Patrimonio corpóreo y medios para la diversidad: generando creación y critica transcultural.

FORO INTERNACIONAL METABODY WEIMAR 2015

DEL 1 AL 8 DE MARZO de 2015 en Weimar/Mittweida en Bauhaus University

El 6º Foro Internacional Metabody del 1 al 8 de marzo de 2015, “Affordances de la Simbiosis” redefine la interacción y el potencial inconmensurable del cuerpo en la era de la informática ubicua en Bauhaus Universidad, Weimar, Alemania
Audacia – Artes – Artesanía. Bauhaus era sede del diseño funcional y la arquitectura.
La Universidad de Bauhaus acogerá el Foro Internacional Metabody – IMF 2015 Weimar/Mittweida y ofrecerá la perspectiva de la arquitectura incorporada, las tecnologías encarnadas que destacan las diferencias corpóreas de la expresión y la comunicación.

Affordances de la Simbiosis
Redefiniendo la interacción y el potencial inconmensurable del cuerpo en la era de la informática ubicua.

El Ratón ha sido empleado durante 50 años como el dispositivo de interacción principal con el ordenador. Aunque la HCI (Interacción Humano Máquina) se haya establecido como una rama de estudio que comienza a partir de los años 80, sólo últimamente nuestra relación con los ordenadores comienza a cambiar con las pantallas táctiles de los dispositivos móviles. Mientras tanto, la informática se ha hecho ubicua y, aún que todavía de modo impreciso, cada vez más actuamos recíprocamente con el ordenador de un modo basado en el control corporal, desde las puertas públicas al control del televisor o trabajos interactivos de arte.

La tetera tiene un asa, el ratón tiene una forma que cabe en la palma de la mano, los libros tienen páginas para pasar, mientras la interacción con un ordenador esta cada vez más basada no sólo sobre los objetos físicos que reducen el movimiento muy discretos a parámetros detectables, sino a gestos corporales capturados por cámaras y sensores.
¿Cómo podemos inventar nuevas affordances del cuerpo en su movimiento continuo mientras avanza el paradigma reduccionista de la informática ubicua?

El software cambia el concepto del siglo XXI del cuerpo. Este lo convierte en un objeto de medida y cálculo, reduciéndolo a números. Al mismo tiempo, la percepción del cuerpo como máquina enturbia el límite entre “normal” y “anormal”. Reflexionando sobre la discapacidad, hacemos preguntas sobre las premisas del software. Desde esta perspectiva, la discapacidad, con todas sus connotaciones negativas, adopta los valores positivos de diferencia y pluralidad. Esta es una apreciación del cuerpo en sus cualidades aún desconocidas; por lo que puede hacer, en vez de lo que es.

Preguntémonos si una nueva definición de cuerpo – uno que difumina las fronteras entre normal y anormal, capaz e incapaz, mensurable e inmensurable – puede estar basada en una nueva definición de las affordances. Affordance como el potencial indeterminado del cuerpo, por ejemplo para moverse de modos aún inconcebibles. Affordance como una relación de potencial abierto.

¿Cómo podemos facilitar tales affordances en nuestro mundo determinista y probable de control ubicuo? “¿Qué puede hacer un cuerpo?” se transforma en, “¿En qué pueden convertirse las affordances del cuerpo?”, entendido como movimiento y relación, como potencial abierto, como las ecologías relacionales de nuestra vida simbiótica.

Facilitando la Diferencia:
Taller con compositores y personas de diferentes capacidades.

Del 2 al 4 de Marzo.

Con el equipo de MotionComposer formado por 6 compositores: Andreas Bergsland, Andrea Cera, Giacomo Lepri, Marcello Lussano, Pablo Palacio, Ives Schachtschabel.
Ver Biografías.

Cada compositor presentará su entorno interactivo y cada uno estará disponible para personas con y sin discapacidad para que experimenten.

