ISLAND PHYSICS - 22-23 AUGUST

12:00PM-5:00PM

GOVERNOR’S ISLAND: HOUSE 15 

Chris Woebken, Sascha Pohflepp and Andreas Nicolas Fischer will spend their time on Governors Island commissioning a series of computer simulations that will run within a meticulous virtual recreation of Building 15. The individual simulations are being created by a selection of 3D artists who form part of a community that is exploring the aesthetics of simulation in the context of contemporary computer graphics, often disseminating their work on social media rather than in an academic context. These participating artists include:

Island Physics will turn Eyebeam’s house on Governors Island into a testing-ground for alternate realities, simulating the impossible in a living room.

On the last day of their residency, MSHR created this new synth!"MSHR ‘s new synth is designed to be used as an exploratory hyper object. Internal feedback paths can be routed in different patterns, flowing between NAND and OR gates and stereo VCOs. The synth is has quad outputs which can be mixed as two stereo pairs and controlled in unison. MSHR uses the VCOs in stereo to explore the long term fascination with “third ear” music ala Maryanne Amacher. It is also designed to be a symbiotic module in a light audio feedback system.”

ZACH BLAS CURATED LIBRARY

imageEyebeam artist in residence Zach Blas has curated a selection of titles at Eyebeam storefront. Currently, he is producing a body of work that responds to technological control and refusals of political visibility through tactics of escape, disappearance, illegibility, and opacity. One project, Facial Weaponization Suite, produces “collective masks” in community-based workshops that cannot be detected by biometric facial recognition technologies. This project, as well as his Face Cages, are part of the 2014 Annual Showcase, at Eyebeam until February 1. 

Here is a full list of Zach’s Curated Library, all available at Eyebeam Storefront:

SOFTWARE TAKES COMMAND

image

Software Takes Command, a discussion on software’s influence on design, art, data and culture, took place this past Wednesday at Eyebeam Storefront. Lev Manovich discussed key ideas from his new book Software Takes Command (Bloomsbury Academic, 2013). Christiane Paul talked about software art’s aesthetics and poetics, as well as its position within art history and the artworld at large. Paul D. Miller (D.J. Spooky) presented his forthcoming book The Imaginary App - an anthology of art and scholarship on app-computing co-authored by Svitlana Matviyenko. Artist and Eyebeam Fellow Katie Torn talked about her her transition from traditional art and illustration to working in a complete 3D Maya-generated environment.

Software Takes Command is available at the Eyebeam Storefront and on Amazon.com.

PAULINE OLIVEROS AT EYEBEAM STOREFRONT

image

Pauline Oliveros and Ghost Ensemble celebrated the release of Oliveros’ Anthology of Text Scores with a book signing and interactive, multimedia concert performance. Ghost Ensemble presented several works from this groundbreaking collection of masterful scores, including those less often performed.
Anthology of Text Scores contains over one hundred pieces that span four decades of creative work.  Collected in one comprehensive volume, these individual and group meditations, as well as solo and ensemble performance pieces, are invaluable resources for performing musicians, music students, and anyone interested in the life work of one the most unique voices in modern music. 
Available on Amazon.com and at the Eyebeam Storefront.

The Emoji Art & Design Show
In today’s visually oriented culture, which increasingly communicates through images rather than text, emoji comprise a kind of “visual vernacular,” a language that conveys humor, ambiguity and personality as well as meaning. 
This visual form of communication isn’t necessarily new—from cave paintings, to hieroglyphics, to religious and mythological symbols encoded in traditional painting and sculpture, we’ve been communicating through images since the dawn of mankind—but its dominance in culture today, especially among millennials, seems to indicate a greater shift in our approach to self-expression.
If you’re an artist or designer working with emoji, send us your work. We’re looking for a diverse array of interpretations and appropriations of the emoji that exist both on and offline. The show welcomes new and existing works from a variety of mediums ranging from net art, to painting and sculpture, video and performance.
You can find out more about the show and how to submit at the project’s website here
