Conférence sur canapé, Design, dasein, lasagnes… Oudeis

En juillet dernier : deux jours d’expérimentation, de performance avec OUDEIS. Un régal.
Venez le mercredi 22 et jeudi 23 novembre, 18h, à Ganges pour les Apéros Sonores au Café du Siècle. Ce sera une suite sonore des Conférences sur canapé dans le cadre du festival En chantier …!

Design, dasein, lasagnes.. Version longue. 10 min. Version courte 2 min. ici

Avec Dorian Reunkrilerk, Annie Abrahams, Manuel Fadat, Sandra et Gaspard Bébié-Valérian.
Juillet 2017

La Conférence sur canapé est un dispositif performatif en perpétuelle évolution, réunissant en un temps et un espace donné un certain nombre d’individus, de technologies, d’énergies, de matériaux, pour une expérience collective, avec ou sans spectateurs, connecté ou non, sur le web, autour d’une figure, d’une pensée, d’un discours, de propos, que des performers accompagnent, modèrent, parasitent, lissent, perturbent, interpellent. Situation inédite, indéterministe, la Conférence sur canapé explore, délivre plus qu’elle livre, elle n’est jamais en échec.

Interroger le confort – qu’en est-il aujourd’hui de la question du confort, que traduit-il de notre conduite au monde ? partir dans l’espace – en espace. Quel est notre rapport aux objets en apesanteur ?
Nous habitons des volumes, plus des surfaces ou des sols. L’espace met à défaut le corps et ses habitudes. (passage octave de gaulle).
La négociation du corps avec son environnement n’existe plus, il n’est plus visqueux.
Sur terre, considérons le corps comme une matière visqueuse qui s’échoit sur des objets. Je m’asseois et je négocie. Le choc des particules.
Quand le beurre est coupé, le couteau est affecté.
Le confort est le contraire : la présence de l’environnement matériel disparaît. Le confort c’est l’espace. C’est dans la chute libre que je négocie le moins avec les particules – je fais le moins d’effort. Confort, du latin confortare, dérivé de com-fortis, c a d soulager d’une peine, d’un effort. Didier Faustino – Opus incertum
Dois-t-on réellement chercher le moindre des effort ? Bruno Munari – recherche de confort dans un fauteuil inconfortable. Munari va à l’encontre du processus de mort. Xavier Bichat, 1800 : la vie réunit l’ensemble des fonctions qui résistent à la mort. En ce sens, le confort, participe à l’accélaration du processus de mort.
Reversible Destiny – Arakawa Shusaku et Madeline Gins – ne pas mourir.
Faire l’effort de faire autrement – avoir des possibilités et des paramètres. Ne pas se sentir dans une injontion d’un usage équivoque. Ethique joyeuse du corps visqueux.
Le confort serait-il justement le paramétrage ? Dorian Reunkrilerk

#NeWWWorlDisorder

#NeWWWorlDisorder

29/07 2017 6-7.30 pm Paris time (12pm EDT)
#NeWWWorlDisorder broadcast performance on facebook
and the Third Space Network.

With : Annie Abrahams, Domenico Dom Barra, Michaël Borras A.K.A. Systaime, Curt Cloninger, Carla Gannis, Johann Baron Lanteigne, Patrick Lichty, Randall Packer, Daniel Pinheiro, Dominik Podsiadly, Craig Saper and Paul Wong.

Hosted by Randall Packer & Michaël Borras A.K.A Systaime.

How do we make sense of the resultant cacophony of our networked actions as they independently traverse the channels of our collective media space?

13 Different approaches united in one interface, where you can choose what / who to watch, listen to, where you are the mixer.

http://www.randallpacker.com/hyper-participatory-juxtapositions-social-broadcasting/

who

Who are my partners in this experiment? What does it mean to them to collectively conceive, to collaborate, to participate? What happens when you are aggregated? Can facebook also be a social space? Who are those facebookfriends I am streaming for? Do they also have agency? (how when, where) Who are my co-broadcasters? Are we doing something together? How will the local relate to the global? Can I reach someone? What will become of attention? Can I resist the flux, the stream, the spectacle, the show …

Nobody called. It was a quite lonely endeavour. I ended up watching a lot of Curts stream, singing along with it and playing with Daniel and Lisa (without them knowing it). Nevertheless the archive is fantastic – great to see all these different approaches. Here is my broadcast:

Meeting Outranspo

Outranspo (Ouvroir de translation potencial) is a motley group of multilingual translators, writers, researchers and musicians who joyously devote themselves to creative approaches to translation. More information here.

Last Friday they invited me to one of their monthly online meetings.

I did a short introduction to my from estranger to e-stranger book (available as .pdf and as paperback), read some fragments from it and then we went to the ReadingClub.

outranspoBulb

First session : 10 minutes – 3 authors – colors.
Result:
Galvin <3, Mistère and a Volga boatman
http://readingclub.fr/pad/58de383953621f374d000003

(please wait a few sec before pushing the arrow – the timeline needs to be loaded)

Second session : 10 minutes – 3 authors –  no colors.
Result:
Kein …. recul, keine Ablösragung
http://readingclub.fr/pad/58de3a6553621f374d00000

Outranspo discovered how, in this interface, an imposed limited number of characters influences the collective reading / writing experience. In the ReadingClub you have to erase to continue to write – in the ReadingClub you are collaborating and fighting at the same time.

