FREE MANIFESTA NEWSLETTER 22.8.02

-------------------------------------------

The summer of FREE MANIFESTA is coming to a close, and August 25 (Sunday)
will be the last day to stop by the Free Manifesta headquarters and pick up
free art and artists information sheets. However, many of the FREE
MANIFESTA artists projects are ongoing, especially work accessible through
the internet. The FREE MANIFESTA website will remain online indefinitely as
a catalog of the show and an access point to all of the artists and their
works.

The next two issues of this newsletter will focus on the wide array of
internet artworks which are part of FREE MANIFESTA. I'd like to send
particular thanks to RHIZOME for creating and sustaining an amazing
community of artists, so many of whom have contributed generously and
enthusiastically to this project.

.IO-N (INPUT & OUTPUT NETWORK): GREGORY CHATONSKY

IO-N.NET is a cooperative project in FLASH which presents artistic proposals
whose starting points are "neutral" technological elements (HTML code,
iteration, synthesis, downloading, screensaver, etc.) and whose point of
arrival is the constitution of new perceptions: technologies far from being
instruments subjected to our will, restructure our being-in-world, our
identity, our imaginary and our esthetics.
You are invited to submit new projects. http://io-n.net/

*DECAY: CHRIS BASSETT

*decay makes visible the underlying technologies in many of the images and
transactions across the internet. This isn't as simple as code
deconstruction though, its more about making something beautiful in its
self-destruction. 5 famous images are borrowed from the Louvre and subjected
to destruction as they are viewed across the internet. Much as light fades
and varnish collects dust, these digital versions crumble into patterns of
noise with each passing set of eyes. http://decay.robot138.com/

mezangelle system is devoted to the exploration and push and pull of new
media and avatar/collaborative layering via a networked medium. The emphasis
of _][ad][Dressed in a Skin Code_ revolves around the use of mezangelle,
which evolved/s from multifarious email exchanges, computer code flavoured

ANTI-SMOKERS-SP01: ALEXANDRA REILL

anti-smokers-sp01 is a selfportrait of the author relating to a smoker's
conditioning in an environment conditioned on anti-smoking and the
conditioning of a non-smokers' environment by a smoker's dispostions.
interactivity focuses on the personal use & view of the user.
anti-smokers-sp01 can be viewed as a classical photo series or - by moving
the scrollbar up & down in an individual rhythm - as animated movie in 8
parts, each developing a different rhythm through the user's emotional &
sensual approach. Is there more to health than health- and anti-health
questions ? More to moral than moral- and anti-moral questions ? Truth- and
anti-truth questions ? Do individual approaches to perception maybe contain
more authenticity & reality than theories & classified approaches of
perception ? alexandra reill 2002 http://www.kanonmedia.com/sp01/self01.htm

ART-DEATH INTERNATIONAL SURVEY: TAMARA LAI

Is Art Dead? For a number of years, some theorists have been asserting that,
with the advent of the internet and wild reproduction (sampling, copy-paste,
etc.), we are witnessing the death of art. If we are to assume that art is
dead, what would you replace it with? More than 150 artists and
intellectuals replied to this call for participation. They each submitted a
"representation" of the concept of "art" - image, photo, text, etc.

BANNER ART COLLECTIVE: BRANDON BARR (FOUNDER)

The Banner Art Collective (http://www.bannerart.org/) creates, collects, and
distributes web.art and poetry within the limitations and context of web
advertisements. Artists can add works to the collection, and viewers can
host works from the collection on their own websites by pasting a few lines
of code into their own HTML code.

CAUTION: EMILIE PITOISET

Larsen is a sound effect which generates itself its own accidents. Its
operation is established in connection with a positive feedback whose Reason
exceeds 1. Thus, this acoustic phenomenon becomes an autonomous system which
to perhaps control by a negative feedback, implying an interaction for
example. CAUTION announces any participative means. This site functions on
the model of Larsen essentially. It is geared down, regenerating itselfby
the intermediary of an invasion of the screen, of 44"popup" windows
(simulating a labyrinth) each one comprising 44 individual larsens. That
reduces the memory of the navigator and the fact bugger. This work functions
with the manner of an autonomous system which loops unceasingly on itself
and creates the accident. http://l.artsen.free.fr/

Cult of the Cor[porat]e [Per]form[ance] Art[ist] - Shoot the Bird: JOSEPH
FRANKLYN MCELROY & DONNA MCELROY

Performance has become a key term that in turns applys to experimental art,
worker productivity, and functionality of technical, corporate, and military
systems. Extrapolating from the purist corporatist bent, when we call
Performance artistic, it references a cultural production that is meaningful
and has defineable roles in relation to the subjects of experience. In Allan
Kaprow's book of essays "The Blurring of Art and Life", he is interested in
an intersection between art and life...mainly, does a line have to exist at
all ... maybe it is possible to bend art space to the Life Standard or life
space to the Art Standard. The Cor[porat]e [Per]form[ance] Art[ist] explores
this line, and extends the line into virtual space or Virtual Standard.

