Ear to Ear: Collective Transmission

When: Jun 30, 2020 6:30-8:30 pm


Join Other Desert Radio founders Caroline Partamian and Ethan Primason to examine, explore, and converse about community, transmission, and distance. This workshop will dive into the history of transmission-based projects to glean how the medium is rife for community building and experimental communication. Using these examples as a guide, participants are invited to intentionally interact with their space to engage deeper with an invisible and anonymous audience who will be transported by their work. Date: This one-time workshop meets on Tuesday, June 30 from 6:30-8:30PM EST. Audience: Open to all. Materials: Participants will need a computer with internet access and some type of audio recording device, which could be a phone or a field recorder. Caroline Partamian is a sound and visual artist influenced by her training in dance. She works closely with the concept of abreaction —the extraction of dormant memory stored within a muscle, resurfaced through physical movement, of which an individual was previously unaware; these memories span the spectrum and can take many forms—traumatic, erotic, comforting, etc. By focusing on the process rather than anticipated result, her work encourages what can be revealed when one becomes conscious of their kinetic movement in the process of creation. She has shown work at Marfa Open, Wassaic Project, Otion Front, Flux Factory, Anthology Film Archives, Babycastles, Compound Yucca Valley, and more. Ethan Primason is a sound artist, recording engineer, and musician. His works and practices explore the multisensory context and placeness of audio. His works have been shown at Pioneer Works, Sargent’s Daughters, Marinaro Gallery, Zaha Hadid 520 W 28th street, Outpost Artist Resources, Wassaic Project, Clocktower Radio, Marfa Open, WGXC Wavefarm, and BoxoPROJECTS. Please note, this online workshop will begin promptly at the listed start time. In order to ensure the quality of instruction for all participants, late entry will not be permitted.

How To Make the Coolest Selfies in Your Friends Group

When: Jul 19, 2020 1:00-3:00 pm

Where: Zoom -

"In light of social distancing, we’re seeking the World Wide Web for connection, validation, and pleasure more than ever before. How can we begin to reclaim our cyberspaces as joyful spaces? How do we begin to cultivate freedom in a moment where our physical self is becoming more and more entangled with our electronic image—our data bodies, the architecture of surveillance? In a study conducted by Dr. Caputo of the University of Urbino, participants were asked to stare into a mirror in dim lighting for ten minutes. Results demonstrated that 66% of participants experienced huge deformations of their own face, 28% saw an unknown person, and 48% saw fantastical and monstrous beings. In this workshop, we will be creating our own “software mirrors” using JavaScript, the language of the web—re-introducing ourselves to our own faces and taking charge of how we look online. Then we'll take some mirror selfies. This workshop is created for beginners with some basic familiarity with programming, but will re-introduce the fundamentals in detail, as well as how to work with pixels and RGB colorspace, basic interactivity, Perlin noise and randomness. All examples and projects will be created with p5.js, a free, open-source, beginner-friendly JavaScript coding environment created for visual artists. Learn more about p5.js at " BIO: Olivia McKayla Ross (August 28, 2001–forever) is a Caribbean American video artist, programmer, and poet from Queens, New York City. Her work is inspired by the relationship between electronic video and vanity—by deep fantasy, Instagram filters, glamour magic, mirrors, and the fantasies and anxieties of video transmission: immersion, absorption, surveillance, and control. How are faith and trust distributed between users and programmer? How is faith monopolized, accumulated, recycled, exchanged, embodied, assigned, and weaponized between people, systems, ideals, and materials? Emboldened by her perspective as a “digital native,” she hopes her work will encourage her fellow teens to nurture a critical relationship with technology. She is a recent alum of the School for Poetic Computation and has taught at Black Girls Code, BUFU, and POWRPLNT. You can connect with her at cyber.doula on Instagram. Register:

Emotional Embodied Resilience

When: May 18, 2020 6:30-8:00 pm

Where: Zoom -

Use code "redhook" to reserve your free slot. In a techno-capitalist economy that thrives on the quantification of nature and computation of our innermost lives, we ask: What are the gaps between how machines read our emotions and how emotions actually feel in our bodies? In this workshop, we will collectively explore the emotional resilience of the body towards platforms that surveil, manipulate, and automate the human experience. To do so, we will delve into the emotional materiality of the body by using “the blob” metaphor as a lens and a tool to investigate and appreciate the complexities of human emotion. Feeling and sensing through a series of choreographed explorations and discussions, we will create and hold a space for blobby emotivity to emerge—an embodied experience where we embrace the inexplicable and the non-quantifiable, the slow and messy. This workshop will be led by former Tech Resident and Founder of The Centre for Emotional Materiality Surabhi Saraf and Centre for Emotional Material member Laura Hyunjhee Kim.
