RE: [-empyre-] Re: empyre Digest, Vol 23, Issue 18 [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Hi blakkbyrd,

Perhaps it would be more constructive to shift the discussion towards
another area of de geuzen's work that has evolved from the t-shirts. So
far the issue of renaming has produced  a number of responses from
-empyreans-, and, by all accounts, this is a topic that elicits strong,
personal and ideological reactions.

If I could make some linkages to other work, I see that the anxiety
monitor does use words in a similar way, but with different outcomes.
Instead of reclaiming meaning this work relays the responses from
google, the most popular searching tool on the www. What I have found
with google in terms of image searches, is that is very limited. Correct
me if I am wrong, but from what I have seen the image search relies on
the image name, whereas altavista, for example, puts the image in
context with the web page - with a more meaningful result.

The anxiety monitor, if read in these terms, is then a potential play on
one-sightedness and naming conventions, forgetting about context. 

Reclaiming words as a process that is all about resituating context.

What do other -empyreans- think about this?

hi renee

your failure to address my question [ie relying on Ryan to answer for
you] gives me the confirmation I was seeking.  If you didnt have
anything to hide, you would respond and give us your results.
