  DATADADA MANIFESTO #1
that's my data there
but that's not your affair
data is GAFA
datum is Kaboom
my data is the goose that lays the golden eggs
Lucky Data that can't be sold
Daisy Flowers-a-Gogo
when data manifests
it makes Dada
hue and dia!
when data loses its meaning
it changes direction
I repeat
data is GAFA
datum is Kaboom
data is like an angel
Unisex and pure spirit
that's data
that's data
let it be said! !

 

 

Written on Friday the 13th of June 2014 by the artists Albertine Meunier and Julien Levesque, the DataDaDa* Manifesto expresses their opposition to Data being progressively considered as mere digital bits of information.
Albertine Meunier and Julien Levesque wish to wrap, powder, decorate, style and envelop Data with the influence of the Dada art movement.
One century later, a new art movement is created: DataDada.

(*) DataDada hereby refers to any new artwork that incorporates both (digital) data and a touch of dadaism.

le cri du dadaThe Mentalista Guinguette

during Futur en Seine, Square Emile Chautemps - Paris - June 9, 10 et 11 2016

by Albertine Meunier, Julien Levesque, Bastien Didier, Sylvie Tissot and Thu Trinh Bouvier

By the sheer force of thought... you will participate in an unforgettable appetizer!
Once you put on the OpenBCI headset that reads the electronic signals from your brain, your every desire for peanuts, sausages or chips will be magically granted by way of your brainwaves. Directly linked to your brain, a printer will write out your choices from our menu. Then, wonder of wonders of the modern world, you will levitate sausage by sheer force of thought.
Be prepared for dizzying duels, as up to 4 people can participate at the same time.

4 keywords: dada, data, chips, sausage.

at Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich - 6 March, 2016 at 11 a.m

by Albertine Meunier, Julien Levesque, Bastien Didier and the public in Cabaret Voltaire

To play with OK Google and his program « what sound does the *animal* make? ».
The public can win one goodie (depending on the difficulty of imitation : embroidered baseball cap, shorts cut DataDada logo laser engraved, under-boc) by asking to Google "what sound does the *animal* make?" then imitate the sound.

with the following animals' sounds :
> very hard imitation : raccoon, elephant, humpback whale, boreal whale, turkey, zebra
> hard imitation : owl, tiger, horse, cock, momentum, duck
> easy imitation : dog , owl, cow, sheep , pig , monkey, cat

Happening DataDada #Badaboum

par Albertine Meunier, Julien Levesque et Bastien Didier


Ten useless machines inutiles Badaboum@gogo and one SteppyPenguin interact in real time with the reading of the manifest.
Badaboum@gogo is a connected machine that holds a mini explosive, such as a street festival firecracker, which is triggered by a piece of data captured online.
SteppyPenguin
is a DataDada installation consisting of a circuit of little penguins that move up and down to the beat of infernal musical data.
This installation lets you race different pieces of data.

That’s My Data

An artistic performance by Albertine Meunier and Julien Levesque
along with Sylvie Tissot and Bastien Didier . 2014


That's my data there is a DataDada* artistic performance where you may just recognize yourself!
A blurrer who knows how to blur (you know who you are) should know how to blur with no hands.
Slightly blurred data should still talk about the upper crust
An Internet search with Googoo isn't much
But after 8 years of searches stored on a daily grind
A few words spit fire!
Even if we know to be calm in the morning

When Data goes, everything goes!
So .... KABOOMMMMMM

(*) DataDada hereby refers to any new artwork that incorporates both (digital) data and a touch of dadaism.

Useless Data Inside

A useless DataDada object . 2014

Useless Data Inside is a connected "useless box”. The box is opened by a wooden thumb, which is controlled by data (a keyword) and closes automatically.
Useless Data Inside is thus the apogee of futility, even more useless than a simple Useless box.
