“In Production (A Narrative Inquiry on Interactive Art)” by Nathaniel Stern

networked.jpgRead | Write In Production (A Narrative Inquiry on Interactive Art) by Nathaniel Stern — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

In Production (A Narrative Inquiry on Interactive Art) is a free, digital companion chapter to Interactive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance (2013, an Arts Future Book with Gylphi Press).

“In the book, I argue that interactive art suspends and amplifies the ways in which we experience embodiment as per-formed, relational, and emergent. I provide many in-depth case studies of contemporary artworks that develop a practice of embodied philosophy, setting a stage to explore how we inter-act and relate with the world. I offer a critical framework for analyzing interactive artworks and what’s at stake in our encounters with them, which can be applied to a wide range of complex and emerging art forms.

“Interactive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance” by Nathaniel Stern

Interactive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance by Nathaniel Stern, Arts Future Book, Gylphi Limited, 2013:

What is interactive art? Is this a genre? A medium? An art movement? Must a work be physically active to be classified as such, or do we interact when we sense and make sense? Is a switch-throw or link-click enough — I do this, and that happens — or must subjects and objects be confused over time? Is interaction multiple in its engagements (relational), or a one-to-one reaction (programmed)? Are interactive designs somehow more democratic and individualized than others, or is that merely a commercial strategy to sell products and ideas?

This book argues that interactive art frames moving-thinking-feeling as embodiment; the body is addressed as it is formed, and in relation. Continue reading

Remote Schmink-a-thon (Weather Data Make-Up Marathon): a performance/ installation by Ursula Endlicher :: June 22-23, 2012 (Streamed Live June 23) :: New Media Festival, Woodstock, Vermont.

A wireless wood creature (part mushroom/ part spider/ part unknown, possibly human) finds itself in a Woodstock, wondering which one. And just to be on the safe side, it inspects the current weather situation for five different U.S. Woodstocks. According to the “reports” it applies the appropriate make-up to be ready for the day: to fight off attackers, to attract insects, and to nourish itself with the day’s offered nutrients… Continue reading
