“Artist Animal” by Steve Baker

Artist Animal by Steve Baker, University of Minnesota Press:

Artist Animal examines the work of contemporary artists who directly confront questions of animal life, treating animals not aesthetically or symbolically but rather as beings who actively share the world with humanity. Featuring full-color examples of their art, it situates artists within the wider project of thinking beyond the human, asserting art’s power to open new ways of thinking about animals.

Animals have always been compelling subjects for artists, but the rise of animal advocacy and posthumanist thought has prompted a reconsideration of the relationship between artist and animal. Continue reading

Digital Prohibition: Piracy and Authorship in New Media Art

Digital Prohibition: Piracy and Authorship in New Media Art by Carolyn Guertin:

In the first book to discuss the global politics of creativity and emergent models of authorship in a digital age, Guertin explores the creation of new media forms by artists who use technology to challenge established modes. Redefining authorship within remix culture, the book identifies the potentialities in the social nature of electronic works to foster new creative practices – from sampling to mashups to digital anthropophagy – on a global scale.

Carolyn Guertin holds a dual appointment in digital media — as Assistant Professor and Director of the eCreate Lab at the University of Texas at Arlington and as a member of the graduate faculty at Transart Institute in Berlin, Germany. Continue reading

DEAF2012 Symposium: Vital Beauty [nl Amsterdam]

DEAF2012 (Dutch Electronic Art Festival) :: Symposium: Vital Beauty – May 16-20, 2012 :: DeBalie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The symposium focuses on the question of how the age-old notion of beauty can regain an importance appropriate to the 21st century.

Our need for beauty has not diminished, as hard as modernism tried to erase it from art and life and supplant it with the sublime. It was a sublime that increasingly associated itself with negation and deconstruction. In contrast, vital beauty, as defined by John Ruskin more than 150 years ago, is a beauty of sympathies and affinities with life forms. Yet vital beauty must be reinvented, since life forms today can be technological as well as natural. Continue reading

The Transreal: Political Aesthetics of Crossing Realities

The Transreal: Political Aesthetics of Crossing Realities (Micha Cárdenas, et al) explores the use of multiple simultaneous realities as a medium in contemporary art, including mixed reality, augmented reality and alternate reality approaches. Building on the notion of “trans” from transgender, signifying the crossing of boundaries, the book proposes that transreal aesthetics cross the boundaries created by a proliferation of conceptions of reality that occurred as a result of postmodern theory and emerging technologies.

Proposing three operations for dealing with multiple realities, The Transreal discusses artists and art collectives including Blast Theory, mez breeze, Reza Negarestani, Ricardo Dominguez and Zach Blas. Through these artists’ work and Micha Cárdenas‘ own artwork, including Becoming Dragon and collaborations with Elle Mehrmand Continue reading
