SMART Project Space | 1e Constantijn Huygensstraat 20, Amsterdam, +31 =
(0)20 427 5951 =20

Tuesday May 13, 20.30 hrs.=20
Smart Project Space presents an evening with sound performances
A monthly series in which the boundaries between music and art will be =
explored. Organized in collaboration with Stichting Mixer



Boca Raton is the ongoing musical project of Martijn Tellinga. Since =
1999, it is moving along the edges of synthesized sound and the =
concrete, acoustic world of sound and it's recordings. The abstraction, =
or rather reflection of these concrete sources through electronic =
synthesis and manipulation, creates an alias in sound which shares the =
associative and narrative character of the everyday soundtrack =
surrounding us. However, it is hardly to be recognised as such; it has a =
new  appearance or identity if you like, but still lives on the same =
fundaments. By using elements of both worlds, it's musical form shows =
the integration and co-existence of natural -unstaged- sound and it's =
artificially created reflection.

More than relying on melody, harmony and rhythm, these sound-works are =
constructed from the fundamental building-blocks of music: texture, =
volume and time-elapse. A composition is made through arranging and =
re-arranging elements, big and small, by using and selecting their =
characteristics. Once recorded or captured, the nature of the sounds =
will hardly be changed;  the musical context determines which elements =
are emphasized or scrambled and therefore, make the music.=20

DUUL_DRV is S. Arden Hill, a minimalist sound maker and painter living =
in the intersecting and isolated climate of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. =
As sound maker his compositions attempt  to fuse the aesthetics and =
method of his painting with the dynamics of sound. By layering sounds =
actualized in digital software with edited field recordings, duul_drv =
creates visual compositions that have been  paralleled to camping, scuba =
diving, long drives on hot days, and watching bubbles floating outside a =
window.  The "dusty and cracked" texture that's
found in these compositions can be attributed to the overwhelming sense =
of location that Winnipeg offers the artist. From an article written for =
The Wire's 'global ear: Winnipeg' - issue 218, Hill offers, Winnipeg =
feels old and run down, more like a prairie town than a  prosperous =
city. The town gives him the impression that we are living through old =
photographs found in flea markets, and objects of nostalgia. This =
aesthetic can be heard in the quiet stretched sounds, the dull hiss of =
the crackling white noise, and the fragments of constructed =
beats.Location: Smart Cinema
Price: 5.50 Euro

Subject: ZKM/Exhibition banquet. Metabolism and Communication



ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe
ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe
2003-05-09


Exhibition opening


b a n q u e t
Metabolism and Communication
May 15 – August 24, 2003

Opening: May 14, 7 p.m.

b a n q u e t  takes human metabolism as the starting point for an
investigation of the metabolism of our social and ecological system. The
potential of globalization and the politics of information, production
and consumption are described as global processes similar to the human
body's metabolic processes. In the exhibition, banquet, a term that has,
since ancient times, been associated with the idea of a forum for
exchange and reflection, highlights the question of the location of food
intake and communication. With the establishment of a fast food culture
and the invasion by television of the domestic sphere, the table as the
location of joint meals and daily conversation is losing its place at
the heart of social life. The artists represented in the exhibition
reflect critically on this very rejection of a centuries-old form of
close-range communication, of the idea of food intake as an act of
social communication in favor of long-range methods of communication,
e.g., via Internet.

b a n q u e t  is a joint project organized by Palau de la Virreina in
Barcelona, Centro Cultural Conde Duque in Madrid and ZKM Kalrsruhe. Each
institution is staging its own independent exhibition, but with a number
of joint projects. In Barcelona the exhibition was shown from January –
March 2003, in Karlsruhe the exhibition will run from May – August 2003,
followed by Madrid (September – November 2003). Subsequently, a joint
catalogue will be issued in English and Spanish.

Artists' Gestures Book Launch featuring live performances and actions by Raphaëlle De Groot, Carl Bouchard & Martin Dufrasne, and Devora Neumark

Artists' Gestures
Project directors: Marie Fraser, Marie-Josée Lafortune

Participating artists: Carl Bouchard + Martin Dufrasne, Rachel Echenberg, Raphaëlle de Groot, Massimo Guerrera, Devora Neumark

The publication accompanies the Artists' Gestures exhibition curated by Marie Fraser and Marie-Josée Lafortune and organized by Optica, a contemporary art center, which was presented in Montreal from October 7th to 14th 2001 in conjunction with the Saison du Québec à New York.

