The TIK project ended in May 2012 and as one of the results we are proud to present the TIK publication - a common publication of all the involved groups in the TIK project.
You can read the publication online or ask for a hard-copy exemplar at:
callme AT col-me DOT info

As a matter of fact not all the articles written were published. As we think, that all of the articles COL-ME received from it's writers are worth reading, we publish them now online.

TIK Worklabs 2012

col-me general - Wed, 05/02/2012 - 16:47

For the TIK exhibition taking place in May 2012 we planned to do some worklabs with the participating artists in order to build the installations, discuss still the articles published and to enjoy the last TIK months together after a long time of work.

The worklabs took place in
Vienna --> 14-16.03.2012 and 25-27.02.2012
Bratislava --> 8-10.03.2012 and 16-17.04.2012
Additionally we had on the 09 of March the public evening of the sound in Progressbar, Bratislava, where we presented preliminary parts of the works that would be exhibted in Brussels. See the invitation below.

Altogether we had four worklabs in collaboration with the Austrian organization Mz. Balthazaars Laboratories in which we developed our works. A visit in the Viennese 'Haus der Musik' brought Martina Kedrovas and Barbara Hubers work 'Ctesibius' into a more concrete shape, while Stefanie Wuschitz was fiddling on her mossclock and Ludmilla Hornakova put together the idea of the flying balloon.
In the course of this we discussed the articles of the publication as well.

Vienna windclock laboratories

col-me events - Sun, 12/04/2011 - 13:10

moss experimentsmoss experiments

TIK in cooperation with Ms. Baltazar's Laboratories organized a few working labs on windclocks in summer of 2011. As the windclock development was longer on a hold, the building of actual devices was picked up in summer 2011 to boost the output of windclocks. COL-ME went to Vienna several times to work together with the balt-labs on creating more clocks and prototypes.

We tried several approaches - a lot of versions didn't work or the technology turned out not to be too useful for us. So the feather clock as well as the moss clock were dropped in the end and not researched further.

Please see a report on Stefanie's windclockblog on our common wiki:

Soundlab Graz @ESC

col-me events - Fri, 11/25/2011 - 15:10

The soundlab in Graz was a short interference within the TIK project and served the development of COL-ME's soundworks so far. In cooperation with our TIK partner and the local organisation ESC a lab for experimenting with sounds was organized.
The aim was to see, whether we can build and how to build an exhibition device to represent soundworks.
After two days of experimenting with new materials like PLAAST, a material you can form in any shape when it is heated up to 60° we went thru several prototypes.
The original idea was to create 'soundshowers' - mechanical devices that would direct sound in space - basically like a laserbeam for sound. After several unsatisifying experiments with funny shaped things we turned to use PLAAST to see how sound and water would interfere. After creating several underwater soundboxes in all kind of shapes, we came to the conclusion that swimming speakers would give the best results in the question of directed sound in space.

Budapest Wind Time Radio Scheduling Workshop

col-me events - Wed, 08/03/2011 - 20:14

COL-ME in cooperation with the KitchenBudapest.

Your browser does not support the video tag.

In Budapest aim of the workshop was to see, which boxes are still open and we slowly but surely have to start closing. It turned out, that we worked a lot on the windclocks, on a perfection of the javascript for visualizing the data and on creating audiotours. In the end even our radio transmitter tree, that we planned to build since February and several approaches have been (more or less) successfully made worked out.

We decided to have two workshops, to have time to finalize also a proper documentation on the clocks as well as - after months of testdrive - debug the hard- and software. This article covers both workshops - the first one in July 2011 and the second one in October 2011.

TIKArtRadio - Call for participation

col-me general - Wed, 06/29/2011 - 22:31

COL-ME (Bratislava, Slovakia) invites radio makers, collectives and radio stations to take part in an art radio experiment with wind-time from 6 - 11 September 2011.

TIK Radiodays is part of TimeInventorsKabinet, a project dealing with alternative time control systems, investigating time relations within biological and circumstantial ecologies. Within the framework of this project wind-time was established, that we take as a base for measuring a new time.

Radio makers and collectives
Pre-prepare or develop a live radioshow, code a patch using data from the wind-time clocks.
The adventurous approach: the start and/or length of your show will be announced by wind steered time
The cushioned approach: the show will start at a given (classical) time and will be of a given length

TIK-Radiodays II - a recap

col-me events - Sun, 06/05/2011 - 21:26

The TIK Radiodays II took place from the 14th to the 18th of March 2011 in the local hacklab progressbar in Bratislava. We welcomed guests from our partnerorganisations KitchenBudapest and Yo-yo, Prague to participate.

To the list of content and participants

The second part within our Visegrad circle was concentrating on the content of our get-together, which was time. Our furthermost problem was how to make time audible, how we could talk about it and how to create something within the area of our workshop.

After long talks we took a walk through the city to look for certain areas to record, that we would connect with key words, we mentioned before. Hazy time, shortcuts, subjective time, eco-time zones just to name a few.

Dni rádia TIK
Progressbar, Cukrová 14, Bratislava
7. - 10. február 2011

Na mesiace február a marec ohlasuje COL-ME "Dni rádia TIK", sériu workshopov s audiovizuálnymi tvorcami zo Slovenska, Čiech, Maďarska a Poľska, ktorí budú vytvárať kolaboratívne rádio. Začíname technológiami - počas štyroch dní (od 7. do 10. februára) bude v priestoroch bratislavského hacklabu Progressbar vznikať infraštruktúra v podobe zariadení a nástrojov na tvorbu, vysielanie a archiváciu rádia. Pre širšiu verejnosť je určený štvrtok 10. február, kedy budú od 18:30 v Progressbare prebiehať prezentácie výsledkov workshopu a samotných partnerských organizácií.

Každý z pozvaných tvorcov prichádza na "Dni rádia TIK" s rôznymi predstavami o podobe rádia, ktoré spája záujem o experiment: transformácia dát z prostredia, ekologické prístupy, alebo nové určenie času a jeho meranie (workshopy sú súčasťou európskeho projektu Time inventors kabinet, ktorý tieto prístupy zastrešuje).

Network and Programming workshop Brussels

col-me events - Tue, 01/04/2011 - 13:00

Network and Programming Workshop
24th of January 2011 til 29th of January 2011 in Brussels

COL-ME in cooperation with OKNO organizes the workshop 'Network and Programming' at OKNOs place in Brussels, where the long-awaited Windtime protocol will finally be made concrete. The Windtime protocol is what we will connect our WindClocks to and form the new time that will become the basis of TIK developments.
The Windclocks have been developed during the workshop in Korcula (HR) end of September at Grey)(Area - our associated partners. Please see here for Windclock pictures of Korcula.

The workshop is not about teaching, it is about putting our heads together and getting our hands dirty with code. Our aim is, to bring the movement of the wind finally into a virtual sense-giving form for ourselves and to the rest of the world.

Erwan Queffelec has been working on the protocol and will present it, while Geraldo Kogler is making front-end tools to make WindTime more concrete.
