[-empyre-] Re: Welcome

hello all
thanks christina for the warm welcome!
criticalartware is very excited about this month on empyre + connecting our
discursive ([soft_skinned/permeable/overlapping]) spaces.

yes, that is a sincere hope of ours, that we can slip [in/out/over] the
topologies of enthusiastic engagements. criticalartware, as an
[application/platform], seeks to function as mini intertwined categories, i.e.
historical research, artware development, groupware + as an open exchange of
shared resources (to name just a few we are often thinking about).

yes, this idea is very important to us + allows us to have conversations about
systems aesthetics, instruction sets, code based theorypraxis, fluidity, etc in
relation to [contemporary/subjective] histories of these arts. specifically we
are invested in the feedback loops generated by artware ++ Video Art ++ related
[Klein forms/Möbius strips].

yes + we excitedly look fwd to these conversations + the dynamic memory
allocations of these [software-as-art/art-as-software] programs.

our approach involves a commitment to hybridities + creative uncertainties, esp
in regards to the construction of binaries between such activities as theory +

thank you to all of the empyre moderators + to the empyre community for
welcoming us. 
looking fwd...
