TELEPHONE

TELEPHONE | Media Arts | Scoop.it

TELEPHONE works just like the children’s game of the same name. Also called Operator, Grapevine, Phonebook, Ear-To-Ear, TELEPHONE is simple. One person comes up with a message and whispers it to another person. That person whispers to the next person. As the whispered message travels through it the sequence of players, the message changes, it evolves, it surprises.

In our game of TELEPHONE, we whispered the message from art form to art form. So the message could become poetry, then a painting, then music, then film, and so on. Each artist was only aware of the work of art that directly preceded her or his own. Each artist received a work and was told to translate the message into the language of his or her own art form.

The other twist was that when an artist sent back their interpretive work, we then “whispered” it to two or three other artists. Instead of progressing in a single, straight line, our game of TELEPHONE branched out exponentially like a family tree. This interactive, online exhibition presents 315 original and interconnected works in 18 different art forms, created specifically for this experiment by artists from 159 cities in 42 countries. And it all originated with a single message.

Data Cinema at Media Art Futures (Murcia, Spain)

Data Cinema at Media Art Futures (Murcia, Spain) | Media Arts | Scoop.it

In 2006, the artist Carlo Zanni creates a short film hosted in a website that is re-edited every day, adding different content based on data from users who have seen the film. This project is called "data cinema", and refers to the use of cinematic language to create a fiction based on the data obtained.

This selection of digital art works includes several pieces that have no defined duration, and therefore each of them will be screened continuously in the cinema of the Film Archive of Murcia during one day (see program), allowing viewers to enter and leave the room as they wish. Thus, the works not only suggest a transformation of cinematic language but also a new experience for the viewer, who decides the duration of her viewing of each film.

Curator: Pau Waelder

Lunch Bytes Conference
European Edition
Haus der Kulturen der Welt
John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10
10557 Berlin

20-21 March 2015

 

The Lunch Bytes Conference marks the conclusion of a discussion series that took place throughout 2014 in seven cities across northwestern Europe: Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, Helsinki, London, and Stockholm. These panel discussions focused on the increasing significance of digital technologies with respect to art. Leading artists, academics, designers, and curators examined important trends in digital culture and their influences on contemporary art.

This particular two-day event at Haus der Kulturen der Welt delves deeper into the central themes that have emerged during the series of international meetings. Questions to be addressed at the conference include: How can we develop a fruitful discussion on digital culture now that digital technologies dominate our everyday lives and the internet has been declared "dead"? How can we enter a discourse about the internet’s influence on art that moves beyond the "postinternet" hype? And to what extent do we need to redefine concepts such as medium, materiality, activism, and subjectivity, considering the fact that contemporary art practices are so inextricably combined with digital technologies?

User Agent

User Agent | Media Arts | Scoop.it
Curated by Rachel Valinsky

Sunday, March 29, 4-6:30 PM
Judson Memorial Church
55 Washington Square South
New York, NY 10012
RSVP to info@nypac.org



NYPAC is pleased to announce User Agent, a program of performances at Judson Memorial Church on March 29th, 2015.

Curated by Rachel Valinsky, User Agent presents four works that interrogate our relationship to devices, software, and technological apparatuses, often complicating our perception of these systems' cognitive faculties and capacity for agency. Derived from computing, the term "user agent" refers to software that acts on behalf of a user. In other words, the software is a performer, enacting a functional, operational task. Through a sustained engagement with the language and codes of these technologies, the pieces in User Agent blur the boundaries of user and agent, subject and object, agency and automation, and propose new ways we might consider the technologies that shape communication, movement, and speech.

Workshop on opening night:
Build your own POV head band for your phone!Artist

Statment:

‘Point Of View’ questions the current paradigm shift of perspective. What is the role of the hand held screen framing our everyday life? How has gaming shaped the representation of our digital self?

Over the past 100 years the screen has moved constantly closer to our eyes. Most people today spend significantly more time looking at smart-phone screens than at computer screens or TVs (not to mention the cinema screen Games have been an important driving motor for the development of digital culture in the past four decades. The first person view popularized by early computer games like Doom and Duke Nukem has now entered the  real world with the growing popularity of head-mounted cameras. GoPro and Google Glass users generate a constant stream of pictures with their hands in view like a digital avatar. A whole range of digital glasses are poised to enter the market. The Oculus Rift promises the classic idea of cyberspace an immersive reality, while people in public extend their body with a selfie stick. Is the view leaving our body now? Will the picture frame finally disappear?

