Please join us Wednesday 4th October 2006, 7pm @ Regent Studios, Unit 73A, 8 Andrews Road, London E8 4QN for an evening with PORTA2030 and Broadway Market PORTA-PORTERS public review with John Jordan, Ann Light, Gini Simpson moderated by Marina Vishmidt. :: TALK network reality :: PLAY network vision :: for Broadway Market and beyond. There is food to consume and network to share. Come with your doubts, thoughts and affirmation.

In April 2006 media arts group TAKE2030 initiated a week-long networked performative exercise PORTA2030 with 10 porta-porters on Broadway Market. Staged within the connected wifi zone on Broadway Market, the porta-porters, each assigned with a wifi networking porta-pack, take part in a collective communicative scenario.

For this public review session, TAKE2030 brings together the PORTA-PORTERS to reflect back on the April event with the launch of its DVD. We also invite network media researchers and activists to join us for a cross-over discussion on community and performative media practice. We hope to address the realization of PORTA2030’s responsive network vision by means of network public art exercise. Furthermore, we question how can the PORTA-net be self-sustainable public network for Broadway Market and beyond toward year 2030. Continue reading

Leanardo Electronic Almanac


Special Issue on Digital Poetry

LEA just released an extensive new issue on Digital Poetry. While IÂ’ve just taken a quick look, it appears to be a terrific collection of essays on contemporary digital poetry, in addition to featuring several compelling works in the gallery. The issue edited by Tim Peterson includes essays by Loss Pequeo Glazier, John Cayley with Dimitri Lemmerman, Lori Emerson, Phillippe Bootz, Manuel Portela, Stephanie Strickland, Mez, Maria Engberg, and Matthias Hilner, in addition to works in the gallery by Jason Nelson, Aya Karpinska and Daniel Howe, mEIKAL aND and CamillE BacoS, and Nadine Hilbert and Gast Bouschet. The correlation between the essayists, authors and works reviewed in this issue of LEA and the contributors to the forthcoming Electronic Literature Collection, Volume One suggests to me that the two free publications will make a great pair for teaching. All of the essays in this edition of LEA are available both in HTML and downloadable PDFs. [blogged by Scott on Grand Text Auto] Continue reading

The Spychip Under Your Skin by Armin Medosch: Commissioned by [ ] to accompany the Tagged exhibition, Armin Medosch writes about RFID, first introducing the technology and its context. Briefly introducing Bruce Sterling’s ideas about ‘shaping things’ Medosch adds to this some of my his reflections about the contentious notion of techno-social ‘progress’.

Perimeters, Boundaries, and Borders


Prototyping the Perimeters

Artists, architects, designers, and other practitioners are constantly fashioning new forms and challenging disciplinary boundaries as they employ techniques such as rapid prototyping and generative processes. In the exhibition Perimeters, Boundaries, and Borders, at Lancaster, UK’s Citylab, organizers Fast-uk and Folly explore the range of objects, buildings, and products being conceptualized with the aid of digital technologies. Aoife Ludlow’s ‘Remember to Forget?’ is a series of jewelry designs that envisioned accessories incorporating RFID tags that allow the wearer to record information and emotions associated with those special items that we put on daily. Tavs Jorgensen uses a data glove in his ‘Motion in Form’ project. After gesturing around an object, data collected by the glove is given physical shape using CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling, creating representations of the movements in materials such as glass or ceramics. Addressing traces of a different sort is Cylcone.soc, a data mapping piece by Gavin Bailey and Tom Corby. These works and many more examples from the frontiers of art and design are on view until October 21st.” Rhizome News. Continue reading

Rhizome Tenth Anniversary Festival


August 2006 to February 2007

Rhizome celebrates Tenth Anniversary with Festival in New York and online.

From August 2006 through February 2007, Rhizome will present a number of innovative exhibits, performances, discussions, and online projects throughout New York and elsewhere, in celebration of ten years of leadership in the new media arts field. This ambitious slate of programs will honor the vibrancy, diversity, and strength of this growing field and will provide an opportunity to connect with new media art both online and offline.

Rhizome was initiated in 1996 as an online platform for the global new media art community. At that time, the organization’s focus was primarily upon Internet art.

As the Internet and other computing technologies have come to play a more prevalent role in culture, Rhizome has supported artists’ expanded involvement with these tools and materials. The anniversary festival provides a touchstone moment to celebrate new media art and look forward to further advancements in the field. Continue reading
