EUROGRAPHICS 2004  -- ART SHOW -- Deadline is June 1

Flash: John Lansdown Award:
The prestigious John Lansdown Award will be selected by the Art Show jury.
The award will be dedicated to an interactive web site or CD-ROM that works
technically and artistically and that is innovative in its use of
interaction. It should reflect on the quality of work that would be worthy
of the John Lansdown award. The Awardee will receive 500 Euros.

John Lansdown, who died in February 1999, was an inspirational leader who
encouraged innovation in others by his own creative works. At Eurographics
2000, a Multimedia prize competition was set up in his honour. John was
known for the way he saw things from a different angle to most of us, often
bringing new insights by an off-beat approach, and for his long term role as
secretary to the Computer Art Society (CAS).   The CAS was formed in 1968 as
branch of the British Computer Society by John Lansdown (architect) and Alan
Sutcliffe (pioneer of computer music) (UK). 

Travel Burseries: A limited number of travel burseries of â?¬300 each, will be
awarded to selected artists who to make project presentations as part of the
official EG04 programme.

All works selected will be presented during the conference, represented on
the EG  2004 website, and available in a small publication. A poster will be
created with all selected works represented in the show.

All selected artists will get free access to the conference.


The annual conference of the European Association for Computer Graphics.

New American Radio

New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. is pleased to announce the
availability of 115 full-length "New American Radio" works for online
listening at; and the release of an article about
the series and radio art by Jacki Apple.

"Although avant-garde artists have experimented with radio since its
inception, it was the advent in the 1970s of non-commercial,
listener-sponsored public radio on the FM band, including college and
local community stations that opened up the possibilities of art on the
airwaves, not simply as an isolated incident but as a viable alternative
to rigidly formatted commercial radio dominated by advertising
interests. This new opportunity was augmented by the revolution in both
recording and broadcast technology and easy consumer access to
sophisticated equipment and processes that rapidly changed the nature of
production and distribution. Thus in the 1980s radio and audio
artworks--sound art, experimental narratives, sonic geographies, pseudo
documentaries, radio cinema, conceptual and multimedia performances--a
whole panoply of broadcast interventions that confronted the politics of
culture, subverted mass media news and entertainment, and challenged
aural perceptions, infiltrated the broadcast landscape and acquired an
audience. New American Radio was foremost among the series nurturing
this work, commissioning, producing and distributing contemporary
American radio art nationally and internationally for over ten years."
From "New American Radio and Radio Art" by Jacki Apple.

Subject: Oulipoems and Sporkworld

Millie Niss is launching her Oulipoems:

The six works presented in Oulipoems range from poems, to poetry games, to
tools for writing poetry. They are inspired by the Oulipo movement, a French
literary movement which combines writing and mathematics. Members of the
Oulipo create works of literature that are governed by rules
("constraints"). For example, all words might have to contain only the vowel
'e' or words might be spelled phonetically. Members of the Ouliopo are also
interested in algorithmically generated texts, including, especially,
text-generating machines which can result in an infinite, or at least very
large, number of different texts...
I do recomend this work! Also Browser at: , an

Subject: Version>04:invisibleNetworks


In the words of the hardworking organizers of Chicagoâ??s
Version>04:invisibleNetworks (April 16-May 1, 2004,,
the festival sought â??to uncover and open channels of discussion, hidden
orders, unseen hands, blackboxes, backdoors, wormholes and access points.
Participants in Version>04: invisibleNetworks will function as nodes and
hubs in this amorphous system and construct this yearâ??s decentralized
convergence.â?? Wait. â??Decentralized convergenceâ??? Is this self-contradictory?
A productive tension between coming together and dispersing, and especially
between publicity and invisibility, was both manifested and critically
explored in a variety of interesting ways throughout Version>04. My own
experience of it was necessarily partial, and my reflections can claim to be
neither comprehensive nor adequate or representative â?? but such is the
nature of the beast.

