Subject: Photostatic Magazine 1983-1998

B a c k g r o u n d

Photostatic Magazine was a regular fixture and active proponent of 
the zine, audio art and DIY (do it yourself) counterculture that 
emerged during the 1980s. As a journal of so-called 'machine art', 
Photostatic managed to bring together artists working across the 
spectrum of contemporary disciplines, including photocopy art, 
collage, correspondence or mail art, concrete poetry, experimental 
works, graphic design, photography, sound and video art, humor, 
essays, reviews, journalism, and more.

In addition to this wide range of subject matter, Photostatic's 
contributors came from around the world; Japan, Australia, North and 
South America, and most nations of Europe, including many artists 
from the then-Warsaw Pact countries. Photostatic worked within a 
self-proclaimed 'Eternal Network', which made use of photocopy, 
typewriters, rubber stamps, glue sticks, handwriting and the 
international postal system; in perhaps much the same spirit as 
people blog, surf, chat, email and code web pages today.

A n n o u n c e m e n t

Photostatic's editor, Lloyd Dunn, is pleased to announce a new 
website devoted to historifying and archiving the project called 
Photostatic. This new site is intended to serve as a repository for a 
complete collection of Photostatic Magazine in electronic form 
(including its variant titles Retrofuturism and Psrf).

We further announce the immediate availability of the first issue in 
the PDF series,  Psrf 49 (October 1998), which was the final issue in 
the printed series. New postings will follow at approximately 
one-month intervals.

We post these versions, one at a time, in like manner to how they 
first appeared, in deference to the print publication's bimonthly 
schedule. We post them in reverse chronological order to form a 
mirror image in time of the original series. People entirely new to 
this content will therefore have the opportunity to see the work 
sequentially with its origins gradually unveiled, as opposed to how 
its creators saw it, inevitably in terms of an unfolding and 
surprising future.

Please visit the new site.

If you are a former Photostatic or Retrofuturism contributor, please 
take a moment to stop by and leave your comments.

Nadarajan considers the development of neologisms to engage art and 
technology and arrives at a concept of 'cyberarts'.

:: Long time editor, Roger Malina farewells Leonardo Electronic Almanac and 
passes the cyberbaton on to Nisar Keshvani.
:: Ugur Gudukbay and Tolga Abaci take us on step by step journey through a 
Hierarchical Modeling and Animation System for the Turkish Shadow Theater,

Subject: New publication: BORDER CROSSING SERVICES

Oliver Ressler, Martin Krenn, "Dienstleistung: Fluchthilfe/Border
Crossing Services”, Edition Selene, 52 p., ger./engl., ISBN:
3-85266-186-2, 2002, EURO 8,00.-
with contributions by Gerald Raunig, Carsten Does, etc.

The European Union member states' restrictive immigration regulations
mean that there is almost no chance to legally migrate to the EU and
reside in a member state. For those who want to enter, making use of
border crossing services is often the only possibility for penetrating
"Fortress Europe.”

The publication documents and discusses the project "Border Crossing
Services” by the artists Martin Krenn and Oliver Ressler, which was
realized in form of an exhibition in the "Kunstraum Lüneburg”, a video,
and a direct mailing with the title "Neues Grenzblatt” (New Border
Paper) in the Austrian/Slovenian border region in 2001. The goal of the
project "Border Crossing Services” is to redefine and highlight the
positive aspects of terms such as "smuggler” or "trafficker" which have
been given a negative connotation through the dominant medial discourse.
The publication includes a copy of the "Neues Grenzblatt" which was
realized in cooperation with anti-racist groups and migrant organizations.

the end of February)

                 Dealing With Harsh New Realities

Four days after INFOWARCON 2001 concluded, the very face of our world 
changed.  Since then, governments and commercial organizations have 
accelerated their efforts at defending the new Security Triad: Electronic, 
Physical and Personnel. The threats to critical infrastructures and 
government systems have never been higher, and increased cooperation is 
more necessary than ever before ­ here and throughout the world.

