Be Something announces the first biannual one2one festival, taking
place at private and public locations throughout Manhattan and
Brooklyn. A small and intimate participatory performance festival,
one2one is based on the concept of direct energetic transmission of
the artist to the audience and back again. All performances are
designed for an audience of one (or in very special situations, a
pair of close friends or relatives).

A combination of the sweet, the provocative, the awkward and the
seductive, one2one offers approximately 30 individual appointments
for the entire festival.

In most cases, performances run consecutively throughout the day.
Appointments for individual performances can be made through
info@besomething.org or with the individual artists at the email
addresses listed below.

MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT TODAY!

A closing party will take place in the early evening, open to
participants and general public. Location TBA, DETAILS TO FOLLOW ON
THE BE SOMETHING WEBSITE.

A full catalog of one2one is available at the Be Something website
(www.besomething.org).

Full-size images available upon request.

BE SOMETHING: Initiated by Kathe Izzo and Sal Randolph ,
incorporating a rotating/morphing roster of artists, and born out of
the spirit of intense friendship, BE SOMETHING is action as love. BE
SOMETHING is thought process as neighborhood. BE SOMETHING is
provocation as invitation, where art viewing becomes art making and
the rest is history.

A prototype for flamboyant collaboration that is as old school as
it is revolution, BE SOMETHING is a rendezvous portal for
participation and everyone is invited.

The Look of Love

Kathe Izzo

In appointments lasting approximately one hour, I will teach you how
to focus your love through your gaze to maximum effect, even at great
distance. In addition you will receive the benefit of receiving my
unconditional love the entire time, with all that entails.

Conceptual performance artist Kathe Izzo has loved the world, one
person at a time (for one day, one hour, one afternoon, evening or
morning) for the last four years through her True Love Project
(www.trueloveproject.com). In the past year, her work has been
presented through Queer Up North (UK), Artemis (Miami), Cinders
(Brooklyn) and Experimentica (Cardiff). To this date, she has loved
over 200 people, with only a few disgruntled patrons. She is
currently at work on her memoir, LOVE ARTIST.

Hello friends,

Opsound is in residence this fall at Art Interactive gallery in
Cambridge, Massachusetts & I'd love to see you.

Beginning October 14, Opsound will be part of Glowlab's "Open Lab",
an exhibition and festival of psychogeographic explorations
headquartered at Art Interactive. Opsound will be collecting and
generating a sound portrait of Cambridge and Boston through
recordings in the gallery, sound gathering walks through various
neighborhoods, and via contributions from sound artists and musicians
over the internet. All the collected material will be broadcast as a
24/7 internet radio stream -- a special edition of the 'opstream' --
that will grow throughout the exhibition.

I'll be in residence several weekends of the show, and I'd be
delighted if you stopped by to have some coffee, chat, contribute
sounds, and walk with me through interesting parts of the city.

Glowlab: Open Lab
Curated by Christina Ray
A nine-week-long psychogeography festival and exhibition

In Fall 2005, Art Interactive is conducting a nine-week-long
experiment. We have invited artists affiliated with Glowlab, a
network of psychogeographers, to use the Central Square neighborhood
as the site of their research and fill the exhibition space with the
results of their investigations. PSYCHOGEOGRAPHY, a term coined by
the Situationist International in the 1950s and appropriated by
contemporary artists, is used to describe projects that produce
affect in relation to the geographic environment. Rather than making
maps in the traditional geographic sense, these artists utilize maps
and geography to conduct located experiments with (among other
things) people, trash, bikes, clothes, the sky and the gallery space
itself. Often making use of mobile technologies and existing in the
hybrid spaces of the Internet and the physical world, their projects
produce new understandings of location and identity as shifting,
fluid, singular and irreducible.

Central Square, Cambridge, MA, will never be the same again. Join us
for nine weeks of public walks, talks, tours, workshops, concerts,
group bike rides, and other ways of exploring the Central Square
neighborhood. Each weekend of the festival, different Glowlab artists
will be present to lead participatory public events inside and
outside the Art Interactive space. Visit the online schedule at
http://www.artinteractive.org/calendar for more details about
upcoming events or email info@artinteractive.org.

Glowlab: Open Lab
Opening Reception: Friday, October 14th, 2005, 6 - 9pm

Gallery Hours & Location:
Art Interactive is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12 - 6pm or by

DISCUSSION

whereyouare, an invitation


Dear friends,

I'd like to invite you to participate in a new project of mine.

Whereyouare ( http://whereyouare.org ) is an experiment in the
collective documentation of neighborhoods. It harnesses the power of
folksonomy tags from a range of sites that host and organize content
of different kinds (flickr for photos, vimeo for video, delicious for
links, etc.). To contribute, you simply tag your content with a tag
that is unique to your neighborhood and the project, and everyone's
material is brought together on whereyouare.org.

I began this project with the idea of documenting my own neighborhood
of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, whose quirky and ephemeral beauties are
currently endangered by a wave of new development. Walking my
familiar streets I realized that I couldn't possibly be the only
person who had this idea - many others must be simultaneously
working to capture the flavor of this place, this moment in time.
Why not invite collaboration and share our perceptions of place with
each other?

As with most people, recent events have radically altered my idea of
what an endangered or lost neighborhood is, and it seemed right to
open the project up for wider use. Everyone is invited to participate
by documenting any neighborhood they love. Those with material from
neighborhoods which have now been damaged or destroyed by Katrina are
especially warmly encouraged to contribute.

http://whereyouare.org

all the best,

Sal
