   Meeting of the AA Project and the Ascii Art Ensemble


           Time's Up Laboratories, Linz, Austria

                12.12.98 (Y2K incompliant)

  Ascii Art, that's the dicky section in Wired with Spock
and pussy cats in someone's .sig, isn't it? For those who
think not, the meeting of the AA Project and the Ascii
Art Ensemble might be just the remedy for photoshopilepsy
at 1600 dpi.

  For the AA project, whose third stated goal is the
reintroduction of the IBM MDA (Monochrome Display Adapter)
and the Ascii Art Ensemble, whose goals remain vague, ascii
art isn't cutesy pictures or diagrams using -,_,|,/ and \,
it's something stronger, subtler and infinitely stranger.

  The gathering in the Time's Up Laboratories is meant to
allow those people involved in the projects and others
working in the field to come together to swap notes,
ideas and experiences, to get to know each other. Starting
at 12:12 (or so) this is a closed meeting, please contact
us if you would like to take part.

  The evening presentation (as of 19:19) will then be aimed
at a more general audience; toys, tricks, gimmicks and
7-bit strangeness as far as it goes. Live video-to-ascii,
DUMB (DOOM ascii version), ascii films and clips, an
introduction to ascii quake for the CAVE and much much

  This evening is presented as a part of the series of events
dedicated to the theme "Obsolete."
