From the University of California, San Diego:
Statement Regarding Gun Geo Marker Mark 1 App Developed by UC San Diego Professor Brett Stalbaum
Like all great public research universities, UC San Diego is home to a diverse faculty with a wide range of interests and points of view. On occasion, the research or creative works developed by faculty may be quite controversial. This is especially true when a creative work takes on complex issues where the public has strong opinions. We understand and acknowledge that, at times, the public may not agree with an individual’s views or tactics. However, the university is built upon the principle of academic freedom for faculty members to direct their areas of creativity and inquiry. As a platform for innovative thought that may challenge the status quo, the university does not take positions on the political implications of its researchers’ work.University of California policies protect the academic freedom of our faculty within the confines of the law and the Faculty Code of Conduct. The University does not endorse or support the violation of any law or University policy, and we take seriously our role as a public trust. When issues arise, we conduct a prompt review of all allegations of violations of law. Each campus of the University provides training regarding responsibilities of our employees, and has established processes by which complaints regarding allegations of misuse or illegal activity are reviewed to ensure adherence to state and federal law.
Spontaneous Combustion Residency 2014
A 2-week residency in England encouraged artistic exploration between body-related practices and the digital.
Artist David Da Paz collaborated with four performance artists to produce a digital application for mobile devices.
Audiences can interact with the performances using their own phones. The artists were selected
through an open call, and offer free rehearsal space during the two weeks of the residency. This is a creative
opportunity for artists to engage with new technologies and for audiences to integrate their everyday experience of the digital in experiencing art.
The brazilian walking artist David da Paz is realizing a series of digital art works using the walkingtools platform (android and the java GUI).
David’s amazing works can be found here: http://cartografictions.blogspot.com.es/ .
David developed a project called CartografictioONs for the Residencia Artropocode / Summer of Labs 2013 – Interseccións artísticas entre corpo(s), tecnoloxía(s) e ecoloxía(s) in Spain.
A good article: in depth, balanced and thoughtful journalism.
