"Biofeedback: Give Me Back My Lab and My Freedom of Speech!" is an energetic round-up of musicians, entertainers and visual artists who are creating loud and clear feedback in support of Steve Kurtz and the Critical Art Ensemble (CAE). This benefit will help raise money for Kurtz's legal fees in a case of FBI harassment and silencing dissent. To date, the CAE Defense Fund has raised an impressive $30,000, but projected costs are estimated at $150,000. There is still hope that the court will realize the absurdity of the case and dismiss Kurtz of charges in December; if this does happen, the fund will be used to help others who may find themselves in a similar unfortunate position of political scrutiny.

WiFi.ArtCache is a platform for experimenting with location and proximity
based digital art media. Using Macromedia Flash, Art-Technologists are able
develop digital art that respond to a variety of physical and social
This is a call for contributions for art-technologists interested in
contributing to the WiFi.ArtCache during its exhibition at Spectropolis
October 1-4, 2004. Deadline for submissions is September 26th.
Please send submissions, questions and inquiries to wifiartcache at
techkwondo dot com.
By simply coding to a provided ActionScript 2.0 API, Flash artists are able
to create an interactive experience that changes based on how many people
have downloaded their art object, how many people are currently interacting
with their art object, or whether their art object is currently in range of
the WiFi.ArtCache. Such parameters as how many people are communicating
with the node at a particular moment, how many individual pieces of media
have been downloaded can be used as indicators as to how “socially active”
is the physical area surrounding the WiFi.ArtCache. Likewise, individual
pieces of media can have a “precious” quality through a mechanism that
limits how many of a specific piece can be in use at any particular moment.
The WiFi.ArtCache is a physical object — a server containing a standard WiFi
802.11 access point. When exhibited at the Spectropolis event at New York’s
City Hall Park in Lower Manhattan, the WiFi.ArtCache will contain a
storehouse of art objects. Visitors to the event can download these art
objects onto their 802.11 equipped laptops and experience the artists’
interpretation of location and proximity effects.
Developer documentation and downloads can be found at:
General information about the WiFi.ArtCache concept can be found at:
Additionally, the WiFi.ArtCache will contain a generic storehouse of digital
ephemera that visitors can upload and download to the server. Scratchy
audio, yellowed digital documents, discolored image files and spoiled emails
can all be found and dropped off at the WiFi.ArtCache.
WiFi.ArtCache was developed by Julian Bleecker with support from Eyebeam
Atelier. This exhibition is sponsored by the Downtown Alliance, NYCWireless,
the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Spectropolis.
Spectropolis is curated by Wayne Ashley, Yury Gitman and Brooke Singer
In addition to twelve projects presented in City Hall Park, there will be several hands-on workshops and two panels free to the public.
Spectropolis is curated by Wayne Ashley, LMCC's curator of new media and public programs, and artists Yury Gitman and Brooke Singer.
Spectropolis is produced by Dana Spiegel, Director of NYCwireless, Jordan Silbert, and Jordan Schuster; and co-sponsored by the Downtown Alliance, NYCwireless, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
The Brooklyn Museum, Pace University and the New School University are generously hosting Spectropolis events.

Artistic Research Science Fair
D. Graham Burnett, Sal Randolph, Steve Rowell, Brooke Singer, and Alexandra P. Spaudling
Thursday, April 18, 2013, 12:30–2:00 p.m.
Education Classroom B, mezzanine, The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Museum of Modern Art, New York
The included projects are long-term, multifaceted endeavors that are rarely represented in traditional venues such as museums or galleries, making this session a unique opportunity to learn about them through a direct dialogue with their creators. The program concludes with a round-table conversation among the artists, moderated by D. Graham Burnett, focusing on such questions as: Can science and scholarship be the medium of the artist? What can be learned from the contrast between the creatively driven approach of artistic research and the focused methodology of empirically oriented investigative practices? What happens at the intersection of precise knowledge and infinite possibility? D. Graham Burnett is an editor at Cabinet magazine and teaches at Princeton University.

There is an interesting essay, The Migration of Social Exchange, recently posted on Hyperallergic by James Holland. He mentions my Databody piece from spring 2001 (yes, prior to 9/11). Nice that it is still relevant after over a decade. This is a thoughtful piece that ruminates on the changing landscape of what it means to be social.
Ricardo and I gave a short presentation on ExcessNYC at this cool “conceptual” farmers market at the Hall of Science organized by Liz Slagus last weekend.
I am giving a talk tonight with artist and sometime collaborator, Stefani Bardin, at NYU’s ITP. See the link for details. Should be fun & lively! The event is titled : INPUT / OUTPUT: POLLUTION / SOLUTION: BODIES / SITES. Thanks to Marina Zurkow for organizing.
I have two photographs in Peekskill Project V at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill, NY. There is a lot of great work from artists like Brandon Ballengée, Diana Cooper, Jeffrey Gibson and Ellen Harvey.
