Karen Lancel & Herman Maat: Tele-Trust (Sonic Acts XIII, 2010)
http://www.sonicacts.com/portal/index.php/karen-lancel-herman-maat-tele-trust-sonic-acts-xiii-2010/ Sonic Acts is a biannual festival at the intersection of arts, science, music & technology. Karen Lancel and Hermen Maat (NL) create ‘meeting places’ in public spaces. These performances and installations are designed as seductive, visual environments. The artists invite their audience to experiment and play with social technologies, and to reflect on their own perception of body, identity, community and alienation. http://www.lancelmaat.nl/ http://www.lancelmaat.nl/content/teletrust-0 Hybrid Spaces Panel This lecture was part of Sonic Acts XIII within the session The Poetics of Hybrid Space. In this session, a panel will explore the new conditions of experience emphasized by the concept of Hybrid Space through the prism of a series of artistic and interventionist projects drawing on the increased hybridity of the contemporary spaces of everyday life. The concept of Hybrid Space does away with misleading spatial dichotomies that have accompanied the rise of digital and networked media; real versus virtual; physical versus immaterial; flows versus places (Manuel Castells). Hybrid Space instead points at a layering of physical and information and media infrastructures, social, cultural and economic flows superimposed in one and the same space. Hybrid Space indicates the simultaneous presence of heterogeneous spatial logics at play in our everyday living spaces.
