>CONFERENCE SCOPE
>================
>
>This cross-disciplinary conference explores the ways in which semiotics
>(and related theories such as structuralism and post-structuralism) can be
>applied to creating and analysing computer-based media. It is intended for
>anyone with an interest in areas of overlap (or potential overlap) between
>semiotics and interactive digital media - including artists, designers,
>critics, computer scientists, HCI, AI and VR practitioners, semioticians,
>narratologists and new media practitioners.
>
>Computational semiotics is understood here to be the application of
>semiotic theories to interactive digital media and has three main areas
>(which overlap). They are:
>
>
>* The way in which meaning can be created by, encoded in, or understood by,
>  the computer (using systems or techniques based upon semiotics).
>
>
>* The way in which meaning in interactive digital media is understood by the
>  viewer or user (again using systems or techniques based upon semiotics).
>
>
>* The use of semiotics as the starting point for a system for looking
>  critically at the content of interactive digital media - devising a critical
>  framework equivalent in status and depth to art theory or academic film
>  criticism.
>
>
>Media that make use of the unique capabilities of digital systems are of
>particular interest to this conference. These include: computer games,
>interactive narratives and other forms of interactive entertainment;
>interactive video; virtual reality systems and virtual environments; and
>hypermedia.
>
>In addition to academic and theoretical papers, there will be presentations
>by several digital artists of practice-based work relevant to the themes of
>this conference. Selection of these artworks has been based upon their
>relevance to the themes of the conference, their interest in demonstrating
>or exploring the potential of new media, and their challenging of
>perceptions, theoretical assumptions, or understanding in any areas related
>to the conference.
>
>
>
>CONFERENCE PROGRAMME
>====================
>
>The conference brings together academic papers and posters from as far
>afield as the USA, Australia, Japan, Norway, Denmark, Croatia, Italy,
>Germany, Brazil, and the UK. Topics covered include: the aesthetics of
>virtual environments; the production of place in role-playing games;
>semiotic and non-semiotic MUD performance; literary theory and computer
>games; the design of interactive narratives; the mapping of movement to
>sound; web-based documentaries; the design of content management systems;
>montage; the semiotics of interface design; etc.
>
>In addition to academic and theoretical papers, there will be presentations
>by several internationally-known digital artists of practice-based work.
>Selection of these artworks has been based upon their relevance to the

>PRESS RELEASE

>BABEL
>SIMON BIGGS
>
>http://www.babel.uk.net/    going live 13 July 2001
>
>Focal Point Gallery in association with Southend, Essex and Suffolk
>Libraries has commissioned a major new Internet work from artist, Simon
>Biggs. The final site will be linked to the to the online catalogues of the
>partner Libraries and will be exhibited in the form of a large-scale
>projection in libraries around Essex during July and August.
>
>With this project Biggs has been given the opportunity to create a
>site-specific work for a non-physical site. The site for Babel is an
>abstract thing...information space and the classification of knowledge that
>all libraries represent...and which in turn the Internet, where the project
>is primarily realised, is. The challenge for Biggs has been to come up with
>a metaphor that relates directly to the character of this site. The Dewey
>Decimal numbering system, used in the cataloguing of library contents, is
>that metaphor, visualised in a three dimensional multi-user space that is
>itself a metaphor for the infinite nature of information. In Babel the
>Dewey Decimal numbering system is employed as a means to navigate the
>internet itself, the numerical codes mapping onto web-sites that conform
>with the defined subjects.
>
>Babel exists, in the first instance, as a web-site on the world wide web.
>Viewers logged onto the site are confronted with a 3D visualisation of an
>abstract data space mapped as arrays and grids of Dewey Decimal numbers. As
>they move their mouse around their screen they are able to navigate this 3D
>environment. Further to this, all the viewers are able to see what all the
>other viewers, who are simultaneously logged onto the site, are seeing. All
>the multiple 3D views of the data-space are then montaged together into a
>single shared image, where the actions of any one viewer effect what all
>the other viewers see. If a large number of viewers are logged on together
>the information displayed becomes so complex and dense that it breaks down
>into a meaningless, if often beautiful, abstract space.
>
>Viewers are also able to navigate specific Dewey Decimal numbers and as
>they do so a dynamic interface keeps them informed of web-site addresses
>that conform with the subjects defined in the numbering system. Viewers can
>choose to visit any of these sites with a simple point and click of the
>mouse, opening the site in a new window.
>
>Babel also exists as a multi-user installation, either indoors as an
>immersive interactive environment or outdoors as an architectural
>projection. In both cases the work remains located in both the physical
>time and space of the installation site and also on the internet so that
>viewers can interact with those who are both physically and telematically
>present.
>
>The website will be launched on 13 July 2001. A large-scale interactive
>projection of the work can been seen at the following venues:

