The term "participation" provides a point-of-reference for experimental 
software art by Barbara Lattanzi. Such projects as Lattanzi's net-based 
"CSPAN Karaoke" emphasize the improvisational and cooperative dimension 
of Participation as critical (or ironic) re-figuring of the 
human-computer interface. Software such as "The Interrupting Annotator" 
derive partly from late-1980s/early-1990s models of media activism, 
public access tv, and other versions of community communications. Some 
of Lattanzi's projects, such as "EG Serene", involve small-scale, 
cine-software applications for video improvisation, that "open source" 
key works from the 1970s era of structuralist, experimental filmmaking.

In 2005, "C-SPAN Karaoke", received an "Honorable Mention" at 
Transmediale, the Berlin-based international media art festival. The 
Artport website of the Whitney Museum of American Art featured, during 
January, her gatepage, "C-SPAN x 4". The gallery version of "HF Critical 
Mass Applied to Cinematography by NASA" was included in the 2005 
exhibition "Reverse Engineers". The production of Lattanzi's multimedia 
applets and software has been stimulated in part by the open structures 
of net-based cooperative venues such as the on-line archive of software 
art, "Runme.org" and Rhizome "Artbase", where her work is included. She 
currently teaches at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts.
