June 11, 12, & 13 online at 19:00 (CET), 1:00 pm (EDT) (find your local time) Streaming by Ivan Chabanaud/

Annie and Martina will investigate the performative potential of real time computer-mediated communication. By listening to each other’s gestures (in a visual and acoustic sense) they will choreograph each other’s actions, despite Annie being in Montpellier, France and Martina in Berlin, Germany. Will they be able to create an intimate space within two webcam windows framed side-by-side on their screens? What will emerge when two vulnerable bodies, their silences, fragmented communication, a few mundane objects, and a lot of uncertainty collide? Continue reading

Live Stage: Going Feral on the Net [us Cambridge, MA]

Going Feral on the Net: the Qualities of Survival in a Wild, Wired World :: May 15, 2012; 12:30 pm (ET) :: Berkman Center for Internet & Society, 23 Everett St, Cambridge, MA + webcast live :: RSVP Required.

How do we balance the empowering possibilities of the networked public sphere with the dark, unsettling, and even dangerous energies of cyberspace? Matthew Battles blends a deep-historical perspective on the internet with storytelling that reaches into its weird, uncanny depths. It’s a hybrid approach, reflecting the web’s way of landing us in a feral state — the predicament of a domestic creature forced to live by its imperfectly-rekindled instincts in a world where it is never entirely at home.

Radius 22: “Radio Tune” by Public Domain [online]

Radius 22: Radio Tune by Public Domain:: April 1, 6, 8, and 13 at 6:00 pm CST.

Public Domain takes after its name sake, the public domain, and views, manipulates, edits, and comments on material found within it. Public Domain uses material from radio, records and the internet. The work often mirrors the collective unconscious through the use of voyeurism and dark humor. The resulting work is a collage of reality, time, and experiences.

Public Domain is Jane Burton and Doris Lake, a duo based in central London, UK. They often listen to the bells of Big Ben. Public Domain uses collage and montage to reflect upon the things they love, and simultaneously place them in ridicule. Continue reading
