Intensive, an ultimate scene
web project on contemporary italian photography

http://www.iper.net/intensive                   intensive {AT} iper.net

Intensive, una scena ultimativa, mette in contatto artisti che, pur con
modalità diverse,  operano attraverso l'utilizzo di materiali fotografici e
che con la loro produzione hanno più volte ribadito la loro radicale
posizione  nei confronti dell'opera e della sua "collocazione". Il
tentativo è quello di costituire un luogo d'incontro e di confronto, un
laboratorio condiviso privo di mediazioni in cui per la prima volta si
confrontano organicamente le diverse esperienze, individuando uno spazio
comune nel quale rendere possibile ciò che nella realtà è divenuto sempre
più difficile o problematico.

Intensive, an ultimate scene, connects one to the other artists that, we
different approaches, apply photography. Through their production these
artists have stressed more than once their radical position for what the
artwork and its collation are concerned. On an ideal framework they have
singled out a common space that makes possible whatever in our reality
became more and more difficult. Their attemptive is to build up a place for
meetings and exchange of viewpoints, a shared workshop free from any
mediation, where, for the first time, various experiences can be
sistematically compared.

We are writing to invite Nettime to participate in and contribute to the
MEDIA CHANNEL, a new non-profit global supersite.  The Media Channel is
a non-profit public service website dedicated to reporting on and
engaging with the mass media worldwide.  As we envision it, this site
will offer a 'one-stop-shop' for all those concerned about the media:
journalists, broadcasters, producers, writers, as well as artists,
activists, teachers, and students.  Our aim is to provide a forum for a
lively discussion from diverse perspectives.  The Media Channel will be
a gateway to information from journalists, critics, and scholars, as
well as arts organizations, galleries, museums, and academic
institutions, from around the world.

At the Media Channel, we strongly believe that the arts are a vital part
of our cultural Conversation about the media that, more and more, are
molding our sense of ourselves and the world we live in.  Thus, we're
proud to feature the noted curator, critic, and writer Robert Atkins as
curator of the Media Arts section of the Media Channel.  "The Media
Channel regards art as another medium in the age of mass media,' says
Atkins, "part of what the German philosopher Hans Magnus Enzensberger
would call the 'consciousness industry.'  If you're interested in the
mass media, we're betting you'll be Interested in the unique ways media
artists Engage with crucial questions about the relationship between our
society and the media."

The Media Channel will launch this fall.  The web address will be

The Media Channel will be part of, and will be promoted by, the UK-based
OneWorld Online (www.oneworld.org), which offers a broad-ranging,
multilingual news service that receives millions of hits weekly and
features aggregated content from partner groups worldwide.  The
organizations benefit from OneWorld's global distribution platform and
marketing reach.

We have been to your site and are impressed with the content you are
offering.  We would like to link to your site, call attention to your
work, and drive traffic to your pages.  Our partners at OneWorld have
done this successfully over the last five years for hundreds of
organizations and media outlets.  Many groups have joined because they
get more hits and visibility internationally, others because it is a
good way to network and stay informed about what others in their field
are doing and thinking.  Think of the Media Channel as one more way to
connect your content to the world, a powerful new distribution platform
as well as an on-line community.

Already many prominent media organizations will be participating in the
Media Channel, including: the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting
Freedom in Britain, Columbia Journalism Review, FST-Finnish Public
Broadcasting, Fairness And Accuracy In Reporting, Nigeria's Media Rights
Agenda, the Benton Foundation, Harvard's Nieman Reports, the Malaysian
media reform group Aliran Kesedaran Nedgara, MediaSpace, le Monde
diplomatique, Freedom Forum, the Arabic Media Internet Network, and the
Media Institute of Southern Africa.

The Media Channel is a non-profit project of The Global Center, an
IRS-certified educational foundation, and OneWorld Online, a non-profit
venture of England's OneWorld Broadcasting Trust. It is being produced
by Globalvision New Media in cooperation with an international team of
media professionals, journalists, scholars, artists, and critics.

Please let us know if you will take part in the Media Channel.  We will
send you more information when we hear from you.

Trademark™ has opened their interactive web site, www.u-frame.nl,
containing a system that allows webusers to make do-it-yourself 3-D
icons created from a collection of over 1000 images.

The U-Frame is a deep wooden frame designed to hold up to 6 transparent
gels. Trademark™ has put together an extensive image bank of thousands
of hand-worked gels - featuring patterns, colors, photographs, and other
visual elements - for use in the U-Frame. Each image is unique and can
only be used once.

The artistic project foundation, Trademark™, developed U-Frame in
response to their curiosity about how people relate to the constant
flood of media images. U-Frame trials at Kunst Rai art fair in Amsterdam
revealed that users found themselves confronted with and openly
discussing ideas that transcended the images at hand.

Trademark™ is a foundation with artists, critics, philosophers, and
designers working together on innovative projects in the worlds of art,
art criticism, and the art market. Past activities include Art on
Request, a form for customized art, as well as The People's Choice, an
exhibition about art for the people held in 1997 at Rotterdam's Kunsthal
in collaboration with Komar & Melamid.
