BIO
Rob Myers is an artist and hacker based in the UK.

I have been creating images of the contemporary social and cultural environment through programming, design software and visual remixing since the early 1990s. My work is influenced by popular culture and high art in equal measures. My interest in remixing and sampling has led to my involvement in the Free Culture movement. I have been involved in the public consultation regarding the Creative Commons 2.0 and CC-UK licenses. All my visual art is available under a Creative Commons license.

My interest in programming has led to my involvement with the Free Software movement. I developed the Macintosh version of the Gwydion Dylan programming language compiler. All my software is available under the GNU GPL.

DISCUSSION

Working on Discuss


Joan Colins", like Sting, is both tedium and police.

This is the gentrification of discuss.

DISCUSSION

"Schematic: New Media Art From Canada" at [ space ] London


Now I really I wish I could get to see that show.

I don't think the topics are meant to be Canadian, I think it's the responses. And they are at least defensibly Canadian. ;-)

DISCUSSION

We can BE THE MESSAGE


Under materialism it would make sense that language would be immanent to the physical world.

I'm a big fan of Weiner. I know some people are critical of his increasing theatricality, and there are institutional and economic relations to consider there, but I agree that it has a critical function. It shows the physicality and spatiality of written language, the dirt and significant noise of it. It also shows how written language relates to images in ways other than the simple domination of images by the purity of text that Theory presupposes.

I wish Rhizome had a mailing list for that kind of in-depth discussion...
