free_art_-_source exhibition [2016]

// Image of code work by Tomasz Sulej

*free_art_-_source* je meta-izložba s tematikom kôda koji čini i/ili gradi suvremenu umjetnost i recentnu estetiku proizašlu iz sintakse računalne kulture.

Izložbom u prostoru Inquiry Inc. predstavit ćemo hrvatske i međunarodne autore i umjetnike koji u svojemu radu koriste ili prepoznaju razne programske jezike kao univerzalan jezik za kreaciju i komuniciranje umjetničke intencije.
Djela tretirana kao grafički listovi, predstavljena u izvornoj formi pisanoga teksta-naputka pomažu opisati raznolike mogućnosti za autorski izričaj u vremenu i kontekstu interdisciplinarne kulture koja omogućuje potpuno nove i raznovrsne tehnološke, filozofske i umjetničke pristupe.

Izložba u trajanju od tri dana otvara se 24.4.‘16. u 18h, a možete ju pogledati do 26.4. u terminima od 16-20h, na adresi Adama Reisnera 137, Osijek (goo.gl/maps/lSX0t).
Na licu mjesta moći ćete istražiti i rezultate koje predstavljena tekstualna djela kreiraju u domeni recentne novomedijske - transmedijske i hipermedijske umjetnosti.

*free_art_-_source* is a code-themed meta-exhibition, showing the source of contemporary art and recent aesthetics built on the syntaxes of computer culture.

The exhibition at Inquiry Inc. art space will show Croatian and international authors utilizing programming languages to universally communicate their creation and artistic intention.
These artworks, treated as graphics and shown as the source/instruction for the creation of art will help us understand the possibilities of expressions in the time and context of interdisciplinarity providing us with new and diverse possibilities of technological, philosophical and artistic approaches.

The three day expo opens 24th of April 2016, at 18:00, and is open till 26th of April, 16-20h, at Adama Reisnera 137, Osijek, CRO (goo.gl/maps/lSX0t).
At the location you will be able to explore the new media, transmedia and hypermedia artwork/results of the shown text-based work.

Yahshoo, Bartek Pilarczyk

Circles used in this project display a certain behaviour: when a circle passes another one within a defined distance, a new figure is drawn on the canvas between the centers of both circles.

1. Array of 5 circles is initiated
2. Circles move in various directions
3. Circles are invisible (they do not leave trace on the canvas)
4. When one circle meets another within a specified distance, new figure is drawn between their centers (here: squares and lines).
5. Color of the figures is determined by the RGB values of the pixel in the meeting point.
6. Time. Rather big amount of it in order to see some interesting results. (Shortcut for the impatient ones: click few times on the canvas, more circles will be added to the array. Thus, more of them will meet in shorter time.)

Bartek Pilarczyk is mainly an engineer with some artistic inclinations. However, not very deep knowledge of real life art materials made his initial art creation attempts quite miserable. Recently, he discovered that mathematics, randomness and writing a wrong computer code can be used to design a piece of art. This fact pushed Bartek to follow the software - as - a - medium path.

love is denied to robots, Domenico Barra

“Chi non lavora, non fà l'amore”. These are the lyrics of an Italian song that say that “who does not work, does not deserve to make love”. Now that robots are the substitute of human labour, do robots deserve to make love? Do robots deserve to have sex? Do robots deserve passion?
The code is a “print” function written in the Python interpreter Python 3.5.
The background picture is a frame from a gif where a human gets sexual pleasure from a robot machine.

DEL?No, Wait!REW., Michaela Lakova

DELETE?No, wait!REWIND is an automatized system, which recovers files from hard drives without the consent or the knowledge of the previous owners, who presume their content has been forever deleted. DEL?No, wait!REW asks is it possible to delete information in the digital age? Whether our storage devices are locally present (hard drives) or dislocated (the cloud), can we ever be certain our data has been permanently deleted? In an ongoing conversation around the impossibility of erasing digital traces, what role do we take? Are we plunderers, interpreters or mediators?
The installation aims to prompt the viewers with a decision or ethical choice whether to delete a recovered file or save it by publishing it online.

Michaela Lakova (BG/NL) is a visual artist, researcher and videographer. Her artistic practice revolves around exposing the immateriality of digital technology by looking into the physical dimensions of our computational storage devices. Her recent visual works depict larger questions such as: what are the social and cultural impacts of using technology and how do we encounter ourselves while acting inside a programmed system? Michaela’s works often takes shape of  installation, video, photography, sculpture or a publication.

Running Hajnal, Uğur Engin Deniz

Running Hajnal stemmed from my desire to make interconnected 3d systems that are able to run without any user input/excessive manipulation. Venetian’s Hajnal has always been an influence on me creating similar sound scapes, hence my choice it for this experiment. Through visual programming cinema4d provides I made data connections using filtered sound graphs.
Working nodebased relies on clearly laying out tables with a visually comprehensible connection. I tend to work messy. In the table (1st pic) this is accentuated visually by further shuffling of the nodes. This machine will still run perfectly, yet the language is lost.
Notepad (displayed image) is how the computer stores the project creating it’s individual sense of chaos with seldom references to in scene objects.
The automation approach influenced most of the videos I created around that period and a still ongoing quest.
