Machinebook

I just lost a couple of hours to Machinebook and I’m okay with that. Machinebook can have my time and more. This is “an art project examining communication, relationships and sexuality in the post`90s information culture,” and it’s a brilliant place to lose yourself. Part claustrophobic writings that take on Kathy Acker inklings, part technological collage, this labyrinthine site connects the reader from one page to the next without giving any idea of what’s to come next. The writing and art found here can be frighteningly compelling, treading between the abstract and brutally introspective. Hyperlinks appear a few times throughout each text, giving no indication where they lead to. This isn’t really a problem at all because none of them lead into any place you’d be in a hurry to get out of–kind of like Choose Your Own Adventure for the artful digirati. If I needed to find a reason to be on the Internet, this would be it. (Liz Worth)
