How to grow a plastic garden?

  • David Hahlbrock
  • SS 2013, Fachseminar
  • Donnerstags 16:30-18:30
  • Lab3

Wachstum wird in den verschiedensten gesellschaftlichen Kontexten beobachtet und beschreibt immer zeitgebundene Prozesse der Zunahme und Vermehrung. Die Bevölkerung wächst. Die Städte mutieren zu Megacities. Hedgefonds wuchern und das kann negatives Wirtschaftswachstum zur Folge haben. Tiere wachsen oft in Hochhäusern und die Pflanzen wachsen wild oder kultiviert – auf der Erde und sogar im All. Menschen können in Reagenzgläsern wachsen. Im Laufe des Lebens wächst oder schrumpft jeder. Das größte Lebewesen der Welt ist ein 2400 Jahre alter Pilz, der sich auf über 880 Hektar verbreitet hat. Und wie wächst das was man will? Welches Wachstum kann man beeinflussen? Was wächst wann? Wo wächst was?

Netze

 

Grundlagenseminar

Mittwochs, 16 – 18 Uhr
Filzengraben 8 – 10, Lab3

 

We will explore the term ‘net’ on the basis of current electronic communication technologies. How is the nature of electromagnetic waves used to imprint information and thereby realize the rapidly growing interconnetion of everyday things?

But the technologies of wireless communication are not at the center of the seminar. We are asking about the general principles of networking. In system theory for example networks are loosely coupled autonomous objects that only by mutual dependencies and permanent communication build an entity that we call network. We use and program (on arduino basis) a set of mechanical spiders to examine the basic terminology of networks.

 

(image: cobweb constructed by spiders under the influence of different drugs like LSD, ecstasy, caffeine, marihuana)

Material for the seminar networks/netze

Neural oscillators are interesting because they allow to create rhythmic behavior in a very elegant way. They can be realized with just two mathematical equations that describe the behavior of two mutually coupled systems in time.

Code and Material WS 2012/13

Georg Trogemann, Martin Nawrath

Grundlagenseminar Material/Skulptur/Code

Wednesdays, weekly 14:00 – 16:00 pm

Filzengraben 8-10, Lab3

 

Code is a run-of-the-mill material. What only two decades ago belonged to the exclusive field of engineers and programmers today is omnipresent and part of the standard equipment in many different design and production processes. Thereby Code is a material like any other. Its basic possibilities, qualities and behavior have to be explored, routines have to be practiced and the stubbornness of the material has to be experienced. Autonomous behavior, networking, collaboration and interaction are features the new semiotic material supports.

Posthuman – Technics & Life

  • Marie-Luise Angerer, Georg Trogemann
  • SS 2012, Theory Seminar, Haupt- und postgraduales Studium + Gäste
  • Mondays 2-6 p.m.
  • Room 2.04, Filzengraben 8-10

With Norbert Wieners Cybernetics or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine (1948) technology starts to play with life. Since these early days of Cybernetics methologies have made great progress. We no longer just try to explore the common basis of life and technology but technically alter the processes of life and vice versa biologically control technical processes.


The seminar presents a general view of the developments since Wiener and puts relevant researchers and current projects and literature up for discussion.

  • February 7th-18th, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Lab3, Filzengraben 8-10

Materials are a cetral topic of artistic practice, they are carrriers and media of ideas. In contrast, computers are thought to embody the immaterial. But with the advent of small pervasive computing devices that act in reactive environments, materiality unexpectedly gets a renaissance. The seminar teaches the basics of  programming and working with microcontrollers and then focuses on laboratory work and the creation and discussion of small experiments that probe the relation of code and materiality.

Material ist der Ausgangsstoff jeder künstlerischen Arbeit, es ist Träger und Medium der Idee. Computer- und Kommunikationsmedien gelten dagegen als Inbegriff des Immateriellen. In den letzten Jahren erleben wir das Verschwinden des Computers in den Dingen ihrer Umgebung. Handelnde Objekte in reaktiven Umgebungen sind aber nur durch Arbeit am Material realisierbar und verstehbar.

