Reblogged “Body Navigation” Dance Installation and Danish Dance Theatre’s “Labyrinth”

Body Navigation,” from the Recoil Performance Group, is an interactive dance installation that was part of Danish Dance Theatre’s “Labyrinth” performance, which premiered this past May in Copenhagen:

Body Navigation is based on responsive digital media that allows for the dancers to create graphics with their movements in the stage environment around them. Based on rules and structured in a game-like manner, the installation makes way for a playful dialog between the video artist and the dancers.

-empyre- Models + Perspectives for Media Centers + Net Art Organizations

empyre.jpgLately, a number of institutions, based on more or less conventional models, seem to be focusing on fomenting art and culture created with digital, networked and portable devices. This is not a new phenomenon, but there seem to be different approaches, and a variety of unfoldings that shift away from the classic MediaLAB models, as the convergence of art, science and technology no longer seems to be dominant on a field nowadays diverse enough to range from social and educational perspectives to artistic experimentation of all kinds.

There are mixed scenarios, on this context, in which digital culture reaches places such as China and India, while mobile and wireless networks adds layers of complexity to our connected society. Continue reading

openFrameworks @ Ars: Call for Participation [at Linz]

This year, at Ars Electronica (sept 4 – 9) openFrameworks is planning to make something pretty unique. Essentially, it’s a laboratory space where a group of us will make artwork live during the course of the festival. The idea is to build a space where a dozen or so hackers, tinkerers and researchers will hang out and experiment, make stuff, create guerrilla exhibitions around the festival and document their progress and discoveries. The work that we do will come directly out suggestions from the festival audience members — and hopefully, over the 5 days, we’ll create a kind of good feedback loop between getting suggestions, making projects and exhibiting the results.

For us, we like a project like this because it can demo really well the activity of the community, and it’s a great chance to meet face to face and work closely together, since many of us are spread out in different locations. Continue reading
