ART+COMMUNICATION: TRANS CULTURAL MAPPING THE 7TH INTERNATIONAL  
FESTIVAL FOR NEW MEDIA CULTURE
RIGA, LATVIA, SEPTEMBER 30 - OCTOBER 3 2004. http://rixc.lv/04
************************************************************************ 
******
The 7th International Art+Communication festival will take place in  
Riga, Latvia, from September 30 - October 3, 2004. The festival will  
offer a space of exchange for new media practitioners and grassroots  
activists and who are critically exploring ideas of locality, in  
response to the continental European (and global) "normalization  
processes". The main themes of the festival will include the following:

- LOCAL CULTURE AND EUROPEAN NORMALIZATION - For the new media arts,  
the internet has been an invaluable tool for mobilization beyond  
borders, and while, as "net-workers", we may celebrate certain aspects  
of the integration project, it also potentially poses a threat to local  
diversities. This event is intended to shelter debates amongst  
grassroots activists, new media theorists and practitioners critically  
engaging with ideas of locality, in the broader context of the  
continental European (and global) process of cultural and economic  
integration and "normalization". How does "the local" assert itself  
while at the same time avoiding becoming reactionary and  
fundamentalist?

- SOCIAL CARTOGRAPHY AND TACTICAL MOBILITY - The very power to  
"officially" map a space equates to its domination, yet new forms of  
networking have raised the possibility of a practice of collaborative  
cartography whereby maps are generated and maintained from below.  This  
session is interested in creatively envisioning space through using  
mapping as a metaphor to explore a whole range of actor centred  
conversations

- LOCATIVE MEDIA - The term locative media in its most literal  
interpretation marks a move from William Gibson's dislocated cyberspace  
to Steve Mann's inter-dimensional cyborgspace; in which, a combination  
of wireless networking and location-awareness, would allow for the  
annotation of architectonic space with digital media. Yet, perhaps the  
device is less interesting than the metaphors it congers. As this  
session explores, locative media is, in fact, open to multiple  
interpretations: as the site for old discussions about the relationship  
of consciousness to place and other people; as the framework within  
which to actively engage with, critique, and shape a rapid set of  
technological developments; as
the context within which to explore alternative models of social,  
political and economic relations; or, indeed, as a name for the  
ambiguous shape of a rapidly deploying surveillance and control  
infrastructure.

- SPECTRUM ECOLOGY - Electromagnetic radiation is the most ubiquitous  
form of intelligible noise in communication history. There have been  
several key technological advances that have contributed to this  
flooding of the natural spectrum including the invention of  
technologies for generating electricity and radio waves. As something  
of a consequence of employing (these often disregarded) portions of the  
spectrum to construct "pirate" distributio networks, artists and  
activists have increasingly turned a critical eye on emissions from  
"official" social, cultural, military, and physical sources  
politicizing the issue of spectrum allocation. This panel looks at this  
radio activity and the intentions, consequences, and technologies used  
to examine and manipulate radio waves.

- TCM PRESENTATIONS - Bringing together organizations from Finland,  
Iceland, Slovenia, Latvia, Norway and France, the Trans-Culture Mapping  
network staged a series of workshops, over the spring and summer of  
2004 that sought to explore the concept of locative media; in which a  
combination of site-specific engagement, digital media, wireless  
networking, and location-awareness would allow for the exploration of  
specific locations and cultures on the fringes of Europe. Artists and  
researchers employed ideas of contextualised mapping (cultural,  
temporal, acoustical, historical and spatial) to develop open source  
tools for envisioning a collaborative map of Europe. These  
investigations into
locative media sought to raise new sets of questions, critical  
perspectives and cultural practice.

ART+COMMUNICATION 7 WILL FEATURE: AN EXPOSITION OF DOCUMENTATION,  
INSTALLATIONS AND ARTISTS PRESENTATIONS FROM THE TCM WORKSHOPS;  
"MAPPING THE SPECTRUM" PERFORMANCES; AND A 2-DAY CONFERENCE ON  
"COLLABORATIVE CARTOGRAPHY". Contact: rixc ( at ) rixc.lv

The Trans-European Cultural Mapping programme is coordinated by The  
Centre for New Media Culture RIXC/Riga in collaboration with  
K@2/Liepaja, TEKS/Trondheim,
LORNA/Reykjavik, ELLIPSE/Tours, Projekt Atol/Ljubljana, Locative Media  
Network. The project is supported by the Culture 2000 Programme of the  
European Union. The festival also is supported by Latvian Cultural  
Capital Foundation, Riga City Council, French Cultural Center, AFFA,  
British Council in Riga, radio NABA, daily newspaper “Diena” and  
magazine “Rîgas laiks”.
