Dear Rob, and list,

Thanks for suggesting a theme for May - let's run with it. I had the pleasure of visiting the building site for the new FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) Centre in Liverpool yesterday, and director Eddie Berg and I were talking about New York and the new media scene there. He had just come back from NYC, from a meeting organised by Creative Time and the Rockerfeller Foundation where new media practitioners met to discuss their practice. Perhaps unlike the BALTIC seminar there was a strong contigent of "come-from-aways" (as they'd be called in Nova Scotia) - in this case European and British curators and producers. Anyway, all this to say that Eddie and I talked about PORT and the need to remember/know more about that show, and remembered the days when the Whitney Biennial used to (still does?) tour its video programme, and wondered if there was a way to similarly flesh out, for an international or at least british/european audience the particularities of the New York media art scene, perhaps

I would like then, for May, to point CRUMB readers to the following links:

1) if you don't yet have a hard copy of the BALTIC curating new media book, excerpts of it are on the crumb site: 
http://www.newmedia.sunderland.ac.uk/balticseminar/index.htm

2) there is a report on new media art practice that was the result of a series of workshops and conferences sponsored by The Kitchen that has a good deal of NY and American content. It's a pdf and it is at: www.thekitchen.org/FordExec.pdf
(I'll confess to having transcribed some of the sections from the Sins of Change conference at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis)

3) There is also a report called New Media Art | New Funding Models prepared for The Rockefeller Foundation  Creativity & Culture Division by Pamela Jennings   December 2000 which is at: http://digital-bauhaus.com/html/mediaArtReport/reportabstract.html
One has been commissioned more recently - i can't locate info on it at the moment... will follow.

4) Marisa Olsen, I believe, wrote an article for Afterimage on curating in the media arts, for which she conducted an e-mail survey - Marisa - is there a link for it?

5) and then there is the current Whitney Biennial and its attendant press: www.whitney.org/artport.

Particular themes from the BALTIC seminar that seem increasingly relevant to me a year later:

Nina and Karen's points about funding - creating pilot projects to help fund the bigger project.

Iliyana's points about cross-border, time-sensitive collaborations

Tamas's points about the lack of conversation between the independent/private gallery scene and the museums

Julian's points about the cross-purpose agendas of networked art and museum spaces (it is May Day and London is about to be awash in protests again, so I'm reminded of his provacative comments on the net's ability to nurture and sustain counterculture)

... I'll leave it to crumb readers to pick theirs and add to the discussion.

Rob, if the book was designed and ready to print - can you not put the proofs online? 

thanks,
Sarah
