Subject: JoDI: a special issue on Hypertext Criticism

Journal of Digital Information announces
(Volume 1, issue 7, January 2001)
Guest Editor: Susana P. Tosca, Oxford Brookes University, UK

 From the special issue editorial
"Hypertext critics work with software and computer languages that support
hypertextual structures and think about how using it can affect the ways we
present or recover information as authors and readers, and even the way we
think about information. This special issue brings some fresh air and a new
perspective to Hypertext Criticism. Four brilliant young authors have
contributed to the issue, which we really believe is special due to its
innovative content and form."

The issue includes the following papers:

M. Engebretsen, Hypernews and Coherence

A. Miles, Hypertext in the Dark: cinematic narration with links

A. Rau, Wreader's Digest - How to Appreciate Hyperfiction

J. Walker, Child's game confused: reading Juliet Ann Martin's oooxxxooo.

The Journal of Digital Information is an electronic journal published only

*    First Call For Papers
*    ---------------------
*    COSIGN 2001
*    1st International Conference on
*    (
*    Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
*    September 12 - September 14, 2001


This cross-disciplinary conference explores the ways in which semiotics
(and related theories such as structuralism and post-structuralism) can be
applied to creating and analysing computer-based media. It is intended for
anyone with an interest in areas of overlap (or potential overlap) between
semiotics and interactive digital media - including artists, designers,
critics, computer scientists, HCI and AI practitioners, semioticians,
narratologists and new media practitioners.

Semiotics is the study of signs, symbols and signification, and is
therefore the study of how meaning is created, encoded and understood.
Computational semiotics is understood here to be the application of
semiotic theories to interactive digital media and has three main areas
(which overlap). They are:

* The way in which meaning can be created by, encoded in, or understood by,
the computer (using systems or techniques based upon semiotics).

* The way in which meaning in interactive digital media is understood by the
viewer or user (again using systems or techniques based upon semiotics).

* The use of semiotics as the starting point for a system for looking
critically at the content of interactive digital media - devising a
critical framework equivalent in status and depth to art theory or academic
film criticism.

Interactive digital media here refers to computer-based media that responds
to the user's input. This response can either be in real-time, responding
continuously to the changing input of the user, or generatively, based on
initial settings provided by the user. It incorporates one or more
modalities including digital video and audio, live-rendered and
pre-rendered 2D or 3D graphics, still images and text, etc.

Input may make use of conventional keyboard, mouse, joystick or game pad,
data glove, or sensor technology of any type. Output may be through
conventional screen technology (including data projectors), 3D
visualization systems (including VR goggles and CAVE systems), haptics, and
other new interaction technologies.

Media that make use of the unique capabilities of digital systems are of
particular interest to this conference. These include: computer games,
interactive narratives and other forms of interactive entertainment;
interactive video, virtual reality systems and virtual environments; and

COSIGN 2001 invites the following submissions:
1. Academic Papers
2. Media Artworks
3. Posters and technical demonstrations


1. Academic Papers

Papers are invited on any subject that explores areas of overlap (or
potential overlap) between semiotics and interactive digital media.
Examples of this include, but are not limited to, the following:

* The use of semiotics in the study and criticism of digital interactive media.
* Narratology in new media.
* The use of semiotics in the creation of generative narrative systems,
interactive digital games, entertainment and artworks.
* Semiotic-orientated HCI.
* Software architectures and technologies using (or based upon) semiotic
theories, systems or models.
* The use of semiotics in AI.
* Semiotics and Hypermedia.

::::: w3art . internet services for the art community :::::


A total of 274 galleries from 30 countries will be attending the 20th
International Contemporary Art Fair, ARCO, which will be held in Madrid from
14-19 February. The scheduled programme will include a broad spectrum from
the current international art scene, with the representation of over 1,500

The guest of honour at this new edition, at which ARCO is commemorating its
20th Anniversary, will be the United Kingdom, whose proposal is a faithful
reflection of the process of transformation that the British art world is
going through. The selection has been curated by Charles Esche, Matthew
Higgs and Kim Sweet. Along with this and other well-established section such
as "Cutting Edge" and "Project Rooms," which will contribute new viewpoints
on the emerging art produced in different parts of the world, two new
projects have been added for this twentieth edition. One is the launch of
"ARCO online", the first project to create a Virtual Art Fair, and the other
is the presentation of the sculptural programme titled "Open Spaces," which
will offer a new look at art as an integral part of public and urban space.

Coping with Chaos in High Places

Based on a forthcoming book of the same title

"In these days of confusion in experts, we all need to become experts in


    I'll introduce a model of confusion dynamics, the vicious cycle in which
sources of confusion (information overload, complexity, ambiguity, etc.}
evoke ineffective coping tactics (lies, jargon, spin, oversimplification,
polarization.) These tactics worsen the original sources, and some
confounded elites then begin emitting lethal decay products.
    We'll run OPERATION MEDICI, a simulation exercise illustrating the
dynamics via a three-country political and military crisis.
    I'll apply the model to the Johnson administration's confusion during
the decision to escalate the US involvement in the Vietnam War in 1965.
    We'll examine my successes and failures in using fuzzy cognitive maps to
forecast events in real time during the US/NATO bombing campaign against
Serbia, 1999. (Those predictions are still on my site -see below.)
    Participants will test for themselves whether a knowledge of confusion
dynamics can increase empathy between opposing factions.

