LIVING EARTH 
FIELD NOTES FROM THE DARK ECOLOGY PROJECT 2014-2016
- OUT NOW!

Edited by Mirna Belina & Sonic Acts
Published by Sonic Acts Press
Design by Arthur Roeloffzen
Book, 256 pp., English text, illustrated

Introduction price: 16,50 EUR
Estimated shipping date: June 1st

Living Earth is a new book filled with ideas, conversations, lectures, and documentation of commissioned
installations, soundwalks, concerts and performances made for and during the Dark Ecology project.
This three-year project, a collaboration of Sonic Acts and the Norwegian curator Hilde Methi, ran from
2014 to 2016 in different places in Norway and Russia and included three curated ‘journeys’. Living
Earth is a living recreation of these research trips in the Barents Region, from Kirkenes and Svanvik in
Norway to Nikel, Zapolyarny and Murmansk in Russia.

The project was inspired by Timothy Morton’s concept of ‘dark ecology’ and his philosophy of
‘ecology without nature’. Morton offeres a radical criticism of the modernist way of thinking about
nature as something outside of us, and instead confronts us with an interconnected ‘mesh’ of all
living and non-living objects. He ruminates on this idea in his essay for Living Earth entitled ‘What Is
Dark Ecology’, stating right at the beginning that ecological awareness is ‘weird weirdness’.

Living Earth is a 256-page trip with artists, thinkers, curators and other Dark Ecology participants into
the dark space of rethinking nature and art, also adding to the contemporary Anthropocene debate. The
project motives and its impact are discussed in the interview with the curatorial team ‘Outside the
Comfort Zone’, which opens the book. Next to Timothy Morton’s long essay the book contains
contributions by Susan Schuppli (‘Dirty Pictures’), and Berit Kristofferson (‘The Workable

Cultural Democracy in a Digital World - Symposium & Workshop

Cultural Democracy in a Digital World - Symposium & Workshop

11th June 2016, 10am - 4pm
Access Space, 3-7 Sidney Street, Sheffield, S1 4RG, UK

Please book your free ticket at EventBrite - tinyurl.com/zchoum8


In 1986, a conference gathered in Sheffield to discuss a manifesto proposing cultural democracy. Cultural democracy is a very simple yet powerful idea. It proposes that democracy is never merely "political" and that in a media-drenched society we need to have equal access to the means of cultural input as well as cultural outputs. Who gets to tell the story determines in large part the nature of the story that the rest of us hear. Thirty years later the ideas behind cultural democracy are still powerful and timely. We are gathering at Access Space in Sheffield, UK on June 11 2016 to see if we now have the tools to turn these ideas into action.

More info about the context for this event can be found at the Access Space website - tinyurl.com/hnbd6fe

The day is led by Dr. Owen Kelly, one of the original conference organisers, and now Principal Lecturer In Online Media at Arcada University, Helsinki, Finland. tinyurl.com/zw7cmeq

The original 1986 Culture & Democracy manifesto is downloadable here as a pdf - tinyurl.com/jl7s6g2

Lunch will be provided - please inform us of any dietary needs by Wed 7th June

Build your own AV Synth ­ “The Simulacrum Machine” with Ewa Justka - workshop

During this 2 days workshop we will build “The Simulacrum Audio­Visual Machine” which will bring you to the constantly fluctuating feedback loop between auditory and visual cathartic noise.


The workshop is suitable for musicians, VJs and anyone else interested in making audio­-visual noisssse. It’s suitable both for beginners in electronics as well as for more advanced participants. You will learn reading schematics, soldering techniques and principles of video and audio signal processing.

During the first day you will build an audio synth based on weird watery unpredictable sequencer(ish) that you can plug directly to R (red), G(green) and B(blue) of the video synth. You can decide which sequence you want to be played by means of patching. The synth can be quite noisy and unpredictable depending on the patch you make. There is also CV input and frequency control (3 pots).

During the second day you will build a video synth based on Arduino that you can plug to LCD screen or CRT with VGA input.You can use an audio synth that we built during the first day as an input as well as any other audio input.

DIY Human Enhancement Clinic #1 - Your Hormones

Dear spectres, 

Below might be a little off topic to this list, but i know there are quite a few that have an interest.



Do-It-Yourself Human Enhancement Clinic (DIY HEC) #1

Your Hormones – extract and deploy

Sat. June 11, 13.00 - 17.30, Waag Society, Amsterdam 

With Maja Smrekar, Spela Petric, and a remote presentation of the Open Source Estrogen project by Mary Maggic and Byron Rich
 

What use are hormones, to us, to others, to other species? What if you extract them yourself instead of leaving that to the pharmaceutical industry? What can you make? Cocktails, connections, corrections?

