ELECTROMAGNETIC FOUNTAIN
Amanda's electromagnetic blog

 

The "motherboard" is a central element of the personal computer, the main circuitboard to which one connects memory, peripherals and other devices, which extend the capabilities of the computer. Motherboard (the art group) may be described as a collective of artists and 'techsperts' gathered around the core members Per Platou and Amanda Steggell, for various projects. The majority of their work has taken the form of installations and performative live art happenings, mediated and modulated by the intermediary influence of the net, and often integrate audience participation and interaction. Through their ambitious vehicles they explore the materiality and resistance of the net as a mediating instance.

Please make a regular habit of checking their site for upcoming events.

POTENT PROJECTS
[ full review - Norwegian PDF ]


If I was to be totally honest I have to acknowledge a touch of artist distain. When I see exhibitions, theatre performances and concerts it is always with a feeling that the artist stands in the way of the experience of the work. I therefore generally give little thought to who has made the artworks I see. However, in this exhibition the apparent absence of the artists seems almost intrusive. It is very rare to see exhibitions where 80 artists are represented, and as there is very little supplementary information beyond the list of works, the job of matching the map to the terrain, so to speak, quickly becomes irritating ......

... There are moments when being an art critic feels like a burden, and the act of describing and expressing opinions feels almost perverse in that it is hard to do so without violating the actual experience. Per Platou and Amanda Steggell have created a work that I am so intensely in love with that I am actually a bit embarrassed to talk about it. It is as though the work is custom-made for my private feelings and longings, however I can't put my finger on exactly what or how. At the same time, it seems to be the exhibition's most universally accessible work - because it is so instantaneously sensuous. Particularly the use of aroma is so effective that several hours later I could still sense it on me as an aftertouch of a lover's caress. To experience the work feels like being wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a cradle, and the memory of the experience is almost stronger then the experience itself. The installation has become a friend and it is the only artwork that I have ever attempted to hug. It feels sad to have to have to say goodbye, but friends come and go. The parting is endurable because there is hope that we may meet again and everything that has happened in the meantime will generate new things to talk about. It is through moments like these that the art circus proves itself worthwhile after all.

PASOLINI VALUE
[ full review - Norwegian & English versions ]

Who would have thought that we would be led down to into the cellars of Hausmania, the street-smart culture complex where spray cans glisten in the frozen night and no pushers no buyers hangs above you like a saloon sign, to experience an intellegent and rough-edged exploration of capitalism and sexuality. Certainly not me.

THE SEVEN SISTERS' UNKNOWN EIGTH SISTER
[ full article - Norwegian ]

Up till now we have only heard of the Seven Sisters. But during the summer an eight sister is scheduled to pop up - or more correctly, pop down!

The Oslo-based art group Motherboard will sink a sculpture called the 8th Sister at a depth of between 10-30 metres somewhere between Hioya and Kvalholmen in Træna.....

... An echosounder must be used to view The 8th Sister as a womanly figure, while her "living" form will probably deviate conciderably from a female form. Træna council officials have now given permission (for Motherboard) to carry out the project.
Roger Marthinsen, Rana Blad, 09.06.05

ART IN DEEP WATER
[ full article - Norwegian ]

Træna has been excluded from the project Scultural Landscape Nordland. But instead the community can play host to another, unique initiative: Two artists will place a female sculpture at least ten metres under the ocean southwest of Sanna.

The 8th Sister is ...... the worst example of the Emporer's new clothes!

SIX LOVE, SIX LOVE, SIX ONE
[ complete review - English & Norwegian ]

It's Thursday evening, and the liveart group Motherboard have formed their performance Game Set Match as a tennis match. Morgenbladet are present with a good feeling and a better title: Pling Pong. Pling, because Motherboard contains Per Platou: web-eccentric, electronica enthusiast and a legend within pop cultural pling pong. Pong, because of the tennis' natural affinity to the term Ping Pong, but also in its own right - as a reference to the first ever TV game made up of two lines and a dot in flight, developed by ATARI home systems in 1976, and spread around Norwegian sittingrooms in the early eighties. Motherboard has earlier worked with the Playstation figure Lara Croft. Does this tennis match mark a glance back in time? Is Game Set Match a tribute to contemporary society's electronic heritage?

