Stanza. Pervasive Media in The City. 2004

From Fixed Assets to open Systems and Media visualisations.

The new-ness of the internet is still a viable claim. The internets ability to draw assets and data to create post modern allegory allows all sorts of media visualisations. The internet presents of a myriad ways to create ephemeral art across cross networks using all sorts of data information and media. The internet provides gateways and access for all, the editing process, mash-ups, authors as editors, as choice makers, as decision makers.

One can create these gateways oneself as artists to allow other access ones information and data create organic, generative ever changing artworks and experiences which is what Stanza does.

The development of Stanza’s work has shifted from asset gathering and media collection as artworks into a new studio space online. In earlier works Stanza used video cameras and sound recorders to gather assets or media to edit and make into artworks, that would be presented in various forms. Mostly edited and then used for distribution as editions or later online or displayed as output as art in an art gallery.

Even in earlier interactive pieces circa 1998 – 2002 Stanza was using assets and remixing re working these assets in system, usually mouse controlled and all displaying some level of user control, and generative visual aspect. IE in these interactive works Stanza is manipulating or allowing the user some control over my content , a remixing of this content.

This body of artwork has moved from fixed assets to interactive systems to open generative systems.  In 2002 Stanza started to develop less fixed systems that culled data and media from other sources. These mash-ups or interactive collage systems. ie Subfusion ,  CITYV etc.  In these systems there is no fixed tangible lists of assets (ie the are not databases) they are drawn or harvested via software from spaces.

What is data.  Sensors are affected by changes in the environment and these are the results ie numbers are polled of the sensors which are then interpreted via custom code.
