You are reading the third issue of the Ars Electronica 2003 newsletter, providing information about the program of the symposia at this year's festival, CODE - The Language of Our Time.

.............................
1. CODE Symposium
.............................

The several panels of the CODE Symposium being presented from September 7 to September 11 will host detailed discussions of various aspects of the festival theme, CODE - The Language of Our Time.

Sunday and Monday are dedicated to rather theoretical considerations; in the following panels, the presentation of artistic ideas and projects moves to the top of the agenda. Protagonists of a software-based mode of artistic practice present their work and discuss how they utilize and deal with software.

Key topics will include the role of industry standards, the emergence of artistic trends as a consequence of program features, efforts to achieve artistic autonomy, and the aesthetics of codes.



Sunday, September 7
...................................................

10:30 - 13:30 The Meaning of CODE

The first panel at this year's symposium is dedicated to an attempt at defining the term CODE in a way that encompasses its artistic, legislative and biological facets. At the same time, this will shed light on historical aspects of CODE ranging from the book to the computer, from the codex to the regulatory efforts of modern governments, and from classic, script-based computer programs to evolutionary algorithms-dynamic systems that are capable of coming up with solutions to their own problems. What do artists, scientists and legal scholars understand CODE to be? Is it even possible to establish a generally applicable definition of this term? This kickoff of the CODE symposia will feature an elemental confrontation with terminological problems and issues raised by this year's Festival.

Moderation: Gerfried Stocker

Statements: Gerfried Stocker, Friedrich Kittler, Cindy Cohn, Erkki Huhtamo, Peter J. Bentley


15:00 - 18:00 The Art of Code

What effects is digitization having on art? What special characteristics are displayed by code-based art? And how does this inherent, uniquely self-determined expressive vocabulary of digital art manifest itself? What consequences will art as code-according to Kriesche, *alone* the generative answer to the complete permeation of *all* partial realities-have for the ongoing development of the arts? In which direction is artists' work with new instruments like algorithms and dynamic systems transforming the process of artistic creativity? Or is the concentration on CODE, this focus on the immediate basis of the technological transformation of art, proceeding along the wrong path, and should the confrontation with media art concentrate on social approaches-collaborative, social modes of action, the potential of connective interfaces-without which there can be no productive and uniquely self-determined human activity?

Moderation: Roy Ascott

Statements: Giaco Schiesser, Richard Kriesche, John Maeda, Roman Verostko, Casey Reas



Monday, September 8
...................................................

10:30 - 13:30 Social Code

Social activity is characterized by codes-individuals make themselves understood via language and communicate with human faces as their "interfaces." If the new codes that have been designed and developed for interaction with technical interfaces change our social and collective actions or even contribute to the development of new types of social intercourse, then how will this process be played out? Which structures are influencing this social transformation? And to what extent does the design of electronic devices play a role in this connection-are users of the new technology becoming passive consumers or mature, responsible critics of their equipment? The most far-reaching question undoubtedly arises in connection with the current overall social situation-are network linkages and mobility enhancing collective action or being applied to construct an instrument of state control and social engineering?

Moderation: Derrick de Kerckhove

Statements: Howard Rheingold, Leo Findeisen, Fiona Raby, Hans Peter Schwarz


15:00 - 18:00 Collective Creativity

Language-the code of human understanding-enabled humanity to take a quantum leap of collective intelligence. How do the new possibilities of communication influence the exchange of ideas within and among societies? How does software determine our collective creativity? Do computer programs influence the way we see the world and how we think? Can there be a language of collective intelligence? And-getting down to details-what effects will the new Open Source and Open Standards approaches have on the further development and progress of collective creativity?

Moderation: Derrick de Kerckhove

Statements: Pierre Lévy, Florian Cramer, John Warnock, Marc Canter, James 
McCartney

...................................................

10:30 - 13:30 Tangible Code

Interaction cannot be equated per se with the process of programming, though this holds true only in connection with the current practice of interaction that, in most cases, only represents a more of less complex process of selection. But what will future interaction look like-a form of interaction that goes beyond the process of selecting one option from among several? And, accordingly, how will the process of programming be defined in the future? The essence of programming could then be more than a linear, predetermined approach; it could well become more of an interactive, real-time process! Will such a new conceptualization create a code that is both realizable and at the same time accessible for the purpose of manipulation and reconfiguration-a sort of real-time compiling?

