Video Feedback Live Performance by Masayuki Kawai:
Masayuki Kawai builds a video feedback system composed of dozens of analog audio-visual devices. He shows the machine on site as an installation and operates it as live performance as well. Kawai’s “Video Feedback” works are made with an analog video feedback from a closed circuit system with free-flowing electronic data. No outer video/sound source is used; the video machines and circuits contain subtle noises that are amplified in the loop to generate infinite data flows. When these are put into the video input, they display various figure and colour mutations. When these are channeled into the audio input, they make sounds that are synchronized with the image. It is impossible to make these images and sounds by computer programing-simulation because the digital process eliminates the noise and gives privilege to the signals. Thus, through these works, we directly experience an organic creation of singularity with analog electronic video.

About Media as Singularities

Flush with emergencies, probabilities and preemptions, is the situation under control or out of control? Shock, noise, accident, event, etc., any such exceptional anomaly now seems to be captured by the networks to improve their flexible, robust and sustainable creativities of the self-controlling collective security against frightening unknowable aliens.
A conceptual observation of glitch, however, would provide another view; glitch, not as an error, but as a rhythm of recursive generation of a pattern, which is simultaneously singular and multiple. This paradoxical concept of glitch envisions the real and virtual power of a non-digital and in-formal logic as the potential of the technological environment. It is not simply a break cutting into a connection or opening a hole into a containment. It is not statistical digital uncertainty of unpredictable contingencies or the coming transcendental future. On the contrary, it is a sensation of immaterial materialities of the networks to metamorphose their process of auto-production. They are the conditions of the possibilities of the techno-political ecology. This rhythm is felt resonance of autonomous-and-heteronomous vibrations of the living singularities.
An ethico-aesthetic task of media as singularities is to construct a sensor for these living singularities, transducing them into the sensible as an existing alternative track: Media, the immanent future.

2015 GAX Symposium: GLOBAL ASIAS | ART

Global Art and Diasporic Art in Japan and Asia

Friday, June 26Saturday, June 27

Symposium jointly organized by Mori Art Museum, Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, and Integrated Human Sciences Program for Cultural Diversity (IHS), The University of Tokyo as part of the 2015 Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange initiative (GAX)

This symposium is set in the background of an ongoing investigation under the rubric of Global Asias Art and Visual Cultures, which includes reflections on changing connotations of Asia, the modern and the global with its sets of networked economies and circuits of artistic production and visual flows. The symposium will continue with an evolving awareness of transcultural and transnational mobilities in relation to artistic production, but with a view toward internationalisms and the possibility of new internationalisms—a reexamining of the global, in part through a look at the reinscription of the national and international in the global context, which may also be taken as a push toward local specificities in relation to the global. This is also producing developing practices of global responsibility, including socially engaged and environmentally conscious forms of art practice that point to a planetary ethics of the visual. Thus, participants will cover topics from the national to the global and the planetary, from a history of Asian American and other diasporic Asian art to current global tendencies. Global Asias | Art will engage scholars, arts professionals and artists with a critical look at the field in response to the concept of Global Asias including the conceptual intentionality, possibility and limits of these frameworks.

DAY 2, Saturday, June 27, 2015: IMAGINING ASIAN ART IN GLOBAL ASIAS

The University of Tokyo Komaba Campus, Auditorium, Administration Office Bldg (3F)

This symposium, organized by the University of Tokyo’s Integrated Human Sciences for Cultural Diversity Program, aims to interrogate the notion of Global Asias and the contemporary situation of Asian art in and beyond geographical Asia.

The idea of Global Asias, which refers to the global dislocation, relocation, and transformation of goods, ideas, and people originating in Asia, calls attention to transnational conflict and negotiation at multiple intersecting levels. It is concerned with relationships not only between indigenous cultures inside Asia, but also between Asian-derived cultures outside of Asia. Global Asias looks, for example, not only at the relationship between Japan and the United States or Japan and Brazil, but also the relationship between Japanese-American and Japanese-Brazilian.

