Subject: My Time at Rhizome

Hi, everyone.

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that next month I'll be stepping down from some (though not all!) of my responsibilities at Rhizome.

Later today Lauren will post a job announcement for the position of full-time editor. I am scaling-back to a part-time position as Curator-at-Large and I will also act as one of Rhizome's regular staff writers. In my revised position I'll continue to organize programs and events on behalf of Rhizome at our affiliate, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, and at partner venues in the US and abroad.

My two and a half years at Rhizome have been so enriching and I'm proud of the work my amazing colleagues and I have done to take Rhizome's publications and programs to an even higher level. I don't want to say too many goodbye-like things because I'm not leaving, I'm just transitioning to a role that will allow me to continue contributing to an organization I love while giving myself more time to focus on my own art practice and to finish my dissertation.

Please stay tuned for announcements of some exciting programs on the horizon. Until then, I'll see you on the front page!

Hello everyone,

As you may know, Rhizome has begun our 2007 Community Campaign. This year, we need to raise $30,000 to sustain the growth and vitality of our programs. While all subscribers to this list have received individual appeals, I wanted to write a note to this group -- a core, vocal constituency of Rhizome -- and ask you to lend us a hand with promotion.

We created buttons you can put on your website that say 'SUPPORT RHIZOME' and will lead people back to to make a contribution!

You can download the SUPPORT RHIZOME buttons here:

Its simple and easy :) and we'd be grateful for any help on this front!

Thank you,

Turbulence Commission: "The ShiftSpace Commissions Program" by Dan Phiffer and Mushon Zer-Aviv

Turbulence has commissioned ShiftSpace and now ShiftSpace commissions you.

Ten development grants of up to $2,000 will be awarded to individuals and collectives using ShiftSpace as a platform to create new "Spaces" and "Trails".

About ShiftSpace: While the Internet's design is widely understood to be open and distributed, control over how users interact online has given us largely centralized and closed systems. The web is undergoing a transformation whose promise is user empowerment -- but who controls the terms of this new read/write web? The web has followed the physical movement of the city's social center from the (public) town square to the (private) mall. ShiftSpace attempts to subvert this trend by providing a new public space on the web.

By pressing the [Shift] + [Space] keys, a ShiftSpace user can invoke a new meta layer above any web page to browse and create additional interpretations, contextualizations and interventions -- which are called "Shifts". Users can choose between several authoring tools -- called "Spaces" -- that allow web users to annotate, modify and shift the content of a page and through ShiftSpace, share that shift with the rest of the web. "Trails" are maps of shifts (shiftspace content) that create meta-layer navigation across websites. These trails might be used as a platform for collaborative research, for curating net art exhibitions, or as a way to facilitate a context-based public debate.

Go to the commissions site ( ), watch the introductory video, apply for a grant and help us spread the word.

"The ShiftSpace Commissions Program" is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs."


Dan Phiffer is a new media hacker from California, interested in exploring the cultural dimension of inexpensive communications networks such as voice telephony and the Internet.

Mushon Zer-Aviv is a designer, teacher and a media activist from Tel-Aviv whose work explores media in public space and public space in media. Mushon is the co-founder of,, and the Tel Aviv node of the Upgrade international network.

Subject: Conference Call: The Social - Online, Mobile and Unplugged Social Networking

please forward


Futuresonic 2008
Urban Festival of Art, Music & Ideas
1-4 May, Manchester, UK

The Futuresonic international conference and the Social Technologies Summit invite proposals for talks, presentations, workshops and session themes. Submissions of innovative formats for social interaction and experimentation are encouraged.

The conference theme is The Social - Online, Mobile and Unplugged Social Networking.

The Futuresonic conference is a place where important international discussions take place. Over recent years hype about social software and web 2.0 has raged largely unchecked. The conference will bring together leading figures to unpick the hype around the latest technological zeitgeist, broaden the debate, and propose and explore a critical understanding of social technologies.

Deadline for conference submissions -- 5pm 18th December 2007

See also -- A GBP 5000 commission plus many other opportunities are available in the Futuresonic 2008 Art, Music & EVNTS calls for submissions.



