IMK SPEAKERS SERIES IN MEDIA AESTHETICS
10 May, 31 May, 7 June, and 14 June 2012, 13.15 Arne Næss Auditorium, Georg Morgenstiernes hus, University of Oslo
The recent decade has seen a rapid evolution in the field of digital media. Handheld electronic devices and urban screens are now being integrated into every aspect of urban life. GPS and augmented reality (AR) technologies have transformed the new generation of mobile devices from a communication and information platform into a navigational tool, fostering a new alignment of reality and image perception.
As a result, the image has been radically dislocated. The theory of the image needs to take these dislocations into account and exert a paradigm shift from ontology to typology and topology. We should not only ask what the image is, but rather how and where the image is. The speakers series aims to discuss the new ubiquity, mobility, and operability of the digital image in terms of aesthetic transformation. That is, in terms of how we experience images and urban space through the new digital and screen based modes of aisthesis.

The work consists of 90 truck scans made in 2011 by the customs office at the Norwegian-Swedish border at Svinesund. The scanner is the first of its kind in Europe. According to the artists, Metabolism can be seen as a composite image of Norway’s metabolism – the organism’s intake, transportation, and transformation of matter destined to build up and maintain the country’s substance.
The new project ART! POWER! funded by The Research Council of Norway and directed by Professor Tore Slaatta at the Department of Media and Communication will cooperate with the media aesthetic group, particularly in its focus on the visual arts. Tore has been a member of the media aesthetics group since the start, and looks forward to develop more activity and research that will engage also the media aesthetic researchers. Susanne Østbye Sæther, Helge Rønning and Ove Solum, who also participate in the media aesthetic group, are already involved in the project.
ART! POWER! is an interdisciplinary research project that both have a cultural policy orientation and a more aesthetic orientation, trying to link research on art fields with more focused research on the production of singular artist and works of art. The project will formally begin in 2012.
We have also the pleasure of welcoming guest researcher Steffen Krüger to IMK. Steffen has previously done research on aesthetics and propaganda during World War 2 from a psychoanalytical perspective, and he is still interested in psychoanalytical approaches to media communication.
In his on-going research project, Steffen looks at the relation between comical and political communication in various countries.

Welcome to our new Media Aesthetic colleague, post.doc. Ingrid Hoelzl. In her research project SCREENS - The Place of the Image in Digital Culture, she will use case studies of contemporary screen-based art to investigate how the new generic display mode - the screen - affects the conception and the production of images, and further how the myriad forms and uses of urban screens contribute to the constitution of the shared space through which images and citizens circulate and communicate.
