Clouds of clouds

Commissioned for Interact 15, Clouds of clouds — by Miguel Leal and Luis Sarmento — is a random generator of cloud images. Each new cloud is unique and indexed to a particular time (GMT) on a particular day. It was developed in Perl + MySQL; the database has more than 1,000,000 photos gathered from Flickr between September 10-13 2008, using Flickr API.

This is randomness, and that is altogether different. If absolutely necessary, you can count the stars. A catalogue has been kept of them since Antiquity. But if you ask for a catalogue of the clouds, people laugh at you. There is no such term as cloud, defined as permanent, defined by its borders, by its terms or its terminations. [?] Clouds, whirlwinds, flows, noises, all primary masses without qualities.” — M. Serres. Continue reading

TAGallery: An Ongoing Folksonomic Experiment

Since January 2007 TAGallery asks “What if a link turns into the representative of the artefact, the context and the exhibition at once?”. Until now – July 2008 – there are 500 different answers, represented by 438 artists, 473 artworks, 483 tags, a dozen of curators and still 999 exhibitons to come. Finally it is time to open the folksonomic experiment for public participation. From July 15 to September 15 netizens are invited to contribute link-collections, to re-contextualise the existing material and/or to experiment with tagging as a curatorial practice within the framework of TAGallery. If you are interested in participating please go here and read about how to submit an exhibition. Do not hesitate to contact us via cont3xt-at-cont3xt-dot-net if there are any questions remaining.

Reblogged Signature Event Context

janez_jansa.jpgOn January 28th, 2008, Janez Janša, Janez Janša, and Janez Janša performed Signature Event Context at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, a walking action in the corridors of the Memorial. Each one of them, equipped with a GPS device, covered a different path within the Memorial’s structure this way, together assembling a common signature visible only in the internet. During the performance artists continuously repeated “Jaz sem Janez Janša, Jaz sem Janez Janša, Jaz sem Janez Janša…” (“My name is Janez Janša”). Continue reading

Placeholder: Voiceholders and Voicemarks

cgq_back_cover_collage.jpgBrenda Laurel writes: “[…] Rachel has described our interest in how people leave marks on places. We wanted to give people the ability to “mark” the virtual environments, and we arrived at voice as a convenient modality for doing so. Voice offered several advantages over writing or drawing. Through prosody, voice permits greater expressiveness and personalization than writing; it is also more immediate. Most people are less self-conscious about speaking than about drawing. While drawing would require that we build special virtual drawing tools, capturing voice was relatively easy to implement.

Where and how could voices be stored and re-played? We designed the Voiceholders as virtual record / playback devices. A Voiceholder would capture and store an utterance, called a Voicemark. A “full” Voiceholder (that is, one containing a Voicemark) would play its contents when touched. Continue reading

The Spychip Under Your Skin

Tagged_Essay_with_gfx-1.jpgRFID and the Tagged exhibition by Space Media Arts

The Spychip Under Your Skin by Armin Medosch: Commissioned by [ space.media.arts ] to accompany the Tagged exhibition, Armin Medosch writes about RFID, first introducing the technology and its context. Briefly introducing Bruce Sterling’s ideas about ‘shaping things’ Medosch adds to this some of my his reflections about the contentious notion of techno-social ‘progress’. Based on this contextual analysis the text formulates some of the challenges and possibilities for artists who work with technology in general and the routes chosen by the selected artists in the Tagged exhibition.
