Comments (0) Commission: “The Xanadu Hijack” by Curt Cloninger Commission: The Xanadu Hijack by Curt Cloninger:

Curt and Jordan Cloninger have created a logo that will hijack the proper noun “Xanadu” in Google Images; so that a Google Images search for “Xanadu” returns a tiled collage of Xanadu Hijack logos. At the Xanadu Hijack website, various versions of the Xanadu logo are available for participants to download, manipulate, watermark, tag, and upload. Or, they can simply use the social media buttons to tag and repost the logos. Curt has also provided several pre-watermarked, Xanadu-related images – Olivia Newton John, Kubla Khan, Citizen Kane, Ted Nelson, the New Jersey Mall – which can be reposted and tagged as well. If you want to hijack Cloninger’s hijack by associating the logo with cats or unicorns that would be wonderful. Participants who demonstrate a lot of network influence or just have clever ideas will be paid, until the money runs out. Continue reading

Comments (0) Commission: “Making Love: Poetry In Motion” by OMTA Commission: Making Love: Poetry In Motion by OMTA (Omer and Tal Golan)

We cannot predict whom we will fall in love with, where s/he will be from, or in what language we will hear words that stir our emotions and excite us to our core. Poetry In Motion appropriates real time tweets about love from and — by using semantic analysis algorithms — generates an endless, variable poem based on random choices made by each reader’s computer. Thus, Poetry In Motion relies on global telecommunications networks and social groups to crowdsource poetry and reveals all the love in the world at any given moment. Continue reading

Radius: “Millionth” by James Chinneck [sl Ljubljana + online]

Radius Episode 60: Millionth by James Chinneck :: Duel-Site Broadcast: And Sometimes Gravity, Adds Donna, 88.9-FM, Chicago, US :: February 1, 2015, 1:00 - 4:00 pm (CST) + radioCONA:Zima FM, 88.8MHz, Ljubljana, Slovenia and streaming :: February 19, 2015, 7:00 pm (CET).

Millionth was constructed by simply using a telephone and audio recording equipment. James Chinneck systematically recorded individuals saying the word “hello” when they first answered their telephone. Chinneck charted his telephonic journeys through 227 different countries, working on condensing the world’s population at a ratio of 1:1000000 to generate a total of 6348 people. Each individual “hello” has been edited into a sequence, which includes every country in descending order of population size, one after the other, resulting in a 43 minute audio track.

“Awkward_NYC/Awkward_Everywhere” by Zannah Marsh

Turbulence Commission: Awkward_NYC / Awkward_Everywhere by Zannah Marsh:

“Awkward_NYC” is now “Awkward_Everywhere.” It is a collaborative online map for reporting social accidents and small interpersonal traumas that occur unexpectedly in public spaces. Anyone can add a story to the map. The map pinpoints sites in the New York Metropolitan or anywhere in the world where misunderstandings, outbursts, physical altercations, arguments between friends or strangers, and romantic spats or break-ups have occurred. It taps into the confessional, voyeuristic, narrative impulses that typify online behavior and subverts the notion of mapping as reductive, objective, and authoritative. As stories are added to the map, a series of data visualizations depicting the emotional terrain of various cities will be generated. Continue reading

Hz Journal: Emergence in the Social Web

[A network of nodes (29)] Emergence in the Social Web by Liat Berdugo:

Abstract: Complex systems sometimes exhibit what’s known as emergence — the phenomenon wherein the whole is more than the sum of its parts. For instance, ants acting individually are mindless, but collectively they self-organize to form intelligent colonies with intricate behavior patterns. I explore whether something similar can be said of the way that a collective consciousness seems to emerge from the nodes in a social web. I begin by showing why emergence is a compelling way to understand what happens on the social web, and examine meme generation and social movement formation, specifically, as resultant emergent phenomena. The emergence of social phenomena is nothing new — it happens in offline communities like family units, corporations, and cities. Continue reading
