PLEASE NOTE: I MISTAKENLY SENT OUT AN UNCORRECTED DRAFT LAST NIGHT OF THIS 
ANNOUNCEMENT. PLEASE REPLACE WITH THE FOLLOWING.
THANK YOU.




ACCION, 14 de agosto, 2002, para las mujeres asesinadas en Ciudad Juarez

El miercoles, 14 de agosto, 2002, se presentará un performance y unaprocesión 
organizados por Las Mujeres en Negro Proyecto-Arte y la artista
Coco Fusco para tomar consciencia los casi 800 casos de mujeres que han
sido matadas o desaparecidas durante los últimos diez años en Ciudad Juarez y
sus alrededores, Estado de Chihuahua.

El evento va a comenzar delante del edificio principal de la Organización de
Estados Americanos en la esquina de la calle 16th y la avenida Consitution en
Washington DC, a las 12 del dia. Las organizadoras quieren atraer unos 300
participantes quienes se reuniran con las figuras de las Mujeres en 
Negro en una
procesión solemne hacia las oficinas de la Comisión de Derechos Humanos de la
OEA, que estan ubicadas a unas cuadras del edificio principal. Los 
participantes se
vestirán como las trabajadoras de maquiladoras en la frontera
mexico-americana, o como las madres de las desaparecidas en Ciudad Juarez y
otras ciudades de México. Cada participante cargará la foto de una mujer
asesinada o desparecida.

Al llegar al edificio de la Comisíon de Derechos Humanos, una carta dirigida
al director de la Comisión será entregada a mano. Esta carta pedirá la
atención inmediata de la Comisión a una solicitud que fué enviada hace varios
meses por una organización de las familias de las mujeres asesinadas 
y desaparecidas.
Esta solicitud, que fué enviada a la Comisión, y a los oficiales del gobiero
de México a principios del 2002, pide que la Comisión proponga que las
matanzas y los secuestros en Chihuahua sean declaradas crimenes contra la
humanidad. Esperamos que esta declaración promoverá acción por parte de los
gobiernos de México y de los Estados Unidos, que hasta ahora, no han prestado
seria atención a lo que constituye una guera contra las mujeres jovenes
del Norte de México.


Para saber más acerca de las actividades que apoyan a las familias de las
mujeres matadas y desparecidas, pueden ver la página web:
http://www.geocities.com/pornuestrashijas.
Las Mujeres en Negro,  un movimiento internacional feminista a favor de
la paz activo en 30 paises, ha llevado a cabo sus vigilias en todos estos
paises para concientizar sobre la epidemia mundial de violencia contra 
lasmujeres, y el impacto exacerbante DE esta epidemia sobre las guerras y 
otros
conflictos sociales.

Este performance  de apoyo a las familias de las mujeres matadas y

desparecidas de Ciudad Juarez va a incorporar movimientos coreograficos de

mujeres que llevarán las tres vestimentas esculturales, que forman el corazón

del proyecto de las Mujeres en Negro, (vean www.artwomen.org/current.htm para

tener acceso a las fotos de estos vestuarios que fueron usados para el Dia
internacional de la Mujer, 2002).

Además del performance callejero, se montará una manifestación virtual contra
la OES y el gobierno de Chihuahua el mismo día, y la artista Adriene Jenik

nos acompañará virtualmente como Mujer en Negro digital dentro de varios 
espacios "chats" en el internet.

ACTION August 14, 2002 on Women Murdered in Ciudad Juarez
 
On Wednesday, August 14, 2002, there will be a performance and procession
organized by The Women in Black Art Project and artist Coco Fusco to raise
awareness about the now nearly 800 women who have been murdered or
"disappeared" in and around Ciudad Juarez, State of Chihuahua, Mexico over
the past decade.
 
The event will begin in front of the main Organization of American States
building at 17th and Constitution in Washington, DC, starting at noon.
The organizers hope to attract 300 participants who will join the costumed
Women in Black figures in a solemn procession to the offices of the OAS'
Commission on Human Rights several blocks away. Participants will wear
costumes that evoke the uniforms worn by female maquiladora workers, and
black garb similar to that worn by the mothers of the disappeared and
murdered young women in demonstrations conducted frequently in Ciudad
Juarez and other cities in Mexico. Each participant will carry a
photograph of a murdered or missing woman.

