About Wireless Park Lab Days
On September 19 & 20, 2003, NYCwireless and the Downtown Alliance will co-sponsor Wireless Park Lab Days, a two-day event that announces the availability of open wireless (Wi-Fi) networks in Lower Manhattan and explores their implications for art, community, and shared space. Produced by Dana Spiegel of NYCwireless, and artists Brooke Singer and Yury Gitman, Wireless Park Lab Days will be held in City Hall Park, the most popular "hotspot" in the Lower Manhattan Wireless Network, each day from 12 noon to 4 pm.

The Lower Manhattan Wireless Network is the latest victory for the wireless community movement, a group of volunteers who work with local organizations to construct a network of computers to share Internet access over radio connections. Through these efforts, public spaces become equipped with community-owned and open wireless hotspots, deterring pay providers from staking claims. In addition to establishing open nodes in public spaces, the wireless community is interested in how a wireless network affects the physical space and how urban Wi-Fi users may influence the notions of cyberspace when it becomes grounded in a specific location.

This two-day event embraces this spirit of the wireless community movement by hosting an exhibition of new wireless art, a "new user" area designed to help people become acquainted with the technology, and an engaging round of NodeRunner, the critically acclaimed wireless scavenger hunt that was recently awarded an Arts Electronica Golden Nica. The wireless art exhibition will include a wide-range of projects and many of the producers will be at the event to discuss their work. The new user area will be staffed with experts in wireless computing from NYCwireless who will help visitors get online and better understand the technology. Wireless Park Lab Days will end on Saturday with a fun, group game of NodeRunner. Game starts at 1:00 pm on Saturday from City Hall Park, so bring your running shoes!

3. Tom Trusky, FF Alumn, & Idaho Center for the Book, release Author Card Game

Boise State's Idaho Center For The Book Releases Author Card Game

What Idaho author once served as a Parma city councilman--before he wrote Tarzan? What Nobel Prize-winner had a cat named Boise? What filmmaker was also noted for her critically acclaimed novel?

The answers to these (Edgar Rice Burroughs, Ernest Hemingway and Nell Shipman) and other questions are found in a new version of the classic card game Authors, updated and customized for the Gem State. Idaho Authors was created by the Idaho Center for the Book, an affiliate of the Library of Congress housed at Boise State University. Cards sell for $9.95 a set and are available at the Boise State Bookstore, www.boisestatebooks.com (click on "general books"). For further images, see the ICB site, www.lili.org/icb.

Featuring 11 writers who were born or maintained residences in Idaho, the card game is played much like the original Authors. Interesting facts about authors are listed on sets of four cards, and players attempt to match up the most sets, or "books." By reading the cards, players will discover that: Boisean Glenn Balch (1902-1989) was a prolific writer of adventure stories targeted primarily at teen-age boys. His book Indian Paint was made into a feature film starring Jay Silverheels (who played Tonto in The Lone Ranger) and Johnny Crawford (from the TV series Rifleman). Carol Ryrie Brink (1895-1981) based the heroine of her Newbery Medal-winning novel Caddie Woodlawn on her grandmother's pioneer experiences. Brink was an Idaho native from Moscow. Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) worked on a ranch in Raft River Valley, operated a stationery store in Pocatello, was a gold dredge operator in the Stanley basin and was a city councilman in Parma before writing Tarzan of the Apes. Vardis Fisher (1895-1968), born in Annis in eastern Idaho, penned the novel that inspired the Robert Redford film Jeremiah Johnson. Fisher later lived in Hagerman and was a former teacher at the College of Idaho (now Albertson College) in Caldwell. Mary Hallock Foote (1847-1938) was as well known for her illustrations as for her writing, which focused on Coeur d'Alene. She is best known today as the central character in Wallace Stegner's prize-winning novel, Angle of Repose. Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) wrote much of his novel For Whom the Bell Tolls in Sun Valley and had a cat named Boise. He and his wife Mary were living in Ketchum when he died. The wallpaper pattern from poet Ezra Pound's (1895-1972) home in Hailey is used to back each card in the deck. Pound was one of the 20th century's most controversial poets. Grace Jordan (1892-1985) felt parents should provide opportunities for hardships for their children, so she did. She wrote about many of her family's adventures in Hell's Canyon, near their home in Grangeville. She was married to Idaho Gov. Len Jordan. Nell Shipman (1892-1970) made several films from her wilderness film studio on the shores of North Idaho's Priest Lake in the 1920s. She later published Abandoned Trails, a thinly fictionalized novel of her Idaho experiences. Edward Elmer Smith (1890-1965) helped create the science fiction genre of writing. His interest in extra-terrestrial activity began at the University of Idaho, where he received a chemical engineering degree in 1914. Steven Spielberg is said to have been inspired by Smith's writing when scripting the film Star Wars. James Floyd Stevens (1892-1971), raised and educated in Weiser, not only penned Paul Bunyan, he's also noted for the literary manifesto Status Rerum, co-authored with H.L. Davis. Boise State designer Kathy Robinson created the colored renderings of the artists used on the cards.

