Dear Brad Brace-
         My name is Steven Renfro and I am a rescent college graduate from
the University of Kansas film school. I am currently seeking a position to
assist a photographer whom I believe I could learn from. In my search, I
have run across some of the images that you have created. And, to get to
the point, I am curious to find out wether or not you need an assistant.
If you are at all interested in employing my services, I would be more
than gratefull to send an electronic copy of my resume along with 12
sample pieces of work (electronic or hardcopy). I thank you for your time
and, look forward to hearing from you soon.
                                                 Sincerely,
                                                             -Steven Renfro-

I was wondering if this picture was taken of a lake in Mattoon, Illinois ?
If not could you please tell me where this was taken ?

Thank you,

Brad did you know there are people that seem to not possibly be there in
the reflections of your pictures - it doesn't appear you have altered the
photos yet from the angle of the reflection they can't possibly be there
attached is an example from your last photo - forgive me my imaging
software isn't the best but you can see that this face is made-up of 4 or
five other faces - I have see these effects in everyone of your photos - i
don't know what to say to you

- i find your photos --- curious---

     dear {Brad Brace} ( by advance excuse my english!), fews days ago,
i've printed part of your text about " the 12hr ISBN-project" to read it
slowly. I don't know much of your work but i'm curious of your attitude on
the web that seems to be close to a collective project i'm working on
since March 99. We've opened a ftp site in Paris because it seems to us
the best way to distribute autonomous artistic pieces made with computers
( program, video, mp3 sound and so on...). The minimalist character of ftp
is a kind of response (or point of view) to animated web site. The
non-esthetic form of ftp permit to leave the place to artistic informatic
pieces, a neutral context in fact.  Adress >
                                                               
<ftp://www.491.org/teleferique>ftp://www.491.org/teleferique     I just
want to know a little bit more about your work  and point of view. Your
different ftp sites are much bigger than ours. I like it  very much...  
We're making different events in Paris and outside. The next one is  in    
Acces Local, 15 rue Martel 75010 Paris 01 47 70 12 00   5 december all

You seem to be arguing here that to be an innovative artist, you have to
make your own paints rather than buy them in a shop. Now I have some
sympathy for this - William Blake was a relentlessly radical - and
sometimes successful - innovator. But we must all use the existing
material things of our culture as the source for the creation of new
things. It depends entirely on whether you want to be a builder or a
decorator....

The problem with innovation is that you are necessarily on the periphery.
Hence, you cannot hope to corner a market. That simply goes with the lack
of territory. In the meantime, let those who want to live in the twee
downtowns and suburbs be. They are necessarily followers, rather than
leaders - so they constitute a large majority of like-minded consumers. If
you want to be recognized now for what you do, do like them and fiddle
with existing structures and content. If you want to innovate, then do so,
stop worrying about being accepted and become a curmudgeon, like Brad
Brace. It's the only way to cope.

I agree with Max Herman.  Brad Brace is a lazy-ass, sorry SOB.  Every
single day I click on that same girl's legs. 12-hour Internet hoax!

What exactly is he doing in Room 120 and 129?

First he afflicts people with this compulsive virus to their biological
clockwork; then he drops the entire global village for some trashy
doe-eyed, barefoot swamp tramp right out of Faulkner!  I have trouble
remembering what day it is anyway, and I hear there's fixin to be a panic
in Greenwich (on the Thames.) He even admitted it when I confronted him;
this made me suspicious.  But when I inspect it closely for some little
creative detail which only an artistic genius would notice without
prompting, I think it really is exactly the same picture.

No excuse! My product loyalty has been abused.

Chronic! Does the Grand Clockmaker go on vacation? Does He premit the
Clockwork Universe to come unwound?

Primitive peoples see it as related to the recent eclipse; they are
sacrificing village maidens to volcanoes in hopes Brad Brace will be
placated and post.  The more metaphysically-minded wonder if we are
intended to learn some kind of lesson.  I heard a girl's voice, with a
bandwidth somewhere between KISS and KLUV, speak in an earnest tone about
prayerful patience.

But perhaps Brad Brace is only a mighty patriarchal warrior like Joshua,
and has stopped the sun and moon in their courses across our blue window
so that a battle may be rewound and edited.

It's eternity in time; the one-point concentration which successfully
negotiates the Bardo realm of distracting illusion.  Anti-matter. Stasis.  
Heraclitian stat-ue, undraped; Parmenides exposed.

Dear Brad,

Thank you for your patience, I am now in a position to give you a final
answer.

I am afraid that, following a meeting with the curatorial team, the
project "The 12hr ISBN-JPEG Project" has not been selected for
presentation on GMI at this time. We are very sorry and hope this will not
prevent you from submitting further works in the future.

Many thanks for the time and effort you spent in applying and in
subsequent conversations.

Yours sincerely,

Fee.

