Green Pepper Magazine Online Now and Out Soon!

- - - - Autumn 2002 edition: &#8220;BORDERS&#8221; - - - -

As soon as you ask anyone where they were born, where their parents were 
born, where their sister lives, where their partner is from (...) you will 
hear people&#8217;s history of migration and movement. Our own lives, our own 
histories are the histories of movement, globalisation and new beginnings, 
departures and arrivals. We wanted to draw the threads together to create a 
document which took us from this beginning, this ability to identify with 
movement, to question why, how and who&#8217;s movement is being controlled.

This edition of Green Pepper features discussion from a range of 
perspectives; examining the ways in which anti-trafficking legislation is 
used to control migration of women, a different view on bordercamps, 
globalisation, environment and migration, identity and borders. People from 
around the world have contributed analysis and reports to create a broad and 
engaging edition!

From: "M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture" <mc {AT} media-culture.org.au>
Subject: Announcing issue 5.6 of M/C Journal: 'love'

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - 6 December 2002

                          M/C - Media and Culture
     is proud to present issue six in volume five of the award-winning

                                M/C Journal
                     http://www.media-culture.org.au/

             'love' - Edited by Donna Lee Brien & Helen Yeates

                     "What's Love Got To Do With It?":
      International perspectives on the cultural construction of love

  "Smack habit, love habit - what's the difference? They both can kill
  you." (Helen Garner, Monkey Grip, 1976)

>From tennis scores to computer viruses, love is all around us, but do we
live in an age where "Love is all you need"? In the post-AIDS, post-
September 11 globalised multimedia present, is love an outmoded concept or
more important than ever before? Love imbues media culture. While Lola
runs for love, others die for love, with Moulin Rouge popularising once
again the evergreen "doomed love" syndrome. Love songs dominate the
airwaves, sales of romance novels are booming, and every evening
television presents contemporary negotiations of love, sex and friendship
in fictional forms while Springer and reality TV bring particular versions
of real-life love and desire into everyone's lounge room. Internet dating
is a worldwide phenomenon and online chat rooms are filled with punters
looking for their perfect match. 

But despite this intense engagement, the questions "What is love?" and
"What does it mean?" still seem to obsess the cultural production of
contemporary creative artists as well as cultural critics. A selection of
intriguing, compelling, revealing and sometimes controversial critical and
creative works in this issue of M/C Journal explore the spectrum of what we
understand as love and, of course, sex - the act of love.

Whether you take on love as commodity or emotion, as feeling or
sensation, as intellectual or visceral pursuit, please note that there are
warnings on this Love Issue label. CAUTION: This issue will stimulate your
mind as much as arouse your fantasies.

(1) Tokyo Editors' Diary
===============================================================

Kato Haruyuki ("Studio Voice") vol. 004

Paul SmithI'm attending the opening party of the Paul Smith
ladies' fashion shop on Kotto-Dori, where I meet Paul in his
usual, friendly mood. For our magazine Paul Smith has a particular
meaning, since his company has always been supporting us, on the
editorial side as well as through advertisements. As a fashion
brand they're probably in a previously unexperienced, difficult
situation at the moment. With giant conglomerates buying out small
brands, especially on the business side it's extremely difficult
nowadays to maintain a certain independent spirit. There are in
fact a lot of talented fashion people coming out of England, but
how many of them have managed to set up their own 'maison' and be
successful with their brands? Not only is Paul Smith a brilliant
creator, but he has in fact managed to establish a business that
continues to be independent. If you ask me to name designers of
this rank, there's only one I can think of.

===============================================================
(2) Event Pick of the Week
===============================================================

H20 "Remix" Exhibition

H20 is an up-and-coming design is mainly active in the San
Francisco area, where they are creating dresses, installations,
and working as art directors for magazines etc. This exhibition
focuses on H20's large-sized graphical posters as part of their
latest visual interpretation project "Remix." Besides this there
are printed T-shirts for sale. This event is, by the way, a
traveling exhibition that is produced by the "Shift" online
magazine, and that kicked off in Shift's own "Soso Cafe." Such a
stylish combination of rich web contents, cafe operation and event
production is a thing we at RT should really be working on!

American Filibusters
8:15am - Friday 6 December  2002

Americans shouldn't be so quick to point fingers at al Qaeda, Osama 
bin Laden and Iraq. At least that's according to Robert May of Purdue 
University. He's trying to revive a forgotten component of American 
history, a time before the Civil War, when certain adventurers in the 
country were invading other countries without government support.

These men were greatly feared, much like contemporary terrorists are 
today feared by Americans.

Robert May is author of the book Manifest Destiny's Underworld: 
Filibustering In Antebellum America, which discusses this raw spot in 
US history.

Nakanishi Daisuke ("Little More") vol. 005

November 20

At noon I'm interviewing the up-and-coming designer trio Mint Designs,
followed by a meeting with Fushimi Kyoko, one of the most promising
and reliable stylists around. On my schedule for the night are the
100m tracks of the National Stadium, where a fashion show by 20471120
closes this season's Tokyo Collection. These are exciting days, and to
soothe the neurotic mood that starts creeping up I'm taking a dose of
the just released deluxe edition of John Coltrane's "Love Supreme," an
album I've been in love with since I was a kid. I feel better after
hearing the track where Coltrane is joined by Archie Shepp.

