Reblogged Digital Surrogates: The work of Eva and Franco Mattes

beuys_2_1.jpgDigital Surrogates, currently on show at David Krut Projects, is unique in that it is arguably the first exhibition in South Africa to showcase the current global fascination for virtual bodies, or avatars. The show features portraits from Eva and Franco Mattes’ 13 Most Beautiful Avatars alongside new work by South African artists, Bronwyn Millar and Pippa Stalker.

Eva and Franco Mattes have been called many names, most notably by Nike officials and the citizens of Vienna, after they ‘stole’ the Nike logo and invented the campaign ‘Nikeground’. ‘Nikeground’ renamed Vienna’s Karlsplatz Nikeplatz, and threatened to install a 36 x 18 metre monument of the Nike logo on the historic square. Then there are also the names they have taken themselves: Luther Blissett, Renato Posapiani, Tania Copechi and the better known 0100101110101101.ORG. Continue reading

Displaced Familiarity: Interview with Scott Kildall

paradiseahead.jpgDisplaced Familiarity: Interview with Scott Kildall by Domenico Quaranta – Scott Kildall is a visual artist currently living in San Francisco, where he is working as a fellowship artist with the Kala Art Institute. In 2006 he received an M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Starting in 2001, he put together a huge body of work in a variety of media including video installation, sound architecture, electromechanical sculpture and single-channel video projection. Being interested in issues such as dislocation, transition and emotional upheaval and in the exploration of anticipatory moments , it’s no surprise that he was attracted by Second Life, where he become Great Escape, the purple-faced member of the Second Front performance group, that he co-founded in 2006. There he anticipated the re-enactment trend with his print series Paradise Ahead, and there he is developing (together with artist Victoria Scott) his last project, No Matter, one of the winners of the Mixed Realities Commissions organized by Turbulence.org and Ars Virtua (see the end of this interview for more details on the project).

Conor McGarrigle’s “Joyce Walks”

joycewalksimage2.jpgJoyce Walks a new project by Conor McGarrigle: Because somewhere, sometimes it’s always Bloomsday. Every June 16th in Dublin Joyce enthusiasts celebrate Bloomsday with re-enactments of events from Ulysses. Unfortunately not everyone can be in Dublin for that day but why should that stop you celebrating Bloomsday where you want when you want. So as Bloomsday approaches we announce Joyce Walks a web 2.0 service which will let you map routes from Ulysses to any city in the world so that Bloomsday can be celebrated in any place at any time.

Joyce Walks is a psychogeographical tool which generates walking maps based on routes from James Joyce’s Ulysses in any city in the world using Google Maps. The system prints maps to be used as the basis of walks exploring the city of your choice and generates mashups using your pictures and videos documenting these walks to share with other users.

Reblogged Second Life Re-enactments

beuys-3.jpgWhile virtual environments like Second Life offer artists a new platform for the creation of original works, it’s always interesting to see the past being reinterpreted. I’m pretty sure it was Marshall McLuhan who said all new media consumes its predecessor’s content before settling on a new form, and we have witnessed his observations unfolding with the Radio > Television > YouTube evolution.

Eva and Franco Mattes (of 0100101110101101 fame) have taken this ethos of appropriation to heart in their ongoing Synthetic Performances. Continue reading

7000 Oaks

beuypl2s.jpgWith

7000 Oaks

Eva and Franco Mattes (a.k.a. 0100101110101101.ORG) are re-enacting Joseph Beuys’ “7000 Oaks” in Second Life :: Beuys’ project began on March 16, 1982, at Documenta 7, in Kassel. His plan called for the planting of seven thousand trees, each paired with a columnar basalt stone. Beuys intended the Kassel project to be the first stage in an ongoing scheme of tree planting to be extended throughout the world as part of a global mission to effect environmental and social change.

The Mattes planted the first virtual tree on March 16th, 2007, exactly 25 years after the original oak was planted. The 7000 basalt stones have been stacked on Mattes’ island in Second Life: Cosmos Island. Continue reading

“Remote” by Kraft and Purver

remote.jpgRemote: a multimedia performance by Kraft and Purver :: When: Aug. 3-12, 2006 (Thurs, Fri, Sat @ 8pm) :: Where: CounterPULSE, 1310 Mission St. (at 9th), San Francisco :: Reservations: (415) 435-7552 :: How Much: $12-15 weekend of 3rd, $15-20 weekend of 10th.

The further you are, the closer I feel to you… please, stay away” – Remote :: In a time where traditional intelligence networks seem to have failed, and where “faith-based” decisions challenge scientific “objectivity”, this new multimedia theatre project by award winners Kraft + Purver weaves live video manipulation with theater to blur the lines between reality and perception.

Both hilarious and revealing, Remote draws from factual research into bizarre experiments in psychic spying performed by the U.S. military and the CIA, and also from the impact of communications technology on the nature of relationships, and takes an unconventional look at our attempts to connect and control while still paradoxically maintaining a safe distance.

Reblogged Bamiyan’s Laser Buddhas

buddhas05.jpgSix months before radical islamists affiliated with Afghanistan’s Taliban got our attention on September 11, 2001, they outraged the world by blasting 1600-year old Buddha statues off the face of the Bamiyan Valley cliffs. Now California-based artist Hiro Yamagata has plans to put them back.

At the request of Afghanistan’s government, he’ll install a permanent laser projection system in the valley to superimpose 140 faceless, overlapping Buddhas. To be completed by June 2007, the project will utilize 14 laser projectors powered by windmills and solar panels to create the nearly 200-foot tall images. Continue reading
