Winner of the N. Katherine Hayles Award for Criticism of Electronic Literature from the Electronic Literature Organization There is electronic literature that consists of works, and the authors and communities and practices around such works. This is not a book about that electronic literature. It is not a book that charts histories or genres of this emerging field, not a book setting out methods of reading and understanding. The Internet Unconscious is a book on the poetics of net writing, or more precisely on the subject of writing the net. By 'writing the net', Sandy Baldwin proposes three ways of analysis: 1) an understanding of the net as a loosely linked collocation of inscriptions, of writing practices and materials ranging from fundamental TCP/IP protocols to CAPTCHA and Facebook; 2) as a discursive field that codifies and organizes these practices and materials into text (and into textual practices of reading, archiving, etc.), and into an aesthetic institution of 'electronic literature'; and 3) as a project engaged by a subject, a commitment of the writers' body to the work of the net. The Internet Unconscious describes the poetics of the net's “becoming-literary,” by employing concepts that are both technically-specific and poetically-charged, providing a coherent and persuasive theory. The incorporation and projection of sites and technical protocols produces an uncanny displacement of the writer's body onto diverse part objects, and in turn to an intense and real inhabitation of the net through writing. The fundamental poetic situation of net writing is the phenomenology of “as-if.” Net writing involves construal of the world through the imaginary.

Ancient gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, and fabulous creatures are alive and well within our unconscious. Sigmund Freud speaks of "endopsychic myths" and "psycho-mythology"; C.G. Jung, of the "mythopoeic imagination" and the "mythforming structural elements" of the psyche. James Hillman contends that "the essence of the psyche is myth." Michael Vannoy Adams provides persuasive examples of how myths appear in our dreams and fantasies and does so with erudition, wit, and eloquent clarity. Adam's authoritative study, now appearing in a second, expanded edition, has won high praise from fellow analysts. Ginette Paris called The Mythological Unconscious "a treasure trove of the imagination," and Beverly Zabriskie cited its "balance of charm and scholarship, humor and gravitas, which simultaneously amuses and enlightens."

He explores issues of attachment, relationships, inter-subjectivity, and neuroscience, and shows their relevance to the virtual world. He discusses the question of intimacy and develops a new concept of E-intimacy that better suits internet bonding. He also examines the multicultural issues found in internet forums, and the leadership qualities needed to manage these issues. Finally, he claims that there is a link which connects us through the world wide web: the internet unconscious.

Have you ever wondered what people are thinking or feeling about you or what you are actually saying in the midst of a conversation?Between the Lines is an extraordinary account, as well as a practical and pioneering method, for recognizing, uncovering, and explaining hidden meaning in everyday conversation. Haskell, an expert in unconscious meaning, shows how our mind uses feelings, sounds, and language to simultaneously hide and reveal what we secretly think and feel during conversation. His intriguing book is filled with episodes from everyday life that reveal our true feelings and concerns about friends, family, co-workers, and others that are often suppressed in social situations.Between the Lines is required for anyone who needs to uncover what people are truly thinking and feeling. It is a book for people who not only want to see how language and the unconscious mind work but also to achieve their goals through a better understanding of what is being said during conversation.

Mirrors of Absurdity

ABSTRACT: This work consists of two parts.

ABSTRACT: This work consists of two parts. The first part is a collection of photographs, drawings and text installed in the display case in the hallway of the Fine Arts C building. The second part is a video projection inside the Focus Gallery. The video runs on a twenty-minute loop and consists of four basic chapters. The subject matter of the images in both the display case and the video projection is animals. I shot many of the photographs, but many others have been culled and collected from other sources, such as the internet and books. Similarly, I wrote some of the text pieces, but others were taken from news stories and works of fiction. Much of my interest in this project is in exploring the notion of the subjective as an effective research strategy. I have arranged the images in the case according to a loose, personal taxonomy that uses an obsessive curiosity about certain details of certain images to generate a fluid series of nodes or groupings.

The lost continent of Lemuria, the land of Mu, is a place that history has nearly forgotten. Yet it lives on in the mythology of Hindus and Australian Aborigines, Polynesians and American Indians. Its place is likewise secure beside Atlantis in the metaphysical speculations of Occult pioneers Madame Blavatsky and Edgar Cayce, as well as New Age channelers and soothsayers.

The work of Catalan artist Eulalia Valldosera links to the human body and the representation through the conceptual pieces. Her installations formed by objects, cinematic devices, and projected images in the space surround the spectator and produce nearly a magical effect. The retrospective, which the Reina Sofia Museum dedicates to the artist, allows to get to know her initial works, barely shown previously, that include drawings, photography or single-channel videos. Besides, Valldosera will present the work Alma Mater, a monumental multichannel installation created especially for this show. Dependences consists of two elements, a DVD based on the installation in the MNCARS, including all the exhibited work, and a book that collects two unpublished texts, written by Bartomeu Mara and the re-edition of a text by Jorge Luis Marzo written in 1996.
