pinhole camera

Quote du jour - Guy Bleus

The epistemological question of present communication is (still) possible, is socially and historically irrele-vant. The vulture of power relations circles especially around the correlation between the quality and the quantity of communication. Not the values, but the numbers rule the planet. The merchandizing of informa-tion is a fact. from A WAR BETWEEN THE POSTMAN AND HIS ELECTRONIC SHADOW

I'm getting a lot done on the early adopters part of my chapter - working on Guy Bleus, CrackerJack Kid, and Mark Bloch. All good writers -- much material - way too much -- very fun stuff, the early idealism of mail artists discovering the Internet.
