Subject: GLOBAL INSIGHTS 4 - festival and video magazine ( call for submissions )

ATTENTION: independent activist video makers! 


accessnews {AT} skatv.org.au 

                 ** calling for submissions from video activists ** 

                 GLOBAL INSIGHTS 4 - festival and video magazine 

                 GLOBAL INSIGHTS, Australia's most inspiring screen event,
is set to return for 2001. 

                 SKA TV is now calling for submissions from video activists.

                 Whether it's independent media collectives pulling together
footage from 30 camcorders at a giant action against the World Bank, a
protester filming her comrade destroy the control room of a military
helicopter, or media satirists creating 'anti-ads' to send up the corporate
media's banality and bias, Global Insights has showcased the best of
activist video from around the world for the last four years. 

                 Since GLOBAL INSIGHTS 3, the world has seen an amazing
explosion of new media activism - as well as the growing interest from
mainstream television outlets in this kind of material. 

                 Is it an attempt to reinvigorate a sterile and artificial
tv culture, or just because it's cheap to purchase? 

Just file it under 'reality tv'... 

Meanwhile GLOBAL INSIGHTS remains one of the few means of screening and
distributing this kind of material. 

                 GLOBAL INSIGHTS has two arms - a compilation of short video
activist works which is screened in Melbourne, and a videomagazine which is
distributed through grass-roots networks, festivals and community
broadcasters around the world. 

Global Insights 3 was seen in places as diverse as Seoul and Antarctica. 

Submissions should be complete edited pieces of less than 12 minutes
duration, or able to be cut down to less than 12 minutes. 

The deadline is the end of September 2001. 

Contact us about video formats and other questions. 

We have a small budget to cover costs in getting your material to us. 

                 All contributors will receive a copy Global Insights 4. 

                 Global Insights (and in fact SKA TV) is a %100 volunteer
production made by 
                 activists and media mischief makers.

cast01 / Living in Mixed Realities
Conference on Communication of Art, Science and Technology

The Fraunhofer Institute Media Communication asks for participation in
the conference cast01 "Living in Mixed Realities". cast01 will take
place from the 21st to 22nd September 2001 at Schloss Birlinghoven,
Sankt Augustin (near Bonn), Germany  under the patronage of Edelgard
Bulmahn, German Federal Minister for Education and Research. The
conference addresses everybody working on the interface of art, culture,
new technologies and media sciences.

The conference is to discuss the following questions: What does it mean
to live, play and work in a world shaped and perceived through digital
media, networks and architectures of real and virtual space? How can the
development of complex communication spaces, life environments and
economic models be designed as an interplay of technological, social and
artistic forces?

Unlike conventional concepts of virtual realities mixed reality
architectures combine social and cultural action forms in the real space
with processes in virtual environments. Network structures enable new
forms of cooperation and support generation and detection of new
information in media knowledge spaces.

400 artists and scientists submitted projects on new technologies and
concepts for artistic productions. An international jury will select the
most interesting projects. During the conference these projects will be
presented in seven thematic blocks. Both new media art projects and
innovative research projects of the EU program Information Society
Technologies (IST) will be among these presentations. Famous scientists
and artists from all over the world will present papers and lead through
the presentation of the projects. These include Roy Ascott, Natalie
Jeremijenko, Bill Buxton and Jill Scott.

Two special events will enrich the conference program.
>netzspannung.org<, the media lab on the Internet will go online.
>digital sparks< will give awards to three outstanding  German student
projects in the fields of media art and design as well as media

cast01 is organized by the MARS Exploratory Media Lab  of the Fraunhofer
Institute Media Communication (former GMD institute)*. The conference is
funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (bmb+f)
and the European Commission.

netzspannung spreads networks

netzspannung.org, the media lab on the Internet, will be opened! On the
occasion of the conference cast01/ Living in Mixed Realities taking
place on the 21st September 2001 at Schloss Birlinghoven, Sankt Augustin
(near Bonn), netzspannung.org will go online.

