Time ‎‏-‏‎ space compression in cyberspace art
Avi Rosen

The term “time ‎‏-‏‎ space compression” was coined by David Harvey [1] in his book, ‎‎“The Condition of Postmodernity” (1989). It refers to speed-up in the pace of life, ‎while abolishing traditional spatial barriers. ‎
The industrial revolution introduced the railroad and the telegraph line, paving the ‎way for future changes in communications. It brought about the perceptual changes ‎needed in early twentieth-century culture for the rise of the new media that captured ‎communications: photography, cinema, radio and the telephone. The new "high-speed" ‎technologies were the origins of the modern “annihilation of space and time” upon ‎which nineteenth and twentieth-century perceptions of the real world depend. The ‎train and railway system caused distortion in the traditional perspective and sight. This ‎foreshortening of time and space, started by the train’s speed, caused display in ‎immediate succession of panoramas and objects that in their original spatiality ‎belonged to separate realms.‎
The accelerated viewer was able to perceive the discrete, as it rolls past the coach ‎window indiscriminately; it was the beginning of the synthetic glance philosophy. ‎J.M.W. Turner was one of the first artists implementing the time-space compression ‎aspects. In ”Rain, Steam, and Speed The Great Western Railway” (1844) Oil painting, ‎he confronted a "slow" ploughman in the field, with a high speed locomotive engine ‎diagonally crossing while causing a whirlpool to the pastoral landscape. ‎

J.M.W. Turner ”Rain, Steam, and Speed The Great Western Railway” (1844)‎
From: Wikimedia Commons ‎http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Rain_Steam_and_Speed_the_Great_Western_Railway.jpg‎

The overall impression is of compression and distortion caused by the Doppler ‎Effect, as perceived by the artist positioned relative to the speeding locomotive, or on ‎a ship's mast at stormy sea, as Turner used to do for close experience of speed and ‎nature forces. This phenomenon of nonlinear time and space sensation, together with ‎industrial mass reproduction is a basis to the photographic and filmic vision and notion ‎of montage, as well to the non linear geometry implemented by Impressionists like ‎Édouard Manet in "Luncheon on the Grass" (1863). The male figures are dressed in ‎Charles Baudelaire’s flâneur fashion. The background woman who wades in a stream ‎is too large in comparison with the figures in the foreground; she seems to float. The ‎overall impression is lack of depth, reinforced by the use of broad "photographic" light ‎eliminating “natural“ shadows. ‎
The mobile accelerated eye and consciousness that swiftly jumps from point to point ‎will tend to focus on random details or to accumulate empathetic impressions of ‎tactile sensations. Similar nonlinear multifocal techniques were implemented by ‎Cubists such as Picasso, and Futurists such as Giacomo Balla who created a visual ‎analysis of objects made simultaneously from different spatiotemporal points of view. ‎The artist's acceleration and omnipresence transformed the process of artistic creation ‎to an almost religious significance because it involves restructuring of novel time and ‎space, a penetration into reality itself.‎ The Supermatist Kazimir Malevich ‎placed his “Black Square” (1923) canvas in the traditional position of a holy icon in ‎Russian homes. The black square symbolized the death of traditional art and nature, ‎deriving from Einstein's new relativity theory, speed of transportation and means of ‎communication. The implementation of mass production ready-mades like wallpaper ‎or newspaper cuttings into art compositions, potentially enabled a wide consumption ‎and presence of fine art. ‎

Kazimir Malevich, “Black Square” (1923). From: Wikimedia Commons
Artistic omnipresence caused by the compression of time- space leads to dramatic ‎change in artistic conventions such as Walter Benjamin’s “aura”. Mass production of ‎objects, instant spread and accessibility to all, made every myth instantly realizable. ‎The telephone, photography, movies and even traditional painting inspired by the new ‎technology cluster the most disparate data and images into one compressed new ‎reality of annihilated in-between spaces, and finds its highest expression at the viewer- ‎accelerated consciousness. When time-space is no longer experienced in Euclidian ‎manner, the gap between original and reproduction vanishes, as everything rolls past ‎the train’s coach window randomly. At the turn of the twentieth century Paul Valery ‎predicted: ‎
‎"Just as water, gas, and electricity are brought into our houses from ‎far off to satisfy our need in response to a minimal effort, so we shall be ‎supplied with visual or auditory images, which will appear and disappear ‎at a simple movement of the hand, hardly more than a sign." [2]. ‎

