Coming in October:

There’s not much info on the webpage due to a hack, but it will feature the first Nordic Electroboutique which you can check out  here.

While going through my inbox (long story!! weird behavior!! strange fusions going on!!) I found this link to a project that might be interesting for Kristian and Anja and anybody else interested in robotic creatures for that matter.

Arduino

(especially for Kristian)
This is something you might look into for animating the inanimate!
Arduino is …..

….. an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).

The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the software can be downloaded for free. The hardware reference designs (CAD files) are available under an open-source license, you are free to adapt them to your needs.

Check out Charlie White

(Particularly for Anja, and Kristian)

Charlie White is a Los Angeles photographer, or rather he constructs hyperreal photographs.

“Using a combination of fiction, artifice, and make-believe to represent the human condition, many of White’s photographs explore America’s social fictions and the tensions in identity and perception they generate. White shares a relationship with the directorial forms of photography practised by such artists as Gregory Crewdson and Jeff Wall. Applying cinematic techniques, his set-up photographs are directed and staged narrative stills. This narrative focus can be perceived in his previous photographic series like In a Matter of Days (1999) or Understanding Joshua (2001) which employ a pictorial play between reality and fiction, occasionally taken to grotesque extremes. Understanding Joshua is a series of photos of a puppet meant to represent “complete fragility manifest in a body,” placed in various situations related to human relationships.”
