that flowing processes that transcend reality cannot be entirely captured by static images. My goal is to capture the natural world, illustrating my motivations and emotions, looking for the precise moment when mastering a composite moving image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

    Ripple Effect

    Anastasia Tyurina / Australia

    Scientific photography aims to record and illustrate data and experiments that differ according to specific disciplines. Although scientific photography can be considered non-aesthetic, since its main purpose is not to convey beauty but rather accurate information, its ability to record material in addition to that which is merely informative allows it to also serve expressive, subjective, and aesthetic purposes. In my project, I use scientific photography to achieve an objective (scientific) resemblance of individual water drops to their subject, but the resulting images are highly selective in what they show and how. I try to create „expressive portraits” of water drops. My artistic intervention of a scientific process through experimenting with the SEM is a way to find what potentially different things my images can say about water to a viewer. Transforming the micro world to a macro level, I play with the meaning of presented images. My images and digital installations evoke an interest in that water composition is shown as being beautiful. This causes a dilemma for viewers, particularly because the gallery space is different from a laboratory.

We are each made up of photons. Photons are particles of light. Light is inspiration. Every space has an ‘anatomy’. The visualisation of sound for AXIS arrives through a music notation system synchronized to the generation of pure light - expanded points and lines. This virtual acoustic architecture creates a dialogue with the dancing figure - illuminating song cycles in a cosmic choreography of light.

    The River is Everywhere at Once

    Mark Cypher / Australia
    Murdoch University

    The Twitter, tweet refers to a point in time that takes on new form and meaning when viewed in different contexts. When seen in this way, a tweet contributes to an expanded sense of place as one that is a composite of space and time, network and process; or in Michel Serres’s terms a topology. The emergence of new topologies and their connotations in a tweet’s re-translation in new contexts is revealed in the asynchronous, overlapping and cyclical flow of our connections in different networks. The net-art work “The river is everywhere at once” references how tweets move us to a point in time that is quickly made composite, ambiguous and unanticipated through the ever-changing nature of our relations in a network.

    Resumen: Mi visión es – Inspirar-Elevar, curar a través de la naturaleza y la creatividad.
    Soy un ARTISTA. Siempre he sido un artista desde el día en que nací, aunque no siempre lo he sabido. No fue hasta que dejé la escuela, cuando estaba libre de los límites y las limitaciones del sistema educativo que descubrí el artista en mí.  Mi arte es una extensión de mí. Se extiende a todas las áreas de mi vida. Tengo una pasión por la vida, el amor y el cuidado de la tierra. Todo lo que creo tiene una razón - a veces esa razón es sólo para honrar la creatividad dentro de mí.

    Digital Coefficient (Coeficiente Digital)

    Dominique Moulon / Francia

    Habría hoy, según Norbert Hillaire convocando a Marcel Duchamp, un coeficiente digital en cada obra. Cuando esto se expresa de diferentes maneras según las prácticas plurales de un arte contemporáneo único. ¿Y cómo podría ser de otra manera, en este mundo totalmente numérico? Primero los artistas que llevan a cabo su investigación inicial a través de motores para determinar los algoritmos. Sin omitir aquellos que, desde Internet, extraen los materiales mismos de sus creaciones con en el propósito de contextualizarlos en 'white cubes'. Los objetos de nuestra co-moralidad están fortalecidos. También hay artistas de las "fuentes abiertas" de las culturas, para desviarlas e incitarnos a reconsiderar nuestras relaciones con el mundo de las máquinas.

    Nonhuman Creation: Images from the End of the World

    Hoy en día, en la era del drone media, la fotografía satelital y la CCTV, la toma de imágenes está cada vez más desacoplada de la visión humana y de la agencia. También puede, literalmente, mostrarnos el fin del mundo. La noción de "creación no humana" propuesta en esta charla ampliará la idea centrada en el hombre de hacer imágenes para abrazar las prácticas de imagen de las cuales el humano está ausente: de los ejemplos contemporáneos de alta tecnología proporcionados por cámaras de control de tráfico, fotografía espacial y Google Tierra, pasando por procesos de toma de impresiones en tiempo profundo como la fosilización.

    On Space Curves as a Substrate for Audiovisual Composition

    En esta charla, presento el uso de las curvas espaciales como una construcción fundamental para la composición audiovisual. Las curvas proporcionan un atractivo punto de partida para la síntesis audiovisual, ya que proporcionan una traducción natural entre sonido y gráficos. Los sistemas para producir curvas de arte, diseño e investigación científica datan de por lo menos el siglo XVIII y vemos construcciones similares que persisten a través de las tecnologías mecánicas, electrónicas y digitales. Las tecnologías digitales rompen con el pasado permitiendo un control preciso e interactivo de estas curvas que permite un circuito perceptivo-computacional mucho más ajustado.

    From Wetware Art to Greenness Studies

    Jens Hauser / Alemania
    University of Copenhagen

    Después de desentrañar los términos "vida" y "naturaleza", ambos términos supuestamente no tecnológicos, los conceptos de "verde" y "naturaleza" también deben estar desacoplados. Las investigaciones sobre la biomedialidad han demostrado que las formas de arte contemporáneo que emplean las biotecnologías como punto de partida, ponen de relieve - paradójicamente - tanto su "vivacidad" como su autenticidad, por un lado, y su técnica y artificialidad explícitas por el otro. Encontramos un problema similar con el tropo de la verdura culturalmente omnipresente: La vivacidad y el verdor están unidos a través de la "biofacticidad", la idea de artefactos biológicos que al mismo tiempo crecen y, de hecho, están técnicamente construidos desde el principio.

