Subject: Call for Proposals -- New Media Caucus Panel at College Art Association Conference

The New Media Caucus invites panel proposals for our affiliated panel session at the College Art Association annual conference in Dallas 2008. Submitter(s) will chair and organize the proposed session its call for submissions or invitations (the board will help with the admin, and publicity, etc.).

Proposals should outline:
… Concept for the panel
… Areas of investigation
… Questions the panel will raise
… Specific topic areas presenters could address
… What types of presentation formats will be considered.
… If your panel will be invitational who are possible panelists (you don't need to ask them, we just want to see the kind of people you would have as panelists).
… If your panel will have a call for submissions, give us a timetable for the process
… Note: for the affiliated panel, while the panel chair should be a New Media Caucus member, panelists need not be CAA members or even artists. Chairing and participating in an affiliated open session (open to the public) does not disqualify you from submitting a proposal for the following year's CAA conference.
… A CATCHY TITLE -- you really need to stand out in the sea of panels.

As a sample proposal, below is of one of a previous years' panel sessions:

Video art has been used as a conceptual, self-reflexive tool to examine society, culture, and media hegemonies for over 40 years. Video art moves about walls in flowing digital paintings and confronts us like a voice in installations. Similarly, sonic sculptures draw us through gallery spaces, inviting our attention and participation. This panel encourages artists who work with video and/or sound to discuss the relationship of their art to aesthetics, content and technology. Presenters could address: What strategies do artists using video and sound now adopt? How does the public assess the artistic quality of a form that represents entertainment and cheap reproduction? How do we talk about the shared conceptual space between sound, installation and video art? The panel invites proposals from artists, theorists and art historians. Unusual formats are encouraged.

Proposals will be reviewed by the New Media Caucus executive board. The deadline to submit your proposal is May 15th. Notification of acceptance will be late May. Your role on your panel will be as chair. The chosen panel will be submitted to CAA on June 9th.

Email submissions by May 15th to: gwyan.rhabyt AT

Subject: Touring Show

Rhizome is pleased to announce the opening of Touring Show, the fifth show in our online exhibition series, Time Shares, co-presented with the New Museum of Contemporary Art.

Curated by Marisa Olson

Touring Show is an online exhibition of artists' maps and 'virtual tours' of contested spaces, ranging from the Military Industrial Complex to the US-Mexico border, to the body. The mapping and social organization of spaces has not only had a profound impact on the cultures that inhabit them, it has also contributed to the development of a number of artistic traditions, including cartography, drafting, and landscape painting and photography. More recently, the emergence of the artists' lectures and tours as artistic media has coincided with the practice of 'radical cartography,' which in its most elemental terms is the charting of a space's relationship to the empire or ideology that governs it. Also significant to the specific cultural moment traced here is the mingling of technology's impact on our landscape and the use of technologies to explore and document this terrain. The artists here offer a combination of web-based and public projects that can be interpreted as tours in this vein. While some of the projects read as interventions, others simply present the information needed to navigate viewers' own subjective traversals.

Organized by Rhizome and co-presented by the New Museum of Contemporary Art, TimeShares is a series of online exhibitions dedicated to exploring the diversity of contemporary art based on the Internet.

Subject: folly announces new Virtual Creatures online exhibition

I am pleased to announce the launch of folly's new online experience:

Virtual Creatures is an online exhibition offering a playful and interactive experience within a virtual environment for new audiences of folly. Each artist-created Virtual Creature will exist within cyber space as a living entity to be petted, visited and/or played with.

A different creature will be highlighted each month at to encourage visitors to explore the meaning and intent behind the creature’s creation and existence, connect with other visitors and folly staff by contributing to discussions and express their opinions in forums and comments sections.

folly is a not-for-profit digital arts organisation, working in Lancashire, Cumbria and online.