DAILY HEADLINE DEATHS: RICARDO MIRANDA ZUNIGA

A web page will be populated by 1000 individual icons resembling human
figures. Each icon represents a 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 deaths 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). http://www.ambriente.com/today/

THE DIGITAL POCKET GALLERY: KANARINKA, PIRUN, JESS LOSEBY, JEREMY TURNER

The digital pocket gallery effort began in March 2002. The digital pocket
gallery was inspired by the real-life Pocket Gallery at 536 gallery in
Vancouver, Canada. The 536 Digital Wallet Gallery in Helsinki, Finland, is
a related effort which is also accepting submissions. Pockets contain
miniature biographies and testaments to our lives and forgotten stories. The
crumpled train ticket speaks of journeys taken, the handful of confetti in
your 'best' jacket of a wedding years before or the telephone number on the
back of a matchbook given by a someone who's name and face is long
forgotten. Files and folders are the 'digital pockets' of the internet
artist. The hard-drive is an autobiography in coded form. Dreams, ideas and
waste lie hidden in these cryptically labelled pockets that have become the
maps and landscapes of our virtual lives.

DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY: JUDSON

Binary digital technology as applied to the current user remains
asynchronous. Are we prepared for what our disturbingly expensive
hardware/software, internet connections bring us. The machines currently
marketed are still rather primitive and yet the industry has been
drastically "upgrading" for approximately 15 years. This piece serves as
commentary, as well as a demonstration of the hi-end state of our machines'
processing ability. http://plasmastudii.org/techno/techno.html

ENANTIOTROPIA: BUGS (ALIAS LUCILLA LODI)

Enanthiothropeia (turning): the reversible transformation of a substance
between different lattice form. In the chaotic and contradictory complexity
of the "dailiness", its constrictive rules, is almost impossible the
abstraction leading us to a spiritual, human dimension. It's common
conception that machineries induce to a loss of perception of the "Reality".
But, what's this "Reality"?

ENREGISTER 1: ARMELLE AULESTIA

This proposal functions on the rhythmic alternation of appearance and
disappearance. An object, and a voice whispering uncertain words, dissolve
into each other or superimpose onto each other in an imprecise way, in an
incessant back and forth. "Enregistrer 1" is elaborated on the idea of
unrolling, of visual and resonant wavering, the game of the compulsive
gesture that starts the circle/cycle of repetition, of the loop again,
indefinitely free from alteration of meaning.

EURO STARS: ANDREJ TISMA

Euro Stars web site is an ironical view of Europe and its history full of
wars, destruction and barbarism which continues to our days. It is a
reaction to the big EU's campaign for united Europe in which many countries
from the region would like to become members of. This is a web site which
shows how most of European countries came to their wealth and today's
status, and why are they still striving for power and globalization. Every
yellow star from the EU's circle symbol is linked to an image which
illustrates my message through documentary scene, from the past and present.

FILMSCAPE: NICOLAS CLAUSS

Filmscape, an interactive video triptych (in shockwave and on the web), is a
formal research. The purpose is to let the sight explore a short film
extract like it would explore a landscape, leaving imagination travelling.
Each piece is a endless loop in which you can move by zooming. By moving
the scene from one corner to another, the viewer will launch narrative
(visual and sound) elements which give different interpretation of the
scene. Finally Filmscape is the use of founded filmed scenes (like founded
objects) which found a second "life".

21 & 22 JULY: Video from artist SIMON MORRIS and DR. HOWARD BRITTON (UK) -
DOMESTIC LECTURES ON PAUL MCCARTHY WITH COMPLIMENTARY LECTURE NOTES. In
September 2001, the artist Simon Morris and the psychoanalyst Dr. Howard
Britton decided to exchange information on their respective disciplines.
Alternating on a weekly basis, one would visit the other and deliver a
lecture on a subject from their own discipline. The lectures were filmed
with both the 'teacher' and the 'student' being recorded. The lectures took
place in their domestic spaces and were intermittently interrupted by cats,
dogs, small children, telephone calls and aeroplanes passing overhead. In
December 2001, Simon Morris gave an introductory lecture on Paul McCarthy's
work. A few days before Christmas they went to view a Paul McCarthy exhibit
at The Tate Gallery in Liverpool. In January 2002 Dr. Howard Britton gave a
lecture on the work of Jacques Lacan, using Paul McCarthy's piece, 'Bossy
Burger' to illustrate Lacan's three registers; the real, the symbolic and
the imaginary. The domestic lectures will be presented here in public for
the first time. Lecture notes that were during the recording of each lecture
will be made freely available to spectators. 21 JULY AND 22 JULY, EACH
LECTURE AT 6PM (18:00) in the Trespassing Space at Manifesta 4's
Frankensteiner Hof location (in Sachsenhausen).

