Without a Trace, 2008-9

  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.