This compression effect was intensified during the twentieth century by the ‎electronic media technology. Marshall McLuhan described in “Understanding ‎Media” (1964) the global compression by communication reality to shape a “global ‎village”:‎
‎"After three thousand years of explosion, by means of fragmentary ‎and mechanical technologies, the Western world is imploding. During the ‎mechanical ages we had extended our bodies in space. Today, after more ‎than a century of electric technology, we have extended our central ‎nervous system itself in a global embrace, abolishing both space and time ‎as far as our planet is concerned. Rapidly, we approach the final phase of ‎the extensions of man - the technological simulation of consciousness, ‎when the creative process of knowing will be collectively and corporately ‎extended to the whole of human society, much as we have already ‎extended our senses and our nerves by the various media." (p. 19-20). ‎

Pop Culture and Pop Art are reflections of the global spatiotemporal compression. ‎Andy Warhol addressed in his art typical mass-produced commodities: soups, bottles ‎of Coca Cola, and shoes together with icons of common consciousness that flood the ‎media channels such as : the electric chair, Marilyn Monroe, Golda Meir, dollar bills, ‎and more. Madonna’s, Jeff Koons’s and Warhol's lifestyle and art, promoted them as ‎products of the global media and as celebrities. Art became an intangible object of ‎information and symbols consumed globally by “one-dimensional” subjects of “one-‎dimensional” global culture. The global culture consumption act is performed at ‎commercial centers such as malls, amusement parks and air terminals linked to the ‎global network of production, data and knowledge. The global net lifestyle is ‎imperative to grow new organs, to expand the human sensorium and body to some ‎new, as yet unimaginable, and perhaps ultimately impossible, dimensions (Jameson). ‎The reflections of the traditional three-dimensional global space are converted to ‎electronic digital information, displayed in real time on flat television and computer ‎screens at home, control rooms, and huge outdoor electronic displays, in the style of ‎New York’s Times Square, or Piccadilly Circus in London. Our vision, accelerated to ‎the finite speed of light, guided by our consciousness, controls the happenings of the ‎real world via electronic equipment, through making an instant “short circuit” between ‎action and reaction. The three-dimensional linear physical world, experienced by the ‎railway passenger, became an infinitely thin world of non-Euclidian electronic ‎information, examined by infinitely attenuated TV viewer linked to TV networks of ‎‎“digital highway”. Recent physical theories assert that the three-dimensional universe ‎is nothing but a membrane in multidimensional space. The flat TV and computer ‎displays, together with our retina and brain, are tiny segments of this torus-like cosmic ‎topology.‎
Nam June Paik made the video “Buddha” (1976-78), that is a sculpture of Buddha ‎sitting in a posture of meditation opposite a closed-circuit television image of him. The ‎video creates endless body reflections by means of speed-of-light technology, and ‎unites the TV image with the physical body. In his work “Buddha Reincarnated” ‎‎(1994), Paik upgraded the earlier work with Buddha meditating opposite a computer ‎screen. ‎

