“Happy New Year to all of our –empyre- subscribers as we prepare to launch our ninth year as a list-serve hosting approximately 1400 subscribers. Since 2002 Melinda Rackham has launched the website from subtle.net. We thank her for all of the energy and support that she has provided in –empyre’s- initial inception and many years of nurturance. Cornell University has agreed to host the site on their library server so you will notice that our URL has changed. Stay tuned to our new URL at empyre.library.cornell.edu and watch our new site evolve over the next few months.

We are incredibly proud to launch into our 2011 line up of discussions and welcome Simon Biggs to moderate the first discussion of the year. While Simon will be introducing the next topic, we thought it might be appropriate to send along a recap of the history and activities of –empyre- over the last several years.

-empyre- soft-skinned space is a global community of new media artists, curators, theorists, producers, and others who participate in monthly thematic discussions via an email list serve. The online discussions facilitate critical perspectives on contemporary cross-disciplinary issues, practices and events in networked media. Anyone interested can register to receive posts and participate following the link for joining at http://empyre.library.cornell.edu/.

The list is currently co-managed by Renate Ferro (USA) and Tim Murray (USA) with the help of Gabriel Menotti (UK), Nicholas Ruiz III (USA), and Simon Biggs (UK). –empyre- also welcomes guest moderators who organize discussions for one month. it enters its ninth year, empyre- soft-skinned space continues to be a platform dedicated to the plurality of global perspectives reaching out beyond the Northern Hemisphere to Asia and Latin America.

The past nine years of archived monthly discussions can be accessed (here). These -empyre- archives are currently archived by Pandora, a project of the National Library of Australia, dedicated to preserving online publications of national significance for future generations and by the Rose Goldsen Archive, as a repository of emergent ideas amongst those working at the leading edge of contemporary practice.

In January 2002, -empyre- soft-skinned space was launched by network artist, critic, and curator, Melinda Rackham (AU). -empyre- was conceived as research forum for Rackham’s PhD research at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, Australia. Structured as an experimental peer arena, the community grew exponentially and within the first year Adrian Miles (AU) and Rebecca Cannon (AU) joined briefly as facilitators. Long-term facilitators Christina McPhee USA) and Michael Arnold Mages (USA) were invited to the -empyre- curatorium soon after, and during the next years they were joined by Jim Andrews (CA) and Felix Sattler (AU/GER). In 2005 Tracey Meziane (AU) and Marcus Bastos (BR) joined the team, and in 2006 and 2007 it was extended with Sérgio Basbaum (BR),(USA) Renate Ferro (USA) and Tim Murray (USA) Ferro and Murray now serve as the list’s managing moderators with the team of Nicholas Ruiz III USA), Gabriel Menotti (UK), (BR), and Simon Biggs (UK).

The -empyre- global community has supported several special projects over its nine-year history. It was featured as part of documenta 12’s Magazine Project conducting three moderated conversations in 2006 and 2007. In 2008, -empyre- collaborated with the Anderson Art Ranch, in Snowmass, Colorado, to offer two Presidential Full Merit Scholarships to members of the -empyre- community. -empyre- also has collaborated with institutions and festivals to produce dynamic online forums for physically located events. Some of those events have included the Cornerhouse in Manchester, Marcos Weskamp’s Social Circles visualization time slice of the list dynamics, in 2008 in San Francisco a special conference with City Light Books on Paul Virilio, in 2009, a special panel on “viral marketing” at Exit Art, New York City, and in 2010 a discussion held in conjunction with The Making Sense Colloquium at the Centre Pompidou, Paris.

The moderating team looks forward to a new year of discussions in 2011 and wishes all of its subscribers a Happy New Year.”

Managing Co-Moderators
