HOWTO denken ++++ Dekonstruktion und Rekonstruktion anhand von Algorithmen. +++ Material als Container menschlicher Vorstellungen und Projektionen +++ Auch immer gut ist die Versicherung der Identität durch Feindbilder. +++ Außerdem: Realität entsteht in unserer Vorstellung. Klar. +++ Aber wir stellen sie selber her und beeinflussen mit dieser Fiktion wieder die Realitäten anderer. +++ Dazu merken: Die Feedbackmagie des Surrealen existiert generell nur im Denken des Anderen. +++ Unausgeschöpfte Möglichkeiten sind eben auch Zusammenhänge die noch nicht hergestellt worden sind. +++ Jetzt ist alles im Interimszustand zum Nächsten, und(!) wartet auf seine Optimierung. +++ Imaginierte Zukunft. Was soll das sein in einer permanenten globalen Jetztzeit? +++ Systeme (wie Photoshop/3d/Internet), die die Grundlage neuer Medien sind, werden präzise untersucht und offenbaren dann wie sich unsere Welt und ihre Betrachtung durch die zunehmende Prozessierung von Informationen und Bildern verändert. Ja? +++ Alles ist konstruiert. Indem man aber bereits existierende Dinge verändert, wird das zugrundeliegende Konstrukt sichtbar. Manchmal. +++ Hinauf zur Hyperrealität. Los geht’s! +++ Entmenschlichung ist immer ein Thema. Leider. +++ Denn Eingriffe durch Algorithmen sind in der Metamoderne die Basis der Mystifizierung des vermeintlich Realen. +++ Selbstkreation vs. Spekulation +++ Die rhythmische Neuerschaffung des Es. +++ Ephemer entsteht … , wirklich ist dann wohl das, was nicht veränderbar ist. +++ So lange bis alles nur noch Platzhalter und Container für alles sein kann. +++ x +++ Es folgt die totale Verunsicherung im changierenden Realen.

Rechnender Raum by Ralf Baecker

Artist-programmer Ralf Baecker who is currently colaborating with V2 Rotterdam, has 2007 realized a work i can and will not forget, and therefore has its place in this archive-collection. Rechnender Raum (Calculating Space) is a lightweight sculpture made of sticks, strings and small weights; at the same time, it is a fully functional, logically precise neural network.

rechnender-raum-04

When the machine starts up, it tries to resolve spatial differences in its mechanical logical structure. Every attempt, however, generates new variations, capturing the machine in an infinite contemplative loop. Thanks to its strictly geometrical and intricate construction, the observer is able to track the processing logic in its entirety from any point around the machine. The visibility of the machine’s core is reinforced by the unusual distribution of its components: a nine-angled architectural body forms a torus. In contrast to the ordinary alignment of a hidden logic and an external user-facing display, here the geometric basis is turned inside out.

rechnender-raum-01

The core of the machine, with all its computational elements, is shifted outward to the surface, while the „display“ showing the results of the operations is displaced to the heart of the system. Without either depending on or requesting interaction, the machine turns away from the visitor and carries out its computations for itself alone. Continue reading…

guido segni – pics or it didnt happen & middlefinger response

today we got 2 pieces from Guido Segni.
1: “Pics or it didn’t happen”
is the rule 32 according to the Rules of the Internet originally written by the Internet group Anonymous.

It is a colloquial expression used by internet users to challenge their virtual interlocutor on a discussion forum or a social network, when his arguments require photographic proof of what he’s saying.

A BYOB to celebrate the opening of the Digital3mpire

On friday, 26.09.2014 we will do a BYOB (BRING YOUR OWN BEAMER) to celebrate the opening of the #digital3mpire – a new space for digital aesthetics and network issues in Düsseldorf. The artists participating in this event bring their own projectors and show their video works. The BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) concept has been developed by Rafaël Rozendaal 2010. The first edition of BYOB was initiated by Anne de Vries & Rafael Rozendaal in Berlin, and has since then been organized in many different cities around the world.

This show will start around 8pm (20.00 cet). Participants should come a bit earlier for doing the setup.
Please send us a short message if you would like to be part of the show. This makes organizing and planing easier for us.

Guests are of course welcome all evening … :-) !
Rich Kids Beer will be serverd.

METÆTHER GREEN

Liquid crystal layers switch red, green and blue. Come tiny bursts of light – here just for you. Improved color accuracy, the eyes hold dear, as wavelengths gloss faces in magical hues. In quaint REM-daydreams – the cloud rains through you.