>Throughout the life of the project a number of topics have continued to
>recur, they included:
> the extensibility of the strategies of the open source movement among
>programmers to other domains which we called "open process"
> the critical role of meta-data in managing new forms of creative practice
>as well as the classification of cultural artifacts through metadata
>relationships,
> the institutional reform required to optimise the "networked creativity"
>which characterize the era of digital cultures.
>
>The  many discussion topics have clustered around a number of 'synergy
>themes 'which will form the conceptual structure of the conference
> Description of culture: architectures of information
> Interactivity and the future of the creative practice
> Institutional supports for innovation or creative pull
> Theory and methodology of digital creative production contexts
>.
>If you wish to submit a proposal to the conference please keep these themes
>in mind.
>
>At the conference, as well as presenting the key conclusions relating to
>each of the synergy themes. We would also like to invite submissions of
>papers or projects which might throw additional light on these themes.  And
>finally that critical open discussion of the project will bring the CIRCUS
>research program to a powerful set of conclusions.
>
>Website
>Consult our website <www,circusweb.org> to explore these ideas in more depth
>or just browse the numerous papers which have been delivered over the
>lifetime of the project. The site is an important outcome of CIRCUS. Not
>only providing access to accumulating CIRCUS content but importantly the
>site itself is a developing tool box for identifying and creating synergy.
>Keep visiting the site as at the end of July it will be again upgraded to
>include a new Metadata tool.
>The interactive content mapping tool will allow Circus members to create and
>browse an interactive, visual map of content generated through their
>research. This map will visualise patterns that emerge and evolve within the
>content based on user feedback.  Accumulations of user micro-decisions will
>form the basis of this system.  The visualisation element reveals underlying
>connections between content objects, allowing browsing from one content
>object to the next along these relationships. This will be done using a
>"bullseye graph" technique, which arrays related content objects according
>to the strength of the relationships. This is a dynamic approach which
>maximises interaction.  This desktop environment provides an easy way to
>move within the content space, integrating the graphical visualisation and
>the textual content.
>
>Future Research Outcome
>The researchers based at the Utrecht School of Art (as part of the Design
>for Digital Cultures Program) will continue to develop these synergy tools
>beyond the lifetime.
>The research thread: Modelling synergy within research groups through
>metadata analysis of content objects. This project proposes a model for the
>mining of content networks for the purpose of uncovering areas of potential
>synergy within research groups. The model we propose is based on the
>assumption that there are a number of implicit factors shared among content
>objects that, though real, cannot be measured directly (latent variables).
>These latent variables reveal themselves in the various aspects of content
>objects that can be observed and documented (manifest variables).  The
>application of this paradigm is an objective and democratic process rather
>than a hierarchical classification system.  To illustrate the data analysis
>feature of the model's implementation, Principal Component Analysis was
>applied to the metadata associated with Circus research papers. The proposed
>model is a potential answer to the challenge of applying architectures of
>information to the description of culture.  It may lead to the development
>of a virtually self-sustaining system that will foster synergistic
>collaboration among research groups, allowing ongoing interpretation of the
>hidden inter-relationships between content objects.

>
>Media Circus is a gathering of people who create, consume, critique and
>distribute media content that challenges, questions, expresses and
>celebrates our culture,
>our society and the way we live.
>
>The media is everywhere. Deals, ideas, ideology, websites, porn,
>breaking news, films, positions vacant, knowledge, technologies. It's
>all around us. Just as we
>tend not to think about where milk comes from, we can forget to
>interrogate the processes through which media is made. Homogenised and
>pasteurised or
>non-genetically-modified? It's all mediated.
>
>There is little doubt that the large media corporations with their
>diverse interests exert an overwhelming amount of influence and control
>over the way our world
>works. This is reflected upon and critiqued by academics and others in
>privileged ghettos, but this detail is often contained inside their
>sanctioned structures.
>
>We know from our direct experience that the media manipulates and
>distorts reality, that it misrepresents and influences priorities and
>that it disempowers and
>attempts to confuse us with choices we do not ask for. And we know that
>the media should belong to us, the public, and not to a handful of
>transnational
>corporations.
>
>The Media Circus will include a broad group of people to develop
>networks and share and exchange information, knowledge, skills and
>tactics. We need to reclaim
>the media space and continue fostering a bottom-up media culture which
>will break us free from the illusions which attack and prototype us
>every day.
>
>We need to tell our own stories and what better place to empower
>ourselves than at the Circus. For the event to be a success, it is
>essential that the
>audience-presenter boundaries are broken. Everyone is a participant.
>
>The Media Circus was first held in Melbourne in September 1999. See the
>webbed archive. (http://www.antimedia.net/mediacircus/main99.htm)
>
>Media Circus 2001 will be happening in Melbourne on the 12th, 14th and
>15th July. 2001, and will be comprised of screenings, discussions,
>forums and
>exchanges. The days will be packed, but there will be spaces for
>autonomous gatherings and networking.
>
>It is hoped that this event will help create an origin from where more
>Media Circus events can be held to continue the development of a media
>culture in Melbourne
>and other networked locations.

