The curators write: "Never perfect, never complete or altogether comprehensive, never final, but always tentative, wanting, deficient, incomplete, unnerving - representation is failure, representation is loss - and yet capable, versatile, illuminating, productive, and life-saving.... Each and every map is pursuing its particular job, its specific incremental addition to the world, its reading of specific elements, components, details, of the world, its undoing of those same elements, specificities, particulars; while, simultaneously, pointing - insidiously and exuberantly - to that always over-determined totality of all measures and things, that which we like to call reality.

Re: RHIZOME RAW: Soren Pold's article on the work of Christophe Bruno

cool! also Christophe was a very articulate and often humorous guest
on -empyre- for the topic "is modernity our antiquity?" , the first of
the documenta 12 -related conversations we did, in March 2006.
Christiane Paul, Dirk Vekemans, and Erik Kluitenberg were in the panel
as well. Here's Christophe;;;;;;;

Jason, !! This is my most favorite ever of all your amazing works.
I can't get past level 5 possibly because
I am trying to keep shooting and I don't want to read your game
theories. Alarmingly, the statistical
zombies are shooting me.

October 2007 on -empyre-: "DNA Poetics"

October 2007 on -empyre-: "DNA Poetics"

Two words well placed, no? After Judith Roof's "The
Poetics of DNA". That DNA (hereafter Code) is
perhaps, but a metaphor for a substance (and/or
protocol?) is what concerns us here, this month of
October, on -empyre-.

The Code is meaningful, we can agree. But of what
meaning is it full? Meaningful of biology? Meaningful
of poetry? Should we speak of the people's (public)
Code? A corporatized (private) Code?
Who is charged with its derivation?
With the responsibility of Code's proof?

Is there no Code, and only 'codes'?