Moderation: Hiroshi Ishii

Statements: Hiroshi Ishii, Joachim Sauter, Oliver Fritz, Scott DeLahunta, Jonathan Norton

10:30 - 13:30 Software & Art I.

This session is dedicated to artists' relation to software. The discussion will investigate some of the preconditions upon which artistic work with software-and even software itself-are based. What motivates artists to work with software; when and for what purposes do they utilize computer programs in their work? What outstanding characteristics are displayed by software as an instrument of artistic creativity; what makes this material unique and in what respect is its makeup similar or identical to that of other materials? Based on how things look today, what are the prospects (new areas of utilization) for the artistic use of code in the future?

Moderation: Casey Reas

Statements: Lia, Laurent Mignonnau Golan Levin / Zachary Lieberman, Alex Galloway, Ben Fry, Christa Sommerer, James McCartney, Sebastian Oschatz



Thursday, September 11
...................................................

10:30 - 13:30 Software & Art II.

The consideration of software as an art form evidently raises a number of questions: can any software be considered art and, if not, where do we draw the line between software as art and software as a "mere" commercial product? To what extent is the identity of so-called "new media art" or digital art defined by its nature as art based on code? What are the aesthetics of software art and how can they be assessed by traditional art-immanent criteria (or should they be at all)?

Moderation: Christiane Paul

Statements: Christiane Paul, Alexei Shulgin, Olga Goriunova, Christian Hübler, Andreas Broeckmann, Alex McLean, Amy Alexander

Monday, September 8 and Tuesday, September 9

18:00 - 20:30 Pixelspaces-DAMPF

The Ars Electronica Futurelab Symposium entitled *Pixelspaces-Sensory Environments - Immaterial Interfaces* will concentrate on an area of emphasis of the Futurelab's recent work and, at the same time, a field in which the traditional arts have been increasingly converging on media art. Over the course of the conference, participants will examine the extent to which traditional artistic institutions (such as those involved with musical theater and dance) are signaling a readiness to take into account the development of media art, or the extent to which they are even in a position to do so. This symposium together with Klaus Obermaier's "Dance and Media Performance Fusion" (DAMPF), an interdisciplinary project dealing with the stage as a sensory environment, will constitute a forum in which the theory and practice of the convergence of media art and dance will be consummated in artistic and technical practice.

RADIO-FRO-KONFERENZ
.............................

Tuesday, September 9

14:00 - 18:00 Towards a Society of Control?

Digital codes define how we communicate with one another in global networks, conduct business, obtain information and share knowledge. Nevertheless, the increasingly widespread propagation of code raises the question of the control of standards, and thus the control of the content that is being disseminated. Is the EU's amendment to copyright protection-"Digital Rights Management" (DRM), which sets up rigorous barriers against duplication-in actuality a step in the direction of "digital restriction management"? Are traditional "open spaces" increasingly endangered? What consequences are digital and legal standards like DRM having for Information Society?

Die Radio Fro Conference is divided into two panels:

PANEL A: CONTAINING INFORMATION: new digital standards, changes in copyright and their impact on freedom of information

PANEL B: DIGITAL STANDARDS AND THE PUBLIC DOMAIN: consequences and current strategies for an independent public sphere

backup_festival. new media in film

backup is an international festival for film and video productions developed
using digital tools and a stock-taking within the realm of 'new media'.

backup began in the European Cultural Capital Year 1999. with its 2001
edition, backup has reached a level that secures it a respectable place
among the European festivals. last year we received over 1000 entries from
42 countries for the international competition. there was an fruitful
cooperation with media businesses, and likewise joint events with other
German and European universities besides Weimar's Bauhaus University.

the deadline for entries is July 31, 2003 (postmark and online)
the date of our festival in 2003: October 30 - November 2

additionally, all of the above is available online.
you can register with this form on our website www.backup-festival.com until
July 31.

the call for entries

this year there are three interesting sections:

for the international backup.award we are at first interested in shorts
which are no longer than 15 minutes and not older than two years. we are
interested in film and video productions developed using digital means.
(shorts, music video, experimental, trailer and so on) prizes will be
awarded with a total value of 4,500 euro.

we also have the backup.clipaward for music video, but it is a national
award. backup defines the videoclip as a creative playground for audiovisual
and intermedial experiments in the realm of new media. the clips should also
not be older than two years. prizes will be awarded with a total value of
3,000 euro.

and we have an international call for entries for the backup.lounge|lab.
there we will create a workspace: this announcement is directed at creative
types in all disciplines. together with a workshop leader, the invited
participants will put a continual recontextualization of the spatial
structures into motion during a 10-day
laboratory phase. this process will be continued through the four days of
the backup 2003 and should enable the festival guests to be
equally-empowered actors. Testing Truth - XOR - the metaphoric quality of
binary code forms the thematic starting point of this
year's »backup.lounge|lab«. awards and honorariums will not be granted.

mission unmindful of the canons, pantheons or histories that commonly
implicate and complicate the relationships between and among artists and
their works.

