DAWN OF A NEW ERA

the internet is the new place for poetry, and its very instability and unpredictability is what we are so excited about. Never the same version twice! Your computer may not be compatible! Things look different depending on which screen you view them from!
Which sounds wonderful, untill it is your own project, and it looks completely different to how it did at home!!!

"what for example - of file formats?
in the ship's hulk - deserting rats?
java pipo pipes up download - frases

This is almost definitely my starting point for the photoshop project. things that grow, expand, link etc - cyberspace!

but as with the flower, each part - though in some way representative of cyberspace/the internet - also represents something else, a dialogue or rather a chorus, and always the everpresent and ominous "us"!!

so, this is part 2...
