===============CALL FOR PAPERS===============
>
> Acoustic Space, special issue of on Trans-Culture Mapping
>
> http://rixc.lv
> http://locative.net
>
> =====================================
>
> The RIXC Centre for New Media Culture seeks manuscripts for its
> upcoming Acoustic Space journal, to be published for the 7th
> international Art+Communication festival in Riga Latvia, October 1-3
> 2004. Now in its 5th edition, the Acoustic Space print journal, is a
> forum for net-radio and new media artists broadly interested in the
> idea of making visible the invisible. This year's issue, Trans-Culture
> Mapping, will focus, in the context of European expansion, on ideas of
> locality, cartography and the politics of open-systems.
>
> =====================================
>
> The ability to visualize a space relates to its domination where
> borders are maintained by a legions of state cartographers, enforcing
> hierarchical regimes of power from the level of the biological to the
> geopolitical.
>
> Against the US-led 'coalition of the willing' of which Latvia counts
> itself a part --informed, as it is, by the US Strategic Command's
> objective of "Full Spectrum Dominance" (that seeks the unilateral
> total domination of land, sea, air, cyberspace and outer space)- this
> publication is interested in projects that re-appropriate mapping as a
> means cultural expression.
>
> The publication seeks to offer a space of exchange for grassroots
> activists and new media practitioners who are critically exploring
> ideas of locality, in response to the continental European (and
> global) process of "normalization".
>
> =====================================
>
> Sub-themes
>
> Locative Media
> Governments and corporations worldwide are constructing a
> geo-rectified real-time digital-double of earth-systems, which, with
> the advent of the mobile Internet and the ever increasing ubiquity of
> location-sensing technologies, allow for urban space to become
> conceived of as a site for digital media and, potentially, emergent
> social organization. Yet, beneath the manifold promise of
> collaborative cartography, is the harsh reality of 'total information
> awareness'. Can locative media escape its own axiomatic system?
>
> Spectrum Ecology
> Advances in wireless internet technology are changing not only how
> people connect to the internet but also how they approach the wireless
> spectrum itself. This section seeks to map how ideas of use and
> ownership are being analyzed and reconsidered in this environment.
>
> Tactical Cartography
> Social softwares have become a means of mobilizing people without
> having to go to the "Media" to convey a message. Problems, however,
> persist in making the leap into more mainstream circuits of power. How
> can maps be used both to help legitimize certain "fringe"
> Internet-debates and throw light on the nature of multinational
> capitalism?
>
> Endocolonization
> In the context of a "War on Terror", global borders are being mapped
> _within_, in a battle for "hearts and minds". While we may celebrate
> aspects of European integration, smaller States must also be cautious
> of the wholesale adoption of various monoculturing techniques that
> threaten their local diversities.  How does "the local" assert itself
> while at the same time avoiding becoming reactionary and
> fundamentalist.
>
> =====================================
>
> Proposals and inquiries regarding submissions should be made to Marc
> Tuters <[log in to unmask]> and Rasa Smita <[log in to unmask]>
>
> We encourage you to submit documents of various lengths an forms, so
> long as they related to one of the sub-themes and display an internal
> consistence.
>
> While we ask for documents in English we actively encourage
> submissions from non-Anglophones, especially Eastern Europeans.
>
> Please submit documents as RTF's and any images separately in a high
> resolution format.
>
> Deadline for final, full paper submissions: August 1st
>
