Image: 883 Manga series from the scanlation site OneManga.com.
Total number of pages: 1,074,790

Lev Manovich and Jeremy Douglass, 2010.

——

ImagePlot is a free software tool that visualizes collections of images and video of any size. (The largest set we tried so was: 1,074,790 one megabyte images).

DOWNLOAD IMAGEPLOT 0.9

ImagePlot works on Mac, Windows, and Lunix.
Max visualization resolution: 2.5 GB (2,684,354,560 grayscale pixels, or 671,088,640 RGB pixels).

ImagePlot was developed by the Software Studies Initiative (softwarestudies.com) with support from the National Endowment for Humanities (NEH), the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), and the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA).

Along with the program, we also distribute a number of articles by Lev Manovich, Jeremy Douglass and Tara Zepel that address methodologies for exploring large visual cultural data sets, and discuss our digital humanities projects which use ImagePlot. (The articles can be also downloaded directly from softwarestudies.com.)

Visualizations created with ImagePlot have been shown in science centers, art and design museums, and art galleries, including Graphic Design Museum (Breda, Netherlands), Gwangju Design Biennale (Korea), and The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art.

ImagePlot software was developed as part of our Cultural Analytics research program.

The Open Hardware Scholarship







    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The Open Hardware Scholarship!
    Do you have the next big Open Hardware idea, but just don?t have the funds
    for it?

    The Open Hardware Summit (OHS) is announcing its first Open Hardware
    scholarship this year! The purpose of the OHS scholarship is to support
    emerging artists/inventors and developers by providing funding for works
    that are released as Open Source Hardware. Granting these funds is an
    opportunity to draw attention to the Open Source Hardware movement, to give
    back to the DIY community, and to give you the chance to join a growing
    roster of gamechangers in Open Source Hardware history. If you have a
    project that is in the spirit of the OHS and supports the OHSW definition,
    we welcome your submissions.

    PRIZE
    Upwards of $2000 will be awarded. The scholarship is made available by the
    generous individuals and sponsors who have made the Open Hardware Summit
    possible.

    PUBLIC VOTE
    The winner will be chosen by the public. All projects will be viewable
    online and votes will be collected during the week of the summit. People
    will be able to vote on their favorite project remotely or onsite. A check
    will be presented to the winning artist/group at the conclusion of OHS on
    September 15th at the New York Hall of Science

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. upload a 30 second (maximum) video clip to youtube that showcases the
    concept of your project. The title of the video MUST be the title of the
    work

    2. include a short paragraph in the description of the video. Your
    description must start with the following sentence, and go on to explain
    your project in less than 500 characters.
    Example:
    ?The following project is a submission to the Open Hardware Scholarship
    awarded by the Open Hardware Summit 2011.
    Project title: ?
    Project Description:..?

    3. email the following information to hirumi.n@gmail.com :

    name of artist/collaborative group
    email address
    place of resident (city, state/province, country)
    title of project
    summary of project (500 characters max)
    URL of video clip
    URL of project site that includes your application of the OSHW Definition
    (optional)
    DEADLINE
    For submissions is 12:01am, September 14th EST. NO EXCEPTIONS

    NOTES:
    Please feel free to email hirumi.n@gmail.com if you have any questions.

    Where does the money come from? We had $2,000 USD left over from our funds
    last year and we thought the best way to use it is to give it back to the
    community.

    Good luck!

The Public School (for Architecture) New York

We are excited to announce an open call for class proposals to The Public School (for Architecture) New York. Propose any classes that you would like to take, or classes that you would like to teach, or classes that you would simply like to happen at http://nyc.thepublicschool.org

If you are in New York, then we invite you to an Open House on Wednesday evening, September 30 at the Van Alen Institute on West 22nd Street. Here you can propose and sign up for classes, offer to teach, find out how the school functions, and celebrate the launch of New York’s newest school for architecture. (more info on Open House below)

This project is a collaboration between Telic Arts Exchange and common room (an architectural collaborative based in New York) and it is supported by a New York Prize Felowship from the Van Alen Institute. Excerpting from the fellowship website, which summarizes our joint statement:

“The Public School (for Architecture) in New York City grows out of common room and Telic’s combined interests in the social, political, and economic aspects of architecture and an awareness that the process of working to-scale in the built environment is a productive form of negotiation. Expanding The Public School beyond its existing posts in Los Angeles and Chicago, common room and Telic seek to operate within and between those spaces in New York that have been opened up by current economic crises. Through open-ended discourse and alternative approaches to practice, common room and Telic propose to reactivate dismantled professional networks of the New York architecture community into a productive force that – while unable to repair the economic situation – can collectively begin to make sense of it and explore techniques for adaptation. They plan to install classrooms in semi-public transitional spaces within institutions throughout the city—waiting rooms, lobbies, and la rge corridors—and will publish a corresponding course reader.”

