Death of an Alchemist
Back in 2015, media artist Andrew Burrell and I made this digital artwork—novel? animation? data visualization? curated collection?—called Death of an Alchemist.
The idea is to create a novel out of real-time data, that updates as you read it.
While the work was never completed in full, the first “chapter” was exhibited at two international shows: the Electronic Literature Organization “Interventions” exhibition in Bergen, Norway and the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) “New Text” show in Vancouver, Canada.
We got a nice call-out in the Chronicle of Higher Education.
