Without a Trace takes as its point of departure the idea of a daily ritual. The site is meant to change once a day. For each iteration (each day for a year) a comic image, a trace drawing and three words from the original strip will be randomly selected from the archive. These are presented with a live news feed (RSS headline) and an image taken from the New York Times. As news is fluid during a given day the headlines and news images can change creating new juxtapositions. At the end of the project there will be an archive presenting the screen grabs for the year. |
Without a Trace is a 2008-09 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation.
