Subject: new creature by coniglioviola on line

"Un'estate al Mare"(A summer at the Seaside) is the title of the new
web/musical project of the Italian net.artists Coniglioviola.

Coniglioviola purposes an eccentric inquietante  vision of the "Summer at
the Seaside" trough this work in progress which is at the same time a
net.art work, a musical clip, a flash video-game, and a virtual vj set.

Virtual swimmers  can move within the beach looking for various objects and
interacting with them, can use the boat to get into the castle, can zoom in
the vision till entering the depths of the sea or zoom out till transforming
the beach into a sonor wave, besides they can add to the movie various
effects to create an infinite number of possible visions.
All visitors can take active part to the work in progress of the site send
the picture of their own "Summer at the Seaside" and overlap it to the video
looking for it among the stars.

The only limit to the possibilities of interaction is the time: at the
ending of the song the game terminates and you need to restart.

The song "Un'estate al mare" is a famous Italian song written by Franco
Battiato and made famous by Giuni Russo. The new cover is sang by Donatello
as a preview of the new multimedial project that Coniglioviola is preparing
in collaboration with the theatral company of ASSEMBLEA TEATRO:

The Fluxus Home Page


The Companion Web Site to the FLUXLIST Email Discussion Group

The purpose of FLUXLIST is to promote an exchange of ideas about the past,
present, and future of Fluxus.

The list can include a wide range of members, ranging from those who have
recently read or heard about Fluxus to experts.

New Beginnings (Aug, 1999): Guidelines for FLUXLIST participation

"Fluxus has been able to grow because it's had room for dialogue and
transformation.  It's been able to be born and reborn several times in
different ways.  The fluid understanding of its own history and
meaning, the central insistence on dialogue and social creativity
rather than on objects and artifacts have enabled Fluxus to remain
alive on the several occasions that Fluxus has been declared
dead."--Ken Friedman, A FLUXUS IDEA 1/2.

- --the "art" movement

What is Fluxus?  Some definitions, history, and resources.

  Geroge Maciunas

"...a fusion of  Spike Jones, vaudeville, gag, children's games and

  Martha Wilson

"Fluxus...holds that change is the only constant.  This movement
contributed the term 'intermedia,' and popularized time-based
performance, video, film,  installation and published multiple forms
that artists and the public take for granted today."

  Ken Friedman

"Fluxus is (or was) an international community of artists, architects,
designers and composers sometimes described as "the most radical and
experimental art movement of the 1960s." In the aftermath of the 30th
anniversary exhibitions, Fluxus has been celebrated as a leading force
in the development of post-modern culture and dismissed as a group of
charlatans. Variously described in terms of architecture, design,
music, poetry, criticism, social sculpture, mathematics, politics,
dance, film, visual art and many more, Fluxus can be thought of as a
community of people engaged in all these disciplines. What they had (or
have) in common is their engagement in evanescent forms that expanded
the boundaries of art. When Fluxus emerged, it was radically distinct.
It was not an art form or a way of making art, but a way of viewing
society and life, a way of creating social action and life activity.

"Fluxus occupied ecological border zones between existing forms and
media, only some of which were art forms. Fluxus successfully and
somewhat problematically erased all distinctions between art,
philosophy, design and daily life. What distinguished Fluxus from
everything else was the fact that we were in love with experimentation,
really in love.

"Often controversial, willing to argue with each other and with the
common view of art, Fluxus participants were diverse in goals and
divergent in viewpoint. The work was rooted in science and social
practice as well as in art, resolutely experimental, profoundly
theoretical and often didactic. These factors made Fluxus difficult to
describe. Lacking a common sensibility or a trademark style, Fluxus was
overlooked by an art market that defined the art history of recent
decades. This situation has changed. Historical studies now locate
Fluxus as a primary source of conceptual art, intermedia and
performance art and Fluxus includes founding figures of video art,
installation, mail art and Internet. Neglected by the market-oriented
art world, Fluxus became a source of ideas and practices adopted by
fields ranging from architecture and industrial design to culture
theory and psychology."

