TV hack of WTTW Chicago in 1987 and the reaction.

Ztohoven TV hacks on 17.6.2007 morning

tags:

On Sunday 17.6.2007 morning, a Czech group hacked ČT2 the official TV station and broadcasted a atomic explosion in the Czech alps. The station was later bombarded with telephone calls from panicking viewers.

Statement in Czech: Nejsme žádná teroristická ani politická skupina, úcelem není jakkoli spolecnost strašit, ci manipulovat, tak jako jsme toho dennodenne svedky ve svete reálném tak mediálním. Ac už to jsou politické zájmy, nebo zájmy trhu, firem, nadnárodních spolecností skryte manipulují, tlací své produkty a ideje všemi možnými cestami do podvedomí obcana. Jemné narušení tohoto systému, apel na cistý rozum cloveka, jeho neovlivnitelnost, si myslíme nikdy neškodí ani v demokratické zemi. Proto umelecká skupina Ztohoven pred nekolika lety nabourala verejný prostor hl. mesta Praha, zpochybnila prostor reklamy v principu, i prostor konkrétní reklamy jako takové. Dne 17.06.2007 napadla mediální prostor, prostor televize. Narušila ho, zpochybnila jeho pravdivost, uveritelnost. Upozornila na možnou zámenu mediálního obrazu sveta za svet jako takový, reálný. Je vše, co denne vidíme na obrazovkách televizí pravdou, realitou? Je vše, co je nám médii, novinami, televizí, internetem za pravdu predkládáno opravdu pravdou? Tuto myšlenku má náš projekt uvést, pripomenout. Veríme, že i svobodný prostor verejnoprávní televize takovouto akci a tedy I své vlastní zpochybnení snese, bude apelem pro budoucnost a pripomínkou médiím pravdu dále presentovat. Díky za svobodná média, svobodný prostor pro spolecnost.

Gegenalltag

Die bulgarische Designerin Mariela Gemisheva und der englische Modemacher Japser Garvida stellen in der MAK NITE© fashion aktuellste Kollektionen vor. Die von Mariela Gemisheva geleitete Design-Klasse der Nationalen Kunst Akademie Sofia hat unter dem Label der Künstlerin eine Sommerkollektion mit dem Titel „Spider’s House“ entworfen. Symbolhaft zu Mustern von Spinnennetzen verwobene Linien, Figuren, Bedeutungen und Legenden bestechen in den Kreationen, deren Schnitt sich an der Form von Schirmen orientiert.

Jasper Garvida ließ sich in seiner ersten Prêt-à-porter-Kollektion „Bride of Frankenstein“ (Herbst/Winter 2007/08) von Gustav Klimts sinnlichen Musen und Hans Bellmers erotisierenden Darstellungen weiblicher Körper inspirieren. In Anlehnung an Bellmers Illustrationen sind seine Kreationen, die auf bestickten und mit Spitzenbesatz versehenen Stoffen basieren, vor allem in schwarz und weiß gehalten.

6-pack - Arduino-based controller

"6-pack is an open-ended, highly customisable, and ultra-portable physical controller based on the Arduino board. 6-pack is an Arduino shield consisting of 6 linear potentiometer sliders that can be assigned to different variables in the user's preferred software. It can be used to control a wide array of audio/video applications, from software synthesizers to HDJ systems. All, with a minimal footprint (3,5" x 2,5") and on the cheap (just a fraction of the cost of an equivalent MIDI interface). The project is open source. Schematics and source code included." 6-pack was developed by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Alex Posada see link: 6-pack

Volksware

Volksware , does not have its own production line, but Volksware labels the products of the people. Products, that have an emotional value for their owners, receive the Volksware label and become a Volksware – that means, “people’s product”. The Volksware shop is presented in galleries in different cities. People can bring their very personal clothes and they get the Volksware label on it. Each label has its own number and can be found on the internet with a peronsal story and photpgraphy.

VOLKSWARE
Volksware is the name of a brand. It exists since 1999. Volksware works in projects. Each idea is presented as a product, a “Volks’ Ware” that means “people’s product” or “product for people”. The product is presented as a concept, an unic specimen, a limited edition or as a product without its own production. The form of the product depends on the idea and concept that the project is about. Volksware is presented in galeries, shops, fairs, puplic spaces and other events that offer the best background and platform for each Volksware project; like for example the “Passagen 2003” while the Furniture Fair in Cologne (GE), the Centraal Museum in Den Haag (NL), Montevideo, the Netherlands Media Art Institute in Amsterdam (NL), Artforum in Berlin (GE) or the Designmai in Berlin (GE). Volksware explores the function of consumptions goods in the current time. The main focus is the meaning of consuming for the customer, the value creation of consumer products and its effect on the consumer. The project ©VOLKSWARE (2000) works on the emotional value of consumption goods for its owners; and the following project VOLKSWARE heim (2001) is looking at the forms of these goods, that invite the consumer for such an emotional value. The VOLKSWARE coat, € 759.987,20, the most expensive coat in the world (2004) is a project about the value creation of these goods. In how far does an already defined value of a product influence the consumer in its social, cultural and economic life? The VOLKSWARE carpet - a yard good (2005), questions the effects of the ‘over’-supply and mass production of products on the consumer. The interest of Volksware is the mass of products and not the brand of products. Volksware shell lead to a discussion about the sense and function of design and production in the current time.
