Wim van der Plas

Since the ISEA headquarters are located in Holland, ISEA has been tried
to get monetary support from a local cultural fund, known as the Prince
Bernhard Fund. However, this organization has maintained that ISEA is
promoting technology  instead of art, so they have refused our request
for office equipment. 

We have written back, explaining how mistaken they were and questioning
why they reached this conclusion after supporting rather generously the
first two ISEA Symposia (both took place in the Netherlands). After a very
long wait, they finally responded. Their letter simply said: "We hold to
our standpoint".

Well, we hold to our standpoint, too.  Our society and our culture are
rapidly becoming more and more influenced by electronic technology.
The culture of the 21st century will be 'electronic culture'. We will
pursue our aim of promoting artistic use of this technology. We think
artists have a role in guiding culture. It would be disastrous, in our
view, if art was not part of the living culture.

We are glad the ISEA members support our work. But we need you to let
us know that you do. Sometimes it can be difficult to continue the fight.

Since 1981, the V2_Organisation has been organising activities in
's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. It started with the presentation of
multimedia art, and up from 1987 focussed on art and technology. In the
last 6 years, V2 has established a lively centre for art and technology in
's-Hertogenbosch with three main sections:

-    Presentation of electronic art. Every year a range of activities
     takes place with the annual festival `Manifestation for the Unstable
     Media' as focal point. Actual themes and topics in the field of art
     and technology are addressed as well. In 1993, the complete program
     was focussed on `the body in relation to our technological society'
     and dealt with the problematised body. For 1994, all programs are
     focussed on `the merging of nature with digital nature'.
-    Production of artworks. In our workshop, artists can develop more
     individual oriented hardware and software for their works. The
     creation of different interfaces will be a focus point for the
     coming years.
-    Distribution of information carriers (magazines, books, cd's,
     audiocassetes, etc.) that can be seen as background information for
     the activities above. Their catalogue contains about 600 items.

From the 1st of May, the V2_Organisation will be housed in Rotterdam.
In September 1994, V2 will open its doors at a truly beautiful location,
in the  Witte de Withstraat, in the heart of the city.

The V2_Organisation hopes to establish an interdisciplinary centre that
will work together with other institutions in Rotterdam such as ISEA, the
Dutch Architectural Institute, the Photo Institute and smaller or-
ganisations such as the NOX architects and individual artists.

The first real cooperation with ISEA will take place in November, 1994.
The V2_Organisation, ISEA, theatre Lantaren/Venster and the design group
for interactive media WDS decided to cooperate in the DEAF festival that
will take in place in November, 1994. The annual international festival of
the V2 Organisation, that would have taken place for the 6th year in 1994,
is fully implemented and will serve as a starting point for the DEAF

festival. The V2_Organisation and ISEA want to cooperate in future 
projects in the field of art and technology.

The changes in perception, thinking, expression and social relationship 
in electronic communication.
"Every work created today is ascribable to a creativity which is by far
more concerned with the structures and designs of communication than its
actual contents." (Fred Forest, 1985)

The first international INTERFACE Symposium  took place in Hamburg in
1990. Artists and scientists -  Ascott, Flusser, Guenther, de Kerckhove,
Kittler, Kriesche, Loeffler, Peitgen, Piene, Weibel and Weizenbaum among
others - discussed and talked about the topic of "Electronic Media and
Artistic Creativity" (compare the documentation INTERFACE. ELECTRONIC
MEDIA AND ARTISTIC CREATIVITY. Editor Klaus Peter Dencker on behalf of
the Kulturbehoerde Hamburg. Hans-Bredow-Institut, Hamburg 1992).

After INTERFACE 2 "World Images, Image Worlds. Computer-Aided Visions" 
in 1993, with Emrich, v. Foerster, Illich, Nadin, Nees, Roetzer, Shaw 
and Zielinski among others (the documentation will be published in the
fall of 1994), we intend to hold the third INTERFACE in Hamburg from
November 1 to 3, 1995.

