Work in Progress: Waterside Commission – Kinetic Collage

January 19, 2016

Sandra Crisp: '102_Avatars' Dynamic code-based work

Sandra Crisp: ‘102_Avatars’ Dynamic code-based work

On 13th January 2016 I visited Sale, Great Manchester to complete

research and development for a commission at Waterside Arts Centre

due to launch mid-February 2016.

Waterside Arts Centre is a thriving and vibrant arts venue in the heart of Sale

in Greater Manchester. Comprising a theatre, art galleries, studios and workspaces,

the centre is an important regional hub for both performance and visual art.’

Waterside, Arts Centre

Waterside, Arts Centre

At Waterside, I will be exhibiting code-based dynamic work from Kinetic Collage project

(2015) on a 55″ display screen located in the foyer.

The 10 Microcommissions were awarded to 10 artists via open submission process for

Waterside’s 10th anniversary celebrations.

Sandra Crisp: '102_avatars' Dynamic code-based work. Fragmented imagery, text and graphics recycled from Twitter rotate continually, one layer replaced by the next as avatars and tweets flicker across the screen.

(..View dynamic Kinetic Collage screencast videos HERE for a better idea of the movement

in the work)

Although I have previously exhibited elements of the project in the form of screencast

videos in Common Bodies, East Street Arts, Leeds, W.Yorkshire, June 2015 for example,

this is the first opportunity I’ve had to show Kinetic Collage as

intended – Processing sketches running in realtime. For this venue, the work will run on the 55″ screen

located in Waterside’s foyer. I’m really looking forward to making this happen!

As ever, when testing out digital files between different platforms, there

were a few glitches to begin with. But thanks to help from project organiser

Mario Popham, we found a work-around to deal with file issues (mainly the usual Mac/ PC

issues)  All the Processing ‘sketches’were eventually

exported from Processing into standalone Java mini-programs, that may be easily

launched from the desktop connected to the display screen.

Sandra Crisp: kinetic_array_2

I created 7 standalone exports so that a different work will be

running each day whilst the centre is open, forming a rotating exhibition that includes the majority of the works from the

project, viewed over time. To accompany the display, I will also produce an

image printed direct onto aluminium or perpex which will be located nearby in the foyer. I am keen to

explore different forms of presentation media for the work other than the usual inkjet print, I hope

that perspex or amuminium will lift and suspend the image in a similar way to an onscreen

image.

Waterside Micro Commission| Waterside Arts Centre, Sale, Greater Manchester

October 20, 2015

I’m really looking forward to working on a new commission for the Waterside Arts Centre Sale, Greater Manchester taking place in January 2016. The ‘microcommission’ will be part of a series of 4 exhibitions at Waterside between October 2015 and January 2016.

The main proposal will see Waterside’s large 55″ touchscreen situated near the ticket office used to display dynamic work/s from Kinetic Collage project – Code-driven artworks created with Processing open source software 2014-2015  that layer and rotate fragmented images, text and graphics appropriated from Twitter profiles and timelines.

Sandra Crisp: Touchscreen displayed artwork, Waterside foyer

The large touchscreen will allow a full-scale dynamic Processing ‘sketch’ or ‘Twitter mandala’ to run on the screen in a way which is not normally possible when the work is viewed on a much smaller domestic-size screen. Therefore, the commission offers a great opportunity to present the the work as it was originally intended in a busy public space.

The second part of the proposal includes a print-based installation in the foyer, gallery or window/ entrance area. The dimensions, structure and choice of various print media, such as paper or transparent film will result from a direct response to the building’s architecture or possibly informed by by an aspect of local history. However, exact details won’t be finalised until after after a site visit in Novemember 2015, so watch this space to see how the work develops…..

“As part of Waterside Arts Centre’s 10th anniversary celebrations, we are pleased to announce a series of micro commissions designed to showcase the work of emerging artists working within two dimensional disciplines. Selected works will be presented via the Art Centre’s new 55 inch touch screen monitor whilst there will also be opportunities for utilising the wall and window space in and around the main foyer of the venue.”

Video screencasts of dynamic programs running in Processing can be viewed HERE

An update of work in progress will be published on this blog as soon as it happens!

SIMULTAN 2015 / TALKING TO STRANGERS

September 24, 2015

Auroville Dream (Tales From the City) will be included in Simultan Festival 2015 ‘Talking to Strangers’, Romania:

60

SIMULTAN 2015 “TALKING TO STRANGERS” 11th edition / 7-10 october / Timisoara RO MEDIA ART / EXPLORATORY MUSIC AND SOUND

What would Voyager 3 contain if it would be re-launched today, after 38 years? In 1977, an information package was launched into space, a symbolical selection for the human civilization, launched with the intention to be intercepted or discovered by an alien civilization. A sort of “hello” from the humans, a way of saying “we are here”.
Today, maybe, such a package would contain microchips, texts with smiley faces at a correct decoding. We would probably brag about the invention of a virtual communication system, about our intelligent control systems? Our self-control or the controlling of others. We might also include some e-books about the human nature, on micro-sd cards, because we also advanced our knowledge in the field of psychoanalysis. Why wouldn’t we send a picture of Osama or of other terrorists that we cannot find, maybe they would help us with that.
Maybe we could simply send a cry for help, in the hope that in the thousand years that would take them to discover it, there would still be a chance for a few of us to be saved. Or Voyager 3 could be a new Noah’s ark, a capsule of DNA for a possible reconstruction. Read more HERE—>
