Trevor Paglen : sites unseen by John P Jacob( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trevor Paglen is an American artist, geographer, and author. "What I want from art," says Paglen, "is to help see the historical moment we live in." His photographs make visible things we're not meant to see; he regards this invisibility as emblematic of that moment. Looking toward the earth, sea, or sky as earlier artists have, Paglen captures the same horizon seen by Turner in the nineteenth century or by Ansel Adams in the twentieth. Only in Paglen's images, a drone or classified communications satellite is also visible. "For me," Paglen observes, "seeing the drone in the twenty-first century is a bit like Turner seeing the train in the nineteenth century." Turner was less interested in the technology than its effects on perception, by its ability to accelerate human motion. Paglen is interested in our evolving perception in space. Standing in the Western landscape where Adams worked, Paglen photographs the drone as it photographs him. His images suggest that our conceptions of space and visuality are undergoing radical change; the physical limits of vision are no longer a reliable measure of what is visible to (often mechanical) others.

"The mobile phone's no longer just a fancy version of a tin can with string you talk into, it's a portal to multiple social spaces that are constantly changing and updating.

In this lecture - presented by the University of New South Wales - entitled "Always With Me: how mobile and social media are changing us ", Crawford shares the preliminary findings from the largest study of mobile media use in Australia."--ABC website

#Qldfloods and @QPSMedia : crisis communication on Twitter in the 2011 South East Queensland Floods by Axel Bruns( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper, archived from the website of ARC Centre for Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation, Queensland University of Technology, investigates the important role social media, including Facebook and Twitter, played in crisis communication at the height of the 2011 South East Queensland floods crisis (10-16 January). This report examines the role of the short-messaging system Twitter in disseminating and sharing crisis information and updates from state and local authorities as well as everyday citizens. This report assesses the overall use of Twitter, and that of the most visible account user on #qldfloods, the Queensland Police Service Media Unit account (@QPSMedia) who played a leading role in disseminating timely and relevant information to the public, and in coordinating and guiding the wider discussion

Big Data and Due Process: Toward a Framework to Redress Predictive Privacy Harms by Kate Crawford( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The rise of “Big Data” analytics in the private sector poses new challenges for privacy advocates. Through its reliance on existing data and predictive analysis to create detailed individual profiles, Big Data has exploded the scope of personally identifiable information (“PII”). It has also effectively marginalized regulatory schema by evading current privacy protections with its novel methodology. Furthermore, poor execution of Big Data methodology may create additional harms by rendering inaccurate profiles that nonetheless impact an individual’s life and livelihood. To respond to Big Data’s evolving practices, this Article examines several existing privacy regimes and explains why these approaches inadequately address current Big Data challenges. This Article then proposes a new approach to mitigating predictive privacy harms—that of a right to procedural data due process. Although current privacy regimes offer limited nominal due process-like mechanisms, a more rigorous framework is needed to address their shortcomings. By examining due process’s role in the Anglo-American legal system and building on previous scholarship about due process for public administrative computer systems, this Article argues that individuals affected by Big Data should have similar rights to those in the legal system with respect to how their personal data is used in such adjudications. Using these principles, this Article analogizes a system of regulation that would provide such rights against private Big Data actors

[Hi God People] : [Peter Blamey and Jim Denley]( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Hi God People are a performance group who periodically assemble out of the indie music and art scenes in Melbourne's northern suburbs. Many of their shows take place in pre-historic settings and involve death, reproduction, smoke machines, cardboard and lots of strobe lights. Peter Blamey and Jim Denley have been playing together for several years now; Jim is a tireless pioneer of the saxophone and Peter uses a mixing board, where the sound he creates with it comes from the mixer itself. He sends the outputs of the mixer back into the inputs creating a perpetual feedback loop
Sub-vocal theme park : acid unravelled by B(if)tek (Musical group)( Recording )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[Robbie Avenaim, Dale Gorfinkel and Lucas Abela]( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Robbie Avenaim is a composer and percussionist who's explored many forms of music, such as punk, noise, free-rock, free-jazz, Hasidic, Latin and African. Robbie and Dale Gorfinkel have both developed radical approaches to playing the vibraphone, by utilising the motorised drive shaft usually responsible for tone control as a way of agitating objects placed between the bars of the instrument. Lucas Abela is one of the leaders of Australian "noise music". His early performances were crazed extensions of turntablism; instead of turntables he'd use motors turning metal discs at 2000 rpm, and instead of record needles he'd use skewers or knives. Incorporating everything from trampolines to sewing machines into his performances, in recent years he7F 19s been using sheets of glass that he blows through, screams through, bites and breaks
[Stasis Duo and Amanda Stewart]( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Features performances from the Stasis Duo - Matthew Earle and Adam Sussmann. Their work covers extreme territories from speaker-frying, subsonic devastation and harsh noise to imperceptibly still, almost silent work. They work with a variety of instruments but they are mostly recognised for their use of the 7F 18emptied7F 19 sampler, that is, samplers that have no sounds in them. The sounds that are produced are created by the fact that the outputs on the sampler are patched to the inputs creating a feedback loop. They are joined by sound poet Amanda Stewart, known for her often wild, virtuosic displays of vocal acrobatics and dense text-based pieces. In this performance, Amanda explores breath, air, whispers and sonic vocal gestures
Young people and sexting in Australia : Ethics, representation and the law by Kath Albury( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Thee Young People and Sexting in Australia report presents the findings of a qualitative study of young peopleâs understandings of, and responses to, current Australian laws, media and educational resources that address sexting. While there are many definitions of sexting, for the purposes of this report we are referring to the production and distribution of naked or semi-naked photographs via mobile phones and social media. The project involved a review of both international local and academic research as well as popular media addressing sexting, and a review of educational resources for young people. Three focus groups were conducted with young people aged 16 and 17 in 2012, and a working paper based on those findings was then distributed to adult stakeholders in the fields of law enforcement, youth and childrenâs legal support, education, criminology, media and communications, youth work, youth health care, counseling and youth health promotion. This report therefore draws on both the focus group discussions, and a workshop consultation with the adult stakeholder group. [Executive summary, ed]
