Alphabet Synthesis Machine

  #



Alphabet Synthesis Machine
Software by Golan Levin with Jonathan Feinberg and Cassidy Curtis

The Art21 Alphabet Synthesis Machine is an online artwork which allows visitors to create and breed personalized "nonsense alphabets"—coherent sets of abstract forms which might resemble the plausible writing systems of imaginary civilizations or unfamiliar societies. It is an aid to explorers of the liminal territory between familiarity and chaos. An interactive Java applet, the Machine invites
you to evolve the letterforms of a personalized "alien alphabet": the possible writing system of your own
imaginary civilization.

Openings for January '05 Show at 555

  #

This came to me via Joe Scott:

"i wanted to write to ask you if you'd want to be in a show i'm putting together.  it's going to be at the 555 gallery in detroit for january, 05.  i know it's kind of soon, but i if i get enough people together, we'd be able to make a good show.   up to 5 pieces, as big as you want them to be, and it's gonna cost about $10-15 for each person (because we have to pay for the space).   I would also like your help with getting more people involved.   i'd like to use outside circle as a tool to let more people know about this, but i'm having trouble using the message board, and i was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me out with that, and also spreading word of mouth would be awesome.  i was thinking that if all of our normal crew of 6 or 7 people invited one or two of their friends, we'd have plenty of pieces to show.  if people need to ship it in from somewhere far away, we can try to work out how to do that and keep the cost minimal.  so far, we've got the normal group -- travis, aaron, me, dorothy, tim lane, matt cygnet (probably), you (hopefully), jeremy couillard, chris t. (can't spell her last name),  and anyone else you'd like to invite, plus any of the occ people that want to show."

from Peter:

555 is a great gallery in Detroit, so this is a good opportunity if you want to exhibit in Motown.

paintings that paint themselves

  #

The Kresge Art Museum's current exhibition is one worth visiting- and it's only open until the end of the month (31.10.04). So hurry on over, if you haven't seen it yet!


           

There are twenty-four artists in Paintings That Paint Themselves, coming from many countries, though all but two live in the United States. They are reinventing painting for us once again in a host of new ways. Suddenly, young artists are excited about what the others are doing. They are visiting each others’ studios, sometimes even sharing secrets. They are experimenting, researching, and learning from and about new materials. There is joy in the artist’s studio as discoveries are made and ways found to speak through abstract matter. And the work is abstract – resolutely so. This is abstract expression without the handwriting, the tell-all gesture of the fifties; it is post-Minimal, post- Conceptual abstract expression – Mark Rothko without tears, Willem De Kooning’s whiplash line without a woman to use it on. We were ready to be excited by abstract painting again. Luckily the artists were ready for us.

The Exhibition website is all encompassing as well, detailing each artist and their work. Inspiring work!

Jin-Yo Mok and Gicheol Lee's Music Box

  #
Music Box is an art project by Jin-Yo Mok who worked with Gicheol Lee.  The music box is a modern take on a physical music boxes, but controlled by a computer.

The computer selects which lights are to be activated when the wheel is turned by hand.

"Where normally pins would pluck the music box's tines, instead photosensors register if an LED is activated or not, causing the sound to play."

"Users can draw any shape on a computer screen using a mouse, and the same shape of LEDs will light up on the the cylinder of the music box. Users then turn the crank handle and listen to the music they composed by drawing."

Music Box is currently at the Whitney Artport.

The WatershedWhile in Bristol I had a chance to visit Watershed - Britain's first "Media Centre." 

Located along the canals in an old warehouse district, they support creative content, the creative industries and independent film. 

