THE ECONOMY OF MOTION BY MARK AMERIKA

Mark Amerika has been a prolific and creative force exploring the worlds
of net art and writing (both offline and online), while developing a
theoretical and creative response to the changing media and potential
opportunities that those create.


He loves to call himself a "digital jack-of-all-trades", and it is true
that his online networking has always been focused on the collection and
the remix of images, texts, codes, sounds, multimedia, in terms of
literary, theatrical and pedagogical and psychogeography theories.

 From his early novels, including, "Sexual Blood" e "The Kafka
chronicles" novels, which explore a free-flowing exploration of thought
processes channeled through experimental wordplay and crashing narrative
disjunctions, to his various net.art projects that expand on what it
means to be a writer in the digital/post-digital age (among which we
remember "How to be an internet artist" [1], "Expanding the concept of
Writing" [2], "Becoming a remixologist" [3], "Portrait of a VJ" [4],
"Meta/Data a digital poetics" [5]) it's quite impossible to tells about
all his artworks. Furthermore, it's useless to do it because of the many
online interviews he did and the completeness of his website

The following interview took place via email, while Mark Amerika was in
the middle of promoting another project "Remixthebook", somewhat
representative of his entire oeuvre. A book, published by Univeristy of
Minnesota Press, which relies on a website (remixthebook.com) as a hub
with the aim to digitally remix some of the theories expressed (by
authors such as Janneke Adema, Beiguelman Giselle, Julie Carr, David
Gunkel, Gary Hall, Frieder nake, Craig Saper Darren Tofts, Gregory
Ulmer, Chad Mossholder, Michael Theodore, Michelle Ellsworth, Rick
Silva, Will Luers, Yoshi Sodeoka, Mark McCoin, Curt Cloninger, Kate
Armstrong, Maria Miranda) in the book.
