Truck :: n. a self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods is a blog exhibiting a cornucopia of digital art, e-lit, net art, animations, writing and poetry by a wide range of artists and writers. A few weeks ago Erik Rzepka, Truck’s curator for the month of December, invited me to contribute something. So I created soma suture, which I remixed from Turning Away Toward + rawVamp + some texts from various posts at Truck in December. As a remix, soma suture also appears at R3/\/\1X\/\/0RX (a little differently).

Today is New Year’s Eve so soma suture is obviously my last remix of 2012 but it may also be the last remix I create in Flash. I love working in Flash but I’d like to create e-lit for all kinds of screens and devices, including mobile. So… Do I feel a New Year’s Resolution coming on?… WTF!… Yes… I resolve to make future remixes in JavaScript and HTML5 in 2013!

Happy New Year!

My friend Toni Lebusque is an artist who makes images with pen and pastels as well as digital media and lately she’s been inscribing her wonderful drawings into her flesh. I’ve never been tempted to get a tattoo myself, I’m far too variable, but I can relate to that desire to embody, to embolden the body, to flesh out, to be art in the flesh. It feels somehow connected, although diametrically different, to what draws me in much of my creative work – bringing viscera and flesh into the virtual, see: rawVamp, rawLorem Ipsum, IntraVenus or couplings.

So what do I do? I turn Toni’s tattoos electronic. Well, there’s no ‘arm in it, is there? (sorry;-)
