    from The Renaissance Society Added 358 1 0

    May 29, 2011 Bill Brown is the Karla Scherer Distinguished Service Professor in American Culture, Department of English, Department of Visual Arts, and Committee on the History of Culture, at the University of Chicago. This walk-through and discussion of O'Brien's exhibition will be led by Professor Bill Brown. Brown has an incredible range of scholarly interests, from popular literary genres revolving around baseball and kung fu to more rarified heights entailing close literary analysis of such figures as Henry James, Virginia Woolf, and Theodore Dreiser. Over the past decade, Brown has steadily taken up what he refers to as "object relations in the expanded field," a set of concerns better known as Thing Theory. The author of numerous articles, his most recent book is A Sense of Things: The Object Matter of American Literature."

      • The Limits of an Object: Michael Sailstorfer


        from Vera List Center Added 272 2 0

        This fall, the Public Art Fund Talks at The New School examine the transformative potential of sculpture and its ability to reach beyond the material presence of an object’s physical form. Inspired by the influence of an earlier conceptual art legacy on contemporary sculptural practice, this series examines how the limits of an object might be redefined both literally and metaphorically in the public realm. Kicking off the series, artist Michael Sailstorfer explores the topic in relation to past works as well as his new large-scale sculpture Tornado. Opening on September 20, Tornado physically transforms some 200 truck inner tube tires into dark “clouds” that swirl above visitors passing through Doris C. Freedman Plaza. The sculpture also mines themes that permeate Sailstorfer’s practice, primarily the use of found materials to create “transformation machines” that expand the space and presence of an object beyond what meets the eye. * * * Through the artistic transformation of everyday objects and situations, Michael Sailstorfer creates artworks dealing with the states of euphoria to disintegration. Absurdity and comedy play as important a part in his work as does the question of the space a sculpture can occupy. He works with an enormous range of different functional objects and materials — from lampposts to helicopters, cars and caravans, to the forest floor — transforming them into engrossingly disparate sculptures characterized by charm and wit. Born in 1979 in Velden/Vils, Germany, Sailstorfer lives and works in Berlin. He received his MFA from Goldsmiths College, London, and has studied in residencies in Oslo and Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited in Berlin, Oxford, Sao Paulo, Paris, Milan and Rochester, New York, among other cities. * Presented on occasion of the Vera List Center’s 2011-2013 focus theme “Thingness.”

            • “it will feel motivation and purpose of his life”


              from Darko Stojkov Added 35 0 0

              -is experimental film that was made with artist Alexandar Joksimovic. Film is an idea to move boundaries between artist and the one that is watching- viewer. Performs was made in which me and some of my friends played with some object( junk) and tried to make animation using cameras or other technology and whole scene was projected on the wall and recorded in same time. In one moment the viewers came to the table and start playing with objects because the thing that we were doing was nothing special and they felt that anyone cane do it. So the artist in one moment moved beck and switch place with viewer and viewer became artist. Film was made after from the material that was recorded.

                • Turbulence.org Commission: "besides, moved by some thing." by Annie Abrahams, Martina Ruhsam (2015)


                  from Turbulence.org Added

                  This video was derived from a screen-capture of "besides, moved by some thing." performed in real-time on June 12, 2015 1:00 - 1:50 pm EDT. Project: http://turbulence.org/commissions/besides "When facing death or illness all the accumulated knowledge surrounding these issues is displaced by experiences that can hardly be shared. Can liminal experiences be communicated verbally? Annie and Martina prepared for this meeting individually, and agreed upon only one rule: the performance will be over when both of their screens are black for more than a minute." With "besides," Annie and Martina investigated the performative potential of real time computer-mediated communication. By listening to each other's gestures (in a visual and acoustic sense) they choreographed each other's actions, despite Annie being in Montpellier, France and Martina in Berlin, Germany. Were they be able to create an intimate space within two webcam windows framed side-by-side on their screens? What emerged when their bodies, silences, fragmented communication, a few mundane objects, and a lot of uncertainty collided?

                    from Metanexus Institute Added 659 0 0

                    Basarab Nicolescu: "The Idea of Levels of Reality and its Relevance for Non-Reduction and Personhood" The transdisciplinary notion of levels of Reality is incompatible with reduction of the spiritual level to the psychical level, of the psychical level to the biological level, and of the biological level to the physical level. Still these four levels are united through the Hidden Third, which however can not be captured in a theory. The transdisciplinary notion of levels of Reality leads to a new vision of Personhood, based upon the inclusion of the Hidden Third. 2008 July 14
