2007 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
I request a Rockefeller New Media Fellowship to create a new web-based work made entirely of processed streams of text that would form an image, an "impression" of sprawl. The title of the work, SprawlCode, derives from a series of works in the last five years involving software development, textual collage, image sequencing, and writing. But this next phase will incorporate entirely new features involving real-time text processing, hypertext, and expanded topics and themes. My goal is to translate my interrogation of sprawl, as an existential condition of language and "placeways," into a closer performative union with the Internet and its emerging cultural resources.
