Mark Amerika is into text -- as sound, as image, and as good old fashioned signifiers. His latest, 'FILMTEXT,' uses a nifty Flash interface to further explore/exploit these textual manifestations in a slick, post-ascii context. Amerika enhances his dialogue with abstract film loops, ambient audio loops, and a clever form of hybrid actionscript poetry. The interface itself is reminiscent of Yael Kanarek's 'World of Awe' in terms of its chrome windows and rocky topography, but the overall "voice" is Amerika's own. Refreshing to see an old school guru evolving with the tech. - Curt Cloninger
