The good news just keeps on coming I may turn into a preacher. ;-)

NYFA (The New York Foundation for the Arts) has an interesting online magazine called NYFA Current.
http://nyfa.org

Their magazine features refreshingly straight talk about art and artists’ projects. Short, sweet and eminently readable, they asked me to write a piece for their Rants & Raves section.
http://www.nyfa.org/level3.asp?id=476&fid=6&sid=17 the piece will only be up for two weeks.

HALLIBURTON SOLVES GLOBAL WARMING SurvivaBalls save managers from abrupt climate change

An advanced new technology will keep corporate managers safe even when climate change makes life as we know it impossible.

"The SurvivaBall is designed to protect the corporate manager no matter what Mother Nature throws his or her way," said Fred Wolf, a Halliburton representative who spoke today at the Catastrophic Loss conference held at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Amelia Island, Florida. "This technology is the only rational response to abrupt climate change," he said to an attentive and appreciative audience.

Max Payne Cheats Only: Demo and Q&A
Wednesday, May 10, 2006
6:30 pm
Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)
535 West 22nd Street, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

EAI and Rhizome present renowned digital artists jodi.org in a rare public demonstration of their latest video game modifications, Max Payne Cheats Only. The work is a series of "cheats": alterations to the behavior of a video game that are often built in by the original programmers to help players who have reached an impasse. jodi.org has compiled cheats from the ultra-violent New York vigilante game, Max Payne. Their live demonstration will be followed by an in-depth discussion and question and answer session hosted by media art curator Caitlin Jones.

Digit Media Festival call

categories:

I've been involved with this for a couple of years. It started out as a a film festival but I've been pushing to turn it into a new media festival. For the film festival you have to send in your video with a 25 dollar fee. There's also a call for new media proposals which is free. The cool events will be at the Roebling Bridge for sound art and Bethel Woods Art Center (the old woodstock hippie site). we're calling this Podstock.

http://nujus.net:8000/locus/perfLS0406.mp4 I'm trying to get Locus Sonus over here for the Digit Festival in August.
