“The Last Pictures” by Trevor Paglen

The Last Pictures by Trevor Paglen — an ultra-archival disc of images capable of lasting in space for billions of years:

In 1963 NASA launched the first communications satellite “Syncom 2″ into a geosynchronous orbit over the Atlantic Ocean. Since then, humans have slowly and methodically added to this space-based communications infrastructure. Currently, more than 800 spacecraft in geosynchronous orbit form a man-made ring of satellites around Earth at an altitude of 36,000 kilometers. Most of these spacecraft powered down long ago, yet continue to float aimlessly around the planet. Geostationary satellites are so far from earth that their orbits never decay. Continue reading

“We Won’t Fly For Art: Media Art Ecologies” by Ruth Catlow

We Won’t Fly For Art: Media Art Ecologies by Ruth Catlow, Culture Machine Vol 13: Paying Attention (2012):

“The insights of American anarchist ecologist Murray Bookchin into environmental crisis hinge on a social conception of ecology that problematises the role of domination in culture. His ideas are becoming increasingly relevant to those working with digital technologies in the post-industrial information age, as big business daily develops new tools and techniques to exploit our sociality across high-speed networks (digital and physical). According to Bookchin, our fragile ecological state is bound up with a social pathology. Continue reading

Thinking through the Body: Essays in Somaesthetics

Thinking through the Body: Essays in Somaesthetics by Richard Shusterman, Florida Atlantic University:

This book provides a richly rewarding vision of the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of somaesthetics. Composed of fourteen wide-ranging but finely integrated essays by Richard Shusterman, the originator of the field, Thinking through the Body explains the philosophical foundations of somaesthetics and applies its insights to central issues in ethics, education, cultural politics, consciousness studies, sexuality, and the arts. Integrating Western philosophy, cognitive science, and somatic methodologies with classical Asian theories of body, mind, and action, these essays probe the nature of somatic existence and the role of body consciousness in knowledge, memory, and behavior.

Expanded Life Definition: Michał Brzeziński [pl Gliwice]

Expanded Life Definition: Michał Brzeziński :: October 5 - November 5, 2012 :: Czytelnia Sztuki, Willa Caro, ul. Dolnych Wałów 8a, 44-100 Gliwice, Poland.

The exhibition touches the problem of transspecies communication and the changing definition of life in the context of information systems, and the changing definition of a human kind transformed by the recent technology from biotechnology, and the increasing prevalence of transgenic organisms and various human body integration with computerized machines — from various simple devices (smartphone) subject to the convergence of extended brain functions such as memory, numeracy, to the knowledge of foreign languages, or medical grounds, up to the senses such as sight, hearing (monitoring, interception) to advanced nanotechnology equipment to support the immune system, and performing various operations for the army (Smartdust).

Reblogged The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google”

The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google” by Owen Mundy, Rhizome.org:

As part of this year’s Transmediale festival in Berlin, media artist Johannes P. Osterhoff organized an online collaborative performance of search engine queries, simply titled, “Google.” For one week, Osterhof convinced myself and 36 other participants to add a unique search method to our default web browsers so that everything we “googled” — from the personal to the mundane — became instantly visible online at google-performance.org.
