J. R. Carpenter and The OBORO New Media Lab invite you to the launch of the new web project, "How I Loved the Broken Things of Rome" http://luckysoap.com/brokenthings
"How I Loved the Broken Things of Rome" is an online-only web art project which reflects upon certain gaps between the fragment and the whole, between the local and the tourist, between what is known of history and what is speculative. I tried to capture something of the impossibly elusive and fragmentary nature of language amid Rome’s broken columns, headless statues and other, often unidentifiable, ruins.
Launch Party: Friday, April 22nd, 2005
6 p.m. (presentation at 6:30 p.m.)
4001 Berri Street, 2nd Floor, Montreal
This project is produced with the support of OBORO, Residency Program, New Media Lab and the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Quebec.
