Reblogged Nike Chalkbot Rips-off Streetwriter

This week Nike unveiled a cool “new” chalk-writing robot used to print messages on the road during the Tour de France bicycle race. The trouble is, the robot isn’t so new after all. The Nike Chalkbot is nearly identical to the Streetwriter we began developing ten years ago.

Since 1998, the Institute for Applied Autonomy has been inventing and building robots to protest the militarization of robotics research and to reassert the public’s ownership of public space. Among the machines we produced were GraffitiWriter, a small remote controlled robot capable of printing high-speed text graffiti on the pavement while driving, StreetWriter, a black cargo van capable of printing large text messages the width of a traffic lane while driving, and SWX a more compact trailer version of the same.

When Virtual Reality Feels Real

“Despite advances in computer graphics, few people would think virtual characters or objects are real. Yet placed in a virtual reality environment most people will interact with them as if they are really there. European researchers are finding out why.

In trying to understand presence – the propensity of humans to respond to fake stimuli as if they are real – the researchers are not just gaining insights into how the human brain functions. They are also learning how to create more intense and realistic virtual experiences, opening the door to myriad applications for healthcare, training, social research and entertainment…” Continue reading When Virtual Reality Feels Real, ScienceDaily, May 13, 2009.

“Dynamic Ribbon Device” by Siebren Versteeg

Dynamic Ribbon Device, by Siebren Versteeg, elaborates software art exploiting the continuous flow of information from Internet, tapping into data streams and news feeds, to visually present them in the branding style of global corporations which mediate our consumer and info worlds. In Dynamic Ribbon Device, he transforms the realtime world news feed from a major press agency into a Coke’s cursive red and white typography flowing through the screen as droplets on a fresh can of soda. Part of KIOSK: Artifacts of a Post-Digital Age (curated by Yves Bernard and Domenico Quaranta).

Wikipedia Threatens Artists for Fair Use

“Can a noncommercial critical website use the trademark of the entity it critiques in its domain name? Surprisingly, it appears that the usually open-minded folks at Wikipedia think not.

Last February, a pair of artists, working with several collaborators, created a Wikipedia article and invited the general public to add to it, following Wikipedia’s standards of credibility and verifiability. The work was intended to comment on the nature of art and Wikipedia. But Wikipedia editors did not take kindly to the project, and it was shut down within fifteen hours for being insufficiently “encyclopaedic.” Continue reading

Confessions of a Recovering Data Collector

Confessions of a Recovering Data Collector is the first book to be published about Ellie (Harrison’s) work. It was released (today) to coincide with the artist’s solo exhibition at the Viewpoint Gallery, Plymouth College of Art.

Ellie Harrison was a ‘data collector’. For over five years she documented and recorded information about nearly every aspect of her daily routine, amassing reams of data in the process. She photographed and catalogued 1,640 meals and snacks for her project Eat 22, and calculated the total distance of a year’s worth of travel on public transport for Gold Card Adventures. But these laborious, demanding and introverted processes took their toll. Something had to give. Ellie had to quit! Continue reading