Nam June Paik, “Buddha Reincarnated” (1994).‎
From: http://thebuddhistblog.blogspot.com/2007_09_01_archive.html
The meditation does not take place through a direct observation but through the ‎electronic interface of a telephone, computer and modem. Buddha's body is ‎intertwined with electronic components that symbolize his incarnation to a cyborg that ‎catches his compressed surroundings by means of his super-positioned electronic ‎senses. The physical world and our bodies have undergone transformation and ‎compression into data distributed in cyberspace. The span of human arms and ‎consciousness is greatly expanded by means of electromagnetic waves of limitless ‎transmission range. In 1900 Karl Schwarzschild described an infinite space that can ‎be partitioned into cubes each containing an exact identical copy of our universe, ‎containing peculiar connection properties so that if we leave any one cube through a ‎side, then we immediately reenter it through the opposite side. This is actually the ‎experience while watching a TV program or playing video or computer games. ‎
The cyberspace surfer immersed in a Virtual Reality (VR) data sphere is equipped ‎with VR headset including display, earphones, microphone, data suit and data gloves ‎that connect him via computer to net hubs. His sensation is similar to the Scanning ‎Electron Microscope operator who alters the tested matter by his sight and cognition. ‎The surfer navigates within the electronic hyper-data that change while surfing. The ‎surfer becomes an artist creating worlds and events, thanks to the responsive data ‎sphere. The net surfer is anonymous, veiled by computer screen and headset hiding his ‎identity, ethnic origin, age, and other characteristics that are no longer significant in ‎cyberspace. His mind and senses are wholly isolated from the material world by means ‎of electronic equipment; the physical environment has lost its past meaning. He ‎remains alone; the other subjects, which accompanied him in the real world, become ‎avatars. There is nobody besides himself; everything is data. ‎
Jean Baudrillad argued that once one has passed beyond this point of detachment ‎from the real, the process becomes irreversible [3]. We will no longer be able to find ‎the objects and events that existed before the cyber immersion. We will not be able to ‎find the history that had been before cyberspace. The original essence of art, the ‎original concept of history have disappeared, all now is part of a real-time holistic data ‎sphere inseparable from its models of perfection and simulation. The cyberspace ‎compressed the time and space to a short circuit hyper-reality. ‎
Cyberspace is more real than everyday life; computer games are more fascinating and ‎alluring than the daily activities of school, work, sports or politics, and hyper-real ‎theme parks like Disney World and VR environments are more attractive than actual ‎geographical sites. The hyper-real symbolizes the death of the real, and the rebirth of ‎holistic reality resurrected within a system of digital data. History, sociology, ‎philosophy and art will never again be as before this point. We will no longer be able ‎to know, ever, what art had been before it compressed itself in cyberspace. We will ‎never again know what history had been before its aggregation in ultimate "MemEx", ‎the technical perfection of real-time holistic data memory. ‎
The permanent interconnection between both virtual and empiric worlds introduces a ‎new way of being and new ontological philosophy. Karl Popper's theory of the three ‎worlds is dramatically altered. Traditionally the classic world 3 of hypotheses can ‎never influence directly the empirical world 1 of physical "objects" and vice versa. To ‎achieve this, the mediation of subjective reality, human thoughts, feelings etc. of ‎world 2 is necessary. Cyberspace alters that fact. For example, a surfer may use an on-‎line internet application that controls and displays a mutation of DNA material or ‎integrated circuits embedded in biological cells. A theory of the function of these ‎circuits finds the way to world 3. Sensors (world 1) transmit feedback data from the ‎electro-biological cells. While the cyberspace is functioning, there is a real-time direct ‎feedback of world 1, world 3 and world 2 (the surfer). The electro-biological cells are ‎now part of surfer's extended body and his nervous system. Within interconnected ‎cyberspace, world 3 directly affects world 1, and world 2. Popper's original discrete, ‎linear relation of world 1, 2 and 3 becomes holistic real-time hyper-sphere. This ‎ontological shift affects artistic quantities and qualities which originally defined the ‎artistic object. Art work (world 1) can be controlled and altered by gadgets and real-‎time predictive software (world 3) causing art consumers to decide and act in the ‎creative scene (world 2). These acts create a closed loop 'duree' of art, interconnecting ‎the three worlds. The cyberspace can be comprehended as a container of Platonic ‎ideas that symbolizes the Platonic triangles and tables that emerge from mathematical ‎algorithms. The data can be manipulated, altered and copied by the demiurge (the ‎surfer).‎
Eduardo Kac's installation "Teleporting an Unknown State" (1994-2003) creates an ‎experience of the cyberspace as a holistic life-supporting system. In a dark room, a ‎pedestal with earth serves as a nursery for a single plant seed. Through a video ‎projector suspended above and facing the pedestal, remote surfers transmit light via ‎the Internet to enable the seed to photosynthesize and grow in the dark environment. ‎Another piece by Kac "Genesis" (1998/99), is a transgenic art installation that explores ‎the network relationship between technology, society, ethics, biology and myths. An ‎‎"artist's synthetic gene" was fabricated. ‎