The past two Versions took place over a few days each and were centered at
the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (on the themes of â??the commonsâ??
and â??technotopia vs. technopacalypseâ??). Version>04 was more spread out in
both space and time â?? it took place over three weekends and the intervening
weeks at a wide variety of venues. It comprised a wide range
of media: sound, video, internet, poster, bicycle, performance/intervention,
city walk, presentation, booth, discussion. These were organized into a
etc.). Exhibitions included the participatory ZROX at BuddY, in which people
were invited to bring work and/or to use a photocopier to make their own
reproductions of the work hanging on the walls, and In These Timesâ??s â??Paper
Politicsâ?? exhibition of politically-engaged hand-printed media (both
provided an eclectic sampling of the inventive, the visually compelling, the
witty, and the irate). Screenings included â??Cultural Autopsyâ?? with works
providing critical external views of western culture, selected and
introduced by Arjon Dunnewind, director of Impakt Festival in the
Netherlands Fenslerfilmâ??s wickedly funny series of remixed GI Joe PSAs, and
a screening of the soon-to-be released, devastating film The Corporation
(directed by Canadian filmmakers Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott). A range
of bicycle-based media included a Zinemobile from Quimbyâ??s that could be
biked around to distribute zines; the Human TV Network with its battery
powered, bicycle-mounted TVs; and Joshua Klinbergâ??s presentation of Bikes
against Bush bicycle-based activist devices. Pink Bloque contributed
(remotely) to the convergence through its rousing performances at the
Washington, DC March for Womenâ??s Lives. Anti Gravity Surprise unleashed
utopian energies by encouraging people to fill in and wear buttons that
read â??I want a president who [blank].â?? On the closing night of the
convergence, the Yes Men made an appearance, fresh from their infiltration
of the Heritage Foundationâ??s annual meeting of rightwing think tanks.

The Yes Men, in that they combine website parody, physical world
interventions, and email announcements, typify (or at least provide the most
celebrated example of) the kinds of tactical relationships to technology
highlighted by Version>04. An obvious emphasis on political action emerges
from the preceding list, though some of these actions are political simply
by virtue of the fact that they deviate from the expectations of regimented
and surveilled daily life. If Version>04â??s decentralized spatio-temporal
orientation also represents a less specific focus on â??new mediaâ?? (and
perhaps, I should say, on â??artâ??) than previous Versions, it also suggests
the extension of networked media and metaphors (rhizomatically, as it were,
both in form and content) into other forms of aesthetic and cultural
production and political action. Apart from facilitating communication on a
basic, pragmatic level, what does the internet offer to creative political
action? It offers its metaphors: the network, the chain of replication, the
virus. It offers the opening up of possibilities for different
temporalities, different broadcast modes, different styles of creating
networks and collaborations. Even the significance of what goes on at the
â??basic, pragmatic levelâ?? â?? the possibility of sending an email to five or
twenty people, writing a blog for an audience of a dozen or a hundred â?? is
not to be underestimated.

Much recent discourse links the notion of the internet as a â??network of
networksâ?? with the emerging â??movement of movementsâ??â?? molecular, networked
resistance to corporate globalization and violence. While on the one hand
this implies deterritorialization, drift, and loosely
affiliated nodes, on the other hand it privileges the real-time, the
face-to-face, the ostensibly more authentic, the one-on-one or n-on-n --
where n is â??small,â?? whatever that means. What constitutes small and how does
such a group conduct itself? (Small enough to fit in a room? Small
enough to sit in a circle?) Modernity and its media, with their
universalizing/singularizing force, their extreme poles of â??privateâ??
individual and mass â??public,â?? donâ??t help understand small-group dynamics (or
see the family as the only model). If postmodernism supplies some of the
theory, it doesnâ??t necessarily follow that it provides tools to guide the
practice. How can collaborations of various kinds foster sustainable
alternatives to dominant culture? As part of the follow-up to Version>04,
co-organizer Daniel Tucker is circulating questionnaires on collaborative
practice that might prove useful to a continuing discussion on this topic.

On this topic and others, a series of conversations emerged at organized
discussions on collaboration and alternative resource spaces at particular
spaces (Polvo and BuddY) and in ways that were both more formal (lectures
and other presentations) and more informal (casual conversation) at the â??nfo
xpoâ?? at the Chicago Cultural Center. Many of the participants in Version>04
staffed booths at the nfo xpo, which provided an informal space in which
exhibitors could network with each other and the public in an unstructured
way, and also attend presentations happening next door in the CCCâ??s
auditorium. Because the CCC is in the heart of downtown Chicago, office
workers on their lunch hour â?? unsuspecting as well as informed â?? also
wandered in and out.

