“Drama” by Timo Kahlen

Drama, by Timo Kahlen, is generated as the viewer plays and re-plays the film, to create individual and always different endings based on chance outcomes of the film’s miniature drama, a struggle of life and death, always different, again and again.

Chance: An Imaginary Tool For e-Arts

CIAC Magazine #39 — Chance: An Imaginary Tool For e-Arts featuring original artworks from five net artists: Gregory Chatonsky: My Voice and Phenomena; Mouchette aka Martine Neddam: Turkmenbashi, Mon Amour; Jhave: Give Me Your Light; Mark Amerika: Immobilité (Extraterrestrial Glitch Remix); Thomson & Craighead: Template Cinema.

“Video is the new net art” writes Mark Amerika on Twitter! Given that video art is considered to be one of net art’s original sources, this statement may appear somewhat contradictory. Yet it mirrors the works brought together for this exhibition as well as some art forms emerging on the Internet. Standing at the crossroads of video, cinema and hypermedia, such mixed experiences are revamped via current technological tools such as Video Jockey and animation softwares, webcams, YouTube, Flickr, streaming, cell phone.

Live Stage: Indeterminate Hikes [us NYC]

Indeterminate Hikes (IH) by ecoarttech @ Conflux 2010 :: October 9, 2010; 2:00 pm :: Meet at East Village, corner of Lafayette & Astor Place, New York City.

Indeterminate Hikes (IH) is an Android app that acts as your personal guide through New York City’s Urban Wilderness. With its database of hiking trails and by determining your location, IH will direct you to a series of Scenic Vistas, where you will have the opportunity to contemplate nature or wildness in a globalized, urban space and the overlapping terrains of psychological and environmental ecologies. At each Scenic Vista you are encouraged (1) to take 30 mindful breaths or a 5-minute break, and (2) after this meditative moment, capture and upload an image of your ecological experience to the IH website with your Smartphone. Continue reading

“Serendipitor” by Mark Shepard

Serendipitor is an alternative navigation app for the iPhone that helps you find something by looking for something else. The app combines directions generated by a routing service (in this case, the Google Maps API) with instructions for action and movement inspired by Fluxus, Vito Acconci, and Yoko Ono, among others. Enter an origin and a destination, and the app maps a route between the two. You can increase or decrease the complexity of this route, depending how much time you have to play with. As you navigate your route, suggestions for possible actions to take at a given location appear within step-by-step directions designed to introduce small slippages and minor displacements within an otherwise optimized and efficient route. You can take photos along the way and, upon reaching your destination, send an email sharing with friends your route and the steps you took. Continue reading

Conveyors: Towards Uncertain Address [se Helsingborg]

Conveyors (HBG): Towards Uncertain Address by Anders Weberg and Robert Willim :: Knutpunkten, Helsingborg, Sweden.

“In this space of flows the conveyors are brought to work … Download them to a mobile media player when you are there and find the spots where the material was recorded. The perceptions of your specific time spent at Knutpunkten will blend with the mediated sound and images from screen and headphones.”

A traffic hub is intended to provide predictable movement and transport. But you never quite know which motions and emotions will occur. So, how to depict or make sense of these kind of sites? In this case the traffic hub is Knutpunkten. How could experiences of everyday flow that merge with the unpredictable be illustrated here? Continue reading

Art in Odd Places 2010: CHANCE [us NYC]

Art in Odd Places 2010: CHANCE :: Open Call for Artist Submissions - Deadline: May 14, 2010.

Art in Odd Places (AIOP) invites artists working across disciplines to propose projects for the festival’s sixth installment (October 1-10, 2010). Taking place along 14th Street from Avenue C to the Hudson River in New York City, we encourage proposals that explore this location’s rich
history, configuration, and heterogeneous communities. The forthcoming edition of AiOP is informed by various interpretations of the term CHANCE, including proposition, luck, randomness, risk, and opportunity. Within this context, artists are given the opportunity to apply their practice to an unconventional structure — playing off the idiosyncrasies inherent to the urban plane. Continue reading

Random Access [kr Yong-in City]

Random Access: Six challenging takes on significant works by Paik and 2009 acquisitions in a new permanent exhibition :: March 13 - May 20, 2010 :: Nam June Paik Art Center, 85 Sanggal-dong, Giheung-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do, 446-905 Korea.

Random Access is a theme Paik addressed frequently throughout his practice. As early as 1963, when Paik presented his groundbreaking Exposition of Music Electronic Television, the concept of Random Access was present throughout and was even the title of one of the works. Of the many works Paik presented that were innovative in the way they questioned how viewers could engage with art as well as with information in general, Random Access and Record Shashlick were the most direct presentations of this ambition for a paradigm shift in information retrieval that was led by the viewer and yet arbitrary.
