Subject: Palm Rants (re)distribution



Palm Rants -  an extended performance for web & 
Palm OS
by G.H. Hovagimyan



Palm Rants is a series of performance/ rants I will 
create over the
course of the (re)distribution exhibition curated by 
Patrick Lichty. 
The information will be delivered in 3 forms;

1.  a short movie or audio file that may be 
downloaded onto a PDA and
viewed with TealMovie software.

2. a  clickable image animation downloadable via 
an AvantGo custom
channel

3.  a text of the rant  downlodable via an AvantGo 
custom channel.


The intention of this piece is to extend the idea of 
performance art
into the hand held format.
Accessors will receive a new performance every 
week for 16 weeks.  The
content of these performances will be  
meditations on information
dispersal  and the post media environment.  I will 
approach this as both
an exercise and a challenge.  The piece will be an 
extended performance
over a sixteen week period.  The challenge is to 
stay fresh, to become
both an information nomad and an information 
filter.  The subject of the
performances will be the work of art in a 
networked environment. The
subject of this piece will be the artist in a 
networked world.  Here’s a
list of possible and realized rants.

EntertainMe - Entertain Me  (first presented at the 
Warhol Hijack)
Who Pays ?  Who’s Paying for This?
Big Cars Are Not Cool Anymore.
Who Turned Off The Lights and Air Conditioning!  
(California energy
lament)
My Food is Poisened.
Foreplay.
Love Songs From My Computer. (synth voices put 
you in the mood)
Dot Com Today, Dot Gone Tommorow.
You Have Been Replaced by a Machine.
The First Ones On Me. The Second Ones On You.
Ever Feel That You Are Fooling Yourself.
What Will It Take?
The First Blackout.
Big Medicine Killed My Father.
Video Art Is Not The Next Big  Thing. DUH
Buy and Sell and Buy and Sell and ....
And You Thought You Were Famous.
Several Ways to Brush Off Telemarketers.
The End Of America.

We live in an information environment in America.  
The question is
twofold; how truthful is the information we are 
given and whose point of
view does it represent? Do you really want to be 
told how to think?
This is big brother corporate style wrapped in an 
entertainment package.
The next level is the rebellion against all forms of 
information.  It
goes beyond deconstruction. It sweetens the idea 
of total disbelief.
Believe what you see. Believe in yourself or better 
yet make it all up.



How to access the piece:

There are two ways to access the work.

A. 
If you have a Palm Pilot you can set up an avantGo 
account  &lt;http://www.avantgo.com&gt;
 Where it says create channels you add the url's 
for each new piece as they are announced.
After that when you HotSync your Palm to the 
internet the pieces will download into your 
avantGo page on your palm.  

Here's the starting list:

I.  Reach out and touch someone  -  
&lt;http://www.thing.net/~soapop/palm.html&gt;   (33k)
2. Entertain Me   (text)														 	-  
&lt;http://www.thing.net/~soapop/palm_1.html&gt; (8K)

B.
For those of you with lots of ram;

download one of the teal files onto you computer 
via a browser. On your next HotSync add 
TealMovie player and movie to your *Install

Subject: 7 sept 01 list serv

sorry for cross-postings and duplications!


subscribe by writing to
<mailto:action-request {AT} mail.aktuelle-kamera.org?subject=help>


we propose to use this list for the communication between all participants,
to prepare and discuss the 7 september 01. this mailing list should be
therefore no public list. but the address of this mailing list can be used
for all others to reach us.

if it should be desirable to set up a public list later (like 7s01-announce
oder -discuss) we could do this.

please communicate in english. if someone of you have problems doing this,
write in your own language, we will try to handle this. (and we hope that
these lines are comprehensible also for english speaking people ;)

the mailinglist has a web-frontend at
https://mailman.drno.de/mailman/listinfo/action. there you can handle your
account, unsubsribe and view an html-archive of all past mails. if you are
not familiar with mailing lists or if you have any technical questions,
please contact technik {AT} aktuelle-kamera.org


// the next steps

at the moment, we, aktuelle kamera, are waiting for an acknowledgement from
some german groups we invited to join this action day . the next few days
we will put some informations on our website concerning this action, as the
scp's new york and souriez vous etes filmes, paris already did this (see
below).

