I guess we should open a bottle: ISEA Newsletter #50 is a fact! However, 
since we are organizing ISEA96 we have no time for that now. We will open
the bottles after ISEA96...

So far, we have received some 700 proposals. And they keep coming,
even though the deadline has already passed. We will consider
proposals for as long as it's feasible to do so. The proposals for
papers, panels, posters, roundtables, workshops, and tutorials will
be sent to the International Program Committee at the beginning of
March. For other aspects of the symposium, especially the Electronic
Theater, we can still consider proposals after that date.

You could experience your own Long March through the Electronic Art
Events in September: Start in Linz, Austria for Ars Electronica
(September 2-7), then travel west for the European Media Art Festival
in Osnabruck, Germany (September 11-15) and even further west to
Rotterdam, the Netherlands for ISEA96 (September 16- 20) after which
you should stay a little longer, because DEAF, the Dutch Electronic
Art Festival continues for several days and R96 'Media Man' goes on
for another week after ISEA.

Meanwhile, several locations in the Randstad (the agglomorate of cities in 
western Holland) are joining the action. The National Design Institute (host 
of the Doors of Perception) and Montevideo/Time Based Arts, both in 
Amsterdam, as well as the World Wide Video Centre (host of the WWV Festival) 
and several departments of the The Hague College for the Arts (the 
'interfaculty' Image & Sound, the Institute for Sonology and the Royal 
Academy for Fine & Applied Arts), all in The Hague, are cooperating and/or 
planning ISEA96 activities. 

The Hague is only 20 minutes from Rotterdam (by train) and Amsterdam another 
40 minutes. Good thing that Holland is so small.


A fast (but permanently under construction) growing part of the ISEA
web pages is the ISEA Guide of Electronic Arts. Lots of links to
artists, galleries, institutions, festivals etc. Anyone who knows a
site that should be linked, please let us know. (Dirk Boon at

                              CONFERENCES & SYMPOSIA

International Conference, 16-18 April 1996, Bradford, UK

"1995 was the year when the Internet became not just the coolest thing
around, but also the most important - as even Microsoft was moved to
admit in December"...."Netscape's public offering was to be launched at
$14 a share, which was increased to $28, but the price climbed from $45.75
to a peak of $174.  Only Microsoft's December announcements - when Bill Gates
said his company was really, really serious about the Internet - managed to
take it down a peg"  (Jack Schofield, Guardian, OnLine, 28 December 1995).

The British Computer Society Computer Graphics & Displays Group will hold
an international meeting on this theme to take place in the UK, 16-18 April
1996.  There is a lot of current interest in tools and techniques
for generating, exploring and displaying graphics and multimedia via the
network and World Wide Web (WWW).  New approaches for accessing, analyzing,
and collaborating on 3D graphical information over networks are being
developed.  Types of data include real-time, dynamic scientific data, 3D
objects, and virtual environments.  Developments such as VRML and Java allow
greater sophistication in the exploitation of the facilities of the Internet
and are generating a lot of excitement about the future.

Papers have been selected by peer review from those submitted in response
to the Call for Papers.  Countries represented at the Conference include
Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden, UK, and USA.

The National Museum of Photography, Film & Television is close to the
University of Bradford and is a collaborator in the Electronic Imaging
and Media Communications degree courses run by the University.  For

"Memesis - The Future Of Evolution  
September 2 - 7, 1996, Linz, Austria

Prix Ars Electronica 1996 deadline April 30, 1996    
Calling all Friends of Ars Electronica!

This year's Ars Electronica Festival has - among other things - new dates. 
The theme of the 1996 Festival, which runs from 2nd - 7th September in 
Linz, is "Memesis - the Future of Evolution". Symposia, exhibitions, 
concerts, events and a wealth of art projects will illuminate the 
fast-approaching moment in "digital evolution".
"Memesis" is concerned with "interactivity" as a key cultural technique, 
and adresses the question of the evolutionary "fitness" of "memes" - that 
is, the cognitive behavioural patterns which are propagated via 
communication, and which find what amounts to an ideal environment in the 
electronic media.

