¿blog? art project - call for submissions

(0)

Lea:
¿Blog?

Blog, one of the most spread forms of expression on the web, varying
from personal diaries to community weblogs, professional knowledge exchange resources, political campaigns and more. In their different
manifestations, blogs (moblogs, videoblogs, photoblogs, etc.), became a phenomenon influencing in many cases upon social and cultural areas: journalism, politics, alternative knowledge sources, literature, art, etc.

The ¿blog? project takes blog as art and as a stage for net artworks
investigating the language, the aesthetics, the impacts and the practices of blogs, blogging and the blogoesphere.
In this context, it's worth mentioning the blog.art project --one of
the first projects dealing with the notion of blog as art -- operating for about a year and publishing blog-defined art projects.

¿Blog? project acts (is envisioned to act) as a platform for an open
discussion on the topic and as a pool for submitting works.
No-org.net invites submissions of art projects making use of blog as a tool, subject, or both as well as texts investigating the blog-art interplay in a broad sense.

Selected texts and artworks will be exhibited (separately) on the
no-org.net website. The launch of the project will be accompanied by an
opening event and the discussion, that will get documented on the
no-org.net website.

Asterisk*: Artists Residencies

(0)

The Centre for the Study and Development of Narrative

Asterisk*, (the centre for the study and development of narrative) is based at Shandy Hall in North Yorkshire where Laurence Sterne wrote The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. It is a concept developed by The Laurence Sterne Trust that aims to use the spirit and intellectual resources of Shandy Hall to inspire artists and the public to explore and experiment with nonlinearity, and to examine and develop the convergences between art forms within our contemporary culture. It aims also to illustrate how new technology can, in the hands of artists, be used to deliver entirely new artistic opportunities. In the autumn and winter of 2005, Asterisk* will offer two residencies of three weeks duration each. These will provide exceptional opportunities for artists keen to experiment with current practice in diverse media, specifically exercises in non-linearity, with an emphasis on interactivity and audience participation. Intersections with technology are encouraged and technology specialists will be available for collaboration. Deadline Friday 26 August.

CRYSTALPUNK WORKSHOP for SOFT ARCHITECTURE

(0)



The Crystalpunk Workshop of Soft Architecture workshop lives in 2 distinct spheres: in the corner of a gigantic building in a tiny Dutch city and online where as much realtime roomness is broadcasted as possible. Participation is local, you are invited to bring your laptop and start making noise, to join a workshop or to come listen to a presentation. To those faraway we must mention that, apart from this workshop, there are very few reasons for visiting Utrecht and the more we admire you for doing so. From the deepest Africa you are encouraged to turn yourself into a soft architectonic bootlegger: to render on-line data into representations formal and fluid, in monotones or RGB, spatially exact or rolling like a wave.

Synthesizer Pioneer Bob Moog Dies

(0)

Sigalarm writes "CNN is reporting that Synthesizer pioneer and all around vanguard of electronic music, Bob Moog, has passed away at age 71. Dr Moog built his first electronic instrument - a theremin - aged 14 and made the MiniMoog, "the first compact, easy-to-use synthesizer", in 1964. He was the first to bring the electronic synthesizer within reach of most musicians, and his early work, the "Minimoog" is still highly praised, and often emulated, to this day."
