Rhizomistas:

Recently thinking about VRML. Did some info-hunting and turned up a number
of essays by Mark Pesce.

Found myself wondering why the obsession to reproduce the Earth as we know

Telecomedy

Entering Heath Bunting's site via the front door (http://www.cybercafe.org),
you're reminded that, in terms of form at least, an essential element of comedy
is timing. Very few of the very many pages here exceed 3K, and for that alone, Bunting
deserves some sort of grant from ...

At the recommendation of a friend, I just checked out "Implicate Beauty:
Computational Art by Brian Evans"
(http://www.vanderbilt.edu/VUCC/Misc/Art1/Beauty.html).

People often ask me what new media art is. I usually say that it's
contemporary art that uses new media technology. It's an easy ...

perhaps now three modes of the subject in the guise of friend, neighbour
and lover; and three parallel sociabilities of knowledge, economy and art:
knowledge called forth, economy compelled by desire and a yielding to
art's gravity;

stress to ...

There is a point, of course, to attaching names to the periods stacked
back to back in time like dusty books on a shelf, no matter how nitpicky we
get when it comes to defining the distinctions between them. We lived
differently in each and we thought differently ...

The human being, characterized by a remarkable ability to process information, has extended
his phenotype further than any other species. Complex tools and technologies are an integral
part of our evolutionary "fitness".

Human evolution is fundamentally intertwined with technological development; the two can not
be considered apart from one another ...

In Hungary and perhaps elsewhere it seems that one finds artists using
"new media" as a medium in two ways: the first group is interested and
involved with the medium as subject itself, exploring and pushing the
medium within its own boundaries; the second takes more from the "outside"
and ...

The sun shines, having no alternative, on the living and the dead – a misquote
between Joyce and Beckett, but in any case a sniff at the curious difficulty of
dying. Death isn't the end, and if you're medieval Christian or technopagan, and
if the afterlife looks like a painted ...

internet is an open space where the difference between "art" and "not
art" has become blurred as never before in XX century. that's why there
are so few "artists" in this space. there is possibility of
misinterpretation and loss of "artistic" identity here. this might be
welcome. there are no ...
