Reblogged Processing: A Programming Handbook

0262182629-medium.jpgProcessing: A Programming Handbook for Visual Designers and Artists by Casey Reas and Ben Fry: Casey Reas is one of the few digital artists that are both technically and theoretically talented. In the media space his works of art are more often than not taken over by his status of Processing language co-creator with Ben Fry. That’s wrong and it means to miss an essential part of its work. But being a programming language creator means to work for a community, abstracting problems and implementing then tools for creative solutions. That’s why this is a unique book. Continue reading

“Semiotic Disobedience” by Sonia Katyal

freedomaintfree.jpg[Image: Graffitti Research Lab] Abstract: Nearly twenty years ago, a prominent media studies professor, John Fiske, coined the term “semiotic democracy” to describe a world where audiences freely and widely engage in the use of cultural symbols in response to the forces of media. Although Fiske originally referenced the audience’s power in viewing and interpreting television narratives, today, his vision of semiotic democracy has become perhaps the single most important ideal cited by scholars who imagine a utopian relationship between law, technology, and democratic culture. In this Article, I seek to introduce another framework to supplement Fiske’s important metaphor: the phenomenon of “semiotic disobedience.” Three contemporary cultural moments in the world – one corporate, one academic, and one artistic – call for a new understanding of the limitations and possibilities of semiotic democracy and underline the need for a supplementary framework.

My Temporary Visiting Position From The Sunset Terrace Bar

sunsetterrace1.jpgThe Registry of Culture of NRW, Guetersloh presents: My Temporary Visiting Position From The Sunset Terrace Bar a new work by Carlo Zanni. Set in the city of Ahlen, Germany, The Sunset Terrace Bar, imitates an amateur’s film of the landscape framed at sunset. While the city strip is prerecorded the sky is captured in real time from a webcam shooting the sky of Naples (Italy) at sunset and as such, always changing.

The work, confronting themes such as exile, migration and border control, is enhanced by a poem by the esteemed author Ghada Samman and music by the international band Gotan Project and legendary composer Gabriel Yared. People visiting the website can choose upon two ways to experience the work: a live mode, available only in a specific time frame during the sunset in Naples or browsing through the archive where a time accelerated HD version of the movie is rendered every day and archived online.

Transborder Immigrant Tool

transborder.jpgTransborder Immigrant Tool: A Mexico/U.S. Border Disturbance Art Project by Ricardo Dominguez, Brett Stalbaum, Micha Cárdenas and Jason Najarro.

The border between the U.S. and Mexico has moved between the virtual and the all too real since before the birth of the two nation-states. This has allowed a deep archive of suspect movement across this border to be traced and tagged – specifically anchored to immigrants bodies moving north, while immigrant bodies moving south much less so. The danger of moving north across this border is not a question of politics, but vertiginous geography. Hundreds of people have died crossing the U.S./Mexico border due to not being able to tell where they are in relation to where they have been and which direction they need to go to reach their destination safely.

Txt of the Living Dead

living_dead_500px.jpg“NOISIEL, France — An American mashup artist let passers-by put words in giant zombies’ mouths last week. The show, called Txt of the Living Dead, projected 15-foot-wide, black-and-white stills from George A. Romero’s classic 1968 horror flick Night of the Living Dead onto buildings. Text messages from random people on the street then filled comics-style speech balloons that were added to the images in what New York artist Paul Notzold called an “SMS-enabled interactive street performance.” …

Notzold’s work is one of several public art projects, like Smoke Signals and the Helloworld Project, that encourage viewers to become participants. Continue reading