  Fluxus Online

"Fluxus is the wry, post-Dada art movement that flourished in New York
and  Germany in the 1950s and 60s, and influences many contemporary
artists.  The rest you have to figure out yourself."

  Ken Friedman (from a 4 October, 1996, post to FLUXLIST)

"Heiko asks, 'Pop/Flux, I think the difference is the still unclear
role of Maciunas, unclear to me. Why did people follow him?? What was
so convincing in his concept, personality?'

"It's not clear that anyone "followed" George in the normal sense of
the word. I was close to him in the mid-60s and in those years worked
more closely with him than many of the other Fluxus people, but you
couldn't say I "followed" him.

"George's role is quite clear. It's there in the history if you wish to
read it. Four scholars have addressed different aspects of the issue,
each from different views. Owen Smith's doctoral dissertation looks
most specifically at George and at his relations with the rest of us.

Smith, Owen. George Maciunas and a History of Fluxus (or) the Art
Movement that Never Was. Seattle: University of Washington, Department
of Art History, 1991. [doctoral dissertation]

"What's a key here, is that much of what is said and written about
George is the repetitive recycling of a few dramatic inventions that
distort and mistake his role. He played an important role as one among
several key figures, but the historical fact is that George was
actually a late-comer to the circle of people who formed Fluxus. This
circle began to form in the mid-50s in New York and in Europe among
people who met and contacted each and who stayed in good touch during
the formative years and after. In New York, this included the circle of
Cage's students and friends such as Higgins, Knowles, Hansen, and
others. In Europe, it included Paik, Vostell, Williams, Patterson and
others. George met these people and brought them into the framework of
his plan for a magazine called Fluxus. He had a name and an idea: the
artists eventually adopted the name but they did not adopt George's
ideas and he didn't lead them. Rather, there was -- after some fuss and
bother -- a merging of ideas and expectations. If anything, you can say
it was George who changed rather than the others, but it was all of
them together who became Fluxus.

"Fluxus was the name that George Maciunas created for a magazine. He
used the name for a festival where some of the artists who became the
group known as Fluxus met and performed together publicly for the first
time under the name Fluxus. The name stuck, describing an existing
complex of phenomena and a meeting ground of multiple concepts. To the
degree that George brought the name with him that came to be applied to
Fluxus, you can say that Fluxus was George's name. Even so, you can not
say that Fluxus was "his concept."

"Three other theses and dissertations discuss the several aspects of
this in a brilliant way:

Blom, Ina. 1993. The Intermedia Dynamic: An Aspect of Fluxus. Oslo,
Norway: Institutt for Arkeologi, Kunsthistorie og Numismatikk,
Universitet i Oslo. [magister thesis]

Doris, David T. 1993. Zen Vaudeville: A Medi(t)ation in the Margins of
Fluxus. New York, New York: Department of Art History, Hunter College.
[master's thesis]

Higgins, Hannah. 1994. Enversioning Fluxus: A Venture into Whose
Fluxus, Where and When. Chicago: University of Chicago, Department of
Art History. [doctoral dissertation]

In addition, two magazine special issues shed great light on these

Sellem, Jean, ed. 1991. Fluxus Research. Lund Art Press, Vol. 2, No. 2,
1991: School of Architecture, University of Lund.

This special issue of Lund Art Press is especially notable because it
contains the first widely published version of Dick Higgins's key
article, "Fluxus: Theory and Reception."

