The Immediated Now: Network Culture and the Poetics of Reality

networked.jpgRead | Write The Immediated Now: Network Culture and the Poetics of Reality by Kazys Varnelis — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: Network culture is not limited to digital technology or to the Internet but rather is a broad sociocultural shift. Under network culture both art and everyday life take mediation as a given. Life becomes performance, taking place in a culture of exposure in exchange for self-affirming feedback from the net. This chapter explores the role of this poetics of the real in cultural production from YouTube to the gallery. The new poetics of reality is not the traditional realism. Earlier codes are replaced by immediacy, self-exposure, performance, and remix.

Lifetracing: The Traces of a Networked Life

networked.jpgRead | Write Lifetracing: The Traces of a Networked Life by Anne Helmond — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: This chapter deals with the change of identity on the web as a result of the assemblage of social software platforms, engines and users. It can be stated that major platforms for presenting the self online have developed over time: the homepage, the blog, the social networking profile and the lifestream. They each have their own specific way for presenting the self online. The advent of the search engine has had a major impact on both the construction and the presentation of the online identity.

Storage in Collaborative Networked Art

networked.jpgRead | Write Storage in Collaborative Networked Art by Jason Freeman — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: This chapter explores the role of storage in media art and, more specifically, its role in collaborative creativity within the field of networked music. Through a series of paired analyses of works that differentially emphasize transmission and storage or which employ different approaches to storage, the chapter discusses different opportunities, challenges, and issues related to storage in collaborative, networked art. Music by the Rova Saxophone Quartet and by Nick Collins frames a discussion of composition and improvisation; two works by The Hub initiate an analysis of the influence of technology on network design and on collaborative models of shared material and shared control; broadcast works by Max Neuhaus introduce the concept of active storage systems; the online sites WebDrum and Jamglue raise questions about network latency and the persistency of storage; and Bicycle Built for 2,000 and Graph Theory manipulate the level of awareness of storage mechanisms by various participants.

Data Undermining: The Work of Networked Art in an Age of Imperceptibility

networked.jpgRead | Write Data Undermining: The Work of Networked Art in an Age of Imperceptibility by Anna Munster — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: The large quantities of data now being generated via networked communications are also being managed, regulated and interpreted into patterns that are comprehensible to humans. The management of data is undertaken by sophisticated sampling, tracking and automated techniques and the results of these are frequently sequestered to become the property of corporations and institutions such as Google or the US military. Even when data flows ‘freely’ through the net, the operations of search engines, databases, digests and feeds such as RSS increasingly makes this manipulation of data invisible. Techniques such as aggregation smooth out the differentials of data’s constitution and present us instead with a flattened landscape of information. The sources, processes and contexts, which make information meaningful, are rendered imperceptible. Continue reading

Art in the Age of Dataflow: Narrative, Authorship, and Indeterminacy

networked.jpgRead | Write Art in the Age of Dataflow: Narrative, Authorship, and Indeterminacy by Patrick Lichty — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: How to write a chapter that ostensibly has no end? Who is the author when anyone can edit? Does dialogue occur on listerves and blogs? How do we make meaning of trends? I look at the emergence of nonlinear narrative (1940 – 2006), using the mathematical terms scalar, vector and flow as conceptual or visual metaphors that describe structure, transmission, and social patterns. Scalar examines the set, non-linear narratives of hypermedia and the indeterminate narratives of Wikis; vector, the dialogic narratives of listserves and blogs; and artistic visualizations that seek to reveal patterns as flows of information in networked cultures increase.

Live Stage: Strip, split, join, print [us NYC]

Strip, split, join, print: Digital Writing with Python Final Performance :: August 5, 2009; 7:00 - 8:30 pm :: Interactive Telecommunication Program, New York University, 721 Broadway, 4th floor, Room 447, New York City.

Over the course of the Summer semester, seven NYU students have composed, mangled, generated and remixed text with their new programming language of choice: Python. Student projects under development include programs to generate Fibonacci creation myths, stochastic Walt Whitman madlibs, e.e. cummings/Twitter mashups, and new poetic forms based on Gone With The Wind.

After an intense semester, these students gather for one night only to perform their textual creations. All are welcome to this evening of experimental performances of digital writing! Continue reading

Reblogged Florian Cramer’s Floppy Films

Floppy Films, The Netherlands, 2009: Disappeared from our desktops first because of cd-rom burners and then (after regretting losing the floppy’s quick data portability) because of USB keys, the floppy disk is still supported by major OSs, but is often found sleeping in quantities in boxes as old relics. The floppy disk (3.5″) has been the medium of choice for Florian Cramer’s brilliant artwork series (Floppy Films). He has started to play with video editing software and compression codecs in order to make short videos that fit this old medium’s capacity. nkdlunch.mp4 is a film cut-up of the cut-up of David Cronenberg’s film adaption of William Burroughs’ cut-up novel.
