Pwned News \\ Davidope + Eye, Robot

some last vicious dope  shots from Davidope. – according to his personal site so.

some..

compilation of student work from Eye,Robot  at SCI-Arc Fall 2012.

“Eye, Robot” focuses on the intersection of computation, robotic fabrication, and cinematography. The course explores robotic motion control as a creative medium for designers, mainly through the use of the custom robotic animation software platform, designed specifically for the SCI-Arc Robot House. The platform has the unique ability for the designer not only to design motion, but also to program, simulate, and speculate all at the same time. This type of animation space suspends the distinction between simulation, speculation, and ‘the real’, making it very hard for one to determine which is which while questioning traditional notions of architectural representation.[click for gallery]

Gettin into Pareidolia [loading 65%]

if we are not too scientific, we are too straightforward to be fascinated

pareidolia may have helped early societies organize chaos and make the world intelligible for our ancestors.

 —————– .Simple quick-picture question.———————-

—————————————————————————————————–

HAHA

!! The best percentage wins-

-until further notice!!

Simple def. [wiki]

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse.

*Bot Special*

Evolutionary advantage-

-Carl Sagan hypothesized that as a survival technique, human beings are “hard-wired” from birth to identify the human face. This allows people to use only minimal details to recognize faces from a distance and in poor visibility but can also lead them to interpret random images or patterns of light and shade as being faces.

Behind the window – European Street Design Challenge

–0–

Interesting post about the European.street.design.Challenge via ArthurDesign (+)

The European Street Design Challenge workshop started by some conferences in the PICNIC area to share with us Paris and Amsterdam’s vision of creativity and to explain us the schedule of the three coming days. We then went in the Waag Society which is settled in a castle in the Red Light District and which hosted us for the whole workshop.

As soon as everyone was ready we jumped into what we believe was the first thing to do: understanding the people and the area.

Understanding

Tourists represent a major part of what the area is, therefore we first walked in the Red Light District of Amsterdam to understand what we feel as tourists when going around with not much information about the area.

 To compare our feelings we mapped where we felt good and/or bad in the district and we discussed why.

We then listened and discussed with Birgit Büchner (see right picture), Project manager for Museum Our Lord in the Attic and Henny Tinga from the Salvation Army who gave us an historical and cultural point of view of the area. They also shared with us some problems they encounter everyday in the Red Light District such as the number of tourists in the street, the noise they generate and the fact that they don’t see the treasure of the area.

To have different points of view of the district we went down in the street and talked to people: waiters, bartenders, massage shop owners, inhabitants, etc. After speaking with many people we came up with one new conclusion: some people feel like this place is the best ever!

After having these keys to see the district from different points of view, we all went downtown again and indeed, we saw all these old buildings and we were especially astonished by the beautiful view you have from all bridges crossing the canals. And this is the moment where we came up with an other conclusion: it is quite difficult to see this aspect of the area at the first glance.

Vision

Based on all the information we gathered we came up with one conclusion: if the district has an incredible cultural diversity it has unfortunately a disproportionate visual diversity.

We believe that this disproportionate visual diversity is just a matter of point of view. This is the reason why we decided to solve the problem: how can we give people the opportunity to change their point of view of the Red Light District to better see its historical and cultural aspects?

To build a concept that would solve this problem and represent our values at the same time, we listed two key elements that we believe could help people see an other face of the area: contemplation and information.

Ideation

We then brainstormed to translate those elements into a concept. To do so we wrote, made quick mock-ups and scenarios.

Concept

At the end, we all agreed that the best place to make people change their point of view is in the middle of the Red Light District meaning, on the canals.

The bridges offer a unique view of the area which is really beautiful especially thanks to the trees and the old architecture.

 We believe the first step to change one’s point of view on an area is to give him the opportunity to contemplate it. Therefore we propose to create a place on top of the canals to give people a chance to do nothing but admire the area.

 Once people are in the position to see the district from an other point of view we believe they need information to increase their knowledge on the area. As this needs to be seamlessly provided we suggest to build screens that use augmented reality to add an informative layer on top of the reality. This layer is added on top of what people see from this place. Plus, tweets related to the area are displayed on the screen to let people share their thoughts and for the local people to share events and more.

As we want to help people see this other aspect of the district ,we suggest to use this augmented reality screens all across the canals. This way people can easily learn about the area.

To push the idea of changing people’s point of view we want to shock them by making them the one that people are looking at.

Finally we would like this place and those interactive screens to be a interface for sharing different strong points of view. To do so, we would like to invite artists to use these to express there points of view and engage people through it. The previous scenario could be the first idea going in this way.

Presentation

On the final day we presented our process, vision and solution to an audiance and a jury.

We finally had the chance to win the contest!

Now I hope our proposal will be an inspiration for the future evolution of the Red Light District in Amsterdam!

Team members: Anabelle Eugenia, Manon Ely, Franck Noel and Renaud Larivière.

Introducting Apophenia // Leave 0.05% out and GOTCHA

Yo my minion readers.

