Strange Culture

Don't miss Lynn Hershman Leeson's shocking new film, "Strange Culture," which documents the case of artist and professor Steven Kurtz and geneticist Robert Ferrell, accused in 2004 by the U.S. Justice Department of "bioterrorism" and currently awaiting trial.

Object of Desire

I've just launched a new net art project. It's built around themes and motifs born in the mid east and med rim. I'd appreciate feedback. Object of Desire is the third chapter in World of Awe—an online travelogue (worldofawe.net) that chronicles a search for lost treasure in a parallel world called Sunset/Sunrise. The project imagines a post-gender and post-national protagonist. Born from an observation that language defines borders and territory on the Internet, Object of Desire examines thes...

Goodbye Privacy – Ars Electronica 2007

A new culture of everyday life is now upon us, bracketed by the angst-inducing scenarios of seamless surveillance and the zest we bring to staging our public personas via digital media. One in which everything seems to be public and nothing's private anymore. Panopticon or consummate individual liberty? At symposia, exhibitions, performances and interventions, the 2007 Ars Electronica Festival will delve into what the public and private spheres have come to mean and the interrelationship that no...

practices of transmuting signs

transversal web journal Transmutation is the transformation of one object into another. In alchemy, it is mostly associated with making gold. In linguistic theory, we understand it to mean a process of intersemiotic translation. For Roman Jakobson, transmutation is “a rendering of linguistic signs by means of signs from non-linguistic systems of signification.” Instead of the alchemists’ pursuit of gold, this process of transmutation involves the search for forms of articulation that go beyon...
