Database? -

"Red River I"

This will likely be the only piece to escape the Secret Visual Laboratory as I fiddle with the idea of database art. My early research tells me that I'm in the "after-the-novelty-wears-off" phase of layering data as a digital collage. While a valid way to express the voluminous amount of data available even in a single event or subject, I doubt that I'm making any meaningful inroads to new media. My suspicion is that I'm going to need more programming knowledge than I think I'm willing to tackle at the moment but, who knows.

If all maps where like that we wouldn't get anywhere (because we'd keep our eyes on the map, not on the road).

Gee, I was thinking of Kesey and the age old question: "Are you on the bus? Or off the bus?" Further, dude. :)