Until now you have responded quite well to all the “wisdom” posts in the FG. So we decided to kick up the level of your intelligence with a series of new articles

Please enjoy and get some XP points asap..

SO,

We find ourselves in an unquestioning, patternless existence where everything occurs seemingly without reason.

There is no learning from experience: “Once bitten, twice shy,” becomes “Once bitten, never shy,” and the rhythms of the natural world are unappreciated

—0—

Lets take alook

How We Believe (Times Books),Michael Shermer.Scientific American(+),

‘’I argue that our brains are belief engines: evolved pattern-recognition machines that connect the dots and create meaning out of the patterns that we think we see in nature. Sometimes A really is connected to B; sometimes it is not. When it is, we have learned something valuable about the environment from which we can make predictions that aid in survival and reproduction. We are the ancestors of those most successful at finding patterns. This process is called association learning, and it is fundamental to all animal behavior, from the humble worm C. elegans to H. sapiens.’’

Hmm..[believing that we are 70% on the same page here], a sample connection example is tested

Using evolutionary modeling(aha) and having a demonstration through it, Harvard University biologist Kevin R. Foster and University of Helsinki biologist Hanna Kokko in ’08.. tested the theory and tried to have a gist out of it:

They begin with the formula pb > c,

where a belief may be held when the cost (c) of doing so is less than the probability (p) of the benefit (b). For example, believing that the rustle in the grass is a dangerous predator when it is only the wind does not cost much, but believing that a dangerous predator is the wind may cost an animal its life. !!

Gist: natural selection will favor patternicity..whenever |the cost of believing a false pattern is real| is less than |the cost of not believing a real pattern|

[Our goal is to never fall under 80%.. Although reaching a high barrier consists a lot of  mind streaming continuation]

[Example]

SO NOW WE CAN BE MORE STRAIGHTFORWARD

-weakness of human cognision=pervasive(to any direction) tendency of human beings to see order in random configurations

—0—

-[bot special(+)]

”the entire enterprise of science, after all, is the organized and rational search for order in the seeming randomness surrounding us'(skeptic)   + “Science is not formal logic, it needs the free play of the mind in as great a degree as any other creative art.”(believer) =“merely noting patterns or coincidences is not proof in and of itself but, applied properly, can be the creative leap needed to devise new and testable hypotheses.”(DBS Sceptic)

Being a bit fussy[open for anykind of fight] could never really help anyone, so lets experience the  proposed INJECTION on  meaningful coincidence in life

  • Every coincidence is meaningful
  • It  happens to everyone but the person far best qualified to comprehend them is the one whom they occur to
  • It  is usually confirmation of whatever it is you are engaged in at the moment.
  • All meaningful coincidences(Synchronicity) are indeed signs pointing us in a specific direction at the most opportune moment.

~Creativity + Apophenia~

[Bonus to start with +5%] Brugger describes a “‘relativity of creativity,’ i.e., [a] continuum from creative detection of real patterns at one end, to the ‘hypercreative’ interpretation of patterns in ‘noise’ [randomness] at the other end.”

Leonardo Da Vinci, utilizing this tendency in order to harness the creativity of his students, advised them to :

Look at walls covered with many stains . . . with the idea of imagining some scene, you will see in it a similarity to landscapes adorned with mountains, rivers, rocks, trees, plains, broad valleys, and hills of all kinds… also battles and figures with lively gestures and strange faces and costumes and an infinity of things which you can reduce to separate and complex forms.

[Nothing but net]

Apophenia, in its more benign(!) state provides us

1)a powerful tool to make sense and safety of the world and people around us.

2) it is a well-spring of pseudo-science and nonsense, an irrational leap bypassing reason and rationality.

OODA Disaster, Fail // you name it

This seems to be a good day

Although not big fans of designboom, we need to to send a big “thank you” to these guys for sharing this killer project (+)

So,

world famous architecture office OODA participated in the recent Istanbul Disaster competition and submitted an actual DISASTER! (hah you see how funny am i? i play with words lol)

we will start with a visitor’s comment on design boom:

“This is terrible.

This is not architecture.

It’s just fitting a program into an arbitrary form, and then wrapping it up with a pattern.”

by Patricio

OODA: ” natural light filters through the facade derived from arabic patterns”

- hah no dude. As soon as you have a hole light will get in + this is not an arabic whatever pattern. Is a grasshoper surface made by your chinese interns in 2 hours using a cube

A new ZARA store will be accommodated in case this entry scoops the first prize (: ,)

Above you can see a new architectural notion. the EGO skin. when you got a perfectly (lol) working building wrap it up with something stoopid and there you go. It probably works better with Arab Clients (thats why we will include in our tags “arab money” for this post)

First year students could fail presenting this plan!

*If someone finds a worst place to place the ADMINISTRATIVE (oh yeah!) OFFICES gets a prize!!

Ok, WHY this FORM?

self explanatory diagram below…

as we started we will finish with a comment of another furious visitor of designboom:

“That is not architecture.

That is Communication.

Have You finish School? ARchitecture?

Perhaps Just 3D and Rhino.”

Ciao see you later
