So... With a deep breath and hoping that this does not come back to bite me
;), I'd like to draw your attention to the Vasulkas talk here in Bournemouth
on Weds. They are doing some very interesting work in Second Life and will
be talking about that in their presentation. If you're in the vicinity or
fancy a day by the sea, please come along.

Dear Colleagues and Friends

Bournemouth University and SCAN Models of Practice Series
Steina and Woody Vasulka Presentation

Please arrive early to ensure that you get a seat

Presenting only at two venues in UK in February 2010, Bournemouth University
and SCAN (Models of Practice Series) are pleased to host major figures in
the history of video art and electronic media, Steina and Woody Vasulka.
They will show their work from the 1970s through to their recent
interventions in the online platform Second Life. The two artists, who have
worked together since the 1960s, have contributed enormously to the
development of digital arts through a prolific body of work exploring the
manipulation of electronic energy and the interrelation of sound and image.

In 1971, they co-founded The Kitchen, New York with Andreas Mannik and in
the same year established the first annual video festival there.
Concurrently they were leaders in the development of a video art programme
at the Whitney Museum.

Their early collaborative efforts, produced from 1970 - 74, were primarily
focussed on explorations that deconstructed the materiality of video and
audio signals. In the mid 70s they collaborated with Geoffry Schier to build
the first real-time, computer-controlled video processor. Since then, their
work has expanded to include video installations with robotic sculptural
elements and live interactive performance.

Since 1980, the Vasulkas have lived and worked in Santa  Fe, New Mexico
(USA), where Steina has continued her work in video, media  performance, and
video installation, and Woody has continued to produce  work in video,
three-dimensional computer graphics, and media constructions.  In 1992, the
Vasulkas organized Eigenwelt der Apparate-Welt: Pioneers  of Electronic Art,
an exhibition of early electronic tools for Ars  Electronica, Linz, Austria,
with a laserdisc interactive catalogue. The  Vasulkas have been
artist-in-residence at the National Center for Experiments  in television
(NCET), at KQED in San Francisco, and at WNET/Thirteen in  New York.

I do hope that you will be able to attend

With best wishes
