The University of Western Australia (UWA) is happy to announce the launch of ‘PURSUE IMPOSSIBLE, the 6th UWA Grand Art Challenge.
See the contribution of UABlue in a video:
And there is a booklet that comes via the menu if you click “info”.
About the installment forwarded to UWA:
To see “a color” is an imagination as two humans even standing next to each other will never see the same. Blue is the ultimate color and Ua Blue is the ultimate Blue. International Klein Blue (IKB) was a milestone in art. Now Ua Blue in a virtual realm steps in and gives a machine control to find the “only one”. When the MONDRIAN 3D cube generator has detected that a cube made in Ua Blue was rezzed it shows the Avatar the end of our struggle – the end of The Battle of Colors. No windlight will have an effect on the detector.
Click the generator as described by the menue to create a piece of unique art that only you will have. Never two pieces are ever the same.
The installment is free of rights of third parties. All content is set under MIT open license. Just the creator UABlue has to be credited on all transformations.
I want to reference as contributors:
Prof. Herbert W. Franke for the creating the first interactive art machine named MONDRIAN on a Texas Instruments Copmuter TI 99/4 in 1979. This machine creates rectangles in 2D driven by computer steered randomness and influences of the user.
Konrad Kunze for implementing MONDRIAN in Windows in a 3D version based on the design of MONDRIAN 1979.
Qnav What aka Daniel Jung and Art Eames for re-programming MONDRIAN 3D in Linden Scripting Language.
Exy Atreides aka Sean Lennon for building the mesh Elephant as a team project.
Minimal Blue for developing the concepts of Programmed Minimal Art in the late 70s which lead me now to the search for the Ultimate Blue using a 3D walkable environment.
The chance to get UABlue are set on 1/40 to avoid that the user gets tired and has to try over hours to see a creation of this color happen.
About UABlue “One made of Four”:
In the future the separation of Ident-Units, call them contributors, makers, humans, persons, bots, avatars or as you like, will become a fiction. Read The Artefact to understand the word “I bring brains to the Depth. Forever”. UABlue is one person made by four and nevertheless a true single entity.
