ap0202.01 release

longest day marks the release of glorious ap0202.01 beta . networked virtual
machine application for self-enacting code [artificial paradise project


ap0202.01 presents environment/code options for specialised access to
filesystems, local and global network data, midi data, video and audio
device input, as well as the range of unix devices. both vector and pixel
output are provided under SDL [using aalib, svga, fb or x] + full range of
available devices (eg. /dev/speech).

ap0202.01 compiles and runs under gnu/linux and is available under a GPL
license. both a core cellular vm app and cellspace viewer can be

ap0202.01 is involved in the evolution of the ap performance system and

ap is concerned with the liberation of data encoding and generation from any
given model or architecture (any fixed operating system in its widest sense)

ap02 presents a promiscuous model of data generation and self-display,
making use of a virtual machine architecture to develop and execute self
modifying instruction sets across networked nodes. Reconfigurable code is
interwoven with and determined by network and environmental data. Nodes
expand virally through diverse machine environments as they actively seek
for data across any network. The body of the work is code (material) and in
work this code is made evident, visible. The only functionality of ap02 is
in self display; showing its own changing, performative code as it runs.
ap02 is expressed within two interwoven projects; as physical self display
devices and as a freely available, distributed networked application.

ap0202 makes use of current de-centralized p2p (peer to peer)
inter-networking technologies to implement multiple self display devices
virtually on any networked machine. The environment for the changing code is
both the network and the machine on which the software is running. Cells of
code promiscuously modify and are modified by data available to the machine;
audio input and output, video, stored information and visual display. Code
cells communicate, split and join with other code cells both locally and
across the global network, working through a vast memory environment
composed of both data and code. ap0202 explores new models of cellular
coding of great use for future work, implementing flexible new instruction
sets and questioning the separation of data and environment from code.

ap0202 was developed as part of emare residency at v2_lab rotterdam with the
assistance of artem baguinski, stock and anne nigten. details of ap0202
physical self-display devices can also be found at:

Subject: Organization / Literature: Beyond Equivalence and Antinomy, CMS, Lancaster, UK, 7-9 July 2003 - Call for Papers

Apologies for Cross-posting - this is a call for papers for a
conference, not a net-event

Organization / Literature: Beyond Equivalence and Antinomy

A stream at the 3rd Critical Management Studies Conference ‘Critique
and Inclusivity: Opening the Agenda’, Lancaster, UK, 7-9 July 2003.

In recent years, writers on organization have increasingly been
turning their attention to the question of ‘writing’. Variously this
has taken the form of an enquiry into the nature of organizing as a
mode of inscription, the study of specific organizational texts, the
analysis of writing on organization, or the generalized application of
a textual metaphor to all things organizational. This broad textual
turn in organization studies inverts the previously assumed antinomy
between literature and social-scientific writing. In doing so
organization itself is reconfigured as a mode of inscription, and
writing on organization becomes a form of literary endeavour. From
being in a relationship of opposition, literature and organization
have thus moved to a position of undifferentiated equivalence, a
position equally as problematic as the traditional facile distinction
between fact and fiction.

This stream seeks an escape from this binary bind by reconsidering the
relationship between organization and literature more symmetrically.
To this end, the stream will emphasise both the organization of
literature and the literature of organization:

· The literature of organization. We encourage papers that eschew an
instrumental view of literary theory and instead seek a critical
engagement with ways of writing organization. As well as reconsidering
the literary conventions of academic writing on organization, this
move necessitates an opening onto literature itself as a force, not
simply as a resource to be plundered for new ideas about organizing
and managing.

· The organization of literature. We also encourage papers that
address the ways in which literature is organized.  Such papers might
include a socio-political analysis of publishing industries, for
example a discussion of the political economy of the Booker prize, or
prospect the similarities/differences between canonization processes
underlying best-sellers from Hamel and Prahalad to Harry Potter.

Within these two broad divisions, suggested themes include:
· The organization of publication
· The work of interpretation
· Technologies of writing – could we build a Literature Machine?
· History and literature – shifting canons
· The value of trash? Labours of division in the production of
· Literature as art, literature as method
· Conventions of academic writing
· Management science-fiction – writing the future of work
· Writing gender – inscribing bodies at work
· Autobiography and hagiography in the case study method
· A literature of ‘the other’ – postcolonial writing on organization
· When words are not enough – writing the unspeakable

We are particularly keen to encourage any papers that seek a critical
engagement with the field of literary theory, an encounter that has
the potential to inform ways of writing and organizing from a variety
of perspectives. For example, pursuing the debates surrounding
literary criticism will enable participants in the stream to reflect
upon the role of critique and the critic in the pursuit of a Critical
Management Studies. As well as addressing the conference theme of
inclusivity, this approach will enable a critical encounter with the
inscription and epistemology of organization and management.

