syn·site

sin.sīt
noun, verb

1: BLIP. 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. » Gazing into the hyper-saturated yellow-green pool of soggy, disintegrated oak pollen, she found herself briefly immersed in a SYN-SITE of her childhood home and #ADFF2F.

2: COMPOUNDING. 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's at once an artwork and a network, at once a space and a memory. Realized, it approximates a crystallized, collaborative consciousness. » John aspires to create a grand web-based SYN-SITE, an interactive sculpture park that exists as a conceptual re-working of the state of Texas.

< ORIGIN > The SITE/NON-SITE theories of Robert Smithson, revisited in light of today's NETWORK AESTHETICS. < CONTRA > In both its blip and compounding manifestations, SYN-SITE disrupts DRIFT

one continuous self, two sides of a vivacious equation looped together in a continual narrative of daily living and human existence. The glitch splits the difference; it is a plank that passes between the two.

The matador is gored, the real jumps out and punctures the screen or strip of film, destroying it. . . . The challenge isn’t to depict this real realistically, or even ‘well’, but to approach it in the full knowledge that, like some roving black hole, it represents (though that’s not the right word anymore) the point at which the writing’s entire project crumples and implodes.
