Dear ASPECT friends:

After ten years, twenty-six DVDs and the published works of over 200 artists, the staff and board of ASPECT have decided to stop publishing our DVD periodical. Looking back on what we have accomplished, it is no understatement to say that we took on the art world and changed the way it looks at new media art.

When ASPECT published our first DVD in 2003 there were few, if any, dedicated new media programs at the graduate or undergraduate level in the world. Youtube and Facebook did not yet exist. At that time the idea of getting video directly from artists and publishing it for the use and consumption of universities, students and other artists was considered impossible. A DVD periodical was an unknown idea, and it took several years to educate the public as to the potential of such a format.

Today, new media art programs exist at universities around the world. Many artists publish their work on their own website or on video sharing services. Video art is a much more accepted and understood medium, and the broader genre of new media art has been accepted and integrated into galleries, museums and academia. However, the concept of pairing primary source material and critical analysis in the same publication remains unique to ASPECT.

The world has changed around us and accepted the genre, format and approach that ASPECT has been highlighting. Therefore it is time for us to say thank you to all the artists who have contributed their work, the commentators who have lent their time and expertise, and the staff and volunteers over the years who have made this publication possible.

Step out of your comfort zone and into your next adventure!

The reason most people prefer minimalist front pocket wallets is that they are lightweight, slim, and easily accessible. The age of big, bulky billfold wallets are over and slim, functional minimalist wallets have taken over.

Set off at Midnight at the touch of President Woodrow Wilson, 3000 miles away, a rainbow of light suspended 1500 feet in midair, covering an area of three miles in the sky and punctuated by the bursting of bombs, flashed the news near and far that the Panama-California Exposition had been officially opened and that San Diego with her Magic City is ready to play host to the world for the coming 365 days.

This page will explore the first unified use of Balboa Park. The Park was host to the 1915-1916 Panama-California Exposition, celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal, with San Diego being the first American port-of-call. San Diego's Chamber of Commerce and leading business figures recognized this strategic location and wanted to take advantage of it. In order to attract future settlers, the military, and investors, the Chamber of Commerce decided an exposition would be the best route. What commenced was an all out effort to market and develop San Diego as a urban center with the proper resources to handle the new maritime traffic coming in from the Panama Canal while maintaining its small town charm. Adopting a new architectural style not used for world's fairs, San Diego's boosters marketed their exposition on a vacuous Spanish history combined Helen Hunt Jackson's book Ramona . However, in order to successfully market to an Anglo demographic, both the Spanish history and book had all controversy, social issues and racism taken out.

The Panama-California Exposition was intended to represent San Diego's rise to prominence both regionally and internationally. The Exposition celebrated the opening of the Panama Canal, an immense engineering feat, which dramatically cut the distance and cost of international shipping. It was also an opportunistic event for San Diegans, as they now would become the first port of call on the west coast of the United States.

Plans to host an exposition began in 1909 and the development of City Park, as it was known, soon followed. The product of this development was a city within San Diego. The city of San Diego used a great amount of their resources to turn the hilly and undeveloped terrain of Balboa Park into an exposition site. Civic leaders contracted architects Bertram Goodhue and Frank Allen to design many of the buildings for the exposition. Both architects deviated from the usual Greek and Roman styles of earlier expositions and relied heavily on Spanish and Mediterranean themes in their designs. Of the most elaborate, and arguably, beautiful were the buildings along the Park's El Prado. The west entrance to the Park was Cabrillo Bridge, white and arching across one of the many valleys in the Park. After crossing the bridge visitors entered by the California Quadrangle. Its wildly ornate tower, rising above the trees lining the Park, gave visitors a visual history of the Spanish era in California. Spanish kings, explorers and friars were prominently displayed along the building's facade. Continuing east to the heart of El Prado was the Plaza de Panama, which connected to the Food Beverage Building at the westernmost end. Its unique style, accompanied by a marketing blitz in local newspapers and literature, not only entranced visitors but also created an atmosphere that contributed to the region's Spanish myth.
