Coded Cultures 2011: The City as Interface [at Vienna]

Coded Cultures 2011: The City as Interface :: September 21 – October 2, 2011 :: Second district (Leopoldstadt), Vienna, Austria.

Coded Cultures is an multinational initiative of the group to discuss and reflect the intersections of media, art, society and technology in experimental settings of exihibitions, workshops, symposia, presentations and artistic interventions. For the fourth time, Coded Cultures presents a forum to discuss and present (new) media arts, digital communities and positions itself in the current international (media arts) discourse.

Scanner, The News Of The World & The Art Of Listening In

Scanner, The News Of The World & The Art Of Listening In by Luke Turner, The Quietus:

Robin Rimbaud – AKA Scanner – once trawled the airwaves recording ‘found’ telephone conversations. He discusses his controversial work, and remembers when the News Of The World tried to buy his archive of recordings.

“Back in the days before digital mobile technology, landline phonecalls could be surprising affairs. You’d pick up the receiver and be able to hear, faint and distant, the sound of someone else’s telephone call. As voyeur, you were presented with the moral question of whether to hang up, or else keep listening in to this unexpurgated, uncensored confessional. Generally, most of the conversations would be mundane, but the very act of listening in felt uncomfortable, with a strange and dark allure. Continue reading

[-empyre-] Reclaiming Creativity as Agent of Change

July 2011 on –empyre soft-skinned space: Reclaiming Creativity as Agent of Change :: Moderated by Simon Biggs (UK/ Australia) with co-moderator and discussant Magnus Lawrie (UK) and invited discussants, Shu Lea Cheang (Taiwan/ USA/ France), Paolo Cirio (Italy), Jussi Parikka (Finland/ UK), Saul Albert (UK), Julian Oliver (NZ), Michel Bauwens (Belgium) and Simon Yuill (UK).

Established during the so-called “age of discovery”, cities such as London were not only loci of empire but trading hubs. At that time European nations exercised power at sea. However, there were other players on the high-seas — the pirates, portrayed as scavengers and thieves but also as social innovators and redistributive “Robin Hoods”. Continue reading

Orbitando Satélites proposes an exercise in the visualisation and investigation of these “rarae aves” that operate in habitually imperceptible frequencies and distances. We listen to them with DIY antenas and radios, showing how to locate them and observe them with free hardware and software.

In the tradition of the independent groups involved in the creation of free/libre infrastructures the meeting unites amateurs and experts, from various countries and cultures, to develop a declaration which poetically sketches this occult ring that surrounds us. Continue reading

“The Anthropology of Hackers” by Gabriella Coleman

The Anthropology of Hackers by Gabriella Coleman, The Atlantic:

“A “hacker” is a technologist with a love for computing and a “hack” is a clever technical solution arrived through a non-obvious means. It doesn’t mean to compromise the Pentagon, change your grades, or take down the global financial system, although it can, but that is a very narrow reality of the term. Hackers tend to value a set of liberal principles: freedom, privacy, and access; they tend to adore computers; some gain unauthorized access to technologies, though the degree of illegality greatly varies (and much, even most of hacking, by the definition I set above, is actually legal).

Device_art 3.010 [jp Japan]

Device_art 3.010: Croatia_Slovenia_Japan :: September 23 – October 1, 2010 :: Miraikan – National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, SuperDeluxe, Waseda University Toyama Campus, Japan.

Googling the term “device art” will produce results mostly related to either Japan or Croatia. This is because device art as a project was initiated independently and serendipitously in these two countries in 2004, sharing the name but differing in concept, goals, artistic, cultural and historical background.
