  2. Mit einer Tischler-Kantenschleifmaschine wird vom Werkstück (Holz, Walnuss, Trafo, Schädel oder analoger Kamera) immer ein halber Millimeter abgeschliffen und fotografiert. Aus ca 650 Aufnahmen entsteht ein Kurzfilm, der die innere Struktur von Natur und Technik gegenüberstellt.

    With an edge sander, half a millimeter is sanded off each work piece (wood, walnut, transformer, skull or analogue camera) and photographed. About 650 photos are made into a short film, which contrasts the inner structure of nature and technology.

    This is six 1080p videos a TV signal being disrumpted from either having a bad reception, digital blocking gliches, or weak antenna signal. Each of the six videos works in a seamless loop to easily match your videos length. Simply drag and drop one or more clips of these clips on top of your footage to achieve realistic television signal disruptions.

  4. A quick demo of some of the current live patching ideas being experimented on in v002.app during our Eyebeam residency.

    The goal of v002 is to lower user interface latency of live performance software, and create a playable software interface that feels at home in an improvisational environment.

    v002 is heavily influenced and borrows ideas from a plethora of sources: Quicklook, Spotlight / Quicksilver's live search (with aliasing included, so users can also explore and guess at feature names*), Maya and Modo's spatial menu system (for muscle memory and hierarchical navigation), and obviously tools like Autodesk Flame/Smoke, Max/MSP, Pure Data, Quartz Composer and the entire family of node based tools.

    We explore a simplified patching environment, along with a "flight deck" (UI objects can be dragged out of detail views and placed onto the canvas - so users can have an overview with immediately accessible controls, and detail views for tweaking). We explore auto-node connection, removal and re-connection so the object graph remains connected when being edited, some basic auto-graph layout methods.

    v002 is *heavily* in progress, and we have a lot more to explore. Stay tuned.

    * Aliasing is demoed when searching for the "Analog Glitch" effect. You can search: "Distortion", "Noise", "Interference", "TV", along with the effect name, "Analog Glitch" - all will return the intended effect. Searching "Glitch", for example, nets you multiple hits, where you can choose the desired result.

    ABOUT EMPTY CHAIRS I (FORWARDS) & EMPTY CHAIRS II (Backwards) by Lia Parisyan

    She is Queen of a cubical wasteland.

    Changing corporate landscape wastelands, where once a protestant ethic served as the driving force behind the American economy. The Golden era, the height of consumer confidence and capitalism bustling with activity, growth and innovation- all celebrated printed and packaged. Glossy letters and cellophane sealed of promises of a novelty experience.

    Now, all is replaced with sterility. What seems like a transmission from the future is stands as an accurate look at the present. The lively pulse of the American work force struggles to beat. An assembly line moving forward is carrying a single package in an empty warehouse without a final destination.

    A Futuristic vision of the present lends to an atmosphere of absence. The pursuit of economic success and betterment has been eradicated. American spirit and dream stripped. This lone woman is the byproduct of once celebrated values being removed and transferred from the purpose of a postmodern American sentimentality.

    The dollar was a symbol of strength, reliability once the most powerful recognized symbol of an individual freedom and purchasing power. Now rendered useless the entire confidence, pride and hope shook the peoples faith in the US government. The middle class has been dealt a mortal blow. The future grows dim.

    A way of life, an economy, a nation of people and a value system are facing inevitable extinction.

    American fortitude, golden paved streets. Not the industrial future of Metropolis but the unnatural light of particleboard and empty cubicles interrupted by the pulsing fluorescent lights and forced Glitch symbolism indicating that the system is failing. Finality reverberates with the last employee as she strolls through the empty floor with a mournful face, which bears witness to everyone downsized before her.

    About the Artist:

    Morgan Freeman (bluecrash.com) has been focusing on his Glitch period for 2011. Glitches symbolize the break down and overheating of any system.

    Artist would like to thank Anton (Vade) for being a guiding light in the Digitalism art movement in NYC.
