Bio Mapping is a research project which explores new ways that we as individuals can make use of the information we can gather about our own bodies. Instead of security technologies that are designed to control our behaviour, this project envisages new tools that allows people to selectively share and interpret their own bio data.
The Bio Mapping tool allows the wearer to record their Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), which is a simple indicator of emotional arousal in conjunction with their geographical location. This can be used to plot a map that highlights point of high and low arousal. By sharing this data we can construct maps that visualise where we as a community feel stressed and excited.
How will our perceptions of our community and environment change when we become aware of our own and each others intimate body states?

ENGLISH VERSION BELOW
Nella cultura digitale questi temi rappresentano molti versanti della sfida intellettuale che anima la ricerca tecnologica. Trasmissione a distanza, realtà virtuale, ambienti intelligenti, ma anche l'open source, la questione copyright/copyleft, i creative commons, sono contesti tecnologici e giuridici. Con questi contesti stiamo ora imparando a convivere, sono stati progettati per il superamento della dimensione spazio temporale, il superamento della fisicità, il superamento dei vincoli del corpo, il superamento del digital divide, che portano al problema della condivisione del sapere con i Paesi del Terzo Mondo, e a dibattere di aspetti sociali e politici che il digitale inevitabilmente porta con sè. Ma non costituiscono forse queste sfide
(i superamenti dei limiti) anche l'anima dell'attività sportiva? Tecnologie e sport si muovono nella prospettiva di ampliare le possibilità di azione dell'uomo, abbassando le soglie che si pongono come barriere, sia fisiche che mentali. Non esistono infatti solamente opposizioni dovute all'opacità e alla pesantezza dei corpi e della materia, ma vincoli dati dalle ideologie, da pregiudizi, dall'ignoranza.

The most important date with Italian art, digital culture and new media is coming back, with its second edition. There'll be five days packed with interactive installations, live performances, music, DJ and VJ live sets, seminars and workshops. PIEMONTE_SHARE_2006 runs parallel with the XX Winter Olympic Games in Turin 2006 and kicks off during the Paralympics with the theme "Limitless": breaking down the barriers.
In digital culture, these issues represent two sides to the intellectual challenge that animates technological research. Distant transmissions, virtual reality, intelligent environments, but also open source, managing copyright/copyleft, and creative commons - these are technology and legal issues that we are still learning to live with. They have been designed to overcome the time and space dimension, the physical aspect, body limits, the digital divide, but they also lead to the problem of sharing knowledge with Third World countries and debates on the social and political aspects that the digital culture inevitably brings with it.
But don't these challenges of breaking down barriers also include the passion of sport?
Technology and sport both move with the aim of increasing our chances of succeeding in what we do, by overcoming all physical and mental barriers. In fact, opposition due to dull or heavy bodies or matter doesn't exist, only obstacles through ideologies, prejudices and ignorance.

Hard Candy (18) USA / 2005 | David Slade Preview Screening and Q+A 4pm |
120 mins Hayley probably shouldn't be going to a local coffee shop to meet
Jeff, a 30-something fashion photographer she met on the Internet, but before she knows it, she's mixing drinks at Jeff's place and stripping for an impromptu photo shoot. It's Jeff's lucky night. British director (and one-time Sheffield resident and award-winning promo director for Aphex Twin, System Of A Down and Tori Amos) David Slade delights in the ambiguity of their encounter, before taking his film somewhere else entirely. Hayley isn't as innocent as she looks, and the night takes a turn when she begins to impose her own hard-hitting investigation against Jeff. Controversial, provocative, and superbly performed by the two leads, Hard Candy is a serious exploration of society's darkest taboos. David Slade will introduce this special UK preview, subject to work commitments.

