Aan Tafel! 🍴

[Dutch only, sorry!]

Aan Tafel! is een multimediale theatrale belevenis waar eten en herinneringen centraal staan. “Hoe smaakt jouw thuis?” Theatermaker Annemarie de Bruijn trok met die vraag Amsterdam in en trof een rijke keuken. Samen met filmmaker Jasper Masthoff en decorontwerper Reier Pos maakte zij een multimediaal diner over eten en de grappige, mooie, ontroerende of belangrijke herinneringen die daaraan vastzitten. Aan Tafel! is een theatrale belevenis met kleine hapjes. Het is geen volledig diner.

🎱🖤🖥 Algorithmic Anxiety | Design & Research Bootcamp | NXS

[exploring? designing? making?] Through exploring three levels of algorithmic power over humans – assist, control and replace – this bootcamp will map out the relation between algorithmic authorities and human anxiety.   The bootcamp’s collective “research through making” approach mixes theoretical input, visual and textual assignments with performative elements. Lectures by Dr. Nishant Shah and other special guests (TBA) will introduce the participants to the concept of artificial authorities and how they relate to the “self’ within the context of this workshop. Selected parts of the bootcamp results will be included in the upcoming printed issue NXS #4 Algorithmic Anxiety, to be released in February 2019.

Please note: this bootcamp is meant for participants only and won’t be open to the public.

Rhizomatiks is the fertile soil, a meeting ground where specialists connect to tackle challenges and plant the seeds for a verdant future of novel experiences and innovative modes of expression. In this artist talk, Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi of Rhizomatiks Research will discuss the ‘phosphere’ performance they are premiering at TodaysArt.

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

TodaysArt Festival | Isabel Mager | The Design of Human Management

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.

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.

TodaysArt Festival | Yoshinari Nishiki | Overture: Carrying Power

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

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.

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.

WYSIWYG #10 🗺 1+1=3

[eyes open at all times]

WYSIWYG is turning ten editions strong and somehow they managed not to screen a single (former) Soviet Union film so far during one of their events. As a cinematic language, Soviet cinema is just as important as its Hollywood counterpart and shaped alternative ways in watching and understanding the moving image. Therefore they’ll screen Mikhail Kalatozov 1960’s adventure ‘Letter Never Sent‘ and will tell you more about the various cinematographic methods Russian directors used throughout the years.
