Ideasonair App limited edition OUT NOW!


Dates:
Thu Jun 30, 2011 11:45 - Sat Jul 30, 2011

Dear friends,
my web project "ideasonair.net-blogging as an open
art project" is now at the hundredth idea. I'll be glade to share with
you a LIMITED EDITION (just for 100 devices) of the ideasonair
IPhone-APP (you'll NOT find it on the apple store) I've made just for
you, with an ad-hoc distribution.
In order to create an Apple
electronic certificate for the ad-hoc distribution, I need to add to the
certificate (then, you can ins...tall
and synchronize the App directly through your ITunes) also you
identifier device number, is a long number that you can see, copy and
paste, when the IPhone is connected to the ITunes.
So, if you like to have the Ideasonair's App, please send me soon your device id number!
Thank you very much for being with us since 2005!
Best regards, Chiara
Ideasonair.net
is a web based project that serves digital artists. The site promotes
artistic ideas created by me in various fields, especially for digital
art. Therefore: “Dear artists, poets,architects, designers, critics,
curators and ‘lovers of the trade’, if you are short of ideas this is
the site for you!” Here, the ideas from ‘Hyperuranium’ have landed and
found a place or better a virtual factory. Ideasonair.net creates for
you a lot of different ideas ready to be developed. Ideasonair has a
particular theory about ideas and how we perceive them: “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”. This site could be considered somewhat like
entropy. It puts in order and gives shapes to ideas. This online factory
is continually updated to always give artists new ideas.
Ideas
appear in the site in three different stages. The first stage is purely
preliminary and the idea is just a clue in their primordial state, maybe
not yet able to be developed. The second stage we can call (as Freud
would call it) the ‘daydream’ stage. This is the stage in which the
various elements that constitute an idea come in contact and come to
realization. The third stage deals with the complete idea ready to be
developed. The three stages are marked on title by their respective
colours: red when the idea is in the initial stage, orange when it is in
the ‘daydream’ stage and green when it is ready to work.
Finally artist doesn't need to fight for any ‘copyright’, ‘copyleft’, ‘copydown’ !!!
Ideasonair
is a conceptual artwork in progress that puts in evidence the concept
of ‘open artwork’ getting ideas and waits for their realization. Moral
of the fable: The ideas are the artwork and they can be transmitted…
just like the thought!

Tales from space


Dates:
Thu Jun 23, 2011 15:10 - Thu Jun 30, 2011

Dear friends,
I'm glad to share with you my latest artwork: "Tales
from space", agenerative video-installation based on the theory of the
quantum mechanics.
"Tales from Space" develops in a hollow space or
under a dome. The viewer is surrounded by the projections and listens to
short sentences about the concept of multidimensional-space. The words,
generating a barrage of random points, blacks holes,
micro-flash-dimensions and macro forms of light that intersect each
other; envelope themselves, double back, widen and shrink, depending on
the spectrum modulation of the sound narrative that is based on the
concept of quantum mechanics.

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.
