Call: Mash-ups [us Lake Forest, IL]

4210__w9z5645_dd0ab793d1de48018fe553831bfcc4d7.jpgCall for Mash-ups :: To be exhibited February 24, 2010 – April 1, 2010 :: at the Sonnenschein and Albright Galleries, Durand Art Institute Building on the campus of Lake Forest College, IL, USA :: Deadline: 6 January 2011 ::

Contemporary art has seen a marked increase in practices that defy traditional descriptions of media. Categories like painting, drawing, sculpture and photography no longer suffice to describe the full range of processes and forms that artists engage. Even relatively newer media categories like conceptual art, video art and performance art cannot encompass what many artists today do in their studios and in the streets. Many artists approach subject matter conceptually or thematically, choosing materials, processes and forms that resonate with a particular theme, while others complicate formal concerns directly by working through and across many media at once, or sequentially, arriving at products that resist easy categorization.

30 Extraordinary Years! Help Us Make It 31 Now!

nrpa_logo_285.gifDear Friends,

Now celebrating its 30th year of service to artists, New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.

NRPA is the only organization in the United States that has as its core mission the commissioning of networked art by both emerging and established artists.

Although times are tough for many of you, we’re asking you to dig deep and make a contribution (tax-deductible for US Residents) that will enable NRPA to continue providing you with free access to our extraordinary projects: Turbulence.org, Networked_Performance, Networked_Music_Review, Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art), Upgrade! Boston, and New American Radio.

Leonardo Electronic Almanac Rekindled

future1.jpgLeonardo Electronic Almanac has inherited a large archive of papers, articles and information. This material was held in the archive as historical documentation and as part of the revamp of LEA we have decided to revisit this history and compare it with contemporary developments.

LEA rekindled 1 is the first historical comparative issue of the Leonardo Electronic Almanac on the history and contemporary developments at the intersection of art, science and technology. For this first issue of LEA rekindled, our editorial intention is to re-open a dialogue with those who participated and contributed towards building the history of contemporary art interactions with science and technology as well as with the new generations of artists, critical commentators, scientists and technology experts. You can find out more information on: http://ow.ly/3pA9D Continue reading

The Human Drumkit

Researcher Turns His Assistant Into a Human Drumkit :: The human body is a conductor of electricity—a fact exploited by touch screens and, now, a novel way of generating music :: from an article by Christopher Mims in Technology Review :: 12/20/2010 ::

Daito Manabe has a history of conducting quirky, painful experiments in which he administers shocks to the human body — usually his own — powerful enough to cause involuntary muscle contractions. He uses electricity, music, computers and video to expand on what were literally the earliest scientific experiments ever to be recorded photographically — the electrical shocks to the face of Parisians administered in the 19th century by Guillaume Duchenne.

Live Stage: 3XSolo: Gough, Schurer, Hayward [de Berlin]

m_a2bf3c9a4fd04d4c920af35025e2aeb7.jpg3XSolo: Helena Gough, Bernd Schurer, and Robin Hayward :: Friday, December 17, 2010 :: Doors at 9:00 p.m. :: at NK PROJEKT, Elsenstr. 52/2.Hinterhaus Etage 2 12059 Berlin Neukölln :: 0049(0)17620626385 ::

Helena Gough is an English sound artist currently living in Berlin. Her work initially focused upon the collection and manipulation of ‘real-world’ sound material and the exploration of its abstract properties. Occasional deviations into synthetic and instrumental sources are now developing into more prominent ingredients. Each new sound-space is created by taking everything possible from the tiniest element, working to make something from nearly nothing. This reduction in means yields a density and richness of results. Continue reading
