Sculpt me, if you have an IPhone!


Dates:
Mon May 09, 2011 10:45 - Tue May 31, 2011

Dear friends,

I'm glad to let you know, is available the IPhone's APP of my
interactive video sculpture: "The virtual Prigione”. To download the
free APP, just connect your IPhone to the Apple Store of your country and search for "V Prigione". Links: US Store, Ita store.

Concept

“The virtual Prigione” APP for IPhone, is an interactive portrait
video-sculpture inspired by the concept of  the latest “unfinished”
sculptures of Michelangelo, named “Prigioni.” The App is dynamic and
interactive, the user can sculpt it just using the finger as a chisel.
"The virtual Prigione" represents various states of being. The
spectator can choose to liberate the sculpture from the marble (using
chisel as -) and its dependence material, so the body-statue
sublimates and the marble becomes virtual idea. Or the user can also
choose to imprison the statue into the marble (using chisel as +),
bringing it to the primordial state where the
mass has a simple geometric figure.

Best regards, Chiara

"Augmented Irreality"


Dates:
Mon Oct 25, 2010 00:00 - Mon Oct 25, 2010

Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to share with you my latest interactive video installation: "Augmented Irreality". The demo is online at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/videoenglish.html , Images at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/augmentedirrealityimages.html

Best regards, Chiara

CONCEPT

From the series “Live Architecture”: “Augmented irreality”,
interactive video installation, time variable. 2010, by Chiara Passa.

"Augmented Irreality" is an interactive video installation that is projected onto three walls and the floor. The artwork (built in Quartz Composer and Artoolkit) puts the viewer into the 3D software by placing him in the "window-camera." The spectator, through the use of some matrix (having different patterns the size of the palm of the
hand) printed on squares, is able to operate, move, zoom, remove and interact with three-dimensional objects that meet on the Cartesian axes X, Y and Z of the simulated software. The artwork recreates a three-dimensional flat under construction, which the audience itself continues to customize through their movements. Also “Augmented Irreality,” like other video installations of the series "Live Architecture," is based on the concept of "super place" where the site
is self-performing and moves beyond its capabilities. The video installation reflects on the idea of the virtual/unreal and how our bodies, in real space, are related to this kind of dimension/experience. “Augmented Irreality” highlights the paradox of
how augmented reality, in truth, diminishes reality itself, removing
and modifying the real levels, it increases the irreality in our real atmosphere.

Dear friends,

I'm glad to share with you my net-based, ongoing project: “The virtual
Prigione”.
Demo at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/videoenglish.html

“The virtual Prigione”, interactive video-sculpture, time variable.
Demo version 2’30’’, 2010.

“The virtual Prigione” is an interactive portrait video-sculpture
inspired by the concept of the latest “unfinished” sculptures of
Michelangelo, named “Prigioni.” The website that hosts the virtual
sculpture becomes dynamic and interactive. The user can sculpt using
the mouse as a chisel. "The virtual Prigione" represents various
states of being. The spectator can choose to liberate the sculpture
from the marble and its dependence material, so the body-statue
sublimates and the marble becomes virtual idea. Or the user can also
choose to imprison the statue into the marble, bringing it to the

Charting Art's Thoughts


Dates:
Tue May 25, 2010 00:00 - Mon May 24, 2010

Dear friends,

I'm glad to share with you my last net based artwork: "Charting Art's
Thoughts", 2010

"Charting Art's Thoughts" is a spontaneous neuronal network of
thoughts. Thus, thoughts about digital art from ‘Hyperuranium’ ;-)
have landed on a virtual map. The short (160 characters as twitter
displays messages) art's thoughts are generated from Twitter posts
that match a database of keywords related to art . At every page's
reload, the earth’s map refreshes itself and tracks new words and
phrases. Charting Art's Thoughts is a circuit where random thoughts on
new media art are shared on a map! This map is inspired from the
ideasonair.net’s theory that says: “Ideas are in the air and the earth
is spinning around, connecting with these ideas at various places. So
an identical idea could land or be had in New York and Rome at the same time.”

Best regards, Chiara
