Hakspeys, Denis Perevalov, Anastasia Krokhaleva - the magic of programming  3rr3465.
 3rr3465. What attracts us to magic? This is something beyond our understanding, something interesting, something unusual. And programming to some extent is magic. And there are wizards in programming who, with the help of electronics /programming, do some unimaginable and original things - that take us beyond the ordinary, into an unusual world.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. We continue a series of publications on the topic “Hackspace with a human face”, where we present interviews with participants of our Hackspace MakeItLab in Yekaterinburg. Last time we talked about Stepan Glushko (ornithopters) .
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. This time the interview will be from 3-3343445. Denis Perevalov [/b] (mathematician, media artist) and 3r33445. Anastasia Krokhaleva [/b] (Master of Art History, media artist).
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. Denis develops interactive installations (based on light effects, electronics /robotics, OpenCV visual processing, neural networks, etc.), implements his ideas and helps in the implementation of the ideas of creative people. In particular, it uses the openFrameworks framework, about which There was a small tutorial . In addition, he is the author of the book on openFrameworks, and lectures on machine learning (deep learning).
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. Since 201? Denis and Anastasia have worked together as an art duet “ Museum of the ever-playing attractions ". Create interactive light and sound installations.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33333. 3r33333. Yes, and on KDPV - the Microcosmos project
[/b] 3r3333391.
3r33393. 3r33394. 3r33466. 3r33466. 3r33466. 3r33466. 3r33466.
 3rr3465. An interview with Denis and Anastasia was helped by Ekaterina (the editor of the congenial project “Innovator” - the community of makers), she said: r3r3455.  3rr3465. Museum of the ever-playing attractions ". We create objects from the field of modern art, complemented by the latest technologies, but purposefully make them playable. We lay deep, sometimes even provocative meanings into each object. Therefore, it seems to the child that he understands everything, starting to interact with the object, and the adult, rather, on the contrary.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. A. [/b] We are interested in working with interactive. But when we began to exhibit in this format, some critics reproached us with the fact that the interactive is not art, but entertainment. After analyzing our work, we stopped at the fact that it is the interactive that provides special opportunities for understanding both the concept itself and art. If our works will be perceived as attractions - this is only a new field for discussion, which we decided to promote in our projects.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465.

The museum is a familiar concept. Virtual is something new. Mb coming up with other spaces for the new? How old and new technologies are combined?


 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] Our works are also exhibited in classical galleries, but we are also mastering new ones - urban and natural spaces. Performance, installations - this is what we are working on and embody with interest. We are looking for new forms and ways of filing.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. A. [/b] By education I am a master of art history and for several years I have been working as an art medium. In our city in Yekaterinburg, periodically “3r3r1616. Ural Industrial Biennale
"And" Bazhov-Fest ", where artists should be exhibited in non-exhibition spaces. These are not museums, but, for example, abandoned industrial buildings - and this is such a challenge for the curator and artists. It is more complicated here, since the space is more unpredictable, it can be interpreted in different ways for the visitor. In museums of classical art, everything is ready for exhibiting works, therefore even to a contemporary artist from the point of view of solving various kinds of exposition tasks happens on such sites quite comfortably. So, for example, the Hermitage opens its halls to new art and, thanks to some kind of shock, the viewer manages to find new meanings. The Moscow Biennale was held in the Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val It is very interesting for artists to open a new space of the museum, which is already saturated with classical art, to build modernity into accepted-understandable constants.

Does music complement your work?


