Robert Ladislas Derr @ Playing the City [de Frankfurt]

Robert Ladislas Derr will take Chance to Frankfurt, Germany for the Schirn Kunsthalle’s Playing the City exhibition curated by Matthias Ulrich. On April 23, 2009, Derr will accept thirty die rolls from viewers that determine his cartography from the Schirn Kunsthalle through the streets of Frankfurt.

You will be able to spot Derr on his cartographic walk – he will be the pedestrian dressed in a mirrored suit, wearing four video cameras that capture the scenes from his front, back and sides. In the mirrored suit, his presence on the street has a dichotomous relationship between being real and illusionary. Continue reading

Reblogged “Constraint City” by Gordan Savicic

Constraint City at ARCO Madrid by Gordan Savicic:

Oscar Abril Ascaso invited me to participate in his project Techformance which will take place around Murcia/ Cartagena and will eventually be shown at ARCO Madrid, one of the biggest art fairs in Europe.

I’ve been invited to do a public performance with some citizens from Cartagena interested in trying out the Constraint City jacket in January. It was an interesting experience watching other people than me wearing the corset. Continue reading

(sans femme et sans aviateur) by Jorn Ebner

Turbulence Spotlight: (sans femme et sans aviateur) by Jorn Ebner [Allow Pop-ups; Firefox users read instructions]

(sans femme et sans aviateur) is a browser-based work that was inspired by Eric Rohmer’s film “The Aviator’s Wife”. It depicts contemporary Paris, happened upon following the main locations of the movie. The photographic imagery and the audio material were recorded during walks, and bus and metro rides, in a manner similar to the Nouvelle Vague film maker — although without any pre-arrangements for settings and observations; and with repeated visits to the locations. “My intention was to honour Rohmer’s powers to get me interested in Paris, and at the same time make a work that discovers the city, even if only for myself … The work was also made with (the) intention to use the browser as a presentation tool that is independent of user interaction.” – Jorn Ebner Continue reading

Live Stage: Contemporary Flâneurie [us Rochester, MI]

[Image: (sans femme et sans aviateur) by Jorn Ebner] Contemporary Flâneurie: Reconfiguring Cities :: March 7 – April 12, 2009 :: Opening Reception: March 7; 6:00 – 8:00 pm :: Curator’s Talk: March 8; 2:00 pm :: Oakland University Art Gallery, Oakland University, 2200 N. Squirrel Road, Rochester, Michigan.

In Modernity, the flâneur, while strolling around his streets, participated in the depiction of a changing city, playing simultaneously active and detached roles. The flâneur and his city maintained a symbiotic relationship, where one helped (re)define the other. In view of current trends in globalization, immigration and technology (i.e., Web 2.0), one’s positioning is more fluid than ever before. Continue reading

“Urban Squares” by Aleksandar Janicijevic

Aleksandar Janicijevic has been developing Urban Squares since July 2001. It consists of an intensive collection of urban square images. The photos have been taken in more than 15 countries, stitched together as 360˚ panoramas and prepared in two formats, a Quicktime VR that can be viewed as an interactive movie, and some of them in a version prepared for printing at up to 20″ x 150″. As an integral part of this collection a classification system was developed. There are two parts to this system: categories of the types of squares and an evaluation method.

By classifying and then analyzing the elements of a square, I slowly began to realize that there is a similarity between the city and a living organism. We can treat cities as entities with collective intelligence and, with the same analogy, we can recognize a system by which the urban space communicates with us. the square, as a city’s “heart and soul”, has the most to say, so recently I concentrated my artistic exploration on the language of urban squares.

Sugoroku by Marc Veyrat [fr Saint Étienne]

Sugoroku by Marc Veyrat :: Saint Étienne International Design Biennial :: November 15-30, 2008 :: Saint Étienne, France.

Sugoroku proposes an exploration of the town in the form of a game that combines walking in the city with new technologies. Sugoroku is an event intended to combine the real world with virtual ones and explore the quality of public spaces using art and design resources. In this game, the idea is to collect virtual objects distributed in real places, following paths that normally one would not follow. These objects are drawn from and made out of Saint Etienne’s industrial memory. They are a way of studying and interpreting it. Continue reading

Urban Space, Time to Play [cn Shanghai]

Urban Space, Time to Play – “Urbanized Landscape” Shanghai eArts Festival 2008 International Workshop w/V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media :: October 19 – 22, 2008 :: No.395, Shilong Rd, Xuhui District, Shanghai :: Number of participants: 30.

The city is no longer a clearly localizable spatial unit, but has transformed into an “urban field”, a collection of activities instead of a material structure. V2_ presents a four-day workshop dedicated to DIY design of urban games, art activism and playful interventions organized in cooperation with the Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde and the German artist Aram Bartholl who lived for many years in Rotterdam. During the workshop the participants will conceptualize and develop two interactive games in urban space, which will be publicly presented at the end of the workshop. Continue reading

Live Stage: Virta-Flaneurazine [us Los Angeles]

Virta-Flaneurazine by Will Pappenheimer and John (Craig) Freeman :: September 6 – October 4, 2008 :: Opening Reception: September 6, 6-9:00 pm :: Fringe Exhibitions, 504 Chung King Court, Los Angeles, CA :: Call for Participants.

Virta-Flaneurazine (VF) is a potent programmable mood-changing drug for Second Life (SL). It is identified as part of the Wanderment family of psychotropic drugs because it automatically causes the user to aimlessly roam the distant lands of online 3D worlds. As the prograchemistry takes effect, users find themselves erratically teleporting to random locations, behaving strangely, seeing digephemera and walking or flying in circuitous paths.

Geographical Web or Geoweb: Deadline Next Week

The Geographical Web or Geoweb :: CALL FOR PROJECTS – Agence TOPO Residency program for Web art production under the artistic direction of Sylvie Parent :: DEADLINE: August 15, 2008.

Nowadays, the popularity of cartographic and earth visualization tools such as Google Maps and Google Earth has become an increasingly tangible component of how we experience the Web. Moreover, the use of geolocalization systems, such as GPS, is spreading and increasingly present in the digital world. Artists are appropriating these technologies to create travelogues, to reflect on urban space, and to conceive collective psychogeography and locational media projects. Continue reading

[Synapse elist] Participation Cartography: re-defining performance art and cartography

[Image: Christian Nold’s Biomapping] ” … Over the last three years or so I have investigating practices in which participants perform actions that can be framed as cartographic and that are carried out according to a framework provided by the artist or group of artists. I myself produced such a work in 2003 in my homeland, Colombia. My PhD research is almost done and in what follows I just want to share with you a summary of my ideas in the hope that you comment on them and find them useful.

I term this artistic practice Participation Cartography. This term expands previous notions such as psychogeography, map-art (Wood), collaborative mapping projects (Alice Sant), para-cartography (John Krygier), and others. The defining feature of this practice is that it enables participants to position themselves in relation to a given lived space. Continue reading
