3. Diane Ludin, FF Alumn, presents Kingdom of Piracy at Ars Electronica and online.

Kingdom of Piracy <KOP>
Online Project
Premiere: Ars Electronica, September 7-12,2002.
http://www.aec.at/kop
Joint Curation: Shu Lea Cheang, Armin Medosch, Yukiko Shikata

Kingdom of Piracy <KOP> is an online, open work space to explore the free sharing of digital content - often condemned as piracy - as the net's ultimate art form. Commissioned by the Acer Digital Art Center [ADAC] in Taiwan for ArtFuture 2002, <KOP> was designed to include links, objects, ideas, software, commissioned artists' projects, critical writing and online streaming media events. Hailed as the first international online exhibition sponsored by Taiwan's computer giant Acer Group, a pilot website <kop.adac.com.tw> was launched in December 2001 and presented with a press conference at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipai, Taiwan.

In April 2002 the leadership and direction of ADAC changed. At about the same time a major anti-piracy initiative was launched in Taiwan. <KOP> became a politically sensitive issue in Taiwan and by May, the curatorial and artists' FTP access to the <KOP> server was denied. By mid-June, <kop.adac.com.tw> was taken offline. ADAC demanded editorial rights to artists' links and requested a change of the title, Kingdom of Piracy. The joint curatorial team rejected this demand and sought ways of preserving the project as both a Taiwanese initiative and an International online art project. Through the efforts of ADAC's former director Ray Wang, <KOP> server access at ADAC was resumed. However, an IP address 211.73.224.150 was assigned, the use of the domain name is denied.

<KOP> will now be premiered at Ars Electronica, September 7-12,2002

4. Norm Magnusson, FF alum responds to the past 12 months in "After the 11th" at Bridgewater Fine Arts Gallery - Sep 10-October 31

In "After the 11th," I've identified the emotional and intellectual states I've gone through since Sept. 11, 2001 and have created a piece of art corresponding to each. There are 45 pieces in all, beginning with Disbelief and Admiration of bravery, and ending with the Feeling that things will be okay, Dread, and Nostalgia. An enormous ransom note from terrorists represents Violation. For Resentment, I created a noose from nearly 200 U.S. dollar bills, and for The Willingness to trade civil liberties for protection there is a gas mask made from parchment reproductions of The Constitution and The Bill of Rights. The largest piece in the show will be Magnitude of loss, two 60 foot long coat racks upon which will hang 2,819 empty hangers.

Visitors to the exhibition will be invited to write the name of one of the victims on a claim check and hang it on a hanger, keeping the claim stub as their own remembrance. Donations for participation in this will be requested and given to a fund benefitting children who lost a parent in the tragedy."

BridgewaterFineArts will be located at 70 Wooster St., between Spring and Broome for September and October, 2002.

GARLIC=RICH AIR is the second and third phase of "St(r)eaming the Fields",a field harvesting and public network project, conceived by Shu Lea Cheangwith funding from the "Challenge to the Field" award of Lyn Blumenthal Memorial Fund for Independent Media.

In a fictional "After the crash" scenario, organic garlic is recently ordained as new social currency, serving as "credito" for the global shared network in common exchange. 10,000 garlic plants cultivated by organic farmer, Tovey Hallec, in the span of 10 years in upstate New York, were harvested by crew hands this summer.

On September 27, 28, 29, a designer truck flaunting loads of garlic and wireless technology, will serve as mobile urban farm stand and claim selected New York City wireless network nodes for online and onsite street trading activities. Members of online credito trueque club are invited to exchange their virtual garlic with edible organic garlic at the designated truck posts. Members of the public are invited to participate in garlic trading with their own offers.
