Turbulence Commission: “Shadow Play - Tales of Urbanization of China” by Lily & Honglei

Turbulence Commission: Shadow Play: Tales of Urbanization of China by Lily & Honglei [Download Second Life for desktop and Layar for mobile devices]

Over the past few decades China has been urbanizing at an astounding pace. In 2013, the People’s Republic unveiled its plan to relocate 260 million people from China’s countryside to one of 21 “mega regions” by 2020 (cbsnews.com). Such a significant shift will undoubtedly transform China’s national character, which has been predominantly agrarian for millennia. Shadow Play weaves three interfaces, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Physical Reality (PR), and combines the past and present — through time-honored imagery, paint, “shadow play,” and new media technologies — to immerse participants in the realities of contemporary China.

Hz Journal: From Plaintext Players to Avatar Actors: A Short Survey of Online Gaming Performance

[Eva and Franco Mattes aka 0100101110101101.ORG Reenactment of Valie Export and Peter Weibel's Tapp und Tastkino, (2007)] From Plaintext Players to Avatar Actors: A Short Survey of Online Gaming Performance by Mathias Jansson:

Performance art emerged in the mid-1960s into the 1970s and was a way to push the boundaries between art and everyday life. Many artists saw performance as an opportunity to bring art directly to the audience without having to detour through the galleries, curators or agents. Performance therefore often occurs outside the institutions on streets, squares or other public places. It was defined as an antithesis to theatre and the ideal was to “create an ephemeral and authentic experience for performer and audience in an event that could not be repeated, captured or purchased.”(1) Famous performance artists from this time are Yoko Ono, Joseph Beuys, Vito Acconci, Chris Burden and Marina Abramović.

Your Day/ My Night: Round 3: Pressure Valve/ Virtual Confinement :: March 7, 2012, 3:48 pm – March 8, 2012, 3:50 pm (SLT/PST) :: Second Life.

For the past six months, two teams of artists, Iranian (Negin Ete, Sasan Abri, Vana Nabipour) and American (Andrew Blanton, Patrick Lichty, Allie Pohl), and one Turkish translator (Zeren Goktan), under the facilitation of Morehshin Allahyahri and Eden Unluata have been creating an artistic conversation by creating texts for one another from which the other team responds through the creation of bodies of work.

This is the third round of our conversation, where the rules were to abandon the mediation of the translator and try to directly interact for the creation of a work. Continue reading
