Announcing Joyce Walks a new project by Conor McGarrigle


ANNOUNCING

Joyce Walks a new project by Conor McGarrigle

Because somewhere, sometimes it's always Bloomsday.

http://www.stunned.org/walks

Every June 16th in Dublin Joyce enthusiasts celebrate Bloomsday with
re-enactments of events from Ulysses. Unfortunately not everyone can be
in Dublin for that day but why should that stop you celebrating
Bloomsday where you want when you want .So as Bloomsday approaches we
announce Joyce Walks a web 2.0 service which will let you map routes
from Ulysses to any city in the world so that Bloomsday can be
celebrated in any place at any time.

Joyce Walks is a psychogeographical tool which generates walking maps
based on routes from James Joyce's Ulysses in any city in the world
using Google Maps. The system prints maps to be used as the basis of
walks exploring the city of your choice and generates mashups using
your pictures and videos documenting these walks to share with other users.

Inspired by the Situationist idea of the Derive Joyce Walks seeks to
provide the walker a means of exploring the urban environment which is
unique, truly random but removed from a reliance on chance. Although
based on a fixed route each map generated is unique as it is based on an
individual selection by the user of the center point of their chosen
city thus every map provides the walker a means of exploring the urban
environment which although based on routes which are predetermined
according to a strict adherence to a text is individual to them. Of
course removing these routes from Dublin removes specific spatial
relevance but they still retain an aura of association which creates a
link between the locations and Joycean Dublin.

Joyce Walks saves every map generated to a database. These walks, in
addition to being specific to their creator, form part of a continuum
where each specific walk performed by any user of the system is added to
an searchable archive of unique performative walks from around the
world. This archive over time will become a tool to explore and view
many unique walks in many cities around the world creating a veritable
web 2.0 psychogeographical rough guide.

Requirements:
Firefox or Safari browser , in this beta version Internet Explorer is
not supported, support for IE will be added shortly
Due to copyright issues between Google and the British Ordnance Survey
cities in the UK and Northern Ireland are not searchable, we are
working to find a solution for this.

Announcing the 2006 Net Art Open


Deadline:
Sun Jul 02, 2006 17:56

Announcing the 2006 Net Art Open

http://www.netartopen.org

Stunned is proud to announce the opening of the 2006 Net Art Open.

Now in it's fourth edition the Net Art Open takes a different approach
to the curation of Net Art online. Rather then present a single event
based exhibition selected by a curator or panel of selectors the Net Art
Open is an ongoing blog based process which will unfold over the next
six months. Curatorial bias has been removed by accepting all work which
meets the criteria. The result is a true reflection of the state of Net
Art now.

The emphasis in this edition will be bringing the exhibition to the
audience, taking account of the changing way people access the net. With
so much new work being produced all the time even with the best will in
the world it's difficult to keep up so the Net Art Open will be blogged
one work at a time with RSS feeds for newsfeed readers and blog
aggregators, each entry will be tagged for technorati and del.icio.us
and a flickr pool will be created. In addition each entry will feature
on the front page of Stunned.org.

The net art open was started in 2002 by Conor McGarrigle and Arthur X.
Doyle as part of the Irish Museum of Modern Art.com intervention,
subsequent editions were in 2003 and 2004-5.

Google Bono


Stunned is pleased to announce the Bono Probability Positioning System
version 2 : Google Bono

We know that for a visitor to Dublin an important attraction is the
possibility that they may see U2 frontman and international celebrity Bono.

The Bono Probability Positioning System version 2 : Google Bono (beta)
is a mashup utilising Dublin's extensive surveillance camera network in
conjunction with facial recognition software, Google Maps and advanced
probabilty techniques to allow visitors to determine the probability of
seeing Bono in any of the most probable locations in Dublin's city
centre in real time.

inviting a number of guests to, yes, curate a personal selection from
the exhibition and we will be investigating a gallery version of the Open.
