BIO
Pat Badani's intermedia works explore social space and connectivity across several media platforms. She creates communicational spaces to investigate personal and collective territorial boundaries and aspects of globalization such as migration, nomadism, translocal identities and language convergence. She is also interested in the migration of images-in-motion brought about by electronic mediation where images migrate from every-day public spaces to video-screening rooms, to exhibition-spaces, and to Web-spaces. 



Her projects have been discussed and shown in numerous international New Media Festivals and Symposia, as well as in Museums, Contemporary Art Centers and galleries in Canada, the USA, Europe and Latin America. Some of these venues include ISEA (United Arab Emirates, Australia, Turkey, Ireland & France); FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL DE LA IMAGEN (Colombia); VideoAKT International Biennial (Spain); FILE (Brazil); NEW FORMS FESTIVAL (Canada); MECAD Media Center (Spain); ESPACIO FUNDACION TELEFONICA (Argentina); MEDI@TERRA (Greece); MUSEO DE ARTE MODERNO (Mexico); MUSEO DE MONTERREY (Mexico); CANADIAN CULTURAL CENTER (Paris, France); MUSEE DE BAS ST. LAURENT (Canada); HEXAGRAM RESEARCH INSTITUTE (Canada); and FRAC (Corsica, France); to name a few.

Mestizo Technology: Art, Design and Technoscience in Latin America

DESCRIPTION
Using the term “Mestizaje” as a lens to understanding Latin American culture, this thematic Spring 2016 issue of Media-N seeks to explore how electronic technologies are used in art and design practices within the context of Latin America – a diverse cultural and geopolitical region that embraces countries that stretch from the southern border of the United States of America to the southernmost tip of South America, including the Caribbean.

“Mestizaje” is a Spanish term broadly used to denote the hybridization of identities in Latin America. As a theme, numerous cultural producers have addressed it in one form or another, due to the nature of colonization in Latin America and the extensive and sometimes forceful cultural mixing that ensued. Today, the term “Mestizaje” not only refers to a process manifested in the blending of multiple subjectivities that involve ancestry, race, and language, but also the recognition of the plurality of intercultural mixtures and modern forms of hybridization beyond identity politics to cultural forms of technological art and design.

With the above in mind, Mestizo Technology: Art, Design and Tecnoscience in Latin America seeks submissions that consider the dynamics of “Mestizaje” in art and design; essays and artworks that conceptualize the development of unique technological practices in Latin America. Some of our questions are: How is technology embodied, transformed, assimilated and appropriated in Latin American art and design? What are the characters that mark technoscience in Latin American art and design practices? What are the roles of Latin American traditions and scientific knowledge in the production of digital media art, and what are the influences of Western scientific rationale and technical expertise? And, how is Latin American technology-based art influencing artistic production in the West?

Mestizo Technology: Art, Design, and Technoscience in Latin America will investigate how technology functions within the everyday contradictions of local and global political, economical, social, and cultural relations in Latin America. Moreover, we are interested in submissions that survey how influences have been appropriated and adapted to the particular needs, resources and interests of Latin American thinkers and makers who question hegemonic histories of power.

Hence, the call for submission addresses how Latin American artists, designers, architects, educators, museums, and other organizations are delineating an aesthetic that acknowledges Latin America's place within a global modernity full of unexpected and involuntary encounters, dialogues, and confrontations. We seek contributions that examine the methodologies, theories, histories, and pedagogies that arise when producing, teaching and making technology-based art in the context of Latin America. And, we welcome proposals that discuss original research and artworks from a broad range of technology-based areas that explore how these productions challenge the traditional dichotomies of craft/technology, western/indigenous, modern/traditional, global/local, developed/developing, big-science/small-science, high/low, and theory/practice.

Media-N is an English language journal, and all submissions must be received in English adhering to the standards set by the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.

Media-N, Journal of the New Media Caucus is pleased to announce the launch of our spring 2015 online and print edition.
V:11 - N.01
THE AESTHETICS OF ERASURE
Pat Badani
Editor-in-Chief

-Co-guest editors Paul Benzon and Sarah Sweeney take up challenging questions related to the aesthetics of erasure today in the digital era. They investigate new meanings and the relevance of said practice within twenty-first century contemporary contexts typically defined by digital knowledge production, preservation, and sharing.
-With a number of tantalizing questions in mind, the guest editors have assembled texts and visual essays by fourteen authors: Joshua Craze; Seth Ellis; Kaja Marczewska; Justin Berry; David Gyscek; Derek Beaulieu; Amaranth Borsuk, Jesper Juul, and Nick Montfort; Torsa Ghosal; William Basinski; Ella Klik and Diana Kamin; and Matthew Schilleman. Their contributions give expression to five sites of inquiry mapped by the editors within the expansive practice of erasure – Power, Capital, Signal and Noise, Technology and Archive – a topography in which issues of technology and materiality are explored.
