Call for applicants::Digital Artists wanted::Educational Opportunity


Apologies for cross postings:

The Digital Arts Division within the School of Art at Bowling Green State
University is seeking artists working in digital, electronic, and
interactive media as applicants for the MFA Degree Program. Digital Arts
Graduate students receive 100% tuition waivers and Graduate Assistantships
in Teaching and/or in Research.

The Digital Arts Division, initiated in 1988, is an established
interdisciplinary studio art program consisting of four full-time and one
visiting faculty. The program addresses a range of activities, including
various forms of interactive media, 2d and 3d animation, 3d modeling,
digital video, net art, virtual environments, digital imaging, gaming,
physical computing, hybrid media, and theory. Graduate students typically
work at very high conceptual and/or technical levels in the development of
independent thesis projects that address issues related to new media and
digital production.

The Digital Arts Laboratory in the School of Art includes a PC lab with 24
Dell Precision dual 300 mhz xeons, 2 gb of RAM, Nividia Quadro FX2000
graphics cards, and 21 inch LCD displays; a MAC lab with 22 G4 PowerMacs
with dual 800mhz processors, 1 gb of RAM, and 17 inch LCD displays; an 8
seat Media100s non-linear video-editing lab; a passive stereo 6 x 9 virtual
reality projection wall with surround-sound stereo; driven by a 3 cpu
windows cluster, and film, flat-bed scanners, digital cameras, camcorders,
HMDs, and cd/dvd burners.

Graduate students in the School of Art at Bowling Green State University
have access to high-end equipment within the university, and through
research partnerships with other institutions. The FLAAR Digital Imaging
Resource Center at BGSU tests and uses a variety of wide format printers,
high resolution scanners, and rapid-prototyping technologies. A partnership
with The New Media Center and the Medical College of Ohio offers Digital
Arts graduates access to state of the art audio and video production and
post-production studios, live motion capture, force feedback systems, and 3d
scanning technologies.

Accepted candidates can pursue the Interdisciplinary Master's Degree option
within the Graduate College by petitioning to combine at least two different
degree areas. This offers candidates the unique opportunity to combine work
in Digital Arts with, for example, Computer Science, Theatre, Film Studies,
Popular Culture, or Music.

Subject: RHIZOME_RAW: Hope

This looks very promising. I can't belive they showed it on MSNBC.
This guy has guts!!! Listen and take action, read the letter below and
send it!
Last night, Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's "Countdown" did a 15-minute
piece on the increasingly obvious and massive election fraud of last
Tuesday. If you didn't see it last night, here's a link to the show.
It runs about 15 minutes:

http://home.comcast.net/~hugh.moore/countdown_on_voting_irregs.wmv

This is the first major story on the theft of the election to hit the
"mainstream media" - there will be more.
Speaking for myself, I find that I am unwilling to sit back and assume
the part of the citizens of Germany in the late 1930's.
If 97,000 people who either don't live in Cuyahoga County, Ohio or who
flat-out
don't exist cast votes there last Tuesday, I want it investigated. I
will not play the part of appeasement.
People are very fond of saying that, if you don't vote, you should
shut up. I agree. But I feel, very strongly, that shutting up and
doing nothing when you've watched a blatant hijacking of your right to
have that vote counted is even worse. It translates to appeasement.
So here's what I'm doing, and what I'm asking.
I'm asking everyone to write to David Walker. He's already been
officially requested by Representative Conyers (D-MI) to investigate
this fraud.
Don't write an e-mail. Yes, they're easy to do and require no work,
but they're also easy to ignore and to lose.
Write a letter, a real live letter. Stamp it. Send it. Make the USPS
have to hire extra trucks to deliver millions of letters to Walker's
office. Make this impossible to brush off or "lose". Have it be an
image on the local nightly news: vox populi.
Then post the letter you write in email, to your entire address list.
Ask them to do the same.
Make this a movement. We have until January 6. This is our best shot.

