Subject: Re: The Unmarked Grave of History from the Unmade Bed of Culture

 I am completing and editing my unplanned 
book The Unmarked Grave of History from the 
 Unmade Bed of Culture about the fascist 
 turn in culture pivoting on (but not 
 caused by) the events in NYC and Washington 
 of last September.
 The work ties my interventions in several 
 lists into an account of 'the tragedy of 
 the commons/tragedy of capital'.
 I am in need of funding to help me complete 
this editing and writing.
 Please advise if you can, I have publishers 
 in mind.

From: "The Disinformation Company" <books {AT} disinfo.com>
Subject: New Book Reveals Other Shooters at Columbine

“Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris weren’t the only gunmen,” says Russ Kick,
editor of ‘Everything You Know Is Wrong: The Disinformation Guide to
Secrets and Lies’ (The Disinformation Company, June 2002)

On April 20, 1999, the worst school shooting in American history occurred
at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. In the end, twelve
students, one teacher, and two gunmen lay dead. Though early news reports
quoted eyewitnesses talking about more than two gunmen, we were soon told
that the massacre was perpetrated by only two individuals--students Eric
Harris and Dylan Klebold.

In November of 2000, Jefferson County (Colorado) released 11,000 pages of
raw documents relating to the investigation. The release was covered by
the media, which noted that the documents contained new insights into the
killers’ motivations, the deaths of specific students, and other aspects
of the tragedy. However, the press scrupulously ignored the amazing number
of reports from eyewitnesses who saw people other than Harris and Klebold
taking part.

Russ Kick’s article “Witnesses to a Massacre: Other Participants at
Columbine”--available only in the book Everything You Know Is
Wrong--breaks the silence. It contains verbatim extracts from the written
statements and police interviews of 45 students and faculty whose accounts
throw into question the official version of events. Among the revelations:

* Several students in the cafeteria and on the soccer field saw a young
man dressed in jeans and a white T-shirt throwing bombs during the attack.
(Harris and Klebold were dressed in black trenchcoats and black pants.)

* Five students identified by name another student as being a perpetrator.
One even made eye contact with him while he was shooting.
* Four students who were barricaded in a science room offered stunningly
similar descriptions of a gunman they saw through the small window of the
door. He was in his mid-twenties to early thirties, short, stocky, and
muscular, with cropped hair that was either blonde or black with blonde
tips. One student even provided a sketch of this unknown man (which is
published for the first time in Everything You Know Is Wrong).

* Other students reported seeing a suspect wearing camouflage pants. One
witness saw this person shoot teacher David Sanders, who died a few hours

* Several students, a teacher, and a coach reported the presence of a
gunman on the roof of the school.

* Three students heard the shooters referring to one of their accomplices
as “Joe.”

* Several students reported seeing other gunmen, including three shooters
in the cafeteria simultaneously and someone with a gun crouching in the
bushes near the school.

* A teacher and two library staffers reported hearing gunshots between
1:00 PM and 2:00 PM, although Harris and Klebold are officially said to
have killed themselves at 12:08 PM.

* Further eyewitness statements involve a pickup truck slowly circling the
parking lot during the rampage, a student who was arrested at the scene
(whom the authorities have never discussed), the assistant principal
naming “Ned” as a perpetrator, and other pieces of information that don’t
fit into the official story.

“When I first saw these statements, I was stunned,” Kick said. “My
previous book had an article about early media coverage of the Columbine
shooting, so I knew there were many reports of other people taking part.
But reading the raw documents and seeing the details takes it to a whole
new level.”

What about those who question the validity of eyewitness testimony?
“That’s certainly a concern,” Kick replied. “But when you have three or
more eyewitnesses separately describing the same thing, it’s pretty
powerful. For example, there’s amazing consistency among reports of the
bomb-thrower in the white tee-shirt. And several of those kids saw him
causing havoc alongside Harris and Klebold. In other words, they saw three
perpetrators at the same time. That’s quite persuasive.”

