Arts Building 166 (Performance Lab)
UC Riverside

Description: The merging of virtual and real audio spaces through the proliferation of digital tools has dramatically impacted praxis for a number of artistic genres. This performance/lecture brings together musicians and dancers in an improvisational installation that explores the extension of live performance through digital processing. Featuring music, dance and video, the work will also deploy a number of digital performers, including programmed audio improvisers (in max), digital cameras, even an Ipod. The performers will discuss the installation and the broader impact that digital technologies have had on their own artistic practice.

Ramie Becker is a Ph.D student in Dance History and Theory.
Renee Coulombe is an Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition.
Maria de los Angeles "Cuca" Esteves is first year MFA student in Creative writing and Writing for the Performing Arts.

Bookchin talk 1.25.05

Gravedigging and the Internet - A Proposal for the Future
A talk by Natalie Bookchin
Co-Director of the Photography and Media Program, CalArts.

Time: 12:30 pm-2:30 pm, Wednesday, January 12, 2005
Location: Humanities 1500

In this talk, Natalie Bookchin will examine debates about the life and death of net art, framing it within broader conversations proposing the ends of the avant-garde and of utopia in art, political thought, and early visions of the Internet. Attempting to resurrect some supposedly "dead ideas", this talk will offer a proposal for a speculative social network for the future, where visual artists use the Internet to gain more control of the reception and circulation of their work and ideas. In imagining this network, Bookchin will cull from grassroots strategies used and proposed by net art, alternative music, and blogging independent journalists.

Based in L.A., Natalie Bookchin has been creating online projects since 1997. She recently worked with political theorist Jackie Stevens to initiate and develop the first phase of the online project agoraXchange , an online collaboration for imagining and building a massive multiplayer online game that offers a tangible political alternative to our current world order. She is known internationally for her online art work, including a project entitled Metapet , a parody of capitalist productivity in which the player must maximize the profit margin without alienating the Metapet worker. She is a recent recipient of a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship and a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her work is exhibited at institutions world-wide including PS1, Mass MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, KunstWerke, Berlin, the Generali Foundation, Vienna, the Walker Art Center, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Shedhale in Zurich.
