Reading at Remote!

Portraits at Other Sides:

Tuesday, July 15th at Remote Lounge, 327 Bowery above 2nd St.  Doors will
open at 7pm, the event will start at 7:30.  There is a $5 cover.

The readers are:

Samuel Delany
Alan Sondheim
Rob Stephenson
Tom Zummer
Ellen Zweig

Portraits From Other Sides:

Rob Stephenson presents an evening of text, sex, video, a philosophical
dog, and maybe robots with Ellen Zweig, Alan Sondheim, Tom Zummer and
special guest Samuel R. Delany.

Remote Lounge is a revolutionary new concept in nightlife entertainment.
Located in downtown Manhattan, it is a technology-themed cocktail lounge
and new media art space unlike anything else in the world. The lounge is
outfitted with over 60 video cameras - covering every square foot of the
space from multiple angles - and this live video is displayed on over 100
output devices, such as CRTs, LCDs, large format plasma screens and video
projectors. Into this mix of live feeds are an ever-changing roster of
digital and analog video artworks, animation, special effects, web-based
art and interactive multimedia created by both emerging and established
new media artists.

Samuel R Delany is a writer and literary critic. Delany is best known for
writing extensively in the mainstream science fiction and fantasy genres.
He has won four Nebula Awards.  The best-selling novel. Dhalgren, has sold
over a million copies.  He is also the author of a number of fictional and
autobiographical works that include references to extreme aspects of human
sexuality.  His most recent novel is The Madman.

Tom Zummer studied philosophy under Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida,
and is an artist and curator.  "Zummer's uncanny portraits of robots are
beautiful and out of this world.  He is also a theorist, book designer,
professor, and comic art novelist, Zummer's artistic talents are as
eclectic as they are numerous."  The Austin Chronicle

Alan Sondheim is a writer/multimedia theorist (editor of Being On Line).
Alan is a poet and critic who writes on and about the Internet.  His books
include Disorders of the Real, and the anthology Being on Line.  He
co-moderates several email lists, including Fiction of Philosophy,
Cybermind, and Cyberculture.  He was also virtual writer-in-residence for
the trAce (sic) online writing community at the beginning of this year; he
worked on a number of collaborative projects at The Lost Project at trAce,
and his trAce projects are collected in their Writers-in-Residence

Ellen Zweig is an artist who works with video, audio, installation and
performance.  Her most recent work is the video series, HEAP, a collection
of experimental portraits of Westerners who have studied, invented,
misunderstood and loved China.  "(tongue tongue stone) G. W. Leibnitz"
premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, 2003.  In her
installations, Zweig has used optics to create camera obscuras, video
projection devices, and miniature projected illusions.  She has also
created multi-channel video installations that have toured the US (museums
include: New Mexico Museum of Fine Art in Santa Fe, List Center for the
Visual Arts at MIT, Scottsdale Center for the Arts, P.S. 1 in New York).

Rob Stephenson's writing has been published both on and offline in a wide
variety of publications, recently including the Blithe House Quarterly,
Dangerous Families, Velvet Mafia, Please Records, and Perspectives on Evil
and Human Wickedness.  He designs a continuing series of chapbooks that
feature his poetry, essays, stories, artwork, and photography.  Some of
his short films were shown at the International Film Festival in Seoul
Korea this year.  His drawings have been exhibited at the Intersection Art
Gallery in San Francisco, the Headlands Center for the Arts, the Katona
Museum, and the Wexner Museum.

LAUNCH OPTION berlin at BüroFriedrich OPEN ARCH
Opsound | Rocket Shop
Miles Chalcraft
Dan Belasco Rogers

22 - 26 Juli 2003

Artists and Musicians Remix and Remap Berlin at BüroFriedrich
As summer tourists are making their way through Berlin with guidebooks in
hand, LAUNCH OPTION berlin offers alternate models for exploring the city
which are guaranteed to hold new discoveries even for Berliners who know the
city inside and out. In a 5-day festival of live performances, exhibitions
and events at BüroFriedrich from 22 to 26 July, 2003 Opsound, Miles
Chalcraft, Dan Belasco Rogers and range of guest performers will create a
landscape of sights and sounds ­ an audible, aerial, diagrammatic ³map² of
Berlin and its human networks.

