> > > > Synopsis: The 12hr-ISBN-JPEG Project began December 30, 1994. A
`round-the-clock posting of sequenced hypermodern imagery from Brad Brace.
The hypermodern minimizes the familiar, the known, the recognizable; it
suspends identity, relations and history.


                       The 12-hour ISBN JPEG Project
                       -----------------------------
                          began December 30, 1994


  Classic Hypermodern Imagery... posted/mailed every 12 hours... perfect
trans-avant-garde memes for the 90`s! A continuum of minimalist masks in
the face of catastrophe; conjuring up transformative metaphors for the
everyday... A poetic reversibility of events...

	A post-rhetorical, continuous, apparently random sequence of
imagery...  genuine gritty, greyscale...  corruptable, compact,
collectable and compelling convergence. The voluptuousness of the grey
imminence: the art of making the other disappear. Continual visual impact;
an optical drumming, sculpted in duration, on the endless present of the
Net.

  An extension of the printed ISBN-Book (0-9690745) series... critically
acclaimed... imagery is gradually acquired, selected and re-sequenced over
time...  ineluctable, vertiginous connections. The 12hr dialtone...

                              [ see ftp.netcom.com/pub/bb/bbrace/books ]

~ This interminable, relentless sequence of imagery began in earnest on
December 30, 1994. The basic structure of the project has been over
twenty-four years in the making. While the specific sequence of
photographs has been presently orchestrated for more than 12 years` worth
of 12-hour postings, I will undoubtedly be tempted to tweak the ongoing
publication with additional new interjected imagery. Each 12-hour posting
is like the turning of a page; providing ample time for reflection,
interruption, and assimilation.

~ The sites listed above also contain information on other cultural
projects and sources.

~ A very low-volume, moderated mailing list for announcements and
occasional commentary related to this project has been established. Send
e-mail to:  listserv@netcom.com /subscribe 12hr-isbn-jpeg

-- This project has not received government art-subsidies. Some
opportunities still exist for financially assisting the publication of a
CD-ROM archive of sequenced 12hr-ISBN-JPEG imagery. There's some
possibility of editions of large prints; perhaps (Iris) inkjet duotones on
newsprint! Other supporters receive rare copies of the first three
web-offset printed ISBN-Books.

**************************************************************************
.............. DEAF98 - The Unreliability of Accidents ...................
.................. Rotterdam, 17 - 29 November 1998 ......................
**************************************************************************

**************************************************************************
DEAF, the Dutch Electronic Art Festival, is a bi-annual event that deals
with the inter-relations between art, technology and society. Through its
presentation of independent and interdisciplinary artistic and scientific
projects, DEAF seeks to stimulate a critical discussion about social,
political and aesthetic developments in new media.

**************************************************************************
................. Theme: The Unreliability of Accidents ..................
**************************************************************************
DEAF98 deals with concepts of time and space, and with their significance
for the organisation of virtual environments. The festival investigates
the material, the design and the artistic realisation of the linkage
between digital spaces and network environments on the one hand, and our
actual living environments on the other. DEAF98 approaches this topic not
from the perspective of smooth, supple merging of material and virtual
worlds, but from the perspective of the accident, of friction and rupture
which are necessary elements of any technical reality. Thus, the festival
also inquires how complex social relations, individual actions and new
forms of identity, take shape at the intersection between the technical
and social reality.
DEAF98 stimulates a critical consciousness of the transformation and the
makeability of the spatio-temporal framework within which we are
constructing our social and cultural identities. Notions of time and space
are related to ideological models which inform the architectural creation
of social and cultural spaces, whether material or virtual. Earlier ideas
of the linear rationality of time and space have, in the 20th century,
been superceded by a critical world picture in which uncontrollability,
non-linearity and unpredictability have come to play an increasing role.
There is a clear sense of the 'time-space discontinuum' which is becoming
visible and which can be shaped in virtual spaces and electronic network
environments.
The modernist aesthetics of the smoothness, order and regulation and
seriality is countered by a re-evaluation of an 'aesthetics of
heterogeneity'. In relation to the conceptualisation of time and space,
this means: non-euclidian spaces, vertigo, unexpected events, and the
acceptance of all sorts of accidents.