    This project goes into ITC (Instrumental Transcommunication) not due to its exoticity but because we understand this as a field where truth is difficult to be established, a field made from uncertainty and therefore questioning. Our intention is not to prove other dimension's existence but rather create a deep discussion around some materialistic goals that are probably keeping us far from creating new universes. Also, considering that ITC was a big success during the 1970's, we strongly believe in the possibility of finding people like Hilda Hist who knew the Friedrich Jürgenson EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) method but haven't shared their findings anymore. If we succeed in this search, enrolling these former practioners, it will be a beautiful bridge between old and young people that are open to dream beyond nowadays political and economic standards.

También aprende el espacio, trazando obstáculos y personas, mientras navega usando sensores de proximidad, bump y heat. ROVER es una plataforma experimental para la interacción robótica humana y se ha utilizado para realizar investigaciones sobre la respuesta afectiva del ser humano a los sonidos emotivos producidos por un agente encarnado. ROVER tiene dos modos, un modo activo en el que se mueve alrededor del espacio en busca de personas con las que interactuar y un modo pasivo donde está parado y sólo interactúa cuando se acerca. ROVER es una forma extraterrestre biológicamente incómoda que intenta aprender a comunicarse y expresar emociones.

    Data Mapping of 2016 U.S. Presidential Election Twitter Activity

    The proposed installation transforms the 2016 United States Presidential Election data into a large-scale immersive environment to provoke thought as to how social media assumes form and dominates the shaping of the future of a nation. By mapping election data into flickering lights, ticking sounds, and the exchange of fluid between IV bags, the installation recounts Twitter activates on the topic from February 2016 to the election date of November 8, 2016. It exposes the inner mechanisms of a world where true human tweets and tweets generated by Twitter Bots mutually influence each other and propagate inseparably as a combined voice. The installation allows the examination of the machine world infiltration that shifted the generative entropic propagation of social media influence on this U.S. election, and provides a physical space for contemplating the significant challenges social media post in our understanding of the social fabric and the radical transformation of the ways in which we now relate to each other.

Digital art as a new expression media, where digital image has turned, within these few decades, in the new iconographic form. It has allowed technical procedures such as Video Mapping exploration to boom and constantly evolve in diverse contexts both graphic and audiovisual, yielding relevant changes in space and image perception, technique and interactivity, therefore promoting a progressive digital culture.

    Two years of reflection and a few seconds in zero gravity were the origins of a series of artist works that have been completed at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Star City, Russia. There, on board the iconic Ilyushin 76 MDK, 9 artists and 1 scientist from Mexico were subject to an environment of weightlessness. A few seconds were enough to experience eternity, to tell a story, to break a paradigm, to liberate a molecule, to have an illusion, to experience movement without references, to create poetry out of falling bodies, to make the useless become useful and to search for the impossible embrace.

    A furniture-device is the device having a furniture appearance and physical input and output functions. The Escaping Chair is a furniture-device capable of having physical and dynamic interaction with a subject to create self-awareness toward the intent of their actions and personification of the furniture-device. The chair interacts with the bystanders by trying to move away from nearby people. By doing this, the device tries to make a person unable to sit on it, stimulating their perception toward their sitting action, while also making the person consider the Chair’s "personality".

    Anatomía para el movimiento: línea 3 is a project where you can see wire that has the characteristic of being composed of two materials (Niquel and Titanium) that react differently when they are exposed to a certain temperature. This makes that this object, called generically Muscle Wire, appears to be an object gifted with life that twists itself when stimulated with electricity as if it was a little Frankenstein. The act of observation has become scarce in this fast-paced world. In Anatomía para el movimiento, the author turns this wire in an observation subject, in the same way that the scientists comtemplate a flower, an animal, a part of the body or any natural phenomena; to then translate these observations to a medium that can make that act (the observation) to last through illustrations.

    Nam June Paik (1932-2006) exhibited a progressive music environment for audiences, Random Access (1963) in his first solo show. It allowed audiences to make their own sound collages by interacting with visual audiotapes on a white wall. The interactive approach of Random Access was mainly intertwined with his musique concrète composing experiences. This paper examines the relationship between Paik’s work and musique concrète, and articulates Paik’s contributions to making a prototype of musical interactive art. Based on the study, Diligent Operator (2016) suggests a creative musical space with Max/MSP Jitter and Arduino.

    Floating Painting explores visitors’ passive role as a portrait model in interactive art. This visualizes the process of drawing a painting over a long time just as drawing a real portrait painting. A webcam scans a visitor’s face into an 18-by- 32 pixilated image, and the LED canvas emits one color pixel of the image per three hundred milliseconds in order, then the webcam simultaneously re-photographs the LED colors on the canvas. Next, viewers can see the drawing process that illustrates the face on the wall. Unlike most interactive art projects with real-time closed-circuit video systems, in Floating Painting, visitors as passive models experience temps mort, or dead time to see their slow portraits, and to rethink their role in interactive art.