Not only do they have labs, workshops, and an awesome cafe (with great food and free internet), but three theatres that show independent films. (Tammy and I caught The Story of the Weeping Camel)

dTroit to manchester

  #



Manchester's Urbis Museum, the museum of contemporary urban culture, presents dTroit, a tour of the art, music, culture and urban vibe of the city also known as Motown. 
Once a model of the modern industrial city, the collapse of the automobile industry, the 1967 race riots and the ensuing 'white flight' from the city to the suburbs gave birth to a centre of urban decay and desolation. Within this failed utopia a new generation of artists and musicians developed. They are the cultural product of the city affectionately known as 'Motown', 'The Motor City', 'Techno City', or simply 'The D' and their work explores the unique urban environment, social history and cultural memory of the city of Detroit.
DTroit is curated by Trevor Schoonmaker.
The exhibition originated at
Gigantic Artspace, New York, and has been expanded for Urbis, Manchester.
DTroit features work by: Susan Cook, Doug Coombe, Mark Dancey, Andrew Dosunmu, Thom Klepach, Tyree Guyton, Kenjii, Thomas Rapai, Kyong Park and Mark Powell.
The exhibition also features a playlist of over twenty hours of music which has come out of Detroit in the last forty years, researched and assembled by legendary music journalist Mike Rubin. Tickets £5 Concessions £3.50

Altered books...on purpose and unintentionally

  #

In 2001, staff at the San Francisco library found that over 600 books on gay/lesbian issues, women's issues and HIV/AIDS were destroyed beyond repair (and the person responsible was charged with a hate crime). Rather than trash them, the damaged books were sent to artists around the world "in the hope of creating art out of this destructive act" and the exhibit was held in May.  Slate.com has a slide show of some of the pieces at http://slate.msn.com/id/2098846/slideshow/2099007/fs/0/entry/2099001/

Dinners & Nightmares by Marlene Russum Scott

It reminded me of an exhibit held at Michigan State's Kresge Art Museum a couple of years ago from Ediciones Vigia, a Matanzas, Cuba publishing company "which brings together poets, writers, illustrators and designers. The small group of about fifteen people uses recycled and natural materials to create handmade books. Only 200 copies of each book are made, all produced at the same time, with each binding and text element added one-by-one."  I'll admit, though,that pictures don't really do the works justice. There is also an International Society of Altered Book Artists which does this sort of thing as well (www.alteredbookartists.com)

Duane Hanson: Photographs, 1977-1995

  #

This exhibit is open June 5 - September 26, 2004:

"Duane Hanson was actually not a great photographer.  He was a great sculptor who created unbelievably realistic life-size sculptures of average Americans.  The photos are his "sketches," used to create the sculptures.  They are on display for the first time ever outside New York.

This exhibit offers a rare window on Hanson's working methods and his sculptural journey into hyper-realism.  More than 100 images represent the sum of his work and help structure an investigation on the relationship between photography, sculpture, art and life.

"Bodybuilder" (pictured here) was created in 1989, and is part of the Cranbrook Art Museum Collection.  Also on display during the photography exhibit is "Businessman Reading" (1983), on loan from the Collection of Gilbert and Lila Silverman."

Celebrating 25 Years of Ars Electronica

  #

As part of Ars Electronica’s 25th anniversary festivities, a series of events entitled “Digital Avant-Garde: Celebrating 25 Years of Ars Electronica” will be held from May 21 to July 18 in New York.

The American Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a series of installations selected from around 300 works that have been featured since 1987.

For those of you in New York (especially those who enjoy interactive digital art) you'll not want to miss these.

For a sampling, visit the Installations section on the AMMI website.

An example:

"RE:MARK presents the fiction that spoken language casts visible shadows. Using phoneme recognition technology and real-time computer animation, "RE:MARK" converts its user's vocalizations into whimsically animated letters and shapes that appear to float upwards from the shadow of the speaker's head. Visitors can also manipulate these forms directly, using the shadow of their own body. When a phoneme is recognized with sufficient confidence, it is spelled out on the installation's display. If the user's sound is not recognized by the system's classifier, then an abstract shape is generated instead, based directly on the timbral characteristics of the user's utterance. The result is a playful illusion, in which visitors become actors in a shadow world of reactive cartoon language."
