Night Fever: Digitally Mastered
to fit the part, wait like all the rest, and drop $20 at the door..
Saturday night has always meant quality digital art. In fact, the
most compelling digital art continues to be the club scene. The announcement
cards for club events are clearly, hands down, far and away the cutting
edge of design and typography..

writing is becoming a common means for writers to enter into the sphere
of digital art. The First International Hypertext Competition took
place in 1998 and pointed to a growth of webzines and online journals
which promote the exploration of hypertexts. While hypertext writing
utilizes the most fundamental of processes (links) as the tricks of
the trade, the results are as varied as you could expect.

Ghost City by Jody
have just discovered Ghost City by Jody Zellen and I think it's digital
art. It's found on the web and it comes from the primordial 0,1 universe
but some similar such things don't often come off with this much style.
It's designy I must admit, but that's a mark in it's favor. It seems
to have no purpose.....so chalk another.

Digital Turf: Australia
Digital art and culture is growing all over
the world and some cultures are producing more than their share. While
surfing you may have noticed that ".au" is the source for
many innovative transmissions. From webzines to journals of theory,
the aussies are making their mark on the web and in the expanding
discourse of new media.

and New Media
Digital media has underwritten the scenario
of architectural practice. It's ubiquity in the design process has
generated what can be thought of as the field, or the conditions of
the scenario. Within the parameters of the field conditions, which
includes the texts of historical praxis, structural
plans and existing landmarks, a negotiated and reconciled practice
takes place. The media itself circumscribes its presentational and
representational modes. Drawing, for instance, is no longer an inscription.
In this scenario it is a mediated authority; a digital rendering.
The textual/rendering surface has become permanently bistable.
We are always looking AT it and then THROUGH it, and this oscillation
creates a different implied ideal of decorum, both stylistic and behavioral.