250 Miles - Crossing Philadelphia

250 Miles - Crossing Philadelphia | Media Arts | Scoop.it

In this project you can follow the daily life in the city. You will see and hear the minute by minute movements and sounds of a selected amount of people and objects. But although you will constantly hear reality, you will only see the movements within Google Earth and Google Streetview.

This art work is about automatic, seemingly objective, registration. And the perception of truth that is in these registrations.

Networked Bodies - Digital Performance Weekender - Watermans

Networked Bodies - Digital Performance Weekender - Watermans | Media Arts | Scoop.it

Nov. 7-9, 2014

Watermans, London, UK

 

In Networked Bodies at Watermans we want to explore networked performance practices with a view to considering how they transform live (embodied, disembodied and trans-bodied) performance practices. We are keen to consider the many, increasingly well documented, exciting possibilities these present to live performance, as well as their potential downsides. Speaking for the devil (so to speak), we ask: do these practices raise any ethical concerns through the use of surveillance and control, fragmentation of space and experience, alienation or even exploitation of their participants? Networked Bodies will aim to look beyond shiny appearances and into the –occasionally dirty– folds of the networks (and the bodies).

The Floating Cinema: Fun Palaces | Media Arts | Scoop.it

Sat. Oct. 4, 2014, 12-6pm

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London

 

Forming part of the Fun Palaces initiative, The Floating Cinema will be transformed into a laboratory of digital happenings with the human body as its subject. Led by artist group Super/Collider and curated by Floating Cinema volunteers, voice and movement become intertwined with colour and image.
Have you ever wondered what the sound of your body looks like? Have you ever seen the image of your own voice?
Exploring the territory where science meets art, digital technology takes the human body on a journey into brand new dimensions through interactive workshops and drop-in activities; Dario Villaneuva will use voice recognition technology to create a visualisation of the human voice while Carl Guyenette explores digital movement mapping through Kinect motion sensors. Sam Bartle’s Tactile Theremin transforms the human body into a musical instrument using our own electrical pulses and Rachel McGivern’s drop-in activity explores analogue technology with a homemade drawing machine

"Body Anxiety:" Sabotaging Big Daddy Mainframe, via online exhibition | Media Arts | Scoop.it

BodyAnxiety.com

Online exhibition opening January 24, 2015
Curated by Leah Schrager and Jennifer Chan

 

Alexandra Marzella, Andrea Crespo, Angela Washko, Ann Hirsch, Aurorae Parker, Endam Nihan, Erika Alexander, Faith Holland, Georges Jacotey, Hannah Black, Kate Durbin, Marie Karlberg, Mary Bond, May Waver, Nancy Leticia, Rachel Rabbit White, Leah Schrager, RaFia Santana, Randon Rosenbohm, Saoirse Wall, Victoria Campbell.

 

Body Anxiety shares the varied perspectives of artists who examine gendered embodiment, performance and self-representation on the internet. Throughout art and film history, the female body and nude has been an ongoing subject in male-authored work. More often than not, the woman’s body is capitalized on in these works while their voice is muted. From the Seventies onwards, female artists employed video and performance to reclaim their bodies from this art historical trajectory. Today, artists use the internet as a platform to create and share their own imagery. While appropriation might be a common practice in contemporary art, using the internet as gender-queer performative space allows artists to question contemporary attitudes towards femininity. In “Body Anxiety” Schrager and Chan have selected a collection of female-empowering artworks to present in one single location in hopes of reshaping pre-existing narrative of gendered appropriation.

Watch This! Revelations in Media Art presents pioneering and contemporary artworks that trace the evolution of a continuously emerging medium.

Christiane Paul's insight:

October 4-6, 2014

 

Our contemporary notions of place have shifted and expanded as technology and mobility touches the lives of local and global communities. Virtual environments, GPS signals, gentrification, psycho-geography, local ecology, and urban decay are some of the themes artists traverse while navigating their relationships with Place.

In this light, we are excited to present Hyperplace Harlem, a three-day festival, on October 4-6.

Hyperplace Harlem's program will feature media and visual artists, readings, performances, workshops, and discussions. Hyperplace Harlem seeks to bring together artists and audiences from various backgrounds and to foster engagement, sparking new discoveries and conversations.
