Subject: Dislocations

Salt Publishing and Artspace Sydney nettimers to a

BOOK LAUNCH 7pm Tuesday 24 June, for

Dispositions, a new book by McKenzie Wark

to be launched by GEORGE ALEXANDER
author of the award winning Mortal Divide

Artspace, 43 - 51 Cowper Wharf Road Woolloomooloo
7pm Tuesday 24 June

Mark Amerika says “Ken Wark is a language artist
of the first order. His debut novel Dispositions
reads like a philosophictional codework that
samples vocabularies, manipulates meanings, and
mixes discourses.”

Armed only with a notebook and a handheld global
positioning device, McKenzie Wark tracks the
secret passage of free time and free thought
through the spaces of an everyday life lived
increasingly in the shadow of the satellites.
Dispositions records one writer’s experience of
art and everyday life while struggling to be at
home in a world of global commerce and
surveillance. Dispositions proposes a joyous but
pragmatic anarchy of thought and writing as the
antidote to the discipline that states and
markets alike impose on knowledge and culture.

McKenzie Wark is the author of: Virtual
Geography (Indiana University Press); The
Virtual Republic (Allen & Unwin); Celebrities,
Culture and Cyberspace (Pluto Press) and
co-author of Speedfactory (Fremantle Arts
Centre Press). He edits the media culture book
series for Pluto Press. He teaches media and
cultural studies at the New School, in New York.
For nine years he was a columnist for The
Australian newspaper, which made him a ‘lapsed
Marxist in the pay of Rupert Murdoch’. His
writings have also appeared in American Book
Review, Bookforum and  a wide range of other

Leif Codices

"Leif Codices" is a new work for the Internet by Jorn Ebner, featuring
computer-based artist-eBooks and decorative animation for online viewing.
Its hybrid form, comprising off-line and internet-based components,
emphasizes a sculptural quality permeating its overall visual structure; it
is a self-contained composition, that provides connection to the broader
webscape; yet it reflects back to the user who is required to discover the
mechanism underlying the work's components.

"Leif Codices" consists of two sections 'Landscape' and 'Library':
'Landscape' takes the viewer through a sequence of online-animations which
employ fragmented browser display and user activation as their main formal
feature. 'Library', by contrast, is a mere container for a series of artist
eBooks: "Pollen Connection Point", "Border Patrol", "Party Turnstile",
"Conflict Mountain", "O[c|k]tober", "Road Works" and "Equilibrium Panel".
With the exception of "O[c|k]tober" - an online diary of images collected
from daily updated websites and linked to news-sites across the world -
these books are available for download and off-line viewing. Their often
complex structures merge abstract form and literal images in a idiosyncrati=
investigation into possible meanings of landscape, from the personally
obscure to the politically obvious.

The eBooks are both linear and non-linear structures: the user can simply
use the arrow-buttons on the keyboard to browse through the books, or
discover hidden links within the pages to move through them. "Pollen
Connection Point", "Border Patrol", "Party Turnstile" and "Road Works" also
contain sub-books and parallel-books for the user to discover, whereas
"Conflict Mountain" and "Equilibrium Panel" only have one image sequence.
Each work employs pdf technology with javascript to create a new form of
electronic book (or book in general), that can also be printed out as a
picture series. Each, with the exception of "O[c|k]tober", is a self
contained, computer-based work of art.  "O[c|k]tober" displays images in
small individual browser-windows that provide links to the contemporary
world of news information: the main source of literal imagery throughout
"Leif Codices".

The work was made possible through an AHRB Research Fellowship at Newcastle

Technical requirements:
The online structure is best viewed on Internet Explorer 5+ and Netscape 6
(but not 7) and requires a Flash5 Plug-in. It works best with a fast
connection. The eBooks require Acrobat Reader 5+. Some are, for the time
being, Macintosh only.

Jorn Ebner is a London-based artist. He is currently an Arts and Humanities
Research Board funded Research Fellow at Newcastle University. His previous
online projects include "Lee Marvin Toolbox" (awarded the Kunstpreis 2001 o=
Medienforum M=FCnchen) and "Life Measure Contructions" (2000/01), a New Media
Scotland Commission. Group shows include "Discourski" at Galeria Arsenal in
Bialystok, Poland (2002), and "Predator" at kx.kampnagel, Hamburg,

Subject: Empire In Croatia Out

"Empire" has just been published in Croatian translation!

After Micheal Hardt's last year's succesful lectures in Zagreb, organised
by the "Multimedia Institute" from Zagreb (Croatia), Hardt/Negri's book is
now (in a joint edition with the publishing house "Arkzin") finally out in
the Balkans.

This is the first volume in the "past.forward" book-series, which should
by the end of year bring out translations of Agamben, Nancy, Honneth.

The book release will be marked by a series of events throughout the
Yugoslav cities, entitled "Padaj silo i nepravdo" ("Power and injustice
shall tumble") recalling an old Yugoslav partisan song.

of the Walker Art Center's recent termination of its new media initiative -- 
an epilogue to this issue's thread on new media curation.

//the political sphere//
+ G.H. Hovagimyan, Shooter
Hovagimyan discusses his interactive sound installation Shooter, a

computer art
Tiffany Holmes discusses the development of the art project "Mighty Mouse,"
a collaboration with neuroscientist Tolga Uz that fuses addiction research
with multimedia installation work and is meant to foster public dialogue
about issues related to drug use. The essay explores the potential outcomes
of a collaboration between an artist and a scientist and describes the four
principal elements of the project (a multi-channel video installation, a
drawing series, a web art game, and a testimonial-style video).

example, the gray goo syndrome), anti-market science, as well as the fusion
of genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics, Dominguez considers our
nano-fest destiny.

Subject: Welcome to The Play Ethic Network

Welcome to...


A Meeting Place for all Players, Creatives and Innovators


>From PAT KANE, PE founder

"In an information age which values energy, knowledge and optimism, we
need a better productive ethos than the 'work ethic', Puritan or
otherwise. THE PLAY ETHIC is our attempt to start a new argument about
the role of creativity in our lives. What's the most sustaining
relationship between our passions and our technologies? Between our deep
aspirations to meaning and purpose, and the organizations which so often
thwart those aspirations? Between who we are, and what we do? Play,
understood in all its proper complexity, is a penetrating way of
answering these questions."

www.parkbenchtv.org is a terraportal covering the area in and
around Bedford Square in Central London, working with the local
community in the area via free wireless internet access point,
and focusing on our local park bench in Central London,
near Tottenham Court Road.

www.parkbenchtv.org  is a fusion of a localised internet media
channel, local community forum,  free outside wireless internet
access point, and a customisation and restoration of a previously
broken park bench, which now indicates that you are inside a
wireless access area.

The media channel, using The Frequency Clock, running from the site is
open access, and you can upload new material, but it *must* use the local area
or the bench either as location or as content and subject matter. All media
material is localised to our area.

You are welcome to join the forum, come and sit on the bench and
use the access point at any time, or record and upload material to
the channel.
