Artistic Textual and Performative Paths in New Media Correlations: An Interview with Annie Abrahams
by Evelin Stermitz

Evelin Stermitz‘ interview with net artist Annie Abrahams, whose “works are structured on both digitized hyper and on site realities. She constructs forms of collective writings on the net and reconstructs them into offline perceptions, which leads to creations of net-operas and other web based interventions.”

Fylkingen’s journal Hz started as a non-virtual journal after its predecessor Fylkingen Bulletin from ’60s. Since 2000, Hz moved to the Internet and has become an Internet journal, one of the few in Sweden. From the second issue in 2003 it also includes Net Gallery, where international Internet art works are presented.

Double Blind (love) documentation by Curt Cloninger

Documentation of  Double Blind (Love) by Curt Cloninger.

Some thoughts on attempting to archiving a counfounded time:
Text wriiten by Curt Cloninger on the NetBehaviour list.

“My video documentation winds up being higher fidelity and more
intentionally synchronized than the original performance. There are
all sorts of very strange questions that arise in terms of the
synchronization. If I synch up Annie’s audio track from France with
the background arrival of her audio in the US, is that a “correct”
synchronization, or am I re-ordering the flow of time after the fact?
As I have been trying to synch everything up, sometimes the “arrival”
of Annie’s sound in my US audio will come before the “launch” of her
sound in the France audio — a kind of impossible, prophetic
re-rendering of time. Read the rest of this entry »

Interesting and affecting convergence of the performative work Curt Cloninger has been doing of late with the strange, wonderful & categorisation denying oeuvre of Annie Abrahams.

Elisabeth Rolland-Thiers, doctorante in cognitive experimental psychologie, and  Bénédicte Aptel-Guiu, researcher in dermatology, have performed a protocole in front of two computers equiped with a webcam..

The two distant researchers were united in one projected image.  This image with it’s shared interior  border became the common interaction space, the playing field, the laboratory in which they tested some limits and possibilities of remote communication and collaboration.

Oppera Internettikka – Protection et Sécurité van Annie Abrahams & Igor Stromajer
(Montpellier, Frankrijk, 2006)

V/J12 is een project van Constant, Vereniging voor Kunst en Media.

Drie rode draden weven zich door de 12de editie van het Verbindingen/Jonctions festival.
De eerste, In de schaduw van de grijze literatuur neemt ons mee op een speelse, kritische ontdekkingstocht langs documenten, teksten, commentaren die de elektronische communicatie van op de achtergrond organiseren. De continuïteit van de informatie-flow wordt verzekerd door een massa anonieme documenten (licenties, specificaties, voorwaarden, richtlijnen, standaarden etc.). Alom aanwezige grijze literatuur licht op vanuit de marges en regelt de relatie tussen mens en machine. Ook de relatie die mensen via netwerken onderhouden, wordt door deze literatuur gekaderd, maar wie heeft het recht haar te lezen, te schrijven of uit te voeren ?
