Picture This – Reinventing The Camera As A Social And Anti-Technological Object

[“Wifi Camera,” Sjölén, Haque, Somolai-Fischer, 2006] From Picture This — Reinventing The Camera As A Social And Anti-Technological Object by Jonah Brucker-Cohen, The Creators Project:

[…] “Examining the invisible proliferation of wireless networks that are permeating every location we inhabit comes another type of camera that takes images of the signals themselves. The “Wifi-Camera” (2010) by Bengt Sjölén, Adam Somlai Fischer, and Usman Haque is a camera that takes photos of locations that contain wireless transmissions in the way that a traditional camera captures spaces illuminated by visible light. The camera is meant to reveal all of the electromagnetic space that our mobile and portable devices create daily. From their description: “Radio waves at wifi’s wavelength behave similar to light in that they are reflected off almost all solid objects to varying degrees, just as when we see colors we see the light from a light source being reflected off an object into our eyes.” This effect is achieved by pointing a wireless antenna and measuring the signal strength throughout a viewing period to create an overall image…”

User Generated Content [uk Manchester]

Summary User Generated Content is an exhibition about social media, self-publishing and the virtual environments that we create for ourselves. We are interested in how these ‘highly accessible’ self-publishing tools and ‘user generated content’ has had an affect on creative practice in conjunction with the recent explosion of such sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Blogspot, YouTube, Vimeo etc. We want to find creative practitioners who are responding to the recent developments by removing them from the interface and transforming into a tangible form or experience. We will be documenting this process via our blog.

Call for Participation– Deadline: April 25, 2011 Continue reading

Reblogged “The Twitter Revolution Must Die” by Ulises Mejias

The Twitter Revolution Must Die by Ulises Mejias:

Have you ever heard of the Leica Revolution? No?

That’s probably because folks who don’t know anything about “branding” insist on calling it the Mexican Revolution. An estimated two million people died in the long struggle (1910-1920) to overthrow a despotic government and bring about reform. But why shouldn’t we re-name the revolution not after a nation or its people, but after the “social media” that had such a great impact in making the struggle known all over the world: the photographic camera? Even better, let’s name the revolution not after the medium itself, but after the manufacturer of the cameras that were carried by people like Hugo Brehme to document the atrocities of war. Viva Leica, cabrones! Continue reading

Extimacy: Art, Intimacy And Technology – curated by Pau Waelder, with Gazira Babeli, Clara Boj, Martin John Callanan, Grégory Chatonsky, Diego Díaz, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Laurent Mignonneau, Paul Sermon, Christa Sommerer, Carlo Zanni :: until May 1, 2011 :: Museum Es Baluard, Placa Porta Santa Catalina, 10, 07012 Palma, Spain.

Online Video Aesthetics: This theme seeks to explore various insights, explorations and arguments regarding the vast arena of online video aesthetics. Tackling the tenuous relationship between amateur and professional video production particularly with respect to the question of ‘quality’, have amateur and professional video grown closer, or are they still in competition, and what aesthetics, techniques, genres, structures, and so on, exist in the professional realm of online video, compared to the amateur?
