The Internet Is Present (Part 2)

Friday 6th may 2016 – ‚The Internet Is Present (Part 2).‘ @digital3mpire

Is the internet still present? Does it transform you? Is there any impact on our societies – and is it valuable? Should i quantify myself, and how much? Can one global reality exist and most importantly: do we, as a species, evolve?
After ‚The Internet Is Present – Part#1‘ which took place in the HUSSLEHOF Gallery in Frankfurt, now Part#2 will be in Düsseldorf.

Autopoises is Greek for self creation

A New Show is coming on 12.12.2014
„Autopoises is Greek for self creation“
with Thomas Spallek, Alexander Romey, Sebastian Schmieg und Silvio Lorusso.

03_Reifen

HOWTO denken ++++ Dekonstruktion und Rekonstruktion anhand von Algorithmen. +++ Material als Container menschlicher Vorstellungen und Projektionen +++ Auch immer gut ist die Versicherung der Identität durch Feindbilder. +++ Außerdem: Realität entsteht in unserer Vorstellung. Klar. +++ Aber wir stellen sie selber her und beeinflussen mit dieser Fiktion wieder die Realitäten anderer. +++ Dazu merken: Die Feedbackmagie des Surrealen existiert generell nur im Denken des Anderen. +++ Unausgeschöpfte Möglichkeiten sind eben auch Zusammenhänge die noch nicht hergestellt worden sind. +++ Jetzt ist alles im Interimszustand zum Nächsten, und(!) wartet auf seine Optimierung. +++ Imaginierte Zukunft. Was soll das sein in einer permanenten globalen Jetztzeit? +++ Systeme (wie Photoshop/3d/Internet), die die Grundlage neuer Medien sind, werden präzise untersucht und offenbaren dann wie sich unsere Welt und ihre Betrachtung durch die zunehmende Prozessierung von Informationen und Bildern verändert. Ja? +++ Alles ist konstruiert. Indem man aber bereits existierende Dinge verändert, wird das zugrundeliegende Konstrukt sichtbar. Manchmal. +++ Hinauf zur Hyperrealität. Los geht’s! +++ Entmenschlichung ist immer ein Thema. Leider. +++ Denn Eingriffe durch Algorithmen sind in der Metamoderne die Basis der Mystifizierung des vermeintlich Realen. +++ Selbstkreation vs. Spekulation +++ Die rhythmische Neuerschaffung des Es. +++ Ephemer entsteht … , wirklich ist dann wohl das, was nicht veränderbar ist. +++ So lange bis alles nur noch Platzhalter und Container für alles sein kann. +++ x +++ Es folgt die totale Verunsicherung im changierenden Realen.

Parallel Universes by Sebstian Schmieg

New visual piece by Sebastian Schmieg, who has been our guest in 2012. At that time we published the first Books&Blankets edition based on his ‚Search by image‘-project together with him. Now he has done a new – or better to say two new – videos based on the movie ‚Office Space‘, the proect is published in cooporation with screen saver gallery.

The 1999 Movie Office Space remade into two versions: one that does not contain any of the original dialogs, released as a screensaver through ScreenSaverGallery, and its counterpart in which everything in-between dialogs has been edited out, distributed through file sharing as an optimized version of the movie.

Parallel Universes, Optimized Version (Excerpt) – Sebastian Schmieg

“Parallel Universes” approaches narratives of efficiency and relevance deeply woven into and amplified by computational culture by looking back at a time when computers were mainly considered office appliances. It utilizes an efficiency strategy described in Douglas Coupland’s novel “Microserfs” and applies it to the Mike Judge movie “Office Space”.

Rechnender Raum by Ralf Baecker

Artist-programmer Ralf Baecker who is currently colaborating with V2 Rotterdam, has 2007 realized a work i can and will not forget, and therefore has its place in this archive-collection. Rechnender Raum (Calculating Space) is a lightweight sculpture made of sticks, strings and small weights; at the same time, it is a fully functional, logically precise neural network.

rechnender-raum-04

When the machine starts up, it tries to resolve spatial differences in its mechanical logical structure. Every attempt, however, generates new variations, capturing the machine in an infinite contemplative loop. Thanks to its strictly geometrical and intricate construction, the observer is able to track the processing logic in its entirety from any point around the machine. The visibility of the machine’s core is reinforced by the unusual distribution of its components: a nine-angled architectural body forms a torus. In contrast to the ordinary alignment of a hidden logic and an external user-facing display, here the geometric basis is turned inside out.

rechnender-raum-01

The core of the machine, with all its computational elements, is shifted outward to the surface, while the „display“ showing the results of the operations is displaced to the heart of the system. Without either depending on or requesting interaction, the machine turns away from the visitor and carries out its computations for itself alone. Continue reading…

RE∆LITIES. by Alfredo Salazar-Caro

Documentation of ∞RE∆LITIES. a solo exhibition from Alfredo Salazar-Caro.

“What is real? How do you define ‚real‘? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then ‚real‘ is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”
-Morpheus, 1999

∞RE∆LITIES explores portraiture through the scope of Virtual Reality, conjuring ideas of immortality and multiple universes. Borrowing from surrealist language, Salazar-Caro presents a new series of work consisting of sculptures prints, videos and interactive software.

guido segni – pics or it didnt happen & middlefinger response

today we got 2 pieces from Guido Segni.
1: “Pics or it didn’t happen”
is the rule 32 according to the Rules of the Internet originally written by the Internet group Anonymous.

It is a colloquial expression used by internet users to challenge their virtual interlocutor on a discussion forum or a social network, when his arguments require photographic proof of what he’s saying.
