Recalling innate brain file culling during my youth, and later, when this contextually-laden trove emerged, I found it to be an intuitively self-revealing baseline: the 1960s-1980s, allowing economical million $ projects and accomplishing conceptual vocabulary aspects; having received international, national, state, University recognition and grants, which importantly allowed this analog radio baby to segue; re 'mind-melding' w/Nano technologies and reciprocal commerce streams/interactivities; however, I acknowledge shared "participation" among those of similar minds -from all pasts- as one 'investigative' catalytic conceptualist.<<

Hi Leif!
Yes, we must set this lecture up. Let me check with schedules /
possible room etc and get back to you after the semester starts up. I
like the idea of a skype connection... would that be with Guy? Not
sure how you imagine that part.
more later!

We the People

getting very soon to our pasts
While a 1969 undergrad at SAIC http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/lbarchivesb1.htmlin Chicago I remember to visitors to art classes: Robert Rauschenberg's sound-producing and sound-activated works in the 1960s. I paused daily during frequent walks through SAIChicago's Gunsaulus Hall to catch my Michigan Avenue CTA westbound bus. The gallery space was not a usually crowded-except on opening afternoons- and I zoomed in on the R.R's island of found (w2vr.) soundable-objects.http://www.w2vr.com/archives/Kluver/04_Oracle.html I listened to invasive reverbs from floor bound metal objects being reflected from cloth-covered walls. Run-away-radio dials. Deep-throat sounds vibrated from a wheeled tuba which, for this gallery over the Illinois Central commuter tracks, was surrounded by mute glass-framed glisening images looking on and aimed like focused solar panels upon this "sculptural installation entitled Oracle." Interactivities were possible and anyone could scan the AM and FM radio frequencies. Not the first time nor the last time sound entered the usually hushed visual gallery. The human made artifacts which Rauschenberg selected and assembled were very much at home in the steel, brick and hand carved stone structure.
I also heard a Robert Smithson http://www.robertsmithson.com concept which was, for me, THE aside from his '68 chat with students in SAIC'S Fullerton Hall: "...artists should have their own satellite..." Thanks to University of Minnesota Graduate School and National USA Art Endowment grants I was able to conceive, rent and executed a Teleconstructs series of two-way interactive Westar IV satellite projects and the first was Hudson River Museum http://www.hrm.org Teleconstructs Spacework I http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/lbarchivesf4.html#anchor149487. Eventually my concentration focused on web networking http:weblackwhole,net interactivity potentials.

I'd be happy to link your eartotheearthorg/artists to my weblackwhole, and will do so if you like... collaborating THE 2012 challenge to us all...best of luck to us all...here's my pop up webpage http://weblackwhole.net click on Birch roots "tree truth" http://vimeo.com/user7723638/videos
Well, I'm conceptually thinking re Global matters,affiliate nodes with other like minded individuals-via free Skype, college newspapers, who if snagged-, and their collective multiplexed sensing input and demuxed output, could evolve growable networking fr/neighborhood-to-neighborhood from their ground sites: realtime social personal netng." whadya think...aim for 2-waying handhelds, syncing w/DSP, DAW stations
