The above statement was sent to me by artist Guthrie Lonergan in an email last week in response to the post New Media: Why It Doesn't Suck. I have reprinted it here with his permission because these sentiments have focused my own Eyebeam reblogger mandates for the next two weeks, which is basically this: If the purpose of Eyebeams reblog is to focus on Art and Technology, it is my intention to emphasize the AND in this bi-line. In other words, as a reblogger, I will be mixing news, gossip, and reviews of “older” mediums, with that of new media art, and technology. If a large part of New Media’s problem’s stem from not being integrated with the art world, perhaps we should try mixing them up a little and see what happens.
P.S. As always, please feel free to send links and tips to firstname.lastname@example.org.
