Shortlist for Share Prize 2014

Once again, more than 250 artists worldwide have sent in their proposals for SHARE FESTIVAL 2014/2015, with the theme of Autonomous.
The SHARE jury of Jasmina Tesanovic, Irini Papadimitriou, Bruce Sterling and  Luca Barbeni have selected six entries for “Autonomous,” which takes place the Temporary Museum from the 19th until the 29th march.

Simone Rebaudengo & Matthieu Cherubini (CH, IT), Ethical Things, 2015

LIA (AT), Filament Sculptures, 2014

Stefan Tiefengraber (AT), User Generated Server Destruction, 2013

Agustina Andreoletti and Alice Rzezonka (AR,DE), Reflective Conversion, 2014

Paidia Insitute (DE), Paidia Laboratory: feedback, 2011-2014 

Ralph Kistler (DE), Social Netwalks, 2012

Ethical Things is a household appliance — a fan — that has its own autonomous ethics and spiritual values, and has to decide whether or not it wants to function.
Filament Sculptures is an autonomous 3D printer.  Instead of making copies or prototypes, it concentrates on the sculptural aspects of computer-controlled plastic extrusions, and makes 3DPrint art for the sake of 3DPrint art.
User Generated Server Destruction is a commonplace Internet server.  However, whenever it gets any traffic from human users, it violently slams itself with a large hammer, eventually committing suicide.
Reflective Conversion is a colony of mechanical mirrors who communicate by flashing lights at one another.
The Paidia Laboratory: feedback is an autonomous set of hacked computer game consoles that require no human users because they are playing themselves.
Social Netwalks  is a video, in which everyday people strolling through a city are divided up as if they were a social network instead of a real town.
