rhein.tanzmedia.web // statement of the jury

We would like to thank the artists for participating in the first 
rhein.tanzmedia.web ( international 
competition for net/ dance/ performance. The entries were extraordinarily 
diverse in the ways in which they proposed to explore the relationship 
between dance and the internet or related online communication systems. 
This has made the experience of selecting amongst them a difficult as well 
as fascinating one, and the decisions we have made after one and half days 
of deliberation reflect this variety.

The Jury awarded 3 prizes: the for production and 
presentation of the project, the Förderpreis der rhein land ag and a 
special research award of the jury. For the, we 
have selected the proposal of media artist Rebecca Allen with 
choreographers/ performers Hannah Sim and Mark Steger of the performance 
group Osseus Labyrint. This project will comprise an interactive media art 
installation linked to a live performance in another location with a 
simultaneous presentation via the web. There were several entries proposing 
to work with similar ideas, but in our opinion the collaboration of Rebecca 
Allen and Osseus Labyrint put forward the strongest integration of the raw 
corporeality of live performance with remote and mediated presences in 
which the shifting definition of audience, viewer and/ or participant is 

For the Förderpreis der rhein land ag, we have selected the proposal of 
choreographer/ researcher Ivar Hagendoorn entitled "The Fisher Account" in 
which the financial data that is moving continuously across the Internet is 
dynamically linked to a database of pre-recorded movement and movement 
sequences. Appropriating different forms of streaming data found on the 
internet to manipulate digital materials resident on a server's hard drive 
is a formal strategy explored by net and media artists for some time now. 
However, to our knowledge the connection between dance composition and 
choreographic ideas and what is essentially the live (electronic) presence 
of the internet had not been explicitly made. To choose to do this using 
the flowing pattern of bits from something as rich in significance as the 
world's financial markets presents a unique set of possibilities, and we 
look forward to seeing the realisation of this project on the web.

Although these two projects will be produced by the organisers of the 
competition (with a total amount of approx. 90.000,- Euro), the 
rhein.tanzmedia.web prize was intended to be a "competition of ideas" 
rather than finished productions. There were a number of interesting 
proposals from young artists that we felt could be more fruitfully explored 
in the context of 'research' without the expectation of final production or 

Therefore the Jury argued for and was given the opportunity to confer upon 
Stephanie Thiersch and Micha Purucker a special award for continuing their 
research into "the possibilities of representations of kinaesthetic and 
sensuous experiences without their actual presence". This special award of 
the jury has a purse of 5000,- Euro.
The jury would like to thank the organisers of the competition for their 
hard work and vision in setting up this opportunity to further the 
inter-disciplinary explorations within the field of dance overlapping with 
emerging technologies. We look forward to seeing the outcomes of the three 
projects selected for the support provided by the competition.

Mez- [Mary-Anne Breeze] belongs to a new generation of artists
who use the environment of the Internet as their artistic medium.

She has been described as one of "the original net.artists"
who is "...without doubt one of the most consistent, prolific,
innovative artists working in new media today.
Mez's work with language has had a considerable effect on the language of
The impact of her unique net.wurks
[constructed via her pioneering net.language "mezangelle"]
has been equated with the work of Shakespeare, James Joyce,
Emily Dickinson, e.e. cummings and Larry Wall.

Mez has exhibited extensively since the early 90's -
both via the internet and in "realtime" [e.g CTHEORY's Digital Dirt,
Prague's Goethe Institute, Digitarts '96, Experimenta Media Arts,
ISEA_97 Chicago, ARS Electronica_97, trAce, The Metropolitan Museum Tokyo,

From: marko peljhan <>

makrolab 2002 has two calls for proposals:
- - for artist, strategic and tactical information analysts
- - scientists and social scientists go to

Please review both.
Deadline for submissions to Projekt Atol extented until FEBRUARY 28,

International Art / Science / Strategy / Tactics
Research Residency Programme:
Call for Proposals

MAKROLAB - Summer 2002
Atholl Estate, Perthshire, Scotland

The Arts Catalyst and Projekt Atol, offer research residencies at the
MAKROLAB in May, June, and July 2002 on the Atholl Estate in Perthshire,

