The Birth of Robot Graffiti
Febuary 26, 2029. Hayward Chronicle takes the reader back 20 years to get to the roots of the robots being used to do graffiti. Although they may not have been intended for illegal street art, harsher graffiti laws have turned the poroposal, of using the abilities of such robots (to take the risk), into a realistic necessity for the survival sake of today's graffiti artists.

Who Shot Ya!
This piece is titled “Who Shot Ya!” and is based on the performance piece by Chris Burden titled “Shoot” from 1971. My goal was to be shot in a public area to catch the reaction of the people in the inner city as apposed to the more touristy areas of San Francisco. My first objective was to invent a new lightweight bulletproof suit to protect me from any fatal injuries. Second was to interview military and other experts in the field of armor and defense. Lastly would be to go through with the performance of “Who Shot Ya!”.

DEVICE ART
Essay covering artworks done by contemporary Japanese Artists. Device Art is rooted in the analysis of the key role that devices play in certain types of art, that is, artworks involving hardware (a device) specifically designed to realize the artistic concept. The device itself can become the content. Technology is not hidden, its function is visible and easy to understand, while it still brings about a sense of wonder. Well designed interfaces made of the right materials facilitate interaction for users, often in a playful manner.

From Appearance to Apparition
Questions of consciousness and the construction of reality are at the centre of any discussion of the status, role and potential of art in the emerging cyberculture. The fundamental question is this: Can an art which is concerned, as western art has always been, with appearance, with the look of things, with surface reality, have any relevance in our systems-based culture in which apparition, emergence, transformation are seminal? Can Representation co-exist with Constructivism? Art in the cybersphere is emerging out of the fusion of communications and computers, virtual space and real space, nature and artificial life, which constitutes a new universe of space and time. This new network environment is extending our sensorium and providing new metaphysical dimensions to human consciousness and culture.

Listen to MP3s with the electronic field on you body!
This article discusses how huge strides have been taken, by various companies, to use the human body's natural electronic field to send and recieve various forms of data. Soon, it may be possible to listen to an MP3 player without the wires connecting your headphones. Signals would travel over the body to the earphones. Phone numbers, emails or business cards could be exchanged through kissing, shaking of the hands or any form of physical contact.

The Importance of Imagination and the Idiocy of Certain NY Times Writers
According to Wired Science, Scientists "are now poised to alter the understanding of human nature in ways artists and writers have not," wrote Benedict Carey earlier this week in a New York Times feature on the quest for memory-erasing drugs. This is what educated people might call a fucking ridiculous statement. Although scientists have made extraordinary strides on how memories are stored and activated, and developed techniques that could someday be used to alter them, artists and writers like Stanislaw Lem and Bruce Sterling anticipated and in some ways outpaced their work, using fiction to explore how memory alteration might change our lives."I think artists and writers are much more aware of the problems of memory than most people are," said Anders Sandberg, an Oxford University neuroethicist.

What if Bionics Were Better?
The desire for radical body transformation remains very much on the fringe, and represents behavior that many if not most people would consider taboo. But the distance between denial and acceptance could turn as much on what current machines can and can't do, as it does body image.In science fiction, advanced bionics that not only replace but surpass human potential are often treated as a given. Although today's technologies come nowhere close to that ideal, it's increasingly tantalizing to ponder what-if scenarios.

Wired for War, by pw singer
Recently the U.S, along with 43 other countries have been developing robots that can go into combat. How does this change the culture of war? This essay explores and brings up very good questions. Currenty the U.S.A is in the lead for robot tech and design, but it won't always be that way. Already some of the lost U.S robots have turned up on the marketplace and have been used against us. Will using robots level the playing ground between rich and poor countries in war? Robots don't need to be destroyed but only hacked to change to target enemy. Also, the essay references an episode of Star Trek where a tactic was used to replace war. 2 robots fought and based on how much of a victor on was, a diff. comp used an algorithm to decide how many people from each side should die. What role would humans play? and with robots there would be less of an emotional effect. it is much easier to shoot a robot that an actual person. the culture of war has potential to change far more in just a few decades than it has in thousands of years.

