Mind in Matter: Constructions of the Built Environment

(0)

griddy.gifJoshua Ippel:
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Beneath our feet and above our heads, sidewalks, lawns, plazas, blocks, gardens, buildings, streets, and curbs surround and bound the spaces in which we move and live. Much more than a lifeless negative space, these elements of the built environment provide us with symbols through which we construct our understanding of the world, deriving stories about our past, present and future.

The tension between these “intended

Need I say more? ReBlogged from DeadPr0grammer's Café:

Came by this beauty of a BSOD today. It's not like it's a rarity to see one on this type of a display, but still.

There are whole galleries of this stuff, and, you know, if I were a person developing MS-powered billboards, I would change the color of BSOD text/background to black to spare Microsoft public embracement.

art journalist, curator and critic. I live and work in Milan, Italy and I
would like to introduce you the cultural and editorial project DIGICULT

italian
network of almost 30 people and 10 huge italian communities and projects
collaborating to the magazine and the portal at large; some the best italian
journalists, curators, critics and professionists of the growing and
spreading new media culture in Italy. We would like to be the first
cultural-editorial activist network project in Italy, completely
indipendent, no dipending from any owner, writing and speaking and
discussing and reflecting freely about everything we consider important
today in the world of electronic culture and arts. From September you can
browse DIGICULT also in english at http://www.digicult.it/index_eng.htm

Artivistic is a transdisciplinary event on the interPlay between art, information and activism. The bilingual event will bring together diverse practitioners and theorists of activist art and communication through performances, art exhibitions, interventions, workshops and roundtables.

The event includes a *benefit* for Steve Kurtz (Critical Art Ensemble) and Robert Ferrell on the evening of the 22nd September, towards the CAE Legal Defense Fund. The artistic and free-form conference asks three overlapping questions in order to consider new + different possibilities: * Why is Activism Associated with the Street? A question here on the notion of space and the politics that underlies it; * Who Owns your Body_Mind? A question for analysing the authority of scientific knowledge in relation to society; * Who is Allowed to Communicate? A question on communications and media, information as a right and vector of freedom.

Even things we’d likely to perceive as nature, like the trees on the street, are carefully planned and managed and no longer nature. However, the wind blowing through its leaves is. Like footsteps in the sand or ripples on the water, there are still a few natural elements left in the urban environment.

Tree, by Simon Heijdens, is projected onto several facades in the city, including dark corners and alleys. The main location has a 3x8 meter drawing of a tree projected onto the facade of a building. The branches and leaves move slightly, with an intensity that depends on actual wind gusts.

Its leaves are sensitive to sound. For example, a shouting passer-by or car horn, will make a leaf break off the branch. When it falls off the tree, the leaf falls down in another part of the city, projected onto the pavement. Depending on the human traf