With text by Moukhtar Kocache, Director of Visual and Media Arts of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and interviews with artists in the exhibition, this catalogue furthers a reflection on the nature of gesture, interrogating its mobility, fragility, transience and motion toward the world. From the self to the other, the gesture travels between two spaces, from the private to the social.

Artists' Gestures was originally planned as a series of street actions in various locations in New York City by six Quebec artists initiated by Optica and presented in collaboration with Artists Space and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. In the fall of 2001 the project had to be relocated to Montréal in a few hours notice. The publication focuses on the flexibility of the artists' processes, and critically documents their experiences of adapting their work to new conditions. LMCC is proud to host this launch event in New York featuring actions and performances by Raphaëlle De Groot, Carl Bouchard and Martin Dufrasne, and Devora Neumark as well as commentary by the curators and video footage of the Montreal performances.

Nanomachine: a rythmic semi-autonomous complex machine.
An audiovisual improvisation and performance.
A public fight with a minimal 'Gesamtkunstwerk' in development.
Nanomachine is the continuation of Antoine Schmitt's visual work in the
field of audiovisual performance.

Nanoensemble : a set of little detuned visual and musical automatas, which
evolve endlessly and autonomously. In-between the individual presence of
the objects and sounds, and presence of the ensemble.

Each automata has its own behavior and audiovisual shape; they all interact
and influence each other to create a complex rythmic machine which is easy
to undestand as a whole but at the same time difficult to grasp due to its
complexity. The audio signature of the ensemble is a mix of ambiguous
rythmic sampling loops, a kind of generalisation of Steve Reich's Pendulum
Music. The visual aspect is extremely light and soft. Exemples of such
nanoensembles can be seen on line on http://www.gratin.org/as/nanos/

In the Nanomachine performance, Antoine Schmitt improvises a slow
construction and dis-construction of many nanoensembles. The construction
process is difficult as the machines use to be unstable. As for a musical
improvisation, the whole process is open and visible.

Nanomachine is a new form of VJ/DJ expression based on real time autonomous
programmed systems. The usual pictures and sounds are the audiovisual side
effects of some complex underlying processes.
Sounds are not following visuals, nor the inverse : they are both
originating from the same machine and its many constituting objects.
Causality is slightly untuned and always changing (from object to image or
sound, from an object to its neighbors, from an object to the overall
ensemble) : both sensual perceptions and reasoning of the specatator are
constantly triggered and he is moved between reality and abstraction.
Frank Stella told :  "What you see is what you see". Here the only question
for the spectator is what he is feeling.
Nanomachine is a public fight with a minimal 'Gesamtkunstwerk' in
development. 


:: about Antoine Schmitt

Artist and Programmer, Antoine Schmitt stands at the crossing of
abstraction and dynamic simulation. Since 1995, he has been molding
software algorithms to create audio and visual objects, in the form of
installations, online artworks and performances.
Autonomy and abstraction are his research paths, realtime software
programming is his tool. Antoine Schmitt hunts down the shape of the being
deep inside human nature. Happening underneath langage and meaning,
sensation is at the heart of his artworks.

Nanomachine. 
Een complexe en semi-autonome ritmische machine.
Een geïmproviseerde audiovisuele performance.
Een publieke confrontatie met een minimale Gesamtkunstwerk in wording.

Nanomachine is een audiovisuele performance, een extensie van het beeldend
werk van Antoine Schmitt, waarin hij de creatie van nanoensembles in
publiek improviseert.

Een nanoensemble is een geheel van minimale objecten, elk met een eigen
vorm, geluid en een autonome gedrag, die zijn buren aanzet en beïnvloed.
Die als dusdanig leven geeft aan een ingewikkelde en semi-autonome
ritmische machine, die door zijn complexiteit zowel volledig begrijpbaar
als uiterst desoriënterend is. Het klankteken is een mix van geluidssamples
in ritmische ambigue loops, een soort van een extreme veralgemening van de
Pendulum muziek van Steve Reich, waarbij het visuele aspect zeer abstract
lichtgevend en zacht is.