It flies on strings at variable speeds synced with the tempo and level of two songs: Long Life Chairman Mao (1966), and Yesterday (1965). But the playback music is barely heard by the audience. In May 1967, a year after the nationwide Cultural Revolution took place in China, large-scale anti- colonialist riots broke out in Hong Kong. Lots of Chinese propaganda slogans and music were broadcasted from the loudspeakers at the Bank of China Building in Central, Hong Kong. It was loud and heard everywhere in Central.

    www.danmillerart.com
    In Gradual Slip, a peristaltic pump drips water onto thermal electric cooling plates (TEC) to form mini “glaciers”. After a time of buildup the system shuts down and the plates role rapidly reverses. The plates heat up and the ice slides off onto a tray of dirt and seed. From this point the seeds grow into grass flourishing in the melt water or drying out in its absence. Here the natural element is coping with artificial stresses that are introduced by anthropomorphic forces. The natural environment has evolved into a system in equilibrium. In ecosystems there is a threshold, a limit where the system can no longer function when pushed beyond this boundary. Gradual slip acts as a model of a natural system, exploring this boundary, opening itself up for a dialogue around climate change.

    The Digital Skin Series is composed of self-portraits in which I pose “under the digital skin” of strangers I’ve crossed paths with in the past. To create this series, I first used a 3D scanner to obtain an accurate tridimensional model of my face. Then I used a camera-prototype to acquire HD portraits of strangers. Finally, I applied their portraits to my digital skull as if they were simply an additional layer. The result is a series of photographs where bidimensionality and tridimensionality collide in an intimate and unpredictable way. In the past, myths about skin were common across cultures and related to radical biological metamorphoses.

    Music on a tempered string is not part of a series of musical installations that reflect on a fundamental question:

    Is the act of listening inseparable from the musical experience? Is it essential that sound travel through the air and the sea perceived by our ears so that it can become music? In search of an answer, this composition experiences with the fact of not being audible. Using a speaker, an audio signal excites a string, allowing the sound material to manifest visually through the string. The work invites and observes a detailed discourse, conceived in a musical way, which consists of a slow and meditative process of transformation and complexity of a visible sound wave. Additionally, and taking into account the visual nature of the piece, the light is explored as a structural parameter of the composition.

    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.

Indeed, when thrown, the pendulum strikes, throughout its race, the sculpture thus producing specific rhythmics of acoustic sound corresponding to used materials.

    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.

    On XCurrencies. A Performance Project

    Klaus Spiess and Lucie Strecker / Austria-Germany
    Medical University Vienna
    The aim of our research is to develop artworks that are informationally ‘grown’ for the art-market to become part of an ecological economics. In our performance/installation 'Hare’s Blood +' we designed a gene to allow the audience to speculate on artworks that incorporate animal relics in the light of a counter-economy as envisioned by Joseph Beuys. We opened one of the multiples in which Beuys had shrink- wrapped hare’s blood. We then isolated the catalase gene from the blood which protects against aging and spliced it into living yeast cells. We then programmed an interface able to activate the synthetic gene. The transgenic Beuysian creature was then put up for auction to act as an ‘eco-political agent,’ whose life would now be governed by the commercial interests of the auction attendees. We currently assign economic systems to cellular processes with expanded xDNA alphabet. We use systems biology to program logic operations interfacing between the living artwork and the art consumers. Artworks thus become inalienable objects between artists and consumers who both are in a state of reciprocal dependence that establishes a qualitative relationship between the three transactors.

    Using old and recycled technologies side by side with new ones, RUIDO will born as the story of a city, in this case Medellin… some old photos, handcrafted projectors and the a lot of NOISE around us, around you, around everybody. CICLUX will make a live cinema performance with eighteen people moving around, improvising, building a film brick by brick; the piece will be unique and the act can be a audiovisual experience full of movement mixed with the environment. We design our own software and hardware to bring this realtime film always new to you. In our cities we are all surrounded by RUIDO (noise), and we will show using old and new technologies how this RUIDO has become an stellar character in our daily show. We will video map using a lot of deferents technologies creating a live cinema act that will show to the public the story of every city… We have made our own projectors, our own software and the piece will be made brick by brick by the hand of eighteen people just in front of your eyes.

    En la mayoría de los sistemas de gobernanza, las políticas públicas buscan impulsar la sectorización para medir el crecimiento del país. El éxito de los planes estratégicos de los gobiernos se encuentra determinado por la estratificación en sectores productivos sesgados que se alejan de una concepción holística de la experiencia humana. La tendencia a generar acciones de exclusión y selección privilegiada a partir de una definición sectorial impuesta, crea espacios de opacidad que impiden la emergencia de experiencias que propongan nuevas lógicas de organización desde la combinación insospechada de lo transdiciplinar. El diseño estratégico emerge en las instituciones para, desde el uso de nuevas tecnologías y el nuevo valor de la publicidad, hacer emerger una experimentación que aporta a la superación de brechas como la desconfianza a las instituciones. La investigación aborda dos ejercicios de co-diseño, transdiciplinariedad y cultura digital, enfrentado por un grupo transdiciplinar de creativos de la Universidad de Playa Ancha en Valparaíso, Chile. Creando una analogía al viaje de Alicia a través del Espejo de Lewis Carroll, se aborda el contacto con la disfuncionalidad de los sistemas impuestos por jerarquías, incapaces de flexibilizar la estructura frente al movimiento y las necesidades de la transversalidad.

