Independent Nader
to speak on campus

By Dariush Shata
m: mmcxv mm

Presidential candidate
Ralph Nader will visit UK
today on one of two col-
lege stops in the state.

Nader, an independent
candidate from Connecti-
cut, will speak at the Stu-
dent Center’s Worsham
Theater from 1 to 3 pm.
He will also speak
at the University of
Louisville at 6:30


Student Gov-
ernment President
Rachel Watts said
SG didn’t invite
Nader's campaign,
but instead Nader’s
people contacted
$0 with the desire
to come speak to
students for free.

“It was very surpris-
ing," Watts said.

86 is sponsoring Nader
to make the event open to
the entire stu-
dent body. Un-
der university
regulations, if
a political can-
didate is invit-
ed to speak to
a student or-
only people
from that or-
g a n iz a t i o it
may attend,
Watts said.
Only SG-spon-
sored political
events are
open to the
public, she said.

“He wants any student
to be able to come," Watts
said. “The only way every
student can come is if SG
sponsors it."

Preparations are being
made to accommodate 200
to 300 students, and Watts
said she hopes many stu-
dents will hear Nader, re-


“I think people
are just really
interested in
what he has to

gardless of their political
orientation or beliefs.

“I think that if stu-
dents attend, they won't
walk away disappointed,"
she said.

Watts said she is over-
joyed at the opportunity to
have a presidential candi-
date speak at UK and,
though 80 is sponsoring
Nader’s speech, it is not

endorsing Nader.

“I think people
are just really in-
terested in what he
has to say,” she
said. “He really is

t more than six feet tall. not only is Jere Sullivan a big man —— he has big ideas.
His contribution to Lexington‘s 2004 ideaFestival involves projecting the Beatles
film A Hard Day's Night onto a very large building. The UK architecture gradu-
ate said he hopes this will drive home his more general idea of bringing both visual me—
dia and the art world “out of the box.“
Robert Shay. dean of the College of Fine Arts. said he thinks such public displays of
art are wonderful. “I don‘t think you can display too much public art,” he said, but added
that the results can always backfire if the art is not well-received by the public.
Shay said that in Sullivan’s case, however, this wouldn’t be a problem. “My hat is off
to the ideaFestival (and to Sullivan)," he said.
A Hard Day's Night will be projected onto a downtown building Friday night. For

Controversial Cremaster comes to UK Saturday '

By Kevm Noser
mt rrutucrv mm

lt's mysterious. It's controversial. And it's
a daylong event.

it’s The (‘remaster (Ii'cle. eccentric direc-
tor Matthew Barney's film series exploring
life. death and sexual orientation. And it's
coming in its all its 7~hour glory to the
Student Center's Worsham Theater on Satur-

"Matthew Barney. whether you like his
Work or not. legitimized the field of new me-
dia in one bold show." said Doreen Maloney. a
professor of new media who helped bring the
film to UK. “(Barneyi creates his own mythol‘
ogy and characters to express his themes."

(‘remaster is a series of five films that
combine to form a lengthy viewing experi
ence. and while each part has distinctly dif-
ferent plots and motifs ranging from a
gothic Western to a reenactment of a Mason
ic myth that when viewed together. share a
unity of theme. The first part is completely
nonverbal. which might loosely reflect the


first stage of human development. The films
then stylistically progress to mirror later
stages of life.

This film series might also be allegorical
for "some sort of mega-abstract creation
metaphor." said UK alum Garrett Sparks.
now a University of Michigan medical stu‘
dent. According to Sparks. who saw the work
while it was at the Guggenheim Museum in
New York (Tity. the title has biological conno

Sparks said the ”cremaster cycle" literal-
ly refers to the muscular contractions of the
cremaster. a part of the male spermatic cord
that “raises and lowers the testicles to pre
serve the function of sperm." The cremaster
also causes the formation of sexual differen-
tiation in infants.

Maloney, the new media professor. said
the films are about the “struggle between the
sexes. sexuality and the power in relation-

And people need to see it for themselves,
she said "People need to form an opinion

about the cycle. to find out what is going on.“

Maloney said she believes the films re-
quire “going with a critical mind, and really
sitting down to find out how much (of Bar-
ney's film) is real and how much is spin."