Berlin Sounds! Rocket Launches! GPS Mapping!
LAUNCH OPTION berlin is a test site and data gathering center, a 5-day event
devoted to discovering, collecting, playing, remixing and listening to the
sounds & noises of Berlin and to exploring the urban landscape through a
range of visualization technologies. The aim is to investigate the city in a
manner, which mirrors scientific information gathering but which is
emphasizes the personal nature of discovery and urban experience. Artists
and guests will be collecting sounds, aerial footage and GPS-generated maps,
which will then be processed, reused or remixed in the mission control
center at BüroFriedrich. Visitors are invited to review the ³findings² and
listen to live performances in the exhibition space.

Schedule of performances and events:

Berlin Sound ­ ShareWare

Opsound, a project by the New York artist Sal Randolph, creates a temporary
gift economy of sounds inspired by Berlin, a network of exchange modeled
after the free software and open source software communities. Through an
open call, musicians and sound artists are invited to submit their sounds to
the Opsound Internet pool and/or perform live at BüroFriedrich. All sounds
are welcome ‹ from field recordings of Oranienstrasse to the music of
underground punk bands, techno tracks and experimental audio files lurking
on hard drives. Opsound wants to know what Berlin sounds like: Berlin real,
Berlin virtual, Berlin dreamt and desired. Sounds, samples and recordings
from the Opsound pool will be used and sampled by LAUNCH OPTION berlin DJs
and sound artists in live performances and additional sound pool
submissions. Visitors to the gallery listening salon and Opsound pool
( alike are encouraged to contribute, listen and take away
sound tracks for their personal use or listening pleasure.

Through Opsound LAUNCH OPTION berlin not only creates a free marketplace
music and sound; but through the exchange of sounds, meetings between
artists and ³discoveries² of the listeners, the social infrastructure
associated with the Berlin soundscape is activated. New pathways for
information, collaborations and networks are generated; this creative
process forms the basis of Randolph¹s interest in social architecture as an
art form. 

Remapping Berlin
Throughout LAUNCH OPTION berlin the artists Miles Chalcraft and Dan Belasco
Rogers will actively pursue the mapping and imaging the city in conjunction
with the developing compilation of sounds. With daily launches of his
specially designed hobby rockets equipped with video cameras, Miles
Chalcraft will document selected areas of the city from the air. Footage of
each launch performed at an undisclosed time and location will be exhibited
at Büro Friedrich on the following day. Chalcraft will use BüroFriedrich as
his flight center and rocket maintenance area. With his personal GPS
equipment Dan Belasco Rogers will continue mapping of his daily routes
throughout the city and will use BüroFriedrich as his point of departure and
processing center. His maps and routes will be available for viewing in the
gallery and on the Internet. Chalcraft¹s launches and Belasco¹s walks will
be documented in field recordings, which will be added to the Opsound pool.

Both Chalcraft and Rogers have personalized and adapted specific
technologies to reflect their individual urban experience. Belasco¹s maps
function as daily cartographic journal entries or drawings of the paths
taken on his daily route through Berlin. The lines of the GPS-generated maps
sketch but do not perfectly correspond to the layout of streets and official
thoroughfares of the city. Miles Chalcraft¹s rockets function as tiny,
quasi-private monuments to a specific site and place. The small video probe
generates often impressionistic and painterly images of seemingly ordinary
sites and remote locations.

