    On XCurrencies. A Performance Project

    Klaus Spiess and Lucie Strecker / Austria-Germany
    Medical University Vienna
    The aim of our research is to develop artworks that are informationally ‘grown’ for the art-market to become part of an ecological economics. In our performance/installation 'Hare’s Blood +' we designed a gene to allow the audience to speculate on artworks that incorporate animal relics in the light of a counter-economy as envisioned by Joseph Beuys. We opened one of the multiples in which Beuys had shrink- wrapped hare’s blood. We then isolated the catalase gene from the blood which protects against aging and spliced it into living yeast cells. We then programmed an interface able to activate the synthetic gene. The transgenic Beuysian creature was then put up for auction to act as an ‘eco-political agent,’ whose life would now be governed by the commercial interests of the auction attendees. We currently assign economic systems to cellular processes with expanded xDNA alphabet. We use systems biology to program logic operations interfacing between the living artwork and the art consumers. Artworks thus become inalienable objects between artists and consumers who both are in a state of reciprocal dependence that establishes a qualitative relationship between the three transactors.

    Ruido, live cinema with live sountrack

    Luis Angel Castro, Esteban Betancur COLECTIVO CICLUX / Colombia
    ITM - U de A
    Using old and recycled technologies side by side with new ones, RUIDO will born as the story of a city, in this case Medellin… some old photos, handcrafted projectors and the a lot of NOISE around us, around you, around everybody. CICLUX will make a live cinema performance with eighteen people moving around, improvising, building a film brick by brick; the piece will be unique and the act can be a audiovisual experience full of movement mixed with the environment. We design our own software and hardware to bring this realtime film always new to you. In our cities we are all surrounded by RUIDO (noise), and we will show using old and new technologies how this RUIDO has become an stellar character in our daily show. We will video map using a lot of deferents technologies creating a live cinema act that will show to the public the story of every city… We have made our own projectors, our own software and the piece will be made brick by brick by the hand of eighteen people just in front of your eyes.

    En la mayoría de los sistemas de gobernanza, las políticas públicas buscan impulsar la sectorización para medir el crecimiento del país. El éxito de los planes estratégicos de los gobiernos se encuentra determinado por la estratificación en sectores productivos sesgados que se alejan de una concepción holística de la experiencia humana. La tendencia a generar acciones de exclusión y selección privilegiada a partir de una definición sectorial impuesta, crea espacios de opacidad que impiden la emergencia de experiencias que propongan nuevas lógicas de organización desde la combinación insospechada de lo transdiciplinar. El diseño estratégico emerge en las instituciones para, desde el uso de nuevas tecnologías y el nuevo valor de la publicidad, hacer emerger una experimentación que aporta a la superación de brechas como la desconfianza a las instituciones. La investigación aborda dos ejercicios de co-diseño, transdiciplinariedad y cultura digital, enfrentado por un grupo transdiciplinar de creativos de la Universidad de Playa Ancha en Valparaíso, Chile. Creando una analogía al viaje de Alicia a través del Espejo de Lewis Carroll, se aborda el contacto con la disfuncionalidad de los sistemas impuestos por jerarquías, incapaces de flexibilizar la estructura frente al movimiento y las necesidades de la transversalidad.

    Leviathan

    Emilio Ocelotl, Jessica Rodriguez and Alejandro Brianza / Mexico-Argentina
    Andamio
    www.andamio.in
    Leviathan is an interactive musical system still under development and experimentation that links musical and visual creation resulting in a live electronics piece for Paetzold recorder with live visuals. Leviathan attends performance interactivity but also the historically shaped relationships between the agents involved: composers, performers and computer. The specific indications for Leviathan are a series of indications directly related to the supercollider code control routines. The indications suggest to the performer many actions to change between fixed and variable states interacting with the live electronics. This project works with two elements: real time and fixed time, exploring de differences and similarities between them through three dimensions: technical, musical and conceptual. From a technical point of view, this project is working with a system called “Machine listening”, so the piece can generate itself taking as inputs the sound events from the Paetzold recorder. The same happens with the visuals, there is a video generated in real time, which is mixed and processed with many different effects constructing a very special audiovisual context.

    WanderingScapes

    WanderingScapes is an audiovisual performance about journeys on nature. It is wandering on different scapes such as landscape, cityscape, townscape, roofscape; riverscape, seascape, waterscape, snowscape… It is going into field trips as nature immersions and bringing back a miscellaneous of videos and sounds. This audiovisual performance is the outcome of the lived experience in different environments. It is glitched, rusted, noised as the experience cannot be (re)lived. It is just performed with simple body movements, instruments and objects created by us.

    Sound Dialogues

    Universidad Nacional de Córdoba
    abctrio.blogspot.com.ar
    En esta muestra, hemos realizado una clara división entre la producción de música instrumental académica y las experiencias de arte sonoro con las nuevas tecnologías que está presente en nuestras universidades. Creemos que un diálogo es una oportunidad para superar esta situación que lleva tantos años. Para reducir la división, proponemos un espacio interdisciplinario que reúne a artistas sonoros de diversos orígenes académicos, instrumentistas, improvisadores y compositores. Además de aquellos que entran en los campos de programación de software, sistemas interactivos, detección y gestión de bases de datos. Proponemos un proyecto que articule un taller y una presentación artística. De esta manera, haremos puentes entre diversos tipos de conocimiento y formas de realizar el arte sonoro para ser interdisciplinario, interactivo e inclusivo.

    Whose Weather is it Anyway?

    ‘Whose Weather is it Anyway’ is part of a series of interventions that seeks to decipher, expose and contrast informational patterns that exist in natural ecosystems and that of man-made informational representations of command, control and dissemination mediated by its infrastructural aspects. Amidst narratives and decisions surrounding recreational tourism, festivities, food, livelihood, calamities and stock prices to which weather conditions are central, lies the colonization of local and global weather information into an intellectual property regime that often makes weather reporting and predictions through opaque informational conglomerates that fuel climate change debates and environmental policy. This project explores the interplay between ‘the climate of economies’ & ‘the economies of climate’ in the age of networked Big Data, critically examining these interfaces while engaging the audience using emerging methods in data sonification and networked media art practices.
