“We Have A Situation! Electronic waste is getting out of hand! We need your imagination and skills to... COMPLETELY CHANGE THE WAY WE ALL THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGY!! We have a situation!, is a series of live, trans-border, online-offline participatory performances addressing current cross-cultural European issues. Four "situations" will be created in four countries - France, Netherlands, UK and Austria - with the final public performance addressing a particular matter of concern. For the London Situation the focus will be on electronic waste. Please join us for the Final Networked Performance - Sat 23 March 2013, 2PM The final networked performative event will take place at Furtherfield Gallery. The event will be streamed live through the UpStage platform with an online discussion between Furtherfield Gallery and kunstGarten Graz (AT) at the end of the event. ABOUT THE LONDON SITUATION: Working with Electronic Waste Media artist Tom Keene (Furtherfield) has been setting up the "situation" for the arrival of Helen Varley Jamieson (We Have a Situation! lead artist) and the other partners. Tom will work with Bright Sparks, a local recycling/fixing/making project, situated in the middle of a housing estate in Islington, not far from where Furtherfield Gallery is located, on researching the topic. Bright Sparks has been working with local people to re-use, repair and recycle electronics & furniture. The underlying theme that we are planning to explore through the London Situation and that has certainly strong resonance everywhere in Europe as well as worldwide, tackles current issues around the social & economic relationships with material things, and how these alternative counter-economies are evolving alongside the materialistic obsolescence of capitalist consumption. New EU regulations will soon require member states to collect 45 tonnes of e-waste for every 100 tonnes of electronic goods put on sale during the previous three years, with a target of 4kg of e-waste per person. That's about 2 million tonnes of e-waste to be collected every year - out of a total of 8 million tonnes generated annually in the EU. Who will be doing this collecting? Who will pay for it? Where and how will the e-waste be recycled? And what happens to the 8 million tonnes not collected for recycling? ABOUT THE PROJECT We have a situation! is a collaboration between four European arts organisations - APO33 (FR), Furtherfield (UK), MAD emergent art centre (NL), and Schaumbad Freies Atelierhaus Graz (AT) - and two individuals, Helen Varley Jamieson and Martin Eisenbarth. It is funded by the European Cultural Foundation.

“{crowdsourced} Noir / Love Beyond Recognition Josefina Posch in collaboration with Mike Blackman Saturday 08 September 2012, 12-6pm Please join us for a drop-in ‘clipsourcing’ workshop led by Swedish artist Josefina Posch in collaboration with artist and new media developer Mike Blackman (UK). Using online tools specifically created for the project, participants will identify who the speakers are, contribute keywords, and rate short Film Noir movie clips. The contribution will help shape the final interactive piece that will be streamed live at Futherfield Gallery in December 2012. About the Project {crowdsourced} Noir / Love Beyond Recognition is a process-based artwork encompassing a sculptural installation and an interactive stream across the World Wide Web. The origin of both parts of the project is based upon the notion of ‘crowdsourcing’. The principle being that more heads are better than one. By canvassing a large crowd of people for ideas, skills, or participation, the quality of content and idea generation will be superior. In this instance, crowdsourcing will be applied through the use of clipsourcing tools which have been developed to aid in project-related tasks that can only be achieved through human interaction/intervention. This way, the crowd will help the artist achieve these tasks whilst adding a democratic element to the final outcome of the project.

During Spring and Summer 2012, an interested public will be able to both participate and contribute to the project's creative process in two distinct ways: in Sweden as models, whereby a cast will be taken of a chosen body part (the body parts will later be assembled to full figure sculptures) and in the UK by taking part in a workshop at Furtherfield Gallery to help source short clips from Film Noir movies through our online tool. The final iteration of the project will be exhibited in Gothenburg, Sweden in December 2012 with live interactive streams at Furtherfield Gallery, London. About the Artist Josefina Posch
Josefina Posch is a Swedish artist that has worked and exhibited extensively abroad, including at the 52nd Venice Biennale, Fondazione Pistoletto's Cittadellarte, Sculpturespace NY and a residency at Duolun Museum of Modern Art Shanghai. During her 3 month residency at Art Space, Portsmouth, in Autumn 2010, she began her collaboration with artist and new media developer Mike Blackman in the development of her digital concepts. The project is supported by Arts Council England/British Council and the Gothenburg City Arts Council.

