Rhizome is the Google of Flash-Based Art

Posted by Eryk Salvaggio | Tue Jan 30th 2007 1:06 a.m.

Hi all,

I am looking for a piece of web art that was flash-based and therefore completely invisible to google.

The project was essentially a semiotics riff on apples, from adam and eve to newtons apple to the Beatle's record label, etc. As I recall, all the ideas shared between apple symbols were linked to one another.

Sounds cool, right? So what the hell was it, and is it still around anywhere?

*BONUS QUERY!* Since I'm already using Rhizome as a google proxy, do any coders have any ideas on why full-screen pop up windows with extraordinarily large amounts of css-formatted text would block out scroll bars in firefox, regardless of how
javascript opens the window? And no, this is not a homework assignment. :)

Cheers,
-eryk

    Hi Eryk,
    The name of the work is either Apple or A is for Apple. It's by a
    Canadian artist who's name I am trying to remember.
    Ah yes, David Clark. It's at http://www.aisforapple.net/

    Pall,

    You are much slower than Google. Please work on that. Thanks.

    My coffee maker broke down the other day so I'm running a bit slower
    than usual.
