SWITCH Journal is proud to announce the launch of Issue 22: A Special
Preview Edition to ISEA 2006/ ZeroOne San Jose.
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
correspondent 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 the themes of ZeroOne San Jose/ ISEA 2006. While some
of those featured in SWITCH are part of the festival and symposium,
others provide a complimentary perspective.
Issue 22 focuses on the intersections of CADRE and ZeroOne San Jose/
ISEA 2006. Over the past year, students at the CADRE Laboratory for
New Media have been working intensely with artists on two different
residency projects for the festival â€“ â€œSocial Networkingâ€ with Antoni
Muntadas and the City as Interface Residency, â€œKaraoke Iceâ€ with
Nancy Nowacek, Marina Zurkow & Katie Salen. Carlos Castellanos,
James Morgan, Aaron Siegel, all give us a sneak preview of their
projects which will be featured at the ISEA 2006 exhibition. Alumni
Sheila Malone introduces ex_XX:: post position, an exhibition
celebrating the 20th anniversary of the CADRE Institute that will run
as a parallel exhibition to ZeroOne San Jose/ ISEA 2006. LeE
Montgomery provides a preview of NPR (Neighborhood Public Radio)
presence at the festival including a special daily show collaboration
with our SWITCH Team. San Jose State University and CADRE are proud
to host the Pacific Rim New Media Summit prior to the Symposium on
August 7th and 8th.
In addition to these special issues, SWITCH will be covering the
Festival and Symposium by updating their current issue with fresh
content 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 our own
daily news show throughout the week of ZeroOne San Jose/ISEA2006.
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.
