[-empyre-] Contesting the Netopticon

[image: etay by jhave] January on -empyre- soft-skinned space: Contesting the Netopticon — Moderated by Simon Biggs (UK/Australia) with invited discussants Joseph Delappe, Marc Garrett, Davin Heckman, Patrick Lichty, Heidi May, Christina Spiesel and Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead :: Simon Biggs wrote:

Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) described an apparatus he termed the Panopticon, intended to condition the behaviour of subjects by disallowing them knowledge of whether they were being observed or not, causing them to fear they were. The space Bentham sought to control was the prison, seeking to replace capital punishment with a penal system focused on rehabilitation. Janet Semple’s study (Semple) evidences Bentham’s correspondence, suggesting an intent to establish for-profit penal institutions based on his Panoptic model. Continue reading

“The 3rdi Project” Now Live

[Image by Brad Farwell] Iraqi artist Wafaa Bilal’s latest work, The 3rdi Project, began capturing images on December 15 from the “third eye” in the back of Bilal’s head — a surgically-implanted camera. The 3rdi Project will be unveiled in Doha, Qatar as part of the Told/Untold/Retold exhibition that inaugurates the new Arab Museum of Modern Art near Education City, Doha’s intellectual hub.

The camera spontaneously transmits one image per minute to a website, with the inaugural images to be displayed in a custom-designed room in the Doha gallery. Bilal’s piece will be part of the museum’s new permanent collection, 20 years in the making, including more than 6,000 works by Arab artists from North Africa to the Gulf, from the 1920s to the present day.

Conspiracy Dwellings: Surveillance in Contemporary Art — Book Launch :: June 3, 2010; 6:00 – 8:00 pm :: Innovation Centre, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Procter Street, London, UK.

With the impact of surveillance on urban space, architecture, and citizenship this collection of essays helps us to understand the times we live in through art practices that consider the practical and theoretical status of surveillance through works that span the 70’s to the present day by artists from South Africa, Germany, Poland, Mexico, Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom. Their work addresses complex issues such as resistance, censorship, state control, civic liberties, human rights, CCTV and the use of digital software in strategies of counter-surveillance which propose new spectatorial positions, individual empowerment and entertainment.

Turbulence Commission: “Facetbook” by Liz Filardi

Turbulence Commission: I’m Not Stalking You; I’m Socializing: Facetbook by Liz Filardi

Anxious about the lack of ownership and access to my personal history, I explore how the structure of Facebook provides a literal construct of identity, framing the tension between the opacity of image and the multiplicity of being. For several weeks, I clear my Facebook profile of public information only to spontaneously repopulate the fields and clear them again, each time leaving a single link in my “About Me” section. Facebook users who select the link will open a flattened “archive” version of the previously visible profile.

This is the third component of I’m Not Stalking You; I’m Socializing; see Status Grabber and Black & White. Continue reading

The Talent Show [us Minneapolis]

[Image: Chris Burden, Wiretap (1977)] The Talent Show :: April 10 – August 15, 2010 :: Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN.

In recent years, television’s reality shows and talent competitions have offered people a conflicted chance at fame, while various kinds of Web-based social media have pioneered new forms of communication that people increasingly use to perform their private lives as public theater. During the same period, governments worldwide have asserted vast new powers of surveillance, placing unwitting “participants” on an entirely different kind of stage. Against this backdrop, The Talent Show, organized by Walker curator Peter Eleey, examines a range of relationships between artists, audiences, and participants that model the competing desires for notoriety and privacy marking our present moment.
