Hovagimyan a Performance and New Media artist based in New York has harnessed the power of this seething population. His ongoing Rant series started in the 70’s. In the raging shadows of punk and performance art, the content of these works have evolved while maintaining the raw energy and volume of the first recorded rant. ——-> Grow Your Own Media Lab (The Graphic Novel) by Access Space. Text by James Wallbank, Pictures by Michael Tesh, Design by Scott Hawkins. Review by Rob Myers. Access Space is an open access media lab based in Sheffield. Access Space encourages people to learn how to use hardware re-used from local companies and Free Software from the GNU project and others. This saves money and builds skills. Since being founded in the year 2000 Access Space has thrived where many community and government schemes have failed. This has drawn attention from groups eager to understand and reproduce its success. This has led to the Arts-Council-funded study “Grow Your Own Media Lab”, of which the final report is the graphic novel of the same name “Grow Your Own Media Lab (The Graphic Novel)” or GYOML for short. ——-> The Jeremy Bailey Interview on Netbehaviour. Interview conducted by Marc Garrett. Canadian artist Jeremy Bailey recently completed a five week residency at Furtherfield.org which culminated with his first UK exhibition, The Jeremy Bailey Show at HTTP Gallery, in North London (Sept 19th – Oct 19th 2008). The centrepiece of this exhibition is ‘WarMail’ commissioned by HTTP/Furtherfield.org and completed during his residency. As part of the residency experience Jeremy was invited to take part in an interview on the Netbehaviour list. We discussed the works in the exhibition and the critical approaches and contemporary contexts that inspire him to create his art work. We also discussed ‘WarMail’ which was performed with a participating audience at the HTTP Gallery at the opening night.
