i just can't understand this discussion... it is boring, anyway.

Anyway, rhizome.org is an intervention in reality, being "social
sculpture" or a "real non profit organization", or whatever.

PacMan Sounds

new track available !!!

pacman - partida1.mp3

PacMan Sounds is a project related to PacMan 1.0; now, the goal is to
make music from the pacman games sounds. These sounds have been captured
and manipulated with several sound editors. The vocals were done with voice
synthetizers softwares. No other kind of sound is used to make these
musics.

I would like to subscribe to RHIZOME_RARE again.

I (and a lot of people at this list) do some research about web art, and
this kind of e-mail just makes me lost some time clicking the "delete"
button of my e-mail program. There are a lot of great works, expositions
and ideas to talk about, and we end not talking about them, because
these messages just leave us too tired to think...

(excuse me if I seem to angry :)

bye,

Michel Foucault


hello list,

some months ago, somebody made an amazing site about Michel Foucault. It
has black background, it's done in Flash, and the sounds are great, too.
Do you remember the URL? thank you!
