(fast translation) The Hungarian World Organization ( http://www.mvsz.hu
) has a new chair. His name is Miklós Patrubány from Transilvania.  The
leaving chair Sándor Csoóri who was earlier attacking the internet
community, saying: " they are greedy, they don't have a caracter and
they are unethical.", said he did not want to hurt the internet
community, "I was only hinting at Patrubány who has a computer
technology enterprise", said Csoóri.

Patrubány is considered as a left-wing politician.

(original)
.....(cut)....
'Kongresszusi nyitóbeszédében is Patrubányra utalt mikor megszólta a
menedzser típusú vezetőket és a számítógépes világ képviselőit stílustalan,
másolt embereknek nevezte. Csoóri kijelentette: nem az internetes közösséget
akarta megsérteni, hanem a számítástechnikus vállalkozó Patrubányra utalt.'

VOYEUR: The Fall 2000 SPE Western Regional Conference

"There are circumstances in which looking itself is a source of
pleasure, just as, in the reverse formation, there is pleasure in being
looked at."

-Laura Mulvey

        Looking, watching, observing.
            Shy, nervous, aware.
                Caught, exposed, recorded.

are interested in addressing the voyeuristic aspects of photography,
film, television and the web. Imagemakers, critics, students and
professors, collectors and dealers, curators and creators, we are
talking, arguing, discussing and debating the best and worst, the
beautiful and the banal: scopophilia here we come!

We are also seeking proposals that address: writing grants, approaching
galleries. commercial portfolio development. etc. We will also accept
for revue proposals by image-makers whose work does not perfectly match
this year's theme.


(soft) DEADLINE: June 30, 2000 Please include in your proposal a one
page description of your presentation or panel and a short bio on the
participant(s), as well as visual and other support materials and a
SASE.

PRESS RELEASE

The first interplanetarian exhibition space on Mars THE MARS PATENT
announces the next teleportation to the Mars Exhibition Site for
Thursday, June, 1, 2000 (known as Ascension Day)  20:33  (german time) 
with Marina Grzinic "SPECTRALIZATION SPACE. THE VIRTUAL-IMAGE AND THE
REAL-TIME INTERVAL"

the event broadcasted from Mars. Without any unforseen technical and
metereological disturbances, the installation of Marina Grzinic's work
"Spectralization of Space" will be completed approximately 23.43, June, 1 ,
2000. (german time)

"I would like going to live on Mars, my whole mental structure is pasted
to go somewhere else, and this is the best solution." Marina Grzinic  

Don't miss it and go: www.mars-patent.org


THE MARS PATENT is an interplanetarian project founded by Helene von
Oldenburg and Claudia Reiche. Have you ever dreamed of seeing works of art
and theory on Mars? Now you can! THE MARS PATENT invites you to experience
culture on a fascinating and promising site. Millions of miles away the red
planet, Mars, now lies within your reach. Since the early days THE MARS
PATENT committee has been working hard to find a discriminating place for
your desires which allows a new sight on earth. But such a place could only
be realized by means of a recently developed device, the HRM_1.0n, the
"High Reality Machine". The HRM_1.0n transforms the vision of a viable
martian place for your objects into reality and into the mode of global
sharing. 
The HRM_1.0n becomes a potent device in your hands to place your things on
THE MARS PATENT's Mars Exhibition Site (MES):
THE MARS PATENT offers the MES to you as a free experimental area and
invites every thing which does not fit on earth but tends towards the MES.
(A thing? A real thing that could be your idea, your object, your work,
your project, your desire...) 
THE MARS PATENT takes the full risk of handling, transporting and
sustaining the concepts and objects up to MES, but can't take any
guaranties for the condition on earth. 

So: Send your projects to THE MARS PATENT!

Marina Grzinic "SPECTRALIZATION OF SPACE. THE VIRTUAL-IMAGE AND THE
REAL-TIME INTERVAL"

Dear Leonardo colleagues and friends,

Sincere apologies for cross posting.

On May 13th, 2000 conceptualart.org presented their first real world
installation. Utilizing space in a group show originally reserved for and
subsequently donated by LeE Montgomery of www.norwoodfunk.com,
conceptualart.org constructed a wall inside of the space of Nika Gallery
(1243 Appleton Street in SanFrancisco's Presidio).  Text on the wall
announces the formation of the "versus" mailing list. Shortly after May
13th, a digital image of that wall was placed on the conceptualart.org web
site as a touchstone for the internet announcement of the list's
formation. 

That page can be accessed at:

Drawing upon six years' of experience, the College of Arts and Sciences
at Virginia Tech will continue the serious, sustained, and on-going
debate about the merits of online teaching and distance education
launched at "Learning Online '98" in June 1998 with "Learning 2000:
Reassessing the Virtual University."

The purpose of this conference is to gather colleagues from around the
world who are interested in the shape and substance that the virtual
university is acquiring in practice. In addition we hope to debate the
advantages or disadvantages of digital discourse, learning online, and
virtual university life. By reviewing the quality of faculty life, the
pressures on support staff, the impact on student learning, the demands
on university administrators, and the potentials for reaching new types
of learners, a series of paper sessions, round-table discussions,
panels, and keynote speakers will address the wide range of issues that
emerge in this domain.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:


      Carole Barone, Educause
      Keith Fulton, Urban League
      Katherine Hayles, Professor of English at University of California 
Los Angeles
      Michael Joyce, Professor of English at Vassar College
      Stuart Moulthrop, Associate Professor of Communications at the 
University of
      Baltimore
      Mark Poster, Professor of History at University of California Irvine

Donald Rodney AUTOICON

www.iniva.org/autoicon

preview and online discussion 10 June 2000, 5 - 7pm at inIVA

AUTOICON is a dynamic internet work that simulates both the physical
presence and elements of the creative personality of the artist Donald
Rodney who - after initiating the project - died from sickle-cell anaemia in
March 1998. The project builds on Donald Rodney's artistic practice in his
later years, when he increasingly began to delegate key roles in the
organisation and production of his artwork. Making reference to this working
process, AUTOICON is developed by a close group of friends and artists
(ironically described as 'Donald Rodney plc') who have acted as an advisory
and editorial board in the artist's absence, and who specified the rules by
which the 'automated' aspects of the project operate.

AUTOICON is automated by programmed rule-sets and works to maintain creative
output continually. Visitors to the site will encounter a 'live' presence
through a 'body' of data (which refers to the mass of medical data produced
on the human body), be able to engage in simulated dialogue (derived from
interviews and memories), and in turn affect an 'auto-generative'
montage-machine that assembles images collected from the web (rather like a
sketchbook of ideas in flux). Through AUTOICON, participants can generate
new work in the spirit of Donald's art practice as well as offer a challenge
to and critique the idea of monolithic creativity. In this way, the project
draws attention to current ideas around human-machine assemblages,
dis-embodied exchange and deferred authorship - and raises timely questions
over digital creativity, ethics and memorial.

Donald Rodney made considerable use of imagery such as x-ray photography,
blood samples and cellculture to draw attention not only to the medical
condition that was slowly corroding his body, but more importantly as a
metaphor to represent the 'disease' of racism that lay at the core of
society. Please see  www.iniva.org/autoicon/dr for further information on
the artist and his work.

AUTOICON has been produced by STAR, Science Technology Arts Research,
University of Plymouth (Geoff Cox, Angelika Koechert, Mike Phillips); inIVA,
Institute of International Visual Arts (Gary Stewart); and Sidestream