Voorbeelden van nanoensembles kunnen gezien worden op het web op
http://www.gratin.org/as/nanos/

In nanomachine, improviseert Antoine Schmidtt zulke nanoansembles met een
trage constructie en deconstructie, de één na de ander, door gebruik van
een zelf ontworpen software. De opbouw ervan is vrij delicaat zoals
machines vaak onstabiel worden. Zoals voor een muzikale improvisatie, is
het geheel van het opbouwproces aldus volledig open en leesbaar.

Voorts is nanomachine een nieuwe uitdrukking, in het veld van VJ's/DJ's,
waarin autonome geprogrammeerde systemen in real time als volwaardig medium
naar voren worden geschoven, en waarin tradionele media met beelden en
geluid worden aanzien als manifestaties van processen en onderliggende
krachten. Met nanomachine, is het niet de klank die het beeld volgt noch
het beeld de klank: beide vinden hun oorsprong in dezelfde machine, of
eerder in veelvoudige objecten die het geheel samenstellen. Het feit dat in
nanomachine, de oorzakelijkheid (van het object tot het beeld en geluid,
van een object tot zijn buren, van een object tot het geheel) enigszins
ontregeld en altijd wisselend is, legt expliciet de nadruk op deze
benadering. Continu worden het gevoel en het redeneren van het publiek
gesolliciteerd, en balanceert hun aandacht tussen realiteit en abstractie.
Frank Stella zei: "What you see is what you see", en dit, is wat het
publiek aanvoelt, en niets meer, en die dan vragen stelt. Nanomachine is
een publieke confrontatie met een minimaal Gesamtkunstwerk in wording.

:: over Antoine Schmitt

Kunstenaar en programmeur, Antoine Schmidtt plaatst zich aan de kruising
van abstractie en dynamische simulatie. Sinds 1995 werkt hij met
softwarealgoritmen om audio- en visuele objecten te creëren, onder vorm van
installaties, on-line kunstwerken en performances. Autonomie en abstractie
zijn zijn onderzoekswegen, het real-time programmeren zijn werktuig.
Antoine Schmitt zoekt naar de vorm van het zijn tot het diepst van de
menselijke aard. Naast taal en betekenis, staat het voelen centraal in zijn
kunst.

nanomachine, a laptop performance by Antoine Schmitt (FR)


:: FRançais [ENglish & NL below]

La nanomachine 
Une machine rythmique complexe et semi-autonome.
Une performance audio-visuelle improvisée.
Une lutte publique avec une Gesamtkunstwerk minimale en formation.

La nanomachine est une performance audio-visuelle, extension du travail
plastique d'Antoine Schmitt, dans laquelle il improvise la création
de nanoensembles en public.

Un nanoensemble est un ensemble d'objets minimaux, chacun ayant son
propre forme, son et comportement automone, qui déclenche et
influence celui de ses voisins, donnant ainsi naissance à une machine
rythmique complexe et semi-autonome, à la fois entièrement
appréhendable et complètement désiorientant en raison de sa
complexité. La signature audio est celle d'un mix d'échantillons
sonores en boucles rythmiques ambigües, sorte de généralisation
extrême de Pendulum Music de Steve Reich, l'aspect visuel est
fortement abstrait lumineux et mou. De tels nanoensembles peuvent
être vus sur le web sur http://www.gratin.org/as/nanos/

Dans la nanomachine, Antoine Schmitt improvise une lente construction et
déconstruction de tels nanoensembles, les uns après les autres, en
utilisant un outil logiciel développé par lui-même. La
construction est assez délicate comme les machines deviennent souvent
instables. Comme pour une improvisation musicale, l'ensemble du processus
de construction est ainsi complètement ouvert et lisible.