Is there any other evidence that more people were involved? “Definitely,”
said Kick. “There was only so much time and so many pages I could devote
to the case, but there’s a lot more.” Such as? “Since turning the article
in, I’ve found even more eyewitness reports indicating more than two
gunmen. Then there are the media reports from April 20 and the days
immediately afterward, which tell a very different story. As far as
physical evidence goes, there are bullets and bullet fragments from the
crime scene that don’t match the guns used by Harris, Klebold, or law
enforcement personnel. Then we have all the evidence that’s being
withheld. The authorities have released the autopsy for Eric Harris but
not for Dylan Klebold. They’ve released the autopsies for two students but
not for the other ten or for the teacher, David Harris. There are missing
ballistics, evidence, and eyewitness reports. There are maps of the crime
scene that have never been released, which have been leaked to me. They
show that, contrary to what we’ve been told, the authorities fired into
the library--where almost all the students were killed--and into
classrooms where, according to the official story, Harris and Klebold
never were. I‘ve posted these maps to my Website, alterNewswire.”

Sounds like they’re hiding something, doesn’t it? “Oh yes,” Kick replied.
“There’s no doubt that they’re refusing to release a lot of material. The
only question is why. And I can only think of two reasons. Either the
authorities haven’t told us what happened that day, or they’re hiding
their inept handling of the situation. Or both. The parents of Daniel
Rohrbough are convinced their son was killed by a cop, not by one of the
gunmen. They’re currently suing to get to the truth. In fact, the parents
of two slain students and one student who survived that day are on record
as saying the authorities are lying about Columbine. I quote them in my

Will we ever find out what really happened? “I wouldn’t bet on it,” Kick
said. “Then again, there are a number of people who are refusing to let
the secrecy and lies stand, so there’s hope yet.”

“Witnesses to a Massacre: Other Participants in Columbine” is available in
“Everything You Know Is Wrong: The Disinformation Guide to Secrets and
Lies”, published by The Disinformation Company <www.disinfo.com>. This book contains over 45 articles that question events, reveal hidden information, and debunk myths. Other contributors include Arianna Huffington, Paul Krassner, William Blum, Naomi Klein, Howard Zinn, Howard Bloom, Noreena Hertz, Thomas Szasz, James Ridgeway, Greg Palast, Kalle Lasn, and others.

Subject: Europa-On the Fly NetSoundPiece by Wolf Kahlen new online

Wolf Kahlen
Europa On the Fly

Needed Flash Player 5 and up

New Europe has a New Anthem. Of course. Beethoven's Ode to Joy in parts. The
building of Europe is a work in progress. So is her anthem, Wolf Kahlen
makes us aware in his recent Net.Sound.Piece EUROPA-ON THE FLY.
By your click, you are interfering into the process, actively coconstructing
the fragile multilingual unity of Europe, and deconstructing at the same
time. You hear the result of your click at instant, as the anthem looses and
gains pieces of the melody, on the fly. As countries join in in harmony or
articulate new influences, others may drop out or raise their voice in
disharmony, the score of the anthem is coming and going by your activity.
Going, falling into pieces in Part One, when the melody opens up holes,
silencies, rather Cagean like, coming, when she assembles the lost notes of
Part One to shape a new sound in Part Two, rather Schoenberg like. You shall
see nothing, as politics may change behind your back, but listen and be
aware, it is your music you hear. And just by chance, which does not exist,
as Kahlen believes. Any user hears two unique anthem variations, nobody ever
will hear the same again for the next 35o years. Join the grand European
union work this way, on the fly.

Jim Campbell (San Francisco, California, United States)
**Representing Simultaneous Images**

**Representing Simultaneous Images** involves creating a series of artworks,
each incorporating multiple video feeds to produce a single dynamic image.
The goal is to explore different ways to display connected streams of
information simultaneously without losing the subtlety contained in the
original streams.

Alan Dunning (Calgary, Alberta, Canada)
**Representations of the Body in Liquid Media Spaces**

Alan Dunning conducts technical and conceptual research into visualizing the
human body's biological output. This output is represented by patterns in
moving liquid surfaces generated by the effect of a magnetic field on a

Beatrice Gibson (Mumbai, India)

Beatrice Gibson investigates the teleworker's disembodied proximity by using
a recording and poetic rearticulation of the teleworker's voice in the
acoustic space of an on-line environment. 