An overdose of balls. The darkness grows darker and the senses sharper, the first player emerges from the left side. She is quickly contested by the ball machine: The Voice from above takes on the role of a godly scene setter, won't let go of her, sends her extremely hard serves until she leaves him. Next scene: a naked man is humiliated by a metalic female voice, we just manage to think Abu Ghrain, and then both players are in place, both on the left side of the court immaculately dressed for a tennis match against the superior force. They dual with racket and frying pan, the match takes on Kafkaesque proportions, and finally they are both executed by an overdose of tennis balls (well, something like that)....

Literary theatre. Apart from the ball machine there is little exploration of the scenic room here: Game Set Match is probably the most text-heavy traditional theatre production ever to be set up at Black Box. Totally unexpected from esthetic tricksters like Platou and Steggell, but quite alright really. As the national theatre houses cash in on lightweight musical comedy productions, what can be better than that the avantgarde takes on their monopolized expression - namely literary theatre.
Jon Refsdal Moe, Morgenbladet, 04.06.04


MOTHERBOARD: GAME SET MATCH

This work invites us to use all our senses.....
It is a challenge keep up with the tempo of the piece even for the most observant, but despite the high speed of the performance Hauk Heyerdahl nevertheless shines through as a young talent and provides us with a character to believe in.

ULTRA-HOT WIRED LIVE ART
Uganda Artist Association, Kampala | 11.02 - 13.03.04
[ project site ] [complete article - English | Norwegian ]

In February a group of artist will travel to Kampala with 15-20 powerful Macintosh computers in their baggage. The aim is to create African computer art. They will search for the answer to Brian Eno's question: «How can you africanize a computer?».
Bergens Tidende, 14.12.04

Motherboard came with 17 mackintosh computers, a complete MiDi system (sufficient to set up a modern music recording studio), video cameras and an overhead projector. The good news is that these gadgets have been donated to the UAA, based at Nommo gallery, at Nakasero. The association is now going to set up a centre that according to Platou will become the hub of computer art in Uganda, complete with a permanent Internet connection courtesy of Bergen Centre of Electronic Art in Norway. This will help UAA to join the global league of video teleconferencing.

WRITTEN IN STONE, A NET.ART ARCHAEOLOGY

Oslo Museum of Contemporary Art | 22.03 - 25.05.03
[ exhibition site ] [ all known reviews here ]

This might be the beginning of the end to the art world as we know it .... a revolutionary exhibtion.
Tommy Sørbø, NRK P2

Norway: it seems too far from the usual places to be sometimes. But now there is a nice reason to visit it. A week ago (March 23rd) a remarkable exhibition opened at the Oslo Museum of Contemporary Art. Artist Per Platou has curated an exhibition on net.art which is an odd mixture of artistic installation and almost archeological introduction to what was probably the most infamous period in network art: net.art.

This exhibition is almost all atmosphere and personal experience. Even if this is what makes it most vulnerable, this is also what makes it strong. I have seldom seen a net art exhibition that convinced me and I am beginning to think this is why: exhibiting net art is all about commitment, because it is simply not possible to avoid interpretation if you want to exhibit this art in a way that engages the audience in an exhibition space beyond the click of a mouse. What is interesting about this is that it brings the curator very close to a net art experience on line, the curator somehow reveals her or his individual approach and motivations, even more so then with creating an exhibition of existing material objects. The difference for the audience, between visiting such an exhibition and experiencing different projects and art web sites on line, is that the audience is at the mercy of (or rather: captured by) the approach of the curator.

In this case the curator has chosen to pay a very personal tribute to a period of net art he loves, showing the art works from this period from three different perspectives.....

