Jeff Crouse and Real Time Art

Emerging technologies have made it possible for artists to use a wide range of live, external data sources to give their work relevance and impact. Works that use these live data sources share certain strategies, values, and influences. Not only does this type of art have much artistic potential, but it can help the Web by encouraging the development of machine-understandable, Semantic data formats. What kind of tools would give some coherence to real-time art and facilitate its creation?

Switchboard is an open-source conceptual level interface to a library of data mining tools and web services, including Google, Yahoo, Amazon, Del.icio.us, Flickr, and many more. It is written in Java and packaged for the Processing environment. Continue reading

Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [jp Yamaguchi]

Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media 5th Anniversary Program: Minimum Interface :: November 1 – February 8, 2008 :: YCAM, 7-7 Nakazono-cho, Yamaguchi-city, Japan.

This exhibition focuses on new possibilities of the “interface” as a basic component of information culture. The aim is to convey a new sensation of “fun of being connected through media” by introducing an optical, acoustic and tactile interface conceived with an art / design sort of mindset to appeal directly to physical sensation, rather than relying on ready-made design tools.

CHI 2009: Programming Reality Workshop [us Boston]

[Image: Tropisms by Neri Oxman] CHI 2009 Workshop: Programming Reality: From Transitive Materials to Organic User Interfaces :: April 4-5, 2009 :: Boston, Massachusetts, USA :: Call for Participation – Submission Deadline: October 23, 2008 :: Submissions and enquiries: programmingreality [at] media.mit.edu.

Over the past few years, a quiet revolution has been redefining our fundamental computing technologies. Flexible E-Ink and OLEDs displays, shape-changing and light-emitting materials, parametric design, e-textiles, sensor networks, and intelligent interfaces promise to spawn entirely new user experiences that will redefine our relation with technology. In one example, future flexible displays will allow us to design devices that are completely flexible, and that can curve around everyday objects or our bodies. Continue reading

Live Stage: The Jeremy Bailey Show [uk London]

The Jeremy Bailey Show :: September 19 – October 19, 2008 :: Opening and Performance: September 19; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: HTTP Gallery, Unit A2, Arena Design Centre, 71 Ashfield Road, London.

If Jeff Koons had fallen for the Microsoft Help Paperclip rather than vacuum cleaners or La Cicciolina, presumably the result would have looked a lot like The Jeremy Bailey Show. “Canadian artist Jeremy Bailey creates cutesy digital interfaces which facilitate computer-aided performances that bring art and technology, techies and technophobes into tension. Fusing an expert knowledge of software design and acclaimed performance and video art skills, Bailey asks his audience to examine their acquiescence to the GUIs (Graphic User Interfaces) that provide the face of contemporary living. More than that, he invites one and all to watch his unique brand of ‘interface-off’.” (Charlotte Frost) Continue reading

Reblogged Cyberskin, radical revealing skin

Developing the most “natural” human-machine interface has always been one of the IT industry Holy Grails. The ancestral codes that oversee our instinctual behaviors are more often than not misguided by cultural signs and related meanings expressed in the software and hardware aesthetic. Playing with these ideas, Cyberskin by Joan Healy brilliantly conveys the idea of the body as an extension of a machine. The author’s passion for the seventies performance scene is perfectly exploited in this piece. In the context of a parody of IT fairs, she hides herself inside a “machine”, so that a rectangular portion of her back can be touched and used by visitors as a touchpad. She secretly “draws” with a real touchpad, her movements tracing the patterns she feels on her back. A monitor displays the marks she makes with the touchpad in front of the user. Continue reading

Reblogged Keep in touch: a tactile-vision intimate interface

TouchKeep in Touch designed by Nima Motamedi at Simon Fraser University, Canada, is a networked fabric touchscreen designed to support and maintain intimacy for couples in long distance relationships. To achieve this she created a novel sensorial interface by combining the visual and tactile senses together. Each partner is presented with a blurred digital projection of their lover. When they touch their partner’s body, the image comes into focus revealing their features. Continue reading
