One more interactive-video at Youtube:
"YouToRemix_Bike C-Mapping_YouTubeMix (test02)"

Be a standard "vj" (visual jockey): you got to click inside the video (on white-button, then it turns over yellow), turns on remix, in this "pad-interface" you have 18 video-samples to choose as shown in the following tutorial:

Following "YouToRemix...t2" is about my phd project which uses YouTube as a video library to produce creative new "Audiovisual Rhetorics" online in Internet.
"Bike C-Mapping part#3" was showed in 2009 at Pocket Film Festival (Paris-France) and International Architecture Biennial Exhibition (São Paulo-Brazil)

HERE YOU CAN PLAY WITH IMAGES. FIRST, WAIT FOR COMPLETE LOADING.

ENJOY IT!

Os fluxos em trânsito de uma cidade acontecem para além de seus espaços físicos, em espaços invisíveis a olho nu, espaços informacionais. Assim, em uma revisão de contato com a cidade, este vídeo apresenta samples ora retirados do próprio Youtube ora retirados do vídeo "Audiovisual Rhetoric: Bike C-Mapping part#03" (veja: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQCnrv-93ig) propondo ao internauta que refaça seu próprio percurso frente a este discurso de experimentação da cidade, em especial o efeito de localização, onipresente em nossas vidas cotidianas, causado por tecnologias como celulares (telefonia móvel) e GPS (sistema de posicionamento global via satélites). Quais são estes rastros que deixamos pelo espaço e que alimentam diversos bancos de dados sobre nossos cotidianos e pessoais percursos?

De 2007 a 2009 saímos munidas de celulares com nossas bicicletas para percorrer durante períodos de cerca de 3h30minutos (aproximadamente 35 Km) diferentes regiões (e bairros) da cidade de São Paulo. Divirta-se neste percurso discursivo.

(aqui trocamos o teclado de piano por uma interface de pads - como em um midi-controller)

"CAMINANTE NO HAY CAMINO, SE HACE CAMINO AL ANDAR ... CAMINANTE SON TUS HUELLAS EN EL CAMINO Y NADA MÁS"

Extracto de Proverbios y cantares (XXIX), Antonio Machado - Poemas del Alma

Caminante, son tus huellas
el camino y nada más;
Caminante, no hay camino,
se hace camino al andar.
Al andar se hace el camino,
y al volver la vista atrás
se ve la senda que nunca
se ha de volver a pisar.
Caminante no hay camino
sino estelas en la mar.

estelas en la mar... o vídeo que abre hoje o canal do PSM no Youtube é uma ode a Otávio Donasci. Ode muito bem vinda em se tratando de como as "vídeo-criaturas" impregnaram a formação de toda uma geração da chamada "arte digital brasileira". Performances Panopticadas (aqui) é, por exemplo, um trabalho que seguramente bebeu no brasileiro Donasci.

E recordando o final de minha adolescência, um pouco de Serrat e Sabina (pode parecer um pouco clichê, pois vejam como o público todo neste show conhece bem os principais versos e assim tem sido)... versos estes que permeiam ainda hoje o imaginário de muitos, até mesmo da atual instituição representante de uma cultura digital brasileira, enfim, quando a poesia em espanhol encontra o digital. ;)

Todo pasa y todo queda
Pero lo nuestro es pasar,
Pasar haciendo caminos,
Caminos sobre la mar.

Nunca perseguí la gloria,
Ni dejar en la memoria
De los hombres mi canción;
Yo amo los mundos sutiles,
Ingrávidos y gentiles
Como pompas de jabón.

Me gusta verlos pintarse
Ante el sol y grana a volar,
Bajo el cielo azul temblar,
Súbitamente y quebrarse...
Nunca perseguí la gloria.

Caminante son tus huellas en el camino
y nada más;
Caminante,
no hay camino
se hace camino al andar.

Al andar se hace camino
Y al volver la vista atrás
Se ve la senda que nunca
Se ha de volver a pisar.
Caminante no hay camino
sino estelas en la mar...

Hace algún tiempo en ese lugar
Donde hoy los bosques se visten de espinos
Se oyó la voz de un poeta gritar
Caminante no hay camino, se hace camino al andar...

Golpe a golpe, verso a verso...
Murió el poeta lejos del hogar
Le cubre el polvo de un país vecino.
Al alejarse, le vieron llorar.
"caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar..."

Golpe a golpe, verso a verso...
Cuando el jilguero no puede cantar
Cuando el poeta es un peregrino,
Cuando de nada nos sirve rezar.
Caminante no hay camino, se hace camino al andar.

