As popular as Digital Media Tree is it may still be underrated. Yesterday Moody posted the Saltz review of Walid Raad/The Atlas Foundation in the format of Donald Judd's reviews in the 60s, brilliantly demonstrating the shift in art criticism today. If you haven't read it, you really should.

Dance Diary

Ying Zhou's Dance Diary utilizes blogging as a tool for soliciting feedback about her dances, especially from people who are far away. "Some of the diary entries are developed into theater work based on the viewer's input. I am living in Seattle and people from China and other countries in Asia are visiting my dance diary. I truly think this kind of reach and interaction with viewers is unique to internet. Living Seattle, I was highly influenced by the local dancer audience, predominantly white and middle class. It is quite limiting. My first work coming out of the dance diary was developed mostly under encouragement by comments from China. Among the entries, a lot of people said they liked the particular one. So I went ahead to develop it into a fuller solo. It now has been shown around Seattle theaters.

I spend a lot of time surfing the dance blogs and online dances. I have to agree with one of the postings on your site that very few of the dances online are created for the internet. I think my project is one of the few that are meant for the internet, meant to explore how technology changes my way of interacting with the viewers through my art."

Invitation to Create and Exhibit Posters

You are invited to create posters through Andy Deck's Imprimatur http://turbulence.org/Works/imprimatur/. All posters created during February, March and April will be displayed at HTTP Gallery and the surrounding public spaces for the next exhibition, 'Open Vice Virtue: the online art context'. Also photographs of posters displayed in public locations will be documented on the HTTP website. So please download, print out and paste up archived posters in your own localities - send your photos to info[at]http.uk.net

"Imprimatur consists of an online 'groupware' for poster illustration and layout accessible through a computer workstation installed in the gallery space. Visitors can use the software to create their own poster in collaboration with their online counterparts. This piece provides a framework for visitors/ participants to launch a personal poster campaign based on their own social and political concerns. This DIY approach revives the tradition of poster-making as a medium of mass communication and persuasion developed during the 20th century. The posters will by displayed as part of the exhibition and will circulate freely beyond the gallery walls, appearing in surrounding streets, schools, libraries, kitchens and bedrooms."

Internet Neutrality

(0)

lessig.jpg

A hugely important topic. Much of what we enjoy about the Internet is hardwired into law. Now telecom providers try to speed up their own services over that of others using (and already paying for) their network. Recently, I was surprised how little debate with the Verizon representative there was when I cancelled my home phone with them. "I am just using my cell phone." They were just fine with that as they also occupy the cell phone market. (Try canceling your American Express credit card: good luck. It will take at least 20 minutes until they take no for an answer.) On C-Span I followed the debate on Internet Neutrality. The proposal was that congress should pass law forbidding discrimination against competing Web services. The CEO of Google and Larry Lessig, among others, gave testimony. If a company like Google introduces video applications- should they (ie. Google) have to pay the ISP for the extra bandwidth that the users of this service use up? The same issue comes up with voice over (ip)telephony. Download Lessig'a testimony here (pdf).