In this first edition of DIY Human Enhancement Clinic, invited artists-researchers Maja Smrekar and Špela Petrič will teach and tell you how and what for to isolate your own hormones, by extracting them from your urine. What can we then use these hormones for? Injecting them back into our bodies, or mixing them into a fancy cocktail?

Maja and Špela will show us – with a special appearance of Mary Tsang and Byron Rich of the Open Source Estrogen project – that hormones are not only influencing our own bodies. New ways of modifying our hormones also affects our relationships with the species around us, and these effects aren’t always as straightforward as you may think. Starting from Maja’s K-9_topology project, Špela’s exciting new work with plants, and your own hormones in the test tube before you, we will open a discussion on human enhancement that us out of our human-centeredness.

(this workshop is suitable for artists, students and scientists and anyone interested).

Do-It-Yourself Human Enhancement Clinic

The DIY Human Enhancement Clinic investigates novel strategies for public engagement with new developments in biotechnology. By bringing artistic, scientific and humanities research together with the public in a hands-on space, the DIY HEC aims to create reciprocity, shared responsibility and a more humane understanding and development of technologies to enhance human kind.

Waag Society, Nieuwmarkt 4, Amsterdam

10 June, 13:00 – 18:00

Entrance fee €10,-

Participants:

Špela Petrič

Špela Petrič (1980), BSc, MA, lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She was artist in residence at Waag Society and is now a fellow researcher. Her artistic practice combines natural sciences, new media and performance.

While working towards an egalitarian and critical discourse between the professional and public spheres, she tries to envision artistic experiments that produce questions relevant to anthropology, psychology, and philosophy. She extends her artistic research with art/sci workshops devoted to informing and sensitizing the interested public, particularly younger generations. She is a member of Hackteria and winner of the Bio Art & Design award.

Maja Smrekar

Maja Smrekar was born 1978 in Slovenia, 2005 graduated at the Sculpture Department of Fine Art Academy in Ljubljana, Slovenia; currently finishing MA at the New Media Department. Her main interests are based at the phenomenology of perception and the concept of life. Among others, she has been collaborating with Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana for the last eight years and with Aksioma Institute for the last five years. Under their production she has been executing projects, connecting the intersections of humanistic and natural sciences into the interdisciplinary art works.

Mary Tsang

Mary Maggic is an artist-biologist practicing in civic biosciences, open source organisms and tools, and how to deploy them. Her projects explore the biopolitical nature of new biotechnologies, their roots in society and transhumanism, and the question of who gets emancipatory access. Since 2013 she has partnered with a filmmaker to produce a documentary web-series on “bio-art” and emerging communities in DIYBio. The web-series DIYSECT hopes to initiate conversations on the rapid effect of biotechnologies on our society. Her most recent work involves gender-hacking, estrogen synthesis/mutagenesis, and promises of "significant otherness." She is currently pursuing her masters in Media Arts and Sciences at MIT Media Lab, Design Fiction research group.

Byron Rich

Having grown up on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains in western Canada, where a seemingly endless wild gives way to the rapidly expanding influence of human hubris, Byron was compelled to make things that ask unanswerable questions. He pursued a degree in art at The University of Calgary before wandering the islands of the South Pacific, finally finding himself in Buffalo, New York where he obtained an MFA in Emerging Practices at The University at Buffalo. He now teaches Electronic Art, Intermedia and Painting at Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

This DIY HEC is part of DITO’s and supported by the European Commission.

Our project, 'Doing-It-Together Science', DITOs, represents a step change in European public engagement with science and innovation. We propose moving from a model in which scientific research, innovation, and problem-solving is mainly driven by scientific/professional institutions to one based on active public participation and capacity building with various levels and strategies of engagement in the scientific process. At the core of our ethos is a recognition of people's existing expertise and the different ways people want to and do engage in science and technology. The project is aimed at elevating public engagement with science across Europe from passive engagement with the process of developing science to an active one. Citizen Science and Do It Yourself (DIY) scientific efforts demonstrate that this is possible, and our aim is to ensure that the European Research Area will become leader in ‘deep’ public engagement that is afforded by these advances.

As a 'Coordination and Support Action', this project will support and build upon DIY, grassroots, and frugal innovation initiatives so that in the short and medium term we sustain localised capacity building and in the long term the effects of these grassroots efforts channel to policy makers at different levels, from external advice to societal inputs, regarding appropriate research and innovation policies.

