opening Wed. June 11th 1pm



condensed S Korea online SL performance text
with Sandy Baldwin and Baruch Gottlieb

Alan Sondheim is a unique figure in contemporary cyber culture. A 
hyper-prolific artist, poet, and critic, Sondheim produces dozens of new works 
every week and publishes these in a variety of venues from conferences to 
galleries to Second Life to the numerous mailing lists he inhabits.

His online persona and his work are utterly symbiotic; his language straddles 
the edge of coherence between the machine language of code and the global 
lingua franca.  English is unique in that it is used by 100% of the computers 
of the world as well as by a significant section of human society.  Sometimes 
it is hard to tell if Sondheim's work is created by a human or by an automaton.

Alan Sondheim's use of language in his oeuvre exemplifies the infrastructural 
actuality of English today.  Often repetitive, railing away on a tangent, 
riddled with codes and surging with automatic energies, Sondheim evokes the 
perverse vitality of the proto-cyborg consciousness of our age and it's obscene 
hyperproduction.

Human forms appear as avatars in Sondheim's videos only to be corrupted, 
smashed and smeared by irrepressible surges of information, rendering palpable 
the fragility of human meaning in the age of self-perpetuating automatic 
processes, the masochistic ecstasies of the human body at the mercy of it's 
machines.
