A biweekly newsletter about artnetweb
This newsletter is available on our website:
Greetings from artnetweb:
We're no Fred Astaire but couldn't say no when Adrianne
Wortzel asked "Shall We Dance" last Friday afternoon from
the ISEA Conference in Rotterdam via CuSeeMe. A bevy of
New York wallflowers crowded into the Pseudo Online studios
to digitally tango with a panel at the conference as well
as the MUU Media Lab in Helsinki, the Vancouver Film School,
the University of Iowa and the Cooper Union and Lehman
College in New York. Our end included Matthew Drutt of the
Guggenheim, Creative Time's Carol Stakemas, Remo Campopiano
and artists Ebon Fisher, Heather Wagner, Peter Sinclair,
Hafsa Ibrahim and Jeff Gompertz. Even Josh Harris, head
honcho of Pseudo, dropped by for a twirl. GH Hovagimyan and
Robbin Murphy were the Art Dirt chaperons with the help of
Galinsky, Dan, Janice and the whole Pseudo crew.
We didn't know quite what to do at first as the various
locations appeared in their little CuSeeMe windows. But
improvisation quickly took over and a web jam soon got cooking.
By the end of the two hours everyone felt energized by a
sensation of global connectivity that was both familiar and
entirely new. We can't explain what happened but we all
agree we're looking forward to the next "Dance."

artnetweb has teamed with the giant Amazon.com to open
our own online bookstore. Yes, we admit it, we still read
ink smeared on smashed trees. If you have favorite books you
think others should know about send the title, author and
a short reason why you like it and we'll put it on the shelf
(if it's available through Amazon -- they have millions
of books so it probably is).
A simple version of the site is up now and will grow as we
find out what people are interested in. Reach it through the
READINGS section or go directly to:
