Open Feedback Loop

"Open Feedback Loop" is a series of talks and workshops happening as
part of the project "autonomous systems" run by mur.at. We present and
discuss works, tools, practices and thoughts that deal with autonomy,
systemic and eco-systemic theories and interdependence in relation to
art and technology and their underlying social and aesthetical
paradigms, including contributions from different fields such as sound
and digital art, game design and performative art.

The series is free and open to the public and offers an open space for
inspiration for everyone interested in the field. All events are held
online in „big blue button“. Please register via email; entry link is
sent upon request.

Info and registration: suonoreale at mur.at

# OFL 2 – 03. July 2021, 20-21.30h Vienna time
Damjan Jovanovic

Damjan Jovanovic will present a number of his ongoing projects that
explore themes such as personhood, ecology and artificial intelligence,
and how their entanglement with simulations and video games brings about
new ways of worldmaking. Damjan is an architect, educator and software
designer. He works as a Full-Time faculty at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles.
Damjan’s work centers on the development of experimental software, and
his interests lie in investigating the culture and aesthetics of
software platforms, as well as questions of contemporary design
education, authorship and creativity.


# OFL 3 – 13. July 2021, 19.00-20.30h Vienna time
Marta Zapparoli - Listening Into The Ether

In her talk, sound artist Marta Zapparoli talks about her work using
radio waves as creative medium for sound, about the beauty of
atmospheric noise, antenna-building as instrument design, technical
considerations of signal sniffing and the aesthetics of radio art.



as if they were flowers

a multimodal exhibition

With the exhibition "as if they were flowers", we conclude a year of
work centered on the topic of "autonomous systems". A group of young
artists explores the boundaries of autonomy and entanglement related to
the question "what / where is the autonomous self?". The project
unfolded across several iterations where discussions, ideas and artworks
were generated that will be presented in an unfolding exhibition that
happens both on-site in Graz and online at MozillaHubs.

project group: Alyssa Aska, Alisa Kobzar, Daniele Pozzi, Pablo Abelardo,

The on-site exhibition is open from 13.-16. July 2021 @ Kunstraum

The online exhibition will be open as part of the XCOAX conference, we
will share the link in due time!
