This FRIDAY at 6PM at the Boston Center for the Arts the opening reception for Sifting the Inner Belt.
Sifting the Inner Belt
June 17 - July 31, 2005
Opening Reception: Friday, June 17, 6PM - 8PM
Mills Gallery, Boston Center for the Arts
Organized by Hiroko Kikuchi & Jeremy Chi-Ming Liu, Jeremy Chan Peng Chu, Catherine D'lgnazio, Natalie Loveless, Kim Szeto, and William Ho

"Community doesn't mean understanding everything about everybody and resolving all the differences; it means knowing how to work within differences as they change and evolve."

- Lucy R. Lippard
Sifting the Inner Belt is the culmination of a year-long, site-specific social performance and research art project consisting of a series of performance interventions and performance-based research projects, which closely observe and examine, i.e. sift, the South End neighborhood with an emphasis on creating emotional, conceptual and physical bridges between the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) and the Berkeley Street Community Garden (BSCG).

"Inner Belt" refers to the ill-conceived and never completed highway project from 1948-1971 that would have created an inner beltway highway around downtown Boston and between the South End and Lower Roxbury.  In the process of the failed project, hundreds of homes were destroyed, many families displaced, and yet, because the project was stopped, over one hundred gardens have sprung up.  The foundations of these homes, the spirit of these families, and the legacy of the impact remain today.

Conceived by Hiroko Kikuchi and Jeremy Chi-Ming Liu in the summer of 2004, Sifting the Inner Belt was developed as a collaboration of artists, activists and community residents: Jeremy Chan Peng Chu, Catherine D'lgnazio, Natalie Loveless, Kim Szeto, and William Ho.  It is based upon ideas of audience participation, communication, and political intention, and is constructed through a generative process involving dialogue and community outreach through specific efforts, including research and interactive performance art.  The exhibition in the Mills Gallery includes site-specific installations, video, sound, photography, written documentation/books, and a display of final and in-progress research.  A series of performance events will occur throughout the show in and around the BCA and the BSCG.

Sifting the Inner Belt is supported by the LEF Foundation and National Bitter Melon Council.

BINARY KATWALK is an on-line exhibition space focusing primarily on work that is highly experimental and would benefit from a non-traditional exhibition space. The site is co-curated by Sindee Nakatani and Jeremy Hight. We are looking for new media work, for cross disciplinary works, for experimental works in particular mediums, and for works that are pushing into new horizons in form and functionality.

SOFT CINEMA: Navigating the Database

DVD-video with 40 page color booklet

The MIT Press, 2005

ISBN 0-262-13456-X

What kind of cinema is appropriate for the age of Google and blogging?
Automatic surveillance and self-guided missiles? Consumer profiling and CNN?
To investigate answers to this question Lev Manovich - one of today’s most
influential thinkers in the fields of media arts and digital culture – has
paired with award-winning new media artist and designer Andreas Kratky to
create the Soft Cinema project. They have also invited contributions from
leaders in other cultural fields: DJ Spooky, Scanner, George Lewis and
Jóhann Jóhannsson (music), servo and Andreas Angelidakis (architecture),
Schoenerwissen/Office for Computational Design (data visualization), and
Ross Cooper Studios (media design).

SOFT CINEMA: Navigating the Database is the Soft Cinema project’s first DVD
published and distributed by The MIT Press (2005). Although the three films
presented on the DVD reference the familiar genres of cinema, the process by
which they were created and the resulting aesthetics fully belong to the
software age. They demonstrate the possibilities of soft(ware) cinema - a
'cinema' in which human subjectivity and the variable choices made by custom
software combine to create films that can run infinitely without ever
exactly repeating the same image sequences, screen layouts and narratives.

'Mission to Earth' is a science fiction allegory of the immigrant
experience. It adopts the variable choices and multi-frame layout of the
Soft Cinema system to represent ‘variable identity’. 'Absences' is a lyrical
black and white narrative that relies on algorithms normally deployed in
military and civilian surveillance applications to determine the editing of
video and audio. 'Texas' is a ‘database narrative’, which assembles its
visuals, sounds, narratives, and even the identities of its characters from
multiple databases.

The DVD was designed and programmed so that there is no single version of
any of the films. All the elements – including screen layout, the visuals
and their combination, the music, the narrative, and the length – are
subject to change every time the film is viewed.

The development of Soft Cinema project was made possible by the commissions
from ZKM Center for Art and Media and the BALTIC, The Centre for
Contemporary Art. The resulting computer-driven installations and films have
been exhibited in museums, galleries, media and film festivals around the
world, including ZKM, Karlsruhe; the ICA, London; SENEF, Seoul; the ICC,
Tokyo; DEAF, Rotterdam, Transmediale, Berlin; and Chelsea Art Museum, New

Lev Manovich is the author of The Language of New Media
(The MIT Press, 2001) which is hailed as "the most suggestive and broad
ranging media history since Marshall McLuhan." He is Professor of Visual
Arts, University of California, San Diego and a
researcher at California Institute for Telecommunications and Information
Technology www.calit2.net.

Andreas Kratky has been responsible for media design and co-direction of a
number of groundbreaking new media projects, including the award-winning
DVDs That’s Kyogen and Bleeding Through – Layers of Los Angeles 1920-1986
(both published by ZKM).