all actions, which will be viewable by public webcams, should -- at its
best -- happen at the same period, so people all over can watch the actions
by internet. we think which period would be suitable for this project.
first we proposed 19.00 -- 20.00 GMT.
but this ignored two facts: daylight saving time and the need of daylight
for some actions (e.g. at 20:00, there would be no more daylight at our
time zone).

therefore we propose 17.00 -- 18.00 GMT, in order to have a period which
could be suitable for all time zones.
17:00 - 18:00 GMT is
= 10 -  11 a.m. west-coast, usa
= 12 - 1 p.m colombia
= 1 - 2 p.m. new york/usa
= 19.00 -- 20.00 europe/berlin (GMT +1 + DST) (sunset about 19:00, daylight
until 20:00 in central europe)
= 20.00 -- 21.00 istanbul  (GMT+2 + DST)

is this timerange acceptable for everybody?

we think it should be a main point of this action day, that we have an
equal communcation (therefore this list) and no centralized structures.
(e.g. a main website: feel free to do your own information page, etc.)

we have done some suggestions to shape this action-day. we would like to
know whether these ideas find your consent, or if you have any comments,
variations or alternatives.

the next time, we should start to think about public relations and
announcements and how to distribute our ideas and intensions for doing the
7s01-actions. it would be good, to have a basic info in different
languages, that we can distribute to independant and mainstream media.

FUSHIGI Jungle: Information

We are pleased to inform you of a large scale interactive art and technology
exhibition that opened recently in Kobe. If you happen to be in Japan during
the period  please make a visit. This is the largest exhibition of
interactive art in Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe, Nara) area that has ever
taken place.

FUSHIGI Jungle  is a part of  21Seiki Mirai Taiken-haku (21th Century
Experiencing Future Expositon), which is a part of the Kobe 2001 Festival.
The goal of the whole exposition is in presenting latest technologies and
visualizing future. The exposition takes place in a 3000m2 hall, and has
been attracting 1500 to 4000 visitors a day since it opened.

FUSHIGI Jungle is a 100% interactive exhibition focused on art and meant for
general public. The aim of the show is in inviting visitors to experience
and feel the wonder of digital interactive communication beyond the border
of art and technology.

Sixteen interactive art pieces and projects from artists, research
laboratories and companies are exhibited on 500m2 floor space. Some works
such as Kazuhiko Hachiya's piece are site-specific, integrating images or
texts from children that are entered to a joint competition.
(http://www.mirai-kobe.com/mouma/index.html) Artists, engineers and
researchers also contributed texts and messages for children, which are
shown on the site on transparent balloons.

Since the exposition had opened, FUSHIGI Jungle has become the most popular
part of the whole show attracting families, children and senior citizens as
well as those who are interested in art and technology. Although it is a
great challenge for both artists and organizers to run such a show for a
long term with so many visitors, we hope the exhibition will prove the
importance and possibility of bridging art and technology, and make them
accessible to general public.

The exhibition is curated by Machiko Kusahara, produced by Noboru
Tsubaki,coordinated by Atsuko Kobayashi, with number of students from
universities and art institutions in Kobe, Osaka and Kyoto, who collaborated
in organizing and operating the whole program. It is an experimental project
as well, to establish a new model in organizing a large scale media art
exhibition.

Message for Children from FUSHIGI Jungle (by Jotaro Shibuya)

Human beings have come to know many things, living together with nature from
ancient times. They learned to use language, count numbers, and build
houses; they also made many kinds of tools. In a while, human beings made
computers which could perform difficult calculations at once, and they made
new games such as video games, using computers. Yet, human beings still live
with nature: the sky, the forests,and the sea. Nature is full of wonder, and
the computer is full of wonder. Discover more exciting wonders to create a
wonderful future, using your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, and body.

Subject: Australian Federal Police Desecrate Aboriginal Sacred Ceremony 

> URGENT MEDIA RELEASE >
 -From the Aboriginal Tent Embassy Canberra-> PLEASE CIRCULATE > > 

The Cops Have Done It Again 

In the name of Reconciliation the National Capital Authority (NCA) and the
Australian Federal Police (AFP) on Monday the 30th July 2001 at 4:30 in
the  afternoon once again desecrated indigenous sacred peace ceremonies.

