American Society for Cybernetics 2014 conference: "Living in Cybernetics"

Forwarded from - http://litsciarts.org

This year the ASC celebrates its 50th anniversary with an ambitious conference entitled “Living in Cybernetics." Three main parts deal with Cybernetics in the Past (former presidents help build an oral history of the society and its place in society, culture and the history of ideas), Cybernetics in the Present (paper presentations presenting current work), and Cybernetics in the Future (collectively developing a web site to be used as a resource by students and teachers in their work, thus bringing cybernetics to future generations). Conference proceedings will be published in Kybernetes and in Cybernetics and Human Knowing.

This friendly and multi-disciplinary venue construes cybernetics broadly across its first and second orders and its three waves. Please consider taking part in the 2014 meeting, and thanks for viewing and distributing this conference flyer:

 DRONES AT DEAF2014: Call for presentations and demonstrations on Friday 23 May 2014 from 2-4.30 pm

She is currently developing her PhD dissertation at TU Delft and a long-term research project named ‘Drones and Honeycombs’ with Het Nieuwe Instituut, which focuses on the architecture and landscape of war and of international relations. 

In the afternoon the stage is open to professionals who wish to share their drone related work with DEAF visitors.

If you would like to present or demonstrate your project indoors or outdoors at DEAF 2014 please forward your proposal (max 1 A4, max 2 visuals) to deaf-7uX2eh4HqS646/BSLNTNJQdu8GCfqo4Z@public.gmane.org

Beyond New Media Art Seminar at Kino Šiška, Ljubljana

Aksioma – Institute for Contemporary Art, Ljubljana, in collaboration with Kino Šiška Center For
Urban Culture, presents:

Domenico Quaranta
Beyond New Media Art
Seminar
www.aksioma.org/beyond.newmedia.art

Kino Šiška Center For Urban Culture
Trg prekomorskih brigad 3, Ljubljana
22 – 23 April 2014

What is New Media Art? What does this term really describe? What has occasioned the schism between this term
and the art scene it is supposed to describe? And lastly, what can explain the limited presence of this
artistic practice – which appears to have all the credentials for representing an era in which digital
media are powerfully reshaping the political, economic, social and cultural organisation of the world
we live in – in critical debates? All these and many other questions are tackled by Italian art critic
Domenico Quaranta in his new book Beyond New Media Art (Link Editions, 2013).

Beyond New Media Art is, on the one hand, an attempt to analyse the current positioning of the so-called New
Media Art within the broader field of contemporary arts and to investigate the historical, sociological
and conceptual reasons for its marginal position and limited visibility in contemporary art history. On
the other hand, the book is also an attempt to introduce new critical and curatorial strategies, which
would render this marginalisation a thing of the past, and to elucidate the topicality of art that deals
with media and the issues of the information age.

Domenico Quaranta will introduce the book at the press conference for journalists and experts and at a
two-day free seminar, intended primarily for students and artists, but open to general audiences.

On this occasion, the Aksioma issued a Slovenian translation of the book, which is available through an
online platform for print on demand and as a free e-book (epub and pdf): http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?type=&keyWords=onkraj+novomedijske+umetnosti&x=6&y=6&sitesearch=lulu.com&q=

The English version of the book is available at the following links:

Print on demand: http://www.lulu.com/shop/domenico-quaranta/beyond-new-media-art/paperback/product-21028929.html

e-book: http://www.lulu.com/shop/domenico-quaranta/beyond-new-media-art/ebook/product-21029057.html

To apply for the seminar please send your full name, e-mail address and telephone number to:
sonjagrdina@... The seminar will be held in English.

In the next days, some quotes from the book will be made available on the "Beyond New Media Art" blog, open to
discussion for both the participants in the seminar and a broader international audience. Check it out at
blog http://medianewmediapostmedia.wordpress.com/

Supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and the Municipality of Ljubljana.

Turbulence Commission: "iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project)" by Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Tim Perkis

April 14, 2014
Turbulence Commission: "iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project)" by Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Tim Perkis

"iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project)" is a social media mashup that uses the dynamic input of users to continuously rewrite a sonnet of William Shakespeare. The user phonetically rhymes a word or short phrase, which is added to the database of variations available to other users. For instance "unhappily forsworn" can be rhymed as "so snappily untorn." Each time the page is loaded, a different selection of user-defined substitutions is used. A transposed midi version of "Lachrimae" or "Seven Tears," by John Dowland (1563-1626), can be heard as well, with "perturbations" that increase as the sonnet text is modified.

"iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project)" is a 2013 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

BIOGRAPHIES

Scot Gresham-Lancaster is a composer, performer, instrument builder and educator. He is an Associate Professor of Sound Design at ATEC UT Dallas where he researches multimodal representations (the relationship of sonified and visualized data sets). As a member of the HUB, he was an early pioneer of "computer network music." Scot has created a series of "co-located" international Internet performances with music and dance. He has developed many "cellphone operas" and developed audio for games and other interactive products. He is also an expert in educational technology. Scot remains committed to a future in which Art and Science synergize each other. http://about.me/scotgl

Tim Perkis has been working in live electronic and computer sound for many years, performing, exhibiting installation works, and recording in North America, Europe and Japan. His work has largely been concerned with exploring the emergence of life-like properties in complex systems of interaction. In addition, he is a well known performer in the world of improvised music, having performed on his electronic improvisation instruments with hundreds of artists and groups, including Chris Brown, John Butcher, Eugene Chadbourne, Fred Frith, Gianni Gebbia, Frank Gratkowski, Luc Houtkamp, Yoshi Ichiraku, Matt Ingalls, Joelle Leandre, Gino Robair, ROVA saxophone quartet, Elliott Sharp, Leo Wadada Smith and John Zorn. Ongoing groups he has founded or played in include the League of Automatic Music Composers and the HUB -- pioneering live computer network bands -- and Rotodoti, the Natto Quartet, Fuzzybunny, All Tomorrow's Zombies and Wobbly/Perkis/Antimatter. http://www.perkis.com/_site/about/index.html

The user phonetically rhymes a word or short phrase, which is added to the database of variations available to other users. For instance "unhappily forsworn" can be rhymed as "so snappily untorn." Each time the page is loaded, a different selection of user-defined substitutions is used. A transposed midi version of "Lachrimae" or "Seven Tears," by John Dowland (1563-1626), can be heard as well, with "perturbations" that increase as the sonnet text is modified.</div>

DEAF2014 Biennale Rotterdam 21-24 May

DEAF2014 BIENNALE ROTTERDAM WEDNESDAY 21 - SATURDAY 24 May

deaf.nl


Dutch Electronic Art Festival (DEAF) serves as a public forum and meeting place for young creative talent as well as established professionals, scientists and business stakeholders whose work focuses on our contemporary technological culture.

 

THEME

The DEAF2014 biennale festival theme is The Progress Trap. Progress has become a means to an end in itself and has been decoupled from the cultural, ecological and social advances that it was supposed to help achieve. However seductive quick gains from technological solutions are, their temporary victories in the short term may cause much worse and bigger problems in the long run, luring us into The Progress Trap.

 

PROGRAMME

During this 10th edition of DEAF exhibitions, keynotes, seminars, workshops, evenings of …, films, performances and a satellite programme invite you to come and explore the theme “The Progress Trap”.

 

DEAF2014’s thematic exhibition addresses the unsustainable character of our current notion of progress by contrasting the lure of technology with artistic responses to our techno-centric notion of progress and attempts to escape the trap it results in.  

 

DEAF2014 also offers keynotes from three special guests: Alexa Clay, Adam Greenfield and Ronald Wright, of whom the latter coined the term “progress trap” in his bestselling book A Short History of Progress.

 

The theme will be addressed in a rich program of seminars organized by Het Nieuwe Instituut. How can one prevent from becoming programmable? What is programmable behaviour? These questions will be explored during the Unprogrammable Behaviour seminar.

 

These are only a few of the many seminars, performances, artists, installations and artworks that DEAF2014 has on offer.

 

LOCATION AND PARTNERS

Main location and main partner of DEAF2014 is Het Nieuwe Instituut. DEAF and Het Nieuwe Instituut have entered this partnership in the conviction that together they can further increase and deepen the impact and meaning of DEAF: both have a critical outlook towards innovation, act on the basis of a cultural context and want to think and work beyond the boundaries of the classical creative disciplines.

 

V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media, an interdisciplinary centre for art and media technology, has been organizing DEAF since 1994. Since 2012 DEAF has become independent with V2_as a partner.

Critique of the State of Tech

Theodor Holm Nelson, who coined the term hypertext, has been a thorn 
in the side of the computing establishment for more than a half 
century. In an encomium to his friend Douglas Engelbart, he took his 
critique to Shakespearean levels.
