This Sunday morning at Varia: Read & Repair - The Automated Body feat. Angeliki Diakrousi

The text selection for Read in May was made by @anglk whose work engages critically with notions of listening and dynamics of public realms.

In this edition of Read participants will be invited to pick a text, read in groups, breath and share their readings through an (un)automated persona. We discuss automations of the human body, that surpasses the idea that 'human' differs from the other animals in that it uses tools. They are;

REPAIR with Yun Lee.

Recently they have been working on the “School of Camouflage”, a research project looking at camouflage practices in visual, movement, and social cultural contexts. These practices include passing, deception, misdirection and masking.

In this workshop, participants will be exploring principles of camouflage and deception, how they are effectively used in contexts including information warfare, how we can sense them, and how we can repurpose them in our own practices as artists/designers/technologists.  

drop us an email at info@varia.zone if you would like to join.

This sunday we are coming out of here - stream.vvvvvvaria.org/ - and into your earssss for Read & Repair with @ccl and sonic help from @anglk and @suroh

We will absorb the works of electronic music composer Maryanne Amacher, including her proposition for a media opera entitled Intelligent Life. Existing only as a storyboard, Intelligent Life was an "opera consisting of nine one-hour-long episodes designed for television broadcast with in-home FM simulcast. As of yet, it has not been taped, recorded, or broadcast."

We will then use the work and research of artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan to reconsider the politics of listening. We want to consider developments of surveillance and machine listening, in combination with Amacher's imaginatory potential for how artificial intelligence could transform our sensorial ability to connect to the world around us.

[ image shows a sketch found inside the storyboard of the media opera, including an ear with a wavy line going through it and musical notes on the side. A hand pressing buttons on a television, a landscape image with lines beaming out of it, and a square with an arrow and lots of wavey lines being directed at two circles. ]

Date: Sunday, 28th March 2021
Time: 11:00am-13:00pm CET

@manetta and I have been working on a small online module about as digital for @cc_utrecht, where the latter is a term that draws attention to stress points in infrastructures and stimulates thinking about how to intervene. We welcome feedback and thoughts on it, it is a work that will continue in different ways.
