Turbulence Commission: “A More Subtle Perplex” by Ben Dean

Turbulence Commission: A More Subtle Perplex by Ben Dean [This is an open source project: you can contribute to the Perplex here]:

A More Subtle Perplex is an experiment in quasi-linguistic formalism, in gibberish. Borrowing and inverting techniques from computer science and analytic linguistics, it blindly strives to produce the outer appearance of language — to be all form and no content. The Perplex produces synthetic languages, or at least their syntactic forms, by writing letters to you. The production of the text and the production of a given language are interdependent.

The Emergent City [uk Brentford]

The Emergent City. From Complexity to The City of Bits by Stanza :: June 5 – July 26, 2013 :: Watermans, 40 High Street, Brentford, TW8 0DS, UK.

The Emergent City. From Complexity to The City of Bits captures the changes over time in the environment (city) and represents the changing life and complexity of space as an emergent artwork. The installation goes beyond simple single user interaction to monitor and survey in real time the whole city and entirely represent the complexities of the real time city as a shifting morphing and complex system.

WWW: World Wild Web [uk London]

[Crow Sourcing by Andy Deck] WWW: World Wild Web with Paula Crutchlow & Helen Varley Jamieson, Andy Deck, Mary Flanagan, Genetic Moo, Dominic Smith, and Sarah Waterson :: October 18 - December 1, 2012 :: Furtherfield Gallery, McKenzie Pavilion, Finsbury Park, London, N4 2NQ.

To be alive is to be wild. And we humans have a will that shapes the world with language, song, lust, labour and play. And for those of us who connect with it, a network of machines now extends our reach, amplifies our urges and quickens our exchanges. 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.

“Evil Media” by Matthew Fuller and Andrew Goffey

Evil Media by Matthew Fuller and Andrew Goffey, MIT Press:

Evil Media develops a philosophy of media power that extends the concept of media beyond its tried and trusted use in the games of meaning, symbolism, and truth. It addresses the gray zones in which media exist as corporate work systems, algorithms and data structures, twenty-first century self-improvement manuals, and pharmaceutical techniques. Evil Media invites the reader to explore and understand the abstract infrastructure of the present day. From search engines to flirting strategies, from the value of institutional stupidity to the malicious minutiae of databases, this book shows how the devil is in the details.

The title takes the imperative “Don’t be evil” and asks, what would be done any differently in contemporary computational and networked media were that maxim reversed. Continue reading

98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall [us Brooklyn]

Daniel Temkin - 98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall :: October 5-28, 2012 :: Opening: October 5; 7:00 - 11:00 pm :: Devotion Gallery, 54 Majuer Street, Brooklyn, NY (L to Lorimer, G to Metropolitian).

98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall provides drunken encounters with compulsive systems. A program continually preens itself, inserting lines of code to change its visual representation, but along the way, introducing glitches and new patterns of behavior. A therapist program tries to dispense advice as her logic slowly breaks down. Continue reading

Life after New Media: Mediation as a Vital Process

Life after New Media: Mediation as a Vital Process by Sarah Kember and Joanna Zylinska, MIT Press:

In Life after New Media, Sarah Kember and Joanna Zylinska make a case for a significant shift in our understanding of new media. They argue that we should move beyond our fascination with objects — computers, smart phones, iPods, Kindles — to an examination of the interlocking technical, social, and biological processes of mediation. Doing so, they say, reveals that life itself can be understood as mediated — subject to the same processes of reproduction, transformation, flattening, and patenting undergone by other media forms.

By Kember and Zylinska’s account, the dispersal of media and technology into our biological and social lives intensifies our entanglement with nonhuman entities. Continue reading

Reblogged The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google”

The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google” by Owen Mundy, Rhizome.org:

As part of this year’s Transmediale festival in Berlin, media artist Johannes P. Osterhoff organized an online collaborative performance of search engine queries, simply titled, “Google.” For one week, Osterhof convinced myself and 36 other participants to add a unique search method to our default web browsers so that everything we “googled” — from the personal to the mundane — became instantly visible online at google-performance.org.

Live Stage: Art that Iterates [us NYC]

Art that Iterates :: September 4-28, 2012 :: Opening: September 7; 5:00 - 8:00 pm :: Macy Art Gallery, Macy Hall 444, 525 West 120th Street, New York City.

Art that Iterates explores change as a condition of the artist’s way of knowing, making, and doing. Everywhere, it seems, change is the only cultural constant. For artists, material playfulness bounces across the threshold that separates technology from craft, pictures from sculptures, and toys from jokes from poetry. Art that Iterates celebrates this remix condition with works that smear the boundaries between art/ non-art, mediate/ immediate, and viewer/ participant. Continue reading
