Fabrica @ ARS Electronica

ce2008fassade014p.jpg

This is our last night here at ARS Electronica. This year has been particularly special because Linz is European capital of culture and the festival is celebrating its 30 year anniversary. It's been wonderful exploring the events around the city, and the new ARS Center.

Over the next few days we'll be sharing what we have seen.

Digital guests at the Creativity Festival

rinascimento04B.jpg

I read the news today.
It seems that this year we cannot miss the Creativity Festival starting
this month in Florence: the “Virtual Renaissance” will be taken to the real world.
What does it mean?
Basically, what was created in Second Life, the virtual/digital environment based
on an electronic simulation ruled by its own inhabitants will be shown and translated into a “real language”.
(Digital Impressionism, Postkitsch, New Pop, l'Avatar Art, Iperformalism, Ultranaif next to Giotto’s!)

I kept reading...
During the exposition, the first “Second life Invasion” will take place in the city.
What does it mean?
We could see the avatars walking around the streets and interact with us.

I kept reading...
The Italian government decided that the educational system in Italy will become completely digital based.
I'm sure they have no idea what it means; but they've probably thought that it sounded cool.

Out There: where Architecture meets Semiotics


What are the first things you think when I say “architecture”?
Heavy long-lasting buildings? Pyramids? Sparky skyscrapers? A thirty floor residence? The tour Eiffel?
If this is what we usually mean by “architecture”, maybe we need to change our beliefs.

As Semiotics tought me, the meaning of things is not simply an “object” (a “chair” is not only "the object that has the shape of a chair”, because a stone on the grass is actually a chair, if you sit on it!) but the consequences related to them (actions but also feelings).
In other terms, the meaning is what things REPRESENT.
Thats why the 11th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice is called “Out there: Architecture Beyond Building”.
Architecture is not just about “buildings” and “constructions” (=objects): we need to look beyond them.

Today the world is extremely dynamic, buildings cannot be something eternal anymore. What we create must be easy to develop, light, avaiable to be changed in order to our temporary needs.
Architecture is the way to create a world that

we feel like home
(Aaron Betsky)

but paradoxically, without building stable houses.
Its a way to communicate our time, our fears, our views.
Buildings dont represent this anymore.

Visual arts and performances, cinema, collage, illustrations, practices, immaginations, deconstructions, experiences, undefined shapes. Sperimentation, and not just an exposition of what already exists.

This is what I saw “Out there”.

10, 000 Peacock Feathers in Foaming Acid

This mesmerising performance was part of the opening night's events at ARS Electronica. Artists Evenlina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand used laser light to scan the surfaces of soap bubbles. The membranes of the bubbles provided an infinite landscape of refraction - resulting in the most beautiful and delicate streams of colour. Audio was created by converting the light into sound with a program by Bas van Koolwijk. Evenlina's pink fox-like costume was also very impressive.

Between The Lines

"A Jalousie (French for jealousy) is a window that one can see through but not be seen; barriers that allow us to observe the world without being invited to the table."

tehran-biennale.jpg

Humboldt, Between The Lines is an editorial project for “Urban Jealousy,” theme of the First International Roaming Biennial of Tehran and I am absolutely in love with it.

Charlton Heston RIP

"Charlton Heston, who appeared in some 100 films in his 60-year acting career but who is remembered chiefly for his monumental, jut-jawed portrayals of Moses, Ben-Hur and Michelangelo, died Saturday night at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was 84."

TOCA ME

This year's Toca Me Design Conference was held in Munich a couple of weeks ago, and our own Andy Cameron was a speaker. He came in to Fabrica afterwards and casually mentioned he had met James Paterson, Mario Klingemann, Erik Natzke, and Andreas Müller, etc. Awesome. He also had the priviledge of having his initials sculpted in foam, set in wax and melted with a heat gun. Also Awesome.

The trailer for the conference was created by Dvein, of Barcelona. Find our Andy at 1' 30''.