Proposals for papers should be in the form of an extended abstract of
no more than 1500 words, to be submitted to the convenors by the 18th
October 2002. Selections will be made by 13th December 2002, with
full-length papers to be submitted by 15th April 2003.

Submissions and enquiries should be addressed in the first instance

Subject: call for proposals- cddc hosting project

  *please distribute
The Center for Digital Discourse and Culture <> 
(CDDC) in the College of Arts and Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute and State University is accepting proposals for hosting 
artistic, critical,  literary and other projects. *

The CDDC has been in operation since 1998, and it publishes hypertext 
journals, hosts digital research archives, and cooperates with many 
international cyberculture organizations.  

As an entirely digital point-of-publication, the CDDC is seeking from 
individuals and groups, proposals of artistic or academic merit for use 
of our server space. The main focus of the CDDC is to explore the new 
communicative potentials of hypertext, hypermedia, and web-centered 
publication. The review processes will be as extensive as those 
experienced in print academic outlets, but it too will be conducted in a 
fully on-line format.

Proposals should be approximately one page in length. They should 
explain the work, and, if possible, provide examples (current urls) of 
the work proposed. We imagine projects by individual digital artists or 
writers, groups of artists, reviewed or curated online display spaces or 
literary journals, and other unique endeavors will take advantage of 
this service, however it is open to nearly any enterprise with artistic 
or educational import as decided by our review committee. On average, 
each project can be allocated a considerable amount of space (i.e. 
around 50 MB, of web addressable server space, though both larger and 
smaller requests will be considered), accessible from an ftp account on 
the CDDC servers.

To propose a publication project, or to get more information, contact 
the Center for Digital Discourse and Culture at 

Q:How do I get free hosting for my online artistic/literary project at CDDC?
A:You have to submit a proposal first. That proposal then goes through a 
rigorous review process and once it is accepted, then you get free hosting.

Q:Do I have to pay for this?
A:There will be no charge for this service.

Q:Can I pay to have my materials hosted and bypass the process?
A:No, there is no way to bypass the review process and while we accept 
donations, they will have no affect upon the review process.

Q:I have an idea for a project, but the project is not finished,should I 
submit a proposal?
A:We would strongly prefer proposals about completed projects, but will 
entertain proposals about projects under construction. Projects not yet 
started are unlikely to make it through the review process.

Q:Can I put ads or other profit making tools in my area in cddc?
A: No, but it is conceivable that one could use these in a form of 
artistic expression, and that would be something that would go through 
the review process.

Q:Will the CDDC attempt to make profit off of my work, by placing ads, etc.?

Q:Do you provide DNS resolution?
A:We are looking into it, but we know of several free services that can 
resolve to our servers and do provide virtual hosting on those servers 
as long as some mention of CDDC support is made on the front page or a 
sponsors page.

Q:I represent a group of artists and we would like to create a site and 
review the work that we want on that site, could that be hosted on CDDC?
A:Yes, we are happy to provide this service to a group of people 
maintaining on ongoing or permanent exhibition space. However, we would 
suggest a slightly larger proposal 2-3 pages that includes URL's to the 
types of work that your group supports and would include. This proposal 
will then be reviewed and if it is accepted, your group will be
given a space. <>

Subject: call for exhibition proposals

Hello folks,

I'm putting together an exhibition of for New Langton Arts, 
an experimental art gallery in San Francisco, CA, for Fall 2002. This 
exhibition, 'Day Jobs', is described below and explores the 
relationship between a net.artist's digital day job to their 
art-making activities.
- ------------
A NetWork exhibition at New Langton Arts

