Description. "Expand the Network." This heavily graphic issue is,
typically, built around multiple parallel series of visual works, an array
of conceptual threads woven together. Further, the issue has several
featured series, one being a sequence of xerographic collages with text
entitled "Things" by Stephen-Paul Martin; another, a one-per-page list of
Jenny Holzer-inspired slogans by Luke McGuff running under the issue,
appearing in each and every footer. Other remarkable graphic works are
supplied by John Stickney, whose work has been coming into its own in
recent issues (retrospectively speaking), and painter John Rininger,
always able, it seems, of offering something of note; and David Tiffen's
pair of images, seeming vaguely Situationist-inspired to today's eyes.
Pandora's Mailbox also supplies a series of works, a small booklet run in
unabridged sequence and offered up among the other works on these pages.
Italian artist Serse Luigetti continues offering his rectilinear "stamp
collection"-like pages of themed graphics, and mailartist Dazar also
delivers a pithy series of small graphics, seen here for the first time in
their original colors.

Contributors include. Scott Dohring, Ll. Dunn, Luke McGuff, Tom Hibbard,
Pandora's Mailbox, John Stickney, Geof Huth, Mark Pawson, Pascal Uni,
Serse Luigetti, David Tiffen, Thomas Wiloch, John Kelly, Eric Belgum,
Joseph A. Uphoff, Jr., Gareth Branwyn, Christopher Erin, Stephen-Paul
Martin, Crag Hill, Dazar, Miekal And, Mark Rose, Brad Goins, Paul Weinman,
Tim Coats, Bob Grumman, John Rininger, Arturo Giuseppe Fallico, Eric
Heilmann, Thom Metzger, The Tape-beatles

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as an
electronic repository for a complete collection of PhotoStatic Magazine,
PhonoStatic Cassettes, Retrofuturism, and Psrf, (as well as related
titles). Issues are posted as PDF files, at more or less regular
intervals, in reverse chronological order to form a chronological mirror
image 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.

Subject: NerdBoxLinks2003

Some thoughts for 2003... a list of Nerd_Box_Art links.

Mostly 2001 and 2002.  Research for several essays I will probably 
never find time to write.  Things I think people should check out.

It is storming here in L.A.  Lights keep flickering (I love laptop 
battery power.)  No rain (never rain) just wind to knock down trees 
on power lines.  And blow away the smog for the morning.

Cyberactivism
Online Activism in Theory and Practice
Routledge Press, New York, NY

Edited by Martha McCaughey and Michael D. Ayers

Cyberactivism is a timely collection of ssays examining the growing
importance of online activism. The contributors show how online activists
have not only incorporated recent technology as a tool for change, but also
how they have changed the meaning of activism, what community means, and how
they conceive of collective identity and democratic change. Topics addressed
range from the Zapatista movement's use of the web to promote their cause
globally to the establishment of alternative media sources like
indymedia.org to the direct action of "hacktivists" who disrupt commercial
computer networks. Cyberactivism is essential reading for anyone interested
in understanding the impact of the Internet on politics today.

Subject: the >wartime< project online launch

hi nettime-l people

as the American administration, in the space of 24 hours, 
committs a further 62,000 military to an attack on Iraq, the 
online edition of the >wartime< project is now open at 
http://offline.area3.net/wartime

in the >wartime< project over fifty digital and network artists, 
individuals or groups across this planet, organizing through 
the internet, have contributed pieces reflecting on and 
reacting against wars, past, present and future. A further fifty 
or so artists are currently registered to contribute to the 
project in the future.

the project is also designed to be capable of being shown 
LIVE in public and a calendar of these events is on the site.

we hope that the reach and diversity of approach, materials, 
sentiments and location in the component parts of our project 
demonstrates that we will not be dragged into war without 
reaction, without questioning, and that we have the will and 
capacity to defy the borders and barriers erected between 
people by war makers.

current UK and US forces already surrounding or heading for 
Iraq now number over 160,000. Probably the concentration in 
quantity and expense of the weaponry and its destructive 
potential which has been assembled facing Iraq has never 
been matched before. Heavy casualties for civilian and military 
are very possible if the cities of Iraq are to be entered and 
attacked. This and the possibility of war wider in the Middle 
East and further can threaten our environment and lives 
nearly everywhere on this planet. 

If we are responsible to ourselves and to others we should 
consider making what contribution we can to halting this 
descent into destruction, working in our own areas and with 
our own particular skills, as we are attempting to do with the 
>wartime< project, and with initiatives such as 
http://artcontext.org/antiWar/index.php, and by joining wider 
activities such as the US wide anti-war day on January 18th 
and the planned anti-war marchs across Europe on Febuary 
15th.

landscape. A must-read for anyone interested in new media, visual culture,
art history, cinema, and all other fields that use virtual images."

(Lev Manovich, author of The Language of New Media)

"The highly ambitious task of locating the latest image technologies within
a wider art-historical context has now been accomplished."

