  • Masaki Fujihata, Augmenting the World

    Latest news | 26-04-2017
    19.05.2017 - 02.07.2017 Opening 19.05.2017, at 6 pm. Laznia 1, str. Jaskolcza 1, Gdansk   Counted among the pioneers of interactive art, Masaki Fujihata is one of the most celebrated, innovative and prominent artists who work with media technologies. Early in his career in the 1970s, he made animations, initially using an 8mm film and the stop motion technique. Later, he shifted to video to further investigate visual perception. The morphological explorations of perception that he undertook then revealed his meta-artistic concerns, which have ever since continued to resurface in a variety of forms. At that early stage, Fujihata’s projects addressed visualisation systems and techniques, the status of the image, the relations between technology and expression and new concepts of art emerging at the intersection of artistic practice, technology and science. In the following decade, Fujihata turned to computer art. Engaged in computer graphics a

    Book DIE AND BECOME! ART AND SCIENCE AS THE CONJECTURED POSSIBLE

    Latest news | 11-05-2017
    DIE AND BECOME! ART AND SCIENCE AS THE CONJECTURED POSSIBLE Edited by Dmitry Bulatov, in Polish / English, 204 pp. with 157 col. ill., Gdansk: Laznia CCA, 2017 ISBN978-83-61646-81-5   This publication is issued in conjunction with an exhibition and educational programme of the same title, which took place at the Łaźnia Centre for Contemporary Art in late 2016 and early 2017. Its fundamental objective is the presentation of artists’ and philosophers’ quest for the limits of means of expression, transgressing the “visible” and the “present”. Art here is seen as a holistic creative praxis, within which, alongside the utilization of the newest 21st century means – biomedicine, informational technologies and robotics – a significant number of “non-scientific” elements are represented: intuitions, metaphors and assumptions  When pondering over the scientific and technological possibilities of

Jaskółcza 1, Gdańsk ART, EXPERIMENT AND TECHNO-SCIENCE Public lecture by Chris Salter (Concordia University, Montreal) + promotion of the book accompanying the exhibition DIE, AND BECOME!, chaired by prof. Ryszard W. Kluszczyński   What do artists working with science and technology do? My recently published book Alien Agency: Experimental Encounters with Art in the Making (MIT Press, 2015) explores how “researcher-creators” produce new performative assemblages that challenge how we experience the world and create, and simultaneously, destabilize new phenomena and our perception of such phenomena. How do the materials of art – the “stuff of the world” – behave and perform in ways beyond the creator's intent, becoming unknown and alien. How is it that researcher creators organize the conditions for new kinds of

Pior to joining the UCLA faculty, he was a group leader at IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, where he research in nanoscale science and technology for more than 18 years.   Dr. Gimzewski pioneered research on mechanical and electrical contacts with single atoms and molecules using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and was one of the first persons to image molecules with STM. His accomplishments include the first STM-based fabrication of molecular superstructures at room temperature using mechanical forces to push molecules across surface, the discovery of single molecule rotors and the development of new micromechanical sensors based on nanotechnology which explore ultimate limits of sensitivity and measurement. This approach was recently used to convert biochemical recognition into Nanomechanics. His current interests are in the nanomechanics of cells and bacteria where he collaborates with UCLA Medical and dental Schools.   He is involved in projects that range from the operation of X-rays ions and nuclear fusion using pyroelectric crystals and single molecule DNA profiling.

The show is commonly acknowledged to have been the launching point not only for Hirst, but for a generation of British artists. Since the late 1980s,Hirst has used a varied practice of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing to explore the complex relationships between art, life and death, explaining:  “Art’s about life and it can’t really be about anything else… there isn’t anything else.” Through work that includes the iconic shark in formaldehyde, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991) and For the Love of God (2007), a platinum cast of skull set with 8,601 flawless pavé-set diamonds, he investigates and challenges contemporary belief systems, and dissects the uncertainties at the heart of human experience.

He has visually probed and acoustically amplified his body. He has made three films of the inside of his body, filming 3m of the internal space of his lungs, stomach and colon. Between 1976-1988 he completed 25 body suspension performances with hooks in the skin. He has used medical instruments, prosthetics, robotics, Virtual Reality systems, the Internet and biotechnology to explore alternate, intimate and involuntary interfaces with the body.   He has performed with a Third Hand, a Virtual Arm, a Stomach Sculpture and Exoskeleton, a six-legged walking robot. His Prosthetic Head is an embodied conversational agent that speaks to the person who interrogates it. As part of the Thinking Head Systems he collaborated with the Marcs Auditory Labs at the University of Western Sydney to develop the Articulated Head, the Floating Head and the Swarming Heads projects. He is surgically constructing and stem cell growing an Ear on Arm that will be electronically augmented and internet enabled. The first surgical procedures occurred in 2006. He has recently been performing with his four avatar and automaton clones on his Second Life site, exploring actual-virtual interfaces and gesture actuation of his avatar with Kinect.

    Patrick Tresset

    A French artist and scientist who investigates human artistic activity, computational creativity and our relation to machines, in particular our relations with robotic entities. In the context of his art practice, Patrick uses robotics to create autonomous robotics entities that are evocative representations of the artist, and in a certain manner a representation of himself. His robots are based on advanced technologies using research findings from robotics, computer vision, artificial intelligence and cognitive computing. Patrick encountered and practiced computing, painting, drawing and sculpture from an early age in France. Following a degree in Business Computing, he migrated to London to become a painter. Between 1991 and 2003 his work was exhibited in solo and group shows in London and Paris. In 2003, Patrick lost his ability to paint and draw, he has since been working on computational and robotic systems that are able to simulate these artistic activities. Patrick’s research led him to join Goldsmiths, University of London, to study for a Master of Sciences in Arts Computing and until 2013, he codirected the AIkon II project with Prof. Frederic Fol Leymarie. The AIkon II project investigated the observational sketching activity through computational modeling and robotics. Patrick also created the creative robotics course taught to postgraduatestudents at Goldsmiths as part of the MFA Computational Arts programme. Patrick was recently a Senior fellow at the Zukunftskolleg, University of Konstanz in Germany and is a currently a visiting research fellow at Goldsmiths University of London, United Kingdom. As a researcher he has published academic papers in the fields of artificial intelligence, computational aesthetics, computational creativity, social robotics, drawing research, digital arts and computer graphics.
