# YLEM Forum: Patterns in Nature
Wednesday, July 13, 7:30 pm
NEW VENUE --RX Gallery and Bar
(No one under 21 allowed)
132 Eddy St., San Francisco, CA 94102

Getting there:
Two blocks from Powell St. BART Station
Parking garage across the street
Also near 5th and Mission Garage
Some on-street parking, but avoid Turk St.

This forum features Trudy Myrrh Reagan - patterns evident in nature, John Edmark - the math that underlies natural patterns, Scott Draves - software that mimics nature, and Deborah Kennedy - complex ecological interactions.

PROGRAM
Cellular Design

John Edmark will talk about his explorations that led to laser-cut sculptures and mosaics with cell-like structures. He will describe how spiral geometry, Phi (the golden ratio), and the Fibonacci numbers have all contributed to his creative process. A number of his pieces—several of which are kinetic and interactive—will be on display. 

John is a lecturer at Stanford’s Department of Art and Art History, where he teaches design. He has an M.S. in Design from Stanford and an M.S. in Computer Science from Columbia University. Before moving to the Bay Area, he did research at Bell Labs on 3D virtual environments .

My Life among the Patterns

Hexagonal patterns, branching and erosion, fluid flow, you name it, Trudy “Myrrh” Reagan has been using them in her art since 1970. Her strategy has been to use craft or painting media as analogs for the phenomena she admires. Learning why patterns propogate as they do has led her into the realms of science and philosophy. 

Myrrh is the founder of YLEM, and before that, a founding member of the California Crafts Museum, (now merged with the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, SF). She will share not only her work and philosophy, but some hands-on pattern making activities. http://www.myrrh-art.com

Environmental Interconnections
	
The elegant and often intricately crafted conceptual installations, performances and artworks by Deborah Kennedy communicate complex environmental themes through visual drama and metaphor. The artist's use of lighting, sound and symbolism brings issues such as the impact of pesticides on honeybees, the interdependence of life and the importance of sustainable technology to the public. 
	
Kennedy, a passionate educator, uses art as a teaching tool. Her own research into ecology creates a solid framework "to work at the growing edge, where we as a global community are struggling to create new visions that will help solve our environmental problems. My hope is that these new perceptions will help us change how we think about ourselves and our role in the world. Then, perhaps, we can begin to change our actions as individuals and larger communities."

Programming Dazzling Patterns 

Scott Draves a.k.a. Spot is a visualist and programmer residing in San Francisco. He is the creator of the Fractal Flame algorithm, the Bomb visual-musical instrument, and the Electric Sheep distributed screen-saver. All of Draves' software artworks are released as open source and distributed for free on the internet. 
	
His award-winning work has appeared in Wired Magazine, the Prix Ars Electronica, the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, and on the dance-floor at the Sonar festival in Barcelona. In 1997 Spot received a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University for a thesis on metaprogramming for media processing. Today he regularly projects live video for underground parties and at clubs, and self-publishes SPOTWORKS, a DVD of abstract animation synchronized with electronic music. http://www.spotworks.com

YLEM has a lively special interest group on patterns and visual math. To learn more, contact Trudy, trudymyrrh@earthlink.net

URGENT -- UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PROTESTS 
IN LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANCISCO, AND DAVIS

Stop Animal Exploitation Now http://saenonline.org
PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL ACTIVISTS AND EMAIL LISTS
Join The Fight Against Animal Experimentation at University of California Laboratories
    University of California Laboratories routinely perform cruel experiments on primates and on many other species.  Rhesus monkeys are confined to restraint chairs with electrodes inserted into their brains and restraining bars literally bolted to their skulls.  Experiments such as this often lead to diseases like encephalitis, meningitis, etc.  These brutal projects also deprive the primates of water for extended periods -- up to 23 hours per day for 5 days per week.
    Primates imprisoned in laboratories often are driven insane by captivity engaging in self-mutilation and stereotypical behavior.  
    Your help is need to bring an end to these heinous projects.  These experiments and more are paid for with your tax dollars.  We estimate that UC labs receive these funding amounts per year for animal experiments:

University of California, San Francisco -- $200 million 
University of California, Los Angeles -- $188 million
University of California, Davis -- $148 million

(Reverse Side Text Follows)

What: Green Convergence at Bohemia for Peace and Justice

When: Friday, July 15th- Sunday, July 17th Where: Bohemian Grove is located in the Sonoma County Russian River community of Monte Rio, near the intersection of Hwy. 116 and Bohemian Highway. It is accessible on the Sonoma Transit bus #20 from Santa Rosa Transit Mall.

Mark Your Calendar. Plan your mid-summer excursion to protest the war profiteers as they come to Bohemian Grove, yet again, to cremate their "Cares of the Marketplace". Join local Greens, veterans' groups, corporate responsibility organizations, faith groups, students, people who have never protested before, and the Green Party of California as they converge at Bohemian Grove and call for an end to the Carelessness of their leaders.

