your thoughts on upcoming online classes

Posted by laurie halsey brown | Mon Jun 24th 2002 1 a.m.

I am teaching online classes which will be a part of rhizome entering into online education. Would you be interested in taking the following classes? What aspects of them are the most/least compelling? vidlounge@aol.com

Why New Media Isn't New: A History
A look at the basics and beginnings of net.art: what is interactivity/what is net.art?, a history of the internet; a history of experimental film and video in relation to net.art, net.art in the mainstream.

Net.art Investigations
A more focused look at specific aspects of net.art such as: identity, authenticity, simultaneity, globalism, hybridity, narrative.

Net.art Theory+Practice
A look at theoretical explorations surrounding technical and aesthetic aspects of net.art such as: the use of flash, web cams, information systems/archiving, design's relationship to society and art, sound.

Net.art Exhibitions
A look at the history of net.art exhibitions including: a history of internet based works in exhibitions, discussions into the form of net.art in relation to exhibition context, texts by and discussions with curators.

Classes are discussion and research based. A topic is contextualized each week; students discuss it and then do research based on it in assignment form. Final projects are encouraged to be net.art works.

    hey laurie,

    i wouldn't take any of these classes. i would guess that not many on
    RAW would. many of the people on this list have been involved with
    this stuff for quite a while and many are probably on the syllabus.
    this will be posted to digest and you'll probably get a better
    response. perhaps rhizome admin can fit it into net art news too. it
    is net art newsworthy imo.

    i'm curious tho, are these classes going to deal with only the
    'official' net.art (cosic, shulgin, jody, lialina, etc). imo, net.art
    is a very specific thing relating to a small group of artists,
    whereas net art (no dot) is the generic phrase most people use to
    describe art made using networks, the web, the internet etc.

    what would i be interested in? technical classes.

    PHP, perl, apache admin, actionscript, 3D modeling and animation,
    Flash, Director and there's probably more. if rhizome could combine
    these classes with discounts on software and/or books that would be
    killer.

    good luck.

    I kind of agree with what TWhid said- none of these classes would be of
    any interest to the people on
    Raw. I would love to see these classes opened up to more traditional
    students who might not know
    anything about net.art and want to be interested, but my guess is that
    the cost is going to restrict that.
    IE, the only people who would take these classes are college students,
    who are a) Poor and b) already
    taking classes. And I assume there is no option for certification from
    these classes? So the only reason
    to take them would be general knowledge. In this case, the knowledge I
    would be looking for is, as
    Mr.Whid said, is in the realm of practical applications, like classes on
    flash, perl, c++ etc. I am not as
    ambitious to expect discounts on software, although I guess it should be
    said that it's a really weird
    move for rhizome to go into teaching in order to make money. Because we
    all know how much money
    art education generates.

    On the classes themselves, I honestly do hope they are succesful,
    because they would take up a slack
    that is gaping, as far as I can tell, in educational institutions across
    the board. But I do hope it is more
    than the usual suspects, more than a "History of Art You Already Know
    About And How It Relates
    to Nam June Paik" type of thing. I'd have to see the syllabus before I
    could comment for sure.

    I always wondered why Rhizome didn't open up a scholarship fund. It
    seems so easy and neccesary. If
    you paint, draw, sing, make sculpture, etc, you can get money for
    college. If you work online, you can't.
    Unless you're Canadian. [I looked it up.]

    Im interested in this concept of official net art v. net art. Are you in
    favour of there being an official net art and an unofficial one, or not
    I cant tell from this post. Or maybe probably you dont care?

    I remember back in 91, I was creating a lot of work that involved strategic
    and political art, that used technology in the streets. Pirate radio, BBS
    systems and all kinds of activist art-antics. Then, it was bulletin boards
    that we all used to communicate through in relation to collecting
    information that one could not access via traditional channels in the UK.
    Some of the names of groups who had BBS's were 'Fastbreeder', run by Matt
    Fuller & others, 'New World Disorder', loads more and the one I was running
    with Heath Bunting 'Cybercafe', I was co-sysop AKA 'myrth' in 92, a name
    that evolved into 'concrete myrth', my street art alias. I was the one who
    used to fill up the file's section with radical text's that were anarchist
    in nature, with all kinds of writings from various new writers from allover
    the world. In fact it was Heath who patiently taught me a lot of computer
    stuff. Which I am very grateful for...

