China na Itália

Tenho notado que o mundo está cada vez mais interessado na Asia. Muitos festivais e exposições tem esse tema, o que é ótimo pra gente que está longe conhecer como e o que os orientais estão produzindo no campo das artes visuais hoje em dia. Segue abaixo o release da exposição Chin, China, China! em Florença, Itália. Estou com preguiça de traduzir então vai em inglês mesmo.

from 21 march 2007 to 4 May 2008
CCCS, Strozzina Contemporary Culture Center, Florence (Italy)

CHINA CHINA CHINA!!!, will present the work of 18 contemporary Chinese artists from three different cities- Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou - who are all seeking to define a new cultural identity unfettered by the rules of the global market. A publication (published by Silvana Editoriale) and a series of lectures are planned with the exhibition.
This event ties in with the exhibition on the first floor of Palazzo Strozzi, devoted to the Tang dynasty, universally recognized as a high point in Chinese civilization and central to the Chinese Renaissance.

The aim of the CCCS, under the direction of Franziska Nori, is to approach the much discussed "China phenomenon" from a different point of view. That's why the project is entrusted to three young Chinese curators:
- Davide Quadrio, founder and director of BizArt in Shanghai, the first and only self-supported and non-profit cultural organization in China, also active in The In-Between, a network of alternative art spaces in Europe and Asia;
- Li Zhenhua founder of the independent Art Lab in Beijing, artist and promoter of the new media art in China;
- Zhang Wei director of Vitamin Creative Space Contemporary Art in Guangzhou.

They are all based and operate in different parts of China, sharing a commitment to consolidate an independent critical platform supporting artistic production in China. They want art going beyond official boundaries and not bounded by the art market rules. Art that represents the complex reality of a contemporary China in the complex process of an historical change and cultural transformation.
The exhibition presents a lively interchange between the curators' three sections, representing three distinct but complementary attitudes and perceptions.

Zhang Wei presents in "Throwing Dice" individual visions of human existence in a fragmented and constantly changing world. The videos of Kan Xuan, Pak Sheung Chuen and Yang Fudong (acclaimed in the most recent Venice Biennale), digital animations by Cao Fei (also present at the Biennale), technological installations by Chu Yun, and paintings by Duan Jianyu offer individual stories that engage the spectator in the exploration of a shared existential landscape and in the constant tension between the world of dreams and of reality.

"Art is not enough, not enough!," is a multimedia installation in the Davide Quadrio's section produced by the CCCS and presented as a world premiere. It draws on interviews made by the curator with forty different artists in Shanghai, asked about the role of the artist, their relationship with the external world, the social consequences of their work and the international market effects on traditional artistic production modes. It offers a dynamic anthropological insight into the urban panorama of modern Shanghai.

The focus of "Multi-Archeology", the section curated by Li Zhenhua is the geo-political identity and cultural relativism. Installations by the Mongolian artists Wu Ershan and Ren Qinga, highlight the often conflictual relations between the different cultural groups in China today and pose questions about the undermining of the individual concerning social upheaval.
Both installations, created especially for the exhibition in Florence, take as their theme the human condition in the face of an uncertain future.
The art video by Zhao Liang and Shen Shaomin documents the situation on the Chinese border with North Korea and Russia. An analysis of the consequences of the Mongolian invasion by Genghis Khan on Asiatic culture is compared to the impact of modern globalization, in the constant cultural interchange between East and West.

WiFisense is a wearable object - a purse - that scans for the presence of WiFi (802.11) networks wherever you go. It detects the networks' signal strength and whether they are password protected. When WiFisense finds a network, it uses patterns of light to announce its availability, quality and accessibility.

On a regular walk through the city you pass through many wireless networks. Some of these networks are open and available for anyone to use. As someone on the go, with a mobile lifestyle and a laptop, it could be useful to know when you are in the presence of such networks.

Instead of detecting networks by stumbling over your laptop or relying on warchalking affecionados and wardrivers, WiFisense is a wearable scanner for wireless networks. Take advantage of the ubiquity of an emerging technology and use it to augment your daily life through ambient perception of computing.

2:30 - 5:00 pm

Intel Research
2150 Shattuck Ave (Penthouse Suite)
Berkeley, CA 94704

Once a year Intel Research hosts their "Open House" featuring many of our research projects with interactive demonstratons, posters, and prototypes. This year the Urban Atmospheres group at Intel Research will be debuting a project in collaboartion with other researchers at Intel and UC Berkeley on personal mobile enviromental sensors and tools.

Come and meet us!

The lab is located just off the UC Berkeley campus at 2150 Shattuck Avenue (right across from the Berkeley BART station) in the penthouse suite. The open house will include refreshments, demos of key research projects, and lots of posters and opportunities to meet students, faculty, and researchers.

Intel's Berkeley Lab is one of a small network of university labs started in 2001 with a mission to perform collaborative off-roadmap research with key academic institutions. Most of the work in the lab is governed by a contract called the open collaborative research agreement to promote close cooperation between Intel and university staff. The lab currently houses 14 full-time Intel researchers and many students.

Some of the lab's past work included early activity in sensor networks, the development of the Planet Lab distributed systems test bed, declarative distributed systems, and technology for emerging regions. This year the open house will feature our current research in a variety of areas including:

modernization of communication APIs for internet services
writing scalable and correct programs for parallel computers
developing new approaches to simplify secure distributed computing systems
results of telemedicine deployments in Ghana
mobile environmental sensing and cititizen action
electrically steerable antennas
building high-speed routers out of commodity parts
presenting short films on sustainability
creating efficient algorithms for everyday sensing and learning
