Allergen algoritmer

I følge allergikerne har visstnok bjørken allerede gjort sitt inntog i sør-øst, nå er det orr og hassel.

I det minste betyr [orr] ´gull´ på enkelte språk, det er da noe.

Og vakkert grønt blir det jo, vår er nydelig og nå etter endret pollen-aktivitet de senere år, samtidig krevende, da er det desto viktigere med et sunt utgangspunkt.

 

Kunst og miljø

Hvordan blir så kunsten preget av dette, de mange nye allergikernes frembrudd innbefatter selvsagt også kunstsegmentet, det gjenstår å se.

En kunst-konferense av betydning i disse dager kan være Kabelvåg-inititativet den 20.4, på NKFS:

The Infrastructure of Life: Media, Milieu, Ethics

Om: «How does life on a transformed planet challenge artists and art institutions to rethink their responsibilities?»

Videre, som beskrevet, fritt sitert, fra konferensens nettsted:

With contributions from a variety of international artists and researchers such as Ursula Biemann, Nishant Shah, Grace Cheng, etc.

Conference Topic:
As one of the first art forms relying on modern technology, cinema may be seen as paradigmatic for understanding our hybrid existence as biological and technical beings. Cinema is a form of life-writing (a bio-graph). Indeed, many consider cinema the first technology to actually capture in ways never seen before the oscillations of movements, life and time itself.

Today, media are no longer simply modes of communication or representations of life, but rather forms of life. The caring for the infrastructures of life (installations, equipment and conditions) has entered center stage in a turn to ecological issues in the arts. This is evident in new forms of site specific art, bio-art, social ecology, new media experiments, eco-art, the anthroposcene and new ways of curating art events and festivals.

What does “life” and an ethics of art mean in this context? Eugene Thacker contends that “life” can no longer be isolated to biological modes of life. We see a renewed interest for the French term milieu which converges urgently with media, environment, ecology and perhaps art itself. Thinkers from Gilbert Simondon to Rosi Braidotti and Timothy Morton argue that both the notions of the human and nature are set in motion and renegotiated.

Through a variety of artistic and scholarly interventions this one-day symposium wants to address the relevance and potential of new media technologies in the new attention to life.

What’s to be done with images and milieus on a transformed planet?
