NEXUM ATM


Hi RHIZOME folk,
I'm spreding the word on a new project that I've been working on, NEXUM
ATM, it's both an interactive installation and a web site, please check it
out when you get a chance:

http://www.nexumatm.us/

The installation will be on view at the Bronx Museum through Sept. 28th,
as part of the AIM23 exhibition. The opening is on Wed. July 16th from
6:30-8:30 pm. If you're around please stop by, you can find directions to
the museum at:
http://www.bxma.org/

NEXUM ATM, an interactive video piece in the form of an ATM, presents a
histoy of US global imperialism toward ten small and largely poor
countries. The ten countries represent a history of imperialism dating
back to the 1820's to the present. Nexum is the latin word meaning
getting out of debt through slavery.

Accompanying the physical ATM is a web site:

http://www.nexumatm.us/

The site is informational depository to contest the actions of the Bush
administration by presenting information and links toward civil
mobilization. The site features an atlas of intervention, the Nexum
Anthem, interviews with individuals concerning the US's global status...

p.s. In september look for a second ATM installed at a free public
location in NYC.

1000 iCONS


In today's global climate, one can almost expect a new disaster reported
in the daily headlines. Ricardo Miranda Zuniga has created an
icon-based page that maps the deaths reported in the headlines of the
New York Times online. 1000 icons represent a 1000 human being. From
June 15th to August 25th one icon will disappear for each death reported
on the front page of the New York Times Online. The space from which
the icons disappear will be populated by a new icon representing how the
reported death(s) occurred. If the death(s) occurred due to an act of
aggression, the new icon will be accompanied by a flag or emblem
representing the nation, organization or individual claiming responsibility.
Below the icons are listed each day's death headline(s) and a calendar of
past mappings.
