 	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...
