L&M: What do you think are some of the most important things in life
inspire you to do the work that you do? How do you develop your
hybridizations and/or elemental relationships?
EJ: First of all, I create to give meaning to my life. I draw
from the natural world; rock formations, seedpods, nests; shapes that
resonate with reproduction, growth and repetition. I feel compelled to
in ways that create meaning. I pull from somewhere deep inside, not from
purely analytical space, so my hybridizations are very spontaneous and
uncalculated. They are developed subconsciously then meaning is assigned
I refine and title each piece.

FEATURE.REVIEW: Reflections on Conceptual Art and its relation to New
a month long conversation at Empyre
BY: Eduardo Navas
I was a guest speaker on Empyre during the month of April 2005. The
following text is a revision of two particular postings on Conceptual
which I here use as launching platforms to reflect on the long debate
took place between Raul Ferrera Balanquet (CU/MX), Kate Southworth and
Patrick Simons(UK), and myself. Other invited guests included Lucrezia
Cippitelli (IT), Heidi Figueroa Sarriera (PR), Raquel Herrera Ferrer
Lucas Bambozzi (BR), Andres Burbano (CO), and Joeser Alvarez.

The conversation was fruitful in various ways, ranging from abstract
theoretical propositions to more personal statements. The online
proved to be one of the most important experiences for me until now,
I learned that colonial ideology is more powerful than I expected. It is
thanks to Raul's intervention (this is how he considered his writing)
that I
realized this shortly after the discussion came to a close. Such
will be the subject of reflection for the second part of this series. In
this first part I will focus on the premise proposed by Christina McPhee
the month long conversation.
In an ongoing collaboration, this month NAR features another .PDF
published in a minima:: No.12, a media and contemporary art publication
based in Spain. This month features "Subjective, intimate and public" by
Marina Zerbarini.</font></strong>

The idea that only a great amount of information inflowing in a dynamic
random form could give rise to which I looked for was achieved using
400 files, only some of which, never foreseeable nor programmable are
by the observer. At the moment it is a "work in progress" in its 1st
It is a narrative project for the Internet, based on short stories by
Joyce, in which I develop the concepts of hypertext, randomness,
participation and simulation of living and dynamic systems in real time.
Through hypertext and by creating a matrix of potential
only some of which will be updated as a result of the interaction with
users, we try to make possible a different movement, a reading
into a set of problems, a reading/writing which multiplies the production
senses, the reader can interpret, arrange and structure it as regards
perception and production.

"Eveline" by Joyce narrates the story of a young woman who lives with
family in Dublin. The appearance of a man who would take her to live in
Buenos Aires sets in motion her fantasies on the happy life she could
in opposition to her reality
