Chris Speed’s research addresses the synthesis and tensions between Social Navigation, Digital Architecture and Human Geography.

Fountain Miami [US]

miami_2007_map.jpgThe avant-garde has always laid claim to history through its challenges and victories over the status quo. In 1917, at the unjuried Society of Artists exhibition, Marcel Duchamp unveiled the world’s most famous ready-made art object: Fountain. It is in this spirit of the unexpected that some of Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s most forward-thinking and cutting-edge galleries have collaborated to present Fountain Miami. The exhibition will make its mark in a massive 10,000 square foot warehouse at 2841 NW 2nd Avenue in the Wynwood Gallery District, in close proximity to other venues. Fountain Art Fair will run from December 6 – 9, 2007. Continue reading

SVEN CV Now Public

retpet3.jpgSVEN CV – the computer vision software used for SVEN – is now available to the public. The features and interface were designed specifically for the SVEN – Surveillance Video Entertainment Network project, so the interface isn’t what you might expect from user-friendly, general purpose software. However, we hope it can be useful for other public space projects, as it is specifically designed to track people in uncontrolled public settings, as opposed to a gallery or stage where lighting, background, clothing, etc., can be controlled.

Digital Decay

digitaldecay.jpg

This quote is taken from Douglas Davis’ essay, “The Work of Art in the Age of Digital Reproduction,” which argues (in part) that unlike analogue signals, which are like waves crashing upon a beach and losing clarity with every ebb of the tide, digital bits “can be endlessly reproduced, without degradation, always the same, always perfect.” Continue reading

Command Lines: Aesthetics and Technique in Interactive Fiction and New Media

douglass.jpgAbstract: “The Interactive Fiction (IF) genre describes text-based narrative experiences in which a person interacts with a computer simulation by typing text phrases (usually commands in the imperative mood) and reading software-generated text responses (usually statements in the second person present tense). Re-examining historical and contemporary IF illuminates the larger fields of electronic literature and game studies. Intertwined aesthetic and technical developments in IF from 1977 to the present are analyzed in terms of language (person, tense, and mood), narrative theory (Iser’s gaps, the fabula / sjuzet distinction), game studies / ludology (player apprehension of rules, evaluation of strategic advancement), and filmic representation (subjective POV, time-loops). Continue reading

NOW [es Barcelona]

now.jpgNOW 2008 :: November 29 – December 1, 2007 :: Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB), Montalegre, 5. 08001 Barcelona, Spain.

This fourth edition of NOW explores three dimensions of the new urban condition: the conquest of the radio-electric space, the recovery of the public space and the city as an ecological challenge. Imminent changes in the way digital society is managed, resistance to the depoliticised city and the challenge of sustainable urban development are three interconnected processes that require greater knowledge, creativity and commitment from more and more citizens.

Ars Virtua Temporary Autonomous Zone [WoW]

av-guild-mail.jpgArs Virtua artist Thomas Asmuth is spearheading the creation of a Temporary Autonomous Zone (TAZ) in the online realm of World of Warcraft; December 3, 2007 at 7:00 pm PST (details below).

“Performance art in WoW is not really that big a stretch if you consider the social arena that is already in place in-world. We are interested in experiments of self governance that go beyond the Guild Structure. Is it possible to maintain a small mobile ‘geo’-political faction in WoW? As an experiment in governance … we are proposing Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZ). We will band together with a nod toward the feudal structure that WoW quotes so often. Can we hold our ‘fiefdom’? Can we protect it from poachers and those who wish not to align with our mobile zone of autonomy? Continue reading

Visualising Invisibility

biemann_panel9_web_1_0.jpgThe Arnolfini’s show Port City: On Mobility and Exchange deals with the conflicts between illegal migrants’ need to remain invisible and art’s necessity to reveal what is hidden.

“…Liam Gillick, in his blog relating to the Memorial to the Iraq War exhibition, also at the ICA earlier this year, pointed to the need for artists, in unacceptably dire political times, to ‘step outside their normal practice’ and make their objections known as citizens foremost. But to separate the responsibilities of creativity from those of citizens does a dangerous disservice to the potentials of art, forcing art to retreat into mere entertainment and severing its link with the world around it. Port City is an ideal case study through which to observe the relationship between the political concerns of artists and their artistic expression. Gillick does go on, nevertheless, to offer a useful function of art, as a marker and multiplier of differences and as ‘a perfect form for the revelation of paradox’…” From Visualising Invisibility by Jennifer Thatcher, Mute Magazine.

Butterfly Catching 2.0?

168.jpgMediaArtHistories is the first comprehensive survey text on the histories of technological art – a field of practice known broadly as (new) media. In part, the book originates from Refresh!, the first international conference on the histories of media, art, science and technology, which was held at the Banff New Media Institute, Canada, in 2005. I was fortunate enough to attend Refresh! as a poster presenter. My own presentation, a somewhat tongue-in-cheek affair, involved pinning acetate butterflies and typed sheets to my poster board and wafting a hand-held fan around. By doing this, I wanted to demonstrate how established art historical approaches diminish the essential dynamic of (media) art, as Jean Dubuffet has noted: Continue reading