Remixing the Landscape
Through the use of a range of technologies from digital recordings to hobby
rockets  LAUNCH OPTION berlin takes samples from various aspects of the
Berlin geography and reworks them into visual and audio compositions. The
sound permeating the exhibition will serve as an enviroment for the images
of the city, and the images will create new associations for the sound. The
result of such recombinations and layerings may not be a concretely
recognizable “map³ of the city but will convey the associative cartography
of different personal routes and stops in the process of traversing the
urban landscape.


LAUNCH OPTION berlin is powered by Rocket Shop.

In conjunction with OPEN LAUNCH berlin Rocket Shop will launch ROCKET SOUND
­ a largely virtual label hosted on the Internet ­ with a limited edition CD
of selected sounds collected over the course of the event.

July 2-2003: What's Hot?



    Across the USA, from East to West along Parallel 36th: an overview of
the construction of the American myth...
- -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    It was while thinking about the way in which distances are calculated,
after having finished Le Sixième Monde, that I started to wonder how long it
would take to travel one degree. The degree of longitude determines (more or
less) the hour at which we live our lives and its distance depends on its
latitude, a degree of latitude is always of the same distance. This
flexibility allows a certain amount of play to come into calculations of
time distance and speed, without involving quantum physics, and this play
seemed to be an appropriate manner in which to follow the didacticism of. Le
Sixième Monde, both insofar as they concern travel and the relativity of the
definition of reality. This relativity is at the heart of the meaning of
images, of representation of the reality which is fundamental to documentary

     The other side of the work which I am involved in concerns the
constraints and the manipulation of generic codes in the cinema, which has
been to a large extent determined by the history of American cinema, even
though I am a European, working in Europe. Cinematic genres play an
essential role in the fabrication of the mythology, which goes so far in its
contribution to the American psyche, and our image of the United States.

     During the months of July and August 2003, then later as the project
develops, this site proposes a log in "real" time as the more developed
stages of scouting out sequences emerge.

David Kidman

    Traverser les États-Unis d'Est en Ouest, au long du 36ème parallèle : un
regard sur la construction du mythe américain...
- -----------------------------------------------------------------------
     C'est en pensant à la façon dont les distances sont calculées, après
avoir achevé « Le Sixième Monde », que j'ai commencé à me demander combien
de temps prendrait de se déplacer le long d'un degré de longitude. Le degré
de longitude détermine approximativement les heures qui rythment nos vies,
sa distance au voisin dépendant de sa latitude, un degré de latitude gardant
toujours la même distance à son autre. Cette flexibilité confère une
certaine part de variation aux évaluations de temps, de distance et de
vitesse - sans pour autant convoquer la physique quantique, - variable dont
il semblait salutaire de suivre la didactique comme pour « Le Sixième monde
» ; car ces deux projets touchent au voyage et à la relativité de la
définition du réel.
     On trouve cette relativité au coeur même du sens des images et de la
représentation de la réalité, cette dernière donnée étant fondamentale pour
qui prétend faire de la recherche documentaire.

     L'autre versant du travail dans lequel je me suis engagé concerne les
contraintes et la manipulation des codes génériques au cinéma, qui furent
jusqu'ici largement déterminés par l'histoire du cinéma américain, ceci y
compris pour un européen ou pour qui travaille en Europe.
     Qu'il s'agisse des représentations intérieures ou extérieures aux
Etats-Unis, les genres cinématographiques jouent un rôle essentiel dans la
fabrication de la mythologie américaine.

     Courant les mois de juillet et d'août 2003 et après, selon le
déroulement du projet, ce site propose un carnet de route en temps réel, au
fil de l'élaboration des séquences.

Subject: ISEA revised symposia guidelines



The series of symposia known as the International Symposium on
Electronic Art was initiated in 1988 to create and maintain an
international network of organizations and individuals active in the
field of electronic arts. In 1990 this network took shape as an
association, founded in The Netherlands, called the Inter-Society for
the Electronic Arts (ISEA).

