Will Burn's Website. Silk – Interactive Generative Art. PLANTOID – by PRIMAVERA DE FILIPPI, DAVID BOVILL, VINCENT ROUDAUT AND SARA RENAUD. INFOCRASH: 48h FRI 17:00 - SUN 17:00 // Workshop Plantoid is a bionic blockchain-based installation.


Plantoid, the plant equivalent of an android, is an autopoietic sculpture —a self-owned artist that owns and finances itself, and eventually reproduces itself. It is, in essence, a hybrid entity that exists both in the physical and virtual world, where it can interact with other entities on the blockchain.In its physical form, it is a welded mechanical sculpture on display in a public space —an aesthetic ornaments that exhibits its mechanical beauty and begs to be appreciated by the public.

Appreciation is done via interactions with the public who can ‘tip or feed’ the Plantoid by sending tokens into its Bitcoin wallet.Legally speaking, Plantoids do not have any legal entity, since —as opposed to corporations— the law does not recognize legal personhood to commodities or things.

L’artiste Honor Harger (@honorharger) s’occupe de Lighthouse, une agence culturelle numérique chargée de monter des productions et des expositions pour montrer que la culture numérique n’est pas qu’une question d’outils et de technologie, mais bien avant tout une question d’émotions et d’apprentissages.

Son blog, le décélérateur de particules (@_decelerator), est ainsi à son image, à la confluence entre l’art et la technologie. Sur la scène de Lift France 2012, elle nous posait la question suivante : Que se passe-t-il quand les artistes pensent la technologie comme les ingénieurs ? « Les artistes qui utilisent les nouvelles technologies sont une source essentielle pour comprendre la manière dont notre monde se confronte aux technologies », estime Honor Harger.

These Mechanical Flowers "Bloom" And Change Color When Hit With Weather And Pollution Data. At The Creators Project HQ in Brooklyn, it finally feels like spring.

These Mechanical Flowers "Bloom" And Change Color When Hit With Weather And Pollution Data

I mean, finally finally. We had sleet yesterday, and the trees still don't have leaves, but today it's genuinely warm out, and we're beginning to feel less jealous of our LA friends. Thus, our bitterness has settled, and we can showcase awesome west coast projects like Liminoid Garden without resentment. The project by artist Filipa Valente was part of the art and architecture festival, SKYLINE 2014, and her work included "mechanical blooms," or metal floral sculptures, equipped with electronic controllers that received light, temperature, and pollution readings from the surrounding neighborhood, subsequently causing them to move and change colors. Depending on the data the "leaves" received, the indoor jungle evoked a subtle breathing motion that changed when audience members approached.

The Liminoid Garden's name indicates the disorientation that occurs midway through performance rituals. Sans titre. Le numérique n’est pas un médium. Notes et réflexions. Aux périodes pré-modernes, les techniques se développaient indépendamment de la pensée du global (religion, philosophie).

notes et réflexions

Selon Gilbert Simondon [1], l’art jouait alors le rôle de lien entre religion et technique. Les époques modernes et a fortiori post-modernes lient au contraire de façon intime technique (de mesure) et idéologie (économique). Dans un monde agrégeant donc technologie et idéologie, le lien que faisait l’art entre la pensée du global et la pratique du quotidien a tendance à se diluer. Pour exister, l’art devrait retrouver son indépendance vis à vis de cet agglomérat qu’est la technidéologie, où l’information se perd au profit du média qui la porte (the medium is the message).

L’art se doit de continuer à tisser des liens renouvelés entre d’une part concrétude technique (notre quotidien numérique), et d’autre part, philosophie et poésie, c’est-à-dire une certaine idée de ce qui nous lie. J'aime : J'aime chargement… The Red List.
