Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Item: Opportunity for Artists
Date: 14 August 2016, 3:04 pm
Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)
  • Join HCAC on September 16th from 6 – 8pm for its Annual Meeting & Grant Awards reception
  • Attend the closing reception for Paint It! on September 30th from 6 – 9pm for a great opportunity to reconnect with local artists and arts organizations and make a contribution to Re-create.
HCAC will also invite local galleries to set up pop-up shops during the reception on September 30 to benefit the fund.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Joseph is lead artist on Kill Box UAV; dealing with concept/content development, theoretical and historical research into drone warfare and primary lead on installation, development of publicity materials and archiving surrounding the project. Working with electronic and new media since 1983, his work in online gaming performance and electromechanical installation have been shown throughout the United States and abroad. In 2006 he began dead-in-iraq, typing consecutively all the names of America’s military casualties from the war in Iraq into the America’s Army first person shooter online recruiting game. DeLappe also created and directs the crowdsourced memorial project, iraqimemorial.org.

Malath Abbas is an independent game designer, artist and producer working on experimental and meaningful games. Since co-founding the award winning studio Quartic Llama, Malath is establishing Scotland’s first game collective and co-working space in order to support a community of independent game makers.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Date: 14 August 2016, 3:04 pm
Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)
  • Join HCAC on September 16th from 6 – 8pm for its Annual Meeting & Grant Awards reception
  • Attend the closing reception for Paint It! on September 30th from 6 – 9pm for a great opportunity to reconnect with local artists and arts organizations and make a contribution to Re-create.
HCAC will also invite local galleries to set up pop-up shops during the reception on September 30 to benefit the fund.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

BIOGRAPHIES

He is a Professor in the Department of Art at the University of Nevada where he directs the Digital Media program. Joseph is lead artist on Kill Box UAV; dealing with concept/content development, theoretical and historical research into drone warfare and primary lead on installation, development of publicity materials and archiving surrounding the project. Working with electronic and new media since 1983, his work in online gaming performance and electromechanical installation have been shown throughout the United States and abroad. In 2006 he began dead-in-iraq, typing consecutively all the names of America’s military casualties from the war in Iraq into the America’s Army first person shooter online recruiting game. DeLappe also created and directs the crowdsourced memorial project, iraqimemorial.org.

Malath Abbas is an independent game designer, artist and producer working on experimental and meaningful games. Since co-founding the award winning studio Quartic Llama, Malath is establishing Scotland’s first game collective and co-working space in order to support a community of independent game makers. His current work includes Kill Box, an online game and interactive installation that critically explores the nature of drone warfare, its complexities and consequences.

Tom deMajo is a digital artist, electronic musician and sound designer, and lead designer for project drone. Tom is responsible for unifying the conceptual, experiential, visual and audio aspects of the project, driving the aesthetics and sound in the game. Tom’s work has covered film, animation, games, sound installations and music. He has toured globally as part of electronic music duo Warp Technique, and is a co-founder of Quartic Llama; independent games company. He was designer, sound designer, composer and artist on the award- winning game “other” made with Malath Abbas and in partnership with the National Theatre Scotland. He has collaborated extensively with artists, practitioners and institutions in Scotland and locally such as National Theatre Scotland, Museum of Scotland, Sink, and recently Hot Chocolate and Scottish Dance Theatre.

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)
  • Join HCAC on September 16th from 6 – 8pm for its Annual Meeting & Grant Awards reception
  • Attend the closing reception for Paint It! on September 30th from 6 – 9pm for a great opportunity to reconnect with local artists and arts organizations and make a contribution to Re-create.
HCAC will also invite local galleries to set up pop-up shops during the reception on September 30 to benefit the fund.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)

  • Attend the closing reception for Paint It! on September 30th from 6 – 9pm for a great opportunity to reconnect with local artists and arts organizations and make a contribution to Re-create.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

BIOGRAPHIES

Working with electronic and new media since 1983, his work in online gaming performance and electromechanical installation have been shown throughout the United States and abroad. In 2006 he began dead-in-iraq, typing consecutively all the names of America’s military casualties from the war in Iraq into the America’s Army first person shooter online recruiting game. DeLappe also created and directs the crowdsourced memorial project, iraqimemorial.org.

Malath Abbas is an independent game designer, artist and producer working on experimental and meaningful games. Since co-founding the award winning studio Quartic Llama, Malath is establishing Scotland’s first game collective and co-working space in order to support a community of independent game makers.

Tom deMajo is a digital artist, electronic musician and sound designer, and lead designer for project drone. Tom is responsible for unifying the conceptual, experiential, visual and audio aspects of the project, driving the aesthetics and sound in the game. Tom’s work has covered film, animation, games, sound installations and music. He has toured globally as part of electronic music duo Warp Technique, and is a co-founder of Quartic Llama; independent games company. He was designer, sound designer, composer and artist on the award- winning game “other” made with Malath Abbas and in partnership with the National Theatre Scotland.

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system.

