M E T A B O L I C S # 7 
THURSDAY 12 JULY 2001 
20:00 +0100 (MET) 
Feat.: Auriea Harvey und Michael Samyn, Entropy8Zuper! (Gent/BE)

More Information, archived and live stream: 
http://www.linksverkehr.net/metabolics


RE: BROADBAND 

"Information Technology is not the Future. We are." That's the slogan of
AURIEA HARVEY and MICHAEL SAMYN, two of the best known and highly
decorated net artists and web designers of our time. Their work consists
of digital sculptures, fat files, coined by digital exuberance,
hilarious affluence and provocative splendour. 

In the developing country called internet, controversy about ressources
is sometimes as big as in defficient economies. Easily can artists who
in no case want to restrict their work on minimalistic ascii art, become
the target of digital correctness. AURIEA HARVEY and MICHAEL SAMYN
probably are bothered by the citicicsm of purists as little as they are
by the appreciation by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which
awarded them the highest decorated price for net.art - the SF MoMA Webby
Prize 2000. Whoever has a couple of hours left, and a highspeed internet
connection, can be sure to be part a very exclusive audience, when
watching works like "wirefire" or "skinonskinonskin". And Samyn and
Harvey consistently prove their emotional straightforwardness and
honesty. In the worst case they make clear that "Your browser sucks". 

At METABOLICS//STOFFWECHSEL#7 on the 12th of july 2001, AURIEA HARVEY
and MICHAEL SAMYN, Entropy8Zuper! present a collection of their
spectacular, CPU-clogging and bandwith-consuming projects. The work
they've been designing together as entropy8zuper.org for a while can
nearly be put in the tradition of baroque works of art. The relationship
between Harvey (entropy8) and Samyn (zuper), who also privately are a
couple since their collaboration at a project for the online gallery
hell.com, is a repeating subject in their works as well. Harvey was
considered as one of the most important web designers in New York,
creating websites for Lenny Kravitz and Janet Jackson and winning the
"Webby Awards" 1997 und 1998. Samyn, well known not only as an artist,
indisputably is one of the pioneers of interactive design.

 IS THIS THE FUTURE OF THE CITY?
 CALL FOR PROPOSALS:

 New Tokyo Life Style Roppongi Think Zone Motion Floor Project

 July 3, 2001

 Deadline for proposals: August 3, 2001
 Notification: September, 2001
 Term: November, 2001 to March,  2003 (tentative)
 Duration of exhibition: 30 days per artist

 The "Motion Floor Project" (MFP) is a new art exhibition program which
takes place at the new art space "New Tokyo Life Style Roppongi Thinkzone"
(Zone), opening in Tokyo's Roppongi in September 2001. Both the Motion
Floor Project and Zone are projects of the Mori Arts Center, an ambitious
new gallery slated to open in 2003, as part of a new development in
Roppongi Hills being undertaken by the Mori Building Company.  

 The MFP will host a series of video exhbitions, showing the new work of
contemporary artists, filmmakers, graphic designers, musicians, VJs and
other creators selected from all over the world. Each artist is asked to
explore this question: "Is this the Future of the City?" An open-ended
inquiry, artists are invited to interpret however they see appropriate,
exploring the many facets that the question implies.

 Conditions for exhibition:



* The selection of art works to be exhibited will be made by Bruce Mau
Design and Yukiko Harada, Curator of Zone  * Selected works will premiere
at the MFP. Following the opening of the Mori Arts Center, they will be
exhibited again as part of "Motion Floor Project Extreme" (MFPX). They will
also tour to several other venues outside Japan. Artists are welcome to
make other copies of their works but, if selected, one copy will belong to
the Mori Arts Center  * Works will each ideally consist of four large
moving images projected from the ceiling onto the floor, with each image
measuring 7 x 9 metres. Alternate proposals for employing the MFP
technology will be entertained, but this is the basic configuration of the
space.  * If selected, the final format to be delivered to Zone is to be
negotiated between the artist and the staff of Zone  *


The MFP will be the major activity of Zone, which is to enhance the
cultural exchange of Tokyo and the world, providing emerging creators and
artists with an active platform for networking and communication. Zone's
stated objective is to "Deal with the New and Urban" and is comprised of
the following three parts:

 Motion Floor
 Four large moving images will be projected from the ceiling onto the
floor, each measuring 7 by 9 meters.
 Urban Café
 Café and lounge where youth can hang around. A variety of events such as
lectures and open discussions will also be held.
 Urban Book Library/Bookstore
 A Library/Bookstore dedicated to the themes of city, architecture and fine
art.


 Your proposal will comprise:



* 1-2 page description of the work you intend to produce  * one page
summary curriculum vitae  * 5-10 slides of past work, videotapes  (or other
support material, as appropriate.)



 Remuneration:




* Remuneration: Selected artists will be paid a fee of $20,000 U.S.
including travel expenses to attend the opening in Tokyo. No additional
fees will be paid.



 Zone
 Zone is an abbreviated title of NewTokyo Lifestyle Roppongi Thinkzone, a
temporary contemporary art/culture space to be operated for the two years
prior to the opening of Mori Arts Center.

     Art Director: Bruce Mau (Bruce Mau Design Inc.)
     Curator: Yukiko Harada (Mori Arts Center)
     Associate Curator: Mizuki Takahashi (Mori Arts Center)
     Space design: Tokujin Yoshioka


 Mori Arts Center
 The Mori Arts Center is a new art and culture museum scheduled to open in
the "Roppongi Hills" new city core of Tokyo in the fall of 2003. As the
largest contemporary art/culture museum in Japan, the Mori Arts Center will
be a driving force for the creation and enrichment of a new urban culture,
presenting the contemporary creations traversing fine art, architecture,
graphic design, fashion design, product design and music.


