Federico Díaz: outside itself [it Venice]

Federico Díaz: outside itself at the Veniice Biennale :: June 4 – September 30, 2011 :: Opening: June 4; 6:00 pm :: Nappa 90, Arsenale Novissimo, Venice.

Federico Díaz, acclaimed Prague-based artist, is creating a self-replicating, site-specific sculptural installation shaped by viewer-inspired data that gives new meaning to the term “going viral.” Imagine thousands of black spheres morphing according to changes in ambient light generated by the fluid interactivity of viewers. A mathematical program enables two robots to build, and together, arrange about 2,000 5-centimeter-diameter balls every 12 hours. Continue reading

“Afflator” by Nick Knouf

Afflator — by Nick Knouf — breathes upon the conditions of today’s robotic creatures that are pulled into the muck of mimesis. To have a robot that is spoken to in natural language, that walks in a bipedal fashion, is the research that is valorised. Afflator deforms these conditions to suggest that the robotic form does not need to resemble anything we have seen before, that the means of engagement with a robot can be something other than traditional language and movement. Draping from the gallery ceiling and extending along the floor in a wave of fabric, Afflator unfolds onto contemporary robotics research to suggest other ethico-political options for engagement with the robotic other.

Extending from Afflator is a tube with an attached mask, worn by the gallery visitor to create a machinic assemblage of human and creature. Continue reading

Live Stage: NomadicMILK [ng Ikoyi]

NomadicMILK :: Opening: November 5, 2010; 6:00 – 9:00 pm :: Artist Talk: November 11; 2:00 pm :: African Artists’ foundation HQ, 54 Raymond Njoku street, Off Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Nigeria :: rsvp: omotayo.a (at) africanartists.org.

NomadikMilk, a project by visual artist, Esther Polak, focuses on tracing the mobility of milk in the Nigerian landscape. She does this by following the nomadic Fulani of Nigeria, as they transport milk in comparison to that of truck drivers hired by PEAK milk, a prominent brand in the country. The trail is mapped with the help of a… GPS system, following which a specially designed robot creates a finely drawn sand map in the ground. Polak spent three years working on this body of work, which tells two stories of milk – truck drivers who transport Peak Milk throughout Nigeria, and nomadic herdsmen who travel through the country with their cattle.

Robot Dreams [at Graz]

[Image: Maria from “Metropolis,” Director: Fritz Lang, 1927. Film still, Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung.] Robot Dreams :: October 9, 2010 – February 20, 2011 :: Kunsthaus Graz, Lendkai 1, A–8020 Graz, Austria.

Robots are no longer found just on the factory floor or as highly developed imaginary creatures in science-fiction stories. They are moving into our homes, taking to the water or the air, optimizing artificial limbs, helping autistic children and surveying fields. But how do computer-controlled processes work in comparison with our brain? How much of our supposed human freedom of thought is actually autonomous and not just the logical consequence of neuronal activity? Continue reading