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)
  • Join HCAC on September 16th from 6 – 8pm for its Annual Meeting & Grant Awards reception
  • Attend the closing reception for Paint It! on September 30th from 6 – 9pm for a great opportunity to reconnect with local artists and arts organizations and make a contribution to Re-create.
HCAC will also invite local galleries to set up pop-up shops during the reception on September 30 to benefit the fund.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system.

The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Date: 14 August 2016, 3:04 pm
Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Flight Lines”
Date: 14 December 2015, 12:23 pm

Turbulence.org Commission: Flight Lines by Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer:

Flight Lines is a computer vision project that monitors the sky not just for customary birds and planes, but rapidly multiplying drones and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Emerging from an interest in the ecology of the Anthropocene, Flight Lines is an effort to document the skies as they are today, with the knowledge that they are rapidly evolving and have variable characteristics in different locations at different times.

Irons and Phiffer have created a network of cameras across New York City. Each camera location has its own particular ’sky signature’ that is revealed through algorithmic processing, which would otherwise remain invisible. As you watch, your computer renders the videos into a series of silhouetted frames that trace the arcs of objects that move through them; birds, trash, flying machines. The paths generated by this process are its “flight lines.”

Watch the sky, or leave your browser window open while you attend to other tasks. Either way, you will accumulate hours of processed footage that will provide Irons and Phiffer with material for a series of paintings and videos that respond to this aerial ecology.

Flight Lines is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Item: Turbulence.org Commission: “Killbox” by Joseph DeLappe, et al
Date: 22 September 2015, 8:59 am

Turbulence.org Commission: Killbox by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK) [To "play" the game download the application to your desktop, and make sure your speakers are on.]

Killbox is an online interactive game that critically explores the nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction of killing through virtualization.

Modern warfare technology disguises the lethal nature of weapons as they become surgical precision instruments producing ‘clean’ destruction within acceptable limits of “collateral damage.” – Jill Berke*

“Killbox” is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. Kill Box involves audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada).

The disintegration of the warrior’s personality is at a very advanced stage. Looking up, he sees the digital display (opto-electronic or holographic) of the windscreen collimator; looking down, the radar screen, the onboard computer, the radio and the video screen, which enables him to follow the terrain with its four or five simultaneous targets; and to monitor his self-navigating Sidewinder missiles fitted with a camera of infra-red guidance system. Paul Virilio **

Killbox is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).

Date: 14 August 2016, 3:04 pm
Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)

The Nude Figure will present a survey of contemporary responses to the nude to illuminate resonances between traditions of imagining the figure and the artist’s personal experience. The theme of mirroring is a metaphor for the persistence of the nude as a theme in art and our shared visual understandings of the body. Entries are being accepted in painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics, fiber, glass and mixed media.
Jurors Paul DuSold, instructor at the Woodmere Art Museum and Fleisher Art Memorial, and Scott Noel, professor at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, look to assemble a survey of contemporary responses to the nude to illuminate resonances between traditions of imagining the figure and the artist’s personal experience.

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire, has announced a new open ‘Call for Entry’.

An extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer “CREATING CONNECTIONS”, a commission and print replication project.  The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.  Applications are due Saturday, August 27, 2016

The goal of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security. The concept of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—may be an important point of departure for creating the commissioned work. This commission is open to submissions from women artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.
We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today.

The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, The CyberWire helps individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The Women in Cyber Security Reception will bring together women from across the region and all different points on the career spectrum. This event will be an opportunity to meet, greet and share a common goal—empowering women to succeed in the cyber security field. Leaders from industry, academia, and government can reconnect and strengthen existing relationships while building new ones. Those just starting out in their careers have the chance to meet the technical and business professionals who are shaping the future of cyber security.

This invitation-only event will be held at the Columbus Center overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Item: Help Ellicott City artists
Date: 8 August 2016, 5:00 am
On July 30, Ellicott City’s historic district was devastated by a flash flood. Many artists with studios and galleries in Ellicott City suffered substantial losses of artwork and studio space – severely impacting their ability to earn a living. To provide assistance, the Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is establishing Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund to aid these artists on their long road to recovery. The Arts Council will extend its current exhibit, Paint It! Ellicott City 2016, which showcases artwork created during the July 2016 plein air paint-out, through September 30, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work donated to the fund. Several Paint It! artists have already generously agreed to donate 100% of their sales to help the relief effort.
 
The Arts Council is also accepting individual donations and is actively seeking a funding partner to match all donations to Re-create. Eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency funding to help re-establish their capacity to live and work. Funding guidelines and applications will be available soon.
 
How can you help E.C. artists on the road to recovery?
  • Visit the Howard County Center for the Arts to see our Paint It! Ellicott City show and check out the artwork available for purchase
  • Donate to Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund on the Support the Arts page at hocoarts.org (please include Re-create: EC Artist Relief Fund in the purpose section)
  • Join HCAC on September 16th from 6 – 8pm for its Annual Meeting & Grant Awards reception
  • Attend the closing reception for Paint It! on September 30th from 6 – 9pm for a great opportunity to reconnect with local artists and arts organizations and make a contribution to Re-create.
HCAC will also invite local galleries to set up pop-up shops during the reception on September 30 to benefit the fund.
