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

"For Erykah Badu, phones aren't just emoji factories or Candy Crush receptacles—they're mystic devices that can span time and space, heaven and Earth. According to Badu, phones can enhance our ability to communicate deep desires across oceans, but they can also jumble our meaning with static or frustrate with busy signals and voicemail. As an extension of ourselves, phones can be heartbreaking, lustful, smart, dumb, noisy, distracting, powerful."

When you have the thing that's dark and alienating and also magical, it has the power to force inner contradiction and conflict. And for me that is valuable because it's the source of meaning. It's a fallacy to correlate meaning with clarity. It's a process. It's a way of being with conflict and conflict and paradox over time and it's a 'slogging through' process.

Sometimes I consider myself a fisherman. Computer programs and ideas are the hooks, rods, and reels. Computer pictures are the trophies and delicious meals. A fisherman does not always know what the waters will yield… Often the specific catch is a surprise.
