><param>Palatino</param>Under
the sponsorship of The Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections of
the Cornell University Library, the Rose Goldsen Archive serves as a
research repository of new media art, with a current emphasis on
digital interfaces and experimentation by international, independent
artists. Named after the pioneering critic of the commercialization of
mass media, Professor Rose Goldsen of Cornell University, the Archive
houses art works produced on CD-Rom, DVD-Rom, and the internet, as well
as supporting materials, such as unpublished manuscripts and designs,
catalogues, monographs, and resource guides to new media art.

Emphasizing multimedia artworks that reflect digital extensions of
twentieth-century developments in cinema, video, installation,
photography, and sound, its holdings include the vast selection of
international works exhibited in the exhibition, <underline>Contact
Zones: The Art of CD-Rom</underline>, as well as net.art archived on
the <underline>CTHEORY Multimedia</underline> site maintained by the
Cornell Library. The aim of the Goldsen Archive is to provide
researchers, faculty, and students with a better understanding of the
transformation wrought on the artistic process by digital multimedia
experimentation and development. To this end, access to the archive
will be available via computer workstations in the Kroch Library and
eventually via campus internet servers that will permit the artworks to
be accessed from Cornell libraries, classrooms, and dormitory spaces.
A novel research archive of international significance, the collection
complements holdings in The Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections
of illuminated manuscripts and the early modern printed book, and adds
to the breadth of its important collections in human sexuality and
Asian Studies.

The Archive is curated by Timothy Murray, Professor of Comparative
Literature and English, Director of Graduate Studies in Film and Video,
at Cornell University. Author of books on new media, film, and
performance, Murray has curated new media exhibitions internationally
and is Co-Curator of <underline>CTHEORY Multimedia</underline>. The
curator reviews new materials for inclusion in the archive, and
recommends the addition of reference materials that would contribute to
the intellectual context of the archive. The Archive actively solicits
materials for consideration and/or contribution. Please contact:

Re: RHIZOME DIGEST: 7.19.02


Hi, Rachel,

Just want to make sure that this message came through to you via our
CTHOERY Multimedia web mail; I was having some trouble with the system and
would very much appreciate your making sure that the announcement makes its
way onto the Rhizome list.

Best,

Tim

CTHEORY Multimedia announces a new issue of critically important net.art:

Wired Ruins: Digital Terror and Ethnic Paranoia (Issue 3)
URL: http://ctheorymultimedia.cornell.edu

Reacting to the complex horrors of terrorism while resisting the surveillance
regimes of the disciplinary state, "Wired Ruins" invites its users to
intermix critically with net.art projects in three interactive databases:
"Digital Terror: Ghosting 9-11," "Ethnic Paranoia, before and beyond," and
"Rewiring the Ruins." Resisting the repression of the new age of censorship,
"Wired Ruins" presents digital and viral networks of ethnic identities that
emit
faint signals for recognition among the overlapping diffusions of cultural
angst
and digital terror.

Exhibiting artists: YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES, Horit Herman-Peled,
Tracey Benson, Jay Murphy & Isabelle Sigal, xiix, Lewis LaCook, Davin
Heckman,Robert Hunter & Guilermo Aritza, Dror Eyal & Stacy Hardy, David
Golumbia, Jason Nelson, Dirk J. Platzek & Han Gene Paik, Tobias van Veen
& Alex Bell, Andrew Hieronymi & Tirdad Zolghadr, Christina McPhee, and
Jason Nelson.