According to Sparks, “Many people criti-
cize modern art because they aren’t able to
respond to it emotionally. i don’t think that
applies to Barney's work. Positively or nega-
tively. you'll likely respond in a way that will
be personally important."

Maloney also said the contrast between
masculinity and femininity apparent in Cre-
master is nothing new.

“(Though) the same old hierarchies ap
pear, the packaging is exquisite." she said.

This packaging includes “dazzling mo
ments of lyric images." she said, and the im-
agery is “startlingly grotesque, but also in-
credibly beautiful.”

"The colors and the cinematography are
incredible.” Sparks said.

Cremaster has been widely accepted by
the art community The work premiered.

with the help of Palm Films. as an installa—
tion at the Guggenheim.

Saturday's showing is attracting an audi-
ence from across the south and Midwest. in-
cluding a group from Virginia that hopes to
show Cremaster there.

Support for bringing the film to UK also
has come from the Lexington community -.
Jim Clark. president of the Lexington Arts
and Cultural Council. led the council to join
with the College of Fine Arts to bring Bar-
ney‘s work to campus.

The films have been known to cause quite
a stir with viewers.

“I‘ve never dropped acid," Sparks said.
“but I’m pretty sure this was n'ippier."

:Gator back in Alabama zoo

::American alligator.
: After creating a national
' stir when he disappeared last
week during Hurricane lvan.
. the Alabama Gulf Coast
Zoo's star attraction was lo-
cated Tuesday night in a
drainage ditch inside the zoo.
A team of gator trackers cap-
tured him with a noose and
heavy duct tape. State troop-
ers and local police officers
helped haul him to a bear
pen. before returning him to
the shallow pond where he
has spent the last 15 years.


“He was lost and scared.
the poor guy.“ said Tim
Williams. a gator wrestler
and media spokesman for
Gatorland. an Orlando park
that sent a team of experts to
search for Chucky. “He's hap
py to be home."

Chucky is accustomed to
daily hand-fed chicken lunch-
es. He enjoyed an enormous
meal before the hurricane.
and because gators can en-
dure long periods without
food. zoo officials were less
worried that he would starve
than they were that he would
eat. Chucky has learned to
associate people with food.

"We're glad he's home.
and we're glad he's no longer
a danger.” said zoo director
Patty Hall. “Tomorrow. he‘ll
get his chicken again."

Ivan Virtually decimated

the nonprofit zoo. Hall can-
not say if the zoo will ever be
able to reopen. but she has al-
ready received donations
from people all over the
country who've heard about
(‘hucky's plight.

Yesterday. Hall returned
several large cats to their
concrete houses, but she is
still keeping 257 animals
from kangaroos to yaks in
trucks parked at her home in
nearby Elberta. No animals
have died. but the smell and
noise that they produce are
not exactly ideal for a resi-
dential neighborhood.

"We've been devastated
by this storm." she said. “But

Jere Sullivan, the man behind the
idea of displaying public art
through the realm of digital
media, poses in front of the
Phoenix building in downtown
Lexington. Ihe building will serve
as the cinema screen for a film
that will be shown in Phoenix
Park Friday. Sullivan, who gradu-
ated with an architecture degree
from UK in 1994, now works in
Lexington and owns his own busi-
ness. He hopes that his idea can
be expanded to other cities and
become a series in Lexington as a
forum for artists to display their
craft for large crowds of people
to see.

man element not just digi—
tal “cutups” and computer
printouts was considered
crucial to a franchise‘s game-

Yet Newhouse is not yes-
terday's scout. At 29. he truly
represents Generation X,
with his laptop. digital
recorder. cell phone and on-
going romance with the Web.

Newhouse. the son of for-
mer Cowboys fullback Robert
Newhouse. grew up in a foot-
ball atmosphere, for sure. He
also recently earned his real
estate broker's license. and
this past summer he attend
ed an NFL-sponsored execu-
tive education program run
by the Stanford School of
Business. He already has
been with the Cardinals five
years: he has no desire to be
a lifetime scout.