Africa Works

Africa Works is a new global communication campaign in favour of micro-credit developed by Fabrica, in partnership with Youssou N'Dour and Birima, his co-operative credit society in Senegal that offers financial services for SMEs, craftspeople, professionals and artists to help them start and independently develop their business.

africa-works.jpg

Youssou N'Dour, one of Africa's best-known singers and a man committed to humanitarian projects, comments: "my personal experience led me to realise that when a loan, however small, is used to develop an idea or realise a project, it is an effective way of fighting poverty. This is why everybody must understand the value of micro-credit. Africa doesn't want charity, it wants repayable subsidised loans."

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer in Venezia

This year, Mexico presents its first official national representation at the 52nd International Art Exhibition, Biennale di Venezia, with a pavilion hosting a solo show by artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer titled "Some Things Happen More Often Than All of The Time."

rafael-lozano.jpg

Chairs responding to the presence of public, people turning into radio frequencies, a sensor recording the pulse of the visitors converting it into light flashes, a human eye following your movements. The stunning and extraordinary work of this young genius is, proudly, one to the best representations of the event. Find more info here.

What Did I Do?

Last month, a University of Florida student was arrested during a forum with John Kerry while asking if he and Bush were members of the secret society Skull and Bones at Yale University.

While struggling with about -six- police officers when they tried to remove him from the session, he was Tasered and sent to jail. Police recommended charges of resisting arrest with violence, a felony, disturbing the peace and interfering with school administrative functions.

He asked for help, but most of the audience sat quietly while watching the absurd and abusive dispute.

The 64th Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica di Venezia unites works by young directors who are as yet unknown with works by the greatest film makers from around the world.

This year, the film selection has struck a rather more serious tone, including complex legal drama and a dangerous amount of melancholy with titles such as In the Valley of Elah, It’s a free world..., Atonement or The Darjeeling Limited. It will be running until September 8 and here you can find more information.

Design for the other 90% of the world

71.jpg

Priya did send me the link to this exhibition in the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in NYC:

Of the world’s total population of 6.5 billion, 5.8 billion people, or 90%, have little or no access to most of the products and services many of us take for granted; in fact, nearly half do not have regular access to food, clean water, or shelter. Design for the Other 90% explores a growing movement among designers to design low-cost solutions for this “other 90%.” Through partnerships both local and global, individuals and organizations are finding unique ways to address the basic challenges of survival and progress faced by the world’s poor and marginalized.

Mixing digital art and traditional culture

interferenze.jpg

From 3 until 5 August , San Martino Valle Caudina (Avellino), Italy

Interferenze is an international festival of sounds, new visual arts and media which breaks down the borders between the technological, urban, inorganic world and the rural, archaic, organic world. It does not, however, pursue gratuitous provocation. On the contrary, the marriage of pixel and chlorophyll, silicon and cell represents a source of fascination and a stimulus for the visitor, who will find themselves freed from the necessity of having to choose between remaining in the city - not losing contact with the future, which models itself every day in new digital vanguards - or walking along mountain paths, declining to follow the more innovative forms of human progress.Therefore Interferenze represents a new way of exploring nature and art. It offers the visitor the opportunity to explore two territories as one: the physical sphere of the forests and the virtual sphere of the digital arts in one single and total experience.

THE INFLUENCERS

The Influencers 2006 , festival of media action and radical entertainment.
The third edition of the Influencers (after the 2004 and 2005 ones), will open on July 6th at the Centre de Cultura Contempor nia of Barcelona (CCCB). Previously entitled Digital is not Analog, the festival is one of the few able to express perspectives on the edge on the (mis)use of media and how this can turn out to be extremely fun. His formula is simple: every artist presents his/her most important works and then he's confronted with the public, often establishing a discourse that intertwines with the others one in a very fruitful debate. This is possible mainly because of the physical presence of the different guests that rarely (or never) were all together in the same place. This year's lineup is rich as always, perhaps even more 'pop' oriented that in the past, including artists that have heavily played with mass media (IRWIN / Neue Slowenische Kunst, Vincenzo Sparagna, Oscar Brahim and Chicks On Speed), software manipulators / producers (Vuk Cosic and Molleindustria) and the music sample theorist Paul D. Miller / Dj Spooky. A crash course in how to get rid of the unavoidable everyday media oppression.