Par ailleurs, la nanomachine est une nouvelle expression, dans le
champ des VJs/DJs, dans laquelle les systèmes programmés temps réel
autonomes sont mis en avant comme matière à part entière, et dans laquelle
les médias traditionnels comme l'image ou le son sont considérés comme

des manifestations de processus et de forces sous-jascents.
Avec la nanomachine, ce n'est pas le son qui suit l'image ni l'image
qui suit le son: les deux trouvent leur origine dans la même machine,
ou plutôt dans les multiples objets qui composent l'ensemble.
Le fait que, dans la nanomachine, la causalité (de l'objet à l'image et

au son, d'un objet à ses voisins, d'un objet à l'ensemble) soit légèrement
dérèglée et toujours changeante, met explicitement l'accent sur cette
approche. 
Les sens ainsi que le raisonnement du public sont constamment
sollicités, leur attention balançant entre réalité et abstraction.
Frank Stella disait : "What you see is what you see", et ici, c'est
ce que le public ressent, et rien de plus, qui le questionne. La
nanomachine est une lutte publique avec une Gesamtkunstwerk minimale
en formation. 

:: sur Antoine Schmitt
  
Artiste et Programmeur, Antoine Schmitt se place au croisement de
l'abstration et de la simulation dynamique. Depuis 1995, il travaille les
algorithmes logiciels pour créer des objets audio et visuels, sous la forme
d'installations, d'oeuvres en ligne et de performances.
L'autonomie et l'abstration sont ses voies de recherche, la programmation
temps-réel est son outil. Antoine Schmitt traque la forme de l'être au plus
profond de la nature humaine. Infra-langage, la sensation est au coeur de
ses réalisations.

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.

::: A PlaNetwork Conference ::: Networking a Sustainable Future :::

Think of it. We are blessed with technology that would be indescribable to
our forefathers. We have the wherewithal, the know-it-all, to feed
everybody, clothe everybody, give every human on earth a chance [without
damaging the integrity of the planet]" -- R. Buckminster Fuller.

WHEN:  June 6-8, San Francisco, CA.

WHAT:  A rare gathering of innovators from the world of information
technology, environmental advocates, peace and social justice activists,
independent media pioneers, and many others to explore how social networks,
information technologies and the Internet can play a key role in
accelerating positive global change.

WHY:  To investigate, demonstrate, challenge and discuss  how we are using
our technological tools to enact and mobilize the changes needed to promote
a more just, healthy and civil society.

WHO: Among the dozens of speakers and participants, highlights include:

* An evening honoring Douglas Engelbart. Inventor of the mouse, hypertext,
  and windows who has a forty-year track record in predicting, designing, and
  implementing the future of organizational computing
* Hazel Henderson. Worldwide syndicated columnist, advocate for and
  consultant on equitable ecologically and sustainable human development, and
  author of several books, including Creating Alternative Futures: The End of
  conomics, Building a Win-Win World: Life Beyond Global Economics, and

* Joan Blades. Cofounder of MoveOn, the online phenomenon that has moved
  online mobilization and international peace and justice activism to new
  levels in the past year

... And many more (visit http://www.planetwork.net for full listing of

CONTEXT:  Technology has come a long way since the advent of the Internet in
the late 1980s. From email-to-fax action alerts to geographic information
systems (GIS), to the simple speed of email networks, we are now armed with
powerful tools that can be used for moving us into a more sustainable
future. Amid accelerating global crises, new social and technological forces
are converging into a an unique exciting and powerful movement for global
change. The growing sense of empowerment of a global citizenry has been made
possible largely through the use of the Internet.

On February 15th, millions of people world wide spoke out for peace. For the
first time we were able to see our numbers and hear our voice - a richly
diverse and inclusive spectrum of humanity united by a common vision of a
peaceful world, and a just future.

Why stop there?

How might this empowered global citizenry mobilize around other critical
issues effecting our future - natural resource depletion; basic human
rights; economic justice? What are the communications strategies needed to
galvanize around specific issues, to mobilize our networks, envision
alternative solutions, and demand change. How might we use our financial
resources, as a networked global citizenry, to bring about system-wide
transformation?

We have the tools, we have the imagination, and we have the need. It's time
to look at how we are using our information technology tools - to bring
together practitioners from across the sectors of new media, online
community, software development, online activism, independent media
production and progressive entrepreneurship to examine critically - and
collaboratively - where we are, and what is possible. This forum is designed
to enable tool makers and tool users to come together for knowledge sharing,
exchange and collaboration.

Join us. Participate in the second international Planetwork Conference:
expand your networks, forge new models, share resources and help implement
the creative solutions we need to build a peaceful and sustainable future.

