Re: <nettime> Robert Adrian, 1935 - 2015


RAX was our daddy. for many of us, down to the 7th generation media
artists. mourning him is a psychedelic experience right now, life
changing memories for a life changing artist.

I remember visiting him, he had a pine or mutt client open to read
nettime. we talked about this list, he had bitter tones for the sort of
marketing approach of academics. but he never stopped reading it, like
many here.. I will never forget the monitor he had for reading mails:
turned vertical, with a beautiful tone and font rendering, attuned with
his aging eyes.

If there is ever an artist for the digital age,
the earliest genius I can think of was Robert Adrian X.

may his night be light
