NYC0902 <> 	 

concept / drawings / visuals alexandra reill / 2002		 
the catastrophy of 11 / 09 / 01	 
seemed to be an eye-opening clash				
between the capitalist & the muslim	 
worlds. two completely different			
systems of society, economics	 			
& belief again opposing each other	 			
for philosophical & economic reasons.	 
NYC0902 relates to the 				
seemingly unending conflict				
as a war of the rich for				
power and capital and a war				
of the poor for equal rights,				
freedom of belief and 				
stable economics.				
it is a piece produced as 				
a consequence of NYC9202				
which was created in				
the beginning of 2002 				
when the shock occuring from				
the desctruction of the 				
world trade center and all				
its implications was still				
vividly alive. NYC0902 is 				
a direct transformation of the 				
piece produced then				
referring to actual sensual				
experiences relating to				
the state of our world				
one year after the catastrophy.				
too many truths are still 				
the same. the ongoing war 				
between the U.S. and the muslim world /				
recession / and environmental				
catastrophies have transformed 				
everybody's life in the 				
western world. images of poverty				
and suffering, of war and hunger				
cannot be erased from 				
anybody's mind. daily life				
is not the same any more. cannot				
believe in warfare but 				
definitely believes in 				
peaceful solutions and				
equal human rights 				
for everybody and				
every culture.

Subject: Movie on History of Open Source

REVOLUTION OS tells the inside story of the hackers who rebelled against
Microsoft and created GNU/Linux and the Open Source movement.

On June 1, 2001, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said "Linux is a cancer that
attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches."

Microsoft fears GNU/Linux, and rightly so. GNU/Linux and the Open Source &
Free Software movements arguably represent the greatest threat to
Microsoft's way of life. Shot in cinemascope on 35mm film in Silicon Valley,
REVOLUTION OS tracks down the key movers and shakers behind Linux, and finds
out how and why Linux became such a potent threat.

REVOLUTION OS features interviews with Linus Torvalds, Richard Stallman,
Bruce Perens, Eric Raymond, Brian Behlendorf, Michael Tiemann, Larry
Augustin, Frank Hecker, and Rob Malda. To view the trailer or the first
eight minutes go to the ifilm website for REVOLUTION OS.

Companies such as Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Ogilvy & Mather, OSDN, and
Dreamworks Animation have rented REVOLUTON OS for private theatrical
screenings. It has also screened in numerous film festivals including South
By Southwest Film Festival, the Atlanta Film & Video Festival, Boston Film
Festival, and Denver International Film Festival. REVOLUTION OS won Best
Documentary at both the Savannah Film & Video Festival and the Kudzu Film

REVOLUTION OS is available in the 35 mm motion picture format and runs 85

Linux: The Revolution on Film
By Steve Kettmann
2:00 a.m. Sep. 2, 2002 PDT

It's a little hard to imagine an über-geek like Linus Torvalds getting the
full-on rock-star treatment and having to urge an exuberant crowd to settle
down, but that was just what happened at the LinuxWorld trade show in August

"Calm down, calm down," Torvalds said, looking more like a Helsinki bus
driver just back from a satisfying ski vacation than a Finnish programmer
famous for writing the Linux kernel.

Given the importance of Linux and the open-source movement, the moment is
priceless. It and other glimpses of Torvalds are enough to make the
documentary film Revolution OS essential viewing for anyone who wants to
gain a deeper understanding of the people and ideas behind the open-source

"I called it Linux originally as a working name," Torvalds says. "I
initially thought I couldn't call it Linux in public because that was just
too egotistical, and that was before I had a big ego."

Torvalds is clearly the star, even when he's not on camera. That's fitting,
too, for the single most important figure behind an operating system with a
cultish following -- one that has inspired such wacky events as Linux beer
hikes in Bavaria, England's Lake District, Belgium and -- this week -- in
County Clare, Ireland.

There's plenty here for the serious Penguin-head, of course, but also a
thorough, useful primer for those with less background, starting with the
basics. One memorable scene has Torvalds explaining how to pronounce his
first name and that of his famous operating system: In Swedish and Finnish,
his name comes out sounding like Leee-nooos.

In English, it's pronounced like that of the thumb-sucking "Peanuts"
character with the security blanket. The operating system, he says, is
always pronounced with the first syllable rhyming with "in" -- although, in
fact, many in Europe -- where the OS was born -- say it with a long vowel.

