Failure Support Group – Help Failure Succeed!

Consider donating to help produce a Failure Support Group in Baltimore, MD, in April 2010.

Check out our video on Kickstarter and donate now!
The Institute for Infinitely Small Things is interested in failure and wants to produce a Failure Support Group in Baltimore, MD, as part of the Transmodern Festival. But we can’t make that happen without your help to donate small bits of cash to get us there.

Art projects fail a lot, particularly those that are participatory, public and/or social. They fail for different reasons and cause myriad revelations. Nevertheless, the structures that we use to talk about these works and contexts where they are presented often don’t leave room for discussing the failures plainly and objectively. Our Failure Support Group will provide an open and honest forum for creative folks to talk about their failures in a supportive context. Help the Institute for Infinitely Small Things bring the Failure Support Group to Baltimore by donating a small amount of money now.

Demilit, September 16th



#DEMILIT in San José, Ca. Sept. 16
Among many symptoms, San José is home to 10 government and 67 company locations on the Washington Post’s map of Top Secret America. We’ll study this creeping militarization through entry points such as drones, defense corporations, uses of force, gang profiling, and military bases. We’ll also take visitors on an outdoor exploration of downtown SJ with a focus on the security landscape. 

• Charlotte Casey, San Jose Peace & Justice Center and San José Code Pink
• Katherine Chandler, UC Berkeley, Rhetoric Department
• Raj Jayadev, Silicon Valley Debug
Presented by the Demilit team in conjunction with 01SJ Biennial and (OP)Space, CCA Architecture URBANlab.

451 South First Street
San José, Ca.

See for more info. More Details below….

Full Abstract
The crisis of the contemporary spatial condition is produced in part by the hyper-expansion of militarization into all areas of life. Demilit, short for Decoding Military Landscapes, is an open pedagogical project aiming to know how the military and militarization affects society and space. We at Demilit (DM) take stock of the military presence in both routine and unexpected ways by using research, sound recordings, images and more. Among other symptoms, San José is home to 10 government and 67 company locations on the Washington Post’s map of Top Secret America. We’ll unpack this military presence through topics such as drones, defense corporations, uses of force, gang profiling, military bases, and much more. We will also take visitors on an outdoor exploration in downtown SJ focusing on the security landscape.

The Nodel London network convenes again this Autumn for a season of Do It Yourself media activity across London. The open source movement has taken up residence in our consciousness and pushed itself firmly into our hardware. Now we all can make our own monster to take on the Big Society.

Following the ’06 and ’08 seasons, London venues, organisations and artists come together again to treat you to an Autumn of media events, exhibitions, workshops and residencies.

Highlights include Waterman’s ‘Unleashed Devices’ exhibition, a series of workshops at SPACE using electronics and Arduino, A10 Media Lab performances and a Digital Weekend at the V&A Sackler Centre.

Can we subvert the machine and build ourselves an alternative?
