The Situated Body http://www.situated-body.net/

CALL FOR PAPERS, PANELS, DEMONSTRATIONS & PERFORMANCES

The Digital Art Weeks PROGRAM (DAW06) is concerned with the application of digital technology in the arts. Consisting of symposium, workshops and performances, the program offers insight into current research and innovations in art and technology as well as illustrating resulting synergies in a series of performances during the Digital Art Weeks Festival each year, making artists aware of impulses in technology and scientists aware of the possibilities of the application of technology in the arts.

[Kon.[Text]], this year's Digital Art Weeks SYMPOSIUM concerns the use of the Performative Surround in the arts and the technology that drives it. The Performative Surround pertains to the immersive quality and quantity of the setting of a performative artwork that uses electronic media enhancement. Enhanced media art is any artwork that uses electronic media to communicate in part or in whole its message to the viewer. The viewer may be therewith integrated into the performative arena through the use of the communicative powers of the applied media.

In a series of lectures, demonstrations, panels and performances, artists and researcher will examine the use of electronic media in articulating the performer's presence through the possibilities of the multi-sensuality of electronic media. The possibilities of blurring the divide between public and performer to bond them through the powers of dissemination and inclusion ...

THE TANK FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION CAMPAIGN


this a FWD from my email today...

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

as most of you know, the tank is a nonprofit performing arts space in lower manhattan. we believe in maintaining a space for artists in manhattan where they can perform and explore without feeling the financial pressures that manhattan increasingly brings.
We have been in our new home in Tribeca with Collective:Unconscious for almost a year now (!) and it is so nice to not be writing you all on a weekly basis telling you we are losing our home, like we had to do for the first few years of existence.
However, we are still struggling to get by in the big city. But we dont plan on staying that way! oh no.

To that end, we are proud to be launching our Freedom of Expression Campaign. The goal is to raise $100,000 over the next few months to help us secure our somewhat tenuous foothold on the big apple, increase and stabilize our administrative staff, and continue bringing you fantastic, affordable programming for the years to come.

SO HERES HOW IT WORKS
we have secured a few amazing patrons who are collectively willing to donate $65,000 IF (and yes, this here is THE RUB) IF we are able to get 1,000 additional individual donations. Thats right, if 1,000 of our friends, artists, and loved ones donate even $12 to the tank this year, then these donors will unlock the $65,000 they have pledged and we will reach our goal. they want to see that we are loved. can you show them we are loved? yes, you can!
PRETTY NEAT, YES? YES!

But 1000 people is a lot. ive only got like 14 myspace friends and that includes Tom, so thats just not gonna cut it.

so weve got a website. you can go there now and donate any amount of money, become a tank member, get some free stuff in exchange, and generally know youve done your part in securing the future of a place you care about.

YOU CAN EVEN SETUP A MONTHLY DONATION OF $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD.
WOULD YOU EVEN NOTICE AN EXTRA $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT EACH MONTH? NO, YOU WOULD PROBABLY NOT!

READY? Just do it right now while you're thinking about it. Think how good it will feel!! IT WILL FEEL GREAT!

http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

Thanks folks. and if the tank is a place you care about or has been good to you, please consider spreading the word and letting people know...stick it on your blog or your myspace page or whatever. Thanks Thanks Thanks!

Re: Re: thoughts on Appropriation versus Sampling


joy,
yes, i agree...
I really don't have a simple thought that doesn't involve appropriation or sampling on some level. your painting and the photograph involve both but are different resolutions. Refusing that doesn't have to be a generational thing, as in when you were born or what sort of music you have been exposed to. Being able to accept it may be a bent of mind that is reinforced from being creative with a computer though, i hope so, but unfortunately the person suing you hasn't been bitten by that yet.
