In 2000 I invited You to participate in an interactive experiment
From mid-September until the end of October I was travelling through
Germany, Sweden and Britain on an old MZ combination wherever you
sent me. Texts appeared on the site and comments and considerations
were added onto the forum. This way what you read was not not represent
an ordinary travel log but a rather de-localized experience.
The representation of content in the world-wide-web,
the display, interactivity and notions of pseudo-realistic perception
offers a concept of a site, a term attached to locality and physical
means of navigation.
Travelling in the real world exposed me to people, places
and local norms, yet by being remotely controlled I became
influenced by people I didnt actually meet. So how does this
influence the reading and writing of our perceived reality?
The important factor was to have less control over the content and
style of the texts and my destination respectively.
Thank you to the many helpers, especially oln for hard- and software
tuning, daniel for the laptop, and of course, you.
