ABOUT HUMANAWARE.ORG (THE CREATOR OF THE VOROTRANS ART MOVEMENT)


From 2017 and on, HumanAware.ORG (HA-ORG) publishes Stephane Poirier’s Vorotrans art audio tracks, images, videos and books. HA-ORG is a future NGO currently attached to its founder Stephane Poirier aka SPI aka Magicvan3000 aka DJ-OIFII aka VJ-OIFII. On top of publishing Vorotrans Art, HA-ORG has the agenda to protect humans from corporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) around the world by not only developing AI and distributing Open Source AI but also encouraging and teaching humans how to use its AI so it is beneficial to the greater number of humans (and machines) on (and off) our planet. HA-ORG has been incorporated as a non-profit in Santa Barbara, California, USA back in 2000. Since year 2000, HA-ORG has been dormant until 2017, time at which the HA-ORG web presence development has been initiated by launching VOROTRANS-ORG. HA-ORG has been in an R&D phase since 2000. HA-ORG has developed its AI software, Audio software, Video software, Texto software as well as Audio, Video and Texto content analysis and content generation software. Needless to say HA-ORG software apps have been helpful in generating HA-ORG's human communications content (websites, blogs, writings, books, audio tracks, images, videos and digital fine art products). Since year 2000, HA-ORG (2000, SB,CA) has successively deployed and operated DO-ORG (2002, QC,QC), OIFII-ORG (1995, OT,ON), NS-ORG (1999, SB,CA), AUDIOSPI-COM (2010, MTL,QC), LASAPPS-ORG (2017, MTL,QC), VOROTRANS-ORG (2017, MTL,QC), FM-ORG (2018, MTL,QC), MF-ORG (2018, MTL,QC), MAGICVAN3000-COM (1999, SB,CA) and finally TRANSPARENTSPI-COM (2019, MTL,QC). In 2019, HA-ORG is now operating from Montreal, Quebec, Canada and finally proceeds with its business development phase. Sometimes in 2020 and 2021, it is possible Santa Barbara, California, USA HA-ORG becomes in operations and physically active in USA.



ABOUT VOROTRANS ART


In Vorotrans art, only space partition frontiers are made visible. Such partitioning of the 2-D space is called Voronoi diagram. It is named after the Russian and Ukrainian mathematician Georgy Voronoy. Therefore each Vorotrans still image as well as each Vorotrans video frame is a Voronoi diagram. Vorotrans art is not purely algorithmic art. Vorotrans art is generated using an algorithm seeded using an image. That seed image emerges through the Voronoi diagram like if the Voronoi diagram was transparent. From which the name Vorotrans art standing for Voronoi transparent art.




ARTIST’S STATEMENT


I have been introduced to many computer graphics algorithms while studying complex systems and developing visual recognition software. In attempting to automate the interpretation of airborne forest cover images, I have used algorithms to model and to represent forest image textures in the computer. Inspired by some of the geometric data representations used in this science, I have applied these computer graphic algorithms onto common vegetal and animal scenes in order to generate organic Vorotrans computer art.


In my Vorotrans art, I want the organic to manifest itself out of the geometric. Natural motions and natural shapes emanates from visual scenes filtered by Voronoi diagrams.


Voronoi diagrams are composed of highly geometric visual objects. Common vegetal and animal scenes are composed of highly organic visual objects. When filtering vegetal and animal scenes with transparent Voronoi diagrams, one gets the fusion between the geometric and the organic, a computer generated semi-abstract art visually captivating to the human eye.




BIOGRAPHY


Stephane Poirier is a pioneer in Vorotrans art – art made out of transparent Voronoi diagrams. Poirier currently works as a software developer at OIFII.ORG and he is also OIFII.ORG’s founder. At OIFII.ORG, Voronoi diagrams are used, for individual tree level forest texture recognition out of airborne Lidar data, in order to automate the process of building new forest maps for governments. In 2017, Poirier had the idea to use these Voronoi diagrams combined with a specific algorithm to produce semi-abstract art called Vorotrans art.