Subject: The Hidden War: Re - imagining the Center, an exhibition project

kanonmedia.com in cooperation with the College of Fine Arts of the
University of the Philippines present:

The Hidden War: Re - imagining the Center
an exhibition project on the theme of mediated and commodified violence
showing experimental new media pieces created by students of digital art of
the College of Fine Arts / University of the Philippines:

niko loren c. dela cruz / john paul verdera antido / gretchen flores &
carmel lim / gerson r. flores / michael angelo g. lampayan / deodato m.
pairez & anna cabardo / deodato m. pairez / ian a. quirante / patrick
anthony d. caballa / jan virnice t. sering / jong pairez & anna cabardo /
gandelyn yu / ana shariah salcedo / gerard d. baja / amos manlangit / roland
tristan a. beronilla / edrick daniel / ronald remolacio / dylan jon m.

in the exhibition, the artists articulate their observation and analysis of
mediated and commodified violence. the project asks for a re - imagination,
a reclamation, of one's center as it has been displaced in an age of spin,
and likewise asks whether art, as we have cultivated it today, has merely
been cultivated as fine taste for oblivion.

it will go to work on making more just like it. Since we listen to so much

(0)20 427 5951 =20

Presentation of our new streaming videoserver, which was developed by =
Yariv Alter Fin and Peter Koster in association with Driebit.

Opening Saturday 2nd August, 21.00 hrs.=20

After party with dj Kodi (Amsterdam) & DIN-ST aka dj Maxximus (Berlin)

Exhibition open from 3rd until 24th August 2003.

SMART Project Space presents their new streaming video server that is =
being developed as a web cast channel for video art and art cinema, with =
changing programs and an on-line collection. An installation presenting =
the video server has been designed by Customr (Hugo Timmermans & Willem =
van der Sluis).  In conjunction, two screening rooms will present a =
selection of video works that are available on-line. The server hosts =
works which have been broadcast in the SMART Television programs and/or =
shown in the screening and exhibition programs of SMART Project Space.

The server can be accessed through our website which has existed for =
three years. It will be integrated in the new Flash site that is =
currently under construction.

To guarantee the highest speed and resolution available, the video =
server (a storage and two streaming servers) is placed on the backbone =
of the internet. To make the works accessible to a wide on-line =
audience, the videos are available for different platforms and in =
different bandwidths.

In order to protect the copyright of the artist, we have developed the =
server in a manner that makes it possible for the viewer to watch the =
streams, but impossible to download works from the site.=20

After this first phase, in which a large collection of works will be =
made available on our website, the second phase will provide =
collaborating artist's access to our server, enabling them to upload and =
stream video works from the SMART Server to their own website or =
homepage. A basic SMART Homepage with a user friendly interface will be =
provided for those artists who don't yet have an internet presence.

In this manner we wish to develop the SMART Server not only as a web =
cast channel and on-line collection of video art and art-cinema, but as =
a portal giving access to and connecting the sites of a selected group =
of video artists.

The SMART Video server has been made possible with special funding from =
the Mondrian Foundation and the City of Amsterdam.

Sponsored by: Gemeente Amsterdam, Mentrum, Mondriaan Stichting, Brand =
Bier, Beam Systems, Oc=E9, Lensvelt.

Subject: News from Autonomedia (Ben Meyers)

Hello, friends, and here's your speculation on autonomously-mediated

* *

1: New Books: Domain Errors, Behind the Blip, Revolutionary Writing
2: Big Sale on seconds and pre-worn Autonomedia titles
2.5: Special Deal for infoshops, agit-punks, and other subterranean distros
3: Interns needed!
4: The Bookmobile hits the road, east-coast style.

* *

New Books:

"Domain Errors: Cyberfeminist Practices" by the subRosa Project is
back from the printer and walking on its own legs! This is a fine
collection of essays, critique, and other writing-without-categories
focussed around the political intersections of feminism and
technology, with a distinctly (at times) confrontational tone. Here's
a micro-sample of what they're doing with this book (and this is from
"Refugia! Manifesto for Becoming Autonomous Zones", a two-page
itemized rant that wraps up the end of the book like a high-potency
"Refugia: Neither a utopia nor a dystopia, but a haunted space
for reverse engineering, monstrous graftings, spontaneous generation,
recombination, difference, poly-versity hybridization, wildlings,
mutations, mongrelizing, crop circles, anomalies, useless beauty,
coalitions, agit-crops, and unseemly sproutings. Biotech and
transgenic work in Refugia will be based on desire, consensual public
risk assessment, informed amateur experimentation, contestational
politics, nourishment and taste value, non-proprietary expertise,
convivial delight, and healing."
I don't know if this kind of talk gets you all revved up the way
it does me, but yowza! Sign me up for some of those agit-crops!
The full text of Refugia, by the way, is available as a
single-page broadside, and can be freely downloaded at
http://www.autonomedia.org/domainerrors/refugia.pdf  Be good about
spreading that one around! And see more of the book at


