                   M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture

                          Call for Contributors

The University of Queensland's award-winning journal of media and culture,
M/C, is looking for new contributors. M/C is a crossover journal between
the popular and the academic, and a blind- and peer-reviewed journal.

To see what M/C is all about, check out our Website, which contains all the
issues released so far, at <>. To find out
how and in what format to contribute your work, visit

We are now accepting submissions for the following issue:

                  'chat' - article deadline: 24 July 2000
               issue editors: Felicity Meakins & Sean Rintel

The M/C 'chat' issue is intended to be as broad a survey of the mechanics,
media, contexts and analysis of chat as possible.

Robert Hopper once described argued chat as technology -- "humanmade
instrumentality that partially restructures the world". Hopper's notion is
an excellent starting point for the 'chat' issue of M/C, devoted to the
exploration of this most pervasive of discursive modes, and, indeed, to the
reflexive exploration of how researchers analyse chat.

How does the technology of talk work, and what happens when talk is itself
mediated by other technologies? In what sense is chat "humanmade"? What
parts of the world can be restructured by chat, and how is this
accomplished? In M/C 'chat', any chat artefacts -- semantic, syntactic,
phatic, contextual -- may be put under the microscope.

The artefacts and underpinnings of the analysis of chat, as themselves
partially restructuring of the world, may also be highlighted in this
issue. Methodology and ideology of analysis certainly shape the
understandings of chat, particularly if those understandings are argued to
be of practical significance. What results might inductive, deductive or
adductive approaches to chat analysis provide, and how might they be
compared and contrasted? Similar questions could be asked of qualitative
and quantitative analysis. Are combinatory approaches viable?

Of course the next question becomes, not how chat restructures the world,
but what world it restructures. The world exists as a fractured entity,
both in the way we understand it, and in the way it breaks down along
cultural, social and relational lines. How do two people chat when their
perceptions of the world are inherently different? How much of this
represented information is mutual? In what ways does chat create ethnic
groups, perpetuate racism, sexism and ageism or generally signify the
other? How is it that we can swear at close friends and not at our
superiors? Chat, in these situations becomes a point of mediation between
the world and self -- a highly constructed moment. But what happens when
chat itself is mediated? What happens to the world as we know it?

And to turn Hopper's statement on its head, we can ask how does the world
structure our chat? Why does a person who has been living in a foreign
country for 40 years still have an accent? When does "You saw that gas can
explode" become a declaration about gas exploding or a can exploding? Who
does "you" refer to? It seems obvious, but "you" in isolation is
meaningless. It seems that meaning sought from the world also enriches our

Articles are due by the 24th of July 2000. M/C 'chat' will be released on
the 23rd of August 2000. Contributors are directed to previous issues of

Summer seminar
Playstation meets Organism: Emulation in a Cultural Context
1-3 September 2000, Amsterdam
The Amsterdam-Maastricht Summer University
in association with Mediamatic Foundation (Amsterdam)

	The notion of emulation has recently gained new actuality, for
example in game design, artificial life, sociology, biology and culture. In
this seminar the meaning of emulation in these different discourses will be
discussed, while exploring emulators and practical uses of emulation.

	The first day will focus
on popular discourses in biology and artificial life, the second on
emulation in the context of art, specifically new media art, and for the
third day computer games and game design will be the central issue. Among
the lecturers are biologists, art critics and theorists of new media such as
George Dyson, Lev Manovich, Hiroshi Masuyama, Tom McCarthy, Trevor Pinch and
Tom Ray. Apart from the intellectual debate, participants will be able to
revitalize themselves in real floating tanks and to experiment with computer
games. Furthermore, the participants will have free access to the cultural
and social evening programme in the building of Felix Meritis and in Club
BABY. This seminar is intended for free-floating academics and joy-stick

Subject: Oreste at the Venice Biennale (book)

(edizioni Charta, Milan, 2000)
mainly bi-lingual (English and Italian); ISBN 88-8158-279-1
256 pages, 287 b/w illustrations
size: 12x20 cm
edition: 3500

price: $15

Edited by Giancarlo Norese
with the assistance of Emilio Fantin and Cesare Pietroiusti

Oreste is not a group that produces collective artworks, nor a
not-for-profit organization. It is a variable set of persons, mostly
Italian artists, who have been working together with the aim of creating
spaces of freedom for ideas, inventions, and projects.
Oreste was founded in 1997 as a residency program for artists in Paliano
near Rome, and then moved to Montescaglioso in the province of Matera.

