Konfiguration No8 at KM Temporaer – Berlin

Die Konfiguration No 8 is part of the exhibition ‘reflecting on networks / artistic strategies using the web‘ at km temporaer in Berlin between 19.10.20120 and 11.11.2012.

Konfiguration No8 is based on www.spectaculartakeoverbattle.de and consists of 16 similar, numbered and handsigned prints, which are positioned as 4 x 4 on the wall. The single elements make a big complete tableau of Images which will transform during the exhibition ‚reflecting on networks / artistic strategies using the web‘ by the collaboration of the audience.

At the end of the exhibition will be a new piece.

The rules of collaboration

Each of the 16 Pictures are available for sale separately. The price of the individual parts doubles after one piece is sold. When a picture is sold it is taken out of the frame leaving a blank white space with a handsigned number showing the value of the sold one.
Furthermore the artbuyer gets his paid money back when the next part is sold.

When the exhibition is finished there will be a new artpiece produced by the logic and rules of the market.

Buying a part of the ‚Konfiguration No 8‘ is only possible during the exhibition ‚reflecting on networks / artistic strategies using the web‘ between 19.10.2012 and 11.11.2012.

GameArt Book: Everything I shoot is art

everythingishootisart

The Swedish journalist and web editor Mathias Jansson put together a book about game art. Most of the contents are interviews with people, who are deep into the art and creation of making games, like Jonatan Söderström “Cactus”, Jeroen D. Stout or Krystian Majewski. This makes it a very valuable and insightful resource on games, game art and mutlimedia arts in general. The book is called “Everything I shoot is art“. The book is freely available on the web and can also be bought as paperback edition. (via Next Level)

Before this book Mathias released another 500+ pages book about a silmilar topic called “Insert Art to Play”. This book was also available for free on the web, but is currently offline, because this book should be released as paperback.

TRAUMA Special Edition Unboxing

I’m finally back from Poland and I finally received my copy of the Special Edition of TRAUMA – the physical copy of my very own game. I could not resist to make an unboxing video:

Needless to say, I’m pretty floored by the result. I designed every bit of the packaging and the bonus material myself. However, the actual [...]

Fetishization of Insanity

Recently I was playing Borderlands 2 and something struck me. Perhaps it’s because I’m not enjoying the game as much as I thought it would. But it really started to bug me out that most of the characters in the game are insane. The enemies you fight are psychotic. They laugh, scream, run around wildly [...]

Projection-Mapping GIYDA/plan12-Cologne

Last week I had the opportunity to make a Projection Mapping again. It was a wild party – the finishing event of the GIYDA (Grow-it-yourself Design & Architecture) workshop week. The people were great and the music was, too. This time the mapping was made more or less with “found material” and some quick written lua-stuff, utilizing Love2D. The focus was on colors, beat accuracy and communicating with people and the DJ. Once again this project was made possible with the support of the Dingfabrik e.V..

Die transprivate Filterbubble generiert simultane ‘Private Stars und Social Loser’

Das Konzept der Filterbubble flukturiert schon eine ganze Weile. Im deutschsprachigen Teil des WWW wurde es – der echte Bubble-Insider weiß sowas natürlich – nach einem Ted-Talk von Eli Pariser im Blog von Michael Seemann aufgegriffen, der die Idee mit seinem Begriff der Queryology verknüpfte.
Wobei die Idee wenn ich das richtig in Erinnerung habe, so wie das Allermeiste aus dem Bereich der Geisteswissenschaften, natürlich älter als das Netz ist und bereits durch Bücher und artverwandtes Druckwerk wanderte, als online sein noch out war, was laut diesem Zeitdokument etwa 1998 gewesen sein muss.

In der zeitgenössischen Filterbubblekonzeption herrscht die Vorstellung vor, dass wir zunehmend in einer Art medialen Informationsblase eingeschlossen werden, ohne es recht zu realisieren. In dieser Filterblase erhalten wir dann durch immer komplexere Algorithmen nur noch individuell zugeschnittene und vermeintlich von uns gewünschte Informationen zugespielt. Beispiele hierfür sind der Facebook Newsstream, Googles personalisierte Suche und aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach auch irgend etwas besonders perfides aus dem Hause Microsoft oder Apple.

Die Filterbubble-Idee lässte sich aber auch auf den Bereich des Startums und des Personenkults erweitern, verändert es ja letztlich auch die Selbstwahrnehmung in der Öffentlichkeit, womit ich faktisch die kalauernde Non-These stütze, dass das Internet die Gesetzt der Aufmerksamkeit außer Kraft setzt – oder sie zumindest einmal ändert.

Sascha Lobo beschreibt anschaulich wie sich die Filterbubble nun irgendwo zwischen der Suche nach Ruhm und Sichtbarkeit sowie den Fragen der Selbstinszenierung und – Wahrnehmung einfügt und von dort aus zu Weilem dem eigenen Ego schmeichelt.
Und irgendwo zwischen all diesen Dingen ist diese neue Arbeit aus der eigenen Produktion anzusiedeln.

Anzunehmen, dass Arthur Rimbaud der ja früh erkannte, dass Ich immer ein anderer ist, interessantes zum potentiellen Nutzen und Erfolg der filternden Algorithmen zu sagen gehabt hätte.
