Reading Machines: Toward an Algorithmic Criticism

Reading Machines: Toward an Algorithmic Criticism by Stephen Ramsay:

Rethinking digital literary criticism by situating computational work within the broader context of the humanities.

Besides familiar and now-commonplace tasks that computers do all the time, what else are they capable of? Stephen Ramsay’s intriguing study of computational text analysis examines how computers can be used as “reading machines” to open up entirely new possibilities for literary critics. Computer-based text analysis has been employed for the past several decades as a way of searching, collating, and indexing texts. Despite this, the digital revolution has not penetrated the core activity of literary studies: interpretive analysis of written texts. Continue reading

Waterwheel is cranking up!

WATERWHEEL is cranking up for its online launch, August 22, 2011.

Uploading media/data is already possible on the website. Below is a short video showing how to do it on the temporary interface. The July 4-15 laboratory on the TAP will allow people to try not only webcams (which can move, rotate, resize, flip in real time), but also mix & use media palettes, realtime drawing tool & type chat. Details below.

Waterwheel is an online space where you can interact, share, perform and debate about water as a topic and metaphor, with people around the world or right next door! It is cost-free, accessible with just a click, and open to everyone of all ages. It fosters creativity, collaboration and inter-cultural-generational exchange. Continue reading

“The Commons” by Linda Carroli

The Commons by Linda Carroli:

Taking cues from the examples and critics cited here, the idea of the commons has emerged as a networked space of creative and generative possibility and risk. To recover is to reclaim. In shaping the commons, Jay Walljasper states that we “recognise some forms of wealth belong to all of us, and that these community resources must be actively protected and managed for the good of all. The commons are the things that we inherit and create jointly, and that will (hopefully) last for generations to come. The commons consists of gifts of nature such as air, oceans and wildlife as well as shared social creations such as libraries, public spaces, scientific research and creative works.” However, there’s never just one commons – the commons itself is multiple and complex, in process and becoming. Artists actively keep the commons alive in the face of all kinds of opposition, censorship and antagonism. Continue reading

Live Stage: Dead Drops Master Class [nl Rotterdam]

Dead Drops Master Class with Aram Bartholl :: June 29, 2011; 10:00 am – 4:00 pm :: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam.

The term “Dead drops” refers to places where spies leave information behind to be picked up by others; a method often used among spies during the Cold War. In Aram Bartholl’s version of the dead drop, USB memory sticks are installed in public locations for anyone to upload or download information. By doing so, an anonymous, offline, peer-to-peer network for the exchange of digital information is created. More information about the project and current Dead Drop locations is available here.

Gone to Croatan: Strategies of Disappearance [de Dortmund]

Gone to Croatan: Strategies of Disappearance, curated by Robert Rumas (Gdansk) and Daniel Muzyczuk (Torun) :: until August 14, 2011 :: Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV), Dortmunder U (6th floor), Leonie-Reygers-Terasse, D-44137 Dortmund.

The first European colonists in the New World disappeared leaving behind the settlements and a paper note with the words Gone to the Croatan. The Croatan were an Indian tribe living in neighbouring territories. They are said to have murdered the settlers, however, reports concerning green-eyed Indians seem to contradict that version of events. A hypothesis suggests that the settlers went on a trip into another dimension.

Disappearance is generally associated with defeat. What is invisible is external to public life, and the invisible have no influence on the direction a community is taking. Continue reading

Future of Water: Call for Proposals [ie Dublin]

[Water wARs: Squatters Pavilion by John Craig Freeman] Future of Water exhibition and event series :: October 20, 2011 – January 20, 2012 :: Science Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland :: Call for Proposals – Deadline: July 15, 2011.

Calling all armchair hydrologists, liquid artists, part-time diviners, fluid technologists and steamy scientists! This October Science Gallery asks ‘what is the future of water?’. Water is a potentially all-encompassing theme – from the amazing physical properties of water, to its destructive and life-giving power in nature, and its role in both human development and conflict. It flows through us, as blood, sweat and tears. Continue reading

[iDC] Welcome to the MobilityShifts Discussion

[Image: “Pragmatic Geography” by Luis Camnitzer, courtesy Alexander Gray Associates] Posted on [iDC] by Trebor Scholz: Dear all,

Many of you on this list have participated in discussions around the Free Cooperation conference in 2004, Share Widely in 2005, Situated Technologies one year later and recently The Internet as Playground and Factory. In the context of these large-scale events, we did not use social media as secondary publicity but as canvases of as yet unthought practices and understudied or sidelined areas of enquiry that are able to meaningfully engage publics in discourse- from the German media theorist Christoph Spehr’s theory of free (versus forced) cooperation to commercial and governmental surveillance, digital labor, mobile education and self-learning through the lens of Austrian theorist Ivan Illich and the French philosopher Jacques Rancière.

Live Stage: Discontrol Party [fr Paris]

Discontrol Party by Samuel Bianchini (EnsadLab / DRii) :: June 24-25, 2011 8:00 pm – 2:00 am :: La Gaíté lyrique, 3, bis rue Papin, Paris.

Discontrol Party is a dispositif which brings together two worlds: that of state-of-the-art surveillance techniques and that of partying. The dancefloor/ live music venue/ performance space will appear in the dual spotlight of a partying event and a data-driven control and surveillance system (computer vision, RFID, recording by smartphones, etc.) The main space of the Gaíté Lyrique becomes for the space of one evening a night-club set up as a control room: far from light effects or other VJing, the participants, while partying, are confronted by multiple visualizations of the information technology system which observes them and seeks to analyze their behavior.