>From: Ken Friedman <ken.friedman@bi.no>
>Subject: Call for Papers - FLUXUS
>
>CFP - FLUXUS issue of Performance Research
>
>FLUXUS was an international community of artists, architects, 
>designers, and composers described as "the most radical and 
>experimental art movement of the 1960s." As a laboratory of 
>experimental art, Fluxus was the first locus of intermedia, concept 
>art, events, and video, and a central influence on performance art, 
>arte povera, and mail art.
>
>2002 will mark the 40th anniversary of the first Fluxus festival in 
>Wiesbaden, Germany. The journal Performance Research will mark the 
>occasion with a special issue.
>
>Guest editors Ken Friedman and Owen Smith will coordinate this issue. 
>The editors will welcome proposals and complete papers on any topic 
>or theme relevant to Fluxus, the Fluxus artists and composers, or 
>their work.
>
>
>Themes
>
>"Fluxus is what Fluxus does -- but no one knows whodunit." Emmett Williams
>
>"Fluxus is not a moment in history, or an art movement. Fluxus is a 
>way of doing things, a tradition, and a way of life and death." Dick 
>Higgins
>
>As a large and somewhat diffuse phenomenon, there can be no single 
>approach to Fluxus. The editors encourage a wide variety of topics, 
>themes, and approaches.
>
>A list of possible topics includes: art practice in Fluxus, art 
>theory in Fluxus, events, video, concept art and conceptual art, 
>intermedia, performance, artist books and periodicals, cooperative 
>housing, artist stamps, experimental film, Happenings, mail art, new 
>music.
>
>A partial list of Fluxus artists and composers includes: Ay-O, Joseph 
>Beuys, George Brecht, Phil Corner, Robert Filliou, Ken Friedman, Al 
>Hansen, Geoffrey Hendricks, Dick Higgins, Bengt af Klintberg, Milan 
>Knizak, Alison Knowles, Arthur Koepcke, Shigeko Kubota, George 
>Maciunas, Jackson Mac Low, Larry Miller, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, 
>Takako Saito, Mieko Shiomi, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, Yoshimasa 
>Wada, Robert Watts, Emmett Williams, and La Monte Young.
>
>Articles on other artists and themes are also welcome.
>
>
>Special theme:
>
>2002 also marks 30 years since the 1972-73 Fluxshoe toured England 
>with a series of performances, concerts, and exhibitions. This issue 
>of Performance Research will particularly welcome contributions that 
>focus on the historical and geographical activities centered on the 
>Fluxshoe, together with considerations of how it influenced the 
>British art of the years since.
>
>
>Overview
>
>Fluxus has been a laboratory characterized by George Maciunas's 
>notion of the "learning machine." The Fluxus research program has 
>been characterized by twelve ideas: globalism, the unity of art and 
>life, intermedia, experimentalism, chance, playfulness, simplicity, 
>implicativeness, exemplativism, specificity, presence in time and 
>musicality.
>
>These ideas describe the qualities and issues that characterize the 
>work of Fluxus. Each describes a "way of doing things." Together, 
>these twelve ideas form a picture of what Fluxus is and does.
>
>The implications of these ideas have been interesting and 
>occasionally startling. Fluxus has been a complex system of practices 
>and relationships. As a forum of philosophical and artistic practice, 
>Fluxus developed and demonstrated ideas that would later be seen in 
>such frameworks as multimedia, telecommunications, hypertext, 
>industrial design, urban planning, architecture, publishing, 
>philosophy, even management theory.
>
>This issue of Performance Research will explore the general and 
>individual aspects of Fluxus that have made it so lively, engaging, 
>and difficult to describe.
>
>
>About the editors.
>
>Ken Friedman was an active participant in Fluxus, as an artist since 
>1966, as director of Fluxus West for a decade, and as editor of The 
>Fluxus Reader for Academy Press. Friedman is associate professor of 
>leadership and strategic design at the Norwegian School of 
>Management. Owen Smith is an art historian and curator specializing 
>in intermedia and multimedia art forms. His book, Fluxus: History of 
>an Attitude, is published by San Diego State University Press. Smith 
>is associate professor of art history at University of Maine.
