Première étape du projet SmartCity @ la CIUP, ces chantiers initient une vaste série d'expérimentations artistiques dans l’espace urbain lancées en association avec CitéCulture à la Cité internationale universitaire de Paris (CIUP). Conçus en prise directe avec le territoire du Sud Parisien et son environnement proche, la ville de Gentilly, les chantiers résultent de l'immersion d'équipes artistiques sur ce périmètre, durant tout le mois de septembre.Issus d'horizons variés et de toute l'Europe, les intervenants (artistes, scientifiques, industriels, paysagistes...) croisent leurs compétences et appuient leur démarche sur un minutieux travail de repérage et d'analyse du territoire.

Black Box: Semiconductor
August 25, 2008 to December 14, 2008
Artists Ruth Jarman and Joseph Gerhardt, aka Semiconductor, have collaborated since 1999 on various forms of “digital noise and computer anarchy,” including films, experimental DVDs, and multimedia performances. The London-based pair makes moving-image works that reveal our physical world in flux: cities in motion, shifting landscapes, and systems in chaos. They strive to transcend the constraints of time, scale, and natural forces and explore the world beyond human experience, questioning our very existence.
Featured in the Black Box is Magnetic Movie, 2007, an eye-dazzling “documentary” created during the artists’ residency at the NASA Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley. The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are exposed as chaotic ever-changing geometries. VLF (very low frequency) audio recordings reveal recurrent “whistlers” produced by fleeting electrons, while space scientists describe their discoveries. As we watch the film it’s not clear: Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?
Magnetic Movie was awarded best film at Cutting Edge and at the 2008 British Animation Awards and best experimental film at the 2007 Tirana International Film Festival. Joseph Gerhardt was born in 1972, Oxford, England, and has a bachelor’s of arts in sculpture from the University of Brighton. Ruth Jarman was born in 1973, Fareham, England, and has a bachelor’s in critical fine art practice from the University of Brighton.

Second International conference on image science of the Department for Image Science, Danube-University Krems
Never before the world of images has changed so fast and the way images are produced transformed so drastically like in the latest presence: Second Life, Micromovies, Flickr, Virtual Reality, You Tube, Visual Music, Scientific Visualisation, Google Earth etc. are keywords standing for a multitude of new possibilities for individual producing, projecting and distributing of visual material.
In occasione della sua seconda doppia personale milanese presso 1000eventi e Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea, Andrea Mastrovito reinventa gli spazi delle due gallerie trasformandoli in "cinema da un soldo" nei quali i materiali stessi del cinema e del mondo dello spettacolo ribaltano la magia del cinematografo attuando una momentanea sospensione della credulità nello spettatore ormai assuefatto al bombardamento visivo contemporaneo e portandolo a interrogarsi sulla effettiva genesi e riproducibilità delle immagini proposte.