Futuresonic brings 500 opinion formers, futurologists, artists, technologists and scientists from the digital culture, music and art communities to Manchester for four days of seminars, workshops and events.

At the heart of the festival is the internationally-acclaimed Futuresonic conference, and its focal point the Social Technologies Summit.



Digital culture burns bright with a vision of being not in isolation but in groups, placing the relations between people first. Beyond the hype lies ever greater isolation and conformity. Join us as we go in search of the social.

The 2008 conference will explore the theme of The Social - Online, Mobile and Unplugged Social Networking. The conference will also mark 40 years since people took to the streets of Paris in 1968 calling for society to be abolished, and will assess the claims of todays digital culture as a potential catalyst of radical change amidst wider currents of radicalism.

Computers have become social interfaces for sharing digital media and collaborating to build online communities and folksonomies. Social technologies create an extension of social space, and new ways for people to come together, meet and share in today's society. As well as social software such as MySpace, Flickr, YouTube and FaceBook, there are technologies created and maintained by social networks, such as communities of developers and users working collaboratively with open source tools, or that enable people to connect with each other in public places, or that bind people together in their everyday lives.

The Social Technologies Summit will explore the new social spaces and the social implications of technologies for the many different kinds of people who make, use and are affected by them.

Some proclaim the death of email. Life is supposed to be 'more social' - easier to communicate, the world at our finger tips, more sharing, more social. But this is a time when we see how electronic communication can isolate us, as more and more people drown in a deluge of email that generates stress, even reducing IQ. Additionally, 'online communities' are based upon an artificial equivalence between 'users' which obscures power relationships and issues of ownership.

In all parts of the globe people are seeking to open up or hold onto places to meet and communicate freely, online and offline. In India we see emergent kinds of community media, in South Korea new social uses of the mobile internet, and in Brazil the spread of 'cultural hotspots'.

Join us as we go in search of the social today.



Futuresonic now invites submissions to the Futuresonic conference and
the Social Technologies Summit.

Proposals for talks, presentations and workshops plus also session
themes are invited. Submissions of innovative formats for social
interaction and experimentation are encouraged.

Futuresonic has 4 strands: Art, Music, Ideas and EVNTS. Currently in its 12th year, the festival occupies the orbits of both music and digital culture.

A focus in recent years has been presenting artworks in unexpected city spaces, and on social art and social technologies.

Futuresonic now invites artists, thinkers and makers to get social and present new types of collaborative social experience at Futuresonic 2008.

This is a time when we see how electronic communication can isolate us, as more and more people drown in a deluge of email that generates stress, even reducing IQ; and it is 40 years since people took to the streets of Paris in 1968 calling for society to be abolished.

Join us as we go in search of the social today.

Web 2.0...
I take part
you take part
he takes part
we take part
you all take part
they profit.
(Slogan from Paris '68, remixed)

Futuresonic is supported by Arts Council England North West and presented in association with Imagination at Lancaster.

Subject: LX 2.0 Project's new project by Carlos Katastrofsky: lastwishes

For immediate release:

Lisboa 20 Arte Contemporânea is launching on November 8th (next Thursday) LX 2.0 Project's new comission, the project lastwishes by Vienna-based media artist Carlos Katastrofsky (

Carlos Katastrofsky (1975) has been creating net art pieces that question both the notion of what an art work is and the notion of ownership of these processual projects, not defined by physical properties. Projects such as internet art for poor people (2006), free interactive readymade (2005) or the original (2005) are just a few examples of Katastrofsky's interest in exploring alternative ways of distributing and owning net art, always within the institutional art world logic and always through a critical, yet playful approach. His projects are mostly conceptual, not defined by fancy visual effects or sophisticated programming. There is no "beautiful" or "poetic" things to be seen on the screen, just the critical use of massified online tools that he masters in order to achieve his own agenda.

lastwishes, the project the artist created specially for LX 2.0, is a great example of the lack of any visual aesthetics in his work. In a simplistic (yet pretty accurate) way, there is nothing to be seen in his new project. lastwishes deals solely with the principles of communication. Mailing lists are popular tools for the exchange of thoughts and opinions: they make multiple (written) dialogues possible as well as the archiving for future references. In this work the mailinglist-software "mailman" is modified to allow only one single posting from a sender. The user is able to subscribe and to receive messages endlessly but post only once and by this immediately get unsubscribed. The idea of "exchange" is thereby turned into something absurd: one can listen but only talk once. Sending a message thus requires meaningful content, "chatting" becomes impossible.

