BIO
Ursula Endlicher's work resides on the intersection of Internet, performance and multi-media installation. Since the mid 1990ies her practice has been bridging the gap between the World Wide Web and physical reality. She translates the social and structural components of the Web into choreography for performances, into installations, and objects. She just recently showed her new online data performance called "Light and Dark Networks" (2012), commissioned by The Whitney Museum for Artport, on Whitney.org. She has exhibited and performed her work internationally in venues such as ZERO1 Biennial in San Jose, the transmediale festival in Berlin; SIGGRAPH Asia, Japan; Jersey City Museum, NJ; Postmasters Gallery, New York; the Center for Performance Research, Brooklyn; and at the Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, Poland. Her net-art work has been commissioned by Turbulence, and by the Whitney Museum for artport; her Internet/theater work has been presented by the "Theater am Neumarkt" in Z├╝rich, Switzerland. She participated in the Virtual Residency 2.0 at Location One, and was invited to several international Festivals on networked culture and performance. She recently gave a "Lightning Talk" at the LISA Conference at the Guggenheim Museum, NY. Her work is part of the ursula blickle's videoarchiv at the Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna, Austria, and the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art at Cornell University.

FAR-FLUNG FOLLOWS FUNCTION


Dates:
Thu Oct 10, 2013 20:00 - Sat Oct 12, 2013

Location:
UC Irvine, California
United States of America

Far-Flung follows function

by URSULA ENDLICHER
with Antoinette LaFarge and Robert Allen

Far-Flung follows function is an original performance work that turns a physical space into a crashing computer whose population of finders, daemons, mice, and the like struggle to avert catastrophe. The environment in which they carry out their labors is ruled by shifting weather and time of day data from live internet feeds. Thirty cities around the world take turns choreographing the lights, projections, sound, and performers themselves. As the piece unfolds, typical computer user actions such as mouse management are transformed into playful and sometimes absurd movements, triggering cascades of accidents, errors, and crossed signals. Welcome to the commedia of the motherboard.

Facebook User Labor Enactments
The code = The choreography

image

Facebook User Labor Enactments is a new live performance by Ursula Endlicher, which uses ULML code (=User Labor Mark-up Language) as choreography. In the performance on November 13, five performers and the audience will together shape the course of the show.

Using Burak Arikan's newly developed ULML-based software application which collects user activity on Facebook, the performance will combine this online information as well as audience submitted ideas right on stage. The public is invited to add movement directions to a database which will be used by the dancers during the show. The audience can also try out their own movements of the ULML language!

Facebook User Labor Enactments is a collaborative event breaking down boundaries between user and consumer, performer and audience, and is driven by a continuous exchange between Web and body.

Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #2 - www.google.com


Dates:
Sat Oct 03, 2009 00:00 - Fri Oct 02, 2009

Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #2 - www .google .com
The Code=The Choreography

image

Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited is a ten-part live performance series, which utilizes Web code as choreography. In the performance of google.com on October 3, 2009, three dancers, two performers, the audience, and the artist will shape together the course of the show.

The source code of the website - its HTML tags - is interpreted live on stage into new dance movements, which are immediately translated into text-based descriptions and then stored online in the html-movement-library. This information is reused on stage as new instruction material, and then recycled yet anew...

As the data performance progresses, more html-movements are developed, stored and altered by all the participants. The user (=the audience) takes an active role in the performance of google.com.

A new part of the performance/installation series by Ursula Endlicher.

The Code=The Choreography

image

Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited is a ten-part live performance series, which utilizes Web code as choreography. In the performance of wikipedia on December 11 five dancers, the audience, and the artist will shape together the course of the performance.

The source code of the website - its HTML tags - are interpreted live on stage into new dance movements, which are immediately translated into text-based descriptions and then stored online into the html-movement-library. This information is reused on stage as new instruction material. As the data performance progresses, more html-movements are developed, stored and altered by the participants.

The inclusion of the html-movement-library on stage enables a simultaneous exchange of instruction and performance, data and movement input and output equally, and a continuous transfer between Web and body.