During the 48th Venice Biennale, from June 10th through November 7th 1999,
on the occasion of an invitation to the exhibition dAPERTutto, Oreste set
up an ongoing program of meetings, interactive performances, round table
discussions, lectures, lunches and informal encounters. Almost one hundred
events were organized, and more than five hundred people from the whole
world took an active role in the project.
The book contains a documentation of the organized events, together with a
series of theoretical contributions by professionals in diverse fields
(Carlos Basualdo, Andreas Broeckmann, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Riccardo
Held, Agnes Kohlmeyer, Geert Lovink, Elisa Ottaviani, Pier Luigi Sacco, and
Harald Szeemann).

Rem Koolhaas
Start Again

Rem Koolhaas attended the AA between 1968 and 1973, and in 1975 founded
the Office for Metropolitan Architecture with Elia and Zoë Zenghelis and
Madelon Vriesendorp, with whom he had previously collaborated at the AA.

Recent projects undertaken by OMA include masterplans for Universal
Studios in Los Angeles, the port at Genoa, Hanoi New Town in Vietnam and
Song Do New Town for Inchon, Korea. They are currently engaged in a
study of the planned relocation of the Netherland's main airport to an
island in the North Sea, and a masterplan for the centre of Almere, a
former satellite of Amsterdam and the newest city in the Netherlands. As
there was no original town centre, and therefore no historical context
to build on, one of the objectives of the masterplan was to create an
entirely synthetic cultural identity for the city. In his lecture
Koolhaas will discuss new work by OMA.

Dear friends, OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and
Development ( is going to organise a international meeting
on the topics Enhancing the competitiveness of Small Medium Enterprise
in the global economy.

The Conference will take place in Bologna on june 14th, 15th.

During the last three months, a large movement has begun to meet in Bologna.
Workers, unemployed, researchers, social workers, militants have discussed
the topics of the conference, and created a network NOOCSEContropiani

NOOCSEContropiani calls to action all the persons who feel outraged by the
arrogance of antidemocratic organizations (like WTO, FMI, OECD).
We do not dislike globalization. We dislike very much the fact that the
potency of global technologies is subdued to narrow ecoomic interests, and
is used as a mean of exploitation.

The NOOCSEContropiani will demonstrate in the streets of Bologna during the
OCSE meeting, and will work on a Bologna Counter Chart whose guidelines
will be the following:

Minimum worldwide wages
Free circulation of men and women in the planet
Free access of the people to the results of knowledge and research
Abolition of all the patents on bioknowledge.

Subject: NEEN

ARTIST: Miltos Manetas
PRODUCER: Art Production Fund (APF)
CREATOR: Lexicon Branding

"Neen stands for Neensters: a still undefined generation of visual artists.
Some of them may belong to Contemporary Art, while others are software
creators, web designers or videogame animators.  A  neenster's identity is
their state of mindS"  - Miltos Manetas

"Neen" is a new word for the arts given the framework of technology and is a
nonprofit, public service project.  "Neen" entered the public domain via a
demonstration at Gagosian Gallery Chelsea on May 31, 2000 in New York City.

Miltos Manetas approached Art Production Fund over a year ago and said, " I
need a new word and the world needs this word as much as I do".  He
continued by saying that he couldn't wait for a critic, curator or an artist
to make this word- indeed over the years he had asked many of them. This was
an urgent matter that required the collaboration with a different type of
professional- the same people that created the names PowerBook and Pentium.
A California based company named Lexicon Branding.

Sixty-seven words were finally presented to the artist Miltos Manetas and
APF's producer Yvonne Force.  From this list Manetas immediately chose
"neen".  He said, "it is the only word I can use to describe myself, and the
only one I can imagine my mother saying".  This word was uniquely created by
a computer program that was fed the words of the binary code- zero and one.
It means "now" in Old Greek and "no" in Flemish.  The word was introduced
and first spoken by a laptop computer at the demonstration.  Numerous
examples of "neen" were also presented by Manetas that evening.

The process of creating "neen" and the demonstration employed the same
formula used in popular culture to introduce consumer products. Commentary
was offered by experts in their field including: JC Herz, Joseph Kosuth,
Peter Lunenfeld, David Placek, and Steven Pinker.  Attendees included: John
Armleder, Vanessa Beecroft, Sylvie Fleury, Barbara London, Paul Miller
a.k.a. DJ Spooky, Amy Mullen, Larry Rinder, Julia Scher and Heim Steinbach.