    Leviathan

    Andamio
    www.andamio.in
    Leviathan is an interactive musical system still under development and experimentation that links musical and visual creation resulting in a live electronics piece for Paetzold recorder with live visuals. Leviathan attends performance interactivity but also the historically shaped relationships between the agents involved: composers, performers and computer. The specific indications for Leviathan are a series of indications directly related to the supercollider code control routines. The indications suggest to the performer many actions to change between fixed and variable states interacting with the live electronics. This project works with two elements: real time and fixed time, exploring de differences and similarities between them through three dimensions: technical, musical and conceptual. From a technical point of view, this project is working with a system called “Machine listening”, so the piece can generate itself taking as inputs the sound events from the Paetzold recorder. The same happens with the visuals, there is a video generated in real time, which is mixed and processed with many different effects constructing a very special audiovisual context.

Creemos que un diálogo es una oportunidad para superar esta situación que lleva tantos años. Para reducir la división, proponemos un espacio interdisciplinario que reúne a artistas sonoros de diversos orígenes académicos, instrumentistas, improvisadores y compositores. Además de aquellos que entran en los campos de programación de software, sistemas interactivos, detección y gestión de bases de datos. Proponemos un proyecto que articule un taller y una presentación artística. De esta manera, haremos puentes entre diversos tipos de conocimiento y formas de realizar el arte sonoro para ser interdisciplinario, interactivo e inclusivo.

    ‘Whose Weather is it Anyway’ is part of a series of interventions that seeks to decipher, expose and contrast informational patterns that exist in natural ecosystems and that of man-made informational representations of command, control and dissemination mediated by its infrastructural aspects. Amidst narratives and decisions surrounding recreational tourism, festivities, food, livelihood, calamities and stock prices to which weather conditions are central, lies the colonization of local and global weather information into an intellectual property regime that often makes weather reporting and predictions through opaque informational conglomerates that fuel climate change debates and environmental policy. This project explores the interplay between ‘the climate of economies’ & ‘the economies of climate’ in the age of networked Big Data, critically examining these interfaces while engaging the audience using emerging methods in data sonification and networked media art practices.

    This is a concert (or an installation) focusing on recovering and make known part of the history of electroacoustic music from Latin American. The political and economic instability in many Latin American countries have been deeply affecting the life of its inhabitants for decades. Support for artistic activities has usually been postponed to solve urgent social problems. In spite of that, the development in the region of the electronic arts in general and the electroacoustic music in particular, is really astounding.

The basic structure for each title is made by up to twelve different sound samples from a generated sine waveform. Built on this basis, these arrangements reference and illustrate especially over time the complexity and increasing compression of the original shape. Following the serial character of the composition concept, the titles were published consecutively as EPs.

    The Harmonic Cicada is a soundscape that shows the transformation of the natural territory in the Coffee Cultural Landscape area (some Risaralda and Quindío municipalities) from the sonorous intervention of the artist when simulating with his voice the sounds produced by the cicadas with their abdomen and wings (insects from the Cicadidae family). The interaction between the answer of the actual cicadas and of the local fauna to the author’s sounds, appoints to the passage of the topographic territory to the symbolic one from the audible language, providing a new interpretation which ascribes inherent characteristics of the animal evolution to the mutual experience.

    Zeynep Ozcan / Turkey

    As if I didn’t is a hyper-real soundscape of a dream. Composed of field recordings, it tells a story of an individual’s struggle with waking up, as she tries to find her way through a synthetic environment of abstract and real objects. The piece starts with a gloomy atmosphere that includes very few representational sounds. But as the piece moves forward, a balance between concrete and abstract sounds emerge to signal the individuals “ascent” to consciousness, This consciousness, however, swings back and forth between reality and a dream. The final gesture blows the whistle on the narrative of the piece.

    Concerning the circumference of a circle the beginning and the end are common. Herakleitos of Ephesos Fragments 8 and 103. Une rencontre is intended as a “virtuoso” piece where short vocal samples are deeply processed together with acoustic instruments samples and synthesized elements in order to achieve or at least tending toward a total fusion of these elements. It is not just a mixing work, but instead it is the fusion of more sound objects in one, mainly through convolution algorithms. In this way I especially researched for a spectral merging of voice and acoustic or electronic instruments.

Within the field of architecture, the contemporary digital discourse has gained a significant level of maturity over the past 30 years. Computers have been absorbed, adapted, modified and evolved into a robust infrastructure that is changing the landscape of design conception, development, simulation, engineering, management, communication, construction and of planning the life-cycle of a building. It is within this context that this workshop has been developed. The scope includes an introduction to; modeling with Grasshopper in Rhino, digital fabrication processes, and interaction with Arduino. The course is oriented for participants who are new to these technologies. This day long workshop should help each student obtain fundamentals in parametric modeling and interactivity.

We aim to turn city streets into food forests, and unravel civilization one branch at a time. For ISEA 2017, we demonstrate how to graft urban fruit trees in the Recinto district of Manizales. The Guerrilla Grafters teach participants how to use their internet tools and different kinds of tagging — from graffiti to electronics to attach to branches (disseminating information about the graft to humans and bees), and offer take-home grafting kits. We provoke a discussion on how specific cultivation practices can resist capitalist and colonial regimes of power. Here, conflicts between a variety of fruit eaters might be recast as something to be embraced, and not positioned as the opposite to peace. We invite messy, rebellious solutions to the ways information can be shared for the purposes of expanding the urban commons in ways that simultaneously collapse binaries between public and private, nature and culture.

