Spatial Aesthetics: Art, Place and the Everyday

Institute for Network Cultures, Issue No.05: Spatial Aesthetics: Art, Place and the Everyday by Nikos Papastergiadi:

Spatial Aesthetics: Art, Place and the Everyday examines the most recent shifts in contemporary art practice. By working with artists and closely observing the way in which they relate to urban space and engage other people, locally and globally, Nikos Papastergiadis provides a critical account of the transformation of art and public culture. He shows art has sought to democratise the big issues of our time and utilize new information technologies. While the concept of the everyday highlights the potential for transformation at the level of the individual, at the same time it has to be seen as a critique of broader structures; in this book Papastergiadis stresses the importance of situating a work within art history as well as relating it to its social context.

May 13-15, 2011 :: Massachusetts Institute for Technology :: Call for Papers – Deadline: March 4, 2011.

Technology and Social Participation

Intel’s Experience Insights Lab (XIL) seeks to commission 4 Essays @ $2,500 on the theme of Technology and Social Participation :: Call for Abstracts (1 paragraph stating general approach and literature(s) to be covered) :: Deadline: December 10, 2010.

Our goal in this activity is to gain an understanding of the intellectual landscape across several academic disciplines including (but not limited to) sociology, anthropology, science and technology studies, social movement studies, communications, media studies, and design studies. We are essentially looking for literature-reviews: we want to know about big ideas and major debates, central texts and case studies, and significant thinkers and practitioners who are shaping these discourses. We are also interested in hearing the author’s particular point of view, and will welcome provocative submissions that challenge our assumptions and suggest alternative areas of investigation.

Interactive Swarm Space – Software Kit for Real-Time Audio/Video

Interactive Swarm Space (ISS) explores the application of swarm simulations for the creation of interactive and immersive spaces. It aims to develop tools and strategies for establishing meaningful relationships between swarm behavior, interaction, perception, as well as musical and artistic expression. The project focuses on issues of multi-modal feedback and audio-visual spatialization which we deem central for a creative engagement with autonomous, self-organized and spatially distributed systems. This project is part of a research direction that explores the possibilities and challenges that artificial autonomous systems pose for artistic practice and performance.

We believe that in order to exploit the artistic potential of such systems, novel forms of interactivity, creativity, and aesthetics need to be found. Continue reading

Theory Beyond Codes: The Pirate Bay…

CTHEORY: Theory, Technology, Culture, VOL 33, NO 3; Editors: Arthur and Marilouise Kroker :: Theory Beyond Codes: The Pirate Bay: Countervailing Power and the Problem of State Organized Crime by Leon Tan:

Introduction: In the short space of a decade, the Internet based circulation of information in the form of media files has become highly controversial, giving rise to allegations of piracy and theft by a host of artists and media firms. This article constructs a case for online file-sharing or so-called ‘media piracy’ as a form of political-economic claims-making involving consumer populations, professional artists, media firms and governments in ongoing contention. File-sharing activities and the online social networks that sustain them are treated as ‘repertoires of contention’ to use a concept from Charles Tilly and Sidney Tarrow. Continue reading
