How to convey ephemeral, performative practices based around unique and 
inventive media within the fixed and standardized format of a book?

This publication by iii presents itself as a large pack of cards that 
the reader is invited to explore. The cards are shuffled at random, 
forcing intruders to reverse engineer its sorting algorithm.  Each 
individual copy of the book was manually assembled following a 
procedural score composed by Lars Kynde and performed by iii.

Contributions range from theoretical essays to poetic exercises with 
text and image reflecting a wide range of practices seeking radically 
subjective approaches to media in performance. DIY media technologies, 
avant-garde music rituals, artistic-scientific hybrids, idiosyncratic 
new instruments, speculative business approaches, phenomenological 
investigations, open-source and feminist perspectives on digital culture 
are all present here as part of a cut-up treatise on media less traveled.
