blobs, wiggles, folds and distortions

  • GAIL PETER BORDEN

Abstract

The borderland existing in contemporary digital technology is the unexplored terrain. Representing the same manifest destiny of the newly discovered American continent, the self-sustainability of westward expansion and monetary potential of the 1980's world of high finance has each been usurped by the current opportunities of the digital realm. The new landscape breeds promise and possibility represented by the edge condition and the outlaw: the individual that employs the lack of orderly cultural domination to re-evaluate their moral boundaries by defining their own way of living. The train-robbing bandits have redefined the six-shooter as John Draper discovered that a Cap'n Crunch™ whistle produces a tone activating AT&T's free calling in 1971 birthed the hacker.
