TodaysArt Festival | Yoshinari Nishiki | Overture: Carrying Power

[22 Sep]



The Grey Space collaborates with TodaysArt to organise a public space intervention by The Grey Space resident Yoshinari Nishiki.

Its been roughly five years since so-called “new delivery” services emerged on the street, starting the British firm Deliveroo. Although their services are now deeply embedded in our culture, still nobody has approached them as a serious logistical system. Would it be possible to transport something rougher and heavier with these services, such as raw materials? And can we reimagine them to be a modular zero-emission transportation vehicle?

Many Deliveroo drivers will take part in this experiment and intervention by Japanese artist Yoshinari Nishiki (aka Inari Wishiki), who is currently doing a residency at The Grey Space. This is in the context of a bigger project, in which he is developing a novel concept for autonomous and zero-emission deep sea shipping. As part of the intervention, the drivers will attempt to move a mountain of 500kg of potatoes together. The distribution and assembly process will be accompanied by a sound piece by electronic composer Kepla (aka Jon Davies).

Yoshinari Nishiki is an artist based in Rotterdam. His work explores the entanglement of economics and ecology. Nishiki is currently doing a residency at The Grey Space in the Middle. The residency is supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL and the Central Innovation District The Hague.

TodaysArt Festival | Panel | Interactive Media Art and Open Source Technologies

[22 Sep]



In collaboration with platform Digilogue Istanbul and RNDR studio, this panel brings together media artists working with live coding, performance, and open source tools, to present and speak about their interactive work.
If we understand interactivity as a type of gesture, then what role do open source tools and platforms play in the creation of interactive work? This panel will open up discussions on the potential liberation and limitation inherent in using open source tools. What are the mental, bodily, and societal gestures that emerge in these interactions?

The panel is presented in the RNDR space, on the 1st floor of the building.

Participants:
Ersin Han Ersin (Marshmallow Laser Feast) | Carolien Teunisse (artist) | Kyle McDonald (artist) | Push 1 stop (artist) | Edwin Jakobs (RNDR) | Lalin Akalan (artist, curator)

TodaysArt Festival | Isabel Mager | The Design of Human Management

[22 Sep]



Why should it matter how the most visible devices are made? How is an interviewing software constructed, that claims to cut out the human bias common to face-to-face job interviews? In this talk, social designer Isabel Mager will take the visitors through her work in the TodaysArt exhibition, delving into her own artistic practice and research. Both of her research projects, ‘input = output’ and ‘5000times’, engage with the back-end and hidden structures of technology.

The talk is presented on the ground floor/ RNDR space, on the 1st floor of the building.

TodaysArt Festival | Modular Synthesizer Ensemble – Workshop | Gammon

[22 Sep]



The Modular Synthesizer Ensemble puts its focus on a collective musical experience. Led by Gammon, this hands-on participatory workshop teaches basic knowledge about electronic sound production and composition. The workshop enables an intuitive approach to the analogue Modular Synthesizer and makes electronic music tangible and comprehensible. Because of its unique musical and social acoustic experience, the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble enables a similar challenge to experienced musicians, modular enthusiasts or people with no previous knowledge.

Please note: the workshop takes place in the basement. Space is limited, to reserve your spot please register by sending an email to workshop@todaysart.nl.

TodaysArt Festival | Light Leaks | Kyle McDonald + Jonas Jongejan

[21 Sep - 23 Sep]



One dark room, three projectors, fifty disco balls and a healthy dose of well-planned lighting sequences are what teleports the audience to a magical world in ‘Light Leaks’, a work by Kyle McDonald and Jonas Jongejan. For this work, the designers have used hundreds of structured light scans to capture the position of each projected pixel, and then modeled their reflection in the mirror balls using SketchUp.

Light Leaks is presented in the RNDR space, on the 1st floor of the building.

TodaysArt Festival | Panel | Inventing the Future of Shipping: Fully Autonomous Modular Container Transport

[21 Sep]



The Grey Space collaborates with TodaysArt to present a panel discussion focused on the The Grey Space resident Yoshinari Nishiki.
In the wake of environmental crises, nothing is certain anymore, except for the development of mobile technology and cheap sensors. Physical Internet (PI) is a strange technical term describing a novel logistics system, streamlining the flow of materials by imitating the way data is seamlessly transferred over the Internet. Although PI is a scientific concept, it is based purely on an abstract image, allowing a gap for artistic intervention. Single Container Transport is a future logistics concept by artist Yoshinari Nishiki that dissects a highly representative underlying infrastructure of modern civilisation, container shipping, which effectively moves 90% of all the manufactured goods across the globe. Single Container Transport is the idea of moving standard shipping containers one by one, instead of stacking them high up to more than 20.000 TEU (20ft containers) per vessel. These autonomous deep sea vessels are independent of traditional fuels, and only harnessing the wind and ocean currents, however fully utilising ever more accurate geolocation technology and cheap sensors.

Participants:
 Lóránt TavasszyAli HaseltalabBorre Rosema | Yoshinari Nishiki | Inte Gloerich | Marijke Cobbenhagen (The Grey Space in the Middle)
The panel is presented in Bleyenberg.

DataCommons is the association of citizens that wants to recapture the right to self-determination over their own data. During this lab they will build an actual common for a civil data set: the way we use our bikes in cities. They will be experimenting with data from sources like the City of The Hague and Deliveroo. This lab is a collaboration between DataCommons and Waag Society, with introductions by Socrates Schouten and Bas Leerintveld.

🖥🙌 Border Sessions | Drones Need People Too Lab 🖥🙌

[15 Jun]



We imagine a world with an extra layer of continuous gently buzzing air flight. A fine maze of seamless robotic delivery services. Delivery within reach of our homes and offices. But we still have a couple of blind spots in this vision. Especially on the consumer side. What does the interface of drone – human interaction look like when you’re not the operator, but a hungry student with an appetite for a vegetarian pizza? This lab is part of research by The Future Mobility Network and Wunderpeople to prototype the inner city delivery service by drones, with a specific focus on the handover to the so-called end user. Join us if you’re looking for the latest insights into drone delivery and are looking forward to a very practical day of ideation and prototyping.