New folly webspace a home to Virtual Creatures

The internet is full of artificial life, and as you surf the web you might happen upon some of these invented beings. But for your convenience and pleasure, in this online exhibition folly has brought together in a new webspace the work of five artists who have created their own virtual creatures for you to play with. These creatures all live in cyberspace, where you can pet, tease, manipulate and connect with them.

Once you’ve visited and fallen for these creatures, you can talk about them in folly’s specially created online forum where we will be highlighting a different creature every month.

Internationally-renowned artists featured in the project include Igloo and Jason Van Anden.

folly Programme Co-ordinator Jennifer Stoddart said “Virtual Creatures is part of our follyplay campaign, designed to reach out to new people not yet familiar with digital art. By setting sophisticated pieces of computer programming in a fun and interactive context, we hope many new people will realise the possibilities of this exciting approach to creativity”.

Subject: Illogic of Sense: The Gregory L. Ulmer Remix


BOULDER, Colorado, May 10, 2007 -- The Alt-X Online Network, a space "where the digerati meet the literati" and on the Internet since 1993, announces the release of a new Alt-X Press ebook entitled "Illogic of Sense: The Gregory Ulmer Remix" edited by Darren Tofts and Lisa Gye, and designed by artist Joel Swanson of

Illogic of Sense: The Gregory L. Ulmer Remix
Edited by Darren Tofts and Lisa Gye
Design by Joel Swanson

Contributors include Niall Lucy, Jon McKenzie, Linda Marie Walker, Craig Saper, Rowan Wilken, Marcel O'Gorman, Teri Hoskin, and Michael Jarrett, with an introduction by editors Tofts and Gye.

"Illogic of Sense: The Gregory L. Ulmer Remix" is an exciting new ebook publication that employs theorist Gregory Ulmer's invocation to invent new forms of electronic writing. As the ebook's editors, Darren Tofts and Lisa Gye, write in their brilliant introduction, "Ulmer has been at the forefront of thinking about new cultural formations as the paradigm of literacy converges with digital culture." Ulmer's work has been central to contemporary thinking on the future of writing and his international presence as one of the leading figures in media arts discourse has influenced a multitude of disciplines from electronic literature and Internet art to critical theory, communications studies, and art history. The ebook features a diverse group of artists, theorists, and creative writers who develop new forms of hybridized "digital rhetoric." Their inventive and audacious experiments take advantage of recent developments in the field of new media studies, and as part of Alt-X's !
mission to participate in the creative commons provided by the Web, are available for free download.

This provocative collection of multi-tracked writing puts into play many of Ulmer's breakthrough theories summed up in his most recognized hot-button terms: applied grammatology, heuretics, post(e)-pedagogy, textshop, mystory, and choragraphy. Encouraged by the example of Ulmer's own hyperrhetorical writing style, the authors incorporate collaged imagery, mp3 soundtracks, and QuickTime movies into their innovative multimedia mix while exploring how these same extensions of "writerly performance" explode the false barrier between academic discourse and spontaneous poetics, narrative and rhetoric, and autobiography and fiction. Positing an "illogic of sense" to reclaim what Ulmer calls an "anticipatory consciousness," designed to utilize the force of intuition as a way to invent emergent forms of knowledge, this grouping of hypermedia texts showcase how interdisciplinary writers can remix the methodological approach of an avant-garde philosophy propelled by Ulmer, one that pri!
oritizes an ongoing process of discovery and media arts assemblage.

The ebook is beautifully designed by artist Joel Swanson of, who crosses his visionary design sensibility with state of the art technology to produce an original work of ebook-art that many will view as finally fulfilling the long-promised potential of online publishing to use stimulating visual arrangement, media hybridization, and typographical ingenuity to blur the distinction between publication, exhibition, and design performance.