(Friedrich Kittler, author of Gramophone, Film, Typewriter)



Content: Going beyond technical and ahistorical views of media art, Oliver
Grau analyzes what is really new in media art by focusing on recent work
against the backdrop of historic developments. Although many people view
virtual and mixed realities - images of art and science - as a totally new
phenomenon, it has its foundations in an unrecognized history of immersive
images. The search for illusionary visual space can be traced back to
antiquity. Oliver Grau shows how virtual art fits into the art history of
illusion and immersion and shows how each epoch used the technical means
available to produce maximum illusion from Pompeiis Villa dei Misteri via
baroque frescoes, panoramas, immersive cinema to the CAVE. He describes the
metamorphosis of the concepts of art and the image and relates those
concepts to interactive art, interface design, telepresence, biogenetic art
and image evolution. Grau retells art history as media history, helping us
to understand the phenomenon of immersion beyond the hype.

Grau also examines those characteristics of virtual art that distinguish it
from earlier forms of illusionary art and thus shows us what is really new
in media art. His analysis draws on the work of contemporary artists and
groups like 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.


Quotes from the field:

"Grau's Virtual Art opens the door onto a significant new approach to media
analysis by focusing in depth on a particular kind of digital art--the
attempt to create immersive environments. The combination of media
archeology and careful analysis of both the possibilities and limitations
of the impulse to put the viewer inside the artwork will make this book a
valuable resource to both practitioners and theoreticians."

(Stephen Wilson, Professor of Conceptual and Information Arts, San
Francisco State University, and author of Information Arts)

"Oliver Grau expands notions of immersion with a comprehensive overview of
artistic meditations on illusion, presence and space. Using historical and
innovative media-art project examples, he offers multiple perspectives on
the evolution of our world-view. No doubt this volume will be a useful
resource for any serious practitioner and/or theorist engaging the merging
of art, science and technology."

(Victoria Vesna, Chair, Design and Media Arts, University of California,
Los Angeles)


Quotes from the Press

"A key book -- Oliver Grau's art historical study taps into the new virtual
image spaces." (Frankfurter Allgemeine)

"The scope ranges far beyond analogue and digital image techniques; this is
more than a piece of media archaeology." (MEDIENwissenschaft)

"Grau's analysis enriches the current debate on media art and virtual
worlds by providing an historical perspective." (Der Tagesspiegel)

"The parallels revealed are astounding." (Sueddeutsche Zeitung)


Oliver Grau is a new-media art historian and lectures at the Department of
Art History, Humboldt University in Berlin. He is a visiting professor at
the Kunstuniversity Linz and is head of the German Science Foundation
project on Immersive Art in Berlin, also he is developing the first
international data base resource for virtual art. He published widely on
VR-art and lectured in Europe, Japan, Brasil and the US. Oliver Grau is an
elected member of the Young Academy of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of
Sciences (BBAW) and the Leopoldina. His research focuses on the history of
illusion and immersion in media and art, the history of the idea and
culture of telepresence and telecommunication, genetic art, and artificial
intelligence.

I thought this might be suitable for 'announcements'. They often have some
interesting and (unusually, for an activist-type site) well-researched
investigative pieces.

Cheers, SER.

From: Karl-Erik Tallmo <tallmo {AT} nisus.se>
Subject: on medical science and its loyalties

Hi all,

After two and a half years of work a new issue of my web magazine The 
Art Bin is up online at last. Many people surmised it had been 
discontinued.

But the delay is due to my illness, fibromyalgia, with chronic 
fatigue and muscle pain, probably caused by mercury poisoning from 
dental amalgam.

I got the idea to devote an issue of my web magazine to this topic, 
the so-called new diagnoses, such health problems that are not 
considered quite appropriate, health problems that sometimes are not 
recognized by doctors and subject to dispute among scientists. The 
epistemological and political matter, how one should relate to 
possible but yet not proven hazards, is a cardinal problem here.

My own two articles grew out to be almost book size, so I decided to 
make PDF files of them as well, a total of 131 pages:

** "A life redirected"
This is my own story, of nine years of illness.

** "Consensus and canaries: About medical science and its loyalties"
This long article scrutinizes medical practice as well as scientific 
research. It describes how many doctors regard illnesses they can't 
understand as psychosomatic, illnesses such as amalgam poisoning or 
chronic fatigue syndrome. Scientific research regarding the hazards 
of, for instance, tobacco, toxic chemicals, dental amalgams or mobile 
phones has been and is being manipulated, attacked or concealed, 
often with the help of scientists who secretly work as consultants 
for the very industry branch that has a direct interest in a certain 
result of their research. An essential question is also whether 
newspapers should report new research findings about possible health 
risks, even if the so-called scientific community has not yet reached 
consensus about it, something that often may take decades.

The article contains revealing facts about Nordic scientists' secret 
collaborations since the 60's with American tobacco company Philip 
Morris. Some of this has hardly been known before, but some of it has 
been fuel for a scandal going on for over a year at the university in 
Geneva, Switzerland, the so-called Rylander affair.

Both articles in one PDF at http://www.art-bin.com/art/pdf_download.html

You will get an overview of these and all other articles in this 
issue at http://art-bin.com/aaehome.html

Best regards,

Karl-Erik Tallmo
editor, The Art Bin
