Filtering Failure [nl Amsterdam]

▓▓ Filtering Failure ▓▓▒▒▒▒ ▒▒ ▒▒ ░ ░ ░ — curated by Julian van Aalderen and Rosa Menkman, with Paul Davis (US/UK), Benjamin Gaulon (IR/FR), Gijs Gieskes (NL), Jodi (NL/BE), Karl Klomp (NL), no-carrier (US), Notendo (US), Nullsleep (US), Jon Satrom (US), Videogramo (ES).:: until April 1, 2011 :: PLANETART, Wibautstraat 150, Amsterdam, 1091 GR, Netherlands.

In a culture that is continuously accelerating, filters have become a primal commodity. We use them both to open and to close ourselves to or from any kind of possible information. Filters are ubiquitous. However, we only realize their presence when we lack them or when they fail our expectations. On the other hand, modern digital cultures are inseparable from keywords like functionality, smoothness, order and progress. Interaction designers, programmers and interface developers all work together to understand and execute these mantras. Continue reading

Feelings Are Always Local

Feelings Are Always Local Interactive art is organized as an open system: it is able to exchange matter, energy, and information with its environment while maintaining its coherence. Interactive art is art in a state of rest that must be disturbed: it is a system that has to become network before it becomes art at all. In order to come to grips with the phenomenon of interactive art, one must first understand the relationship between systems and networks.

With: Arjun Appadurai, Mike Davis, Alexander Galloway/Eugene Thacker, Tijs Goldsmith, Christopher Kelty, Arjen Mulder, Karim Nader, Loretta Napoleoni.

Sentient City: Ubiquitous Computing, Architecture, and the Future of Urban Space

Sentient City: Ubiquitous Computing, Architecture, and the Future of Urban Space; Edited by Mark Shepard, MIT Press:

Our cities are “smart” and getting smarter as information processing capability is embedded throughout more and more of our urban infrastructure. Few of us object to traffic light control systems that respond to the ebbs and flows of city traffic; but we might be taken aback when discount coupons for our favorite espresso drink are beamed to our mobile phones as we walk past a Starbucks. Sentient City explores the experience of living in a city that can remember, correlate, and anticipate. Five teams of architects, artists, and technologists imagine a variety of future interactions that take place as computing leaves the desktop and spills out onto the sidewalks, streets, and public spaces of the city.

REFF – Remix The World! Reinvent Reality!

REFF – Remix The World! Reinvent Reality! Art is Open Source :: until March 2011 :: Furtherfield Gallery (formerly HTTP), Unit A2, Arena Business Centre, 71 Ashfield Rd, London N4 1NY.

In a world where individuals and communities are connected via real-time technologies in a state of mutual hyper-presence, what does it mean that our interactions can be traced and viewed by people unknown to us? Can we claim these effects to consciously produce new realities and create new adventures beyond given structures and stories? Can we remix our realities?

REFF – Remix The World! Reinvent Reality! offers tools and strategies to explore different ways of ‘being’ with others physically and virtually to intervene in the world. Let’s see what we can do…” Furtherfield. Continue reading

Daybreak, forever: Inviting Aussies and Kiwis to Participate

Ragnar Helgi Ólafsson and Pall Thayer currently have a piece on exhibition at the Icelandic National Gallery titled Daybreak, forever. It uses live audio streams from the Locusonus project to follow the rising sun around the globe as an audible experience. Although Western Europe is well represented, Locusonus could use some more streams to tighten the circle. It would be especially nice if they had some streams in Australia and New Zealand. So if anyone on this list, residing in Australia or New Zealand, would like to participate in the project, you can find info here.
