Turbulence Commission: “WoodEar” by Peter Traub

Turbulence Commission: WoodEar by Peter Traub [Needs download, and Speakers/Headphones]:

Bringing the body of the tree to the network is a natural fit — a tree is a network too: roots sensing and absorbing nutrients, leaves sensing and photosynthesizing sunlight, and phloem and xylem running throughout to carry nutrients across the structure. WoodEar attempts to merge the dynamic qualities of this biological network with the digital network. A series of sensors attached to the tree stream data on the state of its environment — light, temperature, air pressure, and wind. This live data is merged with photos and recordings of the tree’s immediate surroundings into a generative application/installation. By downloading and running the application, anyone can access the live environmental experiences of the tree — one that may be very distant from them, but that still shares the same air, sun, earth, and sky.

“Evil Media” by Matthew Fuller and Andrew Goffey

Evil Media by Matthew Fuller and Andrew Goffey, MIT Press:

Evil Media develops a philosophy of media power that extends the concept of media beyond its tried and trusted use in the games of meaning, symbolism, and truth. It addresses the gray zones in which media exist as corporate work systems, algorithms and data structures, twenty-first century self-improvement manuals, and pharmaceutical techniques. Evil Media invites the reader to explore and understand the abstract infrastructure of the present day. From search engines to flirting strategies, from the value of institutional stupidity to the malicious minutiae of databases, this book shows how the devil is in the details.

The title takes the imperative “Don’t be evil” and asks, what would be done any differently in contemporary computational and networked media were that maxim reversed. Continue reading

98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall [us Brooklyn]

Daniel Temkin – 98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall :: October 5-28, 2012 :: Opening: October 5; 7:00 – 11:00 pm :: Devotion Gallery, 54 Majuer Street, Brooklyn, NY (L to Lorimer, G to Metropolitian).

98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall provides drunken encounters with compulsive systems. A program continually preens itself, inserting lines of code to change its visual representation, but along the way, introducing glitches and new patterns of behavior. A therapist program tries to dispense advice as her logic slowly breaks down. Continue reading

Life after New Media: Mediation as a Vital Process

Life after New Media: Mediation as a Vital Process by Sarah Kember and Joanna Zylinska, MIT Press:

In Life after New Media, Sarah Kember and Joanna Zylinska make a case for a significant shift in our understanding of new media. They argue that we should move beyond our fascination with objects — computers, smart phones, iPods, Kindles — to an examination of the interlocking technical, social, and biological processes of mediation. Doing so, they say, reveals that life itself can be understood as mediated — subject to the same processes of reproduction, transformation, flattening, and patenting undergone by other media forms.

By Kember and Zylinska’s account, the dispersal of media and technology into our biological and social lives intensifies our entanglement with nonhuman entities. Continue reading

Reblogged The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google”

The Unconscious Performance of Identity: A Review of Johannes P. Osterhoff’s “Google” by Owen Mundy, Rhizome.org:

As part of this year’s Transmediale festival in Berlin, media artist Johannes P. Osterhoff organized an online collaborative performance of search engine queries, simply titled, “Google.” For one week, Osterhof convinced myself and 36 other participants to add a unique search method to our default web browsers so that everything we “googled” — from the personal to the mundane — became instantly visible online at google-performance.org.

Live Stage: Art that Iterates [us NYC]

Art that Iterates :: September 4-28, 2012 :: Opening: September 7; 5:00 – 8:00 pm :: Macy Art Gallery, Macy Hall 444, 525 West 120th Street, New York City.

Art that Iterates explores change as a condition of the artist’s way of knowing, making, and doing. Everywhere, it seems, change is the only cultural constant. For artists, material playfulness bounces across the threshold that separates technology from craft, pictures from sculptures, and toys from jokes from poetry. Art that Iterates celebrates this remix condition with works that smear the boundaries between art/ non-art, mediate/ immediate, and viewer/ participant. Continue reading

Live Stage: Sense of Planet [au Sydney]

[Oyvind Fahlstrom’s World Maps, Aurel Scheibler] Sense of Planet: The Arts and Ecology at Earth Magnitude – A NIEA Symposium :: August 25, 2012; 9:30 am – 6:30 pm :: UNSW CBD Campus, Level 6 (Combined Theatres T1 & 2), 1 O’Connell Street, Sydney, NSW 2000.

The acceleration of climate change, species extinction, and other ecological crises, enjoins us to find ways of grasping historical and evolving circumstances at earth magnitude. The Sense of Planet symposium concentrates together an international array of artists, eco-theorists and scholars to address the issues and activities of representing the earth in its entirety, and of representing and self-representing regions or localities amid the complex global systems in which they are enmeshed.

Cybernetics Revisited – Towards A Third Order?

IMAC2012 Expanded Proceedings: Cybernetics Revisited – Towards A Third Order?, Leonardo Electronic Almanac (Senior Editors for this volume: Lanfranco Aceti and Morten Søndergaard) :: Call For Papers – Deadline: August 31, 2012.

Von Foerster coined the idea of a ‘cybernetics of cybernetics’ as a way to analyze the control of control and the (set-up of) communication of communication(-systems). The question is if a ‘third order’ cybernetics is emerging… and, if so, what would it entail? (Related) Continue reading

Live Stage: Programming Environments [au Rydalmere]

Digital Media Research Seminar: Programming Environments: Politics and Practices of Urban Sensing by Jennifer Gabrys :: August 23, 2012; 2:00 – 4:00 pm :: EB2.21, University of Western Sydney, Parramatta Campus, Cnr of James Ruse Drive and Victoria Road, Rydalmere, Australia.

Urban sensing technologies are an increasing feature of urban design and media design. From “Senseable” to “Sentient” cities, as well as numerous projects that deploy mobile and embedded sensors to monitor everything from air pollution to traffic patterns, urban processes are now unfolding through wireless sensor technologies. This paper will focus on a particular aspect of urban sensing projects, namely those actual and speculative proposals that suggest wireless sensing technologies are a way to achieve more sustainable and efficient cities.