¿Cómo podemos eliminar las barreras de la expresión, la alegría y la inclusión? ¿Cómo podemos ampliar la expresión gestual, la gama de movimiento, y la expresión emocional?
¿Cómo podemos promover una conciencia positiva de la diferencia, lejos de expresiones normativas? Este taller de 3 días enfocará los usos de tecnología interactiva con las personas de diversidad funcional y explorará modos diferentes de hacer música de los movimientos.
6 compositores, un encargado de taller y un coreógrafo propondrán los diferentes accesos de interacción, usando el movimiento que rastrea la tecnología (incluyendo sistemas de vídeo y sensores), el baile y la música.

Este taller está diseñado para personas con o sin discapacidad. En colaboración con Lebenshilfewerk Apolda y Tröbsdorf.

Estudio Abierto

Del 1 al 6 de Marzo.

El estudio abierto con la presentación de compositores de música interactiva – y el desarrollo – los accesos diferentes de interacción, utilización del movimiento que rastrea la tecnología (incluyendo sistemas de vídeo y sensores), baile y música.

6th-7th October

19:00-22:00

Workshop and demos – Metabody / Metatopia – embodied media as response to surveillance culture.
The workshop will focus on experimentation with perception, movement, spatial and bodily affordances for researching into the way interfaces capture and reduce movement to traceable discreet units, at the same time the workshop will propose to reinvent the affordances of the interface by involving bodily motion in non-reductive ways that foreground the indeterminacy and unquantifiability of movement as experienced through proprioception and other sensing modalities. All the Metabody tools, technologies and techniques developed by Reverso, TUDelft, Steim and K. Danse will become a critical playground for reinventing the body, reversing cybernetics and queering Big Data Brother.
With Jaime del Val, Jean Marc Matos, Marije Baalman, Nicolo Merendino, Nimish Biloria, and other Metabody partners.
Occupy 2.0 - 3

Featuring Workshop by Palindrome on the 6th October 19:00-20:00
Human Body Tracking — Motion and Touch

Many artists and performers today are using interactive technology. In this one-hour workshop, participants will get a taste of the body interface using camera and electrode-based technologies. We will look at some of the places such interaction draws its expressivity, and how it can be amplified and contextualized.

Palindrome has been working with MetaBody on an project called Affording Differences. This refers to fundamental differences in bodies and their desires for movement, and particularly recognizes the beauty and artistic values of diversity and disalignment. We work with persons of other abilities.

The workshop is for anyone — of any body-type and of any ability.
It concerns movement, music and touch.
Participants should come at the beginning (not in the middle) of the hour.
Wear loose clothing.

Software: EyeCon, EyesWeb, MotionComposer
Hardware: Computers, video cameras, touch sensors

19:00-21:00

Metabody introduction by Jaime del Val
Metabody Panel – Reversing cybernetics – Hacking Big Data Brother – Embodied media as response to surveillance culture.
Metabody is a European project that attempts to redefine the body in Media in less reductionist ways than is usual in current information technologies, thus counteracting technology’s increasing tendency to dampen differences by reducing bodies and movements to prescribed forms in current surveillance culture. Metabody proposes a reversal of cybernetics that highlights the indeterminacy of embodied expressions as a key factor for a sustainable society. This foregrounds the need for a new ethics, which we may call metamedia and biomedia ethics.

With Nimish Biloria, Marije Baalman, Nicolo Merendino, Jean Marc Matos, Jaime del Val, Johannes Birringer, Michele Danjoux, Pablo Palacio and other Metabody partners.

several meta-scenes from Metatopia 1.1 will be presented

METATOPIA 1.1

Metatopia is a metaopera, metaformance, and metagaming platform, a laboratory of perception, embodiment and space that extends in a series of installations / dis-concerts / performances / metaformances / urban interventions and home performances.
In an apparent future that could be the present a planetary cyberorganism, or hipercyborg, called Big Data Brother, traces, cuantifies and modulates every movement of every human and non-human body and space. There is a diffuse guerilla of Metabody agents that aim at deprogramming the hipercyborg (Big Data Brother) through mobilizing unquantifiable movements, untraceable behaviors, emergent perceptions and illegible affects, in a counter-reductive move towards increasing diversity of bodies and behaviours, infusing indeterminacy into the system. Metatopia is the architectural, kinetic and perceptual laboratory of the Metabody agents (also called mutant bitches 2.0) who develop dynamic, intra-active spaces, illegible behaviors and unquantifiable affects that exceed reduction to data. Metabody agents are affecthackers and perception hackers that operate in theontological substrata of power and control, XXI century Quixotes that undo the invisible strata of power disseminating diffuse actions across all spaces, a metapolitics for a potential Occupy 2.0 movement in the era of global surveillance.

