Nobody here

A blog reconfigured as an interactive experience, Nobody Here. The viewer is invited to play, though the goofy fun of the interactive elements is balanced by the emotional weight of the writing. Visitors can also choose an insect icon to represent themselves, then leave comments on individual pages. If you encounter Herman the hermit crab, try shaking him out of his shell.

SOD

Launch SOD

JoDi's SOD is a modification of the game Wolfenstein. You can actually attempt to play the game, but everything is scrampled. SOD is a modification or "hack" of id Software’s action game Wolfenstein 3D. The goal is to escape from a Nazi dungeon.

The game is a space that is loosely architectural and extremely disorienting. It is easy to get lost, and it can be difficult to distinguish the walls from the targets one is supposed to shoot. JODI complements the game-play difficulties with a cryptic interface (setting game preferences is no easy task!) and tongue-in-cheek game instructions along the lines of "If you are tough, press N. If not, press Y daintily."

Remixthebook

remixthebook.com

The remixthebook.com website is the online hub for the digital remixes of many of the theories generated in the print book and features the work of artists, creative writers and scholars for whom the practice and theory of remix art is central to their research interests.

remixthebook author Mark Amerika, along with co-curator and artist Rick Silva, has invited over 25 contributing international artists, poets, and critical theorists, all of them interdisciplinary in their own practice-based research, to sample from remixthebook and manipulate the selected source material through their own artistic and theoretical filters.

/death/null

Launch project

„It's a place to bury a hatchet.
Immortalise the ephemeral.
Make a meme memorial.
Mark a mortal thought.
An Obytuary.“

/death/null is a graveyard for digital files. each file you upload will be directly streamed to /dev/null on this system, the so called null device which is a kind of nirvana or black hole in a computer system. in the process, the system selects bytes from your file and calculates a digital fingerprint, creating an online gravestone. afterwards, you may wish to delete any copies remaining on your system. you can always return to visit the grave of your file on the graveyard.
but ...?

MAINTENANCE WEB

ponic growth sediment pods; etheric cycling; astral healing routines... Launch project

Jennifer and Kevin McCoy are collaborators who reside in New York City. In 1997, at the invitation of The Thing, New York, they produced a large-scale net art site entitled MAINTENANCE WEB , made in collaboration with Torsten Burns.
