Fibonacci Series with Calculators - 1994

(0)


The piece is a system or a procedure or a set of instructions. The instructions are to draw a spiral on a board. Using four cheap calculators, create the Fibonacci series. Write the numbers on the spiral as you go along. When the calculators can no longer calculate the numbers the piece is finished. It's a closed system that is somewhat like the logical abstraction for a computer program, a set of instructions that is executed.

An Art Lab Grows in Spain

(0)

On April 2nd, Spain will witness the inauguration of LABoral, a new exhibition center devoted to the intersection between art, science, technology, and creative industries. Based in Gijon, this venue will pay special attention to new media's history and current production, as demonstrated by its opening program, which includes five shows and one symposium. One of the highlights is 'Feedback,' an exhibition curated by Christiane Paul, Jemima Rellie, and Charlie Gere and focused on artistic practice reactive to instructions. Bringing together historical and contemporary works based on systems of response, this project proposes an innovative genealogy of new media activity. Also worth mentioning is Carl Goodman's show, 'Gameworld,' that features works referring to the designed world within a video game. This project thus examines a pertinent contemporary topic: the extent to which current lived experience is being informed by machine-mediated interactions. In order to mark the institution's commitment to theory and provide an intellectual framework to the opening program, Jose Luis Brea organized 'The E-Image Era,' in which artists and scholars discuss the rise of an electronic zeitgeist in Western societies. LABoral, as its name suggests, promises to be a laboratory in which creative ideas, experiments and practices will grow. - Miguel Amado

Turbulence Commission: "Urban Attractors, Private Distractors" by Angie Eng

Turbulence.org:

March 31, 2007 Turbulence Commission: "Urban Attractors, Private Distractors" by Angie Eng in collaboration with Rich Streitmatter-Tran and a collective of student interns in New York and Ho Chi Minh City http://turbulence.org/uapd/

"Urban Attractors and Private Distractors" is a vlog project about privacy in public space in Eastern culture. It compares the results of dérives (French for "drift," dérive was defined by the Situationists as the "technique of locomotion without a goal") in Ho Chi Minh and New York City. The collective will address questions such as: How is a city constructed in a culture where the inhabitants have little experience of a private physical space? Do they adapt more readily to cyberspace which is both private/public simultaneously? How do Westerners reclaim their 'public space'? Organized dérives in both cities will commence at the most public of spaces--the town square. Participants will submit videos as urban indicators of private and/or public to the vlog until the workshop meetings in June 2007. Angie Eng, the project director, will continue vlogging until the commencement of the physical installation in Fall 2007.

"Urban Attractors, Private Distractors" is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.
