so what does it take?

Posted by Tamiko Thiel | Mon Nov 11th 2002 1 a.m.

Hi Rachel -

So what does it take to get an event in the Rhizome digest?

I sent a notice, included below for your reference, to list@rhizome.org
as per the instructions at the bottom of each digest. It never appeared
in Rhizome, which puzzles me because I expected it to be of interest to
the Rhizome readership for its political, topical and new media content.

What was the reason for rejecting it? Are only specific people allowed
to submit event notices?

The event was last week so the notice is no longer relevant, but I would
like to know what it takes to get a notice into Rhizome for future
reference. Friends of mine have also told me that they have submitted
notices of new media art events which were never included in the digest
either.

To celebrate the acquisition of the Beyond Manzanar virtual reality
installation by the San Jose Museum of Art I am pleased to announce a
panel discussion dealing with infringements of civil rights during the
Japanese American Internment in WW2, the Iranian Hostage Crisis in
1979-'80 and the post 9-11 crisis.

Yours, Tamiko Thiel

The virtual reality artwork "Beyond Manzanar" has recently been acquired
by the San Jose Museum of Art. This presentation celebrates the Museum
opening of installation and with the panelists and artists
-- Tamiko Thiel and Zara Houshmand -- explores historical and legal
raised by the artwork.

This art piece dramatically casts guests in the unwitting roles of
internees inside the Manzanar, California Internment Camp and juxtaposes
this experience against the subsequent mistreatment of Iranian-Americans
during the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979-80. More information at:
http://mission.base.com/manzanar/

Now, following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the
Pentagon, a similar situation exists. The afternoon's presentation will
explore the issues and corollaries of all three situations.

Manzanar" installation before the presentation. (The piece will be on
exhibit for around 6 months. Entry to the museum is free at all times.)

Tamiko Thiel, Japanese American new media artist and engineer
interested in investigating new forms of narrative structure and in
developing socially and culturally meaningful uses of virtual reality.

Zara Houshmand, Iranian American writer, theater director, and
multimedia artist whose work focuses on cross-cultural issues. She was
involved in pioneering the development of virtual reality on the
Internet.

Dave Tatsuno, interned at the Topaz camp in Utah during World War II,
will show scenes from his haunting movie of the camp, "Topaz", which
forms part of the National Registry of films.

Richard Konda, an attorney with The Asian Law Alliance and an active
participant in the Japanese-American redress movement.

Shahin Tabrizi, financial consultant specializing in mergers and
acquisitions; Founder, Treasurer and past President of the Persian
Center.

    Hi Tamiko,

    Seemz like 'BEYOND MANZANAR', is a pretty interesting new media event, plus
    I think the context is important. Even though I would not of been able to
    physically be present at the event, due to my living in the UK - I still
    would of wanted to know about it. So I could visited the web site for
    research and interest. May be they just forgot...too busy sort of thing.
