Tim Jordan : New Space, New Politics

If computer-mediated communication is understood as a space, then the
question 'what are the politics of this space?' becomes appropriate. To
what extent do the categories of 'online' politics reproduce 'offline'
politics; what different approaches to the 'governance' and 'government'
this space exist?
If cyberspace remains as an uncharted territory, these questions remain
diffused. The task of constructing a cartography of cyberspace then
part of understanding the role of cyberspace as an integral part of
contemporary cultural production and curation.

Subject: Announcer New Media Centre Opens at ICA

The Institute of Contemporary Arts in London has opened a new media centre
in partnership with Sun Microsystems. The Centre is a multi-platform
enviroment with a range of ambitions: help artists to develop different
forms of work using digital media, redefine the relationship between
artist and audience, rethink the role and nature of the art institution of
the future in the context of digital spaces, provide access to the ICA
archive of performance and discussion,  and provide artists access to the
latest computer software and hardware, specifically industrial-strength
applications from the medicine, commerce and the military.

The centre is both a set of discreet spaces within the ICA as well as a
fast switched network that connects all the ICA's spaces to each other.
Any space can be used and connected to the rest of the network or to the
internet via T3 link. The centre is equipped with Sun, Apple and Windows
NT machines and a variety of software. There are four servers, including a
media server, webserver, java server and main network server, 12
workstations and a number of other boxes including MPEG encoder, etc. 

There are computers permanently installed within the cafe area of the ICA
to allow access to the ICA archive of audio and video as well to be used
as exhibiting spacesfor artists. 

There is a website with further details of the centre:

a military grade modular setup consisting of four user interface
components: two retro chique workstation monitors and two input modules.
one module using a record player for bulk data input, the other a
interface for seamless deconstruction and recombination of the input
material. all this powered by an hidden personal computer seemingly the
main obstacle in marketing this as the next generation dj working

laptop, and direct-x computer gaming technology, max wolf is installing a
custom-programmed >>electric campfire<< conceived exclusively for the
occasion at bei luxus cont./ convex tv. putting computer science to work
for the sake of aesthetic impression, "disco variegato revised" is an
introverted mood-lighting ambient-piece of visual art complementing
involving systems' music installation by secretly exchanging data bytes
with hundreds and hundreds of little smart spotlights. - fax 069 24 000 330
