Dear Solaris subscribers,

At OneWorld we have been developing our use of video on the Internet - we
believe that this aspect of ICT represents a powerful and largely unrealised
tool to raise the impact of organisations working on human rights and
sustainable development. We are now in the process of publicly launching
OneWorld TV and details are below for your interest.

The UK newspaper The Guardian also has a piece on OneWorld TV this week,
available online here:,7558,764719,00.html

Many thanks,

Glen Tarman, Publicity Manager, OneWorld

OneWorld (, the international network that includes 
more than 1250 NGOs across the globe, now leverages that broad reach to empower 
ordinary people to tell their own video stories on OneWorld TV 
(  OneWorld’s online interactive TV provides tools 
to integrate each story with those on similar topics from peers in other 

This radical approach marries the power of video with the Internet for
collaborative storytelling that helps complex issues come to life in the era of

“The future for video on the web is all about the immediacy of raw clips
from filmmakers themselves. For us, it means people on the frontline of
human rights stories who have a camcorder and can access the Internet to
place their footage on OneWorld TV,” says Peter Armstrong, Director of
OneWorld International and for 20 years an award-winning filmmaker for the

“Video offers a powerful medium that more and more people can use. We have
devised a format that prompts users to explore stories about climate change,
AIDS or the Middle East conflict in a totally new and interactive way.”

In developing this unique ‘open documentary’ software, OneWorld TV
encourages contributors in different countries to upload their own stories
to the site and to add clips to other people’s stories as part of this new
collaborative approach to storytelling online. OneWorld TV has been
developing links with a growing community of filmmakers, video journalists
and other contributors around the world. Their input is vital to put in
place each piece of the OneWorld TV global jigsaw.

Interactivity is the key to the process, not only in enabling producers to
edit and upload coverage from their laptop wherever they might be, but also in
offering the user a unique experience whereby he or she can choose their own
path through a given story landscape.

Watching OneWorld TV at a recent London BAFTA preview renowned film director
Mike Figgis concluded: “OneWorld TV is an impressive response to a global media
system that all too often is filtering out both innovation in film-making and
the wider communication of social issues to citizens around world. If you are a
filmmaker concerned about what's going on in our world today, add your stories
to OneWorld TV and join this radical network at the cutting edge of technology
and social change."

One organisation that has already seen the possibilities OneWorld TV offers is
Amnesty International. Their video reports investigating recent events in the
West Bank have been uploaded to the site. Amnesty’s Dan Thurley says: "OneWorld
TV is an exciting new space for NGOs, video activists and filmmakers to take
video and human rights out onto the web.  It combines the Internet and digital
cameras in the fight to save lives and reduce human suffering."

Gaza-based filmmaker Tamer Mansour said: “OneWorld TV enables me to tell the 
stories that you never see on the news – stories from the frontline about 
people here waiting for a chance for peace to come.” Amir Terkel, an Israeli 
filmmaker based in San Francisco said: “As someone working to bring out the 
voices of peace and coexistence in our region overlooked by mainstream media, 
OneWorld TV is like a reward for all those years of frustration - a vital 
window to the world".  

Research shows that people in the West gain their view of the world primarily 
from television. Yet the amount of factual programmes on the lives and issues 
affecting people in developing countries is decreasing as mainstream TV becomes 
more commercial and entertainment based. OneWorld TV also aims to help redress 
this growing trend providing a forum to increase international understanding 
and informed action on world poverty, human rights and the environment.  

The technical capacity needed to access video online largely restricts the 
audience to developed countries. To counter-balance this digital divide, 
OneWorld TV will be a place for voices from developing countries to articulate 
their own stories, agendas and perspectives to audiences that they would not 
otherwise reach.

Dans ce numéro intitulé "Explorations sonores", nous nous sommes intéressés
au nombre grandissant d'œuvres d'art conçues pour le Web qui sont centrées
sur le son. Cette édition réunit donc des réflexions sur la place du son
dans l'art
Web, particulièrement en ce qui a trait aux rapports variés qu'entretiennent
ces œuvres le son et l'image, le son et le texte, et enfin, le son et
l'espace du Web en tant que tel.

