Towards a Recombinant Reality

That reality is ambiguous and a byproduct of retinal overload suggests 
an estrangement which artists strive to reconcile.

A recombinant reality is reality processed, meditated, elucidated and 
transcended, one which is beyond the real yet possesses substance. It is 
an ontological one that beckons the anonymous, an aesthetic one whose 
resonance is the utterance of discord, and a logical one therein 
syllogists find no dwelling.

It is truer than that which is real.

It seeks to reveal, to disclose, to clarify what the real hides from us 
and bewilders us with. It tells a story of sorrow, narrates a tale of 
mischief, unfolds a drama of passion and dictates a passage of wisdom. 
It attempts to explain humanity.

The extension of reality with a binary pulse, the digital reality, has 
ushered in a new fascination with packets, protocols, and bitmapping of 
invisible sphere, the new constituents of the reality. The technological 
sublime overwhelms and consumes, inspires and subdues. It is a 
dazzlingly blinding force run amok.

Yet, it is a reality that longs for reconciliation, to fill with its 
hollowness the flesh of life, for the virtual cannot sustain itself 
without the real, and the real can only be made sense of when recombinant.

Let us therefore sojourn into the nether and yonder land of that 
recombinant reality. Let us not be a captive of the binary, but let 
humanity prevail.

Working with network technologies, artists in this exhibition seek to 
come to terms with that reality. They manifest diverse visual and 
perceptual undertakings, from powerful vision of the terrible, as seen 
in Eryk Salvaggio's September 11, to LeCielEstBleu's normality gone 
absurd, from Shu Lea Cheang's meandering across the tangible and the 
imagined where home(less) is homepage(less), from Sawad Brook and Beth 
Stykers' problematic equilibrium to Olia Lialina's murmur of an 
unspeakable melancholy, from Wolfgang Staehle's meditative contemplation 
to Zhang Ga's implicit commentary in a transposed time and space. They 
set forth environments, milieus, images, and language to suggest complex 
structures that engender a psychological impact and leave an emotional

  [sonic]square # 6: Out of the Bedroom=20
  23, 24, 25/10/2002=20

  2 workshops on gaming, open source software and other bedroom politics =
as part of a three day event with concerts, screenings and =
  Kaaitheaterstudio's, o-l-v-van-vaakstraat 81 rue n-d-du-sommeil, =

  One-day workshop with Christoph Kummerer :
  on gameboy engineering and open source software wednesday 23 october=20

  Pocketnoise version 0.0b is audio software especially written for the =
Nintendo Gameboy card with the aim of transforming the young consumer's =
most important entertainment device into a noise machine. Christoph =
Kummerer has put together an absolutely non-intuitive interface that =
will undoubtedly fan the flames of the potential users' curiosity and =
sharply reduce his product's marketing potential. True to his own motto, =
why settle for more?', Kummerer has built a unique 4-Bit sampler using a =
mixture of carefully chosen lo-fi sounds and unpredictable software =
bugs'. In his own words: "This buggy piece of code will never leave the =
alpha stage. Meaning, the User is in a mental state of feeling lost, =
like a confused lab rat, and, at a later stage, may enjoy a world of =
buzzing noises." Pocketnoise version 0.0b promises to be a challenge to =
the user, musician and listener again and again.=20

  During [sonic]square # 6, Christoph Kummerer will be holding a =
workshop dedicated to Pocketnoise version 0.0b. He will explain and =
demonstrate the programme to a small group and give lessons in its use. =
Participants will also get an introduction in other media related open =
source software like 'pure data'. Joining the workshop, which will be =
given in English, doesn't mean participants necessarily need software =
  Maximum number of participants: 15. Registration required.

  Two-day workshop with Anne-Marie Schleiner:
  on game modifications, patches and hacker art
  thursday 24 & friday 25 october=20

  Anne-Marie Schleiner is an artist/cyberanthropologist and lectures at =
the Cadre Institute in San Jose, California. For some time she's been =
concentrating on the culture of the computer game and has a soft spot =
for it. Now that games are linked more and more to on-line data, they =
offer - in contrast to commercial television - a form of entertainment =
in which there is room for a creative contribution by the user. =
According to Schleiner, the time is ripe for critical intervention by =
artists, theoreticians and Lora Croft fans so as to hack the game =
industry. She's set the ball rolling with a series of game mods. Mods =
(short for modifications) are small items of software that supplement =
existing games. These additions are part of the marketing strategy of =
the producers of Quake' and Marathon. You can download the extras, =
subject to payment, via the Internet. On the other hand Schleiner's mods =
are intended to disorganise the game. This means a parasitic plug-in can =
at any given moment replace the macho protagonists of a popular =
shoot-em-up game with lethargic gawks or androgynous animals. This truly =
interactive intervention offers innumerable possibilities for a critical =
view of the traditional conventions of the corporate' computer game. How =
this hacking at the same time forges new paths for game interaction, =
navigation and narration can be seen from the exhibition that Schleiner =
curates on the net: Cracking the Maze: Game Plug-ins and Patches as =
Hacker Art' compiles her patchwork' and that of her colleagues.=20

  During [sonic]square # 6 Anne-Marie Schleiner will be giving a two-day =
workshop on game mods. In a small group she'll sketch the history of the =
'genre' and go more deeply into the aspects of computer game culture and =
Hacker Art. The workshop, given in English, will be both theoretical and =
practical (on the computer) but participants don't necessarily need =
software experience.=20
  Maximum number of participants: 10. Registration required.

