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.

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.

In conjunction with the exhibition The Talent Show (through August 21), The Henry Art Gallery invites you to join artist James Coupe for a screening and discussion of the artist’s recent work with ’surveillance cinema’ in (re)collector, Surveillance Suite, and the web-based work Today, too, I experienced something… I hope to understand in a few days.

James Coupe is an artist whose work focuses on emergent systems, aesthetic machines, autonomy, and networks. Educated in Fine Art at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) and Creative Technology at the University of Salford (England), his recent projects have included appropriative powerline networks, parasitical cellular phone agents, autonomous robot systems, self-organizing telephone call centres, and installations in which computers use spam to search for the meaning of the Internet.

Live video artist, Angie Eng, revives cinepoetry with miniature cameras, object manipulation and a light table with cellist Okkyung Lee and percussionist Satoshi Takeishi. A garden of digital improvisational delights, a cross between music for silent film, a surrealist appetizer and a magic act.

Ear Cinema

Ear Cinema is a collaborative multi-disciplinary installation/ performance piece incorporating animation and film footage, sound diffusion techniques (namely ambisonics) and live performance. We align the project with the ‘Expanded Cinema’ movement, a film and video practice which activates the live context of watching, transforming cinema’s historical and cultural ‘architectures of reception’ into sites of immersive experience that are heterogeneous, performative and non-determined. We have brought some of these concepts up-to-date and include cutting edge technology to combine with contemporary practices within sound art and live-performance to deliver a story in an entirely new way.
