Thought I'd do a quick mention of some new posts on the blog, as some
were sparked by interesting ADA discussions...

THIS WEEK IN THE PELORUS TRUST MEDIAGALLERY
Thursday 9th August, 5.30pm
Opening Celebration - This is not a family album
You are invited to attend the opening celebration of This is not a
family album, an installation by Kathy Dudding.
This is not a family album is an installation which explores the
relationship between image and text. One group of monitors displays
images selected from home movies shot in the 1950-60s, while another
cluster relays short typewritten narratives. The home movies are
dreamscapes; happy images of happy families. Conversely, each of the
texts relate a traumatic event. The footage in This is not a family
album is drawn from Dudding’s own archive of found film, while some
films were purchased on the Trade Me website or in foreign locales
including a second-hand Catholic shop in Rome. The text has
previously been published as a piece of experimental writing in the
Saturday 11th August International Home Movie Day, 5.00pm KOHA
August 11 marks International Home Movie Day, an annual event started
in 2002 by a group of film archivists concerned about what would
happen to all the home movies shot on film during the 20th century.
In celebration of International Home Movie Day the New Zealand Film
Archive presents home movie treasures from it’s amateur collection,
a live soundtrack performance by DJ Alphabethead and a talk by NZFA
Cataloguer Kathy Dudding on experimental amateur film making.
Featuring films by George Eiby, Kelly Tarlton and more. Entry by KOHA.

Thought some of you might be interested in our latest show, which
opens Thursday, with the online project extending throughout the
month. William Boling, a US based artist, is running a series of
auctions on TradeMe using source imagery from the site and it's
counterpart, eBay. See more info and links below.
WINDOW onsite presents "Best Wishes Jason Rhoades" by Martyn Reynolds
Opening Thursday 9 August 2007 at 6pm
Jason Rhoades is dead. For many of us, this has been a hard thing to
come to grips with, not least Martyn Reynolds. When the shadow cast by
one's idol is no longer bound by the body of its owner, how does one
continue to imagine their work? Indeed, is the work of an artist like
Jason Rhoades even possible without the force of his living presence
in the world? With R & R Sport, Switched On Gardener and Blue Fitness
as his support network, Martyn attempts to come to grips with the
untimely loss of one of the art world's leading lights. As a means of
addressing such a rupture in the circuit, Martyn creates an elusive
temporal logic; a vague but coherent system which emerges from within
the mechanics of
sponsored fitness equipment and a hydroponic grow-lamp.
WINDOW Online presents "You Ain't Wrong" by William Boling
Bid live on TradeMe or view page at http://www.window.auckland.ac.nz
There are currently 954,837 items for sale on TradeMe. With few
exceptions these transactions were supported by digital images created
by amateurs to promote the sell. This month at Window, Atlanta based
artist William Boling stages a multi part online project centering
around the ubiquitous auction website. Boling has found, paired, and
photographed a series of objects from both eBay and TradeMe that
harmonize with or repell each other - "20 Teat Feeding Bin" or a
"Dinky Toys No. 692 5.5 medium gun". He'll be auctioning these
diptychs over the next week, culminating in a winning bid on Opening
night. The user feedback, screens, and media from this process will be
compiled into 3 books, which Boling will sell at a second auction
later in the month.
The exhibition runs 9 August – 8 September 2007

The 'Rencontres Internationales' offer more than a simple presentation
of the works. They introduce an intercultural forum gathering various
guests from all over the world - artists and filmmakers, institutions
and emerging organisations - to testify of the vivacity of creation and
its distribution, but also of the artistic and cultural contexts that
often are experiencing deep changes. The festival reflects specificities
and crossings of art practices between new cinema and contemporary art,
explores media art practices and their critical purposes, and work out
this necessary time when points of view meet and are exchanged.
The festival aims at presenting those works to a broad audience, at
creating circulations between different art practices and between
different audiences, as well as creating new exchanges between artists,
filmmakers and professionals. The 'Rencontres Internationales
Paris/Berlin/Madrid', an event without competition, are supported by
French, German, Spanish and international cultural institutions.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SPREAD OUT THIS PIECE OF INFORMATION to creative
organizations, art networks, production companies, artists and
filmmakers you are in contact with.

> Eyebeam Fellowships
> Overview of Eyebeam Fellowships
> The application process for Eyebeam's 2007/08 Fellowship program is
> currently open. The deadline for applications is August 6, 2007.
> All applicants will be informed of their application status by
> October 1, 2007. The program duration is for 11 months, running
> from November to September.
> Fellowships will be offered in the R&D OpenLab, the Production Lab
> and the Education Lab. The focus of the Fellowships varies
> depending on the tools and skills available and the creative
> objectives and philosophy of each Lab. Up to five Fellowships will
> be granted for 2007/08.
> For all of the Fellowships we are seeking applications from
> artists, hackers, designers, engineers and creative technologists
> to come to Eyebeam for a year to undertake new research and develop
> new work. The ideal Fellow has experience working with and making
> innovative technological art and/or creative technology projects
> and has a passion for collaborative development. Fellows will bring
> this experience and working approach to their own independent
> projects, projects initiated by other Residents or Fellows and
> projects conceived collaboratively during the Fellowship period.
> Fellows are selected from an open call. International applicants
> are welcome to apply although we do not have the resources to
> provide travel or accommodation. We are happy to work with selected
> applicants, where required, to help them to secure funds to cover
> these expenses. International Fellows are responsible for securing
> their own visas for the Fellowship period.
> Fellows receive a $30,000 stipend and health benefits during their
> stay. They are able to take on additional external teaching or
> consulting work, but there is an expectation that Fellows will be
> working at Eyebeam a minimum of four days a week.
> Collaborative partnerships at Eyebeam will be fostered though group
> critiques, discussions and projects, within and between the lab
> environments and residency programs. Fellows also benefit from
> critiques, lectures and workshops by external practitioners chosen
> for their relationship to subjects and projects being worked on in
> the Labs.
> All Fellows are encouraged to share their skills and knowledge with
> the larger Eyebeam community by conducting formal and/or informal
> workshops with others in the Labs as well as possible workshops
> open to the public. There are also opportunities to develop work
> for performance, events, seminars, exhibition or other public
> programming in the Eyebeam galleries (and beyond) during the term
> of the fellowship.
> Core to our principle at Eyebeam is the brokering of relationships
> between artists, hackers, coders, engineers and other creative
> technologists and the contexts we provide. The intention is to
> foster and facilitate relationships whereby technologists and
> artists can come together to germinate and hothouse their ideas,
> develop new processes and create new works through a period of
> immersion in a social context which is rich in technology,
> expertise and ideas.
> Research Themes
> We also support research groups to bring together creative
> practitioners working at Eyebeam as well as expert external
> participants. New research leads to possible public outcomes
> including seminars, public discussion and exhibition.
> Research themes for 2007/08 include (though will not be limited to):
> * Energy, Technology and Sustainability
> * Urban research, urban interventions and media in public space
> Artists and creative technologists interested in these research
> areas are particularly encouraged to apply for 2007/08 Fellowships.

> However, all artists, technologists and residents have access to
> resources across all three labs and programs.
