PORTFOLIO (3)
BIO
My work is about ethics and it asks the oldest of questions: what does it mean to live a good life?
What is our responsibility to each other, to our families, to those with disabilities, to the past? In the
face of tragedy how do we reaffirm that life is good. These are the themes of my work.

I am an associate professor at Austin Peay State University and live in Clarksville, TN with my wife, Jennifer,
and our four children, Marlena, Aidan, Hope and Elliott.

I also work in the audio/ video collaborative Black & Jones and perform in the vj duo [ fladry + jones ].

Terminal Announces the Launch of "Browser Poems" by xtine burrough


Dates:
Thu Dec 01, 2011 13:10 - Tue Dec 31, 2019

In Browser Poems, burrough has reinterpreted three classic works of literature from the 20th Century (“O Captain, My Captain”, “On the Road”, and “Waiting for You at the Mystery Spot”) using just two languages (HTML and CSS) in the browser as the primary agent of transformation. In the works, burrough is not interested in writing the foundational text for the poetic experience. Instead, her aim was to design a web user’s experience for the works. The works adhere to the confining graphic formatting rules of current web standards, and include text, hypertext, images, videos, and audio. In the language-image-browser redesign process, the meaning of the poems are affected as follows:

O Captain, My Captain
O BROWSER, MY BROWSER is a browser translation of Walt Whitman’s 1900 poem, “O Captain, My Captain” from Leaves of Grass. In the original poem, the death of a ship’s captain is an allegorical reference to the death of U.S. president Abraham Lincoln. In this reinterpretation, the allegory shifts to the impending death of the web. Here, short clips of YouTube videos (all 24 found by a search on the site using keywords from each line of the poem) provide a background noise, or a context, to interfere with or aid the reading of the poem.

On The Road
In 2007 burrough created hand-made bags for City Lights Bookstore as a public art intervention to celebrate the 50th anniversary year of the publication of On The Road. The original manuscript was notoriously produced on a single scroll of paper (or, many papers taped to each another) before Viking Press published the manuscript in 1957. The complete text is rendered as a continuous page in the browser. However all instances of the word “road” have been replaced with the word “browser.”

Waiting For You at the Mystery Spot
Adrienne Rich’s “Waiting For You at the Mystery Spot” (2000) is part of her 1998-2000 collection, Fox, which earned Rich the 2003 Yale Bollingen Prize for American Poetry. The judges acknowledged her “continuous poetic exploration and awareness of multiple selves.” In this language-image-browser redesign, the “Mystery Spot” (a California alternative tourist destination for gravitational anomaly lovers of all ages) takes on new meaning, or multiple selves, as the location of virtual Easter eggs relating to Rich’s text.

TERMINALapsu.org Announces Launch of "Infinite Glitch" by Ben Baker-Smith


Dates:
Tue Jan 25, 2011 09:14 - Tue Jul 31, 2012

Location:
Clarksville, Tennessee
United States of America

TERMINAL is pleased to announce the launch of "Infinite Glitch" by Ben
Baker-Smith. It is the fourth TERMINAL Award project to launch this
academic year.
Every day an incomprehensible number of new digital media files are
uploaded to hosting sites across the internet. Far too many for any one
person to consume. Infinite Glitch is a stream-of-conciousness representation of this overwhelming flood of media, its fractured and degraded sounds and images reflecting how little we as an audience are able to retain from this daily barrage.
Infinite Glitch is an automated system that generates an ever-changing audio/video stream from the constantly increasing mass of media files freely available on the web. Source audio and video files are ripped from a variety of popular media hosting sites, torn apart, and recombined using collage and glitch techniques to create an organic, chaotic flood of sensory input.
Benjamin Baker-Smith is currently employed as a video editor, streaming media expert, and web developer at Backstar Creative Media in Chicago, IL. He maintains a website and active blog at bitsynthesis.com, and is a contributing writer for vagueterrain.net and the Backstar company blog  (backstar.com/blog). He has done freelance web design for Statewide Software (statewidesoftware.com) and lectured on basic website creation to students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is the creator and maintainer of Upflickr (Rubygems.org/gems/upflickr/), a Ruby gem that makes it easier to upload and organize images on flickr using the Ruby programming language.
