Mobile/Immobilzed: Art, Technologies & (Dis)abilities

At the intersection of contemporary media art projects, current scientific research and technological innovations, we encounter astounding new ways in which the limits of the able and disabled body and mind are enhanced or expanded. How do such practices alter conceptions of the body, of the mind? What are the implications of these emerging practices?

Second Life Architecture Awards

The constructed architectural spaces of Second Life share a commonality with the exotic invisible cities of Italo Calvino. They are at once familiar yet completely otherworldly: inverted, fantastical, corrupted, baroque and barren, unexpected, startling and compellingly seductive. They are both our present and our future.

AER

I'd like to invite you to view an online exhibition called 'AER' at the greenmuseum, featuring artworks that look critically at the issue of air quality and use various methods to raise awareness of the issue among the public. Because air is invisible, artists are faced with the challenge of making the intangible real. Because air pollution is a silent killer, artists are challenged to give a voice to the body's dependence on clean air. Most of the featured projects blur the line between art and...

Curating Media/Net/Art

Expanding the curators' field of action - allowing them to incorporate more than the supervision, contextualisation and exhibition of artwork in museums, galleries or off spaces - is closely linked to the media-specific characteristics of art produced on the Internet. Internet Art does not necessarily have to be presented in a customary exhibition space, because as long as there is a computer with Internet access, it can be accessed anywhere any time.

Struttura “Organica” 2007

L'idea di Struttura-Organica nasce da una semplice constatazione: il mondo è un organismo vivente. In anni in cui la tecnologia avanza imponendosi sul quotidiano, gli individui cercano rifugio nella natura e riscoprono il corpo. Ma non è necessario negare la tecnologia per scoprire la natura. Al contrario sono molte e sempre più interessanti le esplorazioni delle interconnessioni tra le due sfere.

datapainting.com

Painting with data, data as input, pictures as output. Each picture is a dynamic composition which results from a program activated by a user. In programs, some parameters vary randomly or according to data suitable for the moment and the socio-technical context in which the picture generation takes place. Each picture is thus a representation in the field of possibles ones created by the code and the spectator. Each image is then an element of infinite and disordered series. http://www.d...