The ephemeral quality of this sending-process reminds of zen-qualities: be quiet and learn to listen but if you really have to say something meaningful then talk. Above that, the question arises: how is communication possible when there is a quiet, listening mass and no one dares to stand up and speak? According to an Austrian proverb, "talking is silver and being quiet is gold", but being quiet only makes sense within the process of communication.

Organised by independent curator Catherine Morris, the exhibition will showcase extensive archival material associated with this event and offer various viewpoints of the 10 performances presented at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York in 1966.

The Foundation has loaned a number of objects and materials from its 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds to the exhibition, including, among others, a sample of the factual footage produced by Alfons Schilling, stage props, technological components, and technical drawings by engineer Fred Waldhauer.

Saturday 10 November 2007
Circolo dei Lettori - Palazzo Graneri della Rocca
via Bogino 9, Torino
7.30 p.m.

On Saturday 10 November 2007 the six finalists shortlisted for the Share Prize will be made public at ?Il Circolo dei Lettori? in Torino in conjunction with Artissima?s ?Saturday Night Art Fever?. This year will be the second edition of the international competition of digital artworks, and the panel of judges will be presided over by Bruce Sterling (guru of new technologies, science fiction writer and design journalist), who is in Torino to collaborate with the Piemonte Share Festival and serve the city by providing his own special brand of visions.

Open to all Italian and foreign artists, the aim of the Share Prize competition is to discover, promote and support digital arts. Competitors for the prize are required to create an artwork that employs digital technology as a language of creative expression.

The artists and work selected by the panel of judges will take part in the 4th edition of the Piemonte Share Festival. To coincide with the broad spectrum of events within the Torino World design Capital calendar, this year?s festival ?Manufacturing? from 11 ? 16 March 2008 will explore the relationship between digital art and design.

The Piemonte Share Festival is an event dedicated to the promotion of digital art and culture, and provides a platform to discuss the continual changes taking place during the digital epoch in which we live. These changes will be investigated from different standpoints in a variety of settings.

[img][/img]About Blip:

The Blip Festival is a four-day international cultural event taking place in New York City this November into December, focusing on the 8-bit scene - musicians and artists who use low-bit videogame and computer hardware as their creative tools. The festival is the widest-reaching event in the history of the form, boasting a roster of over 40 international artists performing and exhibiting from places as diverse as Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Argentina, and across the United States.

Manhattan art space The Tank and New York artist collective 8bitpeoples announce the Blip Festival 2007, a four-day music and multimedia event taking place in New York City November 29 - December 2, 2007. Focusing on the modern artistic exploration of primitive video game and home computer technology and featuring 40 musicians and visualists from around the world, the Blip Festival showcases artists adopting and repurposing familiar but forgotten hardware - such as the Commodore 64, the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Atari game console and home computer line, and the Nintendo Game Boy - exploring their untapped potential and unique aesthetic character. The festival's nightly concerts and daytime screenings, workshops, and presentations are supplemented by B I T M A P : as good as new, an adjunct visual art exhibition, held at acclaimed Brooklyn gallery vertexList. The Blip Festival 2007 offers a fascinating cross-section of the chiptune musical aesthetic and related low-bit visual art, in an explosive event taking place at the epicenter of the creative world.

The festival will host evening concerts on all 4 nights. Each night's concert will cost $10 and include 8 musical acts and a variety of live visualists. Tickets will be available online starting in early November and will also be available at the door. Festival passes will also be available for sale in early November.

In addition to concerts there will also be daytime workshops and screenings on Saturday and Sunday. A complete schedule of those events is forthcoming.