Neverending Cinema

neverendingcinema.jpg

Opening the 23rd of June, h 18.00
Galleria Civica di Arte Contemporanea
Trento

From June 23rd to October 1st, 2006, the exhibition spaces of the Galleria Civica will be transformed into a cinematographic set, and among the lights, videocamera and microphones, the spectators will find a place of action and production rather than of contemplation. The project, conceived by ZimmerFreiand “staged” together with Marinella Senatore, will convert the Galleria into a studio where screenplays, casting calls and story-boards will be developed; scenes will be shot and edited; post-recordings and mixes will be created… not necessarily to obtain celluloid films, but true artist videos.
Therefore, the entire initiative will have a sort of duality: on one side, various artists will publicly create films, while on the other, the Galleria will become a meeting place and experimentation space for a broader public. For a various months, the exhibition rooms will be an environment animated with common encounters, as well as spaces appointed to artistic creation, to places of exchange between citizens and the art world.

FIRST CROATIAN BIENNAL OF ILLUSTRATION
Zagreb, Until 23rd July 2006
At a time when images overload the different “scapes” that surround us, illustration discovers new fields of interventions. The exhibition brings together a group of young artists who all use illustration as one of the primary languages within their otherwise multidisciplinary practices, defining new trajectories in a continuous resampling of reality.

Curating Contemporary Art

curating_weblogo.gif

An exploration of critical and experimental approaches to curating contemporary art.

Referencing Roland Barthes’ text on writing, Le Degré zéro de l'écriture, the title of the project reflects its aim, not to define ‘curating’ but to observe practice in this field at “a sort of zero degree, pregnant with all past and future specifications”.
Curating Degree Zero was launched to research, present and discuss changes in the practice of freelance curators, artist-curators, new-media curators and curatorial collaborations. Beginning in 1998 with a three-day symposium and an ensuing publication, the project now focuses on an expanding archive about these practices, which is touring Europe as an exhibition, accompanied by a programme of live events and discussions.
The web site documents the activities of Curating Degree Zero, provides an overview and full bibliography of the archive, and reports on related exhibitions and events.

The archive is on display at the NABA in Milan from 31st May until 28th June 2006, as part of the Utopian Display Platform

CHECK- IN EUROPE Reflecting Identities in Contemporary Art

300px-European_flag.svg.png
Art Exhibition until 13th July, Munich, Germany

What does identity mean in the Europe of today? Is there such a thing as a European identity, in an age of economic globalisation and mass migration, mixing cultures and languages? What are the criteria that define the sense of belonging to a particular society or sphere?
This exhibition aims at reflecting on Identity, Globalisation and Integration presenting some selected artists from EU countries.

Martin Creed's playful world


Until June 18th, 2006 the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi presents a new project by British artist Martin Creed commissioned for the spaces of the Arengario in Piazza del Duomo in Milan.
Martin Creed’s objects, words and sounds come from everyday life. Searching for the zero degree of sculpture, the British artist uses the simplest materials to create a world in which obsessions and fantasies radically alter reality. Drawing attention to even the smallest forgotten detail of our daily lives, Martin Creed’s installations, drawings and sculptures invite the audience to look at the universe from a different point of view.

"Communication Mods" show opens in Toronto!

commmods-mark.jpg

A gallery show by our very own Mark Argo opens tonight at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.

Fabrica is pleased to announce "Communication Mods", the upcoming exhibition of one of our resident artists, Mark Argo. The exhibtion features five works that explore human-to-human communication through the process of modification. Using technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth and SMS each piece asks the audience to participate by submitting some of their personal media - music, photos and videos - using laptops and cameraphones. The end result is a snapshot of a particular community at a specific time and place though the catalog of collected media.

...