**************************************************************************
.... Co-operations between architecture and art: TransArchitectures-03 ...
**************************************************************************
DEAF98 will explore the specific qualities of network environments and
real and virtual worlds through interdisciplinary projects of artists,
architects and scientists. Under the title TransArchitectures, a series of
topics from current debates in architecture will become part of the
festival.
The notion of 'TransArchitectures' (Markos Novak) derives from a
theoretical discussion among architects and designers who, influenced by
the practical design work with computer technologies, are developing new
concepts of time, space, form, structure, construction, etc. In two
earlier TransArchitectures conferences, these concepts were extensively
discussed, and presented in an exhibition. TransArchitectures is not a
demonstration of the populist distinction between 'bits & bricks', between
material and immaterial, or real and virtual. TransArchitectures is based
on the assumption that they are inseparabe and that they have to be
actively fused. It is not only about the use of the computer in
architecture, but about a reconceptualisation of design, and about the
shift from 'form and space' to 'process, field and agency'.

**************************************************************************
.............................. Programme .................................
**************************************************************************
The projects presented during DEAF98 deal with questions that touch upon
this discussion from the perspective of art and media technology.
TransArchitectures can imply cross-fertilisation and merger, as well as
friction between art and architecture, aspects which will be explored in
different parts of the festival.
DEAF98 inquires the possibilities of interfacing real urban spaces with
the translocal networks. It asks what this new intersection means for the
development of the public sphere and what the possibilities of individual
agency are in the 'interfacial zone'. And it proposes artistic,
architectural and trans-architectural models for approaching this
question.
These include exhibitions and installations, Internet projects, projects
at specific locations in Rotterdam, a symposium, workshops, presentations,
concerts, and performances. In a book publication, the cross-over between
art, architecture, science, technology and society initiated by the
festival will find yet another manifestation.

**************************************************************************
............................... Invitation ...............................
**************************************************************************
We invite considered suggestions for art projects and other contributions
in different formats (installation, Internet projects, CD-ROM,
performance, presentation, etc.) that are related to the theme of DEAF98.
Please, send brief outlines of your suggestions to <DEAF@v2.nl> or to the
address below, and we will get in touch with you should we require further
information.

Geneva 27th February 1998

OPEN LETTER

A CALL FOR GLOBAL ACTION IN EUROPE


European participants at the Peoples' Global Action Conference call
for  decentralised and co-ordinated actions 26th April - 18th May
against  undemocratic international economic institutions,
corporations andgovernments  promoting economic globalisation.

Together with people s movements from all continents, we have gathered
in  Geneva 23rd to 25th February to discuss joint actions against
WTO (World Trade  Organisation), "free" trade and corporate rule. We
feel anger when witnessing  the devastating social and environmental
effects of globalisation promoted by  WTO and other similar
institutions like International Monetary Fund, IMF, The  World Bank,
regional banks like the European Bank for Reconstruction and
Development (EBRD), regional "free"trade agreements like NAFTA, APEC
and EU as  well as transnational corporations, TNCs. We have joined
with teachers hungerstriking against privatisation of all public
education in Argentina,  Ogoni and other peoples in Nigeria
struggling for their survival against the  disastrous impacts of
Shell s operation , farmers struggling against  globalisation in
India, Philippines, Norway, Honduras, France, Spain,  Bangladesh,
Senegal and other countries, students fighting against the
repression of striking workers in Ukraine, Dockers from Liverpool and
postal  workers from Canada, other trade unionists,
environmentalists, anti- racists, women's rights activists, peace
mobilisers, animal rights activists  and other people from all over
the world.

The result was a global call for decentralised actions all around the
world  against WTO, in connection with the Ministerial Conference at
the 50th  anniversary of the  free  trade agreement GATT/WTO.
Peoples' Global Action  call for protest including non violent civil
disobedience and the  construction of local alternatives as answers to
the action of governments  and corporations.

