Anne-Marie Schleiner and Luis Hernandez



Chispitas is an exhibit of experimental game art pieces by Luis Hernandez and Anne-Marie Schleiner, and collaborators of theirs. Included is an arcade-like interactive sculpture :: Opening: Thursday March 29, 2007, 8:30 p.m. :: Galeria Sector Reforma, Guadalupe Victoria 398, Entre Analco y Nicolas Bravo, Guadelejara, Mexico :: T/ 36 18 88 10.

“Corridos” a car driving music game inspired by the Mexican/US Border. Also showing is “Oversaturation”, an abstract game rooted in Mexico City’s urban problematics, and “Heaven711” a hip hop poetry game in four languages. Chispas also shows a number of “Machinima” remixed game art videos, such as “Riot Gear for Rollartista”, a series of short videos dealing with European police abuse of Islamic immigrants, shown on small screen PSP’s. Some other pieces are OverMachinima and OUT, an urban intervention in America’s Army. “Chispitas”, a name suggested by guest curator Rene Hiyashi, is a variation of slang for Mexican game arcades, which are popular spaces of play and public social interaction in many parts of Mexico.

An Event for a Conversation


‘fancy a skype chat?’

An Event for a Conversation celebrates social networking and is designed to explore the social and technological aspects of communication through experimental events and conceptual research. This experimental and research process will develop towards, and inform the final interactive and relational ‘Event for a Conversation’.

The first event ‘fancy a skype chat?Â’ took place yesterday (March 25); ‘fancy a skype chat?Â’ invited people to an online, social event hosted by the artist Rebecca Gamble. Gamble’s goal was to re-create the pub-like environment of informal chat around a table over a drink, by inviting people to ‘bring their ownÂ’, ‘log onÂ’ and start chatting over Skype. Through this event, the artist hoped to connect people and their different environments through online conversation, in a virtual environment. It was documented through the texts of the ‘Group ChatÂ’ on Skype, from screen grab images of the artistsÂ’ desktop at 10-minute intervals, and in other ways the participants added to it. The conversations themselves were not recorded. Continue reading

New Media Art in a Control Society


Transcript from a Performance

Adam Trowbridge: New Media Art in a Control Society :: Transcript from Performance :: The Hunter Museum of American Art, Chattanooga, TN, USA :: March 22, 2007 :: video stills here

As noted in the transcript, the majority of the statements read were not original and instead shamelessly stolen (edited and unedited) from various sources: theoretical texts, artists’ statements, manifestos and paranoid rambling. Transcript:

This is…a performance and new media art…or maybe not. [text below is read]

– – Gilles Deleuze said “Maybe speech and communication have been corrupted. They’re thoroughly permeated by money and not by accident but by their very nature. We’ve got to hijack speech. Creating has always been something different from communicating. The key thing may be to create vacuoles of non-communication, circuit breakers, so we can elude control.” End quote. Continue reading

Workshops + Events

Audio and video Streaming Workshop, dis-organized by /Code31/ and led by Arjen Keesmaat :: March 31-April 1, 2007.

During the second workshop within the framework of Code31’s xmedk online research, we’ll present a two day crash course in audio and video streaming. What does it take to send a live video stream from your desktop to the whole world. We’ll learn how to configure a streaming server, take a look at different kinds of broadcasters. Deal with the technicalities: Which protocols to use? What is the difference between udp en tcp? What is with all these codecs?

We’ll start low level but in a further stage, dive deeper into the technicalities of streaming: How to configure your network and deal with protocols? How your video imagery gets compressed to those coded bits and bytes? The people at are giving us an introduction in getting your streams out in the open, reliably streaming to the bigger public.

Listening to the Archive I: Memoires de Sourds


A Workshop

Listening to the Archive I: Memoires de Sourds :: A workshop around Les Immateriaux :: Date: 30 March 2007 :: Venue: Auditorium, Jan van Eyck Academie, Academieplein 1, 6211 KM Maastricht, Netherlands :: Contact: Antony Hudek at ahudek[at]

The first in a series of public workshops analysing the impact of Les immatiriaux, the exhibition co-curated by Jean-Frangois Lyotard and Thierry Chaput at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, in 1985. Workshop participants Luca Frei, Marysia Lewandowska, Emily Pethick, Antonia Wunderlich and Peter Zeillinger will address Les immatiriaux as a sum of archives, from the show’s two catalogues to the sound records transmitted via headphones during the exhibition. In a bid to rethink Les immatiriaux as an unprecedented phenomenological reflection on excavation, memory, and translation, the workshop will call upon, among other references, Lyotard’s late essays (Chambre sourde, La confession d’Augustin), Jacques Derrida’s Mal d’archive and Mimoires d’aveugle, as well as contemporary artistic practices concerned with participatory forms of aesthetic engagement.

Ideas + Survey

Generic Infrastructures [2] by Rob van Kranenburg: Today we are in the worst situation imaginable. Our global and undisputed computing paradigm posits that computing processes are successful only in as much as they disappear from view. Our design focus is ever more following Philips untenable but seductive ‘sense and simplicity’ resulting in the-bug-as-a-feature-design of the Ipod Shuffle. Our educational system is following this systemic hide-complexity strategy that favors the large industrial labs, IT conglomerates and above all their clinging to notions of IP and the patent that are firmy tied to their notions of doing business and making money. And our users, us? We are YOU, the most influential person of the year 2006, according to TIME Magazine. You fill the Wikipedia entries in your spare time, you blog your daily activities, you co-bookmark on de.l.i.c.i.o.u.s, upload your photos to flickr, you buy mating gear in Second Life, and mark your position on Plazer or Google Earth. You fill out the forms. Isn’t it time you start questioning the principles behind the formats? And, to make matters even worse, your na¯ve ideas of sharing are corrupting notions of privacy, transparency and informational architecture symmetry. Continue reading

Evolution de l’Art


No Physical Residue

Evolution de l’Art :: Bratislava, Slovak Republic :: March 21 – April 22, 2007.

The gallery Evolution de l’Art arises from a collaboration between SPACE (Juraj Carny, Diana Majdakova and Lydia Pribisova) and Cesare Pietroiusti. Evolution de l’Art is a gallery for contemporary art which only sells artworks that are immaterial, with no physical residue, and it does not release certificates of authenticity, nor statements or receipts. EdlA will represent, on a non-exclusive basis, artists whose artwork is, at least in the case of some specific projects, alien from any physical-material component. Beyond this condition, there will not be any other limitation or requisite for represented artists in terms of medium or technique. EdlA offers the possibility of becoming contemporary art collectors to the widest possible audience. Therefore the gallery will offer artworks at a range of very different prices, including some that can be purchased for a few Euros. Purchases can be made at the headquarters of the gallery (Lazaretska 9, Bratislava) or through the website. Continue reading
