Neural 15th Anniversary: Issue #31

n31.jpgNeural 15th Anniversary: Issue #31: Neural magazine celebrates 15 years of publishing with Issue #31 and joining S.W.A.M.P. group (Doug Easterly and Matt Kenyon) for a collective micro-printing action.

Subscribers will receive a numbered / limited edition of S.W.A.M.P.’s “Notepad” sheet of paper with an envelope. It looks like an everyday yellow legal paper, but each line is constructed of micro-printed text and contains the personal details of Iraqi civilian casualties. Subscribers are triggered to write a letter or memo or draw a picture on it and send it to the White House, then signing up for a free replacement sheet on the S.W.A.M.P. website, if they want. Once in circulation each sheet then acts as a “Trojan horse” – slipping the unwanted and unacknowledged civilian body count data into official governmental archives. This is a joint action that proves how paper and pixel together can make the difference.

Politics of Change [be Brussels]

Upgrade! Brussels/Ghent and OKNO-Brussels present: Politics of Change :: December 18-20, 2008 :: OKNO, Koolmijnenkaai 30/34, 1080 Brussels, Belgium.

Politics of Change is a research project in which artists, theorists and activists reflect on innovative ideas, contributions and solutions which support distributed and grassroot structures. This reflection takes place through a program of free discussion and dialogue and is documented in a multimedia archive-installation. The focus is on the role of women at the core of these communities. Drawing on a wide range of artistic and theoretical approaches, the aim is to imagine new and sustainable relationships between humans, their environments and (appropriate) technologies.

Live Stage: Valeria Petkova + Petko Dourmana [bg Sofia]

Upgrade Sofia: Valeria Petkova and Petko Dourmana (hosted by Margarita Dorovska) :: December 22, 2008; 6:00 pm :: Goethe Insitute Sofia, 1 Budapesta St., Sofia, Bulgaria.

The common ground between the scientific experiments of Valeria Petkova and the art installations of Petko Dourmana lies in generating experiences in which human perceptions reach beyond the way we generally encounter reality. For this purpose, both Petkova and Dourmana use technical devices, which engage our visual perception and thus address the reliability of the eyesight as a primary source for orientation in our environment.

By means of cameras and virtual reality head-mounted display (HMD), Valeria Petkova and her research supervisor Dr. Henrik Erschon succeed in creating the illusion of two bodies swapping. Continue reading

Documenting New Media: Between Real and Ideal

“… At the beginning of this collaborative project we reflected on the relationship between our two different research perspectives. Caitlin’s approach, based on the tools of the Variable Media Network, focused on locating the artist’s intent as a means to aid future conservation considerations. The key principle of this approach is to record information about the essence (or “kernel”) of an artwork, independent of the media in which it manifests. It privileges the relationship between the conceptual aspects of the work (the philosophical ideas behind the artists intentions) and technical aspects of the work (encompassing the decisions the artist has made in regards to the physical components, software, installation and environmental factors of the work). Lizzie’s approach focused on the experiential aspects of the work – how the artwork “occurs” for audience members in the real world – and emphasized the argument that artworks (particularly interactive installations) exist primarily in human experience, rather than as discreet objects.

“Plazaville” by G.H. Hovagimyan, et al

Turbulence Commission: Plazaville produced by G.H. Hovagimyan, with Christina McPhee and Artists Meeting [Needs Quicktime plugin]

Plazaville is a new media video art work set in 21st century New York City. It is based on the classic 1965 movie Alphaville by Jean Luc Godard. The scenes from the original Alphaville are being re-enacted, interpreted and improvised upon by artists, actors and videographers. The piece uses the Internet as one means of distributing the short video clips. Viewers can download new scenes as they become available. This is somewhat like a serialized program but is not in any order. The videos can be viewed on computers, iPhones and large screen HD televisions (using AppleTV). Plazaville extends the notion of video-performance by using the idea of a movie shoot as vehicle for ephemeral performance art. Continue reading

“The Bridge Project” by Elif Ayiter

The aim of The Bridge Project, says Elif Ayiter, “is to visually demonstrate my personal understanding of the evolution of the computer generated “image work” [01], by means of a free associative process that utilises the search and query mechanisms of the internet. I have tried to create a structure that displays this process by showing the data gathered in detail as well as in its entirety: Zooming in and out of objects and virtual navigation following free associations that can be evoked through online thesauruses, internet search engines and the ensuing surf mechanisms that can be utilised in the act of image creation, very much like collage/assemblage.

Reblogged Twitter: Expanding the Hive Mind

[Image: Burak Arikan: Twitter networks / Jeff Clark: TwitArcs] In general, I’m a fan of social software, believing that it has great potential to be useful in the overlapping spheres between the personal and the professional. Nevertheless, I’m somewhat of a late comer to the Twitter revolution. Despite early enthusiasm from smart people like Tom Carden, I initially saw it mostly as a pseudo-chat medium and a potential timewaster. I signed up, then never came back.

However, a recent conversation with Burak Arikan about Twitter and collective thinking made me revisit the Twitter network. And guess what? I like it. Sure, there’s plenty of noise in the Twittersphere. But by wisely choosing whose streams to follow, Twitter becomes much like a collective conversation, providing in-progress snapshots of thoughts and ideas from some people I have come to know and admire.

“Curing the Vampire” by Lynn Hershman Leeson

Curing the Vampire consists of four interviews by artist-filmmaker Lynn Hershmann Leeson. Partially shot in the virtual world of Second Life, Curing the Vampire is being released one episode at a time.

Subverting the distinction between real and simulated, the interviews explore interwoven themes of revolution, empowerment, technology and the remix. Each interview examines how new and mass media mechanisms have generated change and how cultural and technological infrastructures have shaped the ability of individuals to have social and political impact.

Playing the part of Gene Ware, a character from the virtual world of Second Life, Hershman Leeson undertakes a set of interviews in conjunction with Tilda Swinton, posing questions to a selection of guests, including a politician, journalist, scientist and lawyer. Continue reading

Vague Terrain 13: citySCENE

Vague Terrain 13: citySCENE :: Call for Projects — Deadline: January 24, 2009.

In the 1980s architect Bernard Tschumi posed the following question: “If writers could manipulate the structure of stories in the same way as they twist vocabulary and grammar, couldn’t architects do the same, organizing an architectural program in a similarly objective, detached, or imaginative way?” While Tschumi was speculating the foundation for a new type of architectural practice, his thinking can be applied to problematizing our current, informatized cityscapes. Ubiquitous computing, home-brew geospatial analysis and open source culture are rapidly changing our conception and experience of urban space. If “event” could be used as a catalyst in architecture, what paradigms might we employ to recontextualize the city? Continue reading
