Hurt me plenty

Exhibition: 13th September – 1st November 2014
DAM Gallery, Berlin

7:30: Introduction by Olia Lialina, Professorin New Media at the Merz Akademie Stuttgart.

In his solo show Aram Bartholl exhibits a new series of works inspired by the questions and developments engaging humankind’s ‘entry’ into the digital realm and the role of the first person as ‘shooter’. Bartholl deconstructs stereotypes about pixel imaging with unique large-scale works that are subtly combined with a series of pieces about issues of privacy, surveillance and net neutrality. With this exhibition, Bartholl proposes a new discourse that challenges the current debates about surveillance versus the seemingly antiquated ideas and images of ‘cyberspace’.

Performance during the Preview:

BYOD – Bring Your Own Drive, and crush it.

Disused hard drives of PCs, laptops and servers imply a high security risk. DATALOVE prevents that discarded hard drives with sensible data fall into wrong hands. During the Preview of the exhibition the visitors are invited to bring their old data storage media and get them destroyed with a hardware crusher as part of Bartholl´s performance DATALOVE.

Ausstellung: 13. September – 1. November 2014
DAM Gallery, Berlin

Preview: 12. September 2014, 19 – 21 Uhr
19:30: Einführung von Olia Lialina, Professorin New Media an der Merz Akademie Stuttgart.

In der Einzelausstellung zeigt Aram Bartholl eine Reihe neuer Arbeiten inspiriert von den Fragen rund um die Entstehung von First Person Skootern und dem ‘Eintritt’ des Menschen in das Digitale. Bartholl dekonstruiert mit großformatigen Arbeiten Pixelstereotypen und kombiniert diese auf subtile Weise mit den aktuell dringenden Themenkomplex rund um Privatsphäre, Überwachung und Neutralität im Netz. Die scheinbar antiquierten Ideen und Bilder von ‘Cyberspace’ versus der aktuellen Überwachungsdebatte werden in einer Ära der digitalen Omnipräsenz neu zur Diskussion gestellt.
Performance zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung:

BYOD – Bring Your Own Drive, and crush it.

Ausgediente Festplatten von PCs, Laptops und Servern bergen ein hohes Sicherheitsrisiko. DATALOVE verhindert, dass ausrangierte Festplatten-Laufwerke mit sensiblen Daten in falsche Hände geraten. Zur Ausstellungseröffnung sind die Besucher herzlich eingeladen im Rahmen von Bartholls Arbeit DATALOVE ihre alten Datenträger mitzubringen und vor Ort mit einem Hardware-Crusher zu zerstören.

DeadDrops HackDay
June 22, 2014, Sunday, 12:00 pm – 12:00 am (save the date!)
at awesome! c-base, Rungestr. 20, Berlin (map)

We will brainstorm, discuss, hack and hang at Spree riverside with bbq and drinks!
Open to everyone, free entrance, drop by any time!

#webstreaming #IRC #beers #sun

Deaddrops started in 2010. People from all over the world have been making more than 1300 deadrops untill today! The project inspired many other DIY offline network projects and since last year after Snowden the site gained again new momentum. It is interesting how this and similar projects are perceived in a different light today. We actually need secure and alternative communication channels since we now know how bad mass surveillance on the Internet is.  You are invited to discuss all these questions with us at the DeadDrops HackDay.

The platform deaddrops.com, mobile site and apps etc were developed by a whole bunch of enthusiasts from around the world in the past 4 years. Thx everyone!! :)) Unfortunately the development of deaddrops.com came to a halt some time ago but now is the right moment to pick up and take things to the next level. You are invited to join us on June 22 at c-base to brainstorm, discuss and hack for deaddrops. I’m very open to all kind of proposals! It’s not only about USB drives, there is much more waiting out there… Let’s rock!!

Please register at deaddrops at deaddrops com and let me know your interest, skills and field of work. This would help a lot.  In the evening there will be slots to present your spinoff, project and ideas. More info and details coming soon!

thx! :)

PS: Congrats to my friends David and Matthias at Piratebox.cc for their version 1.0 release and new website! Cool!!

What is a pixel?

without comments

minecraft-pixel-worsop

Last week I gave a little workshop to a group of 9-11 year olds at my sons school in Berlin. While we were building paper craft models and painted swords from the game Minecraft I talked with the kids about pixels. Children today often look at very high resolutions screens ( ipads, tablets etc). Pixels became so small over the past 5 years that you hardly can see them with your eyes any more. This is one of the reasons why generation retina doesn t really understand the retro-pixel-look reference in Minecraft. For them pixels ARE Mincratft. :)) I showed them a bunch of old games like Boulderdash and Doom II. We talked about how 2D games became 3D  and the diffrerent perspectives like the first person view etc. It was fun! In the end they ran off with their freshly painted wodden swords to play Minecraft in the yard. ;))

FULL SCREEN
Wear art on your wrist! A group show on very big and very small screens!