    Although transdisciplinary collaboration is associated with efficiency and efficacy to solve professional and academic challenges, untrained teams may underperform because of collective cognitive limitations such as less ideation power, planning fallacies, or overvalue of shared beliefs. Successful transdisciplinary collaborations require appropriate practices and didactics. In this workshop the organizers will present a draft of best practices and didactics for teamwork and will ask participants to contribute to critique, extend and recommend from this draft. The expected outcome is a refined draft document of best practices and didactics for teamwork. The organizers will develop further and publish this document along with an annotated bibliography in the topic. We will use co-design methods to design the workshop with the participants. Activities include teamwork in a challenge, socialization, and debate of best practices.

    Over recent years, the way we produce, teach and research new media has dramatically changed. The interactive non-fiction narratives have transformed the processes of producing, distributing and showing documentaries, and especially the processes involved in how the viewer relates to the text. One of these new media forms of narrative expression is “interactive documentary”. As a new media object, interactive documentary challenges traditional methods of study and dissemination. An interactive documentary is a kind of documentary that empowers the viewers by allowing them to take decisions that affect the narrative.

    Domains, publics and access is an ongoing research in media archaeology of the present. The core of the research is a wiki where everybody can collaborate with cataloguing, preserving and documenting projects that offer access for the general public to the domains of art, culture, science, economics, politics and technology. The collection brings together projects that have emerged in different countries from the second half of the 20th century to the present day related to open access, open content, open government, open science, open design, open education, open spectrum, citizen journalism, citizen science, collaborative economy, commons, co-ops, crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, cryptocurrencies, DIY, free software, free culture, community currencies, solidarity economy, grassroots media, p2p, piracy, tactical media, etc. The main goal is to preserve the memory of projects that appear and disappear day by day in different countries using the online tools such as Wayback Machine and MediaWiki. The reason for this is that historically the limits of access have never been stable and will continue to change but we are losing the traces of the present for future generations without even noticing it.

We will demonstrate the use of different biosensors and discuss the creative methods used in our work at Emovere project, which focuses on developing interactive dance performances that utilize biosignals to amplify, understand and connect with the internal functions of the human body. We use physiological signals such as electromyography (EMG), electrocardiography (ECG) and electrodermal activity (EDA) as materials that access an intimate and – usually – inaccessible biological dimension that is in constant change, affected by external and internal stimuli.

    The workshop, Projected Simulations of Being and Belonging, invites interdisciplinary artists and researchers to collaborate on a series of video projections to be displayed on the windows and facades of a building in La Universidad de Caldas and/or the city of Manizales. During this workshop, experiments with digital media will explore experiences of dislocation. Participants will combine fictional and personal narratives of belonging or displacement in order to construct digital visions of peace. Stemming from an exploration of states of dislocation and technical video/graphic experimentation, this workshop will result in the creation of outdoor projections in a public space. This workshop is about generating social collaboration between participants in order to work towards conflict resolutions between heritage surfaces and subjective narratives, past histories and illusions of the future, and finally, effects of war and visions of peace. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with video camera setups, multiple projections on buildings, video mapping and motion graphic tools. The use of digital media presents the potential to simulate a state of disembodiment (elasticity, alteration, translation) for viewers and participants. Framing a public context with video projections allows for the simultaneous activation and archival of a cultural site.

    Hyper-listening: Praxis

    Budhaditya Chattopadhyay / India
    Leiden University
    http://budhaditya.org/

    Contemporary world is strained with intensified conflicts between nations, and within various sects and segments of peoples. The future human societies need to learn how to resolve conflict of interests, values and beliefs. Acceptance and tolerance are essential for the humanity to navigate the challenging times ahead, which is marked by scarcity of natural resources and an unprecedented human-made decay in the environments, leading to possible anthropocenic calamities. It is my assumption that the root of all conflicts is essentially embedded in a lack of ability to listen carefully to the other. As philosopher Gemma Corradi Fiumara suggests, a propensity to listen to the others, without making immediate judgments, may potentially lead to bridge the troubled water of difference. My proposal is to employ an inclusive, mindful and contemplative listening practice coined “hyper-listening” as a way to approach conflict resolution.

    http://lynneheller.com

    The Game of Dobble Debate: Play, Difference, and Coexistence is a research-creation project that investigates learning through design iteration, humor and play in the form of a card game, in order to encourage discussions about difference. Differing abilities are traditionally designated as disabilities but they could also be extraordinary ability, such as synesthesia. In the last decade, the role of game as a catalyst became foregrounded in various fields particularly in education and healthcare. This workshop aims to elucidate the difference and difficulties that is elicited through using play and humor rather than traditional play strategies. The Dobble Debate concept and practice was developed at OCAD University in Toronto.

