DUB Architecture

'''Simone Carena, Professor of Digital Media and Space Design at IDAS - Hongik University and the founder of MOTOELASTICO'''


DUB Architecture

A technique to manipulate music is used in space design. Specifically to remix traditional Korean Space. The Keynote will show examples and will question the impact on society of manipulation, reshaping, echoes and panoramic delay. The Hanok house Dub, the Happolice Installation (with pink police shields) and Seoul citizen Hall will be briefly shown in parallel with some restoration work in Italy.

DUB consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings and is achieved by significantly manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually by removing the vocals and emphasising the drum and bass parts (this stripped-down track is sometimes referred to as a 'riddim'). Other techniques include dynamically adding extensive echo, reverb, panoramic delay, and occasional dubbing of vocal or instrumental snippets from the original version or other works.

This distorted view should trigger some discussion on society and culture from the guests and audience.


“Dubbing it All: A panel discussion on Convergence in Culture and Society”

Moderator: Simone Carena

Abstract Panel:

This panel promotes a vision that includes those unique to the guests invited. Their presence will raise the discussion to a unique level where their talents will form a mix that will voice their personality and work and unveil the trajectory, or path that has give force and form to their talents. The presence in the room is that of art, architecture, fashion clipping and overlapping in the spirit of the ghost of Swiss-Jamaican Lee Scratch Perry. Brief presentations by participants will offer a powerful ripple just like on the surface of a pond or a lake, but one that will undulate as thought the society ocean like a powerful dub sound wave, leaving guests want to know more about the possibilities of the mix. Expecting rebellion issue to moderate, issues will be dubbed and mixed into the riddem of the discussion.


Keynote 1:


Jill Scott, Professor for Research at the Institute Cultural Studies in the Arts, Zurich University of the Arts (ZhdK)


Many artists and designers are becoming more interested in neuroscience research methods, technologies and discovery. This trend is due to the fact that perceptual feedback loops are located at the heart of both art and neuroscience disciplines. Furthermore, neuroscience labs are full of new wet-materials, microscopic views of neural reality, innovative lab processes to measure human behaviour and creative experiment building that might prove relevant to the practices of making more provocative and activist art in the future. Neuromedia is my own combination of basic neuroscience research and media art. My aim is to reveal how scientists investigate perception and behaviour at the molecular, cellular and systems level and combine this with poetic metaphors from “artist-in-lab” experiences about sensory impairment and environmental impacts on the human body. I will present examples of Neuromedia art projects, that show how human computer interaction (HCI), can move beyond technique to immerse participants in a drama of neural sensory discovery. The aim is to cause a post-reflective experience by allowing the viewer to “touch” science.

Keynote 2:


Ariane Koek Director Arts@CERN programme, CERN, Geneva


Take the Large Hadron Collider - the world's largest machine, a collaboration 11000+ particle physicists from 680 institutions from 100 countries around and world - and you have CERN. This famous laboratory for particle physics outside Geneva in 2012 announced the discovery of the Higgs Boson thanks to the collisions in its collider. So why should this laboratory known for colliding particles be now also colliding arts and science with its first official arts programme? What is the arts programme? How do these creative collisions between arts, science and technology happen? And do results matter?
