Online Affects – DF #9

17.6 – 16.7.2022, Distant Feeling(s) #9
Online Affects, Video Essay Gallery, Exhibition 2, Filmexplorer, CH.
Curation: Chloé Galibert-Laîné. In her curational text she wonders – does watching this video actually require closing one’s eyes while it plays?

Are affects more than just the expression of pure subjectivity? What happens when we do not know how to watch? What do watching experimental films and watching video essays have in common? How should we understand the performance of watching?

These and other questions punctuate the podcast discussion of Online Affects between the three curators: Chloé Galibert-Laîné, Kevin B. Lee and Johannes Binotto.
Listen to it if you are interested in understanding states of spectatorship.

Filmexplorer focuses on movies as sources of experience, and not as commodities to be consumed.

Un lit en pierre, des pierres qui deviennent des lits.

Design graphique: Traduttore, traditore

Depuis le mois de mars j’ai travaillé avec plaisir à un commissariat d’exposition pour le projet Labo_Démo du Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles|Paris.
Avec les deux autres commissaires, Clément Faydit & Rozenn Voyer du collectif Traduttore, traditore, nous avons sélectionné six artistes avec qui nous avons travaillé six fois en ligne. Puis nous avons résidé une semaine toustes ensemble à la Cômerie à Marseille. La mise en place de l’exposition/installation au Centre de Danse du Marais (très atypique) se fera également collectivement.
Le processus de cet aventure, plein de belles surprises et de la poésie, mais aussi avec son lot d’obstacles et de malentendus est décrit dans une édition spéciale, disponible sur place.
Merci à Axel Durand, Marrion Lissarrague, Duc-Thuan Nguyen, Clyde Lepage, Natalie Malisse et Zélie Péguillan.

Reariting a conversation between Rhea Myers & Mckenzie Wark 

fascist encryption, conspiracies, why own?, provenance, deskilling, collecting, glitch, commons, civil liberties, ownership

Friday March 4 2022. A reariting* based on a conversation between Rhea Myers & Mckenzie Wark published on OUTLAND.
With Brian Droitcour, Ruth Catlow, Gretta Louw, Daniel Temkin and Annie Abrahams.

Some image snippets:

Because I, Annie, felt Myers & Wark‘s conversation contained a lot of interesting points that I didn’t really understand, I organized a reariting* of its publication on OUTLAND. I was/am struggling to comprehend issues around NFT’s, chains and DAO’s, and hoped reariting the conversation would clear up my mind.
It worked, I learned a lot.
A big thanks to my very generous co-reariters.
Here is the .pdf to check us out:

*Reariting is the act of simultaneous reading and writing together on the Internet. Reariting is a feminist technique to think through a text together. While reading a text, all participants use the same framapad to write their reactions and asides related to the text, thus exploring their understandings and misunderstandings of it. Reariting is about thinking and learning, finding links, soft and blind spots, returning and kneading. It always starts somewhere in the middle, and somehow never ends.

Thus the Reading Club manifests itself as a facilitator for a diffractive, distributed intelligence on-the-fly, creating text and relational patterns that do not depend on canons. It generates creative and unexpected “outcomes”. These are, in my opinion, not so much the texts produced, as the “diffractive moments” experienced by the reariters. Diffractive Reading in the Reading Club, Annie Abrahams, 2019.
https://elmcip.net/critical-writing/diffractive-reading-reading-club

In the article with Emmanuel Guez: The machinic author, published in JCWS (Journal of Creative Writing Studies) we formulate it a bit differently:
She assists in an event that allows for diffractive moments (5) – i.e “a mapping of interference” which take her out of self reflexivity, out of systemised subjectivity, out of a world that only reproduces what it knows already into an intra-active diffractive worlding (6). The machnic author revealed herself as queer.

instants – archives

merci à Luc Dall’armellina pour la capture

Tellement contente d’avoir retrouvé sur un vieux DD les fichiers html des InstantS; un projet d’écriture en ligne, proposé par moi pour le site panoplie .org ( 2006-2009).
Les archives, les InstantPortraits de Nicolas Frespech, Jacques Perconte, Jean Pierre Balpe, Xavier Leton, Ami Barak, Olga Kisseleva, Marc Veyrat, Annick Bureaud, André Lozano, Annie Abrahams, David-Olivier Lartigaud, Etienne Cliquet, Philippe Castellin, Victoria Welby, Anne Laforet, Albertine Meunier, Luc Dall’armellina, Cyril Thomas et Antoine Moreau peuvent être lus à nouveau.

Je rêve de pouvoir faire un livre, un jour, avec cette écriture si particulière. Qu’est-ce qu’elle nous dit de l’époque que nous vivions? En quoi elle se distingue de tout autre écriture?
Est-ce son caractère performatif qui la rend autre. (AA 2008 – 2022)

Pendant un mois un invité; artiste, écrivain, critique, chercheur ou autre activité en rapport avec internet, utilisait son portable et/ou ordinateur pour envoyer du texte au site de panoplie.org. Ce texte envoyé était instantanément visible sur la première page du site. A l’invité de décider comment il utilisera cet outil, cette présence par l’instant. La totalité des textes envoyés par l’invité formera son InstantPortrait.

InstantS était dérivé du projet Instants RSS de Nicolas Frespech, dans lequel Nicolas détourne un fil RSS* pour comme il le dit lui-même “vous envoyer des pensées, des morceaux de ma journée, des éléments, des liens hypertextes, tous ayant comme sujet l’heure très précise à laquelle cette information a été envoyée.”

*Un flux RSS ou fil RSS (“RSS feed” en anglais), sigle de Really Simple Syndication (souscription vraiment simple), ou de Rich Site Summary (Sommaire d’un site enrichi) est un format de syndication de contenu Web. Ce système permet de diffuser les nouvelles des sites d’information ou des blogs, ce qui permet de rapidement consulter ces dernières sans visiter le site.http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Really_Simple_Syndication.

the significance of maintaining online access to obsolete Adobe Shockwave Flash (SWF) files through the source code

Anna Mladentseva wrote an interesting article on conservation, archiving and performance of flash-based pieces. She mentions how I kept what was left of Karaoke (2006) on it’s original page, and included at the same page the Rhizome’s Conifer archive of the piece working but also have the original .swf and .fla files available on the website.

On conservation of netart, archiving, code and performance.

Anna Mladentseva (2022): Responding to obsolescence in Flash-based net art: a case study on migrating Sinae Kim’s Genesis, Journal of the Institute of Conservation, DOI: 10.1080/19455224.2021.2007412
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/19455224.2021.2007412

This article outlines an alternative method of migration facilitated by reverse engineering techniques—specifically decompilation—and foregrounds the significance of maintaining online access to the obsolete Adobe Shockwave Flash (SWF) files through the source code. On this premise, the source code is re-imagined as a site for further re-enactment, allowing a departure from its current role as a marker of ‘authenticity’.

On Dec. 30, 2021 Distant Feeling(s) #9 integrated Bjørn Magnhildøen‘s project Past Convention

DF#9 is the fifth annual activation of Distant Feeling(s), again sharing time together, online, without speaking and with our eyes closed.
