HYPERTEMPORALITY ANIMATIONS

PETER BALDES

2004-Ongoing

Hypertemporality Animations are derived from simple, short, gif animations. These animations are then sliced into hundreds of smaller animations and placed in an html table. Due to browser inconsistencies and network deficiencies, the pieces of the original image arrive in your browser out of phase, and a dynamic new image is created. I encourage viewers to look at these pages with different browsers and to reload the pages to uncover different image possibilities within this system.

Peter Baldes is a new media artist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Painting and Printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University. He received his M.F.A. in Electronic Integrated Arts from Alfred University in 2001.

 

15x15

RICHARD VICKERS

2006

In 1968 Andy Warhol stated that; ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes’. Using Warhol’s statement as a premise, 15x15 advances the statement into the 21st century; with new media technology anyone and everyone can be world famous....for 15 seconds. Anyone can contribute to the piece using a standard mobile camera phone that can capture video, and can send video clips directly from their camera phone using MMS (Multimedia Message Service), via email or upload from your personal computer to the online database http://www.15x15.org or email me@15x15.org The clips should be the standard video setting for a cameraphone, 176 x 144 and can be longer than 15 seconds but will be reduced to that length, participants can send as many clips as they wish. The clips can be portraits, experiential, vignettes, experimental, anything within reason, from the banal to the downright bizarre! In the 21st century art is being fundamentally realigned for anyone and everyone. 15x15 is a homage to Warhol, a realisation of the artistic utilisation of new media technology and the democratisation of art in the age of digital production.

Vickers is a Senior Lecturer in New Media at the Hull School of Art & Design, United Kingdom. He previously worked as a freelance photographer and designer, before becoming interested in the possibilities of interactive multimedia in 1994.The emerging digital technologies had an immediate impact on his work as a photographer and he was an early exponent of the ‘digital darkroom’. He gained industry practice as a multimedia producer, working on a broad range of websites and interactive multimedia projects for commercial clients and arts organisations, before moving into lecturing full time. His research interests include new media design and the impact of digital technology on the photographic image, both still and moving. Richard is a practicing new media artist, multimedia producer and design consultant.

 

CITYSNAPPER_5 [Berlin]

OLIVIER VANDERAA

2006

The CITYSNAPPER_X project is a sociological and visual approach of main western cities that leads, during a month, to a daily collection of images and city dweller's statements – thus gradually constituting an inter-subjective view of the city – which can be followed on the internet through a poly-navigation system, both hypertextual (http) and cartographic.
Confronting the personal view of the photographer to the relationship in-between the city dwellers and their city, the project aims to show a mapping of the social context, and give bases for its analysis. The bipolarity of Citysnapper is a result of an interest for the urban phenomenon, considered under two different aspects:- the city as a physical construction, translated into photographs, - the city as a mental – and even imaginary – construction that city dwellers build from their daily contact with it, translated into interviews. The web interface weaves then bonds between these data using a system of poly-navigations, so as to give account of the opinions and glances of the inhabitants on their urban reality. 

Born in Belgium in 1962, Olivier Vanderaa studied sound engineering at the I.N.S.A.S. school of Cinematic art in the Belgian capital. He studied Photography at the Ecole de Photo de la Ville de Bruxelles and web design at St-Louis Informatique. He undertakes in 2002 a reflection on web interfaces and transmission of information through the Internet. Vanderaa’s grounding in these diverse, but related, fields has enabled him to work with both sound and images. The main theme of his work is contemporary western society, and particularly urban structures and cultures, viewed from a critical and poetic viewpoint, leaning on a documentary base. The question of space transcription through photographic and digital medias, the place of probable in the representation of reality, as well as the participation of the audiences in  the creative process, are also among themes that subtend his work. Vanderaa’s work has been shown in many venues since 1997, and forms part of the permanent collection of the Communauté Française de Belgique.

 

SUPERPOSITIONS

POSITION

2006

Superpositions is an audio-visual click able collage made with night tripping, urban explorations, cycling's machines...The evolutive's object is a construction based on randoms games and audiences interactions. The relation with the creation can be very active or else contemplative, both attitude generating a new perception where the spectator is not always really sure that he has been responsible or not of that sound, of this new picture. When the visitor takes time to explore, he can found two ways to navigate. Each  construction has a door, a linear link that allows him to go to one universe to another. There is also a die, loaded on top level that allows to navigate randomly to one of the sixth faces of the proposition.

The collective Position is based in Marseilles France, created by three persons : Remy Rivoire, a visual artist, who works around the abstracts representations of the world : maps, mechanicals drawings...Renaud Vercey, a multimedia director who creates interactive videos for the scene (theatre, dance) or the web and Bruno Voillot, who is a social worker and who conceived the sound design and made for this creation, huge documentations and researches on the web . For this project the collective has been helped by Jean-François Riviere for the action script code and by Yann Norry for the soundscape.

 

{TRANSCRIPTION}

MICHAEL TAKEO MAGRUDE

2006

{transcription} examines the mediated histories generated by today’s news corporations and reflects upon our collective preoccupation with real-time information generation, distribution and access. Given the developed world’s countless network structures and our current state of data saturation, has news media evolved beyond mere information source and become a new form of cultural stimulant? The artwork is generated from headline news items sampled from the live
internet news service of the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation). Each article is deconstructed into its basic image, text and audio components. This material is then algorithmically recombined into an aesthetic entity in which the informational content is still partially discernable.

Michael Takeo Magruder is an American artist based in the UK deploying New and Technological Media within Fine Art contexts. His artworks have been showcased in over 200 exhibitions and 25 countries, including venues such as the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, EAST International 2005, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau. His works are regular inclusions in international New Media festivals, such as Cybersonica, CYNETart, FILE, Filmwinter, SeNef, Siggraph and Split. His artistic practice has been funded directly by Arts Council England, The National Endowment for the Arts, USA and numerous public galleries both within the UK and abroad. He is also recognised for his on-line arts practice and has been commissioned by leading portals for Internet Art such as Turbulence.org and Soundtoys.net. Artistically, his current interests concern the simultaneous utilisation and dissection of new technology as a means to explore the formal structures and conceptual paradigms of the digital realm. He seeks to create artworks in which there are no divisions between technologies, aesthetics, and concepts