This show marks the debut of 'WhereTheHeartIs', a cameraphone-based installation created specifically for Toronto. The audience is asked to use their cameraphones to contribute iconic images of Toronto - people, places and things - to a screen in the gallery. The images are then sent to small screen which the artist wears over his heart. During the two-month exhibition, this installation will create a direct link between the artist and his home city, regardless of location. The 'HeartScreen' will be showcased in New York and Italy as parts of other exhibitions.

If you happen to be in Toronto, go check out the show!

romeposterexhibit.jpgWe reblogged the submission call for this project about two months ago (from wooster collective), and since the show is taking place in Italy, some Fabricanti participated by sending their work in. Though, they still dont' know if their work has been excepted for the show or not. Strange.

Anyway, the exhibit of posters starts this month and should last til the end of the month. The poster shown above says that the opening party is on the 13 of May from 16:00 to 1:00, costs 2 euros. Address: Via dei Reti 15 quartiere San Lorenzo.

I'll try to find the url and will post more info as it becomes available to me. But if you're in Rome, or know any more about this, please share the info in the comment section.

Far East Film Festival in Udine

LEFT_Locandina.gif The Far East Film Festival in Udine opened this past Friday (21 April) and goes on until next Saturday (29 April). This is the 8th edition of the festival and beyond the 73 film screenings, the festival also boost a rare movie poster exhibition and afternoons with actors and directors. There are also fringe activities during the week, notably some parties and concerts organized by Fabricanti Marco Mucig and Carlo Zoratti, among others.

The films in the festival are from China, Hong Kong, Japan, The Philippines, Thailand, and Taiwan.

From the program:

It is a film event which concentrates its power on three of four blockbusters a year, liberalizes cinema halls and film distribution and democratizes the showing of the individual films regardless of their provenance. Nine years after its inception, Far East has brought Oriental films to the very backwaters of Italy. Three films were released as normal under Italian law, whilst the release of three others was blocked by the Italian film distributors, or their associates—an unprecedented event at the Far East festival.

Ferment, creativity, and production: cinema in Asia is still a cinema of stars, dreams, authorship, and market, but foremost of stories to be constructed, narrated and heard. Venice, Cannes and Berlin do not present Asian films because of the organizers’ whim, still less the cosmopolitan nature of the films; but because cinema is more alive in Asia than in any other part of the world.

The Far East Film Festival has been a launching pad and first showcase for films. Pang Ho-cheung is the most recent director to make an initial impact at the festival in Udine, and subsequent success at the major film festivals.

Together with the Venice Film Festival, we decided to double the events in this region for Asian film. In April, FEFF presents revelations, war films, real cinema, popular films; and the Biannual in September provides international limelight. These are two special events which make Venice and Friuli-Venezia Giulia—with its festivals, film library, and Universities—an international venue for world cinema.

Diesel Wall Competition

The Diesel Wall Competition is on again! For those not familiar, Diesel, the clothing company, hosts this competition to select art work to be shown on their (really large) wall in Milan and Berlin. I haven't been to Berlin, but the one in Milan is rather impressive in its size. Here's a picture of what I saw there last (taken February 06):

corporate sponsored

from the competition site:


One competition. Two walls. Three winners.

After the success of the Diesel Walls in Milan and Berlin, we have decided to merge the two into one big competition... with two walls... and three winners.

This is a single competition, so only one entry per person is allowed.

The jury will select three winners. Two winners will be shown in Milan and one in Berlin.

Unlike previous competitions, we are only accepting entries in digital form, from this website.

We impose no limits on your mind however. It’s just a wall. So get over it. Go round it. Think of it. Or climb on it. Tell us what you see.

