“Robotica IV: Control Inside the Panopticon” by Stanza

Robotica IV: Control Inside the Panopticon is a playful robot installation – with performative and interactive aspects – that questions ideas of surveillance and tracking in popular culture using, robots, CCTV and sensor technologies.

Twelve robots — each named after prison inmate numbers — roam freely on a canvas on the floor of the Gallery. These robotic prisoners are sent out across the canvas with small tasks to complete. This robotic “wandering” is captured over the evening onto the canvas. They create their own painting in their own little prison.

The idea of the Panopticon originated with the English utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham as a prison design that would allow an observer to monitor all the prisoners at all times, without any prisoner being aware of whether he was being monitored or not. Continue reading

Meaning Liam Gillick

Meaning Liam Gillick with essays by Peio Aguirre, Johanna Burton, Nikolaus Hirsch, John Kelsey, Maurizio Lazzarato, Maria Lind, Sven Lütticken, Benoît Maire, Chantal Mouffe, Barbara Steiner and Marcus Verhagen (edited by Monika Szewczyk).

Liam Gillick (b. 1964) is a New York and London-based artist who emerged in the 1990s in the midst of paradigmatic political and cultural change. In the past two decades, he has developed a highly influential artistic practice around a discursive model that complicates object production and raises key social questions. This reader brings together diverse theorists, critics, historians, curators and artists to address Gillick’s work and its contexts. Continue reading

“Lexigraphs I” by Alex Dragulescu

Lexigraphs I — by Alex Dragulescu — is the first visualization from the Data Portraits series. Micro-blog authors use mobile text messaging or web interfaces to post short answers to the question What are you doing?, creating a stream-of-consciousness account of their daily encounters, musings, plans and actions. Using salient words from an individual’s postings, we visualize the topical and temporal patterns to create a portrait of the author. The words on the left side of the silhouette show the daily rhythm (one day is two seconds) while the right side shows a cumulative view. The application will generate the portrait for users with at least 100 posts. Users who write in languages in other than English might not be included or their wordlist might not be the most relevant/accurate because the selection algorithm is using an English language corpus.

DIGIMAG 44

Digicult presents DIGIMAG 44, May 2009:

“The distribution of technological knowledge and self-building were had their peak in the 50’s and 60’s in terms of electronic technologies: back then the market was full of boxes for people to follow instructions and build their own stuff, and amateur magazines that brought technological knowledge (with less filters compared to today) that was readily available. The resources were scarcer, but the transmission of knowledge was easier. Continue reading

[empyre] … slippage, becoming, reembodiment

Micha Cardenas wrote: […] As a coder and hardware hacker who is also a performance artist, I feel that the complexity of contemporary computing puts it into the realm of dynamic systems whose predictability is not simply linear. At the level of high level programming languages, there can be millions of instructions represented with a single line of C++ code, so the layers of complexity are deep. At the level of circuits, the movement of electricity can be erratic or smooth, even though much effort is put into channeling and taming it. The lines between smooth digital representation and messy analog electricity are not as clear as one might think.

At a workshop with Erin in the Sense Lab, we worked on relational movement exercises, with a partner, working on the kind of subtle listening to one’s own body moving and learning to feel the movement of one’s partner, in an exercise like tango, stomach to stomach. Continue reading

The Spectacle of the Everyday [fr Lyon]

Biennale de Lyon 2009: The Spectacle of the Everyday :: September 16, 2009 – January 3, 2010 :: La Sucrière, MAC Lyon, Fondation Bullukian, Entrepôt Bichat, Lyon, France.

In the age of globalisation, it is not enough for contemporary art to become a spectacular phenomenon embraced by almost all people in all corners of the world. It’s even more important to testify that artists and art communities from different parts of the globe are increasingly sharing the common understanding and strategies to reinvent themselves through engagements with the realm of everyday life. More and more artists are magically turning the ordinary into novel forms, meanings and usages while innovative collective mobilisations are brought to the forefront as a more democratic structure of art practices and their social functions. They are the core of the global art and culture scene today. Continue reading

Live Stage: Fluid Architectures [nl Amsterdam]

Fluid Architectures with Annja Krautgasser, Walter Langelaar, Jan Robert Leegte, Dirk Lüsebrink/Joachim Sauter, Mader Stublic Wiermann, Michael Najjar, Mark Napier, Marnix de Nijs, Stanza, Pablo Valbuena :: May 30 – August 16, 2009 :: Opening: May 29, 6:30 pm — Introduction into Fluid Architectures by Susanne Jaschko + Lecture: Digital Urbanism – Historical and Future Utopias of the Megacity by Michael Najjar :: Netherlands Media Art Institute, Keizersgracht 264, 1016 EV Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

In the movie Metropolis from 1926, director Fritz Lang created the vision of a futuristic 21st century mega-city. Now that we have crossed the threshold of this century our reality makes that vision seem strangely old-fashioned as new sets of factors unconsidered by Lang move to shape the future of our urban spaces. It is now ubiquitous computer networks, information delivery in real time and new display technologies which are the key elements transforming the face of our urban living spaces. Continue reading

Live Stage: UBERMORGEN Salon [at Vienna]

UBERMORGEN Salon: Chris Arendt (former Guantanamo Bay Prison Guard) lecture, Interrogation – Performance (Superenhanced), Q&A and Drinks :: May 29, 2009 9:00 pm :: Das Weisse Haus, Wollzeile 1, 5. Stock 1010 Vienna.

The Superenhanced Generator is an interrogation software that automatizes, dehumanizes, familiarizes and therefore optimizes examination. The software uses a smart (learning) backend which also includes „intelligence“ (additional information about the detainee found via google, facebook and youtube) into the interrogation. The questioning does not stop after one session but continues to penetrate the users mind and existence via email and facebook. The goal is to determine acceptance or disaffirmation of enhanced interrogation methods. Read more >>. Also see Superenhanced Photoseries and Superenhanced Video.
