  • 1. ART AND TECHNOSCIENCE Biocybrid body and rituals in urban mixed lifeAuthors: Diana Domingues, Camila Hamdan, Leci AugustoInstitution: University of Brasília, LART – Research Laboratory of Artand TechnoScience, UnB-Gama, Brazil. Prof. Dr. Diana Domingues Pesquisador Visitante Nacional Sênior – PVNS/CAPES CNPq- Minyster of Science and Technology University of Brasilia, UnB Gama – FGA BRAZIL Programa de Pós-Graduação em Arte LART - Laboratory of Research in Art and Technoscience

  • 3. For forty years the Leonardo organizations havehad the privilege of witnessing, and helping todocument, a birth of new forms of innovativeand creative practice.Especially during the last ten years a newgeneration of artists scientifically and technicallyliterate, “new Leonardos” , have beencreating contemporary art forms, and in theprocess making new technicalinventions and in some cases, scientificdiscoveries.Roger Malina 
  • 4. How to synthesize Leonardo?Efficient collaborative practices dissolves the oldrupture and the well-known historical divergencesbetween artists and scientists.The main point of convergence is when all disciplinesinvestigate the same problems, all sciences becomeone unique science.

L IF EArt and Science explore the ontology of life withlevels of reality that attempt to conciliate paradoxesand conflicts related to changes an challenges oflifeSCIENCE OF INTERFACE - EMERGENT REALITIES – EXTERNALIZATION OFPERCEPTSWhat is landscape now?What is body now?What is urban life now?The sense of presence –expanded perception –Social relationshipsSpace here and there

Symbiotic zones intertwined relationships body/environment/nets• expanded sensorium for biofeedback: heat, heartbeats, electrical potentials, breathing, galvanic sensors and skin, laws and phenomena of the cosmos, operational hermeneutics of software, plurissensorial and crossmodal interfaces, human physiology and the perceptive, cognitive and affective expansion and supplementation, trasnphysiology of passion -always mixed to our human condition in the physical world and the hybrid “life” of raw materials.

  • 9. Weiser : invisible computer in the future 2005 – 2020The computer "disappear" and goes to the "peripheries“ubiquitous computing” was proposed by scientist Mark Weiser, in 1991, to designate aprofound change in computing platforms. These changes inaugurate other models of computing,where computers are effectively integrated into the environments in all daily practices beyond theuses and behaviors desktop metaphors machines . “calm technologies”- transparent interfaces - mobile and portabledevices, sentient objects

Interfaces : ubiquous computing, locative, pervasive and sencientmobile technologiesmobile interfaces: cell phones MMS and SMS to communicate with our platform they send theirtattoos to the platformLocative interfaces: GPS and Google Maps. GPS mapping andtracking system generates urban flow of tattooed in the city’sbuses ( VISATE).
  • 13. • The final theoretical version denominatedLIVING TATTOOS IN Cybrid Reality is a collaboration for the field in Brazil, and the practice adds performative BIOCYBRID REALITY components to the Living Tattoos project.

She has a Reality result from tags tattooed on the skin, bachelor degree at the University of Mato Grosso do and performative art allows the forms to appear Sul, where Prof. Dulcimira Capisani was focused on art out of the body by augmented reality and technology researches. After the professor died, she techniques . moved in 2006 to Caxias do Sul University, only to spend a time in the NTAV Lab and to follow Diana Domingues courses Art Department. She was invited and she got Involved in the creative atmosphere of the Lab and • Augmented reality become familiar to the context on art and sciences with all the participant of the LIVING TATTOOS ( embedded technologies). Domingues oriented Camila to optimize his studies at the MASTER IN ARTS of University of Brasilia, developing researches in Augmented reality. performance

  • 15. Opened Body Connection (performance) is a biocybrid system in augmented reality expandedto mixed reality in a bodily continuum of flesh - cyberdata and physical space . During a ritual,in a public event, a tattoo artist inscribed on the back of the performer the computationlanguage of the code a wing shape. The tattoo became a mixed reality system, only read incomputer vision and during two hours, other printed tags on the body provided three-dimensional animations traveled through the body transmitted on line. Animated wingsrespond to the artist´dream of flyingOpened Body Connection – Camila Hamdan, MOBILEFEST – Festival Internacional deCriatividade Móvel. Brazil, 2009.

  • 20. BIOCYBRID URBAN LIFEArtworks in wearable art and biocybrid systems in LART use technological innovationregarding the miniaturization of hardware systems that have enabled the developmentof network sensor nodes, which allow new applications for interconnected wirelessnetworks.According to Carvalho (2005), those sensors have the ability to detect or measuresome phenomenon of nature, processing and transmitting data or information toother sensors. In our artworks the circuit of sensors a node of sensors are built in anintelligent network sensor inserted in a set accessoriesrings, bracelets, visors, or other wearables thingswhich coupled to bodies configure a Biocybrid Wearable Art System (BWAS), thatallows people to monitor, process and send to other biosensors vital signalsinformation and data over a long period of time.Biosignals connections in cyberspace expand body life in physical space and it isconfigured the biocybrid condition.
