Channel and Book Works are delighted to announce the launch of The
by Nick Crowe at the ICA, London and at
on Saturday, 27 February 1999 at 7.30pm GMT

The Citizens is a new digital and book work marking a particular moment in
the development of the internet. It is a tribute to people's constant
desire to participate in the beginning of the future.

Nick Crowe has worked with the web sites of private individuals,
downloading hundreds of homepages, translating some of them from digital
code to simple line drawings that have been traced onto typographic detail
paper, and then returned back to code again - electronically 'gathered and
bound' and released back on the net as a downloadable movie.

Looking at the way the early internet has been claimed as a space for the
idiosyncratic and the banal, The Citizens presents a fascinating
sociological snapshot of its users through the means of their (digital)
self-representation. Often basic in layout and design, an individual's
homepage will usually be a simple photograph with a few paragraphs about
jobs, hobbies and family. Margo Barbour's website (dedicated to 'my son,
life, my Tyler-Logan') is mainly photographs of herself, her son and her
dead stepfather. Ron and Nancy Cutler's site shows pictures of 'Beautiful
Edmonton' and of a young girl in 1974. They'd love to hear from her. She'd
be about 29 now.

Nick Crowe has produced a work that is made both for and about the
in an attempt to understand it as a human space where the particulars of
everyday life really are as important as the revolutionary aspects of
digital communication. Essentially a site specific piece of work, it
the digital space as a populated landscape wherein patterns of human
activity can be read and understood.  The resulting publications - a book
of homepages existing both as a unique, lavishly bound work on paper and
1000 downloadable, numbered movie copies - has been co-published by
Channel/Artec and Book Works, and brings into play both old and new
technologies to present a picture of the internet as a space more
remarkable for its familiarity than for its strangeness.

Nick Crowe is an artist whose recent projects include, Projects for the
River Medlock, Artranspennine98; Ten Point Plan for a Better Helsinki,
KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki
(; Artaids, ISEA97,
Chicago and Mugger Music, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York. His
work has also been shown at The Annual Programme, Manchester; Transmission
Gallery, Glasgow; City Racing, London and the ICA London.  Forthcoming
exhibitions include Gallerie Celeste & Eliot, Zurich; Parts Gallery,
Minneapolis and Northview Gallery, Portland.  His 1996 work One Day and
of the Night is scheduled for release on CD-Rom to be published by
Channel/Artec during 1999.  Artec and Book Works have also previously
worked together to co-publish the Rehearsal of Memory CD-Rom by Graham
Harwood in 1996.

The Citizens will be launched tomorrow evening at the ICA in conjunction
with Two Speakers, a new sound work by Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson.  You
are cordially invited to attend - bring with you a print out of this mail
(to get free access past the ferocious ICA ticket desk) and a zip disk if
