UbuWeb .:: Le isole della spiritualità ::. “Le isole della spiritualità” San Francesco del Deserto - San Lazzaro degli Armeni - San Giorgio Maggiore Conventi, monasteri e chiostri fanno da protagonisti a questa particolare escursione. L’escursione parte nei pressi della conca di navigazione di Portegrandi, cerniera tra le acque dolci del fiume Sile e quelle salate della laguna di Venezia. Attraversate le isole di Torcello e Burano, ecco emergere dall’acqua come per magia, fra la massa cupa dei cipressi, una chiesetta col suo campanile acuminato e accanto il povero eremo, con due chiostri silenziosi, ove vivono, isolati dal mondo, pochi fraticelli Minori Conventuali. Oggi i fraticelli mostrano ancora questo pino venerando, che è una reliquia trasmessa di secolo in secolo dai primi confratelli che, dopo la morte del Santo fondatore, si stabilirono nell’isola, loro donata fin dal 1233 dal patrizio veneziano Jacopo Michiel.

Street artist Banksy « Quando si parla di street art non si può non citare Banksy, uno dei suoi maggiori esponenti. Di lui non si sa molto perchè ha sempre preferito l’anonimato. Si sa solo che è inglese, nato e cresciuto a Bristol. Le sue opere hanno sempre carattere satirico, denunciano ironizzando e sono molto apprezzate non solo dal pubblico ma anche dalla critica. Banksy non è soltanto uno street artist, memorabili sono infatti le sue incursioni nei musei più importanti del mondo. U.S.O Project on Sound Exploration, Unseen Noises Library U.S.O (Unidentified Sound Object) Project is defined as a continuing evolving organism of sound. Created by Matteo Milani and Federico Placidi, two sound artists working on several fields and exploring sound in many inspiring ways. Perhaps you already know about their fantastic blog, where they share lots of great things, making the site a must for anyone interested on sound experimentation, film sound design, electronic music, sound synthesis, signal processing, etc. In the last year, Unidentified Sound Object started a new series of libraries aimed to sound designers and composers, starting with Hologram Room, a package of a wide variety of sources suitable for all kind of contexts and designed meticulously by the two sound sculptors. Electromagnetic informations are invisible and omnipresent. Available at U.S.O. $30, 40 files, 48kHz/24-Bit. Below is an interview I did with Matteo and Federico, talking a bit about this new library and the ideas behind their project.

I Want You To Want Me / by Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar / Movements :: new media art decoded - conference for code and design Das Gestaltungskonzept der decoded basiert auf der grafischen Codierung von Worten. Diese erzeugt generative Figuren, welche die Namen von Sprechern, Leitworte oder andere Texte auf neue Weise darstellen. Die visuelle Codierung entsteht aus wenigen festgelegten Regeln für die einzelnen Buchstaben. Dreiecke werden immer von den beiden vorhergehenden Punkten und dem aktuellen aufgezogen. Farbigkeit und leichte Modellierungen der Abstände werden durch die Häufigkeit eines Buchstabens in der deutschen Sprache angepasst.

Preternatural The preternatural, as explored by these artists, disturb the ontological boundaries of art, nature and metaphysics. They exist within the folds of classificatory thresholds: both beyond and between nature and supernature; human and animal; vegetable and mineral; living and dead. The confusion between animate and inanimate is a primary concern, a surreality which unites with the preternatural’s love for reveling in the mysterious: bizarre fragments, unreadable words, objects of absurd scale, and distortions of the relativity of time and space flourish throughout this exhibition. by Celina Jeffery Brooklyn, NY: punctum books, 2011. 38 pages.

A take on Generative Art | Neuro Productions Ok, I did some generative art-like things before. But it was never my goal, they where always somehow the side effect of experimenting with code. But recently I did a nice project for Little Miss Robot. They asked me to make an Air application that generates images with code. At that point the code didn’t really mater. The only thing that counted was the result. Some of the type of pictures the application creates (click to enlarge): (no source code for now, but think Perlin Noise and Delaneay triangulation ) Ill update this post when the app is available. This whas a big difference in mindset for me. I looked around on the internet to see what was actually going on in the generative art scene. Some results of exploring that concept (click to enlarge): Original (public domain) pictures: Source code: generative_art_source Some of the ray traced images (click to enlarge) :

Visualator [Flash, iPhone, iPad] - @CAProjects app by @matthbooth and @creativewax /built in Flash CS5 From the makers of Computer Arts magazine, Visualator lets you create simple abstract imagery with your fingertips. Play with colour, shape and form to produce vibrant collages on the move. The app has launched with two tools - Gradulate and Triangulate and the app is built entirely using Flash CS5. Triangulate Triangulate is a simple graphic image-creator that enables you to make geometric designs. Gradulate Gradulate is a live pen-based drawing system that uses simple physics to drive the pen’s motion, and adds a random element to the creation process. Visualator was created by Matt Booth and Stewart Hamilton-Arrandale. Platform: iPhone/iPad (Universal) Version: 1.0 Cost: Free Developer: Future plc Related
