  3. Automatic Cinema aims at an artistic audience. The software can be used for exhibitions or installations, where a variety of media are served on various screens and channels – syncronized or not. Since all media assets are stored in a database, Automatic Cinema is also useful for documentarists and researchers with a structural approach to their material. And last but not least, Automatic Cinema is open source and can be developed by anybody. Instead of cutting a bunch of videoclips the hard way, Automatic Cinema generates countless versions based upon predefined styles. Probably, you'll end up seeing a movie you've never been thinking of — serendipity in it's best way.

  4. [ 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. Our memory is dissipating. Hard drives only last five years, a webpage is forever changing and there’s no machine left that reads 15-year old floppy disks. Digital data is vulnerable. Yet entire libraries are shredded and lost to budget cuts, because we assume everything can be found online. But is that really true? For the first time in history, we have the technological means to save our entire past, yet it seems to be going up in smoke. Will we suffer from collective amnesia? This VPRO Backlight documentary tracks down the amnesiac zeitgeist starting at the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam, whose world-famous 250-year old library was lost to budget cuts. The 400.000 Books were saved from the shredder by Ismail Serageldin, director of the world-famous Library of Alexandria, who is turning the legendary library of classical antiquity into a new knowledge hub for the digital world. Images as well as texts risk being lost in this ‘Digital Dark Age’. In an old McDonald’s restaurant in Mountain View, CA, retired NASA engineer Dennis Wingo is trying to retrieve the very first images of the moon. Upstate New York, Jason Scott has founded The Archive Team, a network of young activists that saves websites that are at risk of disappearing forever. In San Francisco, we visit Brewster Kahle’s Internet Archive that’s going against the trend to destroy archives, and the Long Now Foundation, which has put the long-term back on the agenda by building a clock that only ticks once a year and should last 10,000 years, in an attempt to reconnect with generations thousands of years from now. Directed by Bregtje van der Haak / produced by VPRO Backlight, The Netherlands You can watch the Dutch episode here: http://tegenlicht.vpro.nl/afleveringe...

  7. In Reverse Perspective the expected visual rules are inverted, so close objects are small and far objects are big. This is not only true for whole objects, but their structure as well. So the near points of an object are closer together, relative to its far points, which gives the flared-out look of the buildings, and the scene as a whole.

  8. 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.

  10. Zimoun

    Sound Architectures, Sculptures & Installations
    Compilation Video V.3.1 / June 02, 2013

    Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun's minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.

  11. "The average life of a web page is about 100 days before it's either changed or deleted," says Kahle. "Even if it's supported by big companies: Google Video came down, Yahoo Video came down, Apple went and wiped out all the pages in Mobile Me." Capturing this transient web was Kahle's original mission for the Internet Archive when he founded it in 1996. Nearly two decades later, the 53-year-old compares his organization to a "Library of Alexandria, version two."

    That may be an understatement. In addition to hosting the Wayback Machine, an ever-growing collection of more than 400 billion copies of web pages, the Internet Archive has also expanded its services by providing millions of free digitized books, TV shows, movies, songs, documents, and software titles. Want to see what MotherJones.com looked like in 1996? Here you go. Are you a Deadhead in search of rare recordings? There are more than 9,000 to choose from. Remember when federal websites were closed for business during the government shutdown? They were still available thanks to the Internet Archive.

  12. 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.“

  13. « 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. »

    This video is about exploring the spatial qualities of RFID, visualised through an RFID probe, long exposure photography and animation. It features Timo Arnall of the Touch project and Jack Schulze of BERG. The problem and opportunity of invisibility RFID is still badly understood as an interactive technology. Many aspects of RFID interaction are fundamentally invisible; as users we experience two objects communicating through the ‘magic’ of radio waves. This invisibility is also key to the controversial aspects of RFID technology; once RFID antennas are hidden inside products or in environments, they can be invoked or initiated without explicit knowledge or permission. (See here for more on the invisibility of radio.) But invisibility also offers opportunities: the lack of touch is an enormous usability and efficiency leap for many systems we interact with everyday (hence the success of Oyster, Suica and Octopus cards). But there is also the ‘magic’ of nearness one of the most compelling experiential aspects of RFID. As designers we took this invisibility as a challenge. We needed to know more about the way that RFID technology inhabits space so that we could better understand the kinds of interactions that can be built with it and the ways it can be used effectively and playfully inside physical products.

  15. Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! is an American sketch comedy television series, created by and starring Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, which premiered February 11, 2007 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim comedy block[1] and ran until May 2010. The program features surrealistic and often satirical humor (at points anti-humor), public-access television–style musical acts, bizarre faux-commercials, and editing and special effects chosen to make the show appear camp.
