    “Commons Tense” exhibits the works of new media artists from Turkey. Being a
    sub-theme of amberPlatform’s 2012 theme entitled “Paratactic Commons”. Commons
    Tense points out that it is now time to talk within a new category that embeds the
    Commons in.
    The decade that followed 9/11 witnessed a radical regression of communal energies,
    forcing us to live strictly in individual spheres; the fear and control society in the
    guise of a war on terror, the tendency of nation-states to impose their ideological
    agendas onto everyone and everything under their control and the conflicts and
    collaborations of a global consumerist economy that urges the rapid privatization of
    public goods have all taken a toll on the common values of human societies around
    the Globe. The commons that we need to regain entail a broad spectrum. They range
    from ecological unbalances, which result from the privatization of natural resources,
    to the ‘de facto’ privatization of judicial systems, which has led to the degradation
    of a justice that is common to all.
    Meanwhile, the ever-popularizing digital media, beginning with the Internet itself
    as a common resource, has been a major source of inspiration in revitalizing the
    idea of the commons. More specifically, the capacities oered by new media have
    helped to re-understand that information is a “common” as well as the right to
    access information.
    Can digital commons be an alternative platform to launch a political thought whose
    main aim is sharing, transparency, and freedom to access information? What can
    we learn from free software’s, copyleft movements, peer-2-peer systems, the logic of
    open source, and creative commons? Could the digital-commons help for the creation
    of another form of economy and ecology? Could humans share their common
    resources rather than exploit them? What kind of paratactic artistic strategies could
    digital commons consist of?
    Realized in collaboration with TodaysArt Festival in Den Haag and Academy of Fine
    Arts Saar in Saarbrücken the artworkspresented at the exhibition will oer various
    interpretations of the theme. Theco-events, which consist of two workshops and
    artist’s presentations will be held in the week before the exhibition. One of the
    workshops focuses on building Arduino Boards, an  open-source, easy-to use
    hardware and software electronics platform for artist and designers.In the second
    workshop participants will experiment with Arduino Boards using python and
    processing programming languages.

  2. Open Innovation in Practice New Ceramic Printing-Process Combines Individual Design and Serial Production

    Di­gi­tal fa­bri­ca­ti­on tech­ni­ques are a key dri­ver in the ra­di­cal (and con­tro­ver­si­al) de­cen­tra­liza­t­i­on of pro­duct de­sign. An on­go­ing re­se­arch pro­ject of the dpz (Di­gi­ta­les Pro­duk­ti­ons­zen­trum, Cen­ter for Di­gi­tal Pro­duc­tion) at the Aca­de­my of Fine Arts Saar, ‘3D Ce­ra­mic Prin­ting’ ex­plo­res the extent to which plas­tic prin­ting tech­ni­ques can be used in ce­ra­mic de­sign pro­ces­ses. In­vol­ving a mul­ti-uni­ver­si­ty team, the in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry pro­ject aims to de­ve­lop a new ce­ra­mic prin­ter.

    First pro­ject out­co­mes were pre­sen­ted Fe­bru­ary 2013 at the aca­de­my’s an­nu­al art show. The col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve pro­ject im­ple­men­ted a com­ple­te ge­ne­ra­ti­ve work­flow, from data input to the out­put of tool­paths for in-hou­se pro­duc­tion. An in­no­va­ti­ve tool for de­sign and pro­duc­tion, the prin­ter of­fers new pos­si­bi­li­ties in the de­sign and shaping of ce­ra­mic ob­jects - ob­jects with ca­verns, un­der­cuts, or or­na­men­tal struc­tu­res can­not be ge­ne­ra­ted through known ana­log ap­proa­ches.

    Sup­por­ted by open hard- and soft­ware, the pro­ject in­te­gra­tes es­ta­blis­hed me­thods (coil) and di­gi­tal fa­bri­ca­ti­on to de­ve­lop fur­ther exis­ting 3D ce­ra­mic prin­ting tech­ni­ques. The new ap­proach main­ta­ins the in­di­vi­dua­li­ty of ob­jects in a ma­chi­nic pro­duc­tion pro­cess, al­lo­wing the ge­ne­ra­ti­on of type va­ria­ti­ons, small se­ries, as well as cust­o­miza­t­i­on as user mo­di­fied ob­jects or through user in­ter­faces such as Reactable.Because of the par­ti­cu­lar sur­face cha­rac­te­ris­tics ge­ne­ra­ted through this pro­cess, ob­jects have dif­fe­rent aes­t­he­tic and hap­tic qua­li­ties; the pro­ject will con­ti­nue to ex­plo­re the extent to which 3D-prin­ting tech­ni­ques offer fu­ture de­sign op­ti­ons for the pro­ces­sing of ce­ra­mic.

    The pro­ject ex­em­pli­fies the open re­se­arch ap­proach of the dpz. Bey­ond the use of open hard- and soft­ware, open in­no­va­ti­on in­clu­des an ‘open stu­dio’ ap­proach, where stu­di­os are open to stu­dents from a va­rie­ty of di­sci­pli­na­ry back­grounds, crea­ting new free­doms throughout the con­cep­tua­liza­t­i­on and de­sign pro­cess. The team in­clu­des pro­duct de­sign stu­dents from the Aca­de­my of Fine Arts Saar as well as Media In­for­ma­tics stu­dents from Saar­land Uni­ver­si­ty. The dpz pro­ject is sup­por­ted by xm:lab, the aca­de­my’s new in­sti­tu­te for ex­pe­ri­men­tal edu­ca­ti­on. It co­or­di­na­tes a wide spec­trum of pro­jects at the in­ter­sec­tions of art, de­sign and tech­no­lo­gy.
