Leonardo Electronic Almanac


Established in 1993, Leonardo Electronic Almanac is the electronic arm of the pioneer art journal, Leonardo – Journal of Art, Science & Technology.

Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), jointly produced by Leonardo, the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (ISAST), and published by MIT Press, is an electronic journal dedicated to providing a forum for those who are interested in the realm where art, science and technology converge. For over a decade, LEA thrived as an international peer reviewed electronic journal and web archive covering the interaction of the arts, sciences, and technology.

In 2010 the journal was re-launched by Lanfranco Aceti, Editor in Chief, and Paul Brown, Co-editor, to meet the challenges of the publishing industry in the 21st century.

The new LEA will emphasize rapid publication of recent work and critical discussion on topics of current relevance. The new LEA encourages contributions from scholars, artists, scientists, educators and developers of new technological resources in the media arts.

Content will include feature articles on theoretical and technical perspectives, profiles of media arts facilities and projects, insights of artists using new media, reviews and interdisciplinary projects. Curated galleries of current new media artworks will also feature regularly. LEA will also publish special issues on topics including but certainly not limited to: locative media, electronic text and poetics, history of digital media, dromology, environmental issues, transculturalism, virtual art and digital culture.

Mobile Research Station no.1

On a wasteland at the centre of Berlin there is a strange apparition – Mobile Research Station no.1 has landed.

If you happen to be in Berlin over the next month please drop by and see the researchers in their luxury pod.

As a sculpture, Mobile Research Station no.1 is a curious hybrid – half hi-tech Antarctic Research Station / half rusty-broken-dumpster. Using a standard building-waste container as its basis, the station nevertheless forms a luxurious designer-pod provided for an eccentric set of researchers. Rather than researching the frozen wastes of Antarctica or the moons of Saturn, the invited artist/researchers have begun their research into the wilderness and urban zones of uncertainty that still lie at the centre of Berlin.

The invited researchers are: Martin John Callanan (London), Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson (Manchester/Berlin), Tim Knowles (London), Annika Lundgren (Gothenburg/Berlin), Katie Paterson (London), Esther Polak (Amsterdam)

Initial research can be seen on the Research Station Blog
Or, one of the researchers themselves can be found daily at the station anytime from now till the sept 20th.

Mobile Research Station no.1 at Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum
Research Communications Day: Sunday, September 20, 8 pm

The artists findings will be communicated in an evening of short presentations taking place in the park itself – drinks and snacks will be available from 8pm. [in case of bad weather mail for update…]

We hope to see you here in the wilderness.

The Nature of Systems

Technological systems create, fragment and transform landscapes: a long
video monitor stream, digitally mutated coastlines and strange urban
microclimates introduce fascinating artificial worlds, blurring the
boundaries between natural and constructed landscapes. Starting with
documentation of Chris Meigh-Andrews’ video installation Stream Line and
passing through a variety of spellbinding single-screen film and video
environments, the programme finishes with a presentation of Susan
Collins’ internet transmitted, real-time reconstruction of Loch
Faskally in Perthshire, Glenlandia.

Saturday 10 November 2007, at 8:40pm in NFT2

Thursday 16th August, Netting Smoke with Implicasphere. Cathy Haynes and Sally O’Reilly – co-editors of the mini-publication Implicasphere, will be pursuing their current obsession, Smoke. Implicasphere seeks to unearth curious ideas on a single theme by trailing its tangles of association in fields as diverse as folk craft, nuclear physics and film noir. For this event the co-editors ask specialist speakers and the audience to help chase all things smoky from the collective mental thicket into Implicasphere’s nets. Three speakers will offer smoke-oriented insights from their very different fields. Come along with images, texts, ideas for leads or simply vague thoughts on the theme of smoke to add to possible content!

The event will start at 19:00 with drinks from 18:00


DISLOCATE July 24th – August 5th 2007
Ginza Art Laboratory, Toyko, Japan.

Dislocate is a project which examines the relationship between art, technology and locality. Designed to facilitate international dialogue between artists, researchers and the public, Dislocate encourages exchange and reflection upon our experiences and perceptions of the interplay between these elements. This year the events will focus on our ability to reconnect with our location, seeking to explore, question and debate how can technology be used to heighten our engagement with our surroundings instead of isolating us from our immediate space.

Dislocate aims to explore the potential new media has to increase our awareness of our environment, enhance participation in our locality and community and transform our perceptions of the space we inhabit. Does new media enable us to plug into our locality, or is disconnection inevitable? As mobile and wireless technologies increasingly enable us to transcend space, our electrical roots are dug up, but are the roots which bind us with a place also cut? Dislocate will call into question the necessity of an intermediary to our immediate surroundings, asking if mediation is a means of connecting or distancing, an expansion or an obstruction? Dislocate offers the space to investigate the creative and social potential of new media to engage us with our direct locality and to ask what is the importance of where we are now?

Held over two sites, of contrasting locality, Dislocate will present new possibilities of our immediate space and the multiple connections which link to elsewhere. There will be a particular relationship to the surrounding site of the exhibition venues encouraging interaction and engagement with this environment while also fusing with spaces beyond.

The exhibition includes Martin John Callanan’s recent work Location of I, and Slade alumni Naoko Takahashi.
