Residence | @arselectronica Center / Future Lab, Linz: http://residence.aec.at. It's a bit hard to access this old, hidden — and certainly completely forgotten — URL in a desktop browser (privacy error, but you can overpass it), I had more luck on the phone (screenshots). It's certainly an amazing find: it contains some of the rare online works before the year 2000 which I was unable to find at the current AE Future Lab website https://ars.electronica.art/futurelab/en. It's a pity that they don't take proper care of the past and older works they have on their servers. It also says a lot about how much new and recent works are actually worth and what fate awaits them in a few years.
Still in the basement, reorganizing my archive. Today's find: @artpress.revue, November 1999, Annick Bureaud, Utopies distribuées; and my 'e/motion HELP – is there anybody out there?'
The days are hot, so I'm cooling down in the basement while reorganizing my archive: @beauxarts_magazin, November 2003 – Sprinkling Menstrual Navigator becoming part of the @centrepompidou permanent collection
Tidying and reorganizing my archive, because it's too messy and I can't find things. The 1999 COMTECart (@cynetart today) Festival catalog had a cover with a graphic from my work b.ALT.ica. The poster as well, but I can't find it.
