Search YouTube for “baby” and “iPad” and you’ll find clips featuring one-year-olds attempting to manipulate magazine pages and television screens as though they were touch-sensitive displays. These children are one step away from assuming that such technology is a natural, spontaneous part of the material world.

The Carabineers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Carabineers (French: Les Carabiniers) (1963) was the fifth narrative feature film by French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard.

Les Carabiniers (1963) tells the story of two poor men called to serve in battle, lured by promises of the world’s riches. Ulysses (Marino Mase) and Michelangelo (Albert Juross) receive letters from the king of their fictional country that allow them to have complete freedom from consequence while fighting in the war, in return for anything they desire —swimming pools, Maseratis, women— at the enemy’s expense.

Their wives, Venus and Cleopatra (Catherine Ribeiro and Genevieve Galea) encourage them to fight when they hear about the riches. They leave and cross the battlefields and villages, destroying and pillaging as they wish. The pair’s exploits are recounted through postcards sent to their wives, telling tales of the horrors of battle. The previously idealistic idea that the men have of war disintegrates, as they are still poor and now wounded. They return home with a suitcase full of postcards of the splendors of the world that they have fought for, and are told by army officials that they must wait until the war ends to receive their pay.

Snapshotic's insight:

The renowned author and critic Susan Sontag referenced the film in her 1977 collection of essays On Photography. With respect to the "two sluggish lumpen-peasants" returning home bearing postcards of the treasures of the world instead of tangible treasure, Sontag noted that "Godard's gag vividly parodies the equivocal magic of the photographic image." [2]

Sensate Journal Front Page » Sensate Journal

Welcome to Sensate, a peer-reviewed, open-access, media-based journal for the creation, presentation, and critique of innovative projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences.

Our mission is to provide a scholarly and artistic forum for experiments in critical media practices that expand academic discourse by taking us beyond the margins of the printed page. Fundamental to this expansion is a re-imagining of what constitutes a work of scholarship or art. To that end, Sensate accepts and encourages non-traditional submissions such as audiovisual ethnographic research, multimedia mash-ups, experiments in media archaeology, time-based media, participatory media projects, or digitized collections of archival media, artifacts, or maps. Sensate accepts submissions of finished projects, proposals, and reviews of works (monographs, films, exhibitions, etc).

Penelope's curator insight, June 25, 3:30 PM

 

It's always nice to have a refresher on confusing words--especially if we long to be writers. This is our craft; let's learn it. Some mix ups are spotted so often as to be cringe inducing. More obscure words used incorrectly may be excused. Be forewarned: if you read this article, you are now an expert! :)

 

Some of the stumpers: affect and effect, compliment and complement, farther and further, insure and ensure, principal and principle.

 

One with absolutely no excuse? You're and your. Remember this; the contraction stands in for [you are]. Try them out in a sentence. See if it looks rights and makes sense. If you're still not sure? Google the word and find out the meaning!

Sensate Journal Juan Orrantia: Normalcy » Sensate Journal | PhD Art Practice | Scoop.it

Normalcy (moments of imagination and memory) mixes still photography, video and sound as a way of documenting the intimate spaces and moments of life in the aftermath of terror in Colombia. Based in a town along the Caribbean coast where paramilitaries massacred more than 30 men in 2000, I documented moments of the everyday 6 years after the event. Through the banality of life, through the quietness of simple activities and situations many times filtered by my own imagination, I recall the possibilities of remembrance embedded in such moments, especially in places where silence has been a means of survival. The work raises the question of what it means to return to normalcy, to live in a place where the past inhabits the present in unexpected ways.

writing about the research dimension of artistic practice

writing about the research dimension of artistic practice | PhD Art Practice | Scoop.it
This a common concern amongst participants in the Thinking Practices module and once again it came up last week during our debate on writing strategies for the module’s essay: how to combine the artistic approach with the academic requirements, how to write in  a creative manner whilst following the need for rigorous referencing and quoting as a way of legitimising one’s assertions? The Journal of Artistic Research (JAR) is used to similar questioning so its interesting to see what they propose as a their format to publish artistic research.
