SEAFair 2002
Skopje Electronic Arts Fair

Cultural Transformation
Consciousness and New Technologies

14 December 2002 - 13 January 2003


Location: Skopje Museum of Contemporary Arts - MoCA

Organizer: Contemporary Art Center Skopje

Curator: Melentie PANDILOVSKI


Supported by: Foundation Open Society Institute Macedonia, PROHELVETIA
Arts Council of Switzerland, Goethe Institute Belgrade

The project SEAFair 2002 Cultural Transformation - Consciousness and New
Technologies is envisioned to bring together culture theoreticians,
practitioners of new media, philosophers, consciousness experts,
neuroscientists, artists and sociologists, in a constructive dialogue. We
expect the project to produce an open atmosphere for critical discourse,
and an on-going debate regarding the raised issues. The idea of this sixth
edition of SEAFair is to investigate the cultural transformation in the
beginning of the 21st century by critically examining in an overall
platform the evolution of consciousness, society, networks, and new media.
The study of consciousness is now considered to be one of the top themes
in artistic and cultural circles especially because current research of
broad fields in a cultural and a social sense may assist us in the
visualizing of our future.

The main theme of the Symposium will be CULTURE AND CONSCIOUSNESS. Themes
such as the influence of techno-scientific change upon society, the study
of consciousness, the study of the mind, etc. will be examined.

3. Tapestry - Software

William Ross, Victoria Ward (uk)
Tapestry

Tapestry ist ein Onlinesystem, das verschiedene, von den Benutzern
bereitgestellte Medienformate zu stets neuen Geschichten verwebt.
Jeder darf mitmachen, mitdiskutieren und - eines Tages - die
Verantwortung uebernehmen fuer einen Teil des Gewebes.  Der
urspruengliche Sinn des Projekts lag darin, ein effektives Mittel zur
Sammlung und Praesentation von Augenzeugen-Berichten zu schaffen. Das
System wird von unterschiedlichen Sites benutzt, die Beweise zu
Menschenrechtsverletzungen, zum Treibhaus-Effekt oder aehnlichen
medien-unfreundlichen Themen sammeln. - Im Anschluss an den Workshop
folgt im transmediale salon eine Praesentation der Tapestry-Site
wastun.org mit Florian Schneider, The Yesmen, uva.

Will Ross' Portfolio erstreckt sich ueber die Stellung eines
Sozialbeauftragten bei der British Telecom bis zum eindeutig
unbeauftragten mcspotlight.org.

Victoria Ward arbeitet fuer Sparknow, eine kleine und respektlose 
Beratungsfirma fuer Wissensmanagement, die sowohl im privaten als 
auch im freiwilligen und im oeffentlichen Sektor aktiv ist.

5. Preservation of Video Tapes

Torben Soeborg (dk)
Danish Video Art Data Bank

Museen fuer zeitgenoessische Kunst sammeln in zunehmendem Masse
Installationen, die unterschiedliche Medien verwenden. Diese
Sammlungsgegenstaende sind von erheblichen Problemen betroffen.
Welche Aspekte spielen bei der Konservierung und Ausstellung von
Multimedia-Installationen eine Rolle? Was sind die Kriterien fuer
Erhalt und Re-Installation der Arbeiten? Wird immer mehr technisches
Wissen erforderlich sein, um die Praesentation dieser Installationen
auch zukuenftig zu gewaehrleisten? Ohne eine Loesung werden eine
Reihe dieser Werke auf lange Sicht verloren gehen.

Video- und Grafikkuenstler Torben Soeborg von der Danish Video Art
Data Bank untersucht die Probleme die bei der Bewahrung von
immateriellen, unbestaendigen Medien und insbesondere bei der
Konservierung von Arbeiten auf aelteren Videocassetten auftreten. Er
macht Vorschlaege fuer "passive" und "aktive" Methoden, und stellt
praktikable Verfahren zur Diskussion.

6. Wireless Networks

Lars Aronsson (se)
Community Wireless Networking

Der Zugang zum Internet in Bueros, Schulen und oeffentlichen Plaetzen
wird in Zukunft zunehmend ueber drahtlose Funktechnologien
stattfinden. Waehrend der Zugang zum Internet eine immer wichtigere
Rolle im taeglichen kulturellen und wirtschaftlichen Leben einnimmt,
versuchen internationale Initiativen diese neuen
Kommunikationstechnologien fuer lokale Communities nutzbar zu machen.
Elektrosmog, eine Online-Diskussionsgruppe aus Stockholm, ist eine
der wichtigsten dieser neuen Organisationen, die sich mit dem
oeffentlichen Internetzugang ueber Funktechnologie auseinandersetzen.
Lars Aronsson wird in seinem Vortrag auf die Thematik eingehen und im
Anschluss die kulturelle und soziale Bedeutung dieser neuen
Funktechnologien zur Diskussion stellen.

Lars Aronsson ist Computerwissenschaftler und Programmierer. Im Jahr
2000 gruendete er Elektrosmog.

