Boredom Research: Interviewed by Aaron Steed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------->
An interview with Boredom Research on their latest project 'F.wish' a 
new online project commissioned by Folly (http://www.folly.co.uk/); 
based on the Lam Tsuen Wishing Trees. In Hong Kong near the Tin Hou 
Temple you can visit these trees, write your wish on a “bao die”, tie it 
to an orange and throw it up into the branches. If your wish is caught 
in the branches it is said to come true. The tree used to be a camphor 
tree where a tablet for worshipping Pak Kung was placed before it 
withered and became hollow. The myth goes that a worshiper prayed to the 
tree to fix his son who was slow in learning. The granted wish led to 
many more wishes being made of the tree.

PHONETHICA: Reviewed by Franz Thalmair.
--------------------------------------------------------------------->
The contradictory overlap between diversity and similarity of languages 
and their corresponding cultures is the initial point for the project 
PHONETHICA by Takumi ENDO and Nao TOKUI. More than 6.5 billion people on 
our planet share approximately five to six thousand languages. 
Nevertheless, every single individual owns a speaking equipment, which 
enables him/her to produce the same sounds in every corner of the world. 
Consequently, there exists some coincidental similarity within the 
different idioms. Looking at languages in this specific way, it must be 
concluded that phonetic rather than semantic aspects of languages result 
in an overlapping of language phenomena in different cultural backgrounds.

Alex Dragulescu's Blogbot: Reviewed by María Victoria Guglietti.
--------------------------------------------------------------------->
Blogbot and productive inertia.
Sometimes silence is unbearable. Alex Dragulescu’s graphic novel What I 
Did Last Summer inundates our screen with words that we can almost 
touch. The phrases are intermittent, fragmentary, irrevocably silent… “I 
don’t ask why…” “Now, you’ve got all that on…” “I read the Stars and 
Stripes and….” These are textual bombs; scattered sentences harvested by 
Dragulescu’s software agent Blogbot. The phrases are actual extracts 
captured from the famous war blogs My War[sub]1[/sub] and Baghdad 
Blogger[2], two of the most famous blogs written by participants and 
witnesses of the war in Iraq.

The Lost Biology of Silent Hill_: FurtherCritic Article by [[Mez]]
--------------------------------------------------------------------->
/The game Silent Hill [all 5 versions] attempts to restitch game-genre 
predictability. The versions progress using suspense/dread evocation as 
their primary engagement tool. Various game elements produce this 
introspective thrill-connection through the use of sound biting [almost 
literally], sinister environ expectancies [limited visual negotiations 
through fog/blackness], rotten materiality [decay + dereliction] and 
puzzle elements designed 2 provoke survival adaptions [fight-or-flight 
responses].

disturb.the.peace [angry women]: Review by Eliza Fernbach.
--------------------------------------------------------------------->
Can anger be beautiful? Can rage be aesthetic? The collaborative 
net-based installation site D/tP disturb.the.peace [angry women] thinks 
so. What after all is more powerful than an angry woman but a group of 
angry women doing art? The infamous 'angry young man' epitomized by the 
likes of James Dean and Marlon Brando in the cinema of the Fifties 
hasn't really been mirrored in a feminine glass. Polishing a reflection 
on angry women- young or old is the aim of this site that Hollers back 
and out into the future with bravado. Curated by Jess Loseby 
(http://rssgallery.com/), submissions to the site are ongoing and the 
bar has been set high by the founding fems who grace the inaugural page.

2nd Upgrade Meeting at Oklahoma City: Review by Luis Silva.
--------------------------------------------------------------------->
This year, the Oklahoma City node will host the Second International 
Meeting. Having the DIY (Do-It-Yourself) ideology as its theme, as well 
as a metaphor for the functioning of the Upgrade! network, this city in 
the middle of the United States of America will witness, from November 
30th to December 3rd, a worldwide meeting of new media artists, 
curators, critics and theoreticians. Over twenty nodes will be present 
and have been preparing specially for the occasion a program that will 
feature exhibitions, performances, lectures, workshops, screenings and 
debates. Spreading all over the city, in spaces like Untitled 
[ArtSpace], IAO Gallery or The Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

Jason Nelson - Vholoce: Review by John Hopkins.
--------------------------------------------------------------------->
Vholoce is one project in a long line of projects which seeks to 
creatively engage the ubiquitous data-streams that are flooding our 
virtual world. The rising flood of data is useless without sensible 
display. Visual (and sonic) display of digital data is a fundamental 
contemporary issue. But what is sensible display? Using a data stream as 
a basically random source for visual display is one way to play with the 
stream. The syntax of visual display (possibly) becomes the site for 
expression by the creative producer. The data-stream source, the method 
of (and reason for) display, and the overall creative process need to be 
interrogated in order to find the basis for the type of digital engagement.
