VIDA 13.0: Art & Artificial Life International Competition

Fundación Telefónica announces the VIDA 13.0 Art & Artificial Life International Competition :: Call for Entries — Deadline: November 7, 2010.

At a time when the notion of life is once again located in an uncertain domain, a wide range of artistic initiatives come together to illustrate and investigate this phenomenon; they examine the impact on the collective conscience and the way it is manifested in cultural, technological and social thought.

Over the last decade, in the same formal space, VIDA has been bringing together inter-disciplinary projects that respond to this situation. By means of formal strategies that defy the boundaries between existing practices, these projects offer new ways of reflecting on what we understand by life and artificial life. Continue reading

AC Institute: Narrative | Identity [us NYC]

Narrative | Identity — curated by Nicole Bebout and Sonja Hofstetter :: February 3 – March 12, 2011 :: AC Institute, 547 West 27th Street, New York :: Open Call for Group Exhibition — Deadline: September 12, 2010.

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” Oscar Wilde

As a means of grappling with the flux of identity, narratives are a necessary part of individual and social constructs. Whether internal or external, narratives define how we see ourselves and others.

  • Which facts construct our identities?
  • Do we have a variety of identities and what makes us change them?
  • Is the identity we display in public different than our private one? Continue reading

The Status Project: Data-Mining Our Identities

The Status Project: Data-Mining Our Identities — An Interview with Heath Bunting - Part 1: In this two part interview, Marc Garrett discusses with Heath Bunting his current work within two distinctive areas of digital culture and sport-art starting with The Status Project, which studies the construction of our ‘official identities’ and creates what Bunting describes as “…an expert system for identity mutation”.

His research explores how information supplied by the public in their interaction with organisations and institutions is logged. The project draws on his direct encounters with specific database collection processes and the information he was obliged to supply in his life as a public citizen, in order to access specific services; also on data collected from the Internet and from information found on governmental databases.

Brody Condon’s “LevelFive” [us California]

LevelFive: Brody CondonCall for Participation :: September 3-5, 2010 @ Hammer Museum of Art in Los Angeles on (50 spots) :: September 16-18, 2010 @ San Jose Convention Center during the Zero1 Biennial (75 spots).

LevelFive is a live role-playing event focused on critically exploring self actualization seminars from the 1970’s. The LevelFive performance will loosely follow the structure of early Large Group Awareness Training sessions like Erhard Seminars Training, but it is not a re-enactment. The open-ended live role-playing environment provides a space in which players are free to explore self actualization issues with varying degrees of personal intensity, but via an alibi or fabricated character.

TechnoCRAFT [us San Francisco]

TechnoCRAFT: Hackers, Modders, Fabbers, Tweakers and Design in the Age of Individuality — Curated by Yves Béhar :: July 10 – October 3, 2010 :: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission St., San Francisco, CA.

The history of craft and design began with individuals making what they could not afford to buy, which created a deep and personal connection between owner and object. With the Industrial Revolution, the tradition of craft mostly disappeared as people became enamored with the abundance and affordability of mass-produced, high-quality goods. The rise of mass-production and mass-consumerism undeniably elevated the average person’s quality of life. However, the cultural sameness that materialized, combined with the loss of individual connection to objects, left many feeling dissatisfied. As a result, they took matters into their own hands.

Cinemaniac 2010: The InVisible MAFAF [hr Pula]

MMC LUKA presents Cinemaniac 2010: The InVisible MAFAF — Curated by Branka Bencic :: July 18 - August 6, 2010 :: Gallery Anex and Gallery Luka (MMC LUKA), Istarska 30, 52100 Pula, Croatia.

Cinemaniac - established in 2002 as the support programme at the Pula Film Festival in order to present innovative events in art and cinema, thus creating a new social space to introduce recent achievements in the fields of experimental video and filmmaking, and multimedia installations. Within such practices, contemporary art reveals itself as both a kind of parallel history and a signpost to possible futures for avantgarde and experimental filmmaking – as well as a space where the depths of possibility are plumbed, borders argued, and the language of film image – and, crucially, new cinema forms – investigated.
