Item description for Machine Times-DEAFOO by Joke Brouwer & Arjen Mulder...
In the wake of the recent millennium excitement, this publication takes a close look at the role of time in the constitution of our technological reality. At least since Einstein's theory of relativity and Bergson's aesthetics, we have been aware that time forms an indispensable dimension of the reality that surrounds us, and of the way in which we perceive this reality. The artists in "Machine Times" explore the manner in which time both delimits and constitutes our spatial reality. "Machine Times" is published on the occasion of the DEAF 2000 festival in Rotterdam, which investigates the phenomenon of time through a variety of formats--interactive image manipulation, sound performances and virtual environments--in art projects, stage events, essays, and interviews. A sequel to "The Art of the Accident" (1998), "Machine Times" includes essays, interviews and projects by Francisco Varela,, Detlef Linke, Isabelle Stingers, Peter Weibel, Perry Hoberman, Cybernetic Culture Research Unit, Helga Nowotny, Woody Vasulka, Eduardo Kac, tx-transform, Atau Tanaka, and several others. Paperback, 9 x 6.25 inches, 192 pages, 160 color illustrations.
