I'm a young one and I've been following Rhizome since 2008. I'm a pretty rare commenter. I think its a good overview of "new media art" for students and newbies ...

cool project though, cause even if it doesn't work out you put a value on emotional labor/life experience, though perhaps $25 or $1000 are both arbitrary. the love you ...

I don't game and watching this gave me chills. I've always wished videogames could make me happy :/

agreed, and commented. From what I know Karen's visiting from the US and like I, made lots of generalizations about differences between North American+European emerging artists. I feel this ...
