Where Teatro Fondamenta Nuove, Sestiere Cannaregio 5013, Venice, Italy
| The Method |
spettacolo di danza interattiva
di Martin Romeo
coreografia | Nicoletta Cabassi
danzatori | Cristine Sonia Baraga e Andrea Zardi
musiche | Stefano D'Alessio
evento in collaborazione con Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Toolkit Festival e Università IUAV di Venezia
Gli incroci tra linguaggi e discipline artistiche sono sempre al centro dell’attenzione del Teatro Fondamenta Nuove di Venezia.
È certamente questo il caso di The Method, spettacolo di danza interattiva ideato dall’artista neomediale Martin Romeo che debutterà sabato 25 gennaio alle ore 21 in un evento speciale che si preannuncia da non perdere e che è caratterizzato dalla felice collaborazione con la Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, il Toolkit Festival e l’Università Iuav di Venezia.
The Method è un'opera ai confini tra performance e installazione e s’inserisce all’interno del progetto artistico di Martin Romeo, focalizzato sull’esplorazione del corpo umano in relazione con la tecnologia digitale. Il lavoro dell’artista, ora in residenza presso la Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, implica l’utilizzo della tecnologia finalizzata alla costruzione d’installazioni e spettacoli di danza interattiva in cui lo spettatore, avvicinandosi all’opera, annulli il proprio ruolo di osservatore passivo.
L’idea di creare uno spettacolo in cui confluiscono proiezioni digitali e danza contemporanea nasce dall'intenzione di far convergere diverse forme artistiche in un'unica esperienza, in cui i ruoli del performer e del regista non siano più nettamente distinti, ma si fondano coinvolgendo anche il pubblico in una dimensione totalizzante.
In The Method i due danzatori Cristine Sonia Baraga e Andrea Zardi, su coreografia di Nicoletta Cabassi e accompagnati dalle musiche di Stefano D'Alessio, daranno vita ad un’opera dall'autorialità multipla in cui l’aspetto interattivo connetterà danza, musica e scenografia digitale. Lo spettacolo culminerà in un’installazione permanente che sarà esposta presso la sede della Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa in Piazza San Marco a Venezia in occasione della mostra finale degli studi.
The Method è stato preceduto dalla performance interattiva Label che Martin Romeo ha presentato al Teatro Miela di Trieste nel 2011, nell’ex Chiesa di Santa Marta a Venezia e al Centro Culturale Trevi di Bolzano nel 2012 e infine al Kilowatt Festival di Sansepolcro nel 2013. Il progetto continuerà durante una residenza artistica presso Inside-Out Art Museum di Pechino a partire da febbraio 2014.
Martin Romeo è un artista multimediale la cui ricerca è rivolta all’arte interattiva, spaziando tra videoinstallazioni e performance di danza. Nato a Carrara nel 1986, cresce a Buenos Aires fino al ritorno in Italia nel 1999. Partecipa a numerosi festival internazionali, tra cui il Festival of Youth Experimental Art Projects in Bielorussia e il 29° International Sarajevo Winter Festival in Bosnia-Erzegovina. I suoi lavori sono stati esposti presso i Musei Capitolini alla Centrale Montemartini di Roma, in Slovenia a Maribor (capitale europea della cultura 2012), e a varie biennali tra cui la 54° Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte di Venezia, all’interno del Padiglione Italia di Porto Vecchio a Trieste, e la 15° Biennale del Mediterraneo a Salonicco in Grecia. Come direttore artistico del Toolkit Festival di Venezia è riuscito a creare un punto d’incontro per l’arte interattiva in Italia.

UNRENDER SESSIONS WORKSHOPS 17.01 | 18 - 22h
Peter Kirn / Fluid Architecture Workshop
Transforming space with responsive sound, projection
When we imagine architectural space, we return to a millennia-long tradition of things that are fixed and solid, made of wood and stone, brick and steel. But increasingly-pervasive digital technology means media that can change: data, pixels, and generated image and sound.
In this hands-on workshop, we'll experiment with ways of molding those media to make a space that changes. We'll take input from microphones, cameras, and sensors, including the Kinect camera, and see how the computer can respond to presence in a space. We'll also look at how generated sound and music, imagery, or data visualization can translate these inputs to a space.
Examples will be given in free, open-source, cross-platform tools, including the Processing creative coding environment and Pure Data patching tool.
Some experience with one of these is recommended to get more out of the workshop, but is not required; we'll also have some examples that absolute beginners can use for experimentation.
Please do bring a laptop running Windows or OS X (or, if you're comfortable with it, Linux).

