Collision 8

Sal Randolph:
Hello friends,

Opsound is in residence this fall at Art Interactive gallery in
Cambridge, Massachusetts & I'd love to see you.

Beginning October 14, Opsound will be part of Glowlab's "Open Lab",
an exhibition and festival of psychogeographic explorations
headquartered at Art Interactive. Opsound will be collecting and
generating a sound portrait of Cambridge and Boston through
recordings in the gallery, sound gathering walks through various
neighborhoods, and via contributions from sound artists and musicians
over the internet. All the collected material will be broadcast as a
24/7 internet radio stream -- a special edition of the 'opstream' --
that will grow throughout the exhibition.

I'll be in residence several weekends of the show, and I'd be
delighted if you stopped by to have some coffee, chat, contribute
sounds, and walk with me through interesting parts of the city.

Random Magazine gets (a little) bilingual

RANDOM MAGAZINE - new media art /e-culture

Random Magazine is an italian webzine about new media art. In the last months we realized that our readers are becoming more and more international. For this reason, from now on, the website gets (a little) bilingual. For every italian article we will also provide a short english

summary. Users can now post in italian and in english as well!

RANDOM MAGAZINE daily explores the intersections between art, technology and society. It features news, critical writings, reviews and call for artists.

We are interested in lots of different topics, aiming to offer a 360 view on digital creativity: videoart, electronic music, net art, webdesign, videogames, hacktivism, software art, videoclip and much more.

RANDOM MAGAZINE invites all artists, scholars, critics and fans of new media art to visit the website and join the community. So that the webzine can become a collective platform for dialog, information exchange and research.

In order to login in you just need to write your name and e-mail address.

Members can access to all areas, post their own content, join the forum, receive the weekly newsletter. They can also communicate directly in real

time through a messaging software.

Random Magazine is also available in RSS format

Triggered by RFID

Mediamatic workshop
Triggered by RFID 2
November 7| 8| 9| 2005
@ Amsterdam

Are you tired of standing in line in front of the cash desk? Lost your luggage at the airport? Your cat is missing again? Or could’nt find your favorite parfume on the store shells anymore? RFID seems to be the solution!

RFID is the barcode of the future, equipping individual objects with IP addresses. Metadata for physical objects will make an internet of things possible.

After a succesfull RFID workshop in July, Mediamatic introduces the ideas and technology behind RFID for the second time in November. It seizes initiative to adopt RFID for artistic and social purposes and is designed for artists, designers and researchers, who want to look beyond the logistical horizon of this emerging technology.

In 3 days, theoretical views are combined with practical experiments. You will learn all about the technical components with an RFID set of tags, readers, and database in your hands. There is enough space to develop your own ideas and discuss them with like-minded fellows and professionals.

For further information and registration visit, call Klaas Kuitenbrouwer: +31 20 6389901 or mail to


Caller ID of the Beast

The caller ID of the beast, as seen my local Radio Shack. For some reason, when this unit is powered on it shows 6’s until it starts. Totally strange, and a little freaky too.
