Nula: Filecasts

Nula is the source of a ser­ies of file­casts, each con­sist­ing of an as­semb­lage of sounds, im­ages, or words, made avail­ab­le for down­load, shar­ing, com­men­tary, and fur­ther man­i­pu­la­tion. File­casts are gen­er­al­ly, tho not ex­clus­ive­ly, cre­ated from found ma­ter­ial. It would per­haps be coun­ter­pro­duc­tive to de­lim­it what this ma­ter­ial may con­sist of, or what trans­for­ma­tions it may un­der­go. the ten­den­cy here will simp­ly be to let the work speak for it­self as much as it can.

The word ‘nula’ means ‘zero’ or ‘nothing’ in several languages; notably Czech, which I point out only because I am based in Prague. The esthetic impulse behind Nula emphasizes “showing” or “alluding” rather than “expressing”. Continue reading

Live Stage: PubliCamp [uk London]

Critical Practice presents Parade: PublicnessPubliCamp :: July, 5, 2009; 2:00 – 5:00 pm :: Kennington Park, Kennington, London SE11, England.

We intend to explore different conceptions of the publicness — historical, cultural, political, social, architectural and digital. We aim to develop a shared ethic towards the notion of public goods and will not be deterred by the disagreeable, contentious, messy, inefficient, live, improvisatory and provisional nature of Being in Public. Public, common or shared resources are like muscles, they become stronger with exercise. Continue reading

Departures: L.A. River

[Images by KCET] Departures: L.A. River — An Online Documentary Mapping 52 Miles of the River :: Narrated by river advocates, residents and political figures :: Co-Produced by KCET Web Stories and Friends of The Los Angeles River with Local Students.

Once home to wild animals and wildlife, the Los Angeles River provided desperately needed water to the region. Until the 1930s, that is, when the Army Corps of Engineers began the process of paving 80% of the river, turning it into a ribbon of concrete. With the launch of Departures: L.A. River, the Los Angeles River comes alive through an intimate collection of interactive panoramas showing the incredible diversity connected with a nearly extinct natural resource that locals now work to restore.

Low Lives: Call for Artists

Low Lives: Call for Artists — Deadline: June 30, 2009.

Synthetic Times: Media Art China

Synthetic Times: Media Art China — Edited by Fan Di’an and Zhang Ga: We live in a world that operates on bits and bytes. Reality has become synthetic, a convergence of the material and the immaterial. The synthetic power of new media art — integrative, interdisciplinary, interactive — expresses the blurred boundary between the physical and the digital. Synthetic Times collects new media art created since 2001 by artists and art collectives from nearly thirty countries. These innovative and groundbreaking works investigate how we perceive reality and what it means to be human on the threshold of human-machine symbiosis.

The artworks in Synthetic Times (which accompanies a milestone exhibition at the National Art Museum in China, an Olympics Cultural Project) explore a trajectory of uncanny visions ranging from the desire to transcend the corporal to the construction of synthetic worlds; from telematic dreaming to transgenic hybrids; from whimsical apparatuses to the deadpan gaze of magnetic fields.

“Local Report” by Robert Whitman

Local Report is the latest in a series of communication media works that Robert Whitman has produced since 1972.

The basic structure of these works was for 30 people assigned to different parts of the city or calling area to call at five minute intervals and describe something they saw at the moment; these reports were then broadcast live. Whitman put the incoming calls directly on the air as they came in, his only intervention being to end the call when, as he puts it, “The caller has produced a coherent image.” Ninety calls over a thirty minute period produced the final work. The news reports capture the nature of a specific place and time, revealing it to audience and participants alike. Continue reading

Reblogged The Art of Networks and Networks as Art

QR PostcardA performance / presentation @ Networks, 12th Annual Subtle Technologies Festival, Sunday June 14th, 2009, 10:00am (by Garrett Lynch).

Presentation as performance

The Art of Networks and Networks as Art was is the title of a performance / presentation given at the 12th Annual Subtle Technologies Festival on the theme of Networks. The performance / presentation focused on the development of my work over the last five years and the role of networks within artistic practice. This was detailed in it’s most obvious sense of works ‘online’ but also explored ideas of interactive models within new media as networks in themselves between artist, artwork and user (see diagram below).

ON MAPPING: Lev Manovich + Jenny Marketou

These e-mails between Lev Manovich, San Diego and Jenny Marketou, New York were from January 25 to February 4, 2002 (originally published in Breeder #5 (Athens) 2002):

Lev Manovich wrote: Lets begin by talking about mapping. I see mapping one data set into another, or one media into another, as one of the most common operations in computer culture. For instance, it forms the basis of a whole field of visualization — taking the results of an experiment and visualizing them as a van animation; or taking statistical data and presenting it as a 3-D shape; and so on. These kinds of mappings are also common in new media. For instance, I have come across a few projects where network traffic was translated into music. Continue reading