Where Muthesius Kunsthochschule, Legienstr. 35, 24103 Kiel, Germany
I will give a speech @ Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel about my work as a media artist and designer with heavy vvvv use since beta 13 !
A thank you! to Christian Engler (u7angel) for the invitation!
so another year has just passed and yo shall get your - almost traditional already - peek at your numbers. if you're new and need a bit of a "what happened so far" start with vvvv-in-numbers-2012.
otherwise spoiler: 2013 was a good year. we were treated with another edition of the node festival by the team around david where vux released his incroyable dx11 pack and just when you thought the year was over tonfilm droped his nextgeneration audio pack... expected more? of course you did...
so here goes what google tells us about you. basically we see germany being gelangweilt, the us loosing hope, russia taking another step - спасибо! - and because italy sta fava la france avance aussi en grade.
|1. germany||18.22%||1. germany (-)||16.82%||1. germany (+)||16.99%||1. germany (+)||17.02%|
|2. usa||9.61%||2. usa (+)||11.36%||2. usa (-)||10.72%||2. usa (-)||9.87%|
|3. uk||6.81%||3. uk (-)||6.33%||3. uk (-)||6.31%||3. russia (+)||5.78%|
|4. france||6.28%||4. france (-)||5.17%||4. russia (+)||4.98%||4. uk (-)||5.64%|

what you don't see and which is actually the more interesting bits is whats going on in the lower ranks. i cannot be bothered creating another table for those but here is the gist: Japan (followed by Spain) shows the highest gain in people accessing vvvv.org. one can only speculate how this will develop when mino gets serious and japan sees its very own vvvv book...おはよう!
also i found it interesting to see london still being number 2 among the vvvv capitals while the rest of its country seems to have lost interest: 1. Berlin, 2. London, 3. Moscow, 4. Seoul, 5.Frankfurt, 6. St. Petersburg
here again you see how insignificant all the numbers are as bo27 alone can reload his city to spot 6!
overall again we see a delicate increase in unique visitors:
the access pattern looks quite unchanged (blue: 2013, orange: 2012). no worky on saturdays and sundays and not at all during summer:
i've heard complaints recently that the forum is not so active anymore and specifically noob questions are missing so there must be something wrong. my snobbish answer then was, this must be due to the ever improving documentation and the forum-search working so well that noobs just see all their questions answered before they can even think about asking. thoughts anyone? ah and also at this point yo shall be reminded of the meticulous work by robotanton on the next generation girlpowers which will soon turn vvvv into the most thoroughly documented multipurpose toolkit ever. anyway the forum stats show a slight increase in new (1398) and unanswered (144) threads.
recently we saw some new translators of wiki-pages and regulars updating their translations. so overall wiki-activity also saw a slight increase compared to last 2012.
spam again increased massively. we had around 1000 (onethousand) more new users registered than the year before most of which just fired into our spam-prophylactics. the number of active (= at least 3 postings) users was 427 which is slowly but steady growing since the beginning of our recordings.
and finally here is to announce the downfall of the internet:
chrome 51% (42%), ff 22% (27%), safari 12% (14%), ie 7% (11%)
kids, google is not the internet!
downloads also seem to grow inconspicuously except i consider it a good sign that the ratio between downloads of the core and the addons has again increased.
* x86 and x64 combined
licenses were bought by 69 companies from 17 different countries. that is more different companies then ever (52 in 2011, 61 in 2012), which is fantastic but should it worry us that they are coming from fewer countries every year (19 in 2011, 18 2012)?
below you see a statistic of licenses sold per country. interesting to see that while the british are loosing interest in the website (see above) they still buy second to most licenses...professionals indeed. and you also see japan already warming up from out-of-range to number 4, ohh unicode... а россия? соберись!
|1. germany||47%||1. germany||43%||1. germany||48%||1. germany||65%||1. germany||55%|
|2. switzerland||21%||2. austria||25%||2. italy||27%||2. uk||10%||2. uk||25%|
|3. uk||19%||3. uk||17%||3. uk||12%||3. switzerland||8%||3. austria||3%|
|4. austria||6%||4. russia||4%||4. usa||3%||4. russia||5%||4. japan||2.8%|
|5. italy||3%||5. switzerland||4%||5. austria||3%||5. austria||3%||5. russia||2.5%|
|6. russia||1%||6. south korea||3%||6. switzerland||2%||6. spain||2%||6. france||2.5%|
note to self: consider disabling vvvv.org for ips from the usa. their webaccess:license ratio has been consistently unacceptable over the years.
but most importantly the blue line has an upward trend again which is not least because of the Quad sales.
so we bow to the contributors of this trend and want to challenge everyone to keep it that way. in this regard simply only more is more. and also don't just buy all your licenses at the end of the year when you have money left or get an email from us. just make sure your licenses are paid the day your project launches. kids..
so weit. thanks for listening. thanks for your contributions. thanks for reporting bugs. thanks for using vvvv. and if everything goes according to our non-existing plan this year we should see some strange developments for vvvv. more soon™.
all the best for 2014,

