… Mobilities and (Co-)Construction of Identity

self-port-with-wife-and-models-14×14-1981.jpgNew technologies of the self, mobilities and (co-)construction of identity :: Edited by: Fred Dervin & Yasmine Abbas :: Call for Abstracts :: Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by March 15, 2008. Full chapters will be expected to be submitted by September 1, 2008.

The new interpersonal spaces created by web 2.0 and 3.0 technologies seem to correspond to the technologies of the self that Michel Foucault (1988) has addressed in his lectures at the Collège de France at the beginning of the 1980s. These new technologies enable the individual’s self to emerge publicly and to be worked upon with its “disciples”: be they companions in Second Life, readers (for example on a blog) or listeners (Podcasts).

Reblogged WINDscale

windscale.jpg Despite the increasing availability of megapixels and bandwidth, we have become used to the resolution and detail loss, often due to cheap and lossy image compression techniques. The most interesting content on the net is usually not the official crystal clear streamed video, but some unofficial or plainly pirated one, digitally stolen from other sources through non professional hardware and software combinations and then uploaded on content sharing websites and peer-to-peer networks.

WINDscale is an artwork by Rob Smith that visualizes wind speed in a picture. It uses an anemometer (a tool for measuring wind speed) placed on Jaywick Martello Tower on the Essex Coast (East of England). Continue reading

Grounded in the extensive Polish experimental film output of the 1970s, 1,2,3… Avant-Gardes will offer a selection of films mostly produced by Polish artists from that period, whilst including contemporary international artistic proposals that constitute a challenge for the interpretation of the history of experimental cinema.
