Unsitely Aesthetics

Surface Tension Supplement No. 6
Unsitely Aesthetics: Uncertain Practices in Contemporary Art

Edited and with text by Maria Miranda.

Unsitely Aesthetics seeks to address the unconventional ways in which contemporary art is made and engaged with across the vastly expanded networks of new media culture, arguing–counterintuitively–that network culture not only embodies its own version of “situatedness” but can also lead to the creation of a more democratic art, with the Internet acting as a far broader public space than the traditional site-specificity of old, a space in which artists can encounter and perhaps even engender new publics for their work. The book aims to theorize current dynamics in media and sound art practice, and includes interviews and conversations with Barbara Campbell, Linda Carroli, Hugh Davies, Bec Dean, Renate Ferro, John Craig Freeman, Jo-Anne Green, Teri Hoskin, Lucas Ihlein, Yao Jui-Chung, kanarinka (a.k.a. Catherine D’Ignazio), Scott Kildall, Deborah Kelly, Natalie Loveless, Michael Takeo Magruder, Timothy Conway Murray, Norie Neumark, Victoria Scott, Brooke Singer, Igor Štromajer, Helen Thorington and Darren Tofts.

VOICE

VOICE
Vocal Aesthetics in Digital Arts and Media

Edited by Norie Neumark, Ross Gibson and Theo Van Leeuwen
The MIT Press, U.S.A.

Voice has returned to both theoretical and artistic agendas. In the digital era, techniques and technologies of voice have provoked insistent questioning of the distinction between the human voice and the voice of the machine, between genuine and synthetic affect, between the uniqueness of an individual voice and the social and cultural forces that shape it. This volume offers interdisciplinary perspectives on these topics from history, philosophy, cultural theory, film, dance, poetry, media arts, and computer games. Many chapters demonstrate Lewis Mumford’s idea of the “cultural preparation” that precedes technological innovation—that socially important new technologies are foreshadowed in philosophy, the arts, and everyday pastimes.

Chapters cover such technologies as voice mail, podcasting, and digital approximations of the human voice. A number of authors explore the performance, performativity, and authenticity (or ‘authenticity effect’) of voice in dance, poetry, film, and media arts; while others examine more immaterial concerns—the voice’s often-invoked magical powers, the ghostliness of disembodied voices, and posthuman vocalization. The chapters evoke an often paradoxical reassertion of the human in the use of voice in mainstream media including recorded music, films, and computer games.

Norie Neumark analyzes and writes about the Oppera Teorettikka Internettikka by Igor Štromajer.

Residence | @arselectronica Center / Future Lab, Linz: http://residence.aec.at. It's a bit hard to access this old, hidden — and certainly completely forgotten — URL in a desktop browser (privacy error, but you can overpass it), I had more luck on the phone (screenshots). It's certainly an amazing find: it contains some of the rare online works before the year 2000 which I was unable to find at the current AE Future Lab website https://ars.electronica.art/futurelab/en. It's a pity that they don't take proper care of the past and older works they have on their servers. It also says a lot about how much new and recent works are actually worth and what fate awaits them in a few years.
Still in the basement, reorganizing my archive. Today's find: @artpress.revue, November 1999, Annick Bureaud, Utopies distribuées; and my 'e/motion HELP – is there anybody out there?'
The days are hot, so I'm cooling down in the basement while reorganizing my archive: @beauxarts_magazin, November 2003 – Sprinkling Menstrual Navigator becoming part of the @centrepompidou permanent collection
Tidying and reorganizing my archive, because it's too messy and I can't find things. The 1999 COMTECart (@cynetart today) Festival catalog had a cover with a graphic from my work b.ALT.ica. The poster as well, but I can't find it.
