Cyposium - The Book

CyPosium - The Book :: Launch: December 12, 7:00 pm :: Platform, Munich and online.

CyPosium - The Book explores the field of cyberformance — live performance events that connect remote participants via the internet — offers a variety of perspectives on this multidisciplinary live art form.

CyPosium - The Book presents selected material from the CyPosium, a one-day online symposium organised in October 2012 to discuss cyberformance. Artists from a range of backgrounds have experimented in this field for as long as they have had access to the internet, and the CyPosium sought to remember and celebrate some of this ephemeral and pioneering work.

Turbulence.org Commission: “Global Direct” by Paolo Cirio

Turbulence.org Commission: Global Direct by Paolo Cirio: Promoting global, participatory democracy Global Direct is a political philosophy driven by information technology and the failure of current political systems to respond to the complexities, crises, and speed of contemporary life. Inspired by the tradition of utopian artistic visions, and informed by extensive research, Cirio’s fifteen organograms illustrate alternative protocols, procedures and policies for actualizing a global democratic system. On the website you will also find an invitation to “Suggest a Slogan,” video statements by prominent advocates of participatory politics, and more. The slogans and printed posters of the Global Direct campaign will be disseminated through social networks and in physical public spaces. Global Direct showcases how distributed networking technologies can be used for participatory decision-making, transparent accountability, and civil awareness. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “Grow Old” by Jason Freeman

Turbulence Commission: Grow Old by Jason Freeman:

Why can’t music grow old with us?

Grow Old is a streaming EP that reflects upon the malleability of digital audio in a cloud-based musical world. The music, regenerated daily by a simple computer program, changes subtly from one day to the next and more dramatically over the course of weeks, months, and years. So just as we constantly bring new perspectives and experiences to the music we hear, the music itself also changes over time. The web site includes the current version of each of the EP’s four tracks, extensive notes on each track, the computer source code used to generate each track, and subscription links to automatically receive new versions as a podcast.

“Interactive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance” by Nathaniel Stern

Interactive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance by Nathaniel Stern, Arts Future Book, Gylphi Limited, 2013:

What is interactive art? Is this a genre? A medium? An art movement? Must a work be physically active to be classified as such, or do we interact when we sense and make sense? Is a switch-throw or link-click enough — I do this, and that happens — or must subjects and objects be confused over time? Is interaction multiple in its engagements (relational), or a one-to-one reaction (programmed)? Are interactive designs somehow more democratic and individualized than others, or is that merely a commercial strategy to sell products and ideas?

This book argues that interactive art frames moving-thinking-feeling as embodiment; the body is addressed as it is formed, and in relation. Continue reading

Everything is TEMP

TEMP Art Space is pleased to announce Everything is TEMP, an exhibition curated by Alex Ahn and Ari Lipkis featuring work by nine emerging artists who explore the fleeting nature of digital art. The idea ultimately reflects the inherent ephemerality of technology and life. Artists include Yonatan Ben-Simhon, Tyler Healy, Jack Kalish, Rune Madsen, Marisa Prefer, Byron Peters, Matthew Ostrowski, Ryan Raffa, and Timo Toots.

In the novel Nineteen Eight-Four, George Orwell created a fictional language “Newspeak,” intended to be used by the dystopian rulers of his world to limit and control free thought. Orwell masterfully demonstrated that the development of language could either hold back mankind’s advancement or pull it forward. Arduino, C, C++, CSS, HTML, Java, Javascript, PHP, Processing, Python, UNIX, XML, etc. – these are the new languages of today used to program the technologies that now run our lives, these are the advancement of language.

FM-Scenario - The Listener’s Voice

FM-Scenario - The Listener’s Voice :: June 22 – August 4, 2013 :: ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Lorenzstrasse 19, 76135 Karlsruhe, Germany.

The inter-media project FM-Scenario - The Listener’s Voice uses the Internet as a production site for generating content for further media – more specifically: radio stations, exhibitions and publications. The project’s starting point comprises Eran Schaerf’s news radio plays from the years 1997 to 2011, as well as new texts. The Listener’s Voice (2002), a fictitious radio station, moderated by a computer program is exemplary of Eran Schaerf’s news radio plays. Here, Schaerf uses the newscast format in order to indicate the relativity of its objectivity claim: newscasts not only describe apparent facts, but allow such coverage to be one narrative account among many.

“Awkward_NYC/Awkward_Everywhere” by Zannah Marsh

Turbulence Commission: Awkward_NYC / Awkward_Everywhere by Zannah Marsh:

“Awkward_NYC” is now “Awkward_Everywhere.” It is a collaborative online map for reporting social accidents and small interpersonal traumas that occur unexpectedly in public spaces. Anyone can add a story to the map. The map pinpoints sites in the New York Metropolitan or anywhere in the world where misunderstandings, outbursts, physical altercations, arguments between friends or strangers, and romantic spats or break-ups have occurred. It taps into the confessional, voyeuristic, narrative impulses that typify online behavior and subverts the notion of mapping as reductive, objective, and authoritative. As stories are added to the map, a series of data visualizations depicting the emotional terrain of various cities will be generated. Continue reading
