Moving Without A Body: Digital Philosophy and Choreographic Thoughts

Moving Without A Body: Digital Philosophy and Choreographic Thoughts by Stamatia Portanova, MIT Press:

Digital technologies offer the possibility of capturing, storing, and manipulating movement, abstracting it from the body and transforming it into numerical information. In Moving without a Body, Stamatia Portanova considers what really happens when the physicality of movement is translated into a numerical code by a technological system. Drawing on the radical empiricism of Gilles Deleuze and Alfred North Whitehead, she argues that this does not amount to a technical assessment of software’s capacity to record motion but requires a philosophical rethinking of what movement itself is, or can become.

“Community without Community in Digital Culture” by Charlie Gere

Community without Community in Digital Culture by Charlie Gere, Palgrave Macmillan:

The word ‘digital’ refers to both digital data, as used in computers, and also the digits, fingers, of the hand, and thus by extension touch, which has long been a trope for connectivity, community, and participation. Thus, in its drive towards greater connectivity, our culture is digital in more than one sense, in that it increasingly encourages such contact (from the Latin, ‘com’, together, and ‘tangere’, to touch). But at the same time such technologies always involve separation, gap and distance.

Community Without Community in Digital Culture suggests that networks always involve this other aspect of touch, separation, distance and gap, as a necessary concomitant of our fundamental technicity. Continue reading

“The Last Pictures” by Trevor Paglen

The Last Pictures by Trevor Paglen — an ultra-archival disc of images capable of lasting in space for billions of years:

In 1963 NASA launched the first communications satellite “Syncom 2″ into a geosynchronous orbit over the Atlantic Ocean. Since then, humans have slowly and methodically added to this space-based communications infrastructure. Currently, more than 800 spacecraft in geosynchronous orbit form a man-made ring of satellites around Earth at an altitude of 36,000 kilometers. Most of these spacecraft powered down long ago, yet continue to float aimlessly around the planet. Geostationary satellites are so far from earth that their orbits never decay. Continue reading

Live Stage: Programming Environments [au Rydalmere]

Digital Media Research Seminar: Programming Environments: Politics and Practices of Urban Sensing by Jennifer Gabrys :: August 23, 2012; 2:00 - 4:00 pm :: EB2.21, University of Western Sydney, Parramatta Campus, Cnr of James Ruse Drive and Victoria Road, Rydalmere, Australia.

Urban sensing technologies are an increasing feature of urban design and media design. From “Senseable” to “Sentient” cities, as well as numerous projects that deploy mobile and embedded sensors to monitor everything from air pollution to traffic patterns, urban processes are now unfolding through wireless sensor technologies. This paper will focus on a particular aspect of urban sensing projects, namely those actual and speculative proposals that suggest wireless sensing technologies are a way to achieve more sustainable and efficient cities.

Bunrakuraku [jp Osaka]

Bunrakuraku :: Galaxy Gallery, 大阪市北区中央区千日前2-3-9 ユニバースビル1F, Osaka, 542-0074, Japan.

Bunrakuraku is a new interactive project from SaBa, exploring the intersection of technology, participation, and puppetry. Taking inspiration from international styles of puppet theater, ranging from Japanese Bunraku to Punch and Judy, this work explores the intersection of audience and puppeteer ― with a few extra limbs included. Bunrakuraku connects audiences from separate locations into a virtual, puppet theater space. Limbs appear and disappear, each controlled by a different audience member. In this space, an individual’s movements and actions are combined to form a single multi-limbed puppet. Here, people are encouraged to playfully engage with an unseen collaborator. Continue reading

Jeannette Ginslov: Capturing Affect With a Handful of Techne

In this Medea Talk, Jeannette Ginslov discusses the developmental stages of the AffeXity project, the interdependence of the collaborators, the relational and dynamic formation of technical and human intervention, the encounters of the carnal and the digital, the dialogic and temporal scaffolding of encounters of techne and the hands that attempt to capture affect.

DEAF2012 Symposium: Vital Beauty [nl Amsterdam]

DEAF2012 (Dutch Electronic Art Festival) :: Symposium: Vital Beauty - May 16-20, 2012 :: DeBalie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The symposium focuses on the question of how the age-old notion of beauty can regain an importance appropriate to the 21st century.

Our need for beauty has not diminished, as hard as modernism tried to erase it from art and life and supplant it with the sublime. It was a sublime that increasingly associated itself with negation and deconstruction. In contrast, vital beauty, as defined by John Ruskin more than 150 years ago, is a beauty of sympathies and affinities with life forms. Yet vital beauty must be reinvented, since life forms today can be technological as well as natural. Continue reading

Crossing Wires: Technology and Play [us Evanston, IL]

[Apple/apple (Beta) by Dan Silverstein and Dave Tolchinsky. Picture credit: Tom Van Eynde] Crossing Wires: Technology and Play :: until April 15, 2012 :: Evanston Art Center, 2603 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL.

Technology has traditionally been used to make what functions function faster, easier and more efficiently. We expect computers, robots and machines to continue to take over the performance of chores and ramp up the production of goods. But what happens when technology is used for the non-functional, to make what is functional less functional? What happens when technology, especially complex technology, is used simply for … art or for play? Continue reading
