Multimedia Mosaic based on the Images du futur Collection
are presenting a selection of video excerpts from the Images
du futur Collection. You will be surprised to see the
early stages of computer animation from the '80s. Due to
the great advances in digital techniques and special effects
since that time, these excerpts, which are not so far removed
in time, will give you the impression that they belong to
a distant past.
Levin Documentary File: Dialtones (A Telesymphony) and Messa
month we are presenting a file on Golan Levin. Over the
last few years, working in collaboration with Zachary Lieberman,
this artist, composer and software developer conceived and
created performances and installations that in a way answer
the following question formulated by the artists: If
we could see our speech, what might it look like?
We have updated the texts and documentary material on the
projects supported by the Foundation. [To

of Design: a collaboration between the Daniel Langlois Foundation
and the CCA
of Design will take place at the Canadian Centre for
Architecture in Montreal on November 18, 2004. This colloquium/workshop
will examine the growing use of digital tools in architectural
design as well as in the construction and building material
fields. The colloquium and a roundtable will provide the
occasion to reflect on both the consequences and changes
that this entails for architectural theory and practice.
The pressing need to better understand questions concerning
conservation and archiving, which such tools and technologies
raise for research institutions, will also be addressed.
