Jason Nelson’s New Work “Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise” [#geekgirl]
Title: Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise
“NYHDDSP is an art/ poetry/ adventuring game, a playland for exploring our ever-present desire for constant and over-blown rewards. Our worlds (digital and breathing) are filled with needless and unearned praise, we are built to love exploding trophies for fifth place. This art/poetry game satisfies your compliment addiction by celebrating your walking/ jumping/ falling through strange and wondrous anatomical lands. The game is sponsored by my Turbulence.org, a New Media organization in NYC and the NEA.”

Visual Purgatory: “The Shining” + “Twin Peaks” [#geekgirl] [#yay]
“One day I was struck by how the iconic floor patterns from Twin Peaks and The Shining could be matched up, and how they both can be viewed as representing a sort of purgatory. So, a bunch of hours in Photoshop, and voila! Originally, I made the graphic without the characters, but in the end, decided to add them in.”
“#Glitch Moment/ums” Exhibition [#geekgirl]
“Curated by Rosa Menkman & Furtherfield.
Opening Event: Saturday 8 June 2013, 2-5pm
with Glitch Performance by Antonio Roberts at 3pm
Open Friday to Sunday 11-5pm
“The glitch makes the computer itself suddenly appear unconventionally deep, in contrast to the more banal, predictable surface-level behaviours of ‘normal’ machines and systems. In this way, glitches announce a crazy and dangerous kind of moment(um) instantiated and dictated by the machine itself.” Rosa Menkman
Glitches are commonly understood as malfunctions, bugs or sudden disruptions to the normal running of machine hardware and computer networks. Artists have been tweaking these technologies to deliberately produce glitches that generate new meanings and forms. The high-speed networks of creation and distribution across the Internet have provided the perfect compost to feed this international craze. This exhibition shows various approaches by artists hacking familiar hardware and their devices which include mobile phones, and kindles. They disrupt both the softwares and the digital artefacts produced by these softwares whether it be in the form of video, sound and woven glitch textiles.”

City Talks 2013 – What Creative Life do You Want for #Sydney? [#geekgirl]
What creative life do you want for Sydney?
Great cities’ reputations are built on their cultural life and Sydney is no exception.
From the museums, galleries, theatres and concert halls to street art, small bars, shops and hole-in-the-wall venues – some of the best things about Sydney are bound up in its cultural life.
How can we inspire an even richer creative culture? How do we support creative people to live and work here? And how can we encourage people to go out to shows or invest in local work?
Hear from Carol Coletta, CEO, Artplace America, about how Artplace changed culture and creative communities across the US and what Sydney could learn from the experience.
A panel of creative leaders and innovators will debate the opportunities and practical steps we could take to inspire a more creative Sydney.
Tell us what creative life you want for Sydney.

“What happens when all of the #elements of a #place exist in the same physical location?” [#geekgirl]
“By changing the 3D information of a place from a proprietary format to an open one elements of each place were given their own origin point. Not something you usually want to happen.
I exploited this glitch by moving the origin points to the (0,0,0) – the universal origin of 3D space.
This is what happens when all of the parts of a place exist at the same point in space.” – Alex Myers

#Marina Abramović + #Ulay: #MoMA 2010 [#geekgirl]
Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again.
At her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, where she shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.
