Turbulence Commission: INTERP by Jeff Thompson

Turbulence Commission: INTERP by Jeff Thompson:

INTERP is a series of digital sculptures generated by blending 100 unrelated photographs, placing them into simulated three-dimensional space, and importing them into photogrammetry software, tricking it into thinking that the photographs were of a single object. Thompson is interested in “useless” and culturally-derived data sets, so rather than use an arbitrary archive of photographs (a Google image search for a particular term, for example), it seemed more natural to use a finite set that he had generated himself (approximately 12,000 images when he began the project in 2012). Every photograph was used. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “[ openspace ] wilderness” by Andrew Lyman

Turbulence Commission: [ openspace ] wilderness by Andrew Lyman:

[ openspace ] wilderness is a virtual nature preserve for a deserted section of internet. It is inhabited by more than 6,000 blogs that have been silent for 6 or more years. Whereas abandoned neighborhoods of cities — like Detroit — are undergoing rewilding (to restore and protect natural processes), what manner of new life is possible for vacated internet spaces? Visitors to [ openspace ] wilderness are invited to tag and explore its contents, and engage with the park’s active population of predators and foragers. [ openspace ] wilderness is a finite and consumable space: it may be mapped and preserved, or overrun and overgrazed depending on the actions of its visitors. Read a review. Continue reading

Turbulence Spotlight: “MUPS” by Jhave

Turbulence Spotlight: MUPS by Jhave:

MUPS (MashUPs) is an online sonic mashup engine specifically designed to allow spoken-word poetry mp3s to interweave simultaneously as if a group of performers were speaking together. MUPS has been seeded with MUPS 1260 audio poems from the PennSound archives; it can play up to 32 streams simultaneously. In spite of the playful tone of the introduction, MUPS is intended as a digital augmentation in the study of prosody. As computational analysis advances it is feasible to foresee cultural heritage archives such as PennSound operating as sites where digital tools permit innovative explorations into the evolution of poetics.

Live Stage: A Little Less Conversation [nl Amsterdam]

A Little Less Conversation: A conference about exhibiting contemporary performance :: October 1, 2011; 1:30 - 4:30 pm :: de Appel arts centre, Auditorium, Temporary Stedelijk 2, Amsterdam :: Reservations required through reservations [at]

A Little Less Conversation will question, in an unusual and dynamic fashion, how contemporary performance art is exhibited. Ephemeral and immaterial in its nature, performance becomes tangible the moment it is exhibited, whether experienced live or through documents. Although it is first and foremost an art of the here and now, the widest access we have to a performance, paradoxically enough, is still based on objects and residual elements such as text, photography, audio or video.

remixthebook by Mark Amerika

remixthebook by Mark Amerika, University of Minnesota Press, September 2011:

A model of contemporary remixing and a groundbreaking reflection on digital media

Digital technology has transformed contemporary culture. New social media, hyperlinks, and cut-and-paste techniques have changed the way we write. E-books, which allow us to carry entire libraries with us, are bringing new browsing and reading habits. Digital editing and other on-the-fly postproduction processes have altered how we make music, films, and visual art. A key rhetorical trope employed in all aspects of digital media is the remix, the creation of innovative new works of visual, literary, and performance art through the mashup.

In remixthebook, Mark Amerika explores the mashup as a defining cultural activity in the digital age. Continue reading

Holiday! A Relaxed Augmented Reality Workshop [it Carrara]

On the History of Appropriative Collage

VARIATIONS #6. The Library, a podcast series by Jon Leidecker on the history of appropriative collage RWM MACBA:

In the sixth episode of this series of podcasts, we encounter the establishment of sound libraries, collections explicitly curated for further use: sound objects presented as authorless, unfinished ingredients. Though some libraries contain newly commissioned generic sounds, specifically designed for maximum flexibility, the most widely used sounds are often sourced from commercial recordings, freed from their original context to propagate across dozens to hundreds of songs. From presets for digital samplers to data CD ROMs to hip-hop battle records, sounds increasingly detach from their sources, used less as references to any original moment, and more as objects in a continuous public domain.
