« Data viz or Data touch ? »
Art, Science, Design & Data visualisation

Friday  October 17th 2014
17h-19h

Lab de l’Institut Culturel de Google
8, rue de Londres, Paris

A conference organised by Décalab, together with:

  • Catherine Ramus, Designer Orange Labs Orange / Albertine Meunier, Artist
  • Emmanuel Mahé, Director of Research, EnsAD Paris, Research associate Décalab
  • Annick Bureaud, Art Critic, Director Leonardo/Olats
  • David Guez, artist, Performance « mémoire numérique & conservation »
  • Salvatore Iaconesi, engineer, interaction designer, artist, hacker, Performance « La Cura »

The conference abstract, in French:

Le terme français de « données » (data en anglais) peut porter à confusion. Elles ne sont pas « données », au sens où il suffirait de les collecter. Elles sont en réalité construites. La question de leur traitement – accès, collecte, analyse – ne doit pas faire oublier que les data sont en effet fabriquées. La relation à la réalité et aux autres s’en trouve modifiée.

On limite cependant trop souvent la matérialisation des données à leur simple « visualisation », c’est-à-dire à un seul de nos sens.

Quelle réduction ! Le son et le toucher sont en effet les parents pauvres des data designers.

Cette conférence perfomative vous propose une autre esthétique informationnelle : vous écouterez et toucherez des data.

La Cura at transmediale: Afterglow

La Cura will be featured at the 2014 edition of the transmediale festival in Berlin, in the panel “Under the Skin: Revealing Invisible Data“.

La Cura, an Open Source Cure for Cancer

La Cura, an Open Source Cure for Cancer

The panel will be part of the Hashes to Ashes section of the Festival, curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli. It will be moderated by Alessandro Delfanti, and will feature the participation of Salvatore IaconesiPinar Yoldas and Rüdiger Trojok.

During the conversation we will narrate the story of La Cura.

We will highlight the progressive encoding processes of human life that are taking place in the contemporary world, reducing human beings to data and simplified, encoded version of themselves, starting from the growing medicalisation of our societies, and proceeding all the way up to the visions of the Quantified Self and the horizons of BigData, and the impacts they have on our daily lives and on the possibility to express our complexity, preserve our privacy, and more.

Through the scenario of La Cura, we will present the opportunity to break the encoding, reclaim our data and complexity, and bring both back into society: the “patient” becomes a human being, once more.

The result is a p2p oriented transformation. Health moves away from being a service, from being something you buy, and has the opportunity to become something you do, together, as part of a society, of communities, of cultures and of their intersections, exchanges, communication.

We will describe the results, under the forms of new modalities for peer-to-peer welfare, different economies, fuelled by desire and bodies. Replicable, scalable results, across domains and communities.

 

The Mirror and The Source @ Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series

 

AOS in Detroit

AOS in Detroit

AOS will be in Ann Arbor (Detroit) on October 17, 2013, for the Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series at the Michigan Theater with “The Mirror and the Source“, a talk/performance exploring the transformation of human beings, and the new rituals, emotions, new intimacies and public spaces of our augmented lives in the digital era.

“The Mirror and the Source” will be an exploration of contemporary life with Art is Open Source, an international network of artists, researchers, technologists, architects, designers and activists interweaving disciplines and practices to understand the current mutation of human societies through the wide availability and accessibility of ubiquitous technologies.

A visual, sonic journey through the new rituals and emergent ways in which we have radically changed the ways in which we work, relate, consume, feel emotions, have sex and entertain ourselves.

The first Open Source Cure for Cancer, the real-time digital life of cities, the story of a baby artificial intelligence called Angel_F going to the United Nations to defend its digital rights, a very dangerous videogame, human tamagotchis and a fictional company using a very naughty business model will be among the many performances, artworks and researches which we will encounter along the journey.

Come and meet us here:
