Avatars and the Invisible Omniscience

exegesis.jpg[Image: “The Cornfield” – Second Life’s prison simulator] “Abstract: This Exegesis and accompanying artworks are the culmination of research conducted into the existence of surveillance in virtual worlds. A panoptical model has been used, and its premise tested through the extension into these communal spaces. Issues such as data security, personal and corporate privacy have been investigated, as has the use of art as a propositional mode. This Exegesis contains existing and new theoretical arguments and observations that have aided the development of research outcomes; a discussion of action research as a methodology; and questionnaire outcomes assisting in understanding player perceptions and concerns.

Reblogged Quaser – Jean Michel Crettaz

quasar.jpgSCI-Arc presents, Quasar, a new site-specific installation by the LA/NY-based design/media firm slap!, founded by architect Jean-Michel Crettaz, and produced in collaboration with the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) and Stanford’s Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology. “Quasar is an immersive light and sound space made from prototype membranes realized as an interactive light/sound object and comprised of a dense array of interlinked elements describing an intricate three-dimensional structure.”

The exhibition draws on SLAC’s continued interest in developing an awareness of the interconnectedness of space and material, with a goal of extending established notions of volume and scale. Continue reading

“Speaking at the wall” by Chiara Passa

speakingatwall.jpgSpeaking at the wall – interactive video installation by Chiara Passa (2008) – This interactive video installation synthesises the voice into virtual architecture. The spectator’s voice is recorded from a microphone and live time audio-video processed through the software Quartz Composer. Speaking at the wall develops itself on two walls and the floor. The three screenings around the corner of the three Cartesian axes reconstructs one central illusory perspective. [Quicktime Video]

While the spectator is inside the room and speaks close to the walls, he modifies with his voice (volume and spectrum) the whole environment around him. The words he pronounces draw a new atmosphere… a virtual desert. Continue reading

Live Stage: Power, Violence, Motion, Speed [il Jerusalem]

telaviv.jpgUpgrade! Tel Aviv – JerusalemPower, Violence, Motion, Speed: Art and Technology through Futurism by Duprass (Liora Belford and Ido Govrin) :: Opening and Live Performance: March 1, 2008; 2 pm :: Meeting with the Artists and Closing: March 13, 2008; 8 pm :: Daila, Shlomzion Hamalka 4, Jerusalem.

The Futurist Manifesto wished to construct a new aesthetic model which would suit the modern world. The typical representation of that aesthetic was the machine and especially the modern modes of transportation. The aim of the manifesto was to encourage the driving forces behind those modern technological symbols: Force, Violence, Motion and Speed; in order to release the world from the investigation of the ancient past.

Art and Autonomy Conference [ie Dublin]

edited111.jpgArt in the Life WorldArt and Autonomy Conference :: Tony Bennett, JJ Charlesworth, Daniel Jewesbury, Lu Jie, Maria Lind, Amanda McDonald Crowley, Ailbhe Murphy, Tone Olaf Nielsen, Tim Stott, Mitsuhiro Yoshimoto, Mick Wilson (Chair) :: February 28-29, 2008 :: Civic Centre, Ballymun, Dublin.

Art in the Life World interrogates the perceived tension between, on the one hand, the “autonomy” of practice within established artworld systems — independent spaces, galleries, art journals, fairs, public museums, private collections — and, on the other hand, the “instrumentalization” of practice through policy imperatives within public funding and commissioning of the arts—e.g., agendas rooted in regeneration, creative cities marketing, cultural tourism, and urban area identity construction and re-branding.

“ANEMICodeCINEMA” by Andy Deck

splash.jpgANEMICodeCINEMA by Andy DeckMedia Player Haters Unite :: ANEMICodeCINEMA is a free interpretation of privatized data streams, digital encryption and encoding mired in secrecy and exclusivity. It’s a premonition of future histories lost in translation. Already video and audio are often unusable and scrambled for people who do not use the dominant operating system. As time passes and data encryption secrets are forgotten, this fractured experience of today’s audio and video may become the norm rather than the exception. Continue reading

Reblogged Burak Arikan Interview

burak-beard.jpgLast summer, Cati Vaucelle at Architectradure tipped me off about Meta-Markets, a project which created a means to buy and sell units of social media. I penned an enthusiastic review of the project in the fall and continue to be engaged by this ongoing thought-experiment. Meta-Markets was authored by Burak Arikan, a graduate of the MIT Media Lab who is currently based in Brooklyn. This Friday, Burak will be taking part in a panel discussion entitled Real World Implications of Virtual Economies at the Turbulence Mixed Realities Exhibition and Symposium in Boston (and streaming live in Second Life).
