SOFTWARE TAKES COMMAND

image

Software Takes Command, a discussion on software’s influence on design, art, data and culture, took place this past Wednesday at Eyebeam Storefront. Lev Manovich discussed key ideas from his new book Software Takes Command (Bloomsbury Academic, 2013). Christiane Paul talked about software art’s aesthetics and poetics, as well as its position within art history and the artworld at large. Paul D. Miller (D.J. Spooky) presented his forthcoming book The Imaginary App - an anthology of art and scholarship on app-computing co-authored by Svitlana Matviyenko. Artist and Eyebeam Fellow Katie Torn talked about her her transition from traditional art and illustration to working in a complete 3D Maya-generated environment.

The Emoji Art & Design Show
In today’s visually oriented culture, which increasingly communicates through images rather than text, emoji comprise a kind of “visual vernacular,” a language that conveys humor, ambiguity and personality as well as meaning. 
This visual form of communication isn’t necessarily new—from cave paintings, to hieroglyphics, to religious and mythological symbols encoded in traditional painting and sculpture, we’ve been communicating through images since the dawn of mankind—but its dominance in culture today, especially among millennials, seems to indicate a greater shift in our approach to self-expression.
If you’re an artist or designer working with emoji, send us your work. We’re looking for a diverse array of interpretations and appropriations of the emoji that exist both on and offline. The show welcomes new and existing works from a variety of mediums ranging from net art, to painting and sculpture, video and performance.
You can find out more about the show and how to submit at the project’s website here
