Art in the Age of Dataflow: Narrative, Authorship, and Indeterminacy

networked.jpgRead | Write Art in the Age of Dataflow: Narrative, Authorship, and Indeterminacy by Patrick Lichty — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: How to write a chapter that ostensibly has no end? Who is the author when anyone can edit? Does dialogue occur on listerves and blogs? How do we make meaning of trends? I look at the emergence of nonlinear narrative (1940 – 2006), using the mathematical terms scalar, vector and flow as conceptual or visual metaphors that describe structure, transmission, and social patterns. Scalar examines the set, non-linear narratives of hypermedia and the indeterminate narratives of Wikis; vector, the dialogic narratives of listserves and blogs; and artistic visualizations that seek to reveal patterns as flows of information in networked cultures increase.

Reblogged Florian Cramer’s Floppy Films

Floppy Films, The Netherlands, 2009: Disappeared from our desktops first because of cd-rom burners and then (after regretting losing the floppy’s quick data portability) because of USB keys, the floppy disk is still supported by major OSs, but is often found sleeping in quantities in boxes as old relics. The floppy disk (3.5″) has been the medium of choice for Florian Cramer’s brilliant artwork series (Floppy Films). He has started to play with video editing software and compression codecs in order to make short videos that fit this old medium’s capacity. nkdlunch.mp4 is a film cut-up of the cut-up of David Cronenberg’s film adaption of William Burroughs’ cut-up novel.

David Clark’s 88 Constellations for Wittgenstein (to be played with the Left Hand) is an interactive, non-linear net.art piece that explores the life and philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein through a series of animated vignettes.

The video game as a medium and a style of life has reached its middle age along with the first generation of people who grew up playing them. The non-linear, interactive, processor based narratives, which at first mimicked Hollywood and struggled to convey their simple content with 8-bit processors, gradually became the largest entertainment industry in the history of electronic media.

“Cantata Park” by Metamatic Collective

cantata.jpgCantata Park 1 (2006) [Teleport to Mashup Park, Marni (206, 35, 23)] — by Metamatic (Christopher Dodds and Adam Nash) — is an interactive, spatialised sound sculpture built in the virtual world Second Life. The sculpture is made from 256 individual nodes in a 16 x 16 grid. Each node is embedded with a single word, triggered by a participant’s movement through the work. Each participant creates a random narrative, assembled on-the-fly, and in real-time.

Cantata Park explores the notion of a “cut-up narrative”. By disassembling and reassembling a passage of text, the participant is free to extract unseen meaning from an existing text. Continue reading

“Time Out of Place” by Semiconductor

toop_2.jpgTime Out of Place by Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt) – The Kings Cross area in London is rapidly transforming, creating a city in flux. Semiconductor have captured this moment in human history by documenting the day to day happenings in a short moving image work. The linear nature of time makes us have a very fixed experience of it; constantly stuck in the present. To break free from these constraints Semiconductor have devised a process where by we see the past present and future simultaneously. This act of seeing time reveals a different visual landscape then we are custom to; as multiple patterns of motion emerge to reveal a new rhythm to the city. Bearing witness to these events we perceive a place in transition, beyond our everyday experiences.