DRAMATICAL NN
Kunstnett | Oslo | 11.06.02
[ dramatical nn ]

Amanda Steggell from Motherboard - www.liveart.org (NO) presented/performed this interpretation of the various N.N. mails and the interpretations of N.N. by others beautifully to the audience present at Art Norway's seminar on mailinglists, June 11th.
Grethe Melby, Kunstnett (posted on nettime), 26.06.02

This is a script for a Kunstnett Seminar on email lists by Amanda Steggell (Norway) that wittily plays out the drama that went on on several media art list servs in 2001 (such as Syndicate). Although maybe an inside joke for those who are familiar with these characters, it is also a very informative window into the personalities that inhabit these many lists.

[ lfsys ]

Pixelpunx aren't partykillers. They throw us a nice berlin based visual output and act playfully in front of camera. They look pixelated and lovely. These punx. With their wigs and their poses and their hardcore chatting in chatspace. These black and white ddr images, these cryptic pixelpunx sounds. It's east, it's weinnmeisterstrasse, the stop after alexander platte on U8, the blue line.

SEMENT

The Anual Art Exhibition | Bergen Art Museum, Norway | 23.09-5.11.02
[ sement ]

The jury have prioritised diversity and new types of artistic expression in their selection of works this year. It maybe precisely this that has inspired them to invite five net artists from Motherboard to create a net-specific installation to the [Norwegian] Anual Exhibition.

The result, Sement, is produced by Per Platou, Amanda Steggell, HC Gilje, Ellen Røed and Gisle Frøysland. It is staged in an office landscape on the second floor, and is clearly the most prominent contribution to net art at the Anual Exhibition.

The net does not provide complete stories such as we are used to with the news on TV and other media. You can of course find clear naratives on individual webpages, but whether I move from place to place, or if I look at net.art or other non-linear texts, I have to select elements myself in order to make my own story.

Sement mirrors this, containing many elements and a clear theatricality. A staging with objects, personas [dolls] and relationships which give me a feeling that there must lie a story here - a meaning. But I have to make the story myself. I have to decide which elements are important, and which relationships are necessary.

Randy Parker describes jodi.org like this: "Ultimately, Jodi is Code stripped of all functionality, Code for its aesthetic value, Code as abrasive language, Code as hallucination, Code as theater." The expression of Sement is very different from that of jodi.org. But both have to do with codes. To read that which lies behind. This is part of the essence of net.art.

SHAPED LIKE A TACO

nood CD | summer 00
[ nood ]

Nood, Ulf Knudsen (ex-Betonghysteria, Sister Rain, and more) and Per Platou (Chris Erichsens Orkester, and more) have released the follow-up album to their debut album "HettyLettyNetty" from '96. At that time they caused a stir when they used samples downloaded from the net in their songs and sound collages.Now they dare to trust the songs within themselves.

Generally speaking, Norwegian pop music lacks originality and experimentation. Apart from the ever growing cross-over techno-jazz scene, much of the music produced in Norway falls into the category of safe songs for apathetic radio listeners, predictable poprock songs or souless R&B. Nood is a relieving example of the fact that it is possible to make "tough" music without comprimising curiosity and naivity, and without necessarily falling under the category of jazz.

We are led into a world of grooves, hooks and evocations from many parts of the world. Elements from diverse cultures are seemingly brutally cut up and glued together, played and sung, crossing over and defying time and space, but without becoming either superficially stuck on, or allowing the illusion to be broken. On the contrary, the Noodists manage to maintain a fine red thread through the whole album. It's a pleasant journey, while at the same time you get new and surprising elements which slightly twist the compass dial away from where you thought you were heading. Because it is the groove, the godlike and constant beat which holds the whole album together, and don't we all love you for that beat-beat-beat-beatin'?

