Review of Net Art in Colombia …

The exhibition Net Art in Colombia: It’s Ugly and Doesn’t Like the Cursor curated by Juan Devis consists of online projects developed by Colombian artists who approach the Internet as a medium worthy of aesthetic exploration, as well as a tool of dissemination. While some members of online new media communities in different parts of the world might consider the term “net art” historically and geographically specific, as it becomes obvious in this exhibition, the term is still at play in online culture with diverse interests, and it need not be considered part of the past. Devis contextualizes the exhibit as an expanding discourse driven by conceptual preoccupations closely tied to political interests…” Continue reading Review of Net Art in Colombia: It’s Ugly and Doesn’t like the Cursor by Eduardo Navas, newmediaFIX.

Reblogged Software Studies: A Lexicon

Software Studies: A Lexicon, edited by Matthew Fuller – Some years ago, Lev Manovich called for “software studies” to be established as an interdisciplinary field capable of re-thinking programmable media at the interface of cultural theory and computer science. Conceived partly against so-called speculative accounts of virtual reality and cyber-identities, this suggested re-orientation aimed for a denser materiality by foregrounding the technical composition of digital systems. Here, engineering documents were as likely a source of inspiration as Gilles Deleuze or Marshall McLuhan, resulting in a ‘material turn’ constituted by highly engaging work such as Alex Galloway’s protocological network theory or the more recent forensic hard drive analysis of Matthew Kirschenbaum.

Live Stage: Eco-Media Open Day [uk Southend-on-Sea]

As part of Metal’s Village Green, The MediaShed presents The Eco-Media Open Day featuring: The Internet vs. Pigeons Race; Human Telephone Lines; A Requiem for Cod; an Olympics of Lobbing, Shouting and Whistling :: September 27, 2008; 12 – 4 pm :: Chalkwell Park, Chalkwell Avenue, Southend-on-Sea.

An afternoon of fun experiments to see how we can combine “natural media” with “man made media”. We will be linking together ecology, human bodies and other gadgets to devise ingenious methods of communication inspired by natures own systems of signals, warnings and imprints. Taking inspiration from early media like shouting, carrier pigeons, throwing and the message-in-a-bottle, we will try to turn the ecology of Chalkwell Park into a living switchboard!

Arts, Inc: The Corporate Control of Culture

Multinational Monitor: You argue that expanded copyright protection is harming cultural production and expressive life. Why?

Bill Ivey: […] To me, copyright has become too long and too wide … For example, back in the fall of 2004, a federal court decided that even a tiny amount of musical material couldn’t be used in a new work without securing a license from the original copyright owner. The specifics of the case involved rap and hip-hop recordings sampling elements of earlier performances. But the implications are very broad, affecting any artist involved in what would be called collage art-making, whether clipping images out of magazines to make a new work of art, or assembling old film clips into a new documentary.

The Morning Line [es Seville]

The Morning Line by Matthew Ritchie with Aranda\Lasch and Arup AGU :: October 3, 2008 – January 11, 2009 :: Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo at the 3rd Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Sevilla (Biacs) curated by Peter Weibel with co-curators Marie-Ange Brayer and Wonil Rhee.

The Morning Line is a groundbreaking architectural project, designated by Ritchie as a porous “anti-pavilion”, both ruin and monument, a drawing in and of space, an open cellular structure. To devise an architectural language where geometry and artistic expression are intrinsically united, the New York based architectural duo Aranda\Lasch and specialists from Arup AGU designed a construction element called “the bit” whose shape is derived from a truncated tetrahydron. The bit can be reconfigured in to multiple architectural forms, scaled up and down within fractal cycles to any imaginable size, potentially even to the size of the universe. Continue reading
