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.

SYN (along with, at the same time | from Greek SYN, with | ~SYNTHETIC) + SITE (N: point of event, occupied space, internet address; V: to place in position | from Latin SITUS, location, idleness, forgetfulness | ~WEBSITE ¬cite ¬sight), cf. SITE/NON-SITE (from Robert Smithson, A PROVISIONAL THEORY OF NONSITES, 1968)

The software changes the blinkrate of the cursor in any program in which the user can type data...The rate is slowed down to the same number an adult body breathes per minute.
The cursor is considered as one of the precise entry point between sensible and virtual, between reality and data. By slowing down a digital rhythm and adapting it to a natural rhythm the artist questions the closest and closest relation between « natural » and « digital » occuring nowadays.

The name ["Cursor"] evoked the suspended moment before beginning anew, a moment that for me occurred about five minutes ago, when I opened a new blank document on my laptop, paused for one second…and began to type. That moment of fear, possibility, hesitation, decision, indecision, embracing not knowing. The moment between breathing in, and breathing out. The ellipsis. So Cursor became whatever I felt intensely motivated to do.

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.
