“The Last Pictures” by Trevor Paglen

The Last Pictures by Trevor Paglen — an ultra-archival disc of images capable of lasting in space for billions of years:

In 1963 NASA launched the first communications satellite “Syncom 2″ into a geosynchronous orbit over the Atlantic Ocean. Since then, humans have slowly and methodically added to this space-based communications infrastructure. Currently, more than 800 spacecraft in geosynchronous orbit form a man-made ring of satellites around Earth at an altitude of 36,000 kilometers. Most of these spacecraft powered down long ago, yet continue to float aimlessly around the planet. Geostationary satellites are so far from earth that their orbits never decay. Continue reading

Actionable Image: Agency of Image, Performance of Body, Apparatus of Spectating [hr Zagreb]

[BADco. "Responsibility for Things Seen", 2011, photo: Dinko Rupčić] Symposium: Actionable Image: Agency of Image, Performance of Body, Apparatus of Spectating :: March 16-17, 2012 ::  Zagreb, Croatia :: Call for Participation - Deadline: February 10, 2012.

This symposium and its topic are a continuation of BADco.’s artistic interest to relate performance and image. More concretely, it was motivated by our most recent work Responsibility for Things Seen that was presented in 2011 within the Croatian participation at the Biennale di Venezia. The work required us, in the absence of performers in the six-months exhibition, to pursue the idea of ‘theater by other means’ and to custom develop a database video system that unfolds a particular nexus of body, image and technology.

Imagery in the 21st Century

Imagery in the 21st Century, edited by Oliver Grau, with Thomas Veigl, MIT Press:

We are surrounded by images as never before: on Flickr, Facebook, and YouTube; on thousands of television channels; in digital games and virtual worlds; in media art and science. Without new efforts to visualize complex ideas, structures, and systems, today’s information explosion would be unmanageable. The digital image represents endless options for manipulation; images seem capable of changing interactively or even autonomously. This volume offers systematic and interdisciplinary reflections on these new image worlds and new analytical approaches to the visual.

Imagery in the 21st Century examines this revolution in various fields, with researchers from the natural sciences and the humanities meeting to achieve a deeper understanding of the meaning and impact of the image in our time. Continue reading

Live Stage: The Real Real Thing [us Philadelphia]

The Real Real Thing: Wendy Steiner in Conversation :: February 3, 2011; 6:30 pm :: Slought Foundation, 4017 Walnut Street, Philadelphia PA.

Our culture is fixated on the pose, the state of existing simultaneously as artifice and the real thing. In this reading and conversation, Penn literary scholar Wendy Steiner discusses her latest book, The Real Real Thing: The Model in the Mirror of Art. Joining Steiner in conversation are Jeffrey E. Green, Jim English, and Jean-Michel Rabaté. A book signing will follow.

Why do so many contemporary visual artists use models — often themselves — when for much of the twentieth-century, explicitly model-based representation was relatively uncommon? What is a model, and what role do models play in the creative process? Continue reading
