Autonet – An Autonomous Internet

Autonet is a project to create a wireless, global internet that can provide more reliability than corporate phone companies by being community based and freely licensed.

The cutting off access to The Pirate Bay by BT in the UK is just another sign of the beginning of the end. The fact that the Great Firewall of China exists signals that the internet is already obsolete and that the Great Firewall of the US is just around the corner. While moves against net neutrality began years ago and have been fought, nasty laws such as HR4437 and the Total Information Awareness program have a way of coming into existence later in the future, slightly modified, under different names.

“Visitors’ Profile” by Hans Haacke

[Image: Installation view. Visitors’ Profile, 1971
Hans Haacke | Visitors’ Profile, Directions 3: Eight Artists, Milwaukee Art Centre, June 19 through August 8, 1971]
Visitors’ Profile — by Hans Haacke –consists of a questionnaire about contemporary events that was distributed to museum visitors to a group exhibition in Milwaukee. While Haacke had used questionnaires in his works before, this particular questionnaire was the first time that he successfully used a computer to compile the results and generate a statistical profile of the exhibition’s audience. This important historical work introduces the idea of visitors playing an active role in their information environment and “completing” the work of art.

For the Software exhibition curated by Jack Burnham at the Jewish Museum in 1970, Haacke proposed that a poll would be conducted using computers. According to Edward Shanken: Continue reading

“Measuring the Universe” by Roman Ondák [us NYC]

Performance 4: Measuring the Universe by Roman Ondák :: June 24 – September 14, 2009 :: The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 11 West 53 Street, New York City.

Museumgoers play a central role in the creation of Measuring the Universe (2007) by Slovakian artist Roman Ondák. Over the course of the exhibition, attendants will record the heights of Museum visitors on the gallery walls, along with their first names and the date each measurement is taken. Beginning as an empty white space, the gallery will gradually accumulate the traces of thousands of people, generating a unique wall drawing.

The inclusion of the viewer in the art-making process has a long tradition in the history of performance-based art. Continue reading

Reblogged Gaurav Mishra on The Irony of Iran’s ‘Twitter Revolution’

Updated: The Irony of Iran’s ‘Twitter Revolution’

I had earlier written about the use of social technologies in the 2009 Iran presidential election campaign.

Now, Mir-Hossein Mousavi’s supporters are disputing the overwhelming victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the elections (Hamid Tehrani at Global Voices).

Various observers have called the protests ‘Facebook/ Twitter protests’, claiming that social media tools have been critical in organizing these protests (Clay Shirky on TED Blog, Lev Glossman in Time, Mark Ambinder at The Atlantic). The #IranElection Twitter feed has indeed been hyperactive all week (Ben Parr in Mashable). Continue reading

Grounding Open Source Hardware [ca Banff]

Grounding Open Source Hardware (GOSH!) Workshop and Summit :: July 16-18, 2009 :: The Banff New Media Institute, The Banff Centre, Canada :: Call for Participants — Deadline: July 5, 2009 (A limited number of on-site registration packages, which include accommodation and a meal plan).

GOSH! will bring together makers, producers and theorizers of open source hardware to facilitate the emerging dialogue on both artist-driven and socially conscious open-source hardware. The breadth of open source hardware projects and distributed models of manufacturing suggest that it is time for these disparate manufacturers, designers, artists and engineers to come together to discuss the common issues of their practices.

Play the Panorama

Play the Panorama: Call for Participation: Deadline: July 1, 2009 — Play the Panorama is an endless ‘relay travelogue’ that started during the summer of 2008 in Kemerovo, Siberia. The project was initiated by the Dutch artist Ronald Huynen. He designed a drawing instrument that contains a long paper scroll that enables one to make extremely long drawings. The tool is portable, lightweight and made for traveling.

It all began when Huynen visited Siberia, and presented the instrument to local artists. Participants were asked to continue to draw a moving landscape, an interpretation of the world that surrounds them. Continue reading

REALIT(Y/IES) – Call for Artists [us NYC]

AC Institute [Direct Chapel]: REALIT(Y/IES) :: Call for Participation/Call for Artists — Deadlines: For Fall 09 and Spring 2010: August 1, 2009 :: For Spring 2010: November 1, 2009

This means that the dialectic of semblance and Real cannot be reduced to the rather elementary fact that the virtualization of our daily lives, the experience that we are living more and more in an artificially constructed universe, gives rise to an irresistible urge to ‘return to the Real’, to regain firm ground in some ‘real reality’. ― Slavoj Žižek, Welcome to the Desert of the Real!, 2002

In 2008 we wondered: the relationship between real estate prices and actual money, if the crowds at the Armory were smaller than the year before, the various costs of a fossil fuel driven culture, if our gallery could exist without being on Facebook and if we even needed to leave our homes (or computers for that matter).

Clay Shirky: How Twitter can make History

While news from Iran streams to the world, Clay Shirky shows how Facebook, Twitter and TXTs help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censors (however briefly). The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics. Continue reading
