Mon, 24 Jul 2017 15:09:00 +0000

Informed by several years of research in the Australian outback desert, It Was Like Experiencing a Fold in Time, She Said bridges the gap between, on the one hand, the landscapes, mythologies and life of outback and aboriginal communities and on the other hand, the brutal origins of our technological ‘progress’



Alchemy. The Great Art

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 14:40:33 +0000

The exhibition explores the enduring influence of alchemy over art. The alliance between the two fields is an intimate one: both art and alchemy are about creation, both rely on experimentation, knowledge-seeking and passion.

Work it, Feel it! New mechanisms of body discipline

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 16:21:45 +0000

Work it, feel it! is dedicated to the work of the future and the future of work. The exhibition focuses on the demands placed on the human body and its possibilities to act, as seen against the backdrop of an increasingly automated workplace. What are the mechanisms of discipline and control that have been applied to the mind, and above all to the body, to make it an efficient production tool and a pillar of consumerism?



MOMENTUM 9: A case for user-alienating design

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 14:38:35 +0000

The reason why i wanted to write about the website of MOMENTUM 9 the Nordic Biennial of Contemporary Art is that it doesn’t look like anything i have experienced before. First of all, it doesn’t seem to pride itself in being user-friendly...



The Museum of NonHumanity

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 14:38:52 +0000

Throughout history, declaring a group to be nonhuman or subhuman has been an effective tool for justifying slavery, oppression and genocide. Conversely, differentiating humans from other species has paved the way for the abuse of natural resources and other animals

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 16:35:05 +0000

They sustain a narrative about landscape, nature, and the built environment that highlights the intriguing and surprising characteristics latent in the elements and rituals that pervade daily life



MOMENTUM9. Maybe none of this is science fiction

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 08:05:40 +0000

Alienation represents a potential to expand the horizons of our current lives, to think and act progressively and usher in change. Thus M9 wants to welcome the alien, also the alien in us, without preconceptions of familiar and foreign. It wants to welcome the alien as a challenge to the present as well as a promise of better, extraordinary futures



MOMENTUM9 – “Alienation is our contemporary condition”

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 16:45:53 +0000

Momentum 9, The Nordic Biennial of Contemporary Art, opened a few days ago in Moss, Norway. Its focus is Alienation, a pertinent theme for a time characterized by deep social and economic inequalities, new forms of rabid colonialism, atmospheric turmoil, transhumanism, closing borders and relentless questioning of democracy

  • Global Inequality in Your Pocket: How Cheap Smartphones and Lax Policies Leave Us Vulnerable to Hacking - Global Voices Advocacy
    As a result, wealthier users who can afford to purchase new high-end devices every few years are protected from many threats that the majority of users — who use cheaper or used models, and don’t replace them as often — are vulnerable to. This means that the people who can least afford it are the most vulnerable to fraud, identity theft, predatory scams, cyberstalking and harassment, and other harms a person can suffer when their digital privacy is violated.
  • Space Sex Is Serious Business | FiveThirtyEight
    The research on reproduction in space has been slow and underfunded. It’s happened in fits and starts over the course of 50 years. All told, at least five species — from amoebas to rats — have gone through the, er, act of reproduction while in orbit.1 Other species have spent part of their gestation in space or donated their space-altered sperm and eggs to science.

  • Bacteria, Methane, and Other Dangers Within Siberia’s Melting Permafrost | WIRED
    For hundreds of thousands of years, the Siberian permafrost has been a giant freezer for everything buried within it. But global warming has put the frozen ground in defrost mode, and the tundra is now heating up twice as fast as the rest of the planet. “Permafrost is a silent ticking time bomb,” says Robert Spencer, an environmental scientist at Florida State University. As it thaws, the dirt could release a litany of horrors. Beware: The ice-beasts cometh.
  • Trump Presidency “opens door” to planet-hacking geoengineer experiments | Environment | The Guardian
    scientists have warned it could have catastrophic consequences for the Earth’s weather systems. Scientific modelling has shown that stratospheric spraying could drastically curtail rainfall throughout Asia, Africa and South America, causing severe droughts and threatening food supply for billions of people. “Clearly parts of the Trump administration are very willing to open the door to reckless schemes like David Keith’s, and may well have quietly given the nod to open-air experiments,” said Silvia Riberio, with technology watchdog ETC Group. “Worryingly, geoengineering may emerge as this administration’s preferred approach to global warming. In their view, building a big beautiful wall of sulphate in the sky could be a perfect excuse to allow uncontrolled fossil fuel extraction. We need to be focussing on radical emissions cuts, not dangerous and unjust technofixes.”