ISEA was established to oversee the continuance of the symposia and each
symposium promotes the aims and objectives of the Inter-Society:  the
event and the society are therefore mutually supportive. Both ISEA and
the Symposium are dedicated to the interdisciplinary and cross-cultural
communication/cooperation between the arts and the fields of technology,
science, education, and industry. Beyond its integral support of the
symposium ISEA also realizes its mission by supporting other events,
developing partnerships, implementing culturally diverse initiatives, as
well as through publishing and archiving. ISEA is committed to
collaboration, membership participation, and the creation of new work.

The aims of the Inter-Society and of the ISEA symposia are

- - the promotion of communication between organizations and individuals
active in the field of the electronic arts

- - the creation of a structured approach towards the problems and
potentials of electronic art.

- - the promotion of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural
communication/cooperation between the arts and the fields of technology,
science, education, and industry.

- - research, presentation and exhibition of work related to ISEAís mission.

For information on previous ISEA symposia, please see the ISEA website:


Submissions will be accepted from:

Category 1: (Educational) institutes (universities, art schools, museums
etc.), (artistic, cultural or scientific) organizations, government
bodies, etc;

Category 2*: Congress organizing bureaus;

Category 3**: Umbrella organizations created for the purpose of hosting
an ISEA Symposium.

*Category 2 applicants must be able to demonstrate evidence of
organizing earlier, comparable and successful events.

**Category 3 applicants must show evidence of support and thus prove the
feasibility of their financial plan.


All candidates are strongly advised to carefully read through the
recently revised "Guidelines for Symposium Host Candidates" on the ISEA
website at <> before they

Corporal Literacy Symposium

A workshop/panel in the Conference: MULTILITERACIES: THE CONTACT ZONE
2003 International AILA Conference on Literacy

What is it about?

Maaike Bleeker:

New developments in a variety of disciplines -  ranging from 
philosophy to medicine to cognitive science - argue for a revaluation 
of the body as actively involved in processes of world making rather 
than a passive decoding machine. This revaluation of the body points 
to the necessity to change our understanding of the role of the body 
in processes of perception and meaning making. Corporal literacy 
understood as the bodily capacity to read and make sense also changes 
the notion of thought and meaning itself, the idea of what it means 
to do thinking, to make meaning, to rationalize. "What is important" 
write Lakoff and Johnson in their Philosophy in the Flesh, "is not 
just that we have bodies and that thought is somehow embodied. What 
is important is that the very peculiar nature of our bodies shapes 
our very possibilities for conceptualisation and categorization."  
Corporal literacy describes these abilities of the body to perceive, 
read and make sense. It is a strategic term, with which we want to 
make a space for interaction and collaboration between researchers 
approaching questions of bodily meaning making from various

Rob van Kranenburg:

In A future world of supersenses, Martin Rantzer of Ericsson 
Foresight claims:  "New communication senses will be needed in the 
future to enable people to absorb the enormous mass of information 
with which they are confronted," According to him the user interfaces 
we use today to transmit information to our brains threaten create a 
real bottleneck for new broadband services. "The boundaries of what 
constitutes consumer electronics and computers are getting blurred," 
said Gerard J. Kleisterlee, the chief executive of Royal Philips 
Electronics. "As we get wireless networking in the home, everything 
starts to talk to everything."  Implementing digital connecitivity in 
an analogue environment without a design for all the senses , without 
a concept of corporal literacy, leads to information overload. In a 
ubiquitous computing environment the new intelligence is 
extelligence, "knowledge and tools that are outside people's heads" 
(Stewart and Cohen, 1997) In a ubiquitous computing environment the 
user has to be not only textually and visually literate, both also 
have corporal literacy, that is an awareness of extelligence and a 
working knowledge of all the senses.  It is our claim in staking out 
a field of corporal literacy that  in contemporary performance and 
theatrical practice we find an actualization  of (and ways of dealing 
with) the bottleneck scenarios that are envisaged by information

Corporal Literacy - Ghent, September 23 - 26, 2003
Preliminary Program

Day 1: Tuesday September 23, 11.00 - 18.00 hrs.

