Monika Fleischmann's insight:

Calling all artists, food scientists, designers, chefs, poets, dancers and musicians. Science Gallery London are hungry for your ideas for installations, events and activities for our FOOD season.

Everyone knows we live with a broken food system that means one billion people are malnourished and two billion are overweight. But we're interested in hearing some of the good news rather than the bad. Are you an expert on the increasing importance of insects in our kitchens? Have you been working on turning fermentation into an artform? Are you adept at crafting multi-sensory dinners that taste like Iceland’s volcanoes? Have you been thinking creatively about Gandhi's research on nutrition? Or do you want to make medicinal ice-cream out of our local herb gardens?

EGO – interactive installation by Klaus Obermaier with Stefano D'Alessio & Martina Menegon (2015) #mediaart

The interactive installation EGO re-stages and reverses the process of alienation by enhancing and deforming the mirror image by the movements of the users.


Although an abstraction, it quickly becomes the self and reestablishes the tension between the real and the symbolic, the Ego and the It, the subject and the object.

Carsten Nicolai – A little grid more (interview) - #mediaart

Carsten Nicolai is one of the most renowned artists working at the intersection of art and science and infamous for his minimalist approach.

 

Having exhibited internationally at Documenta X and the Venice Biennale, he is also an active musician working under his music alias Alva Noto and has staged performances with Ryuichi Sakamoto at the Guggenheim NY to the Centre Pompidou in Paris. This week, Gestalten is releasing his new book Grid Index, the first comprehensive visual lexicon of patterns and grid systems. A reference book for designers, visual artists, architects, researchers, musicians and mathematicians,

 

Nicolai has discovered and unlocked the visual code for visual systems into a systematic equation of grids and patterns. We met Carsten in his studio in Berlin Mitte to talk about art, grids, books and the graphical language of music.

La Chambre Rouge par Julien Grosjean - #soundart #mediaart

(English below )
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
La Chambre Rouge sera présentée dans le cadre du Mirage Festival le Samedi 28 Février 2015 à Lyon
miragefestival.com/
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
La chambre est rouge et la porte ouverte. Il y a des traces de passage.
Des voix résonnent du dehors tandis que je suis là. Je tourne, entre la mémoire et l’oubli.

La Chambre Rouge est une installation qui capte, enregistre, diffuse et altère des paroles rassemblées ici et là.
C’est une expérience sensible et un objet de réflexion sur les thèmes du temps, de la mémoire, de l’oubli et de l’identité.
Des paroles, extraites d’interview, sont diffusées et progressivement effacées par le dispositif,
auquel est aussi connecté un micro, ouvert en permanence, invitant le public à témoigner de sa présence.

Par son apparence fragmentée et la coexistence de deux boucles de bande magnétique, captant les mêmes information du dehors mais les reproduisant autrement, l’installation évoque symboliquement la coexistence en notre être de différentes mémoires (consciente, inconsciente, corporelle, émotionnelle...) et de leur rapport différents au temps, à l’altération et à l’oubli.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The room is red and the door open. There are traces of passage.
Voices are sounding from outside while i am here. I’m turning, between memory and oblivion.

La Chambre Rouge is an installation that perceives, records, emits and transforms words gathered from here and there.
It is a sensitive experience and an objet issued from the reflexion about the subjects of time, memory, forgetting and identity.
Words, extracts from interviews, are played and progressively erased by the device, to wich is also connected a
microphone that records permanently , inviting an audience to share its presence.

By its fragmented appearence and the coexistence of two differents tapes’ loop that are recording the same exterior information, but reproducing them differently, the installation symbolically evoke the internal coexistence of different memories ( conscious, unconscious, corporal, emotionnal) and their different relation to time, alteration and oblivion.

Game-Based Learning: What it is, Why it Works, and Where it's Going

Game-Based Learning: What it is, Why it Works, and Where it's Going | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. –William Butler Yeats

Monika Fleischmann's insight:
Categorized in: NMI White Papers

Introduction

Deconstruct the fun in any good game, and it becomes clear that what makes it enjoyable is the built-in learning process.


To progress in a game is to learn; when we are actively engaged with a game, our minds are experiencing the pleasure of grappling with (and coming to understand) a new system. This is true whether the game is considered “entertainment” (e.g., World of Warcraft) or “serious” (e.g., an FAA-approved flight simulator).


The implications of delivering game experiences for education and training are enormous. In the US, nearly 170 million people played computer and videogames in 2008 , spending a record $11.7 billion . Harness the power of well-designed games to achieve specific learning goals, and the result is a workforce of highly motivated learners who avidly engage with and practice applying problem-solving skills.


Because of good game design, more than 11 million subscribers spend an average of 23 hours per week immersed in World of Warcraft. A growing core of game-based learning experts use the same design principles to make it compelling for surgical students to practice and hone proper laparoscopic techniques on a virtual patient , or inspire first responders to frequently rehearse and sharpen their training in a simulated hazardous materials emergency . The emerging truth: the same factors that make well-designed games highly motivating also make them ideal learning environments.


