JardínSolar – SolarGarden

JardínSolar – SolarGarden — by Dream Addictive — is a series of sculptures that explore the field of sound interaction, using renewable energy as supply source. The intention is to integrate open source hardware and software, and solar cells as energy source, proposing a series of prototypes that generate audio and relational interfaces.

The creatures in the “solar garden” are entities of light. They feed themselves from electrons, process their energy and translate it into electronic songs. They are sociable and sensible machines, they like public space, where they can call people and invite them to play actively with established chance and ethereal frequencies of electronic sound. The sculptures are made of wood, acrylic and plastic, their aesthetics are some times mimetic and some other times are imposed on landscape, decomposing space at a visual and sound level.

[Image: Top – Julius von Bismarck’s “Image Fugurator.” Bottom – “Grafik Dynamo” by Kate Armstrong and Michael Tippett, on Turbulence.org] Between Play and Politics: Dysfunctionality in Digital Art by Marie-Laure Ryan, Electronic Book Review, March 2010:

“Let me jump right into the heart of my topic, by presenting two examples. The first, Image Fugurator, a project by Julius von Bismarck which won the Prize Ars Electronica 2008 in the category Interactive Art at the Cyberarts Festival in Linz, Austria, inverts the functioning of a regular camera…”

My second example is Grafik Dynamo, a mock graphic novel by the Canadian Web artists Kate Armstrong and Michael Tippett. True to its title, Grafik Dynamo is a constantly Continue reading

Live Stage: Jodi [nl Eindhoven]

Upgrade! Eindhoven: Jodi interviewed by Walter van der Cruijsen :: May 27, 2010; 8:00 – 10:30 pm :: Temporaty Art Centre (TAC), Vonderweg 1, 5611 BK Eindhoven.

Jodi is 2 internet artists, Joan Heemskerk (NL) and Dirk Paesmans (BE). In the mid 1990s, they established a visual language for artwork created specifically for the web. Their background also includes video and photography, which can clearly be seen in their “Screen Grab” period during the early 2000s. They have since progressed to software art and installations involving web based technologies, such as Google Earth combined with video game aesthetics. They are without doubt among the most significant artists working with the internet as their primary medium.

Walter van der Cruijsen, an internationally renown digital art initiatives pioneer and digital artist himself, is the perfect person to contextualize Jodi’s groundbreaking artistic contributions.

Parade: Public Modes of Assembly and Forms of Address [uk London]

Parade: Public Modes of Assembly and Forms of Address :: May 21-23, 2010; 5:00 pm :: Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground, Chelsea College of Art and Design, Millbank, London, UK.

Critical Practice would like to invite you to Parade. This landmark event will explore the diverse, contested and vital conceptions of being in public. Set in a bespoke structure designed by Ola Wasilkowska and Michał Piasecki, with a host of international contributors, Parade will challenge the lazy, institutionalised model of knowledge transfer. Our modes of assembly, our forms of address and the knowledge we share will be intimately bound.

Parade is a three-day event that explores “publicness” through forms of assembly and modes of address. Artists, architects, theorists, historians and other practitioners will consider issues including: being-in-public, public domain, public body, public knowledge, producing publics, the difference between public and private and much more besides.

Critical Code Studies Conference [us California]

Critical Code Studies — Keynote: Wendy Hui Kyong Chun (Brown University) :: July 23, 2010 :: University of Southern California.

As digital humanitarians continue to turn their attention to the software and hardware that shape culture, the interpretation of source code offers a rich set of symbols and processes for exploration. Critical Code Studies names the practice of explicating the extra-functional significance of source code. Rather than one specific approach or theories, CCS names a growing set of methodologies that help unpack the symbols that make up software. While still in its initial state, this nascent area of study has been growing rapidly over the course of 2010.

Following the massively successful Critical Code Study Working Group, we will be gathering at USC for a one-day conference to present readings of code. Continue reading

Live Stage: common practice [uk Bristol + online]

common practice: Texts by mez breeze :: June 3, 2010; 5:00 – 8:00 pm :: Reading Room, Arnolfini, Bristol, UK and online.

Italo Calvino said ‘the storyteller explored the possibilities implied in his own language by combining and changing the permutations of the figures and the actions, and of the objects on which these actions could be brought to bear‘. It is by following this principle that common practice will start.

The first session will open with mez breeze’s mezangelle poems, written in a blend of code and language, and we will be practising a simultaneous reading-writing reworking of these texts to experience their language-code operations during the event. Seisure, Seisure 1 Continue reading
