Lockdown – Rencontre Pandémique

Photo made during the performance in the Third Space Network

August 01 2020 – 01 September 2020
LOCKDOWN
Vernissage 01/08/2020 19h.
4 Rue de Trupet,
La Trimouille, 86290 France.
L’entrée n’est pas autorisée sans masque.

A T E L I E R M E L U S I N E will reopen its doors to visitors with the exhibition LOCKDOWN. This specifically curated show features work by Carl Abrahamsson, Annie Abrahams, Annett & Annett-Parish, Nadia Perrotta and Lesly Pierrepaul. It deals with experiences connected directly to the COVID 19 pandemic; confinement in a digital age, suffocation and the salvation of breath and breathing, the reality of suffering from poor political leadership during a crisis and the mystical elements around illness and hypoxemia.

Une fois la porte fermée, on est confronté au bruit troublant d’une personne qui s’efforce de respirer et à un rythme cardiaque rythmé mais déformé… Inutile de dire que ce n’est pas un espace confortable. …
… Ici, dans cette galerie, le processus normalement inconscient de la respiration est soudain au premier plan, au centre et urgent dans sa “nullité” râpeuse.
Review by Elizabeth Stewart.

Dans Rencontre Pandémique, son, 4.50 min, Annie Abrahams a mélangé ses respirations avec des battements de coeur déformés générés par ordinateur. Le fichier sonore a été utilisé le 23 mai 2020 dans Pandemic Encounters, une installation de performance en réseau de Paul Sermon en collaboration avec Randall Packer, Gregory Kuhn, le Third Space Network et les conférences de Leonardo Laser.

(Un)Distance ELOrlando

An ELOrlando 2020: Virtual Edition Panel.
Friday July 17, 1pm EDT, 19h Paris time.

A videorecording of the event here.
Log file of the zoom chat here.

You can download the framapad as a .pdf – saved on July 17 21H Paris time.

What does it mean to be together apart? How can we create and share ideas from an (un)distance?
In this experimental panel we will explore the topic “(un)distance” as a way to b(e/r)ing us together and to share ideas over various (di)stances and (di)scourses. We will center around  long-distance writing practices, and will self-reflexively discuss how effective on-line community discussion works.

You could have participated watching the video conference while at the same time joining in a collaborative reariting on a framapad.
If you click on the clock icon topright in the framapad you can see a cinamatographic image of the reawriting – a historique dynamique.

The framapad is a site for your thoughts and longer discussions, for questioning/commenting/digressing/feeding and disturbing the (un)distance elo panel before, during and after its effectuation.

The panel will be moderated by Annie Abrahams and Anna Nacher on zoom, Deena Larsen and Johannah Rodgers in the framapad.

Open Publishing Fest – reariting

On Wednesday Mai 27th 21h Paris time (CEST) the group Constallationss* proposes a Reariting** session during the Open Publishing Fest***  (OPF May 18-29)
The session will last 90 min and takes a text related to the book Thought in the Act by Erin Manning and Brian Massumi as its starting point.

If you want to rearite with us on the 27th, please write to Annie bram.org@gmail.com or Alix alixdesaubliaux@gmail.com to reserve your place.
Info : https://constallationss.hotglue.me/?OPF

reariting a method to think together

The session will start with a 10 min long explanation and attunement on zoom.
Then the participants will go to a collective writing pad where they will find a link to the selected text that they start reading individually. On the pad they write their notes, reflexions, questions, digressions – the ones through the others – and react to those of the others.
After one hour of reariting we will shortly reconnect in zoom to discuss the process.

this is not about producing a text together, but about using reariting as a technique to think through a text together.

*Constallationss is an online art / research group started in 2018 by Annie Abrahams, Alix Desaubliaux and Pascale Barret. In 2020 Alice Lenay, Carin Klonowski and Gwendoline Samidoust joined. The group uses the internet, challenges and surprises as tools for what Annie called contemporary net art, Pascale a non-binary inclusive laboratory, and Alix performative and collaborative explorations. Their methodology: constallations.hotglue.me/?methodologie

**Reariting 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.

***Open Publishing Fest is a decentralized public event that brings together communities supporting open source software, open content, and open publishing models. Held over two weeks in May, Open Publishing Fest will feature discussions, demos, and performances that showcase our paths toward a more open world.

#PEAE published in ebr

It touches on my inability, unwillingness to categorize my work and where that leads.

Published: Abrahams, Annie. “#PEAE Participative Ethology in Artificial Environments”, Electronic Book Review, May 3, 2020.

Pondering on my relation to electronic literature / e-lit for the eloCork 2019 conference, where is was invited, I was surprised to discover how strong that was. My interest for text and translation has pervaded my all over, what? … networked practice …
I am happy that the article that resulted from the venture has been published in the Electronic book Review. (thanks eo-Cork and ebr) My only regret is that I didn’t mention my ongoing e-stranger – What language does to you or not. – project.
