Original interviews with the artist. “I don’t have to know how to do a baby’s hands or a bleeding guy nailed to a piece of wood. I don’t need to know about any of this stuff. I can do mirror cubes. And that’s it. What a great idea…all I have to do is make sure they are interesting.” There is a democratising impulse in Robert Morris’ mirrored cubes. Liam Gillick’s work, however, is not a mirror of anything, but an attempt to look around the mirror. The key to this is the quality of interest and this often has to do ...

Each copy of an edition makes its own journey, like a migrating bird. Only in the painstaking, scholarly work of bibliography is the homecoming of an entire edition possible. A copy of ‘Vögel vor der Kamera’ — birds on camera — is disbound. Artist Susanne Kriemann overprints the loose pages with large letterpress type. The letters H, O, ...

The picture above is a display of the parameters used by the Haskins SineWave Synthesizer (SWS) in experiments that study the temporal aspects of speech. The horizontal axis shows time in milliseconds; the vertical axis shows frequency in Hz. The pattern is a graph of frequency and amplitude variations of three sinusoids. Height in the plane indicates frequency; the thickness of each tracing indicates amplitude. The properties of tonal analogs of speech vary over time. Accordingly, the tones rise and fall in frequency and amplitude in imitation of the frequency and amplitude variations of vocal resonances over the course of an utterance. Note ...

Rab-Rab Talks # 1 Ivana Momčilović on Learning, Non-Useful Art, and Anti-Fascism In conversation with Rab-Rab, Momčilović will talk about her collective projects with Alain Badiou, Jacques Rancière and Natacha Michel, today’s leading theoreticians and writers, with whom she has collaborated since the nineties. Momčilović will comment on the emancipatory potential of Badiou’s and Rancière’s theses on understanding current political and artistic practices. Her focus will be on the educational research project, Ph.D. in One Night, in which she has worked since several years together with contemporary dancers, experimental musicians, and visual artists. Ph.D. in One Night claims re-evaluation of non-useful, ...

“Let us consider two important factors, the two poles of the creation of art: the artist on the one hand, and on the other the spectator who later becomes the posterity. To all appearances, the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way out to a clearing. If we give the attributes of a medium to the artist, we must then deny him the state of consciousness on the esthetic plane about what he is doing or why he is doing it. All his decisions in the artistic execution of the work rest ...

As the conversation unfolds, the artist and the online worker, who may or may not be a bot, struggle to understand and connect with each other. Empathy, digital labor, and new ways to serve and care on the network are the subjects explored in Elisa Giardina Papa’s Technologies of Care, commissioned by Rhizome for the Download. Giardina Papa presents portraits of online workers in a 26MB ZIP file; six are identified as women, plus the possible bot. Each portrait is its ...
