Wim van der Plas

As usual, SIGGRAPH was a madhouse. Thirty five thousand people attended this
year, in the L.A. Convention Center - a new record. The Art Show was small,
with very few interactive installations, and many pictures traditionally
hung, but the quality was high. Interactive installations had their own space
('Interactive Communities/Interactive Entertainment'), but there was not much
that could be called art. A real (artistic) improvement were the Artist &
Designer Sketches - morning sessions in which artists talked about their
work. These sessions were set up by Art Show Chair Ken O'Connell and chaired
by Eduardo Kac.
The most important news at SIGGRAPH was the (almost) completion of Toy Story,
a feature length 3-D computer animated movie, produced by Disney in
cooperation with Pixar. Steve Jobs, giving the key note address, talked about
nothing else, calling it an important milestone, realized in the 100th
anniversary of cinema. Jobs, founder of Apple and NeXt, is now Chairman of

Since ISAST was not represented, this time, it was an ISEA meeting only at
SIGGRAPH, on the 10th of August. Cynthia Rubin and Greg Garvey presented the
very impressive program of ISEA95. As in Helsinki last year, a boat trip has
been arranged, on Sunday September 17 to one of the exhibition venues. Some
very impressive names are on the program, like Douglas Hofstadter ('Goedel,
Esscher, Bach'). An experiment this year is to reserve much more space for
panel discussions this time, instead of papers being read. The
representatives of ISEA96 will monitor this change in order to see whether
this improves the quality of the symposium. This will be the first bi-lingual
ISEA Symposium (French/English) and it already promises to be the best
attended so far. The price of ISEA95 is 400 CAN$ (full registration), $360 
for ISEA members. Student registration without lunches is only $125.
Remember: Canadian $$ are only some .70 US$.

Cees Waal (President) and Anton van Gemert (director of the Art School) of
the Rotterdam Regional College (H.R.& O.) presented their plans for ISEA96.
Although it will be difficult to beat Montreal, the planned cooperation with
the R96 Festival (organized by the City of Rotterdam) and the Dutch
Electronic Art Festival (DEAF), organized by V2, should result in an
impressive event, both large scale and high quality. A preliminary version 
of the Call for Participation was distributed (see our Website).

The ISEA meeting at SIGGRAPH was successful, as always, but the attendance is
about the same every year. The people are never the same of course, but
always a number between 50 and 80. Last year, we distributed some 1000 small
flyers among the people queing up for the Electronic Theater. Additionally we
had a little booth space, courtesy of the Educational Committee, from where
we distributed many more flyers. It did not make any difference. One
conclusion may be that no more than 0.25 percent of the Siggraph 
attendees are interested in electronic art. 

However, this can not be true. The meeting on art last year, was an occasion
for many artists to express their dissatisfaction with the position of art
within the SIGGRAPH events -see the ISEA Newsletter #32- and was attended by
some 2000 people! In any case, that meeting resulted in the founding of the 
SIGGRAPH Art Task Force, later renamed to SIGGRAPH Art & Design Forum. And
all year, there was active discussion via e-mail. The Forum's meeting was
right after the ISEA meeting, in the same room. However, less people turned
up for that meeting than for the ISEA meeting! Perhaps the wave of protest
has died out already?

In the mean time, ISEA is discussing cooperation with SIGGRAPH. SIGGRAPH as a
very large scale technical conference and commercial trade show is probably
not the best environment for an electronic art event. So, both SIGGRAPH and
the ISEA Symposia have their own place. We are looking for ways for SIGGRAPH
to support us and of course, how we can be useful to SIGGRAPH.

The article on Ars Electronica in Newsletter #43 contains an error. The
energy company of Linz, mentioned as a main sponsor, has nothing to do with
Ars Electronica. Thus they are not going to be on the Board of A.E. either. 
The city of Linz will be represented in the Board. 
We are awaiting a short article by Christine Schopf about the changes at Ars
Electronica. We hope to publish it in the next Newsletter.

Wouter Vanden Broeck is looking for people that are interested in 
setting up a Belgian branch of ISEA.

"Interfacing Realities"
21 - 26 November  1995, V2_Organisatie, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

WORLD WIDE WEB SITES - Call for Contributions
During the Dutch Electronic Art Festival, DEAF 95, V2_Organisatie
will be producing a special program for the presentation of
outstanding WWW sites. We are inviting suggestions of such sites
and the submission of URLs for consideration by 15 September.

DEAF95 is an international art event, presenting a wide spectrum of art
productions created by, with or thanks to the use of new technology. This
festival consists of concerts, performances, lectures, demonstrations, and
exhibitions. The central theme of the festival is 'Interfacing Realities'.
Artists and scientists will visualize our changing view on human-machine
DEAF95 will enable the general audience to get to know the achievements and
productions of the electronic arts. DEAF95 will also provide a platform where
artists, researchers, scientists and the audience can meet each other and
exchange ideas. DEAF95 is a festival which will link art (film, video, music,
design, architecture) and science (biology, robotics, physics), presenting a
view on current technological developments in relation to art and society.

