DIGITAL CULTURE by CHARLIE GERE

During the last twenty years, digital technology has begun to touch on 
almost every aspect of our lives. Nowadays most forms of mass media, 
television, recorded music and film are produced and even distributed 
digitally; and these media are beginning to converge with digital forms, 
such as the internet, the World Wide Web, and video games, to produce a 
seamless digital mediascape. At work we are surrounded by technology, 
whether in offices or in supermarkets and factories, where almost every 
aspect of planning, design, marketing, production and distribution is 
monitored or controlled digitally.

In Digital Culture Charlie Gere articulates the degree to which our 
everyday lives are becoming dominated by digital technology, whether in 
terms of leisure, work or bureaucracy. This dominance is reflected in 
other areas, including the worlds of finance, technology, scientific 
research, media and telecommunications. Out of this situation a 
particular set of cultural responses has emerged, for example, in art, 
music, design, film, literature and elsewhere.

This book offers a new perspective on digital culture by examining its 
development, and reveals that, despite appearances, it is neither 
radically new, nor ultimately technologically driven. The author traces 
its roots to the late 18th century, and shows how it sprang from a 
number of impulses, including the information needs of industrial 
capitalism and contemporary warfare, avant-garde artistic practice, 
counter-cultural experimentation, radical philosophy and sub-cultural 
style. It is these conditions that produced both digital technology and 
digital culture, and which have determined how they develop.

Charlie Gere <http://www.bbk.ac.uk/hafvm/staff_research/cgere.html> 
(c.gere {AT} bbk.ac.uk) is Lecturer in Digital Art History in the School of 
History of Art, Film and Visual Media <http://www.bbk.ac.uk/hafvm/> at 
Birkbeck College, University of London.

now available for download, retrograde release no. 15, february 2003:

PhonoStatic 10 Cassette

description: http://psrf.detritus.net/vi/k10/index.html

(direct download of  26 ogg vorbis file available on above link)

This issue comprises one of a regular series of audio cassettes with 
the similar name PhonoStatic, forming an integral, though sidestream, 
component of the PhotoStatic project.

Description. "Audio Collage." The current issue, as the booklet notes 
point out, is a bit of a departure from the previous releases in the 
series (which you've yet to hear!) in that silent pauses between the 
tracks are not used as a convention to separate the work of one 
artist from the next. The editor chose instead to undertake an 
"editorial improvisation" with the source material at hand, and make 
from it an audio collage, as the title of the tape indicates. Audio 
Collage features works by previous PhonoStatic contributors, 
including Tim Risher; the then-fledgling Tape-beatles; the prolific, 
and decidedly low-tech, X.Y. Zedd (a.k.a. Scott Paul Elledge); 
saxophreak Barry Edgar Pilcher (excerpts from his long-form "Mail Art 
Love Express" appearing dispersed throughout), and the mysterious 
9digit Zip. Visual and verbal artist contributors, doubling here as 
audio artist contributors, include Wisconsin's Floating Concrete 
Orchestra (Miekal And, Liz Was, and others), John Kennedy a.k.a. 
Berndt, word artist Jake Berry, and the Scraptacular Chris Winkler. 
Significant contributions are also made by the Mystery Tape 
Laboratories of Toronto, the Bordelais group Ensemble Vide, the 
Post-Void Radio Theatre from Minneapolis, and others, creating an 
international line up of audio artists working in extremely varied 
ways. Nonetheless, the collection forms a very listenable and 
cohesive whole.

Contributors include. Barry Edgar Pilcher, G. X. Jupitter-Larsen, Son 
of Spam, Paragate, Bill Shores, X Y Zedd, John Kennedy, Mechanical 
Sterility, The Tape-beatles, Mystery Laboratories, José Vanden 
Broucke, L'Abbé Martine Arbiste, Chris Winkler, Floating Concrete 
Orchestra, The Post-Void Radio Theater, Bill McMahon, 9digit Zip, 
Ensemble Vide, Jake Berry.

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.

life_sharing: 2 years of data nudism


life_sharing is a real time sharing system based on Linux. Since January
2001 0100101110101101.ORG's computer has been turned into a transparent
webserver. Any user has free and unlimited access to all contents:
texts, images, software, private mail; get lost in this huge data maze.
life_sharing is a brand new concept of net architecture turning a
website into a hardcore personal media for complete digital
transparency. "The only place I know where you can wander through
someone else's computer... legally, that is..." (Dedmaus.com). Over the
last 365 days life_sharing generated 3,721,541 visit requests from
100,669 unique visitors. 52,681.21 Megabytes of data have been
downloaded. "life_sharing is abstract pornography" (Hito Steyerl).
Permanent infotainment from the peer to peer generation.
Privacy is stupid.