"Behind the Blip: Essays on the Culture of Software" is new from
British new-media cleverton Matthew Fuller (currently in residence at
the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam). Matthew's been involved with
some pretty interesting critical-software projects in the last few
years, digging into the myths behind Human-Computer Interface design,
and revealing the political choices behind the sheen-of-neutrality
found in most everyday-use software. "Behind the Blip" comes out of
these projects, and is largely an articulation of what he found
working on them. Lev Manovich, the author of "The Language of New
Media", says that "what Fuller gives us is not just a usual book of
theory but rather a kind of software -- a 'critical help system' to
help us understand what is really going on behind the menu and the
windows of our computer screens." There's a page about the book at
http://www.autonomedia.org/behindtheblip, and if you like, there's
also a downloadable sample copy of the book at
http://www.autonomedia.org/behindtheblip/blip-sample.pdf. Sorry to be
so long-winded with the URLs, but these are the times we live in...


And speaking of the times we live in, has there ever, ever been a
better time to take the idea of revolution seriously? "Revolutionary
Writing: 'Common Sense' Essays in Post-Political Politics", edited by
Werner Bonefeld, collects more than a dozen essays by such relevant
hard-hitters as Toni Negri, Mariarosa Dalla Costa, John Holloway,
Harry Cleaver, and George Caffentzis. These essays, emerging from the
soapbox of heterodox marxism (i.e., not the Party line, comrade), are
grouped into three sections -- Open Marxism: Subversion and Critique;
The Insurrection of Labor and Global Capital; and The Critique of the
Political. This is a dense, challenging book, as certain to provoke
as to enlighten. But what's better than an enlightened provocation,
comrades? Again, there's sample text available over at our web site:
http://www.autonomedia.org/revolutionarywriting , with a downloadable
55-page sample at

* * *

Now, about these special sale books: As you know, bookstores can be a
fickle, finicky lover, and once in a while we get batches of returns
of books that didn't measure up to the bar. What you didn't know is
that one of our best titles, "Gone to Croatan: Origins of North
American Dropout Culture" suffered this indignity by the boxful when
a shipping agent of ours evidently became a little too ornery for the
thinness of his parcel, and just like that a bunch of Croatans had
their dignity ruined.
A similar sadness took several cartons of the  more-relevant-than
ever "Midnight Oil: Work, Energy, War, 1973-1992"
by the Midnight Notes Collective out of circulation, perfect in every
way except some unfortunate marks to the cover or outer edges, but
not to the extent that they can't be read. And you've got to read
this book, which ties together the relations between work, energy,
oil, and war in ways that defy nationalism and globalize resistance,
as the saying goes. Or, as the back cover blurb puts it, "it draws a
physiognomy of the planetary proletariat, connecting escaped
indentured servants from India to oil workers sabotaging production
in the Niger Delta; Gulf War resisters in New York to Kurdish rebels
in Iraq; insurrectionary Iranian students to wildcat autoworkers in
Detroit; housewives on rent strike in Italy to Boston burners of
midnight oil. This book suggests new boundaries, hidden political
commonalities and possible strategies for confronting the New World
So, here's the deal: Get Croatan for $8! Or get Midnight Oil for
$6! Or, get both for $13!! This order will have to happen by email --
send a note to me or to orders {AT} autonomedia-dot-org, and I'll tell you
how to do it. Standard shipping rates will apply as well, and this
deal will only last as long as the sad-book supply holds out, which
hopefully won't be long. Order a bunch, and I'll even give you a
special rate (see below)!

