Algorithms and Control.


Algorithms and Control: Behaviour of computational programs in arts, media theory & political activism.

By Robert Jackson.

Algorithms have become a hot topic of political lament in the last few years. Such "step - by - step" procedures, the common logic which underlies the behaviour of computational programs are now a key area of research both in the arts, media theory and political activism. Robert Jackson argues that more can be done to prise apart how contradictory algorithms are, and thus the contradictory levels of control.

Study of The Dancing Rhinoceri of Bangladesh

Article by Yen Ooi

Yen reviews Dancing Rhinoceri of Bangladesh, an interactive poem by net artist Millie Niss, looking at the interface and reader experience, but also at the text itself, and the complexities of its reading, and at the source of its creation through technology. The Dancing Rhinoceri of Bangladesh, she says, is more than just a poem. As with all electronic literature, it requires more than just literacy to access, understand and appreciate. It is a piece of art, which carries in itself, cultural, historical, political and technological implications and meanings.

Millie Niss was known, first and foremost as a net artist. Her works tend to have interactive characteristics in them, with thought-provoking writing and the Dancing Rhinoceri of Bangladesh is exactly that, an interactive poem with a strong message.
