Project: Fluid variations 	  

A contemporary update and a creative reworking of Albert Camus's "The Myth of Sisyphus", S for Sisyphus is an experimental video game project aiming to explore action, meaning, and human intentionality via a simple animated and playable experience. It consists of two related but standalone versions: S for Sisyphus ¬ (playable version) and S for Sisyphus ∞ (machinima version), each articulates the theme of the work with a slightly different accent and experience.

Project: Phase Shift

The generative metamedia installation and performance Phase Shift (2016) explores an aesthetic interpretation and contamination between art and science, taking as reference the concept “double slit experiment” developed by the scientist Thomas Young in (1800). Back then he proposed a theory for the understating of light waves that generated interference and diffraction with each other like the sound waves, creating a light wavering pattern in a close relation between sound, matter and light. This concept is used in this project that I present as a reference for the visual constituents of the work integrated as a system of reaction in a chain of events: from image “light frequency and speed”, to computer modular programming “logical constituents”, passing to performative aspects of interaction with technology “indeterminism of the gesture and technology operatively” to the sound properties “emerging and decay of sonic events”. The objective was to approach the light frequency as a possibility to compose a generative sound composition of “non-deterministic music” which is directly linked to the frequency of the image: “light”, “speed” and “interference”, generate together a stochastic set of sonic events mediated through light sensors that trigger automatic events in a disordered module of a reactive diffusion system. Other aspect that was important in the development of this experiment is stimulate the level of the human sonic cognition and perception, the light as a sonic experience mediated and transformed through technology as a material, immanence and event. This experience is present in the limits of the visible territory of the real, as an energy or an electromagnetic field that flows in a continuum state of decay like the sound. The technology and science in this project are used as a metaphysical symbolic system passive to generate an aesthetic experience through the hyper-optical and hyper-sonic technological apparatus of the modern society and technological dispositives.

Project: Breaking Wave 	   

“Breaking Wave” is a fractal representation of an ocean wave. It stylistically calls attention to the medium of the 19th century painting, specifically to the style of impressionism. However with close observation of the nature of the visual form, texture and color patterns associated with the artwork, it becomes curiously ambiguous as it is not a painting but a process of fractal based mathematical iteration which creates the particular forms, textures and colors as no brush strokes or any kind of filter plugins were used in the process.

Western art in the 19th century was characterized by a crisis in representation. Many experienced a strong sense of alienation as they felt they were living in an age distinctively different from previous times and struggled to find new ways of understanding and representing the emerging new world. In the second half of the 19th century, Japanese art offered them, especially the impressionists, a new way of looking at the world, which inspired them to break free of the constraint rules of the academy.

“The Great Wave off Kanagawa” (1831), a woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai is probably the most famous image of the era which is a rendering of a large ocean wave where the top breaks off into smaller self-similar fractal like waves; the image vastly inspired impressionism and western modernism. Today we face a similar crisis as the digital revolution alters the way we create art by injecting its own aesthetics. In a sense “Breaking Wave” is a meditation on the aesthetics of new media art through the historical lens of “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” which by itself triggered a profound change in the representation of the world around us, almost two centuries ago.

Project: Fluid variations 	   

Fluid variations’ is a meditative audiovisual environment.

Indeterminate in is very nature, the structure of the piece is a terrain of possibilities, and as such has no beginning, end, or in the traditional sense progression. Its temporal arrangement is rather referential to the perception of time as a stream of continual moments, each moment containing the ability of transient contraction and expansion. The fluctuating textures, comprising image and sound, stand in a dualistic correlation of co-existing harmony. Multilayered strands of visual and acoustic transformation exist in momentary autonomy, and are synchronised only in their corresponding behavioural pattern over time.

Scordato Julian
Pordenone.  Italy
Project: Cosmophonies

Cosmophonies is a generative work based on the sonification of star data related to the north polar constellations. Sound parameters are defined by certain observation data as well as physical characteristics of stars: sound duration is proportional to the distance from the Earth, amplitude is calculated considering the apparent magnitude, frequency changes randomly according to the spectral class, while spatialization depends on the celestial coordinates. Six temporal dimensions (such as musical tempi) are added in order to activate the stars with a combinatorial system that virtually produces a perpetual change. Listeners may feel lost in a hypnotic space however distant and beyond their grasp.

Project: Non-Cartesian

Full-body motion interactive, 3D tectonic projection and sound.

Body motion interaction with digital new media especially with the rise of new media VR developments, choreographed movement with digital media and artist interactive installations, show the importance of further research into body sense and new interactive technologies. A critical review of body perception theories, from media theorists, discussing the body and technology, informed the theory and experimental practice in this research. Case studies were also made from digital-media artists working in the area of body interactives with VR, interactives, and sound art, who have explored body sense and interaction with technology. These frameworks support this research into proprioception and interaction with 3D surround visuals and sound. Simultaneous body motion interaction with 3D virtual and surround sound were explored in experimental practice with interaction of 8 body-joints, in world space coordinates.

Project: Terrains vagues wandering

A counterhegemonic social stroll into information spaces [terrains vagues wandering] terrains vagues wandering (wasteland wandering) is a stroll with the hope to find a meaning, a train of thought, that have lead us to the state of emergency, a state of no-right, a denial of differences, a negation of the nomads and the unstructured. Through a kind of “reverse engineering” of social thought, the performance follows a path that starts from startups and leadership, continues through dream (travel, love) and consumerism (mobile, apple), and leads to conflict zones (israel, gaza, palestine) and eventually to islamism, calais, and the state of emergency. The flow of tweets at the bottom of the screen, the moiré visuals obtained by complex blending between google images, and the noise composition based on soundclound samples, all rely on data collected through hashtags. The tags that build this social storyline share combinations of ideas in posts. The excessive superposition of cries to internet with ambivalent meanings, the cliched media agency visuals, and the oversampled sounds, contributes to generate a climate of discomfort and restlessness.

On top of the audiovisual noise, the graphical performance proposes symbolic or emblematic visuals. It takes advantage of these “vague” spaces to seek opportunities for creative and alternative processes to the hegemonic economic, political, and war structures of space and time. Rather than adding another artificial logic, a poetics of drawing is inserted into the interstices of the informational flow, fed by the ambivalence of this saturated space, however well-suited for vagrancy. The bonobo accompanying the graphics offers the scenes its animal and fragile innocence of endangered species... as our own species might also be?

Project: 16 × 12

The installation is mainly made out of ordinary garbage bags which are selectively inflated and deflated by small fans controlled by a microcontroller.

The plastic bags are inflated and deflated in controlled rhythms, creating wavelike animations across the wall. Although each bag is mounted in a stationary position, the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively movements. Forms appear from the matrix and disappear back into the surface. In this way shapes and the boundaries of the installation itself start to dissolve.

Project: CONVERGENCE - I	 	 	 	 	 	  

Light builds, defines and transforms the perception of space.

This project arises from an interest and fascination with the exploration of light contact surfaces.

This process of construction and transformation of a space from a physical phenomenon such as light, allows you to explore different levels of exploration. Including an approach to geometry, perspective and depth of space.