Help Wanted ! for a project Fragile Art

Misa Namekawa Is a New York based Japanese artist. Namekawa places
five-inch-tall plaster versions of the Statue of Liberty on the streets .
After pedestrians kick and step on them, she collect the broken pieces,
assemble them back into their original form, and photograph them. She will
make the broken statues' posters from the photographs and post them in the
streets in Frankfurt.

MID-SUMMER REPORT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MIDSUMMER REPORT: 225 ARTISTS & GROUPS ARE PARTICIPATING IN FREE MANIFESTA

July 15, 2002, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. As of the close of the entry
period on June 30, 2002, 225 artists and collectives had joined Free
Manifesta, resulting in the participation of over 300 individual artists.
Free Manifesta is an open show of nonmonetary art in public spaces, and is
an official participant of Manifesta 4, the European Biennial of
Contemporary art, being held currently in Frankfurt am Main, Germany (from
24 May through 25 August, 2002).

Artists are participating in Free Manifesta from all over Eastern and
Western Europe, as well as the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America
and Australia. In contrast with Manifesta 4, for which there was no
application process, Free Manifesta accepted any artist who chose to enter.
Organizer Sal Randolph says. "It is an experiment in creating a gift
economy, where artists produce their works independently and together create
a social network and context for perceiving the work."

By the end of August, more than 45 artists will have traveled to Frankfurt
to do projects in the spaces of the city. These include an installation in
the city library by Jennifer Pickering (Canada), psychogeographical walks
through the streets by Christina Ray (US) and Adrian Lear (Scotland), and
Nick Grindell (Germany) moving sound installations by Jermy Turner (Canada)
and Janne Vanhannen (Finland), an exhibition in the coat-check of the Musuem
of Modern Art in Frankfurt organized by Norman Beierle (Germany), Valentina
Ferrarese (Italy) and Hester Keijser (Netherlands), street postering by
Swoon (US), and video projections by Igor Antic (Serbia), Raphael Di Luzio
(US), Simon Morris & Dr. Howard Britton (UK) and Rostopasca Group (Romania).

The idea of public space has been defined very broadly in the context of
Free Manifesta to encompass not only the streets and sidewalks but also
commercial and municipal space, public airwaves, telephone and mail systems
and the internet. Over half of the Free Manifesta projects make use of
public communications media which link people together across countries and
continents, enabling artists to contribute their work from a distance.
Telephone art projects include Susan Mendes Silva's "Artphone" (Portugal)
which offered her telephone number for anyone who wished to discuss
contemporary art. Mail art projects include Luc Fieren's
"POSTFLUXPOSTBOOKLETS" (Belgium) and Terry Kitchen's (US) offer to send some
of his semen -- cryogenically stored as an art project in 1968 -- to any
woman who wishes to become artificially inseminated. Kathe Izzo (US) in
"True Love" offers to fall in love with you for one day, communicating by
email.

The Free Manifesta website (http://www.freemanifesta.org) acts as a portal
for over 65 online & internet artworks, including Christophe Bruno's "The
Google Adwords Happening" (France), Rainer Ganahl's "Picture Rubble"
(Austria/US), Joy Garnett's "Smokescreen" (US), Tamara Lai and Jimpunk's
javascript movie "T.L.J." (Belgium, Cyberspace), Eryk Salvaggio's
"Salvaggio Museum" (US), and Jody Zellen's "Ghost City" (US). Cristine
Wang's "Defining Lines" brings together projects from a further 35 internet
artists, including 0100101110101101.ORG who are the only artists to be
official participants in both Manifesta 4 and Free Manifesta.

The Free Manifesta headquarters, located in the exhibition spaces of
Manifesta 4 in the ground floor of the Frankfurter Kunstverein serves as an
office, information center, and a place for artists to meet and work on
projects. In addition, over 4000 individual artworks by 40 different artist
are being given away in a special free art area of the headquarters. Among
these are "930" by Mark Malmgren of South Carolina (US) who has made enough
watercolor paintings for 10 to be given away every day for the duration of
the show, "You cannot by art, art cannot be sold" an edition of 1000 plastic
shopping bags by Heribert Friedl (Austria), and "Lock on, lock out," museum
lapel pins with military targets on them by David Borowski (US), and "Normal
Zoning Tape" from the Normal Group for Architecture (US/Switzerland/Serbia)
as well as a large variety of prints, drawings, booklets, stickers, cds,
cd-roms, floppy disks and other small-scale works. The smallest artworks
submitted were from Peter Coffin of New York whose "Placebo Acid Project"
consisted of 1,271 individual hits of placebo blotter acid. Several
artists intervened in the space of the headquarters; Ellen Harvey (US) drew
a welcome mat, Kathrin Bohm (Germany/UK) tagged the office with her street
posters, Sara Reeske (US) drilled a doily pattern into the office cabinet.

Free Manifesta is the work of New York artist Sal Randolph, who purchased
her participation rights in Manifesta 4 for $15,099 on Ebay. She produces
independent artistic projects, most recently the Free Biennial (2002,
www.freebiennial.org) and Free Words (2001-2, www.freewords.org).