INFOWARCON 2002 will bring together political, military, and commercial 
leaders from around the world to discuss the latest in threats and defenses.

We are soliciting creative, analytic, real-world opinions and solutions 
that will function in:

- -=- Countering the threats of Global and National Cyberterrorism
- -=- National and Municipal Critical Infrastructure Protection
- -=- Military and Government Information Operations (Defense and

    Interested parties from government, law enforcement, academia,
    corporations, product vendors and individuals from all nations

Subject: Indymedia's Radio Group - D.R.O.P. project :: Broadcast: January 31st - February 4th

Indymedia's Radio Group - D.R.O.P. project will Produce a Live Internet
::  Broadcast:  Thursday   January   31st   -   Monday   February   4th.

For Immediate release, Monday, January 28th, 2002

1. The World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil
2. The World Economic Forum and protests in New York City
3. The Munich Conference on Security Policy protests in Munich
4. Additional Programming from India, the UK, San Francisco and Seattle,
   among others.

:: The World Economic Forum
Some very important people  are  missing  from  the  headlines  and  the
stories of the world's most influential economic institutions  like  the
International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the
Free  Trade  Area  of  the  Americas.    The   real   players--corporate
representatives--meet for the World Economic Forum (WEF)  this  year  in
New York City with minimal remote press access.  Teach-ins and  protests
planned in New York City get to the heart of corporate globalization and
US economic power.

:: The World Social Forum
Also  missing  from  the  headlines  are  the  alternatives  devised  by
grassroots organizations and the world's non-elites.  Set to  happen  at
the same time as the WEF is the World  Social  Forum  in  Porto  Alegre,
Brazil, a conference exploring  such  alternatives  to  an  increasingly
standard corporate agenda.

:: The Munich Conference on Security Policy
This annual meeting brings together the  government  officials  and  the
military of NATO and the EU.  Much of the coalition behind the  military
coalitions that brought us the wars in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Iraq are
forged in conferences like  this  security  conference.   The  last  few
months have seen military coalition involvement from Japan  and  Germany
unprecedented since WWII.  European  activists  are  planning  to  bring
their message held by most of the world:  not  to  expand  the  "War  on
Terrorism" to more countries.

During our broadcast, Stations can:
1. Stream the live broadcast any time
2. Download audio highlights from the live stream for broadcast; or

   stories and wrap-ups.

Since the WTO protests in Seattle, 1999, the  Independent  Media  Center
(IMC) has been covering the voices  of  those  critiquing  these  global
institutions and their impact on democratic structures,  then  streaming
it over the internet.  Likewise, the  IMC  will  produce  live  breaking
coverage of the forums and protests in Brazil,  New  York,  and  Munich.
Hundreds of media activists will be calling in reports, conducting phone

DIAN - Digital Interactive Artists' Network -
Our focus for the month of February is SHIRIN KOULADJIE. We proudly
present her work :


n3xt is a series of loops, with the emphasis on plain space around
objects, exaggerated movements and sound.

As I learned the value of using repetitious elements and silence, there
came a corresponding use in the choice and arrangement of my
compositions. Certain schemes begin to produce an idea in the mind when
they are seen or heard, some a peaceful image - a most welcome contrast
to the feeling of confusion and unrest caused by a crowded life style
and a busy mind. Experiments show that an individual has the capacity to
enjoy only a limited number of things at one time and that when this
amount has been exceeded one actually sees less rather than more. An
object gains importance when it is separated from the things around it-
a few frames of a movie take a new life of their own when they are cut
from their environment: A new thought is born.

DIAN - Digital Interactive Artists´ Network - is a network for artists
who are seriously involved in using Internet technology in the domain of
contemporary art. We are deeply interested in artists working in this

As a labour of love, I've built a little webzine featuring "Linux news
for the rest of us." Currently, it's a pretty quiet party and I haven't
posted its existence much, but I believe that it could do with a more
lively audience and so submit it to nettimers. Welcome and enjoy.
