Buffalo: Skill Share with Victoria Bradbury

May 07, 2016 at Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center in Buffalo.

tracking.php?code=YvGgBB44zLnewcLJJ3GMvH

Pharmaceutically Affected Crustaceans

In collaboration withVictoria Bradbury & Buffalo Lab we offer this hands on circuit building and coding workshop.

$10 Non-Members
Free for Squeaky Members

(Class Space is limited. Contact kevin@squeaky.org for reigistration)

Pharmaceutically Affected Crustaceans (PhACs) is a physical computing workshop in which participants create interactive plush crustaceans using electronics, computer programming, and soft sculpture techniques. This project follows literature from the environmental sciences concluding that pharmaceuticals present in the world’s water supplies effect crustaceans in ways that are similar to their intended effects on the humans who excrete them. The PhACs will be linked to data about their geographic location and respond to the physical or virtual presence of other PhACs.

Victoria Bradbury:
is a media artist weaving programming code, physical computing, body and object.

She has recently led international art hacking events and workshops including The City is The City (is The City) at Baltan Labs (Eindhoven, Netherlands, 2015), Thinking Digital Arts // Hack (Newcastle UK, 2014), and the Into Practice Book Sprint at Banner Repeater (London, UK). She was a member of the British Council team for Hack the Space, Tate Modern. (London UK, 2014) and participated in the IMMERSION: Art and Technology workshops (Shanghai, China, 2012) and Digital Media Labs (Barrow, UK, 2014). Her artworks have been exhibited at Harvestworks, Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center, and The New Britain Museum of American Art.

New York: Explore Programming with Nick Montfort

April 23, 2016 at Babycastles in New York.

tracking.php?code=MjE5KY4JqPfo2TOIGjzvYq

This workshop is for beginners only! This will be a true introduction to computer programming and how it can be used for inquiry and creativity, no previous programming experience needed!!!

Saturday April 23rd from 1pm – 4pm
Cost of the workshop is $55 which *includes* a copy of the book, mitpress.mit.edu/exploratory

Nick will lead participants as they explore computer programs through modification (from the bottom up) and as they start learning the fundamentals of programming (from the top down).

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
* Writing programs is not intimidating; it’s editing a text file.
* The difference between valid code (a program that runs) and code that does what you intend, along with how error messages are actually helpful.
* The fundamentals of programming — looping and iteration, bundling code together in functions, and using data of different types.
* How to undertake small-scale projects and see that computer programming is not an abstract mathematical exercise, but part of our culture.

Although we will be working with JavaScript and Python, the fundamentals you will learn in this workshop will not be specific to a particular programming language. They will provide a basis for a great deal of further programming.

We will be approaching programming as a cultural activity that is accessible to everyone. Those wishing to continue programming after the class can follow along in Nick’s just-published book, Exploratory Programming for the Arts and Humanities, which can be used by people working by themselves or in informal groups.

WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING & PRE-INSTALL:
* If you have a Mac, PC or Linux laptop and know how to use it – you are set. Bring your computer! (Tablets and mobile phones won’t work.)
* Anaconda to be able to use the system we will work in, iPython Notebook: continuum.io/downloads
* A true text editor, such as TextWrangler for Mac (not TextEdit): barebones.com/products/textwrangler
* Or on Windows, the text editor Notepad (built in) will work but Notepad++ (free to download) is preferable.

New York: WOMEN OF COLOR WRITING ON THE INTERNET with Kate Gavino Adalena Kavanaugh Larissa Pham Morgan Jerkins Mellika Rao and Esther Wang

April 25, 2016 at Asian American Writers’ Workshop in New York.

tracking.php?code=v89bw4wnCzlxlw69s5JaD4

Join Kate Gavino with an awesome lineup of emerging writers talking about the challenges, thrills and tribulations of writing as a women of color online. Gavino’s Last Night Reading literary event illustrations have blown up to be a Tumblr sensation. She’ll be joined by Esther Wang, Adalena Kavanagh, Larissa Pham, Morgan Jerkins, and Mallika Rao.

Brooklyn-based illustrator Kate Gavino attended hundreds of literary events in New York. She drew inspirational quotes from the authors she saw and posted them on her Tumblr, Last Night’s Reading. The series has now been published as a book, Last Night’s Reading: Illustrated Encounters with Extraordinary Authors (Penguin 2015) featuring illustrations of writers like Zadie Smith, Lev Grossman, and many authors at AAWW events, like Viet Nguyen, Kimiko Hahn, Vu Tran, Cecily Wong, and Amitava Kumar. “Part of the appeal of literary readings is the chance to see in person the writers behind the books—to see how they carry themselves, to listen to them speak, and to witness their offhand moments of humor or insight,” Poets and Writers notes. “Illustrator Kate Gavino captures these moments in her new illustrated book.”

