Dearest friend,

Sorry for such bad news today! I suppose you know about it , because
people have been communicating about that , in the last days. But I
decided to write to my best friends!

I am really sad about the passing of Arlindo Machado, last Sunday.
It was due to heart problems. He was not in good health for a long time.
Now, we need only remember and celebrate his wisdom and dedication. Many
memories and legacies: in my case, texts still from the 90s. Go to my
FB, where
I posted his classic and pioneering book in 88," A Arte do V?deo"
accompanied by an interview at MIS when he was launching the book. At this
time he was finishing his Ph.D. at PUC SP and was my Professor at USP in my
Master's with Julio Plaza support. Very young, even when he had only the
Master's degree, he was quite brilliant and vibrant by the creative mind of
artists. He used to visit me in each trip I did to S?o Paulo, for
discussing my projects and making plans for Brazil. I have a great text
about my "aesthetic of metamorphosis " thesis, and we discussed the
respective exhibitions.
Rare moments! OMG, only SAUDADES , Brazilian word that strongly says our
feelings!

We will miss you , irreplaceable, Arlindo! Cheers to your magnificent life!

How are you doing? My SAUDADES too!

Forte abra?o!!

Diana

Yasminer friends,
Tania Fraga sends us these Unforgettable Memories of Arlindo Machado:
? Virtuality, Visuality & Reality

We encourage all those who knew Arlindo to share with us their memories
as part of reinventing how we remember for the future in this digital age,
when post people who are dying during the pandemic will be un-remembered

Roger Malina

The fragments of memories I have of Arlindo Machado are memorable. I
met him in 1989, at the first meeting of Art and Technology at the
University of Brasilia, a time when I was looking for ways to express
myself using the computer, what we now call computer art.

His reflections on art and technology enchanted me. They brought to me
the theories of Vil?m Flusser about the role of the artist and the
philosopher when working with technical images. Such a purpose is to
glimpse the contents of semiotic machines as devices programmed with
"stupid automation" in a world of "empty symbols," that constrain the
"space for freedom."[1]



There is a need to learn to "think with images,"[2] sounds, and words.
The exponential combination of possibilities ? explained in the
Mallarm? dice game and potentially found in the computer-generated
images ? emerges from the mysterious world of computer graphics as an
infinite universe of options, making the pure mathematical abstraction
concrete, visible. This meeting was a sublime moment that made me
inquire about what the "thingness" of things consists of and what
reality is.


Arlindo taught me that video-graphic images permit "writing the
movement," allowing the artist to "interfere in the construction of
the image," subvert them, play and experiment with them, manage signs
in languages of sensitivity and imagination, making the sensitive
intelligible. He had the miraculous ability to bring these themes to
life, making me fall in love with such possible fields. It also could
make me envision the possibility of creating a visual and virtual
language with numbers.


In his classes and lectures, he showed us that the sign and symbolic
space is revealed in the poetic flashes of what happens, presenting
itself, showing off as an experiment that allows experimentation with
language. An investigation that led me to embark on a creative act
that carries in its popular name ? virtual reality ? an apparent
paradox. Any work that expresses itself as visual and virtual realms
presents the virtual giving it visibility, and therefore reality. In
this way, it made the act of thinking and conceiving language an
adventure that allows us to realize and experience this something.


I learned from Arlindo to observe the signs and signals emanating from
the things and beings surrounding us; to face the enormous complexity
of the perceptual field, its objects, its energies. Its peculiar
creatures and its multiple aspects allow an immediate knowledge
entwined in psychic activity, as an intersection of the world with the
inner, subjective states, characterizing it as data of experience in
the consciousness of the individual who interprets them and gives them
meanings. The mirror of the mind reflects fragments of a world outside
that mind, but which passes through it, presenting itself as
reflections of a complex totality. We give meanings to these reflexes,
interpreting them from the mythopoetic configurations available in our
repertoires of cognitive and sensory beings.


