Google Maps… The sky too


View Larger Map

Google has just added an excellent new embed feature
to Google Maps allowing you to copy and paste interactive maps into
your website or blog posts. You can even customize the size and preview
the map before you add the embed code.

Starting today, Google Maps users can add a map to their
website or blog just by copying & pasting a snippet of HTML. This
new functionality enables Google Maps users to share and disseminate
geographic information in the same way that YouTube users share videos.
Bloggers and webmasters no longer need an API key or knowledge of Java
Script to put a Google Map on their website or blog.

Prague


We are preparing two-week long workshop series (24.8.-7.9.2007),
theme for this year (as well as other years) is collaboration and
experimentation.

The event is organised by people from Bratislava, Brno, Prague,
Budapest and there is a quite varied program. Most of the workshops
are 1-5 day long and will lead to final performance or other kind
of output. Contentwise, neither spacelike the possibilities are not
markedly limited. Summer Open Academy will take place in a post-industrial
area nearby holiday resort and lake Zlate piesky (Golden Sands) where two
maintained and one smaller unmaintained building are situated, given at
disposal by Tranzit initiative during the workshops. The largest building
consisting of four halls serves as a contemporary art gallery, another
two-story building houses a number of small artists’ ateliers.

Idea of the project is meeting of students, graduates and teachers

We live … It dies…

We live in a period where art, as the former monopolist of the 
representative image, has abandoned this representative obligation. 
Yet science, in contrast, fully embraces the options which technical 
machine-based images offer for the representation of reality. Therefore, 
it could be the case that mankind will find the images of science more 
necessary than the images of art. To be able to maintain its significance 
up against the sciences and their picture-producing procedures, art 
must look for a position beyond the crisis of representation and beyond 
the image wars. If art does not do this, which I believe it will, (See Badiou’s 15 on art)
Art, as opposed to Matt who sits before your door will become useless to the state,
 and by doing so will become more important to the ego centred subject.
(i.e. piss ant asinine artist who are nothing more than clever)

Grant Opportunity For Arts Writers


The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program

Apply online starting: August 6, 2007

Deadline: September 12, 2007

http://www.artswriters.org





Initiated by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and administered by Creative Capital, the Arts Writers Grant is a three-year pilot program designed to support critical writing on contemporary visual art through project-based grants issued directly to individual authors. The first program of its type, it was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. Through awards for books, articles, short-form writing, and work in new and alternative media, the Arts Writers Grant aims to honor and encourage:

– Writing about art that is rigorous, passionate, eloquent, and precise

– Writing about contemporary art in which a keen engagement with the present is infused with an appreciation of the historical

– Writing about art that is neither afraid to take a stand, nor content to deliver authoritative pronouncements, but serves rather to pose questions and to generate new possibilities for thinking about, seeing, and making art

– Writing about art that is sensitive to both the importance and difficulty of situating aesthetic objects within their broader social and political contexts

– Writing about art that does not dilute or sidestep complex ideas but renders accessible their meaning and value

– Writing about art that challenges creatively the limits of existing conventions, without valorizing novelty as an end in itself


Approximately fifteen to twenty grants will be awarded per annual cycle, ranging from $3,000-$50,000. Art historians, artists, critics, curators, journalists, and practitioners from other fields that engage contemporary visual art are welcome to apply.

The Arts Writers Grant will open for on-line submissions on August 6, 2007. The deadline for grant applications is September 12, 2007.

For more information, please visit http://www.artswriters.org




The call for applications is open to all artists of all nationalities. Application forms, criteria and more information are available at http://www.kuenstlerstaette-bleckede.de

Research Residencies and other stuff

Rhizome.org 2006-2007 Net Art Commissions 
The Rhizome Commissioning Program makes financial support available to artists for the creation of innovative new media art work via panel-awarded commissions. 

For the 2006-2007 Rhizome Commissions, eleven artists/groups were selected to create original works of net art. 

The Rhizome Commissions Program is made possible by support from the Jerome Foundation in celebration of the Jerome Hill Centennial, the Greenwall Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support has been provided by members of the Rhizome community. 

Rhizome 2008 Commissions Announced!
This year, eleven emerging artists/ collectives were awarded commissions in support of new works of Internet-based art. The projects include distributed sound experiments, visually compelling interactive images that blend the sublime and the ridiculous, and pioneering applications that encourage the flowering of creativity across commercial areas of the web. Follow the link below for descriptions of and links to the eleven winning proposals, which also includes our first-ever Community Award, a project designed to enhance participation and communication on Rhizome.

The Rhizome Commissions program is supported, in part, by funds from the Greenwall Foundation, the Jerome Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support is provided by generous individuals and Rhizome Members.

“Beyond Boundaries” — The push and pull of change in the academic environment is the subject of the fifth annual International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAa) Conference.

It’s about connecting — beyond traditional technologies, beyond disciplines, beyond divisions, beyond institutions, and beyond geography. In digital media, communications and art we connect beyond these boundaries every day. This conference is the opportunity to discuss and explore how these connections affect our research, our practice, our pedagogy, and our curriculum. What is the significance of boundaries in a digital world?

iDMAa (http://www.idmaa.org/) welcomes academics, artists, designers, and industry representatives to participate in various conference activities. The conference schedule includes: refereed paper discussions, topical breakout sessions, a juried exhibition, a program showcase and several keynote speakers who are leaders in the digital field. The conference will take place November 8th through 10th in the Old City area of Philadelphia and is hosted by La Salle University.

Eyebeam you scream…


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.

Application Requirements
Applications received after the deadline of August 6, 2007, will not be accepted. All applications and work samples must be submitted through the online form. No exceptions will be made. You can create a user/password during the application process and log back into the server to update your application before the final deadline.
Complete applications must include the following information:
* Contact Information
* Resume or CV (rtf or pdf doc)
* Work samples in the form of URLs or uploaded media
o Include a project description with your work sample that explains your contribution to the piece, how it was meant to be viewed and how it relates to your proposed project(s).
* Concise responses to all application questions

Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Please read the guidelines for each of the Fellowships carefully. Each working environment has different sets of tools and different mentors/trainers for these tools, so applicants should consider which environment will best suit their own needs and experience. However, all artists, technologists and residents have access to resources across all three labs and programs.

If you have any questions, please email fellowshipinfo@eyebeam.org.