Subject: kapelica gallery > terror=decor, a series of panels: Torino-Beirut-New York

TERROR=DECOR
A series of panels: Torino - Beirut - New York

TORINO, Monday, May, 12 2003, 5 pm
Amantes, Via Principe Amedeo 38/a, Torino

TERROR=DECOR is a series of art projects which ZIGA KARIZ started in 
1997. The latest TERROR=DECOR: ART NOW will take place at the 50. Venice 
Biennial as the exhibition in the Slovenian Pavilion from June,13 till 
September, 30 2003. The project questions the aesthetics of the violence 
of armed utopian movements, which, influenced by the art industry, are 
transformed into decorative images that can find its way into every 
surrounding, every single apartment belonging to precisely the same 
structure of power which the radical utopian movements had once criticized.

Topic: we have planned a series of panels in which we are intending to 
confront the different principles of aesthetics which encourage the 
commodification of utopian ideologies. The panel will address such 
issues as the images of violence in mass culture, inherent in genres 
spanning from documentaries to high concept movies, which pave the way 
to ideologies of power and which can be recognized in totalitarianisms 
of the cultural industry/ art market.

Panelists: the participants will include former political radicals, 
political commentators who shape the everyday public opinion and media 
theoreticians reflecting upon the effects of media manipulation.

Participants in Torino: Ziga Kariz, artist, Alberto Franceschini, 
cofounder of Brigatte Rose, Antonio Caronia, media theoretician, Jurij 
Krpan, commissioner of Slovenian Pavilion (A+A Gallery) in 50. Venice 
Biennial, Alessandro Stillo, moderator.
The panel in Torino was prepared in collaboration with art space Amantes 
and Arci, Nuova Asoociazioni Comitato di Torino.

Date: three panels are to be organized before the Venice Biennial. The 
panel in Torino is on May, 12 2003, in Beirut is planned for the second 
half of May and in New York on May, 28 2003.

Issues: the following issues are to be examined:
- - the relationship between the preconceived gaze at a painting as an 
aesthetic surface and gaze of the painting's creator.
- - different forms of presentations of terrorists acts (Brigatte Rosse, 
Hamas, al Qaida), thushighlighting the differences between the archaic 
and modern categories of terrorist utopias
- - the potential application of these images to elite art production
- - the fictional representation of violence in Hollywood films and its 
influence on the attitude towards real violent scenes
- - the questionable effects of the commodification of violence in 
relation to the institutions abusing these effects, including art and 
politics
- - the connection between surveillance which results in greater freedom 
and surveillance which inhibits it: the problem of conscious waiving of 
the rights to privacy
- - the transcripts/reports of the panels will be included in the 
catalogue published before the Venice Biennial

" La interfaz objetual como herramienta de  creación."
Alvaro Rey

¿Qué tiene que ver un teclado con una bicicleta estática?. Este taller
explora las posibilidades de creación de interfaces objetuales mediante el
reciclado y transformación de componentes tradicionales, como el teclado o
el ratón. Estos se adaptarán a objetos de la vida cotidiana dotándoles de
las funciones de control de un ordenador.

Nuestra evolución social y técnica ha provocado la dependencia social de
complejos sistemas técnicos. La evolución histórica de estos sistemas ha
sido posible gracias a la implantación en ellos de nuevos sistemas de
comunicación máquina-máquina, más sencillos y rápidos que los sistemas
humanos. Esta nueva forma de comunicación entre máquinas ha provocado
territorios de comunicación independientes entre las máquinas y el hombre.
El estudio de la interfaz como la frontera que separa estos dos mundos y la
migración de un mundo a otro será la finalidad de este taller.

Las formas que posibiliten una comunicación más natural entre hombre y
máquina, sin tener que educarnos en nuevos sistemas para entender a las
máquinas y que ellas nos entiendan, ocuparán nuestro tiempo. Creemos que la
reutilización de elementos cotidianos, ya asimilados por el hombre, serán
los interfaces del mañana, alejándose de complejos mandos a distancia,
pequeñas pantallas con miles de botones o inmensos manuales de usuario.

Así, el dominio de estas fronteras, la interfaz, posibilita un ámbito
inmensamente extenso para la creación tanto artística como en el campo del
diseño.

