Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen

Agence TOPO, a Montreal-based artist-run centre for new media, launches a new call for projects for its series Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen. This program, initiated in 2007 with the NT2 Lab (University of Quebec in Montréal), presents (hyper)media works that incorporate a performative aspect and which explore the links between the screen and the off-screen space: poetry readings and interpretations, participative performances, interactive devices, etc.

For its coming editions, Agence TOPO will consider proposals of works comprising a narrative and performative dimension that fosters visual, audio and textual exploration, both in its physical and on-screen aspects. Continue reading

Chance: An Imaginary Tool For e-Arts

CIAC Magazine #39 — Chance: An Imaginary Tool For e-Arts featuring original artworks from five net artists: Gregory Chatonsky: My Voice and Phenomena; Mouchette aka Martine Neddam: Turkmenbashi, Mon Amour; Jhave: Give Me Your Light; Mark Amerika: Immobilité (Extraterrestrial Glitch Remix); Thomson & Craighead: Template Cinema.

“Video is the new net art” writes Mark Amerika on Twitter! Given that video art is considered to be one of net art’s original sources, this statement may appear somewhat contradictory. Yet it mirrors the works brought together for this exhibition as well as some art forms emerging on the Internet. Standing at the crossroads of video, cinema and hypermedia, such mixed experiences are revamped via current technological tools such as Video Jockey and animation softwares, webcams, YouTube, Flickr, streaming, cell phone.

Exploring Produsage

A Special Issue of New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia: Exploring Produsage :: Call for Papers — Deadline: July 16, 2010.

The concept of produsage points to the shift away from conventional producer/consumer relationships, and highlights the more fluid roles of users and contributors within social media environments. Participants in open source projects, in Wikipedia, in YouTube and Second Life are no longer merely consuming or using preproduced material, but neither are they at all times acting as fully self-determined producers of fully formed new works; rather, they occupy a hybrid position as produsers of content.

Produsage processes are now evident across a wide range of activities — mainly online, but increasingly also extending to the offline world — from citizen journalism and communal knowledge management through to collaborative artistic activities, from learner-led education models to citizen engagement in political processes.

Mark Bernstein has written that the link is “the most important new punctuation mark since the comma.” More than that, the link actually conveys meaning. But how do people use links to communicate ideas? This workshop is designed to uncover the semantic value of the link and its potential rhetorical effects. We want to know what has been the cultural, literary, rhetorical, and semantic impact of the link to date, and what future effects can we anticipate and bring about. Continue reading