(2) Out of Tokyo
===============================================================

Vol. 52: Barrier-Free Theatre
by Ozaki Tetsuya

I wonder if people think I'm crazy when I ask whether blind people
can watch movies. Well, the answer is, of course they can. Movie
theatre visitors can listen to an extra sound channel with situation
descriptions and stage directions that is transmitted to headphones,
using infrared rays or FM transmitters. The explanations are
synchronized with the visuals, but since they are placed in intervals
of the regular soundtrack, they don't interfere with the dialogues.

(3) Event Pick of the Week
===============================================================

Asia in Transition

This is volume four of an international symposium on art in Asia,
which has been held three times so far in the past ten years.
At a time where the globalisation problem is put in a new light
since 9.11, this event is designed as an opportunity for a new
discussion of the identity of 'Asia.' Participating panelists
include Sakai Naoki, Yoshimi Shunya, and Mori Art Museum director
David Elliott. Together with the "Under Construction" exhibition
that is now being shown at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, this event
is recommended not only to people who are related to art in one way
or another, but to everyone who is concerned about the various
problems Asian countries are facing.

The Leonardo Book Series and MIT Press are pleased to announce the release
of two new books, Uncanny Networks: Dialogues with the Virtual
Intelligentsia by Geert Lovink and Virtual Art: From Illusion to
Immersion by Oliver Grau.


Uncanny Networks: Dialogues with the Virtual Intelligentsia by Geert
Lovink

For Geert Lovink, interviews are imaginative texts that can help to create
global, networked discourses not only among different professions but also
among different cultures and social groups. Conducting interviews online,
over a period of weeks or months, allows the participants to compose
documents of depth and breadth, rather than simply snapshots of timely
references.


The interviews collected in this book are with artists, critics, and
theorists who are intimately involved in building the content, interfaces,
and architectures of new media. The topics discussed include digital
aesthetics, sound art, navigating deep audio space, European media
philosophy, the Internet in Eastern Europe, the mixing of old and new in
India, critical media studies in the Asia-Pacific region, Japanese techno
tribes, hybrid identities, the storage of social movements, theory of the
virtual class, virtual and urban spaces, corporate takeover of the
Internet, and the role of cyberspace in the rise of nongovernmental
organizations.


Interviewees included Norbert Bolz, Paulina Borsook, Luchezar Boyadjiev,
Kuan-Hsing Chen, C=E3lin Dan, Mike Davis, Mark Dery, Kodwo Eshun, Susan
George, Boris Groys, Frank Hartmann, Michael Heim, Dietmar Kamper, Zina
Kaye, Tom Keenan, Arthur Kroker, Bruno Latour, Marita Liulia, Rafael

Virtual Art: From Illusion to Immersion
by Oliver Grau


Although many people view virtual reality as a totally new phenomenon, it
has its foundations in an unrecognized history of immersive images.
Indeed, the search for illusionary visual space can be traced back to
antiquity. In this book Oliver Grau shows how virtual art fits into the
art history of illusion and immersion. He describes the metamorphosis of
the concepts of art and the image and relates those concepts to
interactive art, interface design, agents, telepresence, and image
evolution. Grau retells art history as media history, helping us to
understand the phenomenon of virtual reality beyond the hype.


Grau shows how each epoch used the technical means available to produce
maximum illusion. He discusses frescoes such as those in the Villa dei
Misteri in Pompeii and the gardens of the Villa Livia near Primaporta,
Renaissance and Baroque illusion spaces, and panoramas, which were the
most developed form of illusion achieved through traditional methods of
painting and the mass image medium before film. Through a detailed
analysis of perhaps the most important German panorama, Anton von Werner's
1883 "The Battle of Sedan," Grau shows how immersion produced emotional
responses. He traces immersive cinema through Cinerama, Sensorama,
Expanded Cinema, 3-D, Omnimax and IMAX, and the Head Mounted Display with
its military origins. He also examines those characteristics of virtual
reality that distinguish it from earlier forms of illusionary art. His
analysis draws on the work of contemporary artists and groups ART+COM,
Maurice Benayoun, Charlotte Davies, Monika Fleischmann, Ken Goldberg,
Agnes Hegedues, Eduardo Kac, Knowbotic Research, Laurent Mignonneau,
Michael Naimark, Simon Penny, Daniela Plewe, Paul Sermon, Jeffrey Shaw,
Karl Sims, Christa Sommerer, and Wolfgang Strauss. Grau offers not just a
history of illusionary space but also a theoretical framework for
analyzing its phenomenologies, functions, and strategies throughout
history and into the future.


To order:


The mission of the Leonardo Book Series, published by the MIT Press, is to
publish texts by artists, scientists, researchers and scholars that
present innovative discourse on the convergence of art, science and
technology. Envisioned as a catalyst for enterprise, research and creative
and scholarly experimentation, the book series enables diverse
intellectual communities to explore common grounds of expertise. The
Leonardo Book Series provides for the contextualization of contemporary
practice, ideas and frameworks represented by those working at the
intersection of art and science.

