Predicting In Augmented Space

Live Architectures: Predicting In Augmented Space by Chiara Passa:

Live Architectures is a series of digital and interactive artworks created over time in a wide-range production developed to reshape the indoor and the outdoor architecture and environmental places as well as the ‘digital environment’, transforming it into something alive and vibrant. This series of site-specific artworks is created and usable exclusively on Google Earth. Through the augmented reality technology, the artwork aims to create an extemporary-temporary virtual land-art, constructing a sort of “mise en abyme” or “droste effect”, in which an element shifts the other in depth, merging the Google earth environment with the augmented area in order to create a new space.

Not Here Not There

Not Here Not There :: Call for Papers - Deadline: January 31, 2012.

Leonardo Electronic Almanac in collaboration with The Samek Art Gallery and with Kasa Gallery announces a special issue titled: Not Here Not There. This issue arises out of the territory between two cultural streams.

In the 1960’s, artist Robert Morris articulated the strategy of representation summarized by ‘site vs. non-site’ whereby certain artworks were simultaneously abstract and representational and could be site-specific without being sited. In the 1990’s re-de-materialized the art object and found new ways to suspend the artwork online, between (web)site and non-site. Continue reading

Place Making and The Art of Engagement

Place Making and The Art of Engagement by Linda Carroli, ArtsHub, October 10, 2011:

Urban innovation can mean or refer to many things and there’s no shortage of ideas about how to make cities better. As the theory and more deterministic ‘forecasting’ goes, cities must get better if they are to foster and sustain the types of globalised knowledge and creative economies that will underwrite the future. However, there can be both disagreement and diversity in how to understand what better and development actually mean in and for the urban environments.

Two recent Australian publications reveal some of that diversity by presenting a series of case studies in community engagement, site specificity and place. Continue reading

“Mountain Ghosts” by Halsey Burgund

Mountain Ghosts by Halsey Burgund :: until mid-November :: Galleries of Contemporary Art, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.

Mountain Ghosts is a site-specific sound art installation that infuses the entire University of Colorado / Colorado Springs campus with a location-based layer of audio created collectively by the artist and participants. Building on Burgund’s interest in systems, collected voices, and participation, Mountain Ghosts explores sound as fundamental to our experiences of space, place and history. Participants use a custom smartphone app to make audio recordings that the Mountain Ghosts system then codes by location and immediately assimilates into a collective databank for other visitors to access.