Upon arriving at the Commission on Human Rights office building, a letter
to the Commission Chairperson will be hand-delivered. The letter will urge
the speedy action by the Commission on a request addressed to it several
months ago by an organization of the families of the murdered and missing
women. The request, sent to the Commission, and to the appropriate
officials of the Government of Mexico in early 2002, demands that the
Commission declare the murders and abductions in Chihuahua a crime against
humanity. The hope is that such a declaration will encourage action
by the governments of both Mexico and the US, which, to date, have not
seriously addressed what constitutes a war against young women in Northern
Mexico.
 
To learn more about activities in support of the families of the murdered
and missing women, log on to http://www.geocities.com/pornuestrashijas.
 
The Women in Black Art Project, which is part of the international
feminist peace movement active in 30 countries, has been conducting vigils
to raise awareness of the worldwide pandemic of violence against women,
and the exacerbating effect on this pandemic of wars and other conflicts.

The performances in support of the families of the Ciudad Juarez murdered
and missing women will involve choreographed movements of women wearing
three sculptural costumes, the heart of the Women in Black Art Project
(see www.artwomen.org/current.htm for photos of the costumes in vigil on
International Women's Day, 2002).


In addition to the street action there will be a virtual sit-in against the 
OAS and the government of Chihuahua on the same day, and artist Adriene Jenik 
will accompany the Women in Black digitally by inserting W-I-B figures into 
various chat rooms.

PROGRAMME

we promise this time we really will start on time (sorry for last time, but it was first time this venue happened for four years+)

8.00pm >>> party doors open

9.00pm >>> Mike Slocombe, editor of http://www.urban75.com will discuss urban75 specifically and activism on and through the web in general 

10.00pm >>> Florian and others from http://www.hi-res.net will demo and discuss their work 

11.00pm >>> Elout de Kok > http://www.xs4all.nl/~elout/ > Pixel Jockey Xtraordinaire from Amsterdam will discuss and answer questions about his work 

12.00pm till dawn >>> elout, TOXI > and atty will create light and sounds.

The results of the open net-art arena 'net-art01' from http://www.net-art.ws will be announced during the evening

urban75.com ... 
With an independently accredited hit rate of over half a million individual users per month, urban75 is one of the most popular sites of its type on the web and lies at the heart of the 'alternative' non-commercial web experience for the UK. At the same time Mike's defining clarity of navigation through the plethora of information that urban75 carries sets the highest of standards for this type of website. 

urban75 serves up a non-mainstream viewpoint on a wide range of issues including environmental action, rave culture and civil rights, as well as offering essential drug information, rave rants and resources, cartoons, short stories, a popular photo gallery and, of course, "the most useless games on the web" (US Today). 

Mike will talk about urban75.com specifically and activism on the web in general at 9pm. 

hi-res.net ...
lead by Florian and Alessandra first got critical attention for their 'lab' site www.soulbath.com but things really have taken off for them through production of creative and immersive web media projects to partner film and music releases. 

Tight and innovative production values are combined with carefully refined navigation paths of exploration through their web creations. Their site navigation for their film sites compared to your e-commerce click-thru navigation seems like a ghostly emotional trail that the viewer needs to work to pick up. Many viewers and commentators would asses their work favorably alongside top self professed 'net-artists' in terms of expression and depth and they have created outstanding non-commercially tied work such as http://www.shift.jp.org/banner/hires/, but at the same time they have also dealt with informational tied subjects such as http://www.thebeatles.com/getback/treatment/ that whilst remaining immersive and exploratory will gladden the heart of the purest of designers. 

Florian will talk us through a tour of their oeuvre and discuss the hi-res.net approach to creation and production at 10pm. 

elout de kok ...
with his site 'PixelLab' which houses his on-going personal compendium of experiments in visual generation has created an influential reference point for expressive use of the web medium for many users. Harnessing top level programming skills especially in Lingo (Shockwave) and Java, elout single-mindedly pursues his researches inside both 2D and 3D labyrinths of light and movement.

Elout will discuss and answer questions regarding his work at 9.30pm and will also take centre stage in the creation of sound and light experience after midnight. 