The symposium proposes to focus specifically on contemporary art practices in relationship to the global diffusion and transformation of Asian art and culture. We would like to explore how local art history in Asian countries is reconfigured by, and also reconfigures, the globalization of Asian art and its discourses. We are also interested in examining how art practices within a given country relate to art practices by those who are from that country but live and work elsewhere.

In addition, we would like to consider how the idea of Global Asias, which represents a plural and transnational concept of Asian culture, figures in the processes of globalization that in some way exercise hegemonic effects on local and indigenous art practices. The symposium will also consider global framings in relation to the concept of Global Asias which may include a call back to the international or may examine practices that call upon the global in terms of the planetary.

Between Savage and Civilized: Negotiating a Space for Indigenous Art in the 21st Century — at NYU


Between Savage and Civilized: Negotiating a Space for Indigenous Art in the 21st Century
Co-presented by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and NYU Draper Program

Tuesday, April 29, 2014
6-8PM

A/P/A Institute at NYU
8 Washington Mews

What does it mean to be an “Indigenous artist” working between his/her own community and the contemporary global art world? To what degree has the global art world embraced the “tribal”, and the “tribal” interfaced with western art? These are some of the questions Brett Graham will explore, drawing from examples in his own work, and recent indigenous art exhibitions such as Sakahan: International Indigenous Art. Mario Caro (Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow, NYU Draper Program) provides an introduction.

Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas (ADVA) will be published by Brill in affiliation with the Asian/Pacific/American Institute, New York University (New York) and the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art, Concordia University (Montreal).

 

Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas is a new peer-reviewed journal that features multidisciplinary scholarship on intersections between visual culture studies and the study of Asian diasporas across the Americas. Perspectives on and from North, Central and South America, as well as the Pacific Islands and the Caribbean are presented to encourage the hemispheric transnational study of multiple Americas with diverse indigenous and diasporic populations. The broad conceptualization of the Americas as a complex system of continual movement, migratory flows and cultural exchange, and Asian diaspora as an analytical tool, enables the critical examination of the historically under-represented intersections between and within, Asian Canadian Studies, Asian American Studies, Asian Latin American Studies, Asian Caribbean Studies, and Pacific Island Studies. The journal explores visual culture in all its multifaceted forms, including, but not limited to, visual arts, craft, cinema, film, performing arts, public art, architecture, design, fashion, media, sound, food, networked practices, and popular culture. It recognizes the ways in which diverse systems of visualities, inclusive of sensorial, embodied experience, have shaped and embedded meanings within culturally specific, socio-political and ideological contexts.

 

Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas is dedicated to the critical examination of visual cultural production by and about Asian diasporic communities in the Americas and largely conceived within a globally connected framework. The journal provides an intellectual forum for researchers and educators to showcase, engage and be in dialogue with this growing multidisciplinary area of investigation within the humanities and will be published twice annually with one double issue. Along with academic articles, each issue features reviews of a wide range of visual cultural production, including books, films, and exhibitions, as well as full colour artist pages. The journal welcomes transnational and transhistorical as well as site-based scholarly critique and investigation on visual cultures that engage with historical, material, cultural and political contextualizations within current discussions on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, dis/ability and class as well as aesthetics, ethics, epistemologies, and technologies of visuality. Transcultural areas of investigation in the humanities, including Asian-Indigenous collaborations, historical formulations of Afro-Asian connections, and studies on transnational subjects of mixed race heritage, are welcome. In this way, the journal recognizes the critical project of challenging not only the assumed pan-ethnicity of cultural groupings but also the varying degrees of racialized experiences that have been freighted by cultural stereotypes or based on regional identifications, geographical proximity and fixed temporalities.

First issue is planned for publication in Winter/Spring 2015.

DEADLINE for first issue: June 1, 2014
