“The idea  was to try and reconstruct through parametric and algebraic mathematical modeling some of the forms found on the original Man Ray piece (the central helicoid,for example) and project them in 3d space”. Fotis Begetis

Collage of screenshots from a MacBook Pro with a malfunctioning NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor, Animated Gif. Based on Magazine Cover: 391, New York, N.3, 1 March 1917.

Download Gif

 

“The image was cut into 10 equal segments which were fed individually into a 2008 MacBook Pro 17” laptop with a defective graphics processor.  The laptop was allowed to affect each segment, during which approximately 20 screenshots of each were taken.  The screenshots were then reassembled into 10 complete images, taking care to keep all segments in proper location.

Defective GPUs produce “randomly predictable” output, but by assembling collages of many different screenshots I hoped to produce a distinctly different aesthetic than would be created by allowing the GPU to affect the whole image at once”. John Bumstead

Artificial Intelligence is rapidly progressing thanks to the development of “deep learning” systems. Neural networks are trained to recognize images and describe them with words. Captionbot.ai is an AI created by Microsoft that combines Computer Vision and Natural Language to describe contents of images. It’s frequent errors became a meme in early 2016, sharing the funniest results. I submitted the Citroen’s artwork to Captionbot.ai and the result is definitely DaDa“. Marco Cadioli

dadarchy

raquelmeyers_dadarchy_450

Animated Gif. Based on: Man Ray, Long Distance1926.

Download hi-res image
 
Inspired by Man Ray’s stencil Long Distance (1926), dadarchy features PETSCII characters brutalizing dada like a concrete poem. “Raw force shaped in text, flat and brutal. It’s dadarchy time!” PETSCII (PET Standard Code of Information Interchange), also known as CBM ASCII, is the character set used in Commodore Business Machines (CBM)’s 8-bit home computers, starting with the PET from 1977.
 

Raquel Meyers is a Spanish artist based in Sweden who defines her practice as KYBDslöjd (drawing by Type In), a brutalist storytelling about technology and keystrokes where text is used unadorned and roughcast, like concrete. Brutalism has an unfortunate reputation of evoking a raw dystopia and KYBDslöjd evokes an “object of nostalgia”. But nostalgic, retro, obsolete or limited are rhetoric qualities earn by constant repetition. We live in a time where hardware and software become obsolete before most of the users have learned how to use them or disappear into pure functionality. The obedience to standards has made us passive observers and consumers.
Since 2004 Meyers has performed at festivals like Transmediale, Fylkingen, Piksel, Mapping, MFRU, HeK, or Cimatics, at 8bit events like Tokyo Blip Festival and the Playlist exhibition, as well at Liste Art Fair Basel, Xpo Gallery, Click New Media Arts Festival, Alt_Cph, LABoral, FILE and iMAL, among others. In 2016, Meyers has been artist in residence at Le Shadok, Strasbourg, where her first solo show has been organized in collaboration with the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival.

“Long Distance 2016 is mine- 90 years later- homage to Man Ray’s work “Long Distance” based on a deformed  binary progression. The title itself has an evoking quality of the very long distance among those times and now days in terms of artistic expressions and indeed everything else”. Letizia Galli

Orb State


 

Audio visual animation. Based on: Man Ray, Main Ray, 1935
 

“Orb State is an immersive trip in a surrealist environment. As we come upon an orb in its natural habitat, we witness its harvesting and ascension to an airy state. Thus portraying an abstract representation of the automation of industrialization by its cold and sequenced aesthetics. The transformation is experienced through a fusion of sound and image resulting from several exchanges between the two collaborators, Faderunner and Johann Baron Lanteigne during the summer of 2015. The visuals are an integration of manipulated video glitch and motion graphics reminiscent of video games from the early 2000’s that were inspired and controlled by the sound. In the same manner, Fade Runner’s fusion of organic sounds and synthetic textures reflects the orb’s unstable state”. Johann Baron Lanteigne

Dada recognition

Snapchat pictures and video of Alannah and me  – ready made photo filters. Based on: Paul Citroën, Alannah, 1931.

Download hi-res

 

“The project is based on a popular mobile application, Snapchat, and the possibility (or failure?) offered by its facial recognition system, able to identify faces also on images of faces (or objects and drawings similar to faces).

I printed a copy of the artwork and then I created a custom profile on Snapchat application (you can follow me here). In this profile I’m collecting snapchat pictures and video of the artwork, and me with the artwork: the facial recognition system recognizes Alannah’s face and so multiple filters can be applied and overimposed. In the same way the artist added link drawing to the silver gelatin print, so I modify the artwork adding snapchat filters as a further level”. Annamaria Andrea

3D image. Based on: Marcel Duchamp, Handmade stereopticon slides, 1918

Download image

 

Stereoscopy is a technique used and the viewing of images, drawings, photographs and films, adapted to transmit an illusion of three-dimensionality, similar to that generated by the binocular vision of the human visual system.
The image “stereoscopies à la main” allows you to enjoy the images separately, but the lack of a suitable non-stereoscopic vision allows you to enjoy them in three dimensions.
Starting from two separate images for each eye I made a 3D image which, using simple glasses with magenta and cyan lens, allows you to see the three-dimensional effect, bringing the object photographed in a unified and real way“. Giulio Regosa
