The Secret Lives of Numbers Logo The Secret Lives of Numbers
by Golan Levin et. al.
with funds from The Greenwall Foundation
and the National Endowment for the Arts


The authors conducted an exhaustive empirical study in order to determine the relative popularity of every integer between 0 and one million. The resulting information exhibits an extraordinary variety of patterns which reflect our culture, our minds, and our bodies. We surmise that our dataset is a numeric snaphot of the collective consciousness; herein we return our analyses to the public in the form of an interactive visualization, whose aim is to provoke awareness of one's own numeric manifestations.

by Prema Murthy

"The boss tells me not to bring our "women's problems" with us to work if we want to be treated equal. I am only one person — and I bring my whole self to work with me. So what does he mean, don't bring my "women's problems" here?" — a circuit assembly worker. [Needs Quicktime plugin]

Grey Area Logo Grey Area
by Friederike Paetzold
with funds from The Greenwall Foundation
and the National Endowment for the Arts


We are defined by what we desire, and how we get what we want and how happy we are with what we have. Grey Area is a self-portrait based on the artist's levels of wanting, getting and having...recorded over a sample period, with the collected data determining the outcome of the final image. Does rasterizing the psyche make the individual appear more discrete, or more generic?

"An important historic figure's writings and personal effects are confiscated by the State. Some seventy years later, they are unearthed in the National Archives. Now, through rapid advances in digital delivery and display technologies, the discarded objects and lost memories of the 20th century are transmitted into the 21st."

American Internet Logo American Internet
by Eryk Salvaggio
with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts

It can be said that there is no greater symbol for American globalization than the logo plastered onto Coca Cola cans. Coca Cola is so linked to America that its factories share a distinction with American embassies and battleships as terrorist targets: Coca Cola plants have been bombed in Nepal and New Delhi.

with funds from The Jerome Foundation

Knit++ is a collective_process_project based on the concept of interlocking loops that form non-hierarchical distribution patterns of people and places. The generic ideas of sewing_knitting_ weaving become the artists' model for 'surveying territory' in opposition to colonization of domestic/public sphere.

kanarinka Logo kanarinka

kanarinka is intimately concerned with collage, juxtaposition, and sampling; and the WAYS we can sample, or RULES we can make up about sampling raw data that will yield a dynamic and aesthetically coherent work of art. She's interested in code one can write and the interactive dynamics one can conceive to build up layer upon layer of "art modules" (individual artworks in themselves) that can yield a larger, more complex, emergent work of art...

Jessica Loseby Logo Jessica Loseby

Loseby’s work has always been marked by the presence of the domestic and the inconsequential. Unashamedly lo-tech, her work builds comparisons of the network in its frustrations, attention to triviality and repetition as absurdly compatible to the female domestic routine.

by Jim Andrews

Arteroids is an Internet 'movie' in Macromedia Director Shockwave, a computer game of 216 levels, and a re-write of the possibilities of digital poetry. In game mode, poetry does battle with the forces of dullness and its fate is up to you. You can drive your red id entity text around the screen using the keyboard, and execute texts via the id entity gun, or be blown up by green and blue marauding, vociferous texts.
