UB Emerging Practices Graduate Research Forum

UB Emerging Practices Graduate Research Forum Emerging Practices is an interdisciplinary initiative between the departments of Media Study, Visual Studies, and Architecture at the University at Buffalo

The MFA in Fine Arts with a focus in Emerging Practices (EP) is a joint effort between the departments of Visual Studies, Media Study and Architecture at the University at Buffalo, which are committed to exploring the interdisciplinary space between emerging technologies and the arts. Emerging Practices students focus on exploring the technical, tactical, cultural and communicative potential of emerging technologies such as interactive multi-media, electronic installation, networked telematic communication, robotics, three-dimensional simulation, biotechnology, and algorithmic image synthesis. Typically, artists and art/media programs are defined by the media forms they employ. However, we choose not to define practice based on a medium in favor of a broader strategy of techno-cultural investigation that continuously re-defines its object. Guiding faculty include Marc Bolen, Jordan Geiger, Stephanie Rothenberg, Teri Rueb, Mark Shepard, Paul Vanouse,

Fictional Worlds/Possible Futures: Philo-Fiction as Method, DEC 1st & 2nd
Hosted by The Department of Media Study, SUNY at Buffalo with The New Centre for Research & Practice

This two-part event explores fictional worlds and possible futures with François Laruelle’s philo-fiction as a method of practice and theory.

Part I: Talk & Discussion, Worlds of What Could Have Been: Philo-Fiction as Method, the Archive, and Conceptual Invention‘ by Ben Woodard & Tony Yanick (New Centre for Research and Practice). Dec 1st, 7PM @ SUNY Buffalo, Department of Media Study, Room: CFA 112 (with Livestream/ Digital Participation hosted by the New Centre for Research & Practice). Come join and discuss!

Part II: Philo-Fiction Performance lab by Yvette Granata & Shane Farrell (SUNY Buffalo). Dec 2, 6PM @ Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, (email [email protected] to sign up as a participant)

In this philo-fiction lab, we will introduce a framework for the practice of possible worlds through the collective creation of crypto-personas and invite participants to perform radical fictions with us. While non-philosophy is a practice that uses philosophy as a material, and becomes thought-in-action, in this workshop our material will be the found strangeness of cryptopersonas of the deeb web. We will operationalize non-philosophy’s method as a collective art practice of crypto-persona proliferation. After an introduction to our collection of cryptopersona material, we will collectively identify elements that will become our material for the exploration of the cryptopersona through public thinking/movement. Our aim is to perform a collective radical strangeness as a way of exploring political and conceptual possibles.

Folks can sign up as performance participants by emailing me: [email protected]

Hey friends and colleagues, though you've likely heard about it through many channels at this point, UB DMS Emerging Practices PhD grad Paul Lloyd Sargent (the human typing this message) has officially launched his Erie Basin Meets Erie Basin, Vol. III: #ArtificialCorridors dérive project for this summer, intent upon traveling between Buffalo and NYC. If all goes well, the trash-filled boat will embark from Rich Marina this Wednesday (late morning? early afternoon?) to aim for Lockport, NY, by nightfall. Follow the project on its own FB page, Twitter etc by "Liking" the page. In the meantime, here's a snap of the trash "donated" by in the launch event, "HEY NYC! TAKE BACK YR SH#T!," at Silo City this past Saturday.

So the boat christening/launch of #ArtificialCorridors on Saturday went great! Thanks to all who came out. And NYC, Buffalo has something for you...

"Whereas the public square was once the quintessential place to air grievances, display solidarity, express difference, celebrate similarity, remember, mourn and reinforce shared values of right and wrong, it is no longer the only anchor for interactions in the public realm. That geography has been relocated to a novel terrain; one that encourages exploration of mobile location based public art. Moreover, public space is now truly open, as artworks can be placed anywhere in the world, without prior permission from government or private authorities–with profound implications for art in the public sphere and the discourse that surrounds it."

Several faculty, Phd/grads and alumni from the Departments of Visual Studies, Media Study and Architecture made their way out to the enchanted desert landscape of northern New Mexico for the 2012 International Symposia on Electronic Art (ISEA). The International Symposia on Electronic Art is one of the most important academic gatherings on electronic art world-wide, bringing together the worlds of art and science. Each year the festival takes place in a different global location. This year’s theme “Machine Wilderness” referenced the “New Mexico region as an area of rapid growth and technology within vast expanses of open land, and presents visions of a more humane interaction between technology and wilderness in which machines can take many forms to support life on Earth.” The festival was divided into the subthemes Radical Cosmologies, Trans-Species Habitats, Dynamobilities and Econotopias which was directed by Dept of Visual Studies Professor Stephanie Rothenberg focused on emerging creative economies.

Student participation included current Media Study PhD grad Paul Sargent and grads Laura Curry and Jordan Dalton. Visual Studies alumni included Alice Alexandrescu, Tim Scaffidi, Marc Tomko, Caitlin Cass. Media Study alumni included Anna Schime, Liz Flyntz and Cayden Mak.

Faculty included Visual Studies professors Paul Vanouse , Joan Linder and Stephanie Rothenberg; Media Study professors Teri Rueb, Marc Bolen and Josephine Anstey and Architecture professor Jordan Geiger.
