Live Art and Science on the Internet

The Internet has become a venue and medium for art that continues the
impulse to broadcast ideas to a worldwide audience. Leonardo/ISAST and Guest
Editor Martha Wilson, Founding Director of Franklin Furnace, seek texts on
the subject of ³Live Art and Science on the Internet² for a series of
special sections in both the international print journal Leonardo and online
at www.leonardo.info.

As artists and others produce live art on the Internet, liveness, presence,
mediatization, online activism, surveillance, and identity/gender, among
other related issues, are being explored. We seek texts documenting such
work as well as texts on the history of this field of practice and the
vocabulary being used to describe it. We also seek texts from scientists who
have used the Internet to conduct science investigations live on line.

Guest Editor Martha Wilson and her peer review committee seek Statements
(500 words and one image describing one work), Notes (2,500 words and 6
images describing a body of work), Galleries (750-word curator's
introduction plus 10 images by individual artists, each with a 200-word
caption) and Articles (5,000 words and 12 images). Texts describing the work
of an artist or scientist must be written by the artists or scientists
themselves, with co-authors if necessary.

This call for papers is open for 2004, 2005 and 2006.

Please send initial statement of interest with a brief explanation of your
project to Martha Wilson Leonardo at franklinfurnace.org.  For author
guidelines, follow the link ³Info for Authors² on Leonardo On-Line
