Turbulence Spotlight: “30 Days of New Life” by Douglas Gast

Turbulence Spotlight: “30 Days of New Life” by Douglas Gast
http://turbulence.org/spotlight/30DaysofNewLife

“30 Days of New Life” comprises a series of performances in which a team of cartographers relocates to a new city for 30 days. The first performance took place in 2008 in Berlin, Germany; the second will occur in summer 2009. During the performances, the cartographers work with local residents to identify places and people that are personally, artistically, historically or culturally significant. Essentially, the performances result in an online interactive map. The map is created using Google Maps and the project’s website. Each point of interest includes a description, information gathered from local residents/sources, reflections, images, and/or video.

The cartographers do not control what gets included in the map. Local residents make suggestions and it is their suggestions that ultimately build
it.

BIOGRAPHY

Douglas Gast is an exhibiting artist and educator. While typically digital or electronic in nature, his work involves the identification and activation of the inherent elements of the media which stands to best serve his chosen message. The role of his art is twofold: It strives to clarify the very definition of art while concurrently utilizing the fundamental properties of the media to construct idea systems. These idea systems are designed to be thought through, instead of thought of, and ultimately call into question some typical socio-political situation or structure.

Gast’s projects take the form of videos, films, images, websites, sculptures, performances, books and installations. They have been exhibited and screened nationally and internationally in places like Chicago, Seattle, Cincinnati, Nashville, Austin, Madison and NYC as well as Germany, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden and Canada. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Washington State University where he teaches in support of the Digital Technology and Culture program.

MEDIATOPIA/ISEA SINGAPORE 2008: Call for Participation

Submit any media files, playlists, links,node coordinates, live webcasts or URLs.
Please read criteria for Border Transmissions at ISEA 2008 Singapore for related context.
Your media can be uploaded or linked into the Mediatopia database and be included in the participatory sequence produced onsite at the National Gallery of Singapore and viewable / re mixable / mash-up-able on the net via live webcast.

For more information on this project, to submit images and to view the live broadcast visit the project site at: www.mediatopia.org.

Project Details:

The Mediatopia Project and related events will reflect upon the ISEA 2008 Border Transmissions Theme and will exploit the potential of networks, communication tools, alternate economies and experiential technologies as a collaborative engine to enable the emergence of a different conception of borders, and of the transmissions that problematize these demarcations.

It also seeks to expand the models of production and distribution that have arisen as social networks, hardware, generative software components, small-scale download practices and peer-to-peer protocols have changed the nature of not only how material is made but distributed. Mediatopia will act as an incubator and working model for experimentation, inquiry, and cross-cultural collaboration within the framework of these overarching themes.

Mediatopia seeks to expand upon the concepts of production and distribution as participants contribute discrete media from a variety of readily available sources, recognizing advances in technology, software and social networking strategies that have arisen in recent years. The Mediatopia project will be able to function as an international mashup/remix of broadcast media and simultaneously as a database and interface of freely accessible sound/video materials that transcends time, location, cultural and geographical borders without emphasis on market driven outcome.

The Mediatopia Project and scheduled events at ISEA 2008 will function as the primary event host while numerous satellite nodes worldwide will serve to further expand and engage the participating individuals in creative collaborations and cross cultural exchanges. The Mediatopia Project and related international events will be accessible online and live throughout ISEA Singapore 2008 and culminate in a 24 hour live remix in the Gallery Theatre at the National Museum of Singapore. To view, participate and/or contribute to the project or to see a complete list of participating artists and scheduled events both onsite and at remote nodes, please visit the project website at: http://www.mediatopia.org

CARAVANSARAI’S NEW EVENT EXPLORES INTERNATIONAL FOOD THROUGH LIVE COOKING EVENTS

Istanbul’s new art venue located in Beyoglu, combines art, technology and food

With the ‘Virtual Chef- Iran’ experience

Virtual Chef – Iran

The Virtual Chef project explores, through food, the international and diverse aspects of Istanbul. Here in the city Julie Upmeyer finds the ingredients for a meal, planned by Ashkan Sepahvand in Iran (Berlin). Her adventures and findings are posted on the Caravansarai website. On the night of the dinner, we receive real-time instructions on how to cook our meal. The entire process will be viewable in real time on CITV. It will also be available afterwards in the archive.

Along with Virtual Chef, a unique international photography project – Never Been to Tehran – can also be seen in Caravansarai.