Exhibition Commissioned by Lovebytes Millennium Galleries, Arundel St, Sheffield

Si tiene dal 28 febbraio al 12 dicembre allo Spazio Oberdan di Milano, in Viale Vittorio Veneto 2, il ciclo di dodici incontri divulgativi sull'arte contemporanea dal titolo "Perché non parli?".
L'iniziativa rientra nel progetto "InContemporanea. La rete dell'arte" con cui la Provincia di Milano intende promuovere l'arte del presente intesa come risorsa indispensabile per la riqualificazione urbana, sia dal punto di vista culturale che da quello sociale ed economico.
Il ciclo di incontri è realizzato in collaborazione con UniCredit, gruppo impegnato in un progetto di divulgazione dei linguaggi della contemporaneità e di valorizzazione delle giovani risorse creative del nostro Paese.Da più parti arrivano domande all'arte e sull'arte, richieste di comprensibilità e fattibilità, naturalmente queste sono rivolte per la maggior parte all'arte contemporanea oggetto di un doppio ciclo di conferenze intitolate a loro volta "Fatti d'arte" e "Conversazioni d'arte".
Il titolo generale dei due cicli di conferenze "Perché non parli?", tra verità e leggenda, allude alla celebre frase che Michelangelo rivolse alla sua ancor più celebre opera, Mosè, mettendola in relazione con gli interrogativi posti non a una sola opera, ma all'arte in generale che di tante opere è fatta.
Per questo è stata programmata una serie di conferenze che agiscono su un doppio binario, quello della teoria e quello della pratica, quello del pensiero e quello della tecnica.Da una parte la prima serie: "Fatti d'arte " da febbraio a maggio ospita di volta in volta curatori, critici, storici dell'arte che in solitaria spiegano l'a-b-c dell'arte attraverso le loro categorie "tecniche" quindi: Guido Curto per la Pittura, Francesco Tedeschi per la Scultura, Francesca Comisso per l'Installazione, Sandra Lischi per la Videoarte, Gigliola Foschi per la Fotografia, Lorenza Perelli per l'Arte Pubblica.
Nella seconda, "Conversazioni d'arte ", a partire da ottobre fino a dicembre si terranno, sulle stesse tematiche, dialoghi a due (un artista e un teorico) quali: Jean Clair e Sandro Chia per la Pittura, Luciano Fabro e Daniel Soutif per la Scultura, Massimiliano Gioni e Maya Bajevic per l'Installazione, Jean-Paul Fargier e Gary Hill per la Videoarte, Hripsimé Visser e Reineke Dijkstra per la Fotografia, James Lingwood e Antoni Muntadas per l'Arte Pubblica.
In questo modo si cercherà di rispondere alle pressanti domande sullo stato e il significato dell'arte a seguito dei mutamenti legati alla globalizzazione.
Si tratta di cambiamenti che, prodotti dalla grande migrazione proveniente da mezzo mondo dell'Est e del Sud verso l'altro mezzo mondo dell'Ovest e del Nord, sta riscrivendo le mappe non solo geografiche, ma storiche, antropologiche, artistiche, ed esistenziali dell'umanità.

Lilly controls my Foriginals
Text by Domenico Quaranta
For their first Italian personal exhibition, the Austrian artist duo UBERMORGEN.COM* (lizvlx/Hans Bernhard) is showing a synthesis of their recent work -- a subtle membrane connecting the digital and the biological: a mix that UBERMORGEN.COM, an identity that lives and works on the Net, experienced on their own bodies. One of the best-known
exponents of the net.art scene, UBERMORGEN.COM are the theorists of digital
actionism, a radical practice of artistic action which experiments on
the market of attention and takes place in mass media. The most astonishing
result of this kind of practice so far has been Vote-Auction (2000),
a web site that, during the American presidential elections 2000, helped
people sell their vote in an auction. The legal prosecution against
UBERMORGEN.COM, and the media hysteria it produced, are an integral
part of the whole project. During this mass-media-performance,
UBERMORGEN.COM were interviewed up to 30 times per day. CNN produced a 30 minutes
show on the project in their legal format Burden of Proof. In this feature,
UBERMORGEN.COM never comment on whether the project was a real threat
to the integrity of the U.S. election or wheter it was a political satire.
In the mass media storm, the digital actionist works with her whole body,
as well as part and victim of the network around her. “We are children of the 1980s, We are the first internet-pop-generation... Hans Bernhard is loaded with 10 years of internet & tech [digital cocaine], mass media hacking, underground techno, hardcore [illegal] drugs, rock&roll
lifestyle and net.art jet set...” Hans Bernhard`s neuronal networks are connected to the global network, and his mental illness – the bipolar affective disorder that in March 2002 sent him to a mental hospital – is the network's illness. The video called PsychOS (2005)** sums up that
experience, in which those two levels – digital and real, bio & tech, nervous system and operative system – merge.
This nervous system, infected by the hi-tech, needs a treatment, and the
hi-tech society prescribes its remedies, “bio-chemical 'agents' which control the internal information flow”. Olanzapine, an antipsychotic drug produced by the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly as Zyprexa®, is one of these agents. In the digital prints** Zyprexa “Lilly 1112” and Zyprexa “Lilly 4117” (2006), UBERMORGE.COM paints the drug molecular structure,
but during this translation process the molecule discovers to be made by bits. “Just pixels on a screen, just ink on paper”, like Foriginals (forged originals), the conceptual device UBERMORGEN.COM uses to change legal documents into legal art.
The title of the show – a declaration of poetics that seems to be a declaration of love – derives from this process. “Lilly controls my Foriginals” means “Lilly controls my artistic work”, where Lilly just seems to be a woman’s name, is in fact the name of a pharmaceutical company. Lilly “controls”, inspires as well as oversees, supervises the contact between my brain and my hard drive.
UBERMORGEN.COM’s focus on “the pixel as the molecule” and technology as a
hidden demon relates to the technology industries newest gadgets -- RFID
(Radio Frequency Identification) chips are one of the leading technologies of the future: an identification system that can collect diverse information about the products it is attached to as well as the person that has made purchase of the product. From a formal point of view,
RFID chips reveal an organic structure, surprisingly similar to a cellular structure. With the ART FID (2005) series**, UBERMORGEN.COM uses the visual impact of a suprematist painting, and tells us about this mix between biotechnologies and digital technologies, this neverending overlapping of two contiguous levels that is shaping our identity.
