The Synthetic Times
With the AI hype'n'craze all over, I started experimenting with an autonomous news portal. Is it fake news or real? Is it a persiflage of today or a prototyped future?
Coupled Data Intercomparison XR Roller Coaster @ STWST48x8
Roller coasters are the showcase demo of VR experiences. The Coupled Data Intercomparison Extended Reality Roller Coaster, however, sets you up for a ride along real datasets. The tours take you up and down the crude oil price over last 160 years, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (last 100 years), the bitcoin price, the global temperature anomalies of the last 150 years or the atmospheric C02 concentration of the last 800,000 years!
Come and ride along during Ars Electronica 2022:

Danube Panorama Project - revsited 2022
a.space @ AMRO22
Thu, June 16th,
15:00 – 18:00
a.space is a distributed sound installation, that interconnects different physical venues through a directional loop, affected by space, feedback, and acoustic events. Through a virtual platform, it is possible to listen, choose a point of perspective, and interact with others.
The project was realized and first shown in the frame of AMRO22, in collaboration with bb15, Emanat Institute, Ústí nad Labem House of Arts. It was activated by Stefan Tiefengraber in Linz, Polina Khatsenka in Ústí nad Labem, Luka Prinčič and ala pecula in Ljubljana.
The project was conceptualized by Davide Bevilacqua and Gabriela Gordillo, realized by servus.at with the support of Linz_Sounds 2021. The web interface is developed by Michael Aschauer, its source code is shared for further use as an open-source tool.
The virtual platform is accessible online at https://a-space.servus.at

A tour-de-force through virtual, augmented and photographic realities, the blockchain, 3D prints from landfill garbage and a bicycle.