Acting  Chief Executive of the NCA Mr Lindsay Evans with the standover
tactics of the AFP, without any written or verbal notice, moved onto the
site of a sacred  ceremony between the now under construction Commonwealth
Place and the  existing Aboriginal Tent Embassy and impounded the
ceremonial objects,  destroyed Humpies, extinguished the three ceremonial
fires with chemical  extinguishers and impounded the keepers of the
ceremonial fires' camps  including tents and swags, food, cooking gear and
personal effects.  

The  violation of this sacred peace ceremony is the greatest sacrilege
under  Aboriginal Law. 

 Uncle Kevin Buzzacott, keeper of the ceremonial peace fires at the
Aboriginal Tent Embassy questioned "who or what gives these people the
authority to desecrate our sacred ceremonies? We (at the Aboriginal Tent
Embassy) are yet to obtain any written notification.  They (the NCA and
the AFP) do not have any jurisdiction or authority or law to desecrate our
sacred peace ceremonies". 

 The cultural insensitivity and inappropriateness of the AFP and NCA
illustrates the gross chasm between the action of the government agencies
and the feel good reconciliation rhetoric flounced around by all levels of
government.  These actions of the National Capital Authority and the
Australian Federal Police are, under the banner celebrating federation and
reconciliation are perpetuating cultural genocide. 

 "We ask the question 'Is there any justice for indigenous peoples', the
original peoples of this land.  If they are able to do this to our sacred
ceremonies the Aboriginal Tent Embassy does not stand a chance against
these  corrupt people" - Uncle Kevin Buzzacott. 

CALLING FOR JUSTICE  Tuesday the 31st July 2001 at 10.00am Aboriginal
People and their supporters  will march from the Aboriginal Tent Embassy
to Parliament House in Canberra  to demand justice.  We call on all people
to attend to show their support.

CONEXIÓN REMOTA: net.art  {AT}  Macba - Barcelona

CONEXIÓN REMOTA is a selection of net.art projects, curated by Roberta Bosco
and Stefano Caldana, as an online project of "ANTAGONISMOS. CASE STUDIES",
an exhibition of political art curated by Manuel Borja-Villel director of
Macba - Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (http://www.macba.es).

FEATURED ON:
http://www.macba.es/english/09/conexion_remota.html
and from 26 July to 14 October 2001
at Macba - Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (Spain).

"This selection is not based on a need to monumentalise net.art and much
less to objectivise it or turn it into a fetish. Its aim is to establish
connections and open up a new area for debate, confrontation and critical
analysis. As well as testifying to the ever-increasing and improving digital
art efforts, all the projects selected reveal processes in which a large
number of people have intervened, dealing with the exchange of information,
action and reaction, real problems and situations which demand a stance.
Their authors want them to become catalysts for artistic expression and
public response, to serve as detonators and to point fingers, to make
understanding easy and if necessary, confrontation too."

ART.BOX
CELLARS

Holidays are here. We go swimming, have excited times, visit interesting
corners of the world. For this period let us leave a (post) box at the
gallery and make a pledge to deliver the things we come across or create
and consider interesting for others personally, or by friends,  by
traditional, or electronic mail.  Let us be conscious that the thing we
want to put into the artistic box, into which the Piwnice BWA (BWA
Cellars) will turn for the time being, is going to travel, cross any
borders; it might be variously prepared for its mission. After arriving
in the site, it will become part of our collection. Out of this
collection we are going to extract and create the show which will be
changing and, considering its open character, probably follow various
paths.
We are initiating the box with several works which make references to
our group stay in Broumov, the Czech Republic. In its old brewery groups
of Czech, Polish and German artists took part in the Criss/Cross
exhibition. Our participation in the project was of a little different
character than other two groups. We did not fetch any ready works. We
brought our ideas hoping that the site would help us to specify a form
of expression.
Imagine a small town. At midday for one hour all shops are closed, and
loud speakers placed in the town centre play old songs. Against such a
setting in a corner of a small market square, at the table there is
sitting a Norwegian called Jesper. Next to him, there is a notice board.
It says that Jesper wants to get married and, what is more, on the day
of the Criss/Cross exhibition opening. Well, he has not been successful
but we have got the photo of him leaving the shop with an ice cream on a
wooden stick. And we are thinking of putting this portrait into our
exhibition-casket.

