NEW YORK, NY? is pleased to announce the opening of our second
online exhibition curated from works in the Rhizome ArtBase, an archive of
over 1400 new media artworks established in 1999. The show is entitled
³Location is Everything² and is curated by New York City artist and curator
Jillian Mcdonald, co-director of Pace University Digital Gallery.

Works included in this exhibition are ³PdPal² (2003) by Julian Bleecker,
Scott Paterson and Marina Zurkow, ³[murmur]² (2003) by Shawn Micallef,
³Louisiana Walk #14² (1996) by Janet Cardiff, ³Atmospherics/Weather Works²
(2003) by Andrea Polli, ³GPS Drawing² (2000) by Jeremy Wood, ³Hlemmur in C²
(2004) by Pall Thayer, ³Survey Field² (2003) by Germaine Koh, and
³Infrasonic Soundscape² (2001) by Hidekazu Minami.

³Location is Everything² explores ways in which artists repurpose mapping as
a creative medium; or perhaps it reframes mapping as a procedure that is
intrinsically creative. The cartographic forms in these projects are drawn
according to, as Mcdonald explains, ³personal or collective experiences,
some informed by external factors like weather data or pop-culture
references, and some allowing the map itself or local residents to inform
them.² These reciprocal actions of forming and informing effect both maps
and their makers, suggesting that ³who?² and ³why?² are equally important
questions to pose when interpreting a map as simply ³where?.²

³For more than five years has been preserving and archiving new
media art works in the ArtBase,² said Rachel Greene, Executive Director of ³Producing these curated exhibitions, that contextualize these
artworks and bring them to life next to one another, is a wonderful new
program for us. Rhizome-sponsored exhibitions offer a different but
important form of support for new media artists, who often have limited
opportunities to show with institutions. And, given how much excitement
there is about locative media right now, I am thrilled that Kevin and
Jillian have produced such a timely, relevant exhibition.²

Rhizome Exhibitions is a program begun in November 2004, which invites
international artists, curators, and writers to curate online exhibitions
from works in the ArtBase.

Member-curated Exhibits is a companion program also launched in November
2004, which allows Rhizome members to curate and interlink their own online
exhibits from works in the ArtBase, using a web-based curating tool. Links
to member-curated exhibits are interspersed throughout via
member pages and included artworks. As they are added, member-curated
exhibits will also appear here:

Subject: launches 2005 Net Art Commissions



NEW YORK, NY, January 19,2005, an online platform for new media art and discussion, today
launched its 2005 Net Art Commissions
at The 2005 Net Art
Commissions will also be presented at the New Museum of Contemporary
Art on June 28, 2005.

+ About the Commissioning Program +   

The Rhizome Commissioning Program makes financial support available to
artists for the creation of innovative new media art via panel-awarded
commissions. For the 2005 cycle, artists were invited to submit
proposals relating to ³games² as defined by the website

³Since 1996, Rhizome has been supporting the new media art community by
providing a place where artists and others can share information,
present work and engage in dialogue,² said Rachel Greene, Executive
Director of ³We are thrilled to be able to provide direct
financial support to artists engaging with timely themes, such as
?games.¹ New media artists have a limited ability to sell their work,
so commissioning and promoting these artworks is a different but very
important form of support for them.²

A panel of jurors, Yukiko Shikata, an independent curator based in
Tokyo, artist Natalie Bookchin, Francis Hwang of, and
Rachel Greene of, selected seven winners from a pool of
more than fifty proposals submitted by members of the
community. Rhizome members were also invited to jury and award one

Paul Catanese, Warren Sack, Jason van Anden, Luis Hernandez Galvanand
Carlo Zanniwill receive awards of $2,500-2,900 each. Commissions of
$1,750 will be awarded to Kabir Carterand C-Level. Carlo Zanni¹s
project was commissioned by members of the Rhizome community that voted
using secure web-based forms.

The Rhizome Commissioning Program is made possible with funding by the
Greenwall Foundation, the Jerome Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation
for the Visual Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Additional support has been provided by members of the Rhizome

+ About the Commissioned Projects +

+ Listen by Kabir Carter+

Listen is embedded within the tradition of Adventure or Interactive
Fiction games, except that in it visual descriptions are accompanied by
descriptions of sound events. The game uses simple text commands
germane to Interactive Fiction: Look, Take, North, Wait, and?particular
to the game?Listen. Kabir Carter¹s compositions, performances, and
sound installations have been presented at Atlantic Center for the
Arts; PS122 Gallery, and d.u.m.b.o. arts center. He continues to
realize Walking in the City, a net art project first commissioned by
the Miami-based music festival Subtropics. Carter is currently a guest
composer in Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Create AT iEAR residency

