Hello all, thanks for including me, and let me begin by saying thanks
for not necessarily being an academic or discipline-based list. I've
had quite enough of that for one lifetime!
I am a visual artist with a head full of thoughts, a picture builder,
and I have a weakness for poetry and challenging prose. My interests
change, conjoin and split in different directions, but there are a few
that prevail: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, The Ecstasy of
Communication by Jean Baudrillard, Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood,
and The Accursed Share by Georges Bataille.
I enjoy ruminating over these texts and their relevance to media
arts--studio work and digital communication, in particular--and I am
interested in meeting anyone else who is of a similar bent. I don't
have any critical/analytical knowledge to share, just a passion for
these works and an appreciation for their enrichment of an already
quite substantial (maybe too substantial) inner life.
Again, thanks for the inclusion,