6. Matthew Geller, FF Alumn, Foggy Day, on Cortlandt Alley, Manhattan, Oct. 3-Nov. 14

Beginning Friday, October 3rd at 5:00 pm and running [Tuesday - Sunday] through November 14th, 2003, New York artist Matthew Geller presents a temporary, open-air installation work titled Foggy Day. At selected times of the day, a section of Cortlandt Alley between White and Walker Streets will be shrouded in fog, in a kind of urban earthwork enhancing various features of this picturesquely gritty downtown canyon. Running parallel to the sidewalk about eighteen feet above the street, a series of fine spray nozzles on a pipe bolted to a building will create a regular pea-souper that grows and dissipates as wind and weather conditions change. Cortlandt Alley, overlooked by Geller's studio, is "a spot beloved by West Coast movie makers for its stark narrow height, fire escapes, abandoned loading docks, [and] shuttered iron doors," as journalist Pete Hamill once noted. It has served as a location for countless film and photo shoots, including Law and Order, the Michael Douglas/Brittany Murphy suspenser Don't Say a Word, a Harley Davidson advertising spread, and an AC/DC video. Unlike a film shoot, which strives for stark realism, Geller's installation exaggerates and calls attention to selected aspects of the locale. Translucent rubber puddles on the sidewalk will mimic the puddles created by the dripping pipes that poke out from factory windows. A scattering of spindly but lush trees growing from building niches will augment the existing meager vegetation. The fog itself references the steam escaping from pipes that jut from garment factory windows above the Alley. The fog device, originally developed as an air cooling system, literally generates atmosphere without getting pedestrians wet. Yet paradoxically, by means of these same amplifying touches, Geller turns a normal walk through the city into a kind of temporary cinema. For those passing within the fog's ephemeral canopy, taking a shortcut on a busy day suddenly becomes a romantic stroll in a park. As Geller says of the project (an earlier incarnation of which he constructed in Rotterdam): "It's filmic, otherworldly, a temporary escape." Yet at the same time, the work causes us to look more closely at a famous but under-examined fixture of the New York City landscape. The fog will be activated at lunch time (12-2 pm) and from 4:30 pm until twilight. Hours and days of operation may be subject to change; for the most current information please check the website: http://channel.creative-capital.org/project-foggyday/ During the six-week installation Geller will document the activity in the Alley with a time-lapse digital video recorder. One frame per second will be recorded for the duration of the six-week installation, and the results will serve as raw material for a short documentary or non-narrative film. The opening for the installation will be held Friday, October 3, 2003, 5:00-8:00 pm at Cortlandt Alley between White and Walker Streets (one block below Canal Street and one block east of Broadway). Foggy Day is a project of Creative Capital with fiscal sponsorship from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. The Greenwall Foundation and the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation have provided additional funding. General Tool Manufacturing Company, LLC has provided special assistance. This project is made possible, in part, with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund and the Fund for Creative Communities/New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Matthew Geller has received grants from the New York State Council for the Arts, Jerome Foundation, and the WGBH/WNET New Television series, among others. He is past recipient of an American Academy in Rome Prize, two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, and a New York Foundation for the Arts Artists' Fellowship. His work has been exhibited internationally and in the Whitney Biennial, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art, The Kitchen, and on Public Television. For further information, please contact: Deborah Dewees (thru September 21) and Nolini Barretto (starting September 22) at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Tel. 212.219.9401


7. Ed Schmidt, The Last Supper, in his Chelsea apartment, Oct. 17-December 27

Ed Schmidt's "The Last Supper," the dinner-and-a-show performed in the playwright's kitchen and diningroom, is back! And it's moving to Manhattan!

