Cocktail robota v cafe Metropolu

Posted by mija on Oktober 15th, 2006

Po uspešnem oživljanju instalacije AsTron z žrtvovanjem dveh web-camov, je uspela tudi operacija postavljanja eksotičnih koktejl robotov dunajskega kolektiva monochrom v cafe Metropolu. Tam vam bosta od torka naprej stregla pijačo z vami nazdravljala po filmsko. Do četrtka le na pogled, ne na pokušino…

After the succesful CP of AsTron installation by sacrifacing two web-cam wires, the monochrom mission Roboexotica was completed at the cafe Metropol too. There you will be able to enjoy their bar company from Tuesday on. Tomorrow you will get only a peak not a sip…

Wellcome AsTron

Posted by mija on Oktober 15th, 2006

V soboto zvečer se je spodaj omenjenima robotoma v postavljanju pridružila še instalacija AsTron iz Avstrije z nekaj manjkajočimi kabli. Malenkost, če to ne bi bil mac serijski 8-polni mini DIN, ki ga nima niti Kiberpipa na razpolago niti njeni prijatelji, in ga je tako ob neobratovalnem času trgovin nemogoče dobti. Če ga ima kdo, naj ga čimprej prinese, čaka ga lepa nagrada – brezplačna vožnja z AsTronom.

In the late Saturday afternoon our beloved robots-to-be got the pleasant company of Austrian AsTron installation though there were some wires missing. The whole situation would have benn a piece of cake, if that accidentally missing wires weren`t the Mac serial 8-pin mini DIN, which Cyberpipe or our friend don`t have at disposal and is impossible to get during the “shop is closed” period. If anyone has it, please bring it to ASAP, you will be rewarded – with a free AsTron ride.

Robot Totem in CelloBot oddajata že prve znake bivanja

Posted by mija on Oktober 13th, 2006

Kot prvo delo na razstavi HAIP06 sta v bivši knjigarni začela kazati znake bivanja robota po imenu Robot Totem in CelloBot avtorja Stefana Doepnerja.

Robot Totem je enostavna konstrukcija iz bambusovega lesa s tremi sklepi, ki jih poganjajo pnevmatske mišice, krmiljene z elektroniko f18-ctrl. Do torka bo imel robot vgrajeno tudi kamero, ki kaže trenutni pogled robota. CelloBot je pnevmatski igralec violončela, ki lahko igra komponirano glasbo, v torek pa ga bo mogoče upravljati tudi v živo. Se vidimo!

Kiberpipa in HAIP skrbita za čisto okolje

Posted by mija on Oktober 13th, 2006

V okviru festivala Haip bo potekala tudi delavnica LED Throwies. Gre za moderno obliko grafitiranja, kjer avtorji z svetlečimi LED diodami, opremljenimi z magnetom in baterijo, okrasijo javna mesta.

V Kiberpipi se zavedamo, da baterije sodijo med okolju neprijazne odpadke. Izkušnje Graffiti Research Lab-a kažejo, da mimoidoči večino LED diod odstranijo sami, saj jih vzamejo kot spomin na dogodek. Morebitne preostale LED diode bomo v doglednem času odstranili sami in s tem zagotovili, da ne bo prišlo do onesnaževanja okolja.

HAIP 06 /Cyberpipe/

2nd Multimedia Festival of Open Technologies

October 17th to 21st 2006


The HAIP Festival puts on display multimedia art forms resulting from creative use of open technologies. It presents works of the young, promising artists and creative engineers from Slovenia and many other European and even Asian countries, who specialize in top-notch, open-standards-supported arts and multimedia art practices.

/Main topic of the festival/ Open approaches to technologies and creativity.

The main topic of HAIP 06 is the new freedom of artistic expression in opensource media through networking. The main line of presentation will focus on the new art of free digital media – and new media content that enabled it in the first place – while laying special emphasis on technical and legal aspects of new digital media with free access. The topic was selected with regards to the current time of political involvement in the changes of national strategies regarding the digitalization of mass media and the significant political, contentual and creative consequences thereof.

/About HAIP/

HAIP is an abbreviation for “Hack-Act-Interact-Progress”. The main aim of HAIP is to establish a creative production platform that takes action at the time of festival realization and five-day happening, and at the same time ecourages direct mutual interaction and furter connecting and networking among all participants of the festival. One of the main attributes is to encourage the HAIP audience to interact actively with HAIP events.

Artists and groups, presenting themselves on HAIP, critically use and treat technology that surrounds us and which is part of our everyday lives. For the most part, they use open and free technology, be it a practical or ideological choice.

The western model of consumtion, incesantly intruding us the idea of neccessary perfection, is gaining more and more passive consumers, who do not realize having the possibility of choice. If people manage to reflect from time to time upon what tipe of food they eat; that is to reflect upon how they communicate, who tells them how to connect, interact, prostest or participate, they will quickly find out that it is their time to act and they have to decide for or against it. They still do.

The first HAIP Festival took place in 2004 in Ljubljana: www.kiberpipa.org/haip04.
