    “Commons Tense” exhibits the works of new media artists from Turkey. Being a
    sub-theme of amberPlatform’s 2012 theme entitled “Paratactic Commons”. Commons
    Tense points out that it is now time to talk within a new category that embeds the
    Commons in.
    The decade that followed 9/11 witnessed a radical regression of communal energies,
    forcing us to live strictly in individual spheres; the fear and control society in the
    guise of a war on terror, the tendency of nation-states to impose their ideological
    agendas onto everyone and everything under their control and the conflicts and
    collaborations of a global consumerist economy that urges the rapid privatization of
    public goods have all taken a toll on the common values of human societies around
    the Globe. The commons that we need to regain entail a broad spectrum. They range
    from ecological unbalances, which result from the privatization of natural resources,
    to the ‘de facto’ privatization of judicial systems, which has led to the degradation
    of a justice that is common to all.
    Meanwhile, the ever-popularizing digital media, beginning with the Internet itself
    as a common resource, has been a major source of inspiration in revitalizing the
    idea of the commons. More specifically, the capacities oered by new media have
    helped to re-understand that information is a “common” as well as the right to
    access information.
    Can digital commons be an alternative platform to launch a political thought whose
    main aim is sharing, transparency, and freedom to access information? What can
    we learn from free software’s, copyleft movements, peer-2-peer systems, the logic of
    open source, and creative commons? Could the digital-commons help for the creation
    of another form of economy and ecology? Could humans share their common
    resources rather than exploit them? What kind of paratactic artistic strategies could
    digital commons consist of?
    Realized in collaboration with TodaysArt Festival in Den Haag and Academy of Fine
    Arts Saar in Saarbrücken the artworkspresented at the exhibition will oer various
    interpretations of the theme. Theco-events, which consist of two workshops and
    artist’s presentations will be held in the week before the exhibition. One of the
    workshops focuses on building Arduino Boards, an  open-source, easy-to use
    hardware and software electronics platform for artist and designers.In the second
    workshop participants will experiment with Arduino Boards using python and
    processing programming languages.

  2. video and sound design by Candaş Şişman

    A Short Animation Inspired by the Works of İlhan Koman
    İlhan Koman’s unique design approach in his form studies also inspires contemporary art works. The video installation Flux by young artist Candaş Şişman can be defined as a digital animation which is inspired from the structural features of some of İlhan Koman’s works like Pi, 3D Moebius, Whirlpool and To Infinity... A red circle, which is colored in reference to the red radiators of Ogre, is traced in a morphological transformation which re-interprets the formal approach of Koman’s works. The continuous movement sometimes connotes the formal characteristics of Pi, 3D Moebius, Whirlpool and To Infinity..., as well as the original formal interpretations of the design principles of the works . In Flux, Koman’s design process in the making of the Pi series has been treated as the emerging of a sphere from a two-dimensional circle by the principle of increasing the surface; and that simple direction is re-interpreted in digital medium. Thanks to this, in the digital animation an entirely different form serial that does not resemble Pi yet remaining its design principle can be followed through the flow of a circle to the sphere. As a conscious attitude of the artist, this work is not designed in a direct visual analogy with Koman’s works. During the animation, none of the moments of the transforming form look like Pi or 3D Moebius, however the subjective reading of Koman’s approach can be observed.
    With the integration of the sounds of various materials – which Koman used in his sculptures – Flux turns into an impressive spatial experience. Flux, also exemplifies that Koman’s work can be re-interpreted by the analysis and manipulation of form in the digital medium.
