What is S c r e e n S a v e r?

ScreenSaver is an easy-to-use 32-bit screen saver for OS/2 2.x and
ScreenSaver is Shareware. The registration fee. Site licences
available.When ScreenSaver is started, it monitors your keyboard and
mouse activity in the background. When a settable timeout expires, it
runs one of the various saver modules until the user uses the keyboard
mouse again. ScreenSaver has the advantage of low memory consumption and

very low CPU usage - this means virtually no performance impact on your
normal work.ScreenSaver has a very modular structure: It searches its
directory for saver modules and selects a module randomly when the saver

becomes active. Therefore it is very easy to extend ScreenSaver by just
copying new saver modules to its directory. It is possible to use
modules with ScreenSaver. Just copy them to the ScreenSaver directory.
Easy network-installation (CID).Sample source code for do-it-yourself
saver modules comes with the distribution. ScreenSaver has been
by IBM in their "Available and Ready for OS/2" (tm) Certification

N e w  i n  v2.6:

NUTEK/APMS monitor support
new and enhanced modules
many minor enhancements and fixes
uses OS/2 Warp 4 notebook style
tested to run on Warp 4

F e a t u r e s  o v e r v i e w:

DPMS monitor support
password protection
OS/2 fullscreen support
Win-OS/2 fullscreen support
DOS fullscreen support
Sound support
Deskpic module support
module building toolkit
more than 50 modules included
English and German version available
ScreenSaver has a nice and intuitive user interface.
ScreenSaver supports DPMS "Green" monitors.
ScreenSaver supports OS/2, DOS and Win-OS/2 fullscreen sessions.

with independent media in FRY

AMARC launches international campaign of solidarity with independent media
in FRY

1 May 1999

International Campaign of Solidarity with independent media in the Federal
Republic of Yugoslavia On 3rd May, World Press Freedom Day, the World
Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) and HelpB92 are
launching an international campaign of solidarity with Radio B92 and fifty
other independent broadcasters from the Association of Independent
Electronic Media (ANEM).

The solidarity action is being launched in protest at the blanket
repression of broadcast and other media in and from  FRY. We call on
supporters of freedom of expression around the globe to join this action to
assure the safety and continuing work of independent media activists during
this time of extreme crisis and war.

Radio B92 and ANEM have won world-wide acclaim for their commitment during
the past ten years to countering nationalist rhetoric, hatred and war in
the Balkans.

The long-term goal of this international solidarity action is to get Radio
B92 and all other ANEM stations back on the air and broadcasting free
information as soon as possible. To enable them to realise this goal, we
aim to twin fellow broadcasters, radio and television stations, freedom of
expression organisations and activists from around the world with
journalists and other staff from these independent media in the region.

The main focus of the launch is the mobilisation of community radio
broadcasters throughout the world, many of whom will undertake solidarity
broadcasts with ANEM and Radio B92 on World Press Freedom Day. AMARC
President, Maria Victoria Polanco, will present the campaign in Bogota
during the UNESCO celebrations of World Press Freedom Day.

8. Internationale Performancekonferenz
13. - 16. Mai 1999
im Kasino des IG - Farbenhauses, Fürstenbergerstr. Frankfurt/Main
Anmeldung: 069/250 328

Netz und Netzwerke sind Metaphern für die Kultur des späten 20.
Jahrhunderts. Dynamische, sich verändernde Metaphern, offene Systeme,
Interaktionsfelder, in denen sich Diskurse und Erfahrungen, Erwartungen
und Ängste aus Wissenschaft, Medientechnologie und -kritik, Kunst,
Politik und Philosophie überlagern, kreuzen und austauschen.

Verbindungslinien, Impulse und Analogien zwischen den Disziplinen und
Sparten hat es schon immer gegeben. Doch jetzt bilden die Eigenschaften
der Netze als Kommunikationstruktur einen Knotenpunkt des Interesses.
Interaktivität, Dezentralisierung, Selbstorganisation, Nichtlinearität,
Heterarchie sind Begriffe mit denen die spezifischen Qualitäten der
Netzwerkkommunikation beschrieben werden.

Die Performancekonferenz „networking!“ ist Knotenpunkt und
Interaktionsfeld durch das und auf dem die Ideen, Implikationen,
Visionen und die Kritik des Netzes als Kommunikationsstruktur fließen
und mit der künstlerischen Haltung und Handlung der Gäste interagiert.

the art of networking: utopie & kritik
Das Netz ist nicht nur Ort, sondern auch Medium der Kunst. Als solches
besitzt es das prinzipielle Potential, das klassische Beziehungsdreieck
zwischen Künstler, Kunstwerk und Betrachter nachhaltig zuerschüttern -
scheint es doch Interaktivität, Partizipation und Kooperation nicht nur
zu fördern, sondern auch zu fordern. Doch wie immer gibt es einen
kleinen Haken an der Sache: Damit sich etwas bewegt, muss man sich

Das Netz als künstlerisches Neuland, in dem andernorts tradierte und
sorgsam konservierte Strukturen und Machtverhältnisse keine Gültigkeit
besitzen, das ist zunächst einmal nicht mehr als eine schöne Utopie. Wie

wir auch aus anderen Bereichen zurGenüge wissen, ist ein Medium immer
nur so neu/offen/fliessend/demokratisch/subversiv, wie der oder
diejenige, der oder die es benutzt.

Insofern gilt es auch, networking! als Strategie zu begreifen und die
alten Seilschaften im neuen Medium zu kapern:hijacking old boys
networks. Damit sich etwas bewegt, muss man sich bewegen. bittet zum Tanz.Donnerstag

ARTLAB-Prospect 3 Exhibition
"Ultima Ratio" - Software and Interactive Installation
 (artist: Daniela Alina Plewe)
May 27 (thu)-June 6 (sun) at Spiral Garden, Tokyo

organized by: Canon ARTLAB
co-operation with: Goethe Institut Tokyo, Spiral/Wacoal Art Center

In "Ultima Ratio," visitors can experience the conflicts of heroes/
heroines in various scenarios in literature, such as Shakespeare's
"Hamlet", movie "Casablanca," "Robocop" and Greek myth "Medea"
etc. remodeled by decision-support-formalism of AI.

The tangled backgrounds and psychological dilemmas in narratives
are visualized and networked in 3-D diagrams, to form visual
databases. Visitors can experience the depths of consciousness
in accordance with changing voices and colors. This work is in the
limelight, not only in the fields of media and information technology,
but also as an original idea to link literatures with multimedia.

The work, first shown at ARS ELECTRONICA 98 in Linz last year, is the
first exhibition of full-fledged installation in the world.

<on Ultima Ratio by Daniela Alina Plewe>

In this Virtual Reality Ambient human paradoxes and dilemmas are
represented as logical strucutres. A decision support system from
AI research reasons then on such issues as: should Hamlet kill
Claudius.., should Ilsa leave Casablanca with Rick..., should one live
for ideals even if risking one's life..., etc.? Thereby exceptions to
rules allow to differentiate the formalization. The system generated
inner monologues of the characters and visualizes them in realtime
as 3-D diagrams. The ambivalence of choices may become captured
as images about mental spaces. The visual language (here of protoype
1) allows also to draw images beyond the logical functionality:
features like 'reasoning running wild' courage "live wrong, but win"
and 'plans of a life' can be expressed within thesemantics of "Ultima
