|Title:||The PIGVISION Quarterly No. 1|
|Issue:||15 August 1998|
PIGVISION's Strategic Business Planning introduces The PIGVISION Quarterly as a new marketing feature and a service for all regular and occasional visitors of PIGVISION's web site who leave their address at the administration (I must admit, some small-scale market research added a few more addresses to the list). There is a German and an English edition. Further market segmentation has not been planned, which is why people within the art world will read the same quarterly updates as experts working in the pig industry and in the domain of pig science. The PIGVISION Quarterly will inform you on PIGVISION's current and upcoming research projects operating at the interface of art and science. It will also announce new stuff on PIGVISION's web site and hopefully add to a lively debate on art matters in research...

A major hurdle at this stage is locating an adequate site near Melbourne where the behaviour experiments with pigs can be conducted. Your help is appreciated! Meanwhile, the colourful cubes will be presented to the public at this year's Melbourne Fringe Festival. If you happen to be in Melbourne (Australia) in October 1998, please do check the Fringe Festival Program (http://www.vicnet.net.au/~fringe )
There is also another exciting research project coming up, called "Codename SISYPHUS", which will be presented in PIGVISION's next bulletin (November issue). Keep your mailbox open!
