ASAHI 4.0 OFFICIAL LAUNCH brought to you by HARD-CORE   asahi4.com  Text Collapse

 

"Breathtaking to de-learning to sea" Skyler Lindenberg, CEO of HARD-CORE.

 

No other places than those where we work have been subject to the rigorous changes over the last centuries; from steam engine (1.0) to electrical energy (2.0) to IT (3.0) to Cyber Physical Systems (4.0). This latest Industry 4.0 is currently being developed focusing on the production and incorporation of Autonomous Machines and Virtual Environments within the cycle of industrial production, ultimately leading to a Smart Factory.

ASAHI 4.0 is the latest in a line of curatorial robot tools bought to you by HARD-CORE. AFK (Away From Keyboard) based notions have been applied to digital spaces helping the user to navigate and making the otherwise abstract binary environment familiar. HARD-CORE’s interest lies in reversing that mechanism, making unforeseen ideas plausible with the aid of algorithmic processing. In order to overcome the preconditions of white-cubed exhibitions, an external factor needs to take control. For this reason, HARD-CORE has developed ‘Asahi’, a series of algorithmic curatorial robots in order to explore digital scenarios applied to physical space.

 

 

"It might seem farfetched, yet we do see opportunity and potential for a 4.0-isation of artistic production in the sense of its shift toward a service oriented practice, integrated with the latest available technologies. The goal is not to force anyone under a 4.0 model against their will but to think of a device on which we, as artists, can rely and experiment with. Coincidentally we have been working in the past years on a curatorial robotic device that is currently arriving at its latest successor named: Asahi 4.0."

 

HARD-CORE will launch its latest curatorial robot, Asahi 4.0, on a dedicated conference held the 30th of September 2015 in London.

Everyone interested is cordially invited to come together at a secret location in London to rejoice the future of curating and art through the robotic device Asahi 4.0 UPDATE: Booking is now available. Book here for free.

The conference will feature a presentation by CEO of HARD-CORE, Skyler Lindenberg (known as Skylind) giving a hands-on overview of the added features descending into Asahi 4.0

Jonny JJ Winter, myso-calledlife.me, for Open Your Kimono

 

In the spirit of 'opening ones kimono' Jonny JJ Winter aims to reveal himself without editing or selecting, physically releasing all the photographs taken on his Samsung Galaxy SIII mobile phone during the whole of 2013, a total of over 3000 images. No photos have ever been deleted, some are beautiful, some are dull, and plenty are embarrassing. A mass release of personal history in the most personal way possible. The available photographs will be shown as filenames – consisting of the date and time the picture was taken – and listed without thumbnails online at www.myso-calledlife.me. Here a 4x3" print of each photograph will be available to buy as a one-off art work printed using a Polaroid GL10, after which the file will no longer be available. This process will continue until each of the photographs have gone. On the night of the launch JJ will use the mobile printer to print the photographs on the spot.

LAUNCHING TUESDAY 6TH MAY 2014, 7pm.
Please join us at the Montague Arms to celebrate the launch of OPENYOURKIMONO's first commission by Jonny JJ Winter.

LaTurbo Avedon, Exit-01, with Open Your Kimono

 

"We think the internet is real" Pirate Bay co-founder's Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi

LaTurbo Avedon is a render artist who has been working prolifically for the past few years, making an impact on the art world both in physical and digital environments. Her background is not necessarily relevant, the questioning of her notions comes directly from the work she produces. Visual artist, poet, music producer, party promoter, dancer, lecturer, LaTurbo encapsulates a romance of the digital architecture we are migrating in and out of. She believes in spaces, places, in visions and moments. LaTurbo is real.

"I enjoy the creation of place, but I also think the white room is just one small part of a larger architecture. digitally, architecture doesn’t require specific laws. Pieces can be taken out. A room can be opened up. It is important to see these objects as malleable parts."

For exit 01, LaTurbo explores the virtual reality headset as a platform for immersing yourself in these environments.

"Many of my current projects are now being developed with virtual reality support. I believe that the internet is something that is visited. A place that no longer requires a predominant 2 D engagement. I can introduce my work with perspective and scale now. As an introduction to some of my sculptures, I created a studio that people could experience via the Oculus Rift headset. Many of these objects had previously only been seen as flat images."

Hannah Lees, thisisthepath, with Open Your Kimono

 

Hannah Lees' work investigates ideas of the cycles of constancy and mortality; the sense that things come to an end and the potential for new beginnings. This constancy, be it in religion or in organic matter, is visible in her practice through her attempts to make sense of and recognise traces of life. Her work focuses towards an understanding of the essential nature of the materials she uses.

Alongside the launch of the website, Lees will also launch her latest publication (edition of 30). Both the website and publication consist of imagery and a text piece based on Buddhist and self-help texts.

Join us 27 June, 2014, at the South London Gallery Bookshop to celebrate the launch of thisisthepath.com

Energy Pangea's new release : (RARE EARTH SCULPTURES) Lanthanum 2014,
Takes place at Obika Mozzarella Bar in Canary Wharf.

….OK, NOW IMAGINE A FULLY FUNCTIONAL DESIGN-PROTOTYPE RESEARCH FACILITY WHICH IS ACTUALLY FOCUSED ON COMPARATIVE STUDIES AND CRISIS REPORTS THAT SEEK TO UNDERSTAND AND CONTEXTUALISE CHANGES IN CONSCIOUSNESS BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE Y2K BUG AFTERMATH EXPERIENCED BY THOSE BORN AFTER THE YEAR 2000. BUT NOT AS SOME WILDFIRE MARKET DRIVEN ENCLAVE OF HYPERTENSION AIMED AT TREND-FORECASTING NEXT SHIT. AND NOT AS SOME RIDICULOUS SITUATION WHERE-BY YOUTH ENERGY IS EXPLOITED, TURNED INTO A COMMODIFIED RESOURCE AND FED UPON BY SELF-SERVING ZOMBIES EAGER TO GET A TASTE OF YOUNG BLOOD, TREATED AS SOME KIND OF FREE-FLOWING CULTURAL VALIDATION TROUGH.
Something different...

Iain Ball, Energy Pangea, with Open Your Kimono

Developed as a decorative table sculpture intended to act as corporate camouflage lateral to other permanent corporate sculpture located in and around the privately owned Canary Wharf Group territory, Energy Pangea's new (RES) Lanthanum project uses the private function space of Obika to reverse-swarm fund the potential incubation of The Centre For Youth Consciousness (centreforyouthconsciousness.info), an organisation which would aim to focus non-market research on post-millennial (Gen-Z) youth consciousness as speculation on alternative possible futures.
The sculpture, functioning primarily as affective-attractor towards gaining possible backing/funding and participants for the Centre for Youth Consciousness, will then use the idea of 'manifold hack-space' to realise itself as a legitimate social-actor.