Once again, artists and scientists are called upon to present ideas,
theories, and projects which deal with the possible changes in perception,
thinking, expression, and social relationships that are caused by
electronic communication systems, and this time with respect to the topic
of "NetWorld".

Does networked digital thinking take the place of linear thinking?
Does the digital universe replace the "Gutenberg-Galaxy" - the book?
Will new internationally valid code systems put an end to the confusion 
of tongues?
Do we now need new definitions of communication and dialogicity which
are based upon the changed interpretations of time and place and the
new man-machine-man relationships?
Which consequences for artistic work could result from new communication


Open, closed, integrated, intelligent, interactive, simulative systems
of communication, information, documentation, and publication; multimedia,
navigation, participation; neural networks.

Terms, performance, and functions of traditional communication models;
outlines, drafting conditions, current approaches, and visions of possible
future models.


Techno-aesthetics of communication, network culture, network mentality;
historical "Salon" conversation theories, publicity vs. "officiosity" and
"dialogicity"; social and technological rhetorics.

Voice-controlled, tactile, sensory network interfaces;
man-machine and man-machine-man relationships via networks.

Deprivation, isolation, and other communication problems caused by 
networks; new dependencies and the dictatorship of security concepts;
"Viruses", "Trojan Horses", and "Logical Bombs" as works of art.

Institutes, initiatives, and project groups, artists and scientists
interested in actively participating in INTERFACE 3 are invited to submit
a written outline of their ideas and projects to the
KULTURBEHOERDE HAMBURG, re: INTERFACE, c/o Prof. Dr. Klaus Peter Dencker,
Hamburger Strasse 45, 22033 Hamburg, Germany.

The deadline is April 30, 1994.

Composition, Perception and Performance, Ghent, 20-22 october, 1994

The International Colloquium, celebrating the 30th anniversary of IPEM, 
(Institute for Psychoacoustics and Electronic Music) aims to give a state 
of the art in new music and new research about music. This includes
aspects of instrumental and electronic music, computer interactive and
multi-media systems, music related digital signal processing, perception, 
cognition, and history. Advanced tutorials will be presented by the
following invited speakers (also members of the scientific committee):

A. Camurri (University of Genova, Genova, Italy),
P. Berg (Royal Conservatory, The Hague, The Netherlands)
R. Dannenberg (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburg, USA)
R. Rowe (New York University, New York, USA)
T. Ungvary (Institute for Electronic and Experimental Music, Vienna,

IPEM has played a central role in the development of contemporary music in
Flanders and Belgium.  During the colloquium, a Festival of New Music is
taking place, reflecting the artistic activity in and around IPEM over a
period of 30 years.

Contributors can apply for one of the following subject categories:
(1) perception and cognition of new music
(2) new technology for composition and performance
(3) multi-media: the integration of music with other art forms
(4) new music at IPEM

We are a group of artists and researchers interested in the use of the
network and multimidia/hypermedia technologies as support for new forms
of artistic expressions. We are setting up a project, called Teleeyes,
to  explore these technologies, looking at them as one might do with a
camera, a sheet of paper, or a projector when seen as a medium through
which one can make art.

Our proposal is: During the first month, we invite people to send us a
short message (two paragraphs maximum), in their language of preference,
with a description of what they see through a "window" of their choice.
Each person is free to decide what his/her "window" is - it could be a
room window, an office window, a car window, a tv screen, a washing
machine glass, a microwave oven viewer, etc...

Each person may send more than one message, and each message may
describe a different "window" than a previous one sent by that person.
After this first phase, depending on the material we receive, there are
several possible developments that we intend to pursue:

 - Build an installation, a big panel with windows, much like a building
facade. In each window, descriptions will scroll slowly over time,
similar to the changes in scenery that occur throughout the day in
"real" windows. The relative locations of windows, and their contents,
will be determined by the contents of the material we receive;

 - Establish navigable connections between descriptions - there are many
possible different effects during navigation;

 - Create a network of "live" windows - In the panel described above,
allow text to change as people send in new descriptions;

 - Allow interaction between the spectator and the sender of the text;
 - Create images "evoked" by the descriptions received, to be integrated
into the panel;

As you can see, the possibilities are endless...
If you are interested in participating,

SEND YOUR E-MAIL MESSAGE to netart@inf.puc-rio.br.

