New Imaging [au Sydney]

New Imaging: Transdisciplinary Strategies for Art Beyond the New Media :: November 5-6, 2010 :: Artspace, 43/51 Cowper Wharf Rd, Sydney, Australia.

A profound shift is occurring in our understanding of postmodern media culture. Since the turn of the millennium the emphasis on mediation as technology and as aesthetic idiom, as opportunity for creative initiatives and for critique, has become increasingly normative and doctrinaire. Mediation and the new media arts have in fact become the new medium of critical and pedagogical discourse: like water is for fish, like culture is for cultural studies, mediation is a concept that is taken for granted now because it is itself the medium in which we think and act, in which we swim. We need a concept that is amphibian, and that can leave its medium. Continue reading

Turbulence Spotlight: Corrupt™ by Benjamin Gaulon

Turbulence Spotlight: Corrupt™ – data corruption software by Benjamin Gaulon (aka Recyclism):

Corrupt™ was originally built with Proce55ing. This PHP version has been realised in collaboration with BlueMelon. The corruption process starts by reading the binary of an image file [JPG or GIF]; then some bytes are randomly swapped. The file is then “saved as” a new document. Depending on the number of replacements and the original compression, the image will have a completely different and unpredictable aesthetics. Thus, from a single image the program can generate millions of corrupted versions. And because it is a real corruption system that damages the binaries of a file, some of the results can’t be showed because they are too damaged. Continue reading

Live Stage: Sirbed: Aural Inversions [us NYC]

Sirbed: Aural Inversions of Debris :: April 22, 2010; 6:30-8:30 pm :: P.P.O.W Gallery 511 West 25th Street Room 301 New York, NY.

This one-night exhibition presents three newly commissioned experimental sound compositions by artists from across the country. The two-hour exhibition, occurring two days before the closing of P.P.O.W’s concurrent three artist show Debris, seeks to invert the ways that the viewer traditionally perceives an exhibition through positing sonic manipulations of its visual, written, and social material. The three new works will be presented to viewers in the darkened gallery-turned-theater, synthesized under the dislocating darkness — an additional empirical inversion and mediator between the visual gallery experience and the reconfiguration this experience through sound.

The Urban Spectator: American Concept-Cities from Kodak to Google

Update: Eric Gordon on ROROTOKO >>

The Urban Spectator: American Concept-Cities from Kodak to Google by Eric Gordon:

The Urban Spectator is a lively and utterly fascinating exploration of the ways in which technologies have influenced our collective conception of the American city, as well as our relationship with urban space and architecture. Eric Gordon argues that the city, developing late and in conjunction with a range of modern media, produced a particular way of seeing — what he labels “possessive spectatorship.” Continue reading

“FUJI spaces and other places” by Nurit Bar-Shai

Turbulence Commission: FUJI spaces and other places by Nurit Bar-Shai:

Appropriating, processing, and interweaving several existing webcam feeds of Mount Fuji, FUJI is a durational piece for four seasons. FUJI examines the authenticity of networked, spatiotemporal experiences of distant nature, sacred sites, and sacred icons. The overwhelming immediacy and delirious variety of live broadcasts available via the Internet, as well as the current incitement to communicate with distant but real subjects alter our experience of space which is invariably mediated through images. In FUJI, the gap between the real place and its representation no longer exists. FUJI is a voyage across deep time, experienced minute by minute, day by day — a longing for a place that could never be, yet, evidently, always is. Continue reading

“A Parallel Image” by Sengmueller & Buechinger

A Parallel Image — by Gebhard Sengmueller and Franz Buechinger — is an electronic camera obscura which digitises an image and simultaneously transmits all elements to a location.

This media- archaeological, interactive sculpture is based on the fictive assumption that the currently still valid principle of electronically transmitting moving images, namely by breaking them down into single images and image lines, was never discovered. The result is an apparatus that attempts a highly elaborate parallel transmission of every single pixel from sender to receiver. This is only possible by connecting camera and monitor using about 2,500 cables. Unlike conventional electronic image transmission procedures, A Parallel Image is technologically completely transparent, conveying to the viewer a correspondence between real world and transmission that can be sensually experienced.

John Berger: Ways of Seeing

Screaming In Digital: The New Media Generation’s Inner War

“Since the birth of primitive social networking technologies in the mid-’90s, the rise of modern equivalents such as Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace have permanently reconfigured the fundamental DNA of human communication. They have moved beyond the simple technological augmentation of existing communication paradigms, and now communication itself is technological.

For many users, especially those who don’t remember the world pre-Internet, organic forms of communication are firmly obsolete. They demand instantaneous, online communications suites that are easily configurable, and are able to capture their personalities, in the pursuit of living at least part of their lives in the digital world. There is a cost, though – these new developments in human socialisation are eroding the very foundations of traditional interpersonal relationships, and corroding our ideas of who we are, and what it means to be represented as a living, breathing, and yes, organic human… Continue reading Screaming In Digital: The New Media Generation’s Inner War by D.C.
