Tantalum Memorial

Tantalum Memorial by Graham Harwood, Richard Wright, Matsuko Yokokoji at Transmediale: The telephone-installation is a memorial to the more than 3 million people who have perished in the complex wars that have gone on in the Congo since 1998, often referred to as the ‘Coltan Wars’. The ore coltan is used as the raw material for the metal tantalum, which is an essential component of mobile phones and computers. Therefore tantalum is coveted by dozens of international mining industries and local warring groups, and is nowadays more valuable than gold.

Built of electromagnetic ‘Strowger’ telephone switches, invented in 1938, and connected to a computer, the installation serves not only as a memorial, but functions also as a center of a social telephone network that is used by Congolese immigrants living in the UK. Continue reading

Corpora in Si(gh)te [de Berlin]

Corpora in Si(gh)te by doubleNegative Architecture :: January 27 – March 8, 2009 :: .CHB – Collegium Hungaricum, Berlin :: part of Transmediale.

Architecture as an environmental, spatial measuring machine Architecture is an intelligent corpus, a reflection of the environment surrounding itself. The information technology of Corpora in Si(gh)te by doubleNegative Architecture has maintained the mutality between architecture and environment in a virtual way through continuous spatial measurements, reflecting what C.i.S architecture believes to be the core principle of architecture.

doubleNegatives Architecture (dNA) sets up a number of sensors to form a mesh network throughout the target area – the building of Collegium Hungaricum Berlin – in order to collect and distribute real-time environmental information such as temperature, brightness, humidity, wind direction and sound.

“The Locative Dystopia” by Drew Hemment (2004)

During 2004 a number of international events will be looking at the emerging field of locative media, commencing with MobiloTopia at Transmediale.(1) One issue to be explored is the relationship between the interventions of geo hackers or artists and mechanisms of surveillance and control. 2004 opened with the cancellation of a number of commercial airline flights at the bequest of the US administration. This serves as a reminder of the mundane and arbitrary operation of power (“Its got to the point where if there’s anybody called Mohammed aboard, your flight’s got a problem” – senior airline source, quoted Guardian, 3 January 2004), and also of the renewed focus on surveillance and the ability to accurately locate potential suspects.

This is an obsession shared by locative media, albeit in another name. Locative media uses portable, networked, location aware computing devices for user-led mapping and artistic interventions in which geographical space becomes its canvas. Continue reading

Live Stage: Gender and Performativity [eg Azarita]

Gender and Performativity — A Curated Film Program by Lasse Lau :: January 3, 2009; 7:00 – 10:00 pm :: Alexandria Contemporary Arts Forum (ACAF), 10 Hussein Hassab Street, Flat 6, Azarita, Egypt.

Gender in this film series curated by Lasse Lau is about the notion of the stylized and performed. What Jacques Lacan described as the mirror stage (le stade du miroir), the place where we are informed by the norm of the mirror, which becomes the core identification of the subject ontology. A body constantly changes character by moving between private and public, physical and virtual, performed and real. The subject relates to this fragmentation and disharmony through the reflection of the mirror, relating to what we are wearing; how we act and what we desire. The essential question then becomes – who am I in this world? Continue reading

Live Stage: Lasse Lau [eg Azarita]

Artist Talk by Lasse Lau :: January 31, 2009; 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: Alexandria Contemporary Arts Forum (ACAF), 10 Hussein Hassab Street, Flat 6, Azarita, Egypt.

Lasse Lau (born 1974 Denmark) is a social activist, visual artist and filmmaker based in Brussels and Copenhagen. Agency of Public Resources (APR) is the imaginary common subject matter from which most of Lau’s recent interdisciplinary art projects originate. It is an agency that through the means of art and collectiveness accumulates on site knowledge, and through dialogue facilitates re-negotiations of space and democracy. His work continues to expose the amnesia of today’s crises in the global economy, and the parallel social displacement in spatial terms. Continue reading
