23 February 2001: Inauguration of  Sarai: The New Media Initiative,
Delhi  - in partnership with the Society for Old and New Media (de Waag)

Sarai is a programme of the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies,
Delhi, one of India's best known research institutes.

Sarai will open its doors to the public on 23 February 2001 with a festive
three-day programme of presentations, informal workshops, screenings,
lectures and panel discussions on old & new media and urban culture. The
event will feature encounters and dialogue between media practitioners,
scholars and activists, from India and abroad, around the theme of "The
Public Domain".

The focus of the Sarai's activities will be on innovative research and
cultural practice across old and new media forms . At its well-equipped
location in Delhi, Sarai offers an environment for innovative encounters
between media practitioners, software programmers, theorists, social
activists and the public.Sarai's primary aim is to engage with the
creativity of the broad and diverse spectrum of media practitioners from
non-elite backgrounds and address contmeporary popular urban culture. Sarai
also aims to establish a new media network in South Asia with strong global
links. Projects will be initiated on media history, urban culture and
politics, new media theory, Internet and software culture, documentary
film, digital art and critical cultural practice.

Sarai emerged from a unique form of collaboration between media theorists &
practitioners.The initiators of the Sarai Programme are : Ravi Sundaram &
Ravi Vasudevan, fellows of the Centre for the Study of Developing
Societies, and Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula & Shuddhabrata Sengupta of the
Raqs Media Collective.

The Society for Old and New Media (de Waag) have been partners of the Sarai
initiative from its inception. The Waag and Sarai have jointly formulated a
three year exchange programme, running from 2000- 2002. The mission of this
partnership is to explore and demonstrate new possibilities of
collaboration in a cross-cultural context. Professionals associated with
the Waag Society and Sarai participated in workshops designed to help set
up the technical infrastructure at Sarai in the run up to the opening. In
the coming two years a series of Sarai-Waag workshops and other joint
excercises will be held (both in India and in the Netherlands).These
encounters will focus on the sharing of knowledge and develop collaborative
projects in new technologies, the media, and internet culture.

Topical articles and reports concerning the Sarai-Waag collaborative
initiative will be made available online in the Sarai-Waag  Journal. Users
of the Journal will be able to input their comments and discuss them with
the writers and each other in this online magazine.The Journal will be
available from 23 February onwards on the websites of the Waag and Sarai.

The two partners aim to strengthen the relationship between the new media
cultures of South Asia and Europe. With the opening of Sarai and the start
of the exchange programme, an important step forward is being taken in the
forging of a new network for knowledge sharing, cross cultural
communication and empowerment.

Sarai is made possible with the support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, the Daniel Langlois Foundation (Canada), the Centre for the Study
of Developing Societies (India) and the HIVOS Cultural Foundation

Profits of Punishment

"I don't like empty beds. We are a private business"
Mike Samberg -  CCA prison warden

Profits of Punishment  Directed by Catherine Scott ( and 
Produced by Pat
Fiske will screen on COURT TV on JAN 31 2001 at 10pm EST and Feb 3rd at 6pm

Profits of Punishment is about business behind bars in the United States.
The film's main focus is on the jailers and the glitzy commercial arena of
the prison industry.  This is contrasted with the world of their captives
living out their confined lives on the inside.  The prison is a
long-standing image of state power.  What effect will it have on our
society now that the bright new prison is becoming an image of corporate
power as well?  What does it mean for democracy if community safety
increasingly becomes tied to the thriving business of locking up large
numbers of people?

In the era of "Law and Order" and "Zero Tolerance", tough new sentencing
laws adopted by the US and many other countries are resulting in an influx
of prisoners, creating massive overcrowding. Rather than looking at
alternatives that might prevent crime and reduce prison populations,
governments are responding to this crisis by increasing the prison capacity
and contracting prison to private multinational corporations. This has
created an international prison market dominated by a handful of
American-based companies.

Profits of Punishment follows the prison entrepreneurs to places behind the
glossy brochures, to a giant prison convention. Here we observe hundreds of
salesmen marketing the latest prison products such as portable restraint
devices, stackable cells and the latest surveillance technology.  People
like George Wackenhut - a self-made billionaire who has amassed his giant
fortune through his international security firm and Corrections
Corporation, highlights the burgeoning market in private prisons.  Private
prison pioneers discuss their strategies to create a more cost-effective,
innovative, clean, lean incarcerating machine.

In Texas we visit a factory assembly line in the Lockhart Work Facility, a
private prison owned and managed by the Wackenhut Corporation. This on-site
prison factory produces circuit boards for LTI, a company that had closed
its previous facility in Austin.  One hundred and fifty people lost their
jobs before the company opened a new factory months later inside Lockhart

Companies such as CCA and Wackenhut are willing to build huge prison
complexes on spec in the likelihood that they will be filled. In California
City, an economic backwater in the middle of the Mojave Desert, CCA has
built a $110 million prison to house 2.300 people.  Sheriff Apaio who runs
a tent jail in the desert of Arizona, adapts a quote from the movie "Field
of Dreams," to describe the situation - "you build it and they'll come."

