Art, Technology, Consciousness
mind @large
Roy Ascott (ed)

This popular title, now in paper back, presents the most up-to-date
discussions in the intersection between Art, Technology and Consciousness
and brings a whole new set of perspectives to this complex and compelling

Developing on the studies published in Roy Ascott's successful Reframing
Consciousness, this volume documents the very latest work from those
connected with the internationally acclaimed CAiiA-STAR centre. Their
artistic and theoretical research in new media and art includes aspects of:

. artificial life . robotics . technoetics . performance . computer music .
intelligent architecture . telematic art

The contributions to this volume represent the work produced at conferences
and in journals which are only now emerging into more accessible literature.
With profound insights for those in fields of Art, Media and Design - both
academics and professionals - this book will also provide new ideas for
software designers working on material to be used by the arts community.

These artists have been involved in a variety of public exhibitions and the
vast majority of their work is available online. Internet references
throughout make this book a window for the reader to a large collection on
online art projects.

Art, Technology, Consciousness will be published in 2002. For a paperback
copy (ISBN: 1-84150-073-9 ) at £19.95, order from all good online bookshops,
from your local bookseller, or contact the publisher directly: Intellect, PO

> > > > Synopsis: The 12hr-ISBN-JPEG Project began December 30, 1994. A
`round-the-clock posting of sequenced hypermodern imagery from Brad Brace.
The hypermodern minimizes the familiar, the known, the recognizable; it
suspends identity, relations and history. This discourse, far from
determining the locus in which it speaks, is avoiding the ground on which
it could find support. It is trying to operate a decentering that leaves
no privilege to any center. 

                       The 12-hour ISBN JPEG Project        
                          began December 30, 1994

  Pointless Hypermodern Imagery... posted/mailed every 12 hours... a
spectral, trajective alignment for the 00`s! A continuum of minimalist
masks in the face of catastrophe; conjuring up transformative metaphors
for the everyday... A poetic reversibility of exclusive events... 

	A post-rhetorical, continuous, apparently random sequence of
imagery...  genuine gritty, greyscale...  corruptable, compact,
collectable and compelling convergence. The voluptuousness of the grey
imminence: the art of making the other disappear. Continual visual impact;
an optical drumming, sculpted in duration, on the endless present of the

  An extension of the printed ISBN-Book (0-9690745) series... critically
unassimilable... imagery is gradually acquired, selected and re-sequenced
over time...  ineluctable, vertiginous connections. The 12hr dialtone...

~ This interminable, relentless sequence of imagery began in earnest on
December 30, 1994. The basic structure of the project has been over
twenty-four years in the making. While the specific sequence of
photographs has been presently orchestrated for more than 12 years` worth
of 12-hour postings, I will undoubtedly be tempted to tweak the ongoing
publication with additional new interjected imagery. Each 12-hour posting
is like the turning of a page; providing ample time for reflection,
interruption, and assimilation.

Old Italy, new facism


                                        Translated by Ed Emery



Why Israel still needs Arafat


     Yasser Arafat did not break with the Oslo peace accords,
     nor did he refuse Ehud Barak's famous "generous offer" at
     Camp David at least according to new books written by
     Israelis present at negotiations with Arafat (see
     'Constructing catastrophe'). Many Israelis believe, after
     25 years of national denial, that Arafat is still the
     only potential partner who can deliver peace.

                              Translated by Wendy Kristianasen


Conducting catastrophe *


     What really happened at Camp David? Three books by
     Israelis who were involved in the peace negotiations both
     reveal and conceal Ehud Barak's strategies and the parts
     that the authors themselves played in the events.

The high cost of living


     The world's largest pharmaceuticals company, Pfizer, and
     10 others have promised to give the US Congress General
     Accounting Office all the data it needs to check drug
     prices. Like Europe, the US is concerned about the
     massive profits made by the pharmaceuticals industry. In
     rich countries, the laboratories' pricing policies are a
     scam; in poor countries, they are preventing most people
     from getting treatment. Stavudine, used to treat Aids, is
     the perfect demonstration of what is wrong with the
     system. It hugely profits its makers and Yale University,
     where it was researched.

Drug deals in Europe *


                               Translated by Malcolm Greenwood


Enron: Elvis lives *


     The collapse of Enron is one of the biggest scandals in
     US economic history. Besides ruining many of its
     employees and wiping out their pensions, the affair
     reveals the cynicism of the directors, the links between
     US politics and multinationals, and the weird practices
     of auditors.

