Re: Men & Bombs


I especially like the music -- the opening reminds me of the opening of
"De Staat" by a Dutch composer called Louis Andriessen. Your soundscape
gets a wee bit anecdotal soon after (but you might have meant it that
way, given the subject matter).

Re: Re: data diaries (response to all)


I think the work might do well out of the context of net.art. It
might do especially well as a museum piece -- projected onto the
walls of a darkened room. There it might interact with other examples
of the minimalist tradition.
