Bodies of Planned Obsolescence: Digital performance and the global politics of electronic waste

Dear all
I am very pleased to announce our new exhibition at Watermans, Bodies of Planned Obsolescence: Digital performance and the global politics of electronic waste. 
The exhibition is the result of an amazing journey and a collaborative research project that started in London, continued to Lagos and Hong Kong and came to an end in London this week. 

Bodies of Planned Obsolescence is an art-science research project that engages with the global economy of discarded electronics. Old computers and other electronic appliances from countries in the West, including the UK, are often exported to West-Africa and China. As part of the project, an international group of artists, cultural theorists and scientists followed this global stream of waste to Nigeria, Hong Kong, and the UK, and took part in e-waste recycling labour on dumps and in factories in these places.

In a journey filled with piles of all sorts of electronic materials and devices, from old flat screen TVs to computers and household appliances; keyboards and other plastic shells; CDs, DVDs and their boxes; cables and other peripherals, the research group spent a few (adventurous!) days working at an e-waste dump site connected to the Alaba market in Lagos, an enormous market in the western outskirts of Lagos which includes one of the biggest used electronics trading sites in Nigeria. Following Lagos, the group travelled to Hong Kong, where they participated in electronic waste recycling labour, dismantling computers and monitors, but where they also explored the consumer world and trade at used and new electronics markets. During the last part of their research, the group spent a week working together at Watermans and exploring e-waste recycling sites around London.

Bodies of Planned Obsolescence forms a platform for artists and academics, but also looks to open public debate and discussions around the problematics of e-waste. 'Bodies of Planned Obsolescence' is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London.
 
The exhibition will be open from 5-24 July and on Saturday 4 July, there will be a public event from 2-6PM and great opportunity to meet and chat with the participants, Dani Ploeger, Shu Lea Cheang, Neil Maycroft, Chris Williams and Hannah Millest, who will be sharing their experiences and research.
I hope you can join us!
All the best
Irini

Exh. and Conf.: Experiments in Art and Technology (Salzburg, 26 Jul 15)

(conf will be in english, exhibition runs 25.7.2015 - 1.11.2015)

From: Christine Forstner <info@...>
Date: Jul 1, 2015
Subject: CONF: Experiments in Art and Technology (Salzburg, 26 Jul 15)

Museum der Moderne Salzburg, 26.07.2015
<http://www.museumdermoderne.at/de/ausstellungen/aktuell/details/mdm/eat-experiments-in-art-and-technology/>

Symposium zur Ausstellung "E.A.T. – Experiments in Art and Technology"

26. Juli 2015, 14.30–18 Uhr
Das Symposium wird in englischer Sprache abgehalten.

Das Museum der Moderne Salzburg präsentiert die erste umfassende 
Rückschau auf die Aktivitäten von Experiments in Art and Technology 
(E.A.T.), einem einzigartigen Verbund von Ingenieuren, Künstlerinnen und 
Künstlern, der in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren Geschichte geschrieben 
hat. Künstler wie Robert Rauschenberg und Robert Whitman taten sich mit 
Billy Klüver, dem visionären Ingenieur der Bell Telephone Laboratories, 
sowie seinem Kollegen Fred Waldhauer zu dieser wegweisenden Initiative 
zusammen, um in einer beispiellosen Zusammenarbeit Kunstwerke zu 
realisieren.

Vor dem Hintergrund der sich rasant entwickelnden Technologien wurde das 
Ziel verfolgt, Kunstwerke zu realisieren, in denen die neuesten 
technischen Möglichkeiten zum Einsatz kamen. Die Begegnung zwischen 
Künstlerinnen, Künstlern und Ingenieuren, so hofften die Mitglieder von 
E.A.T., würde Kunstwerke hervorbringen, deren Entstehung ohne die 
Mitwirkung ausgebildeter Techniker mit ihrer besonderen Kompetenz nicht 
möglich wäre. Das wiederum sollte die Ingenieure dazu anregen, in neue 
Richtungen zu denken, und so die zukünftige technologische Entwicklung 
mitgestalten.

In "9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering", einer Reihe von multimedialen 
Performances, die in der gigantischen 69th Armory Regiment-Halle 1966 in 
New York stattfanden, und später mit dem "Pepsi Pavillon" auf der Expo 
’70 in Osaka, zogen die Aktivitäten von E.A.T. ein Massenpublikum an.
Namhafte Expertinnen und Experten sowie Protagonisten vermitteln im 
Symposium zur Ausstellung die Geschichte von E.A.T. und beleuchten 
Herausforderungen, Chancen und Nachwirkungen dieser außergewöhnlichen 
Initiative.

international CALL re: "Biodiversity/Extinction" art exhibition, NYC

INTERNATIONAL OPEN CALL!


"SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: Biodiversity/Extinction"
the 17th international art-sci juried exhibition
organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc.(ASCI)
October 10, 2015 – February 28, 2016
at the New York Hall of Science

Today we are learning the importance of the conservation of Earth’s biodiversity for more than its innate beauty, capacity to inspire art, and to lift our spirits. It is acknowledged by scientists and even governments around the world, as the key indicator of the health of our planet’s ecosystems. And, a rich biodiversity underpins ecosystem “services” (such as recycling of nutrients, purifying water, removing carbon dioxide and adding oxygen to our atmosphere, and sustaining habitat for animals and organisms like trees, and seeds that produce food), all essential for human sustainability on our beautiful planet.

This exhibition will demonstrate the wide diversity of visual tropes that today’s artists are employing to reflect upon the crisis of biodiversity loss and species extinction. We are seeking 2D images of original art executed in any media.

OUR DISINGUISHED CO-CURORS:
Elizabeth Corr, the Manager of Art Partnerships at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC); and Dr. Paula J. Ehrlich, the President & CEO of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation.

DETAILS:  http://www.asci.org/artikel1417.html
DEADLINE:  July 23, 2015

New podcast: Roc Jiménez de Cisneros about EVOL's very free deconstruction and reinterpretation of György Ligeti's 'Continuum' and Hanne Darboven’s 'Opus 17a'

New podcast: Roc Jiménez de Cisneros about EVOL's very free deconstruction and reinterpretation of György Ligeti's 'Continuum' and Hanne Darboven’s 'Opus 17a'

Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/evol/capsula

The name of EVOL comes from the Catalan word for Sambucus Ebulus, a herbaceous species of elder with a characteristic foetid smell. Under this moniker, Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Stephen Sharp make what they call 'computer music for hooligans' or 'rave synthesis'.

Since 1996, their deconstructed rave objects have been released on record labels such as Editions Mego, Diagonal, Entr'acte, Presto!?, and ALKU, and presented as installations and live performances worldwide.
Even though they reject a clear divide between high and low culture, their aesthetic exploration of algorithmic composition could be said to occupy a neutral place between academia, experimental music and club music. With influences ranging from popular culture – from Basshunter to 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' - to highbrow music by composers such as György Ligeti and Hanne Darboven, their music is slippery as slime when it comes to definitions. As their close friend Goodiepal put it a while ago: 'it’s radical computer music'.

A list of keywords that have been applied to their work may offer some clues to crucial and lateral aspects of their work: rave, synthesis, elasticity, time dilation, chronesthesia, goo, hoover, hoover-stretching, hyperobject, slime, psychedelia, altered states, fractal, upward spiral, downward spiral, warping, hooliganism, mereology, horns, horny, kaiju, tetrafluoroethane, acid, anti-humanism, mentasmic, climax, freeze-frame, recursive, poing, non-anthem, strobe, party boobytrap, fold-in, continuum, squashed, monolith, asymmetry, homeomorphic, recurrence, fluorescence, phlop.

SON[I]A talks with Roc Jiménez de Cisneros about EVOL's very free deconstruction and reinterpretation of György Ligeti's 'Continuum' and Hanne Darboven’s 'Opus 17a', and how these works relate to the duo’s current artistic practice. Unusual notions of time in relation to music, algorithmic reverse engineering, complexity through simplicity, anti-climax, ancient trance music, weird mental states and Dick Higgins' Superboredom concept pop up in the conversation.

Enjoy!

