The idea is to resist noise, speech, rumors by mobilizing photography's
silence; to resist movements, flows, and speed by using its immobility; to
resist the explosion of communication and information by brandishing its
secrecy; and to resist the moral imperative of meaning by deploying its
absence of signification.

Couldn't find anything that resembled your description of the 12 hour
project. Is this the interim before the end? Will it be available in the
future? Will archives of the past postings be available? 

New to the word hypertext but very interested in connecting the concept
with graduate writing programs and letterpress. 

Should I just give your last listserv posting to a student who knows more
about computers or is the site incomplete at this time, as it seems.

 Wow, I didn¹t realize that you were posting at the same nearly, or I
would have sent you a little chat:-) I¹m digging the 12 hour series. I
nearly have enough of them for a good slide show, then I¹m really going to
enjoy them more. I¹m not sure if the hotmail address is working or not
try:  ---@earthlink.net if you would like to write back, that one is

Q: You're a pioneer of sorts. The 12hr-ISBN-JPEG Project began at the end
of 1994 and has run continuously since then. Can you describe the
project--what it does, where the images come from, etc.? How are ISBNs

Q: Do you have a particular interest in nonstandard net art formats such
as usenet, ftp, email, or are/where you simply using the technology
available to you at the time? 

Q: What's your position on art vis-a-vis the museum? What are the perfect
conditions for artmaking?

I've been enjoying these odd posts for several months, off and on.  What
are these?  12 hour exposures?  What a concept!  :)  I've been looking for
one to use as a background for my sig or webpage, if I find one mostly
dark with whispery hints of smoke.  Is this something you would give me
permission to use, if I found the right pic?

 Hello Brad Brace, I never saw the repost of 04318 on the 2 newsgruops I
am currently subscribed to. They are alt.binaries.pictures.12hr and
alt.binaries.pictures.fine-art.misc . Is there another one I should be
subscribing to? or should I contact my n etwork adm.  Let me know and I
will be happy to do either. I have really fallen in love with your project
over the past year and have told any one who will listen to me about it. 
It's a big part of my online experience. I literally look forward to it
ever yday .  the first thing I do when I go online is save your jpeg in my
bbrace folder everyday. Very nice work!  Is there anyway I can get
archived files from you?  I haven't used them yet in any work that I am
currently involved in, but i do have some idea s and will give you FULL
credit for your wonderful project if and when things unfold as they
should. happily keeping up with you, David Koch

The photographic act consists of entering this space
      of intimate complicity, not to master it,
         but to play along with it
                  and to demonstrate
                      that nothing has been decided
"What cannot be said
              must be kept silent."
              But what cannot be said
                       can also be kept silent
                                      through a display
                                         of images.

This raw phenomenology of the photographic image is a bit like negative
theology. It is "apophatic," as we used to call the practice of proving
God's existence by focusing on what he wasn't rather than on what he was. 
The same thing happens with our knowledge of the world and its objects.
The idea is to reveal such a knowledge in its emptiness, by default (en
creux)  rather than in an open confrontation (in any case impossible). In
photography, it is the writing of light which serves as the medium for
this elision of meaning and this quasi-experimental revelation (in
theoretical works, it is language which functions as the thought's
symbolic filter).

What is at stake (at play, en jeu) is the place of reality, the question
of its degree. It is perhaps not a surprise that photography developed as
a technological medium in the industrial age, when reality started to
disappear. It is even perhaps the disappearance of reality that triggered
this technical form. Reality found a way to mutate into an image. This
puts into question our simplistic explanations about the birth of
technology and the advent of the modern world. It is perhaps not
technologies and media which have caused our now famous disappearance of
reality. On the contrary, it is probable that all our technologies (fatal
offsprings that they are)  arise from the gradual extinction of reality.
