Meta CC
An installation by Alex Killough, Tyler Nordgren and Chuck Clark
Meta-CC seeks to create an open forum for realtime discussion, commentary, and cross-referncing of electronic news and televised media. By combining strategies employed in web-based discussion forums, tele-text subtitling, on demand video streaming, and search engines, the Open Captioning format employed by Meta-CC will allow users to gain multiple perspectives and resources engaging current events. The Fox News Channel in the U.S. will be archived as their initial source material, but the system is adaptable for use with any cable news or television network.

Admission: $5 suggested donation. Be the first on your block to receive a copy of the new Select #8 DVD containing works featured at SMF2 and 3!

The Guerrilla News Network's Media ®evolution

The Guerrilla News Network's Media ®evolution
High School 1542 N Milwaukee Ave 3rd Floor

The media sucks. But you already knew that. The Guerrilla News Network doesn't just offer up another cranky complaint. In this unique multi-media presentation, the media revolutionaries from GNN tell the story of how over the course of four years they went from 300 visitors a day on their fledgling alt. news web site built from equipment cobbled together from a dying dot.com, to over 25,000 visitors today. Along the way they've produced music videos for Eminem and Ad Rock, and a series of Sundance-awarding winning political shorts that have become underground cult classics. This fall, they're releasing a new book, True Lies, a new feature documentary about Iraq, BattleGround: 21 Days on the Empire's Edge, and have a controversial feature film starring Rosario Dawson in the works. These digital Don Quixotes will share their experiences on the frontlines of the info-war, as they discuss the challenges (and opportunities) of media consolidation, the promise (and pratfalls) of low-cost digital journalism, how to get covered (the right way) by the mainstream press, and, most importantly, what tools, skills and talents you need to start your own media revolution.

Admission: free with SMF3 pass or $5 suggested donation

SMF3 Closing party!
October 22, 2004
8pm

Buddy / High School / Heaven
1542- 1550 N Milwaukee Ave 2nd /3rd floors
Join us for our last evening of SMF3 exhibitions, screenings and
performances. Guaranteed to please. We are featuring a remixed and recently added line-up of work. Details below.

Special Screening of Barnstormers videos:
High School (1542 N Milwaukee 3rd Floor)
9pm

The Barnstormers are a collective of New York artists who create large-scale collaborative paintings, films and performances. The group formed in 1999 after a pilgrimage to the rural town of Cameron, North Carolina. During the trip, twenty-five artists painted dozens of barns, tractor-trailers, and shacks. Consequently, the tiny tobacco farming community became the unlikely Mecca for the urban collective. The Barnstormers continue to interpret and communicate the visual, cultural, and spiritual awakenings inspired by their trips to the south.

The Chicago premier of their video Letter to the Prez and the Gasbook
feature Apostrophe will screen from 9-10:30pm at High School. And hopefully weather permitting on the roof of heaven.