Maaike Bleeker (University of Amsterdam) The Anatomical Theatre 
Revisited. Introduction

Philipa Rothfield  (La Trobe University) Corporal Literacy

This paper will look at the notion of corporal literacy via 
phenomenology of the body.  Kinaesthetic practices such as dance will 
be discussed, along with anthropological work on phenomenology and 
cultural difference.

Rebecca Skelton (Chicester UK) Ways of becoming more literate: 
through dancing, through being.

Through the phenomenological approach of Maurice Merleau-Ponty this 
paper will outline how the practice of Skinner Releasing Technique 
(SRT) can tune the dancing and non dancing body to its perceptions 
through a creative process of image specific, movement explorations. 
It will outline how something of the psychophysical totality 
experienced by the dancer when being 'moved by an image',  can make 
sense of how the individual deals  with the noise of the everyday; 
the constant process of receiving feedback from and tuning into 
information (as in tuning a radio) that occurs, just by 'being in' 
the world.

Einstein's Brain Project

The Einstein's Brain Project is a collaborative group of artists and 
scientists who have been working together for the past six years to 
visualize the biological state of the conscious body. In this 
presentation the Project will explore its various reasons and methods 
for constructing visual forms directly out of the human acts of 
living, acting and thinking in the body's moment to moment
reconstruction of itself and its world.

Day 2:  Wednesday September 24, 11.00 - 18.00 hrs

Rob van Kranenburg: Introduction

Olha Homilko (Ukraine)
Desomatization and Disembodiment as the alternates of Corporal Literacy

The paper deals with the metaphysical desomatization of a human being 
in the modern philosophy and its overcoming in contemporary 
theoretical discourse. That is to say,  the subject of the 
presentation is the  metaphysical shift from Ego to Soma as a 
principal ontological authenticity.

Seth Riskin and Noah Riskin (MIT) Identical Twinhood and Corporal Literacy

Identical twinhood presents a rare opportunity for the development of 
corporal literacy: the chance to observe and communicate with one's 
genetic double. As identical twins, the authors draw from their 
expanded experience of body-knowing it from inside and outside-to 
shed light on the connection between "self" and "other" and between 
the body and the world it perceives.

Sarah Rubidge (Chicester UK) Spaces of Sensation: The Immersive 
Installation and corporal literacy

The multi-sensory immersive interactive installation is a perfect 
environment to explore and experience the complex interweaving 
systems that make up the embodied mind. My paper will examine the 
implications of these environments for corporal literacy, drawing on 
the work of neuroscientists such as Antonio Damasio (2000) and Gerald 
Edelman (2001), psychologists such as Howard Gardner (1993), and 
philosophers such as Bergson (1910); Merleau Ponty (1989) and Deleuze 
and Guattari (1987).

Stijn Ossevoort (IVREA) on Wearable Computing.

I will present two wearable electronic objects based on the augmented
relation between two individuals and their favourite piece of 
clothing. Both objects have been designed to be a non-distracting, 
integral part of their daily activities.

Alissa Cardone and Petra Vermeersch
What the Body Knows, Lecture + Performance

Using the example of Artaud to think through the idea of corporal 
literacy. Literacy is associated with cultured modes of reading and 
writing. Is this an appropriate logic for thinking about the ways in 
which the body knows, learns and transmits information? The key to 
new ways of communicating is in movement.

Rita Marcalo (Chichester UK)

What if? This presentation asks what understanding would one have of 
the role of the body in the processes of perception, if one 
constructed such an understanding around Bergson's theorisations.
In stating that "_ we perceive only the past" (p. 150) , Bergson 
seems to equate perception (of the present) with a particular kind of 
very immediate memory (of the past). He further establishes the body 
as the mediator between the external object and this immediate memory 
(or perception).
Taking Bergson as a starting point, this presentation enquires on the 
role of bodily memory - or as Bergson says memory that is "fixed in 
the organism" (p. 151) - in the perception and survival of 
choreographic performance.
The presentation would first take the form of a 15-minute 
presentation, and then of a 15 minute performance.

