Igor Štromajer bo v Trubarjevi hiši literature predstavil svoje intermedijske umetniške projekte, s poudarkom na uporabi računalniškega jezika, kode, kot umetniškega izraznega sredstva. Koda je edini jezik, ki je izvršljiv, eksekutabilen, pravi Alexander R. Galloway. Stori natančno tisto, kar reče. S tega stališča gre za unikaten in do popolnosti izdelan umetni jezik, ki je pravzaprav namenjen strojem, oz. sporazumevanju med človekom in strojem, še posebej za izmenjavo informacij med stroji samimi, ne pa za komunikacijo med ljudmi.

“Izkušnja s kodo ni virtualna, temveč telesna, kot je telesno tudi vsako srečanje z informacijo, navodilom, ukazom, strojem. Stroji uživajo in so zelo lepi. Ob dotiku s kodo in strojem, postanejo lepi tudi ljudje. Zato jih neizmerno ljubim. Ko slišim za lepoto, zagrabim za revolver.”
(Igor Štromajer)

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.
