Art in Motion

(0)


Brisbane, Australia-based media artist, Tim Plaisted has a exhibition of kinetic video objects called “New TV“. “Works such as TV Swing (2006), Public Opening (2006) and iPod Aviary (2006) were developed through an investigation into how intentional or unexpected movement to the video holding surface contribute to a rereading of moving images. Six new works span the gallery space and windows combining installation, software, projection and wearable technology.” Pretty nice collection of projects that all make some type of physical movement.

An ear that does not hear but transmits

(0)

Australian performance artist Stelarc is to present three of his latest works Partial Head, Walking Head & Extra Ear on Saturday 13 at Trondheim Matchmaking, a festival for electronic arts and new technology to be held next week in Norway.

The EXTRA EAR, a work developed in collaboration with the Tissue Culture & Art Project, has now been added on the artist's left arm. Excess skin was created with an implanted skin expander in the forearm. By injecting saline solution into a subcutaneous port, the silicon implant stretched the skin, forming a pocket of excess skin that was used in surgically constructing the ear.

When electronically complete the ear will form part of a distributed bluetooth headset, enabling Stelarc to speak to the remote person through the Extra Ear. I'll quote the artist's text as i'm not sure to understand what's going on here: "I will hear the sound of the person speaking to me in my mouth. If my mouth is closed only I will be able to hear them. If I open my mouth and someone is close by, they will hear the sound of the remote person from within my mouth."

Have a look at the festival's page to know more about the other projects, all of them aim to explore alternate anatomical architectures that incorporate physiologically plausible structures and re-wirings. They also postulate hybrids of biology and technology and actual-virtual chimeras. Operational and living systems as mixed and augmented realities.

Thanks to Ken Rinaldo for letting me know about the festival.

Video games form a central part of the cultural vernacular for the generation of artists and musicians who grew up in the pixelated world of the 1980s. The reinvention and reinterpretation of 80s gaming technology by this generation, over the past ten years, is the focus of 8 Bit, a new documentary by Marcin Ramocki premiering this weekend at New York's MoMA. Ramocki travelled to Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and Tokyo to capture the birth and growth of this wide-ranging DIY phenomenon, which began with the 1980s demo scene and continues on with chip-tune music, machinima, and modified computer games. Participants in the film include Christiane Paul, Alex Galloway, Tree Wave, Role Model, Cory Arcangel, BIT SHIFTER, Glomag, Ed Halter, Nullsleep, Mary Flanagan, TEAMTENDO, Carlo Zanni, John Kilma, Covox, and others, many of whom will be present at the October 7th screening. Practically all of the artists interviewed share a common fascination with the limitations imposed by outmoded technologies. The creation of a discernable aesthetic quality out of the boundaries of a medium squarely places this particular practice in the terrain of a continuing theme within art history. - Ceci Moss

Compiled! Jason Van Anden @ MonkeyTown Friday the Thriteenth

(0)

Jason Van Anden:

Hello Community!

I have been out of the loop for a while (been lurking though) - a quick shout out to let you know why. First off, I have a new improved website - same address but completely different look: www.smileproject.com. This is not my main reason for posting though ...

Not sure if you all have been following this thing I have been working on called IntelligentDesigner (ID) - I spoke about it at Dorkbot last May and promised I would do something with it in the fall, and I have! ID is a visual programming paradigm that I invented to enable my emotive robots (Neil and Iona) to interact improvisationally. This system evolved over time but only really made sense to me - until now. Over the summer I worked with eleven very different musicians selected by my friend Nat Hawks (half of the duo Christian Science Minotaur) to create eleven amazing living music compositions using ID. Following is the official announcement:

Global Anxiety Monitor

(0)

GlobalAnxietyMonitor.jpg

a foundation for multi-visual research

Global Anxiety Monitor and "Historiographic Tracer" represent an instance of research (in the general sense of collecting/analyzing data) and symbolic framing. They are "tactical media" by assuming the role of a "tool" for engaging/ studying a given situation as well as consciously politicizing the data and its means of collection (the tool itself).

These projects and much, if not all, of deGeuzen's work also builds on the practices and theories of people like Martha Rosler and Alan Sekula who practice a "critical documentary" in which the potential for affect provided by photography is neither abandoned nor surrendered to, but engaged to find instances where desires to change reality can be made politically reflexive. viaiDC list

THE ART OF SLEEP

(0)

Jemima Rellie:

A new net art commission by YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES launches at Tate Online on 6 October 2006 (www.tate.org.uk/netart). Called 'THE ART OF SLEEP', the work explores the international art market, while its launch coincides with the latest Frieze Art Fair in London. YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES are Young-Hae Chang, a Korean woman, and Marc Voge, an American man, who live and work in Seoul. Their work is Flash based and employs a mix of animated typography, jazzy music and humour.

The artists were also invited to participate in an interview about their practice to accompany the Tate commission. In place of the standard video interview now found at Tate Online, YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES chose to create a second Flash piece called 'THE ART OF SILENCE', 2006, based on a selection of the questions supplied.

An interpretive essay by Mark Tribe entitled 'An Ornithology of Net Art' accompanies the commission. Mark Tribe, an artist and curator, is Assistant Professor of Modern Culture and Media Studies at Brown University. He founded Rhizome.org, and is the author of ‘New Media Art’ (Taschen, 2006).