Sheriff Apaio is the ultimate "get tough on crime" folk hero, promoting
himself as an "equal opportunity incarcerator."  He has initiated the first
ever women's chain gang complete with stripped uniforms.  Despite working
nine hours a day, seven days a week, the inmates are expected to pay $1 a
day for baloney sandwiches.

Profits of Punishment is an emotional experience, but also a
thought-provoking study of the reality of a booming prison industry and its
commercialisation through the development of private prisons.

Press release:  New Web Soap Goes Live on 9 February 2001
desperate optimists -

map50 is a new 63-part web-soap set in North East London produced by
desperate optimists. The first seven episodes will be launched on February
9th 2001 and can be seen at or at the ICA's new media centre.
>From 9 February  until 6th April, seven new episodes will be uploaded every

desperate optimists are a collective of artists and for map50 they have
brought together web designers, digital artists, photographers, video makers
and performance artists to contribute to a challenging and refreshing
web-soap. map50 is a story in nine parts and desperate optimists
commissioned seven individual artists to make their own version of the story
- - creating 63 episodes, making map50 seven radically divergent versions of
one narrative. 

The story is a sprawling, provocative tale of petty fraud, substance abuse
and bloody violence which takes place in North East London over 24 hours. It
is played out across the individual grid co-ordinates of map 50 of the
Greater London Street Atlas. map50 fully exploits the potential of web
authoring software and this is reflected in the diverse range of strategies
and approaches that can be seen across the episodes ranging from animation
to surveillance, and from archival interactive photography to
classic photo-roman. What each episode offers is a thought provoking and
compelling take on the experience of walking through, coping with and
surviving in any contemporary city.

For map50, desperate optimists are joined by the artists Chris
Dorley-Brown,The Max Factory, Roney Fraser-Munroe, Alan Howley and
pleasant_net, the designers/programmers Nicky Gogan and Simon Byford and the
performer Gillian Wylde. map50 was filmed on the streets of London in
November 2000. 

"Follow this web-soap and have your mental map of Hackney redrawn as you
find yourself on stray paths connecting your own version of events from the
many hidden fragments and clues offered up." desperate optimists

The first 7 episodes of map50 will be launched on February 9th 2001 in the
new media centre at the ICA and then can be seen at every
Friday until 9th April. is funded by the Arts Council of England and supported by the ICA
New Media Centre and a Live Art Development Agency/London Arts One To One

Chris Dorley-Brown, a one time photographic archivist for Hackney Council,
cracked open his photographic archive and set about revisiting the exact
locations of 9 of the photographs he had taken years earlier - in some cases
up to 14 years earlier.  He then 'restaged' the exact shots but this time in
the year 2000 and with the added quirky presence of the fictional character
from map50.  What we experience here is the oscillation of the story
experienced through the, at times radical, transformation of an urban space.
In one location for example, old Victorian Œstyle¹ town-houses now exist
where tower blocks once stood and, absurdly, in one location it seems that
nothing more than the curtain been pulled has changed over in the
intervening 14 years.  For map50 what Dorley-Brown offers the viewer is a
highly interactive Œthen' and 'now¹ experience that not only taps into
questions about memory and place but also offers up some wonderfully funny
and unintentionally provocative juxtapositions.

Working from Frankfurt, Weimar and Berlin, the pleasant_net group approached
their episodes from the stand point of who they are - German tourists in
North East London.  On a simple day their Œresearch¹ involved staying in a
(modest!!) hotel in Dalston and visiting hot spots like Cedra Court, where
Reggie Kray once lived, but on a complicated day things got derailed and
suddenly, given the cultural diversity of this part of London, they needed
to question what London is.  What we get, therefore, is a unique Œvisitors¹
take on this very untouristy part of London played out as if it could be a
genuine holiday destination.

Joe Lawlor(desperate optimists) has used footage borrowed from over 48 of
Hackney's strategically placed surveillance cameras.  Lawlor then
painstakingly pieces together the movements of a single white female as she
walks through this locale.  Surprising it reveals the extent to which
someone's movements can be tracked, but  it also asks as much about the
experience of living in a large contemporary city.


desperate optimists: over the last eight years desperate optimists have
established themselves as a leading UK art group having created and
presented many high profile and successful works both nationally and
internationally.  Central to their work has been the creative exploration of
new technology and narrative.  Recent web work includes the highly

    recommended by Hibino Katsuhiko

Noda Map's extra performance is always held in a small theatre
with a small cast. For instance, 'Shi' was performed by Noda and
Hashizume Isao. This time it will be the ultimate in minimalism:
a one-man play. While I am writing this, he is in the middle of

The Splendid Accomplishment of 'Eureka' and 'L'empire des sens 2000'
by Ozaki Tetsuya

The Japanese movie industry is a little more considerate of foreign
filmgoers than its European and American counterparts.  The good
fortune of those from other countries is limited, however, to films
made in their own languages.  This is because most foreign films
are not dubbed into Japanese, but shown in the original language
with Japanese subtitles.  There are few cases where Japanese films
are shown with foreign-language subtitles.  It's a shame that non-
Japanese speaking film fans in Japan cannot have access to Japanese
films in this age of 'internationalization'....