I take this moment to arouse the readers' curiosity and invite them to
enjoy discovering Arlindo's texts. There are many, and I will not list
them here. I highlight, however, those who influenced me the most:
"The Art of Video," "The Fourth Iconoclasm," "Machines and Imaginary,"
and "The Subject on the Screen," which, according to him, I was the
"inspiring muse of many parts of this book." When Arlindo talked about
the sensual character of stereoscopic images and the eroticism of
their look, I remember that he irreverently provoked me and made me
say to full auditoriums the (private) name of one of this stereoscopic
work: red butt torus. In the book "The Fourth Iconoclasm," we will
find an extensive discussion on the importance of non-verbal
communication and expression languages as being perfectly adequate for
the production of knowledge and reflection.


I learned from Arlindo to observe the signs and signals emanating from
the things and beings surrounding us; to face the enormous complexity
of the perceptual field, its objects, its energies. Its peculiar
creatures and its multiple aspects allow an immediate knowledge
entwined in psychic activity, as an intersection of the world with the
inner, subjective states, characterizing it as data of experience in
the consciousness of the individual who interprets them and gives them
meanings. The mirror of the mind reflects fragments of a world outside
that mind, but which passes through it, presenting itself as
reflections of a complex totality. We give meanings to these reflexes,
interpreting them from the mythopoetic configurations available in our
repertoires of cognitive and sensory beings.


With his enormous generosity, during my doctorate, which he
supervised, Arlindo gave me a copy of his book still in press,
"Machines and Imaginary." In this book, Arlindo discusses the
importance of the process in itself for the creation of artworks, of
simulation, Mallarm?'s dream, the status of reality, and the hegemony
of electronic image, among many other related subjects. For Arlindo,
the virtual signs conquer the regime of becoming realities: tangible
and intangible, virtual, visual, immaterial, and material, inherent,
possible, interior, psychic, transcendent realities. Realms that are
interpreted by the sensors available in the neural system and are
translated and evaluated, configuring themselves as mental processes,
presenting themselves as perceptions that take the form of thoughts.


Therefore, we infer that thought expresses itself through signs, and,
through them, represents, remembers, and presents the objects that
exist in the world outside of it ? thought ? and that with them ?
objects ? establish relations.


Thoughts are worthy things. Artists usually characterize them as
visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, gustatory, and intuitive
thoughts. They enable discernment and the ability to unveil, in all
their fullness, a corresponding character, of a different order from
that achieved through discursive or analytical knowledge, used by
philosophers and scientists.


The direct, immediate, and current apprehension of a
sign?thing?symbol, in its reality, is one of the physical
characteristics of the contemporary artist's work. In this, the
material realm presents itself as phenomenal fields composed of
possibilities updated through visual, aural, tactile, taste, and
olfactory experimentation. This characteristic is what makes virtual
domains present themselves as reality.


How many hours of discussions and provocations about Flusser's
statements related to the artist's need, or not, to penetrate the
"interior of the black box, interfering in its internal workings (?)
since all criticism of the technical image must aim at whitening that
box."[3]



At that time, there were countless questions formed in my mind: the
artist's role is the act of organizing experiments with the things
that presented and represented something, being present because they
exist to become the experience of those who experience them and
interact with them? How does something that presents itself virtual,
identify itself as numbers, appear perceptible gaining existence as a
thing or potential to be a thing? Are these artistic virtual realities
something more than experimental reflections of a mathematical world?
Although they capture the attention of the participants, impose
themselves on their sensations, and transform vague feelings ?
qualities intertwined in the nebulous here and now ? into a dominant
perceptual process, are these processes expressions of the artist's
sensitive and sensory universe? Are they also characterized as
hypermedia, mediating interdependent and plural signs?

Arlindo challenged me frequently. One of those challenges was to work
with whites. This challenge required years of research, and it took a
long time to get a bold result. Computer graphics domains result
through the manipulation of light and achieving white variations
within the environment created a problematic situation. Therefore, I
photographed snowy landscapes in countless ways, with different
lighting and points of view, until I could understand how to
accomplish something meaningful with withes, using computer graphics.
The virtual worlds Branqueza (Whiteness) and Negreza (Blackness),
resulted from this experimental process and are part of the
interactive virtual scenarios of the MindFluctuations brain-computer
dance spectacle[4].



