„next code “unfolds from a process of several years, is „work in progresses “, whereby constantly stations in the „analogue space“ get realized, which one finds documented in the Internet.
The category is called „art under net conditions “. Traditional art forms play by no means a smaller role in relation to the so-called „new media “, but are of basic importance.
„kultur.at: verein für medienkultur (an austrian association for medium culture) is in the context „new media“ one of the most formed culture initiatives of Austria.
In „next code “we link different disciplines, in order to follow to artistic, cultural and socialhistorical questions of Europe, in order to finally submit the results of these processes in lectures, exhibitions and actions. (Martin Krusche)

Sounds of science push the boundaries of art
Best known for exploring the code of life, DNA scientists are also challenging the frontier of art, with music transcribed from genes and proteins...
- Linda Long (on wikipedia), a biochemist-cum--musician and research fellow at Britain's University of Exeter.
- Paternity of DNA music can arguably be traced to Susumu Ohno (on wikipedia), a leading American scientist of Japanese descent... The problem: proteins have 20 amino acids, amounting to a two-and-a-half octave range that can make for jarring, unmelodic jumps.
- Writing in the latest issue of the journal Genome Biology, Rie Takahashi and Jeffrey Miller of the University of California, Los Angeles, gene2music project
- Dmitri Tymoczko, assist professor of music at Princeton University, told AFP.
- Michael Beckerman, chair of the department of music at New York University
- Gil Alterovitz, a research fellow at Harvard/MIT Divsion of Health Science and Technology ... Alterovitz said. "Being able to use this information and translate it into actionable sound/music to guide decision-making in real time -- that would be the Holy Grail."

Through his custom software, Schatz selectively records and displays video images culled from specific environments.
Most recently Schatz has created generative video works that collect, store and display more than eight years of video memory. From its start date each piece collects video from its environment daily, amassing thin slices of video/time. On-screen those slices overlap and juxtapose with images from current time. Like the human mind, past and present events wash over one another resulting in new possibilities and impossibilities.
Fresh Crop: Design Entrepreneurs
School of Visual Arts presents “Fresh Crop: Design Entrepreneurs,” an exhibition of socially and environmentally aware products developed by 19 students graduating from the MFA Design Department, also known as the Designer as Author program, at SVA.
The projects on view realize the potential of design in various forms--graphic, motion, Web and 3D--to be both commercially viable and culturally significant.
The exhibition is curated by Dorothy Twining Globus, an SVA faculty member, Museum of Arts & Design curator of exhibitions and independent curator.
The featured designers move beyond the traditional role of graphic designer in developing their original concepts to include market research, a brand strategy and a business plan. With such a comprehensive scheme for their products, these designers act as designer-entrepreneurs to explore how their ideas can positively influence society.
Many designers in the exhibition have built new tools for information and learning.
Products for hikers and backpackers by Shannon Lowers illustrate step-by-step instructions for “no-trace” techniques.
The Amazing Project is Randy Hunt online showcase of grassroots community-service projects that aim to change the world for the better.
Other online resources include Stop and Start Over by Lara McCormick, an interactive community providing support to young adults in drug and alcohol recovery programs;
Amanda Spielman's Bookfool, a resource for fiction recommendations based on such factors as readers’ moods, current events and geography;
and Sarah Foley 's Y'all Behave, an online etiquette guide.
Clement Wu ’s Killer Cantonese DVD aims to teach the language using Chinese gangster films. Jessica Jackson hopes to improve penmanship in this digital age with her Penwrite handwriting kits.
A number of the thesis projects on view involve a new take on personal accessories.
Elana Dweck 's line of pill cases that function as jewelry are both beautiful and practical. Julie Tinker's We the People line of apparel clad with Constitutional rights provides a new look at patriotic messages.
Jacqueline Schoeffel ’s type-patterned blankets, Lettura, are both comforting and visually expressive. Masood Ahmed presents Phat Kats, a line of collectible, erotic toys influenced by urban street trends and pop-culture icons.
A critical or historical look at visual culture is the approach taken by some designers. Naz Sahin documents Turkish culinary pleasures with stories, recipes and other tidbits in her book Lokma.
Darren Melchiorre examines the impact of album cover art from the 1940s to the present day in a proposed exhibition entitled Cover Culture.
Serifcan Ozcan creates an online resource for Turkish design with Biyografik.
Bekky Pollock offers Sift, a collection of patterns inspired by the piles, stacks and bundles found on the sidewalks of New York.
Games and fantasy are the basis for other projects. In Maria Delaguardia ’s online social strategy game, Smeared, players compete to win high school class elections. Ikonoki is a unique card game by Sharon Noh in which players learn about some differences and similarities between Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Thai cultures. Inspired by his childhood illustrations, Ryan Feerer takes us into the fantasy world known as Murkville via a CD and book compilation. And, finally, Turkish fairy tales are animated in stop-motion with puppets in Pelin Kirca's Three Curious Apples.

