INTERNACIONAL CALL FOR PROJECTS
Workshop INTERACTIVOS? in the framework of the exhibition When Process
A collaboration of LABoral and Medialab-Prado of Area de Las Artes del
Ayuntamiento de Madrid.
(new!) CALL DEADLINE: 22nd of February 2010
DATES OF WORKSHOP: 8th to 20th of April 2010
LOCATION: LABoral Centro de Arte y Creacion Industrial, Gijon (Spain)
Call for the presentation of projects to take part in Interactivos? When
Process Becomes Paradigm, as part of the programme for artists and
creators of LABoral Centro de Arte y Creacion Industrial. A maximum of
eight proposals will be selected to be collaboratively developed in the
workshop that will take place prior to the opening of the exhibition
When Process Becomes Paradigm, on April 23rd 2010.
The exhibition When Process Becomes Paradigm reveals a huge shift from a
culture based on the concept of manifestation and the final product
(industrial society) to a culture of process. The Interactivos? workshop
leading up to the exhibition is devoted to the production of artworks
which follow the thesis of the exhibition. As in the exhibition, the
probes and prototypes made during the Interactivos? workshop are
processes that evolve, develop and alter over time. The projects
developed during Interactivos? will be shown in the exhibition.

The 13th Sonic Acts Festival, The Poetics of Space
Amsterdam, Feb 25-28 2010
In previous years the main programme was streamed and you could view material until about 10 hours afterwards. It is likely that they'll do the same.
The programme for this is here:
If any ADA-list member is going let me know. We could meet up.
Sonja van KerkhoffART: http://www.sonjavank.comBLOG:www.sonjavank.blogspot.com DESIGN: www.sonjavank.com/design VIDEOS: www.youtube.com/sonjavank
The title of the thirteenth Sonic Acts Festival, The Poetics of Space,
is derived from the English translation of the book La Poétique de
l’Espace (1958) by the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard. In this
work Bachelard meticulously describes the influence of space and
architecture on humans and implicitly argues for a new type of
architecture based on experience and imagination, an approach that is
not only rooted in science or functionality.
Ever since the emergence of symphonic orchestras, composers and
sound artists have expressly worked with the spatial aspects of sound.
This includes research into the further electronic spatialization of
classical ensemble works and orchestral works as well as researching
acousmatics, a technique whereby sound is distributed through space in
such a way that the original sound source is no longer perceivable.
Besides the development of surround sound and acousmatics, the
electroacoustic improvisation circuit started exploring how musical
space and audio space could be made central during live performances.
Research has also been conducted into more extreme ways of making sound tangible, for example in Jan-Peter Sonntag’s raum-Arbeiten
series, in which he uses standing waves to generate sonic architectural
structures. A more subtle approach to spatialized sound takes the form
of field recordings, soundwalks and acoustic spaces. These various
approaches enable a profound exploration of specific spaces and
In the early 1970s the experimental filmmaker Anthony McCall created
spatial volumes of light, by projecting geometrical figures in hazy
environments, so called solid light films, of which Line Describing a Cone
is the most famous. Another entirely different approach to dealing with
space involves focusing on the human body and senses. The quest for
inner space in the 1960s and 1970s developed in parallel with the
development of space travel and the exploration of outer space. From
the perspective of architecture as experience, domes, developed for
multimedia events, appeal to the imagination. The Pepsi Pavilion at the
1970 World Expo in Osaka, Japan, was an enormous immersive artwork,
with the exterior constantly enshrouded in smoke, and the interior
filled with reflective objects and light sculptures.
Researching spatiality in the arts is the core of the festival. This
involves a number of fundamental questions. How is space defined by a
work of art? What does a viewer or listener experience? How do
technological artworks deal with the visual, auditory and psychological
aspects of spatiality? How has the relationship between technology,
space and architecture developed over the past few centuries? How have
technological developments influenced our perception and representation
of space, and how do we relate to the space that surrounds us?
Sonic Acts The Poetics of Space is entirely dedicated to
the exploration of space in performative and audiovisual art, film,
music and architecture. It examines the importance of physical space in
times of far-reaching technological developments, and the physical and
psychological impact of spatial designs.
The programme comprises four densely filled days and nights and will
provide an extensive overview of recent works and experiments – spatial
audio compositions, audiovisual installations and performances – and
includes relevant historical examples and utopian ideals and dreams
from the twentieth century.
