Lecture (020, March 28): Materials, Techniques, Recipes – Where History of Science and Art Technology Meet

The departments of Conservation & Restoration and of Art History of the UvA invite you to the lecture

Materials, Techniques, Recipes  Where History of Science and Art Technology Meet

by prof. dr. Sven Dupré on Friday 28th of March, at 3.15 PM in the Doelenzaal van de University Library (UB), Singel 425 Amsterdam.

Sven Dupré is the research director of the project Art and Knowledge in Pre-Modern Europe at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin. This research group investigates the diverse contributions of artists to the development of knowledge. (see http://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/en/staff/members/dupre).

Recent initiatives to bridge the worlds of art and the sciences undertaken at the University of Amsterdam and elsewhere, make it opportune that prof. Dupré explains and presents the scope and results of his innovating international project. Even more so because of the plans to establish an exchange and other forms of collaboration between the UvA and the Max Planck Institute.

Drinks are served after the lecture.

firestarters the series: #03 Museum of the Future

“De derde docu van de reeks firestarters | the series gaat over de betekenis van ‘nieuwe media’ ontwikkelingen en technologische innovaties voor musea.

firestarters en Discovery Channel presenteren firestarters the series, een reeks van zes korte documentaires die verkent hoe de mobiele revolutie creatieve industrieën verandert. De serie grasduint in de wereld van fotografie, muziek, kunst, film, mode en media. Welke innovators zetten de toon voor een toekomst waarin nieuwe technologieën aan de basis liggen van creatief pionierswerk?

#03 Museum of the future 
Museum of the future verkent de veranderende rol van musea. De grote rol van nieuwe media in het dagelijks leven vraagt om nieuwe vertelwijzen. Interactiviteit, publieksparticipatie, Do-It-Yourself en een unieke beleving worden steeds belangrijker. Het Van Gogh museum loopt voorop in die trends. In het lab worden nieuwe technologieën ingezet om de werkwijze van de meesterschilder in kaart te kunnen brengen en in het museum leren bezoekers Van Gogh kennen door te spelen met mobiele devices.

Verder volgen we de organisatie van de Amsterdamse Museumnacht, interaction-designer Lotte Meijer en augmented-reality kunstenaar Sander Veenhof. Lotte pionierde met de eerste mobiele audiotour ter wereld en Sander trok aandacht met zijn ‘virtuele guerilla-expo’ in het MoMa. Hoe zien de creatieve voorlopers van nu het museum van de toekomst? Ontdek het in deze docu.

firestarters the series is een uniek samenwerkingsproject van Discovery Channel Benelux en firestarters by Vodafone. In deze documentaireserie worden de verhalen verteld van creatieve voorlopers, jonge ondernemingen en innovatieve projecten. firestarters bezoekt Unseen, Amsterdam Dance Event, Museumnacht, IDFA en Amsterdam Fashion Week, waar mobiele technologie nieuwe ideeën uitlokt of tot wasdom brengt. firestarters | the series is niet alleen te zien via firestarters.nl, maar ook via www.yourdiscovery.com/nl/web/firestarters en dagelijks op Discovery Channel.

Your Daily Victory Boogie Woogie

Internet is een medium dat door de literatuur en de essayistiek nog amper verkend is. Dat wil zeggen, er verschijnen inmiddels wel veel verhalen en essays op internet, maar die verschillen niet fundamenteel van wat er op papier is gedrukt. Daar gaat verandering in komen. Samen met game­designstudio Hubbub (whatsthehubbub.nl) brengt De Gids in april de literaire internetgame Your Daily Victory Boogie Woogie online (www.gidsgame.nl).”

DIY Bioprinting

This looks like a must-have for our Open Wetlab. You can build one for the incredibly low cost of USD$ 150. Simply acquire the necessary parts and follow all the assembly steps. This hack involves combining parts from a leftover inkjet printer, used CD drive, inkShield and an Arduino to control the device. After completion, you’ll be able to print living cells in 2D patterns, as you can see above.

Unfortunately there is no Z-axis on this machine, but we imagine that would introduce spectacular complexities beyond the machine itself: What 3D living structures would you print? How do you model them? How do you store and deliver multiple kinds of cells required for complex living structures? And so on.

Nevertheless, it’s a real BioPrinter and you can have one on your desk. Be a pioneer.

The Clipperton Project

The Clipperton Project invited a group of 20 artists and scientists, from 8 different countries, on a 3 week journey to this isolated French atoll in March 2012. The project uses Clipperton (and the other locations visited as part of our multidisciplinary expedition series) as a springboard from which to approach challenging debates relating to issues of international relevance.