Back to the roots ist vom 09.01. bis zum 12.01. das Motto in der bekannten Party- und Konzertlocation direkt an der Reeperbahn, denn 114 Jahre zuvor öffnete an selber Stelle das erste Lichtspielhaus Deutschlands. Eberhard Knopf präsentierte seinen Gästen hier im Jahr 1900 mit dem „Lebenden Laufbild“ eine Sensation und führte sie an eine ganz neue Form der Kunst heran. Nun ist es Zeit der Geschichte neues Leben einzuhauchen.
Hamburger Lichtkünstler zeigen drei Tage lang, wie aus dem technischen Wandel heraus eine neue Kunstform entstanden ist. Während die Prinzenbar in einer 360° Projektion erstrahlt, wird es in anderen Ecken der Locations Workshops und interaktive Ausstellungen geben. Klassische Musik trifft auf moderne Technik und Technopartys werden live visuell bespielt.
There will be a VVVV Beginner Workshop on Saturday(DMX/Arduino)

As promised a year ago there are no more vvvv releases on the 24th of december.
But that does not stop any of us to release stuff on the 25th of december.
With great pleasure the first alpha preview of the new vvvv audio engine is here in the beloved vvvv-pack format. The focus of the engine was not so much DSP programming but flexible signal routing for large scale installations and VST support: vvvv.audio-pack-alpha
And here is a little x-mas amateur demo video of the audio engine:
Have some nice holidays with the new toys!
And be aware, its windows only!
We got a present for your christmas holidays. We - the Prototyping Interfaces team, finally updated all our patches to get them up and running with the latest version of vvvv: 45beta31.2!
Get the bundle here: http://prototypinginterfaces.com/
As a reference you can still download the patch bundle for vvvv_45beta29.2, which is exactly the version we used while developing the book.

It is with great pleasure that today after a year of tough negotiations we can finally announce a winner in the bidding for a license to monetize the Quad. We congratulate the TinkerSoup - Berlin Based Electronic Kitchen online store who beat competitors like the itunes-store, google-play and the amazon-marketplace for reasons undisclosed.

So just-in-time for this consumerist time of the year we announce the immediate availabilty of all the Quads in the series. The quads offer an ultimate universal unibody user experience. They are massively multitouch and only your imagination is the limit of their applications. Manufactured from pure concrete with a grain size of 1mm max and doubly reinforced for extra strengh they are also totally vegan. The Quad comes in four flavours NANO, MINI, CLASSIC and MEGA. Insert coin after the click:
Also incidentally this announcement comes not randomly but exactly one year after the Quads initial materialization that was 10 days before the 10th anniversary of vvvv which was celebrated with a befitting festivity at the Letters Are My Friends - Typographic Concept Store which by the press was dubbed "no ordinary party". Well,... it brought together all the international vvvv jetset, they served alcohol and look, they even sent a tv-crew:
