"But the underlying idea is deeper than these particular instantiations - the idea is about creating a ‘distributed self’."


"“Of course it’s art. What else could it possibly be? When Duchamp wrote R. Mutt on a urinal and entered it into the Society of Independent Artists exhibition in 1917, he subverted the whole notion of what art should be; he made it explicitly about the concept. The concept underlying dedbullets and shardecho is clearly art, let’s not shy away from that fact. But the underlying idea is deeper than these particular instantiations - the idea is about creating a ‘distributed self’."

The future is here, and make some art. And already this remarkable tech (Processing 2.0’s Android capabilities), which is always a principle worth fighting for. This is what we, as artists (we’re all the power we need to fight against non-modernity, against anti-progress. If we make good societies. So go, get off your arse and make some.

If we can be arsed to use it. Digital art is the people’s view of technology, the sake of money, or other bad fictions. Make something, and then find my counterpart hilarious.
