Participatory Composition: Video Culture, Writing, and Electracy

Participatory Composition: Video Culture, Writing, and Electracy by Sarah J. Arroyo:

Like. Share. Comment. Subscribe. Embed. Upload. Check in. The commands of the modern online world relentlessly prompt participation and encourage collaboration, connecting people in ways not possible even five years ago. This connectedness no doubt influences college writing courses in both form and content, creating possibilities for investigating new forms of writing and student participation. In this innovative volume, Sarah J. Arroyo argues for a “participatory composition,” inspired by the culture of online video sharing and framed by theorist Gregory Ulmer’s concept of electracy.

Electracy, according to Ulmer, “is to digital media what literacy is to alphabetic writing.” Continue reading

Arcade Cabinet Curation

Arcade Cabinet Curation :: Curate a video game cabinet for the Cooperative Gaming Co-op :: Call for curators — Deadline: July 30, 2012.

As part of the Zero1 Biennial, John Bruneau and James Morgan are bringing together a wide range of game developers to show in a classic golden age setting. We are building a half a dozen arcade cabinets and collecting a few others from the area.

We were inspired by Anna Anthropy’s message that everyone should make games, and by conversations that we have had with her about the place of the arcade and playing in public.

Curators will be welcome to put what they like into their cabinet, solicit people, choose them or even use the games from people they know or admire. The point is to curate along the lines of a theme that will then be represented by the cabinet in a larger context. Continue reading

Comments (0) (Public Access Digital Media Archive) - short for Public Access Digital Media Archive - is an online archive of densely text-annotated video material, primarily footage and not finished films. The entire collection is searchable and viewable online, and is free to download for non-commercial use.

We see as a way of opening up a set of images, intentions and effects present in video footage, resources that conventions of video-making, editing and spectatorship have tended to suppress, or leave behind. This expanded treatment then points to other, political potentials for such material, and leads us into lesser-known territory for video itself… beyond the finite documentary film or the online video clip.

“Talking in string” by Chiara Passa

Talking in string, by Chiara Passa, is a generative video installation inspired by the ‘Rotor’, famous Luna Park rotating carousel. Talking in string develops into a cylindrical space around the audience that create the installation itself in real time by sending text messages via Twitter. Also the not present public on site can participate as well by sending messages by their remote Internet locations. The sentences run a recording system are displayed immediately. The texts speedily rotate around the space, changing direction, color, font, and some of them ramble in absence of gravity. The generated phrases, dissolving and wrapping themselves around disoriented people who are watching as texts become ’strings’, no longer readable. These ‘strings’ slowly disappear as light’s bundles surrounding the body of the spectators like colored trails left by comets or as if we were inside of Newton’s disk. Video preview. Images.”

Live Stage: Carrie Bodle - Wavelines [us Seattle]

Carrie Bodle: Wavelines :: May 18 - July 14, 2012 :: Artist Reception: May 18; 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm :: CoCA Georgetown Gallery, Seattle Design Center, 5701 6th Ave S., Seattle, WA (Facebook event page).

Bodle creates a new video and sound installation for CoCA based on two previous works, Sewing Sonification (2009) and Waveforms (2010). Both projects use data from ecosystem models along the Washington Coast to create a multimodal experience of art through scientific research. In CoCA’s 4,600 sq. ft. space, a six-channel video installation layers five dimensions of oceanographic data on large semi-transparent textile screens, while a five-channel sonification engages viewers/ listeners with references to underlying systems of data.
