"Continuum." reflects upon the evolution of our collective history through
the real-time analysis of global news information networks. As no event
transpires in isolation, each moment of our existence is defined by the sum
of an infinite number of interconnected occurrences. Given that no
individual can absorb and process the totality of this information, how can
we obtain an informed notion of the present?

"Continuum." was commissioned by Oog online (http://volkskrant.nl/oog/), a
commentary and opinion platform for the online edition of De Volkskrant
(http://www.volkskrant.nl/) a major Dutch daily national newspaper.


Michael Takeo Magruder is an American artist based in the UK deploying New
and Technological Media within Contemporary Art contexts. He is a
long-standing member of King's Visualization Lab located in the Centre for
Computing in the Humanities, King's College London. His artworks have been
showcased in over 150 exhibitions and 30 countries. Artistically, his
interests concern the simultaneous utilization and dissection of new
technology as a means to explore the formal structures and conceptual
paradigms of the digital realm. He seeks to create artworks in which there
are no divisions between technologies, aesthetics, and concepts.