TOXI ...
of http://www.toxi.co.uk is a young designer, artist and musician now working in London but originally from East Germany (that was).coming in approach from the hardcore demo scene behind the Iron Curtain, starting at 13 on an Atari 800XL, he retains in his work the virtuosity and improvisation in programming that this implies.

TOXI together with elout and atty will be providing visual and aural stimulation form midnite August 2nd onwards till dawn

the open-digi season is organized in conjunction with the residents of BRADYS, http://www.net-art.ws, OFFLINE http://offline.area3.net and http://www.soundtoys.net

Be part of the Radiotopia acoustic network and contribute sound work as a file, CD, tape, score etc. Mix incoming sounds or playback streams at your radio station, club or Internet café! "Liberté, fraternité, egalité"-carrying on this simple, old principle, we will set up a utopian sound network from September 8-12 -- Radiotopia.
It's open air for your contributions.
Raise your voice, record it, and send the sound file. There are no commercial goals; this is an artistic project commissioned by the 2002 Ars Electronica Festival for art, technology and society, Linz, and co-produced by ORF Kunstradio, program of the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation, Vienna.
A documentary CD, the websites created over the course of the project, as well as your personal work and recordings will remain after the Radiotopia performance is over to document what has transpired.
Radio, the Internet, electricity, as well as music, literature, the fine arts etc. are communication tools meant to be used by the people. Let's do it!

All kinds of sounds are welcome; however, to help create the unique sound-image of Radiotopia-radio as a worldwide medium for communication/exchange/dialogue supporting and amplifying the often-unheard multiplicity of voices-we propose a strong language or vocal element in your contributions. This diverse and regional vocabulary might also include the "voices" of specific landscapes, cityscapes, musical instruments and ecosystems around the world.

Send your sounds/poems/scores etc. (without a restriction on running time) in a prerecorded form via snail mail (on cassettes, CDs, MDs), Internet (live streams, files, images), telephone, and fax, or submit your texts/poems/statements (in all languages) in written form to:

[Shu Lea Cheang's latest project "St(r)eaming the
fields" launches this weekend
July 27-Aug 4, 2002 in New York

For those planning to attend, please contact me to
coordinate shared transportation etc.]

Phase 1: Harvesting Garlic Investing media
July 27-August 4, 2002
Friends of the media and green fields are invited to
harvest the massive 5th-generation garlic crops at
Andes. A day of harvesting brings together a labour
head (mentor) and 2 labours (respondents) in digging
up garlic and updating the current media production.
Infusing old and new ideas, the green encounter with
hands covered in dirt and thoughts floating in the air
is documented as streaming data. The green field is an
open space, we welcome friends to come by and join us
for harvest fiesta. We serve steaming vegetable and
garlic plus fish caught in the nearby streams. The
garlic cloves collected are dried and stored for
on-off-line trading in the following months.

http://www.rich-air.com

St(r)eaming the fields, 2002 -- a field harvesting and
public network project
conceived by Shu Lea Cheang
with "Challenge to the Field" Award from Lyn
Blumenthal Memorial Fund for Independent Media.

Background info:
The green field in Andes, New York will be harvesting
3000 garlic plants by the end of July this summer. The
garlic crops cultivated by organic farmer Tovey
Halleck have gone through generations of growth. Each
year, Tovey harvests the garlic field, sells some and
plants the rest. One plant of garlic can yield up to
10 cloves, each made up of 10 bulbs. Each bulb can be
re-seeded. Over the years, Tovey's garlic has
fertilized the land and multiplied .

Generations of independent media makers have
collectively developed a vibrant media field. As we
speculate on a post-capitalist, post-arts funding,
"after the crash" scenario, "St(r)eaming the fields"
calls for the media field to converge at the green
field for trans-generational recharging affairs.
Borrowing from Argentina's "El club del Trueque" (Club
of Exchange) that advocates parallel economy
reciprocity practices, we hope to realize a media
exchange network using organic garlic as alternative
social currency, the 'credito'. Using garlic credito
to exchange material goods and immaterial digital
bytes, we hope to stimulate media trafficking on the
net and sponsor green marketing on the streets. 

"St(r)eaming the fields" project will be held in 4
phases in year 2002.

