Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ‘sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. Continue reading

“How to Look at Artist Networks” by Angie Waller

Turbulence.org Commission: How to Look at Artist Networks by Angie Waller, with Jonathan Butterick:

How to Look at Artist Networks allows you to search 60,280 names in the Google Knowledge Graph to see if they are more closely connected to Marcel Duchamp or Pablo Picasso. Fame has muddied their differences, but not too long ago Duchamp and Picasso signified two distinct strains of artistic practice. Pointing to the two of them as the progenitors of all modern/post-modern art can introduce amusing, and hopefully enlightening, associations: for instance, you might find yourself contemplating the similarities between Sarah Palin’s and Duchamp’s practices.

Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To “play” the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke* Continue reading

Turbulence.org Commission: “The Xanadu Hijack” by Curt Cloninger

Turbulence.org 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

Turbulence.org Commission: “Global Direct” by Paolo Cirio

Turbulence.org Commission: Global Direct by Paolo Cirio: Promoting global, participatory democracy Global Direct is a political philosophy driven by information technology and the failure of current political systems to respond to the complexities, crises, and speed of contemporary life. Inspired by the tradition of utopian artistic visions, and informed by extensive research, Cirio’s fifteen organograms illustrate alternative protocols, procedures and policies for actualizing a global democratic system. On the website you will also find an invitation to “Suggest a Slogan,” video statements by prominent advocates of participatory politics, and more. The slogans and printed posters of the Global Direct campaign will be disseminated through social networks and in physical public spaces. Global Direct showcases how distributed networking technologies can be used for participatory decision-making, transparent accountability, and civil awareness. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “A More Subtle Perplex” by Ben Dean

Turbulence Commission: A More Subtle Perplex by Ben Dean [This is an open source project: you can contribute to the Perplex here]:

A More Subtle Perplex is an experiment in quasi-linguistic formalism, in gibberish. Borrowing and inverting techniques from computer science and analytic linguistics, it blindly strives to produce the outer appearance of language — to be all form and no content. The Perplex produces synthetic languages, or at least their syntactic forms, by writing letters to you. The production of the text and the production of a given language are interdependent.

The Emergent City [uk Brentford]
