3D PRINTED CLOCK

Digital fabrication using 3D printers is an additive manufacturing method that is generally cheaper than the molding and/or tooling process. It allows for highly customized greener end-products that can be produced on-demand. In the Fablab, there are interactive pen tablets where a physible can be created by anyone, then linked by digital interface to a 3D printer.

William J. Mitchell, Peter Schmitt & Robert Swartz.

earthstar

David Haines & Joyce Hinterding‘s EarthStar emphasizes the sun’s elemental and mythic qualities. Spectacular footage of the solar chromo-sphere merges with virtual aroma compositions that smell ozonic. Building a bridge between these two elements, the radio bursts emitted by the sun provide a real-time soundtrack. Based on scientific facts, this exploration of electromagnetic and vibrational energy of the sun offers an intense, poetically charged experience for all of the senses.

bios [Bible]

Like a monk in a scriptorium, an industrial robot draws calligraphic lines with high precision on rolls of paper that, after 7 months, will yield a completely transcribed bible. This installation emphasizes scripture as the elementary function for two cultural systems of religion and science.

Some pix from the Device Art Project:

• The Media Vehicle, from Hiroo Iwata, is a bulbous-shaped mode of transport
that allows the user to travel in real or virtual spaces with the help of
a wide-angle external camera feeding visuals to the inside of the capsule.
There can be a sense of displacement that may cause some to become queasy
if the outside motion of the camera is too jerky,
but the intention is to present more realistic imagery taken from differing angles.
For example, the camera can be mounted on the underside of the vehicle
and as the vehicle moves forward, you get the feeling
of being like a small animal traveling close to the ground.

“Morpho Tower” series – toward a responsive and dynamic form of morphing art

Sachiko Kodama creates ferrofluid sculpture which becomes a dynamically fluid art form using an electromagnet with an iron core that is sculpted into a chosen shape. The ferrofluid covers the sculpted iron shape with it’s movements being controlled by adjusting the power of the electromagnet. Sensors and/or computer input may be used as a controlling mechanism.

• I’m a bit reluctant to promote any kind of shooting or competitive game,
but this is an interesting all-around (eh, hem) concept nonetheless.
Ryota Kuwakubo has created the LoopScape which does away with the flat “left-right” appearance
of game displays and presents a cylindrical readout
whereby the players move around in circular patterns.
In some ways, it will tone down the number of shots that you may take
trying to hit your opponent because the “bullet” can make it’s way around the circle
and hit you from behind if you happen to miss. This also gets game-players off their butts and moving,
because you have to keep moving in a circle in order to
follow your actions as well as what your competitor is doing.

• Two other Kuwakubo works that I’m a bit more partial to are both very silly. A Nicodama is an electronic eyeball equipped with an infrared transceiver and mechanic apparatus. You attach two of them to any object and suddenly you have a face with randomly blinking eyes.

• …and true to it’s name, Kuwakubo’s  SiliFulin is a robot tail
that takes us back to our prehensile days:

BOUNDARIES HAVE BEEN ERODED

Since the 1985 ruling by the US Patent and Trademark Office that genetically engineered plants, seeds and plant tissue could be patented, we’ve seen an enormous, but disturbing growth of modified agriculture crops. Privatization and commodification of nature contributing, ultimately, to an unnatural inurement that we can expect to continue in subsequent generations – unless we reach a stage where enough people have had enough when presented with something like a bio-engineered pet.
Genpets are here to help you reconsider.

piezing to the eye

Here’s a garment that harnesses energy from the natural gestures of the human body in motion. Around the joints of the elbows and hips, there are embedded piezoelectric sensors that generate electric potential in response to the natural mechanical stress of movement. This is then stored in a small battery as voltage and potential energy that can be later coupled with a device needing the charge. This means that you could potentially recharge your iPhone or another small electric device.

Rod Stasick is a composer in the broad sense of the term. He is interested in the creation of event-systems for various situations. Template scores are often created using a combination of graphic signs and symbols that usually suggests a syncretism of styles and methods of performance. Using these methods, he produces works in diverse disciplines (audio, video, text, mail art, conceptualism, etc.) utilizing assorted influences: Eastern Philosophy, Fluxus, The Situationist International, Oulipo, Semiotics, Discrete Event-Systems, random numbers to revamp Zen planning and forms of Information Theory.
