E' targato Associazione Culturale Countdown MixedMedia, evento internazionale di new media art, architettura, sound e audiovisivi, che si terrà a Milano dal 25 al 28 maggio 2006 all’Hangar Bicocca, in presenza della spettacolare installazione I Sette Palazzi Celesti di Anselm Kiefer.
L’idea è di creare un evento ad edizioni dedicato alla divulgazione dei valori e dei contenuti della cultura del presente, accessibile al grande pubblico, attingendo da diverse sfere di azione denominate media art, architettura, sound e audiovisivi in cui la rassegna è stata suddivisa.
La sezione di Sound e Audiovisivi è curata da Marco Mancuso, direttore del progetto di cultura digitale e arti elettroniche Digicult e della rivista mensile di DigiMag che attraverso 3 serate incentrate su performance audiovisive elettroniche, fornirà una panoramica quanto più esaustiva possibile sulle pratiche di sperimentazione nei moderni live multimediali.
Fra gli artisti coinvolti, che si esibiranno nell’area stage dell’hangar prospicente le Torri di Kiefer, alcuni nomi quali Ulf Langheinrich (Granular Synthesis), Skoltz_Kolgen, Scanner, Edwin van der Heide, Addictive Tv, Suguru Goto, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Franko B, Purform, Eboman, Tez, Otolab e Echran.
Le quattro giornate dell'evento, attraverso mostre, incontri, seminari, concerti e ambienti visivi e sonori, vogliono quindi cercare di suggerire stimoli utili per stabilire percorsi e connessioni fra le parti, aiutando a individuare le modalità con cui il 'digitale' sta modificando le strutture culturali e le modalità percettive della società moderna.
curatori: Bibo Durio Consolo, Marco Mancuso, Maria Grazia Mattei, Gianluca Milesi, Silvio Mondino, Paolo Rigamonti
autori: Addictive Tv, Aether Architecture, AMO-OMA, Archi-Tectonics, Asymptote, Franko B, Jim Campbell, Alessandro Capozzo, DECOI, Dextro, Diller & Scoffidio, Eboman, Echran, Fabio Franchino, Massimiliano Fuksas, Suguru Goto, Granular Synthesis, Robert Hodgin, Lemur & Osman Khan, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Lia, Meta, Nox, Otolab, Purform, Françoise Roche, Scanner, Skoltz_Kolgen, Jared Tarbell, TeZ, Toxi, UN Studio, Edwin van der Heide

on 27 03 2001 restate superorganitsm was recovered.
The artist Judith Fegerl started doing new media projects in 1995 and co-founded the net art collective restate(.org) in 1997. Although deeply involved in net art and new media activism she never lost contact to the traditional fine arts. 2002 she left the collective and returned to her roots to develop a series of sculptural and installation works, that combine her knowledge of new media strategies and her passion for hightech equipment with the original idea of an auratic artwork. Her work is refered to represent the missing link between new media art and the classic contemporary approach. She is working with a widespread range of material. She wonâ¤(TM)t stick to just one medium but is always searching for new ways to express herself. She reconstructs her own processes of perception and experience and translates them into a poetic language of reduced technical sculpture and installation for the audience to reexperience.
With her series called â¤½sensation capsulesâ¤? she installs technical environments leading the spectator to experience determined and perceptible stimuli and to expose to provoked feelings.
She successfully combines sensitive sculptural work and a scientific approach.The work itself involves not only construction and installation but also the sensual reaction of the audience.
2004 she did her diploma (MA) at her University of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria at the masterclass of Peter Weibel. Additionally she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and at the University of Economics.

The Nanomandala is an installation by media artist Victoria Vesna, in collaboration with nanoscience pioneer James Gimzewski.
The installation consists of a video projected onto a disk of sand, 8 feet in diameter. Visitors can touch the sand as images are projected in evolving scale from the molecular structure of a single grain of sand - achieved my means of a scanning electron microscope (SEM)- to the recognizable image of the complete mandala, and then back again.
Cosa dicono all'estero di Berlusconi ?
"... At home Berlusconi infamously said that Italians who did not vote for him were coglioni (literally "testicles", but used as "dickheads" or "schmucks")."

""" - Tensions...
Things are not good in Baghdad.
There was an explosion this morning in a mosque in Samarra, a largely Sunni town. While the mosque is sacred to both Sunnis and Shia, it is considered one of the most important Shia visiting places in Iraq. Samarra is considered a sacred city by many Muslims and historians because it was made the capital of the Abassid Empire, after Baghdad, by the Abassid Caliph Al-Mu’tasim.
The name “Samarra” is actually derived from the phrase in Arabic “Sarre men ra’a” which translates to “A joy for all who see”. This is what the city was named by Al-Mu’tasim when he laid the plans for a city that was to compete with the greatest cities of the time- it was to be a joy for all who saw it. It remained the capital of the Abassid Empire for nearly sixty years and even after the capital was Baghdad once again, Samarra flourished under the care of various Caliphs...

Here we are in the first days of 2006. What does the ‘6’ symbolize? How about- 6 hours of no electricity for every one hour of electricity? Or… 6 hours of waiting in line for gasoline that is three times as expensive as it was in 2005? Or an average of six explosions per day near our area alone?

In 'Petit Mal' the media artist Simon Penny has created an interactive robot that doesn't have a useful function per se. This charming machine appears to be the diametric opposite of a hi-tech robot: it moves around light-footedly on the two wheels of a bicycle. Penny is interested in the emotional aspects of our relationship with machines, and in the cultural effects of research and development in the field of 'artificial life'. 'Petit mal' is a term borrowed from neuropsychology, and stands for a momentary loss of control. In a subtle way, this criticises the control paradigm and social application of computer technology, in that visitors to the exhibition are confronted with an elaborate machine entity that appears, like a young animal, to desire nothing more than harmless and playful contact. Petit Mal was conceived in 1989. Building and development occurred 1992-95. The robot was damaged during exhibition in Sheffield in 1998. In summer 2005 work began on resurrecting it for transmediale 2006.
