Rock GML

without comments

Next week I’ll run SPEED SHOW: GML, a show about the aweseome Graffiti Markup Language originally created by Evan Roth, Chris Sugrue, Jamie Wilkinson and Theo Watson. The show will feature all the different projects and tools around this open protocol. SPEED SHOW:GML is part of promising  backjumps – ‘Rock The Block’ two day street action in the heart of Berlin X-Berg!!! THX Adrian!!

Rock The Block – http://www.backjumps.info/facebook.com/event

 

On Tuesday the 2nd and Wednesday the 3rd of October 2012, the event ,“Rock The Block”, in the lively center of Kreuzberg, will change the colorful block of houses between Adalbertstr., Skaltizerstr., Mariannenstr., & Oranienstrasse into an impressive experience.

In cooperation with Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, dozens of Berlin artists will provide art venues, performances, workshops and parties, in and outside. The block will be opened to the public in cooperation with the residents and will come alive as a creative organism. An entire cosmos between four streets can be open for strolling. The event will be directed towards a wide audience. Within the framework of different workshops, children and the youth together can redesign billboards on the block. Whoever left too quickly or missed something in the turmoil of the night has two days to play in the cards. Performances and workshops will also keep the block in movement on the 3rd of October. As early as 12 o’clock, there will be the possibility to look at the complete works of art on the block.

INSERT DISC

without comments

We are very excited to present INSERT DISC. It was a great adventure to travel back in time to free sunken art treasures
guarded by Moore’s monster octopus on a sunken MacOS7.We hope you will enjoy this travel as we did! Get the DISC at MMI, NYC, any time, for FREE!

INSERT DISC
Selected CD-ROM art of the 90’s on DVD

September 22 – October 27, 2012
at DVD Dead Drop, Museum of Moving Image NYC

curated by Aram Bartholl & Robert Sakrowski (curatingyoutube.com)

The second DVD Dead Drop volume INSERT DISC, features several classic art CD-ROMs from the mid-90s on DVD. While the web was still in its infancy, artists from a wide range of fields explored the possibilities of interactivity and multimedia on CD-ROMs, fancy new silver discs that held an unbelievable 650 megabytes of data. Today most of these pre-web multimedia works are no longer accessible because they require legacy operating systems and software to run. INSERT DISC offers the full experience of a cutting edge, mid-90s operating system packed with stunning multimedia art. Each DVD comes with a safe-to-install virtualized Ubuntu Linux operating system running an emulated Mac OS 7.6. In addition to the historic CD-ROM art, special features include historic browsers, link lists, and more, guaranteeing a true 1995 computer experience!

“Offering a highly interactive interface to the collected sounds and images, this work is an exploration of the limits of what the CD-ROM medium can actually handle. Andy Cameron: “Antirom offers a radical critique of the poverty of contemporary multimedia in a number of savagely ironic, absurdist and incisive satires. Antirom is specifically against the ill conceived grafting of point-and-click functions onto traditional linear forms. Antirom is for the development of a new language of representation, and new modes of spectatorship, within the new apparatus of interactivity.” http://www.v2.nl/archive/works/antirom

Production: ZKM | Institute for Visual Media, 1994.

“A text, displayed in a linear way but made out of visual characters of tools, is activated by a mouse-click on an icon and plays back a four second video sequence with the actual use of the tool. The title refers to the iconography of each letter as well as to the origin of language in so far as it is related to manufactured objects, i.e. here a page ‹written› by hand and set in motion by the user’s hand.”

Cyberflesh Girlmonster
Linda Dement, CD-Rom 1995, http://www.lindadement.com/
Australian Network for Art and Technology, Australian Film Commission

“Donated body parts collected during Artists’ Week of the Adelaide Festival 1994 have been used to construct a computer based interactive work. About 30 women participated in the original event by scanning their chosen flesh and digitally recording a sentence or sound. Conglomerate bodies were created from the information donated. These have been animated and made interactive. When a viewer clicks on one of these monsters, the words attached to that body part could be heard or seen, another monster may appear, a digital video could play, a story or medical information about the physical state described by the story, may be displayed. The user moves relatively blindly between these. There is no menu system or clear controllable interface. The work is a macabre, comic representation of monstrous femininity from a feminist perspective that encompasses revenge, desire and violence.[...]” http://www.v2.nl/archive/works/cyberflesh-girlmonster  http://www.newmediacaucus.org/html/journal/issues/html_only/2006_spring/Sp06_Davis.htm

Audience engagement is a vital element in our interactive artworks. We sometimes think of our work as performance art, were the artist is not physically present; the actions of the performer are programmed into the work, with the viewers’ response completing the piece. We have closely observed how viewers interact with our work, and have drawn on these observations in the creation of each subsequent piece.