Newhouse attends the
Falcons-Rams game not to
uncover any incredibly re-
vealing piece of information.
Rather. he‘s there because his
coach. Dennis Green, wants
to know more about the Fal-
cons. who will host the Cardi-
nals this Sunday. than he
might learn by just reading
the voluminous printouts
he‘ll receive on Atlanta.

“His report is part of the
puzzle," Green said. “You
don’t want something to hap-
pen in our game that we
should have known but did.
n’t because we didn‘t send an
advance scout the week be-
fore. There just is stuff you
can pick up live, I think. that
you can‘t get otherwise.“

So Newhouse spends 20
weekends throughout late
summer and fall sitting in
stadiums usually thousands
of miles from where the Car-
dinals are playing. hardly
knowing anyone in the build-
ing. trying to be the human
element that might help in-
crease the comfort level of
his coach.

Sure. he could tell Green
that. hey, you better contain
Vick. But that‘s hardly justi-
fication for this trip.

Instead, the Arizona
coaches found sitting on
their desks Monday a report
telling them every detail of
every drive and every substi—
tution. plus any sideline the-
atrics. Newhouse enters
most of the live information
into his computer as the
game progresses, using
forms he has developed.

On the plane ride home
that night. he transcribes the
tape and also adds observa-
tions. He starts with a quick.
objective summary, perhaps
400 words long. His goal is to
have the report finished by
the time he lands.

Green also wants New-
house to give him biographi-
cal information on each At-
lanta player.

Maybe some coach will
glean from all the compila-
tions something to give the
Cardinals an edge against At-
lanta. That‘s what this is all
about, looking for an edge.

Yet Newhouse, even after
all these years, wonders if
any of his hard work will
make a difference.

It’s a question that has
haunted advance scouts for-
ever, but particularly since
information on opponents is
now so readily available. The
report of the advance scout
was the coaches’ lone early,
up-to—date, factual synopsis of
that foe.

But now, tapes are ex-
changed the day after games
and spliced within hours.
The Denver Broncos. for ex-
ample, see no reason for hav-
ing an advance scout.

 ‘Wit' examines death w1

By Melissa Smith Mallery

The poetry of John

Donne is considered some of

the most complicated poetry
out there. and the main
character of Margaret Ed-
son's Wit has devoted her
entire life to the scholarly
study of his work.

understanding or sympa-

ly cold and distant.

in a flashback to Bear-
ing‘s days in the classroom.
Edson's depiction of the col-
lege classroom is haunting-
ly accurate.

A student trying to ex-
pound upon I)onne’s eva-

sion of his own questions is
described as selfdestruct-
ing. and this amusing char
acteristic is aptly acted by
Eric Ryan Seale.

The play concentrates on
Bearing’s dedication to
Donne' 5 poetry. and his
words are her only company

She finds safety in ana-
lyzing poetry. and the end of
the play focuses on the
analysis of one sentence:
“And death shall be no
more. death thou shalt die."

A breath separates life
from death in Donne’s Holy
Sonnet Death Be Not Proud,
as does the single breath
that punctuates the end of
Vivian‘s life.

BOT wise to delay Boone talks i

The UK Board of Trustees made a
wise decision Monday when it decided to
postpone discussions about a renovation
to the Hilary J. Boone Faculty Center.

Board members said they were
faced with too many questions sur-
rounding the 34.38 million project.

The appearance of the renovation
on the meeting’s agenda seemed to catch
some members off guard. President Lee
Todd didn't adequately address the issue
at the board’s retreat last month.

The decision to table discussion was
prudent for several reasons.

One of Todd's main reasons for
rushing the renovations was UK's need
for a swanky hall to host fundraisers.

But outgoing board chairman Steve

Reed made a valid point to the Kernel.


that a more effective means of fundrais-
ing might be to show a strong commit-
ment to investments that more directly
benefit students. Reed also pointed out
that most of the faculty he's spoken with
didn‘t support the renovations.

Quality faculty are bolting for lxrtter
offers elsewhere. and several classrooms
are in severe disrepair. While half the
funds raised for the Boone (‘enter were
specifically for its renovations. it stems