 3rr3465. 3r3179.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] I started doing music earlier than programming. The first thing I started programming was a synthesizer. We include sound art, sound things. I am now a senior lecturer at the Ural Conservatory. The sound is present in many of our works. We even create some objects just for the sake of sound. For us, visual and audiality are inseparable, complementary or independent. Such an experience for the viewer.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. A. [/b] For me, the sound side of perception was closed before the meeting with Denis. I did not know how to approach her and did not see much sense in it. Now, when we began to work together, I really like the sound that appeared in our works.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r3196.
 3rr3465. 3r-33199. The installation "The threshold between the worlds" 3r3200.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] We have an installation “3r3207. Threshold between worlds
“Is a small thicket where light pulsating bands are hung, and around this thicket there is a set of several stereo speakers. And it turns out that the viewer, entering the thicket, not only sees the pulsation, but also hears whispers around him. This turns a thicket into a certain sacred world. And in our most recent works, we often do not add sounds, but find pleasure in the sound of the mechanisms themselves. “ Mistress Present days "- the sound of the motors of the three mechanical hands creates the desired sound design and atmosphere for the viewer: 3r3455.  3rr3465. 3r33333. 3r33333.

3r33393. 3r33394. 3r33466. 3r33466. 3r33466.
 3rr3465. The installation consists of three robotic arms holding glass crystals, three laser cannons and cabinets with a monitor.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. The concept of [/b]
 3rr3465. In the tales of Pavel Petrovich Bazhov, there is always an interaction of two sides: a person who is eager to get what he wants, and an incomprehensible, other-worldly force possessing secret knowledge. This force takes various guises from Bazhov, among which the Mistress of the Copper Mountain is the most powerful. Today, according to the authors, artificial intelligence (AI) can act as such a force. As the masters of mining could not fully understand the nature and motives of the Mistress, so the users of new technologies are now only beginning to learn the possibilities of AI, which is gradually becoming the “master” of the new digital world.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. Is artificial intelligence capable of thinking freely, beyond the categories predefined by man, and what will the person feel in this case when interacting with him? And if the AI ​​is endowed with its own will, will it extend a helping hand to people, or, nevertheless, the Hostess will not help Danil to the Master to create a stone flower?
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. The authors of the installation offer viewers to interact with artificial intelligence - the Mistress, who realizes her will with the help of robotic hands. By controlling the laser setups, viewers can try to get into the crystals that hold these hands. But only the Mistress decides who to help in this, and who does not.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. Technical details 3r3446.
 3rr3465. The installation consists of 15 LewanSoul LX-16A digital servomotors, three actuators, three analog motors, three optoresistors, 8 Arduino boards (4 Uno, 3 Nano, 1 Mega), three glass crystals and three green lasers.
 3rr3465. The brushes were scanned and printed on a 3D printer, as well as other parts of the hands.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. The software is written on openFrameworks, with external addons ofxKuTextGUI (GUI), ofxKu (utilities), ofxTSNE (implementation of the t-SNE algorithm). All calculations are performed on a Windows computer. 3r33466. 3r33466.
 3rr3465.

Is there a concept of "competition" in your work?


 3rr3465. Many authors and groups work in the direction of technological art. From the point of view of technologies and concepts, of course, there are those who are close to us in spirit, those to whom we are oriented. There is no competition as such. We have specificity. In programming and concepts. For example, a drone tied on a rope
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. A. [/b] How, for example, is the process. There is an idea. A concept is developed from it. And then - visualization. We are exploring what has already been done, what is being done. Most often, we understand that we are doing unique things. But the competition is and it is powerful, because now it is the vanguard of art.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] We test technology for their “weirdness”. This is our, slightly maniacal goal - to apply technology non-standardly, immersing the viewer in a new environment for sensations. At the same time, having foreseen a system of interaction with this environment, so that each one has new sensations and new thoughts.

Can you say a few words about your old, but still interesting project “Stihomashina”?


 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] This project I did with the poet 3r-3294. Tanya Just 3r3458. . In real time, the sound of speech was captured and presented in the form of loops, as is done in electronic music. It turned out to create instantly a musical background directly from the readable work. Thus, such a “techno-poetic composition” was born before our eyes. Especially well listened to psychedelic poetry.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465.

Probably, it is interesting to meet high school students in time to be intrigued by programming, to discover something new in the symbiosis of music and words, to try yourself in poetry And does your audience include schoolchildren?


 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] Rather, they are people of 20-40 years. Those who are interested in contemporary art. Sounds of poetry, for example, are more for lovers of sound or electronic music. For the untrained spectator, they were very extravagant. To understand the technological experimental art requires special training, much wider school curriculum.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465.

