As a part of re­se­arch, an event, “Dialogue between an Artist and a Scientist” took place from De­cem­ber, 2013 to Ja­nu­a­ry, 2014. It fea­tured three dia­lo­gues on the the­me of mea­su­re­ment with dif­fe­rent fo­cu­ses. In each dia­lo­gue, one ar­tist and one sci­en­tist were in­vi­ted to give a pre­sen­ta­ti­on about their work which will lead into a dis­cus­sion. The aim was to in­ter­sect two dif­fe­rent ap­proa­ches and ide­as (ar­tis­tic and sci­en­ti­fic) about (the am­bi­va­lence of) mea­su­re­ment and mea­sura­bi­li­ty. The first dia­lo­gue was on Po­li­tics on Mea­su­re­ment by Chi­hi­ro Mi­na­to (JP) and So­phie Hou­dart (FR) on Dec. 11, 2013; the se­cond on Epis­te­mo­lo­gy on Mea­su­re­ment by Lucy Powell (UK) and Oxa­na Ti­mo­fee­va (DE/​RU) on Jan. 15, 2014. This third dis­cus­sion was by Patricia T. Clough (USA) and Matt Mullican (DE/​USA) on the Calculative Aesthetic and Unconscious Desire. Clough is a pro­fes­sor of So­cio­lo­gy, Wo­men’s Stu­dies and In­ter­cul­tu­ral Stu­dies at the Gra­dua­te School of the City Uni­ver­si­ty of New York.

DCRLecture: Baruch Gottlieb - Quanta of Sorge, Quanta of Discipline

17.06.2014 Digital Cultures Research Lab DCRLecture Aes­t­he­tics and ethics are con­ven­tio­nal­ly hu­man sca­le. Tra­di­tio­nal­ly the­se two were argued to­ge­ther. In the cur­rent en­vi­ron­ment, howe­ver, suf­fu­sed with ho­mo­ge­nous, ana­es­t­he­tic, so-cal­led “di­gi­tal” in­for­ma­ti­on flows, it seems the old con­ven­tio­nal no­ti­ons of aes­t­he­tics and ethics are con­sum­mate­ly threa­te­ned with ob­so­le­scence. Even when tech­no­lo­gies pro­du­ce pheno­me­na too lar­ge, too small, too fast for our sen­ses, the­se ‘oc­cur’ to us through con­ven­tio­nal phy­si­cal hu­man-sca­le aes­t­he­tics. The­re­fo­re the po­li­ti­cal and ethi­cal im­pli­ca­ti­ons of the “di­gi­tal turn” can be ela­bo­ra­ted through the ana­ly­sis of the ma­te­ri­als on which the­se ap­pe­ar. The­re is no “im­ma­te­ri­al” pro­duc­tion, re­pro­duc­tion or la­bour. NEST-ethics (Tsjal­ling Swier­s­tra & Arie Rip: 2007), points to fun­da­men­tal pro­blems of the me­ans of tech­ni­cal pro­duc­tion which have trou­bled hu­man con­sci­en­ces throughout re­cor­ded his­to­ry. This pre­sen­ta­ti­on, con­cen­tra­ting on the cont­ri­bu­ti­ons of mi­ners to the elec­tro­nics in­dus­try, will ela­bo­ra­te me­thods for ethi­cal ana­ly­sis of di­gi­tal aes­t­he­tics through bio­gra­phi­cal la­bour-mo­dels. Baruch Gottlieb, trai­ned as a filmma­ker at Con­cor­dia Uni­ver­si­ty in Mon­tre­al, is a ca­na­di­an ar­tist working with elec­tro­nic ma­te­ri­als, a wri­ter and cu­ra­tor. He is fel­low of the Vi­lem Flus­ser Ar­chi­ve and mem­ber of the arts collec­tives Te­le­kom­mu­nis­ten, La­bo­ra­toire de De­ber­li­ni­sa­ti­on, and Arts & Eco­no­mics Group. He is foun­der of the SFX Seo­ul se­ries of sound art fes­ti­vals and in­itia­tor of the McLu­mi­na­ti­ons se­ries of vi­deo dis­cus­sions.

