Creative Exhibitionism 1997

"The medium that has emerged on the Web, and that continues to dominate commercial esthetics in general and through it a large part of ourselves, is one that fosters, and depends on, utter transience of attention. Extending television's effects through its much-vaunted interactivity, the Web has served to render writing into "content"--something to squeeze between flashy interaction and absorb any drops of attention that might spill. (It is no coincidence that this is the same, already proverbial, position that humans have come to occupy vis-a-vis machines.)." Featuring new work by Mark Amerika, Bobby Rabyd, Jacques Servin and Eugene Thacker.
