BioTechnique at YBCA Galleries
Oct 26, 2007–Jan 6, 2008
Guest curated by Philip Ross
Northern California hosts more life sciences companies than anywhere else in the world. BioTechnique showcases a visually rich assortment of organisms, semi-living objects, and intricate life support systems, shining light on the technologies that are changing the global economy and the earth itself. The product of biological techniques, the exhibition artworks have been “grown” rather than manufactured: Denise King’s terrarium habitats constructed for her bacteria paintings; lab equipment used by the Tissue Culture and Art Project to grow chimerical cell clusters; hydroponic garden installations by Philip Ross. Shown alongside these artworks are artifacts made by industrial technologists, ecological researchers, and biological engineers. These hybrid objects, from sheltering vessels to semi-living diagnostic tools being developed in Silicon Valley, provide context for the artworks and further explore the increasingly fuzzy line between the technological and the natural."

Themes: Online Video Aesthetics, Cinema and Narrativity, Participatory Culture, Alternative Platforms and Software, Curating Online Video and Video Slamming (evening program). Introduction In response to the increasing potential for video to become a significantform of personal media on the Internet, this conference examines the keyissues that are emerging around the independent production anddistribution of online video content. What are artists and activists responses to the popularity of ‘user-generated content’ websites? Iscorporate backlash imminent? After years of talk about digital conversions and crossmedia platforms weare now witnessing the merger of the Internet and television at a pacethat no one predicted. For the baby boom generation, that currently forms the film and television establishment, the media organisations and conglomerates, this unfolds as a complete nightmare. Not only because of copyright issues but increasingly due to the shift of audience to vloggingand video-sharing websites as part of the development of a broaderparticipatory culture.The Video Vortex conference aims to contextualize these latest developments through presenting continuities and discontinuities in the artistic, activist and mainstream perspective of the last few decades.Unlike the way online video presents itself as the latest and greatest,there are long threads to be woven into the history of visual art, cinema and documentary production. The rise of the database as the dominant form of storing and accessing cultural artifacts has a rich tradition thatstill needs to be explored.
The conference aims to raise the following questions:
- How are people utilising the potential to independently produce anddistribute independent video content on the Internet?
- What are the alternatives to the proprietary standards currently beingdeveloped?
- What are the commercial objectives that mass media is imposing onuser-generated content and video-sharing databases?
- What is the underlying economics of online video in the age of unlimited uploads?
- How autonomous are vloggers within the broader domain of mass media? Howare cinema, television and video art being affected by the development ofa ubiquitous online video practice?
- What type of aesthetic and narrative issues does the database pose foronline video practice? The closing night will feature live acts, performances and lectures underthe banner of video slamming. We will trace the history from short film toone-minute videos to the first experiments with streaming media and onlinevideo, along with exploring the way VJs and media artists are accessingand using online archives.Video Vortex is a collaboration of the Institute of Network Cultures withArgos Brussels and the Netherlands Media Art Institute in Amsterdam,featuring a series of international events.
