Pleix Filter: installation view all News Film Paleodictyon Paleodictyon A project by Simon Geilfus, Yannick Jacquet and Thomas Vaquié Centre Pompidou Metz, France, October 6th 2012 Loosely inspired by the work and research of deep-sea expert Peter A. Rona, the piece abolishes notions of scale by contrasting micro-architecture with human construction. Fascinated by the marks left by unknown creatures called Paleodictyon Nodosum, he offers the hypothesis that these hexagonal structures are designed in order to cultivate bacteria. A modern day Captain Nemo, Peter A. The New Aesthetic A GLIMPSE into the future of retailing is available in a smallish office in Hamburg. From there, Otto, a German e-commerce merchant, is using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve its activities. The firm is already deploying the technology to make decisions at a scale, speed and accuracy that surpass the capabilities of its human employees.Big data and “machine learning” have been used in retailing for years, notably by Amazon, an e-commerce giant.

[Video] Jim Campbell's Sculptural LED Light Installations Even the Lumiére Brothers would glow over the work of artist and light engineer, Jim Campbell. The prolific pioneer of patchwork bulb-wiring's career spans three decades, and his work keeps on getting better—the artist's newest works have been called "consummate" and "transformative" by Art Daily after their debut this month at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery. It goes without saying that the mastery of his specific genre of low resolution re-imagings, communicated through programmed bulbs and LEDs, is a practice thirty years in the making. Good thing he's got a retrospective show coming up. Rhythms of Perception, the artist's first major exhibition in a New York museum, brings a survey spanning his career in contemporary art to the Museum of the Moving Image on March 20, from his earliest pieces to his project in Madison Square Park and his new work, showcased in our documentary on the luminary (above!).

judith Darmont As one of the French digital art pioneers, Judith Darmont digital paintings & installations were already exhibited in Le Centre Pompidou, Le Palais de Tokyo, Le Forum des Images, in the early 90s. Installation and Video Artwork became a basis for cross media creations and collaborations. Urban Spirits, a Digital Street Art creation. With Urban Spirits, French digital art pioneer Judith Darmont creates both digital street art and an interactive toolbox for urbanites and urbanists. Ephemeral, temporary and permanent art as a poetic and video arty proposition to deal with the urban space issue.
CRAFTING HUMAN PERCEPTION / EXHIBITION « Francesca Perona Interactive installation that explores new ways of extending the natural bandwidth of human perception through computational textiles and sensors. The piece creates an immersive enviroment in which visitors rediscover tactile experiences and body awareness. The visitors encounter two panels and two pairs of head-phones hanging from the ceiling.
Res, a matter. Following our previous study on biophysical and spatial sensing, we narrowed down the focus of our research, and constrained a new study to MMI with 2 biosignals only. Namely, we focused on mechanomyogram (MMG) and electromyogram (EMG) from arm muscle gesture. Although there exists research in New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) focused on each of the signals, to the best of our knowledge, the combination of the two has not been investigated in this field. The following questions initiated this study: In which ways to analyse EMG/MMG for complementary information about gestural input? How can musician control separately the two biosignals? Kinetic architecture (1/3) Kinetic architecture (1/3) fLUX, Binary Waves – Lab[au] Another great project by LAb[au], “fLUX binary waves” is an urban and cybernetic installation based on the measuring of infrastructural ( passengers, cars…) and communicational ( electromagnetic fields produced by mobile phones, radio…) flows and their transposition into luminous, sonic and kinetic rules. This relation between the installation and the urban activity happens in real time and sets each person as an element of the installation, as a centre of the public realm. The installation fLUX, binary waves is constituted by a network of 32 rotating and luminous panels of 3 meter-high and 60 centimetres wide, placed every 3 meters to form a kinetic wall. The panels rotate around their vertical axis, and have a black reflective surface on one side, the other being plain mat white.
"SKIN" Transforms Your Emotions Into Sound And Color Through Sweat Data This week, Harvest Works gallery in New York exhibited an installation by audiovisual artist, Claudia Robles, that gets under your skin... literally. SKIN is a project that measures gallery visitors' skin moisture using a GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) interface and transforms that data into sound and images. Psychological states such as stress, nervousness, and even arousal become observable, external information. Be careful who you test it out around.
