The ninth International Symposium on Electronic Art opens in Liverpool on
September 2nd.
Hosted for the first time in the UK, the annual ISEA symposium is acclaimed
for its ability to bring together the international cutting edge of opinion
and opinion-makers concerned with the cultural use of  Information
Technology. Liverpool Art School and the Liverpool Institute for Performing
Arts host the Revolution Symposium.  Together they are forum and laboratory
in which to identify, assert and critique the notions and metaphors of
Revolution - a word that describes both cyclic repetition  and  violent
severence.  Liverpool has assembled an outstanding global group of artists,
academics, inventors and commentators ranging from 1960s electronic
pioneers through to young, unsung iconoclasts impatient of everything.
Together they will challenge and engage with a programme of presentations
integrating papers, dialogues / debates, artist and technologists'
workshops, exchanges and performances.  For constantly up-dated information

Hello, my name is Scott Meadows and I'm a Masters of Visualization
Sciences student at Texas A&M.  I am posting this message in order to make
contact with anyone interested in working on a multi-media/art project
together.  I'm currently in my second year and am trying to develop a
thesis topic which might involve interaction with others via
the internet. My ideas are in their infant stage so this description might
seem rather vague. I'm interested in the experiential qualities of
architecture and studying how these qualities can be expressed using the
computer.  If any of this information sparks your interest or you know of
some good resources for this type of study please let me know.  Thank you
for your time.

new media art, entitled Orbis Fictus, in the Czech Republic in December
1995. The establishment of the Laboratory on the premises of the

activities of the SCCA-Prague in the field of new media art. The activity
of the SCCA is conducted in close cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts
in Prague, National Gallery in Prague and the Goethe Institute.