STEIM Presentations

by Marije Baalman and “Chi Ha Ucciso il Conte?” – Nicoló Merendino

Within the METABODY project, STEIM is looking into the integration of sound and sensing into objects, wearables and the architecture, which may afford modes of body movement and awareness beyond the every-day-life experience in the digital age. Within this project we aim for distributed sound reproduction with custom made speakers – exploring the concept of soft speakers – both in its material, as in the loudness of sound reproduction. We explore the properties of the materials – the speaker is not a separate entity, but the malleable shape of the object determines the overall sound quality. The speakers are connected to small embedded microcontrollers or computers that synthesize and produce sound – thus moving away from centralized audio production and towards distributed sound production. Localized sensing connected to these microcontrollers and computers allow for additional interaction modalities with the objects, wearables and architecture – further eliciting bodily interactions with the objects, wearables, architecture and environment.
Soft speakers – sounding textiles – customized listening

DAP-Lab: Kimosphere

by Johannes Birringer and Michèle Danjoux
DAP-Lab will present a short film and several portable objects from the Kimosphere developed in Madrid (July 2015) In collaboration with TUDelft and the [S]carngami prototype developed by the student team Anisa Nachett, Alessandro Giacomelli, Giulio Mariano, Emily Guo, Xiangting Meng under tutoring of Dr. Nimish Biloria (Hyperbody, Faculty of Architecture and Built Environment) and Jia Rey Chang (Hyperbody, Faculty of Architecture and Built Environment). Kimospheres are kinetic atmospheres created for dancers and receivers exploring an intimate sounding architecture which envelops and acts as a suspended transparent veil and encumbrance – hiding-revealing, folding-unfolding while allowing light and “graphic writing” to flow through. They afford variable tactile orientations, colors, tones, shapes and positions, bodies forming netabodies inside a cocoon-like changing gauze texture or physical-mobile interface. Kimosphere not only reflects on the mediating conditions of conception as such – how we can think such a wearable architecture – but works through energies of tactile, breathing atmosphere (known in Japanese philosophy as “ki” and “aidagara,” & in Chinese cosmology as “Qi”) that are an “in-between“ phenomenon, generating fluidity between subject and object which the DAP-Lab design envisions as a kind of inside-inside.

Illegible affects

Reverso and Casa Paganini-InfoMus Research Centre, DIBRIS, Univ of Genoa in collaboration with Marcello Lussana

Infomus team: Antonio Camurri, Corrado Canepa, Paolo Coletta, Simone Ghisio, Stefano Piana
Casa Paganini – InfoMus Research Centre, DIBRIS, University of Genoa

Illegible affects is an interactive installation that analysis expressive gesture inverting the traditional approach of biometrics and surveillance by focusing on an awareness of entropy and other complex and ambiguous features as a positive value thus inviting the participant to have more entropic and complex gestures.

Neural Narratives

In the context of Metabody Instituto Stocos has developed a reserch called Neural Narratives that employs simulation-based techniques to extend and alter a dancer’s bodily characteristics and movement capabilities. In this reserach the dancer’s natural bodily properties are represented via the same computational abstractions that are employed for the simulation of artificial bodily structures. This abstraction integrates the structural and behavioral properties of natural and simulated body parts into a unified form of hybrid embodiment. So far the result of this reserch is exemplified in 3 artistic works, Neural Narratives1: Phantom Limb, and Neural Narratives2: Polytopya, and Neural Narratives3: Clinament currently in development, in which the bodily activity of the dancers play a prominent role in the evolution of the sonic and visual properties of the space, which behave as an extension to the body movement. In this works a series of artificial audiovisual creatures animated by interactive artificial neural networks are projected as holograms in the performatic space.
