Re: [Yasmin_discussions] ARTISTS AS INVENTORS ON YASMIN

Dear Yasminers,

I hope that this will be a great conversation. I am developing a
research about the relation art, sience and technology in Chile, and I
want to share with all of you the work of chilean pionner inventor
Carlos Martinoya's "Chromatic Abstratoscope", which publish his work
at the first Leonardo mag isue. http://depositomartinoya.wordpress.com/

He create the Phisic Department at the Universidad de Chile, and
develope form phisics an important body of works...

Other great art inventors are for example are :

- Gordon Pask, and his contribution at the cybernetic serendipity
exhibition, curated by Jasia Raihardtand "The coloquy of mobiles" . www.medienkunstnetz.de/works/colloquy-of-mobiles/

- Theo Jansen, which use low tech tec for the acomplishment of kinetic
sculptures. www.strandbeest.com/

Can the therm re-reinassence creators be aplyed to this authors?

Best,

Enrique
