    from Het Nieuwe Instituut Added 31 0 0

    Het Nieuwe Instituut organiseerde op 24 oktober een lezing met performance kunstenaar Stelarc en curator bio-design William Myers. ​Stelarc is een performance kunstenaar die door fysieke, visuele en akoestische instrumenten met zijn lichaam experimenteert. Zijn grote oeuvre bestaat uit medische experimenten, zoals bijvoorbeeld zijn bekende 3e oor, robotica, virtuele werkelijkheidssystemen, en drie films die de binnenkant van zijn lichaam onderzoeken. In zijn werk gebruikt Stelarc internet en biotechnologie om afwisselende interacties met het lichaam te onderzoeken. Stelarc zoekt in zijn werk graag naar de grenzen van wat mogelijk is, niet alleen op technologisch en medisch vlak, maar ook ethische vraagstukken worden door hem onderzocht. "In a time of Circulating Flesh, Fractal Flesh and Phantom Flesh organs are extracted and exchanged, bodies and bits of bodies remotely generate recurring patterns of interactivity and haptic technologies generate potent physical presences of virtual flesh. Bodies are hacked, genes are mapped, prosthetics are attached and chimeras are engineered in labs. The trans-species, the trans-gendered and even the trans-human proliferate." Stelarc Moderator William Myers (moderator lezing Stelarc)
 doceert in én schrijft over de geschiedenis van architectuur en design. Hij is auteur van het boek BioDesign: Nature + Science + Creativity, dat ten grondslag ligt aan de tentoonstelling in Het Nieuwe Instituut. In 2012 is het boek uitgegeven door het Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York en Thames & Hudson in Londen. William Myers werkte onder meer samen met het Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, het Museum of Modern Art, het Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum en Genspace. Georganiseerd door Het Nieuwe Instituut en het Centre for Art and Philosophy (Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam) in samenwerking met ISEA-NL, SG Erasmus en V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media.

                    from Rosas Studio Added 42 1 0

                    Site/Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Project Type: Type: Generative Art, Video Installation, Performance, Soundscape Video: Sample Archived Recording HD and Alternative Formats Are Available For Screenings Upon Request Details: A Video Archive of 1:30 hours of Recorded Step and Repeat Output (Randomized Sequences) Abstract: The Step + Repeat Series are audio and video based site specific installations, projections, performances, and soundscape projects. The visualizations and sonifications are unique sequences made using a range of performancebased software in which the content and documents (digital photographs, video and audio) are fed live and manipulated in real-time. A live audio and video based piece using networked media. Based on digital “step and repeat” cycles: a loose metaphor, the Pittsburgh iteration uses video and audio samples recorded in Pittsburgh, PA, and the surrounding western Pennsylvania area –with touchpoints including Primanti’s, the Strip, the Southside, East Liberty, the Northside, Beaver Falls, Jones & McLaughlin, the Monongahela Incline and Pittsburgh’s three rivers.Divided into into six primary segments and a seventh segment including material contributed by viewers to be filtered through a digital randomizer, step and repeat: Pittsburgh cycle maps entrance into an urban environment via incline railway, transit through the city, reflections of the community’s industrial past, particularly steel, and the transformation of city and countryside as the industrial economic base shifts and nature again takes hold of old worksites. In the last two segments the viewer leaves the city, again on incline railway, and watches as the evening paints the city as a visually appealing study of water and reflection.
