“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

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.

“Community without Community in Digital Culture” by Charlie Gere

Community without Community in Digital Culture by Charlie Gere, Palgrave Macmillan:

The word ‘digital’ refers to both digital data, as used in computers, and also the digits, fingers, of the hand, and thus by extension touch, which has long been a trope for connectivity, community, and participation. Thus, in its drive towards greater connectivity, our culture is digital in more than one sense, in that it increasingly encourages such contact (from the Latin, ‘com’, together, and ‘tangere’, to touch). But at the same time such technologies always involve separation, gap and distance.

Community Without Community in Digital Culture suggests that networks always involve this other aspect of touch, separation, distance and gap, as a necessary concomitant of our fundamental technicity. Continue reading
