LEONARDO CO-SPONSORS COMPOSING MESSAGES TO THE COSMOS: PARIS WORKSHOP

A group of twenty artists, scientists, and scholars from the humanities will
gather in Paris, March 23 and 24 (Sunday and Monday), to understand how we
might communicate the idea of altruism to any intelligent civilizations that
could be circling other stars.

The workshop‹³Encoding Altruism: The Art and Science of Interstellar Message
Composition²‹will focus on messages that could be transmitted by radio waves
or laser pulses. These communication techniques reflect the methods used in
the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), including the world's
most comprehensive search, Project Phoenix, being conducted by the SETI
Institute.

³As SETI programs become increasingly powerful, we need to think seriously
about what to do if we succeed. Should we reply? If so, what should we say?²
asked chair of the workshop, Dr. Douglas Vakoch. ³How could we convey
concepts as seemingly abstract as altruism or our sense of beauty?²

Participants from a dozen countries will ponder these questions and other
topics, including - Creating interactive interstellar messages. - Preparing
for interstellar contact by studying animal communication. - Explaining the
logic of altruism. - Conveying religious views of altruism through
artificial languages. - Composing interstellar "music" inspired by the
structure of DNA.

More information including complete biographies and abstracts is available
online at http://publish.seti.org/art_science/2003/

The workshop is being sponsored by the SETI Institute; Leonardo/OLATS
(Leonardo Observatory for the Arts and TechnoSciences); the John Templeton
Foundation; the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology
(ISAST); and the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) Permanent SETI
Study Group.

END

NOTE TO EDITORS: Participation is by invitation only. Interested journalists
should contact workshop chair Douglas Vakoch (altruism {AT} seti.org), cell 06 32

Subject: .:: akushinn - eine sekunde nach der revolution: erste phase gestartet


pressemitteilung .::. information


akushinn – eine sekunde nach der revolution:
erste phase gestartet

köln, 25/03/2003. akushinn ist ein multiuser-theaterprojekt des
online-magazins yugen.de in kooperation mit der
heinrich-heine-universität düsseldorf. das über sechs monate verlaufende
projekt ist nun in die erste phase gegangen.


projektbeschreibung:
über yugen.de (adresse: http://akushinn.yugen.de) werden fragmente
gesammelt. ein fragment ist bei akushinn ein beitrag in form von text,
sound, bild oder video. aus den fragmenten wird ein theaterstück
zusammengesetzt. die theatercollage wird im rahmen eines seminars der
philosophischen fakultät erstellt und aufgeführt. 

thematisch geht es um den zustand eine sekunde nach der revolution. in
sämtlichen denkbaren und unerwarteten - da revolutionären- kontexten. 

revolution ist kein staatspolitischer begriff. revolution ist wird als
umwälzung auf allen ebenen gelesen: geistig - gesellschaftlich -
kulturell - geschichtlich. 
begriffe bekommen andere bedeutungen, ideologien werden verworfen und
neu geboren, das universum ist in sekunden ein vollkommen anderes ohne
sich verändert zu haben. 

akushinn lebt durch die beteiligung der user. ihre ideen gestalten das
projekt! was verbindest du mit dem zustand eine sekunde nach der
revolution? es geht um utopie und distopie, hoffnung, angst und
überwindung geistiger horizonte. 

alle teilnehmer sind zu den aufführungen von akushinn eingeladen und
erhalten einen katalog über sämtliche werke und beteiligte.


projektverlauf:
das projekt verläuft in drei phasen.

I. in der ersten phase werden über yugen fragmente gesammelt. ein
fragment ist bei akushinn ein von einem nutzer hochgeladener beitrag in
form von text, sound, bild oder video. 

eigene texte, literaturhinweise, sounds, bilder/screens,
videos/animationen, politische pamphlete, rollenbeschreibungen,
theaterszenen – was immer dir einfällt ist für akushinn interessant.
sämtliche fragmente können jederzeit auf der website von allen
betrachtet werden. diese phase endet im juni 2003.

II. in phase zwei werden aus diesen fragmenten szenen erstellt. die
fragmente werden bearbeitet, in einen zusammenhang und in eine geeignete
mediale form gebracht. so werden dialoge von schauspielern eingeprobt,
monologe auf video aufgezeichnet, bilder animiert, raumkonzepte
entworfen, etc.

