Kinetic Sculptures

a Living System | LS_01 + LS_02 Cinematic Espresso Shots By Hannah Piercey If Aristotle were alive today, to paraphrase a famous Timothy Leary adage, he would have a Vimeo channel. So believes Jason Silva, a young futurist and filmmaker with movie-star looks and a childlike sense of wonder. Leary’s notion of the philosopher as a performer is a natural fit for Silva. Silva double-majored in film and philosophy at the University of Miami. Silva received his first camera at age 12 and became immediately obsessed. “Watching the video later, after the insight wore out—after a meal or shower when I was in a different mode of consciousness—created an interesting feedback loop between my ‘experiencing self’ and my ‘remembering self,’” Silva reflected, borrowing a concept from psychologist Daniel Kahneman’s 2010 TEDTalk. After nearly five years at Current and feeling ready for a new challenge, Silva left the channel to produce videos independently. Silva quickly found an audience online—and it scaled. And now back to the Timothy Leary reference.

Artilugis, invents, reparacions i objectes fotogràfics. Contact printing frame: the bigger the best! Searching into the family photographic heritage, I found a 10×15 cm contact printing frame. It was a “French type”, with its characteristics two articulated arms with springs. I decided to build a 24×30 cm model for my own use and thought: How big is that! In summer I’ve been asked to build a 30×40 cm model and another 33×48 cm (13 “x19″). This October I have finished four 34×49 cm and two 44×54 cm! Will they be big enough?

m e d u l . l a / b l o g ¿qué significa historiar hoy? ¿cómo los mecanismos de almacenamiento y transmisión de información modifican la manera como opera la memoria humana? estas son algunas de las cuestiones que el proyecto loci intenta plantear. el nombre se viene del sustantivo plural del termino en latín locus, que se puede asociar a un largo conjunto de conceptos, como lugar, situación, estado. el proyecto fue presentado en el sábado, 16 de julio, en el espacio de memoria la perla, como parte de mi participación en la residencia del proyecto demolición/construcción. aún en desarrollo, la aplicación web fue presentada como prototipo para su discusión en conjunto con los demás artistas y pensadores participantes. más detalles cuanto al proceso de desarrollo serán revelados luego. es también de mi intención publicar acá un texto que soporta conceptualmente algunas de las cuestiones tratadas por el proyecto (conforme anuncié un par de semanas atrás).
