PUBLIC, seminar and video event in Bergen

Wednesday 6th of November: 18.00- 22.00 ( including pause with serving of soup)
Theme: Video based art in public spaces.
Place: TagTeam Studio, Møllendalsveien 17. www.tag-team.no

TagTeam and DOPPLER has the pleasure to invite to an evening seminar concerning video based and temporary art in public spaces. The seminar will discuss questions concerning the use and availability for the public in relevant to different types of public commissions, temporary screenings as well as archiving and new arenas for viewing . As a part of the seminar Doppler will show one of Tania Ruiz Gutierrez video works outdoors in the area.

Participants:
Tania Ruiz Gutierrez (FR)
Jørgen Blitzner (NO)
Anne Marthe Dyvi (NO)

Tania Ruiz Gutierrez ( french/colombian visual artist living in Paris) will presents her video work ‘Elsewhere’, video installation at Malmö Central Station( Sweden) . Elsewhere is a monumental moving panorama composed of 46 projections, deployed over 360 linear meters. This is the largest permanent video artwork in Europe. http://www.elsewhere.name/

Jørgen Blitzner : Jørgen Blitzner is adviser for the public commissions for Light Rail project in Bergen. We have invited him to present finished art works along the light rail, ideas and plans for the next two stages with future visions.

Anne Marte Dyvi: Anne Mathe Dyvi will be presenting work related to the National Archives for video, www.videokunstarkivet.org How can we collect, maintain, make available and facilitate video for the future?

Video talk: Talks on future thoughts on the medias placement in public spaces.

Visual Artist Tania RUIZ GUTIERREZ trained as a film-maker. She initially focused mainly in video projections, her works now include objects and mixed-media installations, which have appeared in several international exhibitions and festivals. Public space is a central subject of her artistic research and practice. Main works on this field are GardeTemps – a light, video based, permanent sculpture for the City of Vancouver – and Elsewhere, a monumental permanent video installation for the new Malmö Central Station, opened in December 2010. She currently teaches at the Art Department of The University of Paris VIII.

Elsewhere is a multi-projection video art work which seeks to transform the reinforced concrete landscape of the Malmö C underground station into a wide open space. Through a projection device that evokes the perceptual experience from the train, the viewers will be invited to lose themselves in images during their wait. The projections acting as windows, the station itself becomes a train that loses its spatial and temporal rails, itinerant across the earth.

CFP: Live Algorithms 2014

2013-10-29

A symposium of the AISB-50 annual convention to be held at Goldsmiths, University of London, on April 2nd, 2014 (tbc)
http://www.aisb.org.uk/events/aisb14

The convention is organised by the Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour (AISB)
http://www.aisb.org.uk/

OVERVIEW

LAM is an inter-disciplinary nexus for musicians (computer and acoustic), computer and cognitive scientists, interaction specialists, philosophers, psychologists and all others who are intent on pursuing and contributing to the goal of an autonomous machine improvisor.

The live algorithm interacts with human performers by listening to contributions in its musical environment, preparing musical material that has at least an element of originality and appropriateness, and delivering this material back into the environment. The intention is to (a) provide a meaningful experience of interacting with a machine intelligence and (b) explore novel musical spaces. The aim is not to simulate the role of human musicians but to find new possibilities for musical expression. The quest is driven by algorithmic processes and models of cognition, creativity and interaction.

The symposium will take place in a single day during the AISB symposium and will consist of a session of presentations of papers, a demonstration session, and an evening concert.

Further details are available at the LAM 2014 website: https://sites.google.com/site/livealgorithms/

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Any research topic that contributes to the Live Algorithm agenda is welcome; for example

Machine listening/analysis
Sound synthesis
Generative music
Music Information Retrieval
Human/Computer interaction
Theory and practice of improvisation
Models of human communication
Computational creativity
Machine consciousness
Interaction design

Launch of the new publication “Hybrids”: Eamon O'Kane in dialogue with Barbara Bader

2013-10-24

Bergen Academy of Art and Design are pleased to launch the new publication “Hybrids” by Eamon O’Kane, Professor of Visual Art and Artistic Research Leader at Department of Fine Art. For the occasion of launching the publication Eamon O’Kane will be in dialogue with Dr. Barbara Bader. The discussion takes place Wednesday October 30th at 4pm at Litteraturhuset in Bergen.

Hybrids_cover

The publication “Hybrids” presents two bodies of work that has ran parallel in O’Kanes artistic work. The first body of work uses his parents’ house, the house he grew up in, as its main subject. The second body of work examines among other things the legacy of Friedrich Fröbel on modern society.

The publication comprises three texts and a rich photographic documentation of his work. In the first text Eamon O’Kane contextualises several strands within his art practice to reflect on his most current artwork and how it relates to contemporary society. In an interview researcher and writer Gideo Fink Shapiro questions Eamon O’Kane about how architecture and design are adressed in relation to sources of inspiration in O’Kane’s artwork. Dr. Angelica Nollert examines how the artworks relate to Eamon O’Kane’s earlier practice and situates them in relation to contemporary art with references to relational artwork and the history of interactive installations in art.

About the Participants
Eamon O’Kane is Professor in Visual Art at Department of Fine Art at Bergen Academy of Art and Design (2011-). O’Kane exhibits widely and is the recipient of many awards and scholarships including the Taylor Art Award, The Tony O’Malley Award and a Fulbright Award.