They have collaborated with Rhysea (net-jam artist), U4ia (database for spoken english linguistics and folklore'ist), Stine Grytøyr (Ulver) and Gine Ruud (soundscape decorator), not to mention the honourable, urine-drinking Baulers from West-Bengal, a multitude of samples, plus their own and their friends expertise. Go out and tear down the record shop shelves!
Trygve Mathiesen, Puls, 08.00 (translated from Norwegian)

More surprising than falling in love with an ample-bosomed woman with a large moustache (5 stars)
sherbertboy, uk, freetrax 08.11.00

Unpredictable and quirky techno-pop!
Aage Wolff, Avis1, 22.08.00 (translated from Norwegian)

NIGHTMARE FOR BOX SLAVES!
The album "Shaped Like A Taco" is like a giant jigsaw puzzle of sound and rythms; in other words, the worst nightmare of all those who need to place music into categorical boxes to be able to relate to it. ..... Nood's style is playful, creative, humorous, and suitably freaked out ......

Espen A. Hansen, VG, 02.08.00 (translated from Norwegian)

If it wasn't intended to be eaten, it wouldn't be shaped like a taco.

MIRAGE

Gallery F15 | Moss, Norway | 05.20-07.08.00
[ mirage ]

When you enter the gallery space and see "Mirage", you will probably experience it as meaningless. You are correct. "Mirage" is an interactive work. Interactive in the sense that it is first when you intervene with the installation that the meaninig becomes apparent. A good number of interactive works continue to appear meaningless because the way in which one shall interact is too complicated or cumbersome for a public to use it. With Mirage, the interaction method is simple - the only thing you have to do is to move about in the room, something a gallery public is used to doing. Generally speaking, experience is the focal point of art. This applies to both artists and public.

In "Mirage" the consequence of interaction over experience are illustrated very effectively. The meaning of the installation becomes clearer through the possibility to act in relationship to it, influence it, and therefore aquire more a complex experience of it.

Rather than to remember for always, or forget momentarily as computers, broadly speaking, tend to do, "Mirage" has a partly analogue and partly digital form of memory which lies in an organic process. This process is not confined to a single machine. It is the result of the complete installation: the projection, the camera, the gallery room and the Internet are equally important elements in a process which, as far as i can see, stretches from Moss to Bergen, and back

"Mirage" has (also) a parallel in the film "Terminator". In this science fiction story artificial life evolves behind the killer robots in a development of Reagan's Star Wars project. In a global net of weapon satelites, machine self-knowledge evolves. This occurs as a result of the relationship between the machines, rather than the characteristics of a single machine. Artificial life evolves coincindentally in an extensive, self-regulating technological environment.
Atle Barcley, Kunstnett Norge, 06.00 (translated from Norwegian)

MIRAGE | "TREFF" | Sternersen Collection | Bergen Art Museum, Norway | 19.01-5.03.01

Bright pink program: TREFF! The Stenersen Collection is exhibiting contemporary art this month. The premises are lighter, more open and in tune with the world after the renovations a couple of years ago. They've got a website as well, but they've forgotten to update it, and it's not pink like the catalogue.

It seems it's impossible to talk about contemporary art these days without naming net.art and technology. So both Gisle Fr&oslash;ysland and Motherboard (Per Platou og Amanda Steggell) are represented at the exhibition; they must be among Norway's most profiled net artists by now. Though net artists mightn't be the best description of them. TREFF is showing technology-art, perhaps or cyberart. Don't worry, I'll stay out of the genre discussion for now, that kind of thing only leads to torment and boredom: a prison of definition.

Motherboard's piece Mirage met me, no, engulfed me as I came up the stairs and entered the exhibition. A large screen on the one wall, and a projector on the other: not exactly unexpected. The image on the screen shows screens within screens, just as when you turn two mirrors towards each other and stand between them. The screen images were diffuse: greenish, unsharp, uncertain. A large round clock with a mouse-cursor projected onto it was mounted on the screen: the only solid indication to let me feel certain that this was a mirroring and a repetition, and not just a porridge. Wise from experience, I went over to look for a webcam (I've been to a net.art exhibition before) - and, sure enough, a video camera stood right by the side of the projector. Smile to the camera! Jump in front of the camera! Dance! Spin! Clap! And turn around and wait - one minute, maybe two, then you see yourself on the screen. You see yourself dancing with yourself, you hear the sound of jumping at the same time as you see your own face cover the whole screen, staring at you. Two old men came in and looked sceptically at the whole scene. They had no idea why I smiled in my dance with the screen. They moved quickly on. ...the catalogue could have stated that Mirage was a commentary on the surveillance society: it watches over us. Our fascination with watching others, and being watched ourselves. I think we enjoy them both.

