I forgot to post last week’s links from Crisis Century class. Here, then, is a day’s dose of contemporary media and culture:
Ce Qui Arrive / Unknown Quantity. An exhibit of culture of accidents as art, exploring tragic and catastrophic accidents as the natural offshoot of technological progress; an invention of the invention. Unfavorably reviewed in NYArts Magazine, partly for its callous portrayal of 9-11 as an “accident.”
V2 Organisation: Institute for the Unstable Media. An art center for new media in Rotterdam, themed around instability and entropy as creative forces.
Surveillance Dust. Nanotech espionage device, deployable as tiny grains with sensors and miniature parachutes, and smart dust networking.
