Reariting Allison Parrish

how orthography expresses embodied linguistic intention./invention/revention. Convention. How correctness embodies/emboldens priviledge. The edge of meaning. The edge of our very selves/souls/ames. Summary of the reariting by Deena larsen.

We have been Thinking through / diving in / swimming around / plumbing the depths of Desire (under)lines: Notes toward a queer phenomenology of spell check by Allison Parrish

You can visit the pad itself or download this reariting as a .pdf.

Second Tuesday Salon  Reariting session.
March 8, 2022. 9 am MST, 11 am EST, 4 pm UTC, 5 pm Paris time. Duration 1 hour.

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.

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.

A conversation with Naoto.

I love the way the experimental conversation (interactive, generative) for which Naoto Hieda invited me evolves. He uses keywords and hashtags in what looks like a simple hypertext structure, but actually is based on code and javascript.

We started with #anders, #contrainte and #error.
The conversation is ongoing. memoires.glitch.me

This is an image Naoto made after I had send him a photo and a short story.The photo made him think of something romantic, maybe a Monet image. He wrote: “Then I thought about generating an image using an algorithmic model but I stopped because I hate AI generated images. They lack imagination. Instead I made a small program to generate another reality of the photo, which doesn’t look like Monet but it is some thing.” And he also send a link to the code he used: https://editor.p5js.org/micuat/sketches/alaRE_uCJ

Reflections on language(s) and/on/in/through the web & people & vice versa- en français & in English

With/avec/by/par Jean-Pierre Balpe, Claire Larsonneur, Serge Bouchardon & Nohelia Meza, Saemmer Alexandra / Anna-Maria Wegekreuz, J R de Plume, Charlie Gere, Lou Sarabadzic, Janan Marasligil, and Annie Abrahams.

Toute l’œuvre d’Annie Abrahams consiste à expérimenter à travers la performance la communication numérique en mobilisant tous les types de langage possible pour contrecarrer les approches réductrices et essentialistes de la présence, de l’identité, de l’Autre et de la communication. Pour citer la contribution qu’on trouvera dans le présent numéro :

Je suis invisible, exotique, non identifiable, floue, trouble, changeante, grossière, vulgaire, rustre, crue, insolente, naïve, aliénée.

Je suis queer, hybride, complexe, malléable, pliable, souvent seule, silencieuse, distordue, déformée, subversive, solitaire.

Je suis parfois aussi abjecte, offensante, souvent incompréhensible et impolie.

Je parle une langue cassée, ma langue est bâtarde, bancale, tordue, tortue, torte, tortueuse.

Un e-tranger vit entre les cultures, est nulle part et partout à la fois.

Nous sommes des hommes traduits, complexes […]”

La revue Hybrid est une revue bilingue (français-anglais) portée par l’École Universitaire de Recherche ArTeC et publiée en ligne par les Presses Universitaires de Vincennes.

ELO 2021 Utterings

Utterings Performance: Supra Semiotics. 30 min.
May 25th 2021 20h Paris time.
Attunement: https://jaapblonk.bandcamp.com/album/antonin-artaud-by-jaap-blonk

from 3 min. on

Utterings Panel: Toward a Supra-Semiotic Telepresent Communication.
May 26th 2021 14h30 Paris time.
Members of our group will collectively discuss what we have pragmatically learned and experienced in our performance research thus far. During the panel we make a writing pad available, where the audience can collectively read and write their thoughts on utterings as a communication form. Utterings will join and continue the discussion on the writing pad in the last part of the panel.

panel starts at 5 min.

Utterings is a networked performance and research group whose members gather online and, while blindfolded, engage in utterings as communication. We want to create an on the fly “new” language, that forwards attention, trust and feelings, above rationality. Put another way, we seek to develop a shared, experiential, supra-semiotic form of communication based on our ongoing performance history with each other. Michael Bakhtin’s concept of the “utterance event” as a node of intersection between lived, present-tense communication and atemporal, semiotic meaning has informed our research. Over the past year, we have enacted eight performances online “at” festivals “in” Nantes (France), Birmingham (UK), Linz (Austria), and London (UK).

COVID E-lit

COVID E-lit exhibition. May 1st 2021 Opening.
Included is Pandemic Encounter by Annie Abrahams and Breathing by Utterings.

Annie Abrahams | Pandemic Encounter.
Breathing is usually an unconscious process shared by all persons, but during the pandemic, it has become a common source of anxiety. This audio track exteriorizes the raw, raspy discomfort of our new reality. It mixes the artist’s respiration; computer-generated, distorted heartbeats; and a sound piece called “Silences” by Frans van Lent, which captures the silences of twenty artists from all around the world.

Utterings | Breathing.
Confronts the viewer with a “being” that is the result of an intricate, active, interlaced communicative structure in which both humans and machines are involved in a process of shared auditory exchange and attention. Through the mixing of six audio and video streams emerges an image of a phantom-like breathing, pulsating entity that thrives through affection, attention, glitches, delays and even voids.
