art and internet

Location of I and I Wanted to See All the News From Today featured in the forthcoming book Art and the Internet by Joanne McNeill and Domenico Quaranta.

Art and the Internet is a much-needed visual survey of art influenced by, situated on and taking the subject of the internet over the last two and a half decades. From the early 1990s the internet has had multiple roles in art, not least in defining several new genres of practitioners, from early networked art to new forms of interactive and participatory works, but also because it is the great aggregator of all art, past and present. Art and the Internet examines the legacy of the internet on art, and, importantly, illuminates how artists and institutions are using it and why.

Framing the digital: materialising new media (31 Jan 2013)

Professor Susan Collins gave a UCL Lunch Hour Lecture about SCEMFA and featured several works by Martin.

How are artists translating or materialising digital works for gallery and physical situations? Professor Collins shows a snapshot of works coming out of the Slade and the Slade Centre for Electronic Media in Fine Art (SCEMFA) over the past decade that explore the material of the digital. This lecture explores a range of groundbreaking perspectives and manifestations.

Slade Video Collection – The Space

The Space

The Space have published a curated collection of single screen videos by 12 artists at the Slade School of Fine Art, which demonstrates the broad range of approaches, techniques and experimentation explored by Slade students and recent Slade Alumni. This offers a unique opportunity to see a diverse collection of challenging, experimental work which would only previously have been available to those who had visited the Slade degree shows last year. Organised by Martin John Callanan.

A Planetary Order on the cover of Leonardo Journal (volume 45, issue 4, 2012)

A Planetary Order (Terrestrial Cloud Globe) article and on the cover of Leonardo Journal volume 45, issue 4, 2012.

Martin John Callanan

Leonardo is today’s leading international journal on the application of contemporary science and technology to the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts on science and technology. With an emphasis on peer reviewed writings by artists, the journal seeks to ensure that the artist’s voice is integral to the development of new technologies, materials, and methods.

In Search of the Miraculous

SIGGRAPH 2012 Art Gallery: In Search of the Miraculous presents exceptional digital and technologically mediated artworks that explore the existence of wonderment, mystery, and awe in today’s world of mediating technologies and abundant data. Of the nearly 400 submissions, 12 were hand-picked by a jury to be exhibited at SIGGRAPH 2012, 5-9 August at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The jury included a wide range of artists, designers, technologists, and critics hailing from academia, industry, and the independent art world.

Osman Khan, SIGGRAPH 2012 Art Gallery Chair writes of A Planetary Order:

In what at first may look to be a common Earth globe, Callanan’s A Planetary Order makes a poetic statement by shifting our attention from the usual geographic information by voiding the usual terrestrial markings, and instead presents an immortalized ephemeral instant, eternalizing a fleeting moment shared by the global whole, giving us pause to reconsider what really matters in this world.

May You Live in Interesting Times

22 October 2009, 1-4pm, Firstspace, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff

As part of May You Live in Interesting Times, Festival of Creative Technology, Chapter and WARP are organising two further seminars as part of The Centre is Here. The seminars will focus attention on the professional development of artists in Wales. This time The Centre is Here aims to offer artists the opportunity to hear first-hand a range of arts professionals talk about professional practice in the digital era. Each of the seminars will have a specific theme related to how artists can best use online, digital and creative technologies to develop and promote their work. Topics will include the use of social networking sites, artistsʼ blogs, websites, digital portfolios and show reels.

Social Networking: This seminar will look at how artists can use social networking as a tool for the promotion of their practice and the creation of online artistic communities. It will also focus on the uses of these networks as places to generate new work, and to exhibit work to a wider public.

Speakers are: Martin John Callanan & Emily Speed