Eduardo Kac, "Genesis" (1998/99).‎
From: http://www.ekac.org/geninfo2.html
The gene contained a Morse- encoded verse from the biblical Book of Genesis. The ‎verse reads: "Let man have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the ‎air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth." This verse implies ‎humanity's domination over nature. Morse code represents the dawn of the ‎information age - the genesis of global time - space compression. The Genesis gene ‎was incorporated into bacteria, which were shown in the gallery. Web surfers could ‎control ultraviolet illumination in the gallery, causing biological mutations in the ‎bacteria containing the Genesis verse. After successive manipulations, the DNA was ‎decoded into Morse code, and into mutated verse in English. This art piece suggests a ‎new holistic interactive data sphere where the ability to change the verse is a reciprocal ‎symbolic gesture. ‎
The cyberspace signals Roland Barthes' "death of the author", the disappearance of ‎God and his hypostases—reason, science and law, while witnessing a fuzzy logic ‎determination in holistic, time-space compressed cyberspace. Meaning and ‎knowledge are not constant inherited values; rather, they gain new 'duree' of meaning ‎while we are immersed in real-time in the data hyper-sphere.‎
The Cyberspace data sphere is an extended dimension (hyperbolic) of the global ‎geography and the physical body, experienced by the surfer, cyber-flâneur. The ‎computer is a suitable metaphoric vehicle for consuming electronically compressed ‎cyber time-space. The cyber-flâneur passes through compressed data space-time ‎populated with avatars and virtual objects. As Charles Baudelaire’s nineteenth century ‎flâneur was a product of industrialization and modernity, a spectator of modern life in ‎the rising urban sprawl, he is an upgraded product of New Media; the cyber- flâneur, ‎an avatar - spectator of virtual data structures. He is an entity whose aim is to ‎disappear in the time space of the digital city - a viewer who is everywhere and ‎nowhere (superposition state) in possession of his anonymity. He is the one who ‎experiences the fuzzy ontology of cyberspace (cyber-aura), an immediate time space ‎where, as Paul Virilio argued “the moment of departure is compressed to that of ‎arrival”. The flâneur's 'duree' is an impression of endless movement captured by ‎passing through the social space of modernity, and projected on his mind. Super ‎positioned by electronic gadgets, anonymous cyber-flâneur motionlessly witnessing ‎digital data bases through their natural propensity for omni spatiotemporal presence ‎within the boundaries of cyberspace.‎
The evolution from being an artist-Flâneur in a slow world to a cyber Flâneur is a daily ‎occurrence for most of us. For example, experiencing a series of paintings along the ‎platform wall in a London Underground station, from a stationary train, has its banal ‎outcome. The train passenger looking out of the window notices a single discrete ‎frame of the series, and analyzes it according to traditional fixed semiotics. When the ‎accelerating train leaves the platform, the series of frames advances creating a 'duree' ‎of a filmstrip with a varied meaning. The impact of the Doppler Effect is noticed as in ‎Turner’s paintings. While the passenger looks at his cellular phone display, or his Palm ‎held computer, his sight and mind quantum jumps to a global superposition, via the ‎singularity of net hubs. ‎
The speed of the train leaving the platform released the passenger from the attraction ‎of the old, slow discrete world dominated by a dichotomy between objects and ‎subjects. The process of acceleration of the subject's consciousness increased through ‎radio and television broadcasts, nowadays reached its peak at cyberspace where it ‎propagates at the finite speed of light. This fact led to a dramatic turning-point of the ‎disappearance of the traditional author, artistic discrete object, and art consumer, and ‎the birth of the cyber-aura witnessed by the cyber-flâneur. The meaning of cyber art ‎and its cyber-aura according to traditional iconological and iconographical tools ‎turned irrelevant. It is now valued according to a system of fuzzy logic, dealing with ‎the concept of partial truth with values ranging‏ ‏between “completely true” and ‎‎“completely false". The cyber-flâneur embedded with digital gadgets can render the ‎chaotic data of cyberspace meaningful, from traditional to a holistic point of view, ‎while carrying out electronic reading mediated the by the central hub. That ability is ‎similar to the physical phenomenon of the Bose-Einstein condensate of atoms of a ‎substance uniting, at near-absolute zero temperature, to a unique “super atom” that ‎sustains super-fluidity and acts in symbiotic harmony. The passenger/surfer is ‎witnessing cyberspace as Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's “noosphere”, the "sphere of ‎human thought" as it grows towards a greater integration and unification, culminating ‎in the Omega Point- the maximum level of complexity and consciousness to which the ‎universe seems to be evolving. [4].‎
The cyberspace demonstrates Heidegger's “thrownness”, and Dasein being, when one ‎always finds oneself already in a certain spiritual and material, historically conditioned ‎environment (data-sphere), in the extended world, in which the space and time of ‎possibilities is always unlimited. The cyber data noosphere is the domain of ‎ephemeral8's “Bits of My Life” (BML 2008) video blog –“Impressions of a data ‎Flâneur‏"‏‎. Ephemeral8 systematically employs his cell phone, to create a video ‎documentation ‎‏"‏backup‏"‏‎ of his daily life occurrences. ‎

