Marking the City

@ VOL 92 ON MAY 30, 2012

An impromptu and ad-libbed Tokyo fiction deriving meaning from a mundane observation -- street annotations and mysterious tags, both written and physically placed. It is imagined that these tags embed another layer of information into the city by casting invisible perimeters within which encoded experiences are left behind and felt by others through ubiquitous mobile / augmented-reality devices. Tokyo is remapped through visual and physical sensations that overlap, fade away, and are activated by the weather or proximity, and offer an ephemerality akin to Tokyo's ever changing urban fabric.

The Law of Least Resistance

@ VOL 99 ON JAN 23, 2013

As the newness wears off the New Year, our willpower has wained, and we wonder how we flawed humans are going to turn our hopes into reality. Permaculture designer Cecilia Macaulay has good news, learnt from her passive self-watering balcony garden. Water doesn't just go down. It only goes where it wants to, thats true. Yet you can influence water to go almost anywhere, anytime. All by itself. With the same force-free design principles, maybe you can influence yourself to do almost anything.

This presentation shows you how you can get an edible balcony garden to water itself, using 2000-year-old desert technology, by going with, not against, our all-to-human human nature.

Find out more about Cecilia's projects through her website and "Balcony of Dreams" blog

Inspirational Coincidences

@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

Lucid dreaming, intuition, augmented reality and satelitelaunching all at Aalborg #12

90 people attending in an attentive atmosphere and opened by 3D graphic Benny Mathiesen. This time he shared his thoughts, experiences and knowledge of lucid dreaming - fascinating and fun - so everybodys attension was caught. Bo Nicolaisen from Platform 4 talked of a collaboration between thr art & tech people in Aalborg, one of the worlds best animation schools situated in Viborg and Filmværkstedet in Århus - the Bemudacollaboration give artists opportunities to benefit from workshops, knowledge and projects from all tree places. Sandro Masai is both dancer, choreographer and educated from Aalborg University in art & technology. He's making an art project based on augmented reality - at a summer art event in july called Bunkerlove at Denmarks large west coast beaches, where bunkers from 2. worldwar still lie in the sand. Before the break Ellen Raunsmed is researching in intuition at the university and shared her knowledge and experiences from seminars held together with artists, philosophers and dancers. The break kept people chit-chatting and networking - among a bunch of cool women in rollerskates from Aalborg Rollerderby - and bly me it's like rugby ON ROLLERSKATES for women!!! The first slot after the break was taken by artist and a men who pocesses imense knowledge art critic Gorm Spaabæk. He is the man behind a project where Nordjyske - the local paper - hires artists to create i piece FOR the paper inspired by local stories from the area. Lars Ditlev Johansen is educated actor an directs a piece called "A walk in the dark" about meeting life and death - and the theaterpiece will also be part of Bunkerlove inviting the audience onto the beach at night and into the bunkers. He read beautiful pieces of the drama - for me a very moving moment. And then came the complete fun - in the name of PechaKucha variaty in content - there came a whole team of Rollerderbygirls presenting their passion for the game! Brilliant pianist and composer - art & technology student Dominik Blasko finished the evening both talking about composing, making different art installations AND playing one of his pieces - a beautiful dot to a wonderful evening.

A Beautiful Reality

"People rarely, if ever, made it into my images -- and when they did, it was a depiction of what they did, and never really a depiction of how they felt to me."