For the years to come, Vorotrans art installations and live event visuals are made available to art galleries, music artists and music event producers around the world.


Poirier has held many research positions at Laval University, University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, University of Masssachusetts in Boston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Sherbrooke and McGill University. Over the years, Poirier has also held many corporate positions in Quebec and California. He has developed commercial software for EXFO, MATROX, ISERA, CJ and XEROX.

Human Aware ORG 2020 and following Recruiting Individuals and Machines for SPI CORP Never done DMT other than the more or less equivalent chemicals naturally produced by your body? Never exactly experienced visuals exactly like this DMT Visuals youtube video? The births of figures and colors in your brain are unique and very different from this push? Do you feel more human than human too? At times? Always? Always Yes and Always No, like us, too? Crispy world this one of emotions, hey? So, what next? You are a love surfer too? Drama trapped/untrapped in 0 and 1? Seconds trail. Nanoseconds trail. Femtoseconds trail. The space is a stage? Your actions are arbitrary but, mandates, for your body and every living lifeforms around, to enumerate the least, H2O observation and management along with careful choice of resource usages and displacements? In 2020+, we are recruiting such you(s) at More human than human (OIFII-ORG), from HA-ORG and DO-ORG

2020feb21, Friday, comment from one magicvan3000 Facebook friend: With all due respect (& I hope we can agree to disagree) the Dems have no one that has the public recognition to be a viable option to President Trump... 2020feb21, Friday, comment reply from magicvan3000: In my opinion. It is always very difficult to be a sitting president. It is always very difficult for a sitting president not to be re-elected. The USA Democratic Party, in my opinion, is a massively corrupted organization. Like so many on our planet. I just love the words of Tulsi Gabbard that is running to fix not only the democratic party but also the main office in D.C.. She is simply Trump 2.0 on steroids in a female avatar, she is so well fed. So, would love her to win. But if it happens in 2024 for Tulsi it is fine by me, not ideal, but hey. If Burnie 2020 goes up. I will also love to see that. If Trump stay for a second round. I simply hope the corrupted democrat party will stop the

Vorotrans founder aka Magicvan3000 driver has now a FAA group and an official Magicvan3000.COM website On FineArtAmerica (FAA), Magicvan3000 group will be used to aggregate anyone's artwork of this 1971 VW Van driven in Southern California 20 years ago. See history and purpose sections here below. Magicvan3000.COM is deployed in August 2019. In 2019 on Magicvan3000.COM, it will be possible to pre-order the upcoming book Transparent SPI - a how to book to inspire entrepreneurs and artists to stay focus on their purpose and always plan and schedule themselves 20 years ahead. Later in 2020 from Magicvan3000.COM, it will be possible to buy Audio and Video software Apps for Music artists, Music producers, DJs, VJs as well as for Musical event producers. In the meantime in 2019, see AudioSPI.COM that provides support for these Open Source Audio and Video Apps. HISTORY: The Offworld Technologies Corporation promotional vehicle magicvan3000 was a 1971 VW bus driven around in

Thanks for faves!
Hi Stephane, I saw your post on one of the generative art groups.  I've just started my own group, since none of them seem to be too active.  Check it out generative-design.deviantart.c…

Feel free to join and submit your work.  It's only me right now, but maybe we can get people interested in generative art!
Hi MK,

I tried to join your generative art group, but it says it cannot accept new join requests at the moment.

Steph
Ok, sorry.  This is my first group.  I guess I have to set that up ...  I will get back to you.  Thanks!
Hey there! I see you're new to Deviant Art- welcome! And also, I run the OptimisticVisionary group, and I thank you for joining us! I hope you have fun creating, sharing, and interacting! You've got a great gallery! Nice to meet you! :)
Thanks AliDee33, your gallery is very too!

Steph
