Permutations 1 by Fred Camper

Permutations 1 by Fred Camper<p>The images used in this series, taken on March 19, 2006, show the Reuss River as it flows through the center of the ancient town of Lucerne, Switzerland. I photographed quickly, and in a nearly ecstatic state, finding myself suddenly and utterly captivated by shifting patterns in the water, as seen first from one position and then from five others. My ideas about how to organize them came later. I selected 30 images from each of the six positions. One of two groups …

Cyberspace calls us to consider the difference between animism and animation, and animation and metamorphosis. Animism suggests that entities have a ‘sprit’ that guides their behavior. Animation adds the capability of change in location, through time. Metamorphosis is change in form, through time or space. More broadly, metamorphosis implies changes in one aspect of an entity as a function of other aspects, continuously or discontinuously. I use the term liquid to mean animistic, animated, …

Water for Maya 2000 by Stan Brakhage

By Rupert Jordan

<b>By Rupert Jordan</b><p><b>Sometimes the very best illusions are those that are the most obvious.</b>English photographer Rupert Jordan is taking that thinking seriously, producing a series of images along London’s Thames river that feature the iconic landmarks lining its shores. What makes Jordan’s images so interesting? All his landmarks appear as if they are sinking into a massive flood.<p>Jordan uses forced perspective and a love for getting wet to produce his somewhat unnerving images. By using a small Sony …

Windows and MirrorsInteraction Design, Digital Art, and the Myth of Transparency

In<i>Windows and Mirrors: Interaction Design, Digital Art, and the Myth of Transparency</i>, Jay David Bolter and Diane Gromala argue that, contrary to Donald Norman’s famous dictum, we do not always want our computers to be invisible “information appliances.” They say that a computer does not feel like a toaster or a vacuum cleaner; it feels like a medium that is now taking its place beside other media like printing, film, radio, and television. The computer as medium creates new forms and genres for …

What is liquid architecture? …

What is liquid architecture? A liquid architecture is an architecture whose form is contingent on the interests of the beholder; it is an architecture that opens to welcome you and closes to defend you; it is an architecture without doors and hallways, where the next room is always where it needs to be and what it needs to be. It is an architecture that dances or pulsates, becomes tranquil or agitated. Liquid architecture makes liquid cities, cities that change at the shift of a value, where …

A Different Take on Reality TV: 18 Hours of Swimming Salmon

Norwegians love their boring shows, from the progress of a ferry boat to a 30-hour interview.<p>A version of this article appeared June 17, 2013, on page A1 in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal, with the headline: A Different Take on Reality TV: 18 Hours of Swimming Salmon.<p>By Ellen Emmerentze Jervell (ellen.jervell@wsj.com)

Imaginary Water Sculpture by Peter Weibel 1971

Imaginary Water Sculpture by Peter Weibel 1971<p>“The action you see here is not the art-work itself, but the preparation for the art-work, the sketch. While in natural surroundings the movement of water has vanished in time, television technology allows it to be held fast in space. The volume that water has attained in the air, and which I trace here, results in an imaginary water sculpture that is visible and notable only on a TV screen. The TV set as space/time switch.”

Osmos by Charlotte Davis 1995

Osmos by Charlotte Davis 1995<p>“The medium of ‘immersive virtual space’, or virtual reality- as it is generally known- has intriguing potential as an arena for constructing metaphors about our existential being-in-the-world and for exploring consciousness as it is experienced subjectively, as it is felt.”

Bill Viola

Bill Viola<p>USA, b1951<br>“A pioneer in video as art, Viola has commented that, after years of working with the medium, he experiences time as a ‘palpable substance’. His video works and audiovisual installations explore fundamental aspects of the human experience. Often taking up themes from art history and religion, they have an exalted atmosphere, with images that, Viola has said, concern ‘birth, death, the unfolding of consciousness’.”

If we described liquid…

If we described liquid architecture as a symphony in space, this description should still fall short of the promise. A symphony, though it varies within its duration, is still a fixed object and can be repeated. At its fullest expression a liquid architecture is more than that. It is a symphony of space, but a symphony that never repeats and continues to develop. If architecture is an extension of our bodies, shelter and actor for the fragile self, a liquid architecture is that self in the act …
