Subject: Emergent Art

Under the right conditions, complex patterns and sequences emerge 
from the interaction of simple events.

Please see my new work called Emergent Art at

On the left you will see patterns emerge from the interaction of 
cells as they obey the rules of Conway's Game of Life.

On the right you will see a different representation of the same 
emerging patterns. The square cells are replaced by vertical lines 
and the position and colour of the lines are determined according to 
the sequences of coloured cells.

I welcome comments, criticism and also any information about other 
forms of emergent art.

Thank you.

Subject: New Work on Turbulence: David Crawford's "Stop Motion Studies"

November 22, 2002
For Immediate Release
Artist's Studios: David Crawford

At its heart, the Stop Motion Studies (SMS) series celebrates what can be accomplished within the file size constraints presented by current network architectures. Flash MX is used as both sequencer and streaming technology for what might be referred to as "poor man's video." In any case, the experience is rich while being specific to the online environment. 
In terms of conceptual underpinning, the SMS series continues Crawford's investigation into the relationship between technology and our experience of time, space and identity. On top of this is an added interest in exploring public space and in particular, public transportation as a stage on which social dynamics and individual identities are increasingly mediated by technology. 

David Crawford is an artist, designer and teacher. As an artist, he has been internationally recognized and received numerous grants, honors and awards from organizations including the National Endowment for the Arts and the San Francisco Modern Museum of Art. As a designer, Crawford has held posts at some of the most preeminent organizations in the world including WGBH Boston, where he is currently working on projects funded by Annenberg/CPB and the National Science Foundation. As a teacher, he has pioneered programs at both the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Pratt Institute and is currently a faculty member at both schools where he is actively engaged in curricular development. He studied at the Massachusetts College of Art with filmmaker Mark Lapore and video artist Julia Scher.

     TONIGHT 2 - Werkgespräche am Mittwoch

     JAN-HOLGER MAUSS (Hamburg)

     eingeladen von Stefanie Grebe

     Mittwoch, 13.11.2002, 20.00 Uhr

     Jan-Holger Mauss beschäftigt sich mit der Transformation von
     Zeichen in verschiedenen Medien- und Zeichensystemen,
     besonders mit Systemen, deren Referenzprioritäten nicht mehr
     eindeutig sind.
     ÑWie die Erfahrung zeigt, kommen wir alleine nicht weiter. Um
     die 'Anderweite' der Individualität von Persönlichkeiten zu
     erfahren, realisiere ich künstlerische Projekte wie B2B. Dafür
     kopierte ich mir aus Eva Grubingers Internetinstallation
     ( die
     Schnittmusterbogenkombination Top-Small/Bottom-Medium für
     einen Netzbikini. Da jeder, der Eva ein Abbild von sich im
     selbstgeschneiderten Netzbikini zusendet, von ihr ein
     Echtheitslabel zum Einnähen bekommt, stellt sich für mich die
     Frage: Wer macht das Bild? Seitdem lasse ich mich von
     KünstlerInnen in meinem Bikini abbilden. Nach über hundert
     Sitzungen bin ich ein geübtes Model, aber auch Muse, denn die
     Arbeiten entstehen im Dialog. Da die eingeladenen
     KünstlerInnen selbst die Entscheidung über die Art und Weise
     der Ausführung treffen, bleiben die Arbeiten in ihrem Besitz.
     Der Erfahrungsaustausch erlaubt mir aber die entstandenen
     Werke in Absprache auszustellen. Die Zusammenstellungen der
     unterschiedlichen Abbildungen von mir sind mein multiples
     Selbstportrait - mehr noch die Präsentation der Haltungen der
     beteiligten KünstlerInnen.

     Seit 1997 fotografiere ich weltweit Cruising Areas mit
     Schwarz/Weiß Diapositivfilmen. Diese Abbildungen von
     Freizeitlandschaften, die von ihren Benutzern aus
     vorgefundenen räumlichen Gegebenheiten bewusst oder unbewusst
     für ihre kommunikativen Bedürfnisse gestaltet werden,
     präsentiere ich als Projektionen."
     (Jan-Holger Mauss)

     Zur Projektreihe TONIGHT laden wir internationale
     KünstlerInnen ein, die sich im Grenzbereich zwischen Kunst,
     Wissenschaft, Politik, Architektur, Fotografie und Film
     bewegen. Ziel ist es, ein Forum des Austausches zu schaffen,
     bei dem es neben der Auseinandersetzung mit unterschiedlichen
     künstlerischen Positionen vor allem darum geht, etwas über das
     Selbstverständnis der KünstlerInnen zu erfahren. Werkgespräche
     ermöglichen einen intensiven Diskurs, bei dem auch Aspekte wie
     persönliche Motivation, politische und soziale Hintergründe
     sowie unterschiedliche Arbeitsweisen und -bedingungen ins
     Blickfeld geraten.

Doors of Perception 7 (14-15-16 november)
=46low: the design challenge of pervasive computing
P r e s e n t e e r t

De Open Doors Design Grand Prix
15 November 2002, RAI, Amsterdam
15:00 deuren open. 19:30 Einde van de Open Doors presentaties. 20:00 
De winnaar wordt bekendgemaakt!
Entree: 10 euro, aan de kassa. Geen reserveringen!

