Dates:
Fri Apr 16, 2004 00:00 - Thu Apr 15, 2004

Compact-Impact Night is a new media and design exhibition show that promotes the latest ideas and creations in technology and places them in the Japanese design and technology store TKNY for public view. The idea is to encourage new media artists, designers and technologists to create works beyond the prototyping phase and to give them an outlet for presenting their works to the public; be it art, installation, interior design, product design, space design, toys, video manipulation, games, or music.

EVENT

re_image @ Remote Lounge, NYC


Dates:
Wed Mar 31, 2004 00:00 - Tue Mar 30, 2004

re_image is a Finishing School (FS) action that utilizes the existing interactive technology of Remote Lounge to raise public awareness of the ease in corrupting technology and the potential misuse of surveillance data; and to challenge the participants actions regarding the politics of identity and body imaging-both as subject and as viewer.

Remote Lounge describes itself as a hands-on digital entertainment lounge that integrates art, technology, and nightlife. It focuses media attention on guests and invites them to explore themselves, each other, and the world through a layer of technology. Walking in the door alone generates content that can be revisited later online. The physical space was designed around a media as architecture concept that enhances the virtual experience. RL invites guests to enter the virtual electronic world, where all is visible and accessible.

Counter to the interactive model designed by Remote Lounge, participants in the re_image action are not aware of the physical presence of FS at RL. Anonymous confrontation stimulates real emotions (anxiety, fear, anger, and unresolved conflict) that can be used to foster a clearer understanding of issues related to surveillance culture.

Please join us in the lower level, there is no cover charge for this
event.

DISCUSSION

Re: Re: Historically Significant Imitations


Hello everybody,
It seems fair to me if Carlo's work is also included in the artbase and
both works are contextualized by the year they were created. This
experiece is a good example of synchronicity. It is completely possible
that Carlo and Tom have had the same idea in different times, but it is
necessary to set a historical precedent to understand the proximity
between both works, and Rhizome has the capability to do it.
Hope you are well,
yucef