In DECODE, the introduction of new media in the Gallery, not only side by
side, but in direct dialogue with the Gallery’s permanent collection of
Philippine modern art, sets the stage for an interpretive framework for an
art form that is always in flux. With new media in the cradle of modern art,
critical insights and connections ignite.

DECODE is a boldly speculative and experimental exhibition. The works are
diverse, from sculpture to software, and the exhibition space enfolds beyond
the Gallery, into the Internet. Such openness and hybridism embraced in
Philippine art mainstream, through the initiatives of the Ateneo Art
Gallery, is indeed one giant leap in the unyielding commitment to engage
distances between tradition and innovation, between human and technological
complexity, between art and life media.

"The orchestrated embrace of Philippine modern art and new media in DECODE
presents an intriguing bifurcation of use of technologies in art, revealing
how new media takes art in new directions. By looking at relationships
between Philippine modern art and new media, DECODE explores the fertile
ground where old and new media overlap."

Dear Announcer, here is the Locative Media closing announcement,

yours,

Marc Tuters

LOCATIVE MEDIA WORKSHOP
July 16-26, 2003, K {AT} 2, Karosta, LV | Longitude 21.00, Latitude 56.55

CLOSING REPORT [01/08/03]: Mapping ‘the Zone’


With portable, GPS-equipped networked computing devices, people can produce and share their our own cartographic data, and map their physical
environments, providing artists a tool by which space becomes their canvas.

The Locative Media Workshop <locative.x-i.net> brought an international group of artists and researchers to the K {AT} 2 Culture and Information Centre
in Karosta (a partially abandoned military installation on the coast of the Baltic Sea resembling ‘the Zone’ from Tarkovsky’s ‘Stalker’) to
explore the potential of this new mapping paradigm, both conceptually and through the creative use of GPS technologies.

The workshop utilized mobile, location-aware networking devices/software
(courtesy of and developed by the Waag Society/Esther Polak), to trace the movements of workshop participants in real-time as they mapped
Karosta’s so-called ‘elephant trails’, a web of footpaths criss-crossing the installation’s rigid military grid structure. A unique application
was produced during the workshop (by Pall Thayer) for dynamically visualizing these track-logs <locative.x-i.net/k_swf.html> in addition to making
use of the ‘Real-Time Riga’ application featured at RIXC’s Media Architecture festival in May 2004 <rixc.lv/03/realtime.html>.

To provide participants with a conceptual framework for conceiving of how to geo-annotate their physical environment Jo Walsh and Andrew Paterson
developed a semantic web model for creating ‘locative packets’ <locative.x-i.net/karosta/>. Based on this model, participants sampled local sights
and sounds, wove their interpretations into vignettes and uploaded the packets to a file server in order to create an interactive,
artist-generated map of the site --accessible via the Internet, but also designed to interface with mobile locative networking devices.

The workshop participants pondered techniques for the cultural appropriation of military technology (GPS) from within the decaying ruins of a
former military empire, perched on the edge of integration into a new regime (NATO & EU). With participants attending from as far a field as
Pyramid Lake Indian reservation in Nevada to Iceland and New Zealand, the workshop produced a diverse range of perspectives on this unique
location.

- -After weaving together local stories, recounted by K {AT} 2’s founders Carl Biorsmark & Kristine Briede, into a narrative structure, Ben Russell
developed a taxonomy of locative concepts based, amongst other thing, on traditional Latvian patterns.

- -Signe Pucena & Andrew Paterson stitched together samples of sound and image, inspired by the Russian Orthodox Cathedral at the centre of Karosta,
creating a linked pattern of bells, songs and myths from the life story of an old Babushka, daily military marches, and ghostly abandoned
apartment blocks.