What is Effective Game-based Learning, and Why Does it Work?


When education or training feels dull, we are not being engaged and motivated. In other words, we’re not really learning. “Learning” does ...

Concordia University Chicago - Art Lessons

Concordia University Chicago - Art Lessons | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it

Concordia University Chicago’s link to Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories, a tool to promote visual literacy through artwork. 

Free, downloadable resource with ten lessons per grade level.

Monika Fleischmann's insight:

Recognizing visual cues in a work of art as well as being aware of the times and conditions in which an artist lived enables students to better interpret its imagery, draw conclusions about its effectiveness, and speak critically about the art.

Art education research indicates students enjoy a richer art experience and improved visual comprehension when the following four disciplines are included in the art experience: Art History (the study of past artists), Art Aesthetics (response to art), Art Criticism (discussion of art using art vocabulary), and Art Production (hands-on making of art). Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories focuses mainly on art history by providing a biographical sketch of the artist, an image of one of the artist’s specific works and details about that work. It also provides class discussion questions and ideas for hands-on exploration. Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories is a free, downloadable resource with ten lessons per grade level.

The development of Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories was funded by a grant from the John and Frances Beck Foundation of Chicago, Illinois, whose mission is to initiate and support projects that effectively promote literacy and learning among children, youth, and adults.

High Security Borders

High Security Borders | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it
Accelerated through the fear from the attacks of 9/11 and all what followed, the so called ‘Western Society’ is constructing the greatest wall ever build on this planet. On different building sites on all five inhabitable continents, walls, fences and high-tech border surveillance are under construction in order to secure the citizens and their high quality of life within this system. The fall of the Berlin Wall was described as the historical moment that marks the demolition of world’s last barrier between nation states. Yet it took the European Union only six years to create with the Schengen Agreement in 1995 a new division only 80km offset to the east of Berlin.

Seth Dixon's insight:

This map shows that hi-tech political surveillance of borders is highly correlated with the core areas of the global economy and some of the most attractive immigrant destinations.  

 

Questions to Ponder: What else do you see in this map?  What does this say about the world order?  Are there patterns that this map reveals/conceals?

new world wall

Miles Gibson's curator insight, February 13, 2015 11:04 AM

Unit 4 political geography 

This article explains how the world is filled with division and segregation. Some of the most notable are the walls are the wall in berlin, the wall/border/river/fence between the u.s. and mexico and the border between north and south Korea is the most notable walls.

This article relates to unit 4 because it shows how people, through borders, have divided them through history creating new politics, culture and borders themselves. The political processes involved can change the policies and shapes of nations in the world.

Deep Lab documentary & book (2014) - by The STUDIO at CMU - #feminism

Deep Lab is a congress of cyberfeminist researchers, organized by STUDIO Fellow Addie Wagenknecht to examine how the themes of privacy, security, surveillance, anonymity, and large-scale data aggregation are problematized in the arts, culture and society. During the second week of December 2014, the Deep Lab participants—a group of internationally acclaimed new-media artists, information designers, data scientists, software engineers, hackers, writers, journalists and theoreticians—gathered to engage in critical assessments of contemporary digital culture. They worked collaboratively at the STUDIO in an accelerated pressure project, blending aspects of a hackathon, charrette, and a micro-conference.

internet art on FADWEBSITE - #netart | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it

Web Art, or Internet Art, or Net Art, is art that is accessible to anyone with an internet connection (and a right browser). Net art can roughly be described as a website that is an art work in itself. Like other digital art Net Art is transient – it exist only while the technology, software, and code are compatible. Net Art must also be constantly supported and unkept otherwise it will disappear, many examples of Net Art no longer exist because the domain name expired. So this week I will be sharing my 5 favourite examples of Net Art, that will hopefully still be around as this is published.

Festival Tropisme 2015 - Teaser - 25.02 > 15.03.2015 @ La Panacée

Pour sa deuxième édition, Tropisme déploie une vaste machine

à habiter en répondant à l’invitation de La Panacée à occuper ses murs à travers une programmation qui mêlera installations, concerts, créations architecturales et culinaires, rencontres, projections, jeux vidéo, boums et ateliers. Au centre de ce projet, le collectif EXYZT signera là sa dernière action avant de tirer sa révérence après 12 ans d’activités. Composé d’artistes, d’architectes, de constructeurs, de botanistes et de graphistes, EXYZT a été remarqué notamment en 2006 pour leur participation à la Biennale d’architecture de Venise. Pour Tropisme, le collectif transformera La Panacée en lieu de vie modulable, pensé comme une boite à outils permettant de multiples déploiements.

 

Cette machine à habiter s’emparera des espaces d’expositions qui deviendront tantôt salon de conversations, ciné-club, chambres à coucher, mini-discothèque pour enfants, plateau radio, imprimerie… Du 25 février au 15 mars, Tropisme fait de La Panacée un vaste terrain de jeu aux allures de caravansérail.