Afterwards Chris remarked: “It changes how we relate to writing in time. Instead of seeing writing as an end result you can see it as a permanent present.”

(: Outranspo told me I am Outranspo by anticipation. :)

visions-logo-large

The piece presented by Annie Abrahams (Distant Feeling(s) #1) continues the research of an artist who challenges the relational utopias attributed to the internet by creating performances which reveal empty yet precious moments, and the banality of interpersonal relations. The performance links Abrahams to two other artists (Daniel Pinheiro & Lisa Parra); from three different locations the three seek to communicate sensations and emotions.

Je ne m’exprime pas sur qu’est-ce que c’est la poésie électronique, numérique etc. Vous êtes écrivains, poètes, étudiants intéressées. Ça me suffit, vous écrirez à partir de votre idée de la poésie. Et puisque vous écrirai ensemble dans / avec un même apparatus nous aurons un mélange d’approches, un métissage, une hybridation. Vous ne serez pas le seul auteur. Il faut inventer des nouvelles langages (plusieurs fois) pour comprendre les possibilités et la radicalité de l’écriture en ligne tel que je la comprends. Extrait du texte de préparation d’Annie Abrahams.

besides, the city is not a tree – #6pmeu

objectsMoney6PMeu besides, the city is not a tree

July 22, 6pm (CET). A  performance by Annie Abrahams and Martina Ruhsam.
In collaboration with OUDEIS, laboratoire pour les arts numériques, électroniques et médiatiques in Le Vigan, France. Live documentation and reactions via https://twitter.com/oudeis_levigan.
Streaming Ivan Chabanaud / mosaika.tv. Duration around 20 min.

A follow-up of Martina and Annie’s Turbulence commission besides, the person I am becoming.

On Object Agency. Collected words and objects – overheard phrases, poetry, academic citations, a piece of concrete, foam, money, a lamp. What if objects ? …

For besides, the person I am becoming, for one month we collected text – overheard phrases, poetry, magazine, academic citations and objects. While preparing we decided the objects should not be personal, not be too beautiful, as ordinary, casual, daily as possible. We wanted the objects to act as much as the words we selected from our collection. This resulted in what Igor Stromajer called a “theory-meditation“. https://vimeo.com/131117816 For besides, the city is not a tree we want to try out another more narrative version of the text collection, to speed up the rhythm and to see what meaning might arise from such a text object layering.

Event in the frame of 6PM Your Local Time Europe: a distributed contemporary art exhibition, taking place all over Europe in art institutions, galleries and artist studios at the same time, and documented online under the same hashtag.

Watch the performance here : http://bram.org/besides. While watching, please post images, text and videos on your Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #6pmeu. The images feed will be transmitted in real time to www.6pmyourlocaltime.com.

6PM Your Local Time is curated by Fabio Paris for Link Art Center. More information http://www.linkartcenter.eu/archives/3580.

Press Release CyPosium – the book

New Book Explores Live Performance on the Internet

A new book exploring the field of cyberformance – live performance events that connect remote participants via the internet – offers a variety of perspectives on this multi-disciplinary live art form.

CyPosium – the book has been edited by Annie Abrahams and Helen Varley Jamieson.
Its contributors are Adriene Jenik, Alan Sondheim, Alberto Vazquez, Annie Abrahams, Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn, Cherry Truluck, Clara Gomes, Helen Varley Jamieson, James Cunningham, Joseph DeLappe, Liz Bryce, Maria Chatzichristodoulou, Maja Delak and Luka Prinčič, Miljana Perić, Rob Myers, Roger Mills, Ruth Catlow, Stephen A. Schrum and Suzon Fuks.

CyPosium – the book is published by Link Editions, in partnership with La Panacée, Montpellier, as part of “Open”, a series of catalogues, essay collections and pamphlets co-published with partner institutions. It is available as a print-on-demand paperback, e-book and downloadable PDF.

CyPosium – the book presents selected material from the CyPosium, a one-day online symposium organised in October 2012 to discuss cyberformance. Artists from a range of backgrounds have experimented in this field for as long as they have had access to the internet, and the CyPosium sought to remember and celebrate some of this ephemeral and pioneering work.The 12-hour event consisted of online presentations and facilitated discussions, and attracted an audience from around the world who engaged in a lively, vibrant real-time conversation.
CyPosium – the book continues and expands on this discussion by presenting texts, chat log excerpts, discussion transcripts, edited email conversations, creative chat excerpt essays and illustrations from the event, along with responses to the event.

CyPosium – the book will be of interest to practitioners, students and researchers of digital and online arts. While its focus is live performance, the contributors hail from a wide range of practice both online and offline, and their writing illustrates the hybrid nature of contemporary arts involving digital technologies. Music, dance, poetry, sound art and the visual arts all feature, as well as entertainment and social practices such as computer games, virtual worlds and online dating. Common themes that emerged during the CyPosium are also present in the book, such as the changing role of the audience; intimacy in the online environment; and mortality. This breadth of form and content reflects the ever-increasing ubiquity of the internet and digital technologies in our daily lives as well as our arts practices.
