    'Scribbluminous' is an exploration into using the gallery architecture as an immersive digital canvas. By combining a motorised mirror with a programmed projection system, scribbles are automatically linked to various surfaces throughout the space. The juxtaposition between the structural forms of the space and the overlay of the free-form digital sketches peeks at the possibility of hybridised 'digital yet physical', 'static yet dynamic' multi-dimensional environments. It also attempts to raise questions of the theoretical and known length and breadth of interdimentional interplay. The outcome of the scribbles are guided by the architecture of the space, the scribbles are also designed to demonstrate an organic and improvised interpretation of the space, a frame of mind.

      • Peter William Holden Presents [SoleNoid β]

        Shoes, Industrial Computer, Compressed Air Components 4.5m x 4.5m x 0.5m Eight tap shoes are set in a symmetrical circular pattern. This allows the kinetic elements of the installation to produce three-dimensional sounds in relation to the listener / observer. The shoes are attached to simple robotic structures which utilize pneumatic actuators and solenoid valves. This enables the shoes to be moved in a multitude of ways with each movement having a distinct characteristic sound. The movements of the shoes are sequenced with a computer to produce an auditory performance. The installation itself works in two ways either as a pre-programmed piece performed by the machine alone or it can be played via a control panel by members of the public. The 16 key control panel functions like a sequencer with each key triggering a short loop of movements / sounds, these sounds and movements can easily be patched together to produce a composition.

          Benjamin Grosser Facebook Demetricator 2012-present software (demonstration video) The Facebook interface is filled with numbers. These numbers, or metrics, measure and present our social value and activity, enumerating friends, likes, comments, and more. Facebook Demetricator allows you to hide these metrics. No longer is the focus on how many friends you have or on how much they like your status, but on who they are and what they said. Friend counts disappear. ’16 people like this’ becomes ‘people like this’. Through changes like these, Demetricator invites Facebook’s users to try the system without the numbers, to see how their experience is changed by their absence. Thus, with this open source browser addon I aim to disrupt the prescribed sociality these metrics produce, enabling a network society that isn’t dependent on quantification.

            Choreographic installation Materials: Composite plastic, Computer, Compressed Air Components, Mp3 Player. Dimensions: 5m x 4m x 1.50m “Vicious Circle” is inspired by the “The Industrial Revolution” and the subsequent changes in human development brought about by that revolution. It is a brutalist robotic structure and it is a representation of some of the fears I have with technology. The motion of the machine reminds me of the relentless movement of progress as the machine moves to its predetermined program, ignorant of its environment and unwilling to stop if anything gets in its way. Though paradoxically it is possible to see beauty within its movements as the life size cast hands rise and fall forming a swarm that flocks together like birds in a choreographed dance to Prokofiev’s “Dance of the knights". Thus reminding me that technology is a double edged sword and we / humanity have the possibility to decide which direction it will take.

              This is a short piece about the existing problems facing the practice of archiving vs. new media and interactive art using Chris Markers "Immemory" as a prime example. In 2009 I became aware of a re-release of Immemory by Chris Marker, available on his website.

                  • "Twisted Strips" (2012) by Daniel Rozin


                    from bitforms gallery / Added

                    Daniel Rozin "Twisted Strips", 2012 polystyrene strips, motors, micro-controller, wooden frame 31 x 31 x 3" / 78.7 x 78.7 x 7.6 cm edition of 6 "Twisted Strips" is a kinetic sculpture that explores serial image generation and perceptual illusion, specifically Op Art from the 1950s and 60s which inspired the piece. Breaking the picture plane into a black field and twenty-one motorized vertical strips, the sculpture produces rhythmic waves of movement. The animated pattern shifts in arc and frequency, as the two motors on each strip continually rotate in and out of phase. Using an approach visually analogous to the tape loop structures found in minimal music and phase music, new shapes constantly flow through the composition, which are perceived by the eye as a singular picture in motion.
