National Velvet
by David Crawford
with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts

In the course of its evolution, the U.S. flag displays visual associations to the British flag alongside to its own unique elements. The evolution of this visual language echoes the political and cultural revolution in that characteristics of the British Empire were borrowed or transformed to suit the needs of the American Revolutionaries.

Bionet : : Recombinant
by Eugene Thacker
with funds from the Jerome Foundation

This project is an attempt to assemble a body of discourses surrounding contemporary molecular genetics and biotechnology at the end of the millennium.

Each day new data emerges tracing the shifting boundaries between the 'organic' and 'non-organic'. Genetic Response System 3.0 reflects these shifts.

channelUntitled tunes into the spectres that haunt technology and provides a channel to air their messages. Who are these beings that dwell here? Spirits of the dead?