My relationship with Arlindo led me to consider the artist as one who
explores, discovers, and realizes virtual realms of which they are not
sure. Therefore, the artist aims to exercise sensitivities, arouse
curiosities, and boost actions for themselves and others. The artist
is the individual who delivers universes of possibilities, provoking,
in the other, a quality of apprehension of something, leading the
consciousness to a state of availability emptied of everything, except
the pure sensation resulting from the effect that this something
produced. It blurs the boundaries between the quality that presents
itself and the reaction that it provides in the mind of the individual
who experiences it[5].



To conclude, I tell that the unforgettable memories I have from my
contact with Arlindo lead me to oscillate with malleability in a
flexible universe of multiplicities and numbers. Sometimes I recall a
sensitive fact, other times another. There are many incomplete
memories, resulting in a discontinuous becoming of sensations and
emotions.


In Brazil, Arlindo Machado was one of the most influential theorists,
defining the parameters for the evolution of techniques and languages
related to technical images. He outlined guidelines for developing new
poetic possibilities, encouraging experimentation, and influencing
more than one generation of artists, producers, and thinkers working
with video art, and computer art. Arlindo has always supported the
experimental adventure of creating poetic assemblages in the process
of becoming, allowing artists to organize, disorganize, reorganize,
and transform space-time environments, experiencing their endless and
unpredictable possibilities.


For me, Arlindo continues and will continue alive in my work since my
ways of thinking, and my world views entwine with his ideas.

yasminers
details below of the funeral for frank popper at the Pere Lachaise in
Paris July 28
Franck Ancel will be representing Leonardo- as mentioned i am
compiling a list of short
memories/testimonials for those of you who met or worked with him=send
me by email
at rmalina@alum.mit.edu

and please if you are aware of any colleagues in the YASMIN network who have
passed away please tell us

on a somber note, we think we need to re-invent how we remember our
colleagues who
are passing away during the pandemic= the major pandemics in the last
millenia were
often documented in books and paper and monuments- digital culture has
little memory
because digital media are unstable- we as an art,sci.tech community how can
we invent new ways to remember for the future ?

Roger malina

the details for the funeral are appended

Chers amis,
je vous remercie infiniment de vos messages et de vos marques d'amiti?
envers Frank qui m'ont beaucoup touch?e. Un dernier hommage lui sera
rendu, lors de ses obs?ques, au cimeti?re du P?re Lachaise, le mardi
28 juillet. Une c?r?monie d'adieu aura lieu ? 13h dans les salles du
Cr?matorium, 71 rue des Rondeaux, m?tro Gambetta (01 43 15 81 81) qui
commencera salle Montm?jean o? nous serions heureux que tous ceux qui
le souhaitent puissent s'exprimer. Vos t?moignages seront pr?cieux.
Vous comptiez beaucoup pour lui, vous ?tiez sa famille intellectuelle
et amicale privil?gi?e dont il parlait souvent. Beaucoup d'entre vous
ne pourront pas se d?placer mais ils pourront me faire parvenir
quelques lignes ? lire devant tous. La c?r?monie se poursuivra salle
Landowski juste ? c?t? dans un moment convivial. L'inhumation aura
lieu vers 15h. A cette occasion, les cendres d'Aline Dallier, d?c?d?e

yasminers
i have transferred these testimonies to frank popper who
just past away, and encourage those who knew and admired
him to share their memories here on the yasmin discussion list

his obituary by francoise py is at the end of this email

here is some of my memories

Frank Popper was a frequent visitor in our home in paris in
the 1950s and 1960s when i was a child- he would participate
in the chess evenings in our home, with frank and marjorie malina
and emerging kinetic artists but also other refugees in paris
from WWI

the discussions were lively- one of the points of argument was my father's
opinion that the contracts that commercial galleries in paris signed
with artists were exploitative
( eg the denise renee paris which championed the work of op art, kinetic art )
and that secondly the galleries had undue influence on the paris museum scene
which showed the work of artists who were marketed by the commercial galleries
over the independent artists who often did more amazing. At some point
the argument
became virulent as my father thought that popper was no longer an independent
intellectual but had sold out to the commercial art world-they broke
off relations

When my father frank malina died in 1981 I had to take over the running of the
Leonardo Journal. Frank Popper came to my fathers funeral and reached out to
me with an offer to help on Leonardo Journal again- we invited to
become an honorary
editor and he helped Leonardo Journal re-emerge and take wing again.