EVO by Ora Ito

À la fron­tière de l’hy­pothèse et de l’art con­tem­po­rain, cet ob­­jet hy­bride est basé sur l’ac­­com­­plis­se­­ment du rêve d’en­­fant avec un en­­gage­­ment man­i­feste pour l’écolo­gie. On retrouve dans le vo­­cab­u­laire du de­sign­er, un cou­rant prospec­tif ou com­­ment se pro­­jeter dans le fu­­tur et matérial­is­er l’imag­i­­naire. La créa­­tion de­vient par essence, por­­teuse de valeurs, dou­blée d’une vi­­sion ludique et d’un souf­fle d’em­­pathie, en op­po­si­­tion avec les idées reçues as­­so­­ciées à l’univers de l’au­­to­­mo­­bile, sou­vent trop agres­­sives. In­­spiré par le pre­mi­er chas­­sis au­­to­­porté de Cit­roên et s’ap­puyant sur sa qual­ité de de­sign­er, Ora-ïto s’est in­­ter­rogé sur l’er­­gonomie de l’hab­it­able et du pre­mi­er mo­d­ule mo­­bile. Fidèle à sa dé­­marche de créa­­tion, Il s‘est ac­­ca­­paré les codes, l’ADN et la philo­­so­­phie de cette in­­­dus­trie pour la mod­­er­nis­er avec les pos­si­­bil­ités et les moyens ex­is­­tants. Adossé au pôle recherche et in­­no­­va­­tion du dy­­nas­­tique Cit­roën, il a dévelop­pé une sculp­­ture dé­­calée, sur­pre­­nante et inat­ten­­due in­­té­­grant l’ensem­ble des paramètres et tech­nolo­­gies pro­pres à l’univers du plus avant-gardiste des con­struc­­teurs au­­to­­mo­­biles français, parte­­naire à plusieurs repris­es de la foire in­­ter­­na­­tio­­nale d’art con­tem­po­rain de Paris (FI­AC) Bap­tisée «EVO», cette oeu­vre se qual­i­­fie d’un genre mono­­typ­ique, qui ne pos­sède qu’une seule es­­pèce. Le terme «mu­­ta­­tion» est em­­ployé pour désign­er une mod­­i­­fi­­ca­­tion ir­réver­si­ble de l’in­­­for­­ma­­tion géné­­tique et hérédi­­taire. Si la mu­­ta­­tion ar­rive jusqu’aux cel­lules alors, elle est tran­s­mise aux de­s­­cen­­dants de l’in­­di­vi­­du mu­­tant. Ce change­­ment peut pro­cur­er un avan­­tage sélec­tif. C’est la base du pro­ces­­sus de l‘évo­lu­­tion. Ora-ïto a na­­turelle­­ment imag­iné des mo­d­ules liés au pro­­jet in­i­­tial. Une con­t­i­nu­ité de l’imag­i­­naire perme­t­­tant de mul­ti­­pli­er les ac­­tions nou­velles et les util­i­sa­­tions de l’Évo-mo­­bile As­sim­ilés à des op­­tions à part en­tière, ces «plug­gs» sont in­­dépen­­dants et s’as­sem­b­­lent aux tiges avant et ar­rière du véhicule. Dans le cas où, plusieurs mu­­ta­­tions géné­­tiques s’as­sem­b­­lent, on peut sim­­ple­­ment dire qu’elles par­­ta­­gent un pool géné­­tique an­ces­­tral com­­mun. Pen­sée comme une sculp­­ture, chaque pod est une œu­vre d’art unique et orig­i­­nale qui al­lie le rêve au formel, le passé à la tech­nolo­gie. L’ensem­ble de la dé­­marche ré­­side dans la dé­­cli­­nai­­son des mo­d­ules à plug­ger, et la di­ver­si­­fi­­ca­­tion des élé­­ments préal­able­­ment mutés. L’idée même de tra­­vailler plusieurs en­tités permet à l’ensem­ble des «mu­­ta­­tions géné­­tiques» de dif­­fus­er un mes­sage uni­­versel sur l’évo­lu­­tion de la mo­­bil­ité et pose les bas­es de nou­velles di­rec­­tions jusqu’ici ja­­mais ex­­plorées par l’in­­­dus­trie au­­to­­mo­­bile.

