Mobile Art: The Aesthetics of Mobile Network Culture in Place Making

[Image: The Border Memorial: Frontera de los Muertos by John Craig Freeman and Mark Skwarek] Mobile Art: The Aesthetics of Mobile Network Culture in Place Making :: February 22-25, 2012 :: College Art Association Conference, Los Angeles, California :: Call for Papers — Deadline: May 1.

The integration of mobile and locational technology into physical place has broadened the possibilities for the creation of new spaces of interaction and opened the disciplinary boundaries used to define and
understand the public arena. When real places are merged with virtual worlds, or augmented with interactive digital media, the result is a completely new “hybrid” environment where physical and digital objects coexist in real time. We seek proposals from artists, scholars, or interdisciplinary collaborative teams that engage art that incorporates cell phones, GPS, and other mobile technologies. Continue reading

REFF – Remix The World! Reinvent Reality!

REFF – Remix The World! Reinvent Reality! Art is Open Source :: until March 2011 :: Furtherfield Gallery (formerly HTTP), Unit A2, Arena Business Centre, 71 Ashfield Rd, London N4 1NY.

In a world where individuals and communities are connected via real-time technologies in a state of mutual hyper-presence, what does it mean that our interactions can be traced and viewed by people unknown to us? Can we claim these effects to consciously produce new realities and create new adventures beyond given structures and stories? Can we remix our realities?

REFF – Remix The World! Reinvent Reality! offers tools and strategies to explore different ways of ‘being’ with others physically and virtually to intervene in the world. Let’s see what we can do…” Furtherfield. Continue reading

Extimacy: Art, Intimacy And Technology [es Palma]

Extimacy: Art, Intimacy And Technology – curated by Pau Waelder, with Gazira Babeli, Clara Boj, Martin John Callanan, Grégory Chatonsky, Diego Díaz, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Laurent Mignonneau, Paul Sermon, Christa Sommerer, Carlo Zanni :: until May 1, 2011 :: Museum Es Baluard, Placa Porta Santa Catalina, 10, 07012 Palma, Spain.

Inside the immense flow of data exchange, the new technologies have facilitated an interdependency between the spheres of what is private and what is public, between interior and exterior, leading us to reveal, in an increasingly natural manner, our experiences, thoughts and feelings, enlarging the circle of intimacy to the point of sharing our inner life with the invisible, abstract audience of Internet users.

Screendance 2.0: Social Dance-Media

Special Edition of Participations: Screen Dance Audiences, Volume 7, Issue 2: Screendance 2.0: Social Dance-Media by Harmony Bench, The Ohio State University, USA.

Abstract: This essay argues that, as dance and screen media conjoined to create the hybrid art practice of dance-media, so too are dance-media and social media converging to produce an area of artistic experimentation I call social dance-media. This essay explores three strands of social dance-media — crowdsource, flash, and viral choreographies — and provides examples of each. Following protocols from social media, each of these modalities represents a form of participatory choreography or performance that evidences social media’s impression upon dance in contemporary popular culture.

LONGING FOR… Symposium and Exhibition [at Graz]

LONGING FOR… Symposium and Exhibition in MotionAn Interdisciplinary Spatial Research Lab curated by Charlotte Pöchhacker :: December 13-16, 2010 :: Grazer Kunstverein, Burggasse 4, A 8010 Graz, Austria.

Explorative motion is the leitmotif for LONGING FOR…, an interdisciplinary spatial research lab, that focuses on bodies, spaces and motion. The lab inspires innovative approaches through trans-genre questions and examines interfaces between architecture, composition and choreography.

The LONGING FOR… performance installation was created during the project’s first phase. Taking as its point of departure the GSarchitects’ mp09 building, LONGING FOR… #Score 1 examined the extent to which actual features from architecture can be presented, in response developing a hybrid performance installation.

“Biomodd” by Angelo Vermeulen, et al

Biomodd is a collaborative art project conceived to challenge presumed notions of opposition between nature and technology in different cultures throughout the world. The title Biomodd came up spontaneously as a working title, but very rapidly came to embody the nature of the project and naturally became the final title.

Biomodd is predicated on a set of themes:

Symbiosis between biological and electronic systems. In Biomodd, nature and technology are not juxtaposed but rather fused into imaginative hybrid installations. The core idea is the creation of experimental systems in which modified computer networks coexist with living ecosystems. The challenge is to bring biological life as physically close to the electronics as possible, and allow them to communicate with each other through meaningful symbiotic relationships.

[YASMIN] Of Flashmobs, Foursquare and Facades…..

[YASMIN] Kartharine S. Mills wrote:

In the discussion on hybrid spaces, an earlier post from Martin and Dimitiris (20 July) talked about The synchronous experience of a mobile spatial interface and of the non-mediated physical environment, a hybrid spatial experience, material (space determined by material elements) and immaterial space (determined by digitally produced representations) are merging. This is a useful starting point and there is no doubt that the physical spaces we inhabit and move through are now mediated with technologies; they are hybrid spaces. Yet it seems to me that we are finding it difficult to move beyond the rhetoric and to really respond to the challenge of how to engage with these hybrid cities as designers and how to understand the new behaviours that are emerging in these layered spaces. Below I introduce some of my own thoughts and questions on this topic. Continue reading
