>Alex Galloway's "Starrynight" and "Spiral" appear as part of "Rhizome
>Remix," an artist's series designed to creatively map the information in
>the Rhizome online archive. is a non-profit organization and
>online magazine dedicated to fostering communication and community in the
>field of new media art. Located at, the Rhizome
>Artbase is an online archive of Internet art projects while the Rhizome
>Contentbase archives related texts, such as articles, interviews, and
>conversations. Together they function as a comprehensive resource for
>information and critical writing about what's going on at the intersection
>of emerging technology and contemporary art. The "Starrynight" browser
>window is just that - a sky filled with stars, each representing an entry
>in the Contentbase. The user clicks on a star and triggers a pop-up menu of
>keywords that appear in the text entry. The user then chooses a keyword and
>a constellation linking all of the stars with that word appears to help
>guide him or her through the Contentbase by related texts. In this way,
>navigating Rhizome's new media art archive becomes an aesthetic, engaging
>experience unto itself - a new media art project in its own right.
>ALEX GALLOWAY is editor of, a leading platform for new media
>art. He has written on theoretical issues surrounding digital technologies
>and is editing the forthcoming book "RHIZOME: Net, Art, Culture." Galloway
>lectures on new media art both in the US and around Europe. On March 15 he
>will participate in the "Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium" at UC
>Langton's REALLY WIRED series brings professionals from a variety of
>disciplines together to discuss art in our digital age. The program will
>don a few different hats; three types of events will create a balanced
>program and offer audiences different types of engagement with the
>speakers. In the first, represented by "Information mapping at
>", Langton will invite prominent artists, researchers, designers
>and theorists to give lectures or presentations that explore the
>relationship between artists, audiences and technologies. The second REALLY
>WIRED format is an informal gathering to foster conversation. Another
>REALLY WIRED will take the form of an artist talk. The artist featured in
>Langton's Internet exhibition program NetWork will present his or her work
>and discuss the artistic issues being addressed.