Golpe a golpe, verso a verso. (3 bises)

[R] CCTV Hacking :: From Surveillance to Broadcast #02

Michelle Teran is another artist with the same issue about capture wireless surveillance video signals (tks Paola for remember me about her!)

michelleteran

'Life: a user's manual' is a series of public performances and online mappings that examine the hidden stories captured by private wireless CCTV streams and how they intersect with the visible world around us.
...
The action of walking through the city and intercepting wireless surveillance feeds becomes a journey narrative of transient states, intertwinings between place and non-place, between the visible and the invisible, as one moves through and inhabits both the physical and the mediated. The city is a 'network of nowheres' defined by transience and absence, by borders and borderland states.

André Lemos publicou tbm texto sobre o assunto no ano passado (2009):

Outro projeto interessante é o “Life. A User’s Manual” da canadense Michelle Teran. O projeto detecta vídeos de CCTV que usam redes Wi-Fi e os expõem na rua. A artista desenvolveu um dispositivo que intercepta essas imagens e, invertendo a lógica, as expões para os passantes no espaço público. Há aqui uma referência explícita à obra “Vida, modo de uso” de Georges Perec. O que é interno, privado e vigiado por poucos vira externo e visível para muitos. Como explica o site da artista:
“A tiny fraction of the radio spectrum has been allocated for public use. Taking
advantage of this unlicensed part of the spectrum, the result has been an increase in use of wireless devices that are transmitting on this narrow band. Private use
of wireless internet, cordless phones, bluetooth and wireless surveillance
cameras has turned the average consumer into 'micro-broadcasters' who transmit
their personal narratives through the airwaves. The culmination of these
autonomous and synchronous acts contributes to an invisible, ad-hoc network of
media overlaid within the socially codified spaces of urban environments, the
café, the home, the apartment building, the office, the store, the bar, the hallway,
the entrance, the parking lot and the street. 'Life: a user's manual' focuses on the
use of wireless surveillance cameras within public and private places that
transmit on the 2.4 Ghz frequency band. Easily intercepted using a consumer
model video scanner, the captured, live images create a sequence of readings and
views of the city and its inhabitants which are observed while walking through
the streets.”( http://www.ubermatic.org/life/)

[R] 2.4GHz surveillance video signals

"CCTV Hacking :: From Surveillance to Broadcast"

Surveillance ct4ctimage

Stencil by Banksy

I was talking about surveillance again in another art list and remember an interesting art work on this issue. For me it is so interesting because a dynamic difference between this proposal to another ones around surveillance issue: beside most of them is under to create and/or to perform with surveillance cameras system, Benjamin Gaulon has been walking around different towns in Europe to collect and record footage received with a device that search and capture surveillance video signals.

Do you know other art (or activist) work with surveillance issue in
our 21st century?!
Please tell us about then

participants are invited to explore the CCTV wireless networks of their city by searching and recording 2.4GHz surveillance video signals.

LAST DAYS FOR web.sharing.tv.content ULTIMOS DIAS

* EUR 3.000 Price Sum
* Submission deadline (extended): 30/4/2010
------------------------------

esta eh a primeira vez do premio para projetos de televisao digital e interativa. o tema do congresso deste ano eh "web.sharing.tv.content".

ULTIMOS DIAS PRA INSCRICAO

Picture 1


Pressing play and watching as moving images unfold on a screen or display is ultimately – in the eyes of the audience – a desire to enjoy an experience. We might want to watch a movie to be entertained or the news to stay informed on current events. Watching an episode of a favourite TV-series might help us decompress after a long day of hard work. Interacting with the content adds to that experience. For example, playing online games in relation to a television documentary might enhance learning in a fun way, checking out the video clip a friend recommended via the mobile phone is a shared experience adding to the feeling of relatedness, and creating mashups and uploading them online is a cool and challenging way to present one’s competence and creativity.

EuroITV 2010 Grand Challenge Competition wants to premiere creators, developers and designers of interactive video content, applications and services that enhance the television and video viewing experience for consumers worldwide. Does your product, content, or service add to the positive experience the television audience is looking for? Are you about to rock the world of interactive video consumption and storytelling? Tell us all about it!

The entries of the competition are expected to take a stand on the following questions, for example:

- How might new technologies improve the enjoyment of watching television in the eyes of the audience?

- What are the opportunities for innovative, creative storytelling offered by the multitude of platforms available today?

An international jury of interactive media experts will honour and award the best entry with a total prize sum of 3.000 € as well as additional prices for excellence in enhancing the viewing experience. The EuroITV 2010 Competition Grand Challenge award may be given to one entry, divided between several entries or not awarded at all, if the award criteria set by the jury are not fulfilled.