For many years we would meet in that cafe in the Louvre esplanade and discuss
the growing art,science and technology scene- he was enthusiastic about the
emerging digital arts and we published his seminal book
https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/technological-virtual-art

>From Technological to Virtual Art By Frank Popper

An influential and respected historian of art and technology analyzes
the development of immersive,
interactive new media art; includes detailed looks at the work of
such artists as Nam June Paik, John Maeda, and Jenny Holzer.

With his long history in the art world Popper was part of the Leonardo
'radar system' identifying emerging
artists and scientists and inviting them to submit articles for
leonardo, or other areas where he felt
artists were 'shifting the scene'

My final memory after he was unable to come out to paris cafes, was
that i exchanged
emails with him and phone calls up to his 101th birthday at the same
time that i was
working with students who i encouraged to read his work- yes he was a
100 and was
keen to know, and comment on, what young artists were doing that build
on his was of shaping
the narrative

with life expectancy growing in wealthier parts of the world, 100
years olds who cannot
leave their bed can teach and mentor 20 year olds, we as a community of practice
have to enable this trans-generational ferment and problem solving

at this time of pandemic we need to design new ways of remembering,
perhaps the art,
scince, technology community is well placed to re invent the funeral,
the obituary , the three
gun salute

thank you frank popper

I encourage yasminers who met or admired him to share with us their memories

Dear All,


Many thanks for your messages. I?m honoured to have known Frank and to
consider him one of my mentors. I have some very sweet memories about
our chats together in Paris when I was still a student. He was so kind
to write the endorsement of my book not long ago. I will never forget
his constant support and encouragement.


I?m on my way to Brittany. Please let me know about the funeral
arrangements when you can. I?d love to be there to say farewell to
dear Frank.


All my best wishes and love to you all,

Francesca

STORIES FROM THE FUTURE: Crisis as catalyst for carbon-neutrality
Workshop series, June - December 2020
as part of the COLLECTIVE PRACTICES program at ACUD MACHT NEU

The only times global greenhouse gas emissions have fallen in the past 200 years were during times of crisis: war, depression, or pandemic. This constant growth means we now have only 10 years to permanently reverse the rise of climate emissions and at most until mid-century to become carbon neutral if we are to avoid the most devastating effects of runaway climate change. How can?and must?we work together to create a world where our grandchildren can thrive?

In this workshop, participants will collaborate in several events that bring together scientific knowledge, creative energy, personal connections, and the will to act to envision the better way we want to be?10 years from now. What does it mean to ?degrow,? and remove fossil fuels from the economy in a way that improves our lives?
As we discuss this urgent question, we will begin to create the near future together. We will design artifacts from 2030: stories, poems, and songs; essays and articles; prototypes and sculpture. These artifacts will help make our vision reality, and point the way to the future we want.

The workshop is part of the COLLECTIVE PRACTICES program at ACUD MACHT NEU, picking up the thread in each of the program's four explorations (#NARRATIVES, #KNOWLEDGES, #CARE, and #RESISTANCE) to imagine?and begin to build?the future we want. The artifacts developed by the participants will be presented at a final event in December, taking shape, perhaps, as a speculative conference with presentations about how we changed the world, performances, or readings from speculative pieces developed, written or recorded during the workshop.

The series includes 4 public workshop sessions, conceived and led by Lisa Pettibone, with additional speakers invited to give impulse presentations. The active participation in the workshop series includes regular closed working sessions (1 per month) with Lisa.

Lisa Pettibone is an independent sustainability teacher, researcher, and writer. She is interested in radical belief systems like degrowth and the ideological change needed for societies to move away from capitalism. In addition to teaching, she enjoys experimenting with different media to talk about such as change, from academic writing to speculative fiction and performance to her podcast ?My Climate Diet? (myclimatediet.org).

Registration includes and requires the participation in the public as well as in the closed working sessions throughout the series.

The workshop will be held in English.

1st Workshop event: 7 June, 4-6pm CET

Registration Deadline: 1 June, 6pm CET

Roger, Kerry, et al.,

Without wishing any disrespect to Kerry, but in answer to Roger?s question, I intentionally did not respond to Kerry?s query because a) I do not feel qualified to do so having no knowledge of how others on this list identify and b) My own identity as either scientist &/or artist, if I were to consider it at all (which I prefer not to, as do not find these qualifiers relevant to my work), would fall somewhere on a 3D spectrum that includes many other identifiers, and shifts according to the day, minute to minute.