You will receive an acknowledgement, and will be kept informed (if you
wish) of the developments.

This initiative is led by

Sandra Kogut - videoartist, works with video,
film and installations since 1984. Currently working in Brazil, France
and Japan. She has won several prizes in Festivals in Europe, USA and
Brazil. Her last work (PARABOLIC PEOPLE) was made out of the
installation of videocabins in 6 different cities where people were
invited to have up to 30 seconds alone with a camera.

Photographers are invited to fantasise on the theme of MAKE BELIEVE for
the South Bank Photo Show 1994, interpreting the theme as widely as
MAKE BELIEVE means much more than fairy tales and legends and can be used
to explore unreality, pretence and the imaginary.
In order to emphasise the strange and fantastic, a new category has been
created this year for Manipulated Images, highlighting the possibilities
for photography opened up by new technologies. The photograph used to be
regarded as an accurate visual record, which the viewer could believe.
Recent developments in technology allow images to be radically altered, so
that photographs can now challenge the idea of visual truth, becoming a
new form of MAKE BELIEVE. Contact South Bank Centre, Royal Festival Hall,

Invitation to Artists to Submit Proposals

     The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland at College Park, in
collaboration with the UMCP Computer Science Department, and the Corcoran
Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, invites artists to make proposals for a
major exhibition during the fall of 1995.  The theme of the exhibition is
"connectivity and media/interface," and will feature work that employs
electronic networks with multiple contributors and sites, and work that
incorporates interactivity and other innovative connections among artist,
artwork, and audience.

     The call for proposals is being distributed internationally.  A
curatorial committee, which will include staff from the Corcoran as well
as the Art Gallery will select work which demonstrates maturity of aes-
thetic intent, a critical understanding of electronic technology and its
impact on culture, and an imaginative exploration of computer applications
in the arts. While the impetus for the exhibition comes from the historic
domain of the visual arts--art that can be experienced visually--we
welcome proposals that incorporate a range of media and modalities
including sound, text, and performance as well as image.  Artworks which
present themselves in traditional "object" form for the wall or floor of
the gallery space will be included as well as the progressively ephemeral
works for video monitor, crt screen, and on-line transmission.  In all
cases, however, the focus will be "connectivity and interface/media."

     Special attention will be given to proposals which include the
capacity to reach off-site audiences via networks.  Projects focussing on
interaction and exchange with schools and/or community groups in the
Maryland and Washington, DC region as well as more distant communities are

               Digital Village Related Programming

     The Digital Village exhibition is part of a larger project (in
collaboration with the Corcoran Gallery of Art) which will include a
number of interdisciplinary events investigating the role of technology in
today's society.  A scholarly symposium, guest lectures, multi-media
performances, seminars, and workshops will provide contexts for students,
artists, scholars, educators, and the general community to engage with the
exciting and often perplexing issues which digital technologies have laid
at our doorstep.

                The Art Gallery Exhibition Space

     The Art Gallery was established at the University of Maryland at
College Park in 1966 and has had an active schedule of exhibitions,
catalogue publication, student involvement and public events throughout
the 28 years of its existence.  The Gallery also houses a permanent
collection consisting primarily of 20th century prints and drawings from
the U.S., Europe, and Japan, traditional African sculpture, and a small
number of paintings and photographs.

     The current 4000 square foot exhibition space was constructed in 1975
specifically as an exhibition space with museum quality environmental and
security controls, lighting, and access.  The Gallery is run by a staff of
four full-time professionals and a number of part-time and student assis-