Scotland. This opportunity takes place during the International Year of
Mountains, declared by the UN General Assembly.
The aim of the residency programme is to provide artists, strategic and
tactical information analysts, scientists and social scientists
(separate information sheet for scientists - see - with space and facilities

to undertake their own research in the global systems of:
MIGRATIONS and give them the opportunity to fully concentrate on their
work and interact in a creative and challenging dialogue with other
members of the crew.
We are also interested to receive proposals from artists for residencies

to develop activities and projects with the local community and schools
exploring these themes. This work could be the sole aspect of your
application or alongside your research.
The MAKROLAB is a temporary sustainable research base, with living space

for 4 - 6 people. It will be connected to the internet through a
microwave link and equipped for transmitting signals on HF, VHF, UHF
ranges and receiving signals in the ranges of 0.1 - 2000 MHz and the C
and Ku bands.
The Atholl Estate is one of the largest estates in Scotland, situated on

the edge of the Cairngorm mountains. The MAKROLAB will be situated in
the Clunes Beat of the Atholl Estate. This is an area of rolling heather

moorland with steep slopes nearby rising to the high tops of the
southern side of the Cairngorm massif.
We are looking for participants who will welcome the opportunity not
only to undertake their own research in this environment, but who are
also interested in the interdisciplinary aspects of this project.

Details of Opportunity

Length of stay on MAKROLAB: between 2 weeks to 3 months, depending on
the requirements of the research to be undertaken.

Stipend: £100 per week. Food and accommodation provided on the MAKROLAB.

Travel will be provided from within the UK. Overseas applicants will
have to pay for their own travel to the UK.
Special travel grants could be provided on a case to case basis by
Projekt Atol.

The duties of participants are to fully take part in the MAKROLAB daily
task activities, which include:
- - one daily video conference with the interested audience and observers;

- - systems management, repair and overhaul;
- - writing a diary of their daily work, schedule and publishing their
results on the MAKROLAB web-site.
All personally produced material remains in the ownership of the
participants, but they must agree to share all the material with the
MAKROLAB project partners and crew.

The participants must be aware that they will work and live in a very
small, concentrated and challenging environment.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own networkable computers,
preferably notebooks, and any other equipment required for their
research that is not provided as standard on the MAKROLAB.

Participants are selected on a competitive basis.

Background Information

The MAKROLAB is a high-tech, art-science project designed by Slovenian
artist Marko Peljhan and managed by the Projekt Atol Institute. It is a
temporary sustainable laboratory designed to support 4 - 6 artists and
scientists working and living alongside each other in isolation for
periods of up to 120 days.

The project is organised by UK science-art agency, the Arts Catalyst,
with Projekt Atol, Slovenia, in partnership with the Atholl Estate, the
Centre for Mountain Studies at Perth College (an Academic Partner of the

UHI Millennium Institute) and the Tramway in Glasgow.

The MAKROLAB models a new kind of activity, sitting astride the
traditional disciplinary divides. Its presence at Atholl Estate is
intended to be high-impact in the realm of artistic and scientific
information and education, yet low-profile in the physical environment.
It arrives in a container and after set up is plugged into
communications networks and satellite links. It produces its own power
from wind and solar panels.

MAKROLAB will be sited in the Tramway, Glasgow for two weeks in April
2002 prior to moving to the Atholl Estate.

Global Public The New World Order of Broadcasting

Donnerstag, 7.2., 20.30 Uhr
Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin

in Kooperation mit der Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung

Am kommenden Donnerstag wird Ibrahim M. Helal, der Chefredakteur des arabischen Senders Al Dschasira aus Katar, im Berliner Haus der Kulturen der Welt an einer Konferenz über die 'Neue Weltordnung des Rundfunks'
teilnehmen. Gemeinsam mit Günter Knabe, Leiter der Asien-Redaktion bei der Deutschen Welle, und Han Soete, dem Sprecher des Indymedia-Netzwerks Belgien, wird Helal über Globalisierung und Digitalisierung in den Medien diskutieren. Die Konferenz, eine Kooperation von transmediale und  Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, wird moderiert von Claudia Henne (SFB Radio Kultur) und behandelt das Entstehen einer 'Welt-Öffentlichkeit' und die kulturellen Folgen einer beschleunigten, von Satellit und Internet gestützten Berichterstattung.

