Coding after Lovelace
2 day audio visual festival in Brooklyn NY featuring art, music and installations, looks great with some great artists there (such as rosa-menkman, rottytooth, Raquel Meyers (who with Goto80 do the text-mode tumblr) and nullsleep) … wish I could go:
lWlVl (“low-level”) Festival is a coming together of disparate talents, working in similar asthetics, the retro means and methods repurposed into future art.

We live in this space partially ignoring the “others”, mediated by interfaces and intuitive actions, passing between Backdoors or Zero-day attacks like we are unable to recognize the complex dynamic of the entire Internet thanks to our “friendly” vision of the surface network. As a curator, I take the risk of bringing to the dark side of Internet – the Tor Network, a collection that exemplifies the influence and sensitivity of 16 artists around the interface’s concept into a place where the design of a enjoyable website is not the main thing, is all about information, data and how you can protected. From the inspiring and famous social network’s interfaces to mobile devices the artists shows us what they see as Beautiful Interfaces while the art makes its way to the deep.

Open the index.html in your regular browser (better with Chrome). 2. Read the information at the end of the index and access the list of artists “Click on the big B” 3. There are 15 artists who remix what they see, love and work in the surface network. They bring art in to the dark net. 4. pls enjoy!

Hackathon installation Transmediale 2014. “In every Transmediale festival shit just get wacked. Stuff is used so often so damn much people don’t even know what’s going on.” This year I my participation in Transmdiale took place via the Art Hack Day; a 48 hours (but in reality more like 24 hours) hackathon in which a selected group of artists and programmers set out to create all the works that will later be featured in the main exhibition. I proposed a couple of works but finally I made “In the Highest in the Best: Welcome To Post Digital Afterglow”. The work is a Transmediale B/Lingo. consists of 6 bingo cards that expose the (evolving) vernaculars of the Transmediale website between 2009-2014. The keywords are derived from scraping and subsequently frequency organizing its terms. On the floor lies the interpretation of this years (2014) three most used keywords: post, digital and afterglow.
LUNAR STORM BY ROSA MENKMAN 4’15” COLOUR The surface of the Moon seems static. Though it orbits the Earth every 27.3 days, with areas of it becoming invisible during this rotation, it is always (visibly or invisibly) above us, reassuringly familiar. The Moon is the best known celestial body in the sky and the only one besides the Earth that humans have ever set foot on. The Seas of the Moon (Lunar Maria), consisting not of water but of volcanic dust and impact craters, appear motionless to the naked eye. Here, volcanic dust forms a thick blanket of less reflec- tive, disintegrated micro particles. But on rare occasions, beyond the gorges of these Lunar Maria, and only when the lunar termi- nator passes (the division between the dark and the light side of the moon) a mysterious glow appears. This obscure phenomenon, also known as lunar horizon glow, is hardly ever seen from Earth. Beyond the gorges of the Lunar Maria, the Moon is covered with lunar dust, a remnant of lunar rock. Pummelled by meteors and bombarded by interstellar, charged atomic particles, the molecules of these shattered rocks contain dangling bonds and unsatisfied electric connections. At dawn, when the first sunlight is about to illuminate the Moon, the energy inherent to solar ultraviolet and X-ray radiation bumps electrons out of the unstable lunar dust; the opposite process occurs at dusk (lunar sunset). These electrostatic changes cause lunar storms directly on the lunar terminator that levitate lunar dust into the otherwise static exosphere of the Moon and result in ‘glowing dust fountains’. —— Vertical Cinema is a series of ten newly commissioned large-scale, site-specific works by internationally renowned experimental filmmakers and audiovisual artists, which will be presented on 35 mm celluloid and projected vertically with a custom-built projector in vertical cinemascope. It is a 90-minute programme made solely for projection on a monumental vertical screen that was upended on Saturday, 12 October 2013, at 9 pm, in Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche at the Kontraste Festival.
Desktop BAM is a performance piece entailing controlling a mouse cursor to play on desktops. It’s a direct homage to turntablism, born from using turntables in unconventional ways. The title BAM is taken from Afrika Bambaataa, a pioneer of early hip hop. The dynamism of the piece is created by the mouse cursor, which moves faster and more accurately than is possible by mere humans. The movements trigger the audience’s physicality, while at the same time suggesting “the physicality of computers” controlled by humans.