Subject:  Sing to Me and Tell Me Your Story

For those of you in Tel Aviv -

'Sing to Me and Tell Me Your Story'
Marc Lafia and Dana Levy
 {AT} Holon Digital Art Lab
Opening Oct 10 through Dec 10th 2002

Singing is often the most heart felt way to communicate emotion and a sense
of being.  Songs come from many varied places and have long and fractured
lineages. In this 4 screen computational video installation, Marc Lafia and
Dana Levy are in search of the traversal of song, rhythm, language and the
movement of people, and through computation aim to tease out underlying
correspondences, forgotten connections, across time and geography. Over 50
people from 35 different countries now living in Tel Aviv, were invited to
sing a song from a place of true and genuine emotion, and then to tell the
story of their sentiment. The songs and statements, in many languages are
interwoven, sampled and remixed, continually shifting context opening up
problematics and complexities of the notions of Œhome¹, Œbeginning¹,
Œbelonging¹, Œadaption¹ and Œbeing¹ - ideas of here and elsewhere and the
traversing of time.

The artists worked with one of Israel¹s foremost composer programmers, Didi
Fire, with whom they have composed and arranged the work in MAX MSP which is
used both as a playback system and interpretive instrument, continually
layering and altering the source material. The work is simultaneously a rich
sampling of varied musical cultures, sounds and stories, while at the same
time, through software, a doubling of this process of dispersal as the
material is continually iterated, reconfigured, stretched, mixed, cut-up,
sampled, layered, sounded and iterated - lines of flights that might
surprise us in unveiling an unconscious or unknowing connectedness of

At the exhibition, one can record their own song and tell their story to be
added to an ever evolving database.

Subject: Urban Drift 9th - 13th October


***Café Moskau, Karl Marx Allee 34, Berlin Mitte, 9th - 13th of October***

The conference intends to reflect both the potential generated by flux -

and at the same time to demonstrate innovative strategies that confront the
negative impact of a globalised, mobilised economy - peripheral, residual
spaces, and how to "reactivate" them.

The State Views the Indian Peoples as "Domestic Enemy":
by Saramago and Sábato

>From the point of view of ethics and human respect, the decision by the
Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation means that the Mexican State
considers the indigenous peoples to be their domestic enemies.

A State which has demonstrated little evidence of national honor in the face
of the degrading demands, political as well as economic, which have come
from outside, a State which has dealt indifferently, when not in complicity
with, the expansion of crime and corruption of all kinds, is now the one
which is using its judicial, and clearly discriminatory, power against the
weakest part of the Mexican Nation.

The Indians of Mexico, who, like all their peers in America, have throughout
History suffered the worst insults and the worst humiliations, have just
received one more contemptuous slap in the face. It has been given to them
by the very ones who have the duty to defend them and to safeguard their
interests and needs: the State of Mexico, the government of Mexico, the
tribunals of Mexico. A dark page has just been written.

When President Fox declared, not very long ago, that he and his government
wanted the Zapatista Army of National Liberation as social and political
interlocutor, there was one of two things at play: either he was unaware of
the meaning of his words, which is unforgivable in a politician with his
degree of responsibility, or he had this card hidden up his sleeve, which is
unforgivable in any self-respecting person.

Now the government will be hiding behind a decision by the Supreme Court
which, by no strange coincidence, will serve its systematic policies of
exclusion of the indigenous communities. History will not forget to note
that President Fox and his government mandated a tremendous judicial error.
Now it is the turn of the Indians of Mexico to speak.

F2F New Media Art from Finland exhibition takes us to the unexplored 
worlds of contemporary art. It combines traditional elements of art with 
the latest solutions of new technologies evoking innovative interaction 
between the artwork and the audience. Within F2F the audience becomes a 
significant part of the artwork.

The featured artists and their works are HAME by Laura Beloff and Maex 
Decker; The Battle over Indifferent Minds by Hanna Haaslahti; mirror++ 
by Juha Huuskonen; SOB by Marita Liulia; Aquarium by Teijo Pellinen; 
hit2Morrow by Kristian Simolin; Need by Tuomo Tammenpää; and Mother, 
Child by Heidi Tikka.

The interactive installations of F2F take you face to face with the 
possibilities of the human - machine dialogue. Many of the works are 
"physical computing" related. In them, the interaction between the 
audience and the work takes place via devices other than the traditional 
mouse and keyboard. Using cutting edge solutions of the new 
technologies, such as custom made computer software and movement 
sensors, the works represent modern Finland, a pioneer country of wired 
and wireless communications.

