Introducing the workshop “Magaluf Reset: Project, Gaming and Strategic Action”, for architects and graduates. Codirected with R. Paez i Blanch, It will take place in July 22-30th in the island of Palma de Mallorca. A week of ludic and academic high-voltage aimed at establish an open research field for the particular mass tourism of Magaluf. During the warm months the british-balearic corridor sends periodically outposts where the narcissistic and sexual self-affirmation takes place. New touristic rituals bring an exultant aesthetics of looting and provocation. Magaluf is certainly problematic, but in a time in which urbanism has turned into a monetized and propagable technology it explicits the possibility of new plays on the urban gameboard, a bastion for new and unprogrammed frictions within the social and political mainstream.

Gameboards, sci-fi politics, situation rooms and much more!

SCULPTURE: Rotary Signal Emitter

Rotary Signal Emitter – Side A “Belleville Springs / Overmodulation High”

Sculpture is an audiovisual performance duo from London – electronic music producer, Dan Hayhurst, and animator, Reuben Sutherland.

The Rotary Signal Emitter is an LP that can be played conventionally or as a self contained film. You just have to place the record on a turntable and direct a bright lamp at the record as it plays to film the record as it spins.

Sutherland ‘DJs’ with home-made zoetropic discs, intricate concentric rings of illustrated frames, projecting fragments of looping images at 33, 45 and 78 rpm – pre-Edisonian imaging technology combined with a digital video camera.

Hayhurst deploys prepared audio material (found tapes, lo-fi electronics, computer programming, and analogue noise) across 1⁄4” tape loops, hardware sampler, cassette walkman and CDJ deck.
