Synopsis: The 12hr-ISBN-JPEG Project began December 30, 1994.
A `round-the-clock posting of sequenced hypermodern imagery by Brad
Brace. The hypermodern minimizes the familiar, the known, the
recognizable; it suspends identity, relations and history.

The 12-hour ISBN JPEG Project
-----------------------------
began December 30, 1994

Pointless Hypermodern Imagery... posted/mailed every 12 hours... a
stellar, trajective alignment past the 00`s! A continuum of minimalist
masks in the face of catastrophe; conjuring up transformative
metaphors for the everyday... A poetic reversibility of events...

A post-rhetorical, continuous, apparently random sequence of
imagery... genuine gritty, greyscale... corruptable, compact,
collectable and compelling convergence. The voluptuousness of the grey
imminence: the art of making the other disappear. Continual visual
impact; an optical drumming, sculpted in duration, on the endless
present of the Net.

An extension of the printed ISBN-Book (0-9690745) series... critically
unassimilable... imagery is gradually acquired, selected and
re-sequenced over time... ineluctable, vertiginous connections. The
12hr dialtone...

KEYWORDS: Disconnected, disjunctive, distended, de-centered,
de-composed, ambiguous, augmented, ambilavent, homogeneous,
reckless... Multi-faceted, oblique, obsessive, obscure, obdurate...
Promulgated, personal, permeable, prolonged, polymorphous,
provocative, poetic, plural, perverse, potent, prophetic,
pathological... Evolving, eccentric, eclectic, egregious, exciting,
entertaining, entropic, erotic, entrancing, enduring...

Every 12 hours, another!... view them, re-post `em, save `em, trade
`em, print `em, even publish them...

Here`s how:

~ Set www-links to - http://bbrace.laughingsquid.net/12hr.html.
Look for the 12-hr-icon. Heavy traffic may require you to specify
files more than once! Anarchie, Fetch, CuteFTP, TurboGopher...

~ E-mail - If you only have access to email, then you can use FTPmail
to do essentially the same thing. Send a message with a body of 'help'
to the server address nearest you:

~ Mirror-sites requested! Archives too!
The latest new jpeg will always be named, 12hr.jpeg
Average size of images is only 45K.
*
Perl program to mirror ftp-sites/sub-directories:
src.doc.ic.ac.uk:/packages/mirror

~ Postings to usenet groups:
alt.12hr
alt.binaries.pictures.12hr
alt.binaries.pictures.misc
alt.binaries.pictures.fine-art.misc

* * Ask your system's news-administrator to carry these groups! (There
are also usenet image browsers: TIFNY, PluckIt, Picture Agent,
PictureView, Extractor97, NewsRover, Binary News Assistant, Newsfeeds)

~ This interminable, relentless sequence of imagery began in earnest
on December 30, 1994. The basic structure of the project has been over
twenty-four years in the making. While the specific sequence of
photographs has been presently orchestrated for more than 12 years`
worth of 12-hour postings, I will undoubtedly be tempted to tweak the
ongoing publication with additional new interjected imagery. Each
12-hour posting is like the turning of a page; providing ample time
for reflection, interruption, and assimilation.

~ The sites listed above also contain information on other
transcultural projects and sources.

~ A very low-volume, moderated mailing list for announcements and
occasional commentary related to this project has been established at
topica.com /subscribe 12hr-isbn-jpeg

This project has not received government art-subsidies. Some
opportunities still exist for financially assisting the publication of
editions of large (36x48") prints; perhaps (Iris giclees) inkjet
quadtones bound as an oversize book. Other supporters receive rare
copies of the first three web-offset printed ISBN-Books. A limited
number of paid email subscriptions are now available!

I am primarily interested in the aesthetic possibilities of the medium, and
these are those which promote mental reflection (rather than reflective
recollection.)

New virus can infect pictures (fwd)


http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0,1282,53196,00.html

WASHINGTON -- A new virus threatens to strike one of the Internet's most common
and useful activities: sharing family photos.

The malicious program is the first ever to infect picture files, though it is
not currently attacking computers. Called "Perrun," it worries researchers
because it is the first to be able to cross from infecting a program to
infecting data files, long considered safe from such threats.
