                Jetai'97 - New Ways of Communicating

3. The Conference Timetable

1. General Information

The field of modern communication is expanding so rapidly that even
specialists find it hard to keep track of recent developments. Jetai'97 is
being organised in order to bring together the diverse disciplines and
applications, and to investigate the implications of these exciting changes.

Talks and presentations at Jetai'97 will be about technical, medical, 
social, cultural and artistic uses of communication technology. The latest
developments and innovations will be discussed with experts from
professional and academic backgrounds. A comprehensive translation service
into 4 different languages (French, Italian, Spanish and Sign Language)
will be provided.

In addition to conference speeches, a variety of small group workshops
will take place under expert supervision. Jetai'97 is also complemented by
an exhibition where companies and businesses have the opportunity to
display their products and services. It will also feature a display of "40
Years of Computing" organised in conjunction with the Computer Services
and Computing Science departments and the Hunterian Museum. The exhibition
is open to the public free of charge and will run continuously throughout
the conference.

A typical conference day is split into 3 "sessions" which consist of a
number of presentations on a related subject. In order to offer delegates
an interesting programme, a choice of sessions and workshops will be
staged simultaneously.

What: Event in which a microchip (identification transponder tag) will be
implanted in the artist's left arm

Artist: Eduardo Kac (

When: Tuesday, November 11, 1997, at 9:30 PM Sao Paulo time

Where: Casa das Rosas Cultural Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil

On the air: Live on national Brazilian television via TV Cultura, in the
daily program "Metropolis," at 9:30 PM Sao Paulo time (via Intelsat)

Online: Live Webcast (November 11) at

Additional information and permanent site:


"Time Capsule" is a work-experience that lies somewhere between a local
event-installation, a site-specific work in which the site itself is both
the artist's body and a remote database, and a simulcast on TV and the
The object that gives the piece its title is a microchip with a programmed
identification number which is integrated with a coil and a capacitor, all
hermetically sealed in biocompatible glass.  Scanning the implant
generates a low energy radio signal (125 KHz) that energizes the microchip
to transmit its unique and inalterable numerical code, which is shown on
the scanner's 16-character Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).

As we call "memory" the storage units of computers and robots, we
antropomorphize our machines, making them look a little bit more like us.
In the process, we mimic them as well.  Memory today is on a chip.  The
body is traditionally seen as the sacred repository of human-only
memories, acquired as the result of genetic inheritance or personal
Memory chips are found inside computers and robots and not inside the
human body yet.  In "Time Capsule", the presence of the chip (with its
recorded retrievable data) inside the body forces us to consider the
co-presence of internal lived memories and external artificial memories
within us.
External memories become implants in the body, anticipating future
instances in which events of this sort might become common practice and
inquiring about the legitimacy and ethic implications of such procedures
in the digital culture.  Live transmissions on television and on the Web
bring the issue closer to our living rooms.

Eduardo Kac is an artist and writer who works with electronic and photonic
media.  His work has been exhibited widely in the United States, Europe,
and South America.  Kac's works belong to the permanent collections of the
Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Holography in Chicago, and
the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, among others.  He is a
member of the editorial board of the journal Leonardo, published by MIT
Press.  In 1995 he received the prestigious Shearwater Foundation
Holography Award for his body of work in the medium, and in 1996 he
received a grant from the same foundation to compile the first book on the
aesthetic theory of holography (in progress).  His anthology "New Media
Poetry: Poetic Innovation and New Technologies" was published in 1996 as a
special issue of the journal Visible Language, of which he was a guest
editor.  His writings on electronic art have appeared in several books and
journals in many countries, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Finland,
France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Russia, United
Kingdom, and United States.  He is an Assistant Professor of Art and 
Technology at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has received
numerous grants and awards for his work.  Kac works with  multiple media
to create hybrids from the conventional operations of existing
communications systems, engaging participants in situations involving
elements such as light, language, distant places, time zones,
telerobotics,  interspecies interaction, video conferences, biological
elements, and the exchange of digital information.  Often relying on the
indefinite suspension of closure and the intervention of the participant,
his work encourages confrontation of complex issues concerning identity,
agency, responsibility, and the very possibility of communication.

Hundreds of Media Activists took to the streets during the recent Media
and Democracy Congress for a Mogul World Tour.  According to anarchist
member of the Toronto Media Collective Jesse Hirsh, speaking in accord
with Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human
Rights, public retraction of media properties owned by the above
corporations would ensue immediately.

Citizen Vagrom was there to document the historic event.

Vagrom's November issue showcases some of the best articulators of the
growing Media and Democracy movement's raison d'etre, and some are
likening the effort to the beginnings of the war resistance movement, or
to the Civil Rights Movement in the early 50's.

The video includes the words and ideas of such distinguished speakers
as Neil Postman (author/educator), Jeff Cohen (F.A.I.R.), DeeDee Halleck
(Deep Dish TV), Laura Flanders (F.A.I.R.), Robert McChesney (author), Karl
Grossman (anti-nuclear activist), Sut Jhally (Advertising Critic),
Jessica Glass (Paper Tiger TV), and more.

According to the Canadian anarchist Hirsh, the plan at present is to
review the extent of our new public holdings, and to begin the process of
becoming a global media cooperative under democratic leadership.  

Rupert Murdoch, former CEO at NewsCorp, is reported to have been fired
from his post, but can take active part in the new public entity, as can
all other concerned citizens.