DCRLecture: Sebastian Gießmann - Fluctuating Networks, Un/stable Platforms, And the Internet of Things

14.04.2015 Digital Cultures Research Lab DCR­Lec­tu­re The talk is go­ing to pre­sent some preli­mi­na­ry thoughts on the no­ti­on of “boun­da­ry ob­jects” in di­gi­tal in­fra­struc­tu­res. Se­bas­ti­an Gießmann is go­ing to re­con­sider the re­la­ti­on bet­ween “net­works” and “plat­forms” from a net­work his­to­ri­cal and STS point of view. The “In­ter­net of Things” is ac­tual­ly fair­ly old, if con­fron­ted with ear­lier spe­cial pur­po­se di­gi­tal net­works. But how may we spe­cu­la­te al­re­a­dy on its re­me­dia­ting qua­li­ties in terms of new ob­jec­thood, net­wor­ked agen­cies, and plat­form re­gu­la­ti­ons?

Persönli­che Web­sites, so­zia­le Netz­wer­ke oder Or­tungs­tech­ni­ken sor­gen dafür, dass das alltägli­che Le­ben je­der be­lie­bi­gen Per­son in­zwi­schen auf größtmögli­che Sicht­bar­keit aus­ge­rich­tet wer­den kann. Das Pro­jekt ver­sucht die­se neu­en For­ma­te des Selbst­de­signs auf ihre his­to­ri­schen Ursprünge zurück­zuführen. Denn das In­ter­es­san­te an Face­book, Goog­le+, Xing oder den GPS-Diens­ten der Smart­pho­nes ist, dass Tech­ni­ken, die seit dem späten 18.

Heu­te be­zeich­net das „Pro­fil“ ei­nes Men­schen nicht mehr wie früher das Gut­ach­ten ei­nes Se­ri­enmörders oder ei­nes Wahn­sin­ni­gen, son­dern die Selbst­präsen­ta­ti­on in den so­zia­len Netz­wer­ken. Or­tungs­tech­ni­ken wie­der­um kom­men we­ni­ger bei der po­li­zei­li­chen Ver­fol­gung von Ver­bre­chern zum Ein­satz als viel­mehr zur öffent­li­chen Be­kannt­ga­be des ei­ge­nen Stand­orts im Nacht­le­ben oder der jüngs­ten Jog­ging-Er­fol­ge. In dem Pro­jekt würde ich eine präzise Lektüre von Face­book, 4S­qua­re und an­de­ren Web­sites mit we­sent­lich älte­ren Tex­ten zur Kon­sti­tu­ie­rung des Selbst aus den Ge­bie­ten der Phi­lo­so­phie, An­thro­po­lo­gie, Psych­ia­trie und Kri­mi­na­lis­tik kreu­zen. Da­bei würde es un­ter an­de­rem um die Er­kennt­nis ge­hen, wie ra­di­kal sich der Be­griff der „Er­fas­sung“ in der jüngs­ten Ver­gan­gen­heit geändert hat. Dass eine dif­fu­se Außen­welt Kennt­nis von den ei­ge­nen Le­bens­krei­sen ge­win­nen könnte, wur­de bis in die 1980er Jah­re hin­ein mit teil­wei­se pa­ra­no­ider En­er­gie bekämpft (sie­he Volkszählung, ma­schi­nen­les­ba­rer Aus­weis etc.). Heu­te hat sich die Angst vor Er­fas­sung eher in eine Lust an der Öffent­lich­keit ver­wan­delt; „Big Bro­ther“ ob­ser­viert nicht mehr De­lin­quen­ten, son­dern künf­ti­ge Fern­seh­stars. Auf­ga­be des Pro­jekts wäre es also, Klar­heit über die Ef­fek­te und Kon­se­quen­zen des Selbst­de­signs zu er­lan­gen – eine Pra­xis, die in be­acht­li­chem Tem­po ein neu­es Men­schen­bild her­vor­ge­bracht hat.
