Subject: Internet Moving Images Archive

The Internet Moving Images Archive site is up and running (though, I hasten
to say, still under construction).

This resource contains high-quality digital video files representing
ephemeral (advertising, educational, industrial, documentary, amateur and
government) films relevant to the study of 20th-century American culture
and society, media and media production, communication, technology,
landscape, urban history, economics, political science, warfare, the New
Deal, and many other subject areas.

At present it contains approximately 360 out of a planned total of 1001
titles, all from Prelinger Archives.  All are available for free
downloading and reuse, with no restrictions other than that the films
cannot be resold or licensed by anyone in their entirety or as stock
footage.  Our intention is that these titles should circulate freely as
"open-source" content.

I encourage you to download this material for your own use and for the use
of your patrons.  I hope that easy access to these films will assist
scholars, mediamakers, teachers, students, exhibitors and members of the
general public in coming to terms with the complex and diverse audiovisual
history of the 20th century.

The digitized video files are in MPEG-2 format; see the site for
information on playback.  In the next few months they will also be
available in MPEG-4 for lower-bandwidth users.

Please visit the site at
Shortly, the simplified URL will be

At the moment, the site does not work with Netscape, but we are working on
fixing this shortly.  It works fine with Opera and IE.

Within the framework of the "LMX" exhibition organized by Laurent Malone
and Claire Dehove with the FRAC PACA in Marseille, Collective JukeBox
continues its hectic evolution with this new version 3.0. In Marseille,
Collective JukeBox 3.0 will be presented on a "real" jukebox machine and
into a user-friendly room jointly with other rooms where other artists will
present their works . During three months a lot of interventions by artists
and critics from different artistic domains will be presented as lectures,
debates, videos, and so on. LMX will be a place of discussion, of
consultation and of debates. The general context will offer a place and a
moment of conviviality.

 2001: presentations of the Collective JukeBox in Tours (France) in april,
in Nantes (France) in may (not confirmed), in Paris (France) in may and
june (not confirmed), and after in Porto (Portugal) and in Genoa (Italy)
(not confirmed) and other propositions in progress.

2001: opening of the new space . A new project
with a new jukebox on-line with new works specially for the internet
interface. News soon ! This electronic place will certainly function with
the new free open sound standard .ogg which seems to be better than the mp3
standard. We will appeal to all the artists of the project for new
contributions and new works specially for the internet media.

2001: the Collective JukeBox project will open a Cooperation General
Charter or a Cooperation General License for encouraging and helping the
development of the whole project. This will appear in February. This
Charter or License will describe the different aspects of participation,
presentation, and distribution induced by the project.

2001: we're preparing some different propositions of editions: different
series of Collective JukeBox T-shirts, a printed book with the
participation of all artists of the project about the engagement of such a
cooperative project, a series of printed posters, and so on. We're thinking
too about a foolish but great idea: to organize a meeting with all the
artists who take part in the Collective JukeBox. This meeting could a kind
of one-week event with live events, lectures, debates, communications and
so on...

2001: in parallel of the version on the Cd-player jukebox machine, we'll
develop new presentations of the project with new audio player systems. Our
perspective today is to use jukebox player with hard-disks and computer
controlled, with tactile screen interface, and with network accesses for
the artists. This will permit to resolve the increasing needs of digital
memory (actually more than 60 CDs are included into the jukebox machine and
the capacity is about 100 audio Cds max.), and the hard work to digitilize
all the works in the same standard. This will permit too to encourage the
presentation of the project because we see today a lot of propositions for
presenting the Collective JukeBox and we think that this will increase next
months. We're preparing an industrial partner for using freely an existing
device or for developing a kind of prototype specially for the project.

(1) Tokyo, 4 Weeks
Cutting Edge Theatrical Play Experience Tour by Unita Momiichi
A play by Gokiburi Combinat is dirty, dangerous and mad. The
characters in their plays are all living at the bottom of society; a
useless and angry bunch.  The black drama of sticky chaotic flesh-
ly desire and mucous woven by this dirty bunch is carried out in a
cheap musical presentation....

