Interfacing Realities is a Culture 2000 project initiated by V2_ and
realised in collaboration with EncArt. EncArt (European Network for Cyber
Arts) is a longterm collaboration between the ZKM in Karlsruhe, Ars
Electronica in Linz, C3 in Budapest and V2_ in Rotterdam that started in
1997. Interfacing Realities covers a series of four masterclasses that
focus on new concepts for information management in general, and the usage
and creation of databases and archives in contemporary art practices in

MASTER CLASS with Lev Manovich
C3, Budapest, 22 November - 26 November 2002

Human cultures have developed rich and precise systems to describe 
oral and written communication: phonetics, syntax, semantics, 
pragmatics, narrative theory, rhetoric, and so on. Dictionaries and 
thesauruses help us to create new texts while the search engines and 
the ever present "findŠ" command on our desktops help us to locate 
the particular texts already created, or their parts.

Paradoxically, while the role of visual communication has dramatically
increased over the last two centuries, no similar descriptive systems were
developed for images ú at least not on the same scale. So while the number
of different types of images we routinely create today is extremely large,
if not infinite (and it has become ever larger after computer tools made
possible to more easily combine photographs, graphics and text, and to
apply operations previously reserved for each of this separate medium to
all the other media ú blurring text, etc.), the systems we have to
describe these images are very poor. For instance, stock photography
collections divide millions of images into a couple of dozen categories,
at best, with names such as "joy" "business," and"  achievement";
professional designers typically use even more limited range of categories
to describe their projects ( "clean,"  "futuristic," "corporate,"
"conservative," etc.)

As computerization dramatically increases the amount of media data that
can be stored, accessed and manipulated, we are gradually shifting towards
more structured ways to organize and describe this data. For example, we
are moving from HTML to XML (and next to Semantic Web); from MPEG-2 to
MPEG-7; from "flat" lens-based images to "layered" image composites and
discrete 3D computer generated spaces. In all these cases the shift is
from a "low-level" metadata (the fonts on the Web page, the resolution and
compression settings of a moving image) to a "high-level" metadata that
describes the structure of a media composition or even its semantics.

What about images? Computerization creates a promise (which maybe only an
illusion) that images that traditionally resisted the human attempts to
describe them with precision ú will be finally conquered.  After all, we
now easily find out that a particular digital image contains so many
pixels and so many colors; we can also easily store all kinds of metadata
along with the image; and we can tease out some indications of image
structure and semantics (for instance, we can find all edges in a
bit-mapped image.) Yet visual search engines that can deal with the
queries such as "find all images which have a picture of " or "find all
images similar in composition to this one"  are still in their infancy.
Similarly, the metadata provided by a image database software I use to
organize my digital photos tells me all kinds of technical details such as
what aperture my digital camera used to snap this or that image ú but
nothing about the image content. In short, while computerization made the
image acquisition, storage, manipulation, and transmission much more
efficient than before, it did not help us so far to deal with one of its
side effects ú how to more efficiently describe and access the vast
quantities of digital image being generated by digital cameras and
scanners, by the endless "digital archives" and "digital libraries"  
projects around the world, by the sensors and the museumsŠ

The theoretical part of the Master class will develop in more detail the
paradigm sketched here. We will discuss the key modern attempts (in
cinema, graphic design, art history, psychology, and other fields) to make
images into a language ú i.e., to develop formal techniques to describe
images and to predict their effects on the viewer. Against this
background, we will look at the history, the present research and the
emerging trends in computer research which pursue the similar project:
visual search engines, the new hybrid forms of cinema which combine
cinematography with a more structured way to represent space borrowed from
3D computer graphics, the state of the art in computer vision
applications, and so on. We will also look at the works of a few new media
artists that engage with the politics and poetics of image metadata
(Joachim Sauter, George Legrady, and others).

Finally, we will also engage with some larger questions about the
functioning of images in a global information society. For example, is it
true that we live in a predominantly visual culture, or does
computerization in fact downplays the role of an image in favor of other
representations such as text and 3D space? Will our visual culture be
still dominated by photographic-like images in the twenty first century,
or will other kinds of images eventually take their place? While computers
allow us to manipulate old media in new ways, creating new hybrids and new
forms, do they also enable any completely new and unprecedented types of
visual representations?