Best to all,

Dear All,

I appreciate very much Roger?s provocation that more ?unnecessary" research is called for in light of the Coronacene. In late capitalism/neoliberalism, ?necessary? is so often defined as serving corporate interests ahead of those of people, as if what is in the interest of profit for the few will, in some ill-defined ?long run,? benefit the broader public. In my view, the false ?logic? of fiduciary responsibility requires immediate eradication. In my recent thesis <https://digitalcommons.risd.edu/masterstheses/415/> I argue that we can look to earlier movements for inspiration on how to approach such an effort...

In the first half of the 20th century, in light of the absurdity of millions of deaths, both from WWI and the pandemic of 1918, the Dadaists and Surrealists challenged the brutal ?logic? that envisioned a kind of ?progress? that left so much suffering and destruction in its wake. I argue that knowledge produced by the contemporary environmental humanities?in keeping with the spirit of some in the earlier Romantic Naturalist and avant-garde movements?in powerfully producing alternative models?can contribute to the production of fair, just, ethical ?logics,? ones that have the power to replace prevailing exploitative ones.

I wrote the following sub-provocation as a follow-up to a Zoom call on the newly-forming Post Pandemic Provocations Group with Victoria Vesna, Nina Czegledy, Joel Slayton, and Roger Malina (text also available as a blog post <http://alycesantoro.blogspot.com/2020/04/an-anti-virus.html>?please see accompanying stop-action animation with sound on Facebook <https://www.facebook.com/alyce.santoro/videos/10156882334896813/> or Instagram <https://www.instagram.com/p/B-7jgVYF5rN/>).

Looking forward,
Alyce Santoro

AN ANTI-VIRUS

COVID-19 has quickly and profoundly illustrated the extent to which environments, livelihoods, and even microbiomes are globally-entangled and mutually-dependent; the health of one hinges, directly or indirectly, on the health of all.
Symbiosis is a term used in biology to describe cooperation between different species for shared benefit?lichens, a composite of algae and fungus, for example. Certain species of figs, wasps, and the parasites living within wasp guts are mutually dependent; each can exist only in relation to the others.[i] <applewebdata://60575647-C2BF-49AB-A343-D04FC030EF7D#_edn1>
While the microorganisms that dwell within humans are not necessarily specific to Homo sapiens, they are so abundant that approximately half ?our? genetic material does not belong to ?us,? but to microbes that play vital roles in nutrient absorption, immunity, and cognitive function.[ii] <applewebdata://60575647-C2BF-49AB-A343-D04FC030EF7D#_edn2> Microbiology reveals that human beings, at the same time that we are exquisitely unique individuals, we are also dynamic meta-organisms, cooperative communities teaming with life.

The microbes within us arrive from all around, gleaned from food, air, soil, and water. A bite of apple grown in New Zealand, a potato grown in Peru, a tomato grown in one?s own backyard. A breath of air that arrived on a breeze from the Sahara, captured and imparted to fellow riders in a subway car in New York, Paris, or Hong Kong. Aspects of seemingly distant people and places are constantly becoming parts of our infinitely individual, yet paradoxically multitudinous, selves. Fellow humans, other-than-humans, and even that which is not universally considered ?alive? (a water molecule, for example) all become parts of what make us ?us.?

COVID-19 brings the question of boundaries between beings starkly into focus: if we are all constantly exchanging biological (and other) material on a global scale, then perceived ?others? are, in tangible ways, extensions of ourselves. One possible remedy, then?not only for the problem of the current pandemic but for other catastrophes-in-progress?is to care for everything and everyone as if this is the case.

Perhaps this collective realization is a conceptual anti-virus with the radically beneficial, evolutionarily advantageous effect of driving those it touches into states of deep love and respect for the world and its inhabitants. Symptoms may include increased empathy, sense of wonder, and desire to be of service to others. This contagion becomes active simply by imagining it.

