Creative Machine series: #4 in Oxford

Location: Cheng Kar Shun Digital Hub, Jesus College, Oxford

Co-organised by Goldsmiths (co-chair: Prof. Frederic Fol Leymarie)

Installation, as part of the London Design Festival 2022 at the Victoria & Albert Museum.  Daniel Berio, Graffitizer 2

Start date: September 17, 2022
End date: September 25, 2022
Location: Victoria & Albert Museum, London

Graffitizer 2 is an installation featuring a pen plotter and a projector. A computer program generates forms that are incrementally traced with ink by the plotter. At the same time, the drawing in progress is augmented with real-time projections, which results in a dynamic colouring that mixes real ink with projected light as a painterly medium.

Exhibition – Continuum

Start date: July 21, 2022
End date: July 24, 2022
Location: silent green Kulturquartier, Berlin

Liat Grayver, Daniel Berio and Nora Al-Badri

The work is presented as a room installation consisting of a series of drawings made with the support of the e-David robotic painting lab at the University of Konstanz. Using software developed by Berio, a range of instances, each based on a mathematical model of Arabic patterns established by computer scientist Craig Kaplan, were derived using the system; a singular pattern was selected by the three artists as the source material to generate the entire body of drawings.

Exhibition – KUNST FORSCHT

Start date: February 4, 2022
End date: May 22, 2022
Location: Kunstverein Wolfsburg

Group show with Liat Grayver, Katharina Haucke, Marcus Maeder, Martin Lucas Schulze

A production of knowledge independent of hegemonically recognized knowledge is an intention that all the artists common to all the artists in the Kunst forscht exhibition and whose title is a reference to “Jugend forscht”, the well-known competition for pupils and young people in the natural sciences. The Israelian artist Liat Grayver, for example, makes use of intensive correspondence in the production of her paintings and drawings.

intensive correspondence with robots in the production of her paintings and drawings. The Berlin artist experiments with the transformation possibilities of the human voice.
Berlin artist and musician Katharina Hauke experiments with the transformation possibilities of the human voice. To this end, she is developing an apparatus that she calls the MikroKontrolleur. The Chemnitz-based artist deals with physical phenomena of Chemnitz artist Martin Lucas Schulze deals with physical phenomena of various kinds. The result, as he puts it, is an alternative knowledge production in which he wants to make the functional structures of decay processes visible.

From the systematic observation of climatic changes, the Swiss artist Swiss artist Marcus Maeder derives his artistic works captured in multimedia installations.

Exhibition – InComputable Imagery: Reimagining the brushstroke

Start date: November 5, 2021
End date: December 5, 2021
Location: Kulturzentrum am Münster (Richental-Saal, Konstanz)

Liat Grayver and e-David team

The show instigates a complex dialogue between an evolving deterministic process, computational vision analysis, and organic painterly action. Data extracted from a simulated world is transformed into real-world materials before being translated back into data in a continuous loop of action and reaction, of observation and depiction.

Visiting lecture, Daniel Berio: “Procedural and computer aided design of graffiti art and calligraphy”

Date: October 10, 2020
Location: Aalto University, Finland

How can computing tools and robotics support graffiti art and calligraphy? Programmer and artist Daniel Berio presents and demonstrates the use of ”stroke primitives” as building blocks in his design and art.

Public Talk -Paradigms of creativity – New Materialism, Anthropocentrism and Posthumanism / Marvin Gülzuw and Liat Grayver

Date: December 28, 2019
Location: Trade Fair Grounds in Leipzig

Exhibition – (Learning) The Grammar of the Act

Date: May 16, 2019
Location: Library University of Konstanz

Liat Grayver (Artist in Residenz Excellence Cluster Fellowship“Cultural Foundations of Social Integration”,) the e-David team Marvin Gülzow, Casa Paganini InfoMus, and Dr.Antonín Šulc

The space brings together several collaborative works that varyingly employ robotic technologies, motion tracking, video, and painting. As a whole, this body of works investigates the relation between organic practices and machine-based systems, both of which are used to create structures from physical actions (operation) and from the mind (perception).

The e-David robot is positioned in the centre of the exhibition and continuously generates calligraphic- paintings. The data for the robot’s brushstrokes is generated from analysis of the visitors’ movements in the space, captured using a camera and custom motion-tracking software. As they enter the exhibition space, individual visitors’ movements are captured by the video camera, and their location and movement are translated into a digital trajectory that is projected on a large, transparent black screen. The individual trajectories are translated into brushstrokes painted by the robot on a long rice paper roll, which is advanced by a paper feed. At the end of each day, the roll is fully painted with different calligraphic lines describing the movement of visitors throughout the space. These are hung in the gallery space on custom-made frames functioning as evidence and testimony of each of the days the exhibit runs.