Phase 2: Garlic=rich air <http://www.rich-air.com>
September 1-September 30, 2002 --- ongoing
After the crash (of dot com, of market economy, of
twin towers, of public funding), garlic is ordained as
valuable assets for the future generations of
independent media makers. Serving as 'credito' for
global shared network, garlic is traded for airwaves,
for bandwidth, for pixels and bytes. A website is set
up that allows the media makers to join Trueque club
where actual and virtual goods and service are listed
for exchange. Through the trading with garlic credito,
we provide the media field an alternative distribution
outlet, stimulate organic media growth and encourage
mutual ownership of digital commons. Each sign up
media maker in Trueque club is given Ticket Trueque
and 10 virtual garlic as assets, a heatmap, color
schemes profile, traces the trading activities of each
participant. By offering digital bytes for trading and
acquiring other makers' bytes, the garlic credito is
accumulated or decreased. By the end of September, the
virtual garlic credito can be exchanged for edible
garlic when we enter phase 3 of the project.

Phase 3: Trading garlic for wireless
September 27-28-29, 2002
Scattered in the small towns throughout Argentina are
local Trueque clubs, each with its own established
credito for local exchange. Promoting regional
self-sufficiency, the many Trueque clubs provide the
economic alternative to the failed Peso currency in
Argentina. 

In London's East End, DIY wireless rooftop networks -
based on radio links and the 802.11b protocol, are set
up by groups of hackers, artists, activists and
cultural workers. In the Bay area , Bay Area Wireless
User Group (BAWUG) and S.F. wireless; in New York,
NYCwireless, are busy setting up community network
nodes all over the city blocks; Committed to share and
consume bandwidth together, the new global/local
communities based on free/autonomous networks can
possibly bring about social internet revolution. Much
like the vegetable stands set up by country farmers on
the roadsides, wireless nodes at the street corners in
the cities are our 'networking' stands toward building
sustainable organic internet in the 'after the crash'
scenario. 

After the harvest, the garlic is dried and stored for
late September trading and distribution on the streets
of New York City and at the farm stands in Andes. We
will construct a flat truck loaded with garlic and
park at designated street corners with wireless nodes
set up for net access. Temporarily claiming a public
space for garlic congregation, we trade edible garlic
for wireless network. With mobile techonology, we
stream and showcase the harvest documents and trading
activity on the streets. Taking garlic credito one
accumulated through trading on rich-air.com, one
trades the virtual credito for edible garlic. On the
streets, the truckload of garlic can also be traded
with material goods as we invite local community to
join us at this harvest/netivity celebration.

Phase 4: Distribution of garlic credito and seeding
the garlic
October 2-October 6, 2002
Taking the multiplication of garlic cloves as starting
point, we hope to promote garlic credito for media
exchange and seeding garlic for future generations.
During the NAMAC Conference in Seattle (October
2-October 5), we will showcase garlic harvesting
documents and garlic credito at rich-air.com. We will
distribute edible garlic for nationwide and
cross-border seeding in the green fields. On the
weekend of October 5, we will gather again in Andes,
New York. With Tovey Halleck, we seed the remaining
garlic bulb by bulb, clove by clove.

OPEN STUDIOS

Open Studio reception for New Views: World Financial Center - a new
artist-in-residence program co-organized by the Lower Manhattan Cultural
Council and the World Financial Center Arts and Events Program.

Nine New York-based visual artists have been invited to set up studios
in the WFC Courtyard Gallery for five months. While in residence, they

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Mission
In the wake of the World Trade Center disaster, LMCC's role in the
community is more important than ever.  LMCC was founded 30 years ago to
develop the area's cultural life, while creating a fertile and nurturing
environment for arts groups and artists.  LMCC has played a major role
in re-establishing downtown as a healthy, business, residential and
cultural district.  LMCC's mission is to provide support for individual
artists and arts organizations while fostering public participation in
the arts through free events in the performing, visual and media arts.
Now one of Manhattan's oldest and largest arts councils, LMCC is
committed to serving artists and audiences in the financial district and
throughout the diverse neighborhoods and cultural communities of
Manhattan.

LMCC's major Visual and Media Arts Programs include artist residency
programs formerly located in the World Trade Center, Thundergulch, an
initiative for artists working in new technologies, and public art
initiatives. New Views: World Financial Center reflects LMCC's ongoing
commitment to providing unique residency opportunities for artists
within New York City.

