Turbulence Commission: “iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project)”

Turbulence Commission: iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) by Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Tim Perkis:

iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) is a social media mashup that uses the dynamic input of users to continuously rewrite a sonnet of William Shakespeare. The user phonetically rhymes a word or short phrase, which is added to the database of variations available to other users. For instance unhappily forsworn can be rhymed as so snappily untorn. Each time the page is loaded, a different selection of user-defined substitutions is used. A transposed midi version of “Lachrimae” or “Seven Tears,” by John Dowland (1563-1626), can be heard as well, with “perturbations” that increase as the sonnet text is modified. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “A More Subtle Perplex” by Ben Dean

Turbulence Commission: A More Subtle Perplex by Ben Dean [This is an open source project: you can contribute to the Perplex here]:

A More Subtle Perplex is an experiment in quasi-linguistic formalism, in gibberish. Borrowing and inverting techniques from computer science and analytic linguistics, it blindly strives to produce the outer appearance of language — to be all form and no content. The Perplex produces synthetic languages, or at least their syntactic forms, by writing letters to you. The production of the text and the production of a given language are interdependent.

Turbulence Commission: “[ openspace ] wilderness” by Andrew Lyman

Turbulence Commission: [ openspace ] wilderness by Andrew Lyman:

[ openspace ] wilderness is a virtual nature preserve for a deserted section of internet. It is inhabited by more than 6,000 blogs that have been silent for 6 or more years. Whereas abandoned neighborhoods of cities — like Detroit — are undergoing rewilding (to restore and protect natural processes), what manner of new life is possible for vacated internet spaces? Visitors to [ openspace ] wilderness are invited to tag and explore its contents, and engage with the park’s active population of predators and foragers. [ openspace ] wilderness is a finite and consumable space: it may be mapped and preserved, or overrun and overgrazed depending on the actions of its visitors. Read a review. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “From the Valley of the Deer” by Jillian McDonald

Turbulence Commission: From the Valley of the Deer by Jillian McDonald [For mobile devices]: From the Valley of the Deer is an augmented reality artwork based on Valley of the Deer, a video installation produced in Scotland in 2013. In each city where the installation is exhibited, local GPS coordinates will be haunted by characters and scenes from the video, discoverable on walking tours near the exhibition site. These apparitions may also be stumbled upon as ‘Points of Interest’ by passersby, the locations visited long after by spirits of a distant valley.

From the Valley of the Deer is a 2013 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence website. It was funded by the Jerome Foundation, now celebrating 50 years of the creative spirit of emerging artists. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “Psychographics” by Dane Watkins

Turbulence Commission: Psychographics: Consumer Survey by Dane Watkins: Corporations use state of the art technology to examine every aspect of your lifestyle and generate a unique psychological and demographic consumer profile. There are three archetypes of consumerism: “Basic Consumer — Merchandiser”; “Average Consumer — Passive Spectator”; and “Advanced Consumer — Networker”. “Psychographics” is an online survey that helps you to evaluate your consumer status. Take the survey and discover your archetype!

Psychographics: Consumer Survey is a 2014 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence website. It was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. Continue reading

“Constellations Over Playas” by Joseph Moore and Stephanie Vella

Turbulence Commission: Constellations Over Playas by Joseph Moore and Stephanie Vella:

Since 2003 the United States has enacted simulated terrorist attacks against the abandoned mining town, Playas, New Mexico. Constellations Over Playas proposes that we look at this place as an imaginary stage for the dramatization and repetition of collective traumas, a stage where the recreation of the past is used to control the future. Constellations generates iterations of associative networks pulled from the source material the artists have accumulated on their journeys through the area, providing an ephemeral travelogue through the colonial, material, military, imaginary, and cinematic trails that intersect with their investigations of Playas.

Turbulence Spotlight: “MUPS” by Jhave

Turbulence Spotlight: MUPS by Jhave:

MUPS (MashUPs) is an online sonic mashup engine specifically designed to allow spoken-word poetry mp3s to interweave simultaneously as if a group of performers were speaking together. MUPS has been seeded with MUPS 1260 audio poems from the PennSound archives; it can play up to 32 streams simultaneously. In spite of the playful tone of the introduction, MUPS is intended as a digital augmentation in the study of prosody. As computational analysis advances it is feasible to foresee cultural heritage archives such as PennSound operating as sites where digital tools permit innovative explorations into the evolution of poetics.

“Slide Stories” by Annette Weintraub

Turbulence Spotlight: Slide Stories by Annette Weintraub [For desktop, iPad or iPhone]:

Slide Stories is a moving mediation through a City in which physical space collapses into surface incident and erodes the boundaries of real and simulated space. As Henri Lefebvre writes, “the space of a (social) order is hidden in the order of space.”

ANNETTE WEINTRAUB works with architecture as visual language and the symbolism of space. She is interested in the poetics of space and focuses upon the changing urban landscape, the disappearance of public space, and she examines how our sense of place shapes emotion and action. Slide Stories is a continuation of her work embedding narrative in urban space.

Remix a mediální produkce

networked.jpgRemix and the Rouelles of Media Production — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art) — has been translated into Czechoslovakian by Pavla Stejskalová: Remix a mediální produkce:

Obliba remixování stoupá

Bylo by těžké představit si umění bez remixování. Naše nejstarší kulturní záznamy obsahují bezpočet příkladů, ve kterých se dochované materiály využily pro tvorbu nových děl. Irští vypravěči neboli “Seanchai” se se svými posluchači dělili o mytické příběhy, jež různě přizpůsobovali a měnili podle tamějšího publika. Klasický starověk nabízí řadu obměněných mýtů a hrdinů a tato tradice pokračuje po celou dobu historie kanonizované západní kultury. Samotný Louis Dudek vyzdvihoval “Nalezený úvod” Johna Roberta Colomba, ze kterého citujeme: “Jestliže A si myslí, že je lepším básníkem než B, zastavme jeho povýšené naznačování. Continue reading

“In Production (A Narrative Inquiry on Interactive Art)” by Nathaniel Stern

networked.jpgRead | Write In Production (A Narrative Inquiry on Interactive Art) by Nathaniel Stern — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

In Production (A Narrative Inquiry on Interactive Art) is a free, digital companion chapter to Interactive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance (2013, an Arts Future Book with Gylphi Press).

“In the book, I argue that interactive art suspends and amplifies the ways in which we experience embodiment as per-formed, relational, and emergent. I provide many in-depth case studies of contemporary artworks that develop a practice of embodied philosophy, setting a stage to explore how we inter-act and relate with the world. I offer a critical framework for analyzing interactive artworks and what’s at stake in our encounters with them, which can be applied to a wide range of complex and emerging art forms.
