“Open House” by Stenner + LeMieux

Open House is a new computer application and installation by Jack Stenner and Patrick LeMieux which allows virtual guests from around the world to remotely control physical aspects of a “distressed” house in Gainesville, FL. The house at 1617 NW 12 Rd. is currently abandoned and in financial limbo due to the US housing collapse. Virtual markets transformed this otherwise livable property into a ghost house. Now Open House allows individuals to repopulate this disenfranchised space and assume the role of virtual squatters — opening the doors, flickering the lights, rattling the shutters, and remotely occupying the abandoned property. Live video feedback integrates real-time physical effects with one’s virtual actions and multiplayer functionality allows for many people to live in the house at once. Simply download and run the application, so, you too can manipulate that sacred icon, the American home. Continue reading

The Miracle of Chile [cl Santiago]

The Miracle of Chile is a multifaceted art project investigating Milton Friedman’s famous phrase “Miracle of Chile.” In 1981 Friedman declared the phrase to reflect a transformation of Chile’s economy through a neoliberal formula of privatization, deregulation of markets and cuts to social spending.

Today, we live in the midst of a global economic crisis that has lead us to question neoliberal philosophy. The art project consists of a workshop, public situation, bus intervention and a virtual labyrinth. Each element asks participants in Chile (the first country to fully adopt neoliberalism) to identify the Miracle of Chile as reflected in personal lives and civil space.

The project has been realized by Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga and Kurt Olmstead for the exhibition portables at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Mall Plaza Vespucio, curated by Ignacio Nieto. It is on view September 19, 2010. More >> Continue reading
