RE: [-empyre-] blogging to the Dump

This is a relevant question about how a practice online affect our spatial
practice. The Dump ( is about the project left in an open
Dump because either I'm not sure to want to realize them, I don't feel this
project belong to my practice, this project has been refused, it was
conceived a long time ago and has never been actualised because of
economical, ideological or technical matters.
For me the Dump is good way to escape the authorised perimeter of practice.
When people want me to be a media artist, as they wanted me to be a computer
artist, a film director, a 3d animation director, a professor, a
businessman, an architect... When you want to escape from tags, stickers and
other authorised categories you have to find a space of freedom where you
can pretend or accept to be what you could do, that always exceeds what you
are supposed to do. 
Some projects of the Dump, performing arts, concept art (I define the terms
there) sculpture, relays on the question of space. As samples of that kind
of project: 
Art Total (in French)
Inside Out
SASed Art, Secure Automatic Selection (in French)
In this series of project, most of them will never exist, that I'm dropping
as often I find time they are project that are eventually picked up by
passers by and will be done:
COBA Coming out Bag Art (click on the flag for the English)
and on the picture for the video.
Stolen Life (in French)
L'essence de l'Art Contemporain (Contemporary Art Spirit)
I decided to post only projects, whatever the topic I would like to dive in.
This is supposed to be my job.

Thanks so much for your account of your Chernobyl Project, Alice.  In 
addition to your ellision of the visible and the invsibile as 
components of spatial critical practice, I'm also interested in your 
extension of your video project into your blog.  Since Maurice also 
maintains a blog, I'm wondering whether you both might have something 
to say about this particular online extension of your practice.
