Member RSS: 300 more feeds!

(0)

Francis Hwang:

I just turned on our Member RSS feeds. Starting today, Rhizome Members have the option of publishing their Rhizome activity via RSS. This includes artworks and texts added to Rhizome within the past year.

These feeds can be found from a member page. Here's the member page of
Minneapolis-based artist Abinadi Meza:

http://rhizome.org/member.rhiz?user_id=1036863

Note the line that says "Member RSS feed" and points you to this:

http://rhizome.org/syndicate/member/1036863.rss

... which you could then enter into your RSS reader/aggregator/reBlog
tool and do whatever with.

Every Member has the option of having a syndication feed, though they can also opt out by choosing to be anonymous on their preferences page.

This feature adds more than 300 feeds to our mix of syndication feeds. (300 is a lot less than our membership, but that's the number of Members who have posted art or text in the past year and have elected to be anonymous.)

Let me know your thoughts, whether this is useful, how it could be made more useful, etc.

And don't forget, if you feel like making a Member contribution, go to http://rhizome.org/support/ .

The Upgrade! Boston: Barbara Lattanzi

Jo-Anne Green:
The Upgrade! Boston: Barbara Lattanzi
http://turbulence.org/upgrade/index.html
WHEN: July 26, 2005 @ 7:00 pm
WHERE: Art Interactive, 130 Bishop Allen Drive, at the corner of
Prospect Street, Cambridge

The term "participation" provides a point-of-reference for experimental
software art by Barbara Lattanzi. Such projects as Lattanzi's net-based
"CSPAN Karaoke" emphasize the improvisational and cooperative dimension
of Participation as critical (or ironic) re-figuring of the
human-computer interface. Software such as "The Interrupting Annotator"
derive partly from late-1980s/early-1990s models of media activism,
public access tv, and other versions of community communications. Some
of Lattanzi's projects, such as "EG Serene", involve small-scale,
cine-software applications for video improvisation, that "open source"
key works from the 1970s era of structuralist, experimental filmmaking.

History of Networked Art conference

History of Network Art


In the networked art the artwork 's boundaries dissolve in the intertwined relationships between subjects, objects, strategies and theories. This process not only modifies artistic, political and commercial models, but it transforms the culture, the languages and the logic behind the theories of the interconnected society. Inter-disciplinarity, indetermination, transformation, decentralization and interaction, are among the key concepts of the sixties. But they are also the background of the artists that have used the telematic networks to plan new worlds or to critique the existing ones. The conference 'History of the Net Arts' has the purpose to gather some important experiences about some of the most active subjects, their actions and external collaboration with institutions, groups and movements, the technologies they used and, even more importantly, their theorical, social and cultural goals.

Forbes Best of Art Blogging

(0)

caryn:

Today Forbes Magazone Online released its Summer 2005 Best of the Web edition featuring ten favorites in categories such as Small Business, Heath and Fitness, Music, Auto, Video Blogging and, to my delight, Art. With the absence of any entertainment style blogs, it's refreshing that an Art Blog section came through. Yes, abLA is mentioned alongside blog friends Modern Art Notes and From the Floor. I am not going to get into the sites overlooked and why they should be included. Lists always miss something. (I will point out that Artforum Diary, though online, is not a blog and that one site from a person I adore hasn't been updated in over a year) or some of the factual inaccuracies. What is important is the highlighting of art blogs biggest achievement:

Perhaps most importantly, blogs revive the fine art of discussing ideas--an antidote to one-sided, jargon-filled critics' pronouncements.

Don't get me wrong, I like jargon but I like the kick-in-the-pants blogs give jargon more. I mean here we are right now, at the best part of blogs - interacting with the media. What a cycle.