This is an initial release from the New York Free Media Alliance
(sponsors/instigators of the March), which says it better than we could

Mogul World Tour march of October 17, 1997, NYC:

According to media historian Bob McChesney, this was the first 
demonstration of its kind in U.S.. history.  May there be many more 
marches on the media moguls, until corporate control of the media and 
our airwaves subsides and there is room for widespread 
commerical-free communication by, for, and about the public.

SEE video grabs of boisterous, pointedly critical, loud, informed, 
fun-loving and intelligent demonstrators;  READ information about each 
stop on the route (in this case it REALLY IS 'edutainment').
Pictured: Media & Democracy Congress participants, MW 
Double-Decker Tour Bus, Bread & Puppet Circus Media Dogs, 
Musicians, media activist people of all ages and colors, interested 
onlookers joining in the march, colorful signs and banners. 

Recommended reading for the media mind & soul.  Don't hesitate to 
look at all of the pages on the site; each stop on the Mogul World Tour 
gets better than the last.  Great work as usual, Michael Eisenmenger!  

We've gotten a bunch of calls to the NYFMA voicemail (212) 969-8636  
with encouraging, positive, and appreciative comments about the march; 
and one woman who was irked that she couldn't speak to a human being 
on our phone number.

Four days later requests are still coming in for the beautiful and 
info-packed flier, created to distribute on the actual route, by Peter
Steve Rendall, Mike Eisenmenger, and Amy Melnick.  (Includes the info 
on each media mogul listed on the site above, minus the action-packed 
video-grabs). For a copy of your own, call 212-969-TOFM.

Initial reports are that at least two people are known to have said that 
they were watching the public access cablecast of the pre-tour with Bob 
McChesney, and that they did indeed turn off their TVs and go to the 
demo.  In another report, FedEx employees in Midtown with a view of us 
in the street from their office above were impressed and energized.  
Contrary to the report in Wired the next day, they apparently  got a clear 
idea of what the 350+ people were there to say.

Anyway, On To The Next!

Contact Paper Tiger TV for a videotape of the Tour, as well as a pre-tour 
video walk-thru with Prof. McChesney at; or check out 
Citizen Vagrom's November videoZine for that cranky perspective...

New at Alt-X:

Digital Studies:  Being In Cyberspace

The most recent addition to our rapidly growing Hyper-X
network installation, the Digital Studies "online exhibition,"
curated by Mark Amerika and Alex Galloway, features some
of the most innovative hypermedia art being coded in the
electrosphere!  The DS group of artists and theorists being
showcased here include Roy Ascott, Shelley Jackson, Vuk
Cosic, Lev Manovich, Knut Mork, Erwin Redl, INTIMA, 
Ricardo Dominguez, Juliet Ann Martin, Tina Laporta, Claire Cann, 
Richard Allalouf, Nino Rodriguez, Melinda Rackham, Jeff Zilm, 
Dr. Hugo, Nari, La Societe Anonyme, Jennifer McCoy, Kevin McCoy 
and Torsten Burns.

Alt-X Audio

Alt-X is now actively streaming both home-grown
and specially-curated audio installations.  The program streams
every Saturday night at 11:00 pm Mountain Standard Time
and, for our overseas listeners, on Sundays at 5:00 am MST.
We will also have an active archive set-up for random listening
of past shows!

Our initial blasts into space will feature Ambient
Fiction from Erik Belgum and Eric Lyon's breakthrough CD
*Retirement Fund*, clips from the Dogma Hum Archives (featuring
Mark Amerika on vocals), Raymond Federman reading from his classic
Pomo novel *Take It Or Leave It*, and all manner of excessive
word-dub from the Alt-X Audio Files.  This new addition to our
endless push-media mayhem is NOT FOR EVERYONE.  But don't take our
word for it -- tune in yourself!

Alt-X Virtual Imprints

Since Alt-X's inception in 1993, our primary mission has been to
challenge both the art and literary publishing establishments by
supporting some of the most iconoclastic voices and visions in
the international art world.  Our new *Virtual Imprints* section
brings to web-readers some of this Century's most subversive
narrative art, including electronic reprints of classic
interventionist writings of the recent past like Ronald
Sukenick's landmark novel OUT and Raymond Federman's
post-holocaust novella VOICE IN THE CLOSET.

V-Imprints also features a backlist of excellent anthologies,
including *The Write Stuff*, our collection of over 50 interviews
with writers, artists and political activists like Leslie Marmon
Silko, William T. Vollmann, Mark Leyner, George Landow, Avital
Ronell, Sadie Plant, Marcos Novak, Bret Easton Ellis, Douglas
Coupland, Kathy Acker, Dennis Cooper, Stephen Wright, Larry
McCaffery, Rikki Ducornet and many others.  For those interested
in sexually-transgressive fiction, our popular *Dirty Desires* 
anthology celebrates our Freedom To Write in cyberspace, while
those of you curious about the still headline-grabbing Avant-Pop
phenomenon will want to open up our *In Memoriam To Postmodernism* 
essay collection featuring work from Michael Joyce, Eurydice, Don
Webb, Curtis White, Lance Olsen, Steve Shaviro, Martin Schecter
and many others.

And as if this were not enough, our *Interzones: Genre-Blending*
anthology features a diversity of un-definable writing styles from
Alt-X correspondents all around the world!