The proposal includes the participation of policy bodies (European Citizen Science Association, DE), SMEs (Tekiu, UK; Eutema, AT), Universities (University College London, UK; Universite Paris Descartes, FR; University of Genève, CH), Science galleries and public spaces (Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, BE; Medialab-Prado, E; Kersnikova Institution, SL) and NGOs (Meritum Association, PL; Waag Society, NL).

Trust Me, I'm An Artist: New Podcasts & Articles

Dear Spectrites,

While we are preparing for the new "Trust Me, I'm An Artist" 
event around "Heirloom" by Gina Czarnecki and John Hunt at 
the Medical Museion in Copenhagen 
(http://www.museion.ku.dk/heirloom/), we are happy to 
provide you with some reading and audio material from the 
Prague event:

- "Molding the Signifier" – Codesculpting the Possibel 
Shapes of a Future Consciousness, by Ivor Diosi
This article introduces the art/science/transmedia project 
"Molding the Signifier" from the point of view of the artist 
and maps out its wider cultural and societal connotations, 
reach and significance.
"Molding the Signifier" is a collaborative work of humane 
after people, an art-science group, addressing questions of 
the future of the human condition, aiming for a 
machine-unreadable humanity, creating the future Humane Other.

- Ivor Diosi's "Molding the Signifier": An All-Too-Human 
Victor by Ondřej Cakl
In this article, curator Ondřej Cakl discusses the 
biocybernetic work "Molding the Signifier" by Ivor Diosi.
The author reveals two factors that most essentially 
influenced the decision to present this work as part of the 
Trust Me I'm an Artist project event in Prague (16-19 
November 2016): It questions the notion of AI as it 
currently exists, suggesting that the ideas of "artificial", 
"independent" or "higher" intelligence and existence are all 
too human (and from that point of view therefore dangerous). 
He argues that "Molding the Signifier", although it doesn't 
confront existing legislation, does question the ethical 
core of the essential latent purposes of bio-technologies as 
a means of human creativity.

You can also listen to the artist and curator discussing the 
work with Annick Bureaud in the podcast series on the 
Audiolats channel on the Creative Disturbance platform.

Enjoy one or the other or both !

100 Years of Aída Carballo: Self-Portrait with Biography - Berlin (rare gem)

“30 years ago, with a mix of reverence and adolescent fear, I preserved Aída Carballo`s texts and papers
from the inevitable destruction that would follow her passing: she was part of my childhood and became
became my mentor. 
I thought I knew her well, but in the process of rescuing her writings I discovered a secret Aída, one who
remains hidden to this day.” Dan Arenzon

A cult artist, a teacher of hundreds and a mentor to many, she was born in Buenos Aires on the outskirts of an
art market that decides who we know and who we must ignore, but in this case, her magic prevails. 
On the 100th anniversary of her birth, this exhibition brings us the voice, the story, the image and the
spirit of a true artist of the Americas.
This is the first exhibition to share the intimate and private writings behind her masterpiece
Autorretrato con autobiografía (Self-portrait with Autobiography).

Aída ́s unique voice as a woman who always fought for freedom, will also commemorate the 200th
anniversary of the independence of Argentina at the Cervantes Institute in Utrecht, the next stop on this
show’s tour. 

Argentine Embassy,  Kleiststr. 23-26 4th floor Berlín. 030 22668930

OUT at the WAG "I don't shake robot hands" by Michael C Andrews . May 19 - July 19 2016.

Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to present "I don't shake robot hands" by Michael C Andrews . May 19 - July 19 2016, at the Widget Art Gallery http://www.chiarapassa.it/wag Web-App cross-device. It's always available the osx-dashboard version at http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html Enjoy the show!

Best regards, Chiara Passa


About the SHOW

Michael C Andrews is visual artist and Assistant Professor at SAIC Chicago. He is well-known for be part of the fiber art movement. His artistic research uses epic craft techniques to revamp familiar textile applications.

"I'm filling the WAG room with flirtatious bodies. Each one does a slow strip tease but instead of removing articles of clothing the bodies are erotically tuning themselves inside out. There will be five performers in total over the course of the WAG exhibition. Each one will appeal to a variety of tastes and desires. It's like a drag show for the bodiless" (Michael).


About the WAG

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket. Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.

So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.<br>WAG website <a href="http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html">http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html</a><br><br>--<br>Chiara Passa - media artist<br><a href="mailto:chiarapassa@...">chiarapassa@...</a><br><a href="http://www.chiarapassa.it">http://www.chiarapassa.it</a><br>