‘What time is it?’ – ‘It’s art!’

FULL SCREEN celebrates the evolution of the screen in its most extreme developments. Soon screens will disappear from physical view and will be replaced by laser light projected directly into the eye’s retina. Pixels crammed into a rectangle will soon be considered history just as a medium like oil painting is history today. For this exhibition, twelve internationally renowned artists have produced screen-based artwork to be shown on the screens of 12 small smart watches and one large LED screen. Now is the time to go FULL SCREEN!

Each watch contains a single art piece. The common function of the watch has been replaced by an artwork. Visitors to the gallery are urged to ‘Wear art on your wrist!’ and try on the watches themselves. In juxtaposition with the high-resolution (320 x 320px, 275ppi) screens of the watches, a ten-meter wide low-resolution (816 x 96px, 2,54ppi) LED screen spans the wall leading into the exhibition space. This bright, massive screen will display artworks referencing each of the pieces on view on the small watch screens.

Despite the current hype about wearable devices, the latest designs of smart watches feel incredibly dated, as if digital watches of the 80’s have come back in style. The same seems true for giant LED displays that are aggressively bright but very low in resolution, as if desperately trying to seek contact with the viewer. Over the years, the prime dimensions of screens have changed from small, to big, to small again – increasingly moving closer and closer to our eyes. Most importantly, recent developments in digital screen technologies suggest an imminent extinction of the use of physical screens, bringing a sense of urgency to the important questions that the creation and use of digital screen based artworks pose. Let’s celebrate the good old screens as long as we still have them! Let’s celebrate the new retro in a time when society comes to realize its impending digital metamorphosis. ‘Excuse me, but do you have the time?’

Vincent Broquaire, Minute after minute (2014), video, 01:00 min.
Using unique hand drawn animations, Vincent Broquaire questions our viewing habits with surprising simplicity. With a few animated strokes he creates small, beautiful universes about the relationships between society, machines and technology. “The screen fills like a sand glass. But is it empty in the first place? Considering that each flowing grain of sand corresponds to a pixel, the work questions the process of appearance and disappearance of the screen and its basic states as a white screen or black screen. But what is the outcome for these small objects? Is there an entire world involved? Can a hidden technical device and a complex mechanical system join together on a mission to make the screen disappear?“

Jennifer Chan, Deep Burn (2014), video, 00:52 min.
Jennifer Chan works with video, performance, and web-based media. She deliberately creates kitschy remix videos as a form of social commentary on the topics of post-internet art and gender. “Collaging Internet pop-culture is a way to appreciate it as artifacts in a complex light, and to be critical of it by ‘acting out’ within its language. Deep Burn represents “the need to act calm in a state of constant anxiety depicted by anime eyes over inverted, time re-mappedexplosions. Sources are from the anime series Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, Tabor Robak’s Explosions (2010), and free riser sound effects by Deficio.”

Petra Cortright, buggin out (2013), video, 02:03 min.
“The videos are what first got Cortright noticed. Descended from the moving-image work of Alex Bag and Pipilotti Rist, they’re limited to about two minutes — because no one wants more than that, she reasons — and usually feature her on a webcam, displaying a guileless SoCal demeanor that has become her personal brand. In “buggin out,” a recent piece, she uses digital trickery to change the size of her eyes each time she raises and lowers a pair of sunglasses, so that they go from teensy to anime-character enormous. “It’s half very sincere,” she says, “and then, of course, it’s also a performance as well.” – NYT Magazine Nov. 2013.

Constant Dullaart, The Sleeping Sunset (2014), screengrab from http://thesleepinginternet.com, 5:00 min.
In January 2014, a picture of a sunset from an advertisement in Tiananmen Square went viral on the Internet. In the image, the sun is caught in a moment between coming and going but never setting on the huge LED screen during any time of the day. The sunset is sleeping and it is slowly breathing. Inhale. Exhale. In 2011, Dullaart created the website work thesleepinginternet.com based on the sleep mode light used on Apple computers. When viewing this page, the full website fades to black and then returns to full brightness within the cycle of a few seconds like the rising and setting of the sun. The work, The Sleeping Sunset, is a screen grab of that rising and setting website, a reflection on the desperate attempt to stop and capture the rising and setting of the light of time.

