Taka Iimura, who has worked in film and video since 1960s, will present
his most recent works in multimedia, CD-ROMs, at Millennium, New York.
Iimura, who is called "an enigmatic, mysterious presence in the New
York avantgarde scene" by Jonas Mekas, director of Anthology Film
Archives, found CD-ROM as an exciting new media to combine text,
graphics, as well as video. The result is a multi-faced experiments
linking the media freely within the work. He will talk about the work.

The program:

"A I U E O NN Six Features", video,1993, 8min., color

"Interactive: A I U E O NN Six Features", CD-ROM, 1998-99, color,
Digital work: Kazuhiro Asai and Tacora InterMedia. English version:
William Thompson

"This is the game that Iimura plays, not only in the installation of
the same name, but also again with this CD-ROM. The 'differance' is for
him an example of multiculturalism, a connection of unity in diversity,
in which Iimura plays with the expressive and indicative function of a
sign, in sound and in image" World Wide Video Festival, Amsterdam,

"Observer/Observed", video,1975-98, 22min., b/w

"Observer/Observed", and Other Works of Video Semiology, CD-ROM, 1999,
b/w, Co-produced with the Banff Centre for the Arts, Banff, Canada, and
Euphonic Inc.,Tokyo

"Iimura is at his best deconstructing and reconstructing the video
apparatus. Elemental and elegant, these works confront issues of
language and semiotics through forms of direct address. Incisively
presented, this CD-ROM offers a new generation access to classic works
of video art and theory" Peter d'Agostino, professor of media arts,
Temple University, Philadelphia.

Taka iimura, who has explored the concept of time in film in 1970s,
will present his rarely shown films with a talk on the films. Jonas
Mekas, director of Anthology Film Archives, has said that Iimura
"contributed decisively to his uncompromizing explorations of cinema's
minimalist and conceptual possibities. He has explored this direction
of cinema in greater depth than anyone else".

"MA:Space/Time in the Garden of Ryoan-Ji", 1989, color,16min., Sound by
Takehisa Kosugi

"Though Taka continues to develop a range approaches to film, video and
now digital work, this concern with the experience of time, its
measured passage and analogy between time and space, has been the main
recurring theme at the centre of his work." Malcolm Le Grice

"As the title suggests, Models (1972) defines the general concerns
which characterize Iimura's nonphotographic films. The most important
of these concerns is his exploration of the real space and time of film
experience. Models presents eight different forms of this exploration,
each of which involves a different set of basic variables." Scott


"MA: Space/Time-In the Garden of Ryoan-ji (1989) - focus on the Eastern
concept of MA, of space and time as a conceptual and perceptual unity
... and a fine introduction to a classic Japanese garden and the
concept of MA, and to central dimensions of Iimura's earlier work."
Scott MacDonald


Film Performance "Circle and Square"

Tuesday, April 4th, 2000 9pm. $5

The Robert Beck Memorial Cinema,145 Ludlow St, Between Stanton and
Rivington St., New York, N.Y. phone:718-622-5360

Taka iimura will present a rarely seen film performance "Circle and
Square" together with a film "1 to 60 Seconds". Jonas Mekas, director
of Anthology Film Archives, has said that Iimura "contributed
decisively to his uncompromizing explorations of cinema's minimalist
and conceptual possibilities. He has explored this direction of cinema
in greater depth than anyone else".


Film performance: "Circle and Square"(1982)

When I first performed the piece in the gallery space of Millennium,
New York, l982, I used two projectors facing far apart and a loop film
was hung between them threading to one of the projector. I stand in the
middle with a film puncher punching holes(circles) on the film as many
as possible which were projected on one side of wall, and on another
wall a square frame was projected without film. Now for RBMC theater I
will use only one projector and will do the same performance. The
difference is that in Millennium "Circle and Square" happened
simulteneously on both walls, but here in RBNC theater it will happen
only before and after with one projector. You will see this with a
surprise if you come to RBMC theater. (T.I.)