herbaceous species of elder with a characteristic foetid smell. Under 
this moniker, Roc Jim&eacute;nez de Cisneros and Stephen Sharp make what they 
call 'computer music for hooligans' or 'rave synthesis'.<br><br>Since 
1996, their deconstructed rave objects have been released on record 
labels such as Editions Mego, Diagonal, Entr'acte, Presto!?, and ALKU, 
and presented as installations and live performances worldwide.<br>Even 
though they reject a clear divide between high and low culture, their 
aesthetic exploration of algorithmic composition could be said to occupy
 a neutral place between academia, experimental music and club music. 
With influences ranging from popular culture &ndash; from Basshunter to 'Close
 Encounters of the Third Kind' - to highbrow music by composers such as 
Gy&ouml;rgy Ligeti and Hanne Darboven, their music is slippery as slime when 
it comes to definitions. As their close friend Goodiepal put it a while 
ago: 'it&rsquo;s radical computer music'.<br><br>A list of keywords that have 
been applied to their work may offer some clues to crucial and lateral 
aspects of their work: rave, synthesis, elasticity, time dilation, 
chronesthesia, goo, hoover, hoover-stretching, hyperobject, slime, 
psychedelia, altered states, fractal, upward spiral, downward spiral, 
warping, hooliganism, mereology, horns, horny, kaiju, tetrafluoroethane,
 acid, anti-humanism, mentasmic, climax, freeze-frame, recursive, poing,
 non-anthem, strobe, party boobytrap, fold-in, continuum, squashed, 
monolith, asymmetry, homeomorphic, recurrence, fluorescence, phlop.<br><br>SON[I]A
 talks with Roc Jim&eacute;nez de Cisneros about EVOL's very free 
deconstruction and reinterpretation of Gy&ouml;rgy Ligeti's 'Continuum' and 
Hanne Darboven&rsquo;s 'Opus 17a', and how these works relate to the duo&rsquo;s 
current artistic practice. Unusual notions of time in relation to 
music, algorithmic reverse engineering, complexity through simplicity, 
anti-climax, ancient trance music, weird mental states and Dick Higgins'
 Superboredom concept pop up in the conversation.<br><br></span></div>

ADA: THOUSANDS OF ARTWORKS
Since its foundation in 1999, the ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (former Database of Virtual Art) has grown to be the most important online archive for digital art. In cooperation with established media artists, researchers and institutions it has been documenting the rapidly evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a decade and contains today a selection of thousands of artworks at the intersection of art, science and technology.

COLLABORATIVE ARCHIVING OF DIGITAL ART
The large assortment of information on Sean CUBITT and hundreds of other leading scholars and artists were carried out by the scholars and artists themselves in assistance with members of the ADA community. The new ADA web tool allows members to archive artist statements, works descriptions, literature, information on exhibitions, high resolution images, blueprints, videos etc. Artists and scholars are invited to contribute actively to the archive and to work collaboratively on the documentation and analysis of digital art.

EXPANDED DOCUMENTATION FOR THE NEEDS OF DIGITAL ART
Due to the processual, ephemeral, interactive, technology-based and fundamentally context-dependent character of digital art, it is at risk for becoming extinct without an adequate documentation. Therefore, the ADA is based on an expanded concept of documentation, which takes account of the specific conditions of digital art.

SHARE YOUR RESEARCH AND NEWS WITH PEERS AND THE COMMUNITY
The community can upload publications and PDFs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant news.

ARTISTS represented, among many others: Rebecca ALLEN, Suzanne ANKER, Cory ARCANGEL, Roy ASCOTT, Louis BEC, Maurice BENAYOUN, Paolo CIRIO, Charlotte DAVIES, FLEISCHMANN & STRAUSS, Masaki FUJIHATA, Ken GOLDBERG, Agnes HEGEDÜS, Lynn HERSHMAN LEESON, Ryoji IKEDA, Eduardo KAC, Ken RINALDO, KNOWBOTIC RESEARCH, Lev MANOVICH, George LEGRADY, Golan LEVIN, Rafael LOZANO-HEMMER, Joseph NECHVATAL, Michael NAIMARK, David ROKEBY, Jeffrey SHAW, Julius v.

Nontheless, these miniature works in size, often range in content as far beyond their formal limitation as the limits are limiting, reflecting the contrast in magnitude behind the idea and technique of the leap second –from the atomical to the astronomical– when adding an extra second to time as the earth wobbles in its rotation. And also reflecting on the irregularity and unpredictability of this drift as a sort of glitch in nature, given the recent technology to measure and process it precicely. Finally, a sense of precarity in all this, which encompasses global fragility, technological hubris, system-glitches from implementing leap seconds in computing; artistic self-precarization and, perhaps, self-consume as metaphors. For all these reasons an anti-event as well as an event.

LIVE FEED
The Leap Second Festival is a distributed, online festival lasting only one second, which means that all works will be exhibited and performed at the same time, 30. June 23:59:60 UTC, simultaneously during the leap second. The live feed will consist of all the works being available for broadcasting, and will last one second. Check what UTC time to get the correct time for the event in our timezone.

CREDITS AND NOTES
Many thanks to all participants making this curious event possible, and even real (as real as time gets)! Thanks also to Arts Council Norway (Art and New Technology), for the boldness of funding such a festival, despite the brevity and virtuality of the occasion. The festival is produced by Ars Publica / noemata and is curated & coordinated by Bjørn Magnhildøen. The future of the leap second is uncertain. The World Radiocommunication Conference will vote on abolishing the leap second later in 2015. Even so, The Leap Second Festival might prevail as other pagan celebrations of earth cycles.
