Leonardo Electronic Almanac Rekindled

future1.jpgLeonardo Electronic Almanac has inherited a large archive of papers, articles and information. This material was held in the archive as historical documentation and as part of the revamp of LEA we have decided to revisit this history and compare it with contemporary developments.

LEA rekindled 1 is the first historical comparative issue of the Leonardo Electronic Almanac on the history and contemporary developments at the intersection of art, science and technology. For this first issue of LEA rekindled, our editorial intention is to re-open a dialogue with those who participated and contributed towards building the history of contemporary art interactions with science and technology as well as with the new generations of artists, critical commentators, scientists and technology experts.

Live Stage: Archival Records [hk Hong Kong]

ebf3250-5d90-48e3-8471-1e4af4c76.jpgArchival Records @ Asia Art Archive, a sound installation by Cédric Maridet, Hong Kong :: exhibition from February 2, 2010 to May 5, 2010 :: Opening: February 11, 2010; 6.30 – 8:00 p.m :: Hollywood Centre 11th Floor, 233 Hollywood Road, Hong Kong.

It focuses on the realm bridging textual readings (of printed material) and their vocal counterparts, through multilingual audio recordings of excerpts from the collection, supplemented by ambient sounds at the Archive. This sound installation not only aims at exploring the idea of the Archive, but also rediscovering the mechanics of sensory experiences and aural cognition through a composed technological mediation of experience.

As they gather submissions, they will be placing them into a browsable tagging system based on criteria including: Sound Source (characteristics); Location (borough, neighbourhood, municipality); Date (time of day, month, day of week, year, season); Environment Type (park, metro, indoors, outdoors, etc…); Equipment (recording device, microphone, etc…). Files can be uploaded through the form on the ‘Uploads’ section of the website. Continue reading

“Pings” Archive Available

ping.jpgPINGS springs directly from the geographical distance between two collaborators. Working from their locales Simon Whitehead & Barnaby Oliver explore the physical space between them through rivers and air and a range of other terrains with their own qualities, such as the web, phone, post, and less tangible links of memory and synchronicity. An ongoing project archive is now available on the website. You can subscribe to PINGS as a podcast / RSS 2 feed from the website. And view the exchanges between the two as webpages.