Film "1 to 60 Seconds"(1973)

"In 1 to 60 Seconds Iimura does an extrordinary thing: he abstracts
time from any concrete associations, seems to put it on the screen and
there you sit looking at (or for) it, experiencing it. The film is all
black leader except for the numbers 1 to 60 that apper individually in
sequence to indicate the amount of time in seconds that each of them
followed one second leter by a number or numbers indicatin the total
amount of time that has thus far transpired. So at each juncture you
know beforehand how much time awaits you before the next and how much
is behind you, and then it's just you and the black screen. And
thereafter many things happen: you attempt to experience, say, twenty
one seconds so accurately you will be ready for the 22, or you become
impatient and bored, or you just feel time, fell the ongoingness. The
film's as varied as time (for you) is and can be." Paul Poggiali, The
Soho Weekly News, New York, 1974

Speed is probably the most typifying characteristic of our information
society.  New technologies are often praised for their time-saving and
immediate qualities. It almost appears to be a cultural imperative to
regulate our time consumption as efficiently and frugally as possible, even
though time as such is volatile and impossible to contain.

Our perception of time is most intense when different temporal conceptions
clash.  This is to say, when we experience time in an accelerated or
retarded mode.  The conflict between slow and fast is best witnessed in
ideas of technological determinism, where the continuous development and
acceleration of technological and social processes - ranging from fast food
to e-commerce  - are viewed as inevitable effects of progress.  In
contrast, these beliefs are counteracted by practices stressing the
qualitative and soothing aspects of slowness.  In the latter scenario the
consumption of time becomes a matter of individual and conscious choice.
It is thus also a critique of a society in which time is solely regarded as
a precious economic good.

The crucial question here is whether a culture of speed is the natural
outcome of a technologised society, or not.  Digital media art provides a
fertile matrix for investigating these issues.  During 2000, V2_ will query
the phenomenon of time and its inter-relations with technology, perception,
the body, media, etc.  Wiretap 6.03 is the first in a series of staged
temporal collisions.

FEATURE: Law and Disorder
by Emil Danielyan
Five months after the assassinations in the Armenian parliament, the
country is deadlocked in the worst political crisis since independence.
Some groups are pressuring President Robert Kocharian to step down,
alleging that he or his allies had a hand in the deaths. Meanwhile, the
chief investigator has authorized arrests that many believe are politically
motivated. The result is a political stalemate,with the infighting in the
government rendering it utterly ineffectual and placing Nagorno-Karabakh
on the backburner.

MEDIA: E-Eavesdropping
by Marisa Robertson-Textor
After almost two years of rumor and speculation, the Russian government has
given itself carte blanche to snoop around on the Internet. Though SORM-2,
a regulation coauthored by the Federal Security Service (FSB) and
Communications Ministry, isn't unique, one worrying aspect is: Internet
Service Providers will have to foot the bill. "The FSB brought us a plan in
which every Russian's constitutional rights were violated. Obviously, we
couldn't sign it," said the owner of one provider that refused to step in

In a sidebar, TOL reprints "Five Years Of Online Publishing in Russia," an
overview of Internet demographics in Russia by Aleksandr Egorov originally
published in the February issue of the Russian-language media journal

BOOKS: The End of Autism
by Christian A. Nielsen
More than four years after the end of the Bosnian war, the grip of the
three nationalist parties remains extremely strong -- not withstanding
promising signs like the "de-Tudjmanization" of neighboring Croatia. Given
this apparently bleak scene, should proponents of a multiethnic and united
Bosnia pack their bags and leave town? Can one find any signs at all of an
emerging civic Bosnian identity? The authors of the books analyzed here
tackle those questions, but often reveal their own contradictory
definitions of what it means to be Bosnian.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: Russia: The Seven-Year Itch
The Russian press has been abuzz with discussions of extending the
presidential term from four to seven years. In an article entitled
"Seven-Year Term: Stagnation or Stability?" the electronic magazine published a clutch of opinions on the subject. One argues against
the idea, saying, "If there is anything positive about our political life,
it's regular elections."

