To kick start an upcoming disturbance, Roger Malina and Oskar Olsson sit down with the host himself. Alen Agaronov is a doctoral student at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health majoring in Social & Behavioral Science with a secondary field in Critical Media Practice. In this episode Alen explains how he has grown an unhealthy obsession with the health benefits of the so-called Mediterranean Diet – particularly the scientists who were behind its discovery. Like a glass of wine, our discuss pours into tangential topics including Alen’s experience with the bureaucracies and office politics of doctoral life, Roger’s points about art and science, and the co-host's odd development of non-human-targeted media.

He is interested in the ways architecture intersects on a smaller scale with individual human lives and on a larger scale with the environment. His work combines detailed architectural historical analysis with biographical research and, when appropriate, philosophical, sociological and psychological (theories of spatial perception) thought contemporary to a research project’s focus.Prof. Welter has received grants and fellowships from the Getty Grant Program, the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and the Centre Canadien d'Architecture, Montreal. Following on from Biopolis: Patrick Geddes and the City of Life (Cambridge, MA, 2002), he continues publishing on the Scotsman’s theories of the city. His book Ernst L.

Farshid Kazemi and Siying Duan discuss their mutual interest in shadow-theatre and the magic lantern as early precursors to the art of the cinema. The conversation begins with how the use of shadow-puppetry in Plato's allegory of the Cave and the Persian philosopher and poet Omar Khayyam's reference to the magic lantern in the 11th century functioned as a technology to think about the ontological structure of the world. The origins of cinema is discussed in light of the shadow-play in India, China and Iran and in light of magic, shamanism, and the evocation of the spirit of the dead. Fascinating aspects of the phenomenon of shadows are discussed in Chinese and Persian and Shi'i-Islamic thought. The story of the origin of Chinese shadow-play is mentioned and finally; how the cinema was received in light of indigenous traditions of the shadow-play and the magic lantern within Chinese and Iranian culture at the turn of the last century.

Jorge Antunes formou-se em violino, composição e regência. Em 1961 se destacou como precursor da música eletrônica no Brasil. Realizou estudos pós-graduados na Argentina, na Holanda e na França. Foi Professor Titular na Universidade de Brasília de 1973 até 2011 quando se aposentou. Obteve vários prêmios nacionais e internacionais. É membro da Academia Brasileira de Música. Suas obras são publicadas por Salabert, Breitpkof&Hartell, Gerig, Ricordi, Sistrum, Billaudot e Suvini Zerboni.

Escritor

Sua produção literária é vasta, embora pouco conhecida. A divulgação de seus poemas, crônicas e outros escritos tem se restringido à inclusão em algumas coletâneas, livros coletivos e jornais e revistas. Em 1998 a editora Hemisfério Sul, de Blumenau, publicou seu livro de literatura juvenil A Morte do Arco-Íris. Em 2001 ganhou o primeiro lugar no concurso de contos da Revista Poiésis. Em 2006 recebeu menção honrosa no Concurso de Contos Yage, em Salzburg, na Áustria.

Artista Plástico

Participou dos Salões Nacionais de Belas Artes, do Salão de Abril no MAM e dos Salões Nacionais de Arte Moderna. Partindo do princípio de que “o grau de recepção de uma mensagem artística é proporcional ao número de sentidos usados na recepção”, criou obras as quais denominou “arte integral”, pelo apelo direto aos cinco sentidos, inclusive o paladar. Emprega assim os diferentes recursos audiovisuais e cinéticos, além de odores, elementos gustativos e possibilidades táteis.

