Queer Technologies of the #Selfie: Radical Self-Imaging in the Online Performances of Ann Hirsch and Georges Jacotey

Queer Technologies of the #Selfie: Radical Self-Imaging in the Online Performances of Ann Hirsch and Georges Jacotey | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

This paper offers a critical framework through which to appreciate contemporary queer performance online. It addresses how bodies come to be shaped in part by culture, particularly by certain techno-ideological forces in the network age, and considers how these forces structure practices of imaging the self. The paper builds to a reading of artworks by Ann Hirsch and Georges Jacotey, to argue that their queer performances work against the production of coded identities conditioned in digital culture.

Nyloïd by Cod.Act : impulsive organic mechanics - #mediaart

Nyloïd by Cod.Act : impulsive organic mechanics - #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Recently rewarded with an Excellence Awards at Japan Media Arts Festival 2014, Nyloïd reveals itself as one of the most organic robotic performance never made, and as a truly fascinating experience to watch.


Obviously, to experiment the piece Nyloïd, most recent creation of Swiss duo Cod.Act - composed of brothers André and Michel Décosterd – has something immediately impressing. Huge tripod consisting of three nylon limbs of six meters in length animated by a sophisticated mechanical and sound devices, Nyloïd looks like a gesticulating and noisy robotised creature, gifted with a proper life and with a blatant formal dangerousness when you can observe its sprawling members tangling at full speed. ...

Composting Performance : by shu Lea Cheang

This is "compostingperformance-tm2013-720


COMPOSTING THE NET examines the parallelprocess of fermentation and deterioration of our daily foodconsumption extra and our shared digital commons -  the discardedfood scrapes reinvested;  the immaterial wealth/junk of net datarecovered. The food scraps thrown onto a compost heap are layered andmingled until all traces of identities erased. On the net, theabundance of info-data sinks into oblivion with tags attached.  WhileBerlin city boasts itself ECO-BIO-CHIC, it maintains anot-so-successful food waste bin system which the urbanites seldomutilize. During August 22 - 24 project launch at  Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin, COMPOSTING THE CITY calls for Berliners to'ADOPT-A-COMPOSTER" (a la ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY). 12 composting units whereworms and sensors live off and check in on the maturing of rottenmakeover are to be adopted, claimed, maintained and blogged for the 6month cycle.

«Global Direct» (...a new vision of civilization) - a project by Paolo Cirio / (Elena Giulia Rossi) #hacktivism

«Global Direct» (...a new vision of civilization) - a project by Paolo Cirio / 	(Elena Giulia Rossi) #hacktivism | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Paolo Cirio is an Italian activist whose artistic quest coincides with the political and social ones. It progresses within the confines of the media for the purpose of examining its social impact on the current state of affairs as well on the vision of a potential reconquest of democracy enabling it to recover its etymological definition in the «purest» sense of the term (démos/common people and cràtos/rule, that it to say: «rule by the people»). Turbulence.org, the long-standing platform dedicated to commissioning art on line, has produced and is promoting Paolo Cirio’s latest project: Global Direct. It is currently on the internet as well as on various channels of communication as a political campaign, and it was featured in a art venues in the name of an artistic operation. ...

A Trippy Orchestra Made Entirely From Lamps and Electricity / By Liz Stinson / the Quiet Ensemble | WIRED - #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Next time you flip on a lamp, lean in and listen closely for the soft buzz of electricity. You might not be able to hear it on your dinky IKEA task lamp, but it’s there coursing through the cables. This silence is a good thing—most lamps are designed to be that way—unless you’re Fabio Di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli.


The duo of italian artists makes up Quiet Collective, a studio that focuses on sound performance. For their most recent piece, The Enlightenment, they’ve taken the soft hum of electricity and turned it into a booming orchestra of sound and light. ...

Glyphiti by Andy Deck - P2P Foundation / Furtherfield collection

Glyphiti by Andy Deck - P2P Foundation / Furtherfield collection | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Andy's Deck's Glyphiti is an artistic experiment in extending the reaches of public art. Converting the clandestine creativity of the graffiti artist into something more openly available, Deck developed a globally accessible drawing wall. Built of editable 'glyphs' - squares simultaneously reminiscent of hieroglyphics, bricks and pixels - the wall can be drawn on by anyone at any time with any level of skill.


Even though participants are likely to be working alone (like any good graffiti artist surely should) perhaps on their home computer, in actual fact they are anonymous but collaborative artists working on a constantly evolving public artwork. Continuing with the graffiti metaphor, Glyphiti can permeate most corporate firewalls reminding us how adept graffiti artists are at accessing tricky spaces, as well as of the way graffiti turns private structures into very public visuals. ...

NEEN ART MOVEMENT - by Miltos Manetas | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Neen-the meme- was born in 2000. Before leaving NY for Los Angeles, I commissioned to Sausalito-based company Lexicon, to come with a new term for Art. It had to be a word that myself and my friends could use, to call the very peculiar feeling of awe-inspiring beauty which rises sometimes from a few artifacts we encounter in the computer screen.
Lexicon, the company that had come with BlackBerry for Research In Motion, Pentium, for Intel and Powerbook for Apple, had its researchers working for different months before they finally send me a list of about 70 names from which to choose. ...

In the open-air prison which the world is becoming, it is no longer so important to know what depends on what, such is the extent to which everything is one. All phenomena rigidify, become insignias of the absolute rule of that which is.