7. Ogg/Vorbis and Open Media Standards

Adam Hyde (gb)
Ogg/Vorbis and Open Media Standards

Ogg/Vorbis ist ein neuer, offener Medienstandard fuer
Audiokompression, der entwickelt wurde, um vorhandene proprietaere
und patentierte Formate zu ersetzen. Vorbis ist frei, offen und
unpatentiert, dadurch unterscheidet es sich von bestehenden Formaten.
Vorbis wurde als Teil des Ogg Projektes entwickelt. Ogg/Vorbis ist
Teil einer groesseren Initiative, die im Moment ein vollwertiges,
offenes Multimedia-System entwickelt. Dieser Workshop gibt eine
Einfuehrung in das Format und behandelt sowohl die technischen
Spezifikationen (Datenkompression, Codierung/Decodierung,
Hoervergleiche mit konkurrierenden Formaten) als auch die
philosophischen und rechtlichen Fragen, mit denen sich offene
Medienformate und Initiativen auseinandersetzen.

Adam Hyde ist Medienkuenstler und Musiker. Sein besonderes Interesse
gilt Streaming Media im Bild- und Audiobereich. www.radioqualia.net

3. Tapestry - Software

William Ross, Victoria Ward (uk)
Tapestry

Tapestry is a collaborative storytelling system: it weaves a compound
narrative out of the disparate fragments entered by its inhabitants,
splicing and combining narrative steps to build a single navigable
mass of story. Anyone is free to contribute, discuss and one day take
responsibility for part of the weave. The original purpose of the
project was to find an effective way of gathering and presenting
eyewitness testimony. How to gather firsthand material from remote
and how to make that material engaging, informative and useful to
both the researcher and the casual passer-by without relying on
editorial expertise. The system is used by several sites to gather
and discuss evidence of human rights violations, climate change and
other media-unfriendly issues. - The workshop will be followed by a
presentation of the Tapestry-powered website wastun.org with Florian
Schneider, The Yesmen, and others, in the transmediale salon.

Will Ross has a portfolio that stretches from British Telecom's
corporate social responsibility unit to the decidedly anticorporate
mcspotlight.org.

Victoria Ward is with Sparknow, a small and irreverent Knowledge 
Management consultancy that mixes corporate, voluntary and public 
sector work.

Torben Soeborg (dk)
Danish Video Art Data Bank

More and more museums for contemporary art are collecting
installations in which various media are used. These acquisitions are
surrounded by considerable problems. Which aspects play a role in the
conservation and re-installation of multi media installations? What
are the criteria for preservation and re-installation? Is there a
need for more technical know-how to ensure that these installations
can also be presented in the future? How can installations be
registered and documented? Without solutions, a number of these works
will, in the long term, have to be given up as lost.

Video and graphic artist Torben Soeborg of the Danish Video Art Data
Bank examines the problems with preserving the immaterial variable
media and more specific the conservation of works on old video tapes.
He put forward proposals for both "passive" and active" actions and
questions for discussion about what can be done? - and what should be
done?

Workshop: Preservation of Video Tapes
Monday 3 February 2003 / 16.00 - 20.00 Uhr, K1

6. Wireless Networks

Lars Aronsson (se)
Community Wireless Networking

There is a now widespread belief that access to the Internet
increasingly will use wireless technology in homes, offices, schools,
and public spaces. As access to the Internet becomes an increasingly
important part of our daily cultural, economic and social lives,
international initiatives are arising that aim to put these new
communication technologies in the hands of local communities.
Elektrosmog, an online discussion group based in Stockholm, is one of
the most important of these new organizations dedicated to public,
wireless Internet access.

Lars Aronsson will give a lecture and lead a discussion on the
cultural and social implications of these new wireless technologies
as well as provide an overview of current Swedish projects.

Lars Aronsson is computer scientist and programmer. He founded
Elektrosmog in 2000. www.elektrosmog.nu

Workshop: Wireless Networks
Tuesday 4 February 2003 / 14.00 - 19.00 hrs, K3

7. Ogg/Vorbis and Open Media Standards

Adam Hyde (nz/nl/gb)
Ogg/Vorbis and Open Media Standards

OggVorbis is a new open standard audio compression format designed to
replace existing proprietary, patented formats. Vorbis is different
from existing proprietary formats in that it is completely free, open
and unpatented. Developed as part of the Ogg project, OggVorbis is
part of a larger initiative currently being undertaken to create a
fully open multimedia system. This workshop will introduce the
format, focusing on both technical specifics (compression,
encoding/decoding, listening comparisons between competing formats)
as well as the philosophical and legal issues underpinning open media
standards and initiatives.

Adam Hyde is a new media artist and musician. He has a special
interest in streaming media, in both visual and audio contexts.

Subject: 16. Stuttgarter Filmwinter - online

English version see below
______________

Liebe FreundInnen des Filmwinters, es ist kurz vor Weihnachten und schon
bald steht die 16. Ausgabe des Stuttgarter Filmwinter - Festival for
Expanded Media - ins Haus. Ab dem 9. Januar geht es schon mit einigen Warm
Up-Veranstaltungen los. Vom 16.-19. Januar 2003 findet dann das Festival im
Filmhaus Stuttgart und im Ex-IKEA statt.

