vertical blanking interval

vertical blanking interval, vivian selbo's project, investigates the gap between signals: the space between the keyboard and the chair, between need and desire, the net and tv, push and pull, flattery and innuendo.

This project follows "enclosed caption viewing" that was featured in Slate magazine's online gallery.

vertical blanking interval went online on adaweb in december 1996.

Awesome!

My English is not very good. I'm from Taiwan. But your work opened my eyes. For the first time I know that there's so-called internet art, and that the "Authority" of the net can be crashed and challenged. That's the marvelous thing about modern art! Thank you!

there is no such thing as a single-solitary point of origin in the digital age.

nowadays-information is being created by sources providing partial elements, all acros the globe--finally coming together somewhere in the process, usually in the end, on your television, on your monitor, in your brain. it used to be from one source, whether it be man or agency. but since we can communicate with each other more greatly than we ever could before, information is now a group effort, making it susceptible to distortion via passing it on. as marshall mcluhan once said: "In the electronic age, rumours become news."

Where am I? I was looking for a potato knish and all of the sudden there are strange things flashing in front of me. Is this some kind of communist propaganda? I know all about it, my cousin Heimie use to proliferate that kind of stuff, you know, before McCarthy and all of that. You kids are way ahead of anything I ever thought about when I was your age. Sei Gesund! (That means be well.) You should play outside. Good bye!
