Strange lj Games

As the site explains:

"Grafik Dynamo is a net art work by Kate Armstrong & Michael Tippett that loads live images from blogs and news sources on the web into a live action comic strip. The work is currently using a feed from LiveJournal. The images are accompanied by narrative fragments that are dynamically loaded into speech and thought bubbles and randomly displayed. Animating the comic strip using dynamic web content opens up the genre in a new way: Together, the images and narrative serve to create a strange, dislocated notion of sense and expectation in the reader, as they are sometimes at odds with each other, sometimes perfectly in sync, and always moving and changing. The work takes an experimental approach to open ended narrative, positing a new hybrid between the flow of data animating the work and the formal perameter that comprises its structure. "

It's rather disturbing and very cool at the same time.

More on Potlatch

I have punted the search for available shared room space, and booked myself a double room in the Con hotel for Friday and Saturday of Potlatch. Anyone looking to share?

TEL : Stories Update

Hey guys. After literally months of delays, for which I humbly apologize, TEL : Stories is finally coming to fruition. I have sent out a number of both rejections and acceptances tonight, and have about 20 mss still being held, which I will finalize on over the next few days. Thank you for your patience, all.