This is the letter I'm sending out today:

"The Honorable David M. Walker

Comptroller General of the United States
U.S. General Accountability Office
441 G Street, NW
Washington, DC 20548
Dear Mr. Walker:
I am writing as a registered voter and a taxpaying citizen of the
United States, to request that you launch a fully public and visible
investigation into the fast-growing allegations of massive and
wide-spread election fraud perpetrated against the American voting
public on Tuesday, November 2nd.
The freedom to vote, and the right to have your vote properly counted,
is perhaps the single most basic and hard-fought right we have. The
citizens of our country, Democrat and Republican alike, watched in
horror as the shenanigans of Kathleen Harris in Florida during the
2000 election came to light. We now learn of severe discrepancies all
across the country on November 2nd, but most startlingly in Ohio and
Florida, the two states that both sides considered to be pivotal
before the election.
We are at present trying to convince Iraq that democracy is better
than the system they had. If we can offer no credibility for our own
democratic process, how can we expect peace there, or anywhere else?
Please fulfill your duties and begin this investigation. Don't hide it
from America, Mr. Walker. It's time the fraud and chicanery were
brought to light, the perpetrators held accountable, and our democracy
restored.
Sincerely Yours,

Lee Wells

Re: Something constructive-->was F**K B**H


I don't know, I apologize if I sound TOO negative, but admittedly I am
feeling a bit desperate here.
I don't believe that there is no solution, far from it...........but I
firmly believe that we have to take a long hard look at ourselves here. We
lost. We lost Again, and on the senate/house/state level, we lost again and
again and again. The gay marriage thing passed in Ohio like by 65\% or
something really resounding. That is VERY revealing of what we are dealing
with here, this is indicative to me of the "moral imperative" at work.

Do you really think there was a shortage of facts out there? Do you really
think more will help? Information is just that, information...this is about
beliefs, and if belief was fact-based, it would be a very different world.

I believe that it is blind, arrogant, and ignorant on our part to not ask
ourselves what we are doing wrong here. I believe it is pointless to keep
trying the same old strategies, and I think we need a new plan....Maybe not
abandoning the facts; but they are clearly winning through the realm of
illusion. Admittedly I don't have the answer, but I have been trying really
hard to understand why this is happening, how they see us, and what we are
doing "wrong", and what they are doing "right". I think we have to start
now figuring out what this strategy might be, and I DO believe that
something will emerge.

Maybe someone really did hack the voting machines, that would explain a lot.

The majority of voters weren't these 'moral' voters.
> They were about 20\%

I don't know about these numbers, I heard numbers that the percentage of
self-ascribed born agains in the US is 35-40\%. I DO believe that GWB
somehow reaches into the moral core of lots and lots of people, and I
believe that is his success. They are my family, I know them, I can see it
in their eyes...they have been waiting for him for a long time.. Also, they
(these republicans) sort of hate us, the bashing of the coastal, educated,
artsy liberals is utter hypocrisy on GWs part, but big on GW's agenda and
lots and lots of people love it. It works, they see it as revenge. They
hate us. They appear to worship stupidity, it is true, but they are
actually very clever. We have to be more clever somehow, than Cheney, Rove,
the lot of them.

This is not an altruistic game.

Re: Something constructive-->was F**K B**H


Jean:

I have to agree with Ben, they don't really care about facts, that is clear.
They will not go to a web site that does not support their ideology, they do
not want to learn any facts, it is, YES, about FAITH, about getting into
HEAVEN... this world is of no consequence, GWB is chosen by GOD, he shares
their values, constructs their path, and is an avatar. It is all ephemera.
Also not to be rude, but this is important. We must stop assuming that they
are like us...we are interested in facts, reasoning, learning being
challenged, educating. They are not interested, sorry. Wrong strategy. It
just makes things worse. That is what they want you to do. Keep yourself
busy gathering facts after the fact, while they set the agenda. fact
finding is following, exactly where they want us.
However, I am not sure what the right strategy is, but they are playing a
game of constructed virtual realities, and the reality of the virtual is NOT
factual. This could not be more post modern, they are beating us at our own
game. While we win small debates in the UN, in congress, in presidential
campaigns, with our self-perceived, superior intelligence, condescending
need to educate, and evolved skills of reason and memory, liberal desires
for equity for all, we lose the election, and, as in 2000 we lose even if we
win.....what do we need to wake up here?
No, this is a hard one, but for many of the artists on this list, I think
they are in our territory, using our tools, building simulated virtual
narratives, constructing avatars; but theirs are of salvation and
righteousness based in populist fundamentalist rhetoric. Maybe they are
plummeting toward the resurrection, who knows, but we have missed the boat.
We thought they were somewhere else, we underestimated their skills, their
intelligence, their perseverance. I agree with Ben, the oppression is very
sophisticated.....we need a new strategy.
