Flaming Books

I found another book with a flame on the cover: Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness by Fred Kuttner. The last one was just a couple months ago, The Story of Science: Einstein Adds a New Dimension by Joy Hakim.

Photos from Moscow Hybrid Art

What an experience. I did my best to capture it with my new LX3. See the gallery.

See the announcement with more info about the show.

GECCO 2010 Art Competition

GECCO is the premier conference on genetic and evolutionary computation, and they are once again hosting an art competition (sponsored by nVidia). All media are accepted as long as the process is relevant. The deadline is June 18th and the details are on their site. I am honored to be on the jury this year, along with Christian Gagné and Jeffrey Ventrella. I think they asked Jeff and me because we were the winners last year (something I didn't blog about before, but Clade 1).

Hybrid Art Show

I am thrilled to say I'm in Moscow for the Lexus Hybrid Art show. It came together quite quickly and on a large scale -- the art here is amazing, the equipment and building are great, and the support staff are professional and talented.

The exhibition is open to the public April 2nd-4th (the 1st was the press/private opening) at Vitoshniy 13-15, in downtown Moscow right next to Red Square.

I have a multi-projector immersive installation with HiFiDreams, and I'm part of the show/performance in the evening. They have 4 projection screens each 15x20 feet and 16k lumen projectors. I do one VJ set for an hour, then later show HiFiDreams (4 channel from 4 computers) on the screens while a harpist/singer plays.

This is a group show and the curation is excellent: Double Negative, Loop.pH, me, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Lawrence Malstaf, Jin-Yo Mok, Andreas Muxel, Daan Roosegaarde, and Gebhard Sengmüller. I am honored to be in such good company.

Thanks to the organizers and sponsor (Lexus).

Update: the gallery of photos from the event.