Kerry

your email got me thinking- as alyce santoro mentioned the Post Pandemic
Provocation
village is assembling

so you ask:

I was thinking that most yasmine posts come from scientists that present
art. Would that be true?
Kerry Turnstall

so : maybe after the pandemic we will abandon the current taxonomy of
knowledge
since it proved useless in having human societies anticipate , prepare for
and
deal with worldwide pandemics.

As the human population reaches 10 billion
with concentrations of people breathing on each other all the time in
absurdly
dense human settlements clearly we have
to abandon the idea that the categories of artist and scientist still make
sense ?

but more seriously why do you ask the question ? yasmin is a village that
has
been randomly formed over the last 10 years with individuals coming and
going

the anchors have been the moderators;
dimitris charitos does kerry's question make sense to you ?
Nina ?
Alyce ?
Guillermo ?
Jadwiga ?
Monica ?
Ricardo ?
Houssine ?
Roger ? oops thats me
Myriam ?
Pier Luigi ?
Marta ?
Ana ?
Hadel ?
Erika ?
Do you consider yourself artists or scientists or ?

I was thinking that most yasmine posts come from scientists that present
art. Would that be true?

Dr. D.Dayal
Operations/Regional Manager
Santander Bank Plc,
47-48 Piccadilly
PICCADILLY
W1J0DT
London United Kingdom

Hello friend,

I am Dr. Dr. D.Dayal, from Harlesden North West London, Head of Accounting Audit Department and formal senior programmer manager at Deutsche bank, here in England (Santander Bank Plc). I also worked for the Newest Ministers Bank Plc.

I am writing you about a business proposal that will be of an immense benefit to both of us. In my department, as the only Operations/Regional Manager Santander Bank Plc. I discovered a Sum of (Ј21,500,000,00) British Pounds (Twenty one million Five Hundred Thousand British Pounds) in an account that Belongs to one of our foreign customers (Late David McDowell Brown) an American citizen of Arlington Virginia, through the southern United States space shuttle Columbia, He died a single man.

The choice of contacting you aroused from the geographical nature of where you live, particularly due to the sensitivity of this transaction and the concealment here-in. Our bank has been waiting for any of the relatives to come-up for the claim but nobody has done that and i personally have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives. Hence you have similar email, I now seek your consent to present you as the next of kin (WILL BENEFICIARY) to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at (Ј21,500,000,00) British Pounds can be paid to you.

Nevertheless, this will be disbursed or shared in these percentages, 50% to me and 40% to you while 10% is for any expenses incurred during the transaction. I have secured all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up this claim we are making. All I need is to fill in your name(s) to the documents and legalize it in the court here to prove you as the legitimate beneficiary.
All I require now is your honest Co-operation, Confidentiality and Trust to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, I shall process claim in your name. I only require you send your valid identification details and I will authenticate the claim in your name.

Provide me the following below, as we have 7 days to run it through. It's very URGENT.

1. Full Name:
2. Your Direct Mobile Number:
3. Your Contact Address:
4. Occupation:
5. Age:
6. Sex:
7. Nationality:
Thanking you in anticipation of your important reply.

Yours Respectfully
Dr. D.Dayal

yasminers
In a previous email Alyce Santoro gave us three proocations for the
post pandemic summarised below
but in full at
http://malina.diatrope.com/2020/04/04/post-pandemic-provocation-no-7-b-c-before-and-a-c-after-the-coronacene/

Post Pandemic Provocation no 7: B.C. Before and A.C. After the Coronacene

Let us Give the Bacteria and Viruses a Voice- Artists can already hear
them, can you?

or : The Anthropocene has become the ?Coronacene?, with poetic sound
incense transforming us, thanks to the work of artscientists
described below.

This blog post on behalf of one of many small emerging post pandemic
Leonardo villages: seaded by Nina Czegledy, Joel Slayton, Diana Ayton
Shenker, Alyce Santoro, and 296 others named below.

We live in strange times when the desirable unexpected may need to be provoked.

Provocation 1:

In times like this, we need more un-necessary research,

Not Provocative: less un-necessary travel, email and texting and
un-necessary consumption

Provocation 2: but above all we must re-define the un-necessary.

(I learned these new-old ideas at the STARTS village reunion at IRCAM
in Paris ( https://vertigo.starts.eu/ )
just two weeks before the world started having a covid 19 panic attack.

