i am reminded of Jeffrey Shaws work "ledgible city", which i guess most
people are familair with.. where one uses a bicycle in a gallery space to
naviagte around a projection of various real city blocks constructed of
super clunky 3d text is quiet old now but had that luvly feel of
multiple readings and navigations thru texts which were simulatneously
buildings,  prisions, poetry  etc.

i also remember from 'osmose' that computer code wast the bottom level of
the 7? (i forget) worlds and philosophy/poetry  at the top level of the
work.. there was a heirarchy or a buliding upon involved, which i guess was
intentional ..but for me separated the difference out as well..
 i think i actually like "ephemere" more.. as it s less immediately
"readable "..

btw do any canadians know why Derrick de Kerckhove in his book Connected
Intelligence refers to Char Davies as Charles Davies (p28). is there an
intriguing story about this?
