  2. Satellite Collections
    digital prints

    You can see from pole to pole and across oceans and continents and you can watch it turn and there's no strings holding it up, and it's moving in a blackness that is almost beyond conception.
    -Eugene Cernan, an astronaut on the Apollo 17, on seeing the Earth from space

    In all of these prints, I collect things that I've cut out from Google Satellite View-- parking lots, silos, landfills, waste ponds. The view from a satellite is not a human one, nor is it one we were ever really meant to see. But it is precisely from this inhuman point of view that we are able to read our own humanity, in all of its tiny, repetitive marks upon the face of the earth. From this view, the lines that make up basketball courts and the scattered blue rectangles of swimming pools become like hieroglyphs that say: people were here.

    The alienation provided by the satellite perspective reveals the things we take for granted to be strange, even absurd. Banal structures and locations can appear fantastical and newly intricate. Directing curiosity toward our own inimitably human landscape, we may find that those things that are most recognizably human (a tangle of carefully engineered water slides, for example) are also the most bizarre, the most unlikely, the most fragile.

  4. Echo Nest Remix is the Internet Synthesizer. Make amazing things from music, automatically.

    Turn any music or video into Python or JavaScript code.

    Echo Nest Remix lets you remix, re-edit, and reimagine any piece of music and video, automatically and algorithmically.

    Remix has done the following: played a song forever, walkenized and cowbellized hundreds of thousands of songs in a week, reversed basically everything, beat matched two songs, split apart DJ mixes by their individual tracks, made new kinds of video mashups, corrected sloppy drumming, synced video to a song, transitioned between multiple covers of the same song, made a cat play piano, and taught dogs to play dubstep. Check out all the examples here.

    Remix is available as an open source SDK for you to use, for Mac, Linux, and Windows:

    Install for Python: sudo pip install remix. Full installation details, packages for Mac and Windows, and complete Python documentation are here.

    Try JavaScript: Test out remix.js here.

    Download JavaScript: remix.js. Full JavaScript install details and documentation are here.

  5. [ About Re:Sound Bottle -second mix- ]
    Experimental sound medium that transforms recorded everyday sounds into music

    [ Concept ]
    • Allows anyone to create music using sounds from daily life
    • Communication that arises from intuitive sound interaction

    The conventional way of experiencing music is usually through existing technologies such as the ipod or the radio. However, this style of experiencing music takes place in a given form; is static and as a result leaves us dissatisfied.

    To really enjoy music, we need to find music through sounds around us. We need to stop being tied down with new gadgets that provide the music for us, but to search for music ourselves.

    A series of ideas like these lead me to create this device.

    This creation's main concept is to record sounds from daily life. It is the concept of ‘collecting sounds in a bottle’. You choose the sounds collected in the bottle. Using everyday sounds as a musical component establishes a new understanding of the sounds we listen to everyday. By collecting your own sampling of sounds, you encounter a unique piece of music that can be experienced only once.

    This device will bring a smile to anyone, as many will be able to experience the charm of music, leading them to turn music into something they love and adore.

  6. Why are some ideas, processes and products (or, memes) popular, and others not? And - What is the unit of culture? For that matter: What is `Culture'? This short book synthesizes the Systems Model of Creativity (Csikszentmihalyi 1988, 2014) and Evolutionary Epistemology (Campbell 1974) to explain why some things are popular, and defines and describes the structure of the Meme, the unit of culture (Dawkins 1976).

  7. All of the English dialogue in "Star Wars", split into words, and sorted alphabetically.

    Fun facts:
    The word "lightsaber" only appears once in this film.
    There are 43m5s of spoken English, 81m39s of other.
    The most common word is "the", of course, said 368 times.
    The word with most screen time is "you", at 52.56 seconds.
    There are 1695 different words, and 11684 total words.
    The longest words are "responsibility," "malfunctioning", "worshipfulness", and "identification", all 14 letters.

    I labeled the words manually (!) using some software I wrote specifically for the purpose.

    This is the Special Edition to troll Han-shot-first purists. Everyone knows the orig is the most legit.

  8. Videogrep is a python script that searches through dialog in videos and then cuts together a new video based on what it finds. Basically, it’s a command-line “supercut” generator. The code is here on github.

    The script searches through a video’s associated subtitle file (which needs to be in the same folder as the video, in standard .srt format), identifies timestamps for the dialog, and then uses the wonderful moviepy library to generate the new final cut.

  9. Tausende Gangnam-Style- und Harlem-Shake-Videos auf Youtube sind der Beleg: Remix ist heute ein Massenphänomen. War das 20. Jahrhundert noch geprägt von zentralisierter Kulturproduktion, laden heute Computer, Videohandys und Internet zu kreativer und öffentlicher Interaktion mit Kulturgütern ein.

    Viele der erfolgreichsten Videos auf Youtube und Facebook profitieren davon, dass andere NutzerInnen eigene Versionen von ihnen erstellen und so zur Bekanntheit des Originals beitragen. Die Bandbreite reicht dabei von verwackelten Handy-Videos bis hin zu aufwendigen Remixversionen. Sich für die Erstellung von Werken bei Vorhandenem zu bedienen, ist kein neues Phänomen. Der Blogger Malte Welding illustrierte diesen Umstand einmal unter Verweis auf Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, der Bach-Fugen bearbeitete und die den Fugen voranstehenden Präludien mit Eigenkompositionen ersetzte, die für Streicher geeignet waren: „Er remixte Bach. Er mashte ihn, er fledderte die toten Noten und schuf etwas Neues.“

  10. « Claude Levi-Strauss : les artistes bricoleurs se retrouvent face à ensemble d’objets hétéroclites qu’ils interrogent pour comprendre et imaginer ce que chacun d’eux pourrait signifier. Chaque élément représente un ensemble de relations à la fois concrètes et virtuelles, ce sont des opérateurs. La particularité de ces objets est qu’ils ont déjà servis et les possibilités de leur ré-emploi demeurent toujours limitées par ce qui subsiste en eux de cette histoire passée. Leur usage originel fait d’eux des éléments pré-contraints et ouvrés ; ils ont donc été travaillés par un précédent auteur qui leur a attribué une signification précise et soumise à l’œuvre qu’il réalisait. Le second auteur s’affairera ainsi à démonter cet ensemble de signification afin d’en créer de nouvelles. Yann Beauvais et J-M Bouhour confirment, les deux lois fondamentales de détournement sont : - la perte d’importance allant jusqu’à la déperdition du sens premier de chaque élément autonome détourné, et en même temps - l’organisation d’un nouvel ensemble signifiant qui confère à chaque élément sa nouvelle portée. »

  15. How You See It layers a single story as told by three different stations (CBS, NBC and ABC). This layering has been created with the idea of "fugue" in mind. That is, a procedure of imitative counterpoint. What How You See It hopes to illuminate is how news broadcasts, far from daring reporting or varied approaches has regressed to pantomiming each other, creating a cacophony of sound and images that are no different from one another. Our news media landscape normally described as three giants is really one in disguise.