vedi anche MFA Computer Art Thesis Exhibition 2007
May 25 - June 9, 2007
School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents “MFA Computer Art Thesis Exhibition 2007,” bringing together selected thesis projects from MFA Computer Art Department students, curated by faculty member Russet Lederman.
This exhibition presents nearly 40 projects, including experimental linear video, networked media, video and visual music installation, non-narrative and narrative 3D animation, and interactive installation and performance. The artists use current technologies to explore their inner selves, the outer world and how their relationship to one another is mediated through technology. Together, the works of art demonstrate that the computer is more than a mere tool it is the means to an uncharted direction in art.
One such project is SuHong Hwang’s interactive installation and performance TYME, which explores the prospect of typographic forms based on the expression of the ephemeral nature of time in an interactive environment. TYME, whose title is derived from the combination of the words “type” and “time,” consists of three computational models representing one of the following unfixed qualities of type in a digital environment: emergence, change and disappearance. Through these three poetic type tools, Hwang invites the viewer to playfully convey messages with the same quality of emotion and perception more often found in the gestures and nuance of spoken language.
Anthony Mair ’s animation, Untitled, is a story of two characters who find themselves acting in a student film that lacks a story. Focusing on the premise that good character development is essential to make a successful story, Mair humorously demonstrates to his audience how to turn nothing into something. Another project is Te-Wen (Devon) Ting ’s Web site entitled Liao Zhai: The Flowing Desire. Inspired by the 17th century collection of Chinese ghost stories by Song-Ling Pu Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, Ting’s graphically rich interactive illustrations present a kaleidoscopic world overflowing with a multitude of obsessive and bizarre human desires.

Thessaloniki International Film Festival
7° International Festival on Movement and the Moving Image
Athens: 18-25 May
Thessaloniki: 18-24 May
Featuring live projects by: ZimmerFrei (IT), Free Piece of Tape (GR), GardenBox(GR), Andrea Dojmi & Port Royal (IT), Ge-Suk Yeo (KO), Novi_sad (GR), Joystick(ES), Opora (GR), Claudia Dias (PT), Sancho (GR), Mette Edvardsen(NO), Nightshift live (GR), Hiroaki Umeda - S20 (JP), The curators/ The erasers (GR)
And video-installations by: Dimitris Alithinos (GR), Coti (GR), Mette Edvardsen(NO), Alexandros Mistriotis (GR), Miranda Pennel (UK), Katerina Paskhalidou(GR), ZimmerFrei (IT)
As part of its annual activities, the Thessaloniki International Film Festival presentsthe 7th VideoDance festival, an international festival on movement and the moving image, the festival that brings together audiovisual media and the performing arts.
The 7th edition of VideoDance will be taking place in Athens and Thessaloniki.
Films, artists and groups from all over the world will bring audiences in touch with new, avant-garde ideas, projects, performances and experimentations.
VideoDance began in 2000 as an international festival of dance films. Now in its 7th year, it has become an acclaimed festival at the crossroads of cinema, live media and video installations. Artistic director of VideoDance is Christiana Galanopoulou.
This year, VideoDance will be inaugurating a new venue, the building at 112 Vassilisis Sophias Ave, across Mavili Square, with screenings of experimental films, performances, concerts and video installations.
Human entities: the political existence of people who make up the whole. What stories do they have for us? Three performers tell us their stories, each one of them representing a “scene” of contemporary dance that gives birth to new things:
Claudia Dias from Portugal; Mette Edvardsen who comes from Norway but is a member of Alain Platel’s Belgium-based Les Ballets C de la B; and Hiroaki Umeda from Japan. Andrea Dojmi tells a personal tale of lost innocence with his film, the screening of which will be accompanied by live music by the Italian band Port-Royal. Barcelona’s Joystick conjure up a game with the personal history of the obsessive filmmaker Mayo, and, in conjunction with Opora from Thessaloniki and ΚΙΝΕ from Athens, invite anyone with personal film footage in Super 8 or 16mm to bring it to the Festival on Sunday May 20, have it screened, and allow anyone who
wishes to film it with their digital cameras and make his or her own film. Against the backdrop of an Athenian square, the strange personal stories of a group of bizarre performers will be made into a film especially for the Festival by the Italian group ZimmerFrei , as part of their Panorama project. The film will be shown at the closing of the Festival to the accompaniment of a live soundtrack/concert by themselves and the Athenian band Free Piece of Tape. Tributes to experimental filmmakers (Yvonne Rainer, Teo Hernandez), the new films by Wim Vandekeybus and Alain Platel, as well as an exhibition of video installations that challenge time by dissecting it through immobility and interventions in the speed of the moving image:
all this and much more at VideoDance2007!