Die Globalisierung ist nicht allein ein ökonomisches und politisches Phänomen. Sie ereignet sich auch ganz maßgeblich in den Medien, die immer häufiger eine mediale Weltöffentlichkeit an globalen Ereignissen teilnehmen lassen. Schätzungen behaupten, dass am 11. September 2001 innerhalb von weniger als einer Stunde über 1 Milliarde Menschen Live-Bilder des Angriffs auf das World Trade Center in New York gesehen haben.

Die Rahmenbedingungen globaler Medienberichterstattung haben sich in den letzten Jahren tiefgreifend geändert. Dabei verschwinden durch das Nebeneinander von Satelliten-, Internet- und terrestrischen Übertragungskanälen die Grenzen zwischen weltumspannenden Konzernen wie BBC oder CNN, regionalen Medien wie dem arabischen Sender Al Jazeera oder dem medienaktivistischen Netzwerk Indymedia. Al Jazeera zeichnet sich dabei durch eine für die arabische Welt ungewöhnliche Offenheit aus und schafft einen neuen Zusammenhalt in der internationalen arabischen Diaspora, bei Exilanten wie Arbeitsmigranten.

Nachrichten und Berichterstattung stoßen an ihre Grenzen, wenn sich die
damit verbundenen Inhalte nicht mehr eindeutig vermitteln lassen - was
bedeutet ein Videoband von Osama Bin Laden in Kabul, in Gaza, in
Washington, in Berlin? Wie lassen sich weltweit gültige Inhalte vermitteln,
wenn die Bilder sich stärker beschleunigen als ihr Verständnis? Erwartet
uns eine globale Homogenisierung der Medien oder eine Vervielfältigung
kulturell spezifischer Kanäle, die jeweils nur von bestimmten
Publikumsgruppen verstanden werden? Vertreter verschiedener Medien
diskutieren die 'neue Weltordnung' des Rundfunks.

 Global Public The New World Order of Broadcasting

 Thursday, 7.2., 20.30 hrs
 Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin
 in cooperation with Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung

Next Thursday, Ibrahim M. Helal, Chief Editor of the Arabic broadcaster Al
Jazeera from Qatar, will be participating in a conference about the 'New
World Order of Broadcasting' at Berlin's House of World Cultures. Together
with Günter Knabe, Head of the Asia Department of Deutsche Welle, and Han Soete, Speaker of Indymedia Belgium, Helal will be discussing globalisation and digitaisation in the media. The conference - a cooperation of transmediale and Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung - will be moderated by Claudia Henne of SFB Radio and will deal with the emergence of a 'Global Public' and the cultural effects of accelerated, satellite- and
internet-supported reporting.

Globalisation is not merely an economic and political phenomenon. It is
also taking place to a substantial degree in the media which increasingly
enable a connected audience worldwide to take part live in global events.
Estimates say that on September 11, 2001, more than 1 Billion spectators
watched the live-broadcast images of the attack against the World Trade
Center in New York.

The conditions for global media reportage have changed fundamentally over
the past years. The co-existence of satellite, internet, and terrestrial
broadcasting channels has led to the disappearance of the boundaries
between global concerns such as CNN or the BBC, regional stations such as
the Arabic network Al Jazeera, or the media activist network Indymedia. Al
Jazeera is characterized by a, by Arabian standards, unusually
straightforward coverage and creates a new cohesion within the
international Arabic diaspora, among exiles as well as working migrants.

News broadcasting and reporting reach their limits when their contents can
no longer be communicated with a clear and singular meaning - which
connotation does a video-tape of Osama Bin Laden have in Kabul, in Gaza, in Washington, in Berlin? How to procure globally significant contents when images accelerated faster than their comprehension? Should we expect a global homogenisation of the media, or a multiplication of channels, each with a specific cultural background which can only be understood by the respective audiences? Representatives of different media discuss the 'new world order' of broadcasting.

Subject: Free Radio Linux - audio distribition of Linux - launching 03.02.02

Hi there,

Just wanted to let you know about a new project, Free Radio Linux - a distribution of the Linux Kernal.
You can read about it below, or at Linux Today:


Honor Harger


r   a   d   i   o   q   u   a   l   i   a


03.02.02 -> 2003
0000  [ GMT ]
0100  [ Central European Time ]
1900  [ US Eastern Standard Time - 02.02.02 ]
0530  [ Indian Standard Time ]
1100  [ Australian Eastern Summer Time ]
1300  [ New Zealand Time ]

The time is GMT 00:30, 03.02.02.