Is art a hobby for you?


 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] No, this is the main thing. We just do not lock in - we consider other areas of activity as feeding with ideas, technologies, as an important experience. Much can be seen in business and commerce, not less - in the course of communication with students. Even when you write a textbook or a book - ordering knowledge, new concepts grow. Like-minded people, customers and fans also come from different areas.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. A. [/b] In the first place we always have art. But when you participate in different projects, you become more resilient, you develop objective principles and views.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] But if you do the same thing for a long time, then you lose touch with people, their expectations, and with the boiling life of a large and different society. The world is multi-polar, and if you can visit its different poles, you should not neglect this. In my world there is art, commerce, teaching, music. And all this is not to earn money, but to feel full in the daily cycle, to be "on the wave." In addition, we are a little more builders, researchers and analysts - we ourselves carry out installation of structures, we are ready to replace parts and materials, we are modeling alternative solutions.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465.

Do you have free time?


 
A. We are fanatics. Why do we need free time, if it can be spent on continuing work? :) This is for us the meaning of life.

In Yekaterinburg, a strong maker movement. Oleg Evsegneev, 3r33343. nemilya
- MakeItLab hackspace. Do you collaborate in the field of engineering creativity?


 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] We often see the leaders of the Yekaterinburg maker movement. We really need the help of hackspace, makerlab and we gratefully accept it. Of course, we can do everything ourselves, but projects are growing and growing, therefore, as our orders are interesting for the people from the Hackspace, so for us is a significant support in creating installations.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. A. [/b] For the artist, it is important to create some kind of infrastructure of reliable cooperation. Hackspace is our wonderful partner who understands and supports all our endeavors.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465.

Does the world of contemporary art require more talent or scientific knowledge?


 3rr3465. 3r33434. A. [/b] Art should be relevant. We must grope for the nerve of modernity. What is needed more for this - an artistic component or engineering thought is a difficult question. Rather, the overall high level of culture and education, and constantly growing.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] The answer to this question is precisely that we work as a duet of a conceptual artist and software engineer.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465.

The most touching /expensive project of your duet?


 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] Of course, this is our first collaboration. Nastya had a light installation. I supplemented it with interactivity and sound. “ Microcosm »We showed in Technopark of Yekaterinburg. And this is where our joint work began.

 3rr3465. 3r33434. Description [/b]
 3rr3465. In the depths of the dark room stands the cabinet on which the lamp and filter are located. The light of the lamp passes through a rotating filter and leaves reflections on a nearby wall and a measured melodious sound is heard. When a person tries to approach the installation, the sound is transformed into a roar, and the lamp begins to flash.
 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. The concept of [/b]
 3rr3465. The installation embodies the author's vision of the model of the ideal universe - a ball of many illuminating drops from the inside. Every person in particular and the whole of humanity as a whole is involved in the constant movement of the Universe. We are not given to feel this, but only in moments of rare insights can we try to realize the eternal circulation of all that exists in the unknown black space of the Cosmos. Moreover, this movement does not stop with the onset of death, but only changes, takes a different form. And this image is constantly oscillating, multi-spatial ball, consisting of billions of sparkling particles, the authors tried to embody in his work, using a specially designed light filter.

 3rr3465. The installation is a cabinet with a height and a length of 1 meter, and a width of 50 cm. A lamp and a filter are installed on the cabinet. Outside the cabinet, there is an Asus Xtion depth camera and a speaker system. Inside the cabinet is a computer.

 3rr3465.
 3rr3465. 3r33434. D. [/b] Yes, “Microcosmos” on the background of today's projects is small and light. Now the volumes, sizes, quantity of electronics in our installations are growing and we hope that we give the viewer the opportunity to experience a new sensory experience.

When playing games, it is important to stay hydrated. If you tend to get caught up in your favorite games, you might not notice that you need to drink or take a break. Hydration is very important to your physical well-being; therefore, drink something regularly while playing video games. https://hacksmista.com/
