I want to thank Michael and Geert both, Marc also - for supporting my 
work. I do think it's way past time for a consideration of Geert's work - 
I know Michael has feedback on webartery (and gives feed- back), but 
Geert's consistent and poetic output needs attention. Even though he 
produces 'pieces' real or virtual (and he certainly problematizes the 
distinction), he's also working through - at least for me - architectures 
which meld into one another temporally and spatially - the pieces are now, 
are in the future, might have been in the past. There are references to 
the whole history of conceptualism, but also the histories of bodies and 
spaces. And that's coupled with a narrative of deep 'wit' that goes way 
beyond cleverness. Finally, he's been able to work through a form that 
really is part and parcel of the Web - and is one of the few 'artists' to 
have done so. The references to the artworld are clear, but they open up 
to unfathomable inner virtualities that we participate in simply by 

- Alan (another sleepless night, hopes this makes sense)
