The festival outline poses a series of questions. &ldquo;Are there still modes of being that resist the imperative of digital capitalism to Capture All or is there no option but to play along? If so, are there artistic strategies and speculative approaches that do not play this game of quantification by the numbers? What are the blind spots and gaps of relentless quantification and gamification that can be exploited in order to carve out new ways of living?&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>DATAFIED RESEARCH aims to address this drive towards the quantification of everything (&ldquo;the datafied self&rdquo;, &ldquo;the datafied city&rdquo;, &ldquo;datafied management&rdquo;, and similar notions). Although there has always been the tendency to use data in research practices, especially in scientific work, now data takes on a new force as all aspects of culture have been infiltrated by &ldquo;big data&rdquo;. In the arts and humanities, this is also reflected in emerging research practices of &ldquo;computational humanities&rdquo; and &ldquo;digital humanities&rdquo; where cultural data is subject to analysis, and perceived as the future of research. However, in common with the artistic call, we are seeking analyses and responses that &ldquo;outsmart and outplay&rdquo; the logic of capturing everything applied by the corporate as well as the scientific communities, &ldquo;in order to organise ways to live, work and play that come together (or apart) in new ways&rdquo;. To inform effective critique, we propose that the workshop will be used to analyse and respond to the conditions of datafication, and the logic and techniques of capture, extraction and value creation. Such research, and subsequent deeper understandings and knowledge, may be founded in artistic research, critical theory, software studies, as well as other traditions, and subsequent deeper understandings and knowledge may hopefully enable us to develop strategies to live, work and play more autonomously.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>CONTEXT</strong><br /> Since 2011, Aarhus University and transmediale have organised events as part of an ongoing collaboration with shifting partner organizations: In/Compatible Research, Universit&auml;t der K&uuml;nste (Berlin, 2011); Researching #BWPWAP, Leuphana University of L&uuml;neburg (L&uuml;neburg, 2012); Post-digital Research, Kunsthal Aarhus (Aarhus, 2013). Each of these workshops has resulted in the publication of a peer-reviewed newspaper as an experiment in new forms of scholarly publication. In line with this, DATAFIED RESEARCH will further explore new frameworks for collaborative research, and will present its outcomes at transmediale 2015 as a newspaper as well as in other ways. In addition, lengthier substantial research articles, produced as a result of the workshop, are invited for submission to the partner journal&nbsp;<a href="http://www.aprja.net"><em>A Peer Reviewed Journal About</em></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The workshop aims to provide a forum for emerging researchers to enter into speculation, critique, exchange and dialogue about their research topic. The primary focus is on the participants' individual research projects, as well fostering networking, knowledge exchange and widening dissemination. Although the workshop is primarily aimed at international PhD researchers, it is also open to researchers such as artists and programmers who are pursuing research without institutional support.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>WORKLOAD &amp; CREDITS</strong><br /> Expected workloads include the production of a short text prior to the workshop, presentation of research, response and dialogue with other participants, the production of contents for a &ldquo;Peer-Reviewed Newspaper&rdquo;, and the production of a lengthier research article invited for submission to <a href="http://www.aprja.net"><em>A Peer Reviewed Journal About</em></a>. PhD students can be awarded 5 ECTS for their full participation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>SUBMISSION</strong><br /> We are seeking proposals consisting of a biography (500 characters), a statement on current research/description of PhD project (1000 characters), and a short description of how this research relates to the workshop theme (500 characters).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>The deadline for submissions is 4 August 2014.</em></p> <p><em>(Notification by 8 August 2014)</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&gt; <a href="/content/registration-form-datafied-research">Submit your proposal here.</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <!-- slider for related content --> <div id="panel-25600" class="relatedcontent" > </div> <!-- / slider for related content --> <div id="socialshareprivacy"></div> general content rss phd programme tm resource Tue, 17 Jun 2014 09:16:36 +0000 Lina Zuppke 25600 at http://www.transmediale.de Molten Media - Reading & Discussion with Rosemary Lee http://www.transmediale.de/content/molten-media-reading-discussion-with-rosemary-lee <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-general-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://www.transmediale.de/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://www.transmediale.de/files/Rosemary_Talk.jpg" type="image/jpeg; length=68233">Rosemary_Talk.jpg</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-generalproject-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <p>2014 Vil&eacute;m Flusser Residency for Artistic Research Artist in Residence Rosemary Lee will lead a reading and discussion related to her research.

