Live Stage: Malice in Sonderland [at Vienna]

Malice in Sonderland — a real time audiovisual performance reflecting the contemporary relevance of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland by Korhan Erel and Alexandra Reil :: January 19, 2010; 8:00 pm :: Museum of Applied Arts Vienna (MAK), Säulenhalle / MAK Columned Main Hall, Stubenring 5, A 1010 Vienna.

Malice in Sonderland deals with Lewis Carroll’s famous novel Alice in Wonderland (1865). In their audiovisual performance the sound composer Korhan Erel, Istanbul, and the media artist Alexandra Reill, Vienna, work with the original material of Norman Z. McLeod’s feature film Alice in Wonderland shot in 1933. With experimental digital methods they research the theme and plot of the complex fairy tale and in the framework of the MAK NITE© perform a phantasmagoric live interpretation, an improvisation composed of digital worlds and abstract sound collages.

“Aesthetic Journalism” by Alfredo Cramerotti

Aesthetic Journalism: How to Inform Without Informing by Alfredo Cramerotti: Addressing a growing area of focus in contemporary art, Aesthetic Journalism investigates why contemporary art exhibitions often consist of interviews, documentaries, and reportage. Art theorist and critic Alfredo Cramerotti traces the shift in the production of truth from the domain of the news media to that of art and aestheticism – a change that questions the very foundations of journalism and the nature of art. This volume challenges the way we understand art and journalism in contemporary culture and suggests future developments of this new relationship.

Writer, curator, artist and consultant for the creative sector, Alfredo Cramerotti works with a variety of media such as TV, radio, publishing, art exhibitions, festivals and curation. Continue reading

“Simulation as a Global Resource” by Pier Luigi Capucci

Simulation as a Global Resource by Pier Luigi Capucci, NOEMA [This paper was originally presented at the International Conference “Consciousness Reframed 10 – experiencing [design] – behaving [media]”, Munich, MHMK, University of Applied Sciences, November 19 – 21, 2009]

The idea of “simulation” is a very intriguing, multifaceted and complex issue. Words like “verisimilitude”, “emulation”, “imitation”, “copy”, “reproduction”, “clone”, “replica”… are commonly used. In our everyday life we imagine situations, events, projects and decline them to the future: we simulate possible worlds and test them in a sort of permanent “what if” which is continuously reworked and modified. This process has been methodologically formalized in the sciences, where we build models, simulations, which try to describe facts, events and phenomena. Models and simulations have a very important cognitive role in knowing and understanding the world we live in. Continue reading

HYPE: a creative coding framework > ActionScript 3

HYPE — Branden Hall & Joshua Davis — is a creative coding framework built on top of ActionScript 3. A major goal of HYPE is to allow newcomers to Flash and ActionScript to creatively play and express themselves while they are learning how to program. To get started, the user needs only the most basic knowledge of programming – variables, conditionals, loops, and functions, for example. As the user learns more about programming they can extend HYPE and thus grow their skills, while at the same time inspiring the next generation.

Now, that’s not to say HYPE is just for people who are new to programming. Instead, HYPE is for anyone, regardless of skill, who wants to play with code. Fundamentally, the point of HYPE is to make Flash fun again. We made HYPE to help bring back the playfulness that once defined our community. Continue reading
