Neighborhood Public Radio, a 01SJ project, selected for 2008 Whitney Biennial

Neighborhood Public Radio is an independent, artist-run radio project committed to providing an alternative media platform for artists, activists, musicians, and community members.

Their motto is: If it's in the neighborhood and it makes noise...we hope to put it on the air.

Neighborhood Public Radio has been named "Best Super Local Radio Station" by San Francisco magazine and has been featured in Punk Planet, Artforum, and the Chicago Reader. As a traveling band of guerilla broadcasters, folks from NPR have hosted thematic broadcasts far and wide, including both Artist's Television Access and Southern Exposure Gallery in San Francisco's Mission District, Chicago's Version 5 Festival, and a recent trip to collaborate with the neighborly media folks of in Novi Sad, Serbia (a trip made possible by a grant from CEC Artslink).

Use the jukebox to hear NPR's adventures from the storefront at Artist's Television Access in San Francisco's Mission District, or in Hamburg, Germany in July, or in San Jose for the ISEA/ZeroOne festival last August.

Spectropia by Toni Dove planned for 01SJ 2008 festival

Spectropia is a cinema-scale interactive film/performance event, a scratchable movie performed by video DJs as improvising performers who are playing a movie instrument. This sci-fi hybrid features time travel, telepathy, and elements of film noir. The audience will be able to see through a character's eyes, hear their interior thoughts, and even talk with the characters. Spectropia is a time travel drama that uses the metaphor of supernatural possession to investigate identity.

Projected on multiple screens and performed as an interactive experience with the participation of audience members, Spectropia will be a fabulous addition to the festival. To find out more about Spectropia and its creator, Toni Dove, visit
