Peter Luining, a long time NAR contributing writer has launched a new project. Press release follows.
For immediate release

Artist: Peter Luining
Project: Art-Domains
Description: Art-Domains is a project that brings internet domain trade to an art context, thus penetrating the space of the white cube with one of the most lucrative virtual money making businesses, that of selling domainnames. For this particular project Peter Luining did over one year of research and became a domain broker himself. He bought and sold domain names to get the knowledge of how this trade works and also to get the best art related names available. Over the last year Luining aquired domain names like clementgreenberg.com, artcriticism.org, marcelduchamp.info, whitecube.us, etc. The Art-Domains stand Luining will present at Art Frankfurt will connect virtual to real space and the public domain of trade to the artworld. At the moment Luining owns about 200 art related domain names that will be offered for the first time for sale at Art Frankfurt.For his presentation of Art-Domains Luining uses Mel Bochner's "Working Drawings And Other Visible Things On Paper Not Necessarily Meant To Be Viewed As Art." (1966) as a basis. Bochner's presentation used photocopies and contained ephemeri of "non- art" sources, which were put in identical ring binders and displayed on standard white plinths. Whereas Bochner used new materials to display the creative process over it's results, Luining uses Bochner's classical presentation method (use of standard office techniques i.e. laser prints of webpages) to connect virtual selling strategies with the institutional artworld in a low tech manner.

New Geographies Project

laberintos.org, in collaboration with betabelle.org, it summons to artists who are interested in web art, they can participate in the generation of on-line work proposals that reflect, meditate and analyze the problems and definition of new geographies. those new geographies are understood as relations generated from a globalized society (mobility, space, territory, emergent geographies, ubiquity, temporality, frontiers, and connected crowds).

4-1-9, OR YOU CAN‚T VIEW A MASQUERADE BY STANDING IN ONE PLACE is a musical suite and conceptual artwork based on email scams. 4-1-9 is the name for a fund transfer scam or con commonly believed to originate from Nigeria. Each email tells the story of a modern African tragedy in fewer than five hundred words. These letters are actually created around the world. However, they often use names and locations that are particular to Nigeria or other parts of Africa. What idea of Africa do the composers of these letters hope to invoke?

Housed in an ATM machine at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the project explores the structure of tragedy, archetypal African identities on the web, and the notion of scams. At the website, you can listen to songs based on the letters, use our form to create your own 4-1-9 letter, and play the online game, BALANCE.

Turbulence Commission: "Itinerant" by Teri Rueb
Judi Rotenberg Gallery, Boston; April 22 to May 7, 2005
Needs Flash Player, headphones and broadband connection

"Itinerant" is a site-specific sound installation in Boston, Massachusetts. It invites people to take a walk through Boston Common and surrounding neighborhoods to experience an interactive sound work that re-frames Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, the classic tale of conflict between techno scientific hubris and the human spirit. The project engages a search for an elusive character who is doppleganger to both the doctor and the creature. Sounds, 'played' by visitors as they move through the city, create a series of frames within which to reflect upon our highly mobile, technologically saturated society and issues of identity, place, and displacement. Mobile and locational media (GPS) formally underscore themes in the work. The sonic overlay is also presented as an interactive map on the web, creating a formal re-framing and displacement of this site specific work.

"Itinerant" is a 2005 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. (aka Ether-Ore). It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation and the LEF Foundation.

SHORT CIRCUITS / Spring Horror!
Thursday 5th May
Café Ollo, The Media Centre, Huddersfield
Entry £3/2 concs

Sinister! Macabre! Shocking! Terrifying! Tulips may be springing and birds singing in the trees, but Short Circuits has been seized by a dark spirit of horror. This Spring we're showing Monsters, Robert Morgan's funny, unsettling story of a young boy growing up next to Broadmoor Ten Steps, a nerve shredding tale about what happens when the fuses blow and the lights go out, and three strange and wonderful new animations by Yorkshire film maker David Firth. But just so that everyone can sleep at night, we'll end the evening with the totally fantastic, Oscar nominated Two Cars One Night about two ten year olds wait for their parents to come out of the pub.

Short Circuits welcomes submissions from Yorkshire filmmakers.

For more info go to www.shortcircuits.co.uk or contact Andrew Wilson on 01484 301805.

The Record of the Time
Laurie Anderson in Ireland at the IMMA

Next Monday May 2 is your last chance to see this exhibition comprising over 80 works by the acclaimed artist. Although the past few decades Anderson has focused on music and performance, her earlier large-scale works included film, video, and animations.
More info

Did you know that...
Laurie Anderson (with David Bowie) was part of the 2000 juri for the Webby Awards? Here are the winners for that year... Check the net.art category. I wish the SF MOMA maintained these URLs... They should be "sacred"... It was the "people's choice" after all. Here's the corrected link, on the 1999 SFMOMA exhbition of Bill Viola's work: http://www.sfmoma.org/

a de-generative installation

There's still time to catch this exhibition at http:// gallery in London. It's there until 1st May.

"SPIO is a ‘self-surveilled’ system based on a robotic device designed for capturing and processing images from a different perspective. An autonomous vacuum cleaner equipped with high sensibility and infra-red CCTV cameras scans the installation space through pre-defined movements and triggers sound and visual events."

Deadline: June 1, 2005

This is an invitation by the ISEA2006 Symposium and ZeroOne San Jose: A Global Festival of Art on the Edge to groups and individuals to submit proposals for an installation of augmented furniture, audio/video/software installations and interactive artwork for The C4F3 (The Cafe) during the ISEA2006/ZeroOne from August 5-13, 2006. The goal of The C4F3 is to create an active ambient space of augmented everyday objects that is not just an art gallery, a restaurant, or a chill space, but a new kind of project space where the whole environment has been rethought in terms of the capabilities of current technology. This Call for Proposals is an invitation to artists, designers and technologists to propose existing work for exhibition and/or use within the café and new projects that support this goal. The Inter-Society for Electronic Arts (ISEA) is an international non-profit organization fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange among culturally diverse organiza!
tions and individuals working with art, science and emerging technologies. ZeroOne San Jose is a milestone festival to be held biennially that makes accessible the work of the most innovative contemporary artists in the world. In 2006 it will be held in conjunction with the ISEA2006 Symposium.

Submissions will be accepted online ONLY at isea2006.sjsu.edu/