Die Virtualität des Datenuniversums täuscht leicht darüber hinweg, dass sich dahinter eine handfeste ‘Schwerindustrie’ von Supercomputern, Datenleitungen und Peripheriegeräten verbirgt. Diese eigentümliche Ambivalenz von Schwere und Schwerelosigkeit, von Materialität und Dematerialisierung, von Hardware und Software ist Thema des Seminars.

Zufall und Determinismus

  • Georg Trogemann, Lasse Scherffig in cooperation with Bauhaus University Weimar, Ursula Damm
  • SS 09, Workshop
  • June 11-20
  • Motovun, Croatia

Wir betrachten die Welt heute nicht mehr als deterministisch ablaufendes Uhrwerk und das Leben als gottgegebenes Schicksal. Das, was uns „zu-fällt“ gehorcht in der Masse zwar strikten mathematischen Regeln, für den Einzelnen ist das Zufällige aber ein kreatives Element der Alltagsrealität. In den Wissenschaften wie in der individuellen Lebensplanung geht es nicht mehr darum, den Zufall aus der Welt zu schaffen, sondern ihn als Notwendigkeit zu erkennen und als Quelle für Handlungsspielräume zu nutzen.

Der Kybernetiker, Physiker, Philosoph und Gründer des legendären Biological Computing Laboratory in Illinois hat stets nachdrücklich auf die blinden Flecken unserer Beobachtung hingewiesen. Die theoretische Fassung dieses Erkenntnisproblems führte zur Entwicklung der Kybernetik 2. Ordnung – einer Theorie des Beobachters –, die philosophisch dem radikalen Konstruktivismus zugeordnet wird.

  • SS 2013, Guest Lecture
  • 24th april 2013, 16:00-18:00
  • Lab3

In late 1994, the International City Federation was founded in Berlin. Probably the most prominent Net project in Germany in the period 1995­/1996, its aim as an independent Internet provider was to make it easier for cultural projects to build up an Internet presence. The IS offered low-priced Internet access and server capacity for experimentation–a service not to be underestimated at a time when private Internet access was beyond most people’s means.

Die technologische Sinnverschiebung

Der tschechische Phänomenologe Jan Patocka hat nach Heideggers Tod von dessen “grundlegender Erfahrung” gesprochen, daß in der “Begegnung mit der Technik die ganze bisherige Philosophie problematisiert” – man könnte auch sagen: problematisch – wird. Aus dieser Erfahrung speiste sich nach Patocka Heideggers Arbeit überhaupt. Wir hätten, das sei Heideggers Überzeugung gewesen, “in der Technik etwas vor uns, das wir gedanklich noch nicht zu bewältigen vermögen. Wir müssen anfangen, anders zu denken.”


Erich Hörl ist Juniorprofessor für Medientechnik und Medienphilosophie an der Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Zu seinen gegenwärtigen Forschungsschwerpunkten zählen: Die technologische Bedingung; Arbeit und Technik. Geschichte und Grenzen der ergontologischen Verfassung; Abendländischer Okularismus. Geschichte der Anschauung und das Denken des Auges; Beschreibungen des Humanen: Prothetik, Artifizialität; Heidegger und die Maschine.

Akustische Musikinstrumente haben in unserer Kultur über Jahrhunderte hinweg eine zentrale Rolle gespielt. Baumaterialien aus der Elektro- und Informationstechnik haben Aufbau, Funktion, Spiel- und Wirkungsweise aktueller Musikinstrumente verändert bis komplett “über den Haufen geworfen” und viele neue Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten eröffnet. Dennoch lehnen viele MusikerInnen elektronische oder Synthesizer-Instrumente immer noch ab, oft mit dem Argument, dass ihnen hier wesentliche Qualitäten für das Musizieren fehlen.