From: http://www.youtube.com/ephemeral8‎
BML is his eternal ‎‏"‏digital mummy‏"‏‎ located in cyberspace superposition, ready and ‎available for use by present and future generations. The videos are mostly as is, ‎unedited, and directly uploaded from his cell phone to YouTube.com site. The Bits ‎are the “meme” for further construction/deconstruction of net audiovisual mutual ‎memory sequences consumed by other cyber-flâneurs. Google, YouTube and its ‎partners become a giant hub, dominating cyber-culture, global networked economy, ‎surfers' language and behavior. The Cyberspace is an extension of ephemeral8's foot, ‎eye skin and nervous system positioned on torus-like topology. The hyper-sphere is the ‎stage for ephemeral8's “Digital Skin 2” video bricolage of his endless cyber voyages, ‎embedding digital personal data as an extra data layer of Google Earth and Sky. His ‎body and mind extension are part of holistic terrestrial and cosmic digital data strips ‎produced the satellites and space telescopes. The three-dimensional universe contains ‎discrete objects and subjects, imploded to an Orbifold, uniting cyberspace, ‎physical space and cognitive space as digital data displayed on the computer monitor. ‎The orbifold topology drastically transformed the traveling experience. Cyber ‎Flâneur's superposition existence positions him in no time on each location on the torus ‎envelope. “Digital skin” is a cosmic virtual extension of Marcel Duchamp's unfinished ‎‎"Big Glass" piece, described in the videos' sound track by Duchamp's own voice, ‎digitally compressed. The departure and arrival of locations on the art piece are ‎compressed to a singularity.‎
The unification of Cyber Flâneur and cyber data sphere is the subject of an interactive ‎network piece, “1 year performance video” (2004), by M. River & T. Whid. A live ‎video stream of the two artists reveals their acts in two isolated cells. Every surfer ‎entering the site witnesses the two artists according to his local time; for example, if ‎the entrance to the site is in the morning hours the surfer will witness typical morning ‎activities such as eating breakfast, exercising, reading the newspaper etc. Surfing late ‎at night, will reveal the couple while sleeping. ‎

M. River & T. Whid, “1 year performance video” (2004). ‎
From: http://turbulence.org/Works/1year/index.php
The network installation transfers the burden of closed cells detention from the artists ‎to the surfer. The performance will be completed when the surfer finishes one year of ‎accumulated participation, then he will gain a digital copy of the piece's data base. The ‎surfers do not know definitely whether the video stream is live, or recorded, or if the ‎artists are real people or avatars. The server control program chooses the footage to be ‎shown, according to the time of entrance, the number and frequency of previous ‎transitions, and the duration of each video clip. The control ability designates the ‎server computer, the network and the program as powerful Artificial Intelligence art ‎creators, exactly like the two artists. The two cells containing the artists are identical in ‎size, painted white, and lighted by neon. Even the contents of the rooms are identical: ‎a wooden bed, clothes hangers, a shelf, chair, table, thermos for drinks, towel, and ‎toiletries. The two rooms look as though they have a common virtual wall. There is an ‎option for opening, in parallel, a number of windows of the work, and follow the ‎artists in different situations at the same time. As the local time of the surfer’s ‎computer changes, it thus affects the two artists’ activities, converting the surfer from ‎passive spectator to an active director of the happenings on the screen. The surfer is ‎situated in the center of the electronic Panopticon, while the computer screen serves as ‎a peep-hole for the global data institution. The same is true for the two artists while ‎using their laptops in their cells. The mind and gaze of the surfer activates the two ‎artists, and vice versa. Without the actions and gaze of the surfers, the piece will not ‎be realized. The observers and the observed become bits of data in hyperspace, ‎condensing its bits to a super-atom, or holistic conscious entity. ‎
In conclusion, throughout art history since the industrial revolution, artists have tried ‎to perform time - space compression by means of their art. The artistic creation reveals ‎the powers at work in the universe, and enables art consumers to be united. For that ‎purpose artists used new philosophical ideas and accelerating technologies to extend ‎their body and consciousness to a cosmic span.‎
The cyberspace epoch fulfilled this impulse by turning attention away from physical ‎body extension, toward virtual structures of global digital data. In cyberspace artist ‎and each surfer are privileged to transform their mind and physical body to cyber ‎superposition. This revolution led to a radical change in the definition of artist, art ‎object and art consumer. Reality has again become, as in the distant past, a mixture of ‎the soul, dream, trance, and myth, together with the material tangibility of daily ‎existence. The cyclic concept of time-space that dominated prehistoric culture, and ‎were exchanged for logical, linear, Western concepts, returned to its mythological ‎starting point. All are now particles of “pure artistic” sphere, gathering at the ‎singularity of holistic consciousness in cyberspace hubs, the eternal habitat of art from ‎now on. ‎
