Federico Díaz: outside itself [it Venice]

Federico Díaz: outside itself at the Veniice Biennale :: June 4 – September 30, 2011 :: Opening: June 4; 6:00 pm :: Nappa 90, Arsenale Novissimo, Venice.

Federico Díaz, acclaimed Prague-based artist, is creating a self-replicating, site-specific sculptural installation shaped by viewer-inspired data that gives new meaning to the term “going viral.” Imagine thousands of black spheres morphing according to changes in ambient light generated by the fluid interactivity of viewers. A mathematical program enables two robots to build, and together, arrange about 2,000 5-centimeter-diameter balls every 12 hours. Continue reading

“Sea of Tweets” – A Message for Japan

[The artists have placed tweets in front of Mt. Fuji, a symbol of Japan’s strength and perseverance] Sea of Tweets — by Mark Skwarek, Tamiko Thiel, and John Craig Freeman — allows viewers to tweet wishes to those in Japan affected by the terrible earthquake and tsunami of March 2011. Participants tweets from around the globe are transformed into paper cranes; the first crane tweets are already in place.

Tweets will also be placed around the northeast coast line of Japan focusing on areas affected by the tsunami, but viewers might not be able to see them there until the infrastructure is restored. In the meantime, paper cranes will be placed in other parts of Japan where people can see them without problems. The rest of the world will be given the telepresence experience of Japan’s coast. Once conditions return to normal in the areas affected by the disaster, viewers will also be able to see the cranes on-site, riding on the waves of the Pacific coast.

“Re-Locating” by Yasmine Abbas

networked.jpgRead | Write Re-Locating by Yasmine Abbas — in Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art):

ABSTRACT: Stress is an undesirable offshoot of any kind of travel, forced or voluntary. To soothe the stress of travel, today’s mobile individuals — neo-nomads — engage in tactics of re:location, the practice of re-assembling a familiar and cushioned personal space, an image of home. The spaces and objects we design with mobility in mind should focus on bringing comfort to these mobile individuals. We learn however that in today’s consumerist, “liquid” and hypermobile world, linkages between PIGS — People, Information, Goods and Spaces — matter more than PIGS themselves. The territories of neo-nomads relate to linkages and are dynamic as a result.

Journeys Across Media 2011: Space in Our Time

[Image from Adrift] Journeys Across Media 2011: Space in Our Time: Exploring the Frontiers of Screen and Live Performance Space :: May 6, 2011 :: University of Reading, UK :: Call for Papers – Deadline: January 30, 2011.

Space in performance and media is constantly shifting. Emerging technologies and new models of physical spaces have radically shaped our conceptions and experiences of performing, the world and our performing within that world. Artistic experimentation in live performance tests and contests space as a neutral/ political/ liminal/ active zone. Through innovative spatial delineations and/or site specific work, contemporary theatre and performance challenge conventions of text and space, performance and institution and performance and audience.

“Distance versus Desire” by Eric Kluitenberg

Distance versus Desire* by Eric Kluitenberg:

Clearing the ElectroSmog

The desire to transcend distance and separation has accompanied the history of media technology for many centuries. Various attempts to realise the demand for a presence from a distance have produced beautiful imaginaries such as those of telepresence and ubiquity, the electronic cottage and the reinvigoration of the oikos, and certainly not least among them the reduction of physical mobility in favour of an ecologically more sustainable connected life style.
