November 11th, 2002
this is an open call to fellow digital and network media creators by the OFFLINE digital creative association, http://offline.area3.net/map.php, and South London based digital art events group 'open_digi', http://22.214.171.124/club, for participation in our project >war time<
today, on the anniversary of the end of biggest human on human killing spree
so far, 'WWI', and with less than 30 days till the first trigger point where
the US and allies may commence war on Iraq, with many ongoing wars around
this world and many people who thought they were 'safe' now being targeted
both by state and non-state weapons of terror and mass destruction, we feel
it is appropriate to harness our skills, our imaginations and the networks
we have amongst us to build a collective reaction to and against war-making,
past, present and future.
the >war time< project is conceived firstly as a live performance
event, utilizing technologies and networking from the internet, with projections
and sound, though contributions should be adaptable subsquently for online
The interface that will launch individual contributions to >war time< can be seen at http://offline.area3.net/wartime/
The current list of participants can be seen at http://offline.area3.net/wartime/list_PART.php
The first live performance of >war time< will take place on December
13th, 2002 at the Ritzy Cafe in the Ritzy Cinema, Brixton, London UK as the
first event of a new open_digi season http://126.96.36.199/club/#wartime.