Unsatisfied to merely implement biomachinery in an externalized fashion, the logic of encoding and execution of scripts becomes so embedded in life that it comes to transform the forms of life itself.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Examining the materiality of devices, likening them to fossils, suggests taking a long-term view of media technology. Applying a deep-time perspective to a rapid-cycling throwaway media culture, projects an alternate timescale for its material existence. To think of these objects in such terms begs the question of their origins, where this material will go when it has finished serving its purpose, as well as questioning its relation to our natural history.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>1.

Cultural forms of organisation hardly ever develop on the basis of strategic considerations but rather cluster around the individual needs of a specific project. Teams are built for a limited amount of time, splitting up again, or merging into networks. Money sometimes comes from private sometimes from public sources; sometimes not at all. How is it possible to build sustainable structures in spite of such unreliable dynamics? Which models of organisation make sense in the field of art and free culture? And, most importantly: what are the practical consequences of each organizational model? During this halfday workshop we will focus on three different organizational models: companies, non-for profit organizations and networks.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This workshop addresses cultural workers, freelancers, entrepreneurs or network activists who aim at developing a sustainable structure for their activities. We will talk about founding requirements, legal implications and practical aspects of daily business.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>// Moderators &amp; Facilitators:</strong></p> <p>&bull; <a href="http://www.jan-froehlich.de/">Jan Froehlich</a>, attorney-at-law, LL.M.(University of London), specialist solicitor informationtechnology-law &amp; trade-marks, patent, copyright law.

Each of them contributes different things: technologies, hardware and know-how. By combining all their resources they have a realistic basis to start their own company. They have found an ideal premise which they would like to rent &amp; turn into a studio. The team already collaborates on various projects, each of them under their own freelance label. After they will have founded their company, they plan to conduct all their business activities under one roof.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>These are the important questions they have to deal with:</p> <p>&bull; What kind of organization makes sense for them? What are the requirements to set up a company?<br /> &bull; What are the best ways of keeping track of the personal contributions of each member of a business partnership?<br /> &bull; How to allocate the profits?</p> <p>&bull; How scalable is the company? (in terms of growth, target group, product and future team members?)</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Use Case 2: Art Association</strong></p> <p>A group of artists aims at realizing a series of exhibitions together with international partners. The financing will be based on public funding. The group decideds to found an association in order to have an instrument for public funding acquisition. During their planning it becomes clear that they will have an income as well, through the sales of works of art for instance. They decide to appoint two team members as executive directors. However, the rest of the group wants to participate in the decision making. Together they reflect on the ideal organization form in order to realize their plans.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>These are the crucial questions they are facing right now:</p> <p>&bull; Should they go for a non-profit form or not? What are the pros and cons?<br /> &bull; How to organise a representative participation of all the association members?<br /> &bull; How to deal with income revenue?</p> <p>&bull; Is the foundation process complex? What does it entail? How long does it take?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Use Case 3: Network</strong></p> <p>Over the course of the last years, a stable network of media activits developed out of an online mailing list. This community is based on the initiative of a media researcher in the United States and meanwhile has local nodes in 23 countries. These local nodes use the network&rsquo;s label for all kinds of events. The network has no specific organizational forms, nor any hierarchies. The power of decision is held by the most active members. For instance, if the network has to decide whether to allow a new international node, then this decision is based on a majority vote. The network has to cover various costs, such as for the mailserver or the website maintenance. Other than that, the members of the network plan a physical gathering for all the 23 nodes. This calls for the acquisition of funding as well as for forming an organization committee. They discuss their different options via the mailing list, but it is difficult to actually get results: each country has their own legal practice and business organizations. How to find a form which supports the decentralized, international character of the network?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This is what the group discusses at the moment:</p> <p>&bull; How to organize responsibility in a network?

