:: DEADLINE: 15th of June, 2007

PARAFLOWS 07 - Annual Convention for Digital Arts and Cultures

The topic of the 2nd annual convention for digital arts and cultures in the city of Vienna is UN_SPACE.

"A body is defined by having length, width and depth." (Euclid)

This year's Paraflows exhibition, titled UN_SPACE, is going to focus on inaccessible, invisible, theoretical, and immaterial space per se.

Virtual spaces - a prominent issue in media and net art - as well as social and personal space dimensions and territories and real spaces like architectonic, geographic, or elementary, are to be compiled, visualised, and discussed according to their characteristics, their meaning, and their respective insufficiencies.

Surveillance Exhibitionism

(0)

Jill Magid's work makes surveillance intimate. First drawn to the subject not by political inclination but by a fascination with 'lipstick spy cams,' her projects have included penetrating several international police forces to engage officers in unusual forms of collaboration. In Amsterdam, she initiated the System Azure consulting firm, through which she was hired to encrust local cameras in color-coded rhinestones. In Liverpool, she seduced the cops into navigating and then documenting her actions in public space. Her most recent project, entitled Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy, after the police call-letters for L-O-V-E, was sparked when a subway cop declined her request that he search her. Once again turning the tables on the system in which she's intervening, the artist responded to the officer's rebuff (offered on account of her gender) with a request that he train her. The two went on to spend several late nights together, in and outside of the subway tunnels. Magid calls the officer 'my lighthouse underground, and she's documented their meetings in photos, a 64-page 'black book' novella, and in installations of accumulated ephemera. All of the material indexing these semi-private encounters is made public on Magid's project site, where she'll soon be uploading podcast narratives and dialogue from the book, narrated by herself and actor Ed Vas. The audio pieces 'will last about as long as a half hour subway ride.' - Marisa Olson

VIVOARTS, Art and Biology Workshop
HIBRID DNA ISOLATION: A Hobbyist Workshop and an Exploration of the Unnamable
Directed by Adam Zaretsky

Date: June 7, 8 pm
Location: Centre d'Art Santa Mònica
Rambla de Santa Mònica, 7
08002 Barcelona

Adam Zaretsky will guide this hands-on lab and discussion on extracting andisolating Hybrid DNA. Emphasis is given to the unknowable, personal naming of the unnamed and visible versus invisible enigma.
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is found in all living cells. These cells can be of plant, animal, fungus, bacterial protozoa and even viral particles. Many varieties of samples can be taken from various food, pets, pests, human bodies, laboratories and free or not so free living portions of the outdoors. Some recently alive 'materials' that you think might not have DNA are worth testing through extraction. Different cellular or multi-cellular organisms can be encouraged to grow by giving them food and an otherwise sterile and comfortable place to live.
Participants are requested to supply one or more samples of living, growing, raw or recently alive materials for Isolation and purification of an admixture of these samples. Everyone must bring a sample of DNA with them to put n the blender, animal, vegetable, human, animal, fungus, mold, bacteria, dirty underwear or whatever is alive or uncooked.

(in)visible sounds

(0)

Exhibition and Seminar
June 2 - July 14, 2007
Netherlands Media Art Institute



The artists in (in)visible sounds investigate the invisible world of sound waves and frequencies and electromagnetic fields. In all cases they touch on issues concerning the radiation that is ever-present, but imperceptible to our senses. They make use of technologies that are present around us, but invisible, and by playing with electromagnetic waves and different frequencies their works surprise us with an abundance of information and possibilities.

Artists: Erich Berger, David Haines & Joyce Hinterding, Usman Haque & Rob Davis, Informationlab (Ursula Lavrencic & Auke Touwslager), Olga Kisseleva, Brandon LaBelle & James Watts, Semiconductor, Theodore Watson

Seminar: June 02, 2007
Artists from the exhibition will present their work which focus on the influence of invisible technology on daily live.
The seminar will be streamed live on www.montevideo.nl

Exhibition in cooperation with the 5 days off festival.

Tune-In Italy (online or off)

(0)

Founded in 2004, RadioArteMobile is an online radio station and more. The Italian organization creates programming, on and off the internet, that explores the ever-evolving relationship between sound and visual art. These projects extend to exhibitions and public events, and RAM most recently helped found Rome's Sound Art Museum, which will appropriately be run by run by a visual artist, curator, and musicologist/composer. The institution was inaugurated with an exhibition called Inaudita, the title of which means unprecedented as well as unheard. Granted, the show presented artists fairly steeped in audio art practice (Vito Acconci, Markus Huemer, Donatella Landi, Stephen Vitiello, and Achim Wollscheid), but attempted to provide new context both for an Italian audience and with broader regard to the sound/image relationship. All of these shows and, of course, RAM's radio shows, are archived online and the group takes pride in the 'mobility' of their archives--making them more approachable to a diverse international audience. Remain dialed-in for further developments. - James Petrie

Micro Radio

(0)

microradio.jpgBy using records, cassettes, and a radio transmitter to perform live sound collages, Kristen Roos pays homage to the history of the phonograph, tape and radio as tools for the development of experimental sound art. His alternative use of commercial media is also a Situationist technique--detournement, in which a familiar medium is re-purposed to create something new.

The Micro Radio project started as a site-specific sound and radio project in 2005. It involved collecting site specific sounds, creating compositions, and broadcasting them back to the collection site. Roos stored the sounds on his laptop and broadcast using a low-power radio transmitter (capable of transmitting 150 feet).

In 2006, Roos began experimenting with a radio transmitter and antenna capable of broadcasting one kilometer. Audio can be downloaded from his broadcasts page.

The project has evolved into a mobile performance which mixes prerecorded field recordings stored on cassette, one off lacquer records, and Roos’s laptop. The performance is amplified through broadcasting to radios, and any existing sound system at the venue. He has also started live community radio station broadcasts, and is in the process of organizing a radio station tour in the fall. Download an essay on the micro radio project here.