Fuse Literary Assistant Agent Morgan Jerkins studied nineteenth century Russian literature and postwar modern Japanese literature, speaks six languages, and has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times, and EBONY.

BuzzFeed Emerging Writers fellow Esther Wang formerly worked as part of the digital communications strategy team at Caring Across Generations, a community organizer at CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities, and a 2013 AAWW Open City Fellow.

Fiction writer and librarian Adalena Kavanagh has published work in Electric Literature, Gigantic, and The Kartika Review and plays drums for the psychedelic rock band Early Spring.

Author of Fantasian, a New Lovers novella forthcoming from Badlands Unlimited later this year, Larissa Pham has published art and writing in Guernica, The Nation, Adult Mag, Nerve, New York Magazine, and Dazed.

Former HuffPo Cultural Reporter, Mallika Rao is a frequent contributor to New York Magazine.

New York: OPENING – TARWUK: j_KOPSA_LUCIS.32

April 20, 2016 at Practice in New York.

tracking.php?code=piPJCjDL8tymbcLh4epfPa

OPENING WEDNESDAY 20 APRIL, 6 – 9pm
Soundscape by Corey Riddell

ON VIEW 20 April – 27 April 2016

Due to the special circumstances of Practice, we will meet visitors at 111 Eldridge Street and lead them to the space at the following times:

6:00pm
7:30pm
8:00pm

Please arrive at the times specified, or call: 646-340-7764 / 443-851-9691 / 347-495-7496

Imagine a scientist that is determined to study the nature of light. First, they break it apart into pieces, shining the light through a prism so that it splits into individual colors. The color red gets bounced around in a mirrored box, and measurements are made. The color green suffuses a room filled with flowers, just to see if they notice. Blue is piped into optical fibers and wrapped around test tubes filled with liquids of various temperatures, then projected back out into the world, where it is still, sadly, blue. The color orange is lit on fire. Yellow moves through a room filled with heartbreaking music. Purple is forgotten until the very end. The scientist takes each of the colors and refracts them back together- so that they shine again as white. Then they do the experiments all over again, trying a different color every time.

Perhaps each of the works produced by the artist-duo Tarwuk could be described as one of these experiments. They have taken an experience or a memory, in this case one of Vedran Pogacnik, and pried apart each of its layers, testing them one by one to see what happens when they are run through the filter of a process or a person. Pogacnik’s favorite military unit from the science-fiction game Starcraft, the hydralisk, is taken out of the computer and made into a sculpture, that sculpture is then 3D scanned, bringing the character back into the computer. While the color yellow never learns to sing the song that it has moved through–the hydralisk does change. Through every translation and every act of intervention, the hydralisk adapts and takes on the voice of Tarwuk.

In many ways, our experience of the world is altered by the mechanisms through which the world is seen and understood. We do not necessarily see blue the same way as other people. When we look out at the ocean the only waves that we can see are the ones we have names for, the rest are just water. Perhaps it is because of this, and because every person on earth is a unique mechanism, that we struggle so hard to communicate in true and meaningful ways, even to those with whom we share the most. By taking something beloved by Vedran Pogacnik, whose brother is half of Tarwuk, and passing it back and forth between them, Tarwuk creates a bridge between themselves and Pogacnik. It gives them a shared vocabulary with which to communicate, possibly, and learn whether or not they all see blue the same way.

– Justin Berry

TARWUK (Bruno Pogacnik Wukodrakula b. 1981, Zagreb, Croatia and Ivana Vuksic b. 1981, Dubrovnik, Croatia) lives and works in New York. They started working as an artist duo in mid-2014 and since then have not maintained separate practices. In July 2016, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka, Croatia will mount a solo presentation of their work. They had solo exhibitions at Museum of Lauba, Zagreb (2015); Pony Project Gallery, Vienna (2015); and Pony Project Gallery, Berlin (2014). TARWUK were also included in group shows at the Dorfman Projects, Helac Fine Arts and NARS Foundation in New York (2014) and Zona Sztuki Aktualnej in Szczecin, Poland (2014). TARWUK also exhibited video works at Centrum Turystyki Kulturowej Trakt in Poznan (2014) and Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Croatia (2014).