"(Das) Jenseits des  Konstruktivismus"

Radikaler Konstruktivismus (,
Systemtheorie und Kybernetik zweiter Ordnung haben uns die enorme
Kontingenz und Redundanz sowohl von wissenschaftlichen Beschreibungen als
auch von wissenschaftlichen  Problemloesungs-Strategien vor Augen gefuehrt.
Nachdem nun durch Ian Hacking und Josef Mitterer auch noch
konstruktivistische Ansaetze de-konstruiert wurden, stellt sich die Frage:
Was bleibt eigentlich noch uebrig außer den Ruinen unserer Denktradition?
Sind non-dualistische oder triadisch Weltbilder der naechste  Schritt?  
     (english: (The) Beyond (of) Constructivism:  Radical constructivism
(, systems theory and second order
cybernetics leave us with an enormous contingency and redundancy of
scientific  descriptions as well as of finding the best path in solving
problems. After Ian Hacking, Josef Mitterer and others also deconstructed
the constructivists, what is left except the ruins of western thought? Is a
non-dualistic or triadic world-view the next logical step?)

Dr. Stefan  Weber ( is a  media
epistemologist from Salzburg, he wrote "Die Dualisierung des Erkennens"
("The Dualisation of Cognition") and edited "Was konstruiert Kunst?"
("What Constructs Art?"; both Vienna, Passagen Verlag) amongst others. His
current project is called "CyberPoiesis" (University of Applied Arts
Vienna, Prof. Manfred Faßler).


Thomas Feuerstein (Webcast 110: FRI/9.6.00 CET)
"SAMPLEMINDS - Instant-Zeit und Instant-Raum als Status quo des Steady
State. Über attraktive Attraktoren und atavistische Avatare"

Die sogenannte "Steady State Theory" von Fred Hoyle stellte ein
astrophysikalisches Modell dar, das eine zeitlose Neubildung von Materie
annahm, welche die Leere zwischen den auseinanderdriftenden Galaxien stetig
ausfuellt. Auch wenn dieses Modell fuer die Beschreibung des realen Kosmos
seine Gueltigkeit verloren hat, hat es eine neue Relevanz in Bezug auf den
Cyberkosmos bzw. das Netz erlangt. Seit Entstehung des ARPANET (=Cyber Big
Bang) fuellt sich die interstellare/interhostale Leere des digitalen Raumes
mit astronomischen Datenmengen und generiert neue Dimensionen. Was bedeuten
"Life After History", "Digital Cocooning", "Gunafa", "R.O.S.E.=Realtime
Operating System Environment" im Kontext vernetzter Welten, wie sampeln
sich in ihnen Identitaeten und welche Parameter veraendern unser
Verhaeltnis zu Raum, Zeit und letztendlich zu uns selbst, unserem Koerper
und anderen Menschen und Umweltsystemen?
      (english: "SAMPLEMINDS - Instant-Time & Instant-Space as status quo
of Steady State. About attractive attractors & atavistic Avatars."The so
called "Steady State Theory" by Fred Hoyle is an astrophysic model, which
believed in a timeless renewal of matter, where the void in between
drifting galaxies gets filled steadily. Even if this model did lose its
validity for the description of the real cosmos, it gained new relevance
concerning the cybercosmos, the net. Since the origin of the ARPANET
(=Cyber Big Bang) the interstellar/interhostal void of the digital space
gets filled with astronomic amounts of data & generates new dimensions.
What means "Life After History", "Digital Cocooning", "Gunafa",
"R.O.S.E.=Realtime Operating System Environment" in the context of
networked worlds, how sample identities themselves in there & what
parameters change our relationship to space, time und finally to ourselves,
our bodies, other people & ecosystems ?

he co-organizes the artspace <> in innsbruck/austria. His

Station Rose Info:
 STReaming a la Station Rose, started in January 1999, blends performance,
lecture (STR in conversation with guests in the studio) and multimedia jam
sessions into a unique form of Net Art. 108 webcasts have taken place so
far. Main topics in the program of Station Rose webcasts are live-sessions
in realtime, where sounds&visuals are streamed from the studio into the
net. Acoustic highlights during this session are published on vinyl:
"live@home3", incl. remix by Move D to be released 22.6/00. label: gunafa,
distribution: neuton. Cooperations with Crippled Dick Hot Wax, berlin &