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

Baba Masataka ("A" magazine) vol. 008

I'm recently interested in Nihombashi. I'm even considering to
move my office there. Today I'm checking out a possible location,
in an incredibly empty and deserted neighborhood. Not a single
shop is open here, they've all put their shutters up. Nobody walking
in the street. Leave this area alone and in a couple of weeks it's
probably dead forever. Nevertheless, this doesn't change the fact
that I'm extremely interested in this place. There's a mushroom of
small office buildings here, and these are all vacant without exception.
I think it would be interesting to convert them into living spaces.
To set up an office here might be a little inconvenient, but, hey, we're
right in the centre of town here, with Tokyo station just around the
corner and a whole bunch of subway stations around! In less than 20
minutes one can reach Shibuya or Shinjuku!

(2) Tokyo no Shikakenintachi
===============================================================

Vol. 011: Rai Mitsuhiro
(interviewer: RT editor Ozaki Tetsuya)

The eleventh guest in our column introducing creative Tokyo heads
is Rai Mitsuhiro, founder of the "Cinema Rise" mini theatre in
Shibuya that has earned film fans' trust and acknowledgement with
selected programs of superb movies. In a conversation with Rai we
learned that not only in the film world, but also in the field of
art he is a true connoisseur...

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

12K/LINE Japan Tour

As label founder, musician and designer, Taylor Deupree has been
playing a central role in the US techno scnene. After working
with numerous projects such as Human Mesh Dance or SETI, he has
settled down in the creation of microscopic, repetitive sound
sculpturing, which has earned his 12K and sub-label LINE a
reputation as leading minimal techno force next to the likes of
Berlin's Rastermusik. On this Japan tour Deupree brings along
Richard Chartier, who has been astonishing both music and art
worlds with a style close to John Cage's "4'33," and Sogar, who
has recently released an album on the new French label "List."
Joining from Japan are Nibo and Fonica, and they make it worth
to attend this supposedly rather quiet 'gallery-style' event
right from the start.

virtual
images."=20

(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."=20

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


"Dismiss Oliver Grau's new book as a German multimedia theorist's =

(WIRED, January 2003)


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 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, agents, telepresence, 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 reality 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 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.=20


More 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)=20


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)

bzzzpeek is presenting a collection of 'onomatopoeia'
from around the world using sound recordings from 
native speakers imitating the sounds of mainly animals
and vehicles.
 
this project focuses on the pronounciation and 
comparation of these sounds by presenting them side by
side as each language expresses them differently.
bzzzpeek.com is an interactive experience inviting
everybody to contribute.

Writing Machines
N. Katherine Hayles
designed by Anne Burdick

Tracing a journey from the 1950s through the 1990s, N. Katherine Hayles uses 
the autobiographical persona of Kaye to explore how literature has 
transformed itself from inscriptions rendered as the flat durable marks of 
print to the dynamic images of CRT screens, from verbal texts to the diverse 
sensory modalities of multimedia works, from books to technotexts.

Weaving together Kaye's pseudo-autobiographical narrative with a theorization 
of contemporary literature in media-specific terms, Hayles examines the ways 
in which literary texts in every genre and period mutate as they are 
reconceived and rewritten for electronic formats. As electronic documents 
become more pervasive, print appears not as the sea in which we swim, 
transparent because we are so accustomed to its conventions, but rather as a 
medium with its own assumptions, specificities, and inscription practices. 
Hayles explores works that focus on the very inscription technologies that 
produce them, examining three writing machines in depth: Talan Memmott's 
groundbreaking electronic work Lexia to Perplexia, Mark Z. Danielewski's cult 
postprint novel House of Leaves, and Tom Phillips's artist's book A Humument. 
Hayles concludes by speculating on how technotexts affect the development of 
contemporary subjectivity.

N. Katherine Hayles is Professor of English and Design | Media Arts at the 
University of California at Los Angeles. She is the author of How We Became 
Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics, Literature, and Informatics. Anne 
Burdick is the design editor of ebr-The Electronic Book Review.
