Madame Wang: Journal of Geo-Dispersed Collaboration

Madame Wang: Journal of Geographically Dispersed Collaboration:

Madame Wang is a Quarterly Arts journal dedicated to dispersed collaboration, migration and encounter architectures, co-action and Post-human writing programmes. It has been formed in response to a mounting need to examine, engage and critique an emerging arts-practice that is multiple, data intelligent and severally located.

Madame Wang participates in the unfolding of critical and intuitive modes of production by working closely with artists and other disciplines to deliver texts. Group writing, recursive dialogue, critique and text-artworks are all part of the pallet of approaches to the subject. Through these means, we can properly test the propositions and strategies of distributed decision-making and the possibilities of its rhetoric. Continue reading

Composite Fax Image: Lief, Sheridan, Van De Bogart

[Image: 1970s collaboration facsimile] From Art and Electronic Media Online Companion directed by Edward Shanken: Composite Fax Image by Lief Brush, Sonia Sheridan, and Willard Van De Bogart:

Using fax machines connected to a conference call phone line, in 1972 artists Lief Brush in Iowa City, Sonia Sheridan in Chicago and Willard Van De Bogart in Pittsburgh created one of the first realtime, multinodal, remote collaborative artworks. This work builds on the history of artists’ use of telecommunications, ranging from Moholy-Nagy’s Telephone Paintings of 1922 and Bertolt Brecht’s theory of Radio as an Apparatus of Communication (TE p. 228) and mail art in the 1960s. It anticipates the use of two-way communications such as satellite by Galloway & Rabinowicz and computer networking by artists including Adrian and Ascott in the later 1970s and 1980s.
