- - "Quadrada" is a microwave radar installation which translates body 
movement into music performed by musical robots made by Godfried-Willem Raes.

- - Moniek Darge and Kristof Lauwers present the next episode of their 
collective composition "RobotGarden",.  The electric violin engages in a 
dialog with the complete robot orchestra, in which each automat behaves as 
a fully fledged musician.  This way RobotGarden becomes an interactive work 
where the boundaries between composition and the development of musical 
instruments and interfaces fade.

- - Eva Vandevoorde plays "Baklava", a new composition by Godfried-Willem 
Raes for bass clarinet and the automaton orchestra.

Subject: WTO in Sacramento + Ag Expo

Sacramento is an important destination on the World
Trade Organization's (WTO) pre-Cancun itinerary. The
United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), USAID, and
the US State Department are hosting a summit to which
the Ministers of Trade, Agriculture, and Environment
from 180 nations Have been invited. It will take place
in downtown Sacramento from June 23-25, 2003.

An "Expo On Agricultural Science and Technology" will
run concurrently to showcase transnational
agribusiness and biotechnology corporations and
promote an
industrialized, hunger inducing, agricultural model.
These events are intended to build up to the WTOs
September 2003 meetings in Cancun, Mexico. Agriculture
is the most contentious issue inside the WTO. Neither
the meeting nor the Expo are open to the general
public. "This is not a public event", say EXPO
organizers. A broad coalition of community
organizations from Sacramento and Northern California
are organizing a response to these events.

**Press Release**

THE DANIEL LANGLOIS FOUNDATION AND THE 
GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM LAUNCH THE BOOK PERMANENCE THROUGH CHANGE: THE VARIABLE
MEDIA APPROACH


Montreal, May 7, 2003 - The Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and
Technology and the Guggenheim Museum held a book launch at Ex-Centris today
for PERMANENCE THROUGH CHANGE: THE VARIABLE MEDIA APPROACH. This bilingual
publication was produced as part of a research partnership on variable media
and published under the supervision of Alain Depocas, Director of the
Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation, Jon Ippolito, the
associate curator of media arts at the Guggenheim Museum, and Caitlin Jones,
a Foundation fellow working to preserve variable media at the Guggenheim.
The book contains the proceedings of a conference held at the Guggenheim in
New York in the spring of 2001 as well as texts by such authors as Bruce
Sterling, Jon Ippolito, John Handhardt, Steve Dietz and Nancy Spector. It
presents viewpoints, methods and case studies concerning the preservation of
artwork created using non-traditional material, tools and technologies.
Among the works explored are Nam June Paik's TV Garden, Meg Webster's Stick
Spiral, Ken Jacobs' Bitemporal Vision: The Sea, Felix Gonzalez-Torres'
Public Opinion, Grahame Weinbren and Roberta Friedman's The Erl King, and
Mark Napier's net.flag.

Those attending the book launch included Jean Gagnon and Alain Depocas for
the Daniel Langlois Foundation and Jon Ippolito and Caitlin Jones for the
Guggenheim. They presented the variable media concept for preserving artwork
created using non-traditional means and also spoke about the Variable Media
Network. Mr. Gagnon emphasized that one of the Foundation's key interests is
research into preserving our digital artistic and cultural heritage, in
other words, artworks commonly produced today via new technological means.
"That's why we wanted a hand in developing a variable media network," Mr.
Gagnon said. "The book marks the first milestone in this project."

A Web site, *www.variablemedia.net*, has been created to inform people
interested in the variable media concept. The site offers the book
Permanence Through Change: The Variable Media Approach in PDF format. Also
available are texts outlining the main aspects of the concept as well as
full transcripts and video excerpts from the 2001 conference. In addition,
video interviews with artists and answers to a questionnaire on variable
media will later be added.

As part of the same research, an experimental database is in the works and
will be available to members of the Variable Media Network. This database
will help preserve and share information taken from a questionnaire that
artists are invited to fill out. Starting this fall, a version of this
database will be offered on the variable media Web site.

*About the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology*

The Daniel Langlois Foundation's purpose is to further artistic and
scientific knowledge by fostering the meeting of art and science in the
field of technologies. The Foundation aims to nurture a critical awareness
of technology's implications for human beings and their natural and cultural
environments and to promote the exploration of aesthetics suited to evolving
human environments. The Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) seeks
to document history, artworks and practices associated with electronic and
digital media arts and to make this information available to researchers in
an innovative manner through data communications.

network of artists from different fields, joining for a
returning sound and vision act. Live d/vj-ing, -streaming,
real and virtual instruments, analog and digital sources
all combine to a gig on demand, featuring a discrete

- - engages in music, literature, performance and electronic
  activities in a complex set of structures and layers for

  an open set that gives space to and access to irregularly 
  joining artists.

  the fly to an interactive piece of time and space set.
- - is residing in a complex database for instant upload on

- - provides the participants very powerful instruments with
  large sound possibilities, e.g. turntables. It thus
  gives the audience the strange feeling that anything

Finding Aids for the Steina and Woody Vasulka Fonds

The Foundation has developed a series of on-line finding aids including a
detailed description of the Steina and Woody Vasulka Fonds, descriptions of
each series within the fonds, and complete lists of the collection's
contents in the form of bibliographic notes. Other finding aids developed
from the indexing done in the CR+D database complement the fonds'
description. These aids help draw up lists of bibliographic notes on solo
shows by Steina and Woody or group events they took part in (exhibitions,
conferences, festivals) as well as lists related to works (videos and
installations) created since 1970 and to instruments and softwares. These
finding aids complement an already existing section, Steina and Woody
Vasulka: Instrumental Video, which features a biographical timeline and
detailed descriptions of a selection of works by the two artists.

Subject: INTER-FACING PERFORMANCE

Workshop 'Inter-Facing Performance'
25 - 30 August 2003
Netherlands Media Art Institute in collaboration with 
Amsterdam- Maastricht Summer University

Contemporary art practice is constantly expanding the use of technology. The
workshop examines the historical and technological developments in
performance arts. The course will be a creative and practical collaboration
between performing and media artists, and will be contextualised by critical
discussions on contemporary practice; wireless networks and performance,
real-time relationships between body and site, maps and architectures,
physicality/usability/haptics - interface.
The workshop will be lead by Kelli Dipple, an internationally known artist
that specialises in performance and the use of new technologies. The
workshop will be placed in a historical and critical perspective through a
number of guest speakers. 

The goal of the workshop is to examine the possibilities for site specific
performance, while making use of wireless and portable communication tools.
The participants will be divided into three groups, collaborating on small
projects throughout the week. Collectively the aim is to create effective
relationships towards the building of a non linear experience within and
around the Montevideo architecture. 

Australian artist and project manager Kelli Dipple, has worked for the past
7 years at the intersection of digital technology and performance practice.
Having trained traditionally in theatre directing and choreography at the
Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane Australia, Kelli has since
developed a detailed knowledge of video conferencing, streaming media, web
and digital video technologies. Specializing in international co-production,
interdisciplinary research, collaborative practice, performance making and
remote/multiple site events. Her practice draws upon a collaborative and
interdisciplinary methodology and maintains an interest in the integration
of visual, interactive, communication and network technologies into live
events for live audiences.