Day 4, Friday September 26, 11.00 - 18.00 hrs.

Ramsay Burt (De Montfort Universiy) 
A preliminary exploration of cognitive approaches towards reading 
abstract dance.

Drawing on Lakoff and Johnson's work on the embodied basis of 
metaphor in language, this paper looks at a recent work by the 
English choreographer Jonathan Burrows in order to explore bodily 
meaning making in abstract dance choreography. Reading Lakoff and 
Johnson backwards, it suggests that dance performance consitutes a 
dialogic process that articulates, through bodily meaning making, the 
cognitive structures that they have postulated underpin language.

A New Alphabet: an inquiry into digital literacy and embodiment.

A New Alphabet ( an inquiry into 
digital literacy and embodiment is a multi-faceted and divergent 
critique of new media, technology, and literature in a digital 
collage of essay, poetics and iconographic images from fine art.  
Each page is an alphabet letter exploring the apparatus of perception 
and cognition in relation to thought. A New Alphabet while using new 
media offers a Blakeian resistance to formation of a culture of 
uniformity and/or enchantment with new media, promoting instead, 
critical recognition of a continuous momentum of flux of ideas and 
methods of transmission.

Cinematheque at MediaCentre
of " Le Musee di-visioniste"
is preparing another show case of streaming media
for autumn 2003, entitled:

[Quicktime (.mov) as an artistic medium]

Quicktime does not only represent a cross-plattform file format for
converting and
distributing (analogue/digital) video into an Internet compatible streaming
format, but has a lot of different features and characteristics which
predestine Quicktime to be a serious artistic medium beyond that.

Cinematheque invites artists who use Quicktime for their artistic purposes -
in which way ever - to submit up to two (2) works in Quicktime (.mov)

It is preferred that the submitted work has an URL of itsown,
in this case there is no limit of file size.
But it is also possible to send the work via email
as .mov file, however, then will be a file size limit of 5MB for each
submitted work.

Deadline 30 September 2003

Please use this form for submitting:
******************* of artist, email address, URL
2. short biography/CV (not more than 300 words)

(not more than 300 words each)
5. one screenshot for each submitted work (max. 800x600 pixels, .jpg only)

RENAISSANCE OR RECESSION?  Panel Discussion at the Commonwealth Club

artAngels, BvNW Group, and the Commonwealth Club of California


A Panel Discussion:

"Renaissance or Recession? 
San Francisco Arts in the Post-Boom Economy"


Wednesday, July 16th
6:30pm (pre-reception starts at 5:45)
The Commonwealth Club, 595 Market Street, 2nd Floor

The panel will bring together a diverse group of representatives
from the San Francisco arts community to discuss the impact of the
post-boom economy on the arts and cultural infrastructure within San

Brent Assink, Executive Director, San Francisco Symphony
Christine Kristin (aka Ladybee), Art Curator, Burning Man
Sean San Jose, Co-Founder, Campo Santo Theater
Ethan Watters, Co-Founder, The Grotto
Brenda Way, Artistic Director, ODC

Moderated by: 
John Killacky, The San Francisco Foundation 

The panel will explore the economic realities and new models used by
arts institutions, while attempting to uncover tangible actions
being taken by artists to create solutions. It is our hope that both
panelists, and audience, will walk away with new ideas and
approaches to deal with current economic (and social) realities.

- - Is this a time of recession and/or renaissance? What indications
argue for either side?
- - Space is affordable again - is it making a difference for running
- - What new trends in arts funding, community relations, and artistic
collaboration are emerging?
- - What longer-term impact might this have on the "ecosystem" of
funders, patrons, artists and administrators?

Date: Wednesday, July 16th
Time: Reception - 5:45pm. Program - 6:30pm
Location: The Commonwealth Club of California
