networked.jpgRead | Write Remix and the Rouelles of Media Production by Mette Birk, Mark O’ Cúlár, Owen Gallagher, Eli Horwatt, Martin Leduc, Eduardo Navas, Tara Zepel — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: Remix and the Rouelles of Media Production explores concepts of remixing not only in content and form, but also in process. The aim of the collaboration is to evaluate how the creative process functions as a type of remix itself in a period when production keeps moving toward a collective approach in all facets of culture. The emphasis on video remixing is the result of a collaborative rewriting activity among the contributors, who each wrote independent paragraphs that went through constant revisions once combined as a single text.

Live Stage: Wikipedia Art Remix [us NYC]

Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert’s Wikipedia Art Remix + performances & screenings by Ryan V. Brennan, Genevieve White, Adam & Ron :: August 19, 2010′ 6:00 pm (Beginning 6:00 PM (come a little early for a Wikipedia Art Remix treat!) :: Benrimon Contemporary, 514 West 24th Street, 2nd floor, New York.

For Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert’s Wikipedia Art Remix, two actors perform a scene appropriated from Edward Albee’s play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. The dialogue between the iconic characters George and Martha incorporates highlights from the Articles for Deletion page of Wikipedia Art, an intervention by Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern on Wikipedia, so the couple’s argument becomes one about whether or not art can exist on Wikipedia.

What Now? The Imprecise and Disagreeable Aesthetics of Remix

Fibreculture Journal # 15: What Now? The Imprecise and Disagreeable Aesthetics of Remix :: From the Editorial:

It became a minor phenomenon during 2007. By September 2009 it was a virus out of control. Described in Wired as a “popular internet meme” (Wortham, 2008), the obsessive serial mash-up of a key sequence from Oliver Hirschbiegel’s 2004 film of the last days of Adolf Hitler, Der Untergang (The Downfall), is suggestive of the cultural logic of the contemporary formation known as remix. Remix culture is comprised of what could loosely be termed amateurs and professionals engaged in the practice of creatively re-using found material. The distinction is useful in identifying the aesthetic and material differences between dedicated intermedia remix artists (Negativland, Martin Arnold, Craig Baldwin, Soda_Jerk), artists who incorporate elements of remix into a broader audiovisual practice (Philip Brophy, Candice Breitz, Christian Marclay, John Zorn) and the vernacular audio-visual mash-up/remake/dub/scratch aesthetics associated with a broad range of online practices.

直接当下:网络文化与现实诗学

networked.jpg直接当下:网络文化与现实诗学 by Kazys Varnelis; Chinese Translation by Lily & Honglei:

在整个九十年代,数字计算和网络技术在很大程度上只应用于办公室工作,其文化影响仅限于个别专有领域的爱好者。如果说这十年的新媒体艺术形成了一种非常重要的艺术亚文化,它基本上还是孤立和自我参照的,部分原因是由于艺术家们对黑客文化的迷恋,由于长期以来格林伯格主义者 (Greenbergian) 的艺术审察, 还由于艺术机构将其边缘化. 在电脑离开有限的用户群体, 成为有广泛社会功能之前,瓦克﹒寇司克 (Vuk Cosic),朱迪(Jodi),阿列克谢﹒舒利金 (Alexei Shulgin),和希思﹒班廷 (Heath Bunting) 等艺术家重演了二十世纪初的前卫战略,同时将图形与八十年代黑客文化的程序演示平等化[1].

今天,相比之下,数字技术,是日常生活中的明确无误的存在,并逐渐与地来自主流社会的需要和公约不可分割的. 网络文化是一个广泛的社会文化的转变,就像后现代性,并不限于科技发展或“新媒体” [2]. 正因为数字和网络技术的成熟与当代文化是不可分割的, 我们必须在更宽广的背景下理解其, 事实上, 这甚至比电视产生于后现代的现象更令人瞩目. 今天, 可以说, 所有的艺术都是网络艺术的一种延伸.

“After Media (Hot and Cold)” by Eduardo Navas

[Image capture, July 11, 2009, http://hulu.com] The following text was originally published during the month of August, 2009 as part of Drain’s Cold issue… The text is republished in full on Remix Theory with permission.

In 1964 Marshal McLuhan published his essay “Media Hot and Cold,” in one of his most influential books, Understanding Media.[1] The essay considers the concepts of hot and cold as metaphors to define how people before and during the sixties related to the ongoing development of media, not only in Canada and the United States but also throughout the world.[2] Since the sixties, the terms hot and cold have become constant points of reference in media studies. However, these principles, as defined by McLuhan, have changed since he first introduced them. What follows is a reflection on such changes during the development of media in 2009.” Continue reading at Remix Theory >>
