[One among 400,000]
A personal interactive document by 'Ruth Catlow' of the
protest that took place in London, UK on September 28th 2002 to stop the war
against Iraq. 'I am an artist but on this day I was one among 400,000 (or there
abouts) protesters. It seems more relevant these days, for me as an artist to
jump in with both feet, to be in the middle of a crowd of human beings when so
much of our experience of the world is so passive and mediated by TV and film'.
collaboration with 'Ouch Those Monkeys'
[Art or Action]
'Joy Garnett's' Bomb Project
(Reviewed by Lewis Lacook). 'To say that Joy Garnett's Bomb Project is
monumental would be an understatement. To say that it's a necessary reminder of
the power unleashed at the end of World War II, and of the power the whole world
cringed under during the Cold War--that would be more like it. And yet there's
more going on here than activism (as if that weren't enough)'.
[Tales from a Corporate
Nick Fry's Literary consequences of
corporate life: anecdote, correspondence, image and documentation produced from
within the fold of a corporate working environment. 'Graham arrived when I was
back at my desk - he hit me on the head with a bacon-avocado-an-mayonaisse
baguette. It was a nervous pokey little assault - a compromise between not
hitting me too hard so as not to upset me and not disturbing the sodden limb of
lard smearing the inside of its plastic sheath'.

[Goat Boy 2]
'micki Tschur's' first self exploratory nature fest & her many encounters in
the Alps, and her meeting with the Goat Boy. At last, you can now visit &
experience the sequel. Does she meet the Goat Boy again? We'll see...a comic
strip that leaves you wondering whether these hot naughty encounters were real
or fantasies. We suspect they were real, what do you think? http://www.furtherfield.org/mtschur/goatboy2/index.htm
3 recent works exploring the less disenchanted states of
being. In one of her works 'Miranda Matthews' starts to locate the migrant
'soul' of myth & magic, via performance, installation & sculpture. With
'Seal Suits' I decided to locate my own seal spirit and make my own seal skin.
The 'seal suit' is made from neoprene, which is used to make wet suits. "It
feels like an extra layer of the self. The silkies are creatures of Celtic myth,
who have a hidden seal identity. The tale goes that women (and sometimes men)
would hide their seal skins in a place known only to themselves. When tired of
their ordinary existence, they would slip into their seal skins and swim off
into the oceans". http://www.furtherfield.org/mmatthews/transubstance/index.html
'Wrapping Our Warped Minds' are visual and multimedia
artists; exploring imaginative visual-scapes that users can interact with. You
can either be the 'VJ' and change what you are seeing before your eyes, as
pixels, code and images, shift and glide like a 'virtual contemporary Joseph
Albers' on your screen. Or the 'DJ-sound mixer' changing the sound levels of the
music on each of these sound/viz- scapes'. The beauty of it is, that there is an
intimacy in the way it hangs around floating, unbothered about whether someone
is interacting or not, although participants are encouraged to create new moods
using the phasers supplied. http://www.furtherfield.org/wowm/pictures.html
