Reorienting Narrative: E-lit as Psychogeography

[…] “In much of her work, writer/artist J. R. Carpenter fabricates hybrid places that are both “virtual” and attached to real world locales. Like Ernst’s bedroom, these online spaces contain objects whose appearance together makes sense only in the context of the artwork, in Carpenter’s case, multimedia stories. Combining intimate details, both autobiographical and appropriated, of characters’ lives with real-world maps and photo and video “documentation,” Carpenter’s works are narrative landscapes through which the reader meanders.” From Reorienting Narrative: E-lit as Psychogeography by Illya Szilak, Huffington Post.

PDPal – Mapping Without Terrain

PDPal – Mapping Without Terrain (2002-’04) by Julian Bleecker, Marina Zurkow , Scott Paterson, now part of Talk to Me: Design and the Communication between People and Objects, MOMA.

To cover the world, to cross it in every direction, will only ever be to know a few square meters of it… tiny incursions into disembodied vestiges, small incidental excitements, improbable quests congealed in a mawkish haze a few details of which will remain in our memory. And with these, the sense of the world’s concreteness… no longer as a journey having constantly to be remade, nor the illusion of a conquest, but as the rediscovery of a meaning, the perceiving that the earth is a form of writing, a geography of which we had forgotten that we ourselves are the authors.” – Georges Perec, Species of Spaces

PDPal was a series of public art projects for the Palm™ PDA, mobile phone and the web. It has pushed at the notion of mapping, attempting to transform your everyday activities and urban experiences into a dynamic city that you write. Continue reading

Avantgardes have only one sole moment; and the best thing that can happen to them is, in the fullest sense of the term, for them to have made their moment. — Guy Debord

Often described as “the last avantgarde”, the Situationist International occupies a central place within postwar European culture. Continue reading

“WalkSpace” by Conor McGarrigle

WalkSpace — by Conor McGarrigle — is an alternative walking art app for the iPhone to let you navigate the city in a new and unexpected way.

A selection of cultural and everyday routes are remapped to your current location, these routes range from cultural trails such as routes from James Joyce’s Ulysses to individual daily walks. Walks can be shared with photos and route maps and users can add their own routes to the app.

WalkSpace is designed to take you places you mightn’t otherwise go, to see familiar places in a new light opening a window to chance encounters and experiences. The app is inspired by the Situationist dérive acting as a locative media version of the classic experimental technique for re-enchanting the city. Continue reading

Sound, Listening and Place: Sonic Ecology

Organised Sound: An International Journal of Music and TechnologySound, Listening and Place, Volume 16, Number 3 :: Date of Publication: December 2011:: Publishers: Cambridge University Press :: Issue co-ordinator: Katharine Norman (katharine.norman [at] :: Call for Submissions — Deadline: March 1, 2011.

In his provocative book, Ecology without Nature: Rethinking Environmental Aesthetics, literary ecologist Timothy Morton suggests that much ecocritical nature writing makes the same Romantic assumptions it seeks to critique. He posits that a properly ecological view of the environment must challenge aestheticised views of nature, and be immersed rather than observational. How can, and does, sound-based music ‘rethink’ environmental aesthetics? How can sound-based music, and writing on it, contribute to the ecocritical debate? Continue reading

The London Psychogeophysics Summit [uk London]

The London Psychogeophysics Summit proposes an intense week-long, city-wide series of walks, fieldtrips, river drifts, open workshops and discussions exploring the novel interdisciplinary frame of psychogeophysics, colliding psychogeographics with earth science measurements and study (fictions of forensics and geophysical archaeology). Centred around SPACE, open events include practical workshops in building simple geophysical measurement devices from scrap materials, fieldtrips for study and long-term use of such devices in the city, measurement and mapping of physical and geophysical data during city-wide walks, deployment of strategic underground networks, fusion of fiction, derive and signal excursion, studies of river signal ecologies alongside short lectures and discussions of broad, interdisciplinary psychogeophysical themes.
