Hi Søren and Susana: When Christmas arrives, the InC group hides in the woods and celebrates its seminar. This year we are missing your presence.
The Spanish delegation (Arantxa, Julio and Javier) would like to send both of you a Christmas greeting from KolleKolle and remind you that we exist and we like to hear from you from time to time
Thorbjørn Lausten has developed a complete set of new figures for the Maeda displays in the atrium of ITU. Lausten is an internationally recognized artist that have worked with light sculptures, strict geometric forms and interactivity since the early 70´s. Visit a collection of his masterpieces available online. I would like to point your attention to his 1972 installation Pointany-X, consisting of a rotating light bulb that would turn on in reaction to a loud sound produced by the observer. My personal favorite is his very large projections on a hillside in Edinburgh, “Craggs Projections, 1992” (notice the small movie of it at the webpage ). Recently, Lausten did an art installation “Sol” at ZKM, Karlsruhe. In “Sol” various scientific measures of sun activity would drive beautiful graphic patterns in the art museum.
The US artist John Maeda made the original design of the displays and the graphics. It has always been John Maeda´s intention that other artist should be given the possibility to use the display hardware for other installations.
A group of ITU students did a greath project “Image Chain“(see the last posting from Tosca): You upload a picture that you came to think of when watching the last picture in a long chain that has been created by others. Add a tag (in Danish, unfortunately) and you get a word to help the association start flowing. It all started with a sunrise, and right now it has become the image of a survaliance camera. In between we have seen Mr. Bush, a monkey, the earth, a globe and then finally a suvaliance camera image (to the right). Try it here and make the chain grow.
