Turbulence Commission: “[ openspace ] wilderness” by Andrew Lyman

Turbulence Commission: [ openspace ] wilderness by Andrew Lyman:

[ openspace ] wilderness is a virtual nature preserve for a deserted section of internet. It is inhabited by more than 6,000 blogs that have been silent for 6 or more years. Whereas abandoned neighborhoods of cities — like Detroit — are undergoing rewilding (to restore and protect natural processes), what manner of new life is possible for vacated internet spaces? Visitors to [ openspace ] wilderness are invited to tag and explore its contents, and engage with the park’s active population of predators and foragers. [ openspace ] wilderness is a finite and consumable space: it may be mapped and preserved, or overrun and overgrazed depending on the actions of its visitors. Read a review. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “WoodEar” by Peter Traub

Turbulence Commission: WoodEar by Peter Traub [Needs download, and Speakers/Headphones]:

Bringing the body of the tree to the network is a natural fit — a tree is a network too: roots sensing and absorbing nutrients, leaves sensing and photosynthesizing sunlight, and phloem and xylem running throughout to carry nutrients across the structure. WoodEar attempts to merge the dynamic qualities of this biological network with the digital network. A series of sensors attached to the tree stream data on the state of its environment — light, temperature, air pressure, and wind. This live data is merged with photos and recordings of the tree’s immediate surroundings into a generative application/installation. By downloading and running the application, anyone can access the live environmental experiences of the tree — one that may be very distant from them, but that still shares the same air, sun, earth, and sky.

“Artist Animal” by Steve Baker

Artist Animal by Steve Baker, University of Minnesota Press:

Artist Animal examines the work of contemporary artists who directly confront questions of animal life, treating animals not aesthetically or symbolically but rather as beings who actively share the world with humanity. Featuring full-color examples of their art, it situates artists within the wider project of thinking beyond the human, asserting art’s power to open new ways of thinking about animals.

Animals have always been compelling subjects for artists, but the rise of animal advocacy and posthumanist thought has prompted a reconsideration of the relationship between artist and animal. Continue reading

DEAF2012 Symposium: Vital Beauty [nl Amsterdam]

DEAF2012 (Dutch Electronic Art Festival) :: Symposium: Vital Beauty - May 16-20, 2012 :: DeBalie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The symposium focuses on the question of how the age-old notion of beauty can regain an importance appropriate to the 21st century.

Our need for beauty has not diminished, as hard as modernism tried to erase it from art and life and supplant it with the sublime. It was a sublime that increasingly associated itself with negation and deconstruction. In contrast, vital beauty, as defined by John Ruskin more than 150 years ago, is a beauty of sympathies and affinities with life forms. Yet vital beauty must be reinvented, since life forms today can be technological as well as natural. Continue reading
