“Afflator” by Nick Knouf

Afflator — by Nick Knouf — breathes upon the conditions of today’s robotic creatures that are pulled into the muck of mimesis. To have a robot that is spoken to in natural language, that walks in a bipedal fashion, is the research that is valorised. Afflator deforms these conditions to suggest that the robotic form does not need to resemble anything we have seen before, that the means of engagement with a robot can be something other than traditional language and movement. Draping from the gallery ceiling and extending along the floor in a wave of fabric, Afflator unfolds onto contemporary robotics research to suggest other ethico-political options for engagement with the robotic other.

Extending from Afflator is a tube with an attached mask, worn by the gallery visitor to create a machinic assemblage of human and creature. Continue reading

Turbulence Commission: “Les Belles Infidèles” by Ethan Ham

Turbulence Commission: Les Belles Infidèles by Ethan Ham:

Les Belles Infidèles consists of a short story — written specifically for this project by Benjamin Rosenbaum — that has been translated and retranslated by more than 40 translators into 15 languages. The project is an exploration of the story’s compounding mutation as the translators attempt to make it work in different languages and cultures. The term “les belles infidèles” comes from a 17th century quip by Gilles Ménage in which he compared a set of translations to an acquaintance of his: beautiful but unfaithful. The phrase has come to express the tension between making a translation seem natural in the target language versus keeping it as close as possible to the original text. Continue reading

OSLOO by FOS [dk Copenhagen]

KØS: Museum of Art in Public Spaces presents: OSLOO by FOS :: until August 29, 2010 :: Strandgade 27, Copenhagen, Denmark.

The piece Osloo by Danish visual artist FOS is a floating social pavilion where 12 ‘situation-compositions’ will take place over the course of 12 nights. Each event involves a mixture of genres that creates an alternate view on a chosen subject, in this case ‘Language’. The aim of Osloo’s events is to explore the way in which language functions as a social tool.

The pavilion is open every day from 4-12 pm and functions as a public space on the harbour. The platform consists of three “stages”: a Bar, a Stage, and the Internet radio station Grotta Nuova. Continue reading

Imprint II [us San Francisco]

Imprint II Henry Daniel and Owen Underhill :: June 17-20, 2010 :: San Francisco.

Imprint is a daring, site-specific work for dancers, large music ensemble and telepresence technology. It explores the resonance of cultural artifacts and stories as transmitted from place-to-place, time-to-time, and person-to-person. Music by Owen Underhill is paired with Henry Daniel’s spectacular combination of modern technology and movement.

The Imprint project began when Curator Jill Baird approached Henry Daniel to create a new work for the opening of the new Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC. Henry approached Owen Underhill who in turn brought in the Turning Point Ensemble, and a complex journey was begun. On January 23, 2010, the first project, Imprint I, was premiered at the MOA. Extensive assistance with this project was provided by Chief Robert Joseph and William Wasden, both of the Kwakwaka’wakw nation. Continue reading

Live Stage: common practice [uk Bristol + online]

common practice: Texts by mez breeze :: June 3, 2010; 5:00 – 8:00 pm :: Reading Room, Arnolfini, Bristol, UK and online.

Italo Calvino said ‘the storyteller explored the possibilities implied in his own language by combining and changing the permutations of the figures and the actions, and of the objects on which these actions could be brought to bear‘. It is by following this principle that common practice will start.

The first session will open with mez breeze’s mezangelle poems, written in a blend of code and language, and we will be practising a simultaneous reading-writing reworking of these texts to experience their language-code operations during the event. Seisure, Seisure 1 Continue reading

Translation is a mode. [at Vienna]

Übersetzung ist eine Form. | Translation is a mode. :: April 9 – May 29, 2010 :: Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, Vienna, Austria.

Just as a tangent touches a circle lightly and at but one point, with this touch rather than with the point setting the law according to which it is to continue on its straight path to infinity, a translation touches the original lightly and only at the infinitely small point of the sense, thereupon pursuing its own course according to the laws of fidelity in the freedom of linguistic flux.” (Walter Benjamin)

Manner, quality, version, condition, design, look, shape, arrangement, fashion, style, way, cut, type, structure and form… a quick search of any dictionary and online translation programme gives numerous results for the English term mode. Continue reading

Art in Translation: International Conference on Language and the Arts :: May 27-29, 2010 :: University of Iceland and the Nordic House, Reykjavik, Iceland :: Call for Papers — Deadline: February 22, 2010

Like so many nations historically on the cultural and geographical fringes of globalized society, Iceland has seen tremendous growth in its presence on the international arts scene in recent years. And like visual artists, musicians, performers, filmmakers, writers, and arts professionals from other small language communities, many Icelanders have-whether by choice or necessity-embraced English as an integral aspect of the creation of and discourse on the arts, sometimes side-by-side with their native language, sometimes not.