Leonardo is pleased to partner on re:place: The Second International Conference on the Histories of Media, Art, Science and Technology. Leonardo is publishing a book in the Leonardo Book Series and a series of articles in the Leonardo Journal that grew out of Refresh! the first conference which was also co-sponsored by Leonardo.We hope that this series of conferences will help build historical scholarship in the field as well as a place where pioneers and young practioners can meet.
[Per.[Form]], the four day Digital Art Weeks FESTIVAL highlights synergies between the arts and sciences in a series of related performances, making artists aware of impulses in technology development and scientists aware of the possibilities of the application of technology in the arts. Issues in media enhanced performance and its re-embodiment into the domains of hyper-reality are tangibly demonstrated showing how both performer and public can be virtually networked by the expansion of the real into virtual and back through interactivity.
[Kon.[Text]], the Digital Art Weeks SYMPOSIUM is concerned with the use of Performative Surround in the arts and the technology that drives it. Performative Surround pertains to the quality and quantity of immersion in performative artwork that uses electronic media enhancement to communicate in part or in whole that artwork's message to the viewer. Also, the symposium will explore how communication between both performer and public can be interactively networked in real time through various forms of computer-enhanced dialog within indoor and outdoor spaces.

Interactive Futures 07: CALL FOR PAPERS, PANELS, PERFORMANCES, & SCREENINGS
Interactive Futures: The New Screen
Nov. 15-19, 2007 - Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Part of the Victoria Independent Film and Video Festival (VIFVF)
Co-sponsored by Open Space Artist-Run Centre - http://www.openspace.ca /
2007 Theme: The New Screen
INTERACTIVE FUTURES is a forum for showing recent tendencies in new media as well as a conference for exploring issues related to technology. The theme of this year's event is The New Screen. IF07 will explore new forms of screen-based media from a diverse body of artists, theorists, writers, filmmakers, developers, and educators. Interactive visual environments, screen-based performances (with or without sound), new forms of narrative experiences, web-based environments, and innovative educational models will all be explored in The New Screen.
The development of tools and strategies for the presentation of screen-based environments has radically accelerated in the past few years. Artists and writers are exploring new ways of controlling narrative flow, formal structures, and ways of viewing. Immersive tools for experiencing visual environments have allowed artists to provide radically subjective experiences of visual surroundings and forms. With the introduction of interactivity, multi-screen environments, and media-rich web-based applications, a new era of performed, live, streaming and/or improvised media art is contributing to the creation of new modes for the screen that are distinct from older forms such as print, film or video art.
The New Screen will include installations, screenings and performances by visual artists, writers and performers. These practitioners are critiquing usual modes of visual interface, such as rectangular screens and determined techniques of interactivity. Interventionist strategies, public participation, experimental projection methods, and destabilizing interactive interfaces are some of the approaches that are used in their work. For IF07, leading Canadian and international artists, researchers, and educators working with screen-based media have been invited to present their work and to participate in the installation, performance, and panel events.
IF07 is seeking further papers, artists' presentations, performances and screenings related to the theme described above. Screenings may include demonstrations and/or documentation of screen-based, interactive and installation projects. Successful submissions will be selected for their critical, innovative and aesthetic tendencies.
Note: We are not currently soliciting proposals for installations as these have been filled by the invited artists listed below.