“Simultaneously celebrating and expanding on the writing performances located in Gregory Ulmer's rich oeuvre of totally remixable source material, the collection of essays in 'Illogic of Sense' adhere to an experiential approach to creative/critical writing and in so doing teach us how to write a theory of poetics that will help us invent a new field of study that I would call interdisciplinary digital humanities." - Mark Amerika, series editor, Alt-X Press; author of "META/DATA: A Digital Poetics" (MIT Press, 2007)

Conference Report: Dutch Electronic Arts Festival 07
by laurie halsey brown

'Open Systems - a perspective on the Dutch Electronic Arts Festival 07'

‘Interact or Die!’ was the eighth edition of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival. The first took place in 1995. DEAF07 (April 10-29) also marked the 25th anniversary of V2, the Rotterdam-based Institute for the Unstable Media, who organizes the festival.

I attended DEAF03 as well as DEAF04, on which I reported for Rhizome in an article entitled, 'Where’s the Art in Electronic Art?' Each DEAF Festival includes an exhibition, and the DEAF04 exhibition was a bit of a high-end science fair with a large predominance of work that fit the ‘push button, step on platform to make something vaguely pointless happen’ profile. During a symposium at DEAF04, Dutch theoretician/ writer Arjen Mulder described interactivity as two sub-systems connecting: art as a system and the audience as a system to equal the meaning as a process of creation. If the artist presents an Open System then the audience will form a network to then ‘create’ the piece.

The corresponding DEAF07 ‘Interact or Die!’ exhibition did include several works that reflect Mulder’s concept of interactivity.

'Lowest Resolution,' by Zhang Peili (China) reinterprets the scientific process of the video signal to poetically refer to an interactive 'approach.' The viewer’s movement down a long, dark hallway affects the resolution of the image on a LCD screen at its end. The closer one gets, the blurrier the video image, until it totally vanishes.

Hu Jie Ming’s (China) 'Go Up! Go Up!' consists of 24 TV screens stacked as a vertical column. The TV screens show a number of people climbing frantically. The audience interacts with the climbing scene by either shouting at them or making noises--which intensifies the climbing--but they still fall down hopelessly, and start to climb again. The work exemplifies the Chinese proverb that the more you want something, the more unattainable it becomes.

Everyday components of the physical and virtual worlds converge in 'Object B' by Exonemo (Japan). A large cube screens a video game on all four sides. Placed in front are beautiful assemblages using ordinary materials such as hair dryers, keyboards, chainsaws, drills, cleaning brushes--all interconnected to move and create sounds in response to the video games. This collision of the everyday creates an opening for the viewer’s own experience of interactive process.

Roman Kirschner (Austria) created a subtle art / science experiment based on a model of a chemical computer by Gordon Pask in the early 1950s. The piece is called 'Roots,' and like many traditional science experiments, it is contained within a glass tank--although beautifully lit and placed in a dark room. The tank is filled with electricity, which is the key to the transformation of the root-like apparatuses in the tank. They make organic connections to one another amidst bubbles that dissolve into clouds: dark iron crystals grow, break off and sink to the dark ground. Interact or Die!

The DEAF07 symposium focused on the ways that ideas become effective through interaction within networks.

Jeanne Van Heeswijk is a Dutch artist who focuses on the ‘social in the public realm’. Her talk during the symposium dealt with her interest in new forms of intervention in public space. She discussed how public space is controlled and non-typical behaviors are not tolerated. She referred to the “Free Hugs Campaign” video on YouTube that won an award for being ‘Most Inspirational’ although the campaign itself was forbidden in several countries, including Australia and China. Van Heeswijk is presently working on a new piece in which empathy is seen as a radical act. She believes that living in a city is an art and we need the language of art to negotiate our experience within the city. Her interventions are designed to interact with public space to create alternative connections: a technocratic approach vs. the traffic control of space.

