Questions about objects sensing the world

Imagine Communication between objects through their tactile properties

sensors to the world (other machines, human and environment)

plan to use a spin drum on the top of the servo A. work with catch dreamer format as it spin, and automata spinner Robert Race, carousel toy , spin

Plan to encapsulate Two servo motors, A and B

  • Environment produce shadow/ sound/ light …… and trigger A
  • A motor on
  • A turn and hit B ( every time or randomly)
  • B motor on
  • B produce sound
  •  
<When Sensing EMF from electronic devices you have on you
 The nodes move A / Nodes = textile + SERVO   / Osc control  / Nodes  sound B , if no EMF>

<Building a matrix ( resisitive or capacitive) sensors > , in order to map touch by machines,  exchanging  OSC messages

Things about Textility of Code

FoAM . Collective looking into Weaving and Coding

A catalogue of errors, by David Griffiths and Alex McLean : This article presents a series of informal experiments in software and weaving, most of which were conducted as part of the Weaving Codes, Coding Weaves project.

Questions about installation – K- cells-Knitted cells

the cells, could functions as kinetic drawing bots:

01/10/2018

 In relation to my essay proposal about the  ”NetWork : the Ultimate Mask “
Find the Poetic Space of the Network , I have the intention is to build up some Knitted cells units.  I would like to be able to stitch them together to make either a costume , a quilt , a mask,  a 3D sculpture  , a sensitive environment, or reactive bodies for puppets…

“Rules” :

  • The cells will have different functions , and different structures . They could store visual memories . They could produce or record sounds, be thermo sensitives.  They could produce lights etc…
  • Combined and stiched together they form a body. Each of this unit has its own functions and life, stich together they form a collective and have a collective behaviour. Individually they have a autonomous behaviour.
  • Like puppets can do one thing , dancing versus walking, or a mask is expressing one quality ( neutral, clown, buffon ….)  each type of K cells have limited functions , either data feed, ligth or sound. their design should reflect this particular feature.
  • Decide whether together they are stronger or weaker ? amplification process? they can also relate to each other remotely ie not stitch together.

Strategy

  • >Build K cells in electronics and transpose into soft e textile
  • > Build two families KL, knitted light fiber cells .and KA knitted audio fiber cells

    • Wearable Antennae Speaker FM Transmitter (KA)
  •  Puppetry and mask making process of animating objects
  • then WA weaved audio cells
  • combine the two families in a collective structure

“Variables and functions”:

To achieve the design of each family of K cells,  I will use ( list to be completed)

  • mapping technology ( Max/ MSP, Mad Mapper)
  • generative code to find interesting patterns for each type of cells

Things about Crafting the Digital

Make the invisible visible-crafting the digital

While researching about network embodiment , I came across an article written by  Justin Marshall, Jon Rogers and Jayne Wallace  . The authors  investigate how craft sensibility” can extend beyond the scope of material interaction, to engagement with people and situations as a broadly empathetic way of exploring the world. ” Their proposition is to “create a crafted digital future” .

In that matter, Irene Posch , artist and researcher, explore the integration of technological development into the fields of art and craft with projects like the knitted radio  and crafting logic (crafting computer)

 

Things about sound Artists

Article in Everydaylistening  about  Antoine Bertin

a sound artist curious about our relationship to the environment. Together with material designer Hélène Combal-Weiss, and technology creative Simon Cacheux they form SounDoesnTravel, a sound driven creative studio designing innovative listening experiences. on Vimeo