Anne-Marie Boisvert a rédigé un Dossier qui traite de ces questions,
cherchant à repérer dans un premier temps les caractéristiques et les
différents types d'œuvres Web sonores, pour ensuite tenter de mieux situer
celles-ci dans le contexte plus large de l'art contemporain, afin d'en
proposer un mode de réception et d'interprétation qui tiennent
compte de leur grande ouverture.

Nous avons voulu présenter dans la section réservée aux œuvres
électroniques un bon échantillonnage de ce qui se fait actuellement dans le
domaine de l'art sonore sur le Web. C'est ainsi que les œuvres Web sonores
d'artistes aussi variés que Reynald Drouhin,
Nancy Tobin, Glorious Ninth (Kate Southworth, Patrick Simons), LAB(au)
(Manuel Abendroth, Jerome Decock, Alexandre Plennevaux), Jean-Luc Lamarque,
Hidekazu Minami, Yucef Merhi, Émilie Pitoiset, Martin Wattenberg et [the
user] (Thomas McIntosh et Emmanuel Madan) sont commentées dans cette section
par Ned Bouhalassa, Rossitza Daskalova, Patrick Lafond, Valérie
Lamontagne, Sylvie Parent, Cécile Petit, Bernard Schütze et Brad Todd.

De plus, Anne-Marie Boisvert a réalisé une entrevue avec Mark Amerika, l'un
des artistes les plus importants à œuvrer sur le Web depuis 1993. Mark
Amerika est reconnu notamment pour sa trilogie GRAMMATRON / PHON:E:ME /
FILMTEXT, dont il est abondamment question dans la présente entrevue, ainsi
que pour le site Alt-X dédié
à la pratique et à la théorie de l'art Web.

Bernard Schütze quant à lui s'est intéressé dans le cadre de la rubrique
Site à voir à un important projet de collaboration internationale consacré à
l'expérimentation sonore. Ce projet, le site Crossfade, est né des efforts
conjoints du SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art), du
Goethe-Institut, du ZKM (Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) et du Walker
Art Center (Minneapolis).

Finalement, Rossitza Daskalova offre un compte rendu du projet de
"net.ballet" diffusé en direct sur le Web par l'artiste Igor Stromajer,
originaire de l'Europe de l'Est, BALLETTIKKA INTERNETTIKKA.

Bonne lecture !

In this issue of our Magazine entitled "Sound Explorations", we look more
closely at the the growing number of sound-based Web works. This issue
gathers reflections on the place of sound in Web art, especially the
relationships within these works between sound and image, sound and text,
and, finally, sound and cyberspace.

Anne-Marie Boisvert has written a Feature dealing with these questions where
she tries to locate the main characteristics and different types of
sound-based Web works in order to better situate them within the larger
context of contemporary art, and to offer a
mode of reception and interpretation that take into account their great

We wanted to present in our Web Works section a good sampling of the many
kinds of sound-based works currently made for the Web. Thus works by many
different artists such as Reynald Drouhin, Nancy Tobin, Glorious Ninth (Kate
Southworth, Patrick Simons), Lab(au) (Manuel Abendroth, Jerome Decock,
Alexandre Plennevaux),
Jean-Luc Lamarque, Hidekazu Minami, Yucef Merhi, Émilie Pitoiset, Martin
Wattenberg and [the user] (Thomas McIntosh and Emmanuel Madan) are commented
in this section by Ned Bouhalassa, Rossitza Daskalova, Patrick Lafond,
Valérie Lamontagne, Sylvie Parent, Cécile Petit, Bernard Schütze and Brad

Anne-Marie Boisvert also conducts an interview with Mark Amerika, one of the
most important artists working on the Web today, where he has been active
since 1993. Mark Amerika is well known among other projects for his trilogy
GRAMMATRON / PHON:E:ME / FILMTEXT, which is discussed at length in the
present interview, and
also for his Alt-X Web site that deals with both the theory and the practice
of Web art.

In the Spotlight section, Bernard Schütze looks at an important
international collaboration devoted to sound experimentations. This project,
the Crossfade Web site, is a joint venture of the SFMOMA (San Francisco
Museum of Modern Art), the Goethe-Institut, the ZKM (Center for Art and
Media, Karlsruhe) and the Walker Art Center

Finally, Rossitza Daskalova reports on the "net.ballet" project broadcasted
live on the Web by the East-European artist Igor Stromajer, BALLETTIKKA
