Live Stage: Tweeting the Revolution [us Cambridge, MA]

Tweeting the Revolution: Agency, Collective Action, and the Negotiation of Risk in a Networked Age — a talk by Beth Coleman (MIT) :: October 18, 2011; 12:30 pm :: Berkman Center, Harvard University, 23 Everett Street, Second floor, Cambridge, MA + webcast live :: RSVP required.

This paper looks at the impact of social media platforms on collective action. In particular, it focuses on spheres of activism where personal risk (bodily or otherwise) is the condition of participation. For this analysis, I discuss interviews conducted with Egyptian activists around the events of Tahrir Square. Issues of copresence, witness, and visibility are central to my discussion. This talk is based on a research paper developed with my coauthor Dr. Mike Ananny. Continue reading

CELL by James Alliban & Keiichi Matsuda

CELL by James Alliban & Keiichi Matsuda:

Commissioned by Alpha-ville for the 2011 festival this interactive installation plays with and proposes alternative landscapes in the technological ether surrounding our everyday movements. Personal identity is increasingly becoming a broadcasted commodity, as a result of this, our constructed personae enmesh and define us. CELL realises our virtual reflections, making digital projections into literal ones. This installation creates luminous clones, exposing these parallel realities as it replicates the body movement of visitors. As the visitor moves through the installation space, personal data mined from internet profiles is randomly tagged onto the alternate, technologically refracted form of the body, revealing the second self while simultaneously allowing us escape from it.

Anonymous: Shared Identity in the Era of Global Networks

CuratingYouTube presents: Anonymous: Shared Identity in the Era of Global Networks — Online Exhibition Curated by Sakrowski with support from Ute Fischer:

Anonymous: Shared Identity in the Era of Global Networks attempts to give an overview of the movement of the Internet-activists ‘Anonymous’ through a comparative and aesthetic investigation in the form of a series of video-grids including videos that were made by the activists in the course of their protests activities.

‘Anonymous’ is applying the medium ‘web video’ in order to announce its activities taking place on the Internet and in real space, as well as call for others to participate. Thus, the videos should be seen as an important interface between the Internet and the so-called real world. Continue reading

Live Stage: La Plissure du Texte [tr Istanbul]

ISEA Istanbul presents La Plissure du Texte — Chair Per­son: Elif Ayiter; Pre­sen­ters: Roy As­cott, Jan Baetens, Elif Ayiter, Max Moswitzer, Selavy Oh :: Sep­tem­ber 17, 2011; 1:00 – 2:30 pm :: Sa­banci Cen­ter Room 1, Sa­banci Cen­ter, Lev­ent.

This panel will un­der­take a close scrutiny of La Plis­sure du Texte, tak­ing into ac­count both its cre­ation in 1983 and its re-cre­ation in 2010, dis­cussing the work in its role as a land­mark of New Media Art His­tory as well as an art work which has shown the ca­pa­bil­ity of re­gen­er­at­ing it­self as an en­tirely novel man­i­fes­ta­tion based upon the con­cepts of dis­trib­uted au­thor­ship, tex­tual mo­bil­ity, emer­gent semi­o­sis, mul­ti­ple iden­tity, and par­tic­i­pa­tory poe­sis.

Heath Bunting and Annet Dekker in Conversation

Conversation between Heath Bunting and Annet Dekker:

“Identity is a construction and we as human beings made it into an entity that consists of something that can possess one or more natural persons and control one or more artificial persons”. Heath Bunting explains where his passion for systems and power structures comes from.

The world of an administrative content provider. About opening spaces, connecting layers and being mobile.

For those unfamiliar with Heath Bunting’s work, it is not immediately obvious what he intends by The System. Its pages, consisting of stark black-and-white spider diagrams, give the impression of an austere post-conceptual practice, but technocratic as this aesthetic may seem, it camouflages a more wayward disposition.’ — Colin Perry on the net artist’s new book “The System,” in Art Monthly, issue 334, March 2010.

Data Bodies, Networked Portraits [pe Lima]

Data Bodies, Networked PortraitsCritical reflections on today’s interconnected self :: until August 28, 2011 :: Fundacion Telefonica, Lima, Peru.

We have been living in a networked world for 15 years now. Interconnected sets of nodes, as sociologist Manuel Castells described networks, seem to have progressively become the context of our everyday life, of our work, leisure and socialization. Our thoughts, interests and desires have moved to immaterial spaces of the digital sphere that have opened accordingly the way for new challenges, experiences and modes of being. While participating, communicating, sharing and collaborating in the digital social networks today, our identities are being shaped within them. Networks have become the new homes, the new environments of intimacy and belonging, which are located nowhere and everywhere at the same time. Continue reading
