Mark Titchner
The Age of Happiness - 2009, Curated by Artemis Potamianou

Review by Arelis Eleftherios

Image: Mark Titchner, Voices you cannot hear, 2004
Mark Titchner [England, 11-1-1973] on his work "The white light I"
[2007][steel moter, light fitting on steel plinth] introduces us a
strolling skyscraper. He points out the intensive rhythm of life on the
big cities of the Western Civilization and that societies are living
organisms like humans. In addition to this a lamp in the middle of the
skyscraper illuminates the medium stratums[or floors] and it is very weak
in the higher or in the lower parts.The artist emphasizes that knowledge
comes up only by moderation, following the ancient Greek gnomic: All
things in moderation (παν
άριστον) which brings harmony following
the Heraclites' [Ephesus, Ionia, Asia Minor - Modern Turkey, 535 BCE - 475
BCE] philosophy. Furthermore Titchner points out that knowledge [whose
light is the main representative] is far away from the lower and the
higher parts of society [the poor or the rich][...]

Semantic Disturbances
Andreas Maria Jacobs

Electronic Literature Collection Volume 2, 2010

"This set of single-screen networked pieces operate like photographs of
the very self-generation of the internet, exploding the image with
algorithmically determined deformations that quickly overwhelm the space
of the monitor, as the letters and image pour into the invisible spaces
beyond the frame and thus control of the user.

Enacting an anarchic deconstruction of the power of the text/image
complex, semiotic slippages are provoked and made visible via the
operations of simple control-or counter-control-algorithms.

These aren't images made for passive consumption but rather antidotes
against the totalizing functionality of the societal spectacle."

Review by Arelis Eleftherios

The work "Seeking me, you sat exhausted" has all the typical
characteristics of a dedicatory headstone. Christophe Chemin dedicates
this video to Camille Claudel (8-12-1864 19-10-1943) a sculpture and
sister of the famous author Paul Claudel (6-8-1868 23-2-1955) pointing out
the healing role of modern art.

"Maar ook wil ik dansen met Lucifera en de geur van haar haar ruiken en
verdrinken daarin en opgenomen worden in licht en nog meer licht totdat ik
blind niets anders meer kan dan opgenomen worden in nog meer licht en haar
haar, haar dijen, haar dans, en bedwelmd zijn, voor altijd bedwelmd zijn,
en dood zijn" [A.A. 2010]

Call for Submissions

Friction Research Issue #4, Spring 2011

"When the possibility of expressing social reform vanishes, time has come
to change our minds. [A.A. 2010]"
Reclaim the Mind is a transmedial collaborative initiative exploring empty
spots in the human mind by:

- occupying the area between 'reality' and 'truth',
- re-using forgotten (collective) memory-spaces,
- connecting mental processes with physical spaces,
- rewriting, tearing apart, scratching and stretching our lived
environment in an effort to liberate our ursurpated sensibilities.

Reclaim the Mind reclaims the idiomatic resources, abused by the Creative
Industries and jeopardized by a majority of National Governments, and will
intentionally break seperations between established cultural and political

Reclaim the Mind aims to protect the incomprehensible treasure of mankind,
