Talks: Media Interaction & Mixed Realities

Source: Singapore Art Museum

Media Interaction & Mixed Realities is a series of talks held in-conjunction with the exhibition Interrupt on Sat 16 Aug 2003 from 4.30pm - 6.30pm at Singapore Art Museum's Glass Hall. Admission is free. To register, call (65) 6332 3220.

What are the dynamics and possibilities of a multi dimensional infospace? What happens when virtual spaces overlap with real spaces? This series of four  short presentations focuses on the next stage where the imaginations of artists, researchers and audience are superimposed within a palette of networked transmissions, augmented manipulation and virtual interactions.

Programme:

Relational Spaces: A Central Axis
by Clara Boj & Diego Diaz (Laboratorio de Luz, Spain)

Traditionally physical spaces such as parks, gardens and other common spaces where interactions take place are being transformed. These spaces with their concrete spatial boundaries have been migrated to virtual ones, where interactions take on new dimensions. A Central Axis attempts to engage in the issues of real and virtual spaces through the interactive experience.

From Immersion to Interaction in Virtual Reality Art
by Dr Irina Aristarkhova (National University of Singapore, Information and Communication Management Programme & University Scholars Programme)

Based on the thesis that interaction is the best means to create a greater sense of immersion in VR art, this talk will concentrate on how the notion of immersion in VR environments has been expanded through the strategic use of interaction. The presentation will highlight the use of haptic interfaces  and include examples of the most recent collaborations between scientists and artists creating interactive art.

Mixed Reality: A New Interactive Media
by Adrian Cheok (National University of Singapore, Mixed Reality Lab)

Through the technology of mixed reality, the digital world can to be extended into the physical world, developing an almost magical environment where the virtual (involving 3D computer graphics and animations) is merged with the physical world. This mixed reality constitutes a new interactive media  which will enable humans to interact with one another in ways that can only be imagined now, and to interact with computers extending far beyond current applications.

Automatic Asian Art Creation from Photos using Fuzzy Logic Computing
by Lee Shang Ping, Farzam Farbiz & Adrian Cheok (National University of Singapore, Mixed Reality Lab)

This non-technical and visually exciting session will present an innovative system that allows automatic  generation of Asian ink paintings from photographs. With a novel use of fuzzy logic linguistic rules, the computer can apply processes to the age old practice of Asian ink painting and to emulate the  experiential  understanding of artists. Can computers acquire the artistic elements required for producing Asian painting of standard? Find out.

The talks will be followed by a viewing of the exhibition and light reception.
