A few events coming up worth noting. This friday 8pm – midnight there will be a rebroadcast of Future Archaeology‘s audience participatory performance of Ohm at the Index Festival. You can catch it on TV Time Warner channel 57 or join us at the rebroadcast party (same time) at Silvershed 119 w. 25th st. PH in Manhattan.

Sept. 1st at noon I will be discussing my work at an art salon benefit for Grounds for Sculpture in NJ. The tickets are $60 and include a fancy lunch and glass of wine. Call (609) 586-0616 for tickets. This is also pretty much your last chance to see Totem (who has been evolving all summer) installed at Grounds for Sculpture as the exhibit comes down shortly after on 9/18.

 

This week my collaborative Future Archaeology will be featured in the Index Festival.

First we will be participating in the Make Ready panel August 17th 7-8pm at Harvestworks.

Beginning to post some documentation here.

Hoping to get more images and a documentary video from Jaaga soon…

 

Come out to Jaaga July 1st at 7:30pm!

Jaaga Dhvani is a new work of Sound Art by New York-based artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg.

Jaaga Dhvani is quite literally the voice of a space – a sonic representation of the Jaaga art center imagined as a living corporeal entity.

Jaaga Dhvani is also a voice from space – the space around us in both our immediate and vast conceptions of place; an exploration of Jaaga , Bangalore, and India more generally as a site of collision between the global and the local, the high and the low tech, the very old and the very new.

Here are a few verses the algorithm generated today. I especially enjoy the first one as two of my good friends are getting married today in California (congrats Dan and Ellie! sorry it’s not more upbeat…)

joyously the bridal garland
perish too thy hated name and
warlike steed and throw the dart
dear in joy and part in silence

and their faces ran with blood of
earth loving sons your virtues prove
arjun and on kuru’s king and
lost him to restore the kingdom

larger stouter is this kuru
bowing to her weeping sister
bright celestial cars in concourse
lightninglike it came on karna

render honour to thy king and
lost himself and all was still and
torn not the deep and deadly sound
heaving sobs convulsed her bosom

Friday, July 15th - August 8th

In a city constantly moving forward and erasing its relationship with the past, Scenes from Last Week: W. 14th St. seeks to re-insert the past into the present. The work is a public art installation that uses video surveillance cameras and monitors in two storefronts directly across the street from each other on 218 and 225 14th st. Moniotrs facing the street show the current view the and the view from seven the previous days synchronized to the current moment, giving the passerby the chance to see the  recent history of where they are standing. The work creates a perceptual trip wire into the past, intended to reawaken our senses to the randomness and ritual in our daily environment.

Opening: Friday, July 15th from 6 - 8 pm @ 225 14th St. - Rags-A-GoGo

Art in Odd Places is a collaborative partner for this project.

Project Created: 
March 2011
 

Invisible audiences drive the success and failures of mediated social life. Before we rush to further network our private and public spaces we should consider this radical cultural shift. Some lessons can be learned from a recent ambiguous website and an old ambiguous book.
