Öffentliche Online Konferenz, mit-organisiert von Fabian Hesse. Es geht um den wissenschaftlichen, kritischen und spekulativen Umgang mit 3D Technologien. In englischer Sprache.
12 noon – 1 pm: Matthew Plummer-FernándezThis talk reflects on a body of art work, spanning the last ten years that have taken shape using 3D models either found online or produced from scans of existing objects. The project Shiv Integer for example, is a bot that automatically sourced and combined 3D models from a file-sharing platform and online community called Thingiverse, resulting in a vast collection of randomly generated assemblages.-> British/Colombian artist Matthew Plummer-Fernández works across sculpture, print, software, and installation. His interests in copyleft culture, digital fabrication, and social-computational entanglements interrelate to form a varied body of work that is influenced by the artistic traditions of Generative Art, Critical Design, and Internet Art.
2 pm – 3 pm: Marc RautenhausIn meteorology and in climate science, visualization plays a major role in the analysis and communication of data gathered from observations and computer simulations. Visual depiction helps the scientist to make sense of large amounts of complex numerical data that otherwise would be incomprehensible. The "Met.3D" open-source project takes advantage of state-of-the art graphics technology and results from computer science research to make interactive 3D and uncertainty visualization accessible to the atmospheric community. -> Dr. Marc Rautenhaus investigates application-oriented aspects of visualization and visual data analysis. With a background in both computer science and atmospheric science, his focus so far has been on visualization in meteorology, in particular focusing on interactive 2D and 3D visual analysis methods for ensemble weather forecast and other numerical atmospheric simulation data.
3.30 pm – 4.30 pm: Helen PritchardIn this talk I will present the collaborative work of the *Underground Division* on the volumetric renderings that figure the so-called earth. Through speculative storying, queer infrastructural analysis and art-based inquiries I will discuss how these volumetrics are made operative by geocomputation, where geocomputation refers to the computational processes that measure, quantify, historicize, visualize, predict, classify, model, and tell stories of spatial and temporal geologic processes. -> Dr. Helen Pritchard is an Associate Professor in Queer Feminist Technoscience and Digital Design at i-DAT, Plymouth University and a research fellow in Computational Art at Goldsmiths, University of London. Together with Femke Snelting and Jara Rocha she activates the creative research group the *Underground Division*: an action-research collective that investigates technologies of subsurface rendering and its imaginations/fantasies/promises.