High Schoolâ??s â??Map Roomâ?? exhibition, with a selection of works addressing
â??cartographies of power, satellite maps of secret facilities, left wing
dialectics and investigations of (sub)urban spaces and real estateâ?? This
exhibition framed an important set of issues: an effective metaphor of
â??mappingâ?? emerges as the correlative to the creative network (graphing,
creating alternative spaces and redescribing existing ones, documenting,
recording, situating relationships). This is not a new idea (constituting
something of a trend in recent art) but its proximity to the notion of the
invisible network was a provocative one. Mapping inherently makes something
visible, but alternative maps can make different kinds of things visible,
such as human narratives, memories and emotions associated with particular
places: psychogeographies. Some works sought to render visible the invisible
geographies of power and privilege that construct the urban environment
(such as the critical city walks were conducted by Ryan Griffis of Temporary
Travel Office and Michael Piazza of the Stockyard Institute). Other street
actions temporarily reclaimed public space from consumer capitalism, as in
interventions by UK participants Ange Taggart of My Dads Strip Club and
Richard Dedomenici (acting as â??insecurity guards,â?? altering Starbucks cups
to read â??Fuck Off,â?? and pushing vacuum cleaners to â??clean up after
capitalismâ?? â?? what Dedomeniciâ??s website calls â??poetic acts of low-grade
civil disobedienceâ??). Members of Carbon Defense League (now headquartered at
RPI in Troy, NY, but still engaged in projects in Pittsburgh, where the
group originated) presented and led discussion of their maphub project
( This will create a map
interface that keys narratives, descriptions, discussion forums and user
communities to points on a Pittsburgh map and will also provide kiosks
around the city to make the project broadly available. Finally, map-themed
net art projects in the VERSION_NET thread include [murmur] (an audio
project in which sites in Toronto are linked to audio stories accessible by
cell phone), trace route, kmuni city project, and radial

Invisibility has a lot of potential valences. As the Notes from Nowhere
collective (some of whom were on hand to present their work) writes in We
Are Everywhere, â??Clandestinity can be the key to our survival, or it can be
our downfall.â?? The clandestine can be the way in which the communicative
modes and styles and technologies of corporate culture can be unobtrusively
used against it through mimicry and culture jamming. Secrecy can mean
escaping surveillance and detection. Invisibility can mean submerging
individual identities into a powerful collective force. It can also result
in restricting oneself to solipsism and inefficacy -- not having an audience
or not feeling recognized. Elements of invisibleNetworks confronted the
governmental deployment of secrecy and surveillance, the secret histories of
covert action by (for instance) the CIA, the absolute demonization of the
secrecy of the â??enemy.â?? As Jack Bratich pointed out, in his talk on â??Secrecy
as Spectacle and as Strategy,â?? the putative WMDs donâ??t need to be found if,
by racist definition, Iraqis are so cunning and secretive that they must
have hidden them with absolute success. Using a series of film and video
clips, Mary Pattenâ??s talk, â??The Romance of Clandestinity,â?? usefully
contrasted the allure of the idea of secrecy as tinged by celebrity culture
(in which concealing necessarily implies some form of revealing), with
unromantic practices of clandestinity, anonymity, and unobtrusiveness in
struggles both historical and present. Invisibility can also be the way in
which some stories donâ??t get told and some people(s) remain unrepresented.
Secrecy can lead to paranoia â?? sometimes quite appropriate, sometimes
corrosive. Thus, the theme requires rigorous, if provisional and flexible,

Within these distinctions â?? while remaining clear-sighted about the risk of
â??solipsism and inefficacyâ?? â?? a crucial lesson, I think, is not to expect
direct political impact ALL the time. One question that arose in
conversations in and around Version>04 is the role of surplus aesthetic
investment â?? aesthetic attention that goes beyond communicative
functionality, or even (in terms of hand-production and small-scale actions)
might restrict potential audience. One of the lessons of Version is that
there is a time and place for both aesthetic surplus and communicative
directness. And activist cultures also need what Marc Herbst called â??radical
group therapy,â?? something that can take a variety of forms, some of them
aesthetic. Creating a sustainable activist culture not just communicating a
political message, but creating a culture that people canâ??t help but want to
be part of.

Finally, the small number of complaints I heard about Version>04 were about
access (some found the schedule a bit opaque and its changes frustrating)
and a corresponding homogeneity of audience (this varied from event to
event, but at many of them, most attendees could be described as young white
artists). The frustration with flexibility â?? when itâ??s someone elseâ??s
flexibility and not oneâ??s own -- and the homogeneity of audience might index
some of the potential downsides of the â??invisible networkâ?? or the
privileging of the small group. Niche markets, the production of highly
specialized consumer identities and the development of more and more
narrowly defined demographics, an emphasis on personal networks and informal
modes of communication â?? these have also been appropriated or promoted by
corporate marketing strategists. The small scale of the collaborative
affinity group is not necessarily an antidote to manipulation or power
relations. The invisible network is a generative concept, but not an
unproblematic utopia.

The temporality of the convergence is further extended by the continued
internet presence, with its series of â??hubsâ?? (websites related by affinity,
influence, or submission to the conceptualization of this yearâ??s theme) and
â??worksâ?? (selected internet works curated by co-organizer jonCates) and an
â??invisible network repositoryâ?? that are all well worth exploring. In terms
of the actual time frame the sixteen days of Version>04 made for a less
concentrated experience. But perhaps the best thing about it for someone
living in Chicago was that it allowed events to enter into the rhythm of the
everyday â?? making the semi-surreptitious, partially-networked,
critically-conscious festival a model for what life could be like all the
