Re: [-empyre-] potential of code..

hi Melinda &...

if I were a prophet, I would use Internet to propagate the 'good word'! (but
us, artists, poets... are we prophets and are our words and ideas and
questions and energies good to propagate and sow the world?)
on the other hand it seems urgent to that artists (especially since
Internet) become aware of their responsibility
for the Western artist of the 21e century, the computer is at the same time
studio, laboratory and kitchen ; the softwares are its tools; images,
sounds, words, interactivity, network, codes, are the ingredients with which
it will juggle, to compose and build art-works
these works convey and give to ' see' ideas and concepts which differently
would be only ' confidentiels', i.e. accessible to a minority of specialists

art should be opening (and as such arranging several 'doors of perception ')
and are supposed to abolish all the compartmentalizations

in my humble opinion