The 1996 Festival week - which in future will always be in autumn - 
coincides with the opening week of the Ars Electronica Center, which opens 
its doors on 2 September 1996. The Ars Electronica Center is now 
co-organiser together with the Upper Austrian Regional Studio of the ORF- 
(Austrian Broadcasting Corporation) - of the Ars Electronica Festival. Both 
the Ars Electronica Center and the Festival are under new management, with 
artistic responsibility vested in media artist Gerfried Stocker as the new 
Managing Director of the Center. Together with Christine Schopf of the ORF, 
Gerfried Stocker is also responsible for substance and conception of the 
Ars Electronica Festival.

As in previous years, the Prix Ars Electronica, which was first organised 
in 1987 by the Upper Austrian Regional Studio of the ORF, will again be 
one of the pillars of the Festival. In fact in 1996 it is to be accorded 
even greater prominence in the Festival. The Prix Ars Electronica, which 
this year is funded with a total of approx. US$ 122,600, provides a forum 
for both the status quo and future developments in what the Festival 
addresses as "digital evolution".

If you would like to receive entry forms for the international competition 
of computer arts, the Prix Ars Electronica, please contact us under the 
following numbers:

April 4 - 8  1996, Riccione, Italy

Over the past eight years many accomplished digital artists and animators 
from all over the world presented the year's best computer-generated 
animations, images and videos at the Bit.Movie Festival.

Bit.Movie is a showcase for current examples of the use of computer graphics
and computer animation in a broad spectrum of fields, including scientific
and technical research, art and entertainment. Bit.Movie attendees represent
an ever-increasing variety of skills, interests, and backgrounds within the
field of computer graphics.

Along the traditional and most known sections of the contest, like the 
animation section (for animations made on personal computer and played from
the hard disk), the still image section and the video section (for professional
works recorded on videotape), new areas of computer graphics will be 
investigated in this ninth edition of the competition.

Interactive Multimedia, Demo and new cool VRML have been added to stimulate
the new and investigative use of digital mediums in modern art practice,
in scientific and technical research, education and entertainment.

Bit.Movie has free participation and free entrance and not only strives to 
mobilize a large audience, but also offers a unique opportunity for
international debate between artists, critics and audience.

Bit.Movie is not only a competition but also a Conference with presentations,
debates, and audience questions on the present and future of computer graphics

Bit.Movie offers courses and seminars to learn about the latest breaking 
trends, to stay current with fast-moving technology and exploit opportunities
in arts, science, education, interactive systems, 3D worlds, online graphical
societies and networked environments.

  Join us!  Participate in a session which suits your interests and become 
  a part of the eclectic network of people who are providing the Bit.Movie 
  public with the most exciting emotions. On the following pages you will 
  find submissions guidelines and deadline dates.

                                MAILING LIST
To subscribe to the RHIZOME mailing list, just reply to this message with
your e-mail address(es) in the body of your message. You can also send a
new message to subscribe@rhizome.com.

To post to the RHIZOME mailing list, send your message to list@rhizome.com.

Why subscribe?

The RHIZOME mailing list is a forum for the exchange of critical writing,
commentary and opinion about what's going on at the intersection of new
media and contemporary art. Such a debate is crucial if new media art is to
emerge out of its current boom as a significant contribution to the broader
concerns of contemporary art.

You are invited to be outspoken and opinionated in your critique. In Europe
at least, one frequently hears comments like, "I've checked out the
Internet; there's no interesting art going on there." It's true that one
has to open a lot of world wide oysters to find a web pearl. Taking
seriously the potential of new media means raising expectations beyond the
initial gee-whiz enthusiasm over the aura of high technology. Interesting
work *is* starting to emerge, and a lively debate will allow the RHIZOME
list to function as a filter to help sort the pith from the dross.

