Subject: netbehaviour: New Work - Let Us Turn

Let Us Turn


               http://www.ultimateconcern.net/letusturn <http://www.ultimateconcern.net/letusturn>



A response to Walt Whitman's poem from Leaves of Grass, I think I could turn and live with the animals


An exploration of fear and sublimity when the subject experiences the organic as profoundly other


A reaction to the concept of nature in a technologised landscape


An experiment with spontaneous meaning-making using the random juxtaposition of image and word

nettime-l seems increasingly closed off; numerous voices aren't heard any 
more, for example nn, mez, Talan - I wrote them asking why the list is 
turning from cultural politics to more or less straight political economy, 
which can be found anywhere - the post was censored. Florian Cramer just 
stopped the Unstable Digest - there's no more codework there at all - he 
left his co-editors more or less in the lurch, not answering email, then 
disappearing, now back on nettime with politics. So that venue's gone and 
apparently at this point one can't even question the list direction 
onlist.

I certainly can understand nettime not posting me for any number of 
reasons - but the discourse is far more uniform now than ever. And since 
there's no discussion on nettime about this, as far as I can tell, I 
thought I'd open this up on other lists - (mez by the way suggested I do 
so).

Any thoughts?

- Alan, watching the net narrow a bit
