WATERWHEEL – 2nd LAB on the TAP – 27-29 April & 3-6May

If you want to participate, please check & tick the sessions on this doodle – Remember to change the poll to your timezone, then check the times you are available (3 sessions if possible, or more). If there are none, please suggest other times.

This 2nd lab will happen on the TAP with acces only to webcams (no mixing media yet), so we can be only 6 participants per session (for this lab). Very exciting: there are functions that I never saw before: webcams images can be dragged, resized, flipped vertically and horizontally, as well as rotated!

THIS IS FIRST WEEK DOCUMENTATION on the waterwheel blog


WATERWHEEL – first lab/residency about to begin!

Since the announcement of the project, responses show a real interest for the topic, the metaphor & the platform.  Exciting!  Propositions from curators, research, involvement of university students, info forwarded to scientists,etc.   We had a bit of delay in the platform development, as I came back end of the year with swine flu, and Inkahoots studio was out of service for 2 weeks because of the floods. So we will work with a very basic version of the platform, which is maybe more open at this stage for your feedback & advice on its functionalities.

We started a conversation between lab & online participants (below full list of participants), as well as interested people, on a:  Facebook group and a Blog.

ABOUT THE WATERWHEEL PROJECT

Following a year of preparation, 2011: The Waterwheel starts turning! Welcome!  Be a part of this new online collaborative space without borders: from teachers to students, performers to scientists, producers, programmers, curators, visual artists, composers, activists and everyone in between. All ages welcome!

The upcoming Waterwheel project revolves around WATER as a topic and a metaphor – what people want to share, say, or debate about this fundamental element.  It includes:
The Waterwheel
an interactive website
The Tap
– an online performance & collaborative venue
Fountains
– outcomes that well up from the project

The Waterwheel interactive website will give you the power to collaborate, explore ideas, research and gather feedback by uploading and sharing media about water: images, video, music, text or sound.

The Tap online performance & collaborative venue will be accessible by audience and performers with just a click, no download needed, and will be free. ‘Live’ performers from various locations will interact with audiences in real time using webcams, media from The Waterwheel and drawing tools. Audience can participate online through a chat facility or directly with the ‘live’ performers on site. From February, basic versions of The Waterwheel and The Tap will be available, you can be involved and follow the developments by uploading your media, exploring the online venue, and giving your feedback.

Fountains will be outcomes that anyone is free to initiate and will be triggered by interactions on The Waterwheel.  A Fountain could be a book, a performance, an exhibition, a community project, a multi-generational exchange, a concert or an installation festival – let your imagination steer the way. These Fountains will be mapped out on the website, so you can see what The Waterwheel is powering. Throughout 2011, workshop residencies will develop one Fountain which is an installation performance, testing the website and the online venue. The first residency, which runs 14 Feb – 6 March, is based in Brisbane and open for your participation online or on site.  Please let us know if you are interested.

Turn the wheel your way and pass on this message to your pool of people! Welcome to translate it into your language.  For more information about any part of the project and how to contribute/participate, please email.

This project is initiated by Suzon Fuks, an Australia Council for the Arts Fellow, in collaboration with IGNEOUS & INKAHOOTS, and assisted by Arts Queensland, Ausdance Queensland, Youth Arts Queensland, & the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Arts (Brisbane).

workshop at MES56, Yogyakarta

Following the artist talk and installation performance at Tembi contemporary gallery, I gave a 2day-workshop to local artists, at MES56 Gallery, on networked creative collaboration, sharing info about internet platforms, tools and  processes.
Humour, focus and motivation contributed to overcome language difficulties.  Different priorities, variable accesses to internet and speed of connection (slow at times!) were interesting challenges, reinforcing the demand of being flexible to scale/re-scale/adjust schedule and content. Thanks to MES56! Sip!  – photos by Wimo, Akiq, Dolly and Andre –
exhibition on gallery walls:’Contact Lens’ by Victor Zwiers


at Tembi contemporary Gallery, Yogyakarta

Visits to artists encouraged me to formulate better and further the concept of VIRTUAL FOUNTAINS and what networked performance means. It also showed me that if the project is based on contribution and collaboration, it needed to be done in stages.
So Scotia and I made an installation performance at Tembi contemporary Gallery, followed by an artist talk and few days later I gave a workshop (next post).

The installation performance was closely connected to the gallery’s two ponds. Beautiful art space!  Plastic bags full of water hung over the ponds (people use them here for drinking). Two of them contained a goldfish.  There were 2 simultaneous projections on the walls behind the ponds:

video of village people, grouped by age, drinking, mixed with images of waterfalls (from plenty to scarcity), ending on an image of drought
– animated loop of Scotia and I drinking from plastic bottles, using internet platform Upstage, with participation of Marlena Corcoran as a remote performer in Munich, performing/responding to me in real time. When the water diminished in the other projection, a wall of plastic bottles gradually covered the frame.