                                      Original text in English


Argentina's nouveaux pauvres *


     For 25 years the rich in Argentina have grown richer, the
     state has been dismantled and the country's industries
     run down. In December the people rose in revolt. The two
     political parties the Peronists and the Radicals that
     have historically governed the country have been swept
     away, together with the ruling elite. The international
     community wants Argentina to adopt a coherent and
     sustainable programme presumably to protect the interests
     of multinationals, creditors and the IMF.

Xinjiang: China's wild west *

by our special correspondent ILARIA MARIA SALA

     China supports the international coalition against
     terrorism mostly to get acceptance for its policy of
     repression in the Muslim province of Xinjiang, which
     isn't working. Beijing has failed to contain Uighur
     nationalism and there has also been a new upsurge of
     Islamic militancy in the region.

Russia's nuclear sewer *

by our special correspondent NATHALIE MELIS

     A journalist was sent to prison for four years last year
     after filming the Russian navy dumping radioactive waste
     into the Sea of Japan. He, like many other Russians and
     environmental organisations, opposed the new laws that
     allow the privately profitable import of foreign nuclear

Senegal: rap and wait *

by our special correspondent ANNE-CÉCILE ROBERT

     Senegal, once the showpiece of francophone Africa, has
     suffered over 20 years from the financial change demanded
     by international investors. It is now classed as one of
     the world's least developed countries, and poverty and
     unemployment force many people to live hand to mouth.
     Their patience with the coalition elected in 2000 may be
     running out.

Subject: Autonogram 10: Saints / Help / Exchange / Lab

Greetings and hello again --

Here's your irregular update about the goings-on and 
grindstone-nosings here at Autonomedia HQ. It's a fairly brief list 
this time, but don't take that as a sign of our slackness. We all 
managed to survive the meetings of the World Economic Forum here 
recently, with several of us covering events for the independent 
media, participating in the various counter-summits, maintaining the 
barricades with the Anarchist Kazoo Block, and so forth. We also 
hosted a serialized novella about the disturbances at the WEF 
meetings, which generated a fair amount of interest in the days 
before the meetings opened (most notably from inside the WEF, as well 
as from at least one member of the Special Investigations unit of the 
Swiss government). The novella is still viewable at

Another Autonomedia-related activity related to the WEF meetings was 
a net strike against the WEF web site, sponsored by the Electronic 
Disturbance Theatre, in which a massive number of requests for the 
WEF site may have resulted in a denial of service of the site's 
server. This neatly fits into the rubric of "hacktivism", which is 
also the title of a forthcoming collection edited by the Electronic 
Disturbance Theatre. More on all of this can be found at

And without further ado, here's your Autonogram 10.

"Help Yourself!" is the newest discharge in the Unbearables' series 
of blasts on American culture, in which they dismantle, parody, and 
otherwise mangle the literary tradition of the Self Help Book. More 
than 75 individual contributors took on the topic, and in their 
Unbearable tradition, demolish the myths of self help in more than 75 
ways. There are far too many people and topics involved in this to 
list them adequately here, but click on for a full table of contents, 
Jim Feast's introduction to the book, and information on how to order 
the thing.

Here's another plug for the Info Exchange on our website, found at Recent articles have focussed on, among 
other things, the World Economic Forum and its discontents, the World 
Social Forum, an interview with Toni Negri on the state of empire 
after 9/11, the Enron debacle, and the seizure and 

Of particular note, though, are Bill Weinberg's regular World War 3 
reports, subtitled a "Vigilant, Independent Sentinel of Truth in the 
War on Terrorism," which is itself something of an understatement. 
Weinberg, who you may know as a host of WBAI's "Moorish Orthodox 
Radio Crusade" and as a co-editor of our book "Avant Gardening", has 
been issuing this weekly newsletter since the bombing campaign began 
in October. He casts a wide net in examining the many effects of this 
war, dividing his reports into digestable individual items organized 
by area of import: Afghanistan, the Middle East, the War at Home, New 
York City, and "Watching the Shadows," in which his skills at 
investigative journalism shine the brightest. He also has included 
special reports on Enron and the WEF, in an effort to tie these 
issues into the larger war culture. For the World War 3 report for 
February 9, please click the link below:

Also, when you visit the Info Exchange, you'll notice a new "Make a 
Donation" button on the left side of the page. This is something 
we're trying out in an effort to offset the hosting costs for the 
Info Exchange. The site has been expensive to run, and for a little 
while it looked like we were going to lose our shirts on it; whereas 
that situation has cooled down somewhat, it's still a little pricey 
for us, and we're not too proud to get out our coffee cups and do 
some spare changing. If you find the Info Exchange useful and happen 
to have some spare money lying around, by all means, feel free to 
send some our way! The Info Exchange is a joint project of 
Autonomedia and ABC No Rio (the venerable Lower East Side community 
arts center), both of which are legally charitable institutions ready 
to give tax write-offs, so if you need a tax break with your 
difficult-to-find radical news and dynamic gabfest, well then, please 
do click the "Contribute!" button. Thanks.

