Last year I collaborated with interactive agency Allentium last year and we built this virtual soundscape site. It is a streaming, real-time, non-repeating, self-generating experiment in sound. I have loaded in some of my own sounds but the most exciting part to me is the ability for you Rhizomers to contribute your own small sound clips to the system. I hope that as word gets out about the site people from around the world will contribute thus making it a truly global soundscape. Enjoy. And pass the word... www.mockingbirdproject.com

This year LA SUPERETTE comes to Chelsea, where artists will showcase original, handmade gifts (ranging from $1-$100) including recycled accessories, multifunctional stuffed animals, artist publications, funky house wares, and homemade clothes, with a special focus on "hacks," the custom configuration of pre-existing hardware or software.

Caleb Larsen is a young Seattle based new media and installation artist. He was raised in the northern reaches of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and attended school in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Originally trained as a painter, Larsen attempts to treat technology, not as a gimmick, but as natural addition to the artistic practice. His most recent works loosely revolve around two central concepts: Language and Mapping. Larsen��s current point of inspection involves creating intersections of digital and physical culture by reinterpreting online information and resources from community based websites.

At the present Larsen is working on a suite of projects based on Google News headlines. The headlines are processed in realtime and produce simultaneous outcomes ranging from bizarre video montages to large generated associative word drawings. Using computer programming, Legos, video, dynamic images, and printed text Larsen aims to create an alternate methodology for exploring contemporary culture.

Larsen holds his Bachleor of Fine Arts from Western Michigan University. He has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Canada, Greece and Romania. He attended the Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art, the School of Visual Art Artist Residency, and most ...

Italian Art History 2.0

(0)

A new book available online and in print focuses on Italian artists and traces twenty years of practice and protest in digital society. 'NETWORKING, The Net as an Artwork,' by Tatiana Bazzichelli, constructs an historic account of hacktivist projects in Italy. Bazzichelli's timeline begins in the early-1980s and considers the ways that the emergence of bulletin board systems (BBS's), the internet, video, personal computers, and other communication devices inspire collaboration and savvy navigation of underground artistic and political subcultures. The book is the first of its kind and draws on a rich legacy of new media activities in this region. It includes profiles on artists 0100101110101101.ORG, [epidemiC], Jaromil, Giacomo Verde, Giovanotti Mondani Meccanici, Correnti Magnetiche, Candida TV, Tommaso Tozzi, Federico Bucalossi, Massimo Contrasto, Mariano Equizzi, Pigreca, Molleindustria, Guerriglia Marketing, Sexyshock, Phag Off, and others. Simultaneously, 'it builds a reflection on the new role of the artist and author who become networker, operating in collective nets, reconnecting to neoavant-garde artistic practices of the 1960s (first and foremost Fluxus), but also Mail art, Neoism, and [the work of the collective] Luther Blissett.' The book will, thus, be of interest to those studying more long-term artistic epochs and tactical performances in all parts of the world. - Richard Sprinkle

24072nd dorkbot-nyc meeting: Dec 6th

(0)

douglas repetto:

The 24072nd dorkbot-nyc meeting will take place on Wednesday, December 6th, 2006, at 7pm at Location One in SoHo.

Please bring snacks to share!

Featuring the fragrant and marvellous:

Sam Freeman: 1000 Ways It Doesn't Work
1000 Ways It Doesn't Work is a multimedia art project which attempts to come to terms with the General Electric Corporation. Through installations, performances, videos, programs, correspondence, and web pages the project seeks the human dimensions and implications of the multi-national behemoth that is GE. The presentation will include an overview of all the pieces involved, and a discussion of where the project can go from here. http://1000ways.org

Marisa Olson: Oh.Yeah.I.Love.You.Baby
Marisa's work deals with popular music and the cultural history of technology. She's just started production on her first sound art album, "Oh.Yeah.I.Love.You.Baby," in which each word in the album title is also the title of a respective track whose lyrics consist solely of that word. To her, these words are the "greatest hits" of pop lyrics, and each utterance of them is culled from hours and days of pop music samples. Of course, Marisa's work is also often about failure, humiliation, and a lack of talent. Accordingly, she's not sure whether her project sucks or not. She could use a little feedback on this work in progress. http://www.marisaolson.com

Rick Silva: RSS Jockey
Silva will do a short presentation of his work in the last 8 years that has used the d.j. and d.j.ing as a metaphor. including a screening of silva's 1999 short film 'scratch', brief overviews of recent projects rssjockey.com and satellitejockey.net and a sneak preview of his upcoming project 'natural selection ...
