Nina Wenhart's blog on the prehysteries of new media

"this blog is nina wenhart's collection of resources on the various histories of new media art. it consists mainly of non or very little edited material i found flaneuring on the net, sometimes with my own annotations and comments, sometimes it's also textparts i retyped from books that are out of print.

it is also meant to be an additional resource of information and recommended reading for my students of the prehystories of new media class that i teach at the school of the art institute of chicago in fall 2008.

the focus is on the time period from the beginning of the 20th century up to today."

Simultaneous Cities: Tokyo And Los Angeles

"Item 1: Formulation and programming of simultaneous structures in Los Angeles and Tokyo that serve as thresholds to both cities vis–a–vis the proposed 'Mag Lev' transportation tunnel beneath the Pacific Ocean. An investigation of the invisible realm that exists between the two cities.Item 2: Advancements in transportation, telecommunications and the like are certainly in abundance as the century draws to a close. Yet architecture seems little affected by the onslaught of `progress.' Item 3: Tokyo and Los Angeles are two cities emerging as centres of extreme import as we move beyond the 20th century. Although they are by no means the only two, they do epitomize much of the dichotomies and disparities of the contemporary urban condition. Providing such a service between these two places certainly can be viewed as a perversity of a world caught up in the 'instantaneous' and the conquest of desire.Item 4: the self has always been set against an abstraction of the cosmos and that has emerged from reflection on the mapping of our tangible world. Here then is yet a further reduction of time and space as the experiential is all but eliminated."

[Papadakis, Dr Andreas (ed). 1995 Deconstruction III: Architectural Design Profile No. 87, London, UK: Academy Group. 1854902539]

Telecommunication: Decentralized International Exchange

Jeffrey Shaw (ZKM 1995)
TelecommunicationBroadcasting and telecommunications are an integral aspect of the new media technologies, and permit media manifestations to address an international and mass audience. While telecommunication methods have till now only tentatively been used by media artists, the Institute for Image Media feels that this is an important area of future development; one that will lead to a decentralized international exchange of cultural action and information.Therefore the Institute for Image Media will focus its activity in this area on the following potentials:

1). two–way interactive transmission of audiovisual data, for instance, via the new ISDN telephone system, 2). an international communications network of persons and institutions involved with media technology issues, 3). the new notions of "telepresence" and "cyberspace" which will enable people to enter a virtual dataspace and meet and communicate with each other there. This evokes the possibility for artists to create immaterial artworks that manifest themselves solely within the international telecommunications waves.
When one considers the visions which accompanied the development of contemporary art over the last 30 years – the kinetic art of the 1950s, the "open artwork" of the 1960s (happenings, environment, performances, land art, etc.), the conceptual and social art forms of the 1970s – one finds that these visions have interesting and astonishing parallels in the technological developments of the 1990's. Interactivity creates a intimate relation between the artwork and the viewer, tele–communications permits extended social interactions, simulation gives direct form to conceptual proposi–tions. It seems to be only a short step from "inter–media art" to "multimedia technology". Of course we cannot predict whether if technology will bring about a fulfillment or finale of these utopian artistic movements. The Institute for Image Media intends to be a place, where artists can think and work in relation to this question.
