  1. Thank you for posting this. Earlier in my class we covered Ursonography, his collaboration with Golan Levin. “Where are they now” is often asked when I discuss these works. Its nice for students to see these works as a continuation of humanities exploration. So far we’ve looked at Leonard Richardson’s computational prose, Allison Parish twitterbots, Sosolimited’s political works and TTad Hirsch’s xtMob–>Twitter. Its so encouraging to see artists and researchers iterating on a long trajectory of personally meaningful inquiry.