I suspected that Brad Brace was some kind of fascist.  Look how he has
been playing with his clock.  It's so insidious.  First, in all innocence,
I start viewing his pix.  Nothing wrong with that.  Isn't there some kind
of federal law about truth in advertising, bait and switch? So now he's
had me holding my breath for several weeks of thirteen hour increments.  
It's like Apollo 13, even the Vatican is involved in the vigil. Each day I
waken with new hope; each day he dashes it.  The Island of the multiple
Days Before. What day is it?--yesterday!  Chained us in a Platonic cave,
without even moving shadows.  Parmenides never changing e-flow.

You know how superstition works, too. You start getting paranoid, "Maybe
it's a critique of me as fashion victim. Maybe Brad Brace KNOWS that I
never wear anything but my workout clothes around Waco."  Religious angst,
fear and guilt.  Sacrifice a credit card to appease the celestials.

Self-promoting. Narcissistic.  Delusions of doting grandmothers.  So, I
think you're imposing by exposing.  On the other hand, it's exactly why
I'm having trouble writing formula fiction, engaging stories, Jungian
rehashes.  What is remarkable to me-- real exoticism-- is the incredible
persistence of the everyday.  Your knobby little self that keeps on
pressing like you have energizer batteries.  Am I sounding like
Maxamillion? Yeah, but there is nothing more aesthetic than reality which
is gasping for air between the larger than lifes.

I also appreciate your heroic Titanic routine, trying to save time from
the ever tightening screws on the Brace.  (I've searched my heart more
earnestly.  Perhaps its the bubblegum music I listen to.  This has angered
him; the boom box is the clue. If I will listen to Mozart, the oracle
says, not only will my IQ improve, but Bradley will resume his rhythmic
response.)

Time for classical order. One day at a time.  Dearest diarist!

 Brad,

 I don't think that many people have had the balls to do this.  Look, I've
known you for a long time (at least virtually).  One thing that I've
always known is that you're constant as the North Star in your own
polemic, and I think there'sa lot to be said for consistency.  And I think
it's tremendously amusing that many in the net.art community have placed
you in the lunatic fringe for your views, without looking behind the
curtain of what your motivations might be.

 But then most aren;t obsessed with metanarrative like I am.

 So, I wonder what it is that you're looking for - the simple inversion of
the power relations in the art world?  Can't be that simple, and I'll slap
you if it's as easy as the old DADA maneuver.  Overthrow hegemony, empower
the poletariat, that sort of thing.  But then, I'm also thinking that
you're by definition one of art's 'last men standing', the loyal
opposition as to keep the the whole power structure visible, and that's
useful as well.

 But I wonder, what would happen in a world where the Brad Braces of the
world became hegemonic centers in themselves.  Would we see an aesthetic
banana republic, or would we see a fundamental paradigmatic shift in the
art world, or what? (Hey, it may seem far-fetched, but work with me
here)...

 I just think that it's so damned amusing to watch people dismiss what
you're trying to say when I think that what you're saying is probably
totally immaterial to the fact that you're screaming about these things in
the first place.

 And I don't think that many people have had the cojones or have turned up
the controls on the ol neural net far enough to ask these questions.

 ALmost sounds like it coudl be an interview...

My only complaint concerning b/rad is that the positin he has set for
himself is that in order that he be right everyone else has to be wrong --
and in being wrong we are sniveling cowards because we do not embrace his
truth -- as to his truth it is the same old modernist -- claim to a
decontextualized belief in the great leveling of technology in which
everything is fine and good as long as there are no standars by which to
define fine and good, or atleast none other than his.  it partakes of the
laissez fair capitalism of e-commerce in which there are no goods or
services just the promise of them.  Within this there is only a commitment
to embrace the phantasmagoric social formations that lies beyond any
possible utopian reforms other than its acceptance.  The condition that
this logic confirms or perhaps manifests is that of the collapse of the
imagined into "the real", binding us to late capitalism ideological
commitment to the flow of goods, services and events as cultural spectacle
therefore forming the rationalizing structures of a cultural symbollic.  
In other words an "authentic" premised on synthetic experience and none
other is now possible and real without announcing its instrumental
perversion? That is Brad has lost any self-reflexivity -- self doubt his
paranoid-narcisism has made all others who do not reflect his belief his
enemy for they represent that whcih opppresses and devalues him --
consequently he accuses them of doing exactly what hehas committed himself
to authoritarianism.

Brad, you continue to appropriate and exonerate theinsturmental logic of
the new the impoverished modernist political polarities of a techno
sublime . I'm sorrybut AI'm not at all surprised at your woeful lack of
intellect; that you continue to send mindlessly
 myopic and self congradulatory missives that plead for those who you
would dismiss and abuse to celebrate or even care that the 12hr-project
has passed the 4000-mark!  How pathetic it is that you would pander in
this manner. I'm sorry to say that bait as you may -- you have no audience
here.
