Through CINETic’s implication in TECHNOMAGIQUE, a group of artists working on digital art, active in the fields of VR, AR and digital interactive installations, will present their works and give a series of workshops at CINETic, in the interval 19-23 June 2019.

Participants will be able to attend the workshops, alongside the UNATC students enrolled in the INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES FOR PERFORMING AND MEDIA ARTS and NEW MEDIA DESIGN Master’s programs.

The event organized at CINETic is developed in partnership with Liminal and the Mirage Festival from Lyon where UNATC students enrolled in the ITPMA Master’s program showcased installations in April 2019.

EXOVISIONS

AR installation by Justine Emard

20-22 June 2019 | 11:00-21:00 | CINETic Lobby

22 June 2019 | Meet the Artist Session @ CINETic

Justine Emard is a French artist, exploring the new entanglements our lives have with technology. Combining different mediums – from photography, to video and virtual reality – she places her work at the intersection of robotics, inanimate objects, organic life and artificial intelligence. Her installations are based on Deep-Learning experiences and the dialogue ensuing between humans and machines. As of 2016, she has been collaborating with various scientific laboratories in Japan. Her Reborn and Co(AI)xistence films and installations, she has worked with actor and dancer Mirai Moriyama, as well as with Alter, a humanoid robot developed by professors Takashi Ikegami and Hiroshi Ishiguro.

EXOVISIONS is an art installation developed in 2017, in Japan, comprising of minerals, petrified wood and clay enclosed in rock, paired with an augmented reality app called Exovision (free app available on iOS and Android devices). For this installation, Emard collaborated with Japanese composer Marihiko Hara to transform these natural objects into a space for projection and imagination.

Co-production: «des horizons et le départ»; curator: Stéphanie Vidal, la Maison populaire (Montreuil) 2018 and «Mitate & imagination», curator: Tetsuya Ozaki + Nuit Blanche Kyoto 2017 «Paysage en mouvement».

HUMAN STORIES

Digital art installation and Workshop by Martial Geoffre-Rouland

19-23 June 2019 | 11:00-21:00 | CINETic Lobby

19-21 June 2019 | Human Stories Workshop @ CINETic

Martial Geoffre-Rouland is a graduate of the ELISAVA Barcelona Superior School of Design & Engineering and his works are focused on digital art and interactive installations. His projects are the result of various collaborations with artists, independent studios and international known companies, into the field of web, digital art or scenography.

HUMAN STORIES is a digital art installation exploiting more than 30,000 video streams in real time, with the aid of a bot that is constantly looking for human presence, using artificial intelligence. Trying to tell us a story through the eyes of the computer, this installation makes us think about our own privacy in our ultra-connected society.

A matrix of 12 screens is displayed on a wall, showing live streams from unprotected cameras. All these streams are analysed in real time using machine learning – trying to detect whether there is human activity. As soon as humans are detected into a stream, they are displayed onto one of the screens, letting the visitor step into a curious voyeur position. The computer is trying to describe the scenes simultaneously – what is happening, where? Is it crowded? At what time?

Within the HUMAN STORIES WORKSHOP that will be conducted at CINETic, Martial Geoffre-Rouland will show the participants how to work on developing an art installation based on coding AI systems that would recognize human presence, such as the Human Stories art installation.

People and objects can be tracked without limitation of number of people or area size. The tracking data are provided by the 3D camera network through open protocols (osc, posistagenet) compatible with most creative softwares. The technology has been designed for events or permanent installations in mind.