A soundtrack built up, consisting of a common ‘choosing’ rhyme (‘I love him, I love him not’ in 3 languages: Bahasa Indonesian, English and French) layered in crescendo and gave rhythm to Scotia for developing a movement variation inspired by water usage and then, piercing the bags (with same idea of plucking petals from a daisy) creating waterfalls from each into the ponds. This continued until only the bags with the fish remained.
At this point, 2 fish appeared on UpStage saying ‘I love the world, I love it not’ and developed a short ‘on-line performance’. Scotia released the fish into the ponds and piled up all plastic bags.

The cartoonesque fish on UpStage then introduced my artist talk about VIRTUAL FOUNTAINS. – photos by Elly Mangunsong -


trials on Selfworld

Since March, am doing some trials on Selfworld with ActiveLayers (with Cherry in London and Liz in Kawerau (NZ) and James and I in Brisbane).  Ivan Chabanaud comes sometimes to our meetings to tweak the server and our room, and in some pix, played Gulliver demonstrating how to use the encoder as a moving backdrop….
We are working on theme of water…made few movies, gather some images and songs, and try to find scores that we can do online.
The use of multi-video streams is powerful,  opening up a lot of possibilities but it needs a lot of tweaking and patience, above all for the sound.  But somehow being able to see each other is a big reward which gives us all the patience needed!
It gives definitely another space to ‘perform’, a space of intimacy, closeness, macro details, computer’s immediate surrounding, but also outdoors, public spaces, landscapes…
In Yogyakarta (Indonesia), we bought a 3G stick, and continued our trials  from here, just beside a paddy field.
James went to internet cafes/parlours to have a separate connection.  He could not put his own laptop on the network, and had to use the local computer/webcam….which once was pretty fuzzy (because of fungi growing with humidity)… but other time, were quite interesting cause not in-built in the computer, giving freedom to film around and have various angles.
Because we didn’t have access to printers, we start using other devices with mini-screens to show images (iphone & digital camera), sketches, little objects, using also paper that we were tearing on the spot to shapes… great immediacy, interesting aesthetic, fine movements of hands… to be continued!


Backyard Dances & Electrosmog Festival

James and I participated in BACKYARD DANCES, an on-line community dance which tempted to bring the ordinary and the local to the global stage through a collection of backyard video streams performed by Becca Wood and dancers in Berlin, Brisbane, Oklahoma, Taipa, Auckland City and Auckland Waterview. These locations were linked by the same sound score made of a mash up of backyard videos sent by contributors responding to a call for participation.

Backyard Dances was made for the Electrosmog Festival performance/events program.
ElectroSmog is a new festival that revolves around the concept Sustainable Immobility. The festival introduced and explored this concept in theory and practice. With Sustainable Immobility they refer to a critique of current systems of hyper mobility of people and products in travel and transport, and their ecological unsustainability.


Part 2, Presentation Dec 09


After 3 months of my fellowship, I presented to peers what I have done and what I am preparing : the first part of the presentation was about ‘Screendance’, second part about ‘Networked Performance’. I delivered the presentation twice:
– at Igneous studio with 18 people, on December 6, 2009 – download transcript
– online with 12 people from 3 different time zones(!), on December 13, 2009, on UpStage and using audio on USTREAM. Download the log.
Below is the video of the 2nd part of the online presentation about ‘Networked Performance’. For the 1st part of the online presentation about ‘Screendance’, see this post (screendance category).
The sessions were followed by a critical response process facilitated by James Cunningham.

KEDJA Oslo + TELE-PLATEAUS

KEDJA09-body-data-spaceIn October 09, KEDJA Oslo encounter was focusing on Dance and New Media.

Kedja from Creation Editor on Vimeo.

TELE-PLATEAUS event this morning 6 Dec 09, at 5am (Oz time) in the context of Cynetart Festival in Dresden. Aim of Tele-Plateaus: to establish a permanent network allowing for direct audiovisual real-time interactions between similarly configured public sites and performance stages across Europe. Tele-Plateaus is composed, controlled and structured by movements of people from different cities. Within these networked stages and sites people from Dresden, Madrid, Norrköping, and Prague (among the first connected cities) can dance and play together. They can simultaneously create pictures, sounds, and light effects by means of their own movements without operating any additional interfaces. The shared virtual hyper-site is based on the generation of data that is available for processing to all computers within a common network. Movement parameters (speed, spatial position, etc.) are captured and digitalised by camera-based motion system and exchanged between computers at distant locations with a technically similar configuration.
DANCETECH was producing the streaming of the event and diffusing interviews about the processes experienced by artists participating at the preparation of the event.
(I found some interviews posted afterwards here)
