Coded Cultures 2011: The City as Interface [at Vienna]

Coded Cultures 2011: The City as Interface :: September 21 – October 2, 2011 :: Second district (Leopoldstadt), Vienna, Austria.

Coded Cultures is an multinational initiative of the group 5uper.net to discuss and reflect the intersections of media, art, society and technology in experimental settings of exihibitions, workshops, symposia, presentations and artistic interventions. For the fourth time, Coded Cultures presents a forum to discuss and present (new) media arts, digital communities and positions itself in the current international (media arts) discourse.

Cultural accomplishments of individuals or differently organized forms of human beings in context with an ever-changing (transforming) environment bring manifold products and processes to surface: cultural artifacts, »distributed agencies«, »framed interactivity« , collective ideas.

Art and Sustainability: Connecting Patterns for a Culture of Complexity

Art and Sustainability: Connecting Patterns for a Culture of Complexity by Sacha Kagan:

What is the cultural dimension of sustainability? This book offers a thought-provoking answer, with a theoretical synthesis on »cultures of sustainability«. Describing how modernity degenerated into a culture of unsustainability, to which the arts are contributing, Sacha Kagan engages us in a fundamental rethinking of our ways of knowing and seeing the world. We must learn not to be afraid of complexity, and to re-awaken a sensibility to patterns that connect. With an overview of ecological art over the past 40 years, and a discussion of art and social change, the book assesses the potential role of art in a much needed transformation process.

Live Stage: Nightmare on the Mississippi [us Saint Paul]

Northern Lights.mn presents Nightmare on the Mississippi — An ephemeral public artwork by Andréa Stanislav :: August 26, 2011; 9:00 – 10:30 pm :: Launching from Harriet Island, Saint Paul, MN.

Nightmare is a public video work that creates the illusion of a white horse galloping on the Mississippi, at night, and in slow motion. The horse uses the river as a metaphorical race track creating a spectacular illusion. The illusion is produced by towing a 10’x13′ video screen placed on a barge at night. The darkness will conceal the tow boat and barge, while the projected video of a white horse appears to gallop on the surface of the river. Continue reading

Spiral Drawing Sunrise [tr Istanbul]

Spiral Drawing Sunrise, a device for the site specific recording of sunrises by Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum :: September 14-20, 2011; times here :: part of ISEA2011.

Spiral Drawing Sunrise’s main component is a “phototropic car”, a small robotic rover that runs on solar energy, not unlike the carts used by NASA to explore the environments of distant planets. Except that this cart is designed to make observations of a distant body, the sun, in familiar settings, like a public square. It functions as a kind of sun-powered, mobile hour glass: the cart, tight to a pole with a longinsh rope, moves when its panels have collected a given amount of sunlight. And as it continuously deposits sand, the cart leaves behind a patterned spiral trail. Continue reading

Participate in ‘Ebb and Flow, the Internet cave’

Ebb and Flow, the Internet cave by Fred Forest :: until October 30, 2011 :: online and at Centre d’art Le LAIT – Moulins Albigeois, 41 rue Porta, 81000 Albi, France.

In the 1970s, as a pioneer of video art, and media and network art, Fred Forest, who was born in 1933, ushered in the concept of sociological art. Then in the 1980s he initiated the concept of the aesthetics of communication. The ethical and aesthetic dimensions join together to put the human factor at the heart of his approach, especially through the involvement of different kinds of public in his works.

“Memopol-II” by Timo Toots [ee Tallinn]

Memopol-II by Timo Toots @ gateways. Art and Networked Culture (see video):

Memopol-II is a social machine that maps the visitor’s information field. By inserting an identification document such as a national ID card or EU passport into the machine, it starts collecting information about the visitor from (inter)national databases and the Internet. The data is then visualized on a large‐scale custom display. The collection panel also shows the portraits of the visitors from their ID card.

The Cyrillic spelling of the installation’s name refers to George Orwell’s concept of Big Brother from his 1949 dystopian novel 1984. Over the past decades, technological means have transformed the surveillance of society. When surfing on the Internet, paying with an ATM card, or using an ID card, people leave their digital traces everywhere. Continue reading

“Magnetic Cities” by Christina Kubisch [ee Tallinn]

Magnetic Cities – Tallinn by Christina Kubisch Commissioned for gateways. Art and Networked Culture, 2011 (also see Electrical Walk):

Magnetic Cities – Tallinn is part of a new group of works by German sound artist Christina Kubisch in which she creates portraits of cities using photographs and electromagnetic sounds. Visitors to the photographic installation receive an audio guide, with which they can select and listen to the sound landscape for any given image. The images are not chosen for their touristic attraction but, rather, for their acoustic qualities. We hear the normally inaudible electromagnetic fields of a particular place; Kubisch causes these fields to resonate using specially developed headphones with a built-in induction coil.

“Freestanding” by Petko Dourmana [ee Tallinn]

Freestanding by Petko Dourmana :: Commission for gateways. Art and Networked Culture, 2011:

Presenting two towers in augmented reality on smart phones and telling their stories with drawings and video, Freestanding invites audiences to compare the concepts and contexts in which the structures were conceived. One of the towers was never built, but managed to become one of the most recognizable examples of the constructivist movement and is considered one of the symbols of modernity in the early twentieth century — Vladimir Tatlin’s project for the four hundred meter high Monument to the Third International (1919–20).

“Tallinn Wall” by Thomson & Craighead [ee Tallinn]

Tallinn Wall by Thomson & Craighead @ gateways. Art and Networked Culture, 2011:

Tallinn Wall is a physical manifestation of the invisible city all around us, a poetic snapshot of social networking traffic from within a ten kilometer radius of the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn. The artists Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead manually manufacture a collision between electronic public space and the physical public space of the museum.

In a performance that will last a couple of days, the artists collect and select publicly available status updates from popular websites like Twitter and Facebook. These will then be published as a vast array of standard sized posters and pasted onto a wall in the museum’s foyer, revealing the idle mutterings of ourselves to ourselves as a form of concrete poetry. Continue reading
