Abiogenesis

The Game/Play team are pleased to present: An online performance by Tale of Tales – Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn, in The Endless Forest :: Thursday July 27th 7.00pm – 8.00 pm (BST) :: Free, all are welcome :: To play: Download the Endless Forest ‘social screensaver‘.

Come and meet us online within the live, real-time world of ‘The Endless Forest’. “The Endless Forest by Tale of Tales is a game about beauty, wonder, calm and peace. There are no stealth missions, no guns to swap, no armour or enemies. Taking on the role of a somewhat dreamy deer who wanders through an endless forest imbued with magical powers that seem as unpredictable as mesmerising, players of The Endless Forest are invited to hang out and roam amidst beautiful trees, old mysterious ruins, an idyllic pond and happy flower beds. Without a goal of any sorts, they soon find that thereÂ’s more to the forest than just mere eye candy.” Maaike Lauwaert & Martijn Hendriks. Read full text. Continue reading

Mouthpiece + Dis-Armor

0omouthpc.jpg

Prosthetic Communication Equipment

The Mouthpiece has been designed to help strangers who find it difficult to express their feelings or opinions face to face. A small LCD monitor and loudspeakers are covering the mouth of the wearer like a gag. The equipment replaces the real act of speech with pre-recorded, edited and electronically perfected statements, questions, answers, stories, etc.

The Mouthpiece “replaces” the actual act of speech with the moving image of the immigrant’s lips and the sound of his/her voice. The small size of the screen forces viewers to come closer in order to see the image of speaking lips and to hear the voice clearly, reducing the distance between the immigrant and the other.

The Mouthpiece points to the absurdity of depriving speech rights in a democratic society. It responds to the actual political process and experience of such deprivation, while at the same time it helps to translate this disadvantage into a new advantage. This stranger becomes an expert and a virtuoso in the technology and the artistry of speech, equipped to speak better than others who have yet to overcome speechlessness in their encounter with strangers.

How is it possible to make a political change?

Concerned to cause a shift to a more collective mode of cultural production, fully embracing Foucault´s critique of the author’s name in favour of collective authorship, Makearevolution* is a project that invites everyone to post revolutionary statements, and to share their major concerns about culture, global/local geo-politics, power, labor, environment, post-social issues, etc. The objective is to explore the relationships between contemporary art and current cultural and political trends. It will focus on revolution as a pervasive cultural phenomenon and explore connections between the art system and revolutionary ideology.

Makearevolution* will deal with themes related on different levels, be they social, political or aesthetic, and in this way address current democratic discussions. Key questions are how forms of revolution have historically been propagating or reacting against discourses of modernity, and how a high level of stylistic and “aesthetic” consciousness is central to revolutionary movements’ quest for mass appeal.

Makearevolution* is an ongoing and mobile project that can be presented in different nonprofit art and non-art spaces. This structure is ready to put in practice revolutionary ideas and ideals near you. invitations from all over the world are accepted in order to build and develop revolutions near you. For more info, please contact makearevolution.net at info[at]makearevolution.net. Continue reading

Unravel: the SIGGRAPH2006 Fashion Show

disdress_1.jpg

Wonderland – The Disappearing Dress

This project aims through the innovative marriage of art, science, fashion, technology and education to engage public consciousness through more positive currency, through humor, imagination and wonder, both on behalf of the next generation of consumers as well as existing ones. The Disappearing Dress is part of this wider project.

The garment is constructed of a water soluble polymer. When dissolved the fabric turns into a tiny amount of liquid gel which can be reconstituted into a solid once more or used to grow plants. The dress is a dramatic illustration of how the material behaves.

The Disappearing Dress will be at Unravel: the SIGGRAPH2006 Fashion Show on July 31, 2006. In future exhibitions, in London, Sheffield and Belfast in 2007, there will be a series of dresses which will dissolve over the course of 3 weeks and these will be the introduction to the other half of the project – ‘Ideas that can change the worldÂ’, practical and inspiring ideas for environmentally sound products and recycling methods.

Unravel: the SIGGRAPH2006 Fashion Show

Garments as Secondary Skins

Unravel: the SIGGRAPH2006 Fashion Show presents a runway show of innovative and experimental works in computational and conceptual couture, fashion with a social agenda, science-inspired form, and new technologies of material fabrication. Unravel brings together the work of designers and artists from the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia who are seeking to redefine the notion of ‘wearable.’

