Reorienting Narrative: E-lit as Psychogeography

[...] “In much of her work, writer/artist J. R. Carpenter fabricates hybrid places that are both “virtual” and attached to real world locales. Like Ernst’s bedroom, these online spaces contain objects whose appearance together makes sense only in the context of the artwork, in Carpenter’s case, multimedia stories. Combining intimate details, both autobiographical and appropriated, of characters’ lives with real-world maps and photo and video “documentation,” Carpenter’s works are narrative landscapes through which the reader meanders.” From Reorienting Narrative: E-lit as Psychogeography by Illya Szilak, Huffington Post. Also see Tributaries & Text-Fed Streams curated by Kate Armstrong.

Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen

Agence TOPO, a Montreal-based artist-run centre for new media, launches a new call for projects for its series Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen. This program, initiated in 2007 with the NT2 Lab (University of Quebec in Montréal), presents (hyper)media works that incorporate a performative aspect and which explore the links between the screen and the off-screen space: poetry readings and interpretations, participative performances, interactive devices, etc.

For its coming editions, Agence TOPO will consider proposals of works comprising a narrative and performative dimension that fosters visual, audio and textual exploration, both in its physical and on-screen aspects. Continue reading

Jennifer and Kevin Mccoy: Index [us Troy, NY]

Jennifer and Kevin Mccoy: Index :: until October 13, 2012 :: EMPAC, 110 8th Street, Troy, New York.

Index is an EMPAC-commissioned public art installation by Rensselaer Arts alumni Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, which consists of multiple sculptures filmed via small, live cameras. The resulting video projection, as well as the models, will appear throughout our public spaces during an extended residency with the artists.

Inspired by a J.G. Ballard short story called The Index, in which an alphabetized list of people and places are turned into an implied, overarching narrative, the McCoys’ list spans the 1960s to today, referencing globalization, technology, mass migrations, and war. Continue reading

Superpower: Africa in Science Fiction

Superpower: Africa in Science Fiction with João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Luis Dourado, Mark Aerial Waller, Neïl Beloufa, Neill Blomkamp, Omer Fast, Paweł Althamer, The ARPANET Dialogues, Wanuri Kahiu :: until July 1, 2012 :: Arnolfini, 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol, BS1 4QA, UK.

Superpower: Africa in Science Fiction surveys the recent tendency for artists and filmmakers to apply the forms and concerns of science fiction to narratives situated in the African continent. It considers the complex undercurrents for this occurrence in art today, and posits other and possible realities existing simultaneously, via careful re-orientations of tense; elevating the need for vigilance towards the present and future over a concern for the past.

Turbulence Commission: “Space Video” by Kate Armstrong & Michael Tippett

Turbulence Commission: Space Video by Kate Armstrong & Michael Tippett, with sound by Thomas Aston [Needs Speakers/Headphones]:

Space Video addresses ideas of exploration in relation to inner and outer space. Having noticed that there are shared aesthetic qualities of video imagery that accompany disparate cultural and scientific phenomena including guided meditation, hypnosis, undersea and space exploration by NASA, motivational speaking, powerpoint backgrounds, science fiction, psychedelic drug culture, electronic music, popular spirituality, and computer effects, we have built a generative system that mixes an original non-linear narrative with YouTube videos on these subjects as they are uploaded in real time. These videos often attempt to portray what are ultimately non-visual spaces, producing images that are at once placeholders, images of the transcendental, trippy intergalactic stereotypes, and fields for persuasion.
