syn·site

sin.sīt
noun, verb

1: BLIP. Any experience, exchange, environment, observation, object, or relationship of objects crystallized in a networked space — whether actual or virtual — distinguished by an equation of universal and specific inputs. » Gazing into the hyper-saturated yellow-green pool of soggy, disintegrated oak pollen, she found herself briefly immersed in a SYN-SITE of her childhood home and #ADFF2F.

2: COMPOUNDING. A compounding reconfiguration of distilled fragments — fragments of selves, sites, and associations. It activates at the intersection of the specific and the abstract, the internal and external, the actual and the virtual, the organic and the synthetic. It's at once an artwork and a network, at once a space and a memory. Realized, it approximates a crystallized, collaborative consciousness. » John aspires to create a grand web-based SYN-SITE, an interactive sculpture park that exists as a conceptual re-working of the state of Texas.

< ORIGIN > The SITE/NON-SITE theories of Robert Smithson, revisited in light of today's NETWORK AESTHETICS. < CONTRA > In both its blip and compounding manifestations, SYN-SITE disrupts DRIFT
