more info below and on

entrance is free, but please make reservations on


Luuk Bouwman graduated from the St. Joost Academy, (Breda, the Netherlands)
in 2000, having specialized in audio-visual arts. His graduation projects
were the "Criminorama of Darker Oss - 4000 years of senseless violence" - a
miniature crime museum, and 'Huge Harry and the Institute of Artificial
Art' - a documentary that suggested that from now on, art production should
be automated. He also worked as a program maker for Waskracht!, a TV program
of the Dutch broadcaster VPRO. started as his personal videolog, an extended version of the
conventional weblog that integrates streaming video-files with a time-based
travel diary. In the last year, he traveled through South-America for 6
months with a camera and laptop.
Tropisms 2, that is currently being developed, will be the collective
videolog of an international group of young filmmakers.

Florian Schneider is working as author, net activist, film maker and movie
producer. He is a member of n.s.i.a.m.p., which is a small group of
activists, artists, filmmakers, fotographers from Germany and abroad. They
have organised [cross the border] at the Hybrid WorkSpace of the Documenta X
in Kassel. Their central political struggle is to support migrants and
refugees, documented or undocumented, in their fights for the right to live,
where they like and how they like. Over the last years Schneider is
concentrating on the question, how communicational leadership and dominant
positions can be attacked and undermined by a practical criticism of borders
and networks. He is co-organisor of the 'No One is Illegal' and the 'Cross
the Border' campaigns as well as of the 'Was Tun?' project, an digital
information platform for contemporary aktivism and transnational networks of
protest. His recent video documentary 'A World to Invent' explores the ideas
of four philosophers (a.o. Antonio Negri and Michael Hart) on antiglobalism.

Subject: 1000 Platitudes / 33QPM

Hi Ted (and other nettimers in NYC),

Please find attached the promo for my upcoming exhibition in NYC, --would
love to meet you there. The exhibition includes my first large-scale photo

SHOW DATES: 3 Apr 03 - 10 May 03
Bitforms Gallery
529 west 20th street

All the best,




SHOW DATES: 3 Apr - 10 May 2003

For the past twelve years Lozano-Hemmer has been developing interactive art
installations that seek to create connective, social and performative
experiences. His "Relational Architecture" series of large-scale
interventions in public spaces has deployed new technologies and custom-made
interfaces to transform urban environments. Using robotics, real-time
computer graphics, film projections, positional sound, internet links, cell
phones, video and ultrasonic sensors, and other devices, his pieces aim to
reconnect the public sphere with an increasingly alienating urban condition.
This is his first show in a NYC gallery.
"1000 Platitudes": A photomontage and video project featuring words commonly
used to describe the generic globalized city. Each letter of the alphabet
was projected on a different building using the World's most powerful
projector (with 100,000 ANSI lumen intensity and images measuring up to
250x250 feet). Public housing projects, shopping malls, government
buildings, industrial wastelands and corporate headquarters were transformed
by fast tactical projections, under the radar of potential regulators. This
project was made during Lozano-Hemmer's "Huge and Mobile" (HUMO) Workshop in
Linz, Austria, in early 2003.

"33 Questions per Minute, Relational Architecture 5": Consists of a computer
program that uses grammatical rules to combine words from the dictionary,
automatically generating 55 billion unique, fortuitous questions. The
automated questions are presented at a rate of 33 per minute ‹the threshold
of legibility‹ on 21 tiny liquid crystal displays. The software has been
programmed to avoid repeating the same question, and will take over 3
thousand years to present all the possible word combinations. A keyboard
allows participants to add their own questions to the automatic flow.

 <>  <>  <> 
IV. Bauhaus Kolleg 2002 / 2003
I N V I T A T I O N 

Dear Dot.City Citizens,

We cordially invite you to the final presentation of the 2nd trimester IV
Bauhaus Kolleg Dot.City "urban currencies".

April 16th 2003, 3:00 p.m. Bauhaus Kolleg Studio 329

The second trimester of the Dot.City year examined the interdependency of ICT
technology and public spheres in the shrinking cities of East Germany.

Our particular focus was the evaluation and interpretation of urban currencies.
Conveying a wide range between complementary monetary systems and the
development of new narratives for social exchange, we will propose strategies
to connect distinct local patterns with chance created by ICT. 

Our starting point was the exploration of the "social capital" within the city.
We asked: Which kind of values could emerge by triggering new local networks
and complementary currency systems. We interpreted "urban currencies" as a way
to communicate and exchange local values. For example, the skills of unemployed
and elderly people or vacant lots without any demand on the real-estate market,
how could these resources be reactivated within the community? 

How can one use them and create a purpose that leads to an identification
within the urban sphere? What other forms of value - apart from money - could
exist? Our projects propose infrastructures based on IC (or conventional
technology) as well as surprising and unexpected applications of ICT within
urban processes.

On April 16th we would like to present our working methods, experiences and
actual results. The afternoon will start at 3:00 p.m. with a brief introduction
and presentation, and continue with a real-life experience on site (a bus tour
through the city of Dessau), ending with a gathering for food and wine on the
dance floor!

Participants in Dessau:

Subject: Presentation Reckless Eyes- 7th of April at Waag Society


Playing Field presentation: Reckless Eyes -  by Kirk Woolford
Monday 7 April, 18.30 hr, Theatrum Anatomicum, De Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, 
Free entry, reservation not necessary.
English spoken.

"Reckless Eyeballing" is a concept familiar to most Americans. It is most 
infamous for its use by the pre-civil rights courts to punish and imprison 
black men for looking at white women. However, it is still used for any 
form aggressive or inappropriate gaze, especially when a person without 
power dares to look a person with power directly in the eye. Nowadays 
countless camera's are watching us in the streets: inappropriate or 
appreciated gazes are facilitated by modern technologies.

Kirk Woolford is playing with the idea of 'Reckless eyes' and uses the 
concept in a game for two players who can see through each others eyes, 
using modern technology. The players wear a head-mounted mini-camera and 
carry a PDA (handheld computer) with a wireless network card. Using radio 
transmitters and streaming technology the gaze of one player is displayed 
on the PDA of the other player and vice versa. With these 'Reckless eyes' 
the players influence each others behaviour.

Kirk Woolford developed 'Reckless Eyes' for Playing Field, the 
international streaming media art project initiated by the Netherlands 
Media Art Institute. Waag Society is the appropriate place to present this 
project. Waag Society has an open wireless network and is connected to 
Gigaport broadband internet. Kirk Woolford will give a presentation about 
the development of 'Reckless eyes' and the dancers will give a 
demonstration geven. This demonstration will be broadcasted live on

Playing Field is sponsored by the Culture 2000 programme of the European 
Commission, the Thuiskopiefonds and Stichting XS4ALL. The project 'Reckless 
Eyes' is sponsored by De Waag Society and Babel Media.
