Monika Fleischmann's insight:
Douglas Davis, Critic and Internet Artist, Dies at 80

 

By DANIEL E. SLOTNIKJAN. 22, 2014

 

Douglas Davis, who had parallel careers as an art critic forNewsweek and as an artist himself, doing work that explored the possibilities of video and the Internet as creative and interactive mediums, died on Jan. 16 in Queens. He was 80.

His daughter, Laura Davis-Chanin, confirmed the death. No cause was given.

Mr. Davis was a writer before he became an artist, and in addition to his work for Newsweek in the 1970s and ’80s, he was the author of several books, including “Artculture: Essays on the Post-Modern” (1977) and “The Five Myths of Television Power: Or, Why the Medium Is Not the Message” (1993).

He began working on his own art during the creative explosion of the 1960s, and by 1970 had started to experiment with video and performance as mediums.

In 1977, Mr. Davis took part in a project in which he, the video artistNam June Paik and the conceptual artist Joseph Beuys broadcast performance pieces to 25 countries via satellite for Documenta 6, a German art exhibition.

RELATED COVERAGE When Artworks Crash: Restorers Face Digital TestJUNE 9, 2013

Electronic Arts Intermix, a nonprofit organization dedicated to media art, reported that it was the first time live performance arthad been telecast internationally.

Mr. Davis’s segment of the satellite broadcast was titled “The Last Nine Minutes.” It featured him staring out from the television at viewers and pressing his hands against the screen, as if in a futile attempt to either connect or escape.

In 1994 Mr. Davis created “The World’s First Collaborative Sentence,” a participatory work of online art, for the exhibition “InterActions” at the Lehman College Art Gallery in the Bronx. The sentence began “I DID NOT FEEL SEPARATED I FELT VERY CLOSE EVEN THOUGH WE WERE THOUSANDS OF MILES APART,” and invited anyone to add words online.

People did. For the next six years, 200,000 people from around the world contributed all kinds of thoughts, some rambling, some lucid.

The resulting document has the feel of a comments section (before such forums were commonplace) conveyed in an exuberant stream-of-consciousness fashion, emphasized by a riot of type sizes and styles. The languages used ranged from Spanish, German, French and Polish to gibberish. Color printouts of screen after screen of the “Sentence” adorned walls when it was installed in museums. (The Whitney Museum of American Art acquired the piece in 1995.)

Reviewing an art exhibition in which the “Sentence” was on view, Vivien Raynor wrote in The New York Times in 1996, “As noted in the accompanying documentation, the sentence, to which anyone can contribute, will continue into infinity, or until ‘the world has no more to say.’ (Fat chance.)”

Douglas Matthew Davis Jr. was born on April 11, 1933, in Washington, D.C.

“I first entered an art museum by mistake, at age 11, to get out of the rain,” Mr. Davis wrote in an Op-Ed article in The Times in 2000. He received a bachelor’s degree in English from American University and a master’s from Rutgers University before he became a freelance writer and editor and later the art critic for The National Observer. He moved to New York in the late 1960s and joined Newsweek soon afterward.

His work has appeared in the Pompidou Center in Paris, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art in New York.

His first marriage, to the former Mary Virginia Miller, ended in divorce. His second wife, Jane Bell Davis, died in 2005. In addition to Laura, his daughter from his first marriage, his survivors include another daughter from that marriage, Mary Elizabeth Davis; a daughter from his second marriage, Victoria Davis; and two granddaughters.

After leaving Newsweek, Mr. Davis wrote articles and lectured while continuing to produce art.

“The World’s First Collaborative Sentence” eventually became obsolete, crashing later-generation browsers with a blizzard of indecipherable text, but the Whitney was able to restore an updated version of the work to functionality in 2013. People can stillcontribute to that version atartport.whitney.org/collection/DouglasDavis/live/writesentence.html. The museum also managed to keep the frozen original text available online at the artport.whitney.org site as a testament to the work’s origins and the Web of old.