The World Financial Center Arts & Events Program
The World Financial Center Arts & Events Program is an innovative series
of free performances, exhibitions, installations and festivals created
to showcase emerging as well as established artists. While most of the
performances take place in the Winter Garden, special summer events take
place on the outdoor Plaza. Exhibitions and installations are housed in
the Courtyard Gallery. All locations are public spaces.

Officially launched in October 1988, the program has featured over 1,500
performances by individual artists and cultural organizations. The
program includes residencies created specifically for the public spaces
at the WFC; previews of works scheduled for New York City's major
cultural venues; exhibitions and installations from major museums; and
festivals celebrating the arts of individual cities and countries. By
fostering all mediums of art, the program aims to draw attention to
cultural institutions locally, nationally, and internationally. Visit

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), 
in association with Monash University presents 

KEN RINALDO and AMY YOUNGS The Ohio State University, USA
Musings on Art, Technology and Artificial Life

6.30pm Wednesday 7 August 2002  
Treasury Theatre, Lower Plaza 
1 Macarthur Street, East Melbourne, Australia 
free admission  

welcome / introduction 
Victoria Lynn 
Director, Creative Development, Australian Centre for the Moving Image 

Amy Youngs 
:: Hypernatural-Tech: an obsessive re-invention of the natural :: 

Youngs creates idealised, technologically-controlled versions of nature that
engage viewers in a visual, tactile and auditory realm.  She will show and
discuss artworks that investigate the paradox of technological invasion and
technological remediation of nature. 

 Ken Rinaldo 
:: Technology Recapitulates Phylogeny: musings on artificial life :: 

Living systems, through adaptive behaviour and evolution, naturally seek
symbiotic relationships with their environment, which is increasingly
technologically mediated.  Rinaldo will discuss and illustrate his
hypothesis that technological systems - such as artificial life and genetic
algorithms - learn and recapitulate the evolved wisdom of living systems,
and how the relationship between biology and technology is therefore
inevitably symbiotic. 

8.15pm 
close 

Amy M. Youngs creates mixed-media interactive sculptures and environments
which reveal her interest in the complex relationship between technology and
our changing concept of nature and self. Her works have been widely
exhibited internationally at art centres and galleries, including the
Circulo de Bellas Artes, Madrid, Spain; the Visual Arts Museum, New York,
USA; and the Art Institute of Chicago's Betty Rymer Gallery, USA.  Her work
has been reviewed and edited in a diverse range of publications, including
Artweek, and she has published essays on genetic art (in Leonardo) and art,
technology and ecology (in Nouvel Objet).  She has taught at the Columbus
College of Art and Design (Ohio) and the Exploratorium (California), and has
been an Artist-in-Residence and visiting artist in numerous institutions,
including California State University and Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. She was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship Grant from the
Ohio Arts Council in 2002.  Youngs is currently an Assistant Professor and
the Director of the Foundations Program in the Department of Art at The Ohio
State University, Columbus Ohio, USA.  < www.cgrg.ohio-state.edu/~ayoungs > 

Ken Rinaldo is a new media artist and theorist who creates interactive
installations that blur the boundaries between the organic and inorganic.
He believes it is imperative that technological systems acknowledge and
model the evolved wisdom of natural living systems, so they will inherently
fuse to permit an interdependent earth. For over two decades Rinaldo has
been working at the intersection of art and biology, including interactive
robotics, biological art, artificial life, interspecies communication, rapid
prototyping and digital imaging.  His works have been commissioned and
widely exhibited internationally at museums, galleries and events, including
Transmediale, Berlin; Ars Electronica, Austria; The Kiasma Museum, Finland;
The Australian Center for Photography, Sydney; Chicago Museum of
Contemporary Art, USA; and the Dutch Electronica Arts Festival, The
Netherlands. His work has been reviewed and edited in a diverse range of
publications and books, including ArtByte NY, Art Press Paris, Leonardo, and
Information Arts by Steve Wilson. He has curated exhibitions specialising in
Art and Technology, and has received several grants and awards, including
first prize for AVIDA 3.0, 2001, an international competition on Artificial
Life.  Rinaldo currently Directs and teaches robotics in the Art and
Technology program at The Ohio State University, Columbus Ohio, USA. <