Why: Each year, in mid-summer, the elite members of the Bohemian Club in San Francisco gather for two weeks of revelry and "throwing off the cares of the marketplace" among the redwood groves along Sonoma County's Russian River. The club's members include many Presidents, past and present. George H.W. Bush are members, as well as the late Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and every Republican President since Herbert Hoover.

But the root of the Grove's power is the men who support the efforts of "their' presidents, like they have with the current war in the Middle East. Critics call these gatherings anything but the innocent camaraderie among a group of men who happen to carry the cares of the world on their shoulders all year and just want to party for a couple of weeks.

Corporation executives and owners at the highest levels have gathered with prominent men in politics at Bohemian Grove and built networks that critics say sustains their acquisition of power and wealth throughout the year.

Who: Groups and individuals so far endorsing the Convergence Include Green Party of California, Green Party of Sonoma County, Green Party of Humboldt Co., Green Party of Mendocino County, Emerald Greens, Bohemian Grove Action Network, Veterans for Peace, Mendocino, Veterans for Peace, Garberville, Bill Meyers, Democracy Unlimited*, Dave Cobb, Green Presidential candidate, Ralph Nader, green Presidential candidate. Peter Camejo, Green Vice-Presidential candidate, Peter Phillips, Sonoma State University faculty, expert on Bohemian Grove, International Indian Treaty Council, and a growing list

Cambridge)
When: Saturday, July 16, 12:00 - 1:00 PM

Free parking is available on side streets, as well as in a garage 
behind KFC.

The chickens raised by KFC's suppliers have their beaks sliced off, 
and many suffer crippling leg deformities because they are bred to 
grow so large so quickly that their legs cannot support their weight. 
These normally friendly and inquisitive birds are packed into broiler 
sheds where they are forced to breathe ammonia-laden air, the result 
of living in their own waste. When it comes time for slaughter, 
chickens are often still conscious as their throats are slit or when 
they are dumped into tanks of scalding water used for feather 
removal. For further information about PETA's KFC campaign, visit

# clear channel/ fire arts festival
  i guess i should have looked closer at who the 
CRUCIBLE was recieving funds from for this event .... 
the one sponsor that stood out is CLEAR CHANNEL. 
a company that is in league w/ the bush administration 
and the fcc to selectivly take away our rights to free speech 
and freedom of expression..... 
i'd also be concerned w/ signing over your rights to the 
performance materials you'll be using, you have no rights 
to publicize your group for this event, & they get the sole 
rights to make money off any video footage they get without 
giving the artists a cut.....the contract we recieved had over a 100 pages missing from it, who in their right mind would sign this? what the fuck?... 
how could this happen? who the fuck let this happen? 
you might as well sell your soul to satan, you fools..... 

hey, i love the crucible and all it has to offer, but come on.... 
do you not know about clear channel??

More About the Dixie Revival 
On June 16th in the middle of the night, someone actually smashed Carol Queen and Robert’s beloved truck, Dixie, when it was parked on the street. Carol and Robert were not in it, so they were not injured, but it was a hit and run accident, so there is no insurance to cover it. Dixie is truly a great truck, and she has done much volunteer work for the Center for Sex and Culture, carting around everything from food to furniture. She is very progressive and a hard worker. 

Dixie (her actual name) is a very historic truck! Reportedly she was once owned by a lesbian attorney couple who helped win Lawrence vs. Texas. The owner before Carol and Robert was a public interest attorney who defended the elderly against fraud. 

The damages total to Dixie over $5,000 and it cost nearly $2,000.00 to get her running again. After that Robert will try to do the remaining work. They need this truck to keep the Center for Sex and Culture running, of course. Founding and running the CSC has been a labor of love for them; neither Carol nor Robert gets any kind of payment from that work. Robert’s on disability and Carol handles the rest of their bills with her freelance work and her half-time job at Good Vibrations.

# "Is San Francisco Going to Pot?"
Featuring: Drug Policy Alliance director Ethan Nadelmann and Mayor Gavin Newsom 
Tuesday July 26, 2005, 5:30-7:30 pm 
Jewish Community Center of San Francisco 
3200 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94118 
http://www.drugpolicy.org/events/event.cfm?eventID=543 
FREE lecture on drug policy reform
 San Francisco is once again at the center of a national debate. More than 80% of San Franciscans say medical marijuana should be legally available and a majority even supports regulating, controlling, and taxing marijuana more or less like alcohol. But the federal government says "no" to medical marijuana, just as patients, advocates, bureaucrats, and politicians in San Francisco attempt to create a regulatory system in response to the proliferation of "pot clubs." Will "the city that knows how" do the right thing? Mayor Gavin Newsom and Drug Policy Alliance director Ethan Nadelmann will tackle the controversial question, "Is San Francisco Going to Pot?"

In our vision, central cities and existing suburbs are desirable places to live bounded by a protected greenbelt. This greenbelt includes agricultural, wilderness, habitat, watershed, and recreational lands and is recognized as essential to the Bay Area's environmental and economic health. All residents share a high quality of life, including access to affordable housing, a good education, cultural amenities, effective public transportation and open space. Finally, there is a widely shared ethic that recognizes the region's interdependence and a system of governance that fosters effective public decision-making to address regional needs.
