Live Stage: Membranes Surfaces Boundaries [de Berlin]

Membranes Surfaces Boundaries: Creating Interstices :: October 9 – November 11, 2010 :: Opening: October 8; 6:30 pm :: Aedes am Pfefferberg, Christinenstrase 18-19, 10119 Berlin, Germany.

At first glance, surfaces are boundaries. But already the natural philosophers of Classical Antiquity were aware of the enigmatic character of this perception. Material consisted of small particles, themselves “atomos” or indivisible. This exhibition presents works by artist Heike Klussmann, architect Thorsten Klooster, designer/artist Susanna Hertrich and designer Clemens Winkler. In projects and experiments, these works demonstrate interactions between theoretical and material manifestations of membranes, surfaces, and boundaries, and their transitional stages between everyday objects, technology and aesthetic production.

Live Stage: Becoming Transreal [us Los Angeles]

Becoming Transreal: A mixed reality, biodigital performance by Micha Cárdenas and Elle Mehrmand :: November 3, 2010; 4:00 pm :: UCLA Freud Playhouse.

What if you could become anything? What happens after species change surgery becomes a reality? Becoming Transreal speculates on a future in which the promises of bionanotechnology have become realized, and yet as capitalism has continued to fail, both the interiors of our bodies and the virtual world have become totally commodified. you can become anything, but to finance your whims of identity transformation, the same nanohormones that transform your body are also producing drugs for others.

Cyborg Soldiers and Militarised Masculinities

Cyborg Soldiers and Militarised Masculinities by Cristina Masters, Eurozine:

Increasing military interest in the body cancels the transgressive potential of the cyborg. Where humans become the weakest link in contemporary warfare, the cyborg represents a desire for total masculinist control and domination. Machines, not human bodies, are now the subjects of the text.

Feminisms, technology and the military: The absence of bodies in the discourse of a discipline that was born of a concern with war and hence violence against bodies, itself raises curiosity as to the conditions of possibility that enabled this absence. — Vivienne Jabri (2006: 825) Continue reading

Visualizing Dilemmas: When Information and Biology Converge in the Visualization of Viruses

[Image: Infecter by Shannon Kennedy, 2004*] Visualizing Dilemmas: When Information and Biology Converge in the Visualization of Viruses by Roberta Buiani, NOEMA [PDF here]:

Technically speaking, computer and biological viruses are affiliated to two unbridgeable and well-separated spheres, one prevalently pertaining to the domain of information and the other to the one of carbon-based life. Their material formation contributes to such divergence: while computer viruses are normally fabricated by and partially depending on human agency, biological viruses are mostly understood as naturally occurring.

Lu Yang: A Torturous Vision [hk Hong Kong]

Lu Yang: A Torturous Vision :: April 16 – June 4, 2010 :: Opening Reception: April 16, 7:00 – 9:00 pm :: I/O (Input/Output), 31 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong.

I/O (Input/Output) is proud to present a solo exhibition by Chinese artist Lu Yang. New media art in greater China, when present, tends toward the conservative: re-engineered video games, simplistically interactive video installations, and sound art are the norm. In a few corners, however, a new wave of artists is pushing this envelope and developing new strains of practice based particularly around the complementary poles of aesthetic coding and, most intriguingly, biological matter.

Live Stage: The Rise of the Bio-Virtual [uk London + online]

Center for Contemporary & Digital Performance Research Seminar Series: The Rise of the Bio-Virtual: Non-place, Disappearance, Indistinction (Life in the Digital Kamp) by Matthew Causey :: February 17, 2010; 2:00 pm (GMT) :: Drama Studio Gaskell Bld. 048, School of Arts, Brunel University, Uxbridge/West London, Cleveland Road + The one hour talks and 30-minute discussions are webcast live on dance tech net TV (then archived).

Within the super-saturation of virtuality and technological reproductions in contemporary digital culture are established zones and terrains of indistinction and disappearance (digital kamps). These electronic environments I would nominate as examples of the bio-virtual (perhaps a post-virtual) and model the fields as a space of bio-politics par excellence. Continue reading

MindTouch: Mobile Social VJing

MindTouch by Camille Baker, SMARTlab Digital Media Institute:

The intention of this project is to contribute to performance technology studies by investigating ‘liveness and presence’ within the context of a specific networked, mobile media performance research project, currently underway, in order to uncover any new understandings that may have emerged from the use of new wireless and mobile technologies.

This project explores ideas of non-verbal transference, telepathic collaboration, and the participant as performer, using biofeedback and mobile phone technology under meta-goals of studying “liveness” within mobile networked environments. Continue reading
