It's a fascinating process, reminds me of meditation on one hand and jazz
/ improvisation on the other, the restraints creating the framework. For
me as a viewer, it's also a hunt to click to the next segment. I remember
Jodi's taking control of the browser, turning it into something else,
something alien; there's something of that as well. But also the
continuous production, which I relate to. I wonder what it would have been
like to have one playdamage, constantly added to, perhaps not even
announced, something like a growing thing, which this is.
And thanks! It's fantastic when people write about their work of course!

> It is like a subjective journal using the browser widow and the code of the page as the journal. Not a blog with just text or a tumblr with just discrete images. The source visuals are usually found online and I modulate and animate them (that is the play/damage), but sometimes they are my own photographs. View Source on each page for audio and visual source credits. I always finish them in a few hours. If my other art projects are like tournament chess, then these playdamage screens are like speed chess.
> Used to be my constraint was that each page be under 100K. Then 350K. Now I try to keep each page under 1000K. So it is a game of minimal maxilism. How to tease out the greatest visceral affect from the least bandwidth. The themes repeat themselves because I keep thinking about the same things I guess. Jesus? face, my wife?s face, my own face, faces and bodies and process code of other internet art people, remixing my own prior code and visuals. There was a season when I made about one per month. Then sometimes I will just make one per year. I will just keep making them until i die.
