Turbulence Commission: “Social Relay Mail”

Turbulence Commission: Social Relay Mail by Brooke Singer, with Fever Creative (Needs a Facebook Account):

Social Relay Mail (SRM) is an app that lets you identify a stranger on Facebook and use your social network to deliver a private message. Turn your friends, your friends’ friends, and your friends’ friends’ friends into your personal courier service. Sending the message is only half the fun. In the process, discover the strength of your social network via a handy data visualization. Did your message arrive at its destination or get dropped? How many people had to be enlisted along the way? Social Relay Mail is part Pony Express and part Facebook hack — testing the limits of interaction in a controlled social space. Continue reading

The National Mall – First Location-Aware Album

(Im)Mobility Exploring the Boundaries of Hypermobility

Open 21: (Im)Mobility Exploring the Boundaries of Hypermobility:

Advanced communications technologies seem to be paving the way for an increase in physical and motorized mobility. At the same time, these accelerating flows of data and commodities stand in sharp contrast to the elbow room afforded to the biological body, which in fact is forced to a standstill. And while data, goods and capital have been freed of their territorial restrictions, the opposite is true for a growing proportion of the world’s population: border regimes, surveillance and identity control are being intensified at a rapid pace. In short, we are seeing both an uncurbed and uncontrolled increase of mobility and segregating filtrations. This issue of Open explores the internal contradictions of prevailing mobility regimes and their effects on social and physical space. Continue reading

A New Performativity: Wearables and Body-Devices

[Image: Assa Ashuach’s “My Trousers”] A New Performativity: Wearables and Body-Devices by Danielle Wilde:

ABSTRACT: In their relatively short history, wearables and body-devices have evolved from cyborg-like extensions and utilitarian solutions aimed at enhancing efficiency, to poetic representations and experiences that give form to the imagination through indirect and abstract transformations. These new body-artefacts, in particular those that directly consider the body’s capacity for movement, afford a new kind of performativity that is as much experiential as it is representational. By engaging in an embodied, pre-verbal discourse such works encourage observer empathy in a way that shifts from traditional performance forms such as dance and theatre. Observer can be interactor and roles of performer and audience are blurred or no longer apply. Continue reading

“Digital Art and Meaning” by Roberto Simanowski

Digital Art and Meaning by Roberto Simanowski, University of Minnesota Press:

Digital Art and Meaning offers close readings of varied examples from genres of digital art, including kinetic concrete poetry, computer-generated text, interactive installation, mapping art, and information sculpture. Roberto Simanowski combines these illuminating explanations with a theoretical discussion employing art philosophy and history to achieve a deeper understanding of each example of digital art and of the genre as a whole.

“Against an aesthetic thought that privileges erotics over hermeneutics and performative presence over meaning, Roberto Simanowski demonstrates in critical detail how the web has not spelt the end of interpretation, but has complicated it. Continue reading
