Creative Disturbance

In a world where we can’t observe our individual
impact on ecological concerns, how can we spread awareness, and
induce behavioral change? How do we redesign a culture? This episode
will introduce many topics such as the implication of artists in complex
ecological situations, self-reflection towards carbon footprint and the
impact of space exploration.

Phill Niblock (b. 1933, USA) is an artist whose fifty-year career spans minimalist and experimental music, film and photography. Since 1985, he has served as director of Experimental Intermedia, a foundation for avant-garde music based in New York with a branch in Ghent, and curator of the foundation’s record label XI. Known for his thick, loud drones of music, Niblock’s signature sound is filled with microtones of instrumental timbres that generate many other tones in the performance space. In 2013, his diverse artistic career was the subject of a retrospective realised in partnership between Circuit (Contemporary Art Centre Lausanne) and Musée de l’Elysée. The following year Niblock was honoured with the prestigious Foundation for Contemporary Arts John Cage Award. 

LASER Nomad is born  during the scientific delirium madness residency in July 2015 at Djerassi Foundation, San Francisco, with members of Leonardo Journal, LASER and Luca Forcucci. The idea resides in the development of discussions, seminars, festivals, conferences and interviews between artists and scientists in various geographical nodes, in order to establish on the long-term a global interconnected dynamic lab to share and decolonise knowledge. We will engage with communities and break barriers between academic, independent art space and institutions.

Since 2006, Forcucci conducts research and collaborate with scientists in the fields of neuroscience, perception, biology and music technology. In addition his own research includes and observes the possibility to live within a constraint of 23 kg luggage, a hand luggage and a laptop folder. A proper research lab is difficult to transport. Therefore the idea of a nomad collaborative research facility for art, science and technology​ emerged.

Nos comparte algunas reflexiones sobre los procesos de socialización familiar, comunitaria y territorial entre los que se destacan los pilares de la educación. Donde los valores construidos alrededor de sus prácticas cotidianas en la Maloca (hogar tradicional), con el ambil (pasta echa de hojas de tabaco) y la Caguana (bebida tradicional a base de harina de yuca) muestran el entramado de interrelaciones sociales, culturales y políticas que se piensan y viven una educación para la diferencia y para vida, y no para la homogenización y la competencia.

La identidad, el respeto por la tradición oral y la preocupación por fortalecer la lengua propia “Bue” son características que acompañan el ser, sentir, pensar y actuar de Jhonatan Filisberto Palomares Biguidima, indígena Múrui del Amazonas; Jhonatan habla su lengua propia de manera fluida y en su dialogo expresa su arraigo territorial y preocupación por la crisis de la educación convencional (universitaria) en Colombia, a la que considera un complemento a su formación como Indígena.

Exploration, play, and mastery of digital computer equipment has been a growing trend in public education for quite some time. Because schools have increased an emphasis for STEM practices across the nation schools must transcend linear classroom structures. The Digital Arts and Technology Academy is an effort to challenge that and to provide a new curriculum model in Grand Prairie Independent School District with an emphasis on starting at the middle school level. Curriculum strategy and development is something that all schools seek to be better at and with standardized test score accountability systems in place, teachers are always looking at new ways to increase student interaction as well as problem solving and critical thinking skills. The Digital Arts and Technology Academy is an effort to transform a traditional middle school structure within a three-year program design and use an approach to bridge post-secondary educational goals with public school systems through technology and a non-traditional classroom engagement philosophy. This will be a brief demonstration of strategies that can be implemented for school improvement, increasing interactivity, and why for us the transformation of a traditional school system can work in public education.
