Talks is a work of e-literature, an ever changing networked narrative fuelled by Twitter activity and semantically organised by Zemanta.

Each time the Talks is accessed or reloaded it creates a short social network like narrative.

How? First it creates a text from recent Twitts then is using Zemanta service to extract some overall semantics (tags, related articles). A title of related article is taken for a title of current iteration of the Talks. Then the discussion made of related Twitts (based on tags) is added. (Text sent to Zemanta is not visible to the reader of the Talks.)

And your hair is in a mess

May 2008

Web poem that changes with the weather in Ljubljana

Sometime around the year 1990, on the left embankment of the river Ljubljanica, just before Tromostovje one could read the following graffitti: Sonček je in ti si skuštrana (The sun is shining and your hair is in a mess). Later on I learned that the author of this sentance was the poetess and painter Mateja Sever. Her graffitti inspired this poem. I have changes in so much that I have substituted the word Sun by - a few hours ol - feed from the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia and its data on the weather in Ljubljana.

So, if you are reading the poem in Ljubljana it will describe the same weather as you can see through the window.

English version of the poem takes weather from the BBC Weather Centre, Observations for Ljubljana.

March / September 2007

Visual interventions into the web pages. Firefox extension.

The image of any give Web page (or the visible part of the Web page if it is bigger than the computer screen) is understood as a matrix that reproduces itself. The size, height, and width of the reproduction are transformed depending on the matrix. The reproduction is placed in a selected section of the matrix and becomes part of it. The process repeats several times. The result is an unrepeatable visual structure that is based on manipulations of the particular Web page.

Pesmi (poems)

December 2000

E-poem in form of emails, using subject, e-mail body and fake e-mail addresses of the sender as part of the project content. In Slovene only.

After visitor entered its e-mail address, 20 e-mails were sent to its e-mail.

As email addresses were fake the received e-mails seemed to arrive from 20 Slovene corporations that were among the most visible ones at the time. But instead of expected commercial message or spam the poem was sent.

Assuming that e-mails were displayed by the date and time, a poem appeared in the subject lines of the received e-mails.

Next to the verse in the subject line there was a verse of the poem also in the body of e-mail. Next to 'linear' reading of the poem through subject lines the reading of the poem could be 'changed' by the verse from the opened e-mail. Another way to read the poem was just to take a verse/subject line in combination with the verse in the body of email.

Due to spam issues of the mail server the work is no longer active.
