Data Diaries Logo Data Diaries
by Cory Arcangel
with funds from the Jerome Foundation

Data Diaries is 11 hours of video footage which was generated by tricking Quicktime into thinking the RAM of a home computer is video. This was done once for each day in January 2003. Watch as Cory's emails, letters, webpages, DSL data, songs, and anything else he worked on that day float by as a totally-psyched attention deficit disorder 15 frames per second video experience.

Au bord du fleuve/On the Riverside Logo Au bord du fleuve/On the Riverside
by Joseph Lefèvre and Martine Koutnouyan
with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts

Au bord du fleuve/On the Riverside is a poetic portrayal of the St. Lawrence River. The site replicates the river's ambient calmness and serenity. Users embark on a journey that begins with an interface of aquatic images and continues with the exploration and discovery of animated 'mosaics': panoramic views, sailors' songs and seagulls' cries; and animated shorts. [Needs Flash Player 6]
Inter-face Logo Inter-face
by David Jhave Johnston
with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts

Inter-face is a video-mixer, sound-shredder and poetic notebook. Composited words explode from the mouth, or the eyes, or the skin, and leap and land or collide against other bodies, other objects. Inter-face utilizes composited video output from ActiveText and some sound files generated by IXI software within a Flash GUI. [Needs Flash Player 6]

Horvath's works are non-interactive, net.based videos engaging us in the possibility of technological intimacy.

co~dec Logo co~dec
by M. Takeo Magruder

With co~dec, M. Takeo Magruder continues his quest to create art/media hybrids for the net. It is a "translation" of a one hour CNN news broadcast that has been dissected, compressed—in time, space, and color—then decompressed to its original length. In ambiguous silence co~dec slows the net to a crawl (and probably your computer as well, since the piece is processor intensive). [Needs Flash Player 6+]

+ requiem + Logo + requiem +
by Michael Takeo Magruder

+ requiem + reflects upon the collective memory of tragic moments in recent history. The interface map through which the artwork is accessed dynamically re-configures itself each time the spectator views the page. Seven events are randomly parsed from the archive and embedded into the interface, thus creating a series of gateways to the past.
Lewis LaCook Logo Lewis LaCook

LaCook uses the machine's native ability to generate pseudo-random numbers, and to make decisions based on those numbers. Either the text, music or graphic elements are generated this way. While some elements in his works do remain stable, others always vary. A user's collaboration may take the form of simply opening the piece or by having a direct hand in the work's manifestation.
Left To My Own Devices Logo Left To My Own Devices
Geoffrey Thomas

Left To My Own Devices uses the codes of digital games to explore a narrative of loss and awkward renewal. The gameís main character navigates a space of playful interaction and fragmented animation. Game segments take inspiration from the shifting emotional states associated with loss. The characterís backstory is gradually revealed through game play. [Needs Flash Player 7]

Selections from "Muscle and Blood Piano" Logo Selections from "Muscle and Blood Piano"
by Barbara Lattanzi

Sampling the classic horror movie, "Nosferatu" by F.W. Murnau (1922), the selected shockwave applets test one model of interactivity in which the interpretive process of cinematic editing is meant to coincide with the time of viewing. At a central moment of "Nosferatu," a threshold is crossed, into the 'land of phantoms'. That threshold of horror mirrors the idea of the computer interface itself. Thus, the interactive setting for "Nosferatu" invokes a problematic, unsettling metaphor for the interface - both cybernetic and social. [Needs Shockwave + Quicktime plugins]
Agricola de Cologne Logo Agricola de Cologne

Agricola stands for humanity, and the combination of art and humanism; the city of Cologne stands for art and culture. Therefore, the brand "Agricola de Cologne" stands for awareness of history, humanity, and new ways of approaching art. Agricola's "brand" penetrates his art: currently his works are net-based and incorporate strong multimedia, collaborative and networking components. The result is a universe of multifaceted sites and art projects incorporated in the "NewMediaArtprojectNetwork" created by the artist. [Needs Explorer or Netscape 6+, Flash Player plugin]
Desktop Subversibles Logo Desktop Subversibles
by Jonah Brucker-Cohen

As computers and the desktop metaphor reach virtual ubiquity in our daily lives, they also become objects we take for granted in daily use. Desktop Subversibles capitalizes on the ubiquity of our interactions with computer desktops to convey awareness of activity and a sense of shared network space among the members of an online and physical community.

by Annette Weintraub

Hall for dreamers or impersonal machine? Hospital architecture is an amalgam of elements drawn from religion, the military and the factory. Life Support explores this symbolic coding of space and its underlying mythologies. Four spatial hybrids mixing 2D and 3D representation act as narrative containers for issues of hierarchy, mechanization, privacy and identity. [Needs Flash Player 6]