Everybody is an artist

Museum of Temporary Art (Museo d’Arte Momentanea)
From March 28th
Milano, Porta Genova

Who?
This initiative is organised by Esterni, a social and cultural project which embraces many fields such as culture, art and communication promoting public art and different ways to aggregate people.
What?
Museum of Temporary Art is a performance/event which involves anybody who is interested in taking part to a creative laboratory where you can realize any kind of artworks using different materials without following precise canons or rules. The project particularly engages students, artists, architects, gallery managers, journalists, critics. The participants will form spontaneously artistic groups and the exhibition space will change continuously according to the emergence of new projects created by their interactions.
Museum of Temporary Art represents a new approach to contemporary art which is often considered inaccessible and élitist.
I think that it could be considered a good example of Relational Aesthetics as the artworks are the result of social and individual interaction among “the artists” and their relationships make possible the artworks’ creation.
Where?
Milan, Warehouses of Porta Genova

Maximum security at Magasin3 in Stockolm


From the press release: The artist Fabrice Gygi places riots barricades at museums, hangs up bombs so that they resemble chandeliers, and makes a provisional voting booth for an undecided nation. Artist Fabrice Gygi has compared himself to a figurative painter in that he copies objects that he observes in the world around him. Gygi uses their characteristics in forms and materials but displaces their function and context. At Magasin 3, the rooms are filled with sculptures in industrial and military materials such as stainless steel, tarpaulin, and tension straps.
Gygi critiques authoritarian systems in our culture by studying everyday architecture and ordinary objects. He questions the police's preparations ahead of expected riots and our obsession with feeling secure. Fabrice Gygi was born in Switzerland in 1965. He lives and works in Geneva. The solo show at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall is his first exhibition in the Nordic countries.

Until 28 May 2006

30 years of "La Repubblica"

For all the Italians and whoever is interested.
Today "La repubblica", the newspaper that changed the journalistic approach in our country, celebrates his thirty anniversary (http://www.repubblica.it/speciale/2006/trentanni).

On January 14th, 1976 Italians first found in the newsstand a journal that on the first page declared itself "independent but not neutral".
In the middle of the crazy and hard '70s, that was a way to say something different and free.

That project started like the dream of a newspaper made by journalists and not by industries, money, editors.
In thirty years, trough all the difficult adventures and histories that this country has had, "La Repubblica" is become the second main newspaper all over Italy. Of course many things are changed in the format and in the approach. Too many.

But its story is still important, and exciting, at least till the freedom dream was really followed (look at "La sera andavamo in Via Veneto" by Eugenio Scalfari....that book is amazing!). And the newspaper is still a very good product, acoording to his time and space conditions.

This thirty-year story deserves an happy birtday. At least from people that still believe in old fashioned things such as freedom of press and power of opinions and words.

SOUTHWESTNET: TECHNO

southwest.jpg

The eighth project in SMoCA's “southwestNET” series, this exhibition highlights groundbreaking art using new technologies by Mark Amerika/ Rick Silva/ Nathaniel Wojtalik (Boulder, Colorado); David Birchfeild/ Loren Olsen (Tempe, Arizona); Natalie Jerimeijenko (La Jolla, California); Yves Amu Klein (Scottsdale, Arizona); Lucy Petrovich (Tucson, Arizona) and Tristan Shone (La Jolla, California).

To kick off the opening of the exhibition southwestNET: techno , on December 17th, 2005 , artist Rick Silva will be in Scottsdale for a 24 hour, international "blog jam" event called 24 Hour Count . Along with artistic collaborators Mark Amerika (in Sydney, Australia) and Nathaniel Wojtalik (in Boulder, Colorado), Silva will record, mix, interpret and respond to current events using technologies that include the mobile phones, digital video, mini-disk recorders, musical instruments and numerous computer software programs. As the artists record images, sounds and other information, they will send their findings in the form of digital messages and files back and forth to one another, continually mixing sound, images and text, like DJs. Hour by hour their mixes will be uploaded onto a blog, which will document live their intercontinental "jam session."

Founded in 1999, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art [SMoCA] is the only museum in Arizona devoted to the art, architecture and design of our time. Global in its focus, the Museum is a unique and vital cultural resource for the Southwest, serving local audiences as well as visitors from throughout the United States and abroad. Designed by award-winning architect Will Bruder, SMoCA's minimalist building (an ingenious renovation of a former movie theater) has five galleries for showcasing changing exhibitions and works from the Museum's growing permanent collection.