III. in der dritten phase werden die herausgearbeiteten szenen vom
virtuellen raum in den realen raum umgesetzt. in verschiedenen räumen
werden die aspekte der revoultion mit unterschiedlichsten medien
inszeniert.

man bewegt sich aus einem raum, in dem zwei schauspieler einen dialog in
endlosschleife durchspielen durch einen raum mit videoprojektionen,
gelangt in eine soundinstallation, undsoweiter...

die zweite und dritte phase wird im sommer 2003 umgesetzt. die
aufführung findet im august/september 2003 statt.


über yugen.de:
yugen.de ist ein online-popmagazin über netzkultur, musik, literatur und
lifestyle. yugen versteht sich als schnittstelle für sender und
empfänger guter gedanken.

netzliteratur, klang, interaktive kunst- und theaterprojekte sind themen
für yugen. yugen möchte kein magazin im herkömmlichen sinne sein,
sondern will den user in die kommunikation einbinden. es gibt
diskussionsforen und darüber hinaus unterschiedlichste netzprojekte
(z.b. "akushinn", "chainsite massacre"), die dem user eine aktive
beteiligung ermöglichen.

der start von yugen war im oktober 2002. 
seitdem schreiben und konzipieren die elf mitglieder der yugen-crew
texte und projekte für eine interessante welt. 

yugen bringt uns alle nach vorne.

AIM IV: Interference Patterns

The University of Southern California School of Fine Arts’ Fourth Annual International Festival of Time-based Media
presents a
AIM IV Juror Lecture
Lev Manovich
Sunday, March 30, 2003
2 – 4 pm
WAH 105 - on the USC campus

Join us at the USC School of Fine arts for an AIM IV Juror lecture with Lev Manovich.  Manovich will be speaking about and presenting SOFT CINEMA, his ground-breaking digital video project.
Using a large media databse and custom software, SOFT CINEMA edits movies in real time by choosing elements from the database using a structured system of rules.  The software decides what, where and in which sequence, video appears on the screen and what music track is played.  Soft Cinema can be thought of as a semi-automatic VJ (Video Jockey).
Manovich is a world renowned author and new media 
theorist and Associate Professor in the visual Arts Department. University of California, San Diego where he teaches courses in new media art and theory.
The lecture will address the
 merge between previously independent technologies and how that new collaborative technology allows for increased user interaction and creativity, making the human and non human interface much more interdependent.

All events are FREE and open to the public.

Parking on USC campus is $6.  Meters outside USC Campus are $.25/hour, max 4 hours.

For more information, email aim {AT} usc.edu or call 213-821-1620.

Live Projection Performances

At the last weekend of the exhitition FUTURE CINEMA the ZKM presents two
Live Projection Performacnes

P e r r y  H o b e r m a n: Let’s Make a Monster (2001) 
Live Projection Performance 

Sat-Sun March 29-30, 2003
ZKM Media Theater, 3 p.m. on both days, entrance free

L e t’ s  M a k e  a  M o n s t e r  is partly cinematographic
archaeology, a collage of parables, ironic stories and "fan cut". In his
performance, Hoberman uses excerpts from countless sci-fi classics that
deal with the creation of artificial life. Like an electronic alchemist,
mad scientist, or Wizard of Oz he conducts these images in front of a
collection of cameras, laptops and other instruments. Hoberman’s story
contrasts the mad fantasies of a Dr. Frankenstein with the prophecies of
the countless contemporary experts on artificial life and intelligence,
and demonstrates in an ironic manner that there are indeed parallels.
Frankenstein meets Brave New World, Golem meets Bladerunner, Coma meets
The Invisible Man.



J u l i e n  M a i r e: Demi-Pas, 20 mins
Projection Performance 

Sat.-Sun. March 29-30, 2003
ZKM Media Theater, 5 p.m. on both days, entrance free

D e m i – P a s is a short film and is projected using a 'reversed
camera' technique. A projector has been converted to house
micro-mechanisms that produce animated images using a principle similar
to that of cinematography. "Demi-Pas" thus finds its own narrative
methods, its own action and images, like a kind of projected theater.
Real objects and photographic material are transposed within the
projector. Based on this experimental form of projection, the film
narrates a tale that has an extremely simple storyline: one man's daily
routine. "Demi-Pas" is a short film that constructs an everyday reality,
thus highlighting simultaneously both the simplicity and the complexity
of this reality.