The complete records of this investigation can be found at cms.mit.edu/research/theses.php and present the reader with an elaborate discussion of the key players, institutions and discourses on aesthetics, economics and exhibition methodologies that characterize Internet art's relation with the traditional institutions for contemporary art. The sociological analysis of the past and current situation aims to offer a solid ground for extrapolations and predictions for Internet art's future as an art world, and its relation to the traditional art institutions. An essay based on this research is scheduled to be published in February 2008 in "The Weight of photography" (tentative title).

Teaching Cultural Empathy: Stereotypes, World Views and Cultural Difference

Teaching Cultural Empathy: Stereotypes, World Views and Cultural Difference | [New] Media Art Education & Research | Scoop.it

"I am torn about how to teach these two ideas about cultures and societies all around the world:

People and cultures are different all over the world.People and cultures are the same all over the world.

These points may seem like a contradiction, but when put into proper context they teach important truths about culture."


Via Seth Dixon
Monika Fleischmann's insight:
Seth Dixon's insight:

I've posted several resources here about some of the intriguing cultural interactions in the Middle East stemming from globalization.  I thought there was some excellent public dialog after the Charlie Hebdo shooting, but I was disheartened by some of prejudiced responses that I've heard since then--that inspired me to pull some of them together in this this article I wrote for National Geographic Education.

Avery Liardon's curator insight, March 23, 2015 9:48 PM

Unit 3:

Shines insight on stereotypes that are commonly used throughout the world. Reading this article really made me think about stereotypes that are so commonly used they are considered acceptable. It's a ridiculous idea to think that all people under a culture act and behave the same way. 

Emily Coats's curator insight, March 24, 2015 12:06 PM

UNIT 3 CULTURE

This article is written to compare and contrast various ways to teach young school children about global cultures. On one hand, we can relate all cultures to each other, due to their common goals and views. For example, all families around the world aim to do what's best for each other, love and cherish one another, and try their hardest to succeed economically. On the other hand, cultures are extremely different around the world, with different music, clothing, and underlying views on life. We can continue to say that popular culture has diffused so greatly, with advanced technologies and means of transportation, so it has influenced and homogenized our landscape quite a bit. Folk culture is obviously still a powerful force, but popular culture does have some effects around the world. I believe that children need to understand the importance of maintaining diversity thy preserving folk culture but they also need to acknowledge the pros and cons of the global diffusion of popular culture and how it connects us at a global scale. 

Danielle Smith's curator insight, April 12, 2015 12:21 AM

I think Teaching Cultural Empathy: Stereotypes, World Views and Cultural Difference is a helpful article for teachers to read. This article considers ideas I constantly come back to, whilst collecting resources and ideas for teaching students about cultural diversity and identity. How do I teach students, that ‘people and cultures are different all over the world’ (Dixon, 2015, April 2), but also the same?

Dixon suggests that we need to teach that people and cultures worldwide are the SAME and DIFFERENT simultaneously.  In this way, students can appreciate the rich diversity of cultures and societies, whilst at the same time learning values of humanity and empathy, which unite us all.

 

I believe by recognising and appreciating the rich cultures of students in the classroom, we can explore and learn about cultural diversity in an honest, rich and non-stereotypical way and allow students to feel valued at the same time. In addition, as students know each other, this helps them relate to ‘people from other places, who speak other languages’ and follow different religions to their own (Dixon, 2015, April 2). Furthermore, this should help increase intercultural understanding in the classroom by developing a ‘socially cohesive’ environment that ‘respects, and appreciates cultural, social and religious diversity’ (MYCEETA, p. 7).

Conductor-turned-filmmaker, Christian von Borries’s films blend Pop appeal with Capitalist critique

Monika Fleischmann's insight:

Christian von Borries is known as a conductor and deconstructor of classical music. After a career as a solo flautist at the opera house in his native Zurich, he became conductor of the same orchestra. But the prospect of tending the sacred cow of classical music only bored him. He gave up his career and moved to Berlin where, in 1998, he founded musikmissbrauch (music misuse) and, five years later, Psychogeographie. These series of concerts and performances aimed to recontextualize well-known classical music. ‘Misusing music’ meant emancipating oneself from the role of a humble performer of an immutable score, for example by mixing the music with samples or by taking fragments and supplementing them to make new pieces. The autonomous performer is an artist in her own right or – as Von Borries likes to put it more profanely – a ‘user’. ‘Psychogeographie’, in the original sense of this term coined by the Situationist International, dealt with the influence of geography and topography on the listener’s mind: what happens to Mozart if his music is listened to in a public toilet? Or to opera if it is performed beside an autobahn? Inside a former CargoLifter airship hangar near Berlin, for example, Von Borries had the audience pushed around the orchestra in hospital beds. And just before it was demolished, he chose the stripped-out remains of East Germany’s Palast der Republik on Berlin’s Schlossplatz as a performance space for the audience to wander about. All these various projects were about freeing classical music from the moribund temples of bourgeois culture rather than repeating the tired gesture of épater le bourgeois.

Since 2010, Von Borries has also been making films. ...
