3G Constallations #10 + méthodologie

One year ago we: the group 3G(enerations) Alix Desaubliaux, Pascale Barret and Annie Abrahams, started a research project called Constallations. Using challenges and surprises, we defied each other in nine sessions of what Annie called contemporary net art, Pascale a non-binary inclusive laboratory and Alix performative & collaborative explorations.

ISELP, Institut d’Art Contemporain, invited 3G to come to Brussels for their 10th, this time real-life, session.
Saturday, Mai 25, 16h you are welcome to meet the three artists and Sandra Bébié-Valérian of OUDEIS at the Boulevard de Waterloo in Brussels.
Sandra will give a short talk where she analyses the project in the frame of OUDEIS’ Autorama project. Pascale, Alix and Annie will present their recently written Methodology of Constallations* and will try to translate it’s essence to the real space of the exhibition Waiting to blossom *Constallations by Pascale Barret.
Could be an object, a performance, a reading, a text, an installation …. or a mix of all this.

Constallations is devoid of a goal and has no predetermined path. Constallations is what we are when we give up our personal objectives and, when, based on our own history and skills, we tackle a challenge prepared by one of the group.
Constallations is made of travels through things one doesn’t control, of jumps in the void. Constallations is an exploration full of unexpected discoveries.

Constallations is a learning tool / a practice radically open to everything.
Constallations is a concrete utopia – on a small scale, and temporary, it must be said – but it is, and so carries a hope for a different society.
It’s a perspective.
Constallations is a path, an adventure, a chemistry, a soup that upsets habits and creates links.

* The Methodology of Constallations will also be available in English and French on the Constallations website after the 25th.

The Laboratory of Networked Behavior

thirdSpaceInterview

After my Networked Conversations interview with Randall Packer on the 13th of Mai, Randall wrote an interesting article called The Laboratory of Networked Behavior.

“Only through questioning, probing, getting dirty, and embracing the messiness of online behavior, can we even come close to any kind of understanding of what lies ahead of us in our mediated lives. That is why the work of Annie Abrahams, along with the other intrepid artist-investigators of the Net, is so crucial to our survival amidst the encroachment of the telematic embrace.”

And here is the recording of the interview : performance as reality – performance is reality.

And a preparation for the talk .pdf (very elaborate overview of my online performance history – not complete though)

An (e)stranger is invisible, exotic, unidentifiable, rude, hybrid, 
blurry, deformed, subversive, incomprehensible, complex, pliable, lonely, abject, harder and more fragile at the same time … they are more resilient, more inventive, know how to protect themselves, are good observers, look around a lot, see and ask questions about things that seem to be selfevident …

INTERACTIVE DIGITAL MEDIA ON STAGE
From November 17 to 25, 2008.
Public presentation: November 22 at 6pm, L’Animal a l’esquena.

As part of our activities aimed at promoting the theory and practice of the use of interactive digital media in performance projects, NU2‘s is organising a new international lab for artists from various disciplines interested in sharing, analysing and developing ideas based on projects currently in progress.
Participants must be working on a project or want to develop a system that implies working with the body and the performer’s movement, regardless of whether the artist or group comes from the field of choreography, music or visual arts. A team of highly experienced professionals, programmers, choreographers and stage directors will help participants in their research and work towards bringing the projects to fruition.
The Laboratory is organised by NU2’s in collaboration with l’Animal a l’esquena, in the framework of the Euroregional project Corpus Media.
Registration is free, and the organisers will cover the costs of accommodation and meals for participating artists. Interested artists should contact NU2’s by sending an email to info@nu2s.org, and a decision will be made based on the project and previous work by the artist’s. Information.

Les études fait à cette occasion ont été présentées au festival IDN à El Mercat de les Flors, Barcelona le 9 et le 10 janvier 2009.
Le 11 juin 2009 le projet sera présenté dans the Thursday Club Event organisé par Goldsmiths Digital Studios, Londen.

Have a look at other images and videos of the laboratory.
