Joi Ito interviewed by Juliet Bartz. About MIT media lab’s Disobedience Award

Joi Ito interviewed by Juliet Bartz. About MIT media lab’s Disobedience Award | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

In the 1980s, Joi Ito traded in library tables at the University of Chicago for turntables at Chicago’s Smart Bar. But his attempt to evade academia wouldn’t stick.

 

The two-time college dropout became director of the MIT Media Lab in 2011, making the 50-year-old an academic administrator at one of the most renowned universities in the world. Before that, he was an entrepreneur who started a number of his own companies and invested in the likes of Flickr, Twitter and Kickstarter

 

A proud supporter of “responsible disobedience” — the lab is awarding its first $250,000 Disobedience Award this July — Ito is in Chicago Wednesday as a Chicago Ideas speaker. He will appear with IDEO Chicago Executive Portfolio Director Neil Stevenson at an event to discuss Chicago’s role in “embracing culture, art and experimentation.”

 

Blue Sky talked to Ito — whose interdisciplinary media lab focuses on the creative use of digital technology, sciences, arts and design — about the disobedience mindset....

Media Archaeology Lab : the past must be lived so that the present can be seen... (past solutions for present problems)

Media Archaeology Lab : the past must be lived so that the present can be seen... (past solutions for present problems) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Founded in 2009 and generously supported by the College of Media, Communication and Information as well as the Department of English at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the motto of the Media Archaeology Lab (MAL) is that “the past must be lived so that the present can be seen.”

 

Nearly all digital media labs are conceived of as a place for experimental research using the most up-to-date, cutting-edge tools available. By contrast, the MAL – which very well might be the largest of its kind in the world – is a place for cross-disciplinary experimental research and teaching using still functioning media from the past. The MAL is propelled equally by the need to both preserve and maintain access to historically important media of all kinds – from magic lanterns, projectors, typewriters to personal computers from the 1970s through the 1990s – as well as early works of digital literature/art which were created on the hardware/software housed in the lab.

 

Just in terms of our collection of digital devices, we currently have 35 portables/laptops, 73 desktop computers, 22 handheld devices, 8 other computing devices, and 10 game consoles.

Les Arts Codés - Un lieu de convergence entre savoir-faire traditionnels et numériques | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Depuis les années 80, l’activité humaine poursuit sa métamorphose « digital » passant d’îlots automatisés à une numérisation globale de la société, toujours plus hybridée à notre travail, notre créativité et notre intimité. LES ARTS CODÉS est un lieu de recherche, de création et de production partagé par plusieurs partenaires qui investissent la conjugaison des savoir-faire traditionnels et de la programmation, vers un possible entre artisanat et micro-industrie numériques.

Displays | EnsadLab research group - expérimenter les formes de l’exposition dans un contexte post-numérique | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Proposé et coordonné par Thierry Fournier (artiste, curateur et chercheur), avec J. Emil Sennewald (critique, journaliste et enseignant-chercheur), le groupe de recherche Displays vise à interroger et expérimenter les formes de l’exposition dans un contexte post-numérique, qui se caractérise par une présence permanente du numérique et du réseau dans l’ensemble de la culture et des pratiques. Cette évolution a d’ores et déjà transformé les œuvres, les modes de collaboration, les pratiques curatoriales, la critique et la médiation, le public et son regard. Elle implique aussi une prise en compte de la matérialité du numérique et de ses processus, après une période historique marquée par une idéologie de la dématérialisation. Une porosité s’instaure également entre les pratiques, comme par exemple celles des artistes, des commissaires et du public dans le cas de la curation – pratique de réinterprétation et d’échange attestant du statut conversationnel des médias...

 

The research group Displays – created and coordinated by Thierry Fournier (artist, curator and researcher) with J. Emil Sennewald (critic, journalist, lecturer and researcher) – aims to question and experiment with the exhibition forms in a post-digital context, that is pervaded by the presence of digital technology and the Internet throughout both culture and practices. This evolution has already transformed artworks, collaboration modes, curatorial practices, art criticism, art education and outreach, audiences, and how they look at art. It also entails an acknowledgment of digital materiality and of its processes, after a historical period marked by an ideology of dematerialization. Furthermore, a certain porosity has set in between practices – for example, between those of artists, curators and audiences, in the case of curation – a practice that involves reinterpretation and exchanges, which attests to the conversational status of media...

Our interests are diverse, and we do not agree on everything. Some of our research includes privacy, surveillance, code, art, social hacking, race, capitalism, anonymity, the infrastructures of the 21st century and useful skills in tangible situations.

 

Members of Deep Lab are engaged in ongoing critical assessments of contemporary digital culture, and work together to exploit the potential for creative inquiry lying dormant in the deep web. Our research is conducted independently as well as collaboratively. The process is manifested by our network and both seperate and shared knowledge/expertise between members. Some of our work is secret, anonymous and private. Other inquiries are public; released as lecture series, publications, contemporary art, public programming and/or performances...