The F2F Catalogue contains commentaries by North American and Finnish 
scholars and critics. The writers reflect on the challenges and 
potentials of the contemporary information society, and ponder the role 
of new media art in it.

The exhibition has been curated by Marko Tandefelt in collaboration with 
Bryn Jayes; the production was coordinated by Juulia Kauste. The 
exhibition design and visual image is by Finnish designer Ilkka 
Suppanen, the Design Director of Snowcrash Design Group. The F2F 
exhibition has been previously presented in Los Angeles, Washington DC, 
Toronto and Montreal.

The F2F exhibition and tour has been produced and organized by the 
Finnish Foundation for the Visual Arts, New York in partnership with the 
Embassy of Finland, Washington DC. The exhibition in New York has been 
realized in collaboration with the Parsons School of Design and the 
Finnish Consulate General in New York.

F2F has been generously supported by Sonera, Unisys, and William and 
Gloria Jackson. Additional funding has been provided by the Ministry of 
Education in Finland, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Finland, the 
Art Council of Finland, DPS Inc., Apple Finland and AVEK.

Arts at (212) 674-5570 or Clinton Kuopus, Director of Exhibitions at

Subject: Electrofringe 2002

October 2-7
Newcastle, New South Wales

Electrofringe is an annual festival of digital, hybrid, electronic and new 
media arts, now in its fifth year. The festival provides a series of 
workshops for young and emerging new media artists, and critical forums 
examining the state of new media arts, technology, and screen culture, both 
within Australia and globally.

Electrofringe is part of This Is Not Art (TINA) which occurs annually in 
Newcastle, New South Wales. TINA also includes Sound Summit independent 
labels conference, The National Young Writers Festival, The National 
Student Media Conference, The Oceania Indymedia Conference, The New Media: 
Critical Approaches conference, and RadioActive independent radio 
conference. With all of these events occurring concurrently, TINA is 
Australia's largest annual gathering of young media makers, musicians, 
artists, writers, and troublemakers.


Electrofringe's international participants this year include:

V/Vm (Manchester, UK)
James Kirby aka V/Vm has released over 100 records on a vairety of labels 
including releases on his own V/Vm Test Label. Musically every style has 
been touched by the hand of V/Vm and V/Vm operates under the slogan "nobody 
is safe". Releases vary from noise, plunderphonic, bootlegs and more. And 
V/Vm are in no way sponsered by an insipid arts scene.

The Light Surgeons (UK)
A collective of designers, film makers and musicians, best known for their 
pioneering design of projected visual displays at clubs, music tours, 
commercial events & exhibitions. They have been at the cutting edge of 
multi media sound and light installations since the group was formed in 
1995, working across a range of media including digital video, 16mm film, 
photography, print based design, music & spoken narrative. The Surgeons 
have provided creative production and toured internationally with live 
music acts such as the Propellerheads, Cornershop, DJ Food and Unkle and 
have worked with many other ground breaking independent record labels and 
artists. Their experiments in celluloid & digital formats have led to the 
production of promo videos, titles for broadcast, art based installations, 
exhibitions and their own live audio visual performances at international 
film & new media festivals. Patients include Sony, Columbia Tristar, 
Bloomberg, Wall of Sound, Mo Wax, Ninja Tune, Channel 4, BBC and Diesel

Champ Libre / Montréal - City of Waves

Podewil, Klosterstr.68-70, Berlin-Mitte
Mittwoch, 9. Oktober 2002, 20.00 Uhr Eintritt: EUR 5
(in englischer Sprache)

Die Stadt der Wellen - das ist sowohl die Stadt der Radiowellen, als auch
die des Wassers, des Fließens, der Veränderung. Die Künstlerorganisation
Champ Libre organisiert seit 1992 in Montréal Veranstaltungen an der
Schnittstelle zwischen elektronischer Kunst, Architektur und Urbanismus. In
vielem Berlin nicht unähnlich, ist Montréal seit Jahren in einer
Umbruchsituation, in der alte Industriezweige wegbrechen und der
innerstädtische Raum zum Objekt der Begierde neuer Kräfte wird. Das
Festival Cité des Ondes (Sept. 2002) entwirft künstlerische Szenarien für
eine Neudefinition der Stadt und wird an diesem Abend von den Champ Libre
Organisatoren u.a. mit einem Videoprogramm vorgestellt. In Kooperation mit
Urban Drift und der Botschaft von Kanada.

The organisers of the Cite des Ondes festival in Montreal/Canada present
the 'best of' from the most recent edition, which was held in September.
Combining new and artistic approaches to architecture and urbanism with
different forms of media art, Cite des Ondes is one of the most exciting
festivals of contemporary art in Canada.
Organised in cooperation with the Berlin Urban Drift conference (10 - 13
Oct, Cafe Moskau, Berlin-Mitte) and the Canadian Embassy.