Oliver Laric, Nymph Untying Her Sandal (2013) , animated gif, 320 x 320px,
The rotating Nymph Untying Her Sandal is digital artwork from a series of 3D scans of objects from the Usher Gallery and The Collection in Lincoln. The project started in 2012, when Ashley Gallant from The Collection in Lincoln invited artist Oliver Laric to propose an idea for the Contemporary Art Society’s Annual Award for Museums. Laric’s proposal to create 3D scans of the collection and subsequently publish all data for free was chosen as the winning project.  Nymph Untying Her Sandal, Artist: Gibson, John, Period: 19th Century, Material: Stone, marble, Inscription: I Gibson ne fecit Roma, Object Number: LCNUG: 1927/142

Sara Ludy, Mist (2014), video, 60:00 min.
Sara Ludy is interested in the logic of spaces and the digital constructions of nature. In her work, she often compares physical and virtually generated nature. Mist is a one hour computer generated animation of slowly changing cloud structures. With the help of algorithms it is possible nowadays to simulate mist movement in a very naturalistic way. However, Ludy tricks the viewer. The cloud structures only seem to change shape and color in chaotic, random ways. Only after a longer study of the work, it becomes apparent that the shapes and movements are consistently symmetrical, unlike natural clouds. The mystical and calm movements promise the freedom and uniqueness of nature while the underlying truth is pure calculation.

Raquel Meyers, Aztec Ballad (2013), video, 01:44 min.,  music by Goto80
Raquel Meyers follows a very unique way to create her carpet woven like digital animations. She draws her colorful geometric tableaus ‘by hand’ in typewriter mode on a classic Commodore C64, which was a popular personal computer from the 1980′s. With a system of old software and the special character format PETSSCI (similar to ASCII), one can follow Meyers ‘live’ as she unfolds the amusing play animation of Aztec Ballad. With great speed, the cursor moves over the drawing on screen, changing and rearranging symbol by symbol. “I call it “keyboardslöjd” which means drawing/crafting by typing. It’s a mix between traditional techniques like embroidery and typewriting. Basically, you have to type everything in one go and then save it. There is no load function, no copy paste, and no undo.”

Evan Roth, http://christopher-george-latore-wallace.com (2014), website, variable
US copyright law protects the work of an artist for 70 years after their death before it is allowed to become public domain. The rapper Christopher George Latore Wallace, also known as The Notorious B.I.G. was shot in March 1997. Evan Roth’s website piece http://christopher-george-latore-wallace.com is a clock counting down the time left until The Notorious B.I.G.’s artistic work becomes public in March 2067. Only then can the DJs and musicians of the world officially play and remix his music. The existence of this website questions the highly protective copy right laws of the music industry which appear outdated when seen through the lens of the vibrant remix culture developed through the Internet – especially because the culture of remixing and sampling was first invented in rap music.

Rafaël Rozendaal, everything always everywhere.com (2013), website, variable
Rafaël Rozendaal is well known for his ongoing series of abstract, colorful websites with an intriguing combination of shape, movement, sound and interaction. With striking simplicity, the viewer’s imagination is catalyzed by the optical illusions made using basic elements of sound and color. Soon Rozendaal will reach his hundredth website. The project everything always everywhere.com is made up of progressively expanding blue gradient tones that draw the viewer’s attention towards a fixed horizon.

Paul Souviron, Sémantique du présent non exhaustif  (2014), video, 06:25  min.
The clock is ticking. Second after second. But wait, what does is say? Paul Souviron confronts us with questions of the passing of time by accumulating a wide range of symbols from various religions, secret societies, stone-cutters, internet sources and more. Some symbols seem very familiar while others are unknown. Could one be from an ancient culture? Or does is it a design for high-tech electronic parts? In his works, Paul Souviron often investigates the process of deconstruction, the unfinished and how time leaves its traces on man-made culture. In a trance-like stream of black and white lines and patterns Sémantique du présent non exhaustif  constantly poses questions in place of telling the actual time.

Addie Wagenknecht, Lasertits (2014), video, 00:36 min.
In her screen-based works, Addie Wagenknecht often combines powerful icons of viral pop-culture on the web with animated gif tableaus. In her digital collages, figures slowly accumulate. The initial image begins with the famous Super Mario clouds (originally used by artists Cory Arcangel), set against a pink background. Soon, a whole mob of animated gifs are attracted to the scene and proceed to interact and enjoying themselves. The effect is so likeable that even the attack of the space invaders will not even cause trouble for these joyful characters.

Ai Weiwei, Dumbass (2013), video, 05:13 min.
Ai Weiwei is one of the few internationally acclaimed artists who concertedly engage with the powerful outreach that the internet offers and incorporates this understanding into his own practice. In addition to his highly active twitter account with more than 260.000 followers, he recently created a couple of web based projects such as http://weiweicam.com/ or http://www.moonmoonmoonmoon.com/ which was in collaboration with artist Olafur Eliasson. In the project Dumbass, Weiwei chose to utilize another pop-culture format as a method of reaching out to a large audience.  He created a music video to talk about his period of detention by the Chinese government in 2011 when he was also banned from speaking. To date, the 5 minute clip on YouTube has more than 300.000 views.
