Live Stage: ElasticMapping [nl Amsterdam]

ElasticMapping: A lecture-performance by Esther Polak :: October 6, 2009; 8:30 pm :: Netherlands Media Art Institute, keizersgracht 264, 1016 EV Amsterdam, Netherlands :: RSVP: info [at]

Simulated Certainty [es Barcelona]

New Frontiers of Science, Art and Thought Meeting: Simulated Certainty :: September 30 – October 2, 2009 :: Barcelona, Spain.

The conference Simulated Certainty explores the threshold between reality and imagination. Where does the scientific hypothesis start? Where does the confirmation of the theory begin?

Society of the Query Conference [nl Amsterdam]

Society of the Query Conference :: November 13 – 14, 2009 :: Trouw Amsterdam.

In the information society the current reality is an increasing dependence on technological resources to create order and to find meaning in a gigantic quantity of online data.

Tuvalu Visualization Project

Tuvalu Visualization Project is an art project visualizing information of Tuvalu on Google Earth. This project has been executed as a joint research of NPO Tuvalu Overview and Hidenori Watanave Laboratory @ Tokyo Metropolitan University from September 2008.

chart.jpgThe 25th Annual CHArt Conference: Object and Identity in the Digital Age :: November 12-13, 2009 :: Birkbeck, University of London, Clore Lecture Theatre, Clore Management Centre, Torrington Square, London, WC1 7HX.

This year’s CHArt conference engages with the idea of object and identity in relation to art practice, production, consumption, representation and display. The conference will explore new notions of the identity of the artist, including those involving collaboration and anonymity; new conceptions and ontologies of the art object, as processual, virtual, or hybrid; new means of consumption and reception, whether in galleries and museums, in public spaces, or over networks of broadcast and narrowcast; and the challenges these transformations bring to the display of art and to its curation and access.