* *

Infoshops, DIY punk matinee merch-tablists, and other purveyors of
the cheap-and-radical book sale: The above description of our
sad-book supply extends to an entire shelf of inventory in our
warehouse. The titles and quantities are always in flux, but while
we've got them, you're welcome to order them in quantity, and I'll
make 'em cheap! Get in touch via this email address or via
orders-at-autonomedia.org, and I'll give you the full scoop.

To rearticulate: Order ten or more books from our returns shelf, and
they're yours for between $3 and $6 a piece. This offer is intended
primarily for non-commercial distribution outlets, and would be
perfect for your Food-not-Bombs fundraiser, or a radical reading
group (check Midnight Oil again!), or a cheap way to lend some
rad-cred to your lonely-looking bookshelf!

* * *

Intern Needed!

Autonomedia is always on the lookout for dedicated interns who can
commit to a three-to-six month tour of duty here in Brooklyn, working
on a variety of projects. This is an unpaid position (as they all are
here); depending on the interests of the applicant the role could
include production, promotional, editorial, design, administrative,
and muscle-building work, and most likely some exotic cocktail of all
these. Please email me if you're interested.

* * *

The Autonomadic Bookmobile is on the road! The 2-person small-press
medicine show left New Orleans at the end of July, and is slowly
puttering around the eastern half of the U.S. through October.
They've got a tremendous show and a lively library (the kind that
sells stuff, too!), and may well be tracing the wind somewhere near
you right soon! Their home on the web is
http://www.autonomedia.org/bookmobile , and if you stick a
/tour2003.html at the end of that you'll get their schedule.

* * *

That's it for your speculative futures from this end; as always, if
the Autonogram's not your cup of tea, follow the unsubscribe
instructions in the header of this email. If you've been waiting on a
reply from me on some issue or other, please hold tight and maybe
give me a gentle nudge; and of course, all hosannahs and words of
support are welcome at any time. Hooray!

ps, in the "You heard it here first" category: New editions of TAZ
and Pirate Utopias, both with new, added material, will be hitting
the streets right about the beginning of September! Whee!

DIAN - Digital Interactive Artists' Network -
Our focus for the month of August is GEOFFREY THOMAS. We proudly present
his work:



I built Storybeat to house experiments in animation, interaction and
storytelling. In my work I explore personal and psychological
narratives. These explorations are often filtered through the culture of
technology and influenced by the destabilizing elements of digital
media. Using the web as my distribution platform, I am interested in
experimenting with nonlinear and nonhierarchical structures, chance
juxtapositions and responsive interaction.

DIAN - Digital Interactive Artists' Network - is a network for artists
who are seriously involved in using Internet technology in the domain of
contemporary art.

We are deeply interested in artists working in this field. Artists
working with the web, the net and related domains, please submit your

Since July 2-2003: What's Hot?



    It was while thinking about the way in which distances are calculated,
after having finished Le Sixième Monde, that I started to wonder how long it
would take to travel one degree. The degree of longitude determines (more or
less) the hour at which we live our lives and its distance depends on its
latitude, a degree of latitude is always of the same distance. This
flexibility allows a certain amount of play to come into calculations of
time distance and speed, without involving quantum physics, and this play
seemed to be an appropriate manner in which to follow the didacticism of. Le
Sixième Monde, both insofar as they concern travel and the relativity of the
definition of reality. This relativity is at the heart of the meaning of
images, of representation of the reality which is fundamental to documentary

     The other side of the work which I am involved in concerns the
constraints and the manipulation of generic codes in the cinema, which has
been to a large extent determined by the history of American cinema, even
though I am a European, working in Europe. Cinematic genres play an
essential role in the fabrication of the mythology, which goes so far in its
contribution to the American psyche, and our image of the United States.

     During the months of July and August 2003, then later as the project
develops, this site proposes a log in "real" time as the more developed
stages of scouting out sequences emerge.
