I explore media in transition. My research encompasses film, video, print, digital arts, and the web. I'm interested in what artists and writers are doing and in what critics and scholars are saying.

VirtualDayz 2.0

I'm planning to revive this blog, VirtualDayz, and continue the explorations of personal and cultural memory that my earlier posts addressed. (Entries from June 2005 to July 2006 are documented in the book VirtualDayz: Remediated Visions & Digital Memories and in a Kindle edition.)

I'm looking for projects to critique, so please feel free to recommend innovative approaches to personal or cultural memory that use some form of new media, a term I use broadly. When I began a "Webliography" of such works about ten years ago, I used the following categories: online diaries/journals; self-representations/memoirs; letters; travelogues; representations of others; memorials/remembrances (with special section devoted to 9/11); and fan sites. I'll have to update these categories.

Note: Abridged versions of self-representations and letters have been posted on this blog.
