The Pacific Rim New Media Summit

How are information technology and creativity shaping new directions in
the arts and sciences around the Pacific Rim? What challenges face
organizations and individuals in the region who are working in the
fields of architecture, design, literature, theater, music? How do the
puzzle pieces of academic research and information technology-based
industry fit into this picture?

The political and economic space of the Pacific Rim represents a dynamic
context for innovation and creativity. Experimentation in the many
disciplines that encompass art, science, and technology is resulting in
the emergence of new forms of cultural production and experience unique
to the region. The complex relations and diversity of Pacific Rim
nations are exemplified as well throughout the hybridized communities
that comprise Silicon Valley.

The Pacific Rim New Media Summit will be a gathering of organizations
and representatives from the Pacific Rim and Asia to look at the complex
relations and diversity of Pacific Rim nations and to focus on the
development of partnerships in order to address the multiple challenges
faced throughout the region as it develops its arts and sciences
networks in tandem with its increasing economic influence. This
trans-disciplinary event will have a specific focus on educational
methodologies and practices.

The summit is organized into seven working groups according to the
following topic areas:

* Distributed Curatorial (Chair: Steve Dietz)
* Education (Co-Chairs: Rob van Kranenburg, Gustaff H. Iskandar and
Fatima Lasay)
* Place, Ground and Practice (Chair: Danny Butt)
* Urbanity and Locative Media (Chair: Soh-Yeong Roh)
* Latin America/Pacific-Asia New Media Initiatives (Chair: Jose-Carlos
Mariategui)
* Piracy and the Pacific (Chair: Steve Cisler)
* The Invisible Dynamics of the Pacific Rim and the Bay Area (Co-Chairs:
Susan Schwartzenberg and Peter Richards)

Summit objectives include exploration of innovative models for
cooperation among institutions, development of interaction strategies
with technology corporations, investigation of radical responses to
emergent cultural issues and conditions, engagement with Diaspora
communities, and the establishment of an on-going Pacific Rim Network of
New Media Educational Institutions.

Special issue of Leonardo (Vol. 39, No. 4)

A special issue of Leonardo will be devoted to the work of the seven
Pacific Rim working groups, featuring new media educational programs and
artists from the Pacific-Asia region. The print issue of the journal,
due to be released in conjunction with the symposium, will include
statements by artists as well as articles by cultural theorists looking
at issues germane to the seven working group topics, plus introductory
texts by the working group chairs.

Some of the topics covered in the issue include:

- Surfing the Outernet: Where net art presented the medium of the
Internet, locative art brings to the fore those of mobile and wireless
systems. Drew Hemment unfolds a taxonomy of locative-art approaches to
the gap between the perfect grid and the reality of the mapped world.

- Cyber-Mythologies and Portraits of Dispossession: Rachel O'Reilly
examines how Asian and Pacific understandings of place in recent work by
Vernon Ah Kee, Lisa Reihana and Qiu Zhijie expand the frames of
contemporary locative art.

- Cartographies of the future: Annie Lambla discusses the San Francisco
Exploratorium's Invisible Dynamics project, which considers the museum's
relocation from a perspective integrating art, science and geographic
context.

- Culture, uncontained: Commerce, communication and technology
intertwine in the works of the Pacific Rim New Media Summit exhibition
Container Culture. Artists from Mumbai to Vancouver use the medium and
metaphor of shipping containers to explore regional and global complexities.

Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS)
Next submission deadline: 30 March 2006

Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS), consisting of the English LABS

Ph.D., Masters and MFA thesis abstracts on topics in the emerging
intersection between art, science and technology. Individuals receiving
advanced degrees in the arts (visual, sound, performance, text),
computer sciences, the sciences and/or technology that in some way
investigate philosophical, historical or critical applications of
science or technology to the arts are invited to submit abstracts of
their theses for consideration.

The English LABS and Spanish LABS international peer review panels
review abstracts for inclusion in their respective databases. The
databases include only approved and filed thesis abstracts. Abstracts of
theses filed in prior years may also be submitted for inclusion.

In addition to publication in the databases, a selection of abstracts
chosen by the panels for their special relevance will be published
quarterly in Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), and authors of abstracts
most highly ranked by the panel will also be invited to submit an
article for publication consideration in the journal Leonardo.
