Urban Noise Pollution Displayed on Street Advertising Boards

Pink Noise by arts collective HeHe.org will be installed in Witte de Withstraat, Rotterdam on Sept. 10th, during the live event Hands On Hands Off organised by V2. Bruit rose (Pink noise in English): The interaction of this work is based on visualising the ambient sounds in the environment aswel as the passerby. The light emmitting panels, usually used to divulge numerically formatted information, are instead détourné from this didatic function and serve as an animated visual, disengaged from all the gloss that usually occupies this urban advertising space.

The Secret Lives of Lost Lighters

Have you ever wondered what happens to your cigarette lighter when you lend it to someone and don't get it back? Six Degrees of Smoking is a global artistic collaboration to delve into the secret lives of lost lighters. Lighters are handed out or posted to those who wish to be involved. The recipient then photographs themselves smoking a cigarette and submits it via MMS or email. He then passes the lighter on to a fellow smoker (either a friend or a stranger) and the process is repeated. Each lighter is numbered and so they can be tracked on their travels.

Catch My Drift

(0)

Brian Holmes is driven by his own brand of 'geophilosophical desire' for change, and on September 12, the renowned North American art critic, translator, and activist will begin channeling his ambition into an experimental seminar on 'Continental Drift.' The week-long series of discussions, to be held at New York's artist-run 16 Beaver and webcast online, seeks to chart the related processes of globalization and 'continentalization,' on several scales. On the macro level, Holmes will focus on the economics and politics of nascent blocs such as NAFTA and the EU. But he also hopes to shed light on the effects of these post-national powers on individual subjectivities. To this end, Holmes will address the role of art and activism in the effort to redraw regional maps, examining the various 'microcartographies of difference, dissent, deviance, and refusal' that have arisen in response to the consolidation of multi-states. Drawing on his own critical work and on the theories of Felix Guattari, Subcomandante Marcos, and many others, Holmes is sure to forge a new and urgently-needed continental philosophy for a swiftly networking planet. In keeping with 16 Beaver's stated goals, his seminar will represent a 'point of many departures.' Established and aspiring drifters are encouraged to participate in person or by logging on to relocate their own geopolitical aims. - Ramsey McGlazer

argos festival- Brussels

Argos festival 2005 13-22/10

Once again this edition of the argosfestival provides a free port for a wide range of audiovisual art forms, offering a broad domain in constant evolution, open to thematic, formal principles and technological variations and developments. The festival programme reflects this variability, going beyond the traditional delineations between disciplines and media, and offering a valuable perspective on numerous in-between spaces — in cinema, television, media art and visual art. Film, video, audio, installation and means of performance nestle together in a wide variety of both Belgian and international work. Historical and new work, the products of several generations and movements, all complement each other, creating breathing space for a multitude of trajectories. Beyond the origin, language and context in which they were realized, clear connections can be made in regards to form and content. The search for new narrative environments and relations between (the experience of) space and time; a resistance to conventional audiovisual forms and (mass) media and the immaterial stream of images that overrun us on both television and industrial cinema; a craving for adventure in expression and perception, learning how to see and hear (all over again): these are just some of the lines of flight which the programme traverses. Four themed programmes form the backbone of the festival. In the exhibition Multipistes Jean-Christophe Royoux focuses on a generation of young French artists who propose post-cinematographic forms, deconstructions or alterations of the familiar notions of projection and dentification. The works in the programme Black & White Outs, curated by Paul Willemsen, also question the basic conditions of cinema, by making radical choices for monochrome images and exploring the physiological relationship between hearing and seeing. Challenging and destabilizing the dominant position of the image constitutes a directional guideline in the film and video programme of ...

Scrapple

A Physical Score Table

Scrapple: A physical active score table, by Golan Levin, is a physical version of the screen-based Audiovisual Environments (AVES) devised for the Scribble performance in 2000.

In Scrapple, object placed on the table become sound-producing elements that determine the score's rhythm and pitch. They are interpreted as sound-producing marks in an active score: flexible shape-holding curves allow for the creation of melodies, a group of small toys and other moving objects yield ever-changing rhythms. Video projections on the table turn the installation into a simple augmented reality, in which the objects are elaborated through colorful and explanatory graphics.
