The Timeline of Slovene Electronic-literature, by Jaka Železnikar

A bit to my surprise one of the academic services provided me with the following text: The Timeline of Slovene Electronic-literature written by myself. I don’t recall publishing this text anywhere, It was made as an internal document and only a part of the task and papers written during my MA studies. Well since the ghost is out of the bottle, I might as well share it also here, with hopes it might serve some purpose if the issues turn into the direction of e-literature.

Otvoritev Računalniškega muzeja

Računalniški muzej, zasnovan v Kiberpipi deluje že od leta 2004. Doslej so v muzeju pripravili prek 50 dogodkov in razstav, mednarodnih gostovanj in skupnih projektov s kulturnimi institucijami v Sloveniji. Leta 2012 so skupaj z muzejem novejše zgodovine postavili pregledno razstavo domačih računalnikov Goto 1982, ki si jo je ogledalo 15.000 ljudi.

18. junija 2022 po daljšem času “zaprtih vrat” odpirajo svoje nove prostore na Celovški cesti 111 v Ljubljani.

Vera Molnar, 98, Computer Art Pioneer, Presenting at the Venice Biennale for the First Time

Vera Molnár (born 1924) is a Hungarian media artist living and working in France. Molnar is widely considered to be a pioneer of computer art and generative art, and is also one of the first women to use computers in her art practice.

In the 1940s and 50s, she created non-representational paintings. By 1959 she was making combinatorial images; in 1968 she would use a computer to create her first algorithmic drawings.

In the 1960s she founded two groups in France concerned with the use of technology within the arts: the Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel and Art et Informatique.

She was selected as one of 213 artists for the 59th Venice Biennale in 2022.

Augmented Reality in 1968

The Sword of Damocles was the name for the mechanical tracking system and not the head-mounted display, and is widely considered to be the first augmented reality HMD system, although Morton Heilig had already created a similar apparatus (known as “Stereoscopic-Television Apparatus for Individual Use” or “Telesphere Mask”) earlier, patented in 1960.

The Sword of Damocles was created in 1968 by computer scientist Ivan Sutherland with the help of his students. More at Wikipedia.

Pogovor z avtorjem: Vuk Ćosić, Nacija – kultura

V okvirih projekta Trajnostna digitalna hramba slovenske novomedijske umetnosti in v sodelovanju z Laboratorijem za nove medije Moderne galerije, bo v torek, 11. 1. 2022 ob 15. uri potekal pogovor z avtorjem tudi danes zanimivega, a tehnično obsoletnega dela Nacija – kultura (2000).

Vuk Ćosić bo predstavil delo na rekonstrukciji in dokumentiranju projekta Nacija – kultura. Delo bo predstavljeno tudi v programu Moderne galerije v letu 2022.

Sledila bo razprava in pogovor, ki bo vezan na teme projekta Trajnostna digitalna hramba slovenske novomedijske umetnosti.

Vuk Ćosić je predlagal nekaj iztočnic za razmislek o projektu, kot pravi ima projekt Nacija-Kultura več ravni:

  • ohranjanje “born-digital” dediščine
  • vprašanje razstavljanja spletne umetnosti
  • netrivialno temo stika med književnostjo, duhom nacije in AI
  • družbeno angažirano komponento