Trevor Gould (Montreal, Quebec, Canada)
**Three Dimensional Blur with Digital Wind and Accessories**

This experimental project focuses on the development of existing
mould-making materials enhanced through digital manipulations in 3-D
printing and through muscle wire manipulations. The project also reflects on
what constitutes a human figure when this figure is reproduced as blurred
movement arrested in 3-D space.

John Klima (Brooklyn, New York, United States)
**Terrain Machine**

**Terrain Machine** is an analogue mechanical device interfaced to a digital
computer, creating a physical representation of the Earth's surface. Relying
on accurate, scientific data sources, this project addresses issues
surrounding the representation and construction of our reality in its
various forms.

Chico MacMurtrie (Brooklyn, New York, United States)
**Skeletal Reflections**

**Skeletal Reflections** is an autonomous humanoid robotic sculpture that
mimics gestures using only the basic structure of the human form, the
skeleton. This machine without a skin represents the significant merger of
sculptural practice with modern machine technology. 

Thomas McIntosh (Montreal, Quebec, Canada)

**Ondulation** explores a synesthetic relationship between air, water, sound
and light. The work investigates a set of physical phenomena at the point
where they overlap. The aim is to produce an audiovisual performance and a
stand-alone installation.

David Rokeby (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
Common sense gathering and discursive structure for **The Giver of Names**

This project builds on the research involved in **The Giver of Names**
(1998). First, the system is provided with unsupervised ways to accumulate a
sort of common sense through reading electronic texts. Then, an open
mechanism is developed to generate discursive structure so that the system
can construct paragraphs with some sort of coherent trajectory of ideas.

RTMark (Loudonville, New York, United States)
**CORPSE** (Corporate Organism Replication and Patterning in a Simulated

RTMark will create a Web-based, single- and multi-player computer game that
treats corporations as organisms. Called **CORPSE**, the game engages
players in a generative discourse about the consequences of allowing
corporations to exist with minimal regulations. As well, the game serves as
a home laboratory for exploring the legal conditions that might lead to
entirely different emergent behaviour.

Thecla Schiphorst and Susan Kozel (Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada)
**whisper**: wearable body architectures

**whisper**, a participatory installation, uses wearable computers and
wireless computer communication, builds on physical practices such as dance
improvisation, and manifests cultural and scientific theories of embodiment.

Bill Seaman and Ingrid Verbauwhede (Los Angeles, California, United States)
**The Poly-sensing Environment** (toward the development of an integrated
distributed technology exploring poetic/informational grammars of attention
and functionality)

This interdisciplinary project seeks to develop research aimed at creating a
poetic/informational interactive IT system that relies on multi-modal
sensory devices. These devices collaborate in a distributed fashion and are
linked to a dynamic virtual imaging environment and the Internet. 

Geoffrey Smedley (Gibsons, British Columbia, Canada)
**Descartes' Clown: the Roulette**

**Descartes' Clown: the Roulette** is a sculptural installation in the mode
of the absurd. Like Descartes' celebrated dream that lies at the foundation
of modern science, the project is drawn from the unconscious, from dream
fragments of great acuity.

Stealth Group (Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and Rotterdam, the Netherlands)
**3/4 process + 1/4 matter**

The foundation is supporting the development of **3/4 process + 1/4
matter**, a responsive design procedure in the boundary zone between fields
of digital/media technologies and architecture.

Igor Vamos (Troy, New York, United States)

**Grounded** will be a location-triggered random-access documentary that
reveals histories of abandonment and conflict in a remote desert town.
Viewers will experience this documentary on site, like a walking tour. The
project involves developing a Web browser plug.

Steina Vasulka (Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States)
**Seven Spheres** (working title)

After completing **Of the North**, the artist is now pursuing her obsession
with round images by planning a large project with spherical images
projected onto round, translucent screens.

