The Telepathic Table


Step 1: Select a Table

16 Beaver Group was invited to be part of Version<05 in Chicago. We will be given a table at the Zhou B. Center (Chicago) between 12:00pm and 8:00pm on Saturday April 30th and May 1st.

While we’ve tried to deal with placing representative objects on display, whether it is a wall, a table, or a pedestal, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to ‘represent’ what we do. Instead, we insist on ?activating? the social environment to which we?ve been invited. So having been offered this table has now triggered the following kinds of questions: How are tables social and political objects? How can this social aspect be enacted, rather than represented? What can we all do with a table, to fully take advantage of its potential? Are tables used for the same things in different cities around the world? What is the significance of tables in the date of May 1st?

Pertaining to the Everyday

Demotic–by Antoinette LaFarge + Robert Allen–is a performance work about American Memory, a single character whose many voices are woven together into a complex texture of language, sound, and music. It is an improvisation among different kinds of performers and different modes of reality, involving sound artists, a theater actor, and a group of Internet-based performers who improvise with text. As an ensemble work in which actors, avatars, and musicians find the music within a wide range of online voices, it is a kind of covert national anthem.

Demotic premiered at the Beall Center for Art and Technology, Irvine, CA, on July 29, 30, and 31, 2004. It was broadcast by KUCI 88.9 FM in Irvine on July 31, 2004, and all three performances were webcast live by UCI and Location One gallery, New York via RealMedia streaming audio.

Hybrid Apparatus for Social Interface

Psymbiote is a cyborg performance persona by isa gordon in collaboration with Jesse Jarrell & DEvan Brown. Adorned in titanium, latex, silicone, and electronic apparatus, isa/Psymbiote places herself in the eye of the storm: the conceptual terrain at the collision of bodies and machines, the mutation of her own identity through transformation of the body. Ultimately the project seeks to fully transform the artist into a seductively organic yet entirely unfamiliar hybrid organism, a human/machine chimera with fully integrated control systems. The costume is being animated with movement, sound, and light; activated by manual triggers, automatic body processes, and remote control. As her evolution progresses, Psymbiote appears in public spaces to stimulate dialogue regarding the future of technological enhancements to the human body.

Marcel Duchamp

Tout-Fait: The Marcel Duchamp Studies Online Journal, is the first academic journal in electronic format devoted to Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and his peers. The term “tout fait,” the standard French translation for “ready-made”, was a phrase used by the French mathematician Henri Poincar? (1854-1912), whose influence on Duchamp was crucial. Thus, Tout-Fait not only represents the intersection between art and science, but serves as a site promoting the interdisciplinary study across diverse fields of scholarship.

Tout-Fait brings together international scholars and writers from art and science backgrounds and many other fields of study. An interdisciplinary project, Tout-Fait is committed to presenting a variety of news features, articles, interviews, and short notes relating to Duchamp, one of modern art’s most important figures, and his circle of contemporaries.

Call for Radio Art-Proposals

Radio_Copernicus is an independent and transnational experiment. Its topic is the artistic use of radio’s electroacoustic spaces and materials as well as its diverse communication architectures and its metaphorical potential. Radio_C is dedicated to the multitude of aesthetic concepts and strategies of the digital age and will, at the same time, value the history of radio art and sonic media art in general. This will make Radio_C an art event in itself.

Radio_C will be on air from mid-July to the end of December 2005. The progam cooperates with media art and music festivals in Poland and Germany, such as “garage”/Stralsund, “Warsaw Autumn” and “Dis_Positionen”/Academy of Arts, Berlin. In early December 2005 the project will organize an international symposium dealing with the topic of independent artists’ radio in Wroclaw/Poland.

Places Which Perhaps Only the Poet Can Map

“We begin to walk. We feel the ground beneath our feet, the wind in our face. And as we do, we leave traces. We are involved in the landscape. We leave the prints of our body, the touch of flesh on metal and stone. We constantly wear things out, with our hands, our feet, our backs, our lips. And we leave the traces of singular actions: the unintentional, the random, the intimate, unplanned touch of history’s passing: we break twigs, move pebbles, crush ants… all the signs that trackers learn to read… And we discard things – we throw things away, we lose things – material which, in years to come, others will regard as artefacts, as the remains of past actions…

Connecting The Public Domain to the Artworld

Art-Domains, by Peter Luining, is a project that brings internet domain trade to an art context, thus penetrating the space of the white cube with one of the most lucrative virtual money making businesses, that of selling domainnames. For this particular project Peter Luining did over one year of research and became a domain broker himself. He bought and sold domain names to get the knowledge of how this trade works and also to get the best art related names available. Over the last year Luining aquired domain names like,,,, etc. The Art-Domains stand Luining will present at Art Frankfurt will connect virtual to real space and the public domain of trade to the artworld. At the moment Luining owns about 200 art related domain names that will be offered for the first time for sale at Art Frankfurt. Starting April 29th, art names will be offered for auction at eBay.