(2) Must-see Events Around the World
Hong Kong, Rotterdam, Zagreb, New York, and so on! by Fukuda Miki
Where did you spend your first day of the 21st century?  Since we
are here in timeless Asia, we can laugh at a mere 100- or 1,000-
year unit of time...Among video artists dealing with the subject
of time, Gary Hill's work shines with a piercing intelligence and
sense of beauty....

(3) Out of Tokyo 006
Kisaragi Koharu and 00s by Ozaki Tetsuya
Playwright Kisaragi Koharu died unexpectedly at the end of last
year at the age of forty-four.  Mourning this untimely death, mu-
sician Takahashi Yuji gave a heartbreaking farewell speech and
sang in trembling voice at her funeral.  At the end of the funeral,
Kisaragi's husband, Kajiya Kazuyuki, a theatre producer, wailing
in pain declared that he would seek a new theatre, promising his
lost wife that he would continue to carry on with her last wish.
These two eulogies moved all in attendance to tears....

Whose Revolution?
With the advent of the digital age and convergence of communications
technologies the government plans a massive shake-up in how electronic and
print media are to be regulated in the 21st century.
If proposals contained in the government's communications white paper reach
the statute books as they stand they could clear the field for a take-over
frenzy by the media superpowers. Strategies must be hammered out to
safeguard diversity, accountability and the public service ethos, stop the
fall in quality programmes and defend the space for local news and minority
At this major conference called by the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting
Freedom, Culture Minister Chris Smith has been invited present and debate
the white paper with representatives from broadcasting, press, new media,
media education, trade unions, the arts and community campaigns.

Subject: between image and sound - call for entries

german version below. sorry for any cross-postings.

Call for Entries -------------------------- 5th Festival "garage" 2001
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
- ------------ from 27th July till 26th August 2001 in Stralsund/Germany
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
- ---------------------------------------------- between image and sound

What happens between sound and image?

"The eye is the master, the ear a slave" (Jakob Grimm) - the 
dominance of the visual over the acoustic perception is omnipresent 
in cultural history. Naturally, they also condition and influence 
each another. The function of the whole perceptional instrument is 
sensually and physically only possible when both interact. What 
happens for instance, if one withdraws the acoustic or visual 
component from a  spacial perception. How does the space change? Or 
what happens, if both traces of perception are desynchronized?

The relation between sound and image is transient; sight and hearing 
are part of associated joints which can take on new forms again and 
again - in respect of space, time and content.

garage 01 wants to approach this relation from different angles. The 
attempt is to present and percieve the (mono)media individually, as 
far as possible and useful. The discussion can be held on a formal or 
theoretical basis, in substance or within exhibition and performance.
Additionally, the discussion will search for new possibilities of the 
sythesis resp. the juxtaposition of sound and image.
The medium as an instrument - the space as a realm for experiments.

To try the relevance and efficiency of art beyond its aesthetical 
self-sake, the question of the role of the transmitter and receiver 
of the "data work" is an essential part of the programme.

The fesitval will present 4 weeks of exhibitions, concerts, 
discussions, film screenings, workshops, which can be summarized 
under three main topics.

Wanted are works or proposals for projects:

[1] image with sound - or the picture on the wall
3rd international shortfilm festival "g-niale" from 2nd to 5th August 
2001. The topic of the "g-niale" is related to the main festival as a 
conscious discussion of perception of individual media and its 
interaction with film and beyond. Thereby illustrating seeing and 
hearing in a wider sense - by emphasizing or consistent dropping of 
one of the two elements.
(more information and entry forms under:*.pdf)

[2] image without sound - or the sound in the background
two- or three-dimensional art in the public space

[3] sound without image - or the image in the mind
The main emphasis will lie on the discussion of  new concepts of 
sound production/manipulation and their 
presentation/mediation/distribution. An excursion into the world of 
tunes and sounds is going to present concerts, (live) radio plays, 
sound installations, radio art and net audio projects.

[4] sound and image -  or the image within space
>From monomedia to multimediea. media breaks, interaction und 
collaboration, frontier-crossing and synthesis. attempts to visualise 
sound and to set images to music.

- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
garage is platform for art and culture. It is situated in the midst 
of the silo area in Stralsund's old port and understands itself as a
non-commercial, temporally limited space for the suppport of inter-

Ausschreibung -------------------------------- 5. Festival garage 2001
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
- --------------------- vom 27.7. bis zum 26.8.2001 in Stralsund/Germany
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
- ------------------------------------------------ zwischen Bild und Ton

Was passiert zwischen Bild und Ton?

"Das Auge ist ein Herr,  das Ohr ein Knecht" (Jakob Grimm) - die 
Dominanz des visuellen über das akustische Wahrnehmen ist 
kultugeschichtlich allgegenwärtig. Selbstverständlich aber auch ihre 
einander bedingende/beeinflussende Wechselbeziehung. Das 
Funktionieren des gesamten Wahrnehmungsaparates ist sinnlich und 
physikalisch nur im Zusammenspiel beider möglich. Was passiert 
beispielsweise, wenn ich einer Raumwahrnehmung die akustische oder 
die visulelle Komponente entziehe, wie verändert sich dieser Raum? 
Oder was geschieht, wenn beide Wahrnehmungsspuren desynchronisiert 

Das Verhältnis zwischen Bild und Ton ist flüchtig; Gesehenes und 
Gehörtes sind Bestandteil eines assoziativen Gefüges, das sich immer 
wieder neu formieren kann - in räumlicher, zeitlicher und 
inhaltlicher Hinsicht.

garage 01 will sich dieser Beziehung aus verschieden Richtungen nähern.
Es soll zunächst der Versuch unternommen werden, die (Mono)Medien, 
soweit möglich und sinnvoll, isoliert dazustellen und wahrzunehmen.
Die Auseinandersetzung kann auf formaler, thoretischer, ausstellungs-/
aufführungspraktischer oder inhaltlich thematischer Grundlage geführt
Im weitern soll nach neuen Möglichkeiten der Synthese bzw. des
Nebeneinanders von Bild und Ton gefragt werden.
Das Medium als Instrument - der Raum als Experimentierfläche.

Relevanz und Wirksamkeit von Kunst über einen ästhetischen Selbstzweck
hinaus zu prüfen, die Suche nach der Rolle von Sender und Empfänger im
"Gesamtdatenwerk" ist wesentlicher Schwerpunkt des Programms.

Das Festival wird wie bisher 4 Wochen lang Ausstellungen, Konzerte,
Vorträge, Filmscreenings, Workshops präsentieren, die unter drei
Hauptschwerpunkten zusammengefasst werden.

Gesucht sind Arbeiten und Projektvorschläge zu:

[1] Bild mit Ton - oder das Bild an der Wand
Drittes internationales Kurzfilmfestival g-niale vom 2.-5. August 2001
Das Thema der g-niale bezieht sich auf das Gesamtfestival. Dabei soll 
es um eine bewußte filmische Auseinandersetzung mit den Einzelmedien 
und ihrer Durchmischung gehen, soll das Sehen und das Hören 
thematisiert werden - ob durch Betonung oder konsequentes Weglassen 
eines der beiden Elemente.
(ausführliche Ausschreibungsunterlagen unter:*.pdf)

[2] Bild ohne Ton - oder der Ton im Hintergrund
zwei- oder dreidimensionale Kunst im öffentlichen Raum

[3] Ton ohne Bild - oder das Bild im Kopf
Im Vordergrund wird hier die Auseinandersetzung mit neuen Konzepten der
Klangerzeugung/Bearbeitung und deren Präsentation/Vermittlung/ 
Verbreitung stehen. Auf einem Exkurs in die Welt der Töne und Klänge 
sollen Konzerte, (Live)Hörspiele und -stücke, Klanginstallationen, 
Radio(art)- und Netzaudioprojekte vorgestellt werden.

[4] Ton und Bild -  oder das Bild im Raum
Von Monomedien zu Multimedien. Medienbrüche, Interaktion und 
Kollaboration, Grenzüberschreitungen und Synthesen. Versuche zur 
Visualisierung von Klang bzw. der Vertonung von Bild.