- -Esther Polak, Ieva Auzina & Zaiga Putrama went to the East Latvian province of Latgale, to create GIS visualizations of disappearing farming
practices and the rural landscape.

- -In collaborative with local youths, Pete Gomes & Gabriel Lopez Shaw shot an experimental film in the gutted shells of Tzarist-era mansions.

- -R a d i o q u a l i a composed a short animation of satellite images of Karosta and conducted experiments in sending and receiving data to and
from a Linux based application for the Sharp Zaurus PDA.

- -Mari Keski-Korsu & Cheryl L'Hirondelle created film sequences of Karosta locations that used a split screen technique to suggest multiple
perspectives on a single place.

- -Kristin Bergaust created a short video piece contrasting similar Karosta locations in differing states of decay.

- -Marc Tuters shot time-lapse video of himself spray-painting walls of derelict bunkers as a play on the notion of geo-annotation.

- -Mika Meskanen worked on time-lapse sequences of locations around Karosta.

The workshop will continue to uploaded these and other annotated media files of Karosta to create an artist-generated map of the location,
accessible online as well as through a wireless client application for Java and Bluetooth-enabled "picture phones", in time for Riga’s RAM event
in 2004.

Indeed, the workshop's primary objectives were to _initiate future collaborative work_ in the field, on: developing tactics and methodologies for
locative media practice, exploring and prototyping interface metaphors, and articulating further flexible standards for collaborative
geo-annotation projects. The participants also began the process of generating ideas for the thematic structure of upcoming events, for which it
was determined that the workshop’s list-serve (locative {AT} x-i.net) would be maintained and opened-up as a forum for those interested in aesthetic
and philosophical issues around grassroots GIS.


- ---------------------------------------------------------------------
* ABOUT THE LOCATION *

Karosta, Latvian for 'war port', was built by order of the Russian Tzar
Alexander III as a military port in the Baltic region. After the Soviet occupation of Latvia, Karosta became a military base housing some 25,000
and was closed to civilians by a fortress wall was build all around the whole city. The Soviet army evacuated Karosta in 1994, following Latvian
independence, leaving behind some 6000 people. Mostly Russian speaking, the stateless citizens of Karosta either carry Latvian issued so-called
'alien' passports, or old Soviet ones.  Today the town appears to be a landscape of ruins. Many houses are completely destroyed, and the town is
plagued by mass unemployment. After and experience setting-up arts workshops there, documentary film-makers Kristine Briede & Carl Biorsmark began
making a film on Karosta and subsequently decided to step through the screen to "become documentary social workers" with the inauguration of the
K {AT} 2 Culture and Information Centre in December 2000.

Date: Tue, 22 Jul 2003 03:34:42 +1000
From: pia <pia.ednie-brown {AT} ems.rmit.edu.au>

INTIMATE DISTANCE: Liveness and Affect

Visiting Fellows Program, RMIT University
As part of the SIAL Graduate Certificate Program.
August 4th - 11th 2003.

Liveness is the sense of living presence. This often involves the
sense of a presence that is elsewhere, where actions are registered
simultaneously across different spaces (geographical, operational,
perceptual, disciplinary....). Today, related phenomena are
frequently tied up with the increasing perceptual sensitivity of
technological operations, often acting to animate objects and events
with new kinds of life-like power and complexity. This occurs in
quite literal ways through technological invention (such as the
proliferation of sensors, artificial intelligence systems etc) and
can be felt through the intensified variability, instability and
sensitivity of socio-cultural operations.

The SIAL Graduate Certificate program explores these conditions with
an emphasis on the production of closeness across geographic and/or
representational distance or, in other words, the sense of immediate,
intimate presence through remote means. Attention is focused on ways
that affective (qualitative, emergent) dimensions of events might be
transduced across distinct media, moments and spaces: how we allow
the openness of affectivity to survive (instrumental) shifts of
register.

INTIMATE DISTANCE: Liveness and Affect is a week long visiting
fellows program involving lectures, colloquium and workshops related
to the above issues. Workshop activity will predominantly be aimed at
developing an installation-event for October 2003:SKINS OF INTIMATE
DISTANCE ; surfacing unnatural histories being produced by the RMIT
SIAL Graduate Certificate program in partnership with Experimedia
(State Library of Victoria) and RMIT undergraduate students from
Fashion, Communications Design and Architecture.

Many of the events during the week will be open to the public through
webcam streaming. Links to the webcams and details of these events
