So far, there are 5 candidates for ISEA Board positions. Since the maximum
number of members is 7, there is no need for elections. However, resumes
of the 5 candidates will be sent to all regular members, so that eventual
objections can be sent in. Together with the resumes, we will include a
proposal for new membership fees. Members are invited to react. The
results will be published in the newsletter.
Presently the ISEA board is investigating possibilities to provide ISEA
members with Email facilities at low costs. For practical reasons, we will
try to serve Holland first, then EEC member countries and then, we hope,
the rest of Europe. Of course we will not stop there! We will keep you

Aims and Scope:
LANGUAGES OF DESIGN is an international, interdisciplinary journal devoted
to research in formal languages and their use for the synthesis of words,
images and sounds. LANGUAGES OF DESIGN welcomes articles employing
linguistic techniques to generate literary and 'nonliterary' texts, music
and visual works, including fine art, dance, theater, architecture and all
types of design.

The multidisciplinary focus is reflected in the composition of the
journal's editorial board, which includes literary theorists, music
theorists and composers, researchers in artificial intelligence, artists
and art critics. Formal design theory, generative grammars, shape gram-
mars, and computational musicology are the central domain of the journal.
More general subject areas such as formal languages, finite state
automata, grammatical inference, pattern recognition, cellular automata,
semantic networks, connectionism and syntactical analysis will be dis-
cussed in the context of their application to productive systems. Specific
analytic perspectives such as syntactics, semiotics, deconstruction,
hermeneutics, stylistics, narratology, philology, morphology, prosody,
harmony theory, formal musicology and performance analysis will be
presented in terms of their impact and influence on a theoretical foun-
dation for productive systems.

Research results from visual, audio, and textual analysis that may have
impact on the arts are also invited. Of particular interest is research
utilising computational methods to verify theoretical formal analyses.
Articles criticising the assumptions and results of this work are also

Nothing Travels Faster Than Light, An Installation by Simulations, London
Unwahr Gallery, Kl. Hamburger Str. 16, Ecke Auguststr, Berlin,
19 September - 4 October 1992
"Nothing travels faster than light" is an experimental work to be shown in
the Unwahr Gallery in Berlin. The work is conceived and executed by the
artists collective of Simulations. It consists of 200 electric light bulbs
and computer generated videographics electronically linked by an accom-
panying soundtrack, thus forming an integrated system. Simulations is a
fluid organisation, participants moving freely in and out of the group.
For this project Simulations consists of James Kelly, Stephen Klimas, Jens
Heise and Kevin Rowe. Klimas and Heise are German, Kelly and Rowe British,
reflecting Simulations European focus.
"Nothing travels faster than light: seeks to raise questions concerning
our faith in the absolute postulates of science. It does this by utilising
the latest commercial applications of technology. Ideological content
attempting to subvert material form.

This year as I completed a two-year term as Director-at-Large of SIGGRAPH,
I launched a new SIGGRAPH committee (ADM) dedicated to giving the computer
arts, design, and media community a voice within the organization.  This
community is active and makes contributions throughout the computer
graphics field. Through formal efforts under the SIGGRAPH umbrella, there
is great potential to enrich the environment within which this community
works, e.g. promotion of Artist-in-Residencies in research and industry,
endowed arts awards, collaboration with arts organizations abroad, and
conference events.  The initial definition is broad, including fine
artists, all types of designers, and creative arts workers in commercial
media production.  More specific focuses within the ADM committee will be
formed and the future may bring splinter groups with their own distinct
identity and mission.

The SIGGRAPH Arts, Design, and Media Survey (approx 470 distributed at the
conference) was an effort to collect information about this community in
order to assess current SIGGRAPH programs and lay plans for the future.  I
also conducted the first  meeting of the ADM Committee, attended by about
75 people and witness to lively discussion.  The meeting and numerous
discussions with attendees revealed wide and clear support for a more
clearly defined role within the organization.  We will be producing a
report on the survey data before the end of the year.  IF YOU RECEIVED A

This year SIGGRAPH published an Educational Art and Design slide set for
the first time. The slide set was edited by Cynthia Rubin, University of
Vermont, and produced by Diana Tuggle, Los Alamos National Laboratory. The
set shows the working processes of 13 artists, and includes accompanying
statements from the artists on their artistic philosophy and processes.
Many of us who are artists teaching with the computer have long held the
belief that the real power of the computer as an instrument for leading us
to a new aesthetic lies in the process of artist interaction with the
computer while developing an image. Unfortunately, since most manuals and
books on the commercial market emphasize easy step by step production, we
were without a resource for examples of more innovative image development
until now.

This set focuses on two-dimensional imagery, and includes the work of:
Sandro Corsi, Acha Debela, Carol Flax, Karen Guzak, Michael Holcomb,
AnnMarie LeBlanc, Robert Martin, Delle Maxwell, Barbara Mones-Hattal,
Jacquelyn Ford Morie, Cynthia Beth Rubin, Eva Sutton, and Roman Verostko.

Barbara Nessim is an internationally know New York City artist, il-
lustrator and educator whose computer art piece at the SIGGRAPH `92 Art
Show was so interactive, you could come away with an "original" Nessim,
free of charge. By selecting one of 18 national flags displayed on a Mac
screen, visitors obtained their own artists book, containing 14 drawings
selected randomly from the 400 drawings Nessim had created and stored,
using a custom-designed HyperCard stack. By cutting, folding and stapling
the 8 1/2-by-11 inch sheet of paper printed on the laser printer into a
small book, users created their own minibook and walked away with a unique
work of art. "The chances of getting the same book twice is 48 million to
1," Nessim said.

Interactivity is one of the most compelling aspects of computer-generated
art. Nessim takes advantage of the computer's unique characteristics to
develop personal concepts and images relating to the nature of interper-
sonal relationships. The relationship between the artist, the artwork and
the observer/participant echoes her theme of art as the universal lan-
guage. The multidimensional experience that Nessim creates uses visual
elements contained in the computer's memory and the tactile experience of
the printed page. Each visitor is engaged to interact with the computer,
and is rewarded with a unique work of art. This ability to walk away from
a computer interactive environment with an artifact not only piques the
interest of the audience, but invites participation in the art itself and
becomes an additional tool for the artist.

Lectures/demonstrations and concert by Dick Raaymakers(1930). Dick
Raaijmakers is a composer/scientist/theatremaker who teaches at the
center of Sonology and CAM at the conservatory in Den Haag (NL).
His work (theories and artworks) is a consequent study on basic phenomena
in music/art. In his reflections on music/art he also intergrates the use
of technology as well as the fundamental distinction that remains between
technology and art. His concert will be the systematic dissection of
12 microphones in a laboratory set up.