</strong></p> <p>Basically it is the use of a flexible production method or systems that support custom output. As a creative producer you might have a certain idea about the way your product or service should function or look like. What if a potential client likes your service or&nbsp; product in general, but needs it tailored to his or her needs in order to make use of it? Many creative businesses could increase their sales (and thus get out more of what they do) if they just knew how to adapt their production methods to different markets and clients.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Get More out of what you Do &ndash; Mass Customization for Makers</strong></p> <p>The MC for Makers workshop aims to help people in different fields of practice explore how they to get more out of what they do as a creative producer and how they can meet their client&rsquo;s diverse and changing needs. If you want to explore how you as a creative can get more out of resources, technology, materials or changing paradigms you are most welcome. The goal of the Mass Customization for Makers Worskshop is to help you figure out how to profit from peer-production models that promise to give actual control over consumption back to the consumers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>10:00&nbsp; Opening presentation:</strong> Round of Introductions &amp; Workshop Overview</p> <p><strong>11:00&nbsp; Breakout sessions:</strong> Participants break up into small groups. Each group is led by one of our experts from the fields of culture, science and economy and has a dedicated illustrator to help visualise ideas and concepts.

She is specialized in cupcakes (these wonderful, tasty little cakes with different ingredients and frostings). After she has started her business, she step by step learned about the various food requirements of her clients: some of them are vegan, others want to go low-fat and then there are those clients who ask for a marcipan rose on top. Ina would be really happy to adapt to her customer&rsquo;s needs, but she simply has no idea how she can approach this with the resources she has at hand.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&bull;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>User Experience</strong>: Tom works as a freelance information architect. He gets hired by corporations and multimedia agencies to create the information design of large-scale websites and mobile devices. Tom finds himself very often confronted with job requests that involve new technical platforms which he is not familiar with. In order to get those jobs, he has to spend a lot of time with research and it is not easy to find all the info he needs online. Tom thinks of ways how he can continue to be a freelancer and get access to all the cutting-edge knowledge that is out there and that he needs for the different job offers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&bull;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Make your own stamp</strong>: Matt and Sabine are two product designers who have just started their showroom. They focus on postcard and paper design and they plan to create a highly individual range of selected paper items, from calendars over postcards to stamps. They just wonder how to deal with the production cost and time which every personalized item would require. Then Matt has the idea to involve the customers into the making process and offer workshops where everyone can produce their own product line. Sabine is not convinced: those workshops will be quite expensive. Is there a real market for that?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&bull;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Art on Demand</strong>: An emerging art gallery collective thinks of ways how to produce &ldquo;art on demand&rdquo;. Their main questions and concerns are: will this still be art? How to advertise that? How to come up with a matrix for values and prices of the artworks? And how to estimate the time and conditions for an artwork to come into existence? And wouldn&rsquo;t this lead to inviting more artists to work in the gallery in order to meet different customer&rsquo;s tastes and requests? How to handle that? </p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Hosts: MC for Makers was organised by <a href="http://www.cookiesncode.com/">Cookies And Code</a> and the <a href="http://www.transmediale.de/fci">Free Culture Incubator</a> in partnership with the <a href="http://www.kultur-kreativ-wirtschaft.de/">Federal Government&rsquo;s Centre of Excellence for the Cultural and Creative Industries Initiative</a>.</p> </div> </div> </div> <!-- slider for related content --> <div id="panel-18266" class="relatedcontent" > </div> <!-- / slider for related content --> <div id="socialshareprivacy"></div> event Workshop rss free culture incubator beyond Mon, 09 May 2011 06:59:25 +0000 icybrand 18266 at http://www.transmediale.de RE-TOUCHING McLUHAN - THE MEDIUM IS THE MASSAGE // McLuhan in Europe 2011 Centennial Weekend http://www.transmediale.de/content/re-touching-mcluhan-medium-massage-mcluhan-europe-2011-centennial-weekend-0 <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-general-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://www.transmediale.de/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://www.transmediale.de/files/mcluhan_newspaper_1.JPG" type="image/jpeg; length=79717">mcluhan_newspaper.JPG</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-generalproject-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <p>transmediale, in collaboration with the Embassy of Canada Berlin and the Marshall McLuhan Salon are presenting a key weekend event celebrating the legacy of Canadian media philosopher Marshall McLuhan on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Miller</strong>, also most famously known as &lsquo;DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid&rsquo;, which is his stage name and self constructed persona, is an experimental and electronic hip-hop musician, conceptual artist, and writer. He was born in 1970 in Washington DC but has been based in New York City for many years. Paul Miller is a Professor at the European Graduate School (EGS) where he teaches Music Mediated Art. DJ Spooky is known amongst other things for his electronic experimentations in music known as both &ldquo;illbient&rdquo; and &ldquo;trip hop.