In March 2015 Allahyari and Rourke released The 3D Additivist Manifesto, a call to push additive manufacturing technologies to their absolute limits and beyond, into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird. They then issued a call for submissions for a radical Cookbook of blueprints, designs, 3D-printing templates, and essays on the topics raised by their Manifesto.
The resulting 3D Additivist Cookbook - made up of imaginative, provocative works from over 100 world-leading artists, activists and theorists - was published on December 2nd 2016 and can be downloaded for free at: additivism.org/cookbook
#Additivism considers the 3D printer as a profound metaphor for our times. A technology for channelling creative endeavour, through digital processes, into the layering of raw matter excavated from ancient geological eras. Considered as a tool for art, design and engineering, and gesturing towards a forthcoming era of synthetic chemistry and biological augmentation, 3D fabrication technologies are already a site of common exchange between disciplines and forms of materiality. 3D fabrication can be thought of as the critical framework of #Additivism: a movement that aims to disrupt material, social, computational, and metaphysical realities through provocation, collaboration, and ‘weird’ / science fictional thinking.
#Additivism is essential for accelerating the emergence and encounter with The Radical Outside.
The 3D Additivist Manifesto was created by Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke, with sound design by Andrea Young.
Este video es la presentación en el seminario internacional x0y1 http://www.x0y1.net/encuentro02.html
Presenta una mini investigación en proceso sobre el error, el fallo y el fracaso.
"La intención de este ensayo/investigación es visibilizar y reivindicar nuevas (viejas) aproximaciones a lo tecnológico, buscando en esas inconcebibles formas unas vías que se articulen al margen de las lógicas del patriarcado."
A slow sketchbook-style animated film that takes a look at people at a "La Fete Nationale" celebration in Montreal, Quebec. The film was an independent production, directed and animated by Malcolm Sutherland with music by Kevin Kardasz, and was produced with financial assistance from The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
Looks best in HD!!
The song HAT by Max and Laura Braun presents an enigmatic story of love, discovery and loss, a sense of home and growing up. Foresaking linearity and coherence, a narrative is conveyed through fleeting glimpses, allowing a subtle landscape of emotion and memory to emerge, its contours defined by thick, soft lines.
This dreamlike style is continued throughout the video made by director Michael Fragstein. Hand painted sequences unfolding in an empty space accompany the song’s lyrics. Replete with ambiguity and symbolism, these images appear, merge and fade. An ongoing chain of events reveals an infinite number of ties between the protagonists, while leaving room for interpretation and a space for the audience to reflect.
