Debate Noam Chomsky & Michel Foucault – On human nature

postado em: Arquivo, Blog, Referências, Videos | 0

Extraordinary and historic debate on human nature in English plus sub-titles in English for parts in French and Dutch..

Dutch philosopher Fons Elders invited two of the world’s leading thinkers — the American linguist and activist Noam Chomsky and the French social theorist Michel Foucault — to debate a thorny and perennial question: is there such a thing as an “innate” human nature, and if so, what are its implications for our ideas about power, justice, revolution, and the shape of the ideal human society?

Sam Droege is the head of the USGS Native Bee Inventory and Monitoring Program in Maryland, an organization that monitors the health and habitat of bees in the U.S. as well as creating archival reference catalogs that aid researchers in the identification of bee species in North America. The project is no small task as there are literally thousands of bee species in the U.S., some of which vary in only the most minute ways that may not even be distinguishable to the naked eye.

Like a pixelated holodeckSubmergence is an immersive array of 8,064 suspended LEDs built by an international group of artists and designers known as Squidsoup. This particular installation is currently on display at Gallery ROM for Art and Architecture in Oslo, Norway and is comprised of a light field with motion sensors that responds to your actions and illuminates as you move through it. The piece was created by Anthony Rowe, Gaz Bushell, Chris Bennewith, Liam Birtles and Ollie Bown and you can see many more photos here. Submergence is on view through February 13, 2013.

Dutch Design Week 2013: Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees ( + slideshow).

The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.

“Trained bees only rush into the smaller chamber if they can detect the odour on the patient’s breath that they have been trained to target,” explained Soares, who presented her Bee’s project at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven last month.

Scientists have found that honey bees – Apis mellifera – have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

Bees have also been trained to detect explosives and a company calledInsectinel is training “sniffer bees” to work in counter-terrorist operations.

What if making an Arduino, or wiring up an Arduino was as easy as printing one out? In this tutorial we printed our own Arduino Pro Mini board using a pen plotter and the Electroninks Circuit Scribe (a rollerball pen with highly conductive ink). Within 15 minutes we printed the board, placed components down with glue or tape, and uploaded a sketch.

Materials needed:
Circuit Scribe conductive ink pen
Silhouette SD plotter
8.5×11″ glossy photo paper
Electroninks Arduino connection kit
FTDI cable
USBtinyISP bootloader or a pre-bootloaded Arduino chip
Superglue (Loctite gel) or Z-tape

EAGLE PCB (if you want to modify the board)
Arduino IDE
Silhouette Studio

Amor Muñoz, textiles en la electrónica

postado em: Arquivo, Blog, Referências | 0


Las posibilidades de creación son infinitas, comienzan con el amor. Así lo sabe Amor Muñoz (Ciudad de México, 1979), quien va de los dibujos a los textiles para encender el lenguaje de la electrónica y convertirlo en una manifestación artística.

Los caminos del arte son desconocidos, a veces inescrutables, así le ocurrió a esta joven artista quien abandonó la abogacía por sus, hasta entonces, pasatiempos: la pintura y el dibujo. Su interés por el arte contemporáneo se intensificó hasta que decidió abandonar las leyes para convertirse en artista; de la carrera de Derecho aprendió las habilidades de gestión e investigación, las que más tarde le ayudarían a legitimar su producción artística y fundamentar su obra para el escrutinio público.

What is Botanicus Interacticus?

We envision a future where interactive devices are not manufactured but are living, growing organisms. Botanicus Interacticus is an exploration into the design of highly expressive interactive plants, both living and artificial. It has a number of unique properties. The instrumentation of living plants is simple, non-invasive, and does not damage the plants. Using our Touché technology, only a single wire has to be placed anywhere in the plant’s soil.

Botanicus Interacticus allows for rich and expressive interaction with plants. Depending on the physiology of each plant species, Botanicus Interacticus can allow a broad variety of gestures such as sliding fingers on the plant stem, detecting touch and grasp location, tracking proximity between the user and plant, and estimating the amount of touch contact.

With Botanicus Interacticus technology any living plant can be turned into a musical instrument, a game controller, a light switch, an elevator button, or a motion detector. Interactivity and responsiveness can be added to homes, streets, and even entire cities, unobtrusively and sustainably simply by growing plants.
