Live Stage: DEMO – Interactive Media [fr Tourcoing]

DEMO – Exhibiting and Demonstrating Interactive Media Symposium :: April 2, 2010; 9:00 am – 9:00 pm :: Le Fresnoy / Studio national des arts contemporains, 22, rue du Fresnoy, 59202 Tourcoing, France :: reservation

Engineers are used to creating demonstrators to present, test and improve their products. Artists, on the other hand, rely on exhibitions to present their work. Scientists consider this model of the fine arts exhibition as unfit for their purposes. The question, however, that needs to be addressed is how to rethink the exhibition so that it is no longer conceived as a showcase for finished artworks but as a truly experimental environment for the testing and creation of artistic experiences in collaboration with the audience.

Reblogged, interaction is destruction

Digital data has a paradoxical status. Immaterial by definition, it nonetheless has a need for a physical substance (hardware) to manifest itself. Eternal and not subject to decay, it is forced to bond its life to the hosting support, inheriting fragility and a tendency to degenerate. Furthermore, data legibility is continuously put at risk by the growing obsolescence of machines and software.
 This complex relationship between matter and code has fascinated artists since the sixties, when conceptualists spotted in the developing computer languages a possible metaphor for art itself (materials as hardware and ideas as software), as well as a new platform for experimenting with processuality in art. Zach Gage, an artist and programmer based in New York City, gathered these suggestions and reworked them in a project named, a website that incorporates an auto-deleting system. He writes: “data on the Internet has a seemingly infinite shelf-life. Between search-engine caching, cloud-hosting, re-blogging, plagiarising, and the way-back machine, the net collects and eternally stores vast amounts of information. eschews this paradigm”.

on the edge of successful adaptation that is so ingenious that one goes from almost the same to something else, to something new, which is only morally obligated to the original. — Umberto Eco

Variations and versions are central components of a globalized and constantly faster-paced everyday culture. Only a short time after their introduction, products and services — especially in the field of information technology — are quickly expanded, reformulated, refined, and different versions are produced for different markets.