It's February 3, the fourth anniversary of the day the Open Source
Initiative <> coined the term 'open source' as a
label for freely published source code
To mark this occasion, r a d i o q u a l i a are launching the first distribution of the world's most popular open source software -
the operating system, Linux.

Free Radio Linux is an online and on-air radio station. The sound
transmission is a computerised reading of the entire source code used to
create the Linux Kernel, the basis of all distributions of Linux.

Each line of code is read by an automated computer voice - a
utility built by r a d i o q u a l i a.  The's output is encoded
into an audio stream, using the open source codec, Ogg Vorbis
<>, and sent out live on the internet.  FM, AM and
Shortwave radio stations from around the world will also relay the audio
stream on various occasions.

The Linux kernel contains 4,141,432 millions lines of code.  Reading the
entire kernel will take an estimated 14253.43 hours, or 593.89 days.
Listeners can track the progress of Free Radio Linux by listening to the
audio stream, or checking the text-based progress field in the ./listen
section of the website <>


Since Finnish programmer Linus Torvalds
<http://www.cs.Helsinki.FI/u/torvalds/> started development of the
operating system, Linux in 1991, the collaborative model of software
development has reached profound new heights.  Consisting of millions of
lines of source code, Linux has been mutated, improved and sent spiraling
off into new directions by literally thousands of programmers from all
around the world. This is because Torvalds promoted a simple approach to
the development of Linux: he made the code available for users of the
operating system to read, view and alter. Sharing their ideas on the
software and potential improvements was a core part of Torvalds' ethic.
Due to the extraordinary success of Linux, the ethic of code sharing has
reached new heights of popularity. Code sharing is no longer a process
specific to computer science, rather it has become an ideology embraced by
business, the computer using public, and a multitude of cultural, artistic
and academic sectors. When Linux won one of electronic art's most
prestigious prizes, the Prix Ars Electronica
<> for .net excellence
in 1999, Open Source completed its journey from a prosaic functional
process to a phenomenon verging on art.


In the hierarchy of media, radio reigns. There are more computers than
modems, more phones than computers, and more radios than phones. Radio is
the closest we have to an egalitarian method of information distribution.
Free Radio Linux advocates that radio is the best method for distributing
the world's most popular free software.

Free Radio Linux is therefore be a networked broadcast system, transmitting
on ether-net via open source audio codec, Ogg Vorbis and relayed on AM,
Shortwave and FM frequencies, by a collection of ham radio amateurs and
radio professionals.

Free Radio Linux also continues the tradition of FM 'code stations' of the
early-mid eighties. These stations were pirate broadcasters who distributed
bootleg software programmes via radio transmitters, allowing early hackers
with home computers, such as Sinclair ZX80-81s, Commodore 64s, and Acorns,
to demodulate the signal through a modem and run the code. The modern day
equivalent, Free Radio Linux, similarly enables anyone with notepad to
transcribe the code and utilise it at his or her convenience.


To listen to Free Radio Linux online, users must have:
- - a computer
- - an internet connection
- - an MP3 Player
- - the Ogg Vorbis codec

MP3 players and the Ogg Vorbis codec can be downloaded from the ./listen
section of the Free Radio Linux website:
Ogg Vorbis is compatible with Linux, Windows and Max OSX operating systems.

- -------------->  Ogg Vorbis + Icecast
Free Radio Linux utilises Ogg Vorbis because it is one of the only open
source streaming audio codecs available.  Whereas, MP3 is a patented
technology (owned by Fraunhofer IIS-A <>, Thomson,
and others ) Ogg Vorbis is a free, open, and unpatented.

Encoding is enabled using the free Oddsock DSP plugin for Winamp. This
encoder converts the live audio input from the into a streaming
Ogg Vorbis file. This file is then sent as a 'continuous stream' to the
Free Radio Linux is served via a Icecast2 <> server
for Unix, located at Montevideo <> in Amsterdam.
This server is part of the Open Source Streaming Alliance

- -------------->
Free Radio Linux is enabled by a, which opens each individual
page of the Linux kernel and converts the text to speech. Punctuation and
special characters are read as Latin Unicode . For example '=' is read as
'equals sign'.


Free Radio Linux is commissioned by Gallery 9/Walker Art Center
<> with the support of the Jerome Foundation, USA.
