Hi Sarah,

Definitely, not an aficionado, despite following the threads.
There is something déjà-vu, or recursive remixing.
Minecraftization plus Terminator retinal imaging plus Tokyo street style plus [enter your preferred digital concretized object]
An emphasis on noise and not on contingency and on signal (information is more complex than glitches)
For me, this is state of the art: http://bldgblog.blogspot.com.br/2012/04/hydro-electro-musical-machinery.html 
...and have nothing to do with #newaesthetic
Maybe I'm missing something.

Hi CRUMBsters

I would welcome opinions on this question of 'the new aesthetic' from those on here who know more about it than I do.
Was anyone on the list at the South by Southwest panel a month ago now?

I am intrigued by Bruce Sterling's article
http://www.wired.com/beyond_the_beyond/2012/04/an-essay-on-the-new-aesthetic/#comments

It is reminiscent of some of the things which he and others discussed at the conference 'me you and everyone we know is a curator' organised by the Design Museum in the Netherlands. http://www.motimuseum.nl/en/events/calendar/symposium-me-you-and-everyone-we-know-is-a-curator/455
No one spoke of tumblers at the time, but perhaps we should have.

I particularly like Sterling's quote that,
"You can have all the machinic imagery out of CERN that you want, but the question is: what does it mean, how does it feel, what you do with it, how can you create? Is is beautiful, ugly, worthy, worthless, how is that good or bad, how does it change us?"


as I think these are the questions that curators try to answer with their curatorial projects, beyond their tasks of collecting and taxonomizing.

I recognise that discussion on 'the new aesthetic' also raises some interesting questions about how the 'new media art' world and the 'interaction design world' get along, as it would seem they are further apart than we first thought. Perhaps the exhibitions of MoMA could make an interesting case study here in that regard.

Friday afternoon thoughts,
Sarah