Feng, Qianhui is an architect, interactive designer and multi-media artist. She is focusing on Interactive architecture and multi-Media art, as well as immersive theatre and interactive performance. She has earned two master degrees, first one is in the major of Architectural Design and theory from Harbin Institute of Technology, and second one is in Design for Performance and Interaction from the Bartlett School of University College London.
In this episode, Feng first introduced one of her architecture project, the museum of the Chinese writer Cao, Xueqin, who is the author of Dream of the Red Chamber, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. The architectural project features a spatial embodiment and visualization of Cao’s literary world. The counterpart concept of space in Chinese language is kong jian 空间. Although kong 空 is translated as empty in English, but from a Daoist perspective, it actually means unlimited potentially. Thus, the space is not understood as a physical one with a determinate length and width, but rather a place of people’s life, memory, feeling, and open possibility. The conversation also covers the ideas of cang 藏 (hide), kuang 框 (frame) from traditional garden creation.
After a few years of work as an architect, Feng then enrolled in IAlab in University College London to develop her knowledge in Performance and Interaction designing. Feng tried to combine her long-term interest in traditional Chinese aesthetics and contemporary media art creation. She created a new form of theatre named Inner Awareness using the design of a spatial interactive installation that will assess the relationship between performance, space and audience, thereby providing the audience with a thoroughly immersive experience. It is based on a romantic classic Chinese Kunqu Opera THE PEONY PAVILION written by dramatist Tang, Xianzu in Ming dynasty 400 years ago. THE PEONY PAVILION tells a love story through the medium of dream beyond space and time, even beyond life and death. Nonetheless, the employment of digital technology can result in a new and better theatrical interpretation; the coming together and fusion of classical drama and contemporary digital art has the potential to give the opera a new lease of life. Feng used real-time body tracking, augmented reality and projection mapping to interact with the actor’s performance to transform the theatre space into a dream world. In such a space that is artistic and dreamlike, the audiences can transcend space and time, actual and virtual, become one with Du, experience her brave and persistent pursuit of her love and then raise their own inner awareness.
Furthermore, the installation can also be seen in a wider context and not only in the parameters of this one particular art form.
Thank you for listening! Please don’t hesitate to contact me via duansiying@gmail.com if you would like to learn more about the details of the conversation or have any suggestion.

Paulo Bruscky’s work reflects a simultaneous engagement with both the Brazilian artist’s local framework of Recife and a global network, which he documents in artist’s books, performative projects, and photographs. Associated with Fluxus, and a key participant in the international mail-art movement, he investigates meaning through action, collage, installation, film, and poetry. Produced during his first trip to New York as part of a Guggenheim Fellowship and in collaboration with Daniel Santiago, Air Art Proposal of Composition of Colored Clouds in the Sky of New York(1982) is one of a series of classified ads published in Brazilian and other newspapers that advocate absurd or impossible situations.

Phill Niblock (b. 1933, USA) is an artist whose fifty-year career spans minimalist and experimental music, film and photography. Since 1985, he has served as director of Experimental Intermedia, a foundation for avant-garde music based in New York with a branch in Ghent, and curator of the foundation’s record label XI. Known for his thick, loud drones of music, Niblock’s signature sound is filled with microtones of instrumental timbres that generate many other tones in the performance space. In 2013, his diverse artistic career was the subject of a retrospective realised in partnership between Circuit (Contemporary Art Centre Lausanne) and Musée de l’Elysée. The following year Niblock was honoured with the prestigious Foundation for Contemporary Arts John Cage Award. 

LASER Nomad is born  during the scientific delirium madness residency in July 2015 at Djerassi Foundation, San Francisco, with members of Leonardo Journal, LASER and Luca Forcucci. The idea resides in the development of discussions, seminars, festivals, conferences and interviews between artists and scientists in various geographical nodes, in order to establish on the long-term a global interconnected dynamic lab to share and decolonise knowledge. We will engage with communities and break barriers between academic, independent art space and institutions.

Since 2006, Forcucci conducts research and collaborate with scientists in the fields of neuroscience, perception, biology and music technology. In addition his own research includes and observes the possibility to live within a constraint of 23 kg luggage, a hand luggage and a laptop folder. A proper research lab is difficult to transport. Therefore the idea of a nomad collaborative research facility for art, science and technology​ emerged.

Exploration, play, and mastery of digital computer equipment has been a growing trend in public education for quite some time. Because schools have increased an emphasis for STEM practices across the nation schools must transcend linear classroom structures. The Digital Arts and Technology Academy is an effort to challenge that and to provide a new curriculum model in Grand Prairie Independent School District with an emphasis on starting at the middle school level. Curriculum strategy and development is something that all schools seek to be better at and with standardized test score accountability systems in place, teachers are always looking at new ways to increase student interaction as well as problem solving and critical thinking skills. The Digital Arts and Technology Academy is an effort to transform a traditional middle school structure within a three-year program design and use an approach to bridge post-secondary educational goals with public school systems through technology and a non-traditional classroom engagement philosophy. This will be a brief demonstration of strategies that can be implemented for school improvement, increasing interactivity, and why for us the transformation of a traditional school system can work in public education.
