Call for artists.
Submission deadline:  September  21, 2015.
1st Award  100 Eur
2nd Award 50 Eur
3rd Award 50Eur
All international visual artists are & none are welcome to participate in

d.o.o., Nova Gorica, Slovenia and a non- profit association Humanist
association of Goriska region . Komunala d.o.o.  is a company that deals
also with garbage for the Council of Nova Gorica.
Today we swim in garbage. The world we live in is over populated, over
polluted, over  everything. How we deal with garbage needs a new approach,
a new way of dealing with this overgrowing problem. Recycling is one of the
possibilities. But how we view  garbage, how we use it, re- use it and what
is our personal relationship towards it, is a question to be asked. And
this is what we are asking ourselves in this project. How to redefine our
relationship towards garbage and how to popularize the idea of the thought
needed to move our perception. The works will be exhibited in an exhibition
space at the Regional Museum of Nova Gorica, Kromberk Castle, on-line and
an on-line catalog will be made for  this purpose.
Format: 10cm x 15cm ( 4” x 6” )

Call for Applications: University Master in Digital Arts at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona)

(Apologies for cross-postings)


Last Call for Applications:  University Master in Digital Arts at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona)


We are pleased to send you this information about the XIX edition of our Master in Digital Arts at Universitat Pompeu Fabra for those who might be interested in interactive art practice and theory in Barcelona.


Our Interdisciplinary Arts Master’s Program is designed for graduate students, engineers and working adults to explore questions about digital audiovisual practice and culture within the intersection of the Arts, Humanities, Science and Technology.


General Goals:


The Master's Degree in Digital Arts aims to contribute to the formation of audiovisual professionals in different aspects of creative production in the field of interactive audiovisual communication.


  • To approach both theoretically and experimentally the creative and technical aspects of digital media and their role in cultural production.


  • To promote expression through information and communication technologies which lead to new visual, musical and interactive art forms.


  • To provide analytic models and tools to explore specific languages induced by digital media and particularly, interactive audiovisual communication and networking.


  • Master the techniques for generating, processing and editing of images and sounds, and various software environments for authoring visual, musical and interactive compositions.


  • To understand, to experiment and to create with code, by learning the generative, algorithmic and procedural aspects of computer programming as a form of creative writing,


  • Encourage the use of digital media for the production of innovative and significant works.


  • To train students in the fundamental changes at the formal, conceptual, contextual, relational and narrative levels of audiovisual culture that occur with the introduction of electronic and digital media.


  • Encourage and promote new  and unconventional forms of human-computer interaction, and the creation of physical, tangible, embedded and embodied interfaces.


  • To promote contemporary art practices that critically use digital technologies to create aesthetic and meaningful experiences. The emphasis is on the arts, beyond the hegemonic discourse on media and digital culture.



Objectives:


  • To understand the nature of digital media and the cultural and technical aspects that characterize it

  • To learn the role of IT in communication and expression, as well as the new visual, musical and interactive forms driven by it.

  • To explore the specific languages created by digitalization, particularly focussing on online multimedia communication.

  • To gain a solid command of the techniques used to handle and edit images and sound, as well as of several programmes for visual, musical and interactive authorship.

  • To understand computer programming, especially as applied to creative tasks.

  • To be able to use digital media to produce innovative and meaningful pieces of work.


University Pompeu Fabra, has held 17 editions of the Masters’ program in Digital Arts over the years. This constitutes a solid background. Throughout these years, over three hundred students have successfully completed the program, which has allowed them to improve, in most cases, their capabilities and skills in order to meet the new challenges of their careers.

CHDH - EGREGORE SOURCE LIVE | REMOTE PERFORMANCE - 27 MAY 2015 AT 21H CEST (UTC+2)

CHDH - EGREGORE SOURCE LIVE
REMOTE PERFORMANCE - 27 MAY 2015 AT 21H CEST (UTC+2)

The egregore - source instrument will be played live remotely by chdh for a one time only performance.
To attend the show you only need a computer, the egregore software installed and an Internet connection.
http://www.chdh.net/egregore_source_live.php

_

The source code of the "egregore" performance is made fully available as a software to download, or as a usb key. This remote performance aims to exploit the physical dispersion of this digital support, in order to develop a broadcasting structure for a networked audiovisual performance, played on Wed. 27th May 2015, 21H CEST.

The multiple personal computers hosting the software constitute a distributed "stage", where the artists will be able to interpret "egregore" remotely by sending a data flow that activate the provided software. These control data are then stored on a server, and remain accessible and usable with the software.

DETAILS

- The instrument in your computer will receive in real time the control parameters played in Malakoff - France.
- All the computing is done locally on your computer, therefore every resulting sound and video will be slightly different.
- We have a chat for the audience to discuss in real time: #chdh on freenode.net
- The time is 21H CEST (UTC+2) and not 21H CET (UTC+1)
- Your computer must be connected to Internet, and egregore - source must have access to port 80


&&

LOCAL / VENUES

There is a few venues broadcasting the show in real time

New podcast: Eyal Weizman talks about the basic principles of forensic architecture and its links to the world of art and creation

New podcast: Eyal Weizman talks about the basic principles of forensic architecture, its practical applications, and its links to the world of art and creation.


Eyal Weizman is an Israel-born architect, theorist, and architect who works under the conceptual umbrella of forensic architecture. This term is also the name of a research project at Goldsmiths, University of London, that has assembled a team of researchers from disciplines ranging from architecture to film and archaeology, to gather evidence that can help shed light on complex situations in contexts of armed conflict war, and use it in legal proceedings. 

Timeline

Forensic architecture and the “political plastic”
Forensic aesthetics
Reconstructing histories
Social media as testimony
The matter-memory-subjectivity entanglement
Dynamic archaeology 
New orders of magnitude 
A differential in vision
Forensis, not forensics

News from FR

Hello Folks!

4 months after the Charlie Hebdo attack due to the war in the middle
east the things of the superstructure have turned as wrong as the
infrastructure going on (I mean the conservative neoliberal law from
Macron while poverty increases).

Freedom of speech is gone with the wind so radically that  terrorism
does not need it so widely to stop. Tarnac on the grill again.
The wars in the Middle East are getting so much wide as so long that
to hope for thirty years more lasting they said.
Now the French left has invented the concept of "racialization", but
it is not the face of the current situation and does not expect for a
real fight. Because the real target is missing so much it is diffused.

Emmanuel Todd is talking of "endo-xenophobia" turning inside, and
"exo-xenophobia" toward  outside. That is exactly what happens in my
country having lost its sovereignty and looking at EU's quotas...
Nationalism is not more what it was. Now there are the
national-patriotism as mostly history learned it worse about it, and
the nationalism as a regional right of microsolutions and inventions
of life into the deadly supranational union without freedom. Can be
deprived can be public, can be Communes, but try it. At the time of
microsolutions far from centralized solutions Anarchism may be reread
and may be to reinvent.

Sorry the following article is mostly about the conflict between
"racialization" and endo and exo "xenophobia" it is not acout The
coming insurrection but it is a beginning (about the critical mind

Call for (Snapchat) Friends - Audivisual Residues screening (26-27 May, SESC Ipiranga, SP)

Dear people,

This week I'm organizing a two-day workshop/ exhibit about hyperephemeral images at SESC Ipiranga, in the city of São Paulo.

One of the activities will be an experimental screening programme with content pulled straight from my Snapchat account, live curated from whatever is available from my contacts.

If you want to submit any image whatsoever or risk having your Snapchat story showing on public projection, please add me there. My username is b2kn.

I should be posting updates from the workshop in my story, so also add me if you want further info about it.

Best!
Menotti
