*From Image to Interaction* 
<http://www.v2.nl/publishing/from-image-to-interaction>
*A new publication by V2_Publisging*
Arjen Mulder



In "From Image to Interaction," Arjen Mulder traces evolutionary lines 
in the fine art of the past five hundred years that have led directly to 
the interactive art of today. He investigates the origins of modern art 
from Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo to Kandinsky, Mondrian and Paul 
Klee, whom he regards not only as great artists but above all as great 
media theorists. In the process, he discovers how the models these 
illustrious predecessors built are still actively being used in the 
fields of contemporary art known as electronic art, video art, machine 
art, digital art, media art, and even "the art formerly known as media art."

*Soundpiece* <http://www.v2.nl/lab/projects/soundpiece>
*Permanent installation Schouwburgplein, Rotterdam*



Soundpiece is an installation that serves as an open audio stage. It's 
consisting of 32 small 100-watt speakers set in a grid under the metal 
surface of the Rotterdam square Schouwburgplein. It is open to a range 
of uses -- musical compositions, works of sound art, poems, perhaps even 
plays. Sound can be prerecorded, but live audio streaming is also 
possible. Check out the possibilities at our website.