The presenter: I'm William R. Taylor, M.D., a retired civilian psychiatrist
with twenty years' experience in tracking confusion dynamics in the media
and in my own life. I spent two years in the Vietnam era as a Navy
psychiatrist in Philadelphia, caring for Marines, sailors and their

You'll find an earlier version of confusion dynamics, and the 1999 Kosovo
forecasts, on my site:

Subject: events in Bristol UK


Two nights exploring surveillance and counter-surveillance.

Saturday February 24th 2 o'clock St.James Barton Subway (the Bearpit)

"Lets flood the cctv operators with incident and spotaneously constructed
street occurences".
'Broadmead CCTV games event'
A non-rules games tournament with umlimited play possiblities.
Ideas so far:
Throw wet sponges at the cameras. Public protection cardboard barriers.
Make the security gaurd appear the fastest heats. Shoot Back with lots
of cameras. Documentation of cameras and charting of 'camera free'
areas of Bristol; stencil (sticker?) campaign to notify areas of
zero camera coverage. The same for the opposite.
Fake incidences. Approaches to Broadmead control to recover footage.

Saturday 9:00 'Spies, Cops & Gaurds; Control & Surveillance In Society.
(80 min ends 10:20)

A Rare programme of 16mm films covering all angles of state mentality for
control and order. From 'Red Nightmre' which looks into the american
paranoia of RED mind invasion to 'Mob And Riot Control', a californian
police instruction film on handling crowds and mobs of teenages.
In the bar afterwards will be a presentation of  from a member of the irational
collective and a talk about the days 'CCTV games' in Broadmead and showing
of any documentation made.

Sunday 8:00 Counter Attacks and inversions
Video tapes from BIT (bureau of inverse technology);bit plane, an
autonomous remote excursion into air space over silicon valley and
suicide box, video acts of suicide leaps from the golden gate bridge.
We'll also be showing video footage of the New York based
'Surveillance Camera Players' who perform various plays in front of cctv
networks in acts of social defiance.
Results from a shout out for cctv material will be screened.

for thorough coverage of the issues

What common themes and issues do these works address?
How are authors using new and changing technologies?
 Why are authors choosing the forms they choose--(what are we *saying*

- --------> «Les revues d'art contemporain entre imprimé et électronique:
évolutions récentes», une analyse de Gérard Régimbeau

Internet a provoqué, dans le champ de l'art contemporain, des changements
qui touchent à la médiation de l'information. Il a permis la naissance de la
revue électronique, nouvelle forme éditoriale, tout en imposant une phase
d'adaptation aux revues imprimées. Après un bref retour historiographique
sur l'étude des revues d'art contemporain, cet article s'attache à montrer
les diverses réactions des revues «classiques» face au défi de la diffusion
en ligne; à distinguer les différents projets de revues électroniques, des
plus anciennes aux plus récentes; puis à observer les maquettes des
différents sites. L'ensemble de ces repères permettant d'approcher
quelques-unes des fonctions médiatrices de la revue dans des réseaux où
l'art et l'édition croisent maintenant le réseau Internet.

- --------> «Langage(s) du Net» par Louis-José Lestocart

«L'art considéré ici sera donc, avant tout, méthode et langage - «actes de
langage» (speech acts) selon John Austin et John R. Searle, philosophes
analytiques du langage, pères de la linguistique performative : «Quand dire
c'est faire». [...] Avatar d'avatar ou avatar retourné (dans l'art
contemporain, on retourne le tableau en installation), bâti à la fois sur le
langage ésotérico-informatique (intralinguistique) et le langage performatif
inhérent à l'art du Net». Les oeuvres des artistes Mouchette, Olga
Kisseleva, Mark Amerika et Annie Abrahams sont étudiées dans cet article.

entretien avec Peter Lunenfeld», réalisé par Geert Lovink

Peter Lunenfeld enseigne dans le cadre du programme Media Design au Art
Center College of Design (Pasadena, Californie). Il vit à Los Angeles et il
a publié Snap to Grid: A User's Guide to Digital Arts, Media, and Culture
(MIT Press, 2000). En tant que critique actuel de la culture, il
contextualise le milieu quelque peu isolé et autoréférentiel lié aux projets
en nouveaux médias. Plutôt que de réduire le démo à une tentative inachevée,
il avance que «le démo est devenu une part essentielle de la pratique
artistique». «Je suis étonné de constater que nous sommes tous forcément
engagés dans des références d'une étendue auparavant inimaginable, qu'entre
autres, ce que nous attendons de la nouvelle génération d'applications
numériques ce sont, précisément, les outils et les méthodes pour nous aider
à faire du sens à partir de ce vaste flux d'informations.»