La base de este taller es generar los conocimientos técnicos necesarios para
poder crear interfaces, espacios o instalaciones interactivas a partir de
elementos comunes, sin la necesidad de complejos sistemas de programación y
electrónicos. Así, el taller tendrá un enfoque práctico en el que se
producirá un espacio interactivo que reaccione con el espectador, notando su
presencia y generando elementos multimedia hacia el mismo. Nunca será un
programa teórico ya que, salvo escasas excepciones, se intentarán explicar
los temas mediante la práctica.

Asimismo, se explicarán los diferentes sistemas que existen en la actualidad
para generar este tipo de interfaces y se profundizará especialmente en el
sistema más sencillo. Se estudiará la utilización de elementos cotidianos
para generar nuevos sistemas interactivos, como son los sistemas internos
del ordenador: teclados, ratones, lápices ópticos, micrófonos, altavoces,
monitores, impresoras, escáneres, etc. y los sistemas externos: sensores
ultrasonido, infrarrojos, sonido, movimiento, fotosensores, alarmas
domésticas, LEDs, sistemas simples electrónicos, teléfonos móviles, etc.

Press Release

MAKROLAB

During the 50th Venice Biennale Aurora Fonda's activity as Director of the
Cultural Centre of Slovenia continues in its unusual way by offering
an autonomous space of communication and research as well as a habitation
unit capable of supporting the concentrated work of eight persons in
isolation/insulation for up to 120 days. A real laboratory, Makrolab is
equipped to hold artists, scientists and strategic operators of the media
world, who are supplied with instruments and means for a common progressive
independent work that develops wide-ranging research in the field of
telecommunications, climate and migration. The location where the initiative
is based is also unusual: Campalto Island in the Venetian lagoon.

>From the beginning of June through to the end of September, it will be
possible to visit the Makrolab laboratory in full swing, thanks to a ferry
service that goes to the island from the Biennale site of the Giardini. This
service makes it possible for all those interested to take part directly in
the research activities and experiments and, naturally, the results that
emerge.

Makrolab, started in 1994 by Marko Peljhan, and realised for the first time
as part of Documenta X at Kassel in 1997, draws on the collaboration of
people from many different studies and disciplines. It is expected to end in
2007, when the structure will be placed permanently in the Antarctic.  From
then on Makrolab will be managed by a  trans-national foundation. The
project has already been a feature at Venice, in June 1999 at the Querini
Stampalia Foundation and, in February 2001, at the Peggy Guggenheim
Foundation as part of the Guggenheim public project.

In its three themes (telecommunications, migration and climatic systems)
Makrolab has identified a real resource to understand how our planet works
on a social, technological and natural level, and how it develops through
methods and systems of art, where it finds the notion of liberty, and of
science which offer the possibility to progress and reflect.

It should be stressed that Makrolab is a social experiment and is run by the
non-profit association of Slovenian artists Zavod Projekt Atol. The project
is financed by governments, international organisations and societies, and
by individuals. After Venice it will be installed in Israel, South Africa,
Nunavut Territory in Canada, Japan, Russia and finally the Antarctic (2007)
where it will be used as a permanent and independent artistic-scientific
station for research in the areas of primary interest to the project.

Makrolab is equipped with systems which allow the most comfortable working
conditions, despite limitations in space. It has five sections: the working
section, kitchen, storage area, rest area and hygiene area. It draws its
energy from wind and sun and possesses a system of filters to obtain and
recycle drinking water; what's more, it's capable of recycling most of its
waste and has a small hydroponic vegetable garden. In the near future
perma-cultivations will be installed, which should supplement the
nutritional necessities of the team. For extreme conditions the laboratory
also has a system to control the internal atmosphere.

Makrolab operates an equal opportunities policy and is open to anyone. The
present team can be contacted with proposals, suggestions etc., on
makrolab {AT} libero.it The majority of results are available to the public on
the Internet or other research engines.

Makrolab is part of the 50th International Biennale of Art in collaboration
with the Comune di Venezia, Assessorato alle Politiche Sociali, Regione
Veneto, Interreg III Phare CBS Italia/Slovenia, The Slovenian Ministry of
Culture, The City of Ljubljana, Mobitel d.d. Ljubljana, The City of Nova
Gorica and the rx:tx Foundation, and the University of California at Santa
Barbara (UCSB).