J.T.S. Moore, the USC film-school grad who directed, wrote, produced, shot
and edited the film, started on the project in 1999 and took the approach of
"an outsider looking in," he explains at the film website.

The more he worked, the more he grew interested in the philosophical
underpinnings of the open-source movement, as embodied by GNU founder
Richard Stallman.

"Think of Richard Stallman as the great philosopher, and think of me as the
engineer," Torvalds said.
But elsewhere in the film, Torvalds somewhat rudely dismisses Stallman's
contention -- supported by neutral third parties -- that the system ought to
be called the GNU/Linux operating system, since it was Stallman's GNU
project, begun long before Torvalds wrote the Linux kernel, that made the
whole thing possible.

Moore deserves respect for providing this invaluable record.

Subject:  EXIT # 7 "Teamwork" New Issue

(September / October / November - 2002)
174 pages / 105 images colour & duotone.
Texts: Helena Cabello / Ana Carceller, Anna & Bernhard Blume, Jos=E9 =
Miguel G. Cort=E9s,
Manuel Santos, Barry Schwabsky, Rosa Olivares and Charles Green.
Main Artists: Anna & Bernhard Blume. Dossiers: Pierre et Gilles,
Bleda y Rosa, Jane & Louise Wilson, subREAL.
Published by Rosa Olivares & Associates (Madrid)

# Two eyes, yes, and sometimes two or more heads as well. In the recent =
history of art and the most contemporary photography, it is not unusual =
to encounter work carried out by duos, by trios or, let us say, by =
teams. Couples, some now historic, who develop or have developed a =
single body of work. Two who are one, such as Gilbert & George, "We say: =
We are one person", and who partially renounce an individual identity in =
order to create a different being, a different author.

Couples, most of them, who are sometimes relatives, sometimes lovers, or =
merely individuals who share common aesthetic interests. In some cases, =
they are only together for a brief period of time, and in others they =
stay together for a lifetime. Some of these teams have made their mark =
on art history by way of photography, as is the case with Bernd & Hilla =
Becher and Gilbert & George. Indeed, there are more artists who have =
opted to create in teams, and the areas of photography, video and film =
are those most often chosen by teams to develop their work.=20

In this issue, we will present some of them, with special attention to =
the work of Anna & Bernhard Blume, a now classic German photographer =
couple, whose work does not belong to any movement or follow any trends. =
The issue also features the work of Jane and Louise Wilson (commentary =
by Barry Schwabsky), Pierre et Gilles (Jos=E9 Miguel G. Cort=E9s), Bleda =
y Rosa (Manuel Santos), and subREAL (Rosa Olivares).

In addition to these protagonists, there are also reproductions by the =
following artists: Gilbert & George, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Clegg & =
Guttmann, AES+F Group, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Komar & Melamid, =
Theresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Guerrilla Girls, Helena Cabello / =
Ana Carceller, L.A. Raeven, Aziz + Cucher,  Rose Farrell & George =
Parkin, MP & MP Rosado Garc=E9s, Mike & Doug Starn, General Idea, Marina =
Abramovic & Ulay, G=F3mez Molina / Guillermo Lled=F3, Igor & Svetlana =
Kopystiansky, MacDermott & MacGough, Mabel Palac=EDn and Marc Viaplana, =
Pere Formiguera and Joan Fontcuberta, Atelier Morales, Pilar Albajar & =
Antonio Altarriba, Eva & Adele, among others.

Two main texts delve into the complexities of collaborative =
relationships and teamwork in contemporary art, and in photography-based =
art in particular. On the one hand is the essay by the Spaniards Helena =
Cabello / Ana Carceller, a couple of artists who have also produced =
significant writings on art, and on the other, as a coda to this number, =
is the text by the Australian professor and artist Charles Green, author =
of the book The Third Hand. Rosa Olivares' editorial and the customary =
index of artists complete this exploration of teamwork.

DIAN - Digital Interactive Artists' Network -
Our focus for the month of September is NORMA V TORAYA . We proudly
present her work:

"Crankbunny Full Installment One: Maquette"

Crankbunny is an internet/video project started to explore the nature
and future narrative structures, mostly non-linear storytelling. The
stories are structured around a progressive epic tale about the future.
A hazy future where cyborg-humans live in cities abandoned ? weird
organic urban landscapes mixed with sci-fi imploded techno. The human
evolution of emotion and constant interaction of technology - the
machine - is the theme. The "machine" is a quality that is enveloping
all of us more and more as we become part of the future.
Interactive web-based movie, 11 min.

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
work here:
