My Desktop Life

Submitted by net-art on Wed, 11/19/2014 - 21:13

My Desktop Life is a new tool made to create online in a very free and personal way. It’s now on view in Art On Your Screen in ZKM Karlsruhe, who initially sponsored its creation.

With my new tool I could make several short films entirely created in a browser and displayed inside a browser. 
Here you can watch a creation I made called “This is home”.

Watch it, it’s seven minutes long and if you want to know how it’s made, follow my instructions. Notice on the left-hand top corner a very small check box, click on it, and see the film editor at work. Don’t hesitate to play with it and modify whatever you want in order to understand the functioning.
This prototype of an online editor is an opening for new opportunities of creations inside a browser.
 I’m currently working on the interface that will let user create with the use of the same tool as mine.
Next year, you will hear more about it.
 So stay tuned.

With MyDesktopLife, it is just the beginning of a long story of online creation.

oulipo (Fr. Ouvroir de Litterature Potentielle = Workshop for Potential Literature)

The six works presented in "Oulipoems" range from poems, to poetry games, to tools for writing poetry. They are inspired by the Oulipo movement, a French literary movement which combines writing and mathematics. Members of the Oulipo create works of literature that are governed by rules ("constraints"). For example, all words might have to contain only the vowel 'e' or words might be spelled phonetically. Members of the Ouliopo are also interested in algorithmically generated texts, including, especially, text-generating machines which can result in an infinite, or at least very large, number of different texts.

Nobody here

A blog reconfigured as an interactive experience, Nobody Here. The viewer is invited to play, though the goofy fun of the interactive elements is balanced by the emotional weight of the writing. Visitors can also choose an insect icon to represent themselves, then leave comments on individual pages. If you encounter Herman the hermit crab, try shaking him out of his shell.

Nonrepetitive

Sound artwork: Nonrepetitive by Achim Wollscheid

Through the graphical interface the user/participant can influence the parameters of a sound data generator, effecting things like sound colour, density and complexity. The impact of the change can be seen on the interface by other users visiting at the same time, in another place and they may also mutually interfere through the interface, in order to change the generation of sound.

Once you grab the line - representing the present wave spectrum of what is to be heard - and change it, any other user online on this page will witness the alteration. In other words, this piece is not an applet that you download, but an online piece that you actually change on the server while others can watch, listen, and equally interact. The piece is thus subject to a play or negotiation between partners.

"Mez does for code poetry as jodi and Vuk Cosic have done for ASCII Art: Turning a great, but naively executed concept into something brilliant, paving the ground for a whole generation of digital artists." (Florian Cramer). The impact of her unique code/net.wurks [constructed via her pioneering net.language "mezangelle"] has been equated with the work of Shakespeare, James Joyce, Emily Dickinson, and Larry Wall. Mez has exhibited extensively since the early 90s.

Grammatron

The GRAMMATRON project is a "public domain narrative environment" developed by virtual artist Mark Amerika in conjunction with the Brown University Graduate Creative Writing Program and the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Graphics and Visualization Center as well as with the support of many individuals without whom none of this would be possible.

letters demand things

having obtained identities long ago, they now demand to be typed, spoken, traced, heard, and related to in specific ways. and yet, for all their demands, they only exist as reflections of human handwriting and visual echoes of muscles and air working in concert to give them life as sound waves.

these two pieces examine some of these relationships and how we affect them as we become a part of the process. as in life, the experience of them will be unique each time they are opened, so if you are dissatisfied with a given configuration, feel free to destroy the window and try again.

Filmtext 2.0

Launch project

FILMTEXT 2.0 is an experimental digital narrative that blends the conventions of videogames with media theory. The protagonist of FILMTEXT 2.0, known as the digital thoughtographer, navigates through landscapes of digital information. Players may assume this role or tag along as 'metatourist.' The intense soundtrack was created by Amerika with the sound artist Twine, and is finely tuned to the interactions of the user. America also collaborated with Flash developer John Vega.