"The Last Supper" is a modern retelling of the Biblical last supper, set in the kitchen among the unholy women who prepare the fateful meal. The play ran for 13 sold-out months in Mr. Schmidt's Brooklyn home and received glowing notices and prominent features in the New York Times, NBC's Today Show, the New Yorker, WNYC's Leonard Lopate Show, Time Out New York, the New York Post, the New York Observer, the Associated Press, the Christian Science Monitor, Backstage, and the Brooklyn Papers.

"The Last Supper" will be performed for an audience of 30 in Mr. Schmidt's new apartment, on West 27th Street, in Chelsea. Performances begin at 7PM, every Friday and Saturday, from October 17 to December 27 (with a few exceptions).

Payment is voluntary. The suggested offering (cash or check) is $50-$75 per person, which includes the show and a four-course dinner (wine and beer included), which the Times called "delicious." When "The Last Supper" closed last May, there was a waiting list of more than a thousand people. To reserve a seat at the table, act now. To check ticket availability, make reservations, or learn more about "The Last Supper," please visit the show's website www.thelastsupper.info and email us at info@thelastsupper.info.

11. Jessica Hagedorn, FF Alumn, new book, Dream Jungle, plus author's tour

Dream Jungle
by Jessica Hagedorn

"Barbed and alluring . . . [Hagedorn's] storytelling is sensuous and vivid and her characters are cunningly imagined; she offers a telling glimpse of the imposing American presence, both physical and cultural, in the Philippines." Publishers Weekly

Jessica Hagedorn burst onto the American literary scene in 1990 with the publication of Dogeaters, her lush, adventurous first novel, which was nominated for the National Book Award. Born and raised in the Philippines, Hagedorn is a novelist, poet, performance artist, and screenwriter who is widely acknowledged as one of our leading Asian- American voices.

With DREAM JUNGLE (Viking; September 29, 2003; 0-670-88458-8; 325 pages), Hagedorn delivers her first novel in seven years and richest novel yet. It is a story that reaches beyond the Filipino and Filipino-American experience to explore the universal themes of power, money, race and colonialism. Two real-life events that both took place in the Philippines-the discovery of the Tasaday, an ancient "lost tribe," in a remote mountain area of the rain forest and the filming of the movie Apocalypse Now-are the inspiration for DREAM JUNGLE. The novel also tells the intertwined tales of four unforgettable characters:

Zamora de Lagazpi, a wealthy but disillusioned Filipino "mestizo" landowner who claims to have found and made contact with a "Paleolithic lost tribe" of the Philippines. Still, he cannot escape the ennui that is the fate of his privileged, yet corrupt, social class, which lives at the mercy of the Marcoses.

Rizalina, the resourceful, intelligent, young daughter of Zamora's cook. She flees the de Lagazpi estate and avoids the sexual advances of Zamora only to fall into the seedy world of strip clubs catering to sex trade tourists. Too clever to remain a victim, her fortunes change when she meets Vincent, an attractive American actor.

Vincent Moody, a troubled and disillusioned actor, abandons his family and his rapidly fading star in Hollywood to find release in the exoticism of the Philippines. He falls deeply in love with Rizalina while filming a movie there about the Vietnam War.

Paz Marlowe, a young Filipino-American journalist, returns to the Philippines when her mother dies. She decides to stay in the country in order to research two stories --one about the elusive Zamora and the increasing suspicion surrounding his discovery and another about the filming of the American movie.

DREAM JUNGLE is the deeply evocative story of a country in crisis-the beauty, spirit, corruption, and desperation that was the tumultuous Philippines of the 1970's. Taking readers from the lush beauty of its indigenous rain forests and the grand estates of its privileged class to the seedy underbelly of sexual tourism in Manila and the Hollywood manipulation of the natural landscape, Hagedorn offers a glimpse of a country whose purity is an illusion, replaced with a carefully woven web of power and exploitation more complicated, and more compelling, than the plot of any movie.

Jessica Hagedorn is an acclaimed novelist and National Book Award nominee, as well as a poet, multimedia artist, and screenwriter. She was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to the United States in her teens. She currently resides in New York City.
