Live Stage: Post-Anatomical Architectures [es Madrid]

Post-Anatomical Architectures – Microdances – Undoing the PanChoreographic — a 2-Day Workshop with Jaime del Val/REVERSO and Common Body :: May 9, 2009; noon – 8:00 pm + May 10; 11:00 am – 3:00 pm :: MediaLab Prado, Madrid :: Call for Participation — email jaimedelval [at] reverso.org.

Surveillance cameras are placed on the skin, pointing to the skin, in different places anywhere on the body, becoming an interface (or intrabody) in an interactive system (or intra-active body) for the performance/ metaformance of Microdances. The nearly legible abstract moving fragments of the body are projected like an architecture, onto buildings as an urban intervention, or indoors, producing an immersive space. Always look at the projection as you move, let the projection move you. Continue reading

Reblogged Voz Alta (Loud Voice)

In 2008 Mexican artist, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, created an art installation in memory of the terrible student massacre that took place in Tlatelolco 40 years earlier.

Participants speak freely into a megaphone placed where the massacre took place on the ‘Plaza de las Tres Culturas’. Based on the volume of the voices, the brightness of a 10kW searchlight is altered. As the searchlight hits the top of the building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it spawns three additional searchlights, one pointed to the north, one to the southeast towards Zócalo Square, and one to the southwest towards the Monument to the Revolution.

Reblogged “Taiwa Hensokuki” by Mohri Yuko

Seeming somewhat gimmicky at first, “Taiwa Hensokuki,” a 2006 work by Mohri Yuko, is comprised of two IBM laptop computers that have speech synthesis software installed – one set to move from text to speech; the other set to speech recognition. Mohri’s work, included in the Extended Senses exhibition, provides a new setting for a technological function by challenging the computers to interact with themselves rather than with the typical human user. The two wall-mounted computers are set up to have a conversation by transmitting and exchanging their data, which in turn cycles and morphs into something mundane and incoherent. In fact, Taiwa means ‘dialog’ in Japanese, and Hensokuki can be translated as ‘transmission.’ Continue reading

“Mother’s Day” by Smadar Dreyfus [be Antwerp]

Mother’s Day by Smadar Dreyfus :: September 13 – November 8, 2008 :: Extra City Center for Contemporary Art, Tulpstraat 79, 2060 Antwerp, Belgium.

Extra City is delighted to announce the premiere of Mother’s Day (2006 – 08), a multi-channel sound and video installation by Smadar Dreyfus (1963 Tel Aviv, lives and works in London). Following on from her seminal large scale installation Lifeguards (premiered at the 9th Inter-national Istanbul Biennial, 2005), Mother’s Day is part of Dreyfus’ investigation into the role of the voice in the constitution of contested public spaces, as well as its function as a mediator between individual and collective and its implication in the negotiation of cultural perspective.

Socrates: What a lucky morning this is turning out to be! I was looking for one virtue and have found a whole swarm of them. — Plato, Meno

“Cantata Park” by Metamatic Collective

cantata.jpgCantata Park 1 (2006) [Teleport to Mashup Park, Marni (206, 35, 23)] — by Metamatic (Christopher Dodds and Adam Nash) — is an interactive, spatialised sound sculpture built in the virtual world Second Life. The sculpture is made from 256 individual nodes in a 16 x 16 grid. Each node is embedded with a single word, triggered by a participant’s movement through the work. Each participant creates a random narrative, assembled on-the-fly, and in real-time.

Cantata Park explores the notion of a “cut-up narrative”. By disassembling and reassembling a passage of text, the participant is free to extract unseen meaning from an existing text. Continue reading

“Speaking at the wall” by Chiara Passa

speakingatwall.jpgSpeaking at the wall – interactive video installation by Chiara Passa (2008) – This interactive video installation synthesises the voice into virtual architecture. The spectator’s voice is recorded from a microphone and live time audio-video processed through the software Quartz Composer. Speaking at the wall develops itself on two walls and the floor. The three screenings around the corner of the three Cartesian axes reconstructs one central illusory perspective. [Quicktime Video]

While the spectator is inside the room and speaks close to the walls, he modifies with his voice (volume and spectrum) the whole environment around him. The words he pronounces draw a new atmosphere… a virtual desert. Continue reading
