B-field

filtered B-field VLF recordings with loop antenna, outside
Eyebeam on West 21st Street. most of what you hear is 60-cycle
that's so strong it won't filter out; on occasion, in vlfeye2
and 4 for example, other signals seem to come through.

VLF is always mysterious, nothing more so than B-field!

we're all being magnetized, hopefully irregularly!

 

Join us Tuesday, January 3 at 6:30pm for a talk by Drew Hemment on FutureEverything's Open Data Cities Lab and DataGM - the Greater Manchester Datastore, a partnership between FutureEverything and Trafford Council in Greater Manchester.

 

stalled

B train stalled at 4th street station. it approached slowly,
less than walking speed, then stopped in the tunnel. i couldn't
help it, i thought immediately of terrorism, take-overs, fury,
hostages. we never found out what went on. but the voice was
there, filling the station, and it wasn't comforting. later i
took another B coming in front of it, on another line, sparking
all the while. i got off at Dekalb and waited for an R. two Qs
came and went and i waited. the R never came. i took another B
to Atlantic. what happened.

walking all the way around the preserve, small fall flowers,
millipede, coots in the distance, dreaming of such immensity,
beauty

memorial for my father, third day


the emptied house which is never empty
the scars sleeping for decades,
of literacy and legibility, i read
everything into signs, signs swallowed
signs, and

everything contained, was contained
mold and seepage made breathing difficult
the house lay in low iambic

the house flexed with flood and mining
with repairs curled round itself,
and so emptied, this annihilation will
never return, hurtful sensibilities
of fossils where sleeping and crawling down,
stairs returning and inscribing motion
which would be the telling of it, the framing,
some might say the last of it, some might say
framing unlasts

 

Dead Drops in NYC—A Video How-To
Tuesday January 25, 2011
IMG_0421-650x433

As part of his EYEBEAM residency in NYC, Aram Bartholl created "Dead Drops," an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space where USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space.

This is an interesting project that is the intersection of street art and technology, using public space as a way to communicate in a specific way with others.
