Subject: Privacy Lecture Series - Pamela Samuelson, Jan. 17, 2002



[The Privacy Lecture Series re-starts this coming week with a talk by 
Pamela Samuelson, one of the most renowed cyber-rights advocate in the U.S. 
Pamela's work in the sphere of copyright and intellectual property (IP), 
defending basic individual rights against advances by powerful 
corporations, has made her internationally aclaimed. This lecture will 
bring together the issues of privacy and intellectual property.

Check the date and time below. The location is the same as last term. Best.

PRIVACY LECTURE SERIES
<http://privacy.openflows.org>

PAMELA SAMUELSON
PRIVACY DIMENSIONS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Thursday, January 17, 2002
6:45-8:00PM

140 St. George, Room 728
Faculty of Information Studies (building adjacent to Robarts Library)
University of Toronto

The lectures are free of charge and you do NOT have to register.

Abstract

As the content industries expand the scope of intellectual property (IP) 
and the technological means for enforcement, important other social values 
are negatively affected such as freedom of speech, freedom of research and 
privacy. In this talk Pam Samuelson, will focus on the right to privacy and 
how it is affected by the emerging new copyright regime, for instance, how 
do we balance individuals' right control their private sphere with 
corporate rights to control their property and combat piracy? Are new 
systems, which force users to license content and to establish a permanent 
relation with the right holders, for example in Windows XP, an intrusion 
into the user's private sphere? Can the issue of privacy be used to fight 
the seemingly limitless expansion of rights of IP holders?



Bio

with a joint appointment in the School of Information Management and 
Systems and the School of Law. She is also Director of the Berkeley Center

Subject: Hybrid Discourse

Expanding Territory: Culture Industry and Digital Media

Hybrid-Discourse (www.i-dat.org/hybrid/projects) is a series of events
investigating current cultural debates in the context of digital media.
Focusing on key issues such as relations between art and industry, emerging
cultural, commercial and hybrid practices as well as new models of
institutional practices this program seeks to re-address critical terms of
Adorno and Horkheimer's original concept of the culture industry in a
current context.

In response to this invited speakers will explore various areas of cultural
practice including cultural criticism, artistic, curatorial an
entrepreneural practice.

Speakers include Sally Jane Norman, Jeremy Valentine, Josephine Bosma,
Jordan Crandall, Neil Cummings,Marysia Lewandowska,
Simon Ford, Elisa Giaccardi ,Clive Gillman, Volker Grassmuck,
Marina Grzinic Mauhler,  Olia Lialina, Paul D. Miller, Anne Nigten,
Kate Rich, ®ark, Soda,  Piotr Krajewski and Violetta Kutlubasis-Krajewska

All events will take place in Plymouth, UK but everything will be webcast
and archived on the Hybrid Discourse web site. There will also be a
discussion board on the site so that those who can not be present in
Plymouth can contribute to the conversations and debates.

www.i-dat.org/hybrid/projects

Hybrid Discourse is organised by Joasia Krysa and Anya Lewin.

Curatorial Practices and Institutional Practices sessions are organised in
collaboration with Geoff Cox, Lina Dzuverovic­Russell and Tina Sotiriadi as
a part of Instituting Data Exposition hosted by the Institute of Digital Art
and Technology.

With support from the Institute of Digital Art and Technology, Dartington
College of Arts,  World of Work, Mute, and the European Social Fund.

entwickelte visuelle Produktionen. Der besondere Schwerpunkt des Programms
liegt auf dem Zusammenspiel von live generierter Musik und live erzeugten
Video-Animationen.
Die Kuenstler und Projekte im club_transmediale arbeiten in
Netzwerkstrukturen oder stellen sich selbst abseits des Mainstreams der
"DJ-Culture" sie arbeiten z.B. mit selbsterstelltem Material oder
produzieren ihre Arbeitsmittel unabhaengig, in Form eigens programmierter
Softwaretools und manipulierter Geraete.
Erstmalig kooperiert der club_transmediale mit zwei internationalen
Festivals fuer neue elektronische Medien und Musik dem Mutek Festival aus
Montreal (www.mutek.ca) sowie dem Sonic Acts Festival (www.sonicacts.com)
aus Amsterdam.

In hyperkomplexen virtuellen 3D-Raeumen erzeugen Action-Bots eine sich
stets veraendernde Bild- und Klang-Umgebung. NYBBLE Engine beruht auf einer
von Jahrmann und Moswitzer umprogrammierten Software fuer Computerspiele,
wie sie auch fuer die Produktion von Machinima-Filmen benutzt wird. Die
Performance zeigt eine ganz neue, generative Dimension des Cyberspace.

4. Performances Palindrome / John deKron

Mithilfe von Motion-Tracking-Systemen bespielen die Tänzer der Palindrome
Dance Company den Raum als virtuelles Instrument. Bewegung und Klang werden
eng miteinander verwoben und verweisen auf die Utopie einer Verschmelzung
von Mensch, Maschine und Umgebung. Der Raum wird zum klingenden
Ausdrucksmittel der tänzerischen Interaktion. www.palindrome.de

In "Reflektion" erzeugt John deKron ein interaktives Selbstportrait, indem
er mit seinem
selbstprogrammierten VJ-Videomischer auf sich und seine Bewegungen, aber
auch auf das umgebende Publikum und den Raum selbst direkt reagiert und
audiovisuell reflektiert. www.thisserver.de

Die Performance der Palindrome Intermedia Performance Group ("... seine
hohle Form ...") ist am Anfang der Preisverleihung der transmediale Awards
zu sehen, die Performance von John deKron beim anschliessenden Empfang.

4. Performances Palindrome / John deKron

With the help of motion tracking systems, the dancers of the Palindrome
Dance Company work with space as a virtual instrument. Movement and sound
are closely interwoven with one another, and refer to the utopia of a
melting of human being, machine and surroundings. The space becomes a
resounding expression of the dancing interaction. www.palindrome.de

In "Reflektion" John deKron generates an interactive self-portrait by
directly reacting to and audiovisually reflecting on his own movements, the
surrounding audience and the space itself with his self-programmed VJ-video
mixer. www.thisserver.de

The performance of the Palindrome Intermedia Performance Group ("... seine
hohle Form ...") will be shown at the beginning of the transmediale Award
Ceremony, the performance by John deKron during the reception afterwards.

ABOUT THE COURSE

The advent of digital technologies has arguably been the most important 
development for contemporary art practice since the invention of 
photography. New media art has recently been the subject of major 
exhibitions in Europe and the USA. At the same time the use of remote 
technologies is allowing artists to move beyond the gallery to exhibit and 
distribute their work, severing a reliance on traditional institutions, and 
catalysing new social sub-cultures and networks. New forms of artistic 
practice are emerging, which are entirely specific to digital culture.
