Electric Living in Canada 
Carol Sill
James K-M

With music by: The Winks

May 19th 8:00 PM

Western Front
303 E.8th Avenue
Vancouver BC

Admission free

Out of the digital laboratory of the north, a.k.a. Canadian media art 
practice and its affiliates, comes a document of wonder and 
amazement. ELECTRIC LIVING IN CANADA, a soon to be published DVD-ROM, 
represents the activities and thoughts of media theorists and artists 
from Canada and beyond. A host of characters that use technology in 
their work or espouse a critique of new technologies are assembled 
for your perusal.  The line-up includes Stelarc, Arthur Kroker, 
Derrick de Kerckhove, Niranjan Rajah, Thecla Schiphorst, Ahasiw 
Maskegon-Iskwew, Dale Amundson, James Faure Walker, Reva Stone, John 
Oswald, Christof Migone, Robert Ouellette, Jeanne Randolph, Sara 
Diamond, Elizabeth Fischer, Nancy Paterson, Adrianne Wortzel, Dave 
Watson, John Pungente, Liss Jeffrey, Vera Frenkel, Daniel Jolliffe, 
Alain Mongeau, Eric McLuhan and many others. The Electric Living in 
Canada project has emerged from Marshall McLuhan's research on 
"organising ignorance for discovery", and is an extension of the 
thought approach he originated and developed with the help of his 
various colleagues, especially Barrington Nevitt. Accompanied by 
musical guest The Winks, Vancouver-based Electric Living launches the 
results of their investigations into Canadian media culture. Come 
join the fair!

Subject: The Future of Art Forum - A Place for Science and Technology?
Date: Mon, 15 May 2000 09:38:43 -0700


I would like to inform you of some news that is happening here at Everything
Art that may be of interest. has initiated a discussion with a
distinguished panel of artists, theorists, critics and technologists.  It is
our intention to promote an exchange of ideas and elicit a discourse between
these minds on the subject of the future of art and its growing relationship
with technology.  Some of the panelists already have combined art, science
and technology together in their work - for example Stelarc and his robotic
sculptures like the Third Hand.  

I invite you to come and read what these groundbreaking artists have to say.
The discussions will last for the next 3 weeks and the results will be
published in our online magazine, Everything Art, on May 12th, 26th, and
June 9th.  

Some of the panelists participating in the forum are:  
	*	Dr. Rachel Armstrong-Russell - lecturer, TV presenter,
multimedia producer, medical doctor, author
	*	Alan Sondheim - writer, artist, theorist, co-moderator of
the Fiction of Philosophy, Cybermind and Cyberculture email lists
	*	Tina Keane - lecturer at St. Martin's College, researcher
for Digital Creativity, artist in installation, film, video, and the digital
	*	Bracha Lichtenberg - artist, theorist, and psychoanalyst
	*	Davide De Angelis - multimedia artist, art director and
designer for 2 David Bowie albums
	*	Dr. Alf Linney - professor of Medical Physics &
Bioengineering at University College, London
	*	Brett Stalbaum - senior editor of Switch, San Jose State
	*	Simon Biggs - artist and professor of Research (Fine Art) at
Sheffield Hallam University
	*	Stelarc - performance artist, sculptor (Third Hand, Virtual
Arm, Virtual Body and Stomach Sculpture), Honorary Professor of Art and
Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University and a Senior Research Scholar at
Nottingham Trent University

Our panelists will be faced with some interesting topics and questions
dealing with science, technology, religion and art: why have science and art
been 2 opposing cultures!  When/where/how and if science and art will
converge?  What is the future of art?

I am interested in exploring opportunities for a feature, events mention or
link on your website, or possibly coordinating an email alert to your
membership regarding this forum.
Please visit our site <> and in particular, have a
look at Everything Art magazine at <>.   
I hope that this event will be of interest to you and your membership and
look forward to hearing from you soon.
Best Regards,
Lincoln Hui

Wayne Irkok, Grade 9 Student Summer Employee, Arviat, Nunavut, Canada 
During our trip to Dionne lake, we stayed in a camp for four weeks on the
land learning and making stories. We learned a lot about the land and our
traditional way of life. Our supervisor was Donald Sr. Uluadluak. Donald
taught us many things about hunting, trapping and boating. We went to a six
mile field trip by foot and collected terms and definitions from what we saw
and learned from the land.  

On July 10, 1998 we went back to Arviat to put all the definitions and
stories into computers and scanned images that were drawn by Donald. We put
all the works into a web-site.  

This Web site was made in the summer of 1998 by students at Qitiqliq High
School with help from volunteers, project staff and a local Web design

The Stockholm Challenge Conference will relate to the global character of
the Award´s program and to the contents of the Exhibition. One scheduled
topic will be: In what ways will the growing use of information technology
challenge and change the structures and hierarchies of our working lives?