The Public School (for Architecture) New York
a Van Alen Institute New York Prize Fellowship project by common room and Telic Arts Exchange

Open House:
Wednesday September 30, 7-9pm

Van Alen Institute
30 West 22nd Street, 6th Floor
New York, NY 10010

PROPOSE CLASSES NOW at http://nyc.thepublicschool.org

Please join us for the Public School (for Architecture) New York’s inaugural Open House and launch of the Teachers Lounge at the Van Alen Institute. Through the duration of the fellowship term, the Teachers Lounge will serve as a resource for the Public School (for Architecture) faculty, and a meeting place for School participants to discuss classes, curricula, and related topics of interest. Following Wednesday’s Open House, the lounge will be open to the public each Wednesday, 10am-5pm, through December 9, 2009. During the Open House, visitors will be able to meet the instructors, sign up for classes, propose classes and discuss current and potential class topics with Public School administrators.

Fall Schedule:

September 30: Open House
October 13-25: Class Session I
November 1-22: Class Session II (in collaboration with Performa, as part of Performa09, the third visual art performance biennal)
December 1-11: Class Session III

The Public School (for Architecture) New York is a self-organizing educational program for which the curriculum and schedule are proposed by the general public. Administered by common room and the Telic Arts Exchange in collaboration with Performa, courses will be taught throughout New York City as itinerant installations during Fall 2009. The curriculum will be developed through public access to its website. Enrollment is open to non-architects and architects alike. The project locates areas where new ideas are possible, suggests ways that architecture can be engaged even while financial support is diminishing, and seeks to identify and activate a community of users beyond affiliations to a single organization. In doing so, the school aims to create a public for architecture while opening up architecture for the public.

Visit http://nyc.thepublicschool.org to propose classes, comment on or register in a class, offer to teach a class, and find out when and where classes will take place.

The Public School (for Architecture) New York is a Van Alen Institute New York Prize Fellowship project and is supported in part by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Annenberg Foundation.

BACKGROUND

“Networked” proposes that a history or critique of interactive and/or participatory art must itself be interactive and/or participatory; that the technologies used to create a work suggest new forms a “book” might take.

In 2008, Turbulence.org and its project partners — NewMediaFix, Telic Arts Exchange, and Freewaves – issued an international, open call for chapter proposals. We invited contributions that critically and creatively rethink how networked art is categorized, analyzed, legitimized — and by whom — as norms of authority, trust, authenticity and legitimacy evolve.

Our international committee consisted of: Steve Dietz (Northern Lights, MN) :: Martha Gabriel (net artist, Brazil) :: Geert Lovink (Institute for Network Cultures, The Netherlands) :: Nick Montfort (Massachusetts Institute for Technology, MA) :: Anne Bray (LA Freewaves, LA) :: Sean Dockray (Telic Arts Exchange, LA) :: Jo-Anne Green (NRPA, MA) :: Eduardo Navas (newmediaFIX) :: Helen Thorington (NRPA, NY)

Built by Matthew Belanger (our hero!), http://networkedbook.org is powered
by WordPress, CommentPress and BuddyPress.

Networked was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the
Arts (United States). Thank you.

We are deeply grateful to Eduardo Navas for his commitment to both this
project and past collaborations with Turbulence.org.

Open Clip Art Library Release 0.19, and OCAL10K Goal Exceeeded

March 31, 2009 – Release 0.19 of Open Clip Art Library
(http://www.openclipart.org), containing over 12,000 high quality scalable vector graphics (SVG) files released into the public domain by over a 1000 artists, is now available for download and use. In celebration of this accomplishment, since OCALâ•?s last release happened in 2005, and March being 5th anniversary of the Open Clip Art Library (OCAL), the OCAL community set a goal to achieve 10,000 uploaded pieces of vector graphics. The project achieved this with the 10,000th submission from user Boobaloo who uploaded a graphic of an onion. The project congratulates Boobaloo for uploading the 10,000th upload. Also, project congratulates all artists who have uploaded in this anniversary OCAL10K sprint.

The project congratulates Nicu who personally crossed the 500 clip art upload barrier and now has 696 pieces of clip art uploaded to the system. All efforts towards the OCAL10K goal helped boost the site’s registrations and focus on releasing monthly packages once more to make this project a flowing river of clip art uploads. Since all contributions to the project are released into the public domain via the Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication, anyone may use the Open Clip Art Library files for any use including collections, to make money, and to generate compositions. However, the community encourages anyone who uses the clip art to provide attribution back to the original clip art in the form of a link or to announce the use of the clip art in some form.

For the month of April in lead up to the annual Libre Graphics Meeting 2009 in Montreal, May 5-9, 2009, the Open Clip Art Library is setting a goal to achieve 12,000 pieces of uploaded clip art related to spring time, release the 0.20 package of clip art, and to update the siteâ•?s software to ccHost 5. The projects asks all who are software developers comfortable with PHP and MYSQL, to consider joining the project now ti help with three critical tasks of adding rendered thumbnails, update the site software to ccHost 5, and to help roll-out our latest software theme.

Highlight

* An offline HTML gallery to browse through the thumbnails of all clip arts
* Over 4,000 new cliparts as compared to release 0.18.
* 10,000th upload by Boobaloo:
http://openclipart.org/media/files/boobaloo/11895
