Hello List,

Barbara - Thanks for these links to your works.  I like the way you
describe #4 - I always struggle with thinking through this part of coded
work - the presence of images and video - and your code explicitly breaks
these down (or disturbs them).

Xtine - *On the Web* has such a lovely echo/loop of paper and web media,
text and design, and such a simple gesture of traveling through the book,
pen in hand, replacing road with web, then laboriously scanning to
re-create the work online.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who posted this month to share your thoughts
and to tell us about your projects.  I enjoyed this discussion immensely
and hope that it was valuable to each of you to get some thoughts on paper
and bounce them around among the respondents and list members.

Thanks especially to those who were actively reading and or responding,
working to pull out some difficult, sometimes controversial ideas around
the performativity of code (in a practical sense).

I hope, as GH mentioned, that perhaps something more can come out of the
connections that we have made here - be it an exhibition, a continued
private discussion, or a future in-person meeting.

For those of you that are new to the list, we also hope you stay and
participate in future CRUMB discussions.

And as always, if something pops to mind that continues some of the lines
of thought started this month, feel free to post or to message me
privately, I will be glad to keep in touch.

Bye for Now.

Victoria Bradbury
