 17:00-20:00 Workshop: Fredrik Gunve – CHRONICLE: Quest

The world is a library moving at lightspeed.

The world is billions of creatures in constant flux.

I feel the massive flow of information, of senses and experiences, hands reaching, touching, wild zapping on the TV-machine, adventure mazes, cosmic colors and maximalism. I hear different voices, all speaking at the same time. We are looking for a safe path that will lead us in our search. The Internet is a library that has come to life, and is now trying to devour us with its craving to communicate what it knows. Every page lies on top of millions other pages that all glimmer through the thin layer of this page. That static is what lies beneath now and the future, it is the face of the mad library.

To be interested in and working with different performance and performative methods is to be involved in various kinds of games, plays and rituals. Part of my work is to be brave enough to deal with uncertainty and nonsense as a part of the process and the outcome. This, I know, is a complicated road to take within the walls of academia. But to perform in the field of art and education must be about more than just getting a good grade, a title, or a call from the jet set curator of today. It must be to be involved in life itself.

17:00-20:00 Workshop: PWR Studio – Assembly

PWR Studio invites you to enter the Black Box, descend into the depths of the Data-Mine and take part in a session of exploratory analysis.

Scenario: Data is captured and accumulated. Through the occult art of data analysis patterns are discerned and valuable information is extracted. Raw data is interpreted into information is refined into knowledge is exchanged for money. The job of the data analysts is finding connections and trends within an ever-growing archive that is approaching a one-to-one relationship with the world. This interpretation is ruled by shadowy algorithms, mysterious tools and in the end our human desire for meaning.

Tags: Apophenia, Texas sharpshooter fallacy, Monkey tree phenomenon, Occult Data Mining, Pareidolia, Clustering illusion, Patternicity, Type I error, Gambler’s Fallacy, Ubicomp, Paranoiac-critical method, Exquisite Corpse, Bulletism, Azathoth, Deep Addressability

PWR studio is a design studio run by Hanna Nilsson and Rasmus Svensson. Cloud-based with physical presence in Berlin and Amsterdam. In collaboration with global actors through digital and analog networks. In addition occupied with research, image-creation and tool-making in search of networked autonomy.
