BIO
Curt Cloninger is an artist, writer, and Assistant Professor of New Media at the University of North Carolina Asheville (US). His art undermines language as a system of meaning in order to reveal it as an embodied force in the world. By layering, restructuring, hashing, eroding, exhausting, and (dis)splaying language, he causes language to perform itself until its "meaning" has less to do with what it denotes and more to do with how it behaves. His work has been featured in the New York Times and at festivals and galleries from Korea to Brazil. Exhibition venues include Digital Art Museum [DAM] Berlin, L'Instituto de México à Paris, Living Arts of Tulsa, and The Art Gallery of Knoxville.

Cloninger has written on a wide range of topics, including new media and internet art, installation and performance art, experimental graphic design, popular music, network culture, and continental philosophy. His articles have appeared in Intelligent Agent, Mute, Paste, Tekka, Rhizome Digest, A List Apart, and on ABC World News. He is also the author of seven books, most recently "Fresher Styles for Web Designers" (New Riders). He maintains lab404.com, playdamage.org , and deepyoung.org in hopes of facilitating a more lively remote dialogue with the Sundry Contagions of Wonder.

Re: chinese musak always sets me free


fair enough, Mike.

i've never doubted y'all's levity. i'm just musing on the
discrepancy between your actual net worth and your perceived net
worth.

or is it all good in the hood? maybe it's all good.

dem bones


Because they have the function of collecting and preserving the
artworks, the art museums today often looks like historical
collections of media technologies of the previous decades. Thus one
may mistake a contemporary art museum for a museum of obsolete
technology. Today, while outside one finds LCD and PDA, data
projectors and DV cameras, inside a museum we may expect to find
slide projectors, 16 mm film equipment, 3/4-inch video decks."

"Before a local gallery will even consider displaying my net art
work, i first have to screen-capture some stills of my animated
website, print these digital stills out on a color printer, take
photographs of the color prints, develop the photographs as slides,
and send the slides to the gallery via snail mail."

Re: dem bones


>I believe you are thinking of Huey Lewis.

That's true, but then i'm always thinking of Huey Lewis. There is a
perpetual sub-routine in my brain constantly trying to discover any
salient differences between the musics of Huey Lewis and Hall & Oats.
So far, no luck.
