Reblogged The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google”

The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google” by Owen Mundy,

As part of this year’s Transmediale festival in Berlin, media artist Johannes P. Osterhoff organized an online collaborative performance of search engine queries, simply titled, “Google.” For one week, Osterhof convinced myself and 36 other participants to add a unique search method to our default web browsers so that everything we “googled” — from the personal to the mundane — became instantly visible online at Continue reading

Reblogged Unlike Us: What to expect in 2012

Unlike Us: What to expect in 2012 by Marc Stumpel:

2011 was an exciting year with the Occupy movement, Facebook’s settlement with FTC’s charges, Europe versus Facebook, decentralized social media alternatives developing, critical social media art, more awareness about tracking and a significant wave of criticism after Facebook’s new changes. Moreover, the Unlike Us research network was launched at the Cyprus University of Technology, Limassol, where the first conference was held.

Now in 2012, we are looking forward to Unlike Us #2 in Amsterdam. Artists, designers, scholars, activists and programmers will gather to analyze the economic and cultural aspects of dominant social media platforms and discuss alternative, decentralized social media software. Continue reading

Reblogged Post #HASTAC2011 Reflections…

So What Again Is HASTAC? Post #HASTAC2011 Reflections on a Network Founded on a Theory That’s a Practice by Cathy Davidson, originally posted on HASTAC:

We have just finished two and a half glorious days at the University of Michigan. Soon we at HASTAC Central will write a formal thank you blog to all the incredible planners, organizers, and participants of our fifth HASTAC Conference, Digital Scholarly Communications, sponsored by the University of Michigan Institute for the Humanities, the Mellon Foundation, and the Kidder Residency in the Arts, and led by two of our HASTAC Steering Committee members, Danny Herwitz and Julie Thompson Klein. And many others. Incredible event.Incredible people.

Reblogged Performative Wearables

[Image: Agata Olek] Performative Wearables, originally posted on V_2: Since wearable technology pieces are often designed to be interactive, and in most cases are presented to an audience in some sort of way, we thought it was interesting to do a thought experiment: can every ‘wearable’ be considered a performative work, and can this approach help to design and create more meaningful projects?

When Valerie Lamontagne was ‘researcher-in-residence’ at V2_Lab, we dedicated two editions of the eTextile Workspace to the topic of ‘Performativity‘. Continue reading

Reblogged Poser, invading digital photo frames

“In a very short time since they appeared, digital photo frames have become so popular that they now regularly invite aesthetic experimentation. In his recent project Poser, Constant Dullaart has offered an ironic view of this media. Slipping inside the device, the artist has designed some chroma keys of himself and, using a cinematic technique, he has added himself into some group portraits found online (one of the distinguishing features of the Dutch artist is his reworking of material from the web). From Leon Battista Alberti onwards, art history is littered with attempts to overcome the physical limits of the frame - to enter into or move beyond it.

Therefore the originality of Poser is not to be found in this invasion, but rather in the artist’s intention to inhabit contemporary technological devices, to become part of them and to understand their specific natures. Continue reading