 Mori Building Company and Roppongi Hills
 Mori Building Company is one of the largest urban developers in Japan and
has been devoted to the planning and creation of dynamic urban complexes
for more than 40 years. Fostering the long-term vision to revitalize Tokyo
into an ever more attractive city, the company is now constructing Roppongi
Hills, a large-scale new town development in central Tokyo. Accommodating a
variety of urban functions including Mori Arts Center, Roppongi Hills will
launch as a new cultural core of Tokyo where diverse energies interact and
new lifestyles are enhanced.



 Tokyo is a huge melting pot of fun, ideas and creativity. It absorbs
abundantly and generates abundantly. The Motion Floor Project at Zone will
become a vital part of the vibrant, stimulating energy of Tokyo.

 Ciudad/City  

Jorge Khawam
  "C. is the last opening, the ending stage of a self-definition process, like looking itself into a mirror, searching its identity, abstract, like its containing medium.  Is another dream, a no-natural one, is an ideal copy humans made of dreams. Matura is now the virtual space where Jorge's work is exhibited, and where virtually mine work will remain. On virtual times we'll be together forever". 

City/Ciudad, is an architectonic show of the Jorge Khawam's works. Is now  open, I invite you to visit it on www.cisvg.com or www.cisvg.com/museum/

 "C. es la última apertura, final de un proceso de auto definición, como mirandose en un espejo, buscando su identidad, abstracta, semejante al medio donde flota. Visto desde este lado, donde casi todo es material, fuerte, duro, crudo: real. El otro lado es limpio, transparente, hermético, precario y frágil; donde lo supuesto concreto: flota, levedad de lo leve, como  casi todo lo que no es natural. Mucha tecnología y conocimiento lo sostienen, en el mundo infinito de la web.. Es el otro sueño, antinatura, la ideal copia que el hombre hace del sueño .Mundo sontenido por la electricidad: Ciudad es la situacion ideal, de un museo virtual, es la ciudad que genera un museo, o es el museo el que genera esta ciudad?, que a su vez es muestra de un talento: el  de Jorge. Matura es la ciudad que habita en Jorge,  estatica,  perfecta, organizada; no hay gente, nadie la respira, nadie ensucia sus calles, la brisa no sopla, las voces no juegan en sus esquinas, ni los olores., nunca, pero !
nunca  veremos en ella a una cara conocida. Siempre seremos visores, viajante, viajeros. Aunque plantado en su centro, en ella soy tan extranjero como ustedes. Matura, es ahora el espacio virtual donde  se exhibe la obra de Jorge, y donde virtualmente permanecera la mia.  Eternamente juntos en los tiempos virtuales."

Ciudad/city, es una muestra de aquitectura, de Jorge Khawam. Que esta abierta a partir de hoy, en www.cisvg.com o en www.cisvg.com/museum/ .

÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷

IO-N.NET is a cooperative project in FLASH which presents artistic proposals
whose starting points are "neutral" technological elements  (HTML code,
iteration, synthesis, downloading, screensaver, etc.) and whose point of
arrival is the constitution of new perceptions: technologies far from being
instruments subjected to our will, restructure our being-in-world, our
identity, our imaginary and our esthetics.

The sub-projects of this platform finish by the locution "ION" and have each
one his own domain name, for example
"TERRITORIALISAT.IO-N.NET" OR "POSIT.IO-N.NET", etc.

You are invited to submit new projects. FLASH interactive animations must be
700X350 pixels.
You can directly send your projects on RECEPT {AT} IO-N.NET by joining your
source file FLA., the title of your project and topics, your name, country,
age and if you want a short cv.

If you want to use advanced technologies like ASP, PHP, MySQL, or others
plugins, contact me.

For more informations on the project concept, go to PRESENTAT.IO-N.NET or
DEFINIT.IO-N.NET

Subject: world bank protests?

i've been searching in vain for any news about attempts at "virtual"
protests of the world bank's virtual meeting at the end of june. i know
there were people trying to register for the event online. there was also
noise being made about other types of virtual protest.

if there's anyone who knows anyone or where (beyond the usual places, like
indymedia or globalexchange) i can find more info, i'd be most grateful.

Soundtoys  Invite  for 2001...
NEW  festival  and presentation.

www.soundtoys.net  

Soundtoys are looking for artists, musicians who may want to contribute
interactive  web sound toys , and texts.  Soundtoys are  interested in
works  that explore  the  use  of  technology  to advance  audio visual
communication.   Soundtoys are  new audio  visual  experiences; and  this
includes  art toys, games, generative music,  interactive environments,
shockwave,  etcs.  Soundtoys  explores multimedia experiments and  the
parameters of this new media world.   The  aim  is to  push  the  current
definitions  of new  and  online  interactive  music  and  visually
inspired  audio  visual  systems.

Soundtoys fuses the new relationship between  music and interactivity and
allows the audience some control  in the perception of the music. This
change in the relationship between the audience and the artist will
radically change our aesthetic perception  and  attitude  to music  and
sound.  The user is  able to choose what they experience. Soundtoys can
exist  as art, toys,  generative music, interactive environments,
shockwaves, environments etc.

Many web technologies  are  explored  including  shockwave,  flash,  vrml,
java, and  the   soundtoys site offer  insights  into the  diversive  and
creative  nature  of  the  web  available  to todays  artists.

This invitation is open to artists,  digital musicians,  and creative
programmers  and writers. We are looking for artists, musicians  who want to
contribute sound toys, and texts for the planned book. As well as exposure
through this website the work will be promoted worldwide at festivals and
cdrom.  

The    soundtoys site  has  already been  reviewed  in the  Independent,
some  was   shown  on  national  tv  and  it  is  Sonify's  site  of  the
week. 

Soundtoys    already  features  these  artists....