&rdquo; His first album, <em>Dead Dreamer</em>, was released in 1996 and he has since then released over a dozen albums. He was the first editor of <em>Artbyte: The Magazine of Digital Arts,</em> which has since ceased publication. Miller&rsquo;s articles have widely been published in, for example, <em>The Source, The Village Voice, Artforum, Paper Magazine, Rap Pages</em>, and many other magazines and journals. The theory behind Paul D. Miller's eclectic aesthetic can be traced through the book Rhythm Science. His ideas on digital media art center around the figure of the DJ as the generalized, post-subjective auteur of postmodern media. The idea of the mix is central to his work and his entire aesthetic, in which disparate connections are made between different times, cultures, and styles, through which something new can emerge. His approach is a source of controversy regarding his heterogeneous oeuvre, which creates unexpected bridges linking the art gallery to the dance club to the concert hall.</p> </div> </div> </div> <!-- slider for related content --> <div id="panel-18047" class="relatedcontent" > <div class="field field-type-nodereferrer field-field-artwork-rel-content-0"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <div class="item-list"><ul><li class="first last"><a href="/content/re-touching-mcluhan-medium-massage-mcluhan-europe-2011-centennial-weekend-0">RE-TOUCHING McLUHAN - THE MEDIUM IS THE MASSAGE // McLuhan in Europe 2011 Centennial Weekend</a></li> </ul></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <!-- / slider for related content --> <div id="socialshareprivacy"></div> participant rss mcluhan mcluhan 2011 mcluhan in europe partner event participant Tue, 22 Mar 2011 11:41:35 +0000 Michelle 18047 at http://www.transmediale.de Steffi Winkler http://www.transmediale.de/content/steffi-winkler <div class="field field-type-text field-field-participant-name-alpha"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> Winkler, Steffi </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-participant-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://www.transmediale.de/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://www.transmediale.de/files/steffi_winkler_300-166.jpg" type="image/jpeg; length=292877">steffi_winkler_300-166.jpg</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-participant-origin"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> de </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-participant-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <p><strong>Steffi Winkler</strong> studied communication science and philosophy at Freie Universit&auml;t Berlin, Germany.

And by 1965-1966, with the Variations V &ndash; VII, Cage and Tudor expanded this practice to the design and animation of elaborate electro-acoustic systems, including their projects for &ldquo;9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering&rdquo; in 1966.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Efforts to think McLuhan&rsquo;s work in relation to Cage&rsquo;s work have often seized on McLuhan&rsquo;s pronouncements about &ldquo;auditory space&rdquo; as characterized by total involvement, immersion and simultaneity, and newly globalized networks in which &ldquo;everything is happening at once everywhere&rdquo; &ndash; terms that Cage himself embraced. Yet Cage and Tudor&rsquo;s pioneering electro-acoustic projects of the mid-1960s offer a different set of models for thinking about technology as an extension of the human body, as an extended nervous system that interpenetrates technological and physiological realms. In our efforts to theorize the emergence of a new electronic environments in the 1960s, these projects &ndash; which were intimately related to the emergence of expanded cinema and increasingly technicist models in the visual arts &ndash; have been largely neglected.<strong><br /> </strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <!-- slider for related content --> <p class="slide"><a href="#" class="btn-slide btn-slide-18045" onClick="return slidePanel_18045()">View details</a></p> <div id="panel-18045" class="relatedcontent" style="display: none;"> <script type="text/javascript"> function slidePanel_18045() { $("#panel-18045").slideToggle("fast"); $(".btn-slide-18045").toggleClass("slideactive"); return false; }; </script> <div class="field field-type-nodereferrer field-field-participant-related-event"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <div class="item-list"><ul><li class="first last"><a href="/content/re-touching-mcluhan-medium-massage-conference">RE-TOUCHING McLUHAN - The Medium is the Massage Conference</a></li> </ul></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereferrer field-field-artwork-rel-content-0"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd first"> <div class="item-list"><ul><li class="first last"><a href="/content/re-touching-mcluhan-medium-massage-mcluhan-europe-2011-centennial-weekend-0">RE-TOUCHING McLUHAN - THE MEDIUM IS THE MASSAGE // McLuhan in Europe 2011 Centennial Weekend</a></li> </ul></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <!-- / slider for related content --> <div id="socialshareprivacy"></div> participant rss mcluhan mcluhan 2011 mcluhan in europe partner event participant Tue, 22 Mar 2011 10:53:54 +0000 Michelle 18045 at http://www.transmediale.de
