Prototyping the perimeters

(0)

Artists, architects, designers, and other practitioners are constantly fashioning new forms and challenging disciplinary boundaries as they employ techniques such as rapid prototyping and generative processes. In the exhibition 'Perimeters, Boundaries, and Borders,' at Lancaster, UK's Citylab, organizers Fast-uk and Folly explore the range of objects, buildings, and products being conceptualized with the aid of digital technologies. Aoife Ludlow's 'Remember to Forget?' is a series of jewelry designs that envisioned accessories incorporating RFID tags that allow the wearer to record information and emotions associated with those special items that we put on daily. Tavs Jorgensen uses a data glove in his 'Motion in Form' project. After gesturing around an object, data collected by the glove is given physical shape using CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling, creating representations of the movements in materials such as glass or ceramics. Addressing traces of a different sort is Cylcone.soc, a data mapping piece by Gavin Bailey and Tom Corby. These works and many more examples from the frontiers of art and design are on view until October 21st. - Michelle Kasprzak

Leanardo Electronic Almanac Special Issue on Digital Poetry

(0)

LEA just released an extensive new issue on Digital Poetry. While I’ve just taken a quick look, it appears to be a terrific collection of essays on contemporary digital poetry, in addition to featuring several compelling works in the gallery. The issue edited by Tim Peterson includes essays by Loss Pequeo Glazier, John Cayley with Dimitri Lemmerman, Lori Emerson, Phillippe Bootz, Manuel Portela, Stephanie Strickland, Mez, Maria Engberg, and Matthias Hilner, in addition to works in the gallery by Jason Nelson, Aya Karpinska and Daniel Howe, mEIKAL aND and CamillE BacoS, and Nadine Hilbert and Gast Bouschet. The correlation between the essayists, authors and works reviewed in this issue of LEA and the contributors to the forthcoming Electronic Literature Collection, Volume One suggests to me that the two free publications will make a great pair for teaching. All of the essays in this edition of LEA are available both in HTML and downloadable PDFs.

Nick Ackerman + Michael Bell-Smith

Our reception is this Saturday, Sept 23rd, 6pm-9pm.

And we’ll be having artist talks at 6pm with Michael Bell-Smith and also Dirk Paesmans of the influential deconstructive Internet/video game art collective, JODI!!

JODI is a pioneer of Internet art who created net-art that questioned the nature of the Internet and browser before most people were familiar the Internet. More recently they have been working with hacks, exploits, and glitches in modern first-person-shooter video games. This is a preview of a talk that Dirk will be giving in a few weeks at the MOMA, so don’t miss it.

Michael Bell-Smith is a New York-based video artist who appropriates or emulates video and images from video games and television, tears them apart, and reconstructs them into seamless video loops that are isolated from the original content. Read his recent review in the New York Times.
