History of New Media Art – Class 3 January 23, 2013 Interactive: Where old media offered passive consumption, new media provides Virtual: Refers to immersion in a virtual environment. This is associated with two modes of virtuality. 1. Technological immersion and computer generated imager 2. An imaginary space generated by communi;cation technologies Frewuently treated as synonyms with “simulation”. This has challenged the “reality” of the virtual. Deleuze: The virtual is not the opposite of the real ubt instead a type of reality! - people negotiate differently versions of reality simultaneously and fluidly - new media technologies providing us with new experiences of reality Simulation: Artificial/Synthetic/Fabricated Not all simulations are imitations but , according to Baudrillard, within the post modern era, simulation has superseded representation As reality fades, the materiality of the world becomes usnstable - it’s not just a copy, but has meaning in and of itself - we live in a world of copies, copies, copies - GTA behavior in the real world is a result of representation of reality in the game world - Lister says everything is a copy (everything is a type or understanding built on something else) and therefore there would be no such thing as virtuality without simulation - Bauldrillard: we are so far into the simulation that the simulation has become the reality? - Prezi: presentation tool Nancy Burson – Beauty Composites 1&2 – 1982 - gaulton composites similar, inspired by - comment on digitizing data makes it easier to manipulate images; fixity & flux The Iranian Missile Crisis - democratization: people are more aware of how it’s done and thus can call it out more - Screen grab @ 1.32.57 January 15th - networking, digital, interactivity, issues of ownership, remediation Networking: - & hypertext work together to create a sense of non-linearity; webs of connection with numerous in’s and outs Olia LIalina – My Boyfriend Came Back from the War – 1996 - move around via hypertext - non-linear - re-negotiation of interactive space Juilius Von Bismark – No projection above the pope - people don’t realize the projection is happening until the see their picture as it is invisible to the eye - drone that senses flash and projects - provides a representation of mediated virtual space? A projection is considered an illusion and thus cannot exist? Maybe it is not virtual as it actually does exist in the space? Dieter Huber – Klone 124 – 1998/99 - collaged images provide appearance of real scene - simulating the real Miley Cyrus - simulation as copy of reality as well as simulation permeating the world (copies of copies of copies..) Art Technology Cinema Man Ray - 3 primary elements contribute to development of cinematic technology - 1. The Magic Lantern - projected images - 2. Discovery of Persistence of Vision - thanks to enlightenment sight key site for knowing truth - spinning creates solid image - 3. Cronophotography/Photography of Motion - Muybridge motion studies - demonstrates photography as an impeccable source of capturing things the naked eye can’t see These along with.. -intense modernization - unrbanization -growht of the middle class (result of consumerism) - Questions regarding identity - increasing technologization of everyday life … facilitated the emergence and rise of Cinema as technology, industry, social practice and metaphor for an era. Lumiere Bros. - Teasing the Gardener 1895, Lunch Hour at Lumiere Factory - photography developed as a means of story telling - films were means of experimentation, not art in the eyes of the Lumiere Bros. - photorealism - documented the (changing) social world - technological experiments made as a means of documenting reality - interplay btw capturing reality and comments of change Scientific Curiosity and the Nature of Film Arrival of a Train 1895 - because photography mimics reality so capably it should not be considered an art form, it is its nature to do what it does an therefore cannot be a means of expression of anything else Daniel Dieters - Discusses the substitution of media for art by drawing on the cases of Samuel Morse and Lousi Daguerre, whose initial artistic practice