At other DEAF07 seminars, the concept of social interaction was recurrent. “Transdisciplinary Innovation” included a talk by Sally Jane Norman, the Director of Culture Lab in Newcastle, UK. She discussed how transdisciplinary practice “will constantly display itself,” as it reflects contemporary society. Transdisciplinary practice differentiates itself from interdisciplinary practice by the level of interaction between collaborators, and by the outcomes of the collaboration. Norman is focused on participatory knowledge structures in response to how larger organizations create niches. The Culture Lab positions experts in situations outside of their area of expertise. This creates an awareness of points of non-communication, which is seen as an aspect of a path leading to new areas of discovery. The Culture Lab is interested in accessing the non-generic user, towards creating social software that can affect social change.

DEAF04 had an extremely positive seminar series that was also continued in DEAF07. Nat Muller is the curator for the Snack and Surge Brunch series, which is subtitled “Biting at the Poetics of Power.” Each of the four seminars in the series included lunch as art, with the themes of each discussion topic reflected in the food. Here, eating became an art experience, and a tasty form of interactivity.

The Out in the Open panel dealt with the myth of openness which is specific to collaborative process. Lauren Wright from discussed DIWO: Do it With Others and considered how to emphasize the ‘with’ in the title. One thing she felt was relative was collaboration vs. remote connection. Tim Jones, production coordinator for NODE London, discussed NODE as a model for other cities to connect all their media-based organizations to form one network. He also focused on social software that can extend the collaborative process. To find the right tools, the fundamental collaborative elements should be understood: “Look at how people interact and then develop software that develops out from that. Start with behavior, and then technology is used as an extension of this.” During this discussion, artist Saul Albert used MindMap software to visualize what was being said. He also presented the project ‘The People Speak’ in which artists create strategies for engaging public debate.

Rules of Engagement asked, 'With 72 million blogs, how do they impact on culture? Can they be a form of activism?' Panelist Mazen Kerbaj (Lebanon) attempts to communicate his experience globally by putting drawings of war on his blog. Xu Wenkai (China) maintained that blogs have little impact on local culture as the government controls the blogs. In China, there are firewalls in place that can filter and edit blogs based on list of objectionable words, but the government has very little understanding of the content, so the filter system can be sidestepped. The list of objectionable words gets smaller all the time, but he is looking forward to a day when the list is obsolete. Ellen Pau (Hong Kong) is an artist and activist who thinks that the online tool is powerful for protest in that it preserves memories of urban experience, in relation to a rapidly changing Hong Kong.

Media Insurgency looked at insurgency as legitimate from the inside. Andrea Natella (Italy) created in which one can bet on where the next international attack will be. The project looks at fear vs. reality, presenting a live map of perception, to see if perception corresponds to reality. Panelists Naeem Mohaieman works on documentaries about Bangladesh politics that deal with audience perception, and is concerned with how his work continues or dissuades stereotypes. He also discussed the inside vs. outside / local vs. global media lens. Contemporary political actions are hyper-aware of media influence, and work in tandem with the media in some cases. His presentation was followed by a live web cast from Extremadura in Spain where they had set-up a temporary media lab near a disused power plant in a 'struggle to free the building.'

Marked-Up City was monumental in that it brought together Mushon Zer-Aviv (Israel) and Leila El-Haddad (Palestine) who are working on a project as part of The festival was the first time these two collaborators had met face-to-face. They are using place as a foundation for each culture to share commonalities. Their project is groundbreaking and of great value, both politically and artistically. It deals with urban tourism and a reflection of the human scale of a city as it demonstrates how two cities can live the same realities. Also discussed was city branding by Merijn Oudenampsen (Holland) who saw city identity--as constructed through tourism--as a simplistic representation of a city.

Another interesting seminar, entitled ‘Create’ (a.k.a. Creative and Technology Exchange), focused on online media archives. Researcher Keith Baker discussed the importance of these archives and the lack of memory in net.culture. The seminar advertised its focus thus: 'As technology-inspired art is gaining more widespread acceptance, documentation of the rich and diverse media art histories is becoming increasingly important.' This continues to be the success of the DEAF series.