SONIC ARCHEOLOGY LAB AND WORKSHOP BY MARTIN HOWSE

Sonic archeology, essentially, is the exploratory probing of phenomena through sonic amplification, creating audible maps of otherwise un-detectable events in the natural world. Examples range from the early phonographic experiments of Thomas Edison to the more paraphysical realm of EVP (electronic voice phenomena).

This hands-on workshop aims to equip the sonic archaeologist with a range of DIY techniques for forensic examination of the material and immaterial. A series of experimental situations will be established: probing natural micro worlds and the paraphysical, investigation through audible excitation, transformation and detection (ultrasound, infrasound, interference, light, surface playback, electrochemistry). The workshop will equally examine classical techniques of EVP (electronic voice phenomena) as well as new practices suggested by these strategies of detection.

Dates: Dec 8-9, 2012
Time: 11:00 – 18:00 (each day)
Cost: €70 (includes materials)
Location: STEIM, Achtergracht 19, 1017WL Amsterdam
Maximum Participants: 15

TodaysArt wants your trash!

The TodaysArt Festival is looking for unwanted household items for a special project on the Spuiplein. The German architect and artist collective Raumlaborberlin will build a huge pavilion out of all the collected stuff. The pavilion, called ‘The Vortex’ will be created from old household items discarded by the people of The Hague. The ‘Vortex’ will also incorporate furniture from cultural institutions that will cease to exist after 2012 due to the budget cuts by the Dutch government. The building resembles a black hole, a vortex that draws everything in, serving as a symbol for the transient nature of our society. The construction will be realized in collaboration with Refunc from The Hague, which already proved that you can build all sorts of fantastic things from trash during previous editions of TodaysArt.

The Vortex will host the Pip Bar and a podium where you can dance until midnight to the music of various live acts and DJs. From Wednesday 12 September until Sunday 16 September, you can bring your unwanted household items to the TodaysArt containers on the Turfmarkt, opposite the Albert Heijn. Do you want your old table or closet to become part of a phenomenal work of art? Then drop your stuff off this week!

Ideas Waiting to Happen zoekt technici en creatieven

http://www.ideaswaitingtohappen.nl/

“Met veel plezier kondigen we de tweede serie aan van Ideas Waiting To Happen (IWTH) in Oktober. IWTH brengt creatieve en technische professionals en geselecteerde studenten bijeen om nieuwe (zakelijke of artistieke) toepassingen te ontwikkelen voor nieuwe techologieën:

  • Augmented Reality
  • The Internet of Things
  • The Quantified  Self

In oktober organiseren we vier bijeenkomsten: drie dagen met lezingen en brainstorm sessies en een laatste pitchdag. Drie teams met de beste concepten worden beloond met een geldprijs, technische ondersteuning en publiciteit. Kijk om een indruk te krijgen naar het verslag en de lijst deelnemers van de vorige editie.

We zijn op zoek naar creatieven en technici die graag samenwerken met andere disciplines. Er zijn drie inspiratie/brainstorm dagen (6, 13, 20 oktober) en een pitch dag (31 oktober). Als je niet mee kunt doen met de pitches, ben je nog steeds welkom bij een of meer andere dagen, om mee te denken en anderen te helpen op weg naar hun pitch. In ruil voor je bijdrage, bieden we inspirerende lezingen, contact met interessante denkers en doeners, gratis lunch en natuurlijk de kans om je idee te realiseren.”

Medialab Prado: Interactivos?

Interactivos? is a research and production platform for the creative and educational uses of technology, focused on the collective creation using open hardware and open software.  Its goal is to experiment with the use of electronics and software for artistic, design and educational projects, thus contributing to the development of communities of cultural producers in this field.

Interactivos? events are a hybrid between a production workshop, a seminar and an showcase. A space for reflection, research, and collaborative work is created, in which proposals selected by an international open call are developed and then displayed. The process is open to the public from beginning to end.
Interactivos? is not based on a traditional workshop model or the typical teacher-student relationship where the experts teach and a group of students learns. The Interactivos? model involves an exchange of information among workshop participants. In a setting focused on production, meeting, debate and collective learning, several tutors serve as conceptual and technical advisors for the trans-disciplinary working groups developing each of the proposals.

Since the platform was formed in 2006, Interactivos? events have been held all over the world and served as a catalyst for an international network of collaborations and contacts among local and international agents.