Spannend nieuw onderdeel van de 7e Doors of Perception conferentie is 
de Open Doors Design Grand Prix. Er worden 22, wereldwijd 
geselecteerde, designprojecten gepresenteerd door hun makers. Wat is 
het beste scenario voor pervasive computing?
Welk project is het meest opwindend, vernieuwend en zinvol?

We staan aan de vooravond van een wereld waarin de computer is 
verdwenen. Kunnen we ons de ultieme connectiviteit van de dingen 
voorstellen? Dingen die praten, dingen die discussi=EBren, dingen die 
denken? Als de computer verdwijnt, wordt de omgeving de interface. 
Waar gaan we ons dan op richten, op zoek naar een knop, een toets, 
een button? Waar is je vertrouwde dashboard als je achter het stuur 
zit? Voor deze wereld waarin digitale connectiveit alomaanwezig  is, 
zijn andere dashboards nodig, andere manieren van visualiseren en 
nieuwe vaardigheden, die gebruikmaken van al onze zintuigen.
Dat is de ontwerpuitdaging waar Flow over gaat. En waarvoor we deze 
designprijs in het leven hebben geroepen.

Een selectie uit de deelnemers:
Jussi =C4ngeslev=E4 van Media Lab Europe presenteert Body Mnemonics: 
meta-gereedschap voor draagbare apparaten. Josephine Pletts &  Usman 
Haque van ontwerpbureau Pletts Haque laten in Hardspace and Softspace 
zien hoe 'architectuur' een werkwoord is geworden. Rein Jansma, van 
Zwarts & Jansma, combineert in Interactive Carparks, ori=EBntatie, 
identiteit en veiligheidsthema's. Lavrans Lovlie & Chris Downs van 
Livework versmelten service-ontwerp en duurzaamheidsprincipes in hun 
project loome - your personal information broker. Esther Polak & 
Jeroen Kee & the Waag Society presenteren in Amsterdam REALTIME een 
dagboek in sporen van dagelijkse persoonlijke routes. Welke data 
worden informatie? Analia Cervini & Juan Kayser van het Interaction 
Design Institute Ivrea stellen in Mobile Embodiments  vragen naar de 
aard van de mobiele apparaten van de toekomst in een slimme omgeving. 
Gary McDarby & John Sharry van Media Lab Europe nemen Mental Leaps  
en presenteren brein-computer-interfaces; vergeet de joystick, speel 
met je gedachten! Lizbeth Goodman & Jo Gell van SMARTlab, Central 
Saint Martins, dansen in Flutterfly waar flow relevant wordt in 
bewegingstudies. Liselott Brunnberg van Mobility Studio, Interactive 
Institute Zweden, onderzoekt in Backseat Gaming  snelle 
scenarioveranderingen en het gevoel van beweging; alsof je achterin 
een auto meerijdt... Marcus Gosling & Alexander Gr=FCnsteidl van IDEO 
vragen zich in cameras wide shut af wat de sociale implicaties zijn 
als optische technologie=EBn zo wijdverspreid zijn als onze 
lichtknopjes en lampen.

Ole Bouman (Archis), Sascha Kosch (de:Bug), Chee Pearlman 
(correspondent van Wired en de New York Times, Petra Schmidt (Form)

Media in Karlsruhe for the exhibition FUTURE CINEMA. The Cinematic
Imaginary after Film (November 16, 2002 - March 30, 2003).

Sutton, Rachel Stevens, Francesca Ferguson, Rachel Beth Egenhoefer, Ted

Soft Cinema (installation version) will be shown at ZKM as a part of Future
Cinema exhibition. Soft Cinema (screen version) will be shown in other
venues along with the earlier projects Little Movies (1994-1997) and Anna
and Andy (2000). Conceived for the Web in 1994, Little Movies is a eulogy to
the earliest form of digital cinema ‹ QuickTime. Anna and Andy is a
³streaming novel² which uses Tolstoy's Anna Karenina as a script that drives
a computer-generated re-creation of Warhol's Screen Tests.

How to represent the subjective experience of living in a global information
society? If daily interaction with volumes of data and numerous messages is
part of our new ³data-subjectivity,² how can we visualize this subjectivity
in new ways using new media?

Soft(ware) Cinema investigates a few approaches toward answering these
questions. Fictional stories excerpted from a collection entitled GUI
(Global User Interface) are presented as a series of short movies. While the
voice over which narrates the stories was edited before hand, everything
else is constructed by the software in real time, including what appears on
the screen, where, and in which sequence. The decisions are based partly on
a system of rules, and are partly random. In other words, Soft Cinema can be
thought of as a semi-automatic VJ (Video Jockey) ‹or more precisely, a FJ
(Film Jockey). 

Using Graphical User Interface, financial TV programs and Piet Mondrian as
templates, Soft Cinema breaks the screen into several frames. The videos
that appear within these frames are derived from a large database. Each
video clip in the database follows Dogma 95 rules: it was shot in continuous
takes without edits using a hand-held camera. Most of the clips have been
recorded by the author while in Berlin, Tokyo, Riga, and other locations
between 1999 and 2002; a few clips are simulated (i.e. a still image was
animated to look like a video shot on location).

Subject: -empyre- : constructing the virtual

- -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
