Subject: international rooftop video

Would you like to shoot a 30 second or 1 minute clip to be part of an
international no-budget collaborative short film?

Here's the deal.
Jean Poole and Jesse in Brisbane Australia, are making a short film set
on rooftops, ably assisted by the co-scripting Rebecca from Melbourne,
and tech-assistant Iko in France.

Themes we're interested in exploring in this film include:
What does it mean to be alive in the age of the network?
The increasing mediatisation of experience and the virtualization of
And where are you when in cyberspace or on the phone?

These themes are loose however, and our plan is to collect and stitch
together a range of short films shot on different rooftops around the
world - one from each continent would be cool, but at this point any
clips would be a bonus, and suitable for this experiment.

That it is even possible to make a film this way excites us, but the
challenges will be in linking together the footage, and editing it to
make a final coherent piece.

Looking for any willing peeps to collaborate
"&" need your pixels by 15-22 of Oct....
or email us if u definitely want to contribute but will be a little
later :-)

Nice very nice   -   Part IV (web-art)


Through the world,

	why of your live?

'Impronta' (Fingerprint) is a conceptual web-art project: a dialog between 
virtual and real identities.
It's composed by a series of different photos, taken in several places 
around the world, and now published on the web. This is an ongoing process, 
being a reflection of everyday's life. My fingerprint is a link, a real 
touch, and it remains as a virtual trace. A sort of diary, telling about 
shiftings, visions, meetings...

Subject: A. Broeckmann: Visual Economy of Individuals - online!

[the PhD thesis which i finished early in 1995 is finally online; after
many delays and doubts about a book publication i decided to make the text
available on the web so that people can take a look at it and use its
research results which include some, i believe, original interpretations of
material on (mainly scientific) 19th-century photography; a familiar
problem was that, the longer the manuscript was lying around, the more i
thought it would need serious revisions to make a worthwhile book out of
it; i'm afraid it might require a future year of unemployment to write that
up ... there is no index, but the table of contents is pretty detailed, and
searching through the different chapters will help. i'm grateful to Larisa
Blazic from novi sad <lab {AT} EUnet.yu> for html-ising the whole thing and
giving it a clear and, i think, easily navigable design. mistakes, incl.
typos, are obviously my responsibility, and i would be glad if you reported
them. relieved - abroeck]

PhD Thesis
Andreas Broeckmann

A Visual Economy of Individuals:
The Use of Portrait Photography in the Nineteenth-Century Human Sciences.


This study investigates the uses of portrait photography in the
nineteenth-century sciences of Anthropology, Psychiatry, and Criminal
Anthropology, and discusses these practices in relation to applications of
photography in Criminalistics, and to the portraits made by high street
photographers. The main examples for these photographic practices are taken
from various European countries, including France, Britain, Germany,
Austria, and Italy, and are discussed and compared in their respective
social, historical, and scientific contexts. Among the sources which are
being examined are the British manual Notes & Queries and the works of
Gustav Fritsch in Anthropology, the writings of John Conolly, Henri Legrand
du Saulle and other psychiatrists, the publications and collections of
criminologists like Cesare Lombroso, Enrico Ferri, and Alexandre
Lacassagne, and the literature on Alphonse Bertillon's system of police
photography. Other material under discussion includes the publications of
Paul Broca, Charles Darwin, A. A. E. Disderi, Francis Galton, Henry P.
Robinson, and the influential French photographer Albert Londe.
	The study assesses recent contributions to the historiography of
scientific representation and seeks to re-evaluate the significance of
photography in the period between 1850 and 1900. It is argued that the
epistemological status of photographs hinged on the emotive impact they had
on the observer. Ultimately, it was the latter's subjective reaction that
served to affirm the status of objectivity of the representations.
Simultaneously, the observer's subjectivity itself was articulated by the
practices involved in the use of portrait photographs. The dispositif
photographique thus served to constitute a visual economy of individuals
which contributed to the affirmation of social positions and a distinct
sense of self for the social agents.

Update of the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) Network

We have begun a new series entitled GaWC World City Commentaries
http://www.lboro.ac.uk/gawc/comment.html which feature short newspaper
pieces on world cities. The series is launched with 23 short commentaries
written by Jan Nijman in his column "Miami in Perspective". They were first
published in that city's aptly named newspaper WorldCity. INVITATION: if
there are any other such short articles on world city matters we would be
delighted to present them to a larger audience through the new series.

There have been seven GaWC Research Bulletins since the last update:

RB 51  "Reconstructing space, recreating memory: sectarian politics and
urban development in postwar Beirut"
By Caroline Nagle .

RB 52  "New political geographies 'twixt places and flows"
By Peter Taylor  

RB 53 "Globalization and development strategies for Istanbul"
By Aykut Karaman and Tuzin Baycan Levent

RB 54 "Rediscovering cities and urbanization in the 21st century
world-system" http://www.lboro.ac.uk/gawc/rb/rb54.html
By David Smith

 RB 55 "Multiple globalizations: regional, hierarchical and sector
articulations of global business services through world cities"
By Peter Taylor, Gilda Catalano and David Walker

 RB 56 "Diversity and power in the world city network"
By Peter Taylor, David Walker, Gilda Catalano and Michael Hoyler

 RB 57 "Tel Aviv, Israel - a world city in evolution: urban development at
a deadend of the global economy"
By Baruch A Kipnis

A new data set has been posted since the last update:

travel, 1977-1997" http://www.lboro.ac.uk/gawc/datasets/da10.html
