SPEAKERS & INSTALLATIONS

° Tuesday January 29, 6 PM Gallery Talk - Opening Reception 7-9 PM:
Biopoiesis, DPrime Project Researchers Carlos Castellanos & Steven Barnes from Vancouver BC present an experiment in the relationships between structure, matter, and self-organizations in what might be described as a computational "primordial soup". It is based on the work of cyberneticist Gordon Pask and his research into electrochemical control systems that had the ability to adaptively construct their own
sensitivities to environmental information.

° Thursday Jan 31, 2 PM Gallery Talk
Philipp Engelhardt, Hildapromenade 4

Philipp Engelhardt is a "magician" who had an idea to animate eight Polaroids that he found on the street. The result was an animated photo album narrating a new story in a new context. He combined, reconstructed, and repeated his own graphical material and the collected jetsam of pictures to reveal them in a new context. To the observer, the visible alterations in the picture are not immediately apparent; the manipulation is seen as the reality it superposes. Engelhardt lives and works in Karlsruhe, Germany.

E ALIVE 7 Reign of Gold - Augmented Reality
Tamiko Thiel, USA/Germany
mission-base.com/tamiko/AR/reign-of-gold.html

Accessing "Reign of Gold" is very easy, as it is meant to be seen around the world. If you have any favorite places of protest for Occupy Wall Street, please go there also send us your screenshots!

You should be able to access it this way:

1) Download and install the FREE Layar Reality Browser from the app store or from www.layar.com

2) In your smartphone web browser type in and go to: m.layar.com/open/reignofgold

3) If Layar tells you "not found" just try again - this is a bug they should have fixed by now.

4) Launch the layer and look around you - it should surround you. If Layar tells you "not found" just try again - this is another bug they should have fixed by now.

With iPhone and iPad it might take a bit for the servers to get a GPS-lock on your position, in which case you will see it off in the distance, or on your smartphone display you will see a white dot behind you or to one side on the "radar" in the upper left corner.

Another alternative is to start Layar, press the "geo-locative" button on the start screen to get to geo-locative layers, then type in "reign of gold" in the search field. Again, if it doesn't find it at first, try again!