When I came home to my machine and net connection and searched for more about what I had seen, I discovered that the screen images that are generated by Mirage are being streamed out on the net, you can see them now, if you have RealPlayer. I wish I'd known this when I was at the exhibition, then I would have danced with even more vigour, danced with the net, with an imaginary other.

Here I think the museum has failed. It's great to show netart or cyberart or technoart or whatever it is, but it's just not good enough to print a bright pink catalogue and think it's giving adequate information to the public. It's not good enough to write in the catalogue that "the art lives its own life on the net" while neglecting to communicate what exactly the game is about. Why on earth can't the catalogue be published on the net, at least parts of it, and some links!

The Sternersen Collection and Bergen Art Museum's websites haven't even been updated since last year - there isn't any information about this exhibition anywhere on the web. Contemporary art?

I would have liked to have seen a net-connected computer on which to get my fingers working by the side of installations such as Mirage. I would see that they were on the net as well as being in the museum. I want to know that I can maybe communicate with the world outside.
Jill Walker, weblog, 23.01.01 (translated from Norwegian)

The first thing that meets us as we enter the art museum is ourselves, in an unending passage through time and space, through the art installation by the artist group Motherboard (Amanda Steggell and Per Platou). The video image on the wall is a delayed picture of the observer's own movements. In principle, the image is sent around the world via the Internet and comes back again, but in a somewhat smaller format, further "within" the space of the image. And so it goes on. New movements arrive. The present and the past melt together. An interactive optical experience which you can either share with yourself (you can literally arrange a meeting with your past "self" within the image) or other observers as they pass by the wall.

SWITCH BITCH: RE. SAMPLING THE CYBERFEMME

Black Box Theater | Oslo | 12.98
[ switch bitch ]

CYBERGIRLS TAKE THE STAGE
Computer game heroine Lara Croft, The Media Grrl and Camel Grrl - three representatives for the new feminism - cyberfeminism - exit cyberspace and enter the stage in Switch Bitch. While cyberfeminism's mothers of the seventies had clear political aims and faught for women's rights, cyberfeminists do not have such intitial aims. They simply ARE - with natural self-confidence and strength. They do not fight for their rights. They take their rights for granted.

Per Platou and Amanda Steggell have worked with this performance for over a year. He is a data freak with a background in media theory, criminology, history of philosophy and film. She has studied dance and choreography in London and Oslo. Both are engaged in new communications mediums such as the the internet.

They have ribbed down the Black Box Theatre in Oslo to it's bare bones. On each of the four walls hang large screens. In tracks around the walls the dancers perform. In the middle of the floor the audience sit on rotating office chairs so that they can choose their own screen, picture and view point. If they choose to view only one screen, they get only one fragment of the reality that surrounds them. If they swivel around they gather many fragments. But what ever the choice, we're talking about fragmentation here. Switch Bitch is a performance where the difference between the real and the virtual is wiped out.
Astrid Sletbakk, VG 12.12.98. (translated from Norwegian)



DIGITAL MOSQUE

6CYBERCONF. | The Artists House| Oslo | 06.97
[ digital mosque ]

I have just come from the dress rehearsal of the Motherboard. Here is an example of young artists using the net in an original way. As I entered the performance space I was informed that there were separate areas for the male and female audience. I asked if I could choose where I sat, and they said yes! It was wonderful.
Cybergoddess Sandy Stone, speaking at the opening of 6cyberconf, Oslo, 06.97

