BIO
Joy Garnett is a painter based in New York. She appropriates news images from the Internet and re-invents them as paintings.

Subject: NCAC Letter in response to the Mayor's Office
To: svetlana@ncac.org

Dear Friends,

As some of you know, I've been working with Svetlana Mintcheva of the
National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) to craft a letter in
response to the regulations under consideration by the Mayor's Office.

I'm sure most of you are also aware that there are a number of
individuals and organizations, (the New York Civil Liberties Union
for one), who are also suggesting appropriate actions. The initial
regulations proposed by the Mayor's Office seem unrealistic, hard to
enforce, and potentially stifling to filmmakers and photographers in
New York, as well as to have serious, negative, first amendment
consequences.

I have attached the letter to this email. You can also download the letter
at:

http://ncac.org/NYCfilmphotorestrictions.pdf

If you agree and would like to sign it, please contact Svetlana
Mintcheva at NCAC.

Please include your name, professional affiliation and city of
residence to be added to the letter. We will send the letter out by
end of this week, July 27, 2007. The deadline for comments by the
Mayor's Office is August 3rd and we want to send the letter to them
before that.

We feel that the more options that the Mayor's office receives, the
better the likelihood they will make a decent decision.

Thanks for your time. & please feel free to circulate the letter.

Sincerely,
Marshall Reese

p.s. sorry about cross-postings.

Open Call to Participate in Perry Bard's Global Remake of Vertov's "Man With A Movie Camera"


today on newsgrist:
http://newsgrist.typepad.com/underbelly/2007/07/perry-bards-glo.html

New York artist Perry Bard has a new project that requires participants!

via MWAMC website:
http://dziga.perrybard.net/

Dziga Vertov's 1929 film Man With A Movie Camera records the progression of
one full day synthesizing footage shot in Moscow, Riga, and Kiev. The film
begins with titles that declare it "an experiment in the cinematic
communication of visible events without the aid of intertitles, without the
aid of a scenario, without the aid of theater." It is often described as an
urban documentary yet the subject of the film is also the film itself

Message From The Dark Side: Andrew Keen, "Those Tubes Are Killing Me!!!"


**NYTimes book reviewer Michiko Kakutani didn't skewer the reactionary new
book by Andrew Keen -- remember Keen? he's the guy who called Lawrence
Lessig an "intellectual property communist." Wow. I guess that makes Keen
sort of the Christopher Hitchens of Silicon Valley...

(Re: "Tubes" -- anyone remember the name of the Republican Senator who
publicly referred to the Internet as a "bunch of tubes"?)
