NYC Resistor’s Interactive Show has been around for more than 12 years. Their annual party and fundraiser invites hackers from around the region to show off their cool interactive projects with free beats and beers provided. Tickets $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
This year’s theme is Cursed Technology Shop. The bots have been cooped up too long, it’s time to let their chaos reign.
The Nakanojo Biennale 2021 will finally begin on 9/11 today. However, now that the state of emergency has been extended in the area, the exhibition period in Nakanojo Town, Gunma Prefecture has to be changed to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection. (For details, please check from this page.) Therefore, the Biennale Office has opened a special website to introduce the works of participating artists online.
My online work is being prepared for experience using an experimental VR-friendly platform created by the Mozilla Mixed Reality team. Please prepare according to the following instructions and enter the venue from “Enter“.
First of all, please download the app “perceive トオクチカ” that is actually used at the exhibition of the Nakanojo Biennale to your smartphone. (Currently, the Android compatible application is not ready due to API problems. If you know developing Android App, please teach me.)
Please enter “Enter” below from your computer’s web browser. The first time you enter the room, you will be prompted to choose your avatar, so choose the one you like. These settings are temporary and no history will be recorded unless you create an account on the Mozilla site.
When you enter the room using your avatar, you can move freely and talk and chat with other people who are present at the same time. Please check the Mozilla support page for detailed operation methods.
As you can see by reading the explanation in the app, there are some AR targets in the classroom. Move around the classroom, find the targets, and scan your computer screen with the app. (It is a bit hard to scan the targets on the desks… may need to update…)
There may be people from different countries at the online venue. Even if you don’t understand the language, it may be fun if you can interact with people who were present with “Hello!” and “Kon nichi wa”.
I am going to wander around the online venue during the period. I will inform you through SNS etc., so please follow me via your favorite tools on top right of this page.

A performance installation by Rob Cosgrove and Takafumi Ide
Monday, May 14, 2018
9:30PM – 11:00PM
Staller Center Recital Hall
Tuesday, May 15, 2018
7:30PM – 9:30PM
Tabler Blackbox Theatre
This project was made possible with the generous support of the Stony Brook Graduate Student Organization (GSO).
flickering is a performance installation created by percussionist Rob Cosgrove and artist Takafumi Ide. Using various percussion instruments, amplifiers, fans, and kinetic fabric sculptures, the immersive work is a meditation on the percussionist’s tactile relationship with sustained sound. By deconstructing and recombining sounds into new noisy textures, flickering questions whether sustain is, in fact, an aural deception. Much like how a gust of wind is created by the many rotations of a fan’s blades, perhaps sustain is also just a summation of innumerous little parts.
Another one is a group exhibition at Wave Hill in Bronx, NY.
I have two sound works. The first one I use a parametric speaker. The second one I use a pair of headphone with binaural sound effect. Both of them are site-specific artworks. Hope people can come to listen them on the site.
Opening reception will be tomorrow(9/10) at 2pm / Free with admission to the grounds. https://www.wavehill.org/arts/exhibits/call-response/
I finally finished to install my work “debacle, 2015” in Abrons Arts Center (466 Grand St. NY NY).
It is a sculptural sound installation with PureData w/Arduino/sensor.
(This below photograph is a documentation image when I showed it in the Faculty Exhibition at Stony Brook University in Fall 2015.)
The work has been selected to exhibit at New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival 2016, which opens from today June 13 to June 19.
The entry fee for the installation exhibition is free and opens from 10am to 10:30pm.
Here is the info link for the concert events in the festival, but unfortunately there is no info about visual arts… 🙁
