diffraction | NET | Vague terrain 05 | i8u

Vagueterrain.net the Toronto-based digital arts quarterly, has just
launched its fifth issue: vague terrain 05: minimalism.This issue is
dedicated to an exploration of minimalism and technology through various
texts and multimedia projects which document and explore reductionism.

minimalism in 100 words or less

If there is one thing that is certain about minimalism it is that you need to use less than 100 or more than 5000 words to discuss the subject. We’ve brought together a diverse range of work which explores minimalism through sound, time and space, questions the use of technology, traces genealogy and discusses methodology. Please take some time to explore the body of work we’ve curated. Enjoy!
