      • Chasing Space


        from Marco Bagni LostConversation Added 116K 4,799 66

        So we have this process, called life, it's aware of itself, it's aware of itself through you, you are an instrument through which the Universe looks at itself. The Universe is looking at itself through you, and because of this there is always an aspect of itself that it can't see. Like a snake pursuing his own tale. That's what we find as we investigate the Universe: Make the microscope bigger and bigger, and we will find ever more minute things; Make the telescope bigger and bigger, and the Universe expands, because it's running away from itself; It won't do that if you don't chase it! You cannot take the whole of it, but you can get rid of it! People around you will do the utmost to persuade you that you are missing something, because they are missing something and they think they are getting it, through a certain way; and therefore, to assure theirselves, they like you to do it too! ----------------- CHASING SPACE Concept/Animation: www.lostconversation.com Sound: SARC:O www.iamsarco.com Words here taken and interpreted from Alan Watts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqmkRrFYO1w (must watch at least 1st minute) Enjoy!

In this experiment, a team of emerging artists will install their audiovisual installation “Infinite” in Avery Room 115. “115” is not only the room number but also the serial number of the experiment, which is the first attempt of a series of ongoing debugging activities that will take place in different venues. “Infinite 115” is also a spatial replacement. It replaces two seemingly structural walls and the corner they enclose in Room 115 by projecting moving, non-structural, opened geometric shapes, thus questioning the existence and the formation of the space. ........................................... Observations on “Infinite” by LIU Chang The idea of this work first came to my mind when I was visiting Dia:Beacon at upstate one year ago, where I encountered Sol Lewitt’s wall drawing series. When I saw those huge linear elements traced on the wall deliberately in graphite, I felt the weight but in a contradictory lightness. The linear elements are light, while the heaviness of the wall gives a pressure upon the viewer. The heaviness of the wall is overwhelming. Especially when I stood in front of a huge black wall with two transformed cubes, I felt a mysterious force which motivated me to go to this enigmatic shape. This contradiction continues in Lewitt’s Open Cube series, in which there are two walls that enclose a spatial corner, and a cube that belongs to both sides. The combination of the cube and the wall give me a driving force to be willing to be absorbed by the corner, but it exists in reality and would not allow me to enter. When I talked about this experience to Miao Jing, he was very excited to discuss the topic of “Cube”. As a fundamental shape in geometry, it composed of six faces and 12 edges. It became more complex when we tried to locate a cube in a real interior space; the components of the cube would rise to 24 2-D right angles and 8 3-D right angular vertices. Meanwhile, the logic of the cube will extend to the shape of viewer. The 90° right angle does not welcome anybody nor resist. It is depressed, extended and infinite. The experience is an encounter with a marvelous spectacle. Then the projection and the sound add up within the space interleaving. Infinite is a unique experience, or an atmosphere, like when one is immersed in a mountain, a waterfall or a cliff in infusive perceptions. The geometric visual shapes and synthesized sounds express the same velocity and tactility. Then tension and force generated by the vision and sound deploy permanently. We compute the incomputable universe with couter and time. Artificial codes embody the universe and make it connected with us. Time, codes and the 81 Open Cubes of Lewitt compose the visual part of Infinite. There is neither end nor beginning to be found. Universe, time, code of machine and perception are all our concerns and are been pursuing infinitely.

This is caused by the motion after-effect (MAE). It is a visual illusion experienced after viewing a moving visual stimulus for a time (tens of milliseconds to minutes) with stationary eyes, and then fixating on a stationary stimulus. The stationary stimulus appears to move in the opposite direction to the original (physically moving) stimulus. The motion aftereffect is believed to be the result of motion adaptation. Explanation: Neurons coding a particular movement reduce their responses with time of exposure to a constantly moving stimulus; this is neural adaptation. Neural adaptation also reduces the spontaneous, baseline activity of these same neurons when responding to a stationary stimulus. One theory is that perception of stationary objects, for example rocks beside a waterfall, is coded as the balance among the baseline responses of neurons coding all possible directions of motion. Neural adaptation of neurons stimulated by downwards movement reduces their baseline activity, tilting the balance in favor of upwards movement.

                    • And In That Moment, I Felt Infinite


                      from Karen Abad Added

                      “Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover act without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity, and, beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity. I suppose what makes me most glad is that we all recognize each other in this metaphysical space of silence and happening, and get some sense, for a moment, that we are full of paradise without knowing it.” – Thomas Merton This project was inspired by Patrick Moberg’s MellowTron: http://www.stuffedrobot.com/images/public/regular/b233b0cac595646233a3f7947e622537.jpg Three days ago, I posted my cell phone number on my blog and asked people to anonymously call it and leave a voice message to the question: What is loneliness? Predominantly using digital stills manipulated in post, some video footage, and lo-fi audio recordings of messages from my cell phone, this was an attempt to make a coherent psychological discourse of strangers’ emotional dispositions, which resulted in a huge emotional investment. This was an extremely difficult question to answer, and I am so grateful to all who participated. Here are the messages transcribed: http://karenabad.tumblr.com/post/36237755/loneliness-is __________________________________________________________ This is, "Loneliness," the second installment of "Robot Feelings" videos.
