Ann Arbor, MI, March 9 -19, 2007
Entity, the University of Michigan’s premiere digital arts coalition, invites you to attend SYNC 07, an annual Multimedia Digital Arts Festival occurring March 9 th through the 19 th at the Duderstadt Center on the University of Michigan north campus. The festival features cutting edge works and performances that find a point of union between art and technology, and are offered in a range of mediums from digital painting, photography and animation, to installation and multimedia performance.
New technologies offer us increasing opportunities to explore artistic intentions and can provide us with new insights into both the art we experience and the world at large. SYNC 07 takes this as a new frontier in the aesthetic encounter and adopts this as the unifying theme that will bring together artists and thinkers for several days at the beginning of March.

As the discipline of digital arts enters its adolescence a more diverse group of artists are trying their hands at expressing themselves with the aid of ones and zeros. This year's SYNC 07 Digital Arts Festival will display some of the best cutting edge talent in the area. From March 9th to the 19th the Duderstadt Gallery will be home to video, audio, 2d and 3d art - all either created by digital means or commenting on the increasingly digitized space in which we dwell. This year's show will highlight a diverse sampling of the endless possibilities the digital realm has to offer.

The Gallery Opening will be held on Friday March 9 th , from 5:00pm to 7:00pm

The schedule of performances is as follows: (all performances start at 7:00 p.m. and are held in the Video Studio in the Duderstadt Center)

Mar. 9 th :

Bubblegone ( crafts an improvisational web of audio and projected video that is a reflection of humans as living beings taking in stimuli, processing it, and re-experiencing it throughout their lives.
bill van loo & j. schnable ( released their first collaborative album, "Raindays," a three year effort accomplished during spare moments of inspiration and cross-country visits. Both vivid and introspective, the songs are balanced with an energy that doesn't explode, but blossoms and slowly emerges in unexpected ways. Their live performance expands on the groundwork of the recorded material through improvisational rhythms and melodies.  Live visuals provided by Jon Hudson.
My Dear Disco: Dancethink Music ( combines exotic instruments such as Uilleann Pipes (Irish bagpipes) and Didjeridoo along with live laptops, synthesizers, vocals, saxophones, electric guitars, bass, and electro-acoustic drums. They’re pushing the boundaries of dance music by giving the audience a highly dynamic show where each original song has its own distinct, highly composed and thought-out identity.  Live visuals by VJ Techno Vision.
Mar 10 th :

The Betamales ( Ian Fulcher (of Hot Meat for Young Lovers and Drafted by Minotaurs on trumpet, various inputs, trashpedals) Vince Swain (of Dabenport on guitar, effects) and Paul Bancel (of The Riots on Drums) perform abstract, ambient noise soundscapes to short silent films.


de • fenestra: ( will feature Elijah Church (tabletop guitar, sheng, wood flutes), John Wolf Mcintyre (theremin and harmonium) and Will Soderberg (laptop, signal processing, midi guitar) performing live improvised electronic music with projected video accompaniment. ( reshapes reality by deconstructing and reassembling the world around them to create new understandings and new levels of communication. The simultaneous combination of technology, media, and movement in their live performances and recorded projects drives home the true meaning of seamless integration.  They will be joined by nationally renowned sculptor Steve Baibak, and performing artist Natalie Winans.

Films 4 [Conservation]


Our good friends, Nick Lyon and Evie Wright, have just initiated a wonderful web-based resource for conservation, photography and film/video.  Nick and Evie (who contributed an audio piece on jomas v.1) created Cockroach Productions nearly 2 years ago and have since made a huge impact with their work. They almost singled handly changed the UK's Palm Oil market from one that encourages the destruction of Indonesia's rainforests and orangutan habitats to a sustainable one. Their new initiative is a hub for conservation media, wildlife film and photography with  specialized pages in ape, tiger and elephant conservation. From Nick & Evie: is an experimental resource for conservationists, filmmakers and photographers dedicated to conservation of our enviroment and wildlife [ed]. Currently running as a BETA test.

The idea of this site is that it becomes a lively and dynamic first port of call for your daily web browsing. We aim to collect all the news that you find most interesting and which will be kept up to date with RSS web feeds.

We are trying to make the most of the beauty of the internet and the democratisation of information through new ways of finding information and spreading it. We encourage conservation groups to take advantage of free internet tools available to them to spread their message - not just through their own websites - but through others like this - do you have a blog? do you run RSS feeds? if you don't you are missing out on the chance to reach new audiences and supporters. Have a look at the live news feeds below to find out why.

