Live Stage: Surveillance Cinema [us Seattle]

Surveillance Cinema: James Coupe :: August 11, 2011; 7:00 – 8:00 pm :: Henry Auditorium, University of Washington, 15th Ave NE and NE 41st Street, Seattle, WA.

In conjunction with the exhibition The Talent Show (through August 21), The Henry Art Gallery invites you to join artist James Coupe for a screening and discussion of the artist’s recent work with ‘surveillance cinema’ in (re)collector, Surveillance Suite, and the web-based work Today, too, I experienced something… I hope to understand in a few days.

James Coupe is an artist whose work focuses on emergent systems, aesthetic machines, autonomy, and networks. Educated in Fine Art at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) and Creative Technology at the University of Salford (England), his recent projects have included appropriative powerline networks, parasitical cellular phone agents, autonomous robot systems, self-organizing telephone call centres, and installations in which computers use spam to search for the meaning of the Internet.

“Fellow Prisoners” by John Berger

Fellow Prisoners by John Berger, Guernica, July 2011: The best way to understand the world, writes Berger, is not as a metaphorical prison but a literal one. And what better way to inspire solidarity than seeing ourselves (them) as fellow prisoners?

[…] “What is being lived today is new because of its relationship with space.

It’s here that the thinking of Zygmunt Bauman is illuminating. He points out that the corporate market forces now running the world are ex-territorial, that’s to say “free from territorial constraints — the constraints of locality.” They are perpetually remote, anonymous and thus never have to take account of the territorial, physical consequences of their actions.

“Toward a Taxonomy of Public Objects” by Adam Greenfield

[Adam Greenfield @ Systems/Layers Walkshop] Some implications of networked sensing for privacy in public space: Toward a taxonomy of public objects by Adam Greenfield:

[…] “My feeling is that the complexity of this terrain is such that abstract principles and so-called “best practices” aren’t particularly likely to be useful in guiding us toward better decisions unless they’re firmly grounded in a concrete consideration of some present-day actualities. In our attempt to think more clearly about these issues, therefore, we start by considering five real-world informatic systems, all developed and deployed in the past three years. These are arrayed along a spectrum of concern, from a sensor I think of as self-evidently non-threatening, to something I believe the privacy community particularly — and advocates of high-quality public space in general — ought to be deeply troubled by…”

Live Stage: Discontrol Party [fr Paris]

Discontrol Party by Samuel Bianchini (EnsadLab / DRii) :: June 24-25, 2011 8:00 pm – 2:00 am :: La Gaíté lyrique, 3, bis rue Papin, Paris.

Discontrol Party is a dispositif which brings together two worlds: that of state-of-the-art surveillance techniques and that of partying. The dancefloor/ live music venue/ performance space will appear in the dual spotlight of a partying event and a data-driven control and surveillance system (computer vision, RFID, recording by smartphones, etc.) The main space of the Gaíté Lyrique becomes for the space of one evening a night-club set up as a control room: far from light effects or other VJing, the participants, while partying, are confronted by multiple visualizations of the information technology system which observes them and seeks to analyze their behavior. Continue reading

(Im)Mobility Exploring the Boundaries of Hypermobility

Open 21: (Im)Mobility Exploring the Boundaries of Hypermobility:

Advanced communications technologies seem to be paving the way for an increase in physical and motorized mobility. At the same time, these accelerating flows of data and commodities stand in sharp contrast to the elbow room afforded to the biological body, which in fact is forced to a standstill. And while data, goods and capital have been freed of their territorial restrictions, the opposite is true for a growing proportion of the world’s population: border regimes, surveillance and identity control are being intensified at a rapid pace. In short, we are seeing both an uncurbed and uncontrolled increase of mobility and segregating filtrations. This issue of Open explores the internal contradictions of prevailing mobility regimes and their effects on social and physical space. Continue reading

Orbitando Satélites / Orbiting Satellites [es Gijón]

Plataforma Cero of LABoral presents Orbitando Satélites / Orbiting Satellitesa critical and artistic investigation of satellites :: May 10-14, 2011 :: LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Los Prados, 121, 33394 Gijón (Asturias) Spain.

Orbitando Satélites proposes an exercise in the visualisation and investigation of these “rarae aves” that operate in habitually imperceptible frequencies and distances. We listen to them with DIY antenas and radios, showing how to locate them and observe them with free hardware and software.

In the tradition of the independent groups involved in the creation of free/libre infrastructures the meeting unites amateurs and experts, from various countries and cultures, to develop a declaration which poetically sketches this occult ring that surrounds us. Continue reading

Live Stage: Magid + Bunting [nl Amsterdam]

Disclosing The Invisible: Jill Magid and Heath Bunting; Moderator: Huib Haye van der Werf, curator Nederlands Architectuurinstituut :: March 25, 2011; 1:30 pm :: Stedelijk Museum, Paulus Potterstraat 13, Amsterdam.

WikiLeaks’ recent exertions have revealed that a great deal of information is never made public. Their activities, along with the rapid advances in technology and recently in politics, have resulted in shifts in power relations in the public domain. Governments, private organisations, the media and the public at large are seemingly being obliged to reconsider their roles and tasks. The work of Heath Bunting and Jill Magid centres on notions of power and control, and the ways in which these are underpinned by visibility, invisibility and secrecy. Continue reading