PATTON's legendary performance is a recent incarnation of a rich tradition 
of performance in L.A. including local luminaries Mike Kelley, Chris Burden 
and Paul McCarthy. The performance involves a 23 minute live version of the 
Allman Brothers' song Whipping Post being played by the artists using only 
his index finger to turn the record on the turntable of an uplugged deck. 
David Patton's visit to Australia has been organised by Metro Arts.
REVOLUTIONS is a an emersive sensory 3D environment filled with the 
rhythmic space and tonal experimentation of turbulence, air movement and 
environmental phenomena created by SCOTT HORSCROFT. The performance is a 
hybrid of natural phenomena and digital manipulation composed into an 
active environment of illusion, movement and perceptive stimulation.

Subject: Project Information "Sustainable Propaganda"


a project by Oliver Ressler
in cooperation with Kunstverein Nuernberg
opening in the Katharines‘ ruin: 20.5.2000, 20:00

"The Expo is a project which as a whole, is a pioneer in naivete.
Technology and the future are presented in an unbelievably naive context
in which all of the problems are ignored. A truly childlike belief in
technology and the market’s healing powers is produced which the
sustainability debate has obviously not had the confidence to enter.
This is because it is a direct corporate park.”
[Christoph Spehr in the video "Sustainable Propaganda”, 44 min.]

"Sustainability is an intensification of capitalism and above all a
legitimization of domination, that more technology is underway,
primarily Hi-Tech. After all, not everyone has access to it, only
particular companies and industrial nations who then merely demand their
continued claim to leadership of this world.”
[Jörg Bergstedt in the Video "Sustainable Propaganda”, 44 min.]

The project "Sustainable Propaganda” (Nachhaltige Propaganda) confronts
"sustainable development”, the main theme of the world fair in Hannover
(June 1 to October 31, 2000). Under the motto "Human – Nature –
Technology” the Expo 2000 propagates that threatening environmental,
developmental and population problems can be solved by technology.
Although science and technology are indeed named as "causes” of the
ecological crisis, at the same time they are considered part of the
Since the 1992 Rio Summit at the latest, the ecological question has
been articulated almost exclusively in terms of the world wide debate on
sustainable development. The discourse flows from questions of
modernization, down-sizing, efficiency, population control and future
technologies. Utopian ideas are replaced by the technocratic management
of nature. The sustainability debate is marked by an exclusion of the
dimension of domination; the ecological relations are separated from
relations of domination (i.e. between "North” and "South”).

In a gigantic self-display of capitalist power, the future viability of
the system should be proven at the Expo 2000. For the first time in the
world fair’s history, the central exhibition area in Hannover is not the
exclusive presentation platform. So-called "world-wide projects” in
various cities and countries should also show solutions to ecological
and economic problems. The Expo offers itself as a symbolic battlefield
to make other social developments and designs visible. 

In the project "Sustainable Propaganda”, the ideologies displayed in the
Expo theme parks will be analyzed and alternative models of thought and
action presented. The models for a sustainable future are thus exposed
as domination strategies. In this aspect the project ties in with my
project "100 Years of the Greenhouse Effect” which I carried out in 1996
in Salzburg’s Kunstverein. 

The project "Sustainable Propaganda” consists of diverse elements: 
Computer produced visual material of the Disney-like settings in the
theme parks forms the starting point for a series of digital prints. The
Expo’s future designs are overlapped by a number of commentaries based
on a leftist analysis of hegemonic concepts of sustainability. The
commentaries are designed as dialogue boxes in the print series which
inform the computer user about problems. In the project "Sustainable
Propaganda” these "error messages” point out the flawed programming of
the content of the Expo 2000 and the inherent systematic errors of the
concept of sustainability. 

In the video "Sustainable Propaganda” the drafts for an ecologically
sustainable reformed global capitalism are criticized in additional
facets. Jörg Bergstedt (author of the book "Agenda, Expo, Sponsoring”,
1998), Sonya Schneider, Kai Kaschinski from the magazine Alaska and
mamba – working group for feminist Expo critique, present their points
of criticism in the conversations recorded for the video. In the second
part of the video, writer Christoph Spehr explains an alternative
concept for development which was discussed in the ‘90s in connection
with BUKO under the motto, "Winding down the North!” and places it in
contrast to the future scenarios of the Expo planners. 

"Nachhaltige Propaganda” is not an Expo project! 

After the presentation at the Katharinenruine the video/project will be
shown at the Kunstverein Nuernberg, Füll 12, 90403 Nuernberg, Germany
till June 11, 2000 (T: +49/911/24 15 62).

The project will be shown in an extended version from July 28 to August
13, 2000 in Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin.
