WE ARE IN CONTROL

sex violence and isolation in society are not an accident but also are not the product of any individual or group with supreme power. the power of an individual or subgroup to control population on a large scale no longer exists as it did during the world wars and the beginning of the cold war. […]

STATIC CONTEMPLATION

There’s something in the idea of static contemplation. Not evolving but rather resolving. Digesting ground already covered. Making sense of what has already happened. Constantly seeking out more and more information / stimulation without first making sense and order of the information already acquired is wasteful. Seeking out constantly more and yet with an ability […]

INTERVIEW WITH SEAN DOCKRAY / THE PUBLIC SCHOOL

The Public School is a school with no curriculum, located underneath TELIC Arts Exchange.It operates as follows: first, classes are proposed by the public (I want to learn this or I want to teach that); then, people have the opportunity to sign up for the classes (I also want to learn that); finally, when enough […]

QUESTION MEDIA ART

How does media art function in an era of electronic reproduction? Media Art used to be commonly known as New Media during the 1990’s. It is considered incorrect to use that term now because media is no longer new. Once New Media as a term started to become obsolete there was a need for a […]

DREAM MACHINES AND THE DREAMACHINE

In this article I will reexamine two important technological developments that prefigure the personal computer and the Web. I will also describe some of the mounting problems that come with ubiquitous connectivity to a seemingly infinite amount of information from the perspective of creative research in the visual arts.

PUBLIC OPINION

If people were not able to be informed on what other people were thinking how would they think differently?

BUILDING LINKAGE

I am looking for creative and illustrative ways to enable an audience to engage with, and embrace new modes of thinking that de-emphasize individuality while emphasizing groups and social ecology.

COOPERATIVE MYTH

The acts of consuming and generating a myth independently of each other in an open media framework are nearly impossible. A myth today is not under the control of any singular interest but rather reverberates through media networks, freely transforming in a pattern as uncontrollable as the weather.

SOME ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS ON SPACE TRAVEL

I wake up. It’s 8:30 am and I find myself staring out the window. I just wake up for no reason other than I feel like I want to write or make something, I need to do something. I’m not sure what. Feelings are too close to tell.

PASSING THROUGH

Introduction This is a story about two punks. Two best friends. Losers to society and social adventurers. Danny and Brian, friends since practically birth. On the streets just as long. They have nothing to lose and nothing to do so they travel together. They are in a constant state of migration. 20th century nomads, tourists […]

SUSO HEARSAY

I tried to write down everything that I could while the person in the other room was reading. Here is a transcript. […]

THERE IS A MOMENT WHERE NOTHING IS REAL

There is nothing beyond my own personal history. There is nothing beyond my own line of sight. There is nothing that I haven’t seen, touched, heard or smelt. I make the world as I move through it. I erase blackness as I see things. What I record will be the truth for all others who […]

NOTES FROM THE HISTORY OF REPRODOUCABILITY

Movement in cinema is an illusion it tricks us into its version of reality and from there on the rules are made to fit the agenda. It can touch us inside in places where we can’t usually go on our own and we trust it after that no matter what it tires to tell us […]

MORE NOTES FROM THE HISTORY OF REPRODOUCABILITY

New digital art that you haven’t seen before. The ability to distribute art made with code. A pretty bright concept. College art teachers don’t want to play second fiddle to the painter. Submit work that’s been made for the context of live cinema. And I’m the one who’s going to hook them up. You think […]