So here we go:

Nina Czegledy, Joel Slayton and I were tasked by the new Leonardo CEO
Diana Ayton-Shenker (https://www.leonardo.info/led/19253 ) to think
aloud about how the Leonardo art,science,technology (
https://www.leonardo.info/welink-ten-easy-pieces ) villages of
villages could have an impact in these chaotic and turbulent times of
COVID 19.

We are slowly stewing a Proven?ale Bouillabaisse that could become a
Leonardo Post Pandemic Provocation Soup.

Alyce Santoro in the Yasmin village
(http://yasminlist.blogspot.com/2020/ ) proposed three types of
provocations:

she said:
I suggest that in the post-pandemic world, creative practices (ones
that arouse the imagination, senses, and emotions??
. The objective stance we are obliged to take as good scientists in
fact reinforces the notion that humans are autonomous entities/outside
observers, separate from one another and the biosphere?
An Intricate Ensemble: The Art-Science of An Ecological Imaginary for
the Anthropocene Epoch? is available for download in its entirety at
RISD Digital Commons:
https://digitalcommons.risd.edu/masterstheses/415/
<https://digitalcommons.risd.edu/masterstheses/415/>.

No doubt members of our villages can come up with others ? Rap them out !

The good news is that a team of artscience researchers have already
developed the methods to hear the sounds of bacteria, but also viruses
(ask Scot Gresham Lancaster, Gagan Wig and Sharath Chandra Ram who
have pioneered techniques through our Data Stethoscope projects: )

Watch the YouTube video led by Ritwik Kaikini that shows the simple
techniques that artists, working with scientists, developed to listen
to the sound of bacteria colonies growing, expanding and also dying.

If only we could hear the Corona Virus COVID 19, then humans could
adapt their behaviors to co-exist. Oops we do not want to destroy
viruses and bacteria, we need them for us to exist at all, we need to
be all in the microbiome happy together.

So below, is the illustration of one technique for hearing bacteria,
there are many, by the UTD Dallas ArtSciLab (
https://artscilab.atec.io/ ) with the Gassensmith Bio Chemistry Lab

Here below , in turn, in detail:

A) Alyce Santoro?s Threefold Provocation

Followed by the

B) BioLux Chants project that allowed humans to hear the sound of
bacteria singing for the first time. Listen here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-pmmKRMT9w

C) Ayen Deng and her team or artistphysicists have been giving voice
to carbon nanotubes that could be useful to help us co exist with
Covid 19.

Roger in Dallas, please phone/txt/ +15108532007 if urgent
The Malinas+1 are fine, but we have friends with Covid19
Take care.

Dear Roger and All,

I would like to offer to the group a recently-completed project that, I believe, specifically addresses your questions regarding catalysts for alternative imaginaries?Romantic Naturalists, Dadaists, Surrealists, anarchists, radical biologists, social ecologists, and improvising musicians provide the clues. In a nutshell, I suggest practices and frameworks that emphasize and enhance collaboration, spontaneity, care, the ludic, and the dialectical, in defying convention, contain the potential to subvert it.

Provocations:

1. I suggest that in the post-pandemic world, creative practices (ones that arouse the imagination, senses, and emotions??the marvelous? as sought by both the Romantic Naturalists and the Surrealists) must be embraced as essential forms of knowledge production in and of themselves. These can be constructively applied?not simply as embellishment or in a support capacity?but in concert with science?s rigorous and dispassionate methods.

2. The objective stance we are obliged to take as good scientists in fact reinforces the notion that humans are autonomous entities/outside observers, separate from one another and the biosphere?the virus, however, powerfully demonstrates the ways in which humanity is interwoven with and inseparable from the vast milieu of planetary systems and forces. Can dualism be applied when due, while undue dualism is undone?

?An Intricate Ensemble: The Art-Science of An Ecological Imaginary for the Anthropocene Epoch" is available for download in its entirety at RISD Digital Commons: https://digitalcommons.risd.edu/masterstheses/415/ <https://digitalcommons.risd.edu/masterstheses/415/>. Feedback, comments, and critique welcome.

I am grateful to you, Nina, and Joel for bringing this topic to the list, and look forward to the ensuing discussion!

With best regards,
Alyce Santoro