    When the Internet craze kicked into gear, everything suddenly went manic,
    conferences were happening everywhere. I sneaked into a lot of them because
    I did not belong to any grouip or organization at the time. The most noted
    one for personal reasons was the 'next 5 minutes'. Suddenly I started
    meeting new people who had used the networking revolution via the Internet,
    successfully and radically, it all seemed pretty positive. At last I
    thought, people can now meet each other on a level platform without borders
    from whatever background, creed etc (what a chump I was, so innocent).
    People were exchanging ideas, exploring conceptual and digital missions/non
    missions and ideas in relation to finding new ways of using new technologies
    that had recently become so available. Then suddenly, it all changed. The
    movement took on the form of falling into the same trap as feminism did,
    preaching to a type of person, a class of person but leaving behind the very
    people who really needed its support. Those who did not have the comps and
    contacts via the platform that many got at colleges and institutions got
    left behind. Suddenly debates became centralized via insitutionally promoted
    concepts, causing a default of seperation.

    Many people from these academic environments began taking over what was at
    the time a very anarchist affair. They forged strong contacts with each
    other, cyber artists/activists and collecting names of so called radicals
    that mainly existed within institutions. Out of this cultural revolution
    which had much more to do with networking than creativity, appeared the
    'names' that we now know. They know this, without the help of many of these
    international institutions they would not be here now. Some are great, some
    are not so great. But what always got me confused was the hypocrisy of it
    all, listening to these people at conferences questioning various factors of
    limited freedoms whilst they themselves would be, and did become an elite
    through position and circumstance. Whilst I, myself was being snubbed
    because I was not interested in talking the same tribal language.

    I remember talking to Heath, who was very much involved with it all at the
    time. He said 'You know all this is bullshit don't you?' I said 'I'd love to
    have the chance to know'.
    Heath and I are best friends and I have known him for many years from the
    early days before all this net stuff started. We used to do loads of
    projects together and he was the least snotty of them. He seemed to
    understand understood the language used by graduates and what was actually
    going on, and how pretentious a lot of the hype really was. Through him I
    met many met many dudes of whom I would not of met because of my non
    institutional links. We meet every now and talk about all this and politics,
    struggles in the world and how to conceptually create radical projects to
    get around certain issues. These days I am less likely to rant against
    insitutions because I have had to change my argument, for as we all know, it
    is not al black and white.

    I remember arguing with Mark Napier about all this stuff and thinking to
    myself 'he's ok really', why am I arguing with him?

    Due to managing to create a business that has funded many of our projects
    since furtherfield started in 97, plus a few bits of helpful cash from
    sponsors and funders in more recent times. By forming furtherfield with Ruth
    Catlow, we have managed to create a place on the net that reflects our own
    creative ideas on our own terms. Forming an artist collective that deals
    with the issues that I mentioned above, thus being interested in those who
    are different from the maelstrom of accepted digerati. Now we are
    potentially part of the Digerati yet still aware that we are not going to be
    officially accepted, which is ok. We have taught many people IT applications
    in London who in return helped furtherfield. For us collaboration sometimes
    says more than a work of art does, or a clever conceptual net artwork does.
    For us it is the function of things that excites us, what it is doing. We
    have never been interested in people's cv's and whether they belong to an
    institution or not, we consider people's ideas/work on its own terms.

    Things have changed, but I will never forget how snotty a lot of these
    people were towards those who questioned their intentions. Now I work with a
    lot of these people who were then too busy getting known, using 'Internet
    mythologies' and the disguise of collective digital freedoms. Fair enough, I
    suppose but at who's expense? I have always been keen to take culture out of
    the domain of institutions, placing it in the arena of everyday life, thus
    actually trying to communicate rather than getting caught up in knots, using
    concepts that end up in someone's 'side notes' marked 'clever'. Forming
    projects/art for people not 'theorists, artists, intellectuals'.

    What I find very interesting now is that it seems that there is some genuine
    shift, probably because the secret could not be contained forever. A shift
    in respect that there is no one way to create a net art piece, thus freeing
    up control over creativity and who actually creates it. It seems that we are
    all in the same boat all of a sudden, trying to survive as a varied and
    multi-dimensioned collective on mutual terms does seem to be here now. I do
    genuinely feel that it is changing for the better, real liberation is
    talking place.

    I'm sure that someone somewhere will have to codify and organize these ob=

    The net.art shell is good for at least 6 months.

    In 1991 I ran a BBS (bulletin board) called UK ArtNet. It was funded by the
    Arts Council. OK, I got the words the wrong way round, but I claim to be the

    Hi Ivan,

    You can claim it alright, you probaly were. I remember the name as well. I
    used to frequent it myself many times. I don't think I was suggesting to be
    the originator of BBS in the Uk. In fact, I left all the comp 'Wildcat'
    stuff to Heath - I was the one who shoved a ot of the content in, that's my
    best quality really, ideas, research and content. It was the same for radio
    station stuff, always been good at finding content. Was that the Originator
    or the Terminator? :-)

    much respect marc

    that's funny, in 1991 I ran, but it ended up to be a pretty short story.
