Sissu says: Planetary breakdown = Have been thinking about proposals for our century for some time, possibly a mad useless purely formal idea. Today, am in auto-pilot mood, caught in a fast increasing vehicle (not this one: http://folkestonetriennial.org.uk/past-years/2008/artists/heather-and-ivan-morison/), trying to recall what philosopher Hiroshi Yoshioka desribed as “the slowness at the speed of light”, a claim for using high-speed technology for being slow. Time capsule back and forth across dimensions, lunar scapes. DIY methodologies. Erroneous practice.

Sissu says: The research conducted over the last few days, weeks, minutes, continues to address formats of agency, modular systems, self-organised or semi-fictional institutions, and what artist Lois Weinberger described as ‘botanical diaspora’ — formed by an accumulation of nomadic plants or “hardy migrants, able to flourish in poor soil,” dislocated organisms “subverting any human projection of territorial sovereignty or fixed borders” (Tom Trevor 2007). There is a text to write on Common Flowers – Flowers Common (BCL), a book on animation to finish, bike rides to undertake, meetings of the FREE DEPARTMENT to organise, tactics of concealment (e.g. for writing) to develop.

Sissu Tarka says: Met Toshimaru Nakamura http://vimeo.com/8822156, http://www.samadhisound.com/toshimarunakamura/ on a humid day in Tokyo last year. Working on our recorded interview right now, the sound conversation around issues of the no-input mixing board triggers other ‘noise’: Steina and Woody Vasulka’s “Noisefields” 1974, or the light installation “Electric Chair or TV” 2009 by Masaki Fujihata with whom I shared thoughts on subverting devices, reconstructing experience and the search for irrational objects.
Legacies of Tony Conrad’s “The Flicker” 1965–1966?
Or one might say – This is More Brilliant than the Sun... (Kodwo Eshun).

PROVIDING TOOLS

Allright, let's get back on "theme" (which was, if you recall, Participatory Art) Now we're focusing on works that provide tools to encourage specific kinds of actions by the participants themselves.

SO:

"I'm working on a piece with Joseph Hocking and Edgar Ramirez called 'the leak in your home town'. What we are doing is AR on the iPhone using the BP flower as a tracking marker and adding the broken pipe with gushing oil rising out of ita> like a chimney pipe. We are also doing AR with GPS as well.

Create your own oil spill in your local neighborhood with 'the leak in your hometown' app currently for the iPhone 3GS and coming to the android. Take your mobile device to your local BP gas station and launch the app. Use the app to look at the BP logo and see the broken pipe and clouds of oil emerge from the sign. "
