Digimag 47

Digimag 47 / September 2009:

‘…When I lived in Holland I tried to make a medialab. I find the idea of a medialab connected to a fixed place is a bit archaic, a bit dated. Personally, I don’t want to criticise other forms of practice in medialabs, but I’m very interested in transitory situations. I’m interested in creating multi-use areas that are quick and temporarily autonomous. In creating a transitory situation like ‘let’s do something quick, in on week’, you must not worry about the problem of being continuously eco-friendly or about long-term issues. Continue reading

[iDC] MTurk project – introduction

Francesco Gagliardi wrote:

I’ve been on the list for a while, but I don’t think I ever introduced myself. I work in performance and occasionally film and video, and write about performance history. Trebor asked me to introduce to the list the work I will be presenting at the Digital Labor conference in November. I can’t say too much about it yet since it is still developing, but here are the basics.

The piece will be based on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. I was struck in learning – through this list I believe – that, according to a recent survey, a good number of (western) MTurk workers engage with the tasks crowdsourced through the service in order to kill time and have fun, rather than simply to earn money.

[Yasmin] Roger Malina on Collective Genius

[Image: Radical Software, Volume I, Number 1 — The Alternate Television Movement, Spring 1970] Murat,

I found interesting your IMECE connection and checked out the interesting web site for the event in Turkey this October.

Furthermore, it foregrounds certain concepts naturally available in ‘imece’ practice such as solidarity, collaboration, experience sharing, common production, interaction and common use of public places in terms of their contribution to development of creativity.

I think you make a good point about scale differences between collaborations, which usually involve smaller number of people, and collectives which can provide shared resources and infrastructure for much larger communities of practice. Continue reading

“Jenniches’ webcam works depend on the availability of generic user-controlled Internet cameras and are constructed over a long period of time — time spent watching the selected scenario, remotely — life-time spent observing the world. Thousands of images are made during a methodological process of deep-looking through this mediated network eye. The extended seeing and repetitive digital operations on the gathered images act to frame a meditative daily routine. Continue reading
