New Networked Book Chapter: “Re-Locating” by Yasmine Abbas

Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art) presents:   “Re-Locating: Situational, Experienceable and Relational Design to Soothe the Stress of Travel”   by Yasmine Abbas   http://abbas.networkedbook.org

ABSTRACT: Stress is an undesirable offshoot of any kind of travel, forced or voluntary. To soothe the stress of travel, today’s mobile individuals — neo-nomads — engage in tactics of re:location, the practice of re-assembling a familiar and cushioned personal space, an image of home. The spaces and objects we design with mobility in mind should focus on bringing comfort to these mobile individuals. We learn however that in today’s consumerist, “liquid” and hypermobile world, linkages between PIGS — People, Information, Goods and Spaces — matter more than PIGS themselves. The territories of neo-nomads relate to linkages and are dynamic as a result.

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.

Uneven Geographies: Art and Globalization :: May 8 – July 4, 2010 :: The Geopolitical Turn: Art and the Contest of Globalization Conference, May 8 :: Nottingham Contemporary, Weekday Cross, Nottingham NG1 2GB, UK.

Uneven Geographies focuses on projects by artists concerned variously with visualising the transnational mobility of capital, goods and people in today’s global networks. Its point of departure is the assumption that the opaque and labyrinthine workings of worldwide economies tend to frustrate attempts to represent the historic conditions and expanding geographies that define current forms of globalization. Artists have consequently turned to the invention of innovative ways of imaging and narrating, analysing and reconceptualizing the processes and relations of globalization – whereby geopoetics mediates geopolitics.

Turbulence Commission: “Facetbook” by Liz Filardi

April 20, 2010
Turbulence Commission:
“I’m Not Stalking You; I’m Socializing: Facetbook” by Liz Filardi
http://turbulence.org/works/
stalkingsocial/facetbook

“Anxious about the lack of ownership and access to my personal history, I explore how the structure of Facebook provides a literal construct of identity, framing the tension between the opacity of image and the multiplicity of being. For several weeks, I clear my Facebook profile of public information only to spontaneously repopulate the fields and clear them again, each time leaving a single link in my “About Me” section. Facebook users who select the link will open a flattened “archive” version of the previously visible profile.”

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.

BACKGROUND

“Networked” proposes that a history or critique of interactive and/or participatory art must itself be interactive and/or participatory; that the technologies used to create a work suggest new forms a “book” might take.

In 2008, Turbulence.org and its project partners — NewMediaFix, Telic Arts Exchange, and Freewaves – issued an international, open call for chapter proposals. We invited contributions that critically and creatively rethink how networked art is categorized, analyzed, legitimized — and by whom — as norms of authority, trust, authenticity and legitimacy evolve.

Our international committee consisted of: Steve Dietz (Northern Lights, MN) :: Martha Gabriel (net artist, Brazil) :: Geert Lovink (Institute for Network Cultures, The Netherlands) :: Nick Montfort (Massachusetts Institute for Technology, MA) :: Anne Bray (LA Freewaves, LA) :: Sean Dockray (Telic Arts Exchange, LA) :: Jo-Anne Green (NRPA, MA) :: Eduardo Navas (newmediaFIX) :: Helen Thorington (NRPA, NY)

Built by Matthew Belanger (our hero!), http://networkedbook.org is powered
by WordPress, CommentPress and BuddyPress.

Networked was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the
Arts (United States). Thank you.

We are deeply grateful to Eduardo Navas for his commitment to both this
project and past collaborations with Turbulence.org.