“Cultivos” by Gilberto Esparza: biology and robotics with a critical vision | VIDA | Fundación Telefónica #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Gilberto Esparza, prizewinner at VIDA 9.0 and VIDA 13.0, is presenting his individual exhibition Cultivos at the Espacio Fundación Telefónica de Lima in Peru. Curated by Tatiana Cuevas, the exhibition brings together three main projects from the artist’s research career: Parásitos urbanos (2006-2008), Plantas nómadas (2008-2013) and Plantas autofotosintéticas (2013-2014). These projects show the intersection between robotics, biology, and special attention to the relationship between nature and urban space, the imbalances between the ecosystem and the action of human beings. In the case of Planas nómadas (Nomad plants), the project can be applied to the city of Lima, whose residual waters are converted to energy to sustain a rudimentary ecosystem made up of protozoa, crustaceans and microalgae which visitors will be able to see at the exhibition. Esparza’s projects, which according to Sally-Jane Norman, co-founder of VIDA, have a “visionary use in their conception and assembly” of available technology, stand out due to the quality of their research and their social and political commitment.

The art of storytelling has always been subject to change. Through the process of digitalization and the accompanying media convergence, we’re now on the verge of a quantum leap. We are no longer viewers, listeners, readers, users, or players.Today, we are “experiencers”, whose roles and behaviors change based on how we use and approach media.

Domestic media artists have been using programming code in recent years to create some astonishing works of art. We look back at how this scene developed over the years and examine four contemporary artists who have defined the way the genre has evolved.


A new generation of domestic media artists has in recent years attracted plenty of international attention. This new breed of artist is typically defined through their tools — often programming code — working as developers at the intersection of art, design, engineering and technology, among other things. ...

Designed by the San Francisco-based experimental architecture firm Future Cities Lab, Lightswarm is a stunning and dazzling wall installation of 430 individual modules employs sensors and LED lights to create a light show in a state of perpetual flux.


Responding to sounds harvested from YBCA’s interior space and the Yerba Buena Garden and nearby city street noise, this site-specific artwork activates the south facing glass façade of the Grand Lobby with playful patterns of light reminiscent of a swarm of flying birds.


During the day, filtered sunlight produces ever-changing flickers of light and shadow, while in the evening the façade is transformed into a dynamic electro-luminescent composition that electrifies the glass wall. ...

Skinstrap - interactive performance by Thomas Israël (video interview) // #mediaart #belgium

Coming from the theatre world, Thomas Israël (Brussels, 1975) approaches the visual arts from a multi-media perspective, challenging the visitor who is invited to take part in the artistic experiment.

By means of more or less sophisticated devices, it is the self-image which he questions by processes of appearance and disappearance, of superposition, thus utilizing the concept of temporality. One will undoubtedly have seized this through these mechanisms including real time animated images or delayed images, whereby the artist evokes the human destiny in forms of contemporary vanities.

The interactive video sculpture “There is No spoon”, refers to the Buddhist concepts of impermanence and dissolution of ego. Here, Thomas Israël inserts the individual portrait in a broader portrait, that of a community living the same experiment. Thus, the video portrait of the curious visitor will be mixed with other faces, known or unknown. It is placed in a group, in something broader than that of its simple experiment. “cadavre exquis” video witch questioning self-image, far from the high tech morphing of Beneton or Michel Jackson from the ‘90, the simplicity of the process leaves room to the dream.
“There is No spoon” belongs to the project “Identity(s)” supported by the French Community of Belgium, Multi-media commission. ...

Udo Noll - Meet the Man Who Wants to Create a Google Maps for the World's Sounds - #soundart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Our sounds are disappearing, and this man is keeping them alive.


"You know when you have the feeling that everything you do all day is very functional and that there's no in-between and you just jump from one spot to the other?"

Udo Noll, a programmer, cartographer and Internet artist, began his map of all the world's sounds, in the midst of the Internet's great mapping craze, to combat that feeling. "I thought it could be very interesting to have a recorder, where you can focus on these in-between spaces, where things tend disappear in the rush of things that you have to do," he told PolicyMic.


In 2005, his  Radio Aporee mapping project was a dark horse among better-publicized and monumental digital efforts to map the world in recent years (such as the Google Maps Street View project or the 3-D scanning projects to preserve digital records of landmarks like Mount Rushmore), but Noll's effort is one of the first ever to map sonic spaces — to build a digital archive the fleeting sounds of our daily lives. ...

Aphrogenea (comes from between clouds and web) - installation by Vincent Evrard - #mediaart

This work was born from a thesis Fixer les nuages wich proposes
a genealogy of clouds leading to the advent of the Internet.

The sea of oil, sterile and without movement fills a space,


Impassive, an object, endlessly watched, shouldn't be there,
Static, it has all the attributes of death but everything will change,
Ordinarily its action is invisible. Here it will reveal himself.
The generative power of this relationship is certain,
Substances mingle, foam emerges.

An art project from the !Mediengruppe Bitnik art collective called "The Random Darknet Shopper" is buying items off Agora using Bitcoins.


From augmented reality, which anticipates the information you'll want just by looking at an object, to smart services that use artificial intelligence to help us manage our workloads, the look, feel and utility of the internet of 2040 is a wide open field.

Already advances in virtual reality technology - Facebook notably bought the virtual reality start-up Oculus VR for $2bn this year - are beginning to change the way we deal with everything from medical science, to military training, to learning difficulties.

To what extent, however, we'll have control over our own data is one of the future's great unanswered questions.
