Afterwards Allison Parrish @aparrish will conduct the workshop 'Creative with , and Mulch':
We know computers best as tools for analyzing , composing text, and "correcting" text through grammar and spell check. But computation is an equally useful tool for pulling language apart, grinding it down, and making it unfamiliar. This workshop offers a short series of hands-on tutorials with code that facilitates destructive and defamiliarizing operations on text(...)

~Weedweavers~

curated for the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival in the UK featuring

Angeliki Diakrousi, mariëlle verdijk, and Laura Spark.

Two Gatherings, as part of Weedweavers, took place in June, where participants, artists, botanists and archaeologists came together to share memories, knowledge and reflections about water, beachcombing and algae explorations.

This performance will be an hour-long live improvisation using the materials from these Gatherings. Introducing the idea of an algaerithm, Laura, Angeliki and mariëlle collaborate in creating a live algal oracle in which they weave soundbites, spoken word and visuals into an ambiguous, emergent and intuitive narrative.

No booking needed.

On Wednesday I will present Radio-active Monstrosities at the 6th Web Audio Conference () that will be held online from the 5th to the 7th of July 2021 at a Virtual Campus of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona.

more about the work at WAC: radioactive.w-i-t-m.net/wac202

Radio-active Monstrosities is a interface that addresses ways of listening to collective voices and female-sounding voices that are perceived as inappropriate or annoying. Visitors of the page are invited to record themselves and choose a type of distortion to participate in, forming new imaginaries around technologically-mediated voices, which through their technical ‘monstrosity’, can reveal other forms of speech. The interface uses Web Audio API to distort vocal contributions into 4 different types of distortion: ‘collective’, ‘echo’, ‘lowpitch’ and ‘lowpass’.

WAC is an international conference dedicated to web audio technologies and applications. The conference addresses academic research, artistic research, development, design, evaluation and standards concerned with emerging audio-related web technologies such as Web Audio API, Web RTC, WebSockets and Javascript.

Platform Alliances #1 Tools 

What are the tools for alliances? 
How do we establish solidarity networks? 
Can a model of practice and form of governance be considered as a work of art?  
And what does it mean to publish/make public in a platform framework?

The first session of Platform Alliances presents a conversation on tools for tactics and strategies of facilitation and organisation. 
Tuesday 22nd of June, at 17:00 pm, live broadcasted from fanfare, shared via the trans-departmental initiative PUB, joined by the collective infrastructure, Varia, and the student-run KABK initiative, Mushroom radio. 

Platform Alliances is a growing initiative by Radio EE and fanfare; the program aims to discuss and share the strategies and challenges of current and future student-initiated platforms. It aims to create space and place for alliances amongst similar initiatives across The Netherlands and abroad. This radio broadcast presents a first step of opening up a dialogue and larger-scale platform alliance scheme. We welcome critique, ideas, and future collaborators.

This event was commissioned by the board of extracurricular platforms at Rietveld/Sandberg as part of Future Practices. After the live broadcast, the conversation will be available on pub.Sandberg.nl & extraintra.nl

Together with mariëlle verdijk I was invited by New Emergences (newemergences.com/) to develop a project for the festival Abandon Normal Devices in Liverpool (online) (andfestival.org.uk). We are preparing Weedweavers, in search of an AlgaeRithm. explore feminist and non-traditional science practices, myths, recipes and stories of ports through organisms like algae.

In two Gatherings (18 & 25 June) we will collect and share stories, rituals, recordings and drawings with everyone who wants to join! In the end we will weave together a net of experiences and visualise it together with Laura Spark. On 9th of July there will be a final live performance.

For the first Gathering we have invited Geraldine Reid (Lead Curator of Botany, Geology & Science at Liverpool’s World Museum) and community gardener Andrea Ku to share their knowledge and experiences regarding seaweed, beach combing and collectivity. marielle will introduce us to the recipe of 'breathing spheres'.

For the second gathering Andrea Ku will join us again together with Emma Marsh, an archaeology student. Gabrielle Barros Martins, a performer and therapist, will guide us in a breathing meditation.

Before container-ships leave port, lashers secure the containers using heavy metal bars. They are the last port workers to do such dangerous jobs surrounded by self-driven vehicles and remotely operated cranes. Each body tells its own story: from grieving for a colleague who died on the job to just keep going. Stowaway animals appear as visions of a world closer to nature.