The cyber-Islam performance of the young norwegian group, Motherboard, received very good response. It is in fact a shame that these truly netsmart young artists from Norway were not represented to a greater extent at the conference [beyond their performance and installation] as their work shows that they are not only competentpractitioners, but also have a strong conceptual and culturally-critical base which they apply to their work.
Kathy Rae Huffman, Telepolis/Poptarts, 06.97

Motherboard/lawhat al-umm tries to unite two seemingly opposite phenomenons: westernpostmodernism and arabic Islam. The resulting "digital mosque" makes a very good attempt at lifting the contrasts and paradoxes of globalisation to a high level.
Oscar Hemer, Sydsvenska Dagbladet, O7.97 (translated from Swedish)

The choreographic work [is] influenced by techno-house culture in creating performances in a more porous environment, in so-called ambient settings - at rave parties, in bars or art galleries. The work also features a dramaturgy which is more like a machine gun than an exquisite chess game. This does not mean, however, that [her] etymology is street dance; rather the opposite: she has seized chances to confront new audiences, spaces and themes.

Amanda Steggell's work has to a large degree functioned as a close-up of how european hegemony comprehends other cultures and its gender discourse in relation to technonology. Here the audience has to fill up a landscape where Darth Vader, middle-east versions of Whitney Houston's sentimental soul music collected on the internet, and harsh political statements create a social context to which the spectator is generously invited.

Amanda Steggell works with cliché both in relation to dance and to appearance; her starting point is the catwalk rather than Martha Graham or Anne Theresa de Keersmaeker, and the motivation has this "fellow traveller" quality which makes techno-house culture interesting: a kind of revolutionary attitude with no connection whatsoever to traditional message or political subtext but running on generosity, nakedness and a ballistic, down-to earth pulse.
Mårten Spångberg, Ballet International/Tanz Aktuell, 12.97



M@GGIE'S LOVE BYTES

Electra Exhibition | Hennie Onstad Art Centre | Oslo | 08-09.03.96
[ m@ggie's love bytes ]

Sex role perspectives enter and are twisted as the masculine gaze becomes reversed, and sent out on the net in a multi-media show from several global locations. The techno- based soundscape and the pixelating pictures give the whole seance a primal feeling. Repetative patterns invoke stone-age impressions. A straight performance, but with a prescribed dose of human intervention striking direcly into the heart of the 90s. Here, we are very much at the genesis of the development from the digital pre-historic twilight, moving steadily into the collective drama of the twentyfirst century.
Eirik Befring. Journalist, Oslo, 96 (translated from Norwegian)

Your presentation was fresh, invigorating , original, innovative and a great source of inspiration to all.
Scott deLaHunta. Performance Research Agency, Amsterdam, 96

The premiere of M@ggie's Love Bytes was, mildly put, a chaotic and exciting affair where the Internet's enormous universe became the arena for a dance performance like no other you have seen before [...]

Talk about collaboration! Live, before several hundred people. And a few million more, maybe?
Espen Andersen. Journalist, Oslo, 96 (translated from Norwegian)

The Norwegain dance and multimedia performer Amanda Steggell and her collaborators provide a close-to-home example of how a performance work may be viewed online; in 'Maggie's Love Bites' the online mediation is part of the message.

ARTICLE: EXTENDING THE BODY - EXTENDING THE SPACE FOR DANCE
[ article ]


REVIEW: Amanda Steggell argues that dance has too long been left out of investigations with technology and that there is much that dance has to offer these new cyber worlds. Crucial to her account is a dancer's knowledge of 'movement, transformation, time and space'. Her very practical article addresses specific areas where dance and technology can interact on a practitioner's budget: the Internet, the Life Forms software, Animation (Swivel), Labanwriter, Improvisation Technologies, Sound, Video Editing, Photographic Material from Video, Interactive Performance and/or Installation. Written in 1995/96 the article already shows its age in its discussion of the Internet and the limited reference to video and digital video technology.