This exhibition explores the relationship between and its 
social and economic context through case studies of individual 
net.artists' day jobs in relation to their art, rather than the more 
common art-historical or museological approach. This exhibition 
examines the conditions of practice as a way into a genre. Digital 
media artists have less of an economic base in art sales, and often 
work in the same digital media by day for income as well as by night 
as an artist. This situates digital artists between art and a 
relatively new industry, as well as between their eerily similar day 
and night activities, creating a kind of interference pattern that is 
largely unexplored. This pattern is reflected in the art works, but 
also, just as interestingly, in the day job projects of these 
curators, programmers, and web-designers, often quite consciously. 
This exhibition will look at a few of the more interesting cases, 
taken from varied environments, and line up the art next to the day 
job project as a way of uncovering how these new social, 
intellectual, or economic patterns are influencing our art and the 
rest of our lives.
- -----------
I have a couple of people in mind for this show, but I'm writing to 
you all to ask if you know of other artists who may present good 
examples in this area - or if you yourself find yourself working in 
this way. Ideally I would like to be able to exhibit an artist's next to projects they work on at their day job, and with the 
help of the artist, try to make clear how themes, rebellions, or even 
subconscious aesthetic decisions about information architecture or 
programming may cross-over between the two. They need not be new 

I'm preferentially looking for artists working in California; but 
that's not an unbreakable rule. So, if you are working in this area 
or know of others who are, please contact me at this email address 
within the next week or so. Thank you very much,

      The Emergence of Romantic Relationships Online
      A Sociological Web Study

      Why are people actually searching for romantic relationships online?
What is the difference between personal relationships emerging in cyberspace
and in real life? Does the internet appear to be the new institution, where
partner relationships emerge, develop and dissolve - beside traditional
institutions like workplace, school and disco? Our research object was the
biggest online dating service in Switzerland ( with
more than 70'000 profiles ("virtual identities"). A total of 4110 German
speaking users of this site took part in a sociological web survey,
answering questions about their experience with online dating. The primary
goal of our team was to examine well known scientific controversies about
the real nature of romantic relationships in internet. Statistical data
concerning attitudes, expectations and motivations of people going online
have given us heuristic insight into the mechanisms that allow the emergence
of online relationships: how often and how fast can romantic relationships
emerge? Which types of persons are most likely to find and build up such
ties in cyberspace? Where are the borderlines between online and offline

      Our main assumption ("The cyberspace has a growing importance as a
place where one can find his partner with increasing probability") has been
clearly confirmed. As many as 23% of respondents reported to have found
long-term love relationships at "" and half of those
relationships still existed at the time of the survey. Moreover, 71% of the
people who succeeded in establishing a love relationship considered her or
his partner to be "the right one". Among those who reported having a love
relationship online 12 % had already "virtually" fallen in love by the sheer
exchange of email messages - that means without having ever met each other
in real life. Falling in love actually happened after the first email for 4%
of all successful online daters.

Net Art and Meta-Design: Collaboration and Co-Creation

There is a development in art that seems to have some overlap with a =
meta-design approach to interaction. An analysis of case studies from =
the field of interactive art highlights a relationship between =
authorship and intersubjectivity-in terms of a relation between creation =
and design-that takes place in interactive art and that is particularly =

This relationship raises a number of questions: How do these systems =
sustain the processes that lead to intersubjective creativity? How can =
collaboration lead to co-creation? On the basis of what initial =
conditions and interactive properties is co-creation experienced? What =
interactive strategies (in terms of motivations and mechanisms) and =
interaction rules are used? Finally, what kind of activities does the =
interface allow users to perform?

Through an analysis of different typologies and qualities of both =
interactivity and agency, exploited within some artistic collaborative =
systems, my work addresses issues at the convergence between aesthetics =
and HCI. Such issues raise fundamental philosophical questions, and can =
contribute to the development of a meta-design culture and practice.

Digital Arts and Culture::2003
MelbourneDAC::streaming wor(l)ds
The 2003 iteration of the Digital Arts and Culture (DAC) 
international conference series is to be held on the city campus of 
RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia from May 19 to 23, 2003.

MelbourneDAC:streaming wor(l)ds will bring together an international 
cohort of artists, practitioners, developers, theorists and teachers 
to define and explore major themes and ideas confronting contemporary 
new media practice. The 2003 event will explore the theory and 
practice of computer gaming, ergodic narrative, distributed and/or 
immersive performance environments, and streaming media with a 
particular focus on the real, imagined and wished for worlds that 
these things create.

