A `round-the-clock posting of sequenced hypermodern imagery from Brad
Brace. The hypermodern minimizes the familiar, the known, the
recognizable; it suspends identity, relations and history. This
discourse, far from determining the locus in which it speaks, is
avoiding the ground on which it could find support. It is trying to
operate a decentering that leaves no privilege to any center.

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

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

~ 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.

This project has not received government art-subsidies. Some
opportunities still exist for financially assisting the publication
of editions of large (33x46") prints; perhaps (Iris giclees) inkjet
duotones or extended-black quadtones. Other supporters receive rare
copies of the first three web-offset printed ISBN-Books.
Contributions and requests for 12hr-email-subscriptions, can also be
made at http://bbrace.laughingsquid.net/buy-into.html, or by mailed
cheque/check: $5/mo $50/yr. Institutions must pay for any images
retained longer than 12 hours.
