“The Salt Satyagraha” by Natasha Chuk

“Feurbach’s The Essence of Christianity (1843) discusses the importance we make of images and illusions, and that we prefer “the image to the thing, the copy to the original, the representation to the reality, appearance to being”. Second Life, the 3-D online ecosystem that is created and maintained by those who virtually inhabit it, is arguably a testament of our culture’s embrace of this level of fantasy and denial of the Real, which Ludwig Feurbach had presciently observed shortly after the invention of the camera.

However, bringing to light this realization isn’t to suggest that Second Life doesn’t have its own appeal to those of us who don’t barter, exchange, purchase, and develop friendships within its virtual walls. Continue reading

Live Stage: Dorkbot SoCal 30 [us Los Angeles]

Dorkbot SoCal 30 :: July 26, 2008; 1:00 pm :: Machine Project, 1200 D North Alvarado Street, Los Angeles, CA.

Steven Gentner will be speaking about a robot project built using RoboRealm, a powerful free computer vision based application for use in machine vision, image analysis, and image processing systems.

Gil Kuno’s sonic artworks displace natural activity from its context, revealing an otherwise hidden level of metaphorical absurdity within the ordinary patterns present before our eyes.

Brett Doar is a “paratechnologist” who creates “idiosyncratic electro-mechanical creatures out of inappropriate materials.”

The Discreet Charm of Technology: Arts in Spain

The Discreet Charm of Technology: Arts in Spain :: until August 24, 2008 @ Museo Extremeño e Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporáneo, Spain:: September 26, 2008 – February 15, 2009 @ ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Germany.

This exhibition presents for the first time, both in Spain and abroad, a representative selection of over sixty artists and more than one hundred artworks that, by means of its thematic curatorial concept, will make it possible to retrace the principal aspects of production in art, science and technology that have been carried out in Spain from the earliest manifestations to the present day. In it, the 13th century is linked to the 21st through a modular approach that focuses on five key themes representative of the artistic condition: the formal code; the visual code; the sensory and space-time code; the body and the identity; and the construction of reality.

Interaction, Interactivity, Interactive Art [at Linz]

Interaction, Interactivity, Interactive Art – A buzzword of new media under scrutiny :: September 4, 2008 :: Part of Ars Electronica – A New Cultural Economy, Linz, Austria :: Organized by Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research.

Interaction: The relation between two or more relatively independent things or systems of change which advance, hinder, limit, or otherwise affect one another – (Dictionary of Philosophy and Psychology, 1901) Interactivity has become virtually a magic word for the promotion of new media and the media arts alike. The term refers not only to a certain technology, it also stands for social concepts and visions ranging from grassroots democracy all the way to consumer freedom. This imbues the term with its broad-ranging impact, but also contributes to its dilution. Continue reading

Reblogged 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover

[Image; Seul Bi and the “troop soup” (pude chige)] 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover, Or, let’s find a completely new art criticism by Brian Holmes – For most of the twentieth century, art was judged with respect to the previously existing state of the medium. What mattered was the kind of rupture it made, the unexpected formal or semiotic elements that it brought into play, the way it displaced the conventions of the genre or the tradition. The prize at the end of the evaluative process was a different sense of what art could be, a new realm of possibility for the aesthetic. Let’s take it as axiomatic that all that has changed, definitively. Continue reading

[Synapse elist] Participation Cartography: re-defining performance art and cartography

[Image: Christian Nold’s Biomapping] ” … Over the last three years or so I have investigating practices in which participants perform actions that can be framed as cartographic and that are carried out according to a framework provided by the artist or group of artists. I myself produced such a work in 2003 in my homeland, Colombia. My PhD research is almost done and in what follows I just want to share with you a summary of my ideas in the hope that you comment on them and find them useful.

I term this artistic practice Participation Cartography. This term expands previous notions such as psychogeography, map-art (Wood), collaborative mapping projects (Alice Sant), para-cartography (John Krygier), and others. The defining feature of this practice is that it enables participants to position themselves in relation to a given lived space. Continue reading
