(talk) Vortrag – Artist’s Talk / 24.01.2018: Sheri Wills

Sheri Wills – “What does light remember?”

Vortrag – Artist’s Talk / 24.01.2018

  • Die Künstlerin Sheri Wills stellt sich und ihre Arbeiten vor.
  • 24.01.2018, 18 Uhr
  • Giesserei (Raum 1.16.070), Am Speicher XI 8, Bremen

DER VORTRAG FINDET IN DER GIESSEREI STATT. / THE LECTURE WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE GIESSEREI. (Room 1.16.070)

And there will be vegan brownies, vegan tarte/Flammkuchen, vegan dips, vegetables and some wine for free. And beer for „Chateau LU”-prices.

“As a small child, looking at the stars, I wondered: if light from a star takes so long to get here, what does it remember of its journey? How is it changed by its travel? Where does light go, after it can no longer be seen?” These are a child’s questions, but scientist, Dr. Lene Vestergaard Hau, is working on stopping and transporting light, and Dr. Valentina Caprara Vivoli is working to make engtangled photons visible to the human eye. Sheri Wills’s artistic research explores metaphorical questions about the material nature of captured light in terms of its capacity to hold memories and illuminate erased landscapes. Light is physical material, while the play of light and shadows (cinema) creates an illusion of reality – and one can pass a hand right through it.
Sheri Wills is an artist whose work is based in film, video performance, and installation. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including one-person shows at the Director’s Lounge in Berlin, the Robert Beck Memorial Cinema in NYC, and The International Experimental Cinema Exposition. Her films have been screened at venues including the London Film Festival, the International Film Festival in Rotterdam, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is included in the Rizzoli book, Sonic Graphics: Seeing Sound, by Matt Woolman. Her collaborations include live video projects with music composed by Jan Jirásek, Charles Norman Mason, Bright Sheng, and Ofer Ben-Amots and video performances with music ensembles, including the NYC choral group, Khorikos, the Providence String Quartet, Luna Nova New Music Ensemble, and Ensemble QAT in Montreal, at venues including Roulette in Brooklyn, the Firehouse Space in Bushwick, and the Czech Center in NYC. She is a Professor in the department of Film/Animation/Video at the Rhode Island School of Design. She lives in New York City.

(talk) Monday, Nov. 27. Boris Müller on Interactivity

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,
dear students of Digital Media and your friends,

we invite you to join us for the second presentation by a visiting designer / artist / author in the context of this semester’s “Introduction to Digital Media”:

Prof. Boris Müller
Interaction Design Lab at University of Applied Science Potsdam
will speak about “Interactivity”
Monday, 27. November 2017, at 2 p.m., HfK Auditorium

Boris Müller is a graduate from HfK. Here he studied Grafikdesign. Later he received a Master’s degree in Computer Related Design from the Royal College of Art in London. He is one of the early movers in interaction design, the emancipation of interface design. Besides teaching successfully, he is a design consultant, and extremely engaged in all matters of beauty, sharp thinking, and propagating a position.

You should come yourself and tell your friends of the event.

Micromanipulation

Workshop with Benjamin Maus

DM.B-MA-2 (MG) Spezielle Gebiete der Digitalen Medien (MG)
Dates: 22.02.2018 – 24.02.2018 and 26.02.2018 – 02.03.2018 (10h – 18h)
Registration via mail: warum@allesblinkt.com

Human’s thing is to manipulate things. It allowed us to conquer and transform the planet beyond recognition. Humans manipulate most things that exist on earth: matter, animals, plants, natural processes and about everything that is above or below ground. Excluded from this are things that are economically not viable or of no interest to science (yet). A lot of times being small or very big saves things from being manipulated unless there is a specific interest (like quantum computing, cancer research, communications in space).

In this course, I want to explore with you different practical techniques of manipulating things that are too tiny to see. The result of this manipulation has to be sensed in order to control the manipulation and see the result. This can happen either by microscopy or very sensitive sensors returning values. Common approaches for this kind of task are micromanipulators made from piezo-electric crystals, mechanics with no moving parts (flexures/living hinges) and clever use of materials to create precision from not so precise shapes.

The main goal of this course, however, is not just about proving that small things can be manipulated, but to think what implications it has if it was common to manipulate small things – animate or inanimate.

Four weeks before the start of the course, I will ask you to already start a short research phase. Basic building kits for making a low-cost, yet very precise piezo actuator, tiny sensors and cheap microscopes will be provided.
