How COVID-19 Has Impacted Media Consumption, by Generation View the high-resolution of the infographic by clicking here. Since March of this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced millions of people to physically distance themselves from others, yet many feel closer to their loved ones than ever before.

REWIND REWIND is a research project (2004 - ongoing) , that provides a research resource to address the gap in historical knowledge of the evolution of electronic media arts in the UK, by investigating specifically the first two decades of artists’ works in video. There was a danger that many of these works might disappear because of their ephemeral nature and poor technical condition. The project conserves and preserves them, to enable further scholarly activity. Rewind has remastered and archived over 450 works (single screen and installation) on Digital Betacam and as high quality files on Hard Disc. These new masters have been deposited at the University of Dundee and the Scottish Screen Archive (National Libraries of Scotland). This website includes a database with detailed information, technical information, ephemera, reviews and critical texts on the artists & works, paper archive, interviews, oral testimony, clips and still images from all the works with searchable index.

untitled Readers: My friend Chuck sent me this article on income inequality for my blog. I think it is an important and timely topic to discuss. Mona Chalabi (photo, right) published an article in The Guardian back in April. Paleodictyon Paleodictyon A project by Simon Geilfus, Yannick Jacquet and Thomas Vaquié Centre Pompidou Metz, France, October 6th 2012 Loosely inspired by the work and research of deep-sea expert Peter A. Rona, the piece abolishes notions of scale by contrasting micro-architecture with human construction. Fascinated by the marks left by unknown creatures called Paleodictyon Nodosum, he offers the hypothesis that these hexagonal structures are designed in order to cultivate bacteria.
