Sensing Place | Placing Sense [at Linz]

Sensing Place | Placing Sense :: September 3-4, 2011 :: afo architekturforum oberösterreich, Herbert-Bayer-Platz 1, Linz, Austria.

The mental image of the city has become more complex. Since mobile phones have become geo-social devices, location-based data is increasingly shaping the way we navigate, experience and define the urban environment. Media art practices have played an important role in shaping, investigating and problematizing this development. The Symposium and the exhibition will investigate the potential of experimental and artistic forms of inquiry for helping us making sense of the city, and discuss practices that create new public infrastructures and define new places.

ISEA Istanbul presents Unsitely Aesthetics: the Reconfiguring of Public Space in Electronic Art — Chair Per­son: Maria Mi­randa; Pre­sen­ters: Bran­don La­Belle, Dar­ren Tofts, Re­nate Ferro, Tim­o­thy Mur­ray :: Sep­tem­ber 17, 2011; 9:00 - 10:30 am :: Sa­banci Cen­ter Room 2, Sa­banci Cen­ter, Lev­ent.

This panel ex­plores the mul­ti­ple and di­verse ways artists are work­ing in pub­lic space within the con­text of net­work cul­ture where being in two places at once, or the su­per­im­pos­ti­tion of real and vir­tual space has be­come the com­mon ex­pe­ri­ence.

With the growth of the in­ter­net and mo­bile tele­phony across the globe we are wit­ness­ing new con­fig­u­ra­tions of pub­lic space and pub­lic cul­ture. Continue reading

ISEA Istanbul presents Public Art of the Sustainable City — Chair Per­sons: Eliz­a­beth Monoian, Robert Ferry; Pre­sen­ters: Pa­tri­cia Watts, Nacho Zamora, Glen Lowry :: Sep­tem­ber 20, 2011; 9:00 - 10:30 am :: Sa­banci Cen­ter Room 2, Sa­banci Cen­ter, Lev­ent.

This panel dis­cus­sion will ad­dress the con­tin­uum of pub­lic art, clean en­ergy prece­dents, and con­tem­po­rary tech­nolo­gies. Within this frame­work we will out­line and il­lus­trate the po­ten­tial that in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary teams and com­mu­ni­ties around the world have to ex­pand both the di­a­logue and ac­tual change. As we en­deavor to ex­tri­cate civ­i­liza­tion from fos­sil fuel de­pen­dence, the ex­is­ten­tial de­bate over the pur­pose of art de­serves re­newed at­ten­tion in the con­text of nat­ural ecol­ogy and human con­sump­tion.

The panel dis­cusses cat­e­gories of loca­tive, site-spe­cific media art and their im­pact on un­der­stand­ing the con­text of place. Mo­bile com­put­ing po­ten­tially en­ables var­i­ous forms of so­cial in­ter­ac­tion and has to be con­sid­ered in re­la­tion to con­cepts of em­bod­i­ment, the cre­ation of mean­ing, as well as in­di­vid­ual au­ton­omy and agency.

Live Stage: La Plissure du Texte [tr Istanbul]

This panel will un­der­take a close scrutiny of La Plis­sure du Texte, tak­ing into ac­count both its cre­ation in 1983 and its re-cre­ation in 2010, dis­cussing the work in its role as a land­mark of New Media Art His­tory as well as an art work which has shown the ca­pa­bil­ity of re­gen­er­at­ing it­self as an en­tirely novel man­i­fes­ta­tion based upon the con­cepts of dis­trib­uted au­thor­ship, tex­tual mo­bil­ity, emer­gent semi­o­sis, mul­ti­ple iden­tity, and par­tic­i­pa­tory poe­sis.

Live Stage: Content | Form | Im-material [at Vienna]

Content | Form | Im-material — Five Years of http://CONT3XT.NET/: Book Launch with an introduction by Tom Waibel :: September 15, 2011; 7:00 - 10:00 pm :: Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, Herrengasse 13, Vienna, Austria

Why is it still easier to get an entire museum collection on the Internet than to get a single work of Internet-based Art in a museum space? As with the nature of this question, both aspects have to be taken into account: the field of Internet-based Art with its characteristics and proponents, as well as the mechanisms that allow institutions to filter what the public at large understands to be art.

Heath Bunting and Annet Dekker in Conversation

Conversation between Heath Bunting and Annet Dekker:

“Identity is a construction and we as human beings made it into an entity that consists of something that can possess one or more natural persons and control one or more artificial persons”. Heath Bunting explains where his passion for systems and power structures comes from.

The world of an administrative content provider. About opening spaces, connecting layers and being mobile.

For those unfamiliar with Heath Bunting’s work, it is not immediately obvious what he intends by The System. Its pages, consisting of stark black-and-white spider diagrams, give the impression of an austere post-conceptual practice, but technocratic as this aesthetic may seem, it camouflages a more wayward disposition.’ — Colin Perry on the net artist’s new book “The System,” in Art Monthly, issue 334, March 2010.
