2 Re-use of everyday physical artefacts in live electronic music and design for public space Recycling: >> to avoid overloading the environment but even: >> what creative constraints and new opportunities sustainable / recycling thinking brings to design and art practices? Make use of the interesting properties of recycled everyday objects! Sound-art – design for public space – locative media OVERVIEW

3 DIY, hacking, recycling, flea market, containers, vintage aesthetics Using what is already there, what is available at hand. Nicolas Bourillaud - Postproduction: a recourse to already produced forms Artists today program forms more than they compose them: rather than transfigure a raw element (blank canvas, clay, etc), they remix available forms and make use of data. BACKGROUND

4 Electronic musicians re-using everyday objects as part of their custom-made music instruments: vegetables, office accessories, junk, discarded consumer electronics found in containers... Recycling in Sound-art

5 Vegetable Orchestra Recycling in Sound-art

6 Vegetable Orchestra Recycling in sound-art Viennese orchestra performing with instruments made of fresh vegetables Live acoustic concerts Audience offered vegetable soup at the end of the performance

13 Re-use and activation of office supplies, balloons... Space of randomness and improvisation: letting objects have their own life Qualities and acoustic properties of objects put in the centre Use of magnetic properties, size, weight, acoustic parameters, etc. KANTA HORIO Recycling in sound-art

21 MIDI SCRAPYARD CHALLENGE JONAH-BRUCKER COHEN & KATHERINE MORIWAKI Recycling in sound-art

22 The Scrapyard Challenge Workshops are intensive workshops where participants build simple electronic projects (both digital and analog inputs) out of found or discarded "junk" (old electronics, clothing, furniture, outdated computer equipment, appliances, turntables, monitors, gadgets, etc..). MIDI SCRAPYARD CHALLENGE JONAH-BRUCKER COHEN & KATHERINE MORIWAKI Recycling in sound-art

23 Workshops for (...) encouraging an open and collaborative space for creative ideas and hands-on prototyping MIDI SCRAPYARD CHALLENGE JONAH-BRUCKER COHEN & KATHERINE MORIWAKI Recycling in sound-art

24 No electronic skills required: pre-assembled MIDI modules to connect to the junk Midi for sending both control and actuating signals Electrical contacts -> signal Continuous vs discrete connections MIDI SCRAPYARD CHALLENGE JONAH-BRUCKER COHEN & KATHERINE MORIWAKI Recycling in sound-art

26 With simple means and a bit of imagination, junk everyday objects can be animated, repurposed, augmented, given a new life. Giving a new electronic life to everyday objects. MIDI SCRAPYARD CHALLENGE JONAH-BRUCKER COHEN & KATHERINE MORIWAKI Recycling in sound-art

35 Design for public space

36 UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING Mark Weisers vision (1991) –disappearing computer –everyday world literally used as interface The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it. Technologies: –context awareness –embedded sensor networks –global positioning –wearable computing –augmented & mixed-reality –ad hoc and p2p user networks –etc Locative Media ADDING COMPUTATIONAL PROPERTIES TO URBAN SPACE Design for public space

37 LOCATIVE MEDIA Digital media with a sense of place, embedded into the real physical world Examples: –pervasive gaming (the world as game-board) –space annotation (media with specific position in space) –GPS drawing (city-wide drawings), etc mobile vs disposable vs embedded technologies Locative Media ADDING COMPUTATIONAL PROPERTIES TO URBAN SPACE Design for public space

38 Opportunities of deploying ubiquitous technology in public space (e.g. sensors & actuators) rich interactions computing in the real world, where needed, where the action is social layer of meaning Challenges in terms of sustainability use of energy use of material producing waste Locative Media ADDING COMPUTATIONAL PROPERTIES TO URBAN SPACE Design for public space

39 Inspiration from sound-art? architecture? urban sports? graffiti? - Making use of properties and features urban space? - Adding new layers of meaning, ways of inhabiting space? Locative Media ADDING COMPUTATIONAL PROPERTIES TO URBAN SPACE Design for public space