Laser Tag invented by Evan Roth & James Powderly of G.R.L.
New form of the graffiti style of tagging. It is done by a very strong (dangerous to the eye) handheld laser pointer. Combined with a projector and cameras it allows the "tagger" to write what they wish on the wall without defacing the property. Looks like fun but costs about $6K - $10K

The Dream Director (2007)
"Dream Director" was an installation made in 2007 by Luke Jerram with aid from sleep psychologist Chris Alford. His intention was to create an installation that merged art, science and digital media. It was funded by the Clark Bursary award from UK Digital Arts and was made in Bristol, England. In the project, a space was created in a gallery for volunteers to sleep in and viewers to walk through during the day. People wore masks while they slept that monitored their eye movement; when they met dream state, or rapid eye movement (REM), sound samples were triggered via a computer program in order to affect their dreams. In the morning, participants wrote down their dreams and received a print out of the sounds that were played overnight. Results were later analyzed by sleep psychologists. I like this piece because it explores our unconscious/ subconscious self. It is intriguing to regard this sleep/dream space as an art space as well.

stretchy like taffy, but tastes and melts like ice cream... In Turkey they have done this by adding orchid root salep and tree pine mastic to the ice cream ingredients and came out with this. This experiment with texture is very interesting, what other foods will we be able to completely change the texture/consistency of?

"Aussie Artist Has Ear Grafted Onto Arm"
Australian performance artist Stelarc (AKA Stelios Arcadiou) has had an ear surgically grafted onto his arm. He plans on having a bluetooth microphone implanted to remotely enhance the hearing experience for himself and others in different locations. I find what he is doing to enhance his body, or perhaps even exploit it, fascinating in its controversy and innovation.

Everything is Contestable
In 1909 the Armenian Church of St Gregory the Illuminator was the first building in Singapore to acquire electric lights and fans. This fact no doubt had its resonances with the interior, faith-based work of the church, but also mingles with a broader, external context of 'electrification', and the state's presentation of such buildings as monuments, as state heritage, and so on. This project, as part of the Biennale, is a 'partial' celebration of this history, filled with doubts about the contemporary context of such power.

Atrist Bradley Pitt floats naked with his eyes closed and ear plugs in for a unusual wieghtless flight. " Blind, deaf , and nude is definitely the way to experience parabolic flight", Pitt says. His 11 chanel installation will have three camera views from the glass cupola below the cockpit. These three perspectives are acompanied by adio recordings from the fight director and piolets. The only consistently peaceful object is Pitt's floating body. He describes the experience as freedom and imprisonment.

Richard Wilson's "Turning the Place Over"
Turning the Place Over was built for the Liverpool Biennial 2007. It consists of an 8 metres diameter ovoid cut from the façade of a building in Liverpool city centre and made to oscillate in three dimensions. The revolving façade rests on a specially designed giant rotator, usually used in the shipping and nuclear industries, and acts as a huge opening and closing ‘window’, offering recurrent glimpses of the interior during its constant cycle.

Sachiko Kodama: Magnetic field art
Japanese artist interested in organic shape-changing art forms and figures whose three-dimensional form, surface structure, and color change dynamically and lively as if to reflect echoes of environmental music, light, and human communication. Basically, he uses ferrofluids which appear as a black fluid. They are prepared by dissolving nanoscale ferromagnetic particles in a solvent such as water or oil and remain strongly magnetic even in a fluid condition. Therefore, they are more flexibly transformable as compared to iron sand. It is well known that ferrofluids form spikes along magnetic field lines when the magnetic surface force exceeds the stabilizing effects of the fluid weight and surface tension. His first project was "Protrude, Flow" (2001) followed by "Morpho Tower" (2006) and "Morpho Tower / Two Standing Spirals" (2007).
