BIO
born in 1962 in Lier, Belgium.
studied filology at Louvain, Belgium.

worked a lot in bars and restaurants before i became obsessivly addicted to producing stuff on computers.

i once won a design contest of cgi-magazine and they let me go to New York for four days, that was nice.

i think in terms of writing mostly (or programming, but those are very similar processes for me)

painting is a very different process and i'm very bad at it but i do it anyway because i like the differences it produces and i like the freshness of amateurism, i guess.

what i produce new media-wise is also very much influenced by my daily practice of webdesign and programming with its concerns of usability and the pragmatic approach it implies.

Ghost Town: novella via 160-character sms/text messaging

"Virgin Mobile USA has announced a short story named Ghost Town that will be
delivered exclusively through text messages. Two messages will be sent per
day over a five week period. The first messages will be sent out on August
14th. The promotion is aimed at raising awareness of teen homelessness.
Readers will also have the opportunity to determine how the story ends,
choosing between two options via text message poll. The novella focuses on
the experiences of a 17-year-old boy who, with the support of his counselor
and girlfriend, is able to rise up and overcome many of the hardships he
faces being homeless.

Better scans and Topologocal icons for the Audacia-poem added to the
badbad.jsp file at http://www.vilt.net/nkdee/badbad.jsp and some new words
by Kathedral-Mother dear 9she's still nagging about the soap thing). I find
them rather an interesting development.

The icons are also nice to make new poems with. You can't make 'm too fast
though, because the meanings of the words tend to drop in and ruin things
after making some 5 or six words. The trick is to hold on to the series
established by the poem. Audacia's poems are excellent for this type of
thing.

here's the K-M text, starting off with an T-icon triad:

awakes1 <http://www.vilt.net/nkdee/graphics/words/awake.jpg> tibitre
<http://www.vilt.net/nkdee/graphics/words/bitter.jpg> seed
<http://www.vilt.net/nkdee/graphics/words/seed.jpg>

"awake bitter seed
for this we have learned:

all those dispositions
all those words

ought to be revealed
by those who are weighted
in the balance

& not by those
who have not entered therein,

but by those who have
entered therein

& departed therefrom.

For he who entereth therein
& goeth not out therefrom,

better were it for that man
that he had never been born.

So shut up, lest
you awake

the seed within you,

[untsoweiter]

now where's the goddamn soap gone to? "

For me, the whole file's in memory of a friend who died recently of cancer
after being clinically depressed for several years.

Confirmation


This can't be undone. Do you really want to

o Anna if it were thus that i could niggle thee like a wriggling
larva from the Motherboard if it were thus
that i could fish thee like a tadpole swimming amongst tadpoles
from the Channels if it were thus
that i could dissect thee in dishes, arrange
thy parts in other dishes if it were thus
that i could know thee o Anna as i know the Other
and besides Him Many Others:

thou wouldst truly be the One, the Cause, the Light and the Future.

Alas,
since thou depriveth me of thy countenance
since thou abscondeth the Shrouds that are held before thee
since thou sheds the choking Love from thy body like spiders
since thou turns thy back to the Eye of Inspection that stands
taught and Purple with Lust
since thou refuseth the sweeping Nets of Noise Recording the least of thy
Sonifications

thereby and through the Powers bestoweth upon me
it will be as i hereby inscribe and send thee thus word off, initiating the
selfsame code throught its ruthless invocation

thus that i turn thee belly-down and look upon thy back
thus that i lift thy cloth and burry it under thy chin in manyfold
thus that my left hand will force thy thighs open, my right will hold thy
head down
thus that i may have a firm grip on the plug and strenghthen it
thus that i may rip the Gate entirely, remove

'Anna' from the network? (Y/N?)
