No art explosion yet, but it's coming...


So I got a bunch of my books today. I've got New Media in Art by Michael Rush, New Media Art by Mark Tribe, and Everyware: The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing by Adam Greenfield. I haven't gotten a chance to look at the Rush book too much yet, but apparently there are a ton of artists who had stuff at SITE Santa Fe (the big fancy modern art museum here. It's actually pretty awesome), where my mom works, so I'm going to be way up on those artists. Tribe's book is pretty awesome though. It has all the webpages of the art and the artists, so you can actually look at what they're talking about. My favorite thing in there was called Every Icon (it was at SITE Santa fe!) by John F Simon. I'd explain it, but I suck at explaining so here's the link instead: http://www.numeral.com/everyicon.html According to the book, it takes trillions of years. O.O
Anyway, I've decided that I really want to do some kind of interactive art, though I'm not sure how yet. I was thinking maybe some kind of music program type thing, but I'm not going to say much about it until it's developed further.
In other news, it's really hot here in santa fe, my dad is going crazy vaccuuming, and my mom's cooking, making it even hotter. I'm hiding out in my room right now with the cat, listening to Bayside, and pretending that I'm still at school where I can hang out by myself for a while without people bothering me.
I might have to change over blogs soon though, because I don't know if there's a way to put any media up on this one, and I'd rather have that than have a million links to youtube and various other file storing sites. We'll see.
