========================>let’s go< (1) NEW REVIEWS/ARTICLES/WORKS ON FURTHERFIELD.ORG DEC 05: Featuring work by: Florian Cramer, DVblog Quicktime Platform, Roxana Torre, Tony Scott, Glorious Ninth. ==================================== Words Made Flesh by Florian Cramer. Although it was not until 1957 that mathematician John W. Tukey coined the term “software”, its history can be traced back to Antiquity, according to Florian Cramer. One of the main advocates of Software Art and long-time researcher on the relations between literature and computing, Cramer has written the book “Words Made Flesh. Code, Culture, Imagination” during a fellowship in the Media Design Research program at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. In this 140-page essay, he develops a historical overview of the philosophical, mystical, literary and artistic currents that lead to the present concept of software as a cultural practice. Article by Pau Waelder. DVblog Quicktime Platform. " is a Vlog and platform for artists and scholars for presenting or publishing stand-alone quicktime works." The deal is simple, if you are currently creating work in Quicktime, upload them and let everyone see it. As well as the central column of recently uploaded works for all to view, on the left side of the blog sits a list of archived works, tagged with various genre titles such as Trailer Cinema& Ephemera. It also has other categories such as: realtime, net art, personal, quicktime tech, quicktime VR and many more. Review by Marc Garrett. Personal World Map by Roxana Torre. Roxana Torre's "Personal World Map" is an interactive world map, where the world is distorted according to the potential traveler's time/budget limitations. The user chooses a "center", and defines time and money boundaries. After processing that data against a database of commercial flight data, a new map is produced, a personal world map. This new map is a distorted map, as geography and physical distances are no longer relevant in face of those new limitations and the availability of flights and their cost distribution. Review by Tsila Hassine Glitch Art by Tony Scott. Behind the word 'Glitch' there is now adigital art movement emerging that explores imperfection by producing or saving unwanted images. Made with a digital camera, a printer or a scanner and based on an accident or a malfunction in a program causing a computer crash, a glitch can be defined saying that it is the on-screen output of something not working properly. Review by Joachim Desarmenien. Packet Switching by Glorious Ninth. “Ultimately there are only two basic states or basic phases and everything of interest takes place on the boundary between them: on the boundary between chaos and order, on the boundary of water and ice, on the boundary of finite and infinite computer process.” Tor Norretranders*. Kate Southworth and Patrick Simons have been creating audiovisual artworks, output in Shockwave, for exhibitions, projections at public gatherings of various kinds and for distribution across the Internet since the year 2000.

Stanza: Abuse of the Public Domain. HTTP presents Abuse of the Public Domain, the first solo show of networked media art by UK artist Stanza. This exhibition features large-scale projections of 2 works, which use live real-time data from CCTV cameras cited in two cities, London and New York . Security tracking data is Stanza's chosen medium for these process led artworks. YOU ARE MY SUBJECTS uses data from a single fixed camera in NYC, focusing on subjects as they pass below it. AUTHENTICITY [Trying to imagine the world from everyone elsesÂ’ perspective, all at once] draws its imagery from cameras all over London. Bother works can be viewed in a web browser via the Internet and turn us all into voyeurs of eerie 'parallel realities'. “CCTV systems are everywhere in the public domain. Millions of hours worth of data are recorded every day by these cameras. We are all unwitting bit part actors, in the filming of our own lives. Usually we cannot watch, the results are not collected for broadcast back to the public. Rather they are monitored, filtered, distributed and archived without our knowledge or permission.

At MetaMute. By Finn Smith. ============================ The review by Finn Smith, also includes within it, a review about the last exhibition at the HTTP Space of the 'theatre of restless automata' (September-October, 2005) by boredomresearch. Last year digital arts platform Furtherfield extended itself into meat space, opening its HTTP gallery in Finsbury Park. Finn Smith visited the space, the boredomresearch exhibition ‘theatre of restless automataÂ’, and the resident pussy cat. I was recently shown an article in The Sunday Times Style Magazine which extolled the merits of 'creative collectives'. If the title 'Group Therapy' wasn't nauseating enough, the article went on to claim that 'like all things Warhol, the creative collective is back.' Several groups were interviewed and made statements such as: 'We want to rent our art to businesses'; 'We could be arrested if we were caught selling drinks' and 'We hope to become a famous institution'. This left me feeling grumpy and disillusioned and I travelled to the HTTP artist-run space a cynical man, expecting the worst.

Furtherfield is an online platform for the creation, promotion, and
criticism of adventurous digital/net art work for public viewing,
experience and interaction.

Furtherfield creates imaginative strategies that actively communicate
ideas and issues in a range of digital & terrestrial media contexts;
featuring works online and organizing global, contributory projects,
simultaneously on the Internet, the streets and public venues.
Furtherfield focuses on network related projects that explore new social
contexts that transcend the digital, or offer a subjective voice that
communicates beyond the medium. Furtherfield collaborates with artists,
programmers, writers, activists, musicians and thinkers who explore
beyond traditional remits.

Furtherfield was founded in 1997 and is a London based, non-profit
organisation. Who received an interim grant from the Arts Council of
England, last year. Even though this (main) fund supports Furtherfield
to continue its diverse directives online and in physical space. We
still apply for other grants to support other projects, some we get,
some we don’t and some of the work we don’t apply for, still- the
majority of Furtherfield activities and projects are self funded and are
sustained by the passion, ideas, exploration and skills of the
Furtherfield team as well as its diverse membership.
Occasional public funding facilitates a more in-depth collaboration with
programmers and artists on specific projects, usually leading to more intuitive audience interaction and accessibility.
