PLACE RELATIONS EXHIBITION
Location: Kunstraum Walcheturm, daily from 14:00 - 20:00
About the Place Relations Exhibition
The import of location in place-based artworks represents a set of relations that become visible as they are affected or reconfigured. The artists in this exhibition explore the potential of public space, geographic territory, architectural location, social relations, online informational media, and virtual 3D worlds to form situational works. Their methods include participatory performance, field documentation, new media interactivity and mixed media installation. Results emerge as a hybrid reading of community venture, memory map, psychogeographic inquiry and information aesthetics. The works are situational in revealing the conditions or potential of place. They appear momentarily, as a shift in the relations of everything that blends into city life, distant landscape, or the event-stream of global digital space.

International Airport Montello
On top of chosen public or private terrain, we are visualizing a “possibility” – one, that is usually suggested or challenged by the borders and limits of the place and its environment itself. The ability of a possibility to exist within a specific place is of temporary emergence. It usually lasts as long as it takes to realize that the possibility is possible. In our work, this “realization” often happens in a very practical and participatory way. Everyone engaged in the piece has the opportunity to experience a certain probability within the piece’s possibility. All 3 projects (1.1 Acre Flat Screen, The Paradox of the 10 Acres Square and International Airport Montello) are based on random pieces of land we bought on ebay.

Imaging Place is a place-based, virtual reality art project that combines panoramic photography, digital video, and three-dimensional technologies to investigate and document situations where the forces of globalization are impacting the lives of individuals in local communities. The goal of the project is to develop the technologies, the methodology and the content for truly immersive and navigable narrative, from real places. The project has been under development since 1997 and includes work from around the world. The interface leads the user from global satellite images to virtual reality scenes on the ground. Users can then navigate an immersive virtual space.
Join JC Fremont at Emerson Island, in Second Life for the opening reception on Tuesday July 10 from 14:00 - 16:00 CEST (5:00 - 7:00 AM PDT Linden Time).

Public Mood Ring
Public Mood Ring is a combined internet and spatial installation displaying the emotional condition of public news stories as color hue. It is based on the wearable "mood ring" which chemically changes color according to body temperature. A series of animated web pages allow users to pick a news story, a cultural color model and to observe the process of the search engine. The artwork responds to participants news concerns and recalibrates the color of exhibition space with architectural LED lighting. The shared experience is the gift of the remote participant and an immersive color representation of current world events.
Participate in a live performance of the Public Mood Ring http://PublicMoodRing.thruhere.net during the the opening reception of the exhibition on Tuesday July 10 from 14:00 - 16:00 CEST (8:00 - 10:00 AM EST) or for the duration of the exhibition.

Panoramic Art in Real Time
Philipp Bönhof & Programming Languages and Runtime Systems Group, ETH Zurich (CHE)
Todays computer science makes it feasible to integrate computers into clothes, depict virtual worlds and let humans and machines interact. "Wearable Computing", "Virtual Reality" and "Human Machine Interaction" are the respective technical terms. The Computer Systems Institute of ETH Zurich created an attractive application of all three realms: A belt integrated computer, developed at the Wearable Labs at ETH Zurich, has been programmed to show pictures on a head-mounted display. People wearing the display are enabled to see virtual panoramas. The system can be controlled by intuitive head movements in a way that enables a widely natural impression of a panorama view.

Kohei Nawa usa e-bay come fonte di approvvigionamento per i materiali, inizia la sua esplorazione inserendo una parola chiave nel motore di ricerca e poi, stabilito un contatto visivo con l’oggetto desiderato, lo acquista e lo rielabora. Prismi e biglie di vetro ricoprono e inglobano i più svariati soggetti, dai giocattoli alle teste di animali impagliate. Anche dopo la rielaborazione dell’artista, l’oggetto conserva intatte tutte le sue caratteristiche, infatti l’intervento artistico non è finalizzato alla modifica di esso, quanto all’alterazione percettiva dello spettatore. La banana rimarrà sempre una banana, ma ciò che verrà percepito dal nostro sguardo sarà deformato e modificato, non è l’oggetto che cambia, ma il punto di vista che ne attua la trasformazione, a dimostrazione di quanto la realtà delle cose sia sottomessa allo sguardo e alla percezione dell’osservatore. Questo giovane artista di Osaka è alla sua prima mostra in Italia. Ha al suo attivo numerose mostre in Asia e Stati Uniti, la partecipazione alle più importanti fiere internazionali e una grande attenzione da parte della critica che gli ha attribuito diversi premi e che lo ha eletto una delle più promettenti figure dell’arte contemporanea asiatica.
a Milano fino al 15 luglio alla galleria IERIMONTI
