The Centre for the Humanities organises a conference around Donna Haraway’s concept ‘naturecultures’. Apart from scholars (from all around the world) who will rewrite Haraway’s concept in various practices, dance company LeineRoebana will perform fragments of recent work expressing a similar problematics.

On the same day the art exhibition ‘Companion Sculptures’ opens which brings together the scholarly work of Haraway and the artistic production of sculptor Piet van de Kar. Continue reading

Turkish and Other Delights | Burak Arıkan

Turkish and Other Delights | Burak Arıkan by Elizabeth Wolfson, art:21.

Burak Arıkan is a busy guy. When we met in Istanbul two months ago to discuss his work, he had recently returned to the city from a net art conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was preparing to leave for a human rights conference in Senegal the next day, and already had upcoming trips to China and Mongolia scheduled. In addition to his own art practice, which explores the aesthetics of data and networks as a creative medium, Arıkan conducts workshops, teaching students both how to conceptualize their own visual networks and to use the complex programs that render those networks visible, and is also active with various human rights organizations in Turkey. Most recently, he has been busy preparing new work for the Hüseyin Alptekin retrospective that will serve as the inaugural exhibition at SALT, opening on April 9th, that uses his visual mapping technique to explore aspects of Alptekin’s work and biography…” More >>

We have entered the experimental age…Experiments are no longer conducted just in the laboratory. They have become collective experiments that concern each and every one of us.” Bruno Latour, 2004

What is experimentation? What makes art ‘experimental’? What are the results of aesthetic experiments and why do we need them? Could artists invent new modes of experimentation with/for science? Continue reading

Code/Space: Software and Everyday Life

Code/Space: Software and Everyday Life by Rob Kitchin and Martin Dodge:

After little more than half a century since its initial development, computer code is extensively and intimately woven into the fabric of our everyday lives. From the digital alarm clock that wakes us to the air traffic control system that guides our plane in for a landing, software is shaping our world: it creates new ways of undertaking tasks, speeds up and automates existing practices, transforms social and economic relations, and offers new forms of cultural activity, personal empowerment, and modes of play. In Code/Space, Rob Kitchin and Martin Dodge examine software from a spatial perspective, analyzing the dyadic relationship of software and space. The production of space, they argue, is increasingly dependent on code, and code is written to produce space. Continue reading

On-Curating.Org Issue 07

On-Curating.Org Issue 07: Being-With: Community – Ontological and Political Perspectives :: Edited by Elke Bippus, Joerg Huber, Dorothee Richter, Institute for Critical Theory, Zurich University of the Arts:

This edition of places ontological and political perspectives on notions of community at the centre of its debate. We believe that such an explicit discussion of community on a theoretical level is an urgent requirement in the context of ‘curating’ since cultural articulations always implicitly or explicitly address and produce communities. It was Jacques Rancière in particular who in The Politics of Aesthetics: The Distribution of the Sensible pointed out the importance of access to visibility and audibility since these are what enables or prevents access to a community.

“Sea of Tweets” – A Message for Japan

[The artists have placed tweets in front of Mt. Fuji, a symbol of Japan’s strength and perseverance] Sea of Tweets — by Mark Skwarek, Tamiko Thiel, and John Craig Freeman — allows viewers to tweet wishes to those in Japan affected by the terrible earthquake and tsunami of March 2011. Participants tweets from around the globe are transformed into paper cranes; the first crane tweets are already in place.

Tweets will also be placed around the northeast coast line of Japan focusing on areas affected by the tsunami, but viewers might not be able to see them there until the infrastructure is restored. In the meantime, paper cranes will be placed in other parts of Japan where people can see them without problems. The rest of the world will be given the telepresence experience of Japan’s coast. Once conditions return to normal in the areas affected by the disaster, viewers will also be able to see the cranes on-site, riding on the waves of the Pacific coast.

Fish, they say, aren’t aware of water. Most people, including computer scientists, don’t notice the hidden assumptions and traditions that have structured today’s computer world and digital documents. These assumptions push the real problems into the laps of users and programmers. Almost nobody notices the consequences of this locked cosmology. Continue reading
