iKatun in Toronto: Day #1, Instruction #42


----------------------------------------------
100(11) Instruction Works ---- www.ikatun.com/100-11/
----------------------------------------------

Tonight iKatun kicks off 7a*11d's 5th International Performance Art Festival
with the performance of the first of eleven instruction works. This
performance will take place at 7PM at the opening reception for the festival
at 401 Richmond St., Toronto, Canada.

Each day of the festival, iKatun will be performing one instruction work
somewhere in Toronto from those submitted to the project website:

www.ikatun.com/100-11/

Tonight, iKatun will infiltrate the opening reception for the festival with
the below instruction:

----------------------------------------------
DAY #1: INSTRUCTION #42 -- "the Grotesque"

A person [or a few persons] enters - a stage or something - and stops. Then
slowly starts taking off the shirt, slowly turning it inside out and then
putting it back on again. This goes on until all garments are turned inside
out. When finished the performer exits. If performed by more than one the
performance can be organized so that the performers are taking off and
turning different clothes inside out at the same time (somone takes of shirt
as someone takes of trousers as someone etc).

REQUEST: Cartography/Artists


--- apologies for cross-posting ---

Hello all -

I am working with Denis Wood and others to compile a list (as comprehensive
as possible) of contemporary artists working with/about/around/through
cartography and maps. I would greatly appreciate the help of the net.art &
new media community in assembling this list as I feel that it's a topic that
is intimately related to these fields.

The artists you send me can work in any medium (2d, 3d, performance,
net.art, sound, etc etc).

Please email me the following for each artist:

Name
url (if they have one),
Titles of works related to cartography (if you know them)
Short description of artist's work (1 sentence or less)

If this list is published (which is the intention) then we will credit you
for your contribution.

Thanks for your help & best,
kanarinka

FW: 09.30.2004 - Watch the first presidential debate @ AI, reconstituted


<http://artinteractive.org/html_email/top_performance.gif>
<http://artinteractive.org/html_email/shim.gif> Join us at Art
Interactive next Thursday, September 30th for a special event:

"reconstitution": an audio/visual transformation of the 2004
presidential debates, performed live with reconstituted video, audio,
and closed captions, and the aesthetic freshness you've come to expect
from the sosolimited collective.

What: "reconstitution", a live audio/visual transformation of the 2004
presidential debates

When: Thursday, September 30th, doors @ 8:30PM

Where: The Art Interactive, 130 Bishop Allen Dr, Cambridge MA

Who: sosolimited, an audiovisual artist collective comprised of Timon
Botez, Eric Gunther, Justin Manor, and John Rothenberg

For more information: info@artinteractive.org or 617-498-0100

More details from sosolimited:

reConstitution is a two-part performance series in which we remix the
presidential debates in real-time. We will digitize the video, audio,
and close
captioning of the television signal on the fly and perform live
transformations on the
material. We will only use material sampled live during the course of
the debate.

The debates are a vital source of information for voters. Accordingly,
one
of the primary goals of the performance is to preserve the information
being presented and to remain as unbiased as possible. In the course of
the performance we will go through different modes, each of which will
have a different aesthetic and information design. Within each of these
modes, there will be room for us to react to the events of the debate
and pla y with the material. Each mode will be designed to structure the
information in a new and interesting way.

From an information standpoint, the performances will allow us to shed
light on various patterns and higher level structures that are difficult
to perceive during a traditional television broadcast of the event. For
example, we will have the ability to keep statistics of the number of
times each candidate says certain words and display graphics showing the
tallies. In addition, we will be able to save text and video from
specific moments in the debate and recall them at any moment.

who we are:

sosolimited is an audiovisual artist collective comprised of Timon
Botez,
Eric Gunther, Justin Manor, and John Rothenberg. We design our own
software and specialize in audiovisual performance. We have performed in
Cambridge, New York, and at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz,
Austria.
