Pacific Rim New Media Summit Companion

Leonardo Volume 39, No. 4 (August 2006)

Leonardo is pleased to be a co-sponsor of the Pacific Rim New Media Summit (PRNMS), a pre-conference event to ISEA2006. In conjunction with PRNMS, Leonardo will release a special issue of the Leonardo journal to serve as a summit companion. Guest-edited by artist and educator Greg Niemeyer, this special issue of Leonardo follows the Working Group structure of the summit itself, featuring introductory texts by the Working Group chairs and preliminary papers of Working Group members.

This special issue of Leonardo will be included in the registration packs of all ISEA2006 early-bird conference registrants, with additional copies available for sale at ISEA2006.

SWITCH New Media Art Journal

SWITCH is the new media art journal of the CADRE Laboratory for New Media of the School of Art and Design at San Jose State University. It has been published on the Web since 1995. SWITCH is interested in fostering a critical viewpoint on issues and developments in the multiple crossovers between art and technology. Its main focus in on questioning and analyzing, as well as reporting and discussing these new art forms as they develop, in hopes of encouraging dialogue and possible collaboration with others who are working and considering similar issues.  SWITCH aims to critically evaluate developments in art and technology in order to contribute to the formation of alternative viewpoints with the intention of expanding the arena in which new art and technology emerge.  SWITCH is overseen by CADRE faculty Joel Slayton and Rachel Beth Egenhoefer.

As San Jose State University and the CADRE Laboratory are serving as the academic host for the ZeroOne San Jose /ISEA 2006 Symposium, SWITCH has dedicated itself to serving as an official media corespondent of the Festival and Symposium.  SWITCH has focused the past three issues of publication prior to ZeroOne San Jose/ISEA2006 on publishing content reflecting on the themes of the symposium. Our editorial staff has interviewed and reported on artists, theorists, and practitioners interested in the intersections of Art & Technology as related to ideas such as Transvergence and the Pacific Rim. While some of those featured in SWITCH are part of the festival and symposium, others provide a complimentary perspective.   In addition SWITCH will be covering the Festival and Symposium by updating their current issue with freshcontent during ZeroOne San Jose/ ISEA2006; providing pod casts of events, interviews, and happenings throughout out downtown San Jose; and working with NPR (neighborhood public radio) to broadcast their own daily news showthroughout the week of ZeroOne San Jose/ISEA2006.
