A Walking Tour for Multiple Voices and Portable Phones

Pedestrian: A Walking Tour for Multiple Voices and Portable Phones–by Geek Ink–is a performance piece that takes New York audiences on walking tours in groups of ten on three separate routes led by three actresses through the East Village. It allows the participants to “eavesdrop” on cell phone conversations exploring the topic of loss – from lost tempers and lost loves to lost identities. Pedestrian explores the public airing of private speech, which occurs daily on the streets of New York. Connected by cell phones, the actresses invite the audience to overhear their conversations, confessions, and revelations; in fact, all participants are connected by a conference call service, allowing each tour participant to hear all three tour guides simultaneously. The audience follows these women through the streets, taking a journey through the emotional lives of the tour leaders, while interacting with many East Village landmarks that may have gone unnoticed until now.

Installation

Cover_installation.gif

Virtual Constructs Real Space

Installation is a system designed by Simon Greenwold at the Aesthetics and Computation Group at the MIT Media Lab, consisting of a viewing window and a stylus with which users can create virtual forms and install them permanently into a real space. By tracking the position and orientation of the stylus and the window itself, we are able to calibrate virtual coordinates with real viewing position. Virtual objects created in the system respond as though they were physically in the space of the room. Once objects are placed in the envrionment, they will stay there in perpetuity, changing and growing like plants in the air.” View demo. [via]

Screen-Wall

When Bricks Become Pixels

“When bricks become pixels, the tectonics of architecture becomes informational”- Marcos Novak: Screen-Wall–by Ruth Ron–challenges the conventions of public and private spaces in a museum. The ‘service’ or ‘private’ parts of the museum, such as the archives, offices or the guard booth, which are traditionally closed to the public, become the subject of the display, reversing the relationship of ‘watching’ and ‘being watched’. Influenced by the expending presence of surveillance in our daily life, we appropriate the panoptic gaze onto concealed parts of the museum to become the content of the exhibition display.

The opaque solidity of physical architecture is challenged by multiple layers of the screen, the image of the wall and the transition to live video feed. The distance between remote spaces in the museum collapses, and digital and visual continuity is created. The network portal extends beyond the properties of the flat digital screen to become a reactive ‘window’ to unexpected places.

TeleSon: Invention#8 by Chris Brown

reactable.jpg

Networked reacTables

TeleSon: Invention#8 is composed for four musicians playing two networked “reacTables”, one each in Barcelona and in Linz, Austria (ICMC2005). The reacTable is a new electronic music instrument developed at the Music Technology Group in Barcelona by a research team headed by Sergi Jorda. Brown explains: ‘I have interfaced my own synthesis engine, written in SuperCollider3, to the reacTable’s visual and gestural interface, thus composing my own synthesis environment with its own rhythmic and tonal character. Like the other works in my “Inventions” series (recorded on Pogus CD “Talking Drum”), this piece involves polyrhythms, computer networks, and improvisation. Like “Invention #5” (1999), it also involves musicians collaborating at great physical distance from each other’. See Sounding the Net: Interview with Chris Brown by Peter Traub.

Mobile Art Projection Program: Call for Proposals

ANAT is now calling for proposals from South Australian artists or artists groups, for dynamic temporary public projection artwork. Four artists or artist groups will be commissioned to produce projection works that are experimental, conceptual, and respond to Surface Tension’s guerrilla-style approach of presentation and use of mobility to take art to the audience. Selected artists will present their Projection Artworks consecutively in the period November 2005 – March 2006. To download a Surface Tension program outline and proposal guidelines, please go to the ANAT website, ‘Surface Tension: ANAT’s mobile projection project call for proposals’ News Item.

Activated Spaces + Crawling through Network Cable

Sounding Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg

“Abstract: Successful political sound art comes in a variety of forms. Interactive sound art can upend entrenched social relations around the consumption of media. Work articulating obscured spacial or social power dynamics can provoke deep thought and discussion. Work incorporating explicit documentary material can dovetail successfully with social movements, enlivening events, and serving as a mechanism for fundraising, awareness raising, or mobilization. These different tracks can be employed, singly, or in combination to make effective political art work for a variety of settings. This thesis follows one sound artists’ path through the multiplicity of potentially rewarding approaches to creating artwork with political and social themes.” From Activated Spaces by Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg.

Hard Drive Orchestra

frued_drives02_150.jpg

Radio Taking Place Between the Ears and Behind the Eyes

Hard Drive Orchestra–by Fundamental Radio (August Black and Markus Seidl)–is a sculpture and instrument that can be programmed to run autonomously as a stand-alone installation or played live and intuitively in a performance taking control commands via OSC, midi, or some other input protocol.

The hardware component consists of a mobile computer containing 8-16 IDE and SCSI hard drives of various ages of computing history and therefore of various sonic properties. The mechanical sounds of the drives are recorded live with 8-16 separate contact microphones, cleaned by a noisegate, and amplified over loudspeakers.

Spreading the Space of Radio Production Amongst its Listeners

“Abstract: Userradio mixes the new technologies of personal communication with “old” broadcast radio technology. It is a set of tools for collaborative networked audio production, where an unlimited number of individuals can mix multiple channels of audio simultaneously and together from anywhere on-line using a standard flash-capable browser. The audio output of the application is broadcast on terrestrial FM radio and the users are ideally within the broadcast diameter.” From Userradio by August Black.

Community Media:

0521796687.jpg

People, Places, and Communication Technologies

While transnational conglomerates consolidate their control of the global mediascape, local communities struggle to create democratic media systems. This groundbreaking study of community media combines original research with comparative and theoretical analysis in an engaging and accessible style. Kevin Howley explores the different ways in which local communities come to make use of various technologies such as radio, television, print and computer networks for purposes of community communication and considers the ways these technologies shape, and are shaped by, the everyday lived experience of local populations. He also addresses broader theoretical and philosophical issues surrounding the relationship between communication and community, media systems and the public sphere. Case studies illustrate the pivotal role community media play in promoting cultural production and communicative democracy within and between local communities. This book will make a significant contribution to existing scholarship in media and cultural studies on alternative, participatory and community-based media. — Community Media: People, Places, and Communication Technologies, Cambridge University Press, 2005
