vivre la difference

I have extensively studied a pre-Internet global network, the Mail Art Network, in which the network is considered the artwork: the global pulsating sculpture of mail art. The interdependence and generosity of mail art is the medium.

In this SXSW panel, called The Supercollider: A hero of the Social Network, the individual is considered the star or the hero of overlapping networks and is considered super for being multi-networked, and is social networking tool savvy to the point of tool fatigue. The bright, articulate quite cute geeky panelists flashed witty words that oozed onto my pad. A designer looking over my shoulder watched my sloppy process of deriving haikuish elements from the discussion and splashing paint around.
