Performative Science

Call for Papers for Issue No. 1/2012 – Performative Science: Reconciliation of Science and Humanities or the End of Philosophy? Deadline: January 15, 2012.

Studia UBB. Philosophia proposes an international debate on performative aspects in scientific practices and methodology. Whilst there exists a discourse on performativity within social sciences and the humanities for quite some time it is rather new to discuss performative aspects within the „hard“ sciences like physics, too, with Andy Pickering’s Mangle of Practice being a seminal work in this context. In the latter work it has been argued that the concept of performativity can fruitfully be applied to action theoretical considerations in the experimental process. Using the notions of “context of discovery” and “context of justification” introduced by Hans Reichenbach, Pickering’s result might be accepted as an aspect within the context of discovery but incompatible with the context of justification.

“Dreaming of a Butterfly” by António Caramelo

Dreaming of a Butterfly by António Caramelo: “45 acrylic tubes are arranged within the display box. Each tube has a “mechanical” butterfly placed within and their movements are synchronised with the sound system — where microphones obtain real time sound of the surrounding area, and amplify the sounds to the internal subwoofers speakers to produce the necessary input to cause the aleatory movements of the butterflies. As the sound captured reach higher volume, the movement of the butterflies increase.

Each butterfly is attached inside to the acrylic tube by a filament that runs to the battery housing. There is a certain amount of realness to it, while it is understated up close (people can see the filament when the butterfly is at a standstill — or the sound volume is low), but from farther away the fleeting butterfly appears to be real and trying to find its escape!

Nathalie Miebach: Weather Scores & Sculptures

Nathalie Miebach is a Boston-based artist who translates weather data into complex sculptures and musical scores.

“Recently, I have begun translating weather data collected in cities into musical scores, which are then translated into sculptures as well as being a source for collaboration with musicians. These pieces are not only devices that map meteorological conditions of a specific time and place, but are also functional musical scores to be played by musicians. While musicians have freedom to interpret, they are asked not to change the essential relationship of the notes to ensure that what is still heard is indeed the meteorological relationship of weather data.” (Scroll down for the Call for Composers.)

Online Gamers Crack Enzyme Riddle

[HIV-1, coloured green, budding from a cultured lymphocyte. Photo: HIV-1, coloured green, budding from a cultured lymphocyte. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.] Online gamers crack enzyme riddle, from ABC News:

Online gamers have achieved a feat beyond the realm of Second Life or World of Warcraft: they have deciphered the structure of an enzyme of an AIDS-like virus that had thwarted scientists for a decade.

The exploit was detailed on Sunday in the journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, where — exceptionally in scientific publishing — both gamers and researchers are honoured as co-authors.” More >>

Blue Morph [us Governor’s Island, NY]

New York Electronic Art Festival presents Blue Morph by Victoria Vesna and James Gimzewski :: until September 25, 2011 :: St. Cornelius Chapel, Governor’s Island, NY.

Blue Morph is an interactive installation that uses nanoscale images and sounds derived from the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. The piece emerges in sound and pattern only when the viewer is STILL and SILENT.

Nanotechnology is changing our perception of life and this is symbolic in the Blue Morpho butterfly with the optics involved — that beautiful blue color is not pigment at all but patterns and structure which is what nano-photonics is centered on studying. Continue reading

Tangible Feelings [be Brussels]

LEA Volume 17 Issue 1: MISH MASH

Leonardo Electronic Almanac, Volume 17 Issue 1: MISH MASH, August 2011.

Transmediation as Betrayal: The Case of the Leonardo Electronic Almanac Editorial by Lanfranco Aceti: When inheriting the history of a publication like the Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA) it is difficult to stay faithful to historical traditions and at the same time catch up with the evolution of contemporary online media and social networks.

Academic Vanitas: Michael Aurbach and Critical Theory by Dorothy Joiner: In a satiric series of sculptures, Michael Aurbach uses laughter to lampoon the excesses of the contemporary scholarship known as critical theory. Spun from psychology, linguistic hermeneutics, and philosophy, critical theory, in Aurbach’s view, tends to deemphasize art objects, substituting fatuous speculations for straightforward analysis.

Experimental Arts Conference [au Sydney]

Experimental Arts Conference :: August 19-20, 2011 :: National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA), College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales, GPO Box 259 Paddington NSW 2021 Sydney, Australia.

What is experimentation? What makes art ‘experimental’? What are the results of aesthetic experiments and why do we need them? Could artists invent new modes of experimentation with/for science? What are the differences between experiments and inventions; experiments and failures; experiment and innovation? How do we set up ethico-scientific-aesthetic experiments?

This conference will showcase and discuss innovative arts projects by leading practitioners, thinkers and research groups that model new forms of transdisciplinarity and offer new ways of addressing real-world issues. Continue reading