+ Misplaced Reliquary by Paul Catanese +

Misplaced Reliquary is a handheld curiosity cabinet of relics collected
by an eccentric curator. The relics are contained within a virtual
repository taking the form of a gameboy advance ROM that can be
"played" online or downloaded to any gameboy advance (with the correct
transfer hardware). An artist's edition of five game cartridges has
also been created. Paul Catanese is a Hybrid Media Artist and Assistant
Professor at San Francisco State University. His work focuses on the
creation of ³hybrids² - art forms that re-imagine uses for various
technologies to reveal hidden cosmologies. More information can be
found at

+ Oversaturation by Luis Hernandez Galvan +

Available space is always at stake: be it media-space, psychic space
or  physical space. This game is about keeping personal space clear,
and as in life, it's theoretically an infinite process. The objective
of the game is to keep the continuously growing structural patterns
from oversaturating your space by passing through, and thereby
annihilating them. The longer the structures remain untouched, the more
they'll grow in thickness and strength, and the older the segments
become, the more difficult they are to pass, or even impossible. Luis
Hernandez Galvan studied architecture in Mexico City. His practice
ranges from installation, to architecture, to game modifications. He
has been published in architectural journals and participated in public
art programs. Some work can be seen at
Currently he is working on a piece on the San Diego- Tijuana Border
along with Anne-Marie Schleiner.

+ Agonistics: A Language Game by Warren Sack +

The images and actions used metaphorically by political theorists to
understand democratic discussion as a game or competition -- "agonistic
democracy" -- can be instantiated as interactive, graphical objects and
dynamics. ³Agonistics: A Language Game² is a literal instantiation of
these metaphors that can played by posting messages to a public, online
discussion forum. Warren Sack is a software designer and media theorist
whose work explores theories and designs for online public space and
public discussion.

+ Farklempt! By Jason Van Anden +

Farklempt! challenges its players to manage their emotional-health
through the skillful manipulation of feelings against other players
attempting to do the same. Equal parts addictive videogame and
compelling visual art, Farklempt! continues artist Jason Van Anden¹s
aesthetic investigation of how our emotional states impact the world
around us.

+ Media Blackout by Michael Wilson, a member of c-level +

Media Blackout is a 3D computer game in which the player is confronted
with corporate interests, religious fundamentalism and military
aggression through the deliberate manipulations of corporate media.
Surrounded by media noise, government propaganda, spectacular phenomena
and a sea of oil, the player¹s character attempts to maintain
psychological resistance and ultimately transcend the media threat ­
escaping 'corporatized consciousness'. Media Blackout creates an
allegorical environment through new media technologies ­ attempting to
immerse both player and viewer in the true 'psychological operations'
of our time. Michael Wilson is a member of the new media co-operative
c-level. He is an expanded media artist who employs operational
aesthetics to re-imagine contexts, networks or systems.

+ Average Shoveler by Carlo Zanni +

Inspired by the graphics of Leisure-Suit-Larry (1987), AVERAGE SHOVELER
is an online game challenging the boundaries between photo, paintings,
game and short movie. It's snowing, and you have to keep your path
clean. Each flake of snow contains an image taken live from
news/politics/sport/ web channels: you have to shovel pumping news from
your head, as your life suffers from news overload. Average Shoveler
includes two prestigious collaborations: famous composer Gabriel Yared
("Cold Mountain") scored the game, while Siri Kuptamethee's "Indigo
People" created outfits for the character of the videogame. Note:
FlashPlayer7 required. It is recommended to shut down any other
application and to turn speakers on. Carlo Zanni is an Italian-born
artist whose work is focused on the intersection of computation and
representation. His work has been shown in galleries and museums, among
them: P.S.1 - NY, Chelsea Museum NY, Analix Forever gallery Geneva. His
first (net) retrospective is scheduled for October 2005 at the ICA in
London. ;

Subject: The Long Tail of Art Webring

>From my blog Absent Without Leave

The Long Tail of Art Webring
January 19, 2005 The Long Tail of Art
This Long Tail of Art thing has three parts:
1. Serious artists who are making some form of relatively inexpensive work
available over the Web
2. A loose network of these artists
3. A casual agreement to cross promote the network, and a desire to create a
value-space so that others can point people to the loose network.

