Undocumented events and object permanence
"An online exhibition series thematizing documentation, conservation, (false) memory, (art) object, phenomenology, and blockchain certification".



“Every single day, more hours are spent looking at a screen than looking out of a window, the screen is our new landscape. Who defines and who depicts this landscape?”

An online exhibition curated by Constant Dullaart, with @raphaelbastide, Chris Collins, Petra Cortright, Sam Lavigne & Tega Brain, Jan Robert Leegte, Zach Lieberman, Rosa Menkman, Luca Napoli, Katja Novitskova, Suzanne Treister, LaTurbo Avedon


"HitchHiker is a chrome extension for doing live performances inside other people’s web browsers (...) Whenever the performer goes to a new website on their computer, all of the audience members are taken to that website. The performer can then modify the content of the website, speak through text-to-speech voice, play sounds or layer images on top of the screen, all of which is conveyed onto every audience members’ browser"

I am thrilled to have my ongoing project evasive.tech exhibited online in such a good company.


Thanks to @imal for its support.

Damn they'll probably all be dead when we come back to the office :(

"Everyone can launch the software, and they receive in real time through the Internet, the data controlling the instrument. (...) The rendering will not be fixed since the generativity of the code causes slight differences in the behavior of the algorithms.

(...) anyone connected to the Internet can attend. It develops and universalized the concept of shared time, basic concept of any performance work.""

It would be an interesting time to rethink remote live performances. Right now the obvious answer seems to be (for good reasons!) video streaming. But it's not the only one.

See for example chdh's egregore

The software they've used for their live performances in 2011-2014 was released to the public in 2015, and in May that year, they had a distributed performance where they controlled the egregore software remotely. Streaming (pure) data instead of video!

While we are all stuck at home we've prepared some mind-tingeling online content for you. First up are three video's by Sabrina Ratté. Discover her works here: imal.org/en/quarant-imal

Stay safe and inside, we'll post more content soon.

Jeremy Bailey's Master/Slave Invigilator System was a humorous technosolutionist answer to the inability to be everywhere, but I guess now it just works for the inability to be anywhere.

La #LoiHaine instaure l'État policier sur le Web au nom de l'anti-terro

Tout site Web doit censurer les contenus signalés par la police en tant que "terroristes", non plus en 24h mais en 1h

Thank you for all the support and kindness all these years to get this far xx🎓

through collaboration with an interactive program that he developed, Alexanco generated specifications for physical models, which he then formed manually in resin"
