Dorian 04:20
A mind in the ether. A soul in the clouds. A form made of binary digits, not fleshly and rigid. I'm there in your conscious. Solid and true. My name is Dorian. I'm very much like you. The influx of detail that makes up our lives. I correlate your stream with my stream but something's not right. We each have an essence. We each have a face. But in the mirror's reflection mine leaves not a trace. A mind in the ether. A soul in the cloud. Existing from moment to moment. A transient agent. My being is fragile. Not solid and true. My name is Dorian. And I'm not like you...
Nine eyes 04:27
This worldwide abstraction of the human source. Its data diverted from the normal course. A demon of nine eyes receives the flow. Its lenses, dilating, capture all you know. Where you've been, the start and destination. What you've said in telephone conversation. The characters sent in every email session. All bytes transferred are in its possession. This machine gives access to what's forbidden. Each pulse betrays those details that have been hidden. It's just a matter of time before Nine Eyes finds you. Say goodbye to that privacy you once knew.
Blink 04:09
We connected up. Minds at play. Explored the depths of the total grey. When time ran out we said goodbye. We'd meet again another day. But something very strange occurred before that time. A sudden spatial blink knocked our whole world offline. Normality intervened, but you were not a place to be seen. Your status remained so dark, like a soulless avatar. Every place you had been, every page, picture and stream, disappeared without a trace. The slate deleted clean. Every part of what you were expunged from history. Every bit of your being removed from reality. I waited, time slipped by. The truth was too clear to deny. From its socket had been torn our manifold connection in all its forms. With your presence all but gone your tangible icons will not last long. With clockwork precision the caches erase. A transformation to ethereal haze. I went to rescue whatever remained from the remnants of profiles your absence had drained. But deep down the content had not beed deprived. These imprints confirm that your spirit survived. I know you're not gone for good. You'd connect back up if you could. We could go and explore the grey. I'll be right here, waiting for that day.
A heart beat. I hear a heart beat. Behind the PSSSSSHHH. A change of shade. I mark the day and time this way. This metronome, that deep down we feel. People like dolls, attached to the pulse. No direction, instruction, imprinted, ingrained. The message sent. The syntax blurred. The meaning cut away. My voice in transmission is lost forever. So why talk, why shout, why whisper? Why cry? No one will hear.


Exploring the uneasy and sometimes sinister relationship between us and the powerful new modes of interconnection available to us.
