Live Stage: Mapping Community Arts [us NYC]

Mapping Community Arts: Subversion, Repressive Tolerance and Pastoral Power by Pascal Gielen — organized and moderated by Hakan Topal with a response by Alex Villar :: November 8, 2011; 6:30 pm :: Art in General, 79 Walker Street, New York, NY.

In recent years there has been increased attention to so-called ‘socially engaged art practices’. Equipped with a sense of urgency and intent, artists and curators develop work with the support of communities or groups to tackle political and social issues. While the success of these projects are not easily measurable, they often reiterate the role of artist/ curator as protagonists of specific forms of social change, which posits a direct contrast to recent activism which carefully distances itself from any leader-based political organizational categories.

Geocities: The Deleted City

The Deleted City is a digital archaeology of the world wide web as it exploded into the 21st century. At that time the web was often described as an enormous digital library that you could visit or contribute to by building a homepage. The early citizens of the net (or netizens) took their netizenship serious, and built homepages about themselves and subjects they were experts in. These pioneers found their brave new world at Geocities, a free webhosting provider that was modelled after a city and where you could get a free “piece of land” to build your digital home in a certain neighbourhood based on the subject of your homepage. Heartland was – as a neigbourhood for all things rural – by far the largest, but there were neighbourhoods for fashion, arts and far east related topics to name just a few. Continue reading

Live Stage: Thrilling Wonder Stories 3 [online]

Thrilling Wonder Stories 3 — a transatlantic ideas festival featuring the finest in speculative design and spatial fiction :: October 28, 2011; 12:00 – 10:00 pm (London Time) :: Architectural Association, London, and Studio-X NYC + Follow online with our livestream and the Twitter feed (hashtag #tws3).

We have always regaled ourselves with speculative stories of a day yet to come. In these polemic visions we furnish the fictional spaces of tomorrow with objects and ideas that at the same time chronicle the contradictions, inconsistencies, flaws and frailties of the everyday. Slipping suggestively between the real and the imagined these narratives offer a distanced view from which to survey the consequences of various social, environmental and technological scenarios.

Digital Art Works. The Challenges of Conservation [de Karlsruhe]

Digital Art Works. The Challenges of Conservation Exhibition :: October 29, 2011 – February 12, 2012 :: Opening: October 28; 7:00 pm :: ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Lorenzstrasse 19, 76135 Karlsruhe, Germany.

For a few decades now, digitalization in the art context has enabled and simplified the processing and distribution of data. However, the preservation of new media artworks, in particular those that are digital-born, but also those subject to digitalization after their creation, is rendered difficult by the rapid pace of technological change. This circumstance creates uncertainty concerning the preservation and transmission of the artistic products of our time. Continue reading

Nathalie Miebach: Weather Scores & Sculptures

Nathalie Miebach is a Boston-based artist who translates weather data into complex sculptures and musical scores.

“Recently, I have begun translating weather data collected in cities into musical scores, which are then translated into sculptures as well as being a source for collaboration with musicians. These pieces are not only devices that map meteorological conditions of a specific time and place, but are also functional musical scores to be played by musicians. While musicians have freedom to interpret, they are asked not to change the essential relationship of the notes to ensure that what is still heard is indeed the meteorological relationship of weather data.” (Scroll down for the Call for Composers.)

The Critical Engineer Manifesto

“The Virtual Water Project” by Timm Kekeritz

The Virtual Water Project by Timm Kekeritz, part of Surface Tension, Dublin.

People use large amounts of water for drinking, cooking and washing, and even more for producing things such as food, paper, cotton clothes, and almost every other physical product. Usually, the amount of freshwater that goes into making a product – its virtual water content – far exceeds the amount contained in it at the end of the process. The water footprint of a person, company or nation is not unlike their ecological footprint. It is defined as the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the commodities, goods and services that they consume. Based on data gathered by Hoeckstra et al. on the water footprints of nations, designer Timm Kekeritz created a set of infographics to make the issue of virtual water and the water footprint perceivable. In collaboration with his colleague Frank Rausch, the Virtual Water iOS app was created in 2010. Continue reading