Ikeda is only inspired by science

Ikeda’s composition techniques are inspired by logical sources, such as algorithms and principles of quantum mechanics. His parameters of composition are built on scientific principles and not on individual expression. His music is not a commentary about science and quantum physics – this is a deep misunderstanding. Mr. Jones is right, with his notion, that Ikeda has little to say about advanced sciences. But Mr. Jones is wrong, when he expects Ikeda to have the intention to say something about science. No, Ikeda is only inspired by science, because in creating his work, he is confronted with the troubles of classical symmetry and harmony – an artistic struggle, which he shares with science and contemporary architecture (e.g. Greg Lynn). In fact, that harmony and symmetry have been universal principles of the arts for centuries – from architecture to music – can be traced back by insightful studies, such as Hermann Weyl (Symmetry, 1952) or István Hargittai (Symmetry. A Unifying Concept, 1994), and from Gibbs-symmetry (J. W. Gibbs, Elementary Principles in Statistical Mechanics, 1902) to Wigner-symmetry (1959), and the mathematical concept of Lie groups (i.e. representations of continuous symmetry). ......

Explore Phototrails in the WAVE room at UCSD and learn about a fascinating  research project that uses media visualization techniques for exploring visual patterns, dynamics and structures in user-generated photos. Questions raised by this project are “How do we explore social media’s visual data which contains billions of photographs shared by hundreds of millions of contributors?” and “What types of insights can we gain from analyzing this massive visual universe?”

Phototrails can be experienced at any point during the scheduled time frame. 4-day pass holders get priority viewing.

UC Berkeley scientists have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first interactive map of how the brain organizes these groupings.

Seit vier Jahren organisieren Mika Satomi und Hannah Perner-Wilson im Sommer ein eTextiles-Camp, bei dem sich Wearables-Fachleute aus der ganzen Welt eine Woche lang ihrem Lieblingsthema widmen: Elektronische Schaltkreise in Textilien integrieren.
Monika Fleischmann's insight:

»Dieses Jahr war das Thema ›Geek Out!‹ «, sagt Mika Satomi, Organisatorin des eTextile Summer Camp, »also lassen wir uns hier nerdmäßig so richtig gehen!«. 

Es ist das dritte Jahr, in dem die Camper im Paillard Centre d’Art Contemporain & Residences d’Artistes residieren – einer ehemaligen Papiermühle aus dem 18. Jahrhundert im verschlafenen Örtchen Poncé-sur-le-Loir im Nordwesten Frankreichs. Die Mühle dient heutzutage dazu, zeitgenössische Kunst und Performance in diese ländliche Region Frankreichs zu bringen. Das Konzept geht auf: Die Vernissage der diesjährigen eTextiles-Ausstellung Cuvée 2015 war außerordentlich gut besucht und das Publikum sehr interessiert daran, mehr über das hybride, interaktive Gebiet der e-Textilien herauszufinden.

Eric Satie – Vexations (1893)

„Vexations" hat über hundert Jahre auf dem Buckel und gilt als Paradebeispiel repetitiver Musik. Man kann das Stück heute noch im Technoclub auflegen und die Leute würden komplett ausrasten. Naja, nicht ausrasten, aber zumindest tanzen. Gut, vielleicht auch nicht tanzen. Aber sie würden zumindest interessiert gucken. „Vexations" besteht aus der achthundertmaligen Wiederholung einer Pianofigur und ist damit Techno par excellence, zumindest theoretisch.

Surprisingly Beautiful Album Art Is Illustrated With Human Skin

Surprisingly Beautiful Album Art Is Illustrated With Human Skin | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it
London-based artist Ghostpoet used microscopic images of own skin biopsy to create abstract art.
Monika Fleischmann's insight:

Most music contains some piece of the artist who created it, but perhaps none so much as that from Ghostpoet, whose new album Shedding Skin is covered in microscopic images of the artist's skin.

Ghostpoet, who real name is Obaro Ejimiwe, got together with a team of researchers at University College London to turn a skin biopsy into art, cutting off a tiny chunk of his skin as a sample. Stained purple, pink, blue and an aqua green, the up-close images of the human body become swirling, abstract paintings rather than mere clusters of cells, and provide an array of different covers for fans to choose from.
