Arthur C. Clarke once wrote that new ideas pass through three periods:
* "It can't be done."
* "It probably can be done, but it's not worth doing."
* "I knew it was a good idea all along!"

A short french film about memory, time, and perception.
"Nothing tells memories from ordinary moments, only afterwards do they claim rememberance on account of their scars."
The Clapper is an old high-tech device. It is just one demonstration of human's infinite desire to control. This may sound exagerrating but I think it is valid.
"let you turn things on and off from anywhere in the room, just plug in the clapper and use television, lamp, stereo, almost anything you want to turn on and...

2002 M.I.T. FLUID MOTION EXPERIMENT
A fluorocarbon-based ferrofluid, with about 400-G saturation magnetization and low field magnetic susceptibility of 3, is placed within a glass Hele-Shaw cell of 1.1-mm gap. Magnetic fields are applied that have in-plane clockwise rotating and dc axial magnetic fields.
This work is conceptualized as an "organic tower." The magnetic fluid, with a smooth black surface that seems to draw you in, reaches the top of the tower, spreading like a fractal, defying gravity. The form and texture of the physical surface of the tower constantly alter between the hard iron...
So, for the past few hours I've been researching metaphysics, quantum physics, secret societies, mind control, teleportation, and Nikola Tesla. My objective is to find the relation to memory and to make a respective project.
The first film is a montage put together by a student with many clips from Waking Life and What the Bleep Do We...
Roy Ascott is a visiting professor for Design|Media Arts at UCLA, a pioneer of telematic art, and a seminal theorist in the field of new media.

The convergence of silicon-dry computational systems and wet biological processes provides new media for all creative fields. The human mind and telematic...
I was just thinking of places and our feelings and memories that are conjured up when we go to those places. In a airplane I feel a little anxious in the beginning, but then above the cities and clouds I get very reflective. Reflecting on the life that exists below on the surface. Actually I think anytime you are overlooking a city you get a...
I am agnostic more than atheistic, but I agree with this video that there might be some confusion existing in religion. I get confused when I talk with my mum over the long distance phone call... how about something passed down hundreds of generations.
I CREATED MY POD PROJECT ASSUMING THAT WE WOULD NOT HAVE CREATED GRAVITY IN SPACE. I'M WARMING UP TO THE IDEA OF FLOATING AROUND BUT I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HAVE THE OPTION OF BEING HELD IN PLACE INSIDE A PERSONAL POD. THE ENVIRONMENT/ ROOMS WILL BE SCREEN BASED AND INTERACTIVE, TACTILE MULTI TOUCH INGTERFACES. PEOPLE CAN MANIPULATE THEIR...
the space collective is quite large, it is on the level of a space Manhattan/city or a reasonable size that requires a wayfinding system.
physical visual clutter is a problem. for the most part this wayfinding system would not rely on physical signs. instead the system is ephemeral. this can be done in several ways:...
