Watch Daan’s presentation

Artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde (1979) explores the dawn of a new nature that is evolving from technological innovations. With projects ranging from fashion to architecture, he creates smart and social designs that instinctively interact with sound and movement. Roosegaarde’s remarkable works function as exploration of the dynamic relation between architecture, people, and technology. His sculptures, such as Dune and Intimacy, are tactilehigh-tech environments in which viewer and space become one. This connection, established between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls “techno-poetry”. Roosegaarde has won the Charlotte Köhler Award, Dutch Design Award, Design for Asia Award and China’s Most Successful Design Award. He has been the focus of exhibitions at the Tate Modern, the National Museum in Tokyo, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and various public spaces in Rotterdam and Hong Kong.

One of our speakers was Harry Webers, CEO of Dutch engineering firm Witteveen+Bos

Watch his presentation:

Harry Webers is CEO of Dutch engineering firm Witteveen+Bos since april 2003. After graduating (cum laude) in Sanitary Engineering at the Agricultural University Wageningen in February 1983, he joined Witteveen+Bos. Harry has held various positions in the company, including head of the branch office Maastricht (1986-1995) and the department Environment (1996-2006). In 2001 Witteveen+Bos launched the The Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology Award to mark the firm’s 55th anniversary. The award goes to a visual artist whose work unites the disciplines of art and technology in an exceptional manner and for whom engineering is far more than a means to an end. The award consists of a cash prize of €15,000, publication of a book dedicated to the winner and an exhibition of his/her work in the Bergkerk church in Deventer. Among the winners of the The Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology Award are Dick Raaijmakers, Geert Mul en Theo Jansen. 2012’s winner is Angelo Vermeulen.

Die schönsten Kunst-Apps

Die schönsten Kunst-Apps

Von Judith Horchert, Karlsruhe

App Art Awards: Das sind die Gewinner

Kunstgenuss? Dafür gibt es eine App. Mehrere sogar. Schon zum zweiten Mal hat das Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe den App Art Award verliehen. Jeweils 10.000 Euro gibt es für summende Buchstaben, elektrische Schafe und gefräßige Kugeln.

Auf verschiedenen Tablet-Computern zeigt das Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM) in Karlsruhe ein Dutzend Werke, die in der engeren Auswahl standen für den App Art Award 2012. Insgesamt sind 84 Apps eingereicht worden, aus 13 verschiedenen Ländern. Schon zum zweiten Mal wurde dieser Preis verliehen und gleichzeitig eine Ausstellung eröffnet, in der die Apps zu benutzen und dadurch erst zu bewundern sind. Denn das ist der Clou dieser jungen Kunstform: Das Werk entfaltet sich erst dadurch, dass es jemand in Gebrauch nimmt.

Bei der Gewinner-App des Künstlerischen Innovationspreises sieht das so aus: Der Nutzer zieht mit dem Finger auf dem Touchscreen eine graue Linie, auf der in bestimmten Abständen rote Punkte erscheinen. Lässt er die Linie los, erscheinen plötzlich Buchstaben, zunächst sind es Ms, die auf der ersten Spur entlangfahren. Treffen sie auf einen roten Punkt, werden sie hörbar, als summendes MMMM. Mit der zweiten Linie kommen Ns hinzu, auch sie werden auf jedem Punkt hörbar, bei der dritten sind es Os. “Konsonant” nennt sich die App, “eine kreative Erkundung von Buchstaben, Sound und Technologie”, heißt es in der Beschreibung. Erdacht hat sie der Medienkünstler und Musiker Jörg Piringer aus Wien, der unter anderem dadurch bekannt ist, dass er im ersten Wiener Gemüseorchester spielt.

Ars Electronica 2012 tickets now available

“If every crisis is also an opportunity, then what opportunities are we failing to take advantage of solely on account of our perplexity and our unwillingness to come to terms with the changes happening now?

What we need is a broader, more open-minded perspective that enables us to peer beyond the boundaries of our habitual ways of doing things, our specialized disciplines and our conventional ideologies, and that can also visualize the pluralism and the inherent contradictions of our modern, globally networked world. A new Big Picture that is no longer from a centralized point of view and isn’t projected out of the center of a global force, but is instead a patchwork of diverse positions.

Ars Electronica 2012 is bringing together models that can serve as paragons and best-practice examples from art and science that offer inspirational demonstrations of how an open-minded way of looking at a larger whole not only reveals more of it but also brings totally new insights to light. How can a Big Picture of our times be composed and what strategies are conducive to being able to see and take it.”

BMW Tate Live: Performance Room

Thursday 22 March – Sunday 30 September 2012

BMW Tate Live banner
Performances are streamed live on Tate’s YouTube Channel.

BMW Tate Live: Performance Room is a series of performances commissioned and conceived exclusively for the online space, and the first artistic programme created purely for live web broadcast.

The BMW Tate Live Performance Room invites four artists’ commissions in 2012.

The performances are only seen by online viewers. They take place in the Performance Room at Tate Modern in London and are streamed live on Tate’s YouTube Channel directly to your screen. You can discuss each work with other viewers and put questions directly to the artist or curator on Tate’s channels on YouTube, Google+, Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #BMWTateLive.

Each performance will be archived and available to view online at a later date.

This ground-breaking series is completely unlike anything Tate has done before. These live events will bring a global community together to simultaneously experience each artwork across the world.
