Things about entanglement , unmasking the networks

Things about entanglement , unmasking the networks and turn the nodes into paranodes.

Mejias suggestions for playing the networks in order to disrupt them which is to reveal what is invisible. Looking at how the networks could have their own experience of themselves, computer can be a source for “producing , for example, the unknown out of the known” .
Overall, I want to reflect a space where humans and machines are intertwined and where hierarchy is always under review.

Always on the back of my head, how to illustrate our entanglement with the network and the internet of things Everything is merged , but everyone has his own character
I wanted to treat the human as equal as the automata

The nodes are having fun together without us
when they sense our presence they communicate in their own language, audiovisual
their extended bodies are entangled with ours

showing the roots, processing without thinking about how to show the process, then reverse engineering to explain the process

combination of organic artefacts made of electronics and traditional basketry and puppet making

Questions on where to start?

First iteration , where to start?

  •  how many type of artefacts for each set? which type of sensor, actuators : sound, light sensors, motors ….
  • mechanical interactions rather than serial interaction
  • more precise sketch with the mask in , working as a gate what is the link with the network of artefacts? how the mask activate the network?
  • look at this work for inspiration :

3D printing fabric exploration

3D printing ideas and download : https://www.myminifactory.com/

control the movment of a servo :

Worked :

motor A, continuous servo is activated by sound, holder A turn and stop. While turning, touch holder B which  in turn activate motor B , servo 180  ” nervous servo”. Using two arduinos.  

to do :

  • use only one arduino, stabilise the holders
  • test other fabrics for nervous servo, and elastic thread to fabric from servo, shibori technic to enclose artifacts
  • transfer to textile circuits with Attiny 85
  • add a sound producing ,  Speaker playing a short record
  • add EMF transmitter
  1. looking for a script for the network of artifacts
  2. Coding, knitted patterns 
  3. Prototyping ,knitting and actuators

 

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

tutorial from Maker Show, Bret Stateham 

  •  stepper motor basics , , testing the order for the wire pins order
  • 28BYJ-48 stepper  common ground between IN1 and Micro Controller, power source independent motor and board , connect to arduino, find the bottom for the delay, not to quick , it will frieze
  • accelstepper arduino library : Supports acceleration and deceleration,Supports multiple simultaneous steppers, with independent concurrent stepping on each stepper, API functions never delay() or block, Supports 2, 3 and 4 wire steppers, plus 3 and 4 wire half steppers.
  • reduce speed DC motor with a PWM., < turning slowly and getting mad when sensor activated>

Test Servo and sensors, check code, circuit and breadboard

  1. Servo+ Capactive sensors
  2. Servo+ Photo resistor

Hands on !

started from the arduino book and shadow theatre sensor installation

found some interesting movements from continuous rotation versus non continuous rotation  , and different motors , different “mood”,

to do : video and pictures , try different heads to check the movements, test how they relate to each other in term of movement/character

 

Questions about scripts

How to stage a

Network of artifacts????

 ChatBot exploration

  • <create a surrealist “conversation”between the nodes and with the nodes>
  • use the bibi dictionary as a base, binary system with letters , “Ho, He, BikEDa” , translated into shapes
    • code the binary letters, still to be done, shape equivalence bibiDico
    • http://www.graner.net/nicolas/nombres/bibibinaire.php
  • work with pattern making in processing , to create the “landscape” of the cell? 

 Embedded Signal

Signal can be embedded in an object by adding textured patterns or by modifying an object’s natural texture.This form of watermarking is currently employed to track sensitive or high-value machine parts and to identify containers carrying toxic or hazardous materials. Three-dimensional objects also raise the possibility of encoding signal by arranging artistic elements in space”

  • No one has trespassed the border, the nodes are “talking”/ interacting with each other.
  • Someone crossed the border, his face is snapshot by the LAO mask, the nodes stopped talking to each other, mirroring/ framing/hiding/revealing the human.
  • Human is crossing back, when he is out of the “view”, the nodes are “talking” again, they are talking about him, something about this human remains with the nodes to “talk” about.
  • inspiration : chinese whispers, 1 ,2 ,3 soleil, gossip, bid/offer and how news are spread across exchange markets and transformed into (non)tangible assets, lemurs and their group behaviour
  • border is a framing a door for accessing the nodes world , behind the screen, nodes , projecting their shadows on screen . on the order side the viewers trying to pass

 Secret conversations

UCCC : Ekman,U Ubiquitous Computing, Complexity and Culture, 2016 Edited by Ulrik Ekman, Jay David Bolter, Lily Díaz, Morten Søndergaard, Maria Engberg – Routledge, p125 Irene Mavrommati :  “Ubiquitous computing (Ubicomp ) are complex computing systems; they can also be understood as ecologies of artifacts, services, people, and infrastructure. Systems with such complexity can be approached as component-based systems. …Component based systems are independent systems with loose coupling of interchangeable parts, which communicate via interfaces.”

 create a Network of artefacts , interacting with each others and with people
Slip in two groups, on two different locations

-When “alone”, the artefacts are moving accordingly to patterns generated by one algorithm and data previously collected, input/ parameters should include time and location
-When a presence is detected, new data are collected and new patterns, movement, sound or visual are generated, informations are processed , some of them shared to the viewer, so he could modify its input.
-The two groups will evolve to separate species after few iterations, even if they started identical

(Uncanny space).

– using the programming publish-suscribe concepts?

– artefacts moving accordingly to patterns generated by cellular automata algorithms ( ref simulating neural transmissions, synaptic caguama by Lozano-Hemmer)?  make them evolve with genetic algorithm ( the more people looking at them, ref Jessica Field)?

– repulsion / attraction systems, 10 prints, L systems, machine learning, MaxMSP , using OpenData to map to a visual. Use of OSC touch on my mobile to draw.artefacts mixing digital and analog making, embedded with sensors and OSC technology, talking to each other while receiving data from external input ( open data?)

 

  • algorithms to work on : GA, CA, particle systems,L system
  • technology for input : OSC touch , kinect,OpenData access, web Scraping
  • technology for output : machine learning, rasperry pi, 

draft scenario

  • Input is human , through sensors or data collecting. Output group 1 is visual- Output group 2 is sonic
  • If there is no input, the group 1 are drawing some shapes and machines of group 2 are reacting to the drawings by making sounds,
  • If there is some external input group 1 is taking the input and changes the patterns of its drawing , sending informations to the group 2,  having a private conversation between them . machine 2 output as sounds responding,
  • If the two groups have people , they count the people, the group with more people will have the possibility to evolve and/ or making more noise/ expanding drawings….

 the machine talks to each other in a foreign language

the machine talks to each other in a foreign language, we gave and forgot about it , they still talk this language< Check the ASCII control characters table from old teletype days>

 

<Define the Network of artefacts contolled via OSC touch?  Network is the Mask, its artefacts are the nodes>

 Listen to the Other via EMF

<the machines will feel the EMF on visitor ‘s body and react with sounds or visuals>
