Grants for Researchers in Residence
August 31, 2005 deadline

As it does every year, the Daniel Langlois Foundation is currently offering research grants. The proposals selected will see researchers conduct work at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation. And while the program does not impose research themes per se, the Foundation would like to direct one of the two grants to research on the "Documentation and Conservation of the Media Arts Heritage," the focus of a major research effort led by the Foundation.

Individuals wishing to submit a research proposal are asked to read the program's guidelines:

Introducing Scream

Scream is a software application to facilitate screaming.

Scream sits quietly in your computer's system tray and automatically springs into action when it detects a scream.

Scream disturbs your Windows interface. But it isn't aimed just at computer frustrations. In a world where "anger" is paired with "management," Scream encourages the return to prominence of the lost art of screaming. As Howard Beale said in 1976, "I don't have to tell you things are bad.... all I know is that first you've got to get mad."

Petition for young Portuguese filmaker under trial, with no lawyer in Dubai.

If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider signing
the online petition for Ivo Marques at http://www.PetitionOnline.com/ivomarqu/

Briefly: the 29 year old filmmaker Ivo Marques was in Dubai doing a
documentary when he was arrested after being denounced as smoking haxixe.
The police searched his apartment and indeed found a haxixe cigarette butt on an ashtray (my sources are reputed Portuguese newspapers and is on trial *without a lawyer*. Time in prison can go up to 5 years.

Portuguese authorities are doing very little. We need your help. The petition was written by the Portuguese association of filmmakers.

Thank you

Turbulence Commission: "Imprimatur" by Andy Deck
Needs Java and Adobe Acrobat Reader

"Imprimatur" is a free, easy-to-use tool for producing posters. Users contribute to a poster layout via their web browser. Creativity becomes a shared process, as unpredictable as the people who are passing through. The artist, rather than providing images, provides a system intended to activate the viewer's thought and expressiveness. Against the backdrop of a mass media culture that promotes conformity and passivity, "Imprimatur" encourages 'viewers' to choose themes and produce their own messages. It propels on-line expression out of the ink jet and into the streets.