The practical projects developed during the Master class can pursue one of
two directions. A project can present an analysis of some existing (and
socially important) system for cataloging and describing images and their
contents ú for instance, the categories used by stock media collections,
the categories used to classify facial expressions of human emotions in
computer research, the categories used by graphic designers to talk about
the styles of Web design. If possible, these projects should address the
following two questions: (1) are there any conceptual shifts which can be
observed in the logic of image description systems as they become
implemented in a computer, thus turning into software? (2) What are the
relationships between image description systems and the descriptions used
by software for other type of media?

Alternatively, a participant can develop a conceptual proposal for a
software interface to record, describe, access, or manipulate images in a
new way. While new media artists have extensively critiqued existing
software interfaces in general and developed many particular alternatives,
surprisingly little energy has been spend so far thinking on how we
interface to images. And yet the computerization of visual culture opens
all kinds of interesting possibilities waiting to be explored. For
instance, if it already possible to record and store practically unlimited
number of still and moving images of one's existence, what kind of
interface can we use to organize and navigate these images? Or, given that
we now can use database software to classify, link, and retrieve images
and image sequences along with other media, how can a database structure
be used to represent the life of a modern city, the history of a place,
etc. In other words, behind the difficult problem of visual metadata that
has become more pressing in computer age than ever before, there is also
an exiting promise ú the promise to represent reality and human experience
in new ways.

The projects created during the class will be featured on a Master class
Web site and will be published in a new book by V2 (Rotterdam).  
Therefore, regardless of whether a participant chooses to pursue
analytical or practical project, the final files should be ready to be put
on the Web and to be published in the book. Therefore the project should
be presented as a single panel (similar in style to architectural
proposals), available in Web-ready and print-ready versions (for instance,
an HTML file and an Illustrator file).

MASTER CLASS with Joel Ryan
ZKM Karlsruhe, 27 November - 1 December 2002

The application of new tools for scientific visualization to music
with Joel Ryan
for composers, media artists, mathematicians, and computer scientists

Navigating detail in musical real time

Modern music attempts to manage an unprecedented plethora of detail. The
massive data problem is as much the nature of contemporary culture as it
is the gift of our new computer based tools. This quest is not unique to
music and mathematical tools have recently emerged to deal with
understanding complex heterogeneous systems of data. The workshop,s goal
is to find ways to coordinate the recognition and recovery of states of
complex real time instruments. A target example could be called the
"Preset Mapping Problem". The workshop focusses on music, but the
solutions might be directly applicable to the control of any real time
system. The focus will not be on the musical time line or score problem.

The workshop is prospecting for new tools for composition and music
performance suggested by innovations in the visualization and navigation
of scientific data. Methods are emerging in fields as diverse as
immunology, protein synthesis, chaotic dynamics and data mining of texts,
all fields which have come to life since computational based techniques
have brought their complexity with in grasp. The sheer immensity of the
problems attempted has stimulated the search for intermediate tools for
sifting multidimensional avalanches of detail. Perhaps our faculty of
visual analysis can add to what our ears tell us.

The workshop is addressed to participants:
+ who have expertise in practical music platforms like SuperCollider or
+ Max and musician/composers  who need this solution
+ who have experienc in one of the sciences which already have practical
solutions for large data space problems
+ who can act as mathematical references

The workshop is limited to 10 participants. The language is English.

Joel Ryan
is a composer, inventor and scientist. He is a pioneer in the design of
musical instruments based on real time digital signal processing. He
currently works at STEIM in Amsterdam, tours with the Frankfurt Ballet
and is Docent at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague.

The fee for the 5-days workshop is 200 Euro (for students 100 Euro). The

Our operation will commence 11.08.02 at 20:00, #56 Water Street, in a
converted warehouse beneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

There will be two of us.  We will synchronize our watches.  We will arrive
on time.  We will identify ourselves as "Conductor Number Seventeen."  We
will say, "This is a Technolecture.  This is an Exposure.  This is a Seance.
Now Everyone get down on the floor."

We will occupy the location with consumer technologies.  We will apply
creative solutions.  We will use these technologies beyond the limits of
their prescription.

We will set up conditions.  However, we will maintain an openness toward
negotiation.  Some witnesses may resist, some will inevitably be lost.  It
is our hope that some will recognize our call and apply memory toward others
who came before us and who demonstrated in a similar faith and

We have accepted failure into our design.  We are not "playing to win."  The
moment may not hold us.  History may call us traitors.  History may not call
on us at all.  These are the dangers of performance.  These are the risks
incurred by dividing time so succinctly.  This is the terror of decision
