Tess Martin (USA): Slices in time
Venue: ASIFAKEIL, Electric Avenue
Tess Martin is an animator who is inspired by materials, and has made films in sand, cut-outs, paint, ink and markers. She enjoys letting the audience in on how the films were made, and therefore the process of creation is often evident in her work. Themes of her films have included memory, relationships, human-animal communication, the environment, and politics.
For this installation she has created a diorama which evokes the various layers often present in animation – layers of time, comprised by at least twelve images per second; layers of artwork, often animated on different sheets of glass on a multiplane, or layers of movement, expressed one frame at a time.
The installation is complemented by her presentation on March 1 as part of the Animation Symposium "under-the-radar" at Raum D / quartier21, where you will get a chance to see some of her diverse films.

Art & Games feat. Jörg Piringer
Game Night in the Electric Avenue #viennaartweek 2014
Venue: Electric Avenue
As part of the common game night organized by Broken Rules, eSeL REZEPTION and ZamSpielen, selected parlour and computer games on a video screen in the Electric Avenue of quartier21 stimulate a personal exploration of digital art and its protagonists.
Besides other “communication offerings with game rules,” media artist and musician Jörg Piringer invites viewers to interact with his sound poetry apps on smartphones and tablets at the eSeL REZEPTION. “Untitled,” another installation by Piringer, transforms the visitors’ sounds and speech into live, abstract visual text compositions.
"Bring your own games!"

"When we had started with the STR-homepage in February 95, we had travelled to California as part of working on it. Our server, the WELL, was there. We exchanged experiences with their office. We met our friends Howard Rheingold and John "Tex" Coate again, even stayed at their homes for some time. And, we had the pleasure to be invited to Tim Leary´s house in Beverly Hills/L.A. again, and we met Terence McKenna in Big Sur.
One night, we were invited to the Rheingold Haus for dinner in Mill Valley. We were a little group of people, talking about the net. It was 11pm in the meantime, we were the last guests, decided to go. Everything was said, we had a great time, thanked our caring hosts, wanted to go - when Judy Rheingold, at that time getting the news from tv in another room, shouted "Gunafa Twins, the (golden gate) bridge is closed! You can´t leave now." So what to do ?
We talked it over with Howard that driving over Oakland by car to find our way back to SF would have meant more than 2 hours drive. This was too hard. We decided together to wait & see. We got into another round of discussion, and there we created the idea of editorial jam sessions, mailing each other html documents including text, sound, grafix. This later should become Howard´s BRAINSTORMS/DigitalZeitgeist project, which should be the 1st step towards the later Electric Minds, too. When we left that evening - the bridge was open again, and the myth was here !
Back in Frankfurt, we soon started the first jam sessions. It was, IOHO, a big step in online working, cause it meant cooperating on 1 document, dislocated." Station Rose, "1st Decade", edition selene, Wien, 1998
We were working on a pre-Facebook Version, Electric Minds was the beginning of the Social Web in 1996.
In 2014 we arrived at the NEXT Digital Quarter Century, looks like a lot is going on.
Running Fast to the Present !

TONSPUR 64: Arturas Bumšteinas (LTU): Walk Through (2014)
Sound installation in the TONSPUR_passage
Opening: Sun, Nov 23, 17:00, as part of VIENNA ART WEEK 2014
There is a village in East-Central Poland called Gwizdały. In Polish its name means whistles (from gwizdać, to whistle). The village's primary school is home to museum of whistles, Muzeum Gwizdka, which houses a few thousand different examples of whistles, mainly clay whistles in the shape of birds.
In 2012 Arturas Bumšteinas visited the museum and recorded a large selection of various clay whistles there, from these recordings he later prepared various compositions and installation pieces.
The first was a concert and a sound installation in public space ,Gwizdały, commissioned by Varsovian curators Joanna Turek from Galeria A19 Marymont and Andrzej Załęski from Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej Ujazdowski.
The second was an improvised piece titled Quiet Cue, which was premiered at Berlin's experimental music venue of the same name.
The third realisation based on the recordings was a sound installation in a public park in the city of Vilnius titled Čirrrrrrrrr.
The fourth variation on the collection of whistle recordings manifested itself as a composition for piano and tape titled Avis Polonus.
The fifth, and current version, titled Walk Through is an 8-channel sound installation created specially for the TONSPUR_passage in the MuseumsQuartier, curated by Georg Weckwerth.

im Rahmen der Ausstellung "PCFS - Post Colonial Flagship Store"
Ort: MQ Vorplatz
Als Installation im öffentlichen Raum zur Ausstellung "PCFS - Post Colonial Flagship Store" präsentiert Artist-in-Residence Ingeborg Lockemann (GER) das Projekt "Werbebotschafter".
"Werbebotschafter" zeigt Werbung auf Großplakaten, gemalt von vier ghanaischen Künstlern: Joe Mensah, Daniel Jasper, Charles Dee und Simon Kladeh.
Die Plakate werben für europäische Firmen, deren aktuelle Auftritte, Claims, Hausfarben und Corporate Identities hier allseits bekannt sind. Mit der Plakatgestaltung wurden aber keine hiesigen Werbefirmen beauftragt, sondern Plakatmaler aus Ghana.
Die visuelle Kultur der dortigen Gesellschaft scheint in den Plakaten trotz der streng formulierten Firmenbriefings auf und so verändern die Künstler die angestrebten Werbebotschaften auf überraschende Weise.
