When one reality, or one world-view is superimposed on another, it is inevitable that social, economic and cultural problems arise. Hierarchies of worlds are constructs of a bygone era. Ecologies of worlds should guide us in considering our future… We can begin by designing environments that can respond to physical, environmental, or social needs. Not only the needs of human beings, but also of the organisms and elements with whom we share the Biosphere.” – <a href="http://fo.am/entangling" target="_blank">fo.am</a></em></p> <p><a href="http://secondlife.wikia.com/index.php/Rez" target="_blank">Rezzing</a> occurs in the space in-between worlds. <a href="http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=rez&amp;defid=1958482" target="_blank">Rezzing</a> happens in the moment we switch from one reality to another: where the structure of synthetic worlds is unveiled. We see these spaces appear gradually – textures, alpha channels and audio appear in layers. Forms start as simple grey patterns that morph and evolve via emergent detail. These patterns resolve as final forms that adhere to in-game physics and flop into “place”.</p> <p><a href="http://arsvirtuafoundation.org/research/2009/11/14/the-dynamics-of-rezzing-part-1/">Read the rest @ Augmentology.com</a></p> <p><a href="http://faces-l.net/en/content/reality-shifting-%E2%80%93-part-1-rezzing-augmentology-1l0l1">read more</a></p> http://faces-l.net/en/content/reality-shifting-%E2%80%93-part-1-rezzing-augmentology-1l0l1#comments gender mixed reality realityshifting Mon, 16 Nov 2009 18:03:25 +0000 azdelslade 480 at http://faces-l.net Artivistic TURN*ON Transdisciplinary Festival http://faces-l.net/en/node/454 <p><strong>The world to come is so sexy.</strong> </p> <p>We are unstoppable for we are fueled with an incredible urge to embrace the pleasure provided by difference, exchange and liberation. Our actions today are charged with an energy that is animated by the rise of change and a movement that is simply irresistible. </p> <p>For its upcoming fourth edition, Montreal-based festival <strong>Artivistic is going sexy</strong>. From October 15 to 17, 2009, we invite participants to discuss, question, and imagine the proxemics of sexuality, technology and politics. </p> <p>While keeping <strong>issues of power and control</strong> in question, we want to turn to the potency of <strong>pleasure, curiosity, humor, and desire</STRONG> in order to TURN*ON that which has yet to be thought and experienced differently.</p> <p><a href="http://faces-l.net/en/node/454">read more</a></p> http://faces-l.net/en/node/454#comments announcement activism canada diy exhibition gender identity imagination information international participative performances pleasure Sex sexuality sexy workshops Mon, 21 Sep 2009 17:06:16 +0000 eMTv 454 at http://faces-l.net Body Meets Brain: Gender, Science and Technology http://faces-l.net/en/node/398 <p>Das Referat Genderforschung an der Universität Wien freut sich,<br /> folgende Veranstaltung anzukündigen:</p> <p>9.

Between individual needs and social norms" My talk is called: "Draft, tell and show. Digital self/representations of older women" My main point is to show that the miss representation or non representation is political and as long as women do not have the knowledge and tools AND the zest to represent their individual selves these terms won't change. After reflecting on what isn't there, I hope to initiate an empowering selfrepresentation workshop to enable at least a small number of women beyond 50 to use digital tools (as filming, editing, converting/uploading) for their own work/ideas/hopes..</p> http://faces-l.net/en/node/127#comments age gender research reports Sat, 05 Jul 2008 21:39:01 +0000 Sol 127 at http://faces-l.net