Autonomadic props go out to Kevin Pyle, who was honored by the 
Society of Illustrators with a Silver Medal for his book "Lab USA", 
which came out in July 2001. If you haven't seen the book yet, look 
at for a sample -- it's a 
terrifying, but very well-researched, visual history of abuse in the 
institutionalization of humans in the United States, particularly 
focussed on military and medical experimentation gone gruesome. His 
artwork is fantastic, and the stories he tells are both important and 
overlooked. And for a cute snapshot of Kevin and his new son Calvin,

Finally, if you're anywhere near New York City, do come down to the 
Theatorium on Stanton Street to see the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus's

with the Autonomadic Bookmobile Roadshow. The show this season takes 
a western theme, and is mouth-wateringly titled "Buckaroo

ladies and gennelmen, and have a look at 
They've got the best radical vaudeville show NYC has to offer. Hooray

Subject: new After 9/11 book from AlterNet

Dear AlterNet community members --

AlterNet is proud to announce the publication of an important new book:
"After 9/11: Solutions for a Saner World"

This diverse collection of 42 articles untangles the knot of our new
post-9/11 landscape. It features leading writers like Bill Moyers,
Barbara Kingsolver, Jim Hightower, Barbara Ehrenreich, Edward Said,
Arianna Huffington, Laura Flanders, Nat Hentoff and Arundhati Roy.

For more information, or to order a copy online, go to:

"After 9/11" tackles every subject from civil liberties to Islamic
fundamentalism to economics to sex. It goes beyond America's initial
grief and anger, providing vision for a saner, safer future.

If we are to steer the national conversation away from knee-jerk
flag-waving and scare tactic, and toward solutions and true security,
this book needs to reach farther than the growing AlterNet community.

So we need your help. We encourage you to not only pick up a copy
for your own family, but also to introduce "After 9/11" into your
communities -- your local bookstores, your houses of worship, your
classrooms, your community centers and wherever else people gather.
And please forward this email to anyone you think might be
interested in a copy.

Subject: M/C Call for Contributors for 'urban'

This posting contains a call for contributors for the upcoming issue of 
M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture:

                   M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture

                          Call for Contributors

The University of Queensland's award-winning journal of media and culture,
M/C, is looking for new contributors. M/C is a crossover journal between
the popular and the academic, and a blind- and peer-reviewed journal.

To see what M/C is all about, check out our Website, which contains all the
issues released so far, at <>. To find
out how and in what format to contribute your work, visit
<>. We're also welcoming
submissions to our sister publication M/C Reviews, an ongoing series of
reviews of events in culture and the media. M/C Reviews is available at

We are now accepting submissions for the following issue:

                 'urban' - article deadline: 11 March 2002
                issue editors: Liz Ferrier & Laurie Johnson

The increasingly urbanised nature of Western society raises a number of
questions. What is the social significance of increasingly large
collections of houses? Are we more or less secure in an urban environment?
How has urbanity changed over the centuries? Indeed, given that "urbanity"
indicates both urban life and a suave manner, are these concepts related or
is it merely semantic coincidence? How does behaviour and urban environment
interact? As these issues feed off one another, other questions arise. For
the 'urban' issue of M/C, editors invite pieces relating to the town or
city. These interventions may take any form, and may address any
manifestation of urbanity: the city in novels, in films or in television,
urban spaces in art, or art's space in the urban environment, urban
dwellers or urban landscapes, rebuilding or reclaiming, political or social
urban manifestations.

                   issue release date: 10 April 2002

Further issue topics for 2002:

'colour'      (deadline  6 May  / release  5 June)
'loop'        (deadline  1 July / release 31 July)
'self'        (deadline 26 Aug. / release 25 Sep.)
'love'        (deadline 21 Oct. / release 20 Nov.)

                                                     Axel Bruns
