noplace locates numerous utopian inputs from the Internet and uses these data feeds to create virtual architectures. Photo and audio streams of opposing utopias are played side-by-side; the text descriptions of the content used to synchronize divergent paradises to create a narrative flow.

25 years of transmediale | web video – the new net art? | panel with Robert Sakrowski, Constant Dullaart, Petra Cortright, Igor Štromajer
If net art is cashing in on the utopian promise of video art, what dream does net art have left for itself? Has it come full circle? Is net.art now at its end? And is it true what the net art veteran Mark Amerika proclaims via Twitter, that “video is the new net art”? Read more »
Curated by Thomas Cheneseau + Systaime, Spamm (Super Art Modern Museum) is a new online art gallery featuring an impressive list of artists — JODI, Françoise Gamma, Angelo Plessas, Mr Doob, Rosa Menkman, Jeremy Bailey, Petra Cortright, among many others
Visual arts have entered a new era. It’s a place where immediacy rules, where visual arts becomes virtual, a place that links the world together. A new era for artists who have invented new concepts, using digital medias, from video to graphism, static, animated or even computer-programmed. They have created a flamboyant design for a super-society created in the Web’s image. Read more »
OUR MODELS ARE RUDE
BUT IN A VERY POLITE WAY
IT’S LIKE SHOOTING WEAPONS IN A CREATIVE WAY
WE CAME UP USING THEM WITH GARMENTS
I WAS LIKE... BOOOM!
THIS WAS SUCH A MOMENT..
LIKE IT’S A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH IN FASHION
WE WANT TO USE THE BULLET FOR CHARITY
WE ARE SO INSPIRED BY THE VIOLENCE OF THIS WORLD,
WE GOT REALLY INTERESTED IN POLITICAL STATEMENTS
BEING POLITICAL IS SUCH A HUGE TREND
IT’S NOT MILITARY STYLE ANYMORE
IT’S POLITICAL STYLE
BY USING THE BULLET Read more »
Moments of inertia are ways of describing an object's resistance to change. To take a simple example, we can compute how much force it would take an already spinning wheel to change direction, depending on where and in what manner we apply pressure. Looked at from a certain way, this value is analogous to an object's mass; the higher its value, the more effort required to effect change upon it. In this piece, I'm looking at the problem of calculating moments of inertia metaphorically. Rather than examining a plane and discovering how much effort it would take to spin it, or looking at a cylinder and figuring out how to reverse its direction, imagine if we could discuss this phenomenon as a social one. How much effort does it take to change your life's direction? How do you calculate the inertia of your relationships or your career? How do you determine the effort required to move across the country to be with someone you love, or move three barstools down to talk to someone you find attractive? What is the resistance value of making eye contact, or of saying you're sorry? Even in a society that prides itself on mobility, we all have our moments of inertia. Read more »

A journey through style and independent filmmaking.
This program - a reflection on today's artists whose abilities allow them to integrate the cinematic process from writing to editing with stunning results - will take you on a journey through style and independent filmmaking, from the outright eerie but captivating atmosphere and visual techniques of "Helping Johnny remember", via the collage of 8mm footage, letters and pictures that were used in the video-essay "Mimesis" to the powerful animated feature "The return of John Frum" with an equally powerful sound design, made by Christian Schlaeffer.
Meanwhile, Matt Frodsham and Mat Lloyds approach independent filmmaking differently by combining words and visuals to create a critical verse that will leave you thinking long after the last frame has passed in the film "2 Inches to the Right".
Lastly, immerse yourself in the richly awarded and critically acclaimed "Polish your shoes" by Sam Huntley - whose effective cinematic language brings this adventure into style and independent filmmaking back to its beginning.
Both a product and a reflection of the technology of its times, Fluxus – International Film Festival celebrates the 10th anniversary of its first edition. Born in the environment of new technologies, under the signs of aggregation, portability, mobility, interaction and the democratic nature of the medium, Fluxus has been created in the hopeful atmosphere of the 2000's, which conceived the Internet as a promising channel to the audiovisual exhibition as well.
Now, in 2010, Fluxus proposes a new challenge to the cinema exhibition, joining the Internet and the Museum: Fluxus takes place simultaneously here in this website – fluxusonline.com – and at the São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS-SP), where the Fluxus Gallery is installed. The Internet and the Museum challenge the spectator to see, to share and to pass through this flow of moving images.
The Fluxus Gallery, which will occupy the exhibition hall of MIS-SP until June 20th, provides the possibility of a collective exhibition space, a movie-oriented place composed by 12 screens, which allow the spectator to have simultaneous views of all the films in the Festival. Exclusively at the Fluxus Gallery, there is also a space devoted to a retrospective presenting 14 films of past editions of the Festival. Renowned artists have been invited to the event, such as Seoungho Cho, Anney Bonney, Anouk de Clercq and Cao Guimarães, among others. Read more »
A Short Film about War is a narrative documentary artwork made entirely from information found on the worldwide web. In ten minutes this two screen movie takes viewers around the world to a variety of war zones as seen through the collective eyes of the online photo sharing community Flickr, and as witnessed by a variety of existing military and civilian bloggers.
As the ostensibly documentary 'film' plays itself out on one screen, a second screen logs the provenance of images, blog fragments and GPS locations of each element comprising the work, so that the same information is simultaneously communicated to the viewer in two parallel formats -on one hand as a dramatised reportage and on the other hand as a text log. The artists offer this tautology in an attempt to explore and reveal the way in which information changes as it is gathered, edited and then mediated through networked communications technologies or broadcast media, and how that changes and distorts meaning -especially for the world's users of high speed broadband networks, who have become used to the treacherously persuasive panoptic view that Google Earth (and the worldwide web) appears to give us.
