Beth Wexler

Beth Wexler plays with tem­po­ral trans­for­ma­tions of pop­u­lar cul­ture. Sam­pling from 80s and 90s tele­vi­sion, the artist manip­u­lates imagery that is fad­ing into obso­les­cence to cre­ate new mean­ing. Her time based pieces add a human­iz­ing touch of spec­ta­cle to pre­vi­ously over scripted nar­ra­tives. Her gen­er­a­tive works are sys­tems that pro­voke the way that we digest media. 

Read Jeffrey Pena’s interview with Beth about remix­ing and gen­er­a­tive art.

Babelcast: Critical Intelligence Gap

Babel

The babelcast-mosaic is an algorithmic, computer-generated podcast series created from fragmented and distorted sounds of U.S. and World leaders. Juxtaposed and mixed with dynamic noise textures, the resulting ambient soundscape offers a unique musical perspective on mass media, language, and current events. This enhanced version adds algorithmically selected and manipulated still images. Each edition is built exclusively from sounds and images harvested within a defined period of days.

Critical Gap In In telligence:  

It depends on what your definition of Isis...

Marduk, Murdak, Murdoch

Etemenanki (Sumerian: “temple of the foundation of heaven and earth”) was the name of a ziggurat dedicated to Marduk in the city of Babylon. It was famously rebuilt by the 6th century BC Neo-Babylonian dynasty rulers Nabopolassar and Nebuchadnezzar II. According to modern scholars such as Stephen L. Harris, the biblical story of the Tower of Babel was likely influenced by Etemenanki during the Babylonian captivity of the Hebrews.

Nebuchadnezzar wrote that the original tower had been built in antiquity: “A former king built the Temple of the Seven Lights of the Earth, but he did not complete its head. Since a remote time, people had abandoned it, without order expressing their words. Since that time earthquakes and lightning had dispersed its sun-dried clay; the bricks of the casing had split, and the earth of the interior had been scattered in heaps.”

The Greek historian Herodotus (440 BC) later wrote of this ziggurat, which he called the “Temple of Zeus Belus”, giving an account of its vast dimensions.

The already decayed Great Ziggurat of Babylon was finally destroyed by Alexander the Great in an attempt to rebuild it. He managed to move the tiles of the tower to another location, but his death stopped the reconstruction. Since then only the base remains, but it is visible from Google Earth, which places its location at 32.5362583°N 44.4208252°E just south of Baghdad.

Kim Rugg Cut-Ups

“Some people like taking their time,” says artist Kim Rugg, whose artistic achievements are measured in millimeters, used X-ACTO blades and picas. We spent the afternoon with Rugg in her London home and studio talking about her work re-imagining newspapers, comics, stamps and cereal boxes using their existing form while rearranging their content. Kim finds inspiration from the mundane and common objects around us. Her wicked knife skills and tenacious attention to detail have created a body of work that is as impressive as it is curious.
