SOUND RESOLUTION
by Jim Andrews
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=597
Now what I’m going to tell you you already know back in some primitive part of your brain. Digital sound doesn’t sound as good as many analog recordings. Here’s why...

DIGITAL FICTION IPAD PROJECT: THE GOOD AND BAD STUFF
by Andy Campbell
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=579
I thought it might be interesting to reflect on how we’re finding the iPad as a development platform regarding our latest digital fiction project ‘Changed‘, bearing in mind that we’re not using the Apple SDK or exporting an App from Flash CS5 to produce this piece...

NHL BRAIN TRINKET
by Jim Andrews
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=565
What I’m going to tell you—I warn you—is of no consequence whatever. And it won’t even be of interest to you unless you’re an NHL hockey fan. And, worse, it’s going to test your algebra skills. The only thing I can say in favour of saying it at all is that you just won’t ever read anything else about hockey like what I’m going to tell you right now. It just doesn’t happen. This is the unicorn of hockey writing. Right here, right now...

SHOES RED AS WOUNDS
by Christine Wilks
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=556
For my performance of Underbelly in Edinburgh, UK, on Halloween at Inspace no one can hear you scream I intend to wear shoes as red as wounds. Why? Because Underbelly, my work of playable media fiction, is an exploration of women’s bodies in relation to the land - past and present, inside and outside, above and below ground - and shoes, especially red ones, are loaded with associations...
NOTE: Underbelly won the Poole Prize for New Media after Christine posted this.

Slidvid 3.0


Here are some photos I took when I was recently in your head looking at your language. You were by the sink humming, doing the dishes. These are song shapes. No audio. http://vispo.com/nio/pens/slideshow

NEWS FROM THE SAHRAWI REFUGES CAMPS IN SOUTHERN ALGERIA
Eugenio Tisselli
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=523
Since 2003, Catalan artist Antoni Abad and I have been working on a series
of projects dealing with overlooked communities around the world expressing
and sharing their views and opinions the Web...

CANADIAN PSYCHO
Jim Andrews
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=471
During the third week of October, 2010, the Canadian media covered the case
of Russell Williams like no other news story. Williams, prior to his
February 7, 2010 confession of murders, rapes, and scores of panty
burglaries, was a colonel and decorated pilot in command of the Canadian
military air base in Trenton, Ontario, the country's largest and busiest
military airbase...

GREGORY CHATONSKY'S GENERATIVE NARRATIVES
Jim Andrews
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=441
Gregory Chatonsky is a French/Canadian artist who has created a significant
body of net art. Here are a couple of pieces of his I found that still work
and are compelling...

TEXT GENERATORS
Jim Andrews
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=426
Edde Addad put together an interesting post concerning poetical text
generators on netpoetic.com. The post describes and links to quite a few
online resources...

AMY WINEHOUSE LINKS
Jim Andrews
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=371
I've been listening to Amy Winehouse's blue-eyed soul music (though hers are
brown) recently, watching interviews and reading articles about her. I
thought I'd post the best of those links...

NIGHTINGALE'S PLAYGROUND
Andy Campbell
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=373
Created by Dreaming Methods authors Andy Campbell and Judi Alston,
Nightingale's Playground is an ambitious work of digital fiction divided
into four interlinked parts: an atmospheric browser based experience; an
interactive virtual book with pages you can turn with the mouse; a short
eBook download; and an immersive 3D game-like application that takes the
written word into strange new dimensions...

INSTANT POETRY PATENTS
David Jhave Johnston
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=342
About a year ago, John Cayley made a post on NetPoetic entitled "An Edge of
Chaos". In it he delimits a constraint-based networked-writing process:
"Write into the Google search field with text delimited by quote marks until
the sequence of words is not found. Record this sequence.." A couple of
weeks ago, I woke up with the idea of making a poem composed entirely of
lines that returned no search results. "Wow", I thought to myself, "what a
great idea". I had forgotten it was John's idea...

SIGN AFTER THE X
Jim Andrews
http://netartery.vispo.com/?p=329
David Clarke has created a new work of net art called Sign After the X in
collaboration with Marina Roy and Graham Meisner. Sign After the X is
structurally similar to some of Clark's earlier works such as A is for Apple
and 88 Constellations for Wittgenstein. The form of these works is one that
Clark has been developing for some time now...