The Summer Institute @ The Kitchen: Where Artists of the
Present Inspire Artists of the Future


The Kitchen and Sarah Lawrence College present
The Second Annual Sidney Kahn Summer Institute

Studies in Multimedia Performance
June 12 - June 30
$2,500 (includes 3 credits and meals)

Sound Circus 2000 is an intensive three-week lab offering students a
unique opportunity to create performance works through daily interaction
with cutting edge artists. This year's institute focuses on "new opera"
as a current multimedia practice interweaving voice, music, text, video,
dance, and performance.

The Kitchen makes its resources and facilities available to a future
generation of artists, activists, and educators.  Directed by Pia Massie
and fully-accredited by Sarah Lawrence College, Sound Circus 2000 offers
students age 18-30 mentoring and workshops from many influential
artists, including Lynn Book, Martha Bowers, Fast Forward, Maia Claire
Garrison, Philip Glass, Philip Hamilton, Shirley Kaplan, John King,
Annie Lanzilotto, Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, Molly Davies and Polly
Motley, Treva Offutt, Sara Rudner, and Lucienne Vidah, among others.

As part of the Institute, The Kitchen will present five public talks
from multimedia artists of international stature. In addition, weekly
public screenings from The Kitchen's extraordinary video collection and
archives are scheduled, which will bring to light the important
explorations in multimedia that have made The Kitchen the center of this
activity for more than twenty-five years.

The Kitchen is an interdisciplinary laboratory for visionary, emerging
and established artists.  It has been a powerful force in shaping the
cultural landscape of this country for over two decades, and is
internationally renowned for its early support of artists who have gone
on to receive world-wide stature.  The first institution to focus
exclusively on multi-disciplinary work, The Kitchen is emerging as a new

We've now have a new permanent domain:

The idea behind this site is quite like the one organisations
like Amnesty International have used for many years: to try an
place pressure on the power holders by sending loads of letters
from all over the world.

We've just joined a new campain against The Calgary Herald,
where 230 members from two unions have been on strike since nov.
8. 1999.

And you can still protest on behalf of:
Mumia Abu-Jamal - an afro-american journalist and civil rights
activist. He is wrongfully convicted of the murder of the white
police officer Daniel Faulkner. (IMPORTANT that protests arrive
before of April!) - A new address for Judge Yohn has been

Leonard Peltier - a Native American serving two consecutive life
sentences in a federal penitentiary, even though there is no
credible evidence that he is guilty of anything.

Elin Gonzles - a six-year-old boy, who has been caught in a US
foreign policy power game.

Viist us at:


Netaktivisten er en ny hjemmeside p dansk og engelsk - lavet
for folk, der gerne vil gre en forskel.

Ideen bag Netaktivisten er i stil med den som organisationer som
Amnesty International har benyttet sig af i mange r - nemlig at
forsge at lgge pres p magthavere ved at dynge dem til med
mere eller mindre personlige breve fra hele verden.

Vi har netop tilsuttet os en kampagne mod avisen The Calgary
Herald, hvor 230 medlemmer fra to forskellige fagforeninger har
vret i strejke siden d. 8 november 1999.

Og du kan stadig protestere for:

Mumia Abu-Jamal - en sort, amerikansk journalist og
borgerrettighedsforkmper. Han er uskyldigt dmt for mord p den
hvide politibetjent Daniel Faulkner.

Leonard Peltier - en amerikansk indianer, der afsoner to p
hinanden efterflgende livstidsdomme i et fderalt fngsel, selv
om der ikke er nogle trovrdige beviser p hans skyld.Tilgengld
er der beviser p at FBI i forbindelse med hans retssag har
fabrikret beviser og truet vidner.

Elin Gonzales -  en 6 rig cubansk dreng, der er blevet fanget
i USAs udenrigspolitiske spil.

                                                                         - - - -