The Internet platform for media staging, artistic production and
inter-media research is being developed by the MARS Exploratory
Medialab. Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss from the Fraunhofer
Institute Media Communication are the leaders of the project which is
funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The
activities aim at establishing a competence center for media art and
media technology whose information repository about todayís digital
culture can be used by artists, curators, scientists, producers and

Knowledge discovery interfaces enable discovery and visualization of
media works. The distributed system architecture, online workspaces and
tools that are extensible on open source basis such as the mixed reality
stage (eMuse) or interactive Internet television (i2TV) support digital
production and experiments in networked media spaces.

The first knowledge pools available on the platform are the
netzspannung.org/journal, the conference cast01/ Living in Mixed
Realities and digital sparks, a cartography of student media projects at
German-speaking universities. A parallel activity interconnects various
archives to create a collaborative knowledge space.

Though targeted to experts, netzpsnanung.org also allows the
participation of the interested public in the design and exploration of
complex communication spaces within artistic, social and technological

Mika Kurosawa Solo Dance "The Rose Man"2001 Production
August9th-12th ,at Terpsichore,Nakano, Tokyo.

With the sound like modem and virtual data communication, her real
half-naked body moved around the stage.
The body was lighted up in several ways.

Mika Kurosawa,konwn as a comtemporary dancer, danced with half-naked-fashion.
Her stage reminds me of the stages of Duncan and Graham.
In spite of erotic performance, the impression was fresh and neat.
At the beginning of 20th century,"naked body" appeared in art movements in 
the past,for example, german expressionism,Bauhaus, Dada,etc.
In Tokyo, postmodern style and one of biggest cities in Asia, now is the 
age of decadance. At the beginning of new century, there are still some hope.
By the fall of Japanese economy and politics, Tokyo is in the state of chaos.
Her body and dance can show erotic chaos with ray of light.
Today's stage symolized "Tokyo" these days.

			Art on the Net 2001
		"Post-Cagian Interactive Sound"

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since 1995, Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts, Tokyo (MCMOGATK), 
has been sponsoring the world's first Internet art and web contents 
open competition, "Art on the Net," exploring the potentials of the 
Internet as a medium of art. Twenty countries were represented in 
the "Art on the Net 2000 -- Parody,"  and the prizes went to Russian 
and German artists. In the past six years since its first show, 
"Art on the Net 1995," over 500 entries have been submitted and artists
from 40 countries have participated. Net.art entries in each show 
reflected the cutting-edge technology of that time. We believe it 
has been presenting a completely new status of art created at the 
the crossroads of art history, technology and the society. 

The theme of the 7th "Art on the Net 2001" is "Post-Cagian Interactive 
Sounds." We again are open to any entries that are experimental, that 
have power to turn around the conventional concepts of art. Acceptance 
of the entries, jurying, and exibition are all done on the Internet. 
The DEADLINE for the entry is August 30, 2001. Winners are scheduled 
to be announced on November 25, the last day of a live event sponsored 
by MCMOGATK, "Interactive  Sounds" held between November 23 and 25. 

The jurors are;

#Kowaga Tetsuo (Japan) #Director for the "Art on the Net"

Q:What if no one bids for the CN_ZERO images via ebay.com?
(http://www.whitney.org/artport) Will this constitute some type of failure?
Will restlessculture still betray itself?
A:Maybe it will be a testament to faith in the gallery system as the
continued brokers of choice for art and taste.  Maybe it will just result in
the lack of pocket change for me thus confirming that restlessculture is
still a little shy of being handed over to pure profitability.  Thus far I
think it is interesting to consider these ebay.com auctions as sacrificial
rituals that "purify" restlessculture and insure its continued vitality and
movement, i.e. life outside immediate and easy commodification.

Q:How do you expect to change anything using images like the following?

A:My work functions as a "web" or text of many divergent threads and links.
To isolate and attempt a reading of a singular component of my work outside
the hyper-weave of context (made possible by the net itself) is the only
real method one could employ toward completely mis-understanding my work.  I
do not work with the intention of changing anything.  My work is
creative-play.  I do not expect any stark, obvious, or otherwise
"revolutionary" exchange for this work.  I am a radical, a cultural
transgressive, an artist simply because I commit my life toward the gesture
of imagining anything other than what is prescribed for us through popular
western ideology.  My work is to keep imagination alive through any network
into which I may gain access, e.g.  streets, galleries, institutions,
internet, video, etc. Any platform for dissemination of art/information.