DEAF95 is organized by V2_Organisatie, in cooperation with ISEA-NL and
Lantaren/Venster Theatre, all located in Rotterdam. The festival will take
place in several locations in Rotterdam, including the Lantaren/Venster
Theatre, the V2_Building, and the Harbour Simulator.

The last year and a half have shown an explosive growth in the use of
Internet and, more specifically, the World Wide Web. More and more artists
and institutions use the Internet as a platform to launch their projects. The
development of this platform for the arts is the central issue in this part
of the program.

Call for Contributions and Suggestions
We are inviting individuals and institutions to make suggestions of
outstanding WWW sites for presentation during DEAF95. The sites should
explore the characteristics and the potentials of the medium, and they should
present creative and innovative artistic solutions.

All contributions and suggestions will be evaluated. A selection of five
outstanding projects will be on show as part of a special WWW exhibition
during DEAF95, and will be presented during the World Wide Web Day on Sunday,
26 November.

Additionally, we are inviting suggestions of outstanding CD ROM productions,
a selection of which will be presented in a special setup during the

All entries should be submitted by 30 September 1995.

November 7 - 11  1995, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The third Doors of Perception this November has a new approach, a new
theme, and a new format. This letter is to give you a first opportunity to
take part before we publish the programme more widely.

Our new APPROACH is to be pro-active about interactive multi-media and
global networks. The question raised by the first two Doors conferences
basically was, "what is this stuff for?". People from many disciplines and
countries were excited by the question - but we did not receive a
convincing answer ! So this year our aim is to drive the industry's agenda
- not simply respond to it.

Our new THEME therefore is 'Info-Eco'. Doors of Perception 3 will ask: "in
what ways might information technology contribute to environmental

Because large conferences are not very interactive, our new FORMAT centres
on a series of 12 three-day workshops in which 15 professionals from a
variety of disciplines will develop scenarios and a presentation in
response to a set of questions. These workshops will be run in parallel
with four high-level professional seminars. These two strands converge at
an all-day 'Big Event' on 11 November when the results will be presented
for the first time.

We have three aims for Doors of Perception 3:

* develop scenarios for a convergence of 'info' and 'eco'
* make these scenarios visible and therefore capable of being acted upon
* foster projects and collaborations, and stimulate business

We can look after a maximum of 180 workshop participants, so we cannot
guarantee everyone a place. Workshop commissioners will select applications
in the light of each workshop's aims and will therefore look for the best
balance of skills and experience in each group. If you don't want to or
cannot participate in the workshops, we have 300 extra places in the four
seminars from 7 - 10 November and 550 in the 'Big Event' on 11 November. A
brochure with the Final Programme will be published and sent to you in
September. Tickets for the plenary events can be purchased in advance by
returning part of the brochure to us, and will also be sold at the door at

Electronic publication about culture of contemporaneity

The strong development and diffusion of technology, not only about
representation, simulation and communication in everyday life,  leads to a
lot of things to consider. Technological instruments concern themselves with
all aspects of our lives, from communication to didactics, from means of
trasportation to information, from new materials to environment, from
nourishment to entertainment, from medicine to biology, from architecture to
art... The "new nature" outlined is an anthropocentric, cultural habitat that
activates our body in its whole and sometimes  takes the place of the natural

NetMagazine BBS is a publication that concerns itself with the relationships
between culture and technology not only theoretically, by means of essays
from different fields and topics,  but also by pragmatically publishing plans
and artworks.

Instead NetMagazine in WWW is the multimedial and telecomunicative test
laboratory, where information is offered in a richer and more complex way. It
is a periodical publication, regularly updated, and open to the new graphical
interface and communication technologies, and is attentive with respect to
the graphic and the presentation of information.

So there are two different things, originating from the same source, and the
readers will be able to see both of them. All of this in the two editions is,
in many ways, a complete work of discovery. Those who contribute to
NetMagazine make up a part of this experiment in progress.

We will be glad to know your opinion about this, also just as users (we will
respond in the mailbox). Make yourself a part of NetMagazine, because it can
only be done together.  And thanks for now to everybody who will contribute
with essays and advice.

R96 is:
-The 'R' stands for Rotterdam. A festival for the general public, spread over
the city, including the specialized events ISEA96 and DEAF. The 'R-events'
are annual international cultural and art events around the relationship
between art, people and city. R96 questions the influence of  electronic
technology on people.