Hello everyone

Been quite of late but have some new and small work featured here under

also been lots of changes to the work "For those who fear intimacy / for 
those who fear loneliness", due to 'freedom to surf' (where the site was

Announcement of RSG's Release of
CarnivorePE "Personal Edition" Data Detection Tool

WASHINGTON, DC - The US Department of Art & Technology, in 
conjunction with Radical Software Group (RSG) and the Federal Bureau 
of Investigation (FBI), is announcing today the availability of the 
CarnivorePE "Personal Edition" detection tool to perform packet 
sniffing on a local area network. CarnivorePE was created by RSG, an 
artist-collective that has been producing client applications since 
last year that openly taps networks for aesthetic, social and 
politically-motivated purposes. CarnivorePE is inspired by DCS1000 
(known by its nickname "Carnivore"), software used by the FBI to 
perform electronic wiretaps. The tool is available at: 

CarnivorePE uses personal computers to transmit data streams to one 
or more client systems. Pioneering a new platform for surveillance 
systems, the detection tool allows users to examine networks to 
identify the presence of specific data types and thereby unleash 
their computers to conduct the musicalization of network traffic, 
deconstruct media, trigger words, and investigate streaming bits to 
expose their true content-information.

Last year, RSG made available the first edition of the Carnivore tool 
that surpassed other network sniffing techniques, including Etherpeek 
and SurfWatch. This current release updates the tool to include the 
ability to detect sustainable encounters and designable futures. 
CarnivorePE greatly improves on the original FBI DCS1000 wiretapping 
software, openly monitoring Web communications as well as serving 
data to any recipient for real-time analysis.

RSG also continues to work aggressively with other government 
agencies and industry to provide timely and effective warnings and 
countermeasures to the increasingly damaging threats posed to the 
U.S. cyber infrastructure.

As with earlier RSG exploits, there is currently no way for the 
technology industry to contain this "open source" project. Rather, 
development depends on a community-wide effort to detect data 
streams, thereby increasing the number of computers that can be used 
to reshape the way individual and organizations collaborate and share 
information. For that reason, RSG strongly encourages widespread use 
of its detection tool, as artist-generated, data-revealing client 
applications increasingly become available - a mega-media portal 
through the blending of mediums.

Any anti-CarnivorePE related activity should be reported to the RSG 
Watch and Warning Unit, or computer emergency response support 
organizations, as appropriate. RSG can be reached at (+1 917 514 
5815), or by e-mail at rsg {AT} rhizome.org


Carnivore is created by RSG, an all-star collective of computer 
artists hand selected from cities around the world. Carnivore is 
their first public release.

The US Department of Art and Technology is the principal conduit for 
facilitating the artist's need to extend aesthetic inquiry into the 
broader culture where ideas become real action. It also serves the 
psychological and spiritual well-being of all Americans by supporting 
cultural efforts that provide immunity from the extension of new 
media technologies into the social sphere.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) prides itself on obedience 
to the Constitution of the United States; surveils the identity of 
those they protect; and upholds values that must be vigorously

YAWN 38: "Assessing the Art Strike" by Stewart Home

The Complete YAWN

Plagiarism: Crime of the Millennium

Description: Back from the Art Strike 1990-1993. This issue marks the 
return of the Photostatic title after a three-year absence in support 
of a project of the Neoists called Art Strike 1990-1993. An 
explanation of the reasons behind this collective action would be too 
long to go into here. To find out more, visit the YAWN site 
(http://yawn.detritus.net/), a nearly exhaustive repository of Art 
Strike material.

The Art Strike had a forceful impact on the Photostatic project. Up 
until 1989, Photostatic was a regularly-appearing periodical with a 
'Retrofuturism' section. The force of the Art Strike made Photostatic 
splinter into a bewildering array of related titles. These include:

     * Photostatic Magazine and Retrofuturism (http://psrf.detritus.net/)
     * YAWN: Sporadic Critique of Culture  (http://yawn.detritus.net/)
     * Bulletin of the Copyright Violation Squad (http://cvs.detritus.net/)
     * The Expatriot (http://xp.detritus.net/)

All titles fit into the same continuum of pagination. Therefore all 
are recognized as a part of this site's purview, and therefore 
accessible from it. These additional titles are treated here as 
supplemental materials, and can be accessed through the many 
plus-sign (+) anchors scattered throughout the site.

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as a 
repository for a complete collection of Photostatic Magazine, 
Retrofuturism, and Psrf, in electronic form. We are posting issues in 
PDF format, at more or less regular intervals, in reverse 
chronological order to form a mirror image in time of the original 
series. When the first issue, dating from 1983, is finally posted in 
several year's time, then this electronic archive will be complete.
