Turbulence Commissions: “WWW-Enabled Noise Toy” and “Moments of Inertia”

June 7, 2010

Turbulence is pleased to announce two new commissions: “WWW-Enabled Noise Toy” by Loud Objects and “Moments of Inertia” by R. Luke DuBois, with Todd Reynolds.

“WWW-Enabled Noise Toy” by Loud Objects

http://turbulence.org/works/noisetoy

Loud Objects, NYC-based circuit sorcerers, present a wacky way to learn hardware audio programming. The “WWW-Enabled Noise Toy” invites anyone with a web browser to write their own audio code, program it remotely onto a Noise Toy, and play it live via webcam. In the spirit of “try it yourself” software demos, the website provides a simple environment for experimenting with low-level microchip-generated audio. Load code from Loud Objects’ own library of performance algorithms, hone your own noise techniques, and add your work to the online archive to share it with other microchip coders and create an open source noise community.

Turbulence Commission: “I’m Not Stalking You; I’m Socializing: Black & White” by Liz Filardi

March 8, 2010

Turbulence Commission: “I’m Not Stalking You; I’m Socializing: Black & White” by Liz Filardi

http://turbulence.org/works/stalkingsocial/blacknwhite

One of the original cases of criminal stalking in America is retold within the framework of a social network called “Black & White”, which consists of two mirrored profiles, those of Laura Black and Richard Farley. The website extrapolates on the tongue-and-cheek usage of the term “stalking” to describe the accepted social protocol, a far cry from the original behavior that, in this case, lead to a massacre at a booming Silicon Valley company in 1988. This project points to new and different levels of trust, privacy and social order in our networked society, tells the story behind the first Anti-Stalking Law passed in California in 1991 in the language and structure of networks, and tragically binds together two tormented Americans, once at opposite ends of an ineffective restraining order.

BIOGRAPHY
Liz Filardi received an MFA in Design and Technology from The New School, where she also worked as teaching assistant to Ken Wark and Orit Halpern. In 2008, she was nominated for the William Randolph Hearst Scholarship for “Truth Recruit”, a performance in which she visited a Bronx high school dressed as a military recruiter. Her performance video, “Viral Conversations” is currently on display with Iraqi Memorial at Sheppard Gallery in Reno, Nevada. Based in New York, Liz is a production manager and web designer at Kickstand Animation, Research and Design and has interned at Rhizome, Eyebeam and Rocketboom.