We invite you to join our project. Surprise yourself, surprise us with
your choice. Our (& your) address: Piwnice BWA, ul. Wita Stwosza 32,
50-149 Wroc³aw Poland, and remember to subscribe ART.BOX or maot {AT} wp.pl
(works sent by  {AT}  mail are to be printed in A4 format)
ART BOX artists and initiators: Piotr Czurczak, Miros³aw Kulla, Marcin
Mierzicki, Marek Otwinowski, Waldemar Pranckiewicz.
The exhibition is open till the end of holidays.
The Piwnice BWA Gallery, 32 Wita Stwosza Street, Tue.-Th. 11 a.m. - 6
p.m.; Fri. 12 a.m. - 8 p.m.; Sat. - Sun. 12 a.m. - 6 p.m.
The Piwnice BWA Gallery is part of the biggest gallery in the town of
Wroc³aw. This space is usually made accessible to young artists.
Wroc³aw - a thousand-year old town lying on the River Odra in
south-western Poland, a country in Europe.
The artists: Czurczak, Kulla, Mierzicki, Otwinowski, Pranckiewicz -
young people who like Czech bear, good fun and art.

The latest news:
The Piwnice BWA Gallery has uncovered its mystery: a chakra. The issue
is to be researched by the committee including representatives of
different art scenes. Here is the announcement on the chakra of one of
its discoverers: Such a site is a potential, it can mix it for people, I
mean, either help or make sick. I am for protecting the chakra before
politicians and the army.

Chakras - in Sanskrit cakra means a wheel - are energetic centres. They
intervene to draw down, transform and distribute universal (divine,
cosmic) energies in a psychophysical body of each man.

REMOTE SENSING
A videographic topography of the global sex trade
in the age of geographic information systems

Ursula Biemann © 2001, 53 min. digital video, English


Remote Sensing traces the routes and reasons of women who travel across the
globe for work in the sex industry. Voluntarily or not, women are displaced
in great numbers from Manila to Nigeria, from Burma to Thailand, from
Bulgaria to Europe: female bodies in the flow of global capitalism.
Spiralling down from an orbital view captured by image satellites, the
video-essay takes an earthly perspective on cross-border circuits,
trafficking routes and illicit economies. The highly digital documents
generated for this video connect new geographic technologies to the
sexualization and displacement of women on a global scale. Using the latest
images from NASA satellites, the video investigates the consequences of the
U.S. military presence in South East Asia as well as the European migration
politics.

Remote Sensing visualises the multi-layered meaning of geography where the
sexualization of women in global capitalism is linked to the implementation
of new technologies in often contradicting ways. While the Internet
facilitates the migration flow, particularly for women via bride market,
the border reinforcement technologies, on the other hand, hinder and push
it into the illegal sector. The European visa politics are quite explicit
in their practice to channel migrant women directly into the sex industry.
The assemblage of documents reveal how technologies of marginalization
affect women, and particularly economically disadvantaged women, in their
sexuality and how powerful players like States, scientific complexes and
military institutions, install a sexuality that eroticizes hierarchies.

Female bodies are the new cargo in the highly lucrative transactions across
boundaries. Of course there are numerous structural and political reasons
that lead women to move, or to being moved, into the gigantic Fordism of
service of the global sex industry. But there is no simple moral
distinction to be made between trafficked women and those who choose this
venue of survival. The video explores the large grey zone of negotiation
women engage in and the different concepts of prostitution they adhere to.
Remote Sensing aspires to displacing and re-signifying the feminine within
sexual difference and cultural representation, where sexuality is often
presented within the narrow confines of a masculine symbolic.

Satellite visions of globality are producing a sexual economy in which it
has become thinkable to reorganise women geographically on a global sca.e
The use of imagery generated by geographic information systems (GIS) opens
a fundamental critique of Western thinking. Satellite images propose an
abstract and highly accurate view of the world from the top down. The
evaluation and interpretation of the millions of geospacial data collected
by the satellites currently in the orbit are based on binary computer
languages. Through this lens, the world may seem graspable, controllable
and easy to categorise. Yet capitalism creates social as well as material
landscapes which are only comprehensible in their complex interrelation.
Remote Sensing fills in missing geographic data which offer a gendered and
relational view on the global flows of humans.

Ursula Biemann is an artist and videomaker focusing on gender
and globalisation issues in economy, media and the urban space.
