Sinister Social Networks by Joachim Desarmenien
Sinster [http://www.sinister-network.com/] is a project by Cassandra Rand (Founder and CEO), Georgia N. Underwood (CTO), and artist Annina Rüst (Relations Representative). Sinister plays with social network theories, methods, and tools to provide fake interpretations of the patterns that issue from senseless message exchanges.
Cassandra Rand was introduced to technology early, as her parents are researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratories. She studied at TRV University [http://www.trvuniversity.com/], worked for Psi Tech, [http://www.psitech.net/] and finally decided to use her abilities to discover malicious friends, a factor that undoubtedly lead her to found Sinister.
In establishing Sinister, Cassandra Rand associated herself with Georgia N. Underwood, a self-taught programmer and a big user of social software, and Annina Rüst [http://www.trash.net/~aruest], whose artistic sensibilities include projects similar to this collaboration, such as supervilainizer. [http://www.supervillainizer.ch/]
The three of them have based Sinister’s forum on traditional online social networks, such as Friendster [http://www.friendster.com]. But, where Friendster offers tools to connect with friends and socialize with new acquaintances, Sinister offers the same tools, but tweaks the proposed intensions of sought interaction by providing users with the opportunity to connect with a new type of social organization and create alliances via sinister and anti-social networks.

Distributed Performance & Live Event.
A BBC & Arts Council England's Private View commission.
September 2005 - April 2006
In a scenario where data, stored in peer-to-peer networked computer systems - under threat from hacks, crashes, viruses and legal constraint - takes flight back into the human body. Participants, engaged through a local publicity campaign, workshops and a large-scale live event, become part of a distributed performance of walking and memorizing.Volunteers attempt to memorize a chosen piece of music, film, tv programme, play or book; through a process of walking, memorizing, remembering and reciting, they each attempt to 'become' their favourite 'media asset'; support is given to them through a series of theatre workshops and website; a number of volunteers record their progress as 'video diaries', made available online; at a large-scale public event all volunteers congregate to recite their chosen piece while wandering together, en masse – a re-creation of the final scenes of Truffaut's Fahrenheit 451.Charade is a new work by Simon Pope (http://www.ambulantscience.org/) and is produced in partnership with Capital Art Projects, (http://www.capitalartprojects.org.uk/).

Video delivery over the Internet will push traffic growth rates by 300 to 500 percent, Cisco chief executive John Chambers said at the company's annual World Wide Analyst Conference in Santa Clara, California.
Service providers in Japan are already experiencing such growth rates, as they have started experimenting with Internet television services. Europe and North America grow at an annual rate of about 100 percent, Chambers said.
The increase in network traffic is sparked not only by the move to high definition broadcast signals, but by the addition of new services.
"All television will be broadcast over the Internet. [At sports games] they will not have one camera angle but 40 camera angles. You can watch the game from any angle you want," explained Chambers.
Broadcasters in the future will also add communication features that allow users to set up a video conference with friends and family and watch a game together or exchange messages about a show they are watching together.
The new services will force television to evolve from delivering plain data to becoming interactive. But this will make it hard for network equipment vendors such as Cisco to deliver the right solutions.
"Video is an art, not a science. Making it work is really, really difficult," Chambers warned.

A group of internationally renowned media artists brings surreal, poetic and thought-provoking installation environments to Manchester, that invite you to explore the ways we now communicate with each other and with technology.
"An interactive show that has subtly, smart humour, solid content and sheer effort" City Life
Museum of Science and Industry 1830 Warehouse, Castlefield, Liverpool Road, Manchester 10.00 am - 5.00 pm
Every dayAdmission Free
List of participating artists:
Susan Collins UK spectrascope
Paul DeMarinis USA
Ken Goldberg, USA
Paul Sermon, UK
Cornelia Sollfrank, Germany
Tan Teck Weng, Malaysia/Australia
Andrea Zapp, Germany/UK (installation soundtrack by Vini Reilly)
Interactive Audience Performance at the opening with Electroboutique, Moscow
The technical nature of the art works becomes invisible and instead they challenge the audience to take part in interactive scenarios, unexpected stories and impromptu visual dialogues. The projects examine our life in media culture and a digitised society: by linking the physical installation to the digital space and vice versa – within extraordinary models of art and networking that encourage the viewers’ very own creative input.
The exhibition is curated by Andrea Zapp; born in Germany, and currently based in Manchester as a Senior Lecturer, media artist and theorist at Manchester Metropolitan University. Next to her art installation projects she has published several books, including publications with The British Film Institute, The German ZKM Centre for Art and Media and most recently with FACT/MMU - on media art, interactivity and networking.
Camere/Chambers --Sol LewittJannis KounellisFranz West
CAMERE/CHAMBERS opens on Wednesday, December 7, 2005, at 7 p.m., in the premises of RAM, RadioArteMobile (www.radioartemobile.it ). It is a all-round event that brings together installations by the artists Jannis Kounellis, Sol Lewitt and Franz West; with different sound experiences in the headquarters of the Sound Art Museum www.soundartmuseum.net
Kounellis surprises the public applying signs of paint on a mountain of fabrics; Sol Lewitt mimes the outline of the Swiss mountain peaks with the primary colors that have always characterized his wall drawings, letting that Alvin Lucier’s rarefied musical works spread all over the place; Franz West and Tamuna Sirbiladze inhabit the space with slight re-interpretations of interior decoration; they are accompanied by a music of Philip Quehenberger (performed live by two artists), that almost reaches a clamour sound.Each artist uses its own “Chamber” as the place to get a concentrated assertion of identity; and at the same time it is also the instrument of a larger concert that suggests a smooth coexistence- quality of the chamber concerts- as a relevant tradition reminded by the opening texts by Daniele Pieroni and Riccardo Giagni.During the opening, from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m., a live radio broadcast (on the website www.radioartemobile.it selecting RAM Live) presented by Riccardo Giagni and Daniele Pieroni will take place. It gives voice to all the artists participating in the exposition as well as to Corrado Bologna, Franco Fabbri, Cesare Pietroiusti and Emanuele Trevi. It is an opportunity to stimulate artists, men of letters and students, to think about the underlying subject of the event: the relation between sound and space, between “chamber” and communication, between image and resonance.For this occasion Alberto Garutti, creates a radio location made by a table and some chairs that light up in the shadow, almost to highlight the enchanted atmosphere of the resonance itself and the peculiarity of the event.
