A Crystalpunk Workshop for Soft Architecture event: Workshops & Presentations 25-26-27 November 2005 ------------------------------------ All events are free email us at: email: crystalpunk |at| socialfiction |dot| org How to find us: Openbaar Vervoer Neem vanaf NS station Utrecht Centraal stadsbus 1, 6, 7, 16 of 36 naar halte Oudenoord. Hier bevindt zich direct het gebouw waarin Impakt gevestigd is. Loop rechtsom naar de achterzijde, daar is de ingang op Oudenoord 275 ------------------------------------- >>>>>Friday 25 November 19.00 - 22.00 Computing Architecture by EZCT Architecture & Design Research EZCT research what they call surrational design, design produced by systems made up from rules and conditions put in there by the designer, which once put in motion evolves towards forms and complexity the programmer never would have been able to conciously conceive. This workshop, given by Jelle Ferringa, explores genetic algorithms as one promising tactic for meandering through the possibility space of architectonic forms. Starting with a look on the historic lineage between mathematics and architecture, this workshop evolves into an extensive hands-on session of designing evolutionary systems. http://www.ezct.net This workshop builds on previous workshops like: http://www.archined.nl/news/4631.html >>>>> Saturday 26 November 14.00-18.00 Arch-Os workshop Arch-OS is an 'Operating System' for contemporary architectures, developed to manifest the dynamic life of a building. Arch-OS systems (integrated hardware and software) incorporate a range of embedded technologies to capture audio-visual and raw digital data from a building through a variety of sources. Chris Speed, who has worked on Arch-Os from early on will present the ideas behind the concept, show previous work and then allow for a practical hands-on experience. http://www.arch-os.com >>>>>Sunday 27 November 14.00-18.00 Presentations by C6, Tom Carden, Christina Ray, Franziska Huebler, Hyperbody, Orkan Telhan C6 is a London based group with much experience in subverting art spaces, digital spaces and public spaces, usually all together at the same time. They borrow strategies and tools from graffiti, DIY eco punk and activism and yet they are like none of them. http://c6.org Tom Carden works somewhere between design and simulation, between architecture and artificial intelligence. He runs the aggregator for Proccessing news which is an invaluable source of information for users on this software tool which is also used extensively during the Crystalpunk workshop. http://www.tom-carden.co.uk Orkan Telhan works at the Sociable Media group at the MIT Media Lab. Here to share his extensive knowledge of electronics and programming he will also discuss what he does when his Peter Parker alias is exchanged for nightly sessions as a mad landscaper, executing information-rich representation of spaces. http://orkantelhan.info Christina Ray was trained as an Architect in japan, currently she is based in the New York version of Breukelen. She works as an artist of the psychogeographic kind. She is a co-founder of the artist collective Glowlab, as such she was largely responsible for the PsyGeo Con Flux conventions held in New York where the current day psychogeographic community presented itself to the rest of the world. http://www.glowlab.com Franziska Huebler and Jeremy Abbot are based in Hamburg TruthDare is a design studio working on physical computing projects. or as they say themselves: Our mission is to create meaningful experiences through design. This occurs when an engaging dialogue takes place between the storyteller and the listener. http://www.truthdaredoubledare.com Tomasz Jaskiewicz and Dieter Vandoren work at the Hyperbody Research Group, headed by Kas Oorsterhuis, at the TU Delft. As such they are having an active share in some of the most advanced research on soft architecture undertaken in Holland. To quote a snippet from the web site: Hyperbody explores the possibilities of multidisciplinary architectural and urban design in an ICT-driven environment, including new interaction modalities for intuitive control of the system. http://www.protospace.bk.tudelft.nl The Crystalpunk Workshop for Soft Architecture is produced by Impakt. The Best new media organisation in the world. http://www.impakt.nl --------------------- Crystalpunk Workshop for Soft Architecture "What the Elephant Man is to the Athletic Body, the Crystalpunk Room will be to the Smart House" http://socialfiction.org/crystalpunk ---------------------- __________________________________ Yahoo!
