Edge-Life: technoetic structures and moist media→

Life @ the edge of the Net
Just as the development of interactive media in the last century transformed the world of print andbroadcasting, and replaced the cult of the objet d’art with a process-based culture, so at the start of thiscentury we see a further artistic shift, as silicon and pixels merge with molecules and matter. And just asbroadcast radio, TV and the interactivity of the Net changed entirely the way we lived at the end of the 20
th century, so now in daily life, our habits, attitudes and ambitions are undergoing a further transformation.We can call this Edge-Life since we are re-defining completely our identity, our social structures, and ourpicture of the world, here at the edge of the Net where the virtual flows seamlessly into the actual, thetransient into the fixed, and the metaphysical into the material.
Between the dry world of virtuality and the wet world of biology lies a moist domain, a new interspace of potentiality and promise. I want to suggest that Moistmedia (comprising bits, atoms, neurons, and genes)will constitute the substrate of the art of our new century, a transformative art concerned with theconstruction of a fluid reality. This will mean the spread of intelligence to every part of the builtenvironment coupled with recognition of the intelligence that lies within every part of the living planet.This burgeoning awareness is technoetic: techne and gnosis combined into a new knowledge of the world, aconnective mind that is spawning new realities and new definitions of life and human identity. This mindwill in turn seek new forms of embodiment and of articulation.
At the same time, as we seek to enable intelligence to flow into every part of our manmade environment,we recognise that Nature is no longer to be thought of as ‘over there’, to be viewed in the middle distance,benign or threatening as contingency dictates. It is no longer to be seen as victim ecology, fragile orfractious, according to our mode of mistreatment. Technology is providing us with the tools and insights tosee more deeply into its richness and fecundity, and above all to recognise its sentience, and to understandhow intelligence, indeed, consciousness, pervades its every living part. The mind of Gaia, set in deChardin’s noosphere, is becoming amplified and perhaps transformed by the technoetic effects of humanconnectivity, ubiquitous computing and other far reaching consequences of the Net.
Like many landscaping shops, Forest Floor is a wonderfully photogenic place (SLurl) with many spots for you to pose your avatar with great results. There are beautfiful fields of flowers, stragecially placed furniture, and a fabulous horizon line.

But the best picture opportunities are at ground level (SLurl) where you’ll find a hyper-realistic landscape dotted with with mystical accents and some of the best natural water features in all Second Life. Whether you use the standard sky settings or fiddle with Windlight as I did for these pictures, you can produce wonderful pictures with minimal effort.

The water features are exceptionally nice and if you trace the stream from bay to source you’ll see that the landscaper understands how real life waterways form.

Every now and then you’ll find some mystical elements among the hyper-real. The limited placements make the fantastic more plausible without overwhelming. Of course, almost everything you see at ground level is for sale in the shop.

For some reason my big pixy avie finds her way to Forest Floor nearly every time she is logged in to our world. All my avies have a landmark, of course, and visit now and then, but not with the frequency of Zyx. Often I’ll park her in a pretty spot (they are all over) and leave her on the screen like living wallpaper while I do things on my iPad or other non-computer tasks that RL demands. Or anytime I need to relax, Forest Floor is a top choice to simply stroll through, ride one of the available horses, or even just fly about to absorb the beauty.

Artie Vierkant - Similar Objects, 2011


on open file blogspot

Similar Objects by Artie Vierkant is an extensive website of images culled from the internet. The web based work uses Google’s ‘search by image’ function to collate images which are visually similar. The softwares algorithmic detection groups together objects that have similarities due to their pictorial composition. 

"I think this kind of virtual-physical relationship in particular interests me, the degree of augmentation or representation that succeeds in actually changing how we think about or interact with an object. This way we can concentrate on building layers of infrastructure that effectively create new spaces."

Tumblr De Stijl.
The identity of a company, specially a web service, depends too much  of its website layout. We don’t have to see logos or typography in order  to indetify the company, sometimes just we need colors and position. Thats why I merge the website layout with the artistic  movement: De stijl.

La identidad de una empresa especialmente de un servicio de internet, depende bastante del layout de su página web. No tenemos que ver logos o letras para identificar la empresa, sólo colores y la posición en la que se encuentran. Por eso quise combinar el layout de páginas web con el movimiento de arte De Stijl.