The idea is that we will build up our sMedia Capital over the long term and
we will end up with a rollling income from selling work. sMedia Capital is
the traffic that accrues over time to an interesting site - it takes a while
for promotional work to embed itself within the networks of interest, but
once that promotion is embedded, it tends to have a slow decay time.
The loose network is a casual arrangement to create valuable destination(s)
that are worth other building links to. So, anyone within this loose network
must offer something above and beyond the sale of art. For this initial
(experimental) project, I am creating a Web Ring that I will control access
The Web Ring is called the Long Tail Web Ring (LTWR). It has some simple
rules that are in flux, i.e. they will evolve by discussion:
1. Members of the LTWR are active art producers who are selling some form of
work via the Web
2. Member sites of the LTWR offer some online value beyond the selling of
work, e.g. an art blog, personal art site, archive etc, whatever
3. Members of the LTWR agree to cross promote the LTWR to others. This is
informal, i.e. mention it, link to it, point to it, put it in your email sig
4. Members agree to place the LTWR webring buttons ABOVE THE FOLD on the
front page of their web site. This means it is visible on when someone
arrives at the site. Members are encouraged to put the links on every page,
but hey, no pressure.

That's it for now. The LTWR is an experiment. I'm interested in what sort of
work people will offer within LTWR. I don't expect it to be huge oil
paintings, but I've got no real view of what will work and what won't. I'm
doing digital prints and signing them, but anything from drawings to sound
files to conceptual work should be fine. Try me.

As my contribution to my research into the Long Tail of Art (here, passim),
I decided to sell prints from my work at a flat rate $50 per print (plus
postage). I didn't want to do anything complicated, but I thought I had an
obligation to start my ball rolling. I'm using to show all my
images and I've made a group called $50
<> prints where I'm putting all the
available work More about how this will work soon.

I'm going to put up a page about the LTWR and make some link buttons etc. As
soon as I've got two more members I'll open up the ring and we can take it
from there.

seek collaborative, media-based projects (either original media pieces or
documentation of completed collaborative projects) that creatively engage
the mechanisms of policy and planning used to govern a given
ecosystem. A diverse range of of ecosystems may be considered, including
urban, rural, uninhabited, or virtual (e.g. internet) systems. Engagement
may include direct renewal of the system, strategies of agency and social
participation, or others, but should strive to be conscious of its
aesthetic and ethical framework. We are especially seeking web-based,
computer-based or video pieces (DVD, VHS, etc.).

Turbulence Commission: "" by Nathaniel Stern and Marcus

"" proposes a dialogue between the virtual and physical
processes of sign and site design and perception. Stern and Neustetter have
transformed several information-based web pages into collaboratively
constructed communication sites; they commissioned local sign-makers in
Johannesburg, South Africa to "re-mix" five websites (Fox News, Google
Images,, Solidarity and Turbulence) by painting stylized
versions of each image on their main pages. The hand-painted signs were then
scanned, prepared for the web, and uploaded.

Each of the five sites can be seen in three ways: 1) the original site (on
its original server); 2) the "getaway" site in edit mode; and 3) the
"getaway" site in non-edit mode. In edit mode, participants from anywhere
in the world can click on an image in any one of the "getaway" pages and
upload their own replacement images. In non-edit mode each individual image
is randomly pulled from the site's database, thereby transforming the
"getaways" into dynamic collages that signify something completely new.

Concept, Artists/Designers: Nathaniel Stern, Marcus Neustetter; Information
Architecture: Templar Wales; Programming/Scripting: BlinkNewMedia; Core
Sign-Writers: Mduduzi Manyoni, Tebogo Phafudi, Bongani Nkou, Kasa Thamae,
and Nkosana.

"" is a 2005 commission of New Radio and Performing
Arts, Inc. (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible
with funding from The Greenwall Foundation.


NATHANIEL STERN (NYC/Johannesburg) is an internationally exhibited
installation artist, net.artist and performance poet. His interactive
installations have won awards in New York, South Africa and Australia, and
his has been featured in festivals all over Europe, Asia and the US.
Stern¹s collaborative physical theatre and multimedia performance work has
won three FNB Vita Awards - including Best Presentation of a New
Contemporary Work - and has been featured on the main stage at the
Grahamstown Festival (South Africa). His poetry repertoire includes the US
National Poetry Slam competition and the RSA HIV/AIDS Arts, Media & Film

MARCUS NEUSTETTER has been developing projects that address the relationship
between art and technology. These take the form of mobile, installation, and
web artworks tackling the translation of data through different online and
offline platforms. In this process he has been exploring the digital and
analogue ways of representing virtual experiences. Neustetter has exhibited
and been actively involved in developing opportunities and platforms for
local digital art through projects in South Africa and Europe. These include
ARS Electronica (Austria), Transmadiale.03 (Germany) and E-tester (Spain).
As director (with Stephen Hobbs) of The Trinity Session and sanman (southern
african new media art network) and The Gallery PREMISES, Neustetter is
actively involved in developing cultural strategies through a range of
projects. Currently he is a consultant for UNESCO DigiArts Africa.