    Paisajes Reactivos

    Hicham Berrada / Francia
    Año Colombia-Francia

    Un reactivo es una sustancia que produce una reacción química en el momento en que interactúa con otra. El resultado es un producto de características y propiedades diferentes. Los reactivos son la base para muchas actividades relacionadas con ciencias aplicadas y, en muchas ocasiones, se usan para detectar o separar elementos determinados. Se clasifican según su pureza o su uso específico: reactivos para análisis que son de menor pureza, purísimos y especiales utilizados para técnicas de análisis. Hicham Berrada ha trasladado su uso al campo del arte, desplazándolo desde la ciencia y la tecnología a una esfera visual, en donde la experimentación se convierte en el centro de la obra, desprovista de hipótesis a verificar o de sustancias que develar. El conocimiento científico que Berrada aplica en sus experimentos visuales está atado de manera natural a su práctica artística, de la misma manera en que un pintor está involucrado con soportes, pigmentos y aglutinantes.

    Paper
    johnsonbridget.d@gmail.com, akapur@calarts.edu

     This paper describes compositional approaches to working with the new speaker.motion mechatronic loudspeaker system. The spatial affordances that come with the new loudspeaker system require new compositional ideas to explore the dynamic use of spatial attributes in electronic music. The speaker.motion system is first introduced and the communication protocols that composer use to control the system are discussed. The paper then continues with two case studies describing site-specific compositions that have been developed for the speaker.motion system each of which uses the spatial affordances of the system at the fore-front of their creative output. In assessing the compositional strategies of the system the paper also includes discussion provided by other composers who have utilized the speaker.motion system and their thoughts on the new ways it affords spatial performance and composition approaches.

    The paper then concludes with the future directions of both the system and the development of compositions for it.

Providing a brief history of FLOSS, this paper presents a hypothetical situation, whereby elements of FLOSS are applied to reimaging institutional change within the context of a contemporary arts venue and organisation. Framed as an artistic intervention, the art institutions structure and its existing forms are considered as the living, materiality of the practice.

    In terms of sense terminology, it is possible to make use of Digital Technology to expand and modify the perception of humans’ environment. The approach to design Cybernetic Extensions to expand the senses of the Human Body is being analyzed throughout this article. Under the debates on the dialectical interaction between technology-body, species-environment, creation-biocreation and human-bonding, the concept of Prosthesis presented by Tomás Maldonado is proposed as the starting point for the Cybernetic Organs design. It is predicted that these Smart Prosthesis will be designed by using 3D printers, and the patient's own cells, which will be created in Fab Labs laboratories. It will go from designing objects to designing the Human Body as an object.

    The present work looks into the specificity of the artist's palette with new media, focusing the analysis on the association between bits and atoms within the artistic field. The concepts of materiality, immateriality and neomateriality are examined to describe the particular features assumed by the dichotomy tangible/intangible in Art with New Media. Through the analysis of a corpus of works, we present a set of possibilities, issues and questions from our times, examined in context under the light of artistic movements from the 20th century like Conceptual Art and Pop Art.

    Finally, we explore the role of computer code—and the datum—in the expansion of the expressive palette.

    idMirror is an interactive installation which was previously demonstrated at Ars Electronica 2015 and at the ACM CHI 2016. In this paper we describe the idMirror installation from four viewpoints: Conceptual (introduction), development (section 2), technical (section 3) and the collected data analysis (section 4). The paper also presents our study of the idMirror installation participants’ emotional reactions on the idMirror installation. Artists can certainly play a role in educating the public in the sense of encourage critical thinking about the access and use of their data. Big data that includes visual social media, is a new artistic form that has recently become popular. The idMirror project can serve as an example of how we can use social media data to create aesthetic representations and experiences. This paper elaborates upon our earlier work, published as an extended abstract as part of the ACM CHI 2016 proceedings [1].

    Proclaimed by UNESCO in 2010 as Cultural Heritage of Hu-manity, The Coffee Cultural Landscape is a reference framework that defines a region of Colombia from an economic activity that has shaped it culturally. This spatial reference unit suggests new strategies and tools for the knowledge and appropriation of this heritage. Therefore, the sound dimension as a fundamental ex-pression of the identity of the regions is an essential element in the conformation of a territory. This article presents the theoreti-cal framework, methodology, and results of a four-year laboratory with the communities of the Coffee Cultural Landscape, which had as the main objective to positively influence the quality of life of the communities through artistic and cultural practices from its sound dimension.

    Fluid Processor Design for Ecological Computing - a new techno-ecological computing paradigm for sustainability

    Stahl Stenslie / Denmark
    Aalborg University 
    Paper
    stenslie@gmail.com
    This paper proposes ways of designing processor like devices operating with nothing else than natural flow of water to execute basic physical computing. Such types of fluid processors carry the potential to form the fundament of future fluid computing devices allowing for complex forms of ecological computing integrated directly into our environment. The proposed design works on natural principles of physics, uses no electricity at all, lasts almost forever and can literally be thrown around. That might sound like a radical, game- as well as life changing form of computing. And it will be. If we up-engineer the many and proven designs of old mechanical, analogue and physical ways of doing computing. So, what is the solution? Future and emerging computers will be carved out of and into stone. Their ornamental design will be more than environmental aesthetics, it will enable physical principles known from fluid and liquid dynamics to interface and interact with our world in multiple and –for now- speculative ways.

