 		You begin to sense the byshadows that stretch from the awe of
	 	global dominance. How the intersecting systems help pull us
	 	apart, leaving us vague, drained, docile, soft in our inner
	 	discourse, willing to be shaped, to be overwhelmed -- easy
	 	retreats, half beliefs. Works of art are complex formal
	 	interventions within discursive traditions and their myriad
	 	filiations. These interventions are defined precisely by
	 	their incomparable capacity to trace the dynamics of
	 	historical process in paradoxical gestures of simultaneously
	 	prognostic and mnemonic temporalities.

 > > > > Synopsis: The 12hr-ISBN-JPEG Project began December 30, 1994.

 A `round-the-clock posting of sequenced hypermodern imagery from
 { brad brace }. The hypermodern minimizes the familiar, the known,
 the recognizable; it suspends identity, relations and history. This
 discourse, far from determining the locus in which it speaks, is
 avoiding the ground on which it could find support. It is trying to
 operate a decentering that leaves no privilege to any center.


			 		The 12-hour ISBN JPEG Project
			 		-----------------------------
 			   	 	         since 1994


 Pointless Hypermodern Imagery... posted/mailed every 12 hours... a
 spectral, trajective alignment for the 00`s! A continuum of
 minimalist masks in the face of catastrophe; conjuring up
 transformative metaphors for the everyday... A poetic reversibility
 of exclusive events...

 A post-rhetorical, continuous, apparently random sequence of
 imagery...  genuine gritty, greyscale...  corruptable, compact,
 collectable and compelling convergence. The voluptuousness of the
 grey imminence: the art of making the other disappear. Continual
 visual impact; an optical drumming, sculpted in duration, on the
 endless present of the Net.

 An extension of the printed ISBN-Book (0-9690745) series...
 critically unassimilable... imagery is gradually acquired, selected
 and re-sequenced over time...  ineluctable, vertiginous connections.
 The 12hr dialtone...

 [ see http://www.eskimo.com/~bbrace/netcom/books.txt ]

 KEYWORDS: >> Disconnected, disjunctive, distended, de-centered,
 de-composed, ambiguous, augmented, ambilavent, homogeneous,

 obsessive, obscure, obdurate... >> Promulgated, personal, permeable,
 prolonged, polymorphous, provocative, poetic, plural, perverse,
 potent, prophetic, pathological, pointless... >> Emergent, empty,
 evolving, eccentric, eclectic, egregious, exciting, entertaining,
 evasive, entropic, erotic, entrancing, enduring, expansive...

 ~ Mirror-sites requested! Archives too! The latest new jpeg will
   always be named, 12hr.jpeg Average size of images is only 45K.
 ~ Perl program to mirror ftp-sites/sub-directories:
   src.doc.ic.ac.uk/packages/mirror

 ~ Postings to usenet newsgroups: alt.12hr alt.binaries.pictures.12hr
   alt.binaries.pictures.misc alt.binaries.pictures.fine-art.misc

 * * Ask your system's news-administrator to carry these groups!
 (There are also usenet image browsers: TIFNY, PluckIt, Picture Agent,
 PictureView, Extractor97, NewsRover, Binary News Assistant, EasyNews)

 ~	~ This interminable, relentless sequence of posted imagery began
	 in earnest on December 30, 1994. The basic structure of the
	 project has been over three decades in the making. Each 12-hour
	 posting is like the turning of a page; providing ample time for
	 reflection, interruption, and assimilation.

 ~ The sites listed above also contain information on other cultural
 projects and sources.

 ~ A very low-volume, moderated mailing list for announcements and
 occasional commentary related to this project has been established at
 topica.com /subscribe 12hr-isbn-jpeg

 	 The image was to make nothing visible but their connection with
	 one another by space and air, yet each surrounded by the unique
	 aura that disengages every deeply seen image from the world of
	 irrelevant relationships and calls forth a tremor of astonishment
	 at its fateful necessity. Thus from artworks of dead masters,
	 over-life-size strangeness whose names we do not know and do not
	 wish to know, look out at us enigmatically as symbols of all
	 being.

 Big Grey Bricks:

 This project also serves as a rehearsal for its culmination as a series of
 offset-printed volumes: each 800+ full-bleed pages (5x8"_300lpi), where the
 full integrated rhythm of greyscale-sequence can be more intricately
 resolved. I'd provide all design, prepress and production.

 --
 This project has not received government art-subsidies. Some
 opportunities still exist for financially assisting the publication
 of gallery-editions of large (33x46") prints; perhaps (Iris giclees)
 inkjet duotones or extended-black quadtones. Other supporters receive rare
 copies of the first three web-offset printed ISBN-Books.
 Contributions and requests for 12hr-email-subscriptions, can also be
 made at http://bbrace.laughingsquid.net/buy-into.html, or by mailed
 cheque/check: $5/mo $50/yr. Institutions must pay for any images
 retained longer than 12 hours.

 --
 ISBN is International Standard Book Number. JPEG and GIF are types of
 image files. Get the text-file, 'pictures-faq' to learn how to view
 or translate these images. [http://www.eskimo.com/~bbrace/netcom/
 pictures-faq.html] Probably best viewed on rare 256-level grayscale
 monitors.
