Live Stage: Semiconductor [uk Brighton]

Lighthouse launches a Monthly Talks Programme with Semiconductor :: July 1, 2010; 7:00 pm :: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington St, Brighton BN1 4AJ, UK.

Talks will be held on the first Thursday of each month, and will feature key national and international figures within moving image and digital art. We are thrilled that the inaugural monthly talk will be given by filmmakers, Semiconductor. Semiconductor are Brighton-based artists and filmmakers, Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt.

For over a decade Semiconductor have worked with video, sound and digital animation to explore our relationship to scientific knowledge.

Space RE:solutions [at Vienna]

Space RE:solutions: Intervention and Research in Visual Culture — International Conference :: October 21-23, 2010 :: Vienna University of Technology, Karlsplatz 13, 1040 Vienna, Austria :: Call for Papers — Deadline: August 1, 2010.

What has emerged over the last decade as one of the most significant aspects of work in Visual Culture is a persistent desire for both a critical sensitivity toward its theoretical underpinnings and an experimental elasticity in its methodological approaches. This drive is giving rise to a plethora of new investigative practices and multi-directional engagements, particularly vis-à-vis matters of geopolitical urgency and their cultural and spatial implications.

Marking ten years of Visual Culture studies at Vienna University of Technology, this conference aims to bring together a diverse group of researchers and practitioners interested in the dynamics between emergent spatial phenomena and new modes of theoretical inquiry. Continue reading

Sound, Listening and Place: Sonic Ecology

Organised Sound: An International Journal of Music and TechnologySound, Listening and Place, Volume 16, Number 3 :: Date of Publication: December 2011:: Publishers: Cambridge University Press :: Issue co-ordinator: Katharine Norman (katharine.norman [at] :: Call for Submissions — Deadline: March 1, 2011.

In his provocative book, Ecology without Nature: Rethinking Environmental Aesthetics, literary ecologist Timothy Morton suggests that much ecocritical nature writing makes the same Romantic assumptions it seeks to critique. He posits that a properly ecological view of the environment must challenge aestheticised views of nature, and be immersed rather than observational. How can, and does, sound-based music ‘rethink’ environmental aesthetics? How can sound-based music, and writing on it, contribute to the ecocritical debate? Continue reading

Spill >> Forward: Call For Proposals

The disaster in the Gulf of Mexico frames the exhibition, Spill >> Forward, presented by Transnational Temps and hosted by MediaNoche :: Call For Proposals — Deadline: July 20, 2010.

Responding to what has been called the United States’ worst ever environmental crisis, the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico frames this forward-looking group exhibition. Following on the heels of a decidedly unsuccessful round of climate negotiations in Copenhagen, the months of news coverage of oil gushing into the Gulf have provoked widespread unease with business as usual. As BP desperately attempts to recover both the oil and its public image, artists and designers from around the world are wrestling with the question of sustainability in the aftermath of these shocking events.

The Leak in Your Home Town

the leak in your home town — a work in progress by Mark Skwarek and Joseph Hocking — is an iPhone app that lets users see the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill whenever they see a BP logo. A user simply launches the app and aims their iPhone’s camera at the nearest BP logo. What the user sees is one of the broken BP pipes coming out of the BP logo, and out of the pipe comes the oil, pluming upward.

This work mixes computer generated 3d graphics with the iPhone’s video camera to create an augmented reality. The user is able to see the computer generated 3d objects at specific locations in the real world. The 3d graphics create the broken BP pipe which comes out of the BP logo.

A important component of the project is that it uses BP’s corporate logo as a marker, to orient the computer-generated 3-D graphics. Basically turning their own logo against them. This re-purposing of corporate icons will offer future artists and activists a powerful means of expression which will be easily accessible to the masses and at the same time will be safe and nondestructive.

Live Stage: The Invisible City [nl Rotterdam + online]

Test_Lab: The Invisible City :: July 8, 2010; 8:00 – 11:00 pm :: V_2, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam + and streamed live.

Artists, architects, and designers play an important role in revealing “invisible” aspects of cities, often providing new insights into how our cities function and develop. To rethink the “invisible city” under the pressure of rapid urbanization, this edition of Test_Lab will feature a selection of freshly graduated artists, architects, and designers from European art and design academies whose projects explore the invisible aspects of our contemporary urban environments. The selected projects range from artistic representations of invisible cities, to simulations of urban economy and concrete scenarios for urban production and energy development. As it is custom to the Test_Lab event series, the audience will form the critical test panel for the demonstrated works and will be invited to examine each graduation project ‘hands-on’.

Shadow & Light [se Lövestad]

Shadow & Light (Marek Walczak, Lars Eklöw, Johanna Kindvall, Anna-Maria Eklöw) :: July 10-31, 2010 :: Kulturmöllan, Södergatan 2, S-275 75 Lövestad, Sweden.

Shadow & Light is a 4-week set of installations, performances and workshops on the theme of shadows and light. Pieces will include projection, shadow-scapes, electronics, light drawings, film-patterns, slides… weaving the structure of a beautiful old mill into a light diorama of spaces.

The art of the ephemeral, shadows, light, has been a fascination of modern art, whether in the films of Ingmar Bergman or Moholy-Nagy’s Light Space Modulator (1920-30). More… The artwork as a process, of evolving and layering meanings over time to create a connection with a place, forms a contextual relationship that situates a work of art. Continue reading

[iDC] Education Should Be Inefficient

“I would say for both of us though, unschooling has been more about slowness, about paying attention, immersing ourselves bizarre art projects, volunteering, staring off into space, talking to friends, and reading books, reading books, reading books. We sometimes learned quickly, when motivated or excited to master some skill, but typically we learned at our own pace, which was often slow (sometimes so slow it looked as though we were doing nothing at all) and with lots of detours.”

“I know we’re excited about learning networks and social media and peer this and that. But maybe the most radical thing a teacher can do is tell students to be alone with an idea.” Continue reading
