SCRIPTING THE OTHER explores the notions of the Other and Otherness in online, performative scripting and writing. The idea is to use internet as an instrument of the Other, and antitheses to the echochamber of the self, and set up an interface towards it, as if communicating with or observing an undefined, unknown or unknowable entity, operating system, or AI. The exhibition examines text and text-visuals in meeting with an inordinant ‘Here Comes Everything’, the role and protocol of author, reader, viewer – entangled and undermined.
The exhibition is a pavilion in the third edition of The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale (Nov 1, 2017 – Jan 31, 2018), http://thewrong.org.
The exhibition is organized and curated by Noemata (Bjørn Magnhildøen, Ana Buigues). The show is part of the project Other Writing initiated by Noemata and funded by Arts Council Norway, http://kulturradet.no. Noemata is a production site for digital and netbased art, http://noemata.net, affiliated with PNEK (production network for electronic art Norway), http://pnek.org.

WHY
Art, new technology and precarity raise some issues which the leap second can exemplify and realize.
The leap second adjustment is a consequence of technology, practically immaterial, virtual, untimely – outside of time so to say – awkward, unsuitable and is a glitch or a wobble on global scale in earth’s rotation and in electronic time systems (OSs). In the same way, the festival is scalable from extremely big to extremely small, somehow mirroring the extension of technology. It’s also a metaphor for the precarity caused by technology. And it’s questioning its own existence: A leap second is an extra second between :59 and :00 that is left invisible on our watches and most computer systems. It’s usually faked using one of three glitchy processes – repeat, freeze, smear – to adjust clock-time. And finally. with its awkward, impossible format, the focus of the festival could very well be exactly that: a questioning of art and its appearance, materiality, objecthood, to tie onto traditions of conceptual and postconceptual art, net art, ao. and lead to an exploration of media in search of itself (as an ‘appearing’ form, or questioning its form). A festival or non-event like this could bring these questions to the front as its main character or theme.

click_assiSt for Shift Operations at Paleis van Mieris

_click_assiSt is an installation with cheap remote controlled mice, stickers, boxes and rubber bands. Being lo-fi +, the radio receivers in the mice often pick up interference that make them fortuitously scurry about. Made in co-operation with rad0van misovic for Shift Operations at Paleis van Mieris.

#nfcdab_2 – Lawn Enforcement

lawnEnforcement_flyer2.F

Lawn Enforcement is a section of the #nfcdab proposed and organized by BrowserBased to cheer on and partake in Dominik Podsiadly’s 2nd iteration of #nfcdab, a DIY biennale. Dominik P. is an active presence on the scene and has been a  member of BrowserBased on Facebook. But cooperations with Mr. P. also go way further than Facebook and take place IRL, too. (See: NFC biennales, Wroclaw; ADAF 2015, Athens; Yami-Ichi, Amsterdam and Bring Your Own B*, Amsterdam).

At the core of the DIY biennales are NFC and QR techs that provide and establish, as a figure of speech, access points in versatile contexts of urban settings such as vacant plots, forking paths in parks and commuter trams. The temporary as well as independent character of these biennales preserve and fertilize much valued informal channels for participating artists and audiences.

The planter signs we chose because they are just as easy to place as to take away and re-enforce an important aspect, in the #nfcdabs, of whimsy!

 

Participating:
Cem Berendsen, Dave Hagen, Domenico Dom Barra, Dominik Podsiadly, Eltons Küns, Emilie Gervais, Florian Kuhlmann, Guido Segni, Jan Robert Leegte, Jeannot GrandLapin, Jonaas Westerlund, Joubin Zargarbashi, Julianne Aguilar, Karina Palosi, Laurus Edelbacher, Maaike Stutterheim, Maarten Schuurman, Philipp Teister, Rad0van Misovic, Tibor Horvath, Tobias Rothe, Wouter Smit, Zsolt Mesterhazy.

Opening: 5 – 7pm, 17.06.2016, Wyspa Słodowa, Wroclaw.
