rocket noise . rocket sounds. call For Noise . call For Sound

this year at Burning Flipside ( there will be a 40'+ tall rocket ( the rocket will exist onsite for about 3 days, at which time it will either take off or burn to the ground. my guess is the rocket will take off, but i am an optimist. it would be nice for the rocket to make some subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) sounds. 3-5 independent sound sources: cd players and simple computer speakers. each set up will be placed somewhere in the rocket. somewhere pretty. or not. we shall see. simple is nice. from each little sound source will come noises and sounds that various people contribute. read more for details on how to contribute.

Tempography is a certain way of directing one's camera eye to the world and discover details, small movements, minimal changes. It is an international video art project that wants submissions from you! We are building up towards a group exhibition, in a gallery and on public screens (to intrigue the accidental viewer), that will take place when we have reached our aim of 250 tempographs. Please have a look at the website to get an understanding of the concept.

Banksy's visit to New York's galleries

"Dressed as a British pensioner, over the last few days Banksy entered each of the galleries [The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art,The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Natural History] and attached one of his own works, complete with authorative name plaque and explanation.

He says - "This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high strength glue." Banksy continues -"They're good enough to be in there, so I don't see why I should wait"
