I am attending this interesting conference right now:

re:place 2007

The Second International Conference on the Histories of Media, Art,
Science and Technology

Location: Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin
Date: 15-18 November 2007


An interdisciplinary forum of over 70 researchers and artists from all over the world, re:place 2007 presents multiple historical relations between art, science and technology. The title ‘re:place’ refers to the sites and the migration of artistic and knowledge production. This theme is highlighted during the panel discussions and poster sessions, particularly in the ‘Place Studies’ stream which looks at specific historical instances and settings. Special attention will be given to alternatives to the ‘Western’ historical paradigms through presentations about art-science relations in the former Soviet Union, Africa, and Latin America. The conference includes general forum discussions on interdisciplinary research strategies, as well as keynote lectures by Lorraine Daston and Siegfried Zielinski.

replace 2007 is a project of Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH in cooperation with Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin. Funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds, Berlin. Conference partners include Leonardo, Database of Virtual Art at Danube University Krems’ Center for Image Science, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research, Helmholtz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik at Humboldt Universität Berlin, and others. Supported by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, Canadian Embassy, the Embassy of the USA, Tschechisches Zentrum Berlin – CzechPoint and Schwedische Botschaft Berlin.

New Project: "Are you social?" – T-shirt

with 2 comments

The “Are you social?“-T-shirt is a co-production of Kosmar and myself. This piece has been shown for the first time at 2nd City Ars Electronica 07. More pictures and the complete project description can be found here.

I met Kosmar the first time at the plazes party in May2007 where I was performing the “Speech Bubble” project. Since then I kept following him on all kinds of social web platforms, especially twitter. I really learned a lot about social software and it is very interesting to keep up with this still vastly growing development on the web. Kosmar designed hundreds of social web micro buttons which everybody may use on his blog. I had the idea to design a T-shirt with these icons.