Contemporary practices like network music become also more accessible thanks to the advance of the possible communication protocols and device robustness; in less than 40 years if we count from those experiments with low level assembler for hacking a chip and serial protocol for its communication(Gresham-Lancaster, 1998) to interfacing a couple of raspberry pi’s through OSC protocol.

    Urban Mesh: Exploring Data, Biological Processes and Immersion in the Salmon People

    Paper

    Information systems are continually recontextualizing data, migration patterns, biological components and processes, between life and code. As Geographer Eugene Thacker states, these systems can be scientific, or many things, with lasting effects that are cultural, social, and political. As these systems evolve and grow, so to do the artworks created in the afterglow, becoming vital reflections of our contemporary algorithmically soaked culture. This paper examines these ideas alongside the Salmon People, a video and sound installation thematically concerned with the shared dark ecologies of nonhuman and human animals. The large format projections present a triptych of migrating sockeye salmon across urban landscapes. The prolific artwork purposefully utilizes scale, and multi layered visual fields, to push audiences to consider our shared ecologies. Like information flowing through high tech super highways, sockeye salmon deftly negotiate seen and unseen geographies, technologies, politics, and cultures. In order to understand the artworks content, sequences and layout, as well as the logic of the shot selections, we conducted a close reading analysis of the installation. We suggest that the work is generative and claim that the projections are made up of 9 videos playing concurrently in 3 large vertical panels. This paper examines these ideas, asking the questions: What role does the screen play in the design of this artwork? What are the types of audience immersion and interaction? Finally, we address the work on three levels: the structural, the narrative, and the immersive. The structural level identifies the key frames, and any overlapping frames. The narrative level investigates the 3 vertical panels in relation to story parameters such as plot and storyworld. The immersive level considers how the audience oscillates between a heightened state of immediacy and hypermediation.

      Coral Reefs are filled with infinite and unique forms, variations of shape, and complex phenomena and processes. These forms and processes have inspired both scientists to document, archive and collate, and designers to reimagine these intricate ecosystems in their creative design work. In this paper, we explore how designers integrate scientific data from coral reefs, by examining two projects. Firstly, we discuss Reefs on the Edge, an interactive installation using scientific data from a marine biologist to visualize the effects of ocean warming on corals reef ecosystems. Secondly, we discuss Coral Colonies, an installation that adapts mathematical codes of coral geometries to create biomimetic coral prototypes. We conclude how design and science use visual data taken from biological processes to help raise awareness and promote biodiversity, sustainability and the survival of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR).

    Visualising the Meditating Mind: the Aesthetics of Brainwave Data

     
    Lian Loke, Caitilin de Berigny, Youngdong Kim, Claudia Núñez Pacheco and Karen Cochrane / Australia
    University of Sydney
    Paper
      Meditation is an ancient Eastern practice, which is receiving renewed popularity as a secular approach to health and well-being. Recent advances in commercial EEG sensor technology provide opportunities for visualising biological brainwave data by artists and designers, outside the fields of neuroscience and psychiatry. We chart the creative development of an aesthetic visualisation, Narcissus Brainwave that aims to provide insight into the shifting states of mind during the practice of meditation, informed by a series of user studies with meditators and non-meditators. Interestingly, assumptions we made from the interpretation of brain- wave sensor data about when a meditative state was achieved did not always resonate with how meditators understood the quality of their inner meditation experience. This may be due in part to the limitations of a single electrode EEG device. Issues also arose related to personal preferences and cultural conventions for interpreting the meaning of the Buddhist-inspired visual symbols representing our model of meditation. Our study has revealed some of the challenges of visualising the meditating mind and creating meaningful aesthetic visualisations with commercial devices.

    Université du Québec à Montréal, University of Chichester, University IUAV of Venice
    Panel

    This panel considers the new and multiple relationships of the senses emerging in contemporary creative processes and performance integrating new technologies. Arguing that such practices call for a re-evaluation and analysis of notions of performativity, corporeality and representation as well as of the terminology employed to describe them, it considers the sensory-perceptual deconstruction, reorganization and reconstruction involved when the body is "touched" by, interacts with, and "incorporates" the effects of technology. And as these new approaches are also expressed through collaborations, hybrid artistic approaches, new forms of interdisciplinarity and communities of practitioners, the panel will look at the implications of this activity for existing networks of research-creation, looking at their specificity and considering how participants in these networks exchange, interact and collaborate.

    Panel on Sonology: sonifying the conflict

    Julian Arango / Colombia
    Universidad de Caldas
    Panel
    https://sonologiacolombia.wordpress.com

    The experimental sound practices extend the acoustic referent of the conflict and produce cultural objects related to experiences of violence, displacement and social disparity. The Panel on Sonology will gather five artists-researchers whose works allow us to reflect on the role of music, sound art and sound design on communities disturbed by social inequality and violence. From differ- ent perspectives, the panelists will show personal modes of sonifying the conflict, discussing artistic experiences where experi- mental sound practices have been introduced in communities traced by social disruption: (1) Musical instrument building in the periphery, by Tomas Laurenzo (2) Acoustemology of the Armed Conflict in San Juan Nepomuceno, by Luz Eneida Ramirez (3) Mestizo Machines by Jorge Barco, (4) Sound: expression of the conflict and pedagogical tool, by Joaquín Llorca and (5) In the interstices of a memorial: A Review on Triangulation Gen- der/Sound/Technology, by Ana María Romano G. .

