Vivo ArteMov bringing CR to SESC in Curitiba

Ongoing collaboration between Brazilian artist Ricardo Palmieri and Croat Kruno Jošt will be presented in cultural centre SESC in Curitiba, Brazil.

CultureRobot is invited for participation in the Circuito Vivo 2012 between 07 to 12 May 2012 in Curitiba, Parana, Brazil. Typical micro-festival is occupying the spaces of the SESC Palace of Freedom (SESC Paço da Liberdade). Program ranges from a set of audiovisual shows, forum involving researchers and artists to workshops on mapping and geo-location and participative installation. The idea of the festival is to expand access to  discussions and critical use of technologies, such as mobile media, the microcinemas, the mediation technologies, network policies and art in public space.

Circuit Live is a project that has existed since the first edition of the festival (started in 2006). Created initially as a mechanism for dissemination of the activities, Circuit today has become a standalone event, a special edition that has a priority to establish prospective artists and researchers in the localities where it occurs. In 2012 Circuit Live is taking place in five Brazilian cities: Rio de Janeiro, Recife, Goiania, Curitiba and Sao Paulo.

Collaboration of Brazilian and Croatian artists on particpative isntallation CultureRobot has started in 2008 and since has been presented on HAIP festival in Ljubljana, SESC San Jose dos Campos, Brazil, Futuresonic Fringe, Manchester and Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

MIMOSA action

On sunny day of 24th of April MIMOSA installation was taken to the streets of Linz in search of everyday people that will use it as a free media and say whatever is on their minds without usual filters of commercial media. Our small group had lots of fun with trying to attract passers by to come and share their thoughts with us.

Many of them arrived and gave us their opinions on city of Liz, on independent culture, about ongoing Linz Culture Capital 09,  free radio work in Linz etc.

Some of the passers by were students that have been demonstrating that day in Linz due to schools reforms affecting them. Estimated 12 000 students gathered that day at Hauptplatz, main square of Linz.

Thanx to the whole MIMOSA crew, audio interwievs will be published soon.

CR 2.0 at SESC SJC

CR 2.0 had updates in software and hardware applications in both interactivity and in creation of robots. WII controller was hacked for position tracking of the robots. PD patches were updated to incorporate audio visual representations of the locations and new design in robots was introduced to create less chance for them to entangle into each other.

New map inhabitants were also robots made by young people attending robot making workshops. Both robots and maps were intriguing  younger and older audience.

Installation needed calibrating and it went trough couple of stages of production to fit place and its surrounding in best possible way.

Deconstructing in heart of Rio

During opening session of Dorkbot Rio a team of deconstructionalists have performed once again. This time a ‘Fusca’ (popular Beetle or Volkswagen) produced in 1968 was carved down on 24th May 2008, 40 years after it was produced and 40 years after counterculture and those revolutionary days which are so much evoked in the Brazilian media today, due to older rich people remembering them as the ‘days when they were driving Beetles with the flowers in their hair’.

Dorkbot Rio was hosted by Circo Voador, famous club in the heart of Rio da Janeiro. Production unit were: Bruno Tarin, Bruno Vianna, Giuliano Bonorandi and Kruno Jost. Thousands of thanx to many others that helped and worked with us making video or photographic documentation we can all enjoy now. Thanx again to all people that came for the event and joined in at the end in the manner that I have encountered only with people from Brasil.