Of course, you should feel free to write about other new media outside the
internet: VR, Nintendo, CD-ROMs, floppy disks...

At the start, the RHIZOME mailing list will be unmoderated. In order to
keep "noise" to a minimum, please use discretion in deciding when a reply
is best sent directly to the recipient, rather than to the whole list. Part
of the point of the RHIZOME project is to establish what Rop Gonggrijp of
Digital City calls "networks of trust" across the digital landscape.

Pending funding, RHIZOME will develop a world wide web resource for
critical writing and information on new media art. Eventually,
contributions from the mailing list will be selected and edited for
inclusion in a searchable online database.

Feel free to forward this message to people who may be interested in

September 11-15  1996, Osnabrueck, Germany

Call for proposals!

We would like to warmly invite you to send in your  
contributions to the 9th European Media Art Festival, to  
take place in Osnabrurck between 11th and 15th September  

New, experimental and artistically innovative productions  
from the world of film, video, performance, installation,  
multimedia and Internet will be presented and placed in  

Film & Video

A joint competition programme for Osnabrueck and Lucern.

As an absolute novum in the international film landscape,  
the European Media Art Festival, Osnabrueck and the  
International Film, Video and Multimedia Festival, VIPER  
jointly organize the most important European competition for  
visually innovative film and video productions.

In this way, both festivals use their contacts and their  
many years of experience in order to target new impulses and  
generate increased attention for experimental film and video  

This offers authors the advantage of being able to send in  
their films or tapes to both the EMAF and VIPER with just  
one registration.
At the EMAF, the jury of German film journalists will  
present the German prize for the best German experimental
film or video production. Additionally, the presentation of
a new award for an international production planned.
Specific details can be found in our next info-sheet.

The international jury in Lucern will present a prize to the  
value of 5000 Swiss Francs for the best film and video work.

In conjunction with the joint competition programme,  
retrospective portraits and portraits of artists will  
complement the programme. In addition, performances, live  
events, Internet projects and the exhibition featuring  
computer and video installations will enhance and strengthen  
European Media Art Festivals very distinct profile.


Internet and Multimedia are terms which have personified the  
media discussion over the last few years. The EMAF offers a  
forum for the presentation and discussion of artistic  
projects within the network system and beyond commercial  
structures. The emphasis in the choice of work will, simular  
to the the COMMENIUS project by Ponton Media Lab, Hannover,  
Germany and the advanced TECHNOSPHERE project from London  
presented during the festival 1995, target the immediate  
participation of the contributors and encourage a direct  
discussion regarding contents and structures which goes far  
beyond the simple, |show me your homepage|approach.

EXHIBITION: 11th - 29th Sept 1996

As in previous years, the Dominican Church is the central  
venue for the Electronic Cafe and the exhibition presenting  
the festival's video and computer installations. This  
exceptional building provides the spatial element for  
realising artistic concepts in an intensity of communication  
between sculptural elements, projections and networked  


For some years now, an integral component of the EMAF has  
been the Student Forum, where those studying at the various  
European academic centres for media are given the  
oppurtunity to display their current productions. This forum  
has workshop character. However - or perhaps for this very  
reason and on the basis of experience, it presents a  
particularly lively programme and this year visitors to the  
festival will be presented with a distinctive programme of  
film and video works from international students, including  
a large exhibition of installations as staged in 1995.


Artistic work integrating new forms of media is one of the  
most interesting and topical in the realm of the fine arts  
and visual creation. The EMAF - which has always been a  
podium for discourse and creative argument - would like to  
receive contributions in the form of thoughts, points of  
view, essays and discussion concerning the state of media  
art, its topoi and perspectives. Selected contributions will  
be published in the festival catalogue

The works for the joint competition and proposals for all  
other sections have to reach the EMAF in Osnabrueck no later  
than 18th of May 1996.
