Computer as Text as Computer
Computer as Text as Computer is a critique of the material things that surround us. Text and object are explored holistically. Write a statement, poem or polemic that scrolls across a liquid crystal display that is embedded within an artwork circuit board. Does it make sound? Explore the text and display characters as noise utterances; or disable 'noise' and read the text with the sound resonating in your own head. Computer as text is on-going research concerning the semiotics of machines and relationships with objects. Why write about machines when machines can talk for themselves? Re-order and mix your own text: ideas deconstruct.
