YOUR ART!! Party at F.A.T. GOLD at Eyebeam

without comments

YOUR ART!! party at Eyenbeam last Saturday was super cool!! As part of the F.A.T. GOLD program visitors were invited to build a golden necklace to show art from their phones.  The concept is based on an intervention I did with Khoi Vinh during the Seven on Seven conference at Rhizome 2012.  More documentation about the F.A.T. GOLD exhibition at Eyebeam to come.

How To Avoid Facial Recognition

without comments

or ‘YOU GOTTA FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PAAARTY (ANONYMOUSLY!!)

This is not a hoax! It really works! But you ll need some extra training for your neck muscles ;) Don’t be worried about party pictures any more. Just keep your head tilted when ever a friend pulls a camera or you travel to the UK. You’ll be safe! In case you are not an expert in software like Kyle’s ofxFaceTracker you can also test this just with your phone or camera. Facial recognition is default nowadays (especially on all the Faceboogles….)!!

How To Turn Code Into Art

without comments

[1st published on fffffat]

Art aware hackers!! Your code can be art! Yes, no kidding!! Just follow the super easy tutorial below and make art today!!

Recent events have shown again that computer code and its power is still underestimated by the public and governments. The way software is written, it s quality, openess, closedness etc. has a very high impact on which way society is taking.  Some small changes or features in code can result in an enormous loss of democratic values or lead to a hidden surveillance state.  Because comparably only few people can read and understand code it is so important we communicate it, discuss it in public and make it art! :)

Congrats to the CCC for revealing and revers engeneering this incredible piece of software and to FAZ (a leading german news paper, circulation of 360.000) which went of the charts by printing 5 full pages assembler code. Awesome!

BOINGBOING: Chaos Computer Club cracks Germany’s illegal government malware, a trojan that spies on your PC and lets anyone off the street hijack it

Germany’s Chaos Computer Club published the sourcecode for a piece of malware used by the German government to spy on citizens. The software was discovered in the wild and reverse engineered. It can be used to spy on or control remote PCs. Because of flaws in the software, anyone who was infected with this by German police was vulnerable to spying by “anyone on the street.” The German supreme court banned the use of trojans to spy on German citizens in 2008. ….

The Legendary Night at Roter Krebs 2010

without comments

[1st released on fffff.at]

Last year I curated the program for the category Digital Communities at Ars Electronica 2010. The whole thing was called TELE-INTERNET and a mix of talks, workshops, lab, hacker space and performances. We also had a night program at Roter Krebs (which is definately the best party place in Linz!!). Looking back this night was very special and became one of my personal highlights in F.A.T. history !! (…besides the TM fake G-car :) Finally I managed to get it documented! Enjoy!!

How to make your own MOMA artist pass

without comments

[first released on F.A.T. , don't miss the comments there...]

1. Download your pass here.
2. Print it on heavy paper, both sides.
3. Insert your name with a pen.
4. Visit MOMA a whole year for free!

You are only eligible to obtain an MOMA artist annual pass (25,-$) (regular entrance fee 20,- $ !!!) if you can proof  that you had ‘OFF-LINE’ !!!  art shows. Can you believe that? Online art doesn’t count in?!? We need to change that.

The making of the Free MOMA pass:

Let’s scan this!

It seems I am artist number #7156 which got an artist pass. (This year? Since the system was implemented? Doesn t matter in fact.) The  entrance guard will just scan the code and look at the read out if the pass is valid. Code format is CODE_39. Ok nice!

Let’s scan the whole thing in high res!

We better generate that magic code A000000000007156 again at Online Barcode Generator for better print quality  :-) You might wanna also just become the artist pass owner #7155 in case they kick Aram Bartholl out of the DB for some reason. ;-)

Done! I recommend the Andy Warhol: Motion Pictures show on 5th floor. Awesome! Let’s meet for a make out flashmob in that ‘exhibtion’ cinema ;-)
[You might also just go to Free Friday Nights, held every Friday evening from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m :-)]

Streetview Germany

without comments

I can’t believe this! Germany entered the scene on the digital globe today! Congrats! Google Streetview is finally life! Although it seems Google had some trouble keeping the good quality. Many images are blurred or even black, strange – how come? ;-) ….. Oh! whats that?!? Look what I found!!! F.A.T. patrol is on Steetview OMG! yes true, I heard they tagged the car with a GPS last February … what?!? They even hijacked it?!?! (http://fffff.at/google-street-view-car/don t miss the video) …

Update:

OMG! It seems that Google for one day even considered to run Streetview in Germany as a paid premium service … it would make sense! They spend so much extra money on ‘post production’ ;-)

The Streetview page was blocked and the text says something like ‘Due to the high effort in picture editing Google Germany has decided to run  Google Streetview as a paid premium service….”  The page was up for only one day and for some strange reason they list themselves now as a phising attack ?!? see yourself http://goo.gl/Nk9Ca . Probably trying to blame someone else ;-)
