Group Show, Museum of Communication, Kopenhagen

Communication pervades our lives more than ever before. With the digital channels, we are constantly accessible and can publish ourselves wherever and whenever we want. But despite the many great opportunities, the tide of information may often appear confusing, polarizing or hateful, and our public conversation is challenged.

On November 19, 2022, ENIGMA will open new exhibition areas and a large children’s area, in which we look forward to welcoming everyone.

Tilt Shift – Darmstädter Tage der Fotografie

Group Show, Darmstädter Tage der Fotografie, Darmstadt

Tilt/Shift – Experiment as Normality
Even in our society’s fields of activity we previously believed to be safe, the contemporary crises prevalent worldwide are revealing to us a long-inconceivable collapse. Although no claim can be laid on a normal state of the world, the feeling of security is dwindling for an ever-growing number of people: habitual viewpoints are breaking away, certainties are shifting. The promise that all will remain well, or that things will be all right again, is currently unravelling and is almost impossible to carry into tomorrow from today. Even people who, thus far, imagined themselves to be safe in their habitat are noticing that their everyday life is under ever-more frequent threat. Thought patterns are being queried and discussed – constructively by groups and individuals, but also in a polarising way by fact-twisters. Old discourses on euro-centrically and post-colonially influenced views of the world – in macro and in micro – are being sustained and propagated. Times of crisis not only signify uncertainty, but are also able – despite it all – to highlight opportunities. Partly out of necessity, potentials are examined at all levels for open spaces, new phenomena and further developments. Will the experiment of constantly having to refocus become the normal state now? How can photography capture the enormous changes? What images allow us to better understand an uncertain, diverse world subject to turbulent and complex transformation – and to keep an eye on the experiment’s open outcome?

Text To Speech

June 30, 2008

Good friend Christoph Meierhans shows a piece called: “Remarks by Bill Gates, Chairman, Microsoft Corporation, and Bill Clinton, Former President of the United States. Microsoft Government Leaders Forum Africa 2006 Cape Town, South Africa July 11, 2006″ at UPDATE II, biennal for digital art Gent, Belgium.

Wow, what a long title. But probably just the name of the file he is ripping with this nice installation. If you are around Brussels just take a look at this by machines reenacted conference before the exhibititon is closing.

UPDATE II, biennal for digital art
kunstenplatform zebrastraat
zebrastraat 32/001, 9000 Gent, Belgium

exhibition: 20/04/2008 until 06/07/2008
opening hours: wed-sun 14:00-18:00

“Remarks by…” is a re-enactment by computers of a conference on the evolution of computer technology and itʼs assumed benefits for the african continent. Originally taking place in Cape Town, south Africa, on July 11 2006, the conference features Mr. Bill Gates, Mr. Bill Clinton, Mr. Cheik Diarra, Chairman of Microsoft Africa and moderator of the talk, Ms. the Minister of Education of South Africa, a minister from Kenya, as well as three audience members asking questions.
The installation includes eight computers of different brands, generations and types, all comfortably placed on the chairs of a conference room. Each computer plays the role of one of the lecturers or audience members, speaking their respective lines with their generic synthetic voice. The words are heard through the integrated loudspeakers of the computers.
As a computer talks, itʼs screen flashes according to the rhythm of the voice, from black to white, respectively from white to black, depending on the skin color of the person speaking.
Throughout the 80 minutes loop of the re-enacted conference, the visitors may enter the conference room and take place on one of the free seats in order to listen to the speakers, next to the computers playing the roles of their fellow audience members.
As is usual in long lectures, some listeners ocasionally get sleepy. When computers get sleepy, their screensaver turns on. When this occurs for a longer period of time, soft snoring sounds might be heard.

“Species of Spaces”

June 30, 2008

Among a couple of openings on busy Brunnenstrasse Berlin I liked the show “Species of Spaces” at Pitrowski gallery last friday. Kym Ward among six Chelsea Art College graduates acted as a/is the curator observing the show on a set of surveillance screens. Nice performance!

In the first moment I had to think of the art robbery which happend at ATM gallery lately. Pure Evil got his piece “You can’t buy happiness-steal it” stolen during the opening. For that reason surveillance cams and an observer panel in the gallery window would make perfect sense!

Thx to Jerry for pointing out the event! (Berlin has just Olaf’s factory but doesn’t show his art.)

Gun Camera

June 27, 2008

The Image Fulgurator by Julius von Bismarck I recently posted about made it through the whole blogosphere: from Make ( thx Jonah!) , to BoingBoing and finally to Wired. No doubt, the project is just brilliant ( a milestone in my opinion). Charlie Sorrel from wired explains the piece very detailed and brings in some context in his article. For example the ” Enjalbert Photo Revolver de Poche, a French gun-cam from 1883…” (on the left) and other camera gun projects. Nice article!

DIY Shin Guards

June 27, 2008

As you might know Germany is quite crazy about soccer right now. On Sunday there will be the European championship final game Germany-Spain.
Of course the neighbour kids are playing soccer in the backyard all day long. One of them created these beautiful pair of bark shin guards. Nice!

“Short Moments of Inner Calmness”

June 26, 2008

I recently dropped in at Gitte Weise gallery
on Tucholskystrasse Berlin and saw the current solo show of Ingo Gerken (who is also running “West Germany” among others). I like his very simple and clever way of day to day life like comments in his photograph series and installations a lot.

Some more pictures and text on the gallery website.

SP38 turns Auguststr. Berlin inside out, into a gallery. Good proportions and nice rhythm. 😉

Traffic Light Jammer

June 25, 2008

This traffic light on Invalidenstrasse Berlin takes ages before it switches to green for pedestrians. Additionally it has an antenna sensing the aproaching tramway. In that case it takes even longer before you may cross the street. I want a jammer for that signal! Hmm…what frequency this tramway antenna might run on?

Ah, let’s get this going…

(Yeh, I know. Just we germans would wait for a green light.)
