Hey  Mižu,
As promised here is a work for the SPAM exhibition. It fits the theme in one major way. Each level explores and works against the SPAM-like language of the US government.
Spam as government speak!
Have a play and let me know what you think.
Title: Myopic Blossoms
URL: http://www.secrettechnology.com/myopic/
Artwork type:  interactive art-game and digital poem

Artist/Digital Poet:  Jason Nelson

Brief Description:
Video games are a language, a grammar or linguistics of various texts. The sounds, the movement, the graphics, the rules or lack of rules, everything about a video game is a component of language.  A digital poetry game must combine all these elements, strange and interactive stanzas, crossed out and obstructed lines, sounds and texts triggered and lost during the play. Indeed the game interface becomes a road to inhabiting the digital poem, to coaxing the reader/player into living and creating within the game/poetry space.Myopic Blossoms is an art/ poetry/ adventuring game, a playland for exploring and disrupting the collisions and breaking-apart of our governments, the downfall of our political leaders.  Each level allows the reader/user/player to knock apart, slinging ideas into, the dominant social and political systems, coaxes them into rethinking corrupt/inept/elitist/militaristic governments.
And in another way Myopic Blossoms is an instrument for creative play. The reader/user/player becomes the creator, aiming for movement and sound, image and collision. They can slingshot into small worlds, recreate them into madness or textual beauty.From game comes art and from art comes collision and from collision becomes new pathways through institutions too broken and powerful to continue.
It’s a bizarre and wonderful work me thinks. 
cheers, Jason

 

Howdy Chief….

Hi Jason!
that’s pretty awesome! I appreciate you went through all the hassle.. it definitely was worth it 🙂
as for the submission.. could you put the concept into a single paragraph? (or two, if needed)
also do you know of a way of directly uploading your work to the pavilion site? preferably with all the functionality preserved. i mean, what format is it? flash? java? other?
oh right, now i see you sent me an email… so thats ticked, the concept part
now… how do we get it on spam.catering?

jason hi!
i guess you d appreciate somewhat more elaborate critique than what i provided you with… which you definitely deserve… its just im super busy but i ll get there
in any case, id be very happy to showcase your piece in my pavilion just need to figure out, how to get it up and running on my site. do you have any ideas?

I was just about to text you. And then became sidetracked by the horror of humans with guns.
I do have a finished work…..just finished it. Was having heaps of issues…..
But it’s finished.
The idea is government language…specifically….US government language as spam.
All told through an Angry Birds Engine
It’s called Myopic Blossums

 

What did you need for the submission?
————————-
Hey Jason!
Thanks for the praise!:)
Pavilion is due for an inspection by the wrong masterminds on 15th so I tried to get people to send me the work by today but as you may guess, everyone is only planning to rock at this stage.. so yes, end of the next week would be just fine
Really looking forward 🙂

Hi Jason! How is your work evolving? Im about to start uploading some of the submissions. there is still is quite some time left before it opens to public so no rush, but if you do have anything finished id be happy to put it online Cheers! Mizu

 

Hi again Just to update you on the deadlines. On 15th, the biennale opens to private and press previews so by then all should be more or less set. However, spam pavilion will continue accepting submissions throughout the duration of the bienalle, i.e. till 31st of Jan. Id be happy to feature some of your work from the very beginning, but if you need more time, than there is a way too.
If none of this suits you anymore or you discovered you don’t like to participate anymore, just let me know and i ll stop spamming you 😉

Howdy Michal, Absolutely I would be interested in submitting something. I fondly recall the Wrong from 16 and 14. And I love your call for work on the website. Damn good. Indeed, I can make something new for you. But I would need a few more days beyond today, the 15th, your deadline. So, can I send you something by the end of next week? giant and scratchy cheers, Jason

Dear Mr. Jason,
I am curator at “curating spam” pavilion (www.spam.catering) of the wrong biennale (www.thewrong.org), which you may have heard about.
To make long story short, I really like what you do and I was wondering whether you’d like to submit some of your work – past or new – to the biennale. If so, please get back to me
Best Regards
Michal
