what is EYEO?
an assembly of creative coders / data
designers/ designers / artists
...so clearly, I’m not a coder or

thinkers + culture makers
in the world today.

garbled notes
some ideas may be paraphrased, but all

  6. 6. Can a machine draw the same way I can? IMAGE: FRIEDER NAKE
  7. 7. Frieder Nake • A true pioneer in digital media known for his groundbreaking efforts in algorithmic arts, who believes there is not complete unity between the algorithmic world and the artistic world • a perspective on artificial intelligence - it is only truly possibly if the behavior you are trying to elicit is computable - non-computable behaviors are infinite. (“There Should Be No Computer Art”, 1971) • “paintings are waiting in museums because they want to talk to us - the museum of the future will be completely interactive” wikipedia.org/wiki/Frieder_Nake
  8. 8. Lillian Schwartz • Lillian Schwartz is the original gangster digital artist - and the first digital artist to be acquired by MoMA • one of the pioneers of abstract computer graphics she was one of the only females at Bell Laboratories in the 60’s - understanding machine language and playing with color and 3D effects well before it became a “thing”

  11. 11. “the shape of my thoughts” • drawing is a mixture of what your are seeing and what you are imagining • drawing is a means to figuring out exactly what it is you’re thinking • to structure information • to explore elements • to refine an idea • captures whimsy and emotion in interfaces sometimes lost in digital world giorgialupi.net http://giorgialupi.net/2014/07/01/eyeo-2014-the-shapes-of-my-thoughts/

  14. 14. we can dance • Daily tous les jours - Montreal based multidisciplinary projects at the intersection of participation, design and technology • Breathing some magic into everyday spaces inviting the public to become active participants in the process and outcome • Kit Operette - interactive operetta • gesture based design, inspired by marionettes • “Kit Opérette is a playful interactive game that invites visitors to slip into the persona of iconic characters from an operetta. Visitors sing and dance their way through a dynamic decor that is virtually and physically reminiscent of a period operetta. Every player adopts different parts in the performance, each following opportunely placed props and instructions, together creating a piece that evolves along with their participation.” read more dailytouslesjours.com

  18. 18. “future proof music” • “future music” is more indicative of a moment now than it is of the actual future • “future music” could not contain lyrics • cannot be rhythmic - tied to physiology • eternal music would just be tomes • Computer Music: machines making music for each other, not just for humans • Daisy 1961- Bell Labs + Hall (IBM) • Hatsune Miku - Japan’s socially constructed pop star, spurred on entirely new kind of fan culture that could never be supported by a human. clairelevans.com
  19. 19. Social glitches: the breaking of social contracts lauren-mccarthy.com
  20. 20. hacking social norms • Lauren McCarthy explores those slightly uncomfortable moments when patterns are shifted, expectations are broken, and participants become aware of the system • Conversacube - stimulating conversation and interaction • Us+ - Google hangout app that analyzes speech and facial expression to improve conversation • CrowdPilot - crowdsourcing dating advice • Using version control to manage a long distance relationship (gitHub) lauren-mccarthy.comsource:
