Park and Write

“Tried to recite poetry to induce sleep — often helps. Head like a seive though, all this wandering the country in the last year under such extreme conditions seems to have emptied my head of past knowledge. As if survival demands a new skill set, and the brain clearing space for new information. What you used to know no longer necessary, the past overwritten. Although can’t quite believe that of poetry, poetry is always necessary. Recalled fragments in the end, but whole poems I used to know well eluded me. And that saddened me as much as anything else has recently. Tried really hard to take the focus off my freezing nose and growing stiffness and despondency and remember Yeat’s ‘Song of Wandering Angus’, which is my favourite Yeat’s poem — seemed apt too, given title of my blog, and living here in a car in the woods, and the content of the poem.” From WanderingScribe; also see Park and Write, BBC News.

Cobi van Tonder


Skateboard music interface

Cobi van Tonder, author of the brilliant Ephemeral Gumboots, has been commissioned a new work for ISEA2006. The project, Skatesonic, uses the motions and sounds of skateboards and explores their inherent ambient rhythm to create music. In a way, each move translates to musical parameters and the rider ends up skating through a landscape of music (which s/he influences over time).

Skatesonic will work in both solo and group situation. The system “listens” to space through movement, which it maps out and translates into music. Each of the four boards will map to a unique sound and structural parameters, so if there are 4 riders they will be able to jam like a band. For example, Skatesonic will allow skaters to buffer through a sound file in Max, meaning that as they rolls over a certain distance it is as if they have a record needle under the board, and every inch of movement progresses the sound. The live microphone input also reveals information about the texture of surface under the board and intensity of movement. From an interview with the artist by Sylvie Parent.

Symposium Papers Online Forum

ISEA2006 Symposium Papers Online Forum, April 24th to May 29th: ISEA2006 is taking place in San Jose, California, August 7-13. More information about the Symposium and related ZeroOne San Jose Festival.

Beginning Monday, April 24th, ISEA2006 will host a month long series of discussions on the accepted paper abstracts for each of the Symposium Themes: Interactive City, Community Domain, Pacific Rim and Transvergence.

An important objective to ISEA2006 is enabling conversation and discourse between audience(s) and presenters. Toward that objective this years ISEA incorporates a single main track of presentations + artists presentations combined with a pre-publishing model. The reading of papers is not permitted. Instead authors will present their abstracts in the on-line Forum and then pre-publish full manuscripts weeks prior to the Symposium. The goal is to inform and influence both authors and audiences as well as create conversational relationships and provide for advanced consideration of topics to be presented at the Symposium.

Congress is now pushing a law that would end the free and open Internet as we know it. Internet providers like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress hard to gut Network Neutrality, the Internet’s First Amendment. Net Neutrality prevents AT&T from choosing which websites open most easily for you based on which site pays AT&T more. So Amazon doesn’t have to outbid Barnes & Noble for the right to work more properly on your computer.

Many members of Congress take campaign contributions from these companies, and they don’t think the public are paying attention to this issue. Let’s show them we care – please sign this petition today. Continue reading

Workshop: Social Park:


Collaborative Networks in Public Spaces + The Politics of Play

Social Park: Collaborative Networks in Public Spaces + The Politics of Play Amy Franceschini (Futurefarmers) & Myriel Milicevic Curator : Isabelle Arvers Thursday, 27th april 2006 2-6pm – Mains dÂ’Âœuvres – Mal au Pixel – Paris

Play can offer a common ground for people to meet and exchange. Almost everyone likes to play a game. The term “playing around” infers a sense of impermanence that can allow for letting down ones guard. Within this realm of play, games can provide a relational platform to play-out interpersonal frustrations, role-playing and risk taking. Often times this provides a sense of freedom that cannot be found in a sanctioned panel discussion, meeting or the classroom.

Social Park will be a collaborative workshop inviting artists, sociologists, designers, game designers, urban planners to come together in an expedition. The purpose of this journey will be to foster collaborative networks in the city through the medium of play. The workshop will take the form of an exchange and collective learning experience. The workshop will be divided into 3 parts; research, experimentation and implementation.
