Accelerated Logic / Ryan Gandler


„Printed, laser die-cut orange acrylic stencil containing annotations made by the artist, to page 11 of John Berger’s Ways of Seeing. The annotations select, highlight, as well as censor the still in-print publication. Mirroring the mass production of the available book, the work considers the possible multiplication of a personal perspective through the function of the stencil.“

Idyll

„Idyll is a tool that makes it easier to author interactive narratives for the web. The goal of the project is to provide a friendly markup language — and an associated toolchain — that can be used to create dynamic, text-driven web pages.“

The Readers Project

„The Readers Project is a collection of distributed, performative, quasi-autonomous poetic ‚readers‘ — active, procedural entities with distinct reading behaviors and strategies. […] Each reader follows traces of linguistic and poetic structure — symbolic idealities — that define their specific focus of attention. Since the their behaviors are derived from a necessarily partial, aesthetically implicated analysis of human reading, they explore and reveal certain contours and outlines of linguistic materiality’s ‚other dimensions‘, in work that we propose to be significant, affective, and literary.“
