N e w P u b l i c a t i o n: Performance, Technology, and Science by Johannes Birringer


This ground-breaking work of scholarship explores convergences
between performance and science through an investigation of new
technologies that drive computer-mediated, interactive art. In
tracing the evolution of digital performance within a particular
history of engineering and theatre that now expands to a wide range
of practices in dance, design, architecture, fashion, games, music,
robotics, telematic performance, and "post-production"-theatre, the
author focuses on interactive performance, installation and Internet
art.

Internationally known practitioners and their works are introduced
to formulate provocative ideas on computation, complexity, emergence
and self-organizing systems in contemporary peformance which are
inspired by biology and biotechnology. Wide-ranging and richly
illustrated essays uncover shifts that have occurred globally in the
aesthetic understanding of performance within computer-augmented
virtual and networked environments.

The work of key artists, theatre/dance companies, and laboratories
demonstrates how scientific concepts have influenced digital
performance, and how performance relates to neuroscience, biology
and the life sciences. Challenging common assumptions about
embodiment and the digital, this study addresses how artists use
artificial intelligence, machine learning, and sensing technologies
not only to enhance the range of expression and visualization, but
to bridge the gap between the work and its user.

WE LIVE WITHIN AN UNSTABLE LANDSCAPE

This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.

We are in a transitional phase and refocusing the network with a broader interdisciplinary framework. It will reflect a contemporary  community interacting and embedded  unstablelandscape.

This network is maintained and administrated by Marlon Barrios Solano as an independent art/curatorial/social innovation project.
