Subject: online scholarship


I am sending you this email to inform you of the scholarship for internet
art and communication, which we at boost GmbH are rewarding to promising
net artists for the duration of 6 months. Goal of the scholarship is to
establish a net art site, www.netzkunsthaus.org.  Part of this site, and
the responsibility of the scholar, will be an up-to-date collection of net
art resources. The other part will be for free use to the artist. Here the
scholar should establish an internet art project, focusing on the
interaction between visitor and artist hence the interaction with the
visitors should be incorporated into the project.  We at boost will not
only support the scholar with our hard- and software, but also our
knowledge in programming and other internet skills. In addition, the
scholar will receive DM 3000. Further information on the scholarship and

Ye leaders of the net art world-

Perhaps the members of your list or associates would be interested in the

Responses. The Director will oversee development of new undergraduate and
graduate programs in technocultural studies, will provide direction and
planning for multimedia facilities and studios, and will develop a strong
public presence for the Center. Responsibilities will include curriculum
and faculty development, fund raising, and the development of partnerships
with innovators in the digital arts, media and industries as well as
research and teaching. The Center will complement existing programs in the
Division of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies [HARCS], and provide a
bridge between HARCS and the social sciences, engineering, sciences and
agriculture. The position will be a senior appointment and requires a
Ph.D., MFA, or equivalent, a record of strong scholarly or artistic
accomplishment and evidence of a sustained commitment to interdisciplinary
research and collaboration. This appointment has a beginning date of

(1) Tokyo, 4 Weeks
A 'Present' Based on Disorder
about Real and Imaginary Flowers: A Tomato Project

recommended by Noda Tsutomu

If there were such a thing as a youth culture supermarket of the
1990s, which would have Clooney cut, club smile, figure, and turn-
table, the design group Tomato and the band Underworld would take
up most of the space on the shelves. Tomato's designs and Under-
world's music are symbols of the era. The influence continues....
This installation by Tomato is the largest ever shown in Japan....


(2) Out of Tokyo
Far Middle East
text by Ozaki Tetsuya

On the day the US and British air forces bombed Iraq, I went to
Kamakura by train. The late winter sky above the old city was
clear and blue. The plum trees had started to bloom. It was hard
to believe that there was a war going on somewhere far away.
Because it was the weekend, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine was packed
with tourists. But the Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura, which is on
the same property, was almost empty. The exhibition 'Israeli Art -
Modern: Messages to the New Millennium' was showing....

Birlinghoven, Sankt Augustin (Bonn), 21-22.09.2001

cast01: Symposium on Communication of Art, Science and Technology

We invite you to participate in the cast01 symposium on intersections of
artistic, cultural, technological and scientific issues of:

Living in Mixed Realities

What does it mean to live, play and work in a world shaped and perceived
through digital media, networks and architectures of real-virtual space?

The development of complex communication spaces, life environments and
economic models is an interplay of technical, social, and artistic
forces - Mixed Realities of Art, Science and Technology.

The design of a Mixed Reality Architecture, which connects processes in
virtual space to the social environments and cultural practices of real
places, presents challenges to technologists, scientists and artists
alike. In such an architecture the basic design elements are networked
structures for new forms of collaborative work and knowledge discovery,
human-centred interaction and awareness, media spaces and advanced

At cast01 scientists will present technologies and infrastructures that
address these challenges. Artists will present aesthetic concepts of
digital culture and new interactive media formats. cast01 is an
invitation for a discussion between artistic practices and the forefront
of research and development of information technologies.

cast01 is organised by netzspannung.org and by the GMD - German National
Research Center for Information Technology. It is supported by the
German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (bmb+f) and by the
European Commission.

Game and Scripting Classes Online

2 online classes, who live at opensorcery.net,  are up and currently 
in progress.  you may peruse links, readings, and sample scripts, 
take the quake quiz, or learn to write a behavior in lingo.



The course will introduce students to an understanding of multimedia 
scripts and software as a time-based artistic medium. The course will 
locate art software practice within a history of process-oriented art 
forms and look at examples of software created by artists. In course 
activities and art projects students will be encouraged to experiment 
with a variety of scripting approaches. Section One of this course, 
ten weeks, will teach scripting with Macromedia Director's Lingo. 
Subsequent sections will teach other languages including JavaScript, 
Perl, and more advanced Lingo, within net art and network gaming 
contexts. Tutorials and scripting exercises will supplement the 
programming skills employed in art projects.

Unit 1. Multimedia, Software, and Art Process
Unit 2. Interactivity
Unit 3. Scripting Fundamentals
Unit 4. Nanopet Pet Project
Unit 5. Drawing Tool Project



The course will investigate various ways that active cultural 
production by gamers functions as art. The course will begin with 
creative exercises in game character building and graphical avatar 
design with attention to identity, gendering and violence. Students 
will then be introduced to the digital folk art of game add-ons and 
asked to make artistic interventions in gaming culture. Avid 
participation in gamer fan culture often serves as a foundation for 
later game design in the gaming industry.

Unit 1. Identity and Role Playing Games
Unit 2. Avatars and Gender Building: Monster Friendly
Unit 3. Pixelated Blood and Shooter Games
Unit 4. Artistic Interventions and the Digital Folk Art of Gamers
