(Apologies for any cross posting)
We take great pleasure in announcing that The Artvertiser source code is now
(finally) available, licensed under the GPLv3.
The Artvertiser is an Improved Reality platform, designed for the live
substitution of advertisements in a video stream with alternative 2D content.
The code was initially developed by Julian Oliver before being significantly
improved by Damian Stewart.
A typical application of The Artvertiser at work might be the Product
Replacement of street billboards with 2D art using a laptop with webcam or
camera-enabled mobile device. You might also want to have your own personal
exhibition in the Louvre, substituting well known paintings with your own
creations and inviting others to enjoy the show.
Counter-propaganda operations are also well suited to the platform, like
changing the imagery of a disliked political campaigner before uploading the
recorded result for all to see. Alternatively, it can be used to product replace
planar images in archival video, like a HollyWood movie or TV advert, using
popular films as an 'exhibition surface'.
You can see a couple of examples of The Artvertiser at work using our own
specially crafted digital binoculars, The Billboard Interception Unit, on the
The entire project tree exists as a git repository, cloned like so on your local
git clone git://repo.or.cz/The-Artvertiser.git
The code should currently build on any modern Linux-based OS with the addition
of a couple of dependencies and - thanks to Damian - should also compile on OS X
with the correct prior tweaks in place. See the README file in the top-level
directory for more information.
A special 'mob' user has been set up allowing complete Read/Write access for
anyone at all. Once you've cloned the repository as above, just:
git checkout mob
.. to move to the mob branch. It's all yours!
We look forward to your improvements, forks, derivations and vandalisms.
Happy (urban) hacking!

For the first exhibition of DEATH BE KIND, curators Claire Lambe and
Elvis Richardson present The Memorial - an elaborate display-case
housing a collection of beloved objects that once belonged to a
deceased relative, friend, acquaintance or lover chosen by over 100
people from all walks of life who have kindly participated in this
The Memorial presentation is reminiscent of the small private museum
and employs the language of display to create symbiotic dialogues
through the relational placement of the works. A complex display case
has been constructed so as to elevate the importance and meanings of
the beloved objects and gently navigate the viewers experience of the
The Memorial retells the stories behind the objects that we keep to
evoke memory of the deceased, how these objects maintain ongoing
relationship with the dead, and how these material possessions remain
important in memory making. Each object has been documented and texts
collected from the holder about their object to create a catalogue of
texts that caption the objects personal meanings in a zine.
Zine also features writers Morgan Fayle, David Luker and Ruth Learner
and artist Marina Lutz.
Please find below some information about our current call for entries for
the next Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid that will take place

This past Thursday at W2, Vancouver's Community Media Arts Society <http://www.creativetechnology.org/
>, I had the pleasure to announce, in collaboration with the Mozilla
Foundation, the creation and launch of the new 'Open Web Award 2011' -
a special third platform for creative excellence alongside the
'transmediale Award 2011' and the 'Vilém Flusser Theory Award 2011'.
The 'Open Web Award' is a new platform aimed at highlighting and
promoting radical, creative and innovative art works and projects that:
- are on the web and about the web
- use open source, free, libre or other non-proprietary technology
(may they be soft- or hardware)
- incite participation and/or collaboration
They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the
potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of
open web issues, and those employing the creative use of HTML5 and
other developing 'open' technologies will be given specific
consideration. The point is to play with both the idea and materiality
of the (open) web in ways that spark new thinking and practice.
The winner(s) of the 'Open Web Award 2011' will receive a total prize
of 5000 EUR, and be given the opportunity to have 'supported' status
on Drumbeat <http://drumbeat.org/>. Beyond the specific 'Open Web
Award' criteria, the same rules, conditions and application procedures
apply as the 'transmediale Award 2011' <http://www.transmediale.de/en/awards2011
The Deadline for Entries to the transmediale 'Open Web Award 2011' is
also July 31, 2010 (2400 CEST / UST+2)!

"The Avant Garde Doesn't Give Up" - Asger Jorn
'Increase your necessity so that you may increase your perception.' --13th century Persian Sufi mystic Rumi, quoted by Bill Violaâ€¨
A Light at the End of the Tunnel is an epic video art trilogy about the human condition, including seminal works by 30 international emerging artists chosen based on an open call from over 200 submissions.
The concept of life, death and rebirth has followed humanity through the ages as the self and the collective whole passes through time, creating a relative chain of events that could be called the history of universal human experience. Its through all of these varying histories, and a perpetual creative avant garde that continue to seek a move vivid understanding of the interconnectedness of life. Our great quest to solve the questions of our age could be exemplified by one of humankinds greatest achievements at CERN Labs, Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, the worlds largest machine. As the scientists at CERN continue to probe the most fundamental questions of life and the origins of the universe, we seek artists that are asking similar big questions in their creative practice and use their creativity to reveal the world in new and unexpected ways.
Why are we here? What does it all mean? How is it all relative to art in the 21st century?
A Light at the End of the Tunnel videos will also be premeiring on the internet at www.babelgum.com/newvideoart . A new intitative in collaboration with the Scope Foundatio, Babelgum and PAM.

WHAT: this project aims to find groundbreaking initiatives for new models of
ecologically sustainable living both in and for Berlin with partners
from around the world. Neighborhood gardens, urban beekeepers, carrot
mobs, Wiki woods or climate pirates on Berlin's Spree River.
In a two-phase selection process, applicants who are selected in the
initial round will be asked to submit supplementary material (business
plan, information about relevant previous projects, project planning,
etc.) at the beginning of July 2010. An international jury made up of
representatives from the realms of art, culture, media, politics,
science and civil society will confer on which projects should receive
funding by august 2010. The successful participants will be invited to
present their projects at a kick-off workshop 7 - 9 September at the
House of World Cultures in Berlin. The chosen projects will be given
conceptual and financial support up through the theme festival to be
held in June 2011.
PAYMENTS: up to E20,000 will be awarded to projects that
convincingly bring together culture and sustainability and defy odds to
put new ecological models for thought and action to the test for the

Oliver of the Sky - Favourite This
18 June - 12 July
Opening reception: 6pm Friday 18 June
HSP 84 Lichfield Street Christchurch
Setting off by ghosting the trending and firsting evaluative economies of
social networking sites like Tumblr and Flickr, ‘Favourite This’ re-blogs
clashed maxims and proverbial visual motifs from the World Wide Web,
re-ordering and -rendering them on the critical and hierarchical planes of a
painting show and a larger, sculptural installation.
Both a celebration and a critique of its screened and interactive
iconographies, the works catechize the spatial layouts and normalizing
chiaroscuros of both server and offline space, merging and juxtaposing
outdoor landscape and architectural features with the structural elements of
webpages. In an extraction of their pixilated incarnations, virtual imagery
is depicted with fake-digital precision, while remaining open to the errance
of the hand-made and accidental. Conversely, elemental forms and otherwise
radical iconographies appear as static pixel maps – flatly domesticated,
tamed and subsumed in the weird, anti-Euclidean tableaux of both the
paintings and the wider, porous installation.
