Negative Dialectics in the Google Era: A Conversation with Trevor Paglen

Negative Dialectics in the Google Era: A Conversation with Trevor Paglen by Julian Stallabrass :: OCTOBER 138, Fall 2011, pp. 3–14.

In the last seven years, in a series of performances, publications, exhibitions, and installations, Trevor Paglen has explored the world of hidden military projects and infrastructure. One of his best-known series is Limit Telephotography, for which he trained lenses designed for astronomical photography on secret military bases in the U.S., using their very-long-range photographic capabilities to capture images that would otherwise be hidden to civilian eyes. These are the “limits” that lie at the heart of Paglen’s project: the limits of democracy, secrecy, visibility, and the knowable. Continue reading

Radius 18: Imaginary Forces

Radius 18: Imaginary Forces’ CT Room (43:01) :: Continuously looped for a three hour period on December 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 4:00 pm CST.

CT Room is a collage of field recordings taken from various online video chat rooms and instant messenger services. In many of the recordings, the subjects that chose to type responses instead of speak, were unaware that they had left their computer microphones on. In some of these cases, the computer was left on even after the person had stopped chatting. Hart was able to record the sounds of these seemingly empty spaces and the personal conversations that would take place outside the designated chat space. Continue reading

Reblogged Poser, invading digital photo frames

“In a very short time since they appeared, digital photo frames have become so popular that they now regularly invite aesthetic experimentation. In his recent project Poser, Constant Dullaart has offered an ironic view of this media. Slipping inside the device, the artist has designed some chroma keys of himself and, using a cinematic technique, he has added himself into some group portraits found online (one of the distinguishing features of the Dutch artist is his reworking of material from the web). From Leon Battista Alberti onwards, art history is littered with attempts to overcome the physical limits of the frame – to enter into or move beyond it.

Therefore the originality of Poser is not to be found in this invasion, but rather in the artist’s intention to inhabit contemporary technological devices, to become part of them and to understand their specific natures. Continue reading

Live Stage: Controlling Connectivity [online]

Gretta Louw – Controlling Connectivity :: Online Performances: November 2-12, 2011 (see times below) :: Exhibition: November 26, 2011 – January 15, 2012 :: Art Laboratory Berlin.

With the opportunity for connectivity and limitless access to information comes the obligation to be increasingly available to receive and transmit; to be perpetually connected. The consequent erosion of true leisure time, the blurring of the traditional professional / personal, public / private dichotomies, and an information overload are creating hitherto unknown levels of psychological pressure. Continue reading

Narcissism and the Virtual Nude

Welcome to Jack Gamble’s entry for the 2011 Nowa Nowa Nudes.

The goal of this profile is to explore themes of Narcissism and the Virtual Nude in the context of social networking. The premise of the entry surmises, that in participating with Network Culture, we relinquish certain rights and expose ourselves to Deep Web meta-searches, data collection/trade and are left “naked”, often without even realising it.

There are two goals to this profile. The first is to interact as a true facebook account. The second goal is to exist in the context of net.art. My hope is that through status updates, image uploads, wall posts and contacts, the profile will function and interact as it’s own input and output.

One-Year Performance: Google

Since January 1, 2011, interface Artist Johannes P Osterhoff has been publishing all of his search queries with Google in a One-year Performance piece called Google [related].

The term One-year Performance has been coined in the 1970s by performance artist Tehching Hsieh. Of his own free will, Hsieh spent one year captured in a cage, punched a time clock every hour on the hour for one year, or spent one year entirely outside of any building.

Osterhoff updates the genre One-Year Performance and takes it into the context of “post-privacy” and the domain of modern information retrieval. Continue reading