We are also trying to make available some of the most exciting media available - video - this can be locally or internationally targetted - but if you have educational conservation videos available online then tell us about it so we can collect them here.

Wishing for Synchronicity : Works by Pipilotti Rist


Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, USA
Dates: On View Through January 14, 2007

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston presents first U.S. survey exhibition for Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist

HOUSTON, Texas – This fall, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston presents Wishing for Synchronicity: Works by Pipilotti Rist, the first comprehensive U.S. survey of the seminal work of the Swiss video artist. Organized by curator Paola Morsiani, the project brings together Rist’s most significant work from the mid-1980s to the present. Wishing for Synchronicity: Works by Pipilotti Rist is on view through January 14, 2007, touring nationally following its Houston presentation.

“Pipilotti Rist is a tremendously innovative and distinctly personal voice in contemporary art. As a master of her chosen media, she uses her large and small projections to place the viewer within her world, provoking the contemplation of broad issues through her individual actions,” said Contemporary Arts Museum Houston Director Marti Mayo. “We are proud to have organized her first survey exhibition in the U.S. for our diverse regional, national and international audiences, thereby continuing the Museum’s almost 60-year tradition of presenting the best and most exciting art of our time.”

Wishing for Synchronicity: Works by Pipilotti Rist includes eight of Rist’s early single-channel videos, six large projections, and three additional works. The exhibition features a selection of significant works spanning her career, such as I’m Not the Girl Who Misses Much (1986) and Sip My Ocean (1996), in which pleasurable images and music quickly become metaphors for hysteria and suffocation, and Ever is Overall (1997), in which the camera follows a female walking through city streets, smashing car windows with an iron flower as she meanders.

“Through her use of video, Rist combines the worlds of art history and mass culture to create her own visual language,” said exhibition curator Paola Morsiani. “She uses this convergence to intelligently explore the power of our mind and its connection to the body as well as the pervasiveness of our sexual experience and its link to our mortality; and she expresses her profound empathy and hope for the times in which we live.”

Rist recently accepted a prestigious commission to create the visual identity for The Armory Show 2007, The International Fair of New Art, to be held next February in New York City.

Rist was born in 1962 in Switzerland, and studied at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria and the School for Design in Basel, Switzerland. Her work has been shown at the Venice Biennale; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. She lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland.

CD Release March 25 / "They Die In Movies"


Saturday, March 25th at Scene Metrospace Gallery, bear witness to the culmination of months of labor and love...

They Die In Movies is a narrative-based installation produced and directed by Jeni Mc, featuring fashions by Berry Noxon, and photography by Cody Hinze and Juan Beltran.  It is film-themed and has been variously described as "a movie that never happened" and "a look through a director's eye."  The exhibit takes place during the East Lansing Film Festival and continues on through May 13.

Simultaneously, It Takes A Village To Make Records will release the much-anticipated "First-Hand Accounts, Theories & Their Repercussions" CD compilation.  A double-length album on one CD, FHATATR is a genre-hopping collection of original independent music from all over the country.

The CD release will feature a giant mix CD swap!  Bring your own homemade mix CD to trade for a copy of the compilation CD -- other than that, it's FREE!  Bring an extra copy of your mix to trade with other release party-goers...

There will also be performances by Rai and Canada, as well as a screening of "Hello and Goodbye" by Detroit's Test Pattern Pictures.

We thank "They Die In Movies" for graciously hosting our CD release.

See you there!

Dispatx Art Collective


Dispatx Art Collective are pleased to announce the publication of our fourth edition - Abandonment. This edition contains 14 works comprising narrative and poetry, essay, photography, oil painting and sculpture, and video.

To speak of abandonment suggests a withdrawal or relinquishment of influence, the exposure of a physical or social structure to the dereliction of time or a cessation of protection. It can also describe a state in which one is given over to forces beyond oneself – the extreme highs and lows of the human condition. Above all, the act of abandonment implies transfer – something orphaned is passed to another controlling agent, something is gained.

The editorial discusses each of the works in detail : in addition, all archive issues can now be searched by work title, description, and artist details. For more details, come to

Artist Video Series


Artist video series

Reading about artists can be moving. Seeing their work can be inspiring and, at times, can provoke us to action. Hillman Curtis, in his video series, allows us to experience leading designers through sound and motion, uncovering what it is about them that inspires him. Curtis profiles such  luminaries as Stefan Sagmiester, Billy Bragg, Paula Scher, Badly Drawn Boy and Pentagram as well as profiling some of his favorite movies like LA Doce Vita and Spinal Tap.

Curtis has even more videos on his site. See the entire series