[what is the Digital Arts and Culture conference?]
DAC was founded in 1998 by Espen Aarseth as an international 
conference focusing on new media theory and practice in critical 
contexts. DAC seeks to bring together new media artists and theorists 
in a spirit of collaboration and exploration. It has nurtured a 
significant international community of young and innovative 
researchers, artists and scholars in the interdisciplinary field of 
new media, and has become the benchmark conference for research and 
collaborative endeavour in new media. DAC offers a forum that 
recognises the importance of bringing together leading practitioners 
from art and theory for the exchange of ideas and to develop 
international professional networks and knowledge economies. 
MelbourneDAC:streaming wor(l)ds intends to continue this role through 
the papers, panels, forums, and exhibition it hosts, and the 
innovative series of collaborative workshops and events that will be 
undertaken by all conference participants. The mission of 
MelbourneDAC is to exchange ideas and promote new developments in 
digital arts and culture and to ensure that all participants develop 
relevant and sustainable professional communities.

A call for papers will be distributed shortly.

A call for entries for the MelbourneDAC::streaming wor(l)ds 
exhibition will be distributed shortly.

All conference material will be published (all participants will 
receive their copy during MelbourneDac).

A mentoring process will be available to postgraduate students and 
new academics who wish to have feedback in the development of their 

A moderated announcement list for all interested in receiving 
additional information and updates is available. Subscription details

problèmes techniques avec mon système de questionnaire pendant et après
l'expérience. Faute de mieux, j'ai aussi du utiliser un serveur commercial
qui dégoulinait de publicités, et cela a du dégoûter pas mal d'entre vous,
désolé! Ce n'est plus le cas maintenant. Bref, c'est la dernière fois que je
vous embêterai avec mon enquête, alors s'il vous plait, prenez quelques
instants pour donner votre sentiment sur l'expérience: , cliquer sur "Poietic Generator". Vous pouvez
le faire que vous participiez ou non à la session de mardi. Il suffit
d'avoir déjà participé à une session du GP.

Les résulats de l'enquête sont publiés sur le site. Vous pourrez repérer
immédiatement vos réponses anonymes et les comparer à celles des autres
grâce au code figurant au dessus de la colonne de droite de la première
matrice : c'est le vôtre. J'imagine que cela pourra intéresser certains
d'entre vous!?

Merci d'avance pour votre aide.

Elisa Giaccardi.



I would like to announce a new session of real-time collective graphic
interaction of the Poietic Generator on: Tuesday 25 June 2002 from 8.00AM to
9.00AM (Boulder Time) - that means from 2.00PM to 3.00PM (UTC/GMT). Pay
attention to the new URL:

The latest GP session went very well, but we had some technical problems
with our questionnaire system both during and after the session. Moreover,
for want of anything better, I had used a commercial server so full of
advertising, sorry! This is not any longer the case. This is the last time I
will bother you, so please don't forget to fill my questionnaire in. Go to: and click on "Poietic Generator". You can
complete the questionnaire whether or not you are a new or previous
participant to the GP, and even if you won't participate in this session! It
will take just few ticks...

The results of this investigation are published on the website. You will be
able to locate your anonymous answers immediately and to compare them with
those of the others, thanks to the code appearing at the top of the column
on the right side of the first matrix. Maybe it will interest some among

Thank you kindly for your participation.

Permettetemi di annunciare una nuova esperienza di interazione grafica
collettiva in tempo reale del Generatore Poietico: Martedì 25 Giugno 2002
dalle 16.00 alle 17.00 ora italiana, vale a dire dalle 14.00 alle 15.00 GMT.
Mi raccomando, fate attenzione al nuovo indirizzo:

L'ultima sessione del Generatore Poietico è andata molto bene, ma abbiamo
avuto alcuni problemi tecnici con il nostro sistema per il questionario sia
durante sia dopo la sessione. Inoltre, in mancanza di meglio, avevo
utilizzato un server commerciale sorprendentemente pieno di pubblicità,
scusate! Non è più così. Questa è l'ultima volta che vi annoio, pertanto vi
prego di non dimenticare di rispondere al mio questionario. Andate su: e cliccate "Poietic Generator". Potete
rispondere sia che voi siate nuovi o abituali partecipanti al Generatore
Poietico, e anche se non parteciparete a questa sessione! Vi costerà solo
pochi minuti...

I risultati di questa ricerca sono pubblicati sul sito. Potrete localizzare
le vostre risposte anonime immediatamente e confrontarle con quelle degli
altri grazie al codice che apparirà in cima alla colonna di destra nella
prima matrice. Forse può interessare qualcuno di voi!?

Vi ringrazio in anticipo per la vostra partecipazione.
