As she underlines " You could make other people's art, you could predict what everyone was going to post next, faster than they could post it. Your ideas and personalities became brands instantly. You started viewing everything in situ with similar and related content around it, which in art always included other work that was copying it or at least was uncomfortably similar. It also included products, artifacts, architecture, and selfies. The timeline from thought to post diminished. All content sources became equalized. Resources were scarce. Memes dominated. It's a story for another time." Read the >>>complete article>>>

(interview by Randall Packer)
Randall Packer has interview Helen Varley Jamieson, an interesting digital media artist, playwright and performer from New Zealand.
She underlines "that there are different kinds of relationship between audience and performers, at least in performances using platforms such as UpStage, where the audience have the possibility to chat with each other and with the artists. The response from the audience to the performance is in some ways more direct – they can comment in the chat and will often be very honest in their comments; and in other ways more distant – a standing ovation has to be typed into the chat, which is less of a loud emotional outpouring."

Charles Eppley has interviewed the artist Sergei Tcherepnin who participated in a lecture series organized by the Center for Experimental Lectures at Recess. The evening was dedicated to investigating sound as an artistic material, both material and psychological, and also featured philosopher Christoph Cox. While Cox discussed the idea of sound as a pre-linguistic material, Tcherepnin took the opportunity to discuss an aspect of sound practice that remains largely unheard: queer sound and queer listening.
Tcherepnin underlines that he "started to realize that there was not much conversation on sound, which in reality is very subjective... but normally it is talked about much more objectively. For example, even though a lot of the early 1960s pieces might have subjective tactics or strategies, like liberating the spectator to experience sound differently by walking around the space, there was still always an acceptance of sound as a pure, absolute material." >>>complete interview>>>
(posted on Rhizome by Orit Gat)
An interesting article that can be read on Rhizome "As museums are rethinking their relationship to their audience online, an increasing number chooses to publish online magazines, and many of these publications emerge from institutions that are not necessarily the major museums in art world hubs. The attitudes toward these publishing initiatives vary—some choose to outline the scope of their publishing platforms in the shape of their programming, while others produce magazines that are thematically related to subjects the museum covers but are not directly linked to the art on view. What they all share is a feeling that online publishing expands the museum's audience, making it a potentially global one." >>> read it >>>

April 5th, 2015 Coming soon: Anniversary special edition...!!!
We had the chance to get in touch with 9 artists from the worldwide scene who have developed a significant body of work deeply engaged with a multidisciplinary approach, which reveals the kaledoiscopic nature and the creative potential of Contemporary Art
We are pleased to announce the shortlisted artists that will be featured in the upcoming Anniversary Edition of LandEscape Art Review
My interest in the psychology of place and how a sense of home is created and sustained has been a catalyst for both autobiographical and voyeuristic projects, documentary approaches to more conceptual ones.
Much of my photographic and video work highlights the domestic environment, although projects sometimes refer more broadly to place and sites in transition.
My recent landscape work and photographs of the built environment share an underlying narrative about human interaction or presence and the psychology of a particular place will always lead me to research and initiate a project.
There is seldom a place left in life for deeper contemplation, pursuit of peace and balance. It is a pure luxury being able to appreciate the reality and listen intently to yourself. Sababa is all about sharing and rediscovering inner perception.
Sababa is a dance piece, that illustrates Zofia and my (co- creator of the piece) overwhelming fascination with dance, freedom and commendation of Israeli culture. It presents a sine wave of people’s emotions.
The viewer can either relate to it, or just observe.
We are not trying to describe anything, or ask questions.
We simply reveal a piece of our inner, abstract world. We are inviting the audience to enter a non verbal dialogue, from which the spectator takes whatever he or she wishes and builds a fantasy story.
The small problem I faced today might be the big problem we are facing nowadays my job as art designer gives me a lot of experience. Due to space constraints the project ”Empty house” has not been fully exploited and completed.
The original idea of this project is to make a static noise environment firstly, when participants walked into the space, shied the amplified static noise by the sensor, and amplify the sound of participants’ bodies by the sensor.
Yong Zhang is an excellent sound engineer, we have the same cognition about the sound collecting. In our cooperation, we have enlarged the effect of this work to infinite possibility, this is the most pleasant and I’m looking forward to work with him again.
These tales were rich andexpressive, passed down for generations through an oral tradition that allowed constant alterations byindividual story-tellers.
Criticized as unsuitable for children, the earlier versions of these stories were editedto suit ever-changing societal tastes. Over time, all ugliness and sexual connotations were removed, culminating in changes made over the last century – by Disney.
I approach the act of painting with a barrage of material on canvas, then revisit the work at a later time to refine with a more controlled technique.
I aim to capture the immediacy of expression resulting in unexpected subject matter. Growing up amidst a forest, in a house of glass walls and contemporary art, has provided the inspiration and sets the tone for my work.
She layers oil paint with ink, incorporates glued surgical gauze, mineral sands and various papers to create these meditative paintings. White provides her with an imaginary space, specific visual elements layered into the whiteness appear to ‘glow’ from within the surface.
This allows for many different interpretations of the final piece.
Without any figurative context, Schandera-Duarte manages to direct the living surfaces of her works with idiosyncratic structures to create dream-like mindscapes.
Her work has an alluring quality in that it pulls the viewer closer to the painting in an attempt to gain as much information from the surface as possible. Curiosity often results in the need to gently touch the paintings surface.
I like to shift, to shuffle and to superpose places, objects, artefacts, events and meanings to make perceptible, observeable and apparent, how our perception is situational and constructed.
The strategy of alienation, displacement and transformation is a search for making social conflict zones visible, to provide an insight to the public to think and perceive space and time on a different way. The artistic intervention in public spheres reflects social processes.
The process of alienation scrutinizes the perception: Is it a minaret? What is a symbol? What is a sign? How and what do they evoke? What is the impact of forms on our imagination? What creates a pictorial space? How do we move or are we moved in space and places?
The final products are sculptural re‐stagings; photographic models whose irritating, estranged appearances are of particular interest to me. Nothing familiar seems to last and visions arise of a time that has never been and will never be. The synthetic scenery of my photographic sculptures ‐ model cities of their own ‐ constitute a further layer to explore with my camera, resulting in the large, digital color prints in the series like “City Parts”. To me, visions arise of a time that has never been and will never be. Perception and memory are inherently unstable, their contents changing, their objectivity limited.
The Non Profit Art Company “Out of the Box Intermedia” presents “Comrades of Time” by Andrea Geyer curated by Dr Sozita Goudouna within the context of the “Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: Refrains of Freedom International Conference” on Friday 24th of April at 17.30-19.30pm at the French Institute of Athens and on Saturday 7.30-11.00pm at the Museum of History of the University of Athens, (Old University, or Oikia Kleanthous) Comrades of Time attempts to find new ways to capture time in the image by engaging with the question of time and with the provocation of Gilles Deleuze’s term the “Time-Image.” The artist is researching on the new significance of time and on the temporalization of the image as a political, historical and cultural construct by working with seven women who recite monologues composed from speeches, letters and essays from 1916-1941, written by architects, writers, philosophers and political organizers >>>read the complete article>>>