This Call for Participation invites proposals for all of the above mentioned

The event targets various groups, ranging from specialists to the general
public. The Symposia (ISEA96 and the DEAF symposium) are oriented towards
both scientific and artistic experts in the field. The Workshops & Tutorials
are intended for teachers, students and practicing artists. The Exhibitions,
Concerts and Performances aim at the general cultural public. The Public
Events aim at the general public at large.

The aim of the symposia and the parent organization (also called ISEA) is to
systematically investigate the problems and potentials of electronic art and
to further inter-disciplinary and inter-organizational cooperation. For the
purpose of the symposium, Electronic Art is defined as 'all art forms that
use electronic technology as an essential prerequisite for their production'.
The symposium will be held from Wednesday September 18 to Friday September
20, in the city center of Rotterdam.

Topics include: Computer graphics, computer animation, image processing,
electronic and computer music, video art, interactive installations including
VR, art & robotics, computer poetry and literature, computer aided dance,
integration and synchronization of electronic art forms, research &
development of new electronic media, aesthetics of electronic art, electronic
art & electronic culture, interfaces for artists, etc etc.

Special emphasis will be given to the following Themes:
-Education as a Bridge between Technology and Art.
-Networked Art (see below: 'Digital Territories')
-Design and the Web

welcome. All proposals must be directly related to the above mentioned
topics. Proposals that relate to the above mentioned themes are especially
-Papers can be short (20 minutes) or long (45 minutes). The Papers will be
published in the ISEA96 Proceedings, to be published after the event. A
selection of the best papers will appear in a forthcoming issue of Leonardo,
the Journal of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences & Technology
(ISAST). All Papers must be original, unpublished and in English. Please note
that only an abstract of maximum 500 words is required for the first deadline
(January 1st, 1996). After a pre-selection, the authors will be requested to
send their full materials, including illustrations.
-Panel proposals should contain a description of the proposed panel members.
-Round Tables are discussions that any participant can join (sign-up during
the symposium), so no list of panel mebers is required.
-Poster Sessions are rather informal presentations of research or art
practice, with the aid of audiovisual equipment. They are not meant as
performances but as presentations of interesting examples in order to trigger
-Institutional Presentations are meant to introduce institutes,
organizations, festivals etc in the field of the electronic arts. In
principle, all relevant proposals will be accepted, but it must be noted that
presenters in this category have no free admission to the symposium.

The DEAF Symposium will be held during one day within the time frame of the
ISEA96 symposium and at the same location. It will be on the theme 'Digital
Territories' (see below). Although this symposium is curated, proposals for
free papers will be considered.

Workshops and tutorials will be held on Monday, September 16 and Tuesday,
September 17. Proposals can be for a half day session, a full day session or
two day sessions.
Tutorial proposals should aim at introducing professionals from the art world
to one or more of the fields of electronic art (see above for a list of
Workshop proposals should aim at both local teachers and students in the
field of the electronic arts (including music) and at Symposium participants.
Proposals can cover any field of electronic art. Workshop proposals that aim
at integrating electronic art in more traditional art forms are especially
welcome. Since available equipment at this stage is limited, it is important
to indicate the equipment requirements as completely as possible in the

During the ISEA96 Symposium, probably on Thursday September 19, an evening of
Concerts and Performances will be staged in a 500 seat theater. This evening
is meant for both the Symposium Participants and the general cultural
public.The proposed Concerts & Performances should preferably be no longer
than 20 minutes, although this is not a prerequisite. Proposers should
include their equipment requirements in the proposal. A selection will be
made on the following criteria:
Aesthetic quality, Originality (preference given to premieres) and

Since the 'R96' Festival, of which ISEA96 is a part, aims at the general
public at large -which, by the way, is culturally diverse in Rotterdam- a
special call for proposals is included here. 
Proposals are welcomed for Performances, Concerts and Installations that can
be shown or performed in public spaces and/or in the open air and will
attract the positive attention of  the ordinary passer-by. More information
on the city of Rotterdam is available if desired. 

Two large-scale public events are being planned for which proposals are
invited. They are meant as part of R96 and as ISEA96 Special Events.
1. The Reality of Virtual Reality
During ISEA96 the large harbor simulator of MarineSafety Rotterdam will be
used for an artistic project. The simulator consists of 360 o visuals, 3D
sound and a moving platform (the pilothouse) with two degrees of freedom. The
computersystem consists of 22 SGI Crimsons and a DEC Vax. The idea is to
travel with groups of 10-15 people through an artistic impression of 
Rotterdam in the year 2096. Interactive special effects should make it even
more attractive. We are aiming to make the event accessible via the WWW and
the two way cable system that will be available in Rotterdam.
Artists that think they may be able to contribute (visuals, ideas), can
request an information package.
2. Virtual Community
This is a networked event, that anybody can join into. The idea is to build a
virtual city, where anyone can have his/her own room. Icons in the room
reveal the interests of this particular person. People with compatible
interests will have a possibility to be connected to each other. Incompatible
interests will 
generate other effects. For the public, there are 4 levels of joining this
-By phone and TV, or by phone and teletext
-Via computer and WWW or via two-way cable
-Via special locations in town, with CD-i players and ISDN connections
-Via a central location, with computers.
Artists with experience in this kind of telematic, communal art and a desire
to contribute ideas can request an information package.