Subject: Actual Positions of French Netart


Press Release
Information de presse (French text below)
*********************

JavaMuseum -
Forum for Internet Technologies in Contemporary Art
www.javamuseum.org
(JAVA= Joint Advanced Virtual Affairs)


JavaMuseum is happy to launch the new show in the framework of - 2nd of
Java series - entitled "Actual Positions of French Netart".

When art is defined as world art, as a form of intercultural communication
without national boarders, when art uses the World Wide Web as a medium
and environment in a global context, is it allowed then to connect art or
this exhibition, in particular, to the aspect of nationality?

Netart coming from France is widely unknown, yet. This has different
reasons. Like in some other countries, this new form of contemporary art
seems also in this country not well accepted yet, which is also underlined
by the fact that only a few institutions of art and higher education exist
mainly focussed on art and New Media, but most relevant seems to be that
different from other forms of contemporary art, language and its various
forms plays an essential role in Netart.

The most accepted and dominating language for global communication, the
New Media and the Internet, represents, however, English.

In this global context, language changed its meaning, its function goes
far beyond of expressing merely national identity, even if is it did not
loose this aspect on a local level.

Under these conditions one might ask: can Netart using language as a tool
for expressing national identity be defined as art or Netart, at all, or
does probably even this use enable new forms of expressing which can be
understood on a non-verbal level also by people who do not speak the
respective national language?

The show "Actual Positions of French Netart" makes it evident, there are a
lot of talented artists who take the challenges and chances the Internet
offers by creating art works which include strong conceptual components
manifested in most individual ways.

Some of them use exclusively their native language, others try a
bi-lingual way, and a third group takes the global aspect of the Internet
and expresses itself in English.

Even if not all works can be understood by a non-francophone, the original
and individual multimedia approach will impress by offering new aspects
and perspectives.

As an ongoing project, the show is based on an open call in Internet.

It will accept also in future at any time submissions of new artists which
are not yet presented in the exhibition, in order to stay most actual and
updated.

Following 25 artists are participating currently:

Gregory Chatonsky, Cendres Lavy, Christophe Bruno, PATRICK-HENRI BURGAUD,
Tamara Lai, Erational, Antoine Schmitt Xavier Malbreil, Thierry Vendé,
jimpunk, Xavier Cahen, Pacale Gustin Emilie Pitoiset, Fred Fenollabbate,

INFORMATION DE PRESSE


JavaMuseum -
Forum sur les Technologies de l'Internet
www.javamuseum.org
(Java=Joint Advanced Virtual Affairs)


JavaMuseum
est très heureux de lancer
sa nouvelle exposition
" Positions actuelles du Netart français".
dans le cadre de la
- - deuxième série de Java:

www.javamuseum.org
ou
www.javamuseum.org/2002/2nd/frenchfeature

   Lorsque l'art se définit en tant qu'art mondial, en tant que forme de
communication interculturelle sans frontières nationales, lorsque l'art
emploie le World Wide Web comme médium ou environnement sans limites,
est-il permis de relier de quelque manière l'art, ou cette exposition
d'art en particulier, à l'aspect de la nationalité?

    Le Netart français est encore largement inconnu en dehors de ses
frontières, et ceci pour différentes raisons: Tout d'abord le Netart n'est
peut-être pas encore bien reçu, ici comme ailleurs. Il n'y a de surcroit
que peu d'écoles ou d'établissements traitant de l«art et des nouveaux
médias. Par ailleurs, et à la différence d'autres formes d'art
contemporain, l'utilisation de la langue et de ses subtilités joue un rôle
essentiel pour le Netart. Dans cette communication globale, la seule
langue admise pour les nouveaux médias et Internet demeure l'anglais.

    Dans ce contexte international, la langue en tant que telle n'a plus
la même portée. elle n'est plus simplement expression d'une identité
nationale, même si cet aspect ne perd bien sûr complètement sa pertinence.

    Le Netart, en utilisant la langue comme repère d'une identité
nationale, correspond-il d'une manière ou d'une autre à a définition de ce
que peut être l'art/le Netart, ou bien cette utilisation spécifique
permet-elle des formes d'expressions pouvant être comprises par d'autres,
par ceux qui ne parlent pas ou ne comprennent pas la langue utilisée?

    Il devient évident que les artistes de talent sont nombreux. Le Netart
français prend des accents fortement conceptuels et chaque artiste se
distingue en tant qu'individualité.  Certains d'entre eux travaillent
uniquement en français, d'autres de manière bilingue, et d'autres encore
utilisent exclusivement l'anglais.

    Même si tous les travaux ne peuvent être compris par un non
francophone, l'approche originale et individuelle peut attirer
l'attention, intéresser, offrir de nouveaux aspects et ouvrir de nouvelles
perspectives.

   L'exposition est un projet continu basé sur un appel ouvert sur
Internet.

Les inscriptions sont possibles à tout moment, pour de nouveaux artistes
désirant se joindre à ce projet .