Deux ans après la création de l'Institut Culturel, Google va aujourd'hui encore plus loin en ouvrant un espace physique de 340 m2 au sein du Googleplex parisien : Le Lab de l'Institut Culturel. Une équipe dédiée y travaille afin de faire de la technologie une ressource essentielle à la culture. 

 

Les missions du Lab de l'Institut Culturel

 

  • Favoriser les échanges : le Lab est un lieu de partage avec la communauté culturelle afin d’étudier l'usage des nouvelles technologies et de détecter les tendances de demain. Des ateliers technologiques, des séminaires et des artistes en résidence permettront de faire de ce lieu un véritable hub où experts culturels et ingénieurs pourront partager leurs idées, mettre en oeuvre des projets d'innovation et travailler sur de nouveaux prototypes.
  • Encourager la recherche et le développement : Le Lab a pour vocation d'encourager la recherche et le développement au service de la culture. C’est un nouvel outil au service du projet de l’Institut : donner accès aux richesses culturelles au plus grand nombre, en nouant des partenariats dans le monde entier. C'est un incubateur d’idées et une invitation aux musées, archives, communautés créatives, startups culturelles, professionnels de l’éducation, experts et artistes à nous rejoindre pour imaginer quelles solutions nous pouvons élaborer ensemble. 
 
*Le Lab de l'Institut Culturel n’est ni un musée, ni une galerie. C’est un espace de travail et d’échanges. Il ne sera pas ouvert au public en dehors d’événements ponctuels.

HyperMedia's labs - Université de Malte | Hacktivity : L'experience de l'image | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Le département Communication / Hypermédia défend l’Image. L’Image avec un grand « I » au sens d’informations visuelles. Dans une société dite de l’image, ce département s’affirme en ce début du XXIème siècle au cœur de l’Europe et du Monde, au cœur des questions de ses contemporains sur la création et diffusionde données informationnelles liées aux médias numériques.


A la frontière étendue et poreuse entre le quotidien, l’entreprise, l’art et les médias, la communication n’est pas ici considérée comme un système ou un modèle mais comme une invention permanente, à expérimenter dans sa dimension critique, esthétique et professionnelle.

.

Associé à ce département, G-SICA, groupe interlaboratoire sur l’Image, la Communication et les Arts numériques (Université de Savoie), composé de chercheurs et d’artistes, développe une recherche volontairement interdisciplinaire. Des travaux, engagés autant sur les territoires de l’anthropologie visuelle que la communication, la sociologie des usages, les scénarios interactifs, le motion design, l’art vidéo, la réalité augmentée, les dispositifs immersifs, les installations interactives (alternate reality games), les serious game ou le documentaire, les arts numériques… interrogent la place du corps. Comment celui-ci fait signe et inversement pourquoi le signe – associé à ce dernier – devient un langage du corps ? Plusieurs nouveaux projets sont actuellement en cours de réalisation…

What Is A Media Lab? | situated practices in media studies

What Is A Media Lab? | situated practices in media studies | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Media labs are liminal but increasingly powerful spaces in many contemporary settings. They appear in universities and colleges, wedged uneasily between traditional departments and faculties. They’re also in basements, warehouses, strip malls and squats. They are stable to varying degrees; many have long-term addresses and an itinerant roster of occupants. Some pop up in one location for a few days, then relocate to another. Sometimes they’re even in mobile trucks in the streets, bringing tools and expertise to children in schools and the general public. As clusters of tools and talent streamlined to produce economic value, labs sometime align with the most ruthless of venture capitalists; in other cases, they are free and open for all to use, disdainful of all commercial motivations.

 

Despite their sudden visibility due to the burgeoning of the digital humanities, media labs have a surprisingly long history. As part of the historical avant-gardes, media arts labs were the sites where the new materials and aesthetics of technical modernity were developed. They often share a common ideology, tied not just to the neoliberal drive to privatize, innovate and disrupt, but to long-standing modernist ideas about creative destruction, quantification and the value of scientificité...

Visitors become researchers in EARTH LAB, a fascinating mix of exhibits, participative infographics and a discursive ancillary program. The artworks are designed to stimulate creative processes and encourage people to look at the Earth from a very different perspective for a change. But the site of this rethinking process isn’t a museum or some other established institution; it’s the basement of the mothballed Red October chocolate factory in the heart of Moscow.

SPEKTRUM is a space of convergence for cultural communities and transdisciplinary groups emerging and operating in and off Berlin. The project aims to bring confrontation, open knowledge and a platforms for idealisation, realisation and presentation of technology-based artworks, science-focused events and futuristic utopias based on the principle “do-it-together-with-others”. Above all, we are an open space promoting participatory processes to co-define and co-design a social and physical playground for curiosity and critical understanding.


The venue is part of a monumental architecture in the heart of Kreuzberg/Neukölln realised by Franz Hoffmann and Bruno Taut, one of the main expressionist architects of the modernist period. The inner space is characterised by a multi-layered approach to heights, with an unusual 5 meter high ceiling for the event room and other sections organised as split-levels. These architectural qualities tell us a story of planes and volumes, offering guests a surprising walk around with secret spots to discover.