Never Been to Tehran

Imagine a city that you’ve only seen in reproductions or perhaps have merely heard about. A place, like many others, that only exists for you through indirect sources—the nightly news, hearsay, literature, magazines, movies, and the Internet. Using these secondhand clues as firsthand research materials, invited worldwide participants—who have Never Been to Tehran—will take photographs (from their home base) of what they imagine Tehran to look like. This worldwide exhibition includes 29 international participants who will be contributing photographs, streamed to Caravansarai as a continuously evolving slideshow.

http://www.neverbeentotehran.com

The program is as follows:

Friday November 30th, 2007

• Virtual Chef – Iran : a meal

• Never Been to Tehran: a photography project

19:00 – exhibition viewing

20:00 – cooking – live with Ashkan Sepahvand

21:00 – eating

(+3 GMT)

NEW Project Kunstmuseum Ahlen

Monday 12 Novembre à 20h 8 PM GMT+1 (Paris local time)
Breaking Solitude in the salon web of panoplie.org
presents “imaginary friend – amie imaginaire”
a performance by Aya Karpinska.
http://panoplie.emakimono.org/index.php/projets/voir/15

“imaginary friend – amie imaginaire” is a webcam adaption for “lala”. http://technekai.com/lala/index.html

“In this performance piece, I use my childhood doll as an interface for engaging with text projected on a screen. The language is inspired by the relationship between a child and her doll or imaginary friend. A recursive algorithm is used to fill the space of the screen with pre-written verses, which appear in random order. The doll is fitted with an accelerometer, a sensor that can detect position in space and speed of movement. As the doll is moved, the way text appears on the screen changes.”

Only 30 places available, please dont connect too late to
http://panoplie.emakimono.org/index.php/projets/voir/15
Don’t forget to register on the site if you didn’t do that yet

Aya Karpinska is a digital media artist and interaction designer. She creates interactive experiences through installation art, digital text, sound, and game design (but not all at the same time). Aya is the 2006 recipient of the Brown University Fellowship in Electronic Writing; she splits her time between Providence and New York City.

Open Ear event – Network Final Call for Works

:: Network – 20/11/07, call for works ::

A network is any system of interconnected points / locations, nodes, which become greater, augmented, than when in isolation. While emphasis is most often placed on the nodes, it is the connections / links / lines / flows, the spaces between, the hinterland of the network, and their resulting mesh / matrix, which provides the site, means and context for the networks ability to transfer and transform. Similarly art can be thought of as a space in-between:

“The work of art occupies a pivotal point between two sets of behaviour, the artist’s and the spectator’s. It is essentially a matrix, the substance between. It exists nether for itself nor by itself.” (Ascott, R. 2003, Telematic Embrace)

On November 20th Open Ear will host an event curated by Garrett Lynch (http://www.asquare.org /) entitled Network which will present performances on this theme. Sound and visual artists / groups working with networks as a thematic or technical element to their work within live performance contexts are invited to contribute to the event. Proposed performances can include the use of networks to dynamically generate or enhance performance, to collaboratively create a performance through a network, to discuss the nature of networks and their impact on society etc. All proposed performances are required to be audio-visual, audio or visual with selection preference given to audio-visual works. Performances can last up to a maximum of 30 minutes each.

As the event is free we are unable to offer individual payment but will provide access to a supply of equipment (please include a list of requirements in your proposal and we will attempt to cater for this) at the venue, suitable refreshments and possibly accommodation if required. Contributions to the event will be included in the DVD of all six events published by the C3U Music Label later in 2008.

Proposals should take the form of a word / pdf / rtf / txt document (two pages maximum) with:

1) A description of the work (500 words maximum).
2) Images to give us an idea of the proposed work.
3) A full list of required equipment (please note that the event will host several performers so complex configurations involving lengthy set-up times will not be catered for).
4) Urls to previous examples of work online.
5) A short bio (200 words maximum).
6) Artist(s) / group / performer(s) name and contact details.

Please email proposals as attachments (not pasted into the email) to Garrett Lynch (garrett [at] asquare dot org) no later than 12pm (GMT), Friday 02/11/07.

“The work of art, for those who use it, is an activity of unframing, of rupturing sense, of baroque proliferation or extreme impoverishment which leads to a recreation and a reinvention of the subject itself.” -Félix Guattari, “Chaosmosis: An Ethico-Aesthetic Paradigm”
