    • A Mythical Incense Burner


      from CADCAI / Added

      56 Plays / / 0 Comments

      The incense burner in this video is from the Chinese Temple that was originally in Cairns' old China Town. It's made from pewter. The statues are often related prosperity and serenity and can often by depicted with fire engulfing its body. Incense is related to divinity and has always been related to rituals and medicine within the Chinese culture. The Chinese had a significant part in the development of North Queensland and being able to do more heritage work around that is an important part of what the Cairns and District Chinese Association Inc group do. Object Story by Ann Kreger, CADCAI volunteer.

        • Analog Particle Screen | robert mathy

          The Analog Particle Screen attempts to imitate the visual appearance of computer animated particle systems. Computer animated particle systems use physical simulation to produce natural movements of particles. They imitate physic laws and their effects on particles. In his work, Robert Mathy wants to reverse this workflow. He uses real physic laws and particles to simulate the visual appearance of computer animations. The work exists of a table with a screen on the tabletop. Small grains are located in between of two acrylic plates. An algorithmic driven matrix of van der graff generators placed under the screen causes the plates to get charged with electrostatic energy. This causes the particles to move, build swarms, attract and repeal from each other. The audience can interact with the particles by disturbing the electrostatic field when they touch the screen. www.robertmathy.com

              • Andrea Kessler - Revolutions per Minute


                from KA21 / CastYourArt / Added

                RPM, Revolutions per Minute, zeigt eine interaktive Installation der Wiener Architektur- und Medienkünstlerin Andrea Kessler. An dünnen Fäden schwebend, aufgespannt im Raum, reagieren übereinander liegende Flächen aus weißem, elastischem Stoff auf die Annäherungen der Betrachter. Sie driften auseinander und verengen sich, sie bilden Falten, sie werfen fließend Räume auf. Die Ästhetik des lebendigen Raumes zieht an. Dass sich bewegt, was wir als statisch antizipieren, und dabei auch noch kreischende Geräusche von sich gibt, weckt aber auch Grausen. Bewegter Raum hat etwas von der Unheimlichkeit jener Pflanzen, die sich von selbst bewegen, oder Geräusche von sich geben. Mit Revolutions per Minute erprobt Andrea Kessler architektonische Herausforderungen. Die fließende Adaption von Räumen, deren Reaktion auf soziale Prozesse sind Visionen für eine Welt, die immer dichter, immer individueller, immer mobiler wird. Die Installation lädt zu spielerischem Umgang ein. Im Spiel erproben wir en miniatur mögliche Realitäten. Dabei gewöhnen wir uns nicht nur, wir stoßen auch auf Fragen - nach der Machbarkeit, nach der Sinnhaftigkeit, nach der Richtung unserer Dynamik. Ein Portrait von CastYourArt. | www.castyourart.com

                • An early Cairns ink stone

                  46 Plays / / 0 Comments

                  This ink stone was found in the old Cairns temple which was built in the 19th century. It was part of the four treasures which was something scholars used culturally. The stone made the texture and colour of calligraphy ink for painting and writing of the day. The brush is an extension of the person when doing calligraphy. It's an extension of the heart. When the Chinese came to Australia in the late 1800s it would have been an important thing for a scholar to bring. Object Story by Sherry Michael, CADCAI member and volunteer.

                    When you begin programming with JavaScript you might run across books, tutorials, and people who say "Everything in JavaScript is an object." While it's not 100% true (not *everything* is an object), it is *mostly* true. And sometimes this can be a bit surprising. For instance, to most people functions and objects look and act completely different. And in many languages, functions and objects *are* completely different. However, in JavaScript, a function is an object. This can take a bit of concentrated attention to get your head around, but it's an important concept because it's the secret behind another big topic in JavaScript: functions as first class values. And what about values like numbers, booleans and strings? One of the first things you learn when you pick up a book or tutorial on JavaScript is that these kinds of values are "primitive" values; in other words, they're definitely *not* objects. And yet, you'll quickly find out that in JavaScript, sometimes they *are* objects! So bend your mind a bit, and immerse yourself in the world of objects to learn how, in JavaScript, (almost) everything is an object in this installment of Head First JavaScript Programming Teasers (http://oreil.ly/1mvCjfE).
