A/V Net performances now online.

And what seems to be of popular interest these days by the many visitors
to the site is, the A/V net performances on Visitors Studio
http://www.furtherstudio.org/live/, which the net art group Furtherfield
http://www.furtherfield.org has generously offered for us NoiseNiks to
creatively abuse at will;-)

We now have last years A/V net performances on Visitors Studio archived,
available through the following artists links in the Editors Forward.
They feature Mark Francombe, John Kannenberg, Chris Vine and french A/V
duo 2Toms. Stretching the studio's capabilities to it's limits these
performances are some of the most innovative to date. Highly recommended
viewing / listening.


'Exploration in Sound' compilation.

Due to the encouraging success from various radio stations such as
resonance fm (UK) and Spanish radio, and many visitors downloading the
Net Label content, with some pretty cool feedback. We are now feverishly

Meet Her On the Moon and 21st Street

(0)

One of the most significant electronic musicians to emerge from the postwar era, Pauline Oliveros is known for meditative compositions that are inspired by the inner sounds and psychic states of the life (or in some cases inanimate objects) around her--a process she calls Deep Listening. To put it another way: some people ruminate on existential states; she mics them. And she also broadcasts them in diverse ways: around the world, across the dial, through the Internet, and even, via satellite, to the moon. On January 26th, she will perform at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center with Brown University's Meme Improvisation Group (MIG) and the Tintinabulate Ensemble, a group of improv musicians she founded at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's I-Ear center, where she currently teaches. Unlike your average rock show, at which the band might only achieve harmony after several rounds of Guinness, Tintinabulate Ensemble performances coalesce spontaneously through the 'intuition, play, and sympathetic resonance' of the artists. Previously, MIG and the Ensemble have engaged in two Distance Performances, playing together remotely through the Internet. Hosted by the Upgrade!, this event brings them together for their first, live and in-person performance. While broadcast out of Eyebeam's 21st street headquarters in New York, their collaboration--under Oliveros's guidance-- will surely call upon more subliminal areas and perhaps unearthly ones as well. - Lauren Cornell

The Stuff of Culture

(0)

Via: Felix Stalder

[This is the opening essay of a new book of mine, called "Open Cultures and the Nature of Networks" which was published in English and Serbian by the lovely people of kuda.org, late last year. It is being distributed by Revolver, Archiv fuer aktuelle Kunst. Hard copies are available from the distributor (http://revolver-books.de/w3NoM.php?nodeId=675) and a pdf with the english portion of the book can be downloaded via my website (http://felix.openflows.org/pdf/Notebook_eng.pdf).

The Stuff of Culture

Today, we are confronted with a strange, hard-to-categorize question: what is culture made out of? Our answer, I am convinced, will have a profound impact not just on future culture, with a capital C, but on the entire the social reality of the emerging network societies. Today, culture, understood broadly as a system of meaning articulated through symbols, can no longer be separated from the (informational) economy, or, thanks to genetic engineering, from life itself.

Intimate Visual Co-Presence

Creating Drama Out of the Banalities of Everyday Life

"ABSTRACT: Photo sharing via handheld devices has unique limitations and affordances that differ from paper-based sharing and PC-based archive and moblog sites. Based on studies of camphone use in Japan, this paper suggests an emergent visual sharing modality that is uniquely suited to the handheld space. Intimate visual copresence involves the sharing of an ongoing stream of viewpointspecific photos with a handful of close friends or with an intimate other. The focus is on co-presence and viewpoint sharing rather than communication, publication, or archiving." Intimate Visual Co-Presence by Mizuko Ito.

Also of interest: Pervasive Image Capture and Sharing: New Social Practices and Implications for Technology; Turning from Image Sharing to Experience Sharing; Pervasive Imaging: a Capture and Access Perspective; and The Autobiographical Impulse and Mobile Imaging: Toward a Theory of Autobiometry.

Electro-Graf at Eyebeam

(0)



The Grafitti Research Lab, a division of the Eyebeam R&D; Open Lab, is demonstrating an early prototype Electro-Graf on the Eyebeam facade as part of its research and development in experimental creative technologies for grafitti writers. The prototype Electro-Graf consists of conductive and magnetic paint that electrically drive and mechanically control over 20 white and red LEDs. Viewers walking by on the street can interact with the piece by removing and repositioning the LEDs on the wall, creating their own patterns with color, location and luminocity. Come by Eyebeam to take part.