  • En Écosse, des employés d'Amazon en sont réduits à dormir sous des tentes pour pouvoir travailler
    Au contraire, les porte-parole de la boîte sont même enthousiastes sur les conditions de travail imposées à leurs employés. "Pendant le Black Friday [jour où le plus grand nombre de commandes est enregistré, ndlr], nous avons organisé des tombolas gratuites. Il faut que les employés s'amusent", s'est ainsi réjoui Paul Ashraf, manager général des opérations pour Amazon au Royaume-Uni. Un discours paternaliste digne du XIXe siècle et à mille lieues des réalités du quotidien des entrepôts.
  • 'We've left junk everywhere': why space pollution could be humanity's next big problem | Science | The Guardian
    While estimations vary, there are about 4,000 active and inactive satellites in space. They are at risk of being hit by the approximately half a million bits of floating space debris, ranging in size from micro-millimetres to two double-decker buses. “What everyone is realising is this is a growing problem, though nobody gave a shit in the early days of space exploration,” Held says.
  • Artificial Intelligence: The Park Rangers of the Anthropocene - The Atlantic
    In an intriguing thought experiment, landscape architect Bradley Cantrell, historian Laura Martin, and ecologist Erle Ellis have taken this ethos to its logical extreme, and ended up with what they call a “wildness creator”—a hypothetical artificial intelligence that would autonomously protect wild spaces. We’d create it, obviously, but then let it go, so it would develop its own strategies for protecting nature.
  • Should a human-pig chimera be treated as a person?
    “These concerns about chimeric research add to the already potent ethical issues associated with mainstream invasive animal research. Tens of millions of animals are sickened, injured, genetically manipulated, and killed in biomedical labs every year, even as a robust body of evidence shows that some animals are more self-aware and emotionally and cognitively complex than we previously thought. That leads to the inescapable conclusion that we have already crossed a number of moral lines.”
  • Dyslexia in Chinese: Disability of a different character | The Economist
    Until recently it was assumed that dyslexia had a universal biological origin, whatever language a person was reading. But being dyslexic in Chinese is not the same as being dyslexic in English, according to Wai Ting Siok of Hong Kong University. Her team's MRI studies showed that dyslexia among users of alphabetic scripts such as English and of logographic ones such as Chinese was associated with different parts of the brain, just as different parts of the brain were involved in reading the two types of language.

  • FCJ 28: Creative Robotics
    The Creative Robotics issue wants to wrestle with the figure of the robot as a historically and culturally constructed sociomaterial assemblage and with how it enacts a number of political, social and aesthetic questions
  • The world if robots take our jobs - YouTube
    Computers are taking on increasingly sophisticated tasks, a trend which will cost many people their jobs. With so much automation to come, how many humans will still be needed?
  • Going for gold: Conflict Minerals at Arts Catalyst - review | The Independent
    Greenland also happens to be home to colossal reserves of rare minerals, and more people believe Greenland’s route to full independence could lie in the extraction of huge quantities of uranium and rare earth metals. Mining companies from countries as distant as Australia and China are only too ready to help Greenland shake off its colonial past.
  • When Fingerprints Are as Easy to Steal as Passwords: The Case for New Biometrics - The Atlantic
    As hackers learn to imitate the body's unique features, scientists might turn to brainwaves and genomics to verify people's identities.
  • Encountering the other mind: How AI will shift our design process, and in turn, our cities — Freunde von Freunden
    The questions of who is included and who is excluded from the wealth arise and the world may become more divided because people who qualify as “citizens” will enforce protection of a native basic income system. So perhaps unless UBI works everywhere at once it could help make global divisions between the rich and the poor even worse.
  • Field Report on an Artist and Her Pigs
    Tin Nyo, rather than forcing judgment, is forcing an engagement with the wages of survival against the desire for pleasure, and our unwillingness to tease them apart — just as we incorporate our iPhones into every corner of our lives while the conditions under which their materials are mined and manufactured remain background noise at best.