Q:I thought you were a feminist... what is with all these fragmented bodies
and heads rendered faceless by bright lights?

A:This is not decision based on gender (the images in question are not even
gender specific) but moreover a decision informed by 1st world class.  All
images of American artists, cultural transgressives and/or individuals and
friends who dedicate their lives toward creative work under the auspices of
this country must be rendered as "overexposed" for the duration of Conductor
Number Zero.  This is how I choose to represent the disregard and
impossibility of the artist amidst the spectacle of accelerated capitalism.

Q:Themes of overt, sexual sleaziness in your work do nothing for me.

A:Components of my work can function as carriers for pleasure or agents of
seduction or repulsion (depending on the viewers openess and sincerity
toward themselves) but to read my work only as such and to assume it is
there soley for one's guilty consumption is a great reduction and a less
than rigorous reading.

Q:Are you the anti-christ?

A:No.  That would be a simple game of which the binary structure is already
too widely known and even today still oftentimes blindly accepted and
employed.  At this time in history I think the job of anti-christ would very
boring and un-inspired work.

Q:Are you doing all this for self-recognition?

A:My work is motivated by self-recognition or re-cognizance, a returning to
ones-self.  I consider creative work to be a series of self-re-introductions
and re-evaluations.  A lifetime in update,
(ftp://www.restlessculture.net/pub/LifetimeInUpdate4.0.mp3) re-vision; to
see again.  An artist cannot work outside the obvious shipwreck of religion
and morality without constant assessment of position and situation.  These
self-surveys constitute the bases of ethics.  Every moment of schizophrenia
(decision) that arises in my working process are likewise moments of ethical

Subject: Electronic Cafe Cocktail Benefit 8/14

Hi all:
Next Tuesday 8/14, some friends are thorowing a special SIGGRAPH event to
benefit Electronic Cafe International in Santa Monica from 6:30-8:30 (which
should give you plenty of time to make it for the Courses Reception.) Kit
and Sherrie will be showing some of their "greatest" hits and for those who
have never been there, ECafe is a historical must for anyone working in
telepresence, performance and online community stuff. They are sort of the
Nostradamums of the Internet, having been doing all sorts of wacky
telecollaboration stuff since the 70's, way before you could really "do" any
of that stuff. Kit & Sherrie have done a lot for the electronic arts
community for over two decades, so I think they have really earned and are
deserving of our support. If you can't make it to the benefit, consider
making a donation anyway or sponsoring someone who can't afford to come.

Hope to see you all there,

The Event
The Electronic Cafe International (ECI) was founded by digital arts
pioneers Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz. Known for its role as a
leading multicultural community conducting ground-breaking aesthetic
research, ECI focuses on the exploration of real-time networked
collaborative multimedia environments. Originally a project
developed with MOCA for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival,
ECI's first hybrid computer and multimedia network linked five
culturally diverse community restaurants together for seven weeks,
and made history. After the festival, ECI went global, and grew into
a network of over 40 affiliates worldwide.

Countless other groundbreaking and historically significant projects
using telecollaborative technologies have taken place at the Café
over the past several decades. Now the ECI is immersed in the process
of preserving its archives and earlier works from the last 25 years.
The objective is to create the ECI Online Multimedia Archive and to
make it freely accessible to the public, art students and scholars.
This is a huge undertaking, involving thousands of hours of material,
and media assets of every imaginable kind. The amazing legacy of the
ECI must be preserved. This benefit is the kickoff event for the
fundraising effort for this extraordinary project.

ambitions by fostering useful and positive idea exchange between the

high level attendees and the Morning Circle is gaining a reputation
as an intimate high-end exchange of information and networking.

Digital Commerce Lab
Founded by Ben Mendelson and Jeannine Parker, the mission of the
Digital Commerce Lab is to develop practical applications of creative
theory in commerce, and to produce them through richly collaborative
environments. The current lab project is an invitation-only
accelerator for interactive television. By leveraging the knowledge
from the direct response, interactive marketing and interactive
television industries, business models and best practices for ITV
commerce are rapidly developed and strategically integrated into
concrete, deployable, real-world projects.