    Training Methods for Transdisciplinary Collaboration: Best Practices and Didactics for Team Work

    Roger Malina, G. Mauricio Mejia and Andrés F. Roldán / USA, Colombia
    University of Texas, Dallas, Universidad de Caldas
    Panel

    Collaborative work appears as a need for successful trans- disciplinary efforts and communal professional activity among individuals with different expertise. Collaboration frames activities in a scenario of mutual benefits, where each participant contributes with her work to personal and group goals. Collaboration is expected to augment individuality because participants’ peculiarities, strengths, knowledge, and skills may articulate and negotiate to achieve an integrated outcome, which could be more successful and constructive.

    Collaborative work appears as a need for successful trans- disciplinary efforts and communal professional activity among individuals with different expertise. Collaboration frames activities in a scenario of mutual benefits, where each participant contributes with her work to personal and group goals. Collaboration is expected to augment individuality because participants’ peculiarities, strengths, knowledge, and skills may articulate and negotiate to achieve an integrated outcome, which could be more successful and constructive. However, individuals have limited abilities to exploit the personal and collective benefits of collaboration.

    Subvertising tools to the patriarchal thinking in advertising. Video art, photography, artivism in feminist WAR (Women Artistic Revolution)

    Alejandra Bueno / Spain
    Universidad Nacional de Educación / Universidad Politécnica de Valencia
    Paper
    http://www.alejandrabueno.com

    This text is a conceptual and formal analysis of works of video art, photography and activism in defense of women’s rights. It contextualizes the theoretical concepts of feminism, desire, liber- ty, reality, subversion or spectacle, in the framework of art and feminist critique in order to articulate an analysis running from the XXth to the XXIst century based on the theories of thinkers like Flusser, Lacan, Barthes, Debord and, more specifically concerning women, Lagarde, Beauvoir, Butler and Amoros. The aim is to show that art has had an important role in the diverse feminisms, contributing significantly to the improvement of the number of women in art and society, and that it continues to do so, being an accessible medium for reaching the dissident sector of the population, a medium that is creative in its confrontation, a medium whose duty is to communicate history and ensure that it is justly told, a tool for struggle camouflaged under the umbrella of art.

    Curatorship and New Media: Possible Dialogues

    Priscila Arantes / Brazil
    Universidade Anhembi Morumbi
    Paper

    One of the discussions related to contemporary curatorial practices focuses upon the impact of new media and digital media in the formats and exhibition circuits. In addition to only exploring curatorships that showcase digital media art projects, what interests us in this article is to investigate how certain characteristics of media culture – such as collaborative processes and networking – are present in current curatorial practices.Examining this premise, we divided this article into two parts. In the first, we conducted a small curatorial history to show how the curatorial procedures have been adapted to the changes occurring in the field of contemporary art. In a second part, we use as a study case the curatorial projects developed by the Paço das Artes1 such as the Livro-Acervo, MaPA and Ex-Paço.

    Corporeal Cinema: Tactility and Proprioception in Participatory Art

    Raivo Kelomees / Estonia
    Estonian Academy of Arts
    Paper
    http://www.artun.ee

    In this article I analyse performances, artworks and installations in audiovisual and contemporary art which emphasise tactile and corporeal experiences. This tendency can be observed in technological art, cinema and large visual attractions. I aim to demonstrate that due to technical developments and new tools, the possibilities now exist for new aesthetic experiences in which the body’s position and its biological reactions play a decisive role.

    Universidad de los Andes, Universidad de Caldas, CEM, University Purdue
    Panel

    The Latin American Forum was a platform for trans-disciplinary and trans-cultural negotiations concretized in series of panels, workshops, roundtables, presentations, lectures, and exhibitions. The forum was operational four years in the framework ISEA: ISEA2010 in Germany, ISEA2011 in Turkey, ISEA2012 in the USA and ISEA2013 in Australia. Since the conception of the Latin American Forum, one of the goals was to propose hosting an ISEA conference in Latin America, thanks to the hard work of a group lead by Universidad de Caldas finally ISEA will be hosted, for the first time in Latin America, in Manizales, Colombia. The Latin American Forum was a complex series of venues that intended to articulate a diversity of proposals ranging from digital culture to the technological arts, from the critical production to the historical perspective, from the science to the technology fields always with the question of geographical and cultural critical perspective. Latin American Forum participants came from: Argentina, Australia, Australian Aboriginal Communities, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Germany, Mexico, Navajo Nation, Peru, Uru- guay, USA and Venezuela.

    The Aesthetic Experience of Augmented Reality Art

    Meng Qu / China
    Hiroshima University
    Paper
    http://kinghoodqu.wixsite.com/qumeng

    In the digital age, we create new technological forms and media artworks that define new relationships between the environment and us. Artists and actors are increasingly using their own mobile computing devices and AR to create artworks. When we experience an artwork in an "Augmented Space", we can consider it as an interactive event. As a result, we can treat interaction, immersion and realization as three components of the events within augmented space. In this paper, by using the dynamic event concept and through analyses of famous mobile AR artworks, we reach three major conclusions of aesthetic experiences in AR artworks: the event of real-time interaction is the aesthetic manner; the immanent event of the fuzzy boundary immersion is the aesthetic distance; and the immanent event of augmented realization is the aesthetic purpose.