In the increasingly mobile nature of contemporary life, it has become important to contemplate how the devices we carry and the garments we wear converge into a ‘secondary skin’ which function as an extension of ourselves, in both ability and perception. By using fashion, a medium which has always been associated with self-expression and personal identity, these designers seek to demonstrate how the use (or misuse) of technology and its modes of production have the power to stimulate, delight, and inspire in ways as yet untapped in the fashion world.

Upcoming workshop: @ Mediamatic Amsterdam

11948-380-507.jpg

RFID and The Internet of Things

After a succesfull CrashCourse in May, Mediamatic now presents a second workshop on RFID and The Internet of Things :: 11, 12, 13 September 2006 :: Confirmed lecturers and trainers: Julian Bleecker (US), Timo Arnall (Norway) and Arie Altena (NL).

RFID allows for the unique identification of objects, and any kind of online data can be linked to these unique ID’s. If RFID becomes an open web-based platform, and users can tag, share, and contribute content to the digital existence of their own places and objects, we can truly speak of an Internet of Things. This opens perpectives for new sustainability scenario’s, for new relations between people and the stuff they have, and for other locative applications. Continue reading

Flüux:/terminal

fluux.gif

A Bipolar Performance

Flüux:/terminal is a bipolar performance that skoltz_kolgen have named diptyque rétinal . As in all Of their work, here their research has established a point of contact between sound and image. But Flüux:/terminal pushes the dialogue between these two elements one step further: their performance Creates a dramatic tra jectory, fuelled by the panoramic tensions (left/right) between hearing and seeing.

Flüux:/terminal projects images on two screens, in a parallel visual body of luminous particles_ photographed or filmed images and wire frame displays. As stereophonic visual representations, the two screens are the alter egos Of the audio, which is also divided in two. The sound sources (left/right) are desynchronized and propelled into separate channels: the left-hand channel excites the left-hand image; the right-hand channel excites the right-hand Image. The image is distorted, bearing the marks that the sound imprints upon it, and becomes the fossil of the sound. Continue reading

Dark Source

Exposing Democracy Owners

One of the most senseless use of technology is electronic voting. With no advantages except from the speed (real time) county of votes, this ‘innovation’ is simply an enormous swindle. In fact the votes are stored as files, so infinitely more falsifiable than the one written on the traditional paper, and the worst is that the whole process is managed by proprietary software, so with unstable and unintelligible methods. Part of the Weibel-Latour ZKM’s Making Things Public exhibition, Dark Source by Ben Rubin makes this paradox even more evident. It consists of a representation of the Diebold AccuVote-TS touch-screen voting terminals, recently adopted in many U.S. states. It’s a printout of some of the 49,609 lines of C++ source code (other pages are available through some microfiche terminals), with all the same code blacked out, because of the trade secret the company claimed as a property on its intellectual product.

This is a stunning representation of an absurdity: the act of gifting the employees of a trade secret defending company the right to manage and frame the most important democratic process. Then the question is: there’s any election procedure that can be kept secret or privately owned? Not really. But unfortunately this is an ongoing experiment going on in many countries, perhaps a testbed to take over the paper/pencil scheme sometime in the future. Technology is not for everything, and this kind of techno-positivism dreams can generate scaring nightmares. [posted on Neural] Continue reading

Piksel06

piksel06_logo.jpg

CALL for PARTICIPATION

Piksel[1] is an annual event for artists and developers working with free and open source audiovisual software. Part workshop, part festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, by the Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts (BEK) [2] and involves participants from more than a dozen countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free and open source software.

This years event – Piksel06 – continues the exploration of audiovisual code and it’s myriad of expressions, but also brings in open hardware as a new focus area. At Piksel06 we will expand the exhibition part and build upon the open hardware theme, which represents a potential for a new paradigm shift of vital importance for independent artistic expression in the digital domain.

Piksel06 is done in collaboration with HKS art centre[3] which will be the main location for this years events. Piksel is organised by BEK and a community of core participants including members of collectives dyne.org, goto10.org, sustainablesource.net, hackitectura.net, riereta.net, drone.ws, gephex.org and others.