Proposals for the exhibition of prints, slides, videotapes, interactive
installations, computer aided sculpture, etc are welcomed for the ISEA96
general exhibition. Also, proposals for complete exhibitions will be
considered. Proposals should clearly describe the contents of the materials
to be submitted, the necessary prerequisites (including hard and software,
audio-visual equipment, necessary assistance, etc) and include audio and/or
visual material (pictures, tapes, etc) to give an 
impression of the work.
All submitters whose work is selected will receive a letter of
acknowledgement including a possible request to use materials for ISEA96
publicity. All participants will be credited properly for their work and the
best of the entries will be shown to the international press during a press

Is the theme of DEAF, the Dutch Electronic Art Festival, curated by the V2
Organization (Rotterdam). DEAF96 will curate an exhibition, performances, a
symposium as part of the ISEA program and other activities that investigate
the electronic network as a platform for the arts.
What strategies do artists develop in these networks? What kind of art is
presented in these networks? How do artists cope with the myths about the
network? How can they reveal the underlying structures of this information
space? How do artists deal with the visualization of the scientific,
mythological, political and cultural information that merges in the network?
What metaphors can represent the time and space structures of the net? How do
we look at the world and ourselves through the net?
This exhibition is intended to discuss the network in all its aspects and
wants to show, give direction to and discuss developments that are unfolding
in the net. People will be able to participate in projects, discussions and
performances that will link people in and outside the net. You can already
have a look at the V2 Webserver: 

A special exhibition, and possibly lectures, will be organized in cooperation
with the Netherlands Design Institute. The theme of this exhibition is the
Design of Websites. We are looking for Websites that are particularly
interesting both from an aesthetic and structural point of view. The selected
Websites will be copied and connected to each other, in order to create an
exhibition on the Web, accessible from anywhere. We are also interested in
Websites that are (the basis of) artistic projects. Before the first deadline
we just require Web addresses (URLs). 

A Film & Video Show will be held during ISEA96. Individuals and institutes
are invited to submit the best and most recent examples of their work in the
fields of computer animation, image processing and video art. Besides
autonomous pieces, the submission of applied work, such as commercials with
aesthetic qualities, is explicitly invited. A selection will be included in
the Electronic Theater program, a broader selection will be shown at the
exhibition site.
All submitters whose work is selected will receive a letter of
acknowledgement including a possible request to use materials for ISEA96
publicity. All participants will be credited properly for their work and the
best of the entries will be shown to the international press during a press

Rotterdam Regional College (Hogeschool Rotterdam & Omstreken, H.R.& O.) is
one of the largest colleges in The Netherlands, with some 13000 students and
1700 staff. In the 19th century, the Academy of Fine Arts and Technical
Science (1851) and the Nautical School (1833) together laid the foundation
for the Rotterdam College. In 1988, seventeen other institutes were added to
them and the Rotterdam Regional College came into being. Four departments
accommodate five sectors of higher education: Technology, Health Care, Social
Welfare, Education and Fine Arts.  The Fine Arts Department is cooperating
closely with the Education and Technical Departments for ISEA96.

The Rotterdam Academy of Art & Design is part of the Department of Art &
Architecture of  the Rotterdam Regional College. It is subsidized and
supervized by the Dutch government in accordance with the Higher Education
and Research Act. It originates from a painters' association set up in 1773,
which in 1851 merged with the Association of Visual Arts and Technical
Science. Former students include Willem de Kooning and other very succesful
Studies in autonomous arts include 2-D and 3-D Design and Mixed Media (which
includes Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, etc) and applied studies include
Illustration, Graphic Design, Audiovisual Design, Fashion Design, Interior
Architecture and Commercial Design. In 1995, the Academy starts Post Graduate
studies in Autonomous Art based on the view that there is 'an undivided
relationship between art, technology and science.' Preparations are taking
place to start an inter-departemental Multi-Media facility at the Academy for
the College at large.

For ISEA96 the H.R.&O. cooperates with:
-Rotterdam Festivals
-the Rotterdam Academy of Music
-Erasmus University Rotterdam 
-Spirit/Rotterdam City Development Corporation
-The Rotterdam Art Council
-the Netherlands Design Institute
-theater Lantaren/Venster
-BSO Medialab
-Philips Interactive Media Systems
-the Virtual Reality Society
-WDS Dutch Dynamic Media Design
-PH Design
