"The Naïf garden" OUT NOW!


Dates:
Wed Feb 06, 2013 19:05 - Sun Dec 29, 2013

Dear friends & colleagues,

Hope this finds you well.
I'm glad to share with you my project "The Naïf garden" (from the series 'digital art in public space' http://www.chiarapassa.it). Interactive video mapping screening created especially for gardens and forests 2012; realized demo 2013 at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/thegardennaif.html

I built this enchanted garden basing myself on video-mapping technique, using Quartz Composer programming language, as well as, After Effects and MadMapper software.
Since an art festival takes place mainly in the dark, I thought about turning a part of the garden in a sort of virtual and interactive nocturne happening as a 'Live Painting', where the viewer is totally protagonist and associated with the creative process of the artwork itself, that is in constant transformation. In fact, through the audience’s voices it is possible redesign a new atmosphere, that comes alive through various digital patterns based on the "particle system" swarming in the real garden, they show cells, viruses, multi-cellular organisms, and various molecular forms.In the “Naïf Garden”, the interactivity carries the people through an emotional and learning journey where their subjectivity is put in question by the choices they constantly make throughout the artwork’s layers.
The “Naïf Garden” is part of the project “Live Architecture”, a series of site-specific interactive video installations and video mapping projects, I thought them up and created them in order to reshape architecture in public places, as well as interior environments and natural landscapes into something vibrant and lively. A dynamic place is always displayed within the multimedia installations - that's why I called it "Live" – since it moves independently, beyond its functionality.

Best regards, Chiara

WindowZoos: Open Call

About WindowZoos

For the exhibition "Window Zoos", the DAW International is looking for a few additional artworks that use Augmented Reality and Geo Tagged images. The project "WindowZoos" is inspired by an image of a car driving down Singapore’s legendary Orchard Road with its windshield plastered with stickers of popular cartoon characters. In keeping with the idea of the car and the experience it provides those inside it, a concept was developed to transform Orchard Road into a virtual exhibition by overlaying the entire road with geo-tagged media common to game technologies and augmented reality systems. Like the car's windshield, participants' mobile device screens become windows onto the virtual world that is emerging around us, expanding our notion of what constitutes public space and how art can be exhibited. Whether traveling by vehicle or by foot, artworks will augment the "stop and go" journey down the road adding to the hustle and bustle of the people and the glare and flash of window displays and neon signs.

Submission Procedure

Thematically, the theme and content of the works is open. We particularly welcome works that are suited for presentation in Singapore. All artworks must be finished and submitted and peer reviewed by the appointed jury. Only the best-finished and publicly accessible work will be accepted and included in the show. All accepted works will be included on a comprehensive tour map of the works will be provided with QR Code keying so that visitors can easily select the works positioned along the segments of Orchard Road in Singapore.

Submission deadline: March 17, 2013
Application by email:exhibit.windowzoos@gmail.com

About the exhibition: BFF by Jennifer Chan.

"BFF stands for "Best Friends Forever". Everyone needs friends. It feels good to trust. Friends meant the world to me when I was a teen. Friendship breakups hurt as much as breaking up. Adult relationships seem compartmental and diplomatic." Chan's website http://www.jennifer-chan.com/
