Mapping Soundscapes

(0)


I thought about doing this a while back, and someone has finally created it: adding dimension to mapping by overlaying soundscapes. Gridskipper brings us news of Sound-seeker, a project out of New York that, to quote the creators, "privileges the ear over the eye". Sound-seeker overlays sample soundscapes from around the Big Apple on Google Maps to provide a sense of not only what is on the map, but what it sounds like. Sound-seeker is part of the New York Society of Acoustic Ecology, which runs NYSoundmap, which is carrying out various auditory art experiments in the city.

Samples up to 20 MB can be submitted to Sound-seeker for inclusion.

Electrical Walks

(0)

In 2003, Berlin-based sound artist Christina Kubisch began an ongoing project called "Electrical Walks." This project employs specially built headphones that receive electromagnetic signals from the environment and convert them into sound. Kubisch maps a given territory, noting "hot spots" (ATM machines, security systems, electronic cash registers, subway systems, etc.) where the signals are particularly strong or interesting. She then loans the headphones to the public, allowing participants to undertake an auditory drive through the invisible network of electromagnetic information.

Slippage: net.art Exhibition Announcement

(0)


Nanette Wylde:

Exhibition Announcement

"Slippage: fragilities and instabilities in the phenomena of meaning"

an exhibition of net.art, runs parallel to ISEA2006/ZeroOne San José. http://01sj.org

Exhibition URL: http://slippage.net
Exhibition dates: July 15 - August 31, 2006
Curator: Nanette Wylde

Slippage exists in the grey areas of language and social interaction. It is the realm of the in-between--the place of disjunction, expectations, covert meanderings, and the processes and residue of questioning minds. Sites selected for "Slippage" explore and expose relationships between intention, perception, control, experience, behavior, memory, knowing and the unexpected.

Artists include Mez Breeze; Krista Connerly; Juliet Davis; Lisa Hutton; Paula Levine; Jess Loseby, et al.; UBERMORGEN.COM; and Jody Zellen.

Down Mexico Way, In the UK

(0)

The Mexican border city of Tijuana often garners more attention for its poverty and migration politics than its thriving artist communitiy. 'Tijuana Organic: Women's Border Realities,' an exhibition at London's Space Gallery, sheds new light on things in its presentation of the work of ten local female artists. Included in the show is photography, painting, installation, and new media meant to reveal women's roles in the area. Notions of barriers and access are among the most predominant themes, here, whether manifesting as fleshy boundaries or topographic markings. But the topics touched upon also signify on other levels. Tania Candiani satirizes the technologies of war in turning household objects into weapons, and media collective Bulbo's video and radio transmissions document the challenges faced by female machinists. The subtext of the exhibit, which was curated by Maria Montserrat Sanchez and first organized by Manchester's Cornerhouse, is the use of artistic media to reevaluate mainstream media portrayals of Tijuana women. The show's 'organic' contextualization is one in which collective actions might germinate a new image. - Marisa Olson

Texas based artist, Max Kazemzadeh's Sun.Dial project is a 'an internet-based installation project that fosters a sense of shared global space and time. The principle system consists of twelve LCD displays suspended from an overhead apparatus in an outward-facing ring. This circular display is the hub of a world-wide input system. Each screen displays the information from one of twelve webcams located at intervals around the world. Each camera faces upward, capturing only the sky in each location. This creates a light gradient ring that displays the current state of the sky's light at points around the globe. When it is dawn in one screen, it is noon a few steps over, and nightfall a few steps down from that. A connection is created between the hosting site, where sun.dial is located, and the locations capturing the light of the sun. The piece is in a way a digital incarnation of the astrolabes and orreries that were the beginnings of technology's global perspective' ...
