syn·site

sin.sīt
noun, verb

1: CONVERGING. 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.

2: EXPANDING. 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 is at once artwork and network, space and memory. Realized, it approximates a crystallized, collaborative consciousness. » Christine aspires to create a grand web-based SYN-SITE: a metaphorical Texas.

< ORIGIN > The SITE/NON-SITE theory of Robert Smithson, revisited in light of today's NETWORK AESTHETICS. < CAVEAT > FAULT LINES may fracture the crystallized consciousness.
