Item description for Information Is Alive: Art And Theory On Archiving And Retrieving Data by Arjun Appadurai, Joke Brouwer, Simon Conway Morris, Antonio Damasio, Manuel De Landa, George Dyson, Boris Groys & Ingo Gunther...

The archive has of late proven to be a powerful metaphor: history is viewed as an archive of facts from which one can draw at will; our bodies have become a genetic archive since being digitally opened up in the human genome project; our language is an archive of meanings that can be unlocked using philological tools; and the unconscious is an archive of the traumatic experiences that mold our identity. More and more artists and architects are developing software systems in which data is automatically organized into complex knowledge systems, a process in which the user is only one of the determining factors. Databases, software and archives increasingly form the inspiration for artistic interventions. Information Is Alive considers the artistic potential of these couplings via a selection of essays, interviews and projects by anthropologist Arjun Appadurai, philosopher Brian Massumi, writer Sadie Plant, paleontologist Simon Conway Morris, artists Margarete Jahrmann, Lev Manovich, Michael Saup, Jeffrey Shaw, Stahl Stenslie and others. Published on the occasion of the third Dutch Electronic Art Festival (DEAF03). Edited by Joke Brouwer and Arjen Mulder. ~Essays by Manuel de Landa, Boris Groys, Winy Maas, Brian Massumi, Sadie Plant, Arjun Appadurai, Scott Lash, Simon Conway Morris, Antonio Damasio, George Dyson, Ryszard Kapuscinski and Ingo Gnther. Paperback, 6.5 x 9 in./192 pgs / 192 color 0 BW0 duotone 0 ~ Item D20111