ABOUT FURTHERFIELD


Since 1997 Furtherfield has created online and physical spaces and places for different kinds of people to come together to get involved with contemporary arts and digital technologies. Their website provides discussion and critical review for an established international community of cutting-edge artists, technologists and thinkers.

Funded by Arts Council England since 2005, Furtherfield is now one of Arts Council England's National Portfolio Organisations. With the support of Haringey Council Furtherfield has established itself as Finsbury Park's creative hub based in two buildings - Furtherfield Gallery at the McKenzie Pavilion in the heart of the park, hosts exhibitions and pop-up up events, and Furtherfield Commons, at the Finsbury Park Gate, is a community technology space for discussions, workshops and residencies.

ABOUT CODASIGN


At Codasign we believe that digital technologies have the same creative potential as paint and canvas. Our workshops enable people with great ideas to use computers to express themselves and bring these ideas to life. We welcome people who want to make a noise, create something beautiful, or just learn a new skill.

Whether teaching children or adults, we love working with open source tools like Processing, Arduino, Scratch and MaKey MaKey.




Furtherfield is supported by Haringey Council and Arts Council England through the National Portfolio funding programme.

VISITING INFORMATION


About the Exhibition


'RE / PRE / SENT / PAST', an exhibition featuring works by media artist Markus Soukup as part of Furtherfield Clear Spots programme, explores different phenomena from dreamscapes to long distance travel recordings, as well as attempted considerations of societal change in relation to technological developments. 


It brings together fragments of subjective experiences related to contemporary everyday existence, which were translated and transformed into 'perceivable outputs' by using different digital techniques. The screen or the physical object as output constitutes an interface, where perceptual experiences of the spectator intermix with the intentions of expression.

The wonders of perception are connected to imagination processes and a continuous stream of individual interpretation that play with the question of what defines objective reality.


About the Artist


Markus Soukup is a media, video and sound artist living and working in London since 2012.

In general he considers the process of making work as an exploration of how an object, image or moving image can communicate its intended content or expression by still enabling freedom of interpretation on realistic and abstract levels.


He is fascinated by the infinity of possibilities and starting points, which the work with moving images provides. Since the end of the 90s he produces videos, 2D and 3D animations investigating the narrative, expressive, poetic and aesthetic potentials of this time-based medium.

A series to be continued investigates language and its structure by de-constructing content or flow, breaking it into parts and reconstructing it on a time based level. Other areas of his work incorporate digital photography and typography, graphic and interactive design, field recordings and electronic music.

His work has been shown in local, national and international exhibitions and festivals, for instance at the 11th international Media Art Biennale WRO 05 (Wroclaw, Poland, 2005), NEXT UP at the Bluecoat Liverpool (2008), the 10th Seoul International New Media Festival (Republic of Korea, 2010) and the Liverpool Biennial 2010.

In 2011 he was awarded the Liverpool Art Prize. As a result his work was shown in the 'Elements & Satellites' exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery, part of National Museums Liverpool in 2012.

In 2013 he was commissioned by Metal Culture to produce the video installation Strata for the 'STILL, conflict, conservation & contemplation' exhibition curated by Simon Poulter at City Gallery Peterborough.

Recent exhibitions include Infinite Separation, part of 'Art:Language:Location' at Anglia Ruskin Gallery Cambridge, and Disjointed at Museum Ex Teresa Arte Actual in Mexico City.

Commission Award: £2,000

Deadline: 6 January 2014
Launch: 13 February 2014


We are commissioning a new interactive mobile artwork to feature in Digital Zoo, an art exhibition that will tour to 6 shopping centres across the UK in 2014.

In this exhibition shoppers will be invited to experience the wonders, delights and fascinations of contemporary life in the “world wild web” - through art installations, projections and workshops.


The commission will be a new or existing work that engages people through their mobile phones – taking the everyday activities and environments of the different shopping centres as their context and playground.


The commissioned work will need to have a distinctive character in each different location.
We are interested in critical and playful works that change shoppers normal experience by connecting them with each other in unusual ways in their natural habitat – momentarily or for ever.