Aus 1300 Einreichungen in den Bereichen Kurzfilm und -video,
Medieninstallationen, CD-ROM und Internet haben die Vorauswahlkommissionen
die spannendsten Arbeiten ausgewählt. Im Rahmenprogramm gibt eine Werkschau
mit Videos von Erwin Wurm zu sehen. Unter dem Schlagwort "Erdung" haben wir
uns mit dem "neuen Heimatgefühl in der Medienkunst" auseinandergesetzt. Gibt
es ein Korrektiv auf Mobilisierung, Flexibilisierung und Globalisierung,
ohne in das traditionelle Werteschema zurückzufallen, das mit Begriffen wie
"Wurzel" oder "Heimat" verknüpft ist? Das Programm "Gegenspieler"
beschäftigt sich mit "Machinimas" und subversiven Erzählformen in
Computerspielen.

Weitere Informationen zu Programm und Gästen, Eintrittspreisen und
Veranstaltungsorten findet Ihr auf unserer Website http://www.filmwinter.de

Cheers, Wanda

Dear friends of the Stuttgart Filmwinter, just before x-mas, I want to
announce the upcoming 16th Stuttgart Filmwinter - Festival for Expanded
Media. The event starts with a Warm Up from January 9 on with various
exhibitions and programmes. The festival itself takes place from January
16-19 at the Stuttgart Filmhaus and the Ex-IKEA (former IKEA-building).

>From 1300 submissions in the field von short film and video, media
installation, CD-ROM and Internet the selection committees have selected the
outstanding works. In the special programmes we feature a video
retrospective of Erwin Wurm. Under the catchwork "Erdung" (Grounding) we
have compiled works and organized lectures which deals with the "new feeling
of attachment to one's home town". Which roles inhere geographical and
emotional places in today's media society? Is there a corrective to the
trends of mobilization, flexploitation, and globalization? And does this
mean we are returning to traditional value systems, implying expressions
such as "home" and "roots"? The programme "Gegenspieler" (counterplots)
deals with "Machinimas" and subversive narration in computer games.

You find all relevant information on programme and guests, admission and
venues on our web site http://www.filmwinter.de

Cheers, Wanda

INTRO:

  According to our records, Share first convened in early summer
  2001.  273 hours of open jam, 78 hours of featured sets, and 525 GB
  of audio archives later, we're still going strong with newly extended
  hours (5pm until 1am or later most Sundays), new participants, and
  great jams and featured sets each week.

  hosted by lloop + geoffGDAM + newclueless
  encouraged by o.blaat

  See http://share.dj for full description, schedule, faq, photos, 
  directions, and live internet broadcast while Share is in session.

SUNDAYS:

* Open Video Jam  5pm to close

  video gear and VGA / RBG / S-Video / Composite cables to join in.  We 
  have VGA cables available for laptop users.

  Multi-user audio jam on a great sound system, up to three seperate rooms.
  Bring portable electronics and matched 1/4" cables to join.

* Featured Set(s)  8pm

  break.

* Notice
  Please note that on 29 December we will close at 9:30pm.  Other nights
  we are open until 1am or later.

YEAR'S END 2002 AT SHARE:
  
* 22 December - Mike Berk
  Throwing it all away and beginning again, mike will make an 
  exploratory venture through the sounds of his youth. No clicks, 
  no pops, no granulators, no sequencing. As for the computer...well?

* 29 December - Deepfatfried  [EARLY CLOSE AT 9:30pm]
  With a sound that blends edgy electronics, ghetto-tech basslines, 
  house thump, and breakbeat riddims, California-based Deepfatfried 
  has been melting consumer electronics since 1996. DFF is in New York 
  to celebrate an upcoming CD release on Diet Strychnine Records. The 
  duo will be bringing an improvised live laptop set.

* 5 January  - osso bucco   and   Heartworm
  osso bucco is Nyc born, Florida bred and Barcelona based sonic artist 
  gregg kowalsky's solo project. After several years of manipulating sounds 
  inside his laptop, osso bucco has brought his music to the people with 
  performances at the Sonar Festival and Wrong Festival in Barcelona and 
  the Nursery Summer Festival in Stockholm. His music weaves back and forth 
  between ambient noise and digital harmony, which appears to be the focus 
  of the compositions. The textures he creates from overlapping repetitive, 
  DSP clicks and processed layers of sounds provide the backdrop to the 
  subtle melodies. In December, one of his tracks will appear on the Wrong 
  Festival Compilation cd with Hrvatski, Dj Rupture and Once11. For more 
  info and mp3s go to www.nosordo.com/ossobucco and www.observatoryonline.org

  nyC based brandon taylor (akA the heartworm) creates severely fractured
  glitch-core nonsense on severely fractured laptop, combining skewed and
  disected rythms, visceral textures, and stuttering melodies.  the heartworm
  co-hosts the weekly "opiate" ambient party at {*}penair (along with
  aaron spectre and unit), is a founder of the ever ominous slum.org music
  collective and has recorded and performed music for web, film and artist
  installation work.  he has released recordings for various imprints
  (DHR, aklass records, slum.org.)
