Subject: November on -empyre- 

- -empyre- takes pleasure in introducing our next guests and theme--

November 2002 - Virtual Construction

Please join us for a wide ranging discussion on the possibilities of virtual
construction as viral and pandemic with Joseph Nechvatal, electronic media
animator/painter/philosopher; and, later in the month, as identity and
network with Gregory Little, an electronic media artist whose art engages
issues of  avatar and immersion.

Transmedia artist and philospher Joseph Nechvatal engages "viractuality"
(occasions where the virtual and the actual merge), and tests the grounds
for a technological and erotic aesthetic of virtuality.  Electronic media
artist, writer and editor Gregory Little  explores constructions of identity
in networked virtual environments as an artistic medium, while focusing on
issues related to consensual identity, avatars (avatara), being inside-out,
abjection, hierarchies and the "Body w/o Organs", and the post-human.

Viractualism with Joseph Nechvatal November 1-15 & Avatar Manifesos with
Gregory Little November 15 -30

join us at --empyre forum--  <>

From: "Marieke Istha" <>

The Netherlands Media Art Institute, Montevideo/Time Based Arts has set the
goal for itself of promoting the wide development, application and
distribution of, and reflection on new technologies in the visual arts.

Starting in 2002, the Netherlands Media Art Institute, Montevideo/Time Based
Arts is inviting artists from The Netherlands and other countries to apply
for a three till six months research period to carrying out investigations
in three areas:
·	Streaming media
·	Wireless applications
·	3D applications
In 2002 and 2003 we are focussing on streaming media. One of the current
disadvantages of live and on-demand streaming media on the Internet (video /
audio) is the confined space in which streaming media applications run.
Often this is not more than a linear interpolation of current video and
television formats in existence. This is emphasised by the media player,
which often is no more than a representation of a television only with low
quality imagery and sound. This confinement is a restriction for creating
and investigating new formats for streaming media.

Artistic concept, innovation and cooperation are to be central in the
research projects. Preference will be given to research which makes use of
"open source" and that develops "tools" which will be available for further
use. Investigations that have an interdisciplinary character will also
receive preference. The artists will be working together with Dutch
universities and academies in the research.

An Artist in Residence will have at his/her disposal
·	Technical facilities, including assistance
·	Working budget
·	Housing
Technical specialists advise the participating artists during  research,
experiments and production.
The outcome of the research will be presented in an appropriate manner,
through exhibitions, discussions, seminars, publications and workshops.

Subject: f*ck the Republicans: VOte on Nov 5th and 6th...

Just a reminder... f!ck artworld "new agey" bullsh*t and actually do 

the elections are just around the corner.

Do you really want a war?

Do you really like Bush Jr.?

Do you really want a f*cked up world indebted to oil?

yes, the voiting system is f*cked up, but the basic thing is to at 
least try - it's not alot of time, and it does have an impact.... in 
one way or another...

ps, below is one reminder why you should vote....
Jeb Crow?

There they go again.
Today's exclusive by investigative reporter Greg Palast:

Florida moves to bar 91,000 legal voters -  mostly Democrats - from
Tuesday poll

  From the article:

In December 2000, we reported that Florida's use of a faulty and
politically questionable list of felons and dead people "scrubbed"
from voter rolls -- half of them African-Americans -- may have cost
Al Gore the 537-vote margin of victory claimed by George W. Bush in

Fast-forward two years. There's another close race in Florida. This
time, younger brother Jeb is fighting to fend off a challenge from
Bill McBride for the governor's race. The Nov. 5 face-off could again
come down to thousands, if not hundreds, of votes.

And even though the list has been widely condemned -- the company
that created it admits probable errors -- the same voter scrub list,
with more than 94,000 names on it, is still in operation in Florida.
Moreover, DBT Online, which generated the disastrously flawed list,
reports that if it followed strict criteria to eliminate those
errors, roughly 3,000 names would remain -- and a whopping 91,000
people would have their voting rights restored.

Eventually the list will be fixed, state officials have promised, in
accordance with a settlement with the NAACP in its civil rights suit
against Florida following the 2000 election. But not until the
beginning of next year -- and after Jeb Bush's reelection bid is long

This month, PBS stations nationwide will broadcast "Counting on

the vote in Florida during the 2000 presidential election.  Local

Schechter, can be found at  at (Events) -
