Poetics of the Algorithm

The group ACME orga­nized in the Uni­ver­sity of Liège the Sym­po­sium enti­tled Poet­ics of the Algorithm:Narrative, the Dig­i­tal, and ‘Uniden­ti­fied’ Media. Among a three-day con­fer­ence involv­ing numer­ous pan­elists and researchers from dif­fer­ent insti­tu­tions and uni­ver­si­ties, I intro­duced the project of tac­tile lit­er­acy Shapereader. Thank you Aarnoud Rom­mens, Bjorn Olav-Dozo and Benoit Cru­ci­fix for the invi­ta­tion.


Mash-up in Rennes

I have the plea­sure to con­tribute to the first Bien­nale des écri­t­ures de Rennes with an exhi­bi­tion of a yet unpub­lished project and the lim­ited edi­tion of two silkscreens from the pages of the upcom­ing book, thanks to Mor­van­diau, Lau­rence Coste from Spéléo­gra­phies and Julian Escudé for the great scenog­ra­phy and the pro­duc­tion.


The Structure of Revenge

I con­tributed to this sym­po­sium, part of a series of inter­na­tional meet­ings based on Ray­mond Williams’ clas­sic essay on mate­ri­al­ity and feel­ing. It was curated by Aris­tide Antonas, Adam Kaasa, Yoke-Sum Wong, Chris­tos Car­ras and was orga­nized in Athens by the Onas­sis Cul­tural Cen­ter.

Shapereader in Tel Aviv

A Shapereader work­shop funded by Asy­lum Arts was orga­nized in the Binyamin Gallery, an artist-run space in Tel Aviv. With the help of Eran Hadas, Keren Katz but also Savyon Fishlovitch, Navah Uzan and Uri Noam from the gallery, we pro­posed to the par­tic­i­pants to work on the sub­ject of tac­til­ity in the Hagadah tra­di­tion.


New CD out!

A min­i­max CD, which has twenty-one min­utes of music, and the outer ring is semi-trans­par­ent. This is quite some intense music and maybe as such the choice to do this as a mini CD is a wise one! Intense, short but very good. Vital Weekly. Jonas Kocher (accor­dion), Ilan Manouach (sax­o­phone), Dim­itris Papa­geor­giou (vio­lin). CD, 21 min­utes

Glacial’s Hardcore Lounge EP is out!

With its fusion of human and elec­tronic soul, this lat­est trans­mis­sion from Glacial fur­ther estab­lishes the duo as an excit­ing force within the more exper­i­men­tal cor­ners of the house and techno com­mu­nity, pay­ing respect to the music of the past while reach­ing for­wards into pre­vi­ously unex­plored ter­ri­tory.”

Harvested is out!

An anthol­ogy curated by microwork­ers. HARVESTED is based on found con­tent, an arbi­trary selec­tion of adult films. It has been entirely fab­ri­cated by an orches­trated, fine­tuned set of sched­uled rou­tines, web scripts and task-based swarm intel­li­gence. Mate­r­ial for this book was assem­bled from a decen­tral­ized net­work of peers and was fil­tered by an anony­mous pop­u­la­tion of microwork­ers.  I am very excited to announce that copies of Har­vested have reached its dif­fer­ent co-pro­duc­ing pub­lish­ers in France, Den­mark, Bel­gium, Switzer­land, Por­tu­gal, Greece, Italy, Spain and soon Mex­ico and South Africa! Write me for more infor­ma­tion.


The Shapereader in Athens

The Shapereader will be on dis­play for the first time in Greece in the Onas­sis Cul­tural Cen­ter. The vis­i­tors will dis­cover the project through the help of two visu­ally dis­abled guides that will be in the premises for the open­ing.


The Shapereader Workshop in Athens

A three-day work­shop where we will explore the pos­si­bil­i­ties of tac­tile cog­nizance using the Shapereader reper­toire will be con­ducted in the Onas­sis Cul­tural Cen­ter. Over 50 par­tic­i­pants have been reg­is­tered. Thank you! Reg­is­tra­tions are now closed.


Workshop with Iris Karayan

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with Iris Karayan, this work­shop is specif­i­cally con­ceived for dancers and musi­cians with visual dis­abil­i­ties. Through its 12 weekly ses­sions at the Onas­sis Cul­tural Cen­ter, we will explore how to build a per­sonal pool of sounds and ges­tures and learn how to use nature as an anal­ogy for ter­ri­to­r­ial expan­sion in order to grad­u­ally build a col­lec­tive chore­og­ra­phy and a sound piece. Reg­is­tra­tions are now closed.