At European level we invite different social sectors  to join  forces,
 exchange information and co-ordinate international actions in
Eastern,  Western, Southern, and Northern Europe. There is a need of
mutual  strengthening of struggles for social justice and the
environment. We invite your organisation to participate in one or more
of the following  international actions:

1st  May :  Broad social mobilisation against Economic and
MonetaryUnion, EMU,  and its economic, social and environmental
consequences, parallel to the extraordinary EU summitand  other EU
meetings (1st to 3rd May), where a decision will be taken onthe
countries that will join the Euro. Trade unions and movements
of unemployed in  many countries are already involved in this
initiative. Contact address :  Movement Against the Europe of

Bill Gates, Bruce Sterling, Marvin Minsky....all appear in The Net, a
series (now in its third season) produced by Illuminations for the BBC. A
cross between a documentary and magazine, the award winning series has
never been aired on American TV.
By special arrangement with Illuminations and John Wyver (its director), we
have arranged to screen selected episodes of The Net along with
Pandemonium, a startling look at Robotics and Performance and including
Stelarc, Survival Research Labs and others working on the edge between the
technology and the body.
With this inaugural evening, we hope to initiate an on-going series of
evenings focused on presenting works that will include original videos,
documentary works, CD-ROM, screen, and network media. Aside from "curated"
evenings we are hoping to extend the series into "open" evenings in which
works in progress can find a receptive, responsive and , hopefully, raucaus
audience.
The Net will be screened on March 25 at 7pm. We will have in place by then
a preliminary schedule for the series and plan to have it fully running by
the Fall.

Exhibition at Postmasters Gallery titled     USEFOOL   March 28 - April 25,1998

An international group show of works in all media exploring the idea of Use
and Function, and  the relationship of Cause and Effect. Rational,
real-life application of form following function and of action being
followed by response is challenged. Method and madness converge. Paintings,
collages, photographs, sculptures, video and digital projects in this
exhibition all navigate towards the absurd yet remain perfectly logical.
Presumed innocent by reason of insanity is proven guilty.

Artists included:  DIANA COOPER   FISCHLI &WEISS   TRICIA KEIGHTLEY  MILTOS
MANETAS   JOSIACH McELHENY  JACK RISLEY   JOVI SCHNELL   ROMAN SIGNER

3.
The upcoming series of installations in The Hole - Postmasters' monthly
project formatted in the tradition of Duchamp's "Etant Donnes" - has been
curated by Shannon R. Helms.
Inaugurating the series is a project by Barbara Gallucci titled "Flood Bed
Basin". Built around a functioning waterfall, the installation is a warped
domestic environment. With the view slightly blurred by running water, the
architecture and scale of the space inside becomes ambiguous. The discreet,
realistic sound of the waterfall makes for soothing yet dysfunctional
situation.
The subsequent artists in this series are: Amy Hauft, Mungo Thomson, Fred
Tomaselli, Roxy Paine

( The Hole is a 1 1/2" diameter hole in the wall of the Gallery with some
space behind it. We are inviting artists, based on their proposals to make
an installation for this specific situation.)


Postmasters Gallery, located in Soho at 80 Greene Street, is open Tuesday
through Saturday 11am to 6 pm. Please contact Magdalena Sawon with any
questions or requests that you might have.

Scarfaces, Scarasses, Scarhearts, hey Scarlets and Scarbuds !

Could you come into the light and share not only your natural born scars,
but give us also a scare about the ones acquired on your own? Indulge us
with your slashes, gashes, scratches, pimples and burns via words, photos,
or drawings in short cut or deep brief rubs.

Domestic accidents, sequels of terrorism, food wounds and peppered flying
glass: all forms of unforgettable mishaps welcome!

Knife paintings and keloid writings are eagerly anticipated. All will be
featured along with a special hard exhibition by porculus "friars of the
blade" : salted, sweet, anyway like greased ligthning razor, ash covered
for never never never, never to heal. To be wrapped up in oneself &
vulnerant omnes ultima necat.

And remember, in english 'Pleine Peau' means 'full leather' for men and
'solid fur' for women.

Send all material, in the language of your choice, to
cicatrices@pleine-peau.com before April 15, tentative publication date is
set for May 1!
