1. VIDEO CALL-OUT: hashtag activism


    from Carielyn Added 39 1 0

    can a hashtag change the world? can it unite people under an ideological banner, take collective thought and turn it into “collective action”? from the huge amount of various campaigns that vie for our attention everyday, it seems like we’re already sold on the idea. but is hashtag activism engaging our social, cultural and political agency? or is it just making us feel better about our place in the world, by helping us feel we’ve made a difference with a like, share or follow?

      • Distributed Self


        from Daniel Pinheiro Added

        'Every element can be always accessed on its own' - Lev Manovich DISTRIBUTED SELF (2015) - 12'41'' (Loop) The piece is the first, as such, part of an ongoing research on translating digital presence/agency while in the real of Internet culture. Taking on McLuhans words - The Medium is the Message - this work follows the structure of the philosophy behind every new media (art) object. It's independent, fractured and multiple existence. Our 'selves' are multiplied and fractured, divided, randomly assorted by others and by ourselves at the same time. Every present moment is shared into the past, each frame is a translation of a refresh that just happened, every movement is captured into a new disruption of the whole... The process: Each frame updates a random line of pixels taken from the webcam inout through a Processing sketch. Each frame is stored/saved digitally. 12'49'' minutes / 24300 jpegs - frames The sound: Running through a processing sketch the sound loops, from all different sources until it is completed. 'Distributed Self' (vocals) - Daniel Pinheiro 'Rear View Mirror Pattern' - David Newfeld* - "Marshall McLuhan 'The Medium is the Message'" (1993) 'Thick Ideas' - David Newfeld - "Marshall McLuhan 'The Medium is the Message'" (1993) 'Dido's Lament' - Henry Purcell - "Dido and Aeneas" *http://davidnewfeld.com/2014/05/14/davidnewfeld-com/

          • Trust, Representation and Use of Storytelling in Online Scams by Andreas Zingerle


            from ELMCIP Added 14 1 0

            The Program in Digital Culture, the Digital Culture Research Group and the Bergen Electronic Literature Research Group at the University of Bergen and the Bergen Public Library present: Andreas Zingerle on Art and Spam Austrian artist and scholar Andreas Zingerle, from the University of Linz in Austria, visited Digital Culture at the University of Bergen on an Erasmus teacher exchange on February 16, 2015. Zingerle gave a lecture about creative activism and creating art in collaboration with spam. Zingerle writes: My work focuses on human computer and computer mediated human-human interaction with a special interest in transmedia and interactive storytelling. Since 2010 I collaborate with Linda Kronman as the artist group 'kairus.org'. We have worked with the thematic of internet fraud and online scams, constantly shifting our focus and therefore approaching the theme from a number of perspectives like: data security, ethics of vigilante communities, narratives of scam e-mails, scam & technologies. Research subjects are online scammers, vigilante communities of scambaiters and their use of storytelling and technology. The practice based research is closely intertwined with the artistic production. We adopt methodologies, used by anthropologists and sociologist, therefore our artworks are often informed by archival research (scambaiter forums, archives of fake websites and scam e-mail correspondence), content analysis (narratives of correspondences between scambaiters and scammers), participation observations (self exploration of scambaiting tactics, ‘419 fiction’ workshops) and field research (artist in residence program in Ghana). Besides the artworks we publish academic research papers related to our projects and through workshops we contextualize our quite focused research topics of the artworks to wider discourses like data privacy, activism and hacking culture, ethics of vigilante online communities and disruptive art practices. In our workshops we also explore how scambaiting skills and tools can be used more generally in media competence trainings or in production of disruptive digital fiction. Andreas Zingerle is a media artist from Innsbruck, Austria. He is a PhD candidate at the Timebased and Interactive Media Department in Linz (Austria). He is researching scambaiting strategies and implements their mechanics in interactive narratives and media competence trainings. In the last years he worked on several installations exploring a creative misuse of technology and alternative ways of Human Computer Interaction. Since 2004 he takes part in international conferences and exhibitions, among others Ars Electronica Campus, Siggraph, Japan Media Arts Festival, File, WRO Biennale. + info: http://elmcip.net/node/10134
